Desktop Google Music Player For Linux!

I have a ton of music in Google’s music service, my own uploads, plus I’m a subscriber. But I always hated having to open a web browser to access my collection, which is not only slow, but eats up tons of CPU on my system.

Thankfully a crafty 20 year old developer from Australia made a sweet desktop player for linux. I’m running the Debian version on my Ubuntu 16.04 system and it’s working great!

Check it out here!

Twin Peaks Unraveled: Dream of Time & Space

This is absolutely excellent. I totally agree PJG’s observations. Much of what he’s talking about was also theorized in a very solid book by John Keel called The 8th Tower, Ultraterestrials and the Superspectrum, which was published in the 1970s.

I keep telling people to read it to have a more solid understanding of TP. A lot of the stuff PJG is saying is right on par with what Keel was saying about entities changing vibrational frequencies to move,or suddenly seem to “appear” in our reality. I really love these concepts. Great vid!

A Very Young Stewart Copeland Talks Drums

I just ran across this vid and thought I’d share. I always love Stewart’s drumming, but also his amazing energy and enthusiasm makes me particularly fond of him. On this vid he talks a bit about his drum kit and some of the cool delays and fx he was using at the time. He’s a true talent and very interesting guy.

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!
