...okay not the whole microphone, but the cord:
My broken mic cord - yeah its not supposed to veer right like that.
To backtrack: this past weekend my parents came to town and we spent the whole weekend eating, drinking good wine, reading (yup, we had a Sunday book club of sorts...) and smoking a practice Thanksgiving turkey, which came out great! I therefore knew I was going to post a bit late this week and had planned to add another track to my album (here) Monday or Tuesday....
However, I went to pull the mic out tonight and found the above monstrosity. Usually I wrap the mic cord gently around the base of my mic, but I guess I got a bit overzealous this last go-round and right-angle-ified the business end : ) I'll have to order a replacement before I can move forward - the mac is great overall but the built-in microphone makes my banjo sound like its underwater (and not in the cool Kyle Creed way).
Therefore, the fates have conspired to give me a night off - see you next week!
