Bike Mic Stand

I was intending on making a mic stand to attach to my bike so I wouldn't need to carry around my full size one when doing outdoor recording.  I was originally thinking of some complicated c-clamp mechanism to attach to the seatpost, but then I remembered the light mount I made has a pretty generic rectangular attachment which I could take advantage of.
The new design utilizes a top half of a half mic stand I had lying around, and I made an extension rod from some 3/4" diameter aluminum.  Pretty simple design compared to what I had planned originally.

Fire up the big kettle! | Dunkelweissen 10 Gallon Brew Day and Recipe

Following the announcement of acquiring new brewing hardware, the only logical thing to do from there was to make some beer with it. Idle hands are the devil's plaything, so let's get to work.

Pumpkin Cider 2018

Before I get my next batch of beer going, I decided to get started on a classic holiday tradition; Pumpkin Cider.
This time for the juice I went out and grabbed the stuff Costco sells. Only ingredient listed is Apple Juice (not from concentrate), so I know this is some good stuff.

How's that for a north-facing garden?


Through a stretch of summer degree weather through the beginning of November, the NFT has been growing well. The mixture of Basil, Kale, Swiss Chard, and Bok Choy is not only doing well, but it's thriving, even with the minimal light. I can only imagine how well this setup would do if it is able to get 10+ hours of sun per day.
