    Emu e5000 Ultra Sampler For Sale! (Tampa Bay)

    Posted on December 8th, 2010

    I’m trying to sell my Emu e5000 Ultra Sampler in the Tampa Bay area with sample discs for $199! It’s in perfect working condition and has always been kept in a smoke free studio! It has a 12GB internal hard drive (upgraded), 128MB RAM (upgraded), a Glyph SCSI CD-ROM drive and comes with 15 sample discs!

    It has amazing filters, routing and patching capabilities. I helped put together a list of the sources and destinations for the routing capabilities here.

    I hope someone locally will purchase this, I would hate to have to put it up on Ebay (and charge for shipping).

    Sold, thanks Chris!

    Blue Distortion: Unce

    Posted on November 22nd, 2010

    Blue Distortion Podcast

    First tune to start of the podcast. Welcome back.

    This song started as a joke to make a fist-pumping, happy house track. Unce is Un (kick) and ce (hi-hat) to emphasize a 4/4 house beat. Also know as throat techno. I was going to do a series of these songs at some point with just vocal samples, maybe soon.

    Released on He Thinks He Is Peoples in 2010.

    A Website Update Finally? For Whom?

    Posted on November 4th, 2010

    This thing follows me everywhere.

    The galvanized technophile clicks publish on his latest composition, which is certain to bring internet stardom, anonymous donations and hopefully free cookies. He sits only illuminated by the blue glow of the monitor, anticipating the onslaught of page views. They trickle like Reaganomics. As time goes on, as it’s known to do, enthusiasm begins to wane. His writings become less out of habit and more out of necessity. Then to begrudgingly avoid neglect.

    His creativity machine grinds to a halt like a factory shutdown. He carefully constructs the inevitable apology to his 3 readers. The blogging software goes out of date. Comment spam starts to take over. He has failed at the internet and regrettably joins Facebook.

    Personal websites and blogs not entangled by the tentacles of the large social media monsters are declining. If you want to just share links or photos with friends, there are specific social media services for it. Seems a bit redundant to post a link to a photograph on Facebook when you could just post the photo itself. I have observed the interesting balance, and now, tipping point between social media and personal websites over the last few years.
