  • Ah, the grinding of the contractors down the hall has started early this morning. #
  • Ugh, traffic is so frustrating when I get out of the house this late. #
  • "If you want to work in recording, you need to know Pro Tools." is like saying "If you want to blog professionally, you need to know Word." #

  • And to tools used by other hobbyists, who are willing to discuss and help online… #
  • I think I just put the far future on hold to try and make room for the near future. #
  • A quick shoutout to @DrumArt – their custom bass drum sticker was great, and the free pen they sent me has been shockingly reliable! 😉 #
  • I have a drum beat that kicks in when I'm not doing something specific. Realized today that it's basically Run-D.M.C.'s "It's Tricky". #
  • Note also that @PennJillette and @MrTeller are in the original video for "It's Tricky". 🙂 http://bit.ly/lQY5Ti #
  • Never successfully installed an Adobe CS5 product or update on Mac OS without major issues. Never had trouble installing anything else. #
