This is kind of weird, right? It's strange to be slightly concerned about someone you never met, but glu was a true regular around here for a number of years. Back in 2005 I was working in pro audio phone sales, and I ended up selling glu a Novation SL 25, I believe it was the first day we had them in stock. It was a funny call because in speaking to him about the Novation, it only took a question or two before we both realized who each other were, and that we interacted on this forum on a daily basis.glu wrote:I am currently in the Amazon (hurray for satellite internerz), but I live in Austin for most of the year. I try to
get out of Texas for at least a quarter of the year because of the heat.
Austin is okay, the bus system is decent, there are festivals here all the
time, but yes it is becoming somewhat LA-ish and not in a good way. High
rises for yuppies are mushrooming by the dozens, and the lack of diversity
is a real problem. IH35 serves as a racial barrier in the city, or at least for
low-income families. The city is rapidly changing, but it is still a nice place
to live when you find your niche. I would personally get out of the US if
I had the opportunity, but that is a different question/post. However, Austin
is the best city to live in if you are in Texas. I would avoid Houston at all
If you enjoy parks, Austin has a few nice ones and the city is close to some
natural beauties, but remember, it is Texas so don't get your hopes up.
I believe you, John Gordon, really enjoy girls, and Austin has PLeeeeenty
of those waiting to be your next victims. The music scene here could be
better, but it is Austin, and you wouldn't have too much trouble finding a
place to play/Dj.
Another weird thing is what made me think of glu is that I had a gift certificate for Jamba Juice, so I stopped in there on my way to work. They were playing a good CSS tune in Jamba, and it reminded me that glu had done some sound design work in Ableton for that company's website. It made me think... what ever happened to that dude?
Then I look him up when I get to the office and it turns out it's almost exactly the one year anniversary of his disappearance into the Amazon jungle, on a mission to record gorillas with a Sony PCM-D50.
