Sad news indeed…

Terrible to read about the passing of Don T., one of the bluesiest guys I’ve ever heard on Wikiloops… he was a good friend and once even wrote a song for me. I had the honour and pleasure to play on his latest song in the ‘loops and asked him with a PM whether he would also consider to sing on it, no answers so I was thinking of him. So here you have it with a lead guitar from Carlo instead of Don singing:

Condolences to Don’s family, he truly was a wonderful guy! Rest in peace my friend…

Screenshot annotations in Linux

I’m helping out Richard with the Wikiloops project a bit, and sometimes like in every other bug report system, you need screenshots. No problem, in Linux (I use the Gnome desktop, mostly), it’s just a keystroke or two away. But how to annotate?

Like this:

Ksnip

I found Ksnip in an article on LinuxLinks via LXer. Very useful as you can see… problem solved.

And like always, thanks for reading.

Below the sphere

What a nice chillout song from Andri and from Wade – couldn’t resist to add my ‘grandma’ to it:

Waking The Cat

This morning I set my new toy to the ‘FLIP TOP-Style’, which should make it sound like an Ampeg B-15N. Then I loaded Don’s and Rolf’s awesome ‘Waking The Cat’ song into my DAW, closed my eyes, and these guys transported me straight to Memphis, TN:

Bacon Phat

What a driving and hot rockin’ one from Al and from Mark – so I took my bass, and even my amp, and drove a virtual SVT slightly into saturation as well (I might want a pedal for that, really – maybe a Sansamp of some kind?):
