Ello?

Finally got around to setting up my Ello account. Is this Evolutionary Social Media or just another social site that becomes a waste of artistic time? They definitely created that "exclusive thang" by being invite only- but who will actually get rejected by Ello? Appearance or reality? Currently I'm at https://ello.co/gokustom

Catastrophic Hard Drive Failure #2

So this is the second 2TB external drive I've had go out in the last year. Both were working drives for my new film Rats & Gassers: Kustom Kulture Takes A Ride. After the last big crash, I saved the bulk of my files to BluRay BD-Rs using Toast. So now the reconstruction begins. I have decided to buy cheaper USB 3.0 drives to store the files on, then shelve afterwards. The Firewire 800 drives are more expensive and having them connected all the time reduces drive life. I will keep one Firewire drive connected as a working space and then use the USB drives to archive/backup my work.

Man...just got a Boss Compression Sustainer yesterday via Sweewater and UPS and was messing around with it today. One of those pedals that is hard to explain, but possibly addictive. On certain settings your bass/guitar notes really bite. Thats part of the attack setting and gives you that country twang picking sound when run on a clean or mildly overdriven channel. Really digging this one
