    Anybody Here Make Cheese?

    I find watching how cheese is made quite interesting. I am puzzled why anybody would have originally bothered to do the things they do to cheese to make the different varieties............and then eat something that is obviously in a state of decay. Anybody?

    This And Your Short time In History Is Now Coming To An End

    Teenagers did mostly as their parents did until 'Rock&Roll' came about in the 1950's. Then teenagers and even younger had something to associate their age groups with. As the generations grew up into adults, the music was passed down as it was played on radios and home music devices by...

    Stereo Shotgun Microphones

    I was talking with someone regards recording outdoors. They said my Rode Ngt2 would be better replaced with a stereo shotgun mic for recording things like cars to give the stereo speaker effect. I had never thought anything about this before or even knew that there were stereo shotgun mics...
