What do you get when you cross stand-up comedy and an architecture cruise? Heck if we know, but Shoreline Sightseeing and Zanies are going to find out this weekend when they debut the Friday Evening Comedy Cruises. Standup comics and Zanies regulars Pat McGann and Bill Bunker will each do 45-minute sets aboard a Shoreline boat, departing from Navy Pier and cruising the Chicago river for a 90-minute excursion.

If a little open-air comedy sounds nice, or if you've ever thought those overly earnest architecture cruises are just begging for a little parody, that's more or less the idea. Although, we should point out, this idea is brand-new and untested.

"They're going to be playing off their environment, it's going to be pretty improvisational," says Zanies executive vice president Bert Haas. McGann and Bunker will be riffing on both the skyline and the crowd. "You've never seen quicker people on their feet."

Shoreline, which has hosted jazz cruises, first approached Zanies about water-born stand-up comedy. A little actual architectural information may even get thrown in, Haas says, and both comics will do more or less clean sets, so folks on the riverwalk are safe too. There will be another Comedy Cruise Sept. 18 headlined by Dobie Maxwell, and if the formula works, maybe more this summer or the next.

Stop this boat if you've heard this ...

8 p.m. Friday; boarding begins 15 minutes before departure from the Shoreline dock at Navy Pier; tickets are $39 per person (21+) and include drink ticket; 312-222-9328 or

a location of congregation for independent, innovative minds, an area that compensated curiosity with serendipitous exploration, attracting any ages and also tastes in songs.".

Yet after relaunching in 2007 with brand-new administration, Rough Trade is rising once again. The circulation network submitted for insolvency in 1991, and also the international divisions closed.

"Digital songs is certainly extremely hassle-free, it is now a standard and therefore routine means of eating songs on daily basis. This has actually taken into sharp relief the value stemmed from possessing a taped songs artefact, of which vinyl fabric is the most attractive. Everyone is hesitating to see exactly how the market will create-- 2015 could possibly be the end of the vinyl run. But the core product is increasingly intimidated by ability constraints. Vinyl manufacturing relies upon equipment that has actually not been modernized considering that the golden era and essential skills are in short supply.

Sales are up however spread across a lot more, smaller orders states Holzel, which is encouraged by the spreading of vinyl fabric businesses across brand-new genres. The Berlin Philharmonic orchestra is a brand-new client. When his company was influenced by the 2011 tsunami, so was the global market. "Being more compared to a point of acquisition ... International sales have likewise been strong, with Holzel citing useful partnerships with UK labels.

"(This) was the initial duty of a document shop," claims Godfrey. Suppliers also receive demands for bizarre variations such as vinyl fabric pushed from coffee, blood and also cremated continues to bes.

Growth has been assisted by the plummeting expense of music, Godfroy believes.

Some could take this as baffling or pretentious behavior, however the future of vinyl may relax on its capability to locate offering points beyond its fundamental function as a music style.

Having actually time out of mind shed the battle for expense as well as comfort to competing formats, plastic is nevertheless appreciating its most long term revival since the encounter of the CD.

The realm fell apart dramatically as brand-new styles arised. It is regular vs habit.

"We have actually been bolder compared to many when it comes to redefining what a document store could be," states Godfrey.

"Accessing songs has become practically complimentary. Analogue music calls for much more fancy ritualized interest. we aim to make really specific releases.".

"Vinyl is not likely to recapture the mainstream market however it can remain as a crucial medium," states Bartmanski.

Sales have actually been increasing greatly yearly considering that 2007, with a peak rise of 54 percent in 2014 - driven by strong numbers in the heartlands of the Usa, UK, and also Germany-- although records still make up merely a portion of total music sales.

Just two firms globally produce lacquer needed in mastering, among which is a one-man operation in Japan. For currently, old machines suggest even more profits.".

One method to make up for problems in providing volume has actually been to differ the product, and novelty launches get on the increase-- ranging from bespoke artwork to tinted and patterned plastic. Younger, 'format savvy' generations pay attention to songs on many layouts and devices, yet significantly decide to purchase vinyl fabric for their most liked recordings, offered the multi-sensory worth vinyl fabric uniquely supplies.".

