Mars and Venus are very interesting. Unfortunately there are not so many hotspots there. The more it's quite a big distance.

Sound Recording Tips For Reverb And Delay

My personel table:


General tips   Smaller reverb & short delay make sound bigger
  Listen to the sound in earphones and imagine it standing in a room
  Long delay, long reverb predelay and reverb decay will sound far away
  Delays timed to the tempo will add debth to the sound, but are not noticed. Delays not timed will be noticed
  Reverb timed to the tempo will make a smooth sound
  Try putting 2 or 3 reverbs on a signal

Bomb Alarm In Hollywood


While I was at ASCAP EXPO in LOEWS Hotel there was a bomb alarm in the next house near Dolby Theatre (former Kodak Theatre). Police blocked the Hollywood Bvd. Helicopteres were standing in the air. I don't think that it was police. I think it were reporters waiting for the bang to get the shot.
Finally it turned out to be a joke.

WoW (Words of wisdom the world is waiting for):

Is there an emoticon for middle finger? If not, what about this: ooIoo

There is always a smile in things you present…

Before you shake your head, be sure you have one.

Springtime is nice. It's like a new start in a new year, in a new life, in a new radio station.

English? Daz ease, bro!

Dear butcher! It ain't no hassle to cut sausage into mouth pieces. And don't forget mustard! Life is spicy too.

Oh, I hate those people who mail me on Friday 4pm and stressy phone on monday morning: "I mailed 3 days ago and still got no reply!"

Since you are gone I know what I miss…

Dracula? Yeah, greetings to him. Must be famous. I saw a few movies from Hammer studios.

San Francisco Cable Cars

Very famous public transport since August 2, 1873 (first cable car test).
I wanted to go California Street up to James C. Flood Mansion and Grace Cathedral. Puh, long way up. Suddenly I heard the Cablecar. I jumped on at Grant Avenue. I was standing near the gripman. It's a hard job.


I later visited the interesting Cable Car Museum at 1201 Mason Street with huge engines and winding wheels that pull the cables. yes, it is not only a museum, it is the powerhouse too.
