These monitors were handcrafted by Larry Jackson, the same master craftsman that produced the original Westlake Audio classics and current Ocean-Way high-end studio monitors. They were built from the original blueprints of the George Augspurger-designed monitors that were crafted for Michael Jackson’s Encino property studio.

(We do have the original copy of the actual blueprints from the Jackson studio that will be included with this listing)

In addition to following the spec of the original design, they were taken to the next level of performance with some very nice upgrades.

Seven stage process to deaden port material w/ hypo-allergenic foam in place of standard fiberglass insulation.
Most all hardware is Titanium
No particle board or MDF used in the building of the cabinets. Only select ‘true’ 1″ E. European plywood with 2×4 bracing and finished in real Pau Ferro Rosewood veneer
All internal wiring by Kimber Kable with an additional rubberized flex insulation overlay.
Original fitted with TAD TD-4001 Mid Frequency drivers. Over the course of 3 years of testing, including many drivers from JBL and other manufacturers, the McCauley proved the best.

PHYSICAL CONDITION: Excellent. The cabinets are very clean. T-215A 001A has a very small chip in the veneer on the face of the cabinet at its bottom edge. T-215A 002A has a dust cover that has a faint dimple and the mid horn has 2 small dings that have been covered with a black marker. The horns have a few small chips and nicks that noticeable upon close inspection.

The tweeters have scuffs on the outer housing from the way they’re mounted in the stands. The high-frequency input terminal gasket on T-215a 001A is a little loose, as the panel is missing two screws but does not affect operation at all. All 6 cables are in very good condition but a few of the tips need to be replaced. Overall in amazing condition!

WORKING CONDITION: Excellent. All cabinets are internally wired with very high-quality cable and components and sound phenomenal. The low-frequency cabinets are particularly robust, deep and impactful, while the mid-high cabinets give a graceful, deep soundstage. The additional tweeters finish the top octaves, bringing clarity and smooth detail to the picture. These speakers can go loud but sound excellent at any volume level. Overall in excellent condition!

Just a bit of audio porn. Anything Augspurger is at the top of the world class class. And I love stuff like this. I dream of owning them just because they can truly reproduce the sounds of whatever we put through them. There are other companies that are cool, too, like the Ocean Ways and Westlakes mentioned above and super monitors like Barefoot, PMC, ATC and folks like that. Most are custom made for the individual studios. They are all, in a word, stunning. But Idk, I just dig Augspurgers.

Hey guys,

An interesting video came in this afternoon.

Im posting a link to it because I want some input from you all.
This object apparently flew over the city of Toronto in a minute and a half – with multiple witnesses in differing parts of the city.

Some of you know my full time job involves Drones, so I’m very familiar with how they fly, their differing capabilities between a consumer level drone vs an industrial level drone.
All consumer and industrial level Drones need to be equipped with always-on red lights, and blinking or off green lights.
This object has neither.
I’m going to provide some information to assist you guys with taking an educated guess,
however as always, some stuff needs to be vague or left out to ensure the witnesses identities are not made public.

witness #3 was on the other side of the city. They did not get anything on video, but their recollection of events matched the original witnesses.

The sighting took place on May 26,2020 At 20:51 hrs.

The video is genuine – there are no signs of manipulation.
The witness who submitted the video is very credible and holds a masters degree while working in a high level position.
They have no reason to make a false claim.

The Witness estimated the object being 10-15 ft long, flying against the wind at approximately 200 meters AGL.

There’s Nothing on Flightradar24.
No NOTAMs issued for a drone flight over the city.
A top of the line consumer level drone has up to 8 km range.
However, flying at that distance, a drone pilot is going to need video transmission to ensure they get their $3000 investment back.
A lot of factors interfere with drone video transmission – buildings, weather and other electronics broadcasting on the same 2.4 or 5Ghz.

The object flew a straight trajectory until it disappeared.

The witness first noticed the object out over the city int he distance.
They were able to run into the apartment and grab their camera, however they left the tripod in the house because they were in a hurry to get something on video before it disappeared.

Anyway, take a look at the video, and throw out some ideas.
Any questions, I’ll try to answer the best I can.

I would say that it is definitely more L-shaped than triangular but the angles are indeed triangular in general, so, yeah, okay.

Yeah, another stolen post but a nice one, at least.

