People ask me, “what do you like about your synth?”
“How is this synth, compared to that synth?”
Having worked for every synth, never gifted a synth, and worked long hours, years, decades…
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.

July 17, 2013 – I decided to get out of my Truck and into a 135i bmw.
4 wrecks in 2 years.
Never once my fault.
3 times people ran into it while it was parked.
Nearly 5k per accident, lucky one covered a couple.
135i 09, traded for a Prius, people laughed at me.
But now I own a home and paid down most of my student loans, who’s laughing meow.
The care would sorta equalize over 80mph, and pushing it around 140mph it felt like we were driving roughly 50mph…
Of course curbs and cars come at you a tiny bit faster but I thought it was one of the coolest experiences of my Dallas North Tollway Lives…
Rest easy little bmw.
Son, maybe buying an expensive car seems cool, feels like a great idea, but when you consider the logic of your monthly expenses…
Understanding when to optimize, when to spend, and knowing how expensive things are is key. Notice I was spending $550 per month for rent and my student loans are $300 a month.
Getting my monthly total down to $1,380, was better than spending 5k every few months because someone wanted to run into my little sports car.
Pretend you are you, 15 years from now, will this car be that relevant?
Or just cool today?
Hybrid from BMW
Moving to a hybrid helped me save money in gas, gas was expensive these years and for what it’s worth, keeping my monthly expense in gas low, allowed me to live in a nice area.
I had to drive more than others but I was able to drive more and it not be a problem. It allowed me to drive and take a snowboarding trip, when I barely had much money, considering how expensive everything is in America… having a few bucks here and there, is a big deal.
If I can pass any advice, moving from hybrid from BMW, … Consider opportunity costs, and if having a nice vehicle will increase your profits tomorrow, get nice vehicle, it works for hiphop artists and real estate agents and for me..
I work from home, I’m the nerdy person who executives enjoy talking with about advanced technology, and that doesn’t mean you will be cool in your Hybrid, not like me!
The gas savings alone was enough to afford another vehicle. If that doesn’t explain how expensive gas can become, consider forecasting, running sum of values never hurt anyone.
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.
The wall was a gimmick used to help Trump remember to talk about immigration. He instead used it to hype his low IQ crowd. It stuck, now it’s going to help him win another election, and keep his 1% benefactors happy.
A government shutdown, not “the government shutdown.”
Calling it “the government shutdown” would mean to say we think the government will only shutdown this one time.
It’s likely we will see this happen every time Trump wants his way.
Remember, the biggest voting class of people today are voting for someone that logically makes my brain hurt.
Here’s what everyone voted to keep in office, and this is what Americans are not really protesting very much against today…
Here it is… When Trump doesn’t get his way, millions of people starve.
The calm before the storm… That feeling when we know we pressed our luck, spent all the money, and shut it down. The reason all the media is going to show you a lot of other insane content, is to keep you from following the 1% billionaire class. These are the people giggling as we fight each other over emotional media.
This feels like the calm before the storm.
Do you think we are going to protest our way out of the wall, 2 years after the election?
Good grief we need to open up or American history books, don’t we?
We think things like “a wall” will be a solution.
Boy are we wrong. A wall to the government is a symbol of dominance over the lowest IQ bracket in our country.
Gender, age, hobbies, etc.. data…
All at the finger tips of every politician that knows to outsource to smart people.
Census data, scraping web pages, paid data subscription, or using Facebooks illegal data harvesting tools too. Oh, and Facebook got away with this too, they did this 100% legally as of right now, they gave away your sensitive private data for years and now, all of a sudden, are completely immune to being fined or consequences.
GDPR does not seem to care about Facebook right now, they are scared to go to war with Facebook, but seems to be picking on Google as of this week.
But what does all this data have to do with the wall?
The wall is giving the uneducated, media fueled, or media enriched class of people, fear.
Fear and for those who support the wall, hope.
When you mix fear, and hope, you get American media.
The wall has become a tool to earn more votes and lure unsuspecting low IQ voters into a emotionally fueled rant on the internet.
Fake media is being pushed into the eyes of every home, every television around the United States is tuned into hear more about children dying
I like to call this current media fad, the calm before the storm, play with your emotions while bigger problems are relevant.
