The 150 gram double LP 45 rpm vinyl pressing of the 2013 masterpiece “…Like Clockwork” by Queens of the Stone Age is an excellent example of why vinyl is a superior medium. I dare anybody to listen to this on vinyl (with a good turntable, cartridge, amp, and speakers) and compare that to any other medium. Also, it’s just a super fantastic album. Nowhere in the description on Amazon or the album cover or the records does it say 45 rpm so you just gotta know that little detail. It’s an important little detail as properly mastered 45 rpm vinyl offers even greater audio reproduction as the stylus is able to read a greater detail of wiggles in the grooves.

Recently the vinyl resurrection has included the occasional remastering and reissue of classic 60s and 70s albums on 200 gram vinyl. Usually these are limited edition runs of a few hundred or a thousand numbered copies. If you miss out on the initial availability they can then jump from their initial price of $30-$50 to several hundred dollars.

I have a few of these 200 gram vinyl editions. Among my favorites of these are the albums “All The Young Dudes”, released in November 2014, and “Mott”, released in November 2016, both by Mott the Hoople. I got numbered copy 676 out of 1000 of “All The Young Dudes” and number 150 out of 500 of “Mott”. Both are pretty sweet.

In 2013 Analog Productions created a 200 gram vinyl re-release of Steppenwolf’s first studio album “Steppenwolf”. This album, originally released in January 1968, was an immediate hit for the band rising to #6 on the pop album charts and the song “Born To Be Wild” to #2.

The 2013 edition reproduces the original silver foil album cover with remastering by the remaster master Kevin Gray.

It is a real pleasure to be able to listen to this, one of the best albums of all time, on such high quality vinyl and remastered with such skill. It’s a really good album. Thanks Steppenwolf and thanks Analog Productions!

Notes for the Steppenwolf superfans:

“Born To Be Wild” was written by Mars Bonfire who was in The Sparrows before they were renamed Steppenwolf. On the original pressings of “Steppenwolf” to song “Born To Be Wild” was credited to Mars Bondfire and the 2013 re-release faithfully reproduces this original spelling/misspelling.

“The Pusher”, track 2 on side 2 of “Steppenwolf”, was written by Hoyt Axton and appeared along with “Born To Be Wild” in the film “Easy Rider”. Axton was born and raised in Oklahoma and wrote “Heartbreak Hotel” which became the first major hit for Elvis Presley. He also wrote “Joy To The World” and “Never Been To Spain” for Three Dog Night. Axton struggled with cocaine addiction and “The Pusher” is one of the best indictments in song of the black market drug culture.

Greg Lake died yesterday. He was a member of two of the greatest prog rock bands of all time, King Crimson and Emerson, Lake & Palmer. Lake was the vocalist, bassist, and producer of King Crimson’s debut album “In the Court of the Crimson King” released in October 1969.

By coincidence I just this week received the 2010 remastering of “In the Court of the Crimson King” on 200 gram vinyl. It’s arguably the greatest album of all time and this may be it’s best pressing to date although I actually prefer the 5.1 surround remix by Steven Wilson.

Thanks for all the fantastic music Greg Lake, your voice was a soothing balm through challenging times. #greglake #kingcrimson #inthecourtofthecrimsonking

Home Automation via MacOS Command Line

Read my post on how to setup commands on your Mac to control your home automation platform from the command line - http://ift.tt/2jHexBN

Home Automation via MacOS Command Line

Apple added Siri to MacOS but Siri on the Mac cannot issue HomeKit commands or commands to devices that are not HomeKit compatible. Siri can be used to send SMS messages to an IFTTT phone channel which can trigger an IFTTT applet that sends commands to your Harmony or other devices and activities. Here is what you have to do to setup Harmony activities, IFTTT applets, and MacOS commands to control your activities and devices from the command line on a Mac/Macbook.


Step 1 - Create Harmony Activities


This article uses the Logitech Harmony home automation platform to demonstrate automated control of devices and activities. I own the Harmony Elite:
    http://www.logitech.com/en-us/product/harmony-elite

Any platform that provides IFTTT support can be used in a similar manner.

In order for IFTTT to issue commands to the Harmony system you must first create Harmony Activities. Use the Harmony application on your iPad or iPhone to create activities. I have created activities to "Watch TV", "Play Blu-Ray", "Watch Apple TV", and so on. These activities combine the devices and commands to those devices necessary to start and end the activity. For instance, to start the "Watch TV" activity the TV is turned on and set to HDMI 1, the Receiver is turned on and set to TV/SAT, and the TiVo Roamio Pro is powered on. Similar sets of devices and actions are used to create the other activities.

Step 2 - Create An IFTTT Account and Phone Channel

Create an account with IFTTT at https://ifttt.com and you will be assigned an IFTTT phone number:
    https://ifttt.com/services/phone_call/settings
You will use this phone number as the recipient for SMS messages that contain triggers for IFTTT applets.

