A neighbour gave me an as-new HP Netbook today. I've just installed #Manjaro and it's faster than Ubuntu.
I just need to tweak some of the audio settings.
This is all done as I anticipate the demise of my MacBook Pro - or rather the now bloaty OS and the no-longer-supported-in-the-near-future apps.
I need to find a literary agent. Tricky thing is everyone I talk to says - oh you have to 'know someone'....
I have this book that needs to be published, and read - widely.
My book is called #YesICan and is the sort of thing someone at an airport would buy. Motivational, yet psychology based, and practically written.
When I reply to someone on my timeline, I am then returned to the top of my timeline, rather than where I was.
HEY MUSIC FRIENDS:
My new #discourse instance is up and running! My idea is to use it as a FB groups replacement and also as a place to share longer-form interactions in a group setting (something I'm finding hard to do on #mastodon).
Specifically I'd like to use it as a place to share musicmaking stuff (synths, software, studio setup, etc).
Anybody out there want to come kick the tires? Hit me up for an invite!
Is ACIM big on Japan?
New blog post "My Dream Job" - plus a pilot episode of a forthcoming podcast.
Any audio engineers/musicians out there in the fediverse??? 🎼
Any tips on recording vocals? This is a pretty general question on purpose but I'm interested if anyone has an interested tricks to recording good vocals in the home studio.
I'm not new to this and I have some good gear already. I'm just curious as to what fun stuff you have tried.
Then, my wife and I went to the first performance of classical music we've been to in years: Pieces for violin and piano by Brahms, Prokofiev, Firsova & Bazzini.
There's nothing that compares to live classical or choral music for me. None of the other music I listen to really touches me that deeply.
There's a petition to Save the .org top level domain. Apparently, ICANN could still stop it from being sold.
I know, petitions rarely work, but I also know that _sometimes_ they do.
Please consider signing if you _run_ anything there, or if you _use_ or _care about_ anything that's on a .org domain. Also, boosting this to others who follow you, would be very much appreciated.
