DrumFu – A hilariously cheesy but awesome drum solo by Bill Bruford

I just stumbled across this on YouTube and couldn’t stop laughing at how silly this actually was. At the same time, I loved it and really want a vintage Simmons kit now, haha!

Making Beats in Audacity with a Label Grid and Loops

This is a video made by request of José on Facebook. He asked “Hey. I use audacity but I don’t play drums or have anything to record drums. I wanted to record songs on audacity with midi drums but I don’t know how. Can you make a video on that, please? Stay cool!” Since Audacity doesn’t work with MIDI very well, I showed a work around by using a tempo track, label grid, and loops. Hopefully this will help Jose and others looking to make their own beats without drums in Audacity.

The new Simmons SD2000 is the first electronic drum kit I’ve ever actually wanted!

Despite not even being out yet, the YouTube video being overrun by angry trolls, this drum kit is the first electronic set I’ve actually wanted. Simmons came back into the e-drum market a decade or so ago and has mostly been focused on lower end kits until now.

A few things immediately caught my eye about this kit, the classic hexagon shaped pads, the mesh hitting surface, the classic Simmons sound banks, and lastly but most importantly, the ability to sample and import your own sounds into the kit!

I really want one of these things!

Psych is returning to USA Network for a feature length film!

Psych Movie

Today I was so happy to hear that one of my favorite shows to ever be on USA network, Psych, is coming back for a feature length movie this winter!

If somehow you don’t know, Psych is a goofy sidekick show with a fake psychic and his best friend that solve crimes along with his angry dad and local cops. I always liked Psych because of it’s lightness, humor, and just a fun show. They would often do parodies or tributes to other shows, like their legendary hat tip to Twin Peaks episode called “Dual Spires”, which reunited the TP cast before season 3.

“On Monday, USA announced plans with Universal Cable Productions (UCP) for Psych: The Movie, featuring fake psychic detective Shawn Spencer (James Roday) and his best friend, Burton “Gus” Guster (Dulé Hill). The team will reunite once again, returning to USA for the holidays, when the two-hour special premieres this December. Psych creator Steve Franks, who co-wrote the movie with Roday, is directing.

Lassiter (Timothy Omundson), Juliet (Maggie Lawson), Henry (Corbin Bernsen), and Chief Vick (Kirsten Nelson) will also return for the movie, which picks up three years after the series finale. The ambitious friends — along with some returning fan-favorite characters — come together during the holidays after a mystery assailant targets one of their own. A comedic thrill-ride follows, as the wild and unpredictable Psych team pursues the bad guys, justice … and, of course, food!”
