Is there anybody...out there? Sorry, just had a Pink Floyd lyric fly by my head. Whassup? I am in Techno-Purgatory, i.e. I am in the process of putting a new computer system together in my studio to record with. I decided to go PC (Yes I know all you MAC purists out there are choking right now and saying, “but MAC is industry standard”). Honestly, I think Bill Gates just lets Apple hang around for the sole reason of not having to deal with anymore monopoly s#!t.

Anyway, for all you tech heads out there just dying to know, I got a Sony Vaio PC with a Pentium 4 at 2.6GHz, with a gig of RAM, and a 80 gig hard drive. I am running Cubase SX, and I am about to get (or for my Texas friends - “fixin to get”) a MOTU 896. Then I will be cooking with butter. But for right now, I am in Techno-Purgatory trying to get all the new toys working together and at the same time. So, new tracks are just as far away as my understanding of the new equipment takes me.

Gigs are good. Still playing a lot in Manhattan Beach. I did get a couple of calls for some road work, but nothing has materialized out of that yet. Vee shall Zee! Hope you are keepin it cool during this hot summer (actually been pretty nice here in So Cal). Will let you know how progress goes. Until next time...Take it any way you can get it!
