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]
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
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...

Ether : 10
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.. E...

Backing the Music
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,...

Ether : 9
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...

Ether : 8 - Happiness vs Evil
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 &...

We had another LAN party this weekend, and it was up at Shane's house in Perry, UT. We played the usual, Enemy Territory: Quake Wars, and Unreal Tournament 2004.
Traffic was pretty horrible going up through Davis ...

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

Visit from Craig and Annie
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...

Drum Video Play-along
I've recently been working with Advanced Budget Studios on a project called Herod The Fink, and I just got done tracking drums to the last song, The First Noel.
Well, we taped the session to video, and have created a youtube video with the final version of the song, being played as I tracked the drums. The effect is pretty cool.
Take a lo...

Green Bay - Summed Up
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.
Day 3 (Wednesday) went pretty smooth. I woke up with a high level of sleep deficiency (surprise, surprise), and went out to the office for the last time.&n...

Being an audio engineer full-time gives me the opportunity to meet a lot of musicians, and go through a lot of music. Most of the music being recorded here is done by people who want to get a recording of a song or two that they want to post for their friends on social media sites, and that is great by me. The more good music out for pe...

My day started at 6:00AM with about 4 hours of sleep in me. Ah well... Caffeine has its purpose, right?
We started out thinking there would be 4-6 cars out there on the salt with us, but it ended up being just Steve and me. As it tu...

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...
