Music Geekery

Feeling much better today — thank the gods for the thunderstorms that released some of the pressure last night. Of course, now I have a backlog of Adamant stuff that I need to get done…which means that I didn’t get anything out to my writing group for this week’s meeting. It also means that I haven’t had the time to play with my new music-production toy.

I picked up a copy of Propellerhead Software’s Reason 3.0. Holy crap is this cool. I can’t wait to start using it.

Geekery behind the cut


Steven Bradbury, the acting Deputy Attorney General, and head of the Justice Department’s office of legal counsel, testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee yesterday.

He was questioned by Senator Patrick Leahy (D-VT) about the President’s bizarre interpretation of the Supreme Court’s ruling on the Hamdan case (Bush has said that it upholds his position on Guantanimo, when in fact it does not).

Watch the exchange here. (Quicktime movie)

The terrifying thing? Check the transcript:

LEAHY: Was the President right or was he wrong?

BRADBURY: The President is always right.

That is the statement from the fucking HEAD of the Justice Department’s office of legal counsel. That the President is always right.

But hey — point out that we appear to be living in a fascist dictatorship and you’re the moonbat, right?

Goddamn Livejournal…..

After last night’s thunderstorms, I wake up feeling great, with no pain, and start my day…..

…only to have Livejournal email me about a comment that was posted almost two months ago. I had already seen the comment, but the email notification just got here, and so did nothing more than to remind me of that whole ugly situation.

Nothing quite like a kick in the stomach to start your day.
