feeling no pain feels good to me...

i've been quite.. reflective.. as of late. wondering why, if i don't like certain things in my life, why don't i change it?!? why DON'T i drop that 30 lbs i put on last year during my severe depression? why IS my apartment a pig sty? why HAVEN'T i worked on my songs that i started, and why has it been FOREVER since i finished a darn song?

i just wish that i could stop obsessing about boys. well, only a certain boy in particular. in fact, i'm making myself shut up about it now.

i've also... felt a more enticing urge to correct many things in my life. you only live once, etc. so i called into work today, and, other than a little nap, have been cleaning house. i'm listening to some old (i mean REALLY old) unsigned bands on tape, (jess, remember Blackboard Jungle? Honor Among Theives? Spider Junkies? Moodcrush? Love Pollution? *wistful sigh*) (which reminds me, there's technology to pass things on cassette to cd now, isn't there?!? my tapes are dying. and it makes me want to cry, cuz they're irreplaceable.) and i'm dying to eat healthy. alhtough there's no food in the house, and toast and cereal just didn't fill me up today. hm. maybe i'll wander out in a bit to grab something.

chris and brian had told me that i was coming over for a few nights in a row. i went over last night and played a couple of songs for them. may go tonight, will do so if they call. if not?!? *shrug* or maybe i'll get antsy and just GO. we'll see.

oh. and i haven't had ANY coffee since friday. go me.

"and i don't know when i became your concern
and i don't know if you'll ever change, nor ever learn
and i don't know if i've got the strength to make the set of tables turn...
...you turned me into your concern...
sometimes, i think i may be laughing too loud
i may be trying to hard to leave you
and sometime, i think, i may be doing too much for love

and i have waited all the seasons
i have twisted all the reasons
and i don't think i'll ever learn...
... how i became your concern..."

I hear 'ya. I am still trying to change the things about me that I don't like.

I am switching to decaf, but I can't live without coffee. I really like the taste of it.

But..GO YOU! It really feels good when you can see all that you've accomplished in making those positive changes that you want to!

i always thought decaf was better tasting, too. *shrug*

and it definitely doesn't do any good to look around you at everything you need to accomplish, but better to look behind you at what you've done already.

That is SO true.

There are a couple of tape/record/VHS tape to CD machines out there. They are not cheap. I would LOVE to own one. I can't afford and not even on a current job could I unless I saved up for at least 2 months. They run anywhere between 150 and 300 bucks.

They have this one that can copy CDs/Tapes/Records/VHS AND DVD on to CD copies.

i was hoping to find someone that could do it for me, so i wouldn't have all this equipment i would never use again around ;)

maybe when i become rich and famous...

For the tapes to CD, you may find some useful stuff on FurtherNet. And depending on your connection speed, you may find lots of cool music to download and you may even be able to share what you have.

most of what i have that i want transposed from tape to cd are old unsigned bands from back in like '90 or so, before cd's were all the rage, so about the only one out of all of them that i could find to download was Honor Among Thieves, and that's only because they're now known as SR-71.

I think their FAQ may have some tools you can use to transfer to CD as well. Really, you just have to record them as .wav files and then you're golden.

so, one day, when i have a hunka change to where i can get something to stream it from my stereo into wav files, my world will go round again!

For transferring tapes to CD, you could use audio capture and editing software such as Goldwave. Just hook the line output of your tape deck to the line input of your sound card. Play one track at a time and record it to a wav file with the software. If you accidentally record a little bit of the previous song or the next song, you can easily edit that portion out. Then with your CD burning software, you can create audio CD's from the wav files.

You can do the same thing if you wish to transfer out of print LP's to CD.
