Mormon : 9 - Love?
PoeticIntensity
0 comments
Growing up, I used to have a mis-conception that those who erred against God in their ways were best suited for rebuke the way God gives it in the scriptures.  I was ignorantly judgemental, and for a long time, couldn't understand why people tended to shy away from my tactics. Reading the beginning of this chapter brings back a lot of those ...

Okay...  So, this isn't gonna be the rant that you thought it was by the title.  With the little time I have, I couldn't come up with a better one... So, the story is - I had just eaten a delicious burger at Coney's, when on my way home, I happened to turn on Rush Limbaugh.  He was talking about this new "cloud" technolog...

So, we received our new Oktava-Modded Apex 205 microphones, and the results have been very pleasing.  New songs by BTP, PoeticIntensity, and some voice-overs have used them, and we are definitely feeling the love.   Working as drum overheads, cab mics, and even acoustic guitar mics in stereo-pair.  All around, these are some rea...

Mormon : 8
PoeticIntensity

 Figuring out the mood and temprament of Moroni while he writes this is tough.  The things he writes about are horrific.  The Lamanites have killed his entire race, his family, and his father.  The "state of the union", as it were, was "continual warefare, bloodshed, and violence."   He had to be depress...

"Remnant of this people".  Talking straight to the American Indians.  heh..  I love the foresight. Guiltless...  I love that word.  He that is found guiltless.  Please note it does not say "sinless". To be found guiltless.  What would that entail?  Continual repentance would probably b...

Mormon : 6
PoeticIntensity

 So...  Here's a thought for ya.  Mormon had seen the end of his people.  He knew the Nephites were going to be destroyed, and not only that, he knew how and when they were going to be destroyed.  Verse 6 confirms this by relating, "...and knowing it to be the last struggle of my people".   He knew his people...

Mormon : 5 - Arms of Jesus
PoeticIntensity
0 comments
 So, the past few days have been days of trial, and these days come and go largely, I believe, to help me remember the covenants I've made to God, and to help me remember how sweet it is to feel the Spirit. When I read the end of verse 11, I wondered what those who had never felt "clasped in the arms of Jesus" might think of those ...

One of those three basics is about to get a serious upgrade here at Advanced Budget Studios. Today, Michael Joly of OktavaMod is modifying two Apex 205 ribbon microphones, and will be shipping them back ear...

In chatting with my friend Steve, I realized I haven't yet given any details as to my trip to Green Bay this week, so, before this weekend comes, I figured I had better write something.

Deleting Program Data in MythTV

Just thought I'd let you all know something that isn't readily apparent from googling - at least it wasn't for me.

I'm using MythTV .21 I came across a mailing list thread which had the ...
