If you lose your keys and then you find them, they were lost to you, but they were always available.

"Drawing from over 100 hours of never-before-seen footage that has been tucked away in the National Geographic archives for over 50 years", so the footage was lost in the archives and then found again. Misplaced, lost, whatever, it's semantics, what matters is it's footage that no one has ever seen before.

Nope. Nope. I'm not wrong in any way on this. You seriously have no idea what you're talking about here. I don't give a shit if you believe me, this is for anyone reading the thread, so they can see there's pushback to your fundamental misunderstanding of what you're talking about here. You have no idea what you're talking about.

You are incorrect, again. That's NOT why people switched to CDs - length of storage was a much bigger driver. You just don't know what you're talking about here. LPs in no way have an inferior sound, the technology of CDs requires audio data to be removed for 44.1 audio. Please understand that as an audio professional, this is just wildly wrong info you keep providing.

Okay. Let me reiterate that I've dealt with this for a living and know so much more about this than someone who wrote a story for Vox. I've worked with top engineers around the country. I've watched frequency responses on scopes. Vinyl is objectively better than cds, regardless as to what one story on the internet says for confirmation bias.

The song is called "A Horse With No Name" so I'd bet it's safe to assume the horse was indeed nameless. And Dewey Bunnell, the guy who wrote the song, was quoted as saying about his horseback trip into the desert to shoot an album cover photo, "We had fun, but I don’t recall the name of the horse I rode while I was out there". All signs point to a horse that was just "horse".
