Smooth Intentions Project

A new group called "Smooth Intentions" made it down to the studio today and we began tracking a song called "Rain".  So far, it sounds quite good.  The song contains a gorgeous cello track, not often heard within the genre. We've got a keyboard track left to record, but the tune should be finished shortly. We'll se...

Linux + ATI != ETQW

Okay..  I have no idea why I'm writing this, but to heck with it.  People should know.  Either that, or I need to figure out what the hey I'm doing wrong. So, about a year ago I began a crusade to help AMD / ATI as much as I possibly could.  I've already been buying AMD processors now for at least 5 years for myself, my work,...

Which Drum Overhead Mic?

 Okay...  I've decided I'm going to get a little more serious about recording music.  I've had quite a few positive comments made about my recordings from 3rd parties, and over the years, I've enjoyed recording it more and more. So now, I'm here with approximately $200.00 to spend, and I think I'm going to get some overhead mics fo...

First thing out of the gate that I noticed this time around with this chapter is that the first thing Alma says to Corianton regards his disobedience - in a possibly sarcastic way, or at very least - sincerely displeased.  "Haven't your brothers been a good example for you?"  Anyway... I found that interesting Also noteworthy ...

m4a audio conversion in Linux

Today, an audio file was sent to me in an email.  This audio was compressed and encoded using the aac codec for compression and wrapped in m4a.  In order to use it, I had to convert this file to a wav format.  Usually, I receive files in mp3, ogg, or flac file types, and use lame, oggdec, or flac to decode them back to wav.  Wit...

Alma : 38
PoeticIntensity
1 comment
Of course, verse 1 immediately reminds me of verse chapter 36 and what I wrote about that.  But then, verse 2 held just as much interest for me.  First off, it seems that Alma talking to his three sons in these chapters has something to do with his being old enough to die at any time.  Yet, Alma's words talk about him having great jo...

I didn't really anticipate writing anything about the sustaining of the church officers after seeing it, but for some reason, when President Uchtdorf asked all the elders and high priests to stand and sustain Thomas S.

Interesting that one of the first-mentioned doctrines that Nehor was said to have taught was the very doctrine that led to the beginning of wickedness for the Nephites time and time again.  Pride.  "Being popular"...  Seems to resound with the core of what the adversary teaches.  Verse 4 pretty much testifies to his pr...

This chapter, to me, is all about following the Spirit. Verses 3 and 5 are among the most potent in all of scripture. "Feast upon the words of Christ; for behold, the words of Christ will tell you all things what ye should do." "...the Holy Ghost ... will show unto you all things what ye should do." Doesn't get any clear...

2nd Nephi : 4 - Part 1
PoeticIntensity

One thing which caught my eye this time, was the phrase, "I know that if ye are brought up in the way ye should go ye will not depart from it." I had to stop and read the sentence 4 or 5 times, just to make sure I wasn't seeing things. The footnotes on that sentence seem to confirm the vague meaning I'm deriving from it as well. ...

 If the fortifications that Moroni built in the beginning were enough to astonish the Lamanites to the point that they were afraid to fight, and then failed to kill even one Nephite, while they themselves were slain to the tune of over 1,000 - I can only imagine what the additional fortifications did...  Goes to show that a good Christian...

I saw a good movie the other day.  It's called "Meet The Robinsons". If you haven't seen it yet, and you like movies which actually have a moral (kind of tough to find now-a-days), I'd highly recommend it. A specific part of the movie caught my attention and is the cause for this entry.  The part basically consists of a li...

Stupid Kingmen.  Nothing like having your own people fight against you in the middle of a war.  One thing I noticed this time, which I had forgotten, is how Moroni followed the correct line of authority in order to do what he had to do with the kingmen.  He asked Pahoran for the right to take care of them, and Pahoran gave it to him....
