Loneliness leads to Logic

There was a day last week were I could not get a hold of anybody. At all. I go to the bookstore for solace during such instances. Down the street from it resides the Apple store. I went in just to look around with no particular goal at all. Like a magnet I was drawn in to a machine that was set up with a little keyboard. This demo mac had every software imaginable so I clicked on Logic Studio and it opened up to a Killers song. I was mesmerized by the fact you could peak behind the curtain sort of speak and see the architecture of the song. After reading the Logic page on Apple's website, I saw that they also had a Santigold remix song you could open in the program (see below). So, off I went and on impulse I bought an M-Audio Keystation 61es. Mind you, I don't know how to play anything. I need a nice patient piano chick to teach me "Poses", "Honey" and "I Know".

Apple & industrial design

Father of invention

Friends say the roots of his success lie in his lateral thinking - finding the true appeal of an object, often ignoring the traditional approach to design. Inspiration comes from almost anywhere. The original candy-coloured iMac had its roots in gumdrops. The popular transparent Apple mouse came from thinking about how drops of water sit on a flat surface. An angle-poise desk lamp helped inspire the new iMac. The see-through outer casing of recent iBooks came from the look that food has when wrapped in clingfilm. The iPod is like a cigarette pack for those addicted to music instead of tobacco.

I'm the happy owner of a new Apple Powerbook. I'm going out of town, playing with it and I shall return. I've been meaning to post about the mail I got last week, mix cd, a book, but haven't had time. More later.
