"Throwing Rocks At The Sun"


Sweet Dreams.

BTW:  I've been away for a while.  Work load increase (getting ready for once every two year audit), trip to Baltimore (watched the Orioles beat the Red Sox, last game of the season), sick dog (Ringo has been battleing skin infections), cat murdered by dog from across the street, and now they want me to get an endoscopy and a colonoscopy at the same gig.  What a rush, it's no wonder I have developed a stuttering problem.  Oh, well, could be worse.

Have a good one! 8)

New post...

"Morning Prayers"
Imagine you are a small child, living in a place where before you go to school, you wake up with your father, bow towards Mecca, and say you morning prayers. You don't know about things like politics, wars, invasions, dictators. You play and go to school. One morning you awaken to your city being attacked. Total chaos is everywhere. Buildings are falling from bombs falling from the sky. People are yelling "The Americans are attacking!" Your life will never be the same again. This piece is dedicated to the most innocent victims, the children of Iraq.

All my cassettes are collecting dust.  Why don't I get rid of them?  Lots of Bil Nelson, The Residents, and some really rare Negativeland tapes.

Would I be wrong if I said Tangerine Dream "Rubycon?"
My fav is Mike Oldfield "Incantations". (sorry it took so long to respond.)

I'm just glad the new FSU coach kicked Steve Spewier's ass!

What I really like about vinyl...
I spent $12 at a Goodwill yesterday.  I got 3 best of(s) The Doors, Janis Joplin and Marvin Gaye.  Also Eric Clapton's 1st solo, Journey "Infinity" and David Bowie "Ziggy Stardust".  All excellent condition.

It's the search that keeps going. 8)

Where's Johnny Cash "Ballads of the True West"?

Line 6 Delay Modeler  Cool for loops and echoes (sound-on-sound like stuff)
Line 6 Filter Modeler (ok, but one note at a time)
Line 6 Modulation Modeler (great fun)
Danelectro Black Coffee Distortion (love the distortion on this one)
PAIA Quadrafuzz (overdrive X4)
Morley Volume pedal (it's actually a fuzz wah volume pedal, but I only use the volume)
Dunlop Cry Baby Wah  (this is a good wah, just got it)
Lexicon MX200 Reverb/Effects Processor ( I was looking for a good reverb box, this was the same price as little boxes that did 1/10 as this would)

"From the past" information:  It wasn't the costo of the pressing that broke us, it was the cost of having them shipped to us from the pressing company.

I'm finally off for the day.  I'm going to stop at Walmart, and go home and play with my dogs!

The only draw back is that 45 minute limit.  I'd have to edit everything.

I don't do scotch.  Something about that peat moss taste I just can't deal with.  At our house, our choices are either Stolichnaya Vodka, Jameson's Whiskey, or Bombay Saphire Gin.

So, while at Disney World, I decided to buy Christmas gifts for my co-workers.  While at Epcot, I further decided that since everything at DW is made in China, I might as well buy Chinese gifts from the China section.  I'm checking out and the two girls are from Hong Kong.  The discussion went from "It's really cold out" to "They are spraying water on the plants to keep them from being killed by the frost" to "We like oranges" to "In China we get oranges called 'Sunkissed'".  As we were walking out, my wife says "They get Sunkissed Oranges in China?"  I replied "and probably smoke lots of Marlboro's.  You don't think those boats go over there empty, do you?" :D
