The Sower by Vincent Van Gogh (circa 1888)

I joined Yelp a few days ago. I was actually looking for some hats. I wanna wear other hats beside the khaki baseball cap that I usually put on when going outside or the beanies I put on at home. Not that I am hiding some horns behind my head, I am used of wearing a hat. And Yelp happens to be a very useful site to get infos from. Has maps, reviews, and everything, even photos. This is not the first time I've used Yelp, this network actually helps out a lot when I was cyber trekking all over California, as well as using Flickr, Lonely Planets, even Youtube to see samples of actual footage of the places. They just all go hand and hand together. So hell with it, mind as well joined it and share what I think of them places that I might come across to. Even the worse burger joints, or specially the worse timing to get a burger in one of them 24 hours drive thrus.

Erhu - Chinese Violin

A free show during my round as a security guard. It's some sort of a rehearsal set for the stage. Excuse my finger of getting in the way while this deep melodic and soulful instrument is playing. I would love to sample sounds like this... but then I can also try to mimic the same sounds through keyboards, slice them up and then set them to any padded sequencers like the MPC. Which I did to my track on "One Morning Trip"... All original, nothing was taken from a record, except of the vocal sound of Asha Putley. Other than that, yes I love the authenticity sound of the Erhu.

Easter 2010

Easter... And what does it really mean to me.

JOHN 3:16
"For God so loved the world, that he gave his one and only begotten son, that who ever believe unto him shall never parish, but have an ever lasting life..."

The faith, believe that and you shall be saved, believe it in your trials and tribulations and you'll be more than okay. Don't believe and then ask why (but they happens), since you are already aware that God loves the world so much that he sent his one and only begotten son, to feel how to be human, to also suffer like a human being, and payed the ultimate sacrifice to save the world from sin. Believe that, and that would be the faith in Christianity. Stumbling blocks is also a part of the journey, the same way how the son was also tempted on his journey... Even the son himself asked God "Why father! Why have you forsaken me!!!" That was his last dying words before his journey to resurrection...

The son's preaching to me on this world, is to except the world as it is, but live it right, obey the laws of the lands, love your neighbor, love self, be human, spread the news, give thanksgiving (respect what you eat - respect your flock - or else), and hopefully the world will be easier to breath in. The turn the other cheek was just a humor that he made, it was not to be taken literally, the dude was just making jokes that when slapping someone from the palm of the hands first, why not use the back hand as well. It was basically answering the questions of his believers and crews when confronting the Roman authorities at the time, which is to turn the other cheek. Basically, meaning don't be afraid and be confident. I could be wrong, but thats what some historians says. And it makes sense to me either way.

Just look at how beautiful Mother is, she might have too much crazy offspring though, from snow monkeys, to chihuahuas, to black vultures, even to cool people like Pacman and Martha Stewart.

The son's real name is Yeshua by the way... And it's about the gospels man just to get that straight. There is the Son, the Father, and the Holy Spirit. And of course, in my native ancient belief, there's also the Mother Earth...

Making Beats With My iPhone

Messing with an iPhone Apps called Easy Beats, damn I seem like a media sells man blogging about this. But it's a fun apps and easy to use. Reminds me a bit of iDrum except a with an actual pads like an MPC with portability. The sound of it ain't so bad when you open it up as wav file, after I uploaded it from my iPhone and then downloaded it from the internet @ If you wanna use it as a ring tone, here's the code: 03173547. But it's just the beat itself with no synths and etc. I'll probably be making more later as a ringtone, but mostly for ideal beats even actual tracks soon as I get the hangs of it.

It's in 120.00 bpm it's the normal numbers to it. So here it is, from my iPhone to Logic Studio.