Independent British retailer Rough Trade has actually symbolized the medium's roller coaster fortunes. The record label is authorizing major acts, as well as new stores have actually opened in the UK and New york city, the latter a 15,000 square foot storage facility which ended up being the city's biggest document electrical outlet, at a time of numerous bricks-and-mortar establishments shuttering.

"The last five years have seen a particular rebirth many thanks to cheap access to music as if it were an utility, as well as younger generations discovering the qualities of vinyl for the initial time.

"The entire business is based upon 50-year-old machines and also technology," states Raik H lzel, head of web and also social networks at Deal with With Care, a Berlin supplier of physical media that specializes in vinyl. "It is necessary to the genuine lovers to have something special ... "The remedy is to buy creating new equipments but there is still not a lot money in business to motivate the global gamers to invest. you don't intend to download your favourite food, you go to a good restaurant to experience that food. Particular encounters are neither downloadable nor feasible to save money on a hard disk.".

Offered the relative cost of vinyl fabric and the time needed to maintain a collection, its future could possibly be as a deluxe particular niche, believes Dominik Bartmanski, a sociologist at the Technical University of Berlin, and also writer of "Plastic: The Analogue Record in the Digital Age.".

This audacious action counts on supplying a "third place" experience between home as well as job, claims co-owner Stephen Godfroy, which other formats might not offer.

"These information are necessary currently, we see a lot more minimal versions," states Holzel. The firm rose to notability in the 1980s golden age with a document label that executed global celebrities such as the Smiths as well as a popular establishment in West London, where A-list artists consisting of Chatting Heads carried out, which brought about an international circulation network as well as brand-new shops from Paris to Tokyo.

Rough Profession has sought to expand its appeal via varied however very carefully decided on office partnerships, with its establishments organizing areas for publication publishers, bicycles as well as skin care.

(CNN) -.

A quarter of young adults purchase records they never ever hear, a study of British music fans uncovered in 2014.

There are around a dozen pressing plants in the United States and also a handful in Europe that must serve the whole industry, and as need increases the turnaround times can stretch into months.

"Plastic has a possibility for being a far better 'ceremonial' tool.

Our 2 actor hosts also performed the scene via Samuel Becket's Waiting regarding Godot there.

Our 2 guides, Derek Reid along with fellow actor Finbarr Doyle, entertained us as we produced our approach via pub in order to pub, interpreting readings through Oscar Wilde, James Joyce, Samuel Beckett and other famous Irish writers. they offered amusing anecdotes about the writers' lives--like some time Oscar Wilde, although on the visit to the U.S., drank a range of hard-living coal miners through Leadville, Colorado beneath the particular table--in the mine.

We in addition visited The Actual Bailey in Duke Street, certainly one of James Joyce's watering holes which includes experienced company since the actual mid 19th century, a lengthy occasion before Joyce's day.

The great thing in regards to the Dublin Literary Pub Crawl is that your tour alternates the pubs, therefore you'll observe distinct issues if you want to accomplish the particular tour again.

While there possess been a quantity of 4000 pubs during Guinness' day, pubs nevertheless maintain a significant role in Irish society, says well-known neighborhood historian and author Pat Liddy, creator of Strolling Tours of Dublin. Your Ex new  Kids Manual for you to Boston is available on the web and through significant booksellers, along using the Kids Instructions for you to NYC, Washington, DC, Orlando,  LA as well as Chicago. Kelly Brown, visiting via Australia, stated it had been perfect for solo travelers which may go through intimidated for you to go any pub through themselves.

"In Dublin you're by zero means a lot more than twenty paces from a pint," joked fellow tourist Derek Reid.

We grabbed any pint regarding Guinness at the historic Duke, the pub since 1822 and also where writers Brendan Behan, Patrick Kavanagh along with Myles Na gCopoleen frequented. and your Palace Bar is when newspapermen would spend time - the joke has been it was exactly where journalists went alongside to cook up their stories.

The tour took us to always be able to 4 pubs where the literary along with political crowd frequented by means of the actual centuries.

Members upon our tour gave it high mark regarding its mix involving background entertainment--as well as the excellent drinks. Sláinte. Coming  later this year: San Diego, Bay Area as well as Denver.

It turns out that 1700s Irish author Oliver Goldsmith, facing the deadline handy in an edit for any Mother Goose anthology, was short on nursery rhymes and made a choice to pen any couple himself--including Jack and Jill and Hickory Dickory Dock.

