  1. I flipped a coin today as to which 'potentially grossly disappointing or outright thrilling' movie to see today: FORD V FERRARI or MIDWAY.

    MIDWAY won, and I wasn't disappointed (the cringe I knew was going to be there was... CGI and Harrelson as Nimitz). As historically accurate as any WWII movie will be.
     

    FvF will be seen next week. Bale looks a great Ken Miles... Shelby should have been played by Matthew McConaughey.

    What famous U.S. pre-WWII child actor was a Glider Pilot for the D-Day Airborne operations and fought as an Infantry Officer after landing...he also flew glider troops many more times in WWII...and ended his acting career with a continuous role in a macabe television comedy series as somebody's uncle...name that hero!

  3. Dear Mr. Klipsch,

     

    Late to the party, as I've been too busy listening to amazingly reproduced music through your premier design.

    I cannot thank you enough.

    Your birthday has made an awful lot of folks VERY happy!

    Since we moved a few years ago, my 1977 Cornwalls have been in storage. Made a sweet (for him) package deal with my son-in-law.  Cornwalls and a Marantz 2325. Looking good!

    These replace a pair of Heresy HIPs (and an Onkyo home theater receiver) he has been using for years.

    • Offset firebox, brick-lined smoker.
    • Oak w/some hickory.
    • Salt and pepper rub (sometimes with a pinch of cayenne).
    • Fat side up.
    • 185-220F.
    • 30 minutes per pound (approximately).
    • One can of beer per hour for heat control (used internally).

    If you are coming to Central Texas anytime, these are the places I highly recommend you visit. I'm big on tradition, not so big on neu-b-que.

    Those are all great. I would add that one of the Muller's has a place in Austin that is rated No. 2 on a lot of lists. I prefer Smitty's but if you his Lockhart you might as well go to em all.

    I would put those all at a 9 or a 10. There is ine in Belton that is as good as any of those.

    But Franklin is in his own league. I never thought any BBQ was going to be worth a 3 hour wait, boy was I wrong.

     

     

    In Belton, it's Miller's Smokehouse, which used to do taxidermy and bbq.

    I must have hit Franklin's on an off day. Very good and on par with the best, but ultimately I didn't find it worth the wait. I've never gone back.

  6. Sounds like history missed an opportunity to document a well designed loudspeaker system. I meant no disrespect to Mr. Frazier, I hope you know. Heck, I'd love to get rich off of a product I made and designed. I'm just regretful (for Mr. Frazier, myself, and the audio community) that his journey wasn't as well documented as Mr. Klipsch's.

    After Jack Frazier died, his wife sold the company pretty quickly. The buyers were Philistines, and had no interest in the company's heritage. "Out with the old!" The current owners of the name in Dallas probably have more respect for the company's heritage (but not much).
