I’ve discovered how to connect my stereo to my Allen & Heath ZED10FX mixer. I thought I’d share this discovery…I noticed there was an extra REC out on the back of my stereo receiver, so I connected that to the ST-1 channel, at the top where there is an RCA left and right input. After pressing the Record and LIsten buttons at the bottom, and turning the red level knobs clockwise, I could record a track from a record album into Cubase. Now I just need a working tape deck to do that…have a lot of good music on tapes!
I saw this amazing show last night, by three amazing actors. It’s a humorous look at gay history and the concept of gay heritage. We need more thought-provoking theatre such as this: http://buddiesinbadtimes.com/shows/the-gay-heritage-project/?fb_action_ids=10152058443482324&fb_action_types=og.likes&fb_source=aggregation&fb_aggregation_id=288381481237582
This link leads to information about the North Node (currently in Scorpio). The North Node is all about potential and getting out of our comfort zone. The South Node is always the opposite sign (currently Taurus)…if you look at which house they are both in, you’ll see what area of your live they are affecting: http://rubyslipper.ca/2012/08/the-transiting-north-node-in-scorpio/
Chrissie Hynde is a great rocker! http://youtu.be/q8mEG094mVk
It’s rather ironic how things turn out. Sunday night (July 7), I was listening to a special interview on CBC Radio 2 with Patti Smith, the rocker who has a photography exhibit at the AGO until July 14th. She mentioned how she feels that the world is changing because of its focus on technology and youth culture. She feels there should be more of a focus on the environment. I totally agree with her. As I was driving home from an interview, which went very well by the way, there was a downpour and the streets became shallow rivers…it was pretty scary. It made me think of what recently happened in Calgary. It may not have been as extreme here, but it got me thinking about the environment. I had never experienced anything like this. I was paranoid that my car was going to stall, or the brakes would fail. But I made it home…one hour later (what’s usually a 20-minute drive)…then the power went off in my neighbourhood. I was sitting by my window with the candlelight as I wrote this…I really think this crazy weather, people all over have been experiencing, is a result of global warming. And I think it just might get worse, if we don’t take action. Man has to simplify things and try harder to help to save the environment…can we all do our part?
Buddhism philosophies make so much sense…it’s good to keep positive amidst negative happenings…
