Searching out the forgotten frequencies

  • John Moreland

    John Moreland represents Oklahoma in the best way. His soulful tunes will make you feel things. He also has ‘OKLAHOMA’ tattooed on his fingers. Start here with his song “Hang Me in the Tulsa County Stars.” Wow. I love his fingerpicking paired with his deep voice. What a combination. Next, check out his TV debut […]

  • Kaizen, or Continuous Improvement

    Kaizen is a Japanese word that means ‘continuous improvement.’ Kaizen incapsulates in one word a very big idea. I first heard it years ago, from Perry Marshall.

  • Aeropress Coffee Maker – My Latest Obsession

    I really love this coffee tool. I picked one up on Tuesday and have been experimenting with different brew times and all of that. Every cup has been great! The flavor is amazing. The plunger and tube rinse off easily and quickly. I rinse, dry, then put it back on the counter for next time. […]

  • Derek Olson Is Addicted To Ableton Live

    It is true, Derek finally got the Live bug. For a long time now, I have been a Logic guy. I started using Logic Express back in 2006. It was about the time I was in my recording class at Tulsa Tech. I remember the feeling of not knowing a single thing about this monstrosity, this multi-colored beast up on my screen. Let me tell you all about it…

  • Beautiful Weather Has Arrived!

    Beautiful weather is finally here again! I am enjoying this so much. We are in the mid-50’s in Tulsa. After all that snow, this is a blessing. Malerie and I washed our cars this afternoon. I hate having a dirty car. It was killing me to drive around in a dirty car. You could hardly […]

    I have been listening to Brandon Flowers solo stuff the past few days. You know him as the frontman to the Killers. He has a solid voice in my opinion. And my favorite song off his album has to be Only The Young. check out the video:
