Back From the Grave...

Whoa, it's been a while. I went back to school last semester and I'm still working 40+ hours a week, but a lack of time is not the only reason I have not been around: I simply lost interest. I know my lack of interest in planting myself in front of the computer has hit an all-time high when I even neglect Flickr. I noticed a lot of people I know on here who use to post on a regular basis seem to have disappeared. (I'm not gonna name names!) However, I have been reading a lot more lately, and I'm still loving my Nintendo DS. Oh, I sold my house last November at a loss, but I'm ecstatic that I unloaded that financial burden. I was on the verge of tears thinking I would have to pay another winters worth of gas bills for a house I wasn't living in. The irony is that the first realtor I had for over a year (who didn't do shit) was the same realtor who brought the buyer in after I got rid of him and signed with a different company at a higher commission. So, I hate/love him.

I finally got a turntable hooked up to the computer and I've gradually been transferring my vinyl. It's so easy! After some messing around with Audacity, I decided to leave most of the cracks and pops alone. Every time I zoom in on a track and get rid of them, I can notice a drop. Does anybody have any Audacity tips?

The first LPs I just had to transfer was my Marvelettes LPs, mainly their last LP. I wasn't too into it when I bought a few years ago because it so mellow, but it's been growing on me, especially this track. The album was actually suppose to be a solo album for Wanda, but Motown didn't think a Wanda solo album would sell. So, they named it The Return of the Marvelettes, and it still didn't sell well. Wanda is the only actual Marvelette on the album (the Motown house backing vocal group The Andantes back Wanda up.) Look at the cover and the mysterious, faceless gals next to Wanda. I call it yet another Motown shenanigan, but regardless, it's a pretty rad cover.

And does anyone here need "one more step in personal home security system and Homeland Security"?

What a usful product! You can actually protect yourself during an attack of weapons of mass destruction and cook popcorn at the SAME TIME PEOPLE. This is way more usful Tom Ridge's duct tape and plastic over the windows plan. (discovered at

And in case you didn't know it, this is the best entrance to a musical performance EVER:

Could Big Mama be any more casual? I love how it seems that she walked right off the street, and the fact she starts singing before she's at the mic. I'm in awe.
