Technology ~ Audio/Sound–The Sound Shark, 04/15

Reasons I have honed in on the Sound Shark.

My plan is that the Sound Shark will sit atop a 2nd SOLOSHOT on the Sound Truck that also tracks the tag and captures sound. I’ll feed that sound wirelessly [mixed with other audio] to the SS3 recording the video. It will sit on top of the orange shrouded tripod you see in these pictures.

Celebration ~ St. Patrick’s Day, 2017 [The Reduction Sauce], 03/17

This worked for me. It took longer than 35 minutes, though…

From the publisher [The Kitchen Whisper] of the Corned Beef & Cabbage Recipe I used for my St. Patrick’s Day Meal.

Now typically most people eat their corned beef either with a mustard or a horseradish. I decided to make a reduction sauce out it the juices. I mean HELLO.. that’s some good stuff left in the pan and I bet 95% of you would just pitch. WHY???

Seriously, MAKE THE SAUCE! You will never want corned beef again without it!

  1. Remove the meat from the crock pot and set aside. Place a tent foil on top.
  2. Using a slotted spoon, scoop out the veggies and place in a bowl.
  3. Place a sieve over top a medium pot and strain the juices into the pot.
  4. Place the pot over high heat.
  5. Bring to a boil, add in the remaining 1Tbl – 1/4 cup of the remaining brown sugar, water, horseradish, salt, pepper, grainy mustard, Worcestershire, honey, and mix.
  6. Put the heat to a simmer to reduce the sauce by half and it starts to thicken.

The meal was very tasty and is even better today–Saturday.

Technology ~ Photography–SOLOSHOT3 | January Update, 02/01

The March 2017 ship date holds and that is good.

Shipping Update: We have made a significant amount of progress moving the SOLOSHOT3 Base, Tag and OpticX Cameras to mass production. Bundles are expected to begin shipping from our manufacturing partner to our US distribution center in March. The key limiting factor to shipping at this point remains certification. We look forward to providing more shipping details in next month’s update.
