Create Something Every Day (#daily365)– for April 15

Originally I had planned on doing something related to the Doomsday clock (something about “tax day, deadlines, that sort of thing), but scrapped it doing the “idea” stage. Then I got involved with prepping for a phone interview, and next thing you know, we’re on Sunday and I haven’t done anything for a couple of … Read more Create Something Every Day (#daily365)– for April 15

Create Something Every Day (#daily365)– for April 14

My piece for 4/14 centers around Remo Williams,  one of my guilty pleasure 80s movies (MegaForce is another, but we’ll leave that for another day) . Joel Grey’s character, “Chiun”, a Korean master of Sinanju, has some of the best lines (two of my favorites are “you move like a pregnant Yak” and “you drive … Read more Create Something Every Day (#daily365)– for April 14

Create Something Every Day (#daily365)– for April 10

This is the first of 3 pieces that I’m putting together today(4/12) in order to catch up from a slight derailment caused by technical issues on Saturday.– r Some thoughts on today’s CSED: This wasn’t exactly what I had intended for Saturday, but after spending  more time than I wanted to on Saturday night dealing … Read more Create Something Every Day (#daily365)– for April 10

Create Something Every Day (#daily365)– April 6

Today, while enjoying the outdoors for a bit (read: doing yard work), the word “cucubano” came to mind, and with it a song (of the same name) popularized by Tony Croatto (and, if I’m not mistaken, covered by Menudo as well). In case you’re wondering what a cucubano is, the wiki entry (found here) sheds … Read more Create Something Every Day (#daily365)– April 6

So my attempt at catching up has been less than successful, and at this point, I’m about a week behind. So, without further ado, here’s the CSED that corresponds to 3/7. Some thoughts on the CSED: I picked up The Kentucky Headhunter’s Electric Barnyard at the library the other day– purely on a nostalgic whim … Read more Create Something Every Day (#daily365)– for March 7

Create Something Every Day (#daily365)– For March 6

So, as of today (March 9), I’m still behind by a couple of days. It’s my fault, really. I set a challenging goal for March, and it’s proving hard to keep up. But I’m determined to catch up on these in the coming couple of days. In the meantime, here’s today’s piece. Some thoughts on … Read more Create Something Every Day (#daily365)– For March 6

Adobe apps– which one’s your fave?

I’ve been seeing on-and-off for a few days now various blog posts and tweets asking and discussing if such-and-such app is better/more useful than this other one. And, because the last couple of days I’ve spent a fair amount working in InDesign (probably the Adobe print app that, over the last few months I’ve spent … Read more Adobe apps– which one’s your fave?

Create Something Every Day (#daily365)– For March 3

I’m almost caught up! I was in the library earlier today looking through their music book section for anything that might have substantial amounts of Blue Note imagery to use as reference and inspiration for this month’s CSED. Alas, I found none today. So (and to briefly digress), in an effort to catch up with my … Read more Create Something Every Day (#daily365)– For March 3
