    Does anyone use GarageBand

    for their music production? I can't seem to get anywhere with it and it's probably just me. It doesn't seem very intuitive or user friendly. Maybe I should just dig out my minidisc recorder and do it properly lol

    I've been lazy and not written lately. I can do better -- I got a little too satisfied with my showpiece track. I want to do something Stax-influenced.

    As a fan of Boise state,

    the team the nation loves to hate, we pride ourself on wearing orange and blue. But as the years go by we watch the polls alot and read the hype, but one thing lately keeps on ringing true. Boise state could get their title so much quicker, if the Broncos had a kicker! A bit...
