You do all know about Tape Op Magazine, right? God, I love it. Whether you’re a pro recordist or duct tape-and-dreams type, you definitely need to get yourself a subscription. The best part? It’s free.
And I can’t tell you how many times the message board folks have bailed me out of a crisis. Good people.
You may also have heard about the annual Tape Op Conference, where the guys (and gals) with their hands on the knobs talk about all of the crazy changes in the music/recording world. Recently, the magazine decided to break off from the summit, which has been renamed PotLuckCon. This year’s event takes place in New Orleans on June 6-8. I’m going as part of a Future of Music expedition. Should be a geeky good time.
Spies use YouTube to gather intel. Better change my username from Slave2Osama to something more innocuous like TeenGirl69.
Write yourself an e-mail to be sent to the future you at FutureMe.org. I guess you’re supposed to think of it as a web-age time capsule. I haven’t done it yet (I hardly expect my e-mail to stay the same forever), but I have pondered what I might say to an older, wiser me. Probably something about how much sexier I am.
