Stevie B's

I just got back from picking up some acoustic guitar strings from a place called Stevie B’s, which is downtown (sort of) here in Saint Petersburg. I kinda liked the place. It’s a small local shop, although they have another store in Clearwater. It reminded me a lot of the old Appletree Music in Shelby,… Continue reading Stevie B's

Finis!

I’m going to brush my teeth and go to bed. I was sort of cruising e-mail and MySpace for reaction to This Old Dawg, which I posted on MySpace, Bandmix and JamWave today. Yes, I finally wrestled the song to the ground today and mastered it. It has some rough spots and I’m not entirely… Continue reading Finis!

Vocals Done

About to head for bed, I think. It’s been an interesting day. I finalized the vocals for This Old Dawg. Mostly because I’ve done all that I’m going to do, and I consider the damned thing done. I recorded four vocal tracks today and was working on the fifth when my voice went out. I… Continue reading Vocals Done

Wic 1 – osCommerce 0

I just edited the index page on Victoria’s Floozees Doozees web site. Well, on the osCommerce program that I’ve installed there. The general idea is that Victoria can turn the floozeesdoozees.com domain into a full-fledged Internet store. Don’t bother going there just yet. Right now going to floozeesdoozees.com will only see you forwarded to Victoria’s… Continue reading Wic 1 – osCommerce 0

Dominionists and Pulpit Politics

I just came across an excellent article by Mel Seesholtz on a web site called Online Journal. The article examines how the Religious Right is gearing up for another political season by establishing ways and means of achieving political means through religious ideology (not that this is anything more), sometimes using an organization called the… Continue reading Dominionists and Pulpit Politics

Almost Finished

I just finished the music on This Old Dawg. Which sort of surprised me.  I expected to record at least one more guitar part. Possibly two. But when I was listening to the playback, it sounded damned good. I just didn’t see why it needed anything else. Recording this song has been a learning experience… Continue reading Almost Finished

Mazdapalooza

I figure an update is in order. We just got back from the car show. For the record, it was called Mazdapalooza, and was held in the parking lot at Quaker Steak and Lube in Clearwater. There were a lot of cars, and a lot of people, there. It started raining just before we got… Continue reading Mazdapalooza

It's A Mazda Thang

About to take a shower. We’ll soon be going to a car show called Mazdapalooza. Katie has entered her car, which she’s put in a whole hell of a lot of work on. Being the old curmudgeon that I am, my first thought was “how much do you get if you win?” But I don’t… Continue reading It's A Mazda Thang

"This Old Dawg" Lyrics

I had to suspend recording last night because my fingers were too sore to play the lead parts that I need to lay down. Geez. You’d think I hadn’t really played in eight years or something. Anyway, I decided to start working on the lyrics. There are six verses in the song, and I only… Continue reading "This Old Dawg" Lyrics

This Old Dawg (Yet Again)

I’d intended to work on what I’d recorded for This Old Dawg today, but wound up taking a different tack. One I didn’t expect or plan. Simply put, I started over from scratch. The drum track on the previous version was a little off, and I didn’t think I could fix it. Rather than bang… Continue reading This Old Dawg (Yet Again)
