Is Facebook making us Lonely?

Here’s a little video I found when I was searching to find if other people were experiencing the same kind of misnomer as I was, where I felt left out, alone, rejected, and struggling to fit in, even in an environment where I could be who I wanted and put a smile in front of my obvious pain.

The video ‘speaks’ quite quickly, and I’ve found that it helps to watch at least twice to fully appreciate it’s message.

As it turns out, just when I was running out of words to say, someone else came along and said them for me.

Alesis Multimix8 USB2.0 FX

Today we purchased and installed our new mixer – an Alesis Multimix8 USB2.0 FX. Purchased from the Rockshop, it comes with the warranty that our previous mixer didn’t come with due to it’s second hand nature.
The main feature that we went for the Alesis Multimix USB 2.0 is because of it’s ability to send each channel separately to the recording software.
Previously if we recorded more than one track at a time, it had to be recorded into one single track. This doesn’t work terribly well for the way we play or record, and so hopefully the Alesis provides much needed freedom in our recording.
