Water Music Recorders…

Posted in Print on June 13, 2004 by Lupa

 

For all you Indie rock bands out there, DO NOT record at Water Music in Hoboken, NJ. I interned there for like two months and the owner Rob Grenoble is a dickless peice of shit. This was a couple years ago, but I’m sure he still is a dickless piece of shit. However on the recording end, they have a vintage Neve board that sounds incredible and the recording area is huge, and has great accoustics. Yeah, they’ve recorded a lot of the Indie heavyweights over the years, but resist if you can. Or, if you do record there, and I wouldn’t blame you, make sure you give Rob a really hard time because he literally treated me like a slave, and not in the “payng dues way.”

My Small Tribute To Ray Charles….

Posted in Archives, Print on June 11, 2004 by Lupa

 

The music world suffered a loss nothing short of devasting with the news of Ray Charles’ death. They just don’t make them like him anymore; that mold has long deteoriated. Listen to R. Kelly or Musiq sing a song, and even to the most elementary ears it is missing that certain something that is clearly evident when a man like Ray Charles sings a song. Listen to his renditions of of “Eleneaor Rigby” or “Your Cheatin Heart” and they easily equal, if not surpass the originals. He shares a bond of with two other musicians I greatly admire, Stevie Wonder and Jose Feliciano, of being blind. However, anyone who is not deaf knows that didn’t stop Ray from producing beautiful music. Ray, like many great artists, had a long problem with drugs. Heroin to be exact. I always wondered how he managed to get the needle in his arm! All jokes aside however, he overcame this terrible affliction and led a life that was full and rewarding afterwards. Ray was also incredibly personable, and a person I could easily see hanging out with. It is incredibly rare for me to have that opinion of a successfull musician. He will truly be missed…

“Anyone But Bush”?

Posted in Print on June 7, 2004 by Lupa

 

There seems to be a growing movement in the country, and it’s called “Anyone But Bush.” However what these unfortunate minded individuals don’t realize is that promoting that philosophy is going to get Bush re-elected. There’s only two people that have even the slightest chance in Hell of being President in 2005: Bush or Kerry. I think they are both deplorable human beings, but I’d rather see that gigolo Kerry become President. So if you don’t want Bush to be Pres., you gotta tell people to vote for Kerry. If you tell them to vote “anyone but Bush” they might vote for Ralph Nader, (who is also a douche) if he ran or God knows who else., and then the only other realistic candidate for President will not have enough votes. It’s regrettable only two parties have enough power to ascend to the presidency in a democracy, however life being as it is, vote for the Botox injecting, flip flopping gigolo Kerry, unless you want four more years of the audacious, asinine and very dangerous Bush. Ironically, I’m not an American citizen, which means I can’t vote and am really in no position to be spewing this… If shining a big “B” in the night sky ( a la Batman) would bring Bill Clinton back to office, I’d gladly do that in lieu of voting….
