Bloggery Update

I know it has been a while and as much as posting has been a goal on my mind, the sheer process of rebuilding my post-tour life has been fully encompassing. That is not to say that I do not get to venture out and going down south a few hours to say hello to Muse crew was super cool.

Hanging with MC, Muse sound engineer. He mixes a great sound and he is doing some cool stuff. He, like myself, had some issues with diving into digital boards and and after testing the best of the best, went back to analog. Unlike me, he has a much more complex show to mix so he set up a midi controller footswitch tied into the console with all the song names and scene changes on it and can step through settings, not unlike a digital board.

One of the scenes:

And of course some Rat swag for all. Paul, their production manager made the best choice right off the bat!

Oh, and Muse is great music, a great show and all good.

**** Other Stuff of interest ****

This is a 1976 picture of a 20,000 watt home stereo sent to me by Craig O. Oh my, hit the link if you want to read more:

And check out this Saturday Night Live clip from when Foo Fighters were on SNL. So honored and how cool is it that Dave Grohl rocks the Rat Sweatshirt, and the video clip is really funny.

The playing catch up with a smile,

Dave Rat

Hey Dave, What kind of board (make, model) is he using? Looks really cool! ;-)

Dave Rat on :

That would be a Midas XL4

Johnny Garlick on :

yes! A new post from the man himself. Nice inside into the analog vs digital issue, Midas consoles DO feature snapshot recall well, argument won for analog. (even though snapshots are for broadway shows, and little girls) RHCP would look cool in the pre/post leds on the Heritage 3000. Clearly a job for lampi though.

MKB on :

Wow. Irvine

Rachelle on :

Never a dull moment! Cool Muse consol ... The foo's vid doesn't work - it says it is temporarily down. But man every time I see Dave G on tv he is wearing rat stuff ... so cool. There was an interview last weekend from the v fest and he was all decked out and also in a nirvana mtv vid I have too. I want a rat hoodie - it is so cold! - do you sell them?

Monique on :

I actually watched this the night it aired and I laughed so hard at the Foos. "Double Punched!" I didn't notice the rat sweatshirt though! Way cool! :) Such nice, young boys, those Fighters of Foo. ;)