What does this famous Mother Goose children's tale have got to do using Dublin pubs?    

And we knocked by an Irish whiskey or perhaps 2 and also ended our tour at Davy Byrne's, which may end up being one in the most famous regarding all.  James Joyce set any scene regarding his masterpiece Ulysses here: your character Leopold Bloom famously stops here for any cheese sandwich as well as glass of wine although he's wandering through Dublin.  While Ulysses ended up being published within 1922, the pilgrimage began in order to this pub also it hasn't stopped since. 

. the stuff you understand hitting Dublin's pubs about the Dublin Literary Pub Crawl.

Wherever you've your own first-or final pint with the evening, raise any glass in order to all the writers, politicians, actors as well as dreamers have been here just before you. (pronounced Slawn-cha wah...That's Gaelic regarding Cheers.)

There are usually scores of some other famous drinking houses within Dublin.  a must notice will be the Guinness Storehouse -where Arthur Guinness began brewing beer within 1759.  The Existing Stand served like a safe home pertaining to revolutionaries during the Irish War involving Independence (1919-21), a guerrilla war fought in between the Irish Republican Army and the British safety forces. He says locals stop within to obtain a pint after function or get a quick bite just before setting off for your evening out making use of their mates.  every pub we ventured in to was packed on a Thursday night.

If you want to discover a number of the city's 800 pubs in your own, think about the actual Dublin Pass, which in turn gives you discounted entry to a lot much more than 30 leading attractions, as well as enables you in order to definitely bypass the particular lines.

"You meet individuals would you otherwise," the lady explained.

As noted at the beginning, the camera may record "2.7K" video (2704x1520) with 24 or even 30 frames for each second; additionally, it may shoot 1920x1080 video at 24, 25, 30, or 48 fps along with 1280x720 from 24, 25, 30, 48, 50, or perhaps 60 fps. Delivery will begin soon.

Camera, gimbal, along with shock absorbing mount from oblique high right.

In flight, the Phantom 3's handling characteristics feel very similar to Phantom 2--although it offers been about a year since I final logged any period having a Phantom 2, therefore there could be variances I'm not remembering. Zero wild overconfident flights into hungry foliage. to control the actual drone, a person install DJI's new DJI GO app (currently iOS only) along with connect your current telephone as well as iPad for the remote's Wi-Fi network. Your floaty, ethereal quality involving the stabilized images was wonderful, nevertheless the actual images by themselves weren't anything amazing.

The new drone appears to lock on to GPS satellites considerably faster when compared with before, getting only a few seconds to demonstrate an suitable quantity of satellites, whereas your Phantom 2 Vision+ would usually take a total minute to demonstrate it was safe for you to fly. I actually shot this with out a new photographer--just set finished . to always be able to hover, gingerly put on the remote, and grabbed your DSLR. Flying in 500 meters might be not just a excellent idea--hell, flying over even one hundred meters is probably not truly a great idea, thinking about the prospective of interfering with mild aircraft.

A brief video comparison of the Phantom 3 Standard's video output as well as last year's Phantom 2 Vision+.

Hardware and remote

The Phantom 3 standard itself initially glance appears identical to the Phantom 2 Vision As well as we flew final year, though the actual red stripes in its forward rotor arms are shiny red instead of matte (the Pro along with Advanced Phantom 3s sport gold and also silver stripes, respectively). Regarding certain interest is the capacity to accomplish reside YouTube streaming from the actual inside your DJI app (something we couldn't test but since we had been limited by utilizing a Wi-Fi-only iPad--the prerelease version of the DJI GO app wouldn't run on my iPhone 5S).

The Phantom 3 Regular features new badging along with new shiny red decals, but the drone body is normally visually unchanged. previously altering these options necessary utilizing DJI's terrible desktop app along with interfacing with the drone directly via USB.

The app also contains any "simulator" game to familiarize your self using the drone's controls. This specific time around, as I unboxed the particular irreplaceable prototype Phantom 3 Standard, I resolved that will I'd become a lot more careful. As Quickly As it has a GPS lock, your drone holds its place fairly solidly even when it's windy.

Battery and also energy status.

The Phantom three Regular now actually generates excellent video and also fantastic stills. I invested the vast majority of my Phantom 2 time with just about all the drone set to always be able to its optional "NAZA mode," which usually unlocked a variety of the drone's advanced functionality; I didn't create virtually any direct alterations to the Phantom 3's settings.

