so.. why am I chatty all of a sudden..
probably coz I'm bored out've me skull..
and nobody's online..
but, despite all appearances.. I'm real busy..
processing all these gig recording's I've made on minidisc, for the last month or so..
tweakin' them up to a decent sound quality,
chopping them up into handy little bite sized song bits..
and burning it all to CD's..
I got about 4 hours worth of this stuff, in 5 seperate gigs..
and in all likelyhood.. it's gonna take at least twice that time to process it all..
more likely 3 times as long.. if the first gig wuz any indication..
damn tedious work.. since, although it takes a long time to work on..
not much work is done, except for clicking one option, and waiting 10minutes
to 1/2 an hour while your PC neanders off to take a coffee break.. only to finish the
task in the last 1 minute..
staring blankly at progress bars.. cursing my ancient piece of late 20th century equipment..
but.. with a change of attitude, this sorta work would be a career revelation..
consider those old bourbon ads they used to have..
golden lit images of these old codgers sitting around barrels playing endless games of chess,
waiting for their brews to ferment, age and mature..
with the right atmosphere, I could really go for work like that..
perhaps I should just dump all this stuff to an equivalent powered laptop PC..
and just lounge around various clubs n bars.. playing endless games of chess with the drunks..
waiting for my file task to slowly creep up the progress bar..
oh, and a message to Wokka..
I'm working on your gig right now..
it'll be ready right in a jiffy.. (give or take 3 hours.. hahahahha)
yes.. it may be tedious work sometimes..
but, it's all about the music..
so, all in all.. makes ya feel like you've made a difference in the end..
I like that in my lunatic hobby I like to call a job..
