Consider it another marvel of the digital age--or the latest evidence that the beautifully difficult, soul-taxing art of music creation has irretrievably slid into the hands of talentless idiots. Either way, with the help of a computer, a few peripherals, a variety of entry-level software and two weekends' worth of struggle, I have produced my first single. It's hardly a secret that musical production has been striding boldly into the digital age over the past three decades. Software that enables instruments to interface directly with PCs was pioneered in the 1980s, and current programs pack all the goodness of a full production studio into a laptop, with virtualized instruments, amps, effects, mixing boards and multitrack recording machines all onscreen. This has had a profound effect on the music industry--lowering the barrier to entry to the point where a small band with a computer, a microphone and a few instruments can produce studio-quality recordings.
Went up from Long Island in the back of a 18' hertz truck w/ 6-7 others.. no light just a couple of mattresses and a case of beer.. we looked like a boatload of Balken refugees when we unloaded. and walked a couple miles.. lost the truck with most of my clothes in it(too hot) so wandered around shirtless. Had to leave sun. a.m. to drive to Virginia so hitched back to the Island. got my moms car and made it to virginia as Hendrix was taking the stage. last act seen: Jefferson Airplane( after the Sat. nite lineup!) Spent much time in and around the "woods" and Wavy Gravys Hogfarm (Thanks for the Brown Rice and good vibes!).

From CR Blog: The Next was to be cube-shaped so Rand suggested the logo be so too. Jobs agreed and asked to see some options. Big mistake. Rand didn’t do options.
