Just a warning.
For those few readers who still seem to be shocked or affronted that I occasionally take an interest in things non-photographic, I should probably mention again that on many Sundays I write a deliberately off-topic post. I call these little sorties the "Open Mike." Get it? My name is Mike, and open mike means anyone can step up to the microphone and say whatever they want to...oh, so clever.
Next Sunday, for my weekly "Open Mike," I'm going to be reviewing a terrific little high-fidelity music speaker. It's quite portable, and can serve as a stellar replacement for a soundbar for your flatscreen, as a desktop system for your computer, or as a bedroom, dorm-room, or cottage or cabin speaker. It's quite inexpensive, and its value for money is off the charts (thanks, China).
Also, a few comments about the ethics of reviewing. Probably also a few comments about buying speakers, because, well, I do go on.
So now you know. And if you're one of those who don't like my posts about anything other than photography, you can skip the post on Sunday. (Every time I write about anything else I get emails and comments saying some variant of "I thought this was supposed to be a photography site.") That's one of the reasons for the not-so-clever series name: to label those posts in order to make it easy for you to avoid them if you want to.
So that's that.
P.S. Also, I'm going to do my best to take Saturday off this week. I've been saying Saturday is my day off for a long time now, but I never actually seem to be able to not work on my day off. I typically spend Saturday doing what I do every other day, sometimes from the time I get up in the morning until eight or nine at night. I really do need to take a day off every week. Even if I have to force myself. I'm going to work on that.