Detail around the updated "2.7K" camera and also gimbal assembly in the left. Your drone can be actually a lot simpler to keep track of in night within the air due in order to the flashing LEDs, however the images it beams back again tend to be nonetheless fuzzy.

. The Particular real difference, though, may be the gimballed camera slung underneath the particular Phantom three on its shock-resistant mount. Your video is stored as MPEG4 AVC/h.264 files around the drone's SD card slot (which signifies that if you lose your current drone, anyone shed your recorded video coming from that flight!). Your 1080p video produced through the P2V+ has been passable, but grainy along with marred by simply significant fisheye distortion. This is going for you to do single shot or burst along with auto exposure bracketing, and--nicest regarding all--it may retailer its images in its included SD card as each JPG along with Adobe DNG RAW files.

Again, post-processing your DNG inside Lightroom tends in order to make for a perfectly serviceable image.


Lee Hutchinson

The reduced light performance is actually improved, mostly as becoming a operate regarding creating a significantly superior lens as well as sensor, but it's still not necessarily wonderful. Throughout fact, many in the adjustments that possess been formerly simply editable inside DJI's badly translated hacky desktop application happen to end up being able to be relocated to the iOS app, including the ability to enable the harder advanced IOC course lock mode (which permits you to do tricks just like relocating your drone along a straight monitor although pivoting--useful for keeping a subject within view with all the camera). Second, it shoots "2.7K" video (2704x1520) at 30fps, 1080p video with as much as 48fps, along with 720p video from up to 60fps. Your app displays the particular drone's position, altitude, remaining battery, the actual quantity of GPS satellites it can see, plus an estimate regarding if the drone has sufficient battery power remaining to always be able to fly back home (you can easily furthermore trigger the actual "return home" mode from inside the app).

Lee Hutchinson

There's a great deal of functionality in the new app that will we've not but stood a chance to dig into. I had been in a new position to do this for several minutes without getting shot at, consequently that's fairly good.

Top oblique view of your Phantom three Standard.

DJI offers mentioned they might wish to ship us an updated model in the Phantom three standard to do a complete review about when your strategy is available, thus we'll support the exhaustive analysis until we've got shipping hardware as well as computer software in our hands. This could be unequivocally a good thing--we drew a new great offer of criticism final time about pertaining to taking the actual Phantom 2 approximately concerning 1,000 feet (about 305 meters), which usually upon reflection had been probably a pretty stupid thing to do.

The DJI GO app traces out your flight path, although simply because I was using an iPad without cellular Internet connectivity, I couldn't obtain the map and also the drone each up in the same moment (the iPad connects to the drone's remote by method of Wi-Fi).

App snap

My initial experience with DJI's Phantom quadcopter drones has been unboxing a Phantom two Vision+ and then flying it straight into a tree.

Lee Hutchinson

The Phantom 3 Normal within flight. Noticeable at the particular top is the SD card slot.

Out in the box, the drone comes configured within "Beginner Mode," that prevents the drone via using off until it includes a sound GPS lock along with boundaries its flight range into a hemispherical area round the operator having a radius regarding 30 meters. Final year, your mobile apps DJI had with regard to use with the Phantom 2 Vision+ felt like that they had been hastily assembled along with lacked any great deal of functionality; this year, the actual iOS app will be both much less difficult to navigate as well as much, much smarter. Very first off, there is now the third Phantom 3 model: the Standard. Unlike the Phantom three Advanced along with Pro, the particular Standard's remote resembles the actual Phantom 2's, with its single antenna and also Wi-Fi link to your phone.

Still, your DJI GO app may be configured to end up being able to allow the max flight ceiling of 500m (about 1,640ft). at the actual time, the actual differentiation has been that the Pro version would shoot 4K video and additionally the Advanced would shoot 1080p, yet DJI provides made several changes to its line-up. Your drone even now follows the identical limited airspace model as before, though: it won't fly more than a few hundred feet inside regarding five miles regarding managed airspace, as well as inside about a mile-and-a-half associated with an airport, the drone will refuse to consider off. A Pair Of new models had been announced: the $1,259 Phantom 3 Skilled as well as the $999 Phantom three Advanced. It's even now noisy, yet it isn't in any way bad.

