What a Difference 5 Years Makes

Left: The view from our front bedroom window, shortly after moving in, on April 27, 2014. Right: The view from our front bedroom window, 1 day after moving in to our new house, on June 7, 2019.

We finished our move on Thursday, June 6 in to our new house, and we couldn’t be happier about it! The view at our old place has changed quite a bit since we first moved in (the lot across the street is fully developed now, and the building you can see has been demolished, for example), but you seriously can’t beat our new view!

Our new house was a can’t-miss from both of us mostly because of the excellent location, and since moving in, it’s been just as excellent as we expected! Who knows what the next 5 years will bring for our family!!

The Sounds of Sports (At Home)

I’ve always liked sports, and in the last few years when I’ve spent quite a bit of time as an audio engineer, I’ve been noticing more and more just how much goes in to making things on TV and in movies sound good.

However, nothing could have prepared me for just how much audio equipment and microphones are embedded in and active during sporting events. This video gives great insight in to just how much work is done live during sporting events to make them sound great. It’s been getting clearer and clearer to me that you often get much more out of watching a sport on TV than you can from attending one live, and this stuff is a big part of why.
