    What the heck is this insect bite?

    I don't think I'd trust a doctor that gave you cream for a possible Tick bite with a bullseye. You need the immediate regimen of Doxy. My wife got misdiagnosed and now has Lyme for life. I tested positive for it as well. I have regular fatigue and brain fog but not nearly as bad as my wife...

    Hearing Yourself Sing

    I am horrible at that. There’s a couple of tunes I could pull off that I can think of but my brain typically can’t separate the two worlds and have a them work independently in sync. I don’t know how drummers do it.

    Hearing Yourself Sing

    transposing would be a good idea. The only rub it’s a Goo Goo Dolls song with a pesky oddball open C tuning. I thought about pitching down the guitars in Protools and laying it down then pitching up the vocal track but I really want to do this without cheating. I think the lessons and practice...

    Hearing Yourself Sing

    When I found out I had to sing a solo song in the Musical I was in I took lessons to coach me through it. It made a huge difference and luckily that song was in my range. I'd like to avoid using some type auto tune to help out with the tough notes but it may be unavoidable. I'm going to...

    Happy Memorial Day

    Yes. Thank you to all who served and who have sacrificed. Many of my relatives growing up had fortunately come home from WWII, Korea, Vietnam and had stories to tell. Only one that I know about who was in the Royal Airforce and shot down by the Luftwaffe.

    Hearing Yourself Sing

    I'm definitely no singer... I can get through stuff If I have to but cringe at hearing my own voice. I'm currently working on re recording a song Mrs. C and I both like for fun and I finally got the guitars laid down in a shape I can tolerate so It's getting to the dreaded point in the process...

    Went to my first MLB game in 18 years

    Nice... damn now that I think about it... I don't think i've been to a game since the Met game I went to in 86. I may have gone to a Tampa Bay Devil Rays game in the 90s but not sure ... must not have made an impression.

    Not a huge RHCP fan but I love John Frusciante as a player. Strictly Platonic though.

    I’m the same way and I agree. Which is why I was very reluctant to get the pod go. But it’s stupid easy for me. I have a couple of small tube amps when I want but having the Pod Go is really handy too.

    I like pedals... if I don't want to hear them in my signal I turn them off. to each his own. I also have a Line 6 Pod Go. For jamming at 6am while working from home its pretty awesome.

    The storm runner is fast too. Said goodbye to my family. Went right on the path to get on line and came around the bushes on the left to rejoin them LOL. Mrs. Thought I chickened out or travelled through time. We live nearby so to every year. I won’t ever go on that wild mouse ride again. My...

    Worst amusement park experience

    Losing my kid for about 5 minutes at Disney Hollywood studios. We were on line for pics with Chewbacca with the family and my wife told me to go take them to a ride with the fast pass while she waited with the little ones because it was a long line. We were exiting the area which had actual...

    Ever met a famous person before?

    The first audio post job I had in NYC I was covering the phones so the receptionist could take a break. In walks Sigourney Weaver for her ADR session. I welcomed her and introduced myself. She introduced herself. "Nice to meet you , I'm Sigourney". The Hi I'm Sigourney was sort of funny to...
