Logic Does Rex Files! W00t!

I was just able to import a Rex file (.rx2) into Logic for the first time and hear it play back successfully. The key is downloading and installing the shared library (Universal Binary) file from the Reason site at:

After seeing a similar trend with another piece of software and anytime that you are having a problem with either Logic and/or your Mac, check to see if there is an Universal Binary file available.

The Universal Binary file is key to making the plugin, file, or soft synth visible within Logic.

Otherwise, you will have downloaded and installed something that is indeed there but not visible to Logic and/or GarageBand.

One other tip is to redownload the same file again and install it if the first installation does not fully work. I have gone through the experience to install a file one time only to see that a later download and installation was

much successful than the original installation.


just learned via The Today Show that there is a lunch box museum in Columbus, GA which is a city that I have never visited.

Musical Vampire Candidates!

Playing musical tag has already turned out to be so much fun and reminds me of someone being bitten by a vampire to in turn become a vampire and bite others.

I am looking for candidates that may not have been bitten by others:)

So here are a few more candidates to get in on this summer meme:

Got tagged to list seven summer songs & here's my list: Now moving on to bite other musical vampire candidates:)

Summer Meme: Sing Along / Seven Songs

This evening I got tagged by one of my Twitter and music friends named EJ Flavors to participate in the following musical game of tag with the following guidelines:

"List seven songs you are into right now. No matter what the genre, whether they have words, or even if they're not any good, but they must be songs you're really enjoying now, shaping your spring summer. Post these instructions in your blog along with your seven songs. Then tag seven other people to see what they're listening to."

Not one to back down from a musical challenge, here are my seven songs and how they made my list:

7.  Kill Joy N.E.R.D.  Not to offend anyone, but this track was the only one that sounded interesting to me besides the track "Spaz".  I can see a nice, car chase with this song as the background music.  The 80s rap style laid down a nice, percussive, retro vibe on top of the lack of bass in your face throughout the entire project.

6.  Silly Love Songs - Paul McCartney & Wings.  Somehow this song has been imprinted into my mind from a spring-summer trip to Carowinds on the NC-SC border and I have no way to remove it.  It must have been my first trip to the park at a minimum.  No romance was involved in the memory:(

5.  Don't Go - Deitrick Haddon.  From the Mary J. Blige sample in the intro to the end of the song, this is Gospel R&B at its finest.

4.  Don't Disturb This Groove - The System.  I cannot think of too many songs that create a time capsule like this song can for any moment.

3.  Planet Rock - Afrika Bambaataa & The SoulSonic Force.  It is illegal to think of summer without this song for its heat alone.

2.  Sunshine - Alexander O'Neal  A frat brother was supposed to sing either this song or Babyface's song by the same title at our wedding 18 years ago, but sang "You Are My Lady" by Freddie Jackson instead.  Either "Sunshine" is a winner in my book.  Buy this song via iTunes for a better price.

1.  Love Song #1 - Me'Shell N'degeochello.  I just heard the entire project a few weeks ago on and ended up buying it right away.  The vibe is perfect for a red light in the basement (throw away the blue one for this project).  TMI, but we could add another young one to our family while being intoxicated by the entire project:)

Now here are a few of my usual suspects musically to get tagged by me as a result:)

DJ Diva







Now it is going to be very interesting to see what everyone else comes up with:)


wonders why CNBC is so visually disfigured with their color scheme. No other channel or network goes so awry outside of prime time:(

just discovered that Comic Life app that came with Macbook is a full blown version versus a trial version. Another W00t for the day!

Dude didn't get the memo of HDOTY:

believes when 85F feels like 83F, you're having a great day!

I really like the way Firefox opens a new window without taking up massive, duplicate space. Almost undetectable too:)

Do kids want to eat instinctively based upon time of day or when they are truly hungry? lol:) Summer time dilemma raised daily!

The only real challenging threat to my personal, high standard for fatherhood is the need for space when the creative vibe suddenly hits me.

