Ok folks, for those of you who are members and saw the little pipe organ webinar, I happened to mention a "project that was none of my doing," and for those of you who aren't members, well, I said there was a project in the works that was (again), none of my doing. Our friend, former Assistant Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Catherine Austin Fitts, and financial-political analyst and strategist, during one of her recent visits, heard me wishing that I had access to a nice big pipe organ to play but that having been out of practice for so many years, I've lost all contact with people who could grant me access to one. Then I added it was unlikely anyway since I am usually awake through the night working. During our music discussions (which we often have after we get done talking about politics and economics and geopolitics and trying to make sense of this crazy world) I mentioned "virtual pipe organs" and "virtual harpsichords", and she asked "What's that?"
Well, I explained that basically they are digital masters of famous pipe organs (or harpsichords) that one buys and downloads into a computer, which them can be played from special organ keyboards and pedal boards right in your home. She said, "well that's what you really need, then. How much are they?" and I laughed and said "Way beyond my budget!"

So here's the details for that lunch from her website, The Solari Report:
