Season’s Greetings and Happy Solstice to all my Blainreaders. No gigs this month but it's been pretty exciting for me because I just got a new computer and audio interface so now I can dive deeper into my guilty pleasure, electronic music. Stay tuned for some interesting sounds in future Blaincasts.
Many Blainreaders enjoyed last month's tour of my kitchen with Linda's stencil work throughout and now I'd like to share some other artwork that Linda has created since she was done with my kitchen. After finishing the kitchen she put those stencils back to work creating 30+ new pieces. Joel created a gallery on Flickr and several pieces have sold already. Linda doesn’t usually have anything left after one of her art shows. Check it out:
And as I mentioned earlier, Christmas came early for this old computer geek. After months and months of whining about my under-powered mac I finally bit the bullet and bought one of the new Macbook’s that just came out and it is a dream machine. Now I can load up as many tracks and layers in my music program and the guitar is much more responsive too. (update: I did manage to overload the CPU a couple of times...)
I documented the unboxing in this month’s Blaincast which you can view here. You can go directly to the unboxing.
