The Big Mac Daddy

And no...that's not "Big Mac" as in the sandwich. It's big as in fat and mac as in Macintosh computer.

That's right. To the 8 PCs in the house, we recently added a Mac. The thing is a monster, really. It was one of the production servers at my parents old company...translation-it's a beast and has the Adobe Design suite and Macromedia Studio MX loaded.

Couple that with the Wacom Intuos2 Graphic tablet I got at the garage sale this weekend (for $20) and I'm on my way to some kind of graphic design nirvana or something.

And it's not that I hated Macs. It's just that it was insanely cost prohibitive up to now to have one. And I could never have afforded this one at present w/out ganking it from my parents.

I also loaded Cubase (it came with the Alesis iO/2 but sucked on PC) and transferred some files over from miniDisc. very cool. And very easy. yeah. I'll upload some pix soon. Just wanted to touch base and let y'all know that I'm still alive and kicking over here in Hooterville Junction.

peace out.

Out of Sorts

Not sure what my deal is today. I got up this morning to go for a walk and it was spitting rain, but no biggie. My thriftstore Nikes were kind of hurting my feet, so that didn't help. But it felt good to go for the walk (other than the hurting feet). And it's all going well...and then I get into work and just turn into PMS-Man.  I don't know what my deal is. I just feel bitchy this morning and I'm not sure why. Yeah. That's all I got.

Marriage Material??

I had a friend call me today, fuming. I consider myself a good listener on most days. Considering that I was out of town on a work trip and doing absolutely nothing in my hotel room, my listening game was on-point.

She recounted the exchange that sent her off. I will spare you some of the more personal details, but the gist was, at one point, the dude-bro she was talking to flat out told her that she wasn’t marriage material.

Torn between wanting to be a supportive friend and being completely gobsmacked, I felt her frustration. No. That’s not quite right. I didn’t feel the same frustration she felt. I’m approaching what some consider middle age. I’m white. I’m primarily interested in women. Oh, and I have a penis., I can never truly feel the same frustration she was feeling. Or an anger that comes from the same place her anger came from. No matter how in touch I am witn my feminine side (whatever the fuck that actually means).

Instead, the frustration and anger I was feeling w…

A Tribute to Limozeen may recall that I recently got my very first P.O.S. Electric Guitar back. And you may also recall the folly with the "amp" from Freecycle.

And now, dear readers, I will let you in on the dramatic conclusion to those harrowing tales.

From Bob at work I recently got a Vox Pathfinder 15amp which looks a little (exactly) like this:
I have to say, the amp freakin' rocks. It's got built in tremelo, and this killer overdrive feature which makes the thing sound crunchy as all get out.

So tonight, I decided to try it all out. The amp, the POS Guitar, the FAB distortion pedal (purchased the day of the Sam Ash incident), the Alesis drum machine and the Alesis io2.

The results are just...well, funny.

I give you the theme song to the soon to be hit WB-Series, "My 'Tard Husband." I call it "shortbus." Take a listen here. It's about 3MB in size and 4:14 of unbearable cheese (and the guitars get markedly louder at about the minute mark-you've been …