Frank Zappa – Pygmy Twylyte/The Idiot Bastard Son/Dickie’s Such An Asshole (Live at The Roxy 1973)

Pierre Borduas
Jan 20, 2019

Released as part of the 1974 live LP Roxy & Elsewhere, “Pygmy Twylyte” was a regular feature during Frank Zappa’s 1973-1974 tour but never reappeared afterwards. The “original” version is a short (two minutes), fast-paced song with a twisted melody exploiting all of singer Napoleon Murphy Brock’s wide range. Lyrics make absolutely no sense: “Green hocker croakin’/In the Pygmy Twylyte/Crankin’ an’ a-coke’n/In the Winchell’s do-nut Midnite.” It roughly looks like a leftover leaf from Zappa’s “life on the road” songbook or maybe a drug-addict spoof similar to “It Just Might Be a One-Shot Deal.” In any case, the lyrics are mostly irrelevant to the song — their role was to make Brock’s life as difficult as possible.

The Roxy version was recorded early in the tour and extensively overdubbed in the studio later. The performance included on You Can’t Do That on Stage Anymore, Vol. 2, from a late-1974 show, is all the more significant. Lasting almost nine minutes, it is taken at a considerably slower tempo, in an altogether different key with more mutated vocals. More importantly, it features a whole new chunk of music as it indulges in a strange progressive disco vamp — and a guitar solo of course. The two available recordings could almost be seen as entirely different pieces if it were not for their shared set of lyrics. The fact that Zappa never performed the piece after 1974 turned “Pygmy Twylyte” into an obscure title.

I love this. You’ll never know how much I love this and the whole album and concert. Even though I didn’t get to go. This was a MAJOR influence on the teenage Ig.

Aldabra white-throated rail bird

An extinct bird just ‘evolved itself’ back into existence

The Aldabra hasn’t existed in almost 100,000 years. Now it’s back

By Thomas Shambler
18 May 2020

The Aldabra white-throated rail bird was declared extinct, a victim of rising sea levels almost 100,000 years ago.

However, the flightless brown bird has recently been spotted – leaving scientists scratching their heads as to how – and why – the species has come back to life.

According to research in the Zoological Journal of Linnean Society, the re-incarnated Aldabra bird is a product of ‘iterative evolution’. That’s when old genes thought to have died out re-emerge at a different point in time.

That means that while a bird’s ancestors might have disappeared, that DNA still remains – and provided the environment is right, there’s nothing to stop those ancient genes from replicating in modern times.

So identical species can indeed produce multiple, slightly evolved offshoots, throughout the course of their species’ history.

But don’t get your hopes up that this means dinosaurs and wooly mammoths will be popping up next. This scientific phenomenon only occurs within species that are nearly identical to their ancestors.

While iterative evolution has previously occurred in species such as turtles, it has never been seen in the realm of birds.

“We know of no other example in the rails, or of birds in general, that demonstrates this phenomenon so evidently,” said paleobiologist David Martill, in a statement.

“Only on the Aldabra, which has the oldest paleontological record of any oceanic island within the Indian Ocean region, is fossil evidence available that demonstrates the effects of changing sea levels on extinction and recolonization events.”

2020 was already an interesting and confusing year. Looks like now we have to contend with re-materializing birds, as well.

This is fascinating. And rather exciting, too. At least, to me it is. I have always loved this sort of thing; and the more exotic and rare the occurrence, the more I like it. Because discovery and new knowledge is what it’s all about. accompanied always by renewed wisdom, of course.

Various birds and a squirrel enjoy the ingestion of nutrients available in my front yard at ~10:30am on Sundae, May 24, 2020. Sadly, the resident chipmunk didn’t attend the festivities. Shot on a Samsung Galaxy S7 edge.

Lookin’ out my front door…

Phone cameras are so lame. Skinny little wide angle miniframes with no control of focal length. I dunno, I was trained on Arriflex, Eclair and Bolex cameras. Real cameras. I would like to get a real video camera, but I am not in that paygrade. Oh, hey, I could break out my Lumix. I hope it still works. That’s if I can find it…

Sorry, but that circuit board is from an old digital satellite TV receiver (set-top box).

You can see the big black connector with 21 pins, it’s the European SCART connector for the video and audio signals from the box to your TV. Very old-school, introduced first in French TV sets in late 1970s.

The metal cover with COV-19 text is shielding the connection of a normal threaded F type connector for the satellite head on your dish. Between these two you may also spot a USB connector and a round connector, something like a 3.5mm audio connector.

