    Poetry and musical chorals might be the final bastion of imperial measure. I'd challenge any writer, even Bob Dylan, Woody Guthrie, or Ian Anderson the lyricization of "16 Tons" into "load 14514.9558 kilograms and and whadda ya get"...

    I just had to investigate origin; link opened to "Historic 1912 recording of rowing song of a boat's crew on the Yangtze River in Sichuan, China" The beginning had me envisioning Middle East.

    I would challenge any of the testosterone deficient singers of today in any genera of what laughingly tries to pass for music to try and sing any of Tennessee Earnie's songs Think of how John Henry or Big John would sound sung by Bieber

    That jes makes me headbone hurt.
    Lol "testosterone deficient" isn't the only problem, a crop of "estrogen laden" performers isn't relieving it.
    While I can't provide a direct quote, Noel Gallagher remarks the crop main fail is delivering material sufficient listeners can identify with in a positive way. Frank S's offer of Sinatra "My Way" isn't one of mine, but the message is undeniable.
    Somehow, our HMT family fits right in with that. Could there be a broader strata? I am not surprised.

    Happens all the time, new favorite picture. Not fickle, the examples just continue to improve and prove my soapbox chant.

    I haven't really picked a favorite yet but I have ear marked several that I want to print off in a 3x5 format that's 3 foot by 5 foot to frame and put on my walls in the shop office if it ever gets built.

    I agree about making a poster of it, but it would be a real push to get that size Frank. It's actually almost square at 8bits per channel RGB, but at 300ppi it's only ~5"x5". Might crop a bit of the sky but would take from the perspective, imho. Perhaps a giclee would take up some of the slack and get you up to 2x2' in Gray scale at 32bits/channel, maybeż Reminds me of Coney Island or The Pike in Long Beach for some reason..or ants roaming among the giants.

    I love most of these for various reasons and would be hard pressed to pick a top 5 let alone top 10, and only 76 saved from these posts that Jon has so graciously shared with us.

    Thanks for another great one Jon.