Wife is searching an area that is giving up items off our radar for years:) I hope no real, cold cases are solved as a result:)

My wife Wyteria just found our 12 year old tripod that was covered with cobwebs, so W00t, W00t, W00t!!!! Camcorder's base was only broken.

Note to MGR: Using hand sanitizer after shaking hands w/your employees is best done out of their sight:)

Despair, Inc. =

Despair, Inc. is being profiled on Nightline. Company makes demotivational items:) Dysfunction is profitable!

Firefox 3 for Macs is making me feel like I'm using a bootleg version of Safari due to the color scheme or lack of one:)

The new MySpace home page has people thinking there was a terrorist attack on a building while it's a scene from the new Batman movie:(

With global economic conditions worsening, it is going to be amazing at which business functions get spotlighted again or become least fav.

The current heat index is making the temp 83F feel like 81F. I can deal with this any day of the week or year:)

Does the Celtic bench know they're up by 40? Wow!

is respecting the Celtics for the way they went the distance to win this championship even though I'm a 76ers fan or their opponent:)

Zoo Atlanta Provoked Nightmare!

I had a nightmare shortly after our Zoo Atlanta visit last week. I was watching two snake handlers having some type of drinking contest to attract a crowd.

One had African tribal paint on his face while the other one was Indian. The snake handler with the face paint made some type of counter clockwise motion with his glass around his face and pretended to be bitten in his neck by the drink.

Then it was my immediate turn to hold a rubber, water hose. Someone looked in the end of the hose that I was holding and saw that it was a King Cobra inside.

I then dropped the rubber, water hose:(

My reaction was so real that I said "Ooh" out loud or "Umph".

Immediately I had to get up and go to the bathroom:)

Needless to say, dropping the water hose with the King Cobra inside ended the nightmare before things got any worse:)

There has been nothing laughter with everyone that has heard this nightmare of mine:)

Just updated to not post to Twitter to avoid redundancy:) is a web2.0 loaded weapon:)

Powerful Verse of the Day: Joshua 5:9 in New Living Translation (NLT)

Happy Sunday!

Marinate on this verse today from Joshua 5:9 in the New Living Translation (NLT):

Then the Lord said to Joshua, "Today I have rolled away the shame of your slavery in Egypt." So that place has been called Gilgal[d] to this day.

Check this page for more out!

Thanks goes to Quest Community Church where I heard the verse in the specific translation today.

Recent Sermon Uploaded: Where Is The Party? by Roney Smith

Although it appeared that I was having technical problems in uploading the sermon earlier this week, this morning I discovered that the uploading attempt was successful after all.

This is how some of our efforts will work to expand the kingdom of God, so we must not get discouraged when things do not appear to go our way on the surface.

The sermon is entitled "Where Is The Party?" and was delivered to the Team Soteria Deliverance Church on June 1, 2008 in Smyrna, GA where Apostle Terry Graham is their pastor.

I hope that the sermon and Apostle Graham's exhortations will bless and inspire you today!

New Music: Make A Change!

Today I am finally making public a song entitled "Make A Change" that I produced earlier this year!

"Make A Change" is an instrumental track inspired by US Senator Barack Obama as he has inspired many worldwide in his quest to become President of the United States.

For one reason or another, the timing to release the song never felt quite right with my own schedule. With the Democratic nomination essentially clinched today and the need to unify the Democratic party present, there is no better time to make this song public.

I would deeply honored to see personally or hear that the song was played as Senator Obama takes the stage somewhere or even as song replaces "Hail to the Chief":)

You can hear song on either and/or iLike and if you wish to make a purchase, just visit Electric for a purchase and an instant download.

I hope to place the song on iTunes soon as well with other music created. You can also sign up to resell the song yourself and make a commission.

We are looking to use part of the proceeds to purchase two life saving products (malaria nets via Nothing But Nets and a dynamic, personal, water filtration system called Life Straws) as a part of my worldwide ministry.

Whether you purchase the song or not, please consider helping people worldwide with these products.

Also, feel free to share any thoughts, comments, and other forms of feedback:)

Peace and Enjoy!
