It’s a crisp September morning, and I’m currently working on finishing a book for Tantor Media, then going to be brainstorming some other ideas that I have for the Goettl Voices biz and see if they’re worthy. Still kicking around the podcast idea, and I think I finally found something that I like that fits my “brand”, so to speak. More on that in future posts.
A week ago, saw the news that Norm MacDonald died. Oof. That was a punch to the gut. This guy was one of my favorite comedians, I listened to his podcast religiously, and quoted him endlessly. Still do. Couldn’t believe he kept his illness secret, but completely understandable. Going to miss his take on, well, anything. Always enjoyed his asides, like when someone would be talking about a reprehensible character, then you’d just hear Norm in the background say “seemed like a nice guy…”.
Been playing around with the RX8 Advanced DAW–man, this thing is magic. I thought the standard did magical things, but this…this is something else. As you all know, I love playing around with recording software, and seeing what I can get it to do. Going to try to take some of those positively ancient sounding wax cylinder recordings, and see if I can work any magic on it. I’m guessing that this is something that AI will be really good at in the future, but for now, this is just fun to try. Recording nerd exercises, if you will.
Newest addiction: Rocketbooks. Those things are so darn handy, it’s insane. Been using them to plan out stuff. I’m not a paid sponsor or anything, but these things are incredibly useful. You can write on the pages, upload them to your email, google drive, one note, etc., and then wipe ’em clean with a wet cloth.
Ok, that’s all I’ve got for now, stay tuned for further developments…
