In the New Old-Fashioned Way
Artwork by The Skimmer. He's caught my wardrobe perfectly.
In what I hope is a long and fruitful annual collaboration, Blue Girl and I have cooked up a little X-Muss treat for you.
The new version of GarageBand is pretty amazing. In past years, I'd have tracked all this stuff in GB, and then dumped the project up to Apple Logic Express for mixing; the new GB, which operates at 24-bit (!!!), has enough mixing gumption that I may just leave Logic alone. And it's User Interface Heaven. I just love it.
Last year, Blue Girl and I did a rather nice, sort-of woody and meditative version of Vince Guaraldi's "Christmas Time Is Here." This year, we decided the Joint Must Rock.
And can that girl belt it, or what?
In the spirit of the X-Muss Season, then, please enjoy our holiday offering to the Jingo Nation:
Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree (pops).
