It’s a wonderful Tuesday here in Eau Claire, the fall here is always excellent–when we get to enjoy it. The past few years, we’ve had summer, 2 weeks of fall weather, then winter. Prefer a longer fall and a shorter winter, but alas, things are what they are.
Funny thing was, I was a huge fan of summer. Was. After spending 2 years in Tempe, AZ, I learned that there’s only so much warm weather I could take, and I had enough. When it hit triple digits in October, I was learning the hard way that hot weather isn’t really my thing at all. The Mrs. and I moved back to WI in 2012, and from that point forward, I was forever grateful for the Midwestern weather. Be careful what you wish for, I suppose.
Finished with a few projects last week, now looking forward to what the 4th quarter of the year will bring. Audiobooks have been pretty interesting this year, with the variety of titles I’ve been lucky enough to narrate. Still waiting on a call from Stephen King or Walter Isaacson, but nothing on my voicemail yet.
For the audio production nerd in me, RX9 is coming out shortly–what this means in layman’s terms is I have more digital toys to play with. It essentially makes everything sound awesome after I record it. You don’t think I sound this great on my own, do you? But, in all seriousness, it’s a brilliant piece of software, and I’m looking forward to playing with it. Might actually get to work on those old cassettes from when I was a young producer at heart.
Been reaching out to various Presidential museums and libraries to see if they’re in need of my services. They’re all interesting characters (in my opinion, there isn’t a single BORING prez, including Millard Fillmore), and anyone who knows me knows how passionate I am about American Presidents and everything about them. The sad thing I’ve found out is there are a few that don’t really have an online or brick and mortar footprint. I know there’s not a ton of people screaming for a Franklin Pierce museum or Zachary Taylor Library, but there are so many stories to tell about how these (for now) guys got here, and how they still affect today’s news.
On that note, time for me to stick my nose into one of my Presidential history books.
