Congrats, for your first gig! Hopefully, the first of many....  ;)
And, more congrats for the fund raising! That was a fine thing to do and a brilliant way to use your launch!  8)

I had my first gig last night! Instead of collecting tips for me, I decided to make it a fundraiser.  We collected $383.25 for the local food bank!   :D

I found changing the velocity in Reason a little fiddly for my taste....but the overall SOUND of the instruments was outstanding!

Hey agr, I tried out the full version of Reason last year, but I like more control over the patterns. For my workflow I like Groove Monkee & Odd Grooves to lay down a root feel, then I go back in 90% of the time & tweak....add a ghost snare hit here, a cymbal there, etc. I found changing the velocit

Old sucks...
« on: July 13, 2018, 08:45:53 PM »
Once again, sorry about the absence.  I’m going a little nuts here.  It’s been a crazy few months, with tons of crazy things going on daily.  Then two weeks ago, I was asked to rebuild two websites.  Two days later I was asked to build two new websites.  And the next day I was asked to develop 3 marketing videos.

In the middle of this, the family has been going in circles with my brother’s kids (the one that died) for the last few weeks about where and when to bury my brother.  They’re being dicks, and it looks like we won’t be able to bury him till September.

And during this, last week, another cousin passed, and on the same day one of my best old friends was killed in a car accident.  Then over the weekend a brother-in-law (of 58 years) died.  Trying to support survivors.

This is all added to trying to take care of the wife’s folks, who aren’t doing well.  Especially her Dad.  Doctor appointments, hospital visits, lots of other things they need.  And they live 350 miles from here.

I know I’m supposed to be helping with a few things here on site, but I don’t know when (or if) I’ll be able to grab some time.  The last few months have been bad, but this month is pure hell.

Not looking for sympathy or making excuses, just wanted to let everyone know I’m pretty well strung out right now and will be for a bit.  I’ll try to check in once in a while, but won’t be around much or be able to do anything in the foreseeable future.  Hopefully things will get back to normal sometime soon.

Meantime, hope everyone else is doing well...

Sorry to hear of all your losses and troubles, Boss, you really don't deserve all that....

Take all the time you need.

I rescued the liquor cabinet keys, from PG and am currently just checking that the contents match the labels.....  ;)

Keep safe yourself, Boss! And that IS an order.....   )(?

Thanks, guys, appreciate the thoughts.  And appreciate all the hard work, White.

Besides the songs I should have already written (but haven't), I think I need to write one sometime soon just to blow off some steam...

My concern was that you, yourself were OK and I can see you are but you're caught up with 'the other side of life' (good title for your next song).
Thoughts with you.

Wow, I thought I have had a busy month or two.  Hopefully you can get a few minutes to relax and drop in every now and again.
