Logic 8 Issues

January 12th, 2008 · 2 Comments ·

DAVID KRONEMYER: I recently spent an afternoon with a colleague assisting with a complicated audio mix in Logic 8. A lot of quadruple-tracked guitars going off everywhere, that sort of thing. We decided early on that it would be necessary to establish a very strict timing reference for the beats, if the song was to […]

Agamemnon and Abraham

January 5th, 2008 · No Comments ·

DAVID KRONEMYER: Ancient Greek civilization and that of the ancient Israelites are the templates for much of Western culture. Two of their patriarchs are Agamemnon and Abraham.

We went to 10:30 mass, together with the other lapsed Catholics (actually, Judy’s not all that lapsed, nor is her mom, but that’s another story; although, some of our brethren in attendance clearly qualify for that status, seeing as how their doppelgangers are […]

Sharon Tate and Natalie Wood

April 5th, 2007 · No Comments ·

DAVID KRONEMYER: I totally am into swingin’ chicks of the 60s. Two especially perfect iterations of the genre were Sharon Tate and Natalie Wood.

How I Made Another Million Dollars by Suing the San Diego Reader (with thanks to Carol Burnett)

December 9th, 2006 · No Comments ·

I demanded a retraction, which they dutifully published. Then I got an idea, which essentially was they weren’t entitled to the […]
