Current Music Happenings

I’m Currently back with Maiden Killers, ( Iron Maiden Tribute to the Deanno Years )

Unit 57 ( Rock Covers )
Zero the Hero ( Original Metal )

I have finally acquired my Warwick 2008 Thumb Bolt on Wide Neck. (Brand New) Distributor back stockIMG 0411
This Bass is amazing. I wanted to get a neck through version, but after playing this bolt on, and hearing the sustain it had, and the price, I had to pull the trigger on it.

Practice Practice.. I’m learning the “thumb as a pick” technique, this is causing new blister and callus locations on the thumb. Here is an Example.

Korn / Slipknot

My cousin “`Robert“` was able to get a few Tickets for the Korn Slipknot show here in San Antonio on Sun. Nov 2, 2014 7:00 PM Looking forward to the show.

Update November 3, 2014,

I Went to the show last night, The bands seemed to do a great job. Where we were sitting the sound for Korn was good. The bass drum was a bit over bearing the bass. The Slipknot show was (sound wise) very disappointing. The First 20 min one could hardly hear the singer. The floor and upper tom’s were louder than the bass drum, and it seemed that the cymbals were stage volume only, not seeming to come through the PA at all. I thoroughly enjoyed the stage show. They were very engaged with the crowd and would pump up the audience at even the slightest Lull. Around the 9th song the vocal volume was fixed and the guitar leads were finally dicernable. Over all I enjoyed the eve.

I have to call out Roberts truck, The Longhorn edition Ram. More buttons than I’ve seen in Cadillac. One could argue too many, and that much more to go wrong, But I liked it.

Life Update

Mom had come down for the holidays and to visit, as well as soak up the good weather of winter in south Texas. We Just took her to the airport and she’s not looking forward to the cold weather of the northwest Indiana Chicago Area.

Work is good. Rackspace is a really good place to work.. they don’t just say that. Forbes says it, and so do I. I have never worked for a place where I have no interest in keeping my options open.. or keeping my eye on the Job boards. I’ve actually drank the Kool-aid and am loving my Job.

We took Jazz to an Internal medicine Vet to look at his seizure records and dosage etc, due to his seizures becoming more frequent. We’re upping the dosage of Zonsimide and the potassium bromide. Hopefully This will have a good affect.

We have moved to a new (to us) house in San Antonio. It’s smaller, only 2 bedrooms and we’re going to have to get rid of even More stuff but With Just nana, I and the Critters we don’t really need more room.

More Later..

ZNC vs IRSSI Proxy

I have been using IRSSI and it’s proxy feature to keep a running connection to freenode. While I play road warrior with the laptop. With a bit of down time over the holidays I came across ZNC. While not a new project it is new to me. I found that it’s features set and project focus is what I was trying to have IRSSI do for me. This IRC bouncer they call it is quite mature now and has many module for expansion.. check it out at http://wiki.znc.in/ZNC
