What the hell.

I was invited to a group on Facebook which talks about the glory days of LJ, and a few folks seem to be trying to revive their journals as a result. I tried doing so a couple of years back, but the place seemed like such a ghost town (and zone of Russian spam) that I stopped seeing the value in it. After all, if I want to post stuff for nobody to read, and can just use a public blog. :)

But let's try this again and see if maybe I get to meet a new group of folks who are as dissatisfied as I with the 140 character status update. Since this effort is to get to know some people I missed out on the first go-round with LJ, here's a little about me and what I'll likely yammer on about:

I'm an audio recording and mastering engineer of 20 or so years, run a little record label and studio called Headphone Treats, I write songs and play in a number of bands and projects. Everything from vocals, guitar, bass, drums, saxophone and a little keys... and a fairly wide range of eclectic musical tastes.

There not being much money in music, I'm also a web developer (working mostly in Ruby, JavaScript and Clojure) and have fairly extensive experience in everything from linux server admin to front end design. I do all this through my own small development firm called Websuasion, and have been doing a code mentoring program for the last year as well.

I also dabble in filmmaking through Capocus! Films. Mostly music related documentaries, performance videos, music videos and behind the scenes recording session stuff so far, but I've done some boring-but-paid corporate stuff as well. Ultimately, I'd like to do a feature film of my own.

I roast my own coffee, I'm a huge fan of vinyl albums, a lossless audio advocate, love Scotch and dabble at gardening. Happily married with a pre-teen daughter and a cat.

All my entries will be friends only, so please comment if you want added.

Hi, saw your post on GabbyMoe. I never gave up the ghost on LJ. Sounds like we have a lot of common interest so I thought I'd add you. Cheers,
