How To Make Music (or why ProTools sucks!)

Posted on

I’m in a ranty mood today. I’ve already picked on a few things today across the social mediasphere but for the blog, I’m picking on music. Or more accurately ProTools. So Dave Grohl had a rant at the grammy’s (yes lower case g) about fake music, music made with computers, anything where the artist has […]

Fings I Like Friday (23)

Posted on

1) My tattoo. A minor repeat I’m afraid but relevant nonetheless. As we move into the cold weather season, I stop wearing T-shirts and go for long sleeves. This is sad. No longer will my sleeve creep up my arm revealing a hint of blue and no longer will a hasty choice of T-shirt be […]

Stuff I Like Sunday (20)

Posted on

Ok, a little delayed on the Fings Friday this week. It’s been a super busy few days. I need to be a lot more disciplined with this blogging lark! 1) The Playstation. This week the Playstation turned 15!! I remember being a big fan of alternate systems like the N64 and the Dreamcast and then […]

Well, I managed one extra post this week! 1. BBQ’s. I love the hot weather and sitting out in the garden eating perfectly grilled meat! This week we had steak burgers and sausages! Also, it’s really awesome finally having a proper garden that I can mow and water the plants and build a washing line […]

I watched a change in you…

…it’s like you never had wings, now you feel so alive. So, Music Mondays. I was discussing with the missus earlier today about getting rid of some of the stuff we’ve both hoarded over the years. We talked about getting rid of DVD’s, we have hundreds, and we’re happy to get rid of those. Then […]

Just Another Manic Monday

I wish it was Sunday! Out travelling at a clients today and it has been a terrific day, weather wise. Fortunately I spent most of it in an air con conference room! I travelled by train and went through a whole load of countryside and it was just beautiful. The weekend weather was much the […]

Here we go again… 1) Sunshine. When the sun shines I can dry the washing outside and get it all done in a day! 2) My Virgin V+ HD box. It allows me to get HD TV which is particularly good for sport. It also allows me to not worry about making myself regularly available […]

Fings I Love Friday (3)

That time of week again! 1) Aurora. She has hit the bottle, presumably in a bid for attention: 2) My new gym regime. It feels really good and makes me finish work on time so I get to the gym before it’s too busy. 3) Flight of the Conchords. Saw them in Birmingham this week. […]

Errr..yeah so I missed my first Things I Love Thursday so I’m starting a new trend! 1) I love riding my bike. I feel so free and the wind wraps and swirls around me. It’s a lovely, electric feeling. I sound like I’m five years old! 2) I love One Day Remains by Alter Bridge. […]

You can’t run from the future…

..You can’t change the past. You’re not that fast. A little late with this one but I had to review it. I got the new Slash album a few weeks ago. It’s been described as Slash and Friends. At first glance you think “Oh God not another one of those crappy celeb collaborations (abhorations??!!)” but […]

So, in the morning when the rooster crows…

Posted on

…pack your bags and get ready to go. Today I listened to the first Black Stone Cherry album. I love their second one and this one ain’t half bad. It starts out as a bit of chugfest, which isn’t bad really but they’re so much more than that. Then you get a song like Hell […]