Sorry, but this circuit board is fully safe to use without a foil hat or a face mask

#BBR Cryptid-Paranormal Investigations
May 8, 2020

An incident that happened one evening when they had to wait at a crime scene until other units arrived. The scene was a death, and the body showed signs of predation. Whilst at the scene a female Officer saw a strange creature in the woodland. The potential crime scene was in fact the body of a man who was found half eaten in his tent. He’d been missing a few years and living rough apparently. And it was assumed to be predication. …………………. All was well just happily playing, when he stated that he felt threatened…. looking around he saw two tall – over 6 ft – very skinny men, naked – or having some form of loincloth (he couldn’t remember) white skinned with reddish pink spirals painted on their bodies, but worse than that their heads looked like cats…………….By now all of the children had re-emerged out of the cave. They had all heard something moving in there that didn’t sound right, so as kids do they started running. Straight home would have taken them past the noise so they had to run towards a Golf Club. After a while as they were running they all saw something impossible to explain other than ‘It’. She couldn’t describe what ‘It’ was just that it was running towards them.

The Beast of Dartmoor

 

The Beast of Dartmoor

 

The Beast of Dartmoor

The Beast of Dartmoor

Dartmoor in England is one of the most famous National Parks in the UK, first founded in 1951. Dartmoor is known for it’s endless moors, ancient bridges, forests, valleys, granite tors, and wild ponies. However, in recent years, the most famous feature of the landscape has become the ‘Beast of Dartmoor’- a creature of folklore and cryptozoology, that just recently has come into the light as more than just an urban legend.

The first ever sightings of the beast began in the 1970s, and gained popularity in the 80s. The story was noticed by the BBC when a South Molton farmer lost over 100 sheep, all which had had their throats torn out. It was established that no native animal could have inflicted those injuries. Sightings have stated that the beast is a large black feline creature, which lead many to speculate that it was an escaped pet panther- around the time of the first sighting it became illegal to own big cats outside of zoos, and so some believe it was released so the owner would not get in trouble. However, a panther only lives arounnd 12-15 years (factoring in that a pet panther would also have no survival skills for British terrain), which doesn’t make sense giving the time span of the sightings which still continue to this day.

In 1983, after the sheep incident and other reports of dead livestock, the Royal Marine Snipers were sent out onto the moors to find the beast. The beast was sighted by the snipers, however they were not able to shoot as it was standing infront of a sheep, and they knew the bullet would pass through and kill both animals. By 1987, the beast was linked to over 200 animal deaths, including dogs and cats as well as livestock. In 2006, the British Big Cats Society found a skull on a farm in Devon which was confirmed to be a large big cat.

Over the years since people have continued to spot the beast- all descriptions claim the animal to be around eight feet long and having the ability to leap 6 foot tall fences. One man claimed to see the beast fishing with it’s paw in the River Barle, after which he said he believed the creature lived inside an abandoned mine out on the nearby moor. The amount of sightings soon lead scientists to believe there could be more than one ‘beast’. The Daily Express newspaper offered a reward for the capture of the beast, dead or alive. Over the years, many photographs have arisen as evidence, showing what appears to be a panther with the features of other large cats. These photographs were analysed and it is clear that the creature has features of both a black leopard and a mountain lion- a hybrid is possible (a Pumapard), however they are almost always born with dwarfism and die early. This also doesn’t support the idea of multiple beasts, as Pumapards are sterile.

The case seemed to be going nowhere until it was recently discovered that in the 1970s, famous circus owner Mary Chipperfield released three large cats onto the moors of Dartmoor after her circus was forced to close in 1978. Mary was supposed to transport five cats across the moors, but only two ever arrived at their destination. It is now believed that the three cats bred over the years and their offspring became the new ‘beasts’ of Dartmoor. Sightings seemed to stop after 2010, leading some to believe that the cats did not survive the harsh winter of that year. However, more recently sightings have started again all over England, meaning the ‘beasts’ could very well have survived and still be roaming the moors to this day.

Via moonlight-gives-you-nightmares

ABCs, they call them, standing for Alien Big Cats. Like leopards and mountain lions, they are large and well formed. They are not supposed to exist on the Isles of Albion, hence the aura of mystery. There have been so many sightings, though, that their existence is pretty well set. In my opinion, anyway.

Just tabbies, you say? LOL
