3. Why CDs sound bad, from Bob Dylan, whose new CD is out next Tuesday.

4. Game theory and gambling in Paraguay: borrowing a page from Thomas Schelling.

5. Japanese markets in everything.

Dylan’s thing didn’t seem to be “why” CDs sound bad, so much as that they just do.

If you were a regular reader of the Lew Rockwell site you would have seen the Easter Island story earlier, and before even that would have seen this article contra Diamond on the Viking islanders.

I can understand why you’re not a regular reader though considering all the crap Lew allows to infest the page.

It seems like Dylan isn’t complaining about the quality of recordings, but the quality of sound engineers and record producers.
