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 […]

Stuff I Like Sunday (20)

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!

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…

…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 […]

“Come on join the joy riiiide, be a joyrider!” Eee, what better a way to start a new website than with a Roxette lyric from 1991! Inspired, of course, by this week’s Glee. I’m only half way in (V+ is awesome) and we’ve had The Doors, All American Rejects, Lionel Richie and Neil Diamond but […]
