Everything and Nothing / Re: Now watching

Watched the opening of season 3 of the sopranos - and then pretty much just left murder, she wrote running when we were home most of the time.   Something stupidly relaxing about murder myster tv shows.   

I convinced my sister in mid-December that she needed to watch Lost - as her family had never seen it...  my brother in law called last night to say they'd just finished season 3... ha!   3 seasons in under a month.   Crazy.   What a way to see it though - all in a rush at once.

Just listened to the Untitled Improv... nicely done!

You might have a good point.   Maybe it's more of an American (US) sort of thingy.

I also wonder if it's not really a new age type of thing - but a coincidental thing.   My wife and I have a lot asian influenced decoration in our house, but we're not really 'new agey' in the spiritual sense - and her like of it has nothing to do with the music side of things.

I've noticed a lot of people in this thread (and in past "gear shot" type threads) - not everyone, but many people have a tendency towards indian, native american, aboriginal, african, etc... types of decorations - whether it's rugs, blankets, wall hangings or artwork, masks, etc...   Of course, quite a few drums tossed in as well which are both functional and ornamental... :)

np:

Lennie Kravitz - Let Love Rule - great album - when I'm in the mood there's nothing better.

was:

Jill Scott - Who is Jill Scott?  Words & Music Vol. 1 - Worth the price of admission just for the track "It's Love" - what a great groove.   Jill's voice is beautiful.

np:

jeff greinke - lost terrain - somewhat foggy, melancholy, washed out, lovely ambient

was:

the circular ruins - confluence - I've always liked this one from APK.  Weird thinking that this is now almost an "older" release... ha.

Sorry - no pics this time.  :)

I spent a ridiculous amount of time playing Daggerfall - I loved it.    I also loved Morrowind, but I think I liked Daggerfall better overall (even with the graphics and falling into the void issue in the dungeons... ha).    Oblivion was shaping up to be a better game than Morrowind for me, but I just didn't have the time to sink into it hiding in my studio - vs. playing little 8 and 16 bit RPGs on my DS and being a bit more social... ha.     

I'd never played a Final Fantasy game until I got them for the DS (or the GB Advance versions) - now I've played 2 through 6 (and some of 1).    Back in the earlier days I had a Sega so played through the Phantasy Star / Shining Force type games.   

On the DS... I'm really loving Etrian Odyssey right now - and the Fire Emblem/Luminous Arc type tactical RPG's are mighty fine as well.

Good point ... let's change the poll...

a)  It's Jesse's wife
b)  It's Jesse's mistress
c)  It's Jesse's secret transvestite side (an "executive transvestite" I'm sure - see Eddie Izzard / Dressed to Kill)
d)  It's Jesse's other personality
e)  It's Jesse's other mistress

Hmmm - maybe I should be moderating myself?

Either:

a)  It's Jesse's wife / girlfriend (sorry, can't remember if you're married!)
b)  It's Jesse's other personality temporarily taking over his forum account

Jonathan posted this in the Hypnos Artist section.   I thought I'd post a pointer in the Listening Booth in case you missed it.  :)

I'm still posting weekly downloads on my site every Monday. Some of the downloads are complete tracks, others are works in progress, but they're all free.

Thanks for listening!

I loved Oblivion - but yeah - I didn't sink as much time into it as I did for either Morrowind or Daggerfall.   Big key for me is I had Oblivion on my computer in my studio - as opposed to when I was playing Morrowind on my XBox - which I could play in the bedroom or living room and hang out with Heidi.   I sunk a ton of hours into Morrowind - but not all that much at all into Oblivion.   If I'm going to be squirreled away in my studio alone - I want it to be music time instead of game time.

I'm finding my little DS to be the perfect little game machine - portable - and Heidi and I like to play our DS's together (separate games - she's fond of Clubhouse Games - where I'm stuck on RPG's...).

I'm back to looking again - FocusRite and Presonus seem to be at the top of my list for value vs. function.   I had a nice chat with my brother-in-law who is looking into setting up his first daw... I'm going to point him to the forum here for advice...  he's looking to record primarily guitar.

Been playing Etrian Odyssey a lot over the last week.   Great dungeon crawl RPG... sprawling huge twisting dungeons - monsters are levelled really well, strong enough to kill your party once in a while which forces you to go explore other areas and level up a bit before tackling the larger monsters again.   I'm only on level 7 of 30 - and all levels I've been through have a few secret areas I can't get to until I find a key.   

Where Orcs and Elves is a great dungeon crawl in the traditional dungeon sense - it's almost shamefully short - but great - and worth the $20 entry price.   Etrian is a dungeon built out of a forest (which is a nice touch) - and lacks the humor of the other - but makes up for it in the longer term playability.

Sopranos marathons over the holiday vacation...   finished season 1 and all but the last episode of season 2.   It's been since they originally aired since I saw these - wow - better than I remember.   Fantastic show.

I love all the studio shots.   Great to see the variety of gear used by different people - whether it's a huge studio or a small one. :)

I'm revamping mine - moved some furniture out of my studio into the living room.   We gave our big couch to my niece - so a chair that was in my studio and some furniture in our bedroom has moved out to the living room - it's like our house grew several feet... woo hooo!

Pics in a few weeks.  :)

Also watched Bourne Ultimatum - very good - if you like the first two, you can't go wrong. 

Watched all of Lost Season 3 - wooo hooooo!   Great stuff!

Christmas Movies... the old Alistair Sim version of Scrooge - A Christmas Carol - my favorite!   The old version of Miracle on 34th Street - another favorite.   Also a couple of musicals with Bing Crosby and company... Holiday Inn and White Christmas - and the Frank and Bing Christmas Special - a 50's era tv show.

We had my family here on Sunday.   Christmas Eve was just Heidi and I and we had fun going to a little flower shop in a tiny town near here that had a lot of old Department 56 Dickens Village pieces (yea!).  Yesterday we spent the day at Heidi's step-mom's making cappellettis (an italian pasta soup thing - family tradition - though no one in the family is italian... ha).  Today we have Heidi's family Christmas part 1 at 4:00 - I'm taking my bass, guitar, bass amp, mixer, mics, etc... over and setting it all up because we bought our two nephews these digitech multi-effect guitar pedals - cheap - but wow - they sound good.   Then on New Years Eve we have Heidi's family Christmas part 2 because that's the only day her brother and family can drive down... 

Then we're done!
