I'm still on Windows 7. I actually like it better than Windows 10. With a computer I want a tool, not a friend. And I find Win 7 is pretty streamlined while Win 10 has too much bloat. However, Win 7 has its limits. One thing it doesn't do to well, as far as I... Continue Reading →
https://soundcloud.com/earthpages/avanti I've been working on this for a while. The past few days it's been a mastering exercise, which I actually like more than composing. I tried a popular commercial demo (Ozone 8) for mastering but its presets never really made this sound right, and it was too resource heavy to be of any real... Continue Reading →
Toronto is growing faster than its transportation network can handle. You have to be a backroads wizard to get around, and even then you might get caught in traffic somewhere. This was taken the other day when I went down to Shuter Street just east of Yonge for a Sunday Mass at my fav. downtown... Continue Reading →

This was a challenging year for me as Ginger (not her real name) and I parted ways. But a lot of good came from it. And I'm happy now with the way things are. Seems like life puts you thru these phases and as much as we want stability and permanence, change is the name... Continue Reading →
Went out on my bike today with camera. This is where 16 innocent horses died by fire recently. I think it ironic that mankind posts signs warning about horse bites when it was mankind that ultimately killed them.
It's 2011 and I'm getting lousy at math. So how old am I? Born in '62. You figure it out. It doesn't really matter because I didn't hear this song until after 2011, when Ginger (not her real name) and I parted ways. I ordered some nice burgundy SONY headphones from Amazon and remember hearing... Continue Reading →
