Almost settled

We're almost done decorating the new apartment. I've been here two months now -- Manda and our stuff arrived a bit after I did. 99% of the boxes are unpacked and most of the stuff is in its proper place, aside from the room I'm in now.

I was going to do a full before-and-after tour using pictures from the BigAssSuperGallery, but I don't have the patience to make it look pretty through the Blogger interface. So, swing over to my flickr site and see for yourself. Compared to my old solo apartment, it's a huge improvement. If you've been there, you know. Manda's the hero for hanging pictures, making many decorative decisions, and possessing enough furniture to fill the place. Last big hurdle is the computer/guest room, which most resembles my old apartment. May make some progress on that today. Maybe. Perhaps. Sure.

Also on flickr, snaps of last night's tree lighting ceremony at Grand Parade. We went to see the new movie version of Rent last night (tear-jerker), then had a nice walk ending at the big festivities.

Magic 8 Ball update:
I hope to soon begin post-production on a CD of the BigAssSuperstar, John Bowles and Rick Hart farewell gig/party from Toronto. I'm mulling over a few titles, and I'd love any feedback in the comments section. Up for consideration: "Magic 8 Ball: One Night Only" ... "Magic 8 Ball: Live at the Spotted Dick" ... "Magic 8 Ball: Decidedly So" ... and possibly something else that I'm forgetting. Album will include all tracks from that evening, and bonus stuff on a CD-ROM portion or perhaps a separate DVD, including all the gathered photo and video footage from the night, and maybe even some unreleased material from the Jams At Rick's sessions.

Anyone with additional advice for mastering the MiniDisc audio to sound like an ass-kicking complete and seamless live album would be appreciated. I know how to make it sound good -- but I'd like this one to sound great....and huge. Big Ass Audio, dearies.

  1. I like "Decidedly So" just because it strikes me as funny for some reason, but "Live at the Spotted Dick" certainly gets attention.
