I got a notice from Google about my Adsense account. You can see the ad’s there on the right..(maybe) I have owned this site for several years.. I don’t blog on it much anymore. My brother uses it  a lot – he is a film buff and enjoys reviewing movies .

So anyway Google sends me an email…

One or more of your sites has been in violation of AdSense policies.

Huh? What the heck are they talking about? I go over and look!  Here it is! Yes.. My old blog… Violating Google Rules… What is it?

Well….The Email says:

AD MISLABELING: Publishers may not implement Google ads in a manner that disguises the ads in any way.

How am I doin that?  OH…. It said ‘KEWL’ above one ad. And  ‘Stuff” above another.. It can’t say that.  It has to say – Advertisements’ Or ‘sponsored links’ 😉

OK… I’m glad we got that cleared up. I have had this site up since like 2008. Hmmm 8 years. Sorry I didn’t wanna break any rules…Good they got around to telling me.

I took a quick look at my balance while I was fixing the problems..  A grand total of $76.66

It’s money in the bank……

Little Drummer Boy – My Video

An English drummer boy.

The Little Drummer Boy is one of my favorite Christmas songs. it was originally know as “Carol of the Drum” and was written by Katherine Kennicott Davis in 1941.

This is version was recorded in my home studio using Reaper software.  It’s really just a practice exercise to try to do a song from start to finish in just a couple days.

In my typical method.  I used cheap guitars and a 2006 MacBook to do the record. I used either stock or free plugins for effects.

Most of the settings are presets except some minor EQ tweaks.

Then I uploaded the file to Landr for mastering – also free.

Yes folks.  A whole Christmas song for your listening pleasure and free download.

Hey… Listen to it in Yer sleigh….

Merry Christmas 2015

 

Neal Hutto – Riverside Drive

166484_10150332334335707_651238_nMy good friend Neal Hutto passed away around this time of year back in 2010, My thoughts often go back to memories that we shared hanging out… Talking about music and the state of the universe and all that…

He used to MC the open mic nights at the Eclipse club back in the 90’s. He made the entertainment!  He would introduce me and I’d stumble drunk up on the stage and sing about abusive youth church camp leaders and such… It was fun!

Yeah… Neal was kool… I was a thug.. There were other artists and punks heckling other losers. What can I say? It was some of the best times of my crazy youth… Well I was pushing 30… But ya know

Dang I miss that guy. 

I didn’t make it to his funeral but I found a copy the full eulogy of Neal on Facebook. His friend Will knew him much better than I did and said all the right things. He mentions Neal’s Riverside Drive Tape that he recorded back in 1990. He talks about some of it being digitized but I have never found it on the net..

Well here ya go…   Riverside Drive (download it)

Neal was sleeping at my pad one summer and we were checking it out and I told him “lemme get a copy of that” So I simply dubbed one over….And I still have it…

I hadn’t heard that stuff in a long time… Wow! I don’t know the names of the songs but it’s quite a good little musical journey that record. Some really trippy ambient music there…

Simple and effective lyrics

“love is here to stay..I ain’t bullshitting…. Love is here to stay”

Thats the Neal I remember. 

Dave and Lucy Get Married!

Dave&LucyWell the Hipster (me yeah whatever) – I got married.  Holy matrimony…. Marital bliss and all that! Hey I found a great girl that  sees the best in me and takes me for what I am. – A knucklehead.

I just couldn’t do any better. I don’t know about destiny, predestination or God’s true plan for us humans according to the laws of the Great Universal Spirit…But I got a good feeling about this one. She is a jewel to be treasured…. That’s why I put a ring on her finger…Ya know?

Lucy and I….We got this! Continue reading “Dave and Lucy Get Married!”
