Good morning. I noticed that Harry's album was recorded with split audio - different audio in the left and right. Sorry, I don't know the technical term for it. I know this was very common in the 60s & 70s, so not surprising he would use the technique, but it it used commonly now it is this unique for the time? Thank you for your insight. 💖

Hi!

I haven’t had the chance to listen carefully with headphones, so I can’t tell you what I hear on specific songs, but here’s a brief answer, and I will come back again once I’ve heard the songs on headphones.

So, in audiophile terms (at least from my limited knowledge), the reason for splitting the sound between right and left is to image the sound.

High fidelity equipment, with high fidelity audio playback equipment, needs to have the proper room diffusing/ insulation and the proper speaker placements. When one plays the music recorded in a live venue, and with split audio, one can hear the music as if it’s being played in a three-dimensional space. The physics take a bit of time to explain, but it has to do with the pure diffusion of sound from dipole speakers and the way sound waves propagate and cancel each other out in an insulated space. When you go to concert halls and see baffles hung from the ceiling or walls, they are diffusing the sound.

You can actually hear where each musician is standing in the room, like ghost images. Harry in front, guitarist to the right, drummer in back and so forth.

It’s actually eerie to hear music played back like that– like you are in the room with the musicians. It’s a sound hologram– almost as if you can touch them.

Pop is almost NEVER recorded like this. First, the voices are often recorded on a separate track, tuned and then mixed back with the instrumentals. Second, pop uses a lot of electronic effects that are not recorded acoustically but are produced digitally. EDM is almost all digital sound effects. Digitally recorded sound are not placeable, because it isn’t mic’d and doesn’t obey the physics of sound. Listen to any 1980’s Madonna recording and you’ll hear how flat it is.

Jazz is almost always recorded like this. Jazz is recorded as an acoustic ensemble with usually two or three microphones, and imaging can be amazing.

Imaging is best with music that uses little electronic processing– songs with acoustic guitars will image better than songs with electric guitars, for instance.

To get the best sound, you want the best recording medium.

Audiophiles argue, but it’s now agreed that SACDs (high memory capacity CDs) have the same ability to capture high fidelity sound as vinyl. But for decades, vinyl was the medium of choice because most CDs compressed sound (to fit data onto discs). There’s also something about vinyl sound that is warmer and rounder than digital sound, although I’ve done a few blinded hearing tests with high fidelity equipment that showed no difference to me.

If you have the luxury of a high fidelity system, play your vinyl record, and then find the sweet spot to sit and listen (usually in a room, there is only one sweet spot). Again, this is my limited experience.

One way you can do this is to bring your CD or vinyl to a store that sells hi fi equipment– find a store in a big city that has an insulated auditioning room with speakers that cost $10,000 per pair and up. That’s the kind of snobby, esoteric store you want. They will have a system that costs over $50k, and then you can ask to pop in your Pink Album (these stores sell $3k CD players and turntables with cartridges that cost more than $3k, so your CD or vinyl will be well cared for). These rooms sound as if you’re dead, because you literally cannot hear any echoes. The sales people are usually pretty nice. Ask to sit or stand in the sweet spot; they’ll know what you’re talking about. Then enjoy to your heart’s content. You might have the perfect listening experience, Harry and his band playing for you in a private performance, close enough to touch.

Addendum: I will add if I hear specific details about the songs. A friend told me that “From the Dining Table” has Harry singing from two different locations, right and left. I’ll have to listen for the artistic reason for this choice. Thanks.
Lord of the Flies

Pairing: Finn Balor x original character

Summary: “In demon form, Bael is said to appear in the forms of a man, cat, toad, or combination of those. In human form he is said to be muscular with brown hair and bright eyes that change color to match his energy.”

WARNING: Whether or not you believe in demons, it’s VERY IMPORTANT to take the advice of supernatural and paranormal experts of the past before you continue. There is one big rule when looking at the names of demons. And that is: NEVER SAY A DEMON’S NAME OUT LOUD. I repeat: NEVER SAY A DEMON’S NAME OUT LOUD.

Speaking a demon’s name may or may not do any harm, but in supernatural theory, speaking a demon’s name gives it power and summons it to you. If you are already being haunted by a demon, saying its name will only increase its power over you, which is very, very bad. So, whether or not you believe this warning, just know you have been warned. Don’t say the name out loud.

You gaped at the picture. But, seeing that no one had barged into your room this morning to confront you about the notebook, it was safe to say that no one suspected it was yours. You brought it back to your room, ever curious about the mystery artist, but too afraid to ask anyone about it. You forgot about it for the rest of the week, caught up in work and the stress that came along with it.

Secretary Ross had come down pretty hard on everyone this week. Tony had warned you, tried to get the team to be more careful on missions. But during the most recent one Hydra had targeted Bucky. And Steve, the self-sacrificing friend he always was, had barely gotten everyone out unscathed. The result had been successful, Steve had argued, but Ross still wanted him suspended for at least a month as punishment, and Bucky permanently for being an conflict of interest.

The Perks of Being a Wallflower: Patrick [ENTP]

Extroverted Intuition (Ne): Patrick is a highly creative individual whose interests lie outside school rather than inside it, so he uses his immense talent for impersonating people and other shenanigans to the great amusement of his fellow students. He’d much rather be out having fun and making a mockery of something with wit, sarcasm, and general hilarity, than attending to his homework, which results in his persistently low grades. However, Patrick can always talk himself in and out of just about anything, even with his teachers. Ideas and stories interest him most, and he is good at telling them as well as demanding good ones from other people.

