Artist Spotlight gone dark?! 5 years ago
No Artist Spotlight visible here on Firefox 16.0.1! smiley
I cannot see my download button, etc. 5 years ago
Checked with Safari it's okay! Download + Report buttons there. So the bug must be with Firefox.

Yes, confirm this bug too! smiley All buttons are invisible. smiley It's only on my own songs - the others from other musicians are not affected.

Why did Apple release GB11 for Snow Leopard users only?? Kinda stupid i find!

Because Leopard was released 3 years ago and it uses features that Leopard doesn't have. If you're whining because you have a G5 and can't upgrade to Snow Leopard, the last G5 model was released in 2005.

I'm not whining at all. I just see how discriminating Apple is! I like my Leopard Mac and sure i'm not a capitalist to afford every year or two a new computer.

Garageband often cuts off ends of songs! 8 years ago
I often wondered why Garageband often cuts off ends of songs! So i found out how to solve this.

Just drag the end point of the marker far enough from the real end of your song. Or insert a long fade-out into the master track.

Garageband also often produces some rebouncing sounds on the beginning of the songs! You can solve this by inserting a fade-in on the master track. Best if you put the beginning of your song a little more distant from zero point. This works for me.

A happy music making to you.

Its Funny I never see a Hip Hop track in the top songs list yet

Sad enough. And same happens with Ambient Music!!
I know that's maybe not Mainstream Music. But there are obviously some preferences given to defined music styles or artists. Who knows?

This my opinion
Elizabeth Gilbert on creative genius - a videoclip on TED 9 years ago
Elizabeth Gilbert: A different way to think about creative genius

* Do you feel songs come “through” you?
* Do you wait for inspiration?
* Or do you just work and work no matter what?

* Do you feel you’ve already achieved your “greatest hit”?
* Or is your greatest work yet-to-come?

Elizabeth Gilbert on creative genius...
Watch the clip here >

About this talk/clip

Elizabeth Gilbert muses on the impossible things we expect from artists and geniuses -- and shares the radical idea that, instead of the rare person "being" a genius, all of us "have" a genius. It's a funny, personal and surprisingly moving talk.

I enjoyed it very much - hopefully you'll do the same. Thank you smiley
