New Studio

I moved. I'm now living right by the highway in Yoyogi which is significantly quieter than my last apartment -- which was not by a highway. The new apartment has more space than the old one which has allowed me to make a dedicated studio room. I'm pretty psyched about the new studio but am still busy with new apartment stuff so I haven't really gotten around to recording anything new. I want get back to recording soon, but still have a bunch of things left to do. Things like:

  • build shelves
  • move possessions from floor to shelves
  • rearrange furniture
  • stand in line for Krispy Kreme doughnuts
  • install some wood screws in places where wood screws are needed but aren't already installed
  • finish SketchUp model of new apartment
  • eat Krispy Kreme doughnuts
  • give away some guitars
  • fix the soundproofing on my electric drums

I also have a lot of TV watching to do in the upcoming weeks, but I'm not sure when I'll finally be able to get around to actually using my new studio, but I'm sure that once I get in there, what comes out will be fairly awesome.

lmm movie on YouTube

I made a little fly-through movie of a model I made in SketchUp and put is on YouTube. The movie has a snappy lmm soundtrack and is fairly awesome.

You can view the movie either on YouTube or on the 3d page.

At the Open Mic

Josh Millard, or TV's MetaFilter's cortex, posted a demo of a song to MetaFilter Music that I really liked. I took Josh's demo and added drums, bass, guitar, and pedal steel. I've been looking for an excuse to try some recording with my new steel and Josh's song was it.

You can listen to or download the song from the songs page.
