What is Your First Memory & What Age Where You? Can you remember your earliest memory as a child? And approximately what age you were?
I used to ask people this quite a bit and was amazed by how far back some people could remember.
I'm asking it again today, here, due to Haruki Murakami's book "1Q84" where the protagonist goes around asking everyone he meets what their first memory was. The author was aptly reminded to me by one of +Thomas Morffew's earlier posts.
Please, if this memory was something harrowing then I recommend NOT sharing it on such a public forum. I'm not being rude. Its just, some things are best not discussed with strangers. Close friends & family would be a much better option.
Testing the theory which says the equation for maximum viral-icity (MV) is
MV = ((cG + Q) ^ b)/R
where - cG = confirmed genius - Q = quotation; smarter the better; needs explaining to others => best of all - b = buns (real or painted on vase). - R = Relativity (to computers/internet/geekology) Read post in Google+
Please, please, please... please update your profile pic if you've left it just as the default blue thingy.
I'm chuffed to bits that folk circle me but it gets so impersonal to see my 'added to' emails and 40 - 50% of the profile pics are blueheads.
I know some folk are concerned over privacy, are camera-shy or feel they don't look good in pictures.. Well take a look at my profile pic!!! Hairy potato head might sum me up ;) The perfect face for radio ;;)
So c'mon - do one thing today and update your profile pic for me :)
EDIT: As +Eileen O'Duffy pointed out in the comments-- this seems to be a bug with the email notifications not showing the profile pic. I'm seeing only 10% of the 'blueheads' are using the default pic... the remainder have personalized pics. My mistake Read post in Google+
Great-great grandpa Dunne was a gentleman & a scholar, running the numbers, and the rackets on the side. He did the Big Con up in Indiana for the mobsters, grifting the old-timey widows out of their millions so had to dress smart.
Happy 130th Birthday to James Joyce - Feb 2nd 2012
For those here in Ireland, the Irish Times have a supplement to celebrate his life & literary work. And for those who've not read his books... Start with Dubliners before attempting climbing the north face of Ulysses ;§)>
BRILLIANT evening at the +Propellerhead Producer Conference Dublin yesterday. Well worth getting along to these.
Props to Gary Bromham and James Bernard for some great presentations.
Highlights for me:
- JB's One block approach to tunes in Reason - JB's multiple hat approach to creation/mix/mastering - JB's whistle-stop tour of Reason 6.5... Polar is a standout and can't wait to get my mitts on EtchRed
- GB's mixing overview incl (a) start a mix with master bus comp enabled (b) using racks for grouping visually instruments/fx (c) the proprogressive Q (d) dup'ing bass to give the hi end some scream/UN16 (e) master bus config base setting recommendations - GB's mastering setup with dual compressors
.. have a notebook full of great suggestions ready to start mangling my tunes to the max ;c)
Don't think it was recorded for uploading, but if possible it'd be great if the London show could be recorded as the advise was absolute gold!
