Nice dj-ing! Thanks for making grading papers a lot more fun with a lot less wires!
  Mon. 5/18/09 8:15pm trent:

thanks, look at you taking care of the future!! how does it sound everyone? solar?
  Mon. 5/18/09 8:18pm panda321:

yeah! Trying to explain to them why broken windows policing is discriminatory and violent! The show actually sounds completely and totally solar.
  Mon. 5/18/09 8:24pm the sun:

i was wondering why i was feeling a bit drained...
  Mon. 5/18/09 8:24pm the sun:

yes having trouble hearing you
  Mon. 5/18/09 8:25pm daniel:

put the music down a smidge, its rather overpowering (still)
  Mon. 5/18/09 8:25pm the sun:

just a bit louder
  Mon. 5/18/09 8:26pm rob w:

Trent - yes, bring the bed music way down. Is there any chance that some of the music you're meaning to have in cue is going out over the air? - Rob
  Mon. 5/18/09 8:27pm trent:

thanks everyone. this is a group effort.
  Mon. 5/18/09 8:37pm Todd 76%:

I'm still hearing two separate audio sources (see rob w's comment above)...
  Mon. 5/18/09 8:39pm Harry:

Hear hear. Same here.
  Mon. 5/18/09 8:40pm trent:

thanks guys - should be better now.
  Mon. 5/18/09 8:43pm Steve in Hudson Valley:

Hey, it's sounding good, the separate audio source is gone. Um, isn't it getting dark? Did you charge up a battery with the solar panels?
  Mon. 5/18/09 8:47pm Harry:

Yes, much better now.
  Mon. 5/18/09 8:48pm Brian Oregon:

Cool set up Trent!
  Mon. 5/18/09 8:50pm monica:

nothin' like a hot harp re-mix, trent! lovin' it.
  Mon. 5/18/09 8:55pm trent:

thanx guys! another mic break coming up soon - make sure to keep me posted on levels....
  Mon. 5/18/09 8:56pm Steve in Hudson Valley:

Levels sound a little high on this one..."The Good Life."
  Mon. 5/18/09 9:00pm daniel:

take a picture of the equipment from your point of view
i want to see how its hooked up
  Mon. 5/18/09 9:02pm dave:

the DJ vocals sound a little bit overdriven, but otherwise the audio sounds great.

what are you using for wireless uplink? an HSDPA modem or something?
  Mon. 5/18/09 9:14pm ~L:

Very impressive! Solar sounds fine to me. The Newsom remix especially.
  Mon. 5/18/09 9:18pm dave:

short shameful confession: the beginning of this pet shop boys song just immediately makes my brain start singing coldplay's "when i ruled the world".

then it turns out to be the pet shop boys, and for some reason that's a huge relief.
  Mon. 5/18/09 9:23pm trent:

thanks L. i agree. dave - there are worse things to sing in your head. but don't tell anyone i said that.
  Mon. 5/18/09 9:25pm dave:

yr secret's safe with me.
  Mon. 5/18/09 9:26pm murphy:

where is the set up?

Sound is good the mike has trouble.
  Mon. 5/18/09 9:36pm leital:

  Mon. 5/18/09 9:46pm trent:

LMD what's up!!! next time next time. more history for later. it's not too cold except my g'damn fingertips.
  Mon. 5/18/09 9:49pm Swami:

  Mon. 5/18/09 9:52pm maria:

  Mon. 5/18/09 9:56pm maria:

  Mon. 5/18/09 9:59pm maria LLL:

we can hear you but it is phuzzzie
  Mon. 5/18/09 10:00pm Todd 76%:

Great Show, Trent! You & Solar PV rule, even if slightly distorted tonight...
  Mon. 5/18/09 10:00pm dave:

man, if there were ever a more objecive proof of, and awesome tribute to, serge gainsbourg's genius than april march's version of chick habit, i dunno what it is.
  Mon. 5/18/09 10:00pm leital:

hey, your mic is distorting. music sounds fine, tho.
  Mon. 5/18/09 10:00pm Todd 76%:

Great Show, Trent! You & Solar PV rule, even if slightly distorted tonight...

  Tue. 5/19/09 12:10pm Ben VC:
