It's Just A Chair...

This morning I thought about a chair I once had.

I bought it in '81 and gave it to my neighbor in '84 when moving from New York City to Northern Virginia.

This was a great chair to watch the early days of MTV
or just listening to music for hours on end.

I'm sure over the years we've all gave away, tossed out or sold items we now miss...

Pulled these two photos from the internet. Yep, this is it...

Have a great day!

Here's to everyone having a Wonderful weekend.

I'm sure I'm not the only one who's going holiday (Christmas) shopping this weekend.
About 80% done thanks to Amazon.

Local parties started this past week, and a Christmas Parade on the Atlantic City Boardwalk tomorrow.

Be safe...

All the very best to you and your loved ones

Hello to everyone who reads this...

As of January 2020 I'll be doing 3 new weekly blogs where I'll be looking for involvement from you.

1) "In The Studio"

Weekly blog related to the Music / Recording scene
***All music formats***

Big plus if you're a Musician, Audio Recording Engr. or Producer who has worked or is working in a Professional Recording Studio.

This will be a great place to share ideas, or to give tips on how to make sounds sound better.


2) "Those Were The Days"


We all have fond memories from the past.

Can be from years gone by as in...
Department stores no longer
Restaurants / Fast Food places no longer
Bicycles / Toy we once had
Songs we loved - Bought on a 45rpm
Cars from way-back-when
Past television shows we loved

You get the idea - Join in... and get involved.

3) "Atlantic City"

For the past couple of years my blogs were mostly about my beach area.
That's now going to change a bit.

Yes, Atlantic City has a great beach area. But from January 2020 on I'll also be promoting the city (including) The beach, Worlds longest Boardwalk, Restaurants, Casinos and the nightlife we offer.

It's not a perfect city but I do enjoy living here.
I'll tell you anything you want to know about Atlantic City, or there may be things You can teach me about AC...

Join in, Get Involved. Share your thoughts...

I want to hear from you...

Have a great day!

It's where I lived from '79 to '84

A place called Bretton Hall

Upper West Side
2350 Broadway between 85th & 86th St.

I was young and working at a Recording Studio on West 57th Street.
The subway was right across the street from me which made life easier.

My rent at the time was about 580. per month. unit now goes for about 4000. per month. That's out of my price range.

Thanks to the internet I found these photos

This morning just thinking about

"Those Were The Days"

A new blog I'll be starting in January 2020.

Have a great day...

Every so often I think to myself...
Back in the day working at a Major NYC Recording Studio.

This is so worth a try...

Wondering if any fellow colleagues are also on Find adult friendz?

The years were 1979 thru 84.

We may have worked at another NYC studio but...
We had the best times
We all knew each other
We worked super long hours
We were a very close family.

At the time the major studios were:

Power Station
MediaSound
Factory
Record Plant
A&R Studios
Electric Lady

We all used the following
Neve and SSL Recording Consoles
Studer 24 Trk Tape Machines
Neuman U87 Mics

We were also a part of the (AES) Audio Engineering Society.
I was living in the Upper West side -2350 Broadway
between 85th and 86th. Bretton Hall

Such Great Times...

Just here promoting a new blog I'll be doing... starting in January 2020


"Those Were The Days"


Department Stores no longer
Fast Food Restaurants long gone
Fashions we wore
Bicycles and toys we once had...

Things we did growing up that put a smile to our face.

example - had to be in the mid 60's I was pretending I was playing drums on my mom's cookie tin she had filled with buttons for sewing. It sure sounded like a snare drum.
Playing it to the Beatles, Dave Clark Five, Buddy Holly etc...

You get the idea

Please keep an eye out starting Jan 2020 "Those Were The Days"
Fond memories - We all have em!
Get involved...

Okay - My first half of my working career
I worked some pretty cool / well-known Recording Studios throughout NYC, NJ and the DC area.

Around 92ish I left the Music Industry and started a Video Production Company in Northern VA just outside of DC.
I went after the Federal Gov't. and Corporate America. In 2010 into 2011, I decided to give it up and slowly retire.

Thinking to myself that I always wanted to live at a beach. So in 2011...I made that happen.

Lately missing the Music Industry and the fun I had I decided to create a new mini Music Production Studio. No not as a biz, but for my own enjoyment.

First two photos was from when I was closing down my video company.
3rd photo running a video job for a large .
4th photo I used to play and promote myself in the DC area to other Musicians and club owners.

I so loved what I did...

Such fond memories...
Long time ago

Have a great night.

It's an all day rain day here at the Jersey Shore.
Not even thinking of going outside today.

This is a perfect day to continue working on the Music Production Studio.

Today's project...

Yesterday I bought a Yahama mixing console.
Making the mixing console rack mountable and keeping it in this flight case.

Hopefully it'll come out good.

Have a great day...

~Holly

________________________________________________________
Follow up to this post

I completed the above (see last photos)
But now thinking I want to come up with another idea.
With the Flight case on the ground. The mixer is to low to the ground. At 61 I'm not about to be going up and down to adjust levels.

Have a great day...