Step 3 - Connect IFTTT Services

For this demonstration we will need to connect the SMS and Harmony services to our IFTTT account. Login at IFTTT, click the Search link and enter "SMS" in the search text field. Configure and connect the IFTTT SMS service. Similarly, search for "Harmony" (or the service that controls your home automation platform),  configure and connect the Harmony IFTTT service.

Step 4 - Create IFTTT Applets

You can create IFTTT Applets that use the IFTTT services you have connected to your account. In this example we use the SMS and  Harmony services. Login at IFTTT, click your IFTTT user name and select "New Applet" from the dropdown menu or go to https://ifttt.com/create

Click the "+ this" link and search for the SMS service. Click the SMS service box. Click the "Send IFTTT an SMS tagged" box. Make sure it is the "tagged" box and not the "... any SMS" box. Enter the tag you want to use to trigger the activity. For example, I used the tag "WatchTV" to trigger my Watch TV activity. No need to put a "#" at the beginning of the string here, just the string to use as a tag. Click "Create trigger".

This should bring you back to the "If this then that" page with the "this" part filled out with SMS. Now click the "+ that" link and search for the Harmony service. Click the Harmony service box. With the Harmony service you need to now select either the "Start activity" or "End activity" box. This may vary with other home automation platforms. Click the "Start activity" box for this example.

If you have correctly connected your Harmony IFTTT service then you should now see a "Start activity" box with a dropdown menu that lists the Harmony activities you have created and enabled. Select the Harmony activity you want to start with this applet and click "Create action".

Edit the title of your new applet and click "Finish".

You now have an IFTTT account, an IFTTT phone channel, IFTTT services that connect to your phone and home automation platform, and IFTTT applets that are triggered by SMS tags sent to your IFTTT phone channel.

Step 5 - Send an SMS Message to Your IFTTT Phone Channel

You should now be able to activate an IFTTT applet by sending the appropriate SMS message to your IFTTT phone channel. From the phone number you used to configure your IFTTT phone channel (see https://ifttt.com/services/phone_call/settings) send an SMS with one of  the tags you used to create an IFTTT applet. For example, I used "WatchTV" as the tag to trigger my Watch TV activity. I can send the SMS message "#WatchTV" to my IFTTT phone channel and that activates my Watch TV IFTTT applet. Note that the SMS message must contain the "#" symbol at the beginning of the tag.

Try it with the Messages app on your Mac/Macbook after configuring an "IFTTT Phone Channel" contact to use. You can also try it with Siri on your Mac/Macbook by asking Siri to send an SMS message to IFTTT phone channel. Unfortunately, for me, Siri often misunderstands what I say and changes "Play Blu-Ray" to "Say Tuesday" or some nonsense. The SMS message tag must correspond exactly to the tag you entered when creating the IFTTT applet. It's even case sensitive so you may have to go back and modify the IFTTT applet to match what Siri sends (e.g. Siri will capitalize the 'A' and the 'TV' in AppleTV and does not insert a space. I played around with it but soon decided to use a command line script rather than the finicky Siri voice commands.

Step 6 - Create Scripts to Send SMS Messages

I found it easier to simply type in a simple command than try to get Siri to understand exactly what I wanted to send. I'm a programmer and I almost always have several terminal windows open so I chose to write some simple scripts to allow me to easily type a command to control my devices and activities.

Here is the "ifttt" Bash script I wrote to send SMS messages to my IFTTT phone channel. You should be able to modify this slightly, setting the IFT variable to your IFTTT phone number and changing the tag strings to match those you have used. Or you may choose to write your own shell script or AppleScript - all I'm really doing here is executing the following AppleScript with the osascript command in a shell script:

tell application "Messages"
  send "$MSG" to buddy "$IFT" of service "SMS"
end tell

Where the MSG variable contains the message I want to send and the IFT variable contains the IFTTT phone number.

My ifttt shell script:

The ifttt script can be invoked directly but to simplify further I wrote additional scripts which then run the ifttt script with the appropriate arguments. For example, to run the Watch TV activity I can execute the ifttt command directly as:
    # ifttt tv on
or
    # ifttt tv off
or with no arguments it turns the activity on
    # ifttt tv
I also wrote a shell script "tv" which does just that:

#!/bin/bash
ifttt tv $*


So now I can also start the Watch TV activity by typing:
    # tv on
or
    # tv
And end the Watch TV activity by typing:
    # tv off

The latest version of my ifttt script and associated convenience scripts are available in the IFTTT subdirectory of my Scripts github repository at https://github.com/doctorfree/Scripts

Enjoy!

The 150 gram double LP 45 rpm vinyl pressing of the 2013 masterpiece “…Like Clockwork” by Queens of the Stone Age is an excellent example of why vinyl is a superior medium. I dare anybody to listen to this on vinyl (with a good turntable, cartridge, amp, and speakers) and compare that to any other medium. Also, it’s just a super fantastic album. Nowhere in the description on Amazon or the album cover or the records does it say 45 rpm so you just gotta know that little detail. It’s an important little detail as properly mastered 45 rpm vinyl offers even greater audio reproduction as the stylus is able to read a greater detail of wiggles in the grooves.
