13-hour Studio Session
Yup.. Today was awesome. I had a 13.5 hour session, and it was just amazing. The song creation process was a bit difficult at times, but little-by-little the song formed, and both me and my client (Jed Lefevre) were kind of dumbfounded at the end result. In the first hour, we had a piano track, and that was it.

Singing In The Celestial Room
So, I don't have near the time to dedicate ato this right now as I should, but I'm gonna need half-a-day to get it all out.
Yesterday (Friday) I had a 'dress rehearsal' for the Temple Choir, and the singing in the Celestial room was indescribible. It was amazing to sing there, and the acoustics were wonderful. But the thing I k...

2015 Conf #4 - "Yielding Hearts to God"
"Yielding Our Hearts to God" or "Change of Heart" - Man, I love this talk.
I wish I could tell you all how much this talk means to me. When I heard it the first time, I was with noisy kids, so I didn't get much out of it, but the next time I listened to it was during lunch, and I was alone. I...

2015 Conf #2 - "God Is At The Helm"
"Hold on with Both Hands"
- I love this quote. It suggests that holding on with one hand isn't enough... and honestly, in my life, it hasn't been enough. When I live the Gospel half-heartedly, I feel a contrast to the times when I know I am giving it my all. The closer we draw to God, the closer God draws to us (...

2015 Conf #1 - "It Works Wonderfully"
Quote - "Sometimes, the truth may just seem too straightforward, too plain, and too simple for us to fully appreciate its great value. I wonder if we as Church members might also benefit from asking ourselves from time to time: “Is my experience in the Church working for me? Is it bringing me closer to Christ? Is it blessing m...

So, today's entry is going to be a bit less, but I still was able to see God's hand in my life quite a bit.
I had a late studio session to tend to, but I had felt horrible all day long... I prayed that I would be able to have a great session, and it went really well. Everything that needed to happen, happened, and nothing too t...

So, I haven't been one to get on the 31 days of Thanks in November, just because I generally think it's shallow to do such a thing only in November, as we should be doing it all year round, but that, in itself, is even more shallow, because I've never ended up actually doing anyhting of the sort, ever. So, this November, in the Spirit o...

I should be way more tired than I am.
I just got done praying, and a day before that I had just got done sinning. You know the kind I'm talking about. It's the kind you really need to rid yourself of. The kind that always keeps creeping around, finding an idle brain-cell to occupy... So, yeah... Hundreds, if n...

I'm not quite sure why I chose the title, "Sunday Miracles", but it seems to suit what happens when one chooses to follow the Spirit. In any capacity.
Nothing too earth-shattering for today, but I felt inspired to come down and write. I personally believe the Holy Ghost is far more active in our lives (even if we choos...

Studio vs Live...?
So, I recently went to a Walk Off The Earth concert, and it was awesome. Their concerts just keep getting better and better. As good as it was, that's not the purpose for this entry. The purpose is a guy named Scott Helman, and a thought he provoked.
Scott Helman performed for 30 minutes before WOTE came on stage. He...

Daddy's Little Soldier - Finished
Last night, Christie Berube came over for the finishing session on her new song, Daddy's Little Soldier, and to be honest, it was a complete honor to work with her on such a brilliant piece of musical artwork.
As an afterthought, I usually like to listen to the final master on as many different sound systems as possible, just to learn from what ...

Starting 2009 off right!
Well.... It became time again quickly to have a LAN party after the craziness of the holiday season. So, we decided to have one two days ago. It was fairly awesome.
I didn't bring my camera, so I don't have a video of this one, but suffice it to say that this one was pretty darned fun. It started with Eric Hansen and I lo...

Good times with Shallow Sky
So, this weekend I had the pleasure of meeting yet another one of Utah's finest bands. The band's name is "Shallow Sky", and if their music is any indicator, these guys are gonna stick around.
To be honest, I expected the 3 sessions (totalling 26-hours) with these guys to be a bit rough, due to only my incredible lack of sleep las...

My Kindness (musical number)
So... Today was... beyond words, really.
It was a day that just brimmed with spiritual opulence. I woke up at 7:00, to warm up my voice (after having a pretty intense drumming session which lasted until midnight yesterday), and then went to practice the musical number at 8:00am, to sing it for the congregation at around 9:45.

Hi there! I'm PoeticIntensity
I guess this is my journal... still.
I started journaling when I was 14, in 1990, as a new years resolution. I had no idea then just how much I would get into journaling.
It took me 12 years, off and on, to transcode all of my 3000+ journal entries, and then put them into a database. I ...

Samuel at two weeks
Here are the latest pictues of Samuel and the kids. He is doing really great! At his two week check on Monday the Pediatrician said he looks perfect. We are adjusting pretty well. The main problem for me is just lack of sleep right now, but that will get better with time. Anywho, enjoy the pictures.

Love Through Trials
My marriage, or rather, the marriage I have entered into with my sweetheart for the last 7 years, hasn't really been that bad. In fact, I'd say we're definitely on the upper-hand of "marital happiness" as far as the national statistics go.
There are quite a few reasons for this, I'd say. One is definitely that I feel I'm giv...

Ugliest Animal Ever
Okay... This is an unusual post for me, but I can't believe what I just saw.
For years I thought the hairless cat was the ugliest animal alive, but no - not even close to tell you the truth.
Goes to show that mother nature really isn't discriminatory at all. "Sickeningly ugly or average or whatever, come one come all", s...

Disney DRM, Ripping DVDs
Lately, I've been viewing a few Disney flicks on DVD. I got Bolt and Bedtime Stories. Because I usually rent them on redbox and can only have them for a day, I will rip them, and then when I get around to it, I'll watch em' then delete them. No problems with that, as far as I can see. I rent them to view them once, and that'...

IE min-height solution
Why does Microsoft insist on making life so hard for developers?

FFmpeg Webcam Video in Linux
Okay... I've been wondering how to do this for quite some time, and I finally figured it out with the help of this mailing list thread.
I've always thought ffmpeg was a pretty amazing program, but now, I will build a shrine to it and worship it weekly.
Ffmpeg is the program which allows me to create a video with sound in Linux.

Notes on AC3 to MP3 using ffmpeg

Phenom VS. Athlon X2
Ever since I built my first computer with a K6-2 200MHZ processor back in 1998, I've never looked back. I've been an AMD guy my whole computing career.
Recently, AMD has been having some tough times with their processors, and understandably, people haven't been buying their stuff as much.
For what it's worth, I definitely had my doubts ...
