I managed to catch my friend GW playing keys for the group Deathline International. They had a gig last night at the Voodoo Lounge in San Jose, which isn’t too far away, so after missing previous opportunities, I finally saw them perform. GW has talked about the group for ages, but I […]
The 121st Convention of the Audio Engineering Society met at the Moscone Center in San Francisco last week, and I managed to make it in to check out a few of the lectures and see all of the goodies. I love gear, and have way more than i need, so normally, i’m not overwhelmed […]

I took a little trip today to visit my friend, Rich who works at Electronic Arts for a game team that developed the upcoming James Bond title. The game is done and is getting ready for X-mas release, so he’s got a bit of downtime to recover from the months of work.
