Blue Aces Bring The Heat!

With as little sleep as I got last night, when I woke up this morning, I was a bit worried about the Aces' session today.  Man alive!  I don't know what I was worried about!  These girls nailed their new song, Fooled Twice, wholeheartedly!  Spot-on timing, vocals, tunes, and had a great time, to boot. You're gonna love it!&nbs...

Man...  11 straight hours of tracking can sure be....... FUN!  Yup...  Herod the Fink is still on schedule, and after yesterday's session, I can say the end product is gonna be something you've never heard in a Christmas album before, guaranteed.

Hmm....  I can't help but contrast a note like this one being sent between friends today.  Holy cow. If I were to send a message like this to any one of my friends (Pahoran was a good man, and a friend to captain Moroni), I'm fairly sure I would at very least offend them to the point of damaging the friendship, and at most, cause them t...

I spent today away from my sweetheart, so I thought I'd see what kind of a "1 day love song" I could write to her.  So, I took approximately 5 hours and wrote her a love song.... or something...  It's my first attempt at recording myself playing guitar, and the lyrics consist of 8 whole words.  So...  Here ya go. ...

Session with Fatigi

So, last night we finished recording the first two songs from a band called Fatigi.  One of the best recording sessions ever. So, on Tuesday evening, Adam, Christian, and Robert came in, with drums in hand, ready to get to work. We tracked drums first, which, for my studio, is rare - mostly because drums can get monotonous with nothing b...

Okay...  First question about this chapter which really intrigues me is this:  Why would Moroni immediately assume wickedness on the part of the Nephites as soon as Nephihah was taken over? I don't ask this question rhetorically, or sarcastically because if I were him, I guess I could think of a thousand other reasons why a city would g...

Hehe.... According to this verse, I guess even Lamanites can learn! "Stand fast in the liberty wherewith God has made us free!" Yeah... I think I'm gonna have that made into a poster, and hang it on my wall or something. The big message of this chapter, and the few preceeding it, for me, would have to be "Rely on The Lord for y...

Reading this chapter with Mormon talking quite frankly to the reader of his book is really quite inspirational.  The later verses of this chapter would be ones to really dig at and lean into every word which is written. The testimony within me of the Book of Mormon is probably the oldest testimony I have.  The only one I can think of wh...

The opening talk by President Monson was inspiring.  I love how he talked about his wife, the stories of them meeting, and the fact that her parents were converted to the Gospel by his grandfather's brother.  (I'm amazed he knew that, by looking at his photo!)... Also..  When Pte. Monson said that the presidency loves all those of t...

I simply must blog about this - quickly. When I arrived home from a trip through some pretty insane snow tonight, I simply had to test a theory I had about my 2007 Mustang GT's headlights vs. fog-lights.  (Apart from the chance to drive like a maniac in the snow, which I absolutely love) So, I get my car going about 25 down a very lowly-li...

Today I had an interesting thought.  It's a question that possibly has thousands of answers, but, since I'm on a pensive streak, I thought I'd write down some of what I came up with.

Interesting that in verse 7, the example he uses of an unrighteous king pretty much parallels what happened to the Nephites in the Land of Nephi under king Noah.  Couldn't have been many years since the people of Limhi had come to join Zarahemla, anyway.  I've never thought of that before. Verse 13 is always a fun one.  It's great ...

I've often wondered what the significance is behind them not understanding God's words the first 2 times.  What immediately comes to mind as I ponder this, is the angel Moroni speaking to Joseph Smith 3 times, repeating the exact same message, added upon, each time...  But Joseph understood Moroni's words each time.  I can't think of...

From the beginning of this chapter, it's obvious that Christ means business when he makes covenants.  Causing entire books to be written, and then keeping 100% of everything that is written means something. I wonder why the people thought that Christ's coming "destroyed" the prophets?  Interesting. I love verse 9.  &q...
