  1. She ain't gonna like living in that! Better build yourself a dog house while you're at it.
  2. Yeah, I wouldn't eat it too often. There's a big reason I had high cholesterol in my early 30's.
  3. Hard fried on a bed of hash browns with a sausage patty, onions, shredded cheddar cheese and all covered with chili. Then topped with a nice helping of Tabasco. Slinger-style.
  4. Horribly executed on my part. No, Rob didn't post it was just me noticing another rob ash. I was meaning it as a Patty this is Peggy. Peggy this is Patty. Patty this is Rob Ash. Rob Ash this is Rob Ash. Sorry for the confusion. Patty, Sorry for any confusion. At least now you know you can ignore most of my comments.
  5. I have to say I do see it, in my mind. The quick is about 4 or 5 or 6 years ago I personally got disgusted with the internet. That's after spending a life time of loving technology. First with the atari then my first Texas Instruments computer in 1981 and never looked back. Always wanting and loving the next new thing. There are a lot of reasons to like the internet and what it does, but there are also a lot of reasons to dislike it. For me, the reasons not to like it outweigh the good. It's a "humanity" thing. The writing is on the wall of where we are headed. Automation continues to swallow jobs. There is talk of a "universal wage" (i.e. welfare) to help. The techies in charge say, 'nah' new jobs will just open up. But considering the main feature of tech is to "do more with less" I don't know what those jobs would be, neither do they. I have hope it won't be as bad as it could be but I'm not sure that's the case. And automation is just a small slice of the "trouble pie." At some point people will have to ask just how much do they want to be controlled by technology. Do we all really need chips in our bodies to open doors at the office like they currently do in some countries? The current "fad topic" of fake news has been present on the net for many, many years. It's not a new thing. It's not a good thing, yet people still flock to Facebook to read their news. Or at least to read the news that's slanted the way they want to hear it. So I'm going to stick to my theory of the day when people wake up to it all. The day people really get disgusted and realize that in the end, it's not worth it. Life is better without it. Many things need to be done. But I could see a window of 4-5 years of a sort of anti-internet/anti-tech Hippie-like movement. Especially with the rise of the legalization of pot. With hopes that people chill the f*ck out and lose their boners over technology. I know technology isn't going away, but the ways it's being used need to change. I could just chalk it up to being an old codger, but considering my love to technology throughout my lifetime, that's simply not it.
  6. Hey Randy, 

     

    Thanks for your kind words on 'Drowsy..'. I get what you mean by a smoother delivery, and I'll work on it. 

     

    I hope you're okay, I'm glad to say I'm okay. 

     

    Have a good day

      Glad to hear you're doing good. I'm doing good too. I'd say about 99% of Drowsy has awesome deliver. Just mainly that one spot. I think if everything else didn't sound so damn smooth, that wouldn't have stuck out at all to me.

       

      Talk to you later,

      Randy

  7. I still like this a lot. I don't really have anything to offer. I do think in spots it seems a couple words could be left out, allowing for a slightly smoother deliver (mainly "into it's magic this time") but really I'm not sure how necessary it would be. I enjoyed it regardless. Glad to see you back.
  8. Welcome Patty.
  9. I don't believe Mac users have left the Mac. Some sure, but I know a lot of designers and none of them have left the Mac. Adobe on the other hand. Since they went subscription model more and more people have left that. It's taken a while for newer software to take the place of InDesign, Illustrator, Photoshop (although Photoshop has always had good competition.) When they went subscription, I purchased the newest versions they had and have been running them since. I figure to get another couple years before needing to upgrade. When we do, we will no longer be using Adobe, other than maybe Adobe Acrobat Pro unless there's an alternate I like. There are currently 2 other software providers I'm looking at. Just like Aldus Freehand, Coral Draw and Quark, Adobe too will fall. But I'd gather they'll drop the subscription service first as a last gasp effort. It's funny what's become of Mac. Windows was an obvious, but not as good, take on the Apple OS. But like you said, other than the virus' PCs are susceptible to, they're very comparable. Although I've heard a lot of bad things about Windows 10, not sure how the actual system itself is. But yes, since Jobs left, Macs been in decline. You can't just replace the vision of a genius with someone good. I do just wish he would have died BEFORE he came out with the iPhone. I'll let you know how the Cakewalk/Garageband comparison goes. The thing for me is I've never once since I've started recording thought to myself, "I wish Garageband offered more." Every time I look for something I need, I find it.
  10. I experience just that scenario every time I play my old records. On the first song it sounds pretty cruddy, but by song two I don't really notice.
  11. I've heard comments about Cakewalk for years. I cannot wait to download this to compare to Garageband. My initial instinct would be it would be a step down. We shall see. Thanks for the tip.
  12. I've thought about it many times and looked into it but I've never went any further. I do agree with both you and Steve above. The time is right yes, but just being "trans" may not be enough. It reminds me of that heavy metal band Anvil they made the movie out of. They started something but were left in the dust by those that jumped aboard because those that did, had better music. Now, I'm not saying your music isn't "up to snuff" so to speak as I don't know. Just something to consider when working on material. Good luck with it.

  15. I'm not sure if you're going to keep it either?!?!
