People ask me, “what do you like about your synth?”
“How is this synth, compared to that synth?”
It’s a lot like asking me what the best Tableau consulting company is, I have no idea really, but I think I don’t suck at it too much. I’m willing to blog about that stuff, emotionally charged at times but always willing to go back and edit after I push out 5k words about a bunch of nothing usually…
Emotionally charged, similar to my analog stack.
Not like a tech stack, that i normally discuss. But it’s not that different too.
Having worked for every synth, never gifted a synth, and worked long hours, years, decades… (to earn my synths)
Fighting to turn on an analog synth, patiently getting better and better in my Daw of choice, ableton. It feels good to have them together. They are a team, an emotional group of analog synthesizers.
“What do you like about your synths?”
I love the journey to get synths, my life story.
As I love each synth, equally.
Moog synths, or any synth, is a big deal. They don’t grow on trees and it takes a lot of work to own your own music studio. I set myself on a mission in college, to build my own studio, and my next mission in life is applying myself, and making music. But the journey did not start here, it started many years ago, playing flute in Louisiana, when I was 8 years old. But that’s not what this blog is about. Let’s get back to it.
“What do you like most about your synths?”
Impossible question – every user experiences a Moog synth differently.
You might find yourself deep into the complexities of a Moog Sub37, more enjoy the modular retreat, the engineer aspect, of a Mother 32.
What is a moog synth?
A moog synth is something we teach and learn from.
A moog synth is a hand crafted creature, built by engineers, product developers, project managers, developers, admins, managers, and thought leaders. Moog is more than a synth to the users. Here’s my Moog story.
What’s a moog synth, to we.
We teach you to pulsate with the beat, without FX, allowing you to completely live.
Moog synths need air but under the right restrictions or limitations, it will quickly impress any artist.
But some times we compress our Moog Synths…
We compress the mother fudge out of you…
We remove the compression.
And let it win… all while trying to find that perfect balance.
Moog synths sound best with friends.
Moog Synths are like little creatures
Living and breathing through out the track, and through out our studios.
We are still learning about each of you too, some of these synths beyond our moog synth, for some, are actually older than us.
Most days, these moog synths teach us to be better producers, better musicians, better artists, better people.
We have a weird thing with our personal synths, little personal pets, little creatures that require love & attention… and drum machines, it’s like a relationship.
We work to keep them living. We provide electricity, they provide emotions.
So, we try not to give our Moog synths limitations…
We all love the experience, having a Moog synth – is ownership of a hand crafted, or hand repaired, creature.
Some synths, simply living on the edge of death because the previous owner didn’t take care.
But now Moog synth, now you are in my studio, we will take good care of you.
Welcome to the party.

After several years enjoying yoga for the healthy benefits, I’m starting to realize the monetizing missed because I was focused on getting healthy and flexible. There’s an entire world of people who do yoga, share it on social media, and pretend it’s big deal.
I challenge you to pretend to care about yoga, and in a big way.
Change someones way of yoga-ing.
Make up a new yogi-wordi.
Inspire some one go yoguh.
Pretending to care about Google+ shutdown is key to sounding really technical, but the truth to pretending about anything, is a good list of things to pretend to care about. Like Yoga!
Who doesn’t have a yoga time in their life?
Pretending to care about yoga is about as hip as it gets but to be full granola, you need to do at least 30 days straight, and share your adventures each day. Perfecting one pose is key to building a brand to giving a shit about yoga.
Being proud of doing nothing, in a picture, is really fun.
Watch how this yoga champion does nothing.
Make sure the image has a better view than your yoga skills, and you will always be the best on your instagram feed!
Benefiting your body with each movement, capturing it, and pretending yoga is your life for a few months will probably capture the attention of your relatives and closest friends!
#3 Pretend to care about yourself
Pretending to care about yourself is easy when you finally stop procrastinating about doing yoga.
Pretending to care about yourself is a great way to get social acceptance really quickly!
Be sure to blast out a lot of random shit to your friends and family over your cellphone.
Pretend others care about you caring about yourself!
If they are next to you, text them about how much better your day is than most people that are near you. But it’s good to have them near you.
Nothing says you’re having a good day like staring at your phone for an endless amount of time, without any thought about when the last time you took a break from facebook.
In an elevator? Get on your phone and tell someone about how great your day is and show them something you can do.
In the car, get on your phone and tell people how good you look.
#4 Pretend to care about other people
Find a quick minute to post about something, that implicates you in a good light. Drop politics, voting, all that important stuff – keep it simple. If you get a chance to update your facebook picture to something helpful looking, you’re gold for a few months.
Pretend you care about someone else, and sing a song for them.
But it’s really about the picture, and you don’t know anything about playing music.
When did caring about someone matter beyond the image, and if the image doesn’t happen, it didn’t happen. So that’s important to know before dealing with any non-image engagement. Screw that.
Nothing says you give a shit, like a picture of an old doctor.
You know I care when I have doctor eyes on you.
Look at my gold watch too, that screams I care about you, and your time.
Glad we had this important discussion. I’m married.
Post a hopeful picture on your facebook and pretend it’s you helping some old person, and say something like.
“It feels great to help others.”
#5 Pretend to care about a hipster.
Not all hipsters, just a hipster.
Wow, you don’t live in Austin do you.
Beards covering double chins are the new classic hipster.
Skinny jeans are comfortable but hey,… You damn hipster.
Let’s pretend hipsters are a big problem, and pretend we need to care about people who are super super hipster.
No not you, stock image hipster girl.
We are talking about all the hipsters that take a lot of time out of their week to prepare for practically zero interactions with people. But take an exuberant amount of time getting ready, preparing, and potentially exercising to the point that it’s considered weird.
Hipsters are equally as important as Google+ shutting down their entire social media forum.
Google is about as annoying as that annoying hipster person…
Deleting everything… lol
Come on now.
Deleting everything seems a bit rash.
But I understand, from a digital marketing perspective, it makes sense.
