The Temporary Death of Pro Tools

March 27th, 2011

What is better than a good software upgrade? Only this morning Pro Tools worked great and now, $250 dollars later, it works not at all! Woe, gnashing and more woe.

I say take it with aplomb. toujours gai toujours gai as says Mehitabel. Worked on new guitar smegma with Stevie Nations instead.

Meanwhile, in a nearby section of town, Jeff Kelly posts blistering live Green Pajamas tracks from 1998 at http://thegreenpajamas1.bandcamp.com/. Hide the animals and children. Let mollusks beware.

THE RESIDENTS @ NEUMOS

The Residents at Neumos

The Residents at Neumos

Saw The Residents for the first time last night. Nice outfits. For all their weirdness, it totally changed how I hear their music. They seem more human, less alien. Did not expect that.

Appointment with Destiny

In case you’ve been wondering what the Appointment with Destiny! will look like, this is it! Pretty sweet, eh?

Appointment with Destiny! COMPLETE

March 17th, 2011

Howie righteously points out I should say the following:

I am done making The Icons 2nd record in 25 years. Appointment with Destiny! is mastered and out to press. I think it rocks pretty damn well. I have been working on this for a year and shockingly still like it. You will too. April 12.

Hey – I’ve been busy. We are working on a record release party and several other ridiculous notions. More to follow.

Just remember. Appointment with Destiny! = TOTAL ROCK ACTION!

Good call, Howie.
