★ Recording an album with Head Of State

This weekend some mates of mine, Head Of State, are heading into the recording studio to start work on an album...or possibly two. They've challenged themselves to record 23 songs in 2 days! Talk about insane, but totally fun!

They're heading into the studio tonight, Jungle Sounds in Mayfield, and wont be emerging until some time on Sunday once all the tracks have been laid. And lucky me gets to go along for the ride with my camera and video camera gear and record it all for prosperity, and hopefully a mini-documentary to be released with the album.

It will be fun. It will be insane. There will be fights. There may even be tears. And if all goes well they'll be live blogging it all from the studio to their new blog (which I'll be building tonight). I'll post all the links and info where you can follow the happenings later on tonight once all the addresses are confirmed.

Till then, here's a photo I shot of Head Of State a while back. Oh and there's a quick little interview / article about the whole thing over on I'm With The Band that you should check out.

★ YouTube Users vs Warner Music Group

This is probably the most elegant and inspired explanation of the latest round of dramas to happen on YouTube, ie. the takedown notices, muting, and the wide spread deletion of videos containing any snippet of music copyrighted by Warner Music Group.

I don't think anyone could offer any better explanation, or solution, than Rob Rubin does here.

★ The fluffy clouds were always doomed

clouds.jpgThere was loads of fluffy white clouds in the sky this morning, they've probably already burnt off with the temperature rising pretty sharply this morning already. I'm really not into this heat. Drop it back to the mid-twenties, even up to about 28 isn't too bad, but you can keep your 30 plus!

Supposed to be golfing tomorrow out at Gloucester, it's looking like it'll be a warm one out there with the predicted temp being around 33-35 degrees Celsius. *must remember to freeze some water bottles to take up*

Anyway, flat out at the moment putting the finishing touches on a couple of new client websites. Hope you're happy, safe, and well wherever you are.

★ dopplr, 2008 Personal travel report

dopplr personal travel log

dopplr sent out our 2008 Personal annual reports today. For the first time in a long time I really didn't do a lot of travelling, in fact the longest and furthest trip I took this past year was to Hamilton Island for Cath and my honeymoon (dopplr shows it as Airlie Beach).

There were a whole lot of trips I didn't log, ie. the first half of the year, as I hadn't joined dopplr at that stage. This year I expect that my travel log will actually be a lot more detailed, specially considering all the weekend trips up to Gloucester to play golf.

Anyway, figured I would put this up on the blog as it is reasonably interesting, though no where near as interesting as Barack Obama's. If you're already on dopplr, come say hi, if not maybe consider signing up.

★ Cooling off with Cherry Bomb

Pretty damn hot this afternoon, decided to give Cherry a treat and chase her around the backyard with the hose. She does actually enjoy it, despite the photo looking like she's attacking the water.
