So, if you don't know already, I have been one of two people obnoxiously pushing a kickstarter campaign for the last 3 weeks.
The newly formed duo (Me, and Jesse Crowley) called "Tiny Boats" has been working on their debut album since early March of this year.
Tiny Boats' music could be classified as the energetic...

So, about 4 or 5 years ago, I met a guy named Jesse Crowley, and we played music together. At first we played music that other people wrote, but then Jesse got bored with that, and decided to write Christmas music instead. We recorded a few Christmas albums, and I think they turned out pretty good.
So, Jesse decided that wasn't enough...

So lately, I've been experiencing a lot of clients coming in, giving studio time as a gift, and to be honest, I think that is awesome. As always, ya never know what to expect when a new client comes in, but I've gotta say, anyone who gives the gift of music is probably someone I wouldn't mind hanging around in the studio.
As a way of saying...

Music Speaks For Itself
With everything going on that has to do with running Art City Sound, and making sure everything is taken care of, it's easy to forget what is really important. Of course, my family is, and always will be, #1 in my life, but aside from that, the most important thing in this studio is good music. Having a good time is a definite plus, but...

Utah Valley = Talent!
So, I've had the opportunity for the past few months to work full time with clients from all over Utah Valley. From the sweet harmonies of By Request's soft country swing, to the relentless brutal drive of The Suffering's hardcore sound, the longer I'm in company with musicians of this area, the more I'm convinced that Utah Valley seems to be...

That said, the road in front of me is surely going to be one full of suprises, twists, and turns.
For those of you who ar...

So, I've been surfing around the net today, figuring out how I'm going to work in the new website with the old one and what-not, and while doing so, I found out that apparently, Art City Sound is nothing but a big piece of Volvo heavy machinery. Take a look at this link for proof. (link here, too). While you're at it, take a...

Pilot #1 / New Name
So... Yeah... Holy cow. I started writing this as a Facebook update, and quickly realized ther was too much to say, so, into the blog it goes!
The bottom line is - We are back in business, people!
As of right now, the new studio is close to being finished, but the good news is - we can record. I've got 3 channels wired up, a...

Hi there! I'm PoeticIntensity
I guess this is my journal... still.
I started journaling when I was 14, in 1990, as a new years resolution. I had no idea then just how much I would get into journaling.
It took me 12 years, off and on, to transcode all of my 3000+ journal entries, and then put them into a database. I ...

Yesterday, we welcomed in a new client, ScramJet to the studio by running a recording marathon with them!
We pulled a full 8-hour session and all through yesterday, we managed to get recordings for three whole songs. By the end of the day, our engineer was ready to collapse.
Today, they all came back to...

Comcast Bit Torrent Filtering
I've been using Comcast for my personal Internet connection now for about 5 years. Personally, I think they do a great job. My connection goes down on average about once per year, and it just works really well with my lifestyle. I think the price is a bit much, but having a steady Internet connection means a lot to me, so I keep i...

Ibanez SR-300 + Kustom Amp!
Since we've opened for business, and even before, I've started to notice a sad trend in recording audio. This is speaking extremely generally, and there have been a few people who have definitely broken the mold, but in my experience, I've noticed that the musical instrument getting the least amount of love is the bass guitar.
For the most ...

I just got done reading about and listening to a wonderful audio-bite from good ol' Steve Ballmer. Honestly, I don't understand why Microsoft keeps him employed.
Anyway... According to Mr. Ballmer, Linux is no longer free. So, with that in mind, please do not try to download Linux from here, or here, or here, or here, or here, o...

I just finished putting my 5-year-old and my 3-year-old to bed.
Earlier today, they both went to the dentist to have a check-up, and for Luci, it was a semi-traumatic experience. She did really good, but at one point, she was seriously distraught about this gun-looking thing which sprayed water everywhere, and the vacuum they were going to ...

Daddy's Little Soldier - Finished
Last night, Christie Berube came over for the finishing session on her new song, Daddy's Little Soldier, and to be honest, it was a complete honor to work with her on such a brilliant piece of musical artwork.
As an afterthought, I usually like to listen to the final master on as many different sound systems as possible, just to learn from what ...

So, I recently went to a Walk Off The Earth concert, and it was awesome. Their concerts just keep getting better and better. As good as it was, that's not the purpose for this entry. The purpose is a guy named Scott Helman, and a thought he provoked.
Scott Helman performed for 30 minutes before WOTE came on stage. He...

No, my computer didn't fry.
My mohawk went bye-bye.
Yup. I woke up yesterday morning and just couldn't ...

A person online was claiming to be selling a MXL V77 tube microphone brand-new in-the-box for incredibly cheap. This microphone didn't mean much to me at the time, but something intrigued me about it. After 20 minutes or so with google, I kne...

Two weeks later, I add some vocals and effects, and this is what you've got.
I hope you like it. (press the ...

When I originally got the box for my new ATI Radeon HD4850 video card this morning, I was impressed even in the ...

IE Caching AJAX bug
As programming techniques become more and more complex, and the programmers continue to be just as, or more, diversified, companies who insist on being the industry standard while tossing away organizations such as the W3C, make life as a web developer increasingly difficult.

New Song - "No Way Out"
At the beginning of this year, one of the things I wanted to accomplish by next year was to write enough songs to create an album. So far I have 3 songs I reallly like, and one which I think should be destroyed by fire. Not too shabby, considering it's only the beginning of February.
When I was 26, 1 day after I had broken up with my...
