Microphone stands for sensitive microphones

When Alicia asked me for a recommendation for a microphone stand that would work well for her sensitive microphones, I headed online to do a little bit of research on the subject. I have to admit (to you) that I really did not know the answer right away! Of course, I did not want to admit that to Alicia! I like to let her think I’m a wealth of information! It wasn’t very long before I had the answer for her, and recommended she look into getting an atlas ms25 stand. The reviews I read indicate that will do the job, and the price seems reasonable as well!

Mixing

Jackie was showing off his new v6 mixing machine last night. I didn’t realize that he was getting that serious about recording music! That little machine sure does seem to be able to do a lot of things! The package that he bought included a lot of software that helped him to produce and mix songs right out of the box! Pretty nifty little machine, if you ask me!

Driving the Snakes

Earlier today I read an article about the real reason why there are no snakes in Ireland. Apparently the reason is that the water around Ireland was too cold for snakes to swim there. I wonder if that is true. The article also indicated that the story of St. Patrick driving the snakes out of Ireland was really just a metaphor for driving evil out of Ireland when he introduced Christianity to Ireland. I think it is a real shame that so many people associate snakes with evil. There are a lot of “good” snakes out there. For instance, the black rat snake is not poisonous, and helps to keep the rodent population down. Maybe the big cities that have such a huge problem with rats should consider that!
