I read an article today in a magazine about people suffering from respiratory problems and how it is becoming really common. We live in a world where there is pollution everywhere and a huge number of the world’s population suffer from asthma, some were even born with the condition. I read about this guy who’s been having asthma problems since he was a kid. His doctor prescribed some advair diskus to reduce his asthmatic symptoms. I feel sad reading about these afflictions. I hope we can all just be healthy.
I admit, I don’t really know much about recording. I mean, yeah I’ve seen singers record songs, I’ve seen musicians record their music, but I don’t really know the process behind it. I was reading about converters today and I think I understand a little bit now how it works. In a nutshell, a converter works by taking an analog signal (sound, light, etc) and converts it into digital. Like for instance, the behringer ultragain pro-8 digital ada8000 at musicians friend, is a converter with built-in mic preamps which allows for a flexible recording environment. I gotta learn more about this stuff.
Have you guys ever been to a rave or mosh pit? For those who love loud, pounding music, you’d probably love the cool Mackie Speakers at musicians friend. I’ve read really great reviews about it. They say it’s super reliable with excellent sound and clarity. I don’t consider myself a party person, but I’ve had my share of loud events where you can barely hear anything other than the sound of your heart thumping and your eardrums near to bursting because of the loud sound from the speakers. That’s when you know that you got good quality speakers.
When it comes to guitars, I’m no expert. But I like looking at guitar models and I really love listening to awesome guitar playing. I was browsing online the other day and saw the applause bass at guitar center. I read the reviews, and apparently, some people love it, some people don’t. There was a guy who liked the tone and playability of the bass. I guess I will have my personal opinion once I am able to listen to it being played in person. Only then can I really say if I like the sound or not. But when it comes to the design, I like it.
I’ve always liked the piano. I took informal lessons as a child and I remember I was really good then. I learned quick. But as I grew up, I stopped the lessons and lost the skill altogether. I only had a few lessons, so it was easy to forget the basics. As an adult I bought an electric piano and started learning again, but it was not as easy as it used to be. I guess the older you get, the harder it is.
Have you ever experienced opening up an antique toy chest and end up accidentally smashing your fingers with the heavy lid? It’s not pretty. That’s why it’s always good to get a lid hinge or support. I found a good site for lid supports that sells lots of different types for a variety of applications. You can use it for chest hinges, doors, upward or downward opening flaps, etc. It’s perfect for lids that you want to come down slowly and avoid slamming or smashed fingers.
Coming from a musically inclined family, I grew up really loving music. I used to know how to read notes but as years went by, I kind of lost the skill. I was fascinated by the piano and sax. I remember going to music stores to look at their sheet music and try to learn how to read notes that way. I went online and saw the hal leonard sax at guitar center which is an instrumental play along book CD. This would be such a cool thing if only I knew how to play sax.
Do you ever feel like you’re just wasting your life? Like day after day, same old routine. What can we do to make my life worthwhile? What do we want, what makes us happy… what should we be doing so that it doesn’t feel like we’re just wasting away our limited days on earth? How do we find the meaning of life? What are we living for? Sometimes even if we do know what we want and what would make us happy, it feels like the world is freakin’ bent on conspiring against us, making sure we don’t get it. It’s like fate doesn’t want us to be happy. You wanna live life to the fullest but you don’t even know where to start. How do you do it? How do you stop the loneliness from creeping in? I have no idea. Maybe the answers are just around the corner.
