I guess you could say I’ve had a reasonably productive weekend for once. I didn’t get out hiking, but I got a decent amount done around the house. Saturday I got up and decided to finally tackled the 2nd half of my kitchen cupboard project. I have a lot of cupboards, and I’d done some […]Read More Another DIY Repair Project & other thoughts
Here’s another new one. This one I just finished writing a day or two ago. I’m sure those of you who might be audiophiles have possibly noticed that in spite of all of my talk about audio interfaces and DAW software, etc, I’m still recording these kind of off-the-cuff on my cell phone. It’s all […]Read More New Tune: Unsaid
This is not the song I promised you in one of my recent posts. I still haven’t recorded that one properly. This is something totally different. I know I’ve been kind of in radio silent mode recently. Our receptionist at work has been out due to surgery, and I’ve been covering for her (in addition […]Read More New Tune: The Zombie Song
Really super rough draft of a new tune. I’m going to preface here: Yes, the song is sort of political. If that bugs you, turn back. Stop now. Do not proceed any further. I will not debate my political views. I feel no hesitation whatsoever about deleting comments. I do make every effort to avoid […]Read More New Tune: They Dying Light (Very VERY Rough)

Well, I decided to use the song I finished writing earlier this week to give Audio Evolution a full test drive, and decided to use my phone to do it. (Note: when recording on your phone, turn off app notifications, or at least wear headphones. I did not do this when recording the guitar and, […]Read More New Tune: In This Photograph
So, Happy New Year guys. It’s January first. The last of my new years guests has just left after several rounds of Coup – a game I never picked up because I don’t enjoy the whole deception thing – but learned quickly this isn’t actually a necessary component of the gameplay, and it went really […]Read More More fiddling about, this time, with sound and pictures. Ooo. Aaaaah.
I’m not even going to lie, guys. I have no idea what I’ve told you this month, what I haven’t. December is always manic here. Add to that the loss of a beloved pet, the addition of a new adoptee, and the cold from hell that roomie brought home just in time for the holidays […]Read More Merry Musical Holidays
This was mostly me experimenting with…I guess arpeggios? I really need to try and focus enough to learn my lingo, but my understanding at the moment is that when you play a chord’s individual notes instead of strumming it, it’s called an arpeggio. If I’m wrong, I’m sure someone on the internet will correct me. […]Read More Noodling around on the guitar, and learning type stuff.
This is a terrible recording. Seriously terrible. Between my mic stand now doing this thing where it randomly collapses for no reason, my chair deciding to sink for no reason, and my poor cat wheezing in the background due to a kitty cold, I just surrendered to a case of the ‘whatevers’ so I could […]Read More New Tune: Generic Love Song
