Brilliant Days

Amazing CircleWhilst perusing the web for Joost invites, I stumbled across Øyvind Solstad’s BrilliantDays, a blog about digital media, among other things. Although my initial goal was obtaining a Joost invite, I checked out his site and was pleasantly surprised to find some cool things, which I’ve outlined below:

Photoshop tutorials


Lastly, Øyvind has a complaint about Pro Tools 6.9, which leads me to ask:

Øyvind, have you checked out Pro Tools 7.3? While I haven’t done any video work with Pro Tools (my experience is limited to audio), I’m curious to find out if they’ve solved the problem.

Farewell 2101

Digitech 2101 Effects Processor

I just sold this item on eBay, and I will never see it again. Although beaten & bruised, it served me faithfully on many a gig, and I owe it much gratitude. In a way, it is part of shedding the One Drum skin, since I used this effects/preamp unit quite extensively for bass and guitar when I was in that band. Farewell, Digitech Studio Tube GSP 2101!

April Snow

This is ridiculous. We got snow today, and I thought spring was coming. Some argue that this erratic weather is a direct result of global warming.

Quote of the Day

I was walking through the mall, and I happened to hear the following as I walked past two women:

I’m a big, fat-ass cow.

I had to seriously stifle laughter. I was way too bizarre and unexpected to hear such a candid statement.
