Daily Panoramic, Home Studio project (Unfinished)

Hi boggers,  thank you for visiting  receiving or sharing my posts.  A little about what i’ve been up to..  Checked back into the music department at  City college LA, prior to my checking into Cal  state Dominguez hills for electronic music  if it works out. It’ll mean a BA..

MONDAY i used a pencil for the 1st time in twenty years.. I remember why i became a musician..my hand writing is TERRIBLE!

 So it was getting uncomfortable  at my recording studio set-up. (gear changes over time)  It was time for a rebuild. My daughter reminded me this is studio ver.3. I’ve done this many times. I love working with wood. My days in high school in Connecticut made me a wood cutter/craftman. I love the smell of  wood, fresh cut wood….I’m use laths,band saw, table saw, jig ect… I though i would work at a wood shop but. it’s hard in la with Mexican labor so inexpensive i couldn’t compete with that. So communication/computer tech..real world job. Besides music gigs and or assignments.

I spent lot’s of time  sitting working on  music.this was my self-assign projectProject Studio Plan

And so that became this unfinishedProject studio unfinished

Gear

I5 core processor  16gb of Ram and Asus P8-Z22-V motherboard 85 watts of premium power from a quality manufacture. Big giant ugly case with removable hard drive bays. Multi-Drive DVD/Blue -Ray…Video is build-in intel chip until I can buy one or two monster video-cards .  Built this about two weeks ago…Didn’t have any more  funds, left for the hard drive in the PC budget. I swapped out an old hard drive yesterday.. I got a Western Digital Green,1Tb, sata..non SSD. SSD?  Solid state drive. It’s my next move before i get the video card(s). With this mother board i’m planning to use  a SSD drive for the booting and a regular drive for storage of content and music recording… The word is still out on SSD for music recording. Life cycle is shorter than regular drives. During music creation with the many unused takes, it creates, many lost bits and bytes.. A computer used for music recording,  Fragmentation of the hard drive is an issue.  Defragging of the drive is required  more than you would for general use..  You DO NOT de-frag a SSD drive!

I use Steinberg Cubase  for recording. I upgraded to version six, in November and they sent me seven!!!  Way cool but pricey! (500.00). I will blog about this one day.Asus P8-Z22-V

But why am I giving a gear report? (poorly proofed this one too)

No post yesterday! 😦

I was working on that particular situation.. I’m a gear nut, did not even do what i was suppose to do…Good thing i don’t have kids to pick up from school anymore..

I was suppose to mail my brother a motherboard yesterday……….

Michael i love you….I did not leave the house!

I’m going to do it in the morning

and I’m going to do it at night.

I’m doing it on the left

And I’m doing to do it on the right.

I’m doing it from sun-up

to doing it to sundown.

I’m doing it sideway

I’m trying it upsidedown.

I’ve flipping it and smacked it. And worked it  down to the bone.

I’ll keep on doing  it, whilst chatting with  ladies or eating a bone

I’m gonna keep doing this thing

breathing air.

until  cows

answer   phones…

Sunday Post: Christmas

What is your tradition? today In church I found I did not know  that St. Nickolas was a real  saint.

It just goes to show you how much you think you know versus what you truly really know. haha A good preacher should give something to chew on anyway.

I goggled it when i got home. (i have faith, not stupid)

My faith helped me regain my footing after a divorce.  And  i get along with my ex just like oil and vinegar…

 Merry Christmas

Vanterpools

And Now that I’m a strapping  sexy 30 year again, I need some tempering. My pastor &  his wife and their kids see that I maintain small head size keeping growth manageable.   I think they’re hating, but what can u do??

Christmas is my mom Elma Juliana Vanterpool Jacobs   .. Lord knows we didn’t have much  but we did have each other.  As far back as I can remember my mom worked at schools. Mom was the lunch lady at in St.Thomas at Lockhart elementary  school. VI.  They would give me more food just because….(building a fat boy) Then she’d work at Bluebeard’s Castle in the summers..

At Christmas, churching was geared up a notch. Father Clark would  requisition  two of my older brothers.. Larry & Ricky into service, which I believe, it’s called being an altar boys. yup, for a few years. I wanted  to get in the mix but I was to young.  As bad as they where as teens they needed to preload with God anyway. St. Andrew’s is an Episcopal Church down the street from my Grandmother House.

We would be allowed to order from the Wards or Sears catalogs what we wanted for gifts or gift depending on the financial status that year.  But it didn’t matter we always had the most fun playing with each other and each other toys. I think my brother Larry and I pooled  to get a big and better. (mom liked this) Big fun from a big family and I’m talking cousins speaking Spanish & french eating everything and having fun at all the various homes.. And this celebration of the birthday of Christ is not about gifts to ourselves. We learned a long time ago from our mom what Christmas is really about. We still wanted presents. Their is lot’s to be said about good will toward humans and peace and prosperity for all. To help other and doing your best to  not be crass and or a donkey. And not only during this week coming up, the birthday of Christ!  But the whole year.
An effort of kindness my not be thanked. So do it for another reason.
Happy Birthday  Jesus
God
Thank you for all..

Difficulties of der day

These last few weeks have been rough!  Life it’s shocking changes.  The good and a little to much bad,  lately.

I suffer from blogging apathy.

The Christmas vibe is not permeating. The system is off-tilt!  All the negative mojo about.

And no Saturday or forever thank Mayans!  It’s not suppose to be out of whack like this at this time of Season. I have no funny. an writing? i rather not..

(driven by and for profit)

Our news media  insanity of  over-reporting 24/7 and giving the easily influenced, an opportunity to be infamous. Daily repetitive bombardment serving no purpose  after the 1st report.   Fertile grounds  for the weak minded . Taking  factitious depravities and acting upon them.

Our Mental health programs are unfunded or non-extant .

America is making  headlines for the wrong reasons.  A  foot ball player who’s not handling his life well to a unbalance young person. The son of an educator, who’s love of guns cause the demise of innocent children. Taken from all whom loved them.

In our current world, the order of the day is

Greed, self glorification, the me and more me generation. (as i blog)

There is just No Love. Our world is  changing causing  environmental changes affecting  many. Hello Sandy. Next?  You’re waiting for saturday? I’m living for today.

This is  usually the best time of year for most of us. And yes there are many people that suffer from depression during the festive season. I say…. help someone, if you’re able.

One can stop, once and  in awhile, do an act of kindness! For no fucking reason whatsoever.

That’s not hard,  an act of  kindness may lead to another

Our young people, we need to show them and encourage them.  Allow for mistakes and errors.  I’m quite sure a  high majority of us where given chances  to recover from life’s mistake/s. Or maybe not. You should not penalize others because you’re  having a day of difficulty.  Selfish.. it seems.

Life’s a bed of roses, looking, smelling wonderful… but on every stem there are thorns.

Show humanity, love humanity Help your world in a positive way

Free you mind and your ass will follow..(George Clinton Parliament/Funkadelic)

see I’m all over the place?

Trying to get out of a

writing funk