If you think these events are bad, or crazy, you have another thing coming.
We live in a world of “this is what they want you to see.”
The information is going to blur your vision when it hits the fan, this is not the event, these are not the big events, these are the light hearted events before the storm.
The Government Shutdown
Think about the cause of the problem in America, or most countries.
Media has generated false narratives at every corner, and most of the world thinks the TV is the biggest invention of their life time, most of that world votes and the rest do not vote.
The youth have not shown up to vote, and still are coming in at very low numbers.
Even though the youth out number the adults, they still lack thought leadership that goes beyond pouring a beer on a Lamborghini.
Not knocking 50cent, rather I’m using 50cent as an example of a good thing gone bad. 50cent has every right to pour beer on his tax right off, but at the same rate – he could be telling his 22million followers about something that would progress their lives positively. But at the top of his game, this is as far as he has gotten. 22million fans and zero progressive thought leadership.
But Tyler, 50cent gives money to charities.
Yeah, 50cent gives money to charities as a tax write off, so that he can enjoy his free toys VS paying the government taxes. Giving money to a charity is a loop hole for rich people to skip paying taxes, making buying this Lambo at the end of the year, right before giving money to the charity, a smart investment in a depreciating asset.
(which isn’t smart but his fans will never understand the difference)
They want you to be distracted by the “effects” today…
They want you to get excited about 50cent, his 22million followers, and his thought leadership towards spending money and partying. He’s the perfect tool for rich Americans to distract everyone.
They want you to get excited about the football game.
They want you to focus on the latest Netflix series.
They want you to ignore the fact that the Government is the cause of the problem.
They are spending a lot of time painting a different narrative.
A false hope narrative.
The cause is right under your nose.
But you’re busy with all the distractions.
It’s the label of every show on TV, “Government… Shutdown.”
The Government failed, and if you think it shutdown because it needed a wall, then you don’t know how the government works.
And that’s the major issue we have today, we have a group in the governing body that does not know how the government works today.
But the effects make our emotions perk up and say WTF is this… and share, click, impressions…
What’s next with big media?
The big storm that catches everyone by surprise is coming down the pipeline. You know it’s coming, so stop kidding yourselves that this is as bad as the news will get. It’s likely we will have another 4 years of this because when it came time to vote again, people simply did not show up and vote.
So, do you think we are ready?
Are you ready for an event as big, or bigger than 9/11?
It’s about that time. It’s time for the war machines to cash in.
Did you know we sent nearly 60 missiles at a country?
Did you know the president owns a part of the company.
Did you know that they could not tell where most of the missiles landed?
Did you know that other countries said our attack was ineffective.
According to the claims of Russian defense ministry, the “combat effectiveness” of the attack was “extremely low”; only 23 missiles hit the base destroying six aircraft, and it did not know where the other 36 landed.
It’s 1/24/19 – I predict something very big is going to happen during this shutdown. Be safe. I would not recommend flying because it’s clearly a completely unresolved issues with the American government.
Something much bigger than the current wall conversation.
The wall is a media fueled agenda, it’s good for votes, and a wall has never been a solution.
It’s for profit. Not for the people.
The calm before the storm. This year is going to get bumpy.
The domain pythonforbeginners or Python for Beginners, is a massive pile of trash water ranking on Python related terms… After building a bunch of websites, and learning to rank, I realize it’s not hard to rank with poor quality. But this is different. This place actually has pop up ads trying to fish people into downloading viruses.
So, from my perspective, Python for beginners is ranking, is ranking with the water from a garbage dumpster.
Today, they are considered authority – with a BUNCH of affiliate links, virus pop ups, and google ads. Yes, fishing popups suggesting to download viruses… Google is not the best source of information for a lot of beginner related topics. The owners at Python for beginners are not actually doing any of their own work too, they are copy and pasting from other websites, and the code is poorly explained, without any logical next steps or helpful links.
The entire websites looks as if someone automated it, poorly.
Because I am an overly emotional blogger who gives a shat about people getting quality content, I’m going to stop at nothing until I beat pythonforbeginners… out of whatever keywords I decide to aim at, and I will not stop at one!
