Hello Ancestors. Stereo From Ninth Grade. Sound Design.



Hello my future ancestor's. This is your great, great, great grand pappy Dr Zibbs. I see you've found my blog.... Step inside and find out who I was. Or perhaps you're about to have me regenerated and you want to learn a bit about me so you can have something to talk about when I come to? Is that it?

Wouldn't that be great if you found stuff that your great, great, great grand pappy wrote? Well mine will know me because I might have my blog address written on my tombstone so all my future relatives that mourn can see what I was all about. Not really. I'm being cremated. Not sure if I'll get a tombstone. Come to think about it I probably should. Maybe I'll have a monitor on it that flashes my hundreds of blog posts up so people walking by can read it. ...Hey! get back to work groundskeeper and stop reading my blog!

So I think I'm going to start mixing in things from my past for the people of the future to see. So they can see how I lived. And how I played.

Like for example that stereo above? That's the exact stereo I got in ninth grade. The brand is a Sound Design. It was the most expensive stereo in 1979. OK not really. I was kind of embarrassed by the name of it but it did rock.

How do you people of the future listen to your music?

12" vinyl on a Technics deck (bought in about 1986) through a Pioneer amp (bought about 1981 by my wife's brother which she inherited on his sad untimely demise the following year) through some Wharfedale speakers I bought second hand from an old second hand shop in about 1993 I think.... No seriously we do still listen to some stuff like that... Oh those new fangled CD things we put through the same amp and speakers on a NAD player bought in mid 1990s

Still have an AM/FM Pioneer tuner and Pioneer tape deck connect to it all was well ... but can't remember when I used either of them! :-) I did nearly buy a cheap DAB tuner last year to replace that

I had one very similar but it had an 8trac in it, ha.

Bama - I also had a double cassette deck. Never had the 8 track.

Oh my!! That stereo takes me back....my dad has one like that, and that thing is still alive and kicking.

Dr Zibbs said...

Choleesa - Your dad? Doh!

Hey, whenever I asked my parents for a stereo, I got a clock radio, so I think your Sound Design is pretty rad.

This makes a lovely entry into your internet time capsule.

Greetings from the future. Please don't tell current me that I've commented on here because I'll only want to pester me for information, and I can be quite annoying, I can tell me.

Anyway, here in the future (or tomorrow days as we call it), we have recently replaced our MP29 format for something called vinyl.

It's a futuristic, jet-black disk like a large version of those CDs we used to have when we were young. Nowadays, of course, we all know that bigger is better.

So something to look forward to there.

Nanoo nanoo.

The (Future) Jules