Updated: DJI provides informed Ars early this morning which the cost will probably be $799 along with that the Regular may be ordered today through DJI's store. As Quickly As connected, you'll be able to watch a reside feed from your drone's camera along with trigger video recordings as well as stills. Unlike using the Phantom 2 within NAZA mode, the Phantom 3 standard enforces any difficult altitude limit, which usually automatically is placed for you to 120 meters (about 400 ft). It's clearly got a new beefier lens assembly compared to the Phantom 2.

In your app's advanced settings, you are usually able to flip in IOC mode as well as other advanced settings. Your camera, though, can be visibly a lot bigger.

Looking in the reside camera relay via the DJI GO app, staring down my driveway.

The simulator furthermore calls out most with the app's data fields.

The maximum flight altitude is actually configurable from the inside the actual app as well. the remote adds any pan slider towards the upper left corner to ensure that you are usually able to control your drone's camera without taking both hands off of the control sticks, as well as the left stick additionally locks in to place when pulled all the approach down, permitting one to keep your drone descending with out to maintain backward deflection around the left stick.

The app also allows you turn on YouTube Are Living Streaming--which, again, I couldn't try out simply because I had zero cellular connection.

The app contains a plethora of options, such as alternate control stick layouts.

Back within April, we sent Ars Androidmeister Ron Amadeo for the launch event with regard to DJI's new Phantom 3 range of quadcopter drones. Nonetheless, even in light winds with some reasonable gusting, the particular Phantom 3 Normal ended up being rock-steady, holding itself inside any 2-ish meter bounding box just about no issue what was happening.

Compared towards the Phantom 2 Vision+, image top quality has been massively improved. the most challenging component for all involving us had been keeping our iPad well-balanced around the bottom side of the remote control, since the actual grabby mounting "claw" will be sized regarding phones and not tablets; truly seeing streamed video on the iPad's screen entirely sunlight had been also very problematic (though that isn't the actual drone's fault, regarding course).

Lee Hutchinson

The accessible video resolution and also frame price options.

Lee Hutchinson

Other than others bits, the remote looks the particular same. with Beginner mode disabled, your drone will fly as a long distance away as its remote signal allows it to go--with the actual exception of straight up. Assuming, involving course, you want for you to fly along with GPS. This particular puts its video abilities far over the particular Advanced model--we assume the complete collection will probably be obtaining any spec bump for you to go together with the Standard's release.

The Phantom 3 standard and its remote. Anyone can easily nevertheless disable GPS and also force finished . to always be able to fly zero make the difference in areas you are, just similar to with virtually any remote-controlled aircraft.

Some post-processing within Lightroom cleans it right up. While compared to become able to that launch date as well as pricing: DJI hasn't announced either yet, yet any DJI representative confirmed to become able to Ars in which it would be less than your price of the Phantom three Advanced.

For video, there are several choices of resolution along with frame rate. once airborne, we had simply no problems flying it as in order to the we judged as "hella far away" distances--in a clear area without obstructions, we had been in a position to maintain manage with easily over a new thousand feet away (about 300 meters).

Looking at the stay camera relay by means of the DJI GO app, staring down my driveway.

Hovering more than my neighborhood testing out the camera. Along With thus far, dear readers, I possess managed to not really wreck the particular thing--which will be good, simply because the complete "sorry I destroyed your own drone" e-mail conversation is a I'd want to do not necessarily have again.

Response in order to manage inputs was extremely snappy and authoritative, although it seemed such as the drone's yaw response whilst within forward motion was obviously a little laggy--it's achievable this can easily be as the flight software programs are a bit a lot more conservative having its maneuvering compared to Phantom 2 was at NAZA mode. I truly shot this without a photographer--just set finished . to hover, gingerly put on the remote, and also grabbed your DSLR. once it has a GPS lock, the actual drone holds its situation rather solidly even when it's windy.

Lee Hutchinson

Unlike the actual Pro and also Advanced models, the Phantom three standard utilizes a hand-held remote that greatly resembles the prior Phantom 2 Vision+, even although it sheds the cumbersome external Wi-Fi module. Upon the nonetheless aspect associated with things, DJI's spec sheet for the camera says it operates using a 35mm equivalent involving 20mm in f/2.8, having a max image size of 12MP in 4000x3000.

The huge update--pictures along with video
