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. To give you an idea of what was recorded yesterday, the title of one of the songs we ...

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...

2nd Nephi : 1

Sitting here pondering what to write. I could write about a synopsis of 1st Nephi, which I finished last night, or I could just dive into 2nd Nephi.  I think I'll do the latter. Verse 6 could be quite the controversial verse, for people who didn't like the Spanish conquest, or Christopher Colombus.  Yet, the verse still is what the ...

The first thing that stood out to me this time around was the anger of Lamoni's father.  Try to place yourself in the situation Lamoni found himself in.  There are so many variables in the situation, it's hard to imagine exactly what was going on with the family undercurrents, but holy cow.  Lamoni's father drew his freaking sword an...

Ya know, I love verse 6, and verses like it (2nd Nephi 4, for example).  The reason is quite simple. Sometimes it's hard to remember that prophets are people, too.  They're just subject to Satan's temptations and mistakes and errors and such as we are.  Verses like this remind me that they aren't perfect, and it brings them down to...

2nd Nephi : 4 - Nephi's Psalm
PoeticIntensity
0 comments
First, a question. In verse 15, Nephi states that he delights in the scriptures, and that he writes them according to the spirit.  Well...  That leads me to question whether or not he realized he was a prophet or not.  Very interesting, and possibly stupid, question (maybe he already knew about D&C 68:4). Now, the chunk of ...

Last Friday, we had the awesome opportunity to meet a fairly incredible group of girls.  They call themselves The Blue Aces, and after having listened to them strum a few chords, I'd say they've earned their title.

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 ...

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.
