Carl Verheyen plays all that with his eyes closed... I didn't even know it was possible to be that good. OMG.

Don't hate the character... celebrate the author.

Great stories are always colored with conflict. And if someone is a self-righteous twat to you, celebrate how much work had to go into making a character that is so great at being an asshole. 

Stop depleting your energy with emotional reactions and celebrate your story. I mean how ridiculous would it be to get all pissed off at the villain from your favorite movie?

Tear Along the Dotted Line is another fine example of some purely absurd genius. It's jaw dropping at times. Netflix has gold with this short animated series.

They use audio techniques that I can only describe as frequency changes that trick the brain into feeling something deliberate. It is also the first time I've ever seen a visual representation of how my brain processes the world around me. OMG.

You have to watch on Netflix as it's an English remix that was originally in Italian. I love how they leave a lot of the original references and creatively use subtitles to drive points... even as the narrator is speaking English. 

Sometimes it feels like a simulation of a simulation... of yet another simulation. lol

I looked deeply into my Author's eyes and in that moment I realized, I had nothing to ask.

Wow... I am loving this crazy new setup. I threw the snare, opened the hats way up, put the ride on the left, one rack tom and the floor. I'm getting some great 808ish sounds from the kick and the wash from the ride to the open hats makes for some interesting grooves. 

This Mapex has a very musical tone and the tunings pitch bend easily across the three drums. I got to discover some really cool note bending last night! Super fun. Coming from the Roland TD50, these are acoustic perks I miss.

Branch Engineering is a Youtube channel that is creating some amazing content in regards to how modern technology and devices work. The animation is almost lifelike and even if you have no understanding of engineering, the sheer brilliance of the presentation is worth the price of admission. (uh free... lol) 🤓🥚

These are the moments when I love reading back through the posts here. Seeing how far we've come. Revisiting hidden answers that were found in plain view.

I have never fit in anywhere. Never felt truly welcome or home. Not once in my life. Even in crowds, I feel both invisible and obtrusively obvious. Weird huh?

Tim Pierce breaks down some of Mateus Asato's magic. Even if you aren't a musician, you can easily fall in love with Tim's approach to this stuff. Being a master session player, his humility and energy is addicting.  #happyPlace

Are you desperately seeking or patiently seeking?

Happy Birthday to me... 29 again! Yay 🎉🥳🌮🥰🍰

My first gift to me.. from me... -> my new prototyping boards arrived and I'm so excited to see them in action.

The PCBs were designed to fit perfectly into the included Takachi case... add some premium components and you have the affordable prototyping kit you buy when you want a professional looking build.

Perfect for one-offs and non-production ideas... for less than twenty bucks. Awesome.

There isn't much on the digital shelves and definitely nothing on Amazon Prime. Not sure where to market these yet but I'm working on a plan :-)
