A bit of every thought

1) After the last dnb gig, I won't do dnb live sets anymore. I am not interesed in dnb and club anymore. I don't enjoy it, I don't practice so why bother doing more?

2) Setup my studio, re-install my studio computer, repair my guitar, pickup the unfinished tracks;

3) I've made the purchase of one Crowphonics Cro-1 and one gieskes.nl WTR. The 1st one will give a lot of options for analog modular madness while the WTR can be a very expressive instrument. I look forward to play them all. It might sounds wired, but I didn't bought them out of gear lust, but out of real usage this time. It feels good;

4) At the same time I am feeling that some unused gears should go? Still no use for Ruin&Wesen Minicommand, thinking about selling it, any offer?

5) When I used Vista, it was hard. I thought it's just my unfamiliarity. And after I use Win7, I realized that it is not my unfamiliarity, it is its shabbiness;

6) I so lust over unsonsored vids of Rio Hamasaki. Tsubomi had become a pervert in recent vids and it's fun to watch.

Gear lust is a crime

Room decoration is almost finished. A whole month of fighting with messy, dusty and dirty environment. Now I can understand more of the pain that europeans had suffered from the dust.

No doubt I will have a new better work space very soon.

Lust is a crime, gear lust is no exception, the payoff is not being productive. Back in the day I made a lot of music with just one computer. As my gear collection grows, I hardly finish any music. I just keep wanting new toys, making new stuff with them and leave LOTS of unfinished tracks. This kind of thing must come to an end. I shall focus on unfinished tracks first.

One rule for me to keep is just focusing on my own workflow and keeping on it, stop trying new workflows.
