you know it could even be a kind of swet blister... but it's more like a sharp cut with a knife...pretty strange I've had a look around for information on it....

I think this time last year I had a really bad splinter....in my hand...
probably need to put some talcum powder on it....but I don't want to put a different thing on it each day...because I know that will just stress it out more....and keep opening the thing...

(comment on this)

12:42a
well it looks like heat and sweet are a cause of blisters...and I know I was sweting hard last week in the yard....and they do recommend talc and keeping it dry....so probably won't have a shower for a few days...and lay off the ointments a bit... and probably now...won't get back into the garden until maybe half way through next week....you know....I really do not want to damage my feet....

(comment on this)

12:43a
..and I know there was a couple of day's....where I couldn't even really walk on them they were so sore from thongs in the garden...

(comment on this)

12:43a
lets hope that's all it is...

Well I didn't get as much done as I would have like today...but there's still all day tomorrow...so a bit more tomorrow...but I do have to get onto some Centerlink gear...first thing Monday next week...along with some gear on Sunday back to the host company....


so going to put on some night cream and go to bed....goodnight..

...well I have had a really strung out day to day....I was actually thinking it was going to be a fairly pleasant day...but didn't quite go to plan...and I am just getting more and more stressed out about what these people are doing to the economy and our livelihoods...you know...2 Billion dollars into a consortium of four different business groups....a percentage of it State money...is a bit of a worry....

..tomorrow I'm not going to worry about anything other than getting the last configs on the track done...

so like I said goodnight...

(comment on this)

1:20a
..and the only reason I am having to worry about it...is because of how it's affecting our lives already...not everyone's...but there are definitely those of us...who's lives have been negatively impacted by this economy and it's agendas.

(comment on this)

1:22a
..and while you can say health is a priority...like they pointed out only 10 % of the population is over 75 .....yet what percentage of the budget are they getting....when there's already infrastructure.

(comment on this)

1:24a
..you figuratively...is it a gross misappropriation of money??..I mean figures by themselves don't mean a great deal...but in comparison with others...the public gets a better idea where it's money's going...and who's getting it.

(comment on this)

1:25a
..and just think the public needs to be more proactive in asking questions..

You know our families families came here looking for a better life ?..better life than what ?...and then well...that better life is very fast disappearing out the door for their kids....because I don't believe in 30 years from now...the kids would have experienced a better life here....I mean some are...no doubt...but I don't believe too many of them are experiencing the better life that their parents did....that obviously is so broad...because you've had families buy into the telecommunications companies...and get windfalls...you know when mobile phones came out they were big business...same as ipods etc...there's always market leaders...but
buying into a market...and having success is not always guaranteed..

....I mean I always try and have a form of happiness day to day...you know it could be the simplest thought that keeps me happy...

(comment on this)

1:33a
..but the moment I put it into perspective of the way the economy is working the division of labor and salaries...that's when I get strung out...

(comment on this)

1:34a
..then putting it into context with Global policies....some allowing some to do what ever they please....and others allowing people to do nothing....again..just think it's unfair...but Mr 2 Billion on a hospital.....doesn't really give a shit about that...

(comment on this)

1:35a
which is why I get strung out...

(comment on this)

1:38a
..but at the same time...really staying focused ...and the focus is still the same...get an album out....liberate those of us that have been abused by an unfair system...and take tyrants to court.

(comment on this)

1:39a
..not that big a to do list really..
goodnight.

Well I'm up...actually feeling three quarters of the way rested....you know....there's times when I wake up....and my body feels refreshed....and times when it doesn't....today's getting close to feeling not so drained.....

...anyway straight into this track .... would like to try and get all con figs finished today...but it may take another half a day...not sure...

(comment on this)

4:37p
Just dressed my wound...there's a reasonable sign of improvement...but I'll probably have to be at it for at least four days...cleaning out the talc...and salt replacing it...and I am actually using a secret ingredient....which scientifically should work ...but isn't a locally found product...but has a scientific use... .

(comment on this)

4:37p
..and time for a coffee..

I had a conversation with a Gherkin in a bottle today....I told him it was tine to leave the cucumber family....and join the tummy family...he didn't seem to want to leave the bottle...

(comment on this)

6:04p
All right believe it or not.. I have just finished the first rough draft which is about 95% done of the best draft.....with a few small adjustments on the way....now...time to run off the first complete version for the small edits....hurray...

I ended up putting a little bit of guitar work in the end...but it really wasn't necessary...because the other instrumentation was quite sufficient....in terms of the "beat for that section, you can't really hear it.....so I left about three bars of it as an over hang on the ending....which personally I think some DJ would rip just for that section......probably close to one of the best dance beats I've put together....or should say...in the top five of them....

(comment on this)

6:45p
So that tracks only 3:30 before a couple of bars here...couple of bars there edits...which is kind of surprising....because effectively I think it's taken longest to make....sure there were some garden breaks...Christmas...etc...but that was surprising....

(comment on this)

6:46p
I'll probably start working on those edits right now...but don't really want to...I'd like some time out....probably later next week before moving into the next track...

well believe it or not...it is finished and has been transferred to the secret locker for safe keeping.....I just listen to it...and listen to the track I did before it....and again in comparison with the others....I would not be able to pick my favorite.....because each one....has these particular moments....that just blow me away.....but you know the last song...was kind of a sarcy cynical..but also a very fun song....this one....well it's a kind of more moving ...and slightly emotive song in some parts....like the ending actually sends chills down my spine.....

so at the moment I would say...you could pick any song that's complete and each one would hold up on it's own....

so I'm kind of happy....obviously a person with more sound engineering skills than myself...would possible make a few adjustments....I know there's a couple of small areas....where I could make improvements...but it's like the Voodoo Doll track...if you said to someone what would they change on the track...you know while someone would say..."I'd have the guitars louder..."..blah...blah...."or I'd have a B# instead of a BFlat"..it would be difficult to make any substantial changes that would make it a better track...so to speak.....you know it's not like I'm playing 10 notes wrong or out of tune...basically is what I'm saying....

so hurray....I'm just really happy with how it's turned out.....

(comment on this)

10:54p
..so I'm officially taking a few hours break....and will start looking at which song to consider doing next.....but only briefly....I've got some Uni work to get done tomorrow believe it or not...running of a copy of my notes hopefully.
