Today is a pretty intense grading day for me, so instead of my usual Friday Varia and Quick Hits, I thought I’d provide my grading playlist:
For me, grading is all about maximizing my flow:
Bob Marley, Exodus.
Tom Petty, Full Moon Fever.
Frightened Rabbit, The Midnight Organ Fight.
Iggy Pop, Lust for Life.
Iggy Pop, The Idiot.
Grace Jones, Nightclubbing.
Fleetwood Mac, Mr. Wonderful.
The tunes are coming from a late-1970s-ish Marantz 2235B driving a pair of Energy C-2 book shelf speakers. The source is my reliable MacBook Pro running unmodified iTunes through a Schiit Modi DAC. Cables are all Audioquest.