Introverted Thinking (Ti): Despite his cavalier attitude toward life, Patrick is actually quite smart. He sizes up situations in silence and then reacts to them through his emotional side. He prefers not to be too serious, but instead to keep things light. He has a rapier wit, able to spot inconsistencies in things people say, and irrational statements, and use them to slingshot back a joke or an insult. He can be very sarcastic and somewhat blunt if he puts his mind to it, but…

Extroverted Feeling (Fe): … he often softens his criticisms with a twinkle in his eye and a smile. Patrick cares very much about his friends and family, and would fight to the death for them; though he sluffs off the insults of classmates who don’t like his gayness, Patrick is actually quite hurt by them. He’s devastated when his boyfriend denies their relationship and lets the other boys beat him up. He is aware of the emotional tones in the room and likes to diffuse them whenever he can; he’s also willing to share his feelings, although he is slow to talk about them at first.

Introverted Sensing (Si): He has a sense of sentimentality for the past, as is shown in his gift of a suit to Charlie for Christmas (because all the greatest old writers wore classy suits). Like Sam, he loves old songs and also does the same part in the same play for months on end, without it ever getting old. But his lack of attention in class and his general disinterest in details makes him a “flunkie.”

Psycho Pass Movie Novel Chpt. 2 - Part 1 of 2

Half of chapter two is done. This part is really nice and features some scenes already seen in the movie and some new scenes.

 

Akane and Kaori meeting.

Gino’s shower scene. (sorry, I don’t have a pic for this one. If some talented artist would like to make one, I would happily put it here).

Sugou and Hinakawa training.

Thanks to my dear Beth, who has the patience to read and fix all my messes and give me always good advices.

 

Note before reading: sentences in italics represent the character’s thoughts.

1

In the chief office at the Public Safety Bureau headquarters, behind the desk, Tsunemori was facing her superior — Kasei Jōshū. Chief Kasei, who is a part of the Sibyl System.

It was not a metaphor; she was a mechanical body, the container of a packaged ‘brain’.

Finding out that thing had been a shock for Tsunemori and even now she could remember her sense of hatred*, but she had completely gotten used to behaving in a manner so as not to show it openly.

Preference #3 : Pleasuring you (smut)

Harry: I moaned as Harry attached his lips to my neck, his strong hands holding onto my hips as I clutched onto the tiny sink behind me. We were currently on our way from London to LA, and somehow, in the middle of the 10 hour flight, I found myself feeling a very strong need of physical contact. I cupped his cheeks in my hands as his tongue explored my mouth, his hands wandering lower down my body. I let out a loud exhale as he finally rested his hand on the inside of my lace panties, applying pressure to my clit. He chuckled at my reaction as he continued sucking marks on my neck, whilst working his magic on my bundle of nerves, having me over the edge and giving me the much needed relief within a matter minutes.

Liam: I let my head fall back against the pillow, the tensions slowly disappearing from my body as Liam continued kissing around my most private area. After a day filled with stress and negativity, he had been doing everything in his power to help me relax ever since I got home, needless to say the current method was definitely working. I moaned blissfully as he returned to licking my clit, alternating between that and wrapping his soft lips around the bundle in sucking motions. I squirmed lightly as he slipped one his fingers inside me, expertly moving it against my g-spot. My eyes fluttered shut and my legs started shaking, as Liam with the perfect amount of gently intensity, softly brought me to an endorphin boosting climax.

Louis: “We really should be entertaining our guests right now and not this” I shakily stated as Louis momentarily removed his lips from mine to start peppering kisses down my chest area. “Is that really what you think, birthday girl?” he teasingly smirked, slipping the night blue straps of my dress down my shoulders. “Ah” I groaned as he pressed himself closer to me, his excitement poking against my bare thigh. “Just get on with it” I moaned as his hands roamed above the waistline of my thongs, sending shivers all over my body. He chuckled against my neck, as he suddenly slipped two of his fingers inside me, intently curling them against my g-spot. I tangled my fingers in his hair as he continued making me feel more and more aroused with every move, making sure this part of the night was something I surely wouldn’t forget.

Niall: Clutching at our interlaced fingers, the rose scented room diffuser filling my nostrils, Niall’s soft hair tickling my inner thighs as his lips circled my clit. “You’re so wet, honey” he mused, as he slipped a finger inside my already pulsing walls, all the sensations having me in complete euphoria. I clutched the pearly white, flower petal covered sheets, the pace of Niall’s fingers and lips picking up their pace. I arched my back, my first orgasm as his wife suddenly taking over my body, my head spinning and legs trembling with pleasure. “I love you” I breathed as I tumbled down from my high, gazing at him in awe with a dazed smile etched to my features. “I love you too, baby, so damn much” he beamed, grabbing my flushed cheeks as his lips passionately wrapped around mine.

Based on THIS post - didn’t end up as fluffy as I thought

They’re the first thing he notices, after he takes his time his time appreciating Emma’s face now that he can see clearly through both eyes again. Her face, finally free of the darkness and smiling. He can still see the worry in her features, but there’s a smile there nonetheless.

But he notices. They’re hard to miss, the children’s toys strewn about the living room of their house. At least it’s the house he considers to be theirs, despite never having spent a night within its walls. It’s the house he dreamed would become their home. Where he would spend his life with Emma, and now he sees the signs of the child he has desperately wanted for so long.
