An Exciting Ibanez Prestige

If only money grew on trees in the backyard. If I had more money around Christmas time I would love to purchase this ibanez prestige, check it out at MusiciansFriend.com that I stumbled upon today. My nephew has been wanting an electric guitar for the past couple of years for Christmas, this year I would love to see his dream come true.

Today’s Robotic Vocoder-ized Vocals

Spent some time online on the well known Guitar Center website the other night. I always find the coolest musical instruments and other music related products there that helps me get an idea of things that I can use for the numerous and never ending gifts that are needed to be given all year round.

I had never heard of “Auto-Tune” at first glance I assumed it was something that helped you tune your instrument but I quickly learned that it isn’t that at all. The first well known use of this Auto-Tune for vocals was when Cher belted out her famous song “Believe” which was recorded and released back in 1998. Something we would listen to on a record player much like the one you can find at http://www.guitarcenter.com/Crosley/Cruiser-Record-Player.gc.

Check out this video from YouTube of Cher’s well received  song “Believe” where you can hear for yourself how this turns a “normal” voice sound like robotic vocoder-ized vocals which has become all the rage in the hip-hop and rap music that is so popular these days.

Man I just love YouTube!

The Marching Band

It seems like there are still plenty of marching band products out there that are made by Tama. I remember when I did a short stint in our Junior High School Marching Band, Tama was a brand that we heard about and used a lot.

I am currently looking for a decently priced sound activated lights to purchase for my cousin Rachael for 15th Birthday. March is right around the corner and will be here in a blink of an eye. She is a Freshman in their local high school and it looks like she is totally into it and I would like to help nurture that aspect of her life, if and when possible.

a good deal

An Affordable Chauvet Color Bank 4-Color Sound Activated Light

It’s amazing all of the goodies that you can find online for musicians these days. I could spend hours and hours looking at them all, so many of them I really haven’t a clue as to what they are much less how to use them! Makes me feel old saying that, sigh…

D.I.V.O.R.C.E.

Are you familiar with the hit television show Divorce Court’s, Judge Lynn Toler? I recently discovered that  is Judge Toler is also a writer and has written a good amount about both marriage and divorce, something that I would think she knows a lot about. In a recent magazine article, she has written about four particular signs that a marriage has hit the skids. I thought it was pretty interesting information for people to look out for.

  1. When the couple begins to live “around” one another rather than “with” one another. They have become completely disengaged from each other.
  2. There never seem to be small issues. Every little argument leads to an all out war.
  3. Arguments are not about issues anymore, all disagreements seem to end in personal attacks.
  4. One or the other “checked out.” When their life is lived elsewhere and their sense of satisfaction comes exclusively from things outside the marriage, which could be a mistress, their job or even a video game, it’s time to wave the white flag.

It’s a well-known fact that they make it way too easy to get married these days and then turn around and make it nearly impossible to get out of that marriage. These days the Internet is a very valuable tool for folks that are experiencing any sign that their marriage has hit the skids. There is a ton on information about divorce as well as a ton of lawyers out there, many that can be found online, that can help you during your time of marriage crisis.

My good friend Penny had to find a Lewisville divorce lawyer last year in which she turned to the Internet and Googled “Dallas family law” in a matter of minutes she came up with all she needed to know about the Plano divorce attorney that she ended up hiring and couldn’t be happier with the whole staff and the whole process that she needed help with. She is a much happier person now that all that is over and done with. We chat on Facebook at least once a week since she lives all the way down in Texas and neither one of us has the time or the money for such a trip that would take at least 2 days to complete, possibly 3 days, you never can tell when it involves Penny.
