The Holy Man. December 6 is the 340th day of the year (341st in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. There are 25 days remaining until the end of the year. Today it’s Saint Nicholas’ Day. Sinterklaas is a mythical figure with legendary, historical and folkloric origins based on Saint Nicholas. Sinterklaas is celebrated annually with the giving of gifts on 5 December, the night before Saint Nicholas Day in the Northern Netherlands and on the morning of 6 December, Saint Nicholas Day itself, in the (Roman Catholic) southern provinces, Belgium, Luxembourg and Northern France (French Flanders, Lorraine and Artois). He is the primary source of the popular Christmas icon of Santa Claus. Source: Wikipedia

Unfortunately, I didn’t get any gifts this year. Guess I’ve been a bad boy. Mr. Bowie on the other hand received a gift from the Holy Man…

Coolest Jobs in the World

Think about it. Some of the coolest careers also rank among the world’s rarest jobs. In life, we often say cats have the most important job in the world. Except for one of the most popular jobs in the US of A, and probably in some other parts of the world.

Mr. Bowie, a well known studio technician, loves his job. He sets up and adjusts synthesizers, microphones and headsets in recording booths, operates mixers and audio control panels, and advises performers on how to adjust their vocals. Don’t underestimate the value of an excellent studio technician. So I don’t complain when he’s sleeping on the job. On the other hand, I call myself a rock musician and my music is inspired by Kraftwerk, the pre-1980 Pink Floyd, Depeche Mode and Trent Reznor. There must be something wrong with the volume, the tempo or the bass…

Conversation With a Cat

Don’t you ever change your mind
Now your future’s so defined
And you act so deaf and blind
Come on, come talk to me
Come talk to me

“Come Talk to Me” – Peter Gabriel

Yellow Submarine

Breaking news! Upgrading my studio monitors already had a serious impact. An English rock band, formed in Liverpool, arrived in my studio today. I was very happy about the way in which the agreement with the band came about. However, I was a bit amazed when they arrived in a weird and wonderful vehicle.

Thank goodness I got by with a little help from my friend and famous studio technician, Mr. Bowie. And our friends are all on board and the band begins to play… It’s easy. All you need is love.
