I Believe You

I follow it irregularly, usually watching the first and last few episodes of each season, but I'm a huge fan of The Voice. It's a show that has set itself apart from others in the same genre. It's original and genuine, much like its judges.  Their unscripted and spontaneous interactions make the show what it is. They are amicable with each…

NanoStudio

Ever since I got my iPod touch a couple years ago, I've always wanted a decent music creation app.  The best ones tend to get lost in the thousands of similar junky ones and at the same time you have to rely solely on reviews without being able to try it out without buying it. I resumed my search within…

Right now I'm at work with Matt (entering HUNDREDS of camper registration forms) and will leave tomorrow for Alexandria -and a…

Blown Speakers

We just had to pay to replace two blown speakers on portable sound systems we have at work.  Speakers are blown when someone turns the volume too loud for the speakers to handle.  Here's my question... Why don't manufacturers just make the volume knob only go to the maximum point that the speakers can handle?  It's absurd that we can…

Birthday Tone

Normally when I get birthday money, I already have something in mind to purchase and I get it right away. This year I started saving money for a new guitar. After some research, I had my sights on a Gibson Les Paul. Those run around $1500 and at the current birthday rate, I wouldn't be getting it until 2014. So…

Oh a tree in motion

When I was in fifth grade I was with my stepsister, Tammy, and we heard a woman request a song on the radio. She asked if they'd play "Oh a tree in motion." The DJ laughed and informed her the real song title was "Poetry in Motion." I thought it was funny. I still do.
