Musical Creativity

Having started my job and travelling during the week, coupled with having achieved our main goal of performing at Keynestock plus one or two other factors Any Other Day are no more.

It would have been cool if it had been going still because I am still writing music but it looks like now the only way I can continue my writing is to just record it and produce it that way… so if any one wants to collaborate on some recordings over the web and add some bass / drums / vocals to some tracks give me a shout through my contact form here and I’ll send a sample of one or two things I been working on.

I might look around on myspace or even give in and join facebook and see if I can find some people interested…

iTunes

iPod 5th GenSo I finally bought an iPod and went for an 80gb black one, its pretty decent – I had previously got a creative zen touch but that was both out of date and far too chunky. The iPod is awesome, its interface is just loads better than anything else really BUT my one gripe is iTunes…

Obviously every one knows Apple make the iPod, but that shouldn’t mean their software that is used to get music onto and off of it should be lacking in a core ability – to be able to play music without skipping on their windows version of iTunes!

The interface of iTunes is pretty ok, the bad thing is that it can be a bit slow if you are scrolling through your library but the whole deciding to skip despite doing everything that users on the internet have tried – the only one that vaguely worked was turning the default 24bit playback to 16bit! But it still happens and its the most annoying thing.

I am just shocked that there hasn’t been a fix or update for the software so if you are listening apple, FIX YOUR WINDOWS VERSION OF iTUNES!! Despite me wanting an apple mac laptop at some point, its not happening soon because they just aren’t cheap.

Ok, rant over… now go get an iPod 😛
