Ep. 480: Where new information has come to light, man Video
Audiophiliac Steve Guttenberg helps us out with this special Yuletide episode of The 404 where we discuss the cocktail of weirdness that is "The Big Lebowski."
On today's episode of The 404 Podcast, hosts Jeff Bakalar, Wilson G. Tang, and Justin Yu discuss initial reviews of Chris Nolan's "Inception", attempt to predict Steve Jobs' pending announcement about the Apple iPhone 4, and talk 3D TVs with Audiophiliac Steve Guttenberg.
The Audiophiliac Steve Guttenberg makes an unusual midweek appearance on today's 404 episode and as usual, the discussion topics cover Steve's audiocentric stream of consciousness with a touch of disillusionment, like a Web site that takes the creativity out of naming your band, a mask that enhances audio, the unnatural origins of 3D, and the degrading quality of CD-Rs over time.
Our guest today is Steve Sphere Guttenberg, the man behind CNET's Audiophiliac blog. We'll talk to him about the immortal LP, the return of music videos sans VJs, Steve's interview with Young Guru, and more.
The end of the year wouldn't be complete without a penultimate appearance from CNET Audiophiliac Steve Guttenberg. In this episode, we'll check in with the new Rough Trade record store in Brooklyn, sample a variety of hi-fi gear from Sony, Koss, and U-Turn, preview a movie about the best-selling band you've never heard of, and explore the future of digital music.
Sphere's Law of Recurring Subject Matter argues that, given enough time, all conversations with Steve Guttenberg will inevitably become audiocentric. As usual, The Audiophiliac brings a ransom list of talking points today, including Spotify robbing musicians, Benford's law, Say Yes to the Dress, and a Monoprice controversy.
CNET Audiophiliac Steve Guttenberg joins us today to discuss the Back to the Future video game trailer, Steve's celebrity encounters, 3D surround sound, and more headphone advice for Wilson!
If you're even remotely interested in the Beatles, today's episode of The 404 is a must listen. CNET Audiophiliac Steve Guttenberg helps us out today for all things Beatles. To set it all up, Steve gives the three of us a lesson in how the band essentially shaped a decade of music and culture and how they became innovators in the way that bands record music. For example, did you know that it only took the band 4 hours to record and mix the song "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band?" Later on in the show, Steve tells us about how the Beatles used a vacuum tube-based machine to record their earlier albums and later switched to solid-state, with adverse affects to the low-end sounds. Lots more Beatles trivia on the show!
