Ether : 12 - Continued

 Ya know..  I think the whole "sight" thing is over-rated.  "Dispute not because ye see not" just shouldn't be an issue.  Prime example is Laman and Lemuel.  They saw angels, and it didn't do jack-squat.  Personally, I believe the sense of the Spirit (as opposed to the sense of sight, or hearing, or...

Jules Morrow - Amazing.

 So, last weekend I had the pleasure of recording a few tunes for an upcoming independent film (more details to follow as the project continues, I'm sure), and in these situations, I just never know what to expect. In this case, I don't think I could have been more blessed.  I had the pleasure of meeting Kraig Jacobson, and recording an...

Linode / Gentoo / sendmail problem [solved]
PoeticIntensity
0 comments
 When I first installed the 64-bit version of gentoo on linode, everything looked good - except I couldn't get apache to send email.   When I emerged PHP, it pulled in ssmtp by default, but that didn't seem to be sending mail at all.  So, I emerged sendmail.  That got me a little bit further, but the logs were giving me an error...

Good times with Shallow Sky
AudioGuru

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...

Ether : 12 - Amazing

So, the very first thing which came to mind this time around was from the first verse.  Ether seemed to be a fairly amazing person and a great prophet.  So... How did he get to be that way?  I'd love to hear the story of Ether's conversion - especially considering the environment he grew up in - being born in captivity.  Interes...

Ether : 11

 So, this chapter seems to be about the rise and fall of the people, and the rulers who ruled both in righteousness and wickedness. It seems to mow through a genration with each verse that goes by - very quickly.  I guess this chapter would be a good one to illustrate the Lord's prophets making promises, and then keeping them through la...

So...  Interesting that one of the reasons cited for Heth's righteousness is his remembering what the Lord had done for his people, specirfically, bringing Jared and his kin over the ocean.  There has got to be something behind the whole "remember what the Lord has done for you" thing, and living a righteous life.  Heck..

 So, last week, a client came in who presented a song to me, and we proceeded to record it.  It quickly became a favorite of mine, and I've since decided to produce it up beyond what it was originally, with the permission of the owner, of course.  The song is an acoustic version of Yellowcard's "Ocean Avenue", and I really,...

 Not much to write about on this chapter...  Lots of backbiting, hatred, slaying of kin, destruction of entire civilizations due to war, living in righteousness and prospering because of it.  Poisonous serpents, famine, more death, repentance, and just the general way the people live within the pride cycle. Not a bad chapter, but n...

Setting your heart upon the glory of the world has always seemed like a bad idea to me, but then again, for most of my life I've been kind of the odd-man-out.  heh..  My own siblings have mentioned to me that they "don't get me".  Most people would consider this a bad thing, but for me, it's been life.  The desire to &...

Due to the wide array of configuration options in Exchange, doing a step-by-step how-to would be, for the most p...

We had been anticipating the visit from Craig and Annie Young (my brother-in-law's family) for awhile, and I must say, their visit was simply delightful. I had to go and attend the LDSFest 2008 on Saturday, from noon until midnight, so I wasn't able to be home then, but I took Friday off and Friday was great! On Friday, we went and visited Temple...

Before I get to the fix, let me say that first, I...

New Song - "Dance With Me"

Well... Nothing too exciting in my life, but I thought I'd tell everyone that I wrote a new song.  As you can probably guess, it's called Dance With Me.  It's nothing more than a bass-line I came up with and a few more instruments. I've gotta say though, Ryan Phillips, the guy on the guitar is awesome.  I love working with him, an...
