“Studies show”

May 28, 2008

i was just perusing this article that popped up in my browser’s default page (i guess it’s msn.com here) when i opened it up: http://green.msn.com/Articles/article.aspx?aid=369>1=45002&page=2 An excerpt: 1. Sodas Teeth go rotten with Coke. A 12-ounce serving of most sodas contains 7 to 10 or more teaspoons of sugar in the form of high-fructose corn […]

Pro Tools Overdubs Video

May 17, 2008

I made my first educational video the other day. My friend Mike recently got Pro Tools and had a question about making overdubs sound smoother.

It seems the “escort service” in Spitzer’s case was actually prosecuted, and convicted. Who knew? “[‘D.C. Madam.’] Palfrey was convicted last month in connection with a high-end prostitution ring catering to Washington’s […]

If it doesn’t exist in 3 places, it might as well not exist at all

May 1, 2008

So I have a ton of new songs I’ve been working on, recording demos as inspiration strikes and when I have free time.  Last night I thought of a vocal harmony for one of them (“so long” is the title).  So I brought up the Pro Tools session to record it.  To my horror, the […]
