Analog is Awesome!

I'm spending a little time tightening up my internal clock, playing along with the awesomely fun Korg Volca Beats analog drum machine. I just picked this up yesterday and have been tinkering with non stop. So funnn!!!

Great video! I'm pretty new to synth, just bought a Novation Bass Station II and am fully addicted to analog and playing with knobs- so forgive me if this is a novice question. 

Is what you're doing just the kind of radness one would expect from linking two monosynths together, like any two random great synths, or is this particularly awesome because of some way that the the two Brutes work together that most other synth wouldn't do?

From 48:20 to 52:30 is straight real talkin truth. Thomas drops some serious knowledge that so many artists miss. Doesn't matter how hard it was, it only matter how good it sounds- a truth that can be applied to any art form. 

And the next part is great too. He's all, "I don't know this song, so I might mess it up." Then completely aces it.

Unbelievalbe. This is real music.

Snarky Puppy, recorded and filmed for a live DVD, no overdubs, no studio tricks. Just real music played by masters. And Cory Henry absolutely destroys his keyboard. 

Some of it is pretty out there, but man these cats are good!

Solid Gold

Super fun times over the weekend shooting my friend Scott Turpin on the steep final pitch of of Solid Gold (5.12a). Always fun to hang on a rope in the middle of space, a few hundred feet of the ground, and trying not to spin in circles so you can shoot a photo or two.

Got one!

It never ceases to amaze me how layout can affect an image.

Sometimes a great image looks terrible in a layout; and sometimes one that's boring on its own, is perfect with some words in it.

I just watched my least favorite image from a set quickly become my top choice once it got dropped in layout.

So always remember to shoot some options that are less busy, and even bordering on too empty, because they might end up being just what the layout needs.

This is kind of fantastic. 

And I think it might legitimately be the first I've ever watched a whole YouTube pre-roll ad, and not just skipped it as soon as I can.

“We surrounded him with a combustible mix of rival gangs and made sure that he was consumed by a round-the-clock sense of terror that the slightest misstep on his part could result in a sharpened piece of scrap metal being shoved into his neck, and yet he still leaves this facility with the same criminal thoughts and violent mindset as before? I’m truly at a loss for how this could have happened.” Gunderson then noted his additional confusion at how the man’s criminal record and the social stigma of his prison sentence had somehow failed to land him a steady job immediately upon his release.
WOODBOURNE, NY—Reportedly left dumbfounded by the news that recent parolee Terry Raney had been reincarcerated on charges of assault and battery, officials at Woodbourne Correctional Facility struggled Tuesday to make sense of how the prisoner had n...

Ironic ..
(Noting it's also from the Onion)

It fails to define the offense this "fine young lad" committed to land him in that "terrible, non-nurturing" environment.

Yes our prison system fails to rehabilitate daily but I don't like how stories like these portray the criminal who's suffering in prison as the victim.

It's prison... Don't want to go there? Don't be a menace to civilized society..
Yes there are tons of examples of injustice and wrongful imprisonment but that's not a reason to paint the "symbolic guilty prisoner" as the victim.

The main point this "tongue-in-cheek" onion piece was trying to make is our prison system does a horrible job converting criminals into active, and productive members of society.
Nothing ground breaking..

Now, to focus on the root of how that individual became a criminal, and to offer services to those identified as "in need"; that would be interesting.
