Getting set up

Thanks to my wonderful boyfriend and fam, I am now in possession of the newest M-box2 Micro and ProTools software! My two other computers went kaput at the same time and the last software CD I had was from like, 1902 and sadly not compatible with my new laptop. Also, i couldn't edit sound on my laptop before but now, thanks to Digidesign's new M-Box2 Micro, I'm ready to go!

Step one:
Plug things in

Step two:
install software

Step three:
#$%@#$^%@(^@#$*%@#$%#@$) why isn't it working?!?!?

Step four:
ohhhh, the M-Box2 and Micro version both need drivers installed in order to both work

Step five:
Mic check. WHAT! Grumble grumble (new battery) oh ok, there it goes.

Step six:
only one channel will accept a mic input? !@%&!@#$%*(!@$%(!@&#$@!#

Step seven:
import The Smiths first album "The Smiths"

Step eight:
start singing along!

Step nine:
Hmmmmm. There are a few songs on this album that i'm really going to need to brush up on before I record.

Step ten:
Did you hear something? I thought I heard something. oh, it's a grilled cheese sandwich calling my name! Woopeeeee!

To sing the songs that changed my life

This year I'm not going to bother to say I'm going to lose 20 pounds or give up chocolate or any of that. This year I plan to do what I really love and concentrate on happiness that already exists in the world instead of striving for that dangling carrot of a better world tomorrow, new slender thighs, etc...

I've been singing these songs all my life so the only thing that changes is that I'm going to record them. Each Smiths song, in order by album, by the end of 2010. No frills, music, nothing. Just my voice. What ever happens next, is what ever happens next.
