wow is my printer ever a piece of junk. i just printed out the cover for friday’s resonance show and it looks like garbage. ladies and gentlemen, i have a lexmark Z33. i think you get what you pay for when it comes to lexmark. this printer was about $80 a few years ago. piece of junk.
by the way, my mac is still kicking ass.
other good purchase: the radium 61. oh yes, so good. talk about a great keyboard – midicontroller. tooooootally changed the way i make music. i guess i am no longer AFK.. yet i am. but i am not. but i am.
hey here’s a bit of weirdness: Softcell – Memorabilia (Starecase remix). Yeah, those guys from the 80’s got remixed by those guys from the late 90’s and now it is finally seeing the light of day, sort of. i have got it, at least.
i think i am going to play it at the valentines party i am playing this weekend. oh yeah, parrrrrrrrrrrrty! and it doesn’t conflict with my radio show. and my radio show doesn’t conflict with work anymore.
when i was 15, i didn’t think i would ever volunteer for anything. i didn’t get the concept. i thought, at the time, that working was simply something you had to do to get the things that (i thought at the time) are really important, like cars, clothes, and general bling-bling. volunteer? why would i do that? i needed to spend my time earning mad-cash-money! i worked at randy river, a place plagued by heinous management and an awful wage with insulting rates of commission. i also quit the job after a year and a half, knowing that i was to move onto bigger and better things. and so i did, and so i have. now i spend volunteer hours at the 101.9 FM on-air booth and i volunteer at the hospital. it feels good to be doing things with my time beyond work. i am helping people and padding my resume at the same time!
but.. i digress.
if anyone liked James Holden’s Balance CD, which pretty much everyone i know did, then you’ll love Luke Chable’s new tune .. Quest – The Shepherd. really smooth stuff, brilliant production. i also recommend his other new tune called “Melburn.” Luke also happens to be responsible for the rather large remix of PQM’s “You Are Sleeping” which is on CD 1 of that Balance compilation that Holden put together. i have much more music to recommend, but you’ll have to listen to the show tomorrow night to hear it. yes, i have lots lined up. yus!
i want to circulate an 11 x 17″ poster for resonance so that everyone knows that it’s on fridays at midnight now. we gave out quite a few of the hand-held flyers over the last year. they were good, but now i want to get storefront window posters because, with the new timeslot, it’s worth fussing over. i also want to get a real domain for the resonance website instead of resonance.lefty.ca or resonance.dhs.org because they’re long and basically nonrelevant subdomains. of course, you could still use those previous URL’s but i’d like something that rolled off the tongue nicer.. like resonance.com. or resonanceradio.com. but they’re both taken. so. ideas? suggestions?
