Music is the order of the day…

I just can’t seem to get up from my computer today.  I’m even draggin’ out old mp3 data cds to find stuff for my next burn project.  And I mean old!  Loop Guru, Astral Projection, Paul Romero.  I’ve recently made cds for a couple of my friends, just some mainstream vocal house and club mixes I thought they would like.  And I’ve decided, by request, to try something a little more trippy next time.  Whilst sorting thru some of this stuff, I’ve also been syncronizing my MP3 player, adding more playlists, and so on.  I have a Creative Zen Micro, the 5 Gig one, and I have never been happier to carry around my music.  This thing rocks!  I’ve never had a lick of trouble with it and transfering files from my computer has never been easier with the Real Player.  I use the Real Player for my universal music and video stuff.  I know a lot of folks prefer Windows Media Player, which is cool, but I guess I latched-on to Real pretty early-on in my computer development, and haven’t looked back since, even thru all the changes, updates, versions, etc..

I’ve got to get Lilah, my eldest daughter, to update her playlists.  We’ve found some Lauren Hill and The Fugees, DMX, E-40, to name a few, lately, and she has been dabbling into country music also.  Sheesh!  What a mixture!  And, of course, both of my daughters are into Reggae.  Old skool, ya know, “roots” stuff like Bob Marley and Jimmy Cliff.  We are an eclectic bunch around here, with my electronica and retro collections [I graduated in 1985, for God’s sake].  Can you say Kajagoogoo 10 times fast, boys and girls?

And, last, but not least, is my Nero burning software, that came with my burner.  It comes with Nero SoundTrax and Wave Editor.  So I can mix on my own, then burn to cd.  I just recently started fartin’ around with SoundTrax.  It’s awesome!  Just, plain awesome.

  1. hi. this is the beginning of my most recent post…i just thought you should see it…

    so to be honest, i started this blog as an anonymous way to get my thoughts out. however, based on the most recent comment posted — it’s not as anonymous as i thought. i give away a lot of information about myself based on the comment left (unless you are just a super inferer)…not surprising since i am a pretty open-book person. anyways, i wanted to thank you, if you are reading this, for your interest in my post, your feedback, and your honesty. it’s nice to know that even though i have my own views on the situation, you can kind of let me hear the other side of it — the mom’s point of view — and for that i thank you. i openly welcome you to continue reading my posts…even though they relaly are just for me to rant and rave…not necessarily for entertainment. i hope it will give you a little insight on what a teenage mind thinks like — how we feel, and that we are only human. we make mistakes….so don’t be too harsh on your daughters. they know when they have dissapointed you. they know they have the power to mess with your emotions and honestly they are just trying to have fun and get by in this crazy world. be easy on them, but don’t let them get away with stupid shit. it’s obvious you care and have thought about the other side as well…so props to youuu….
