Well, it is turkey day and snowing again. Seattle has responded to frozen streets with its usual shutdown, but worry not you – at GMR we are still hard at work preparing several frozen treats for your upcoming holiday pleasure.

Snow snow snow. Whew.

Excellent review today of the PJs Red, Red Rose today in Pop Matters!

Only a week to get the GMR X-mas thang ready to rock. We will have some tasty and unique gems for you once again this year.

Well, Pro Tools seems to be happy at last and I got some Icons tunes mixed. Plenty of work n stuff for the X-mas AotM this week, plus mastering Jeff Kelly’s new Goblin Market album. Yowsah!

Okay, it’s 7:00am and I going to spend this glorious day mixing The Icons mostly. In theory I have got Pro Tools working after 2-3 weeks of wrasslin’ and replacin’, rebootin’, you get the idea. In the techno-irony of the week, the day that I get Pro Tools 8.0.4cs2 to work, they announce … Pro Tools 9!

Hmm … think I might wait a month or two while they fix all the yet-to-be-discovered bugs in the next exciting iteration.

I may take a break later to watch My Huskies dominate the hapless Oregon Ducks. We’ll see.

A very nice review of The IconsMasters of Disaster in The Big Takeover.

Speaking of those darn Icons, I think the Pro Tools Monster may be whipped back into shape and I may be able to get back to mixing that beautiful thing.

Finally, The Hitmen’s SMASHFACE is now available from CDBaby.

It is time for The Hitmen once again. If you missed them the first time around and have been kicking yourself ever since, stop kicking. SMASHFACE is streaming live this very minute and you can buy it too! Dig it baby.