Pythonforbeginners.com is a pile of trash water
pythonforbeginners.com is a pile of trash water. They have click ads that are loaded with viruses, that trick try to trick unsuspecting people into clicking garbage, garbage faking to be Google offering updates… That’s how much of a pile of trash water pythonforbeginners truly is.
I learned list comprehensions from scratch, no mentor, no internet, on a laptop in Louisiana, down by the river!!!
If you leave water in a water vaporizer for too long, the water turns into trash water. Similar to pythonforbeginners.com. You let a keyword sit without competition, it turns into trash water.
During my vacation, I ran into a bunch of trash water blogs (with limited connectivity from my dads samsung galaxy phone) and so far, most if not all examples don’t explain variations or granular details, and the past few years I basically blog about every type of technology I learn along the process, so list comprehensions is no different than some rabbit dive I’ve done, professionally, but here – it’s all new and the help docs suck, big time! HOW?
Building better tutorials, with pound for pound better content, on a website built for helping new python developers. With data analysis, competitor analysis, web scraping, and tons of google data, I’m going to find exactly how to beat this trash water website.
What will Tyler Garrett be generating with this list comprehensions wiki? First of all – the 1st Badass tutorial on List Comprehensions – with overly explained stuff… Explaining how different code examples work, based on different usages of the code, with real world help…
A list comprehensions wiki that dominates pythonforbeginners insides and outsides, your trash water stinks.
Non-trashwater solution to learning, without affiliate links or poorly written blogs.
What’s cool is the competition is low, and the yield for me to learn python, and network with people who think quality content is king, well.. yeah, let’s network fam. I spend most of my time helping others, giving back, and blogging about complex things, in simple manners.
Hello, Tyler here. 8 yrs ago I was working at Taco Bell, Chik-Fil-A, and Einstein’s Bagels, now I’m earning over six figures and have multiple streams of income. Below you will find 6 things I see successful people do unsuccessfully.
Hanging with my best friends.
Time to listen to the rags to riches and what I see keeping people from really progressing. While working 3 jobs I also went to college fulltime. It’s possible.
Oddly enough, it’s not necessary if you start blogging…
And keep it consistent.
— seriously check out this tasty snack, lol, felt like I was eating fucken dog food. Terrible branding idea.
About my unsuccessful successful life.
I started working at 14 years old because I wanted to buy things.
I worked my entire life to get to this point and I hope my successful friends, and friends growing up in the grind, take a note, and listen.
I want people to know who you are, so let me tell you what I see others doing poorly. So you can learn from their mistakes.
In the last 4 months I’ve analyzed over 500 businesses and spoke to roughly 200+ CEO, VP, or some executive title.
Companies that range from 20million to 1billion in annual revenue. And I’ve been consulting for nearly a decade, in the enterprise business intelligence, automation, and predictive analytics space. (Yes — AI, data science, machine learning) www.dev3lop.com here’s my portfolio/llc/invention. Www.musicblip.com non-profit music label 🎶 🎼. And many more.
Websites cost <$30. 😂
One major similarity I see, people usually never move past when owning their own business/thing (or managing a Facebook group)…
They are only able to scale their success, if they can control their own personal ego.
They needed it to get where you are and need to lose it to get further. I speak from experience.
Here are 6 things they need to consider.
Successful people are not always right, that works enough to get you to this juncture
Rarely do I see anyone doing really well… who also understands how to monetize it, so don’t stress that problem today.
They do not understand the value of investing money back into the business, you’re not an investor, delegate to people who understand.
Their fear of failure keeps you from progressing.
The fear of unknown keeps you from changing.
The fear of success.. is one I’m still learning to overcome. I’m learning you can’t force success and finding a ‘network of people’ who support your crazy ideas, is key. Because most people only want to see you FAIL.
Last tip, they don’t know when or how to ask for help.
You know what you know.
Until someone shows you another way.
How to be more successful with your failures
Learning how to be more successful is a wash if you’re focused on fans or success. Failure is what helps me drive success. I’ve failed millions of times and now I’ve learned to fail trillions of times, in a split second.
Not magic, just tools. Went to college. Grinded.
Now I wear dumb shirts under my business meetings. 😂
