Musical Man Cave (But she likes it, too.)

Hi, everyone.  This has been a crazy busy, and mostly wonderful time for Kathy and me. 

  • Over the Memorial Day weekend we went to Oshkosh to celebrate the marriage of Justin Behnke to Samantha Kosmer.  Justin is step-son to our daughter, Kathy.  It was a beautiful ceremony, in a beautiful church.  We hope they have a beautiful life together.

  • I have been subbing school nearly every day since we got back.  June 1st will be my last day for this school year.
  • Evenings are spent working on Joyce's CD.  When we first got home we worked on editing her vocals, then did rough mixes of all the songs, and currently we are creating and recording harmony vocals.
  • In my free time, I've been learning how to use Corel Draw and working on the art for Joyce's CD.
  • I have managed to carve out some time to go fishing, as well.  Granddaughter, Nevaeh, got her first Muskie!

 

 

 

Last time, I took you through a history of how our recording studio came to be. 

This week's installment of Joys of the Journey will take you on a brief video tour through our recording studio.

In the weeks to come we hope to show you some of the studio's components in more detail, and how they work. 

Also, we plan to video a couple of recording sessions so that you can get an idea of the process.  (You might be surprised at how it's done.)

Lastly, we hope to video a mixing session or two.

Sending out a blog every couple of weeks has been fun for me, but I'd also like it to be enjoyable for you. So, I'm asking for some feedback. 

Since we started doing this, we have included music, text, pictures, surveys, and videos.  We've also offered free downloads of things we are working on.  Mostly, it has been about what we are doing at the time.

So...  

Do you like the travel stuff?  
Do you like the personal stuff?
Are you most interested in the free music downloads?  
How about the occasional surveys?  
Do you have a comment about a specific blog entry?  If so let me know?  
We think 3-5 minutes is a good length for a video.  What do you think a good length would be for our video entries?    
Are there any topics you might want us to cover in the future?

    Great job on your man/woman cave. Love it. A lot work as I can see. We are in Tennessee at Deer Run with D Wyatt and Wanda. Finally got the motorhome on the road. Praying for you and your great music ministry. Hope to see you again sometime. Miss you both.

    Thanks for the words of encouragement, Ken and Gail. Say hello to D & Wanda for us. Deer Run is a nice park, and Crossville is a nice part of Tennessee.

    Love all your posts. So much fun to see what you are doing and all the things that make up your life. Especially when we miss you half the year.

    Thanks Cassie. We're trying to get a house built this year. If we do, we'll only be gone for four months out of the year. Please pray that our lake access lot on Lake Petenwell sells. With that gone, we would easily be able to build on or property in Elroy.

    Really enjoyed the new studio tour. So interesting. It is so nice to hear the commentary and not having to read any pictured captions. You mentioned daily Subbing ?? Tough task ?? .... Refresh my memory. I look forward to every message ..... keep them coming.

    Thanks again for your encouraging words, Mike. Regarding subbing: Upon return to Wisconsin each spring, I substitute teach in New Lisbon. The entire district is in one building with three wings; elementary, junior high, and high school. Over the years I have subbed anything from kindergarten to high school. I really enjoy being engaged with the students and have a great deal of respect for the staff. Along the way I have picked up the nickname Mr. Blake Shelton. A few years ago I was scheduled to sub elementary music. The teacher knew I played guitar. The sub plans were to sing campfire songs with the kids. We had a lot of fun. One of the kids said I reminded him of Blake Shelton. The name stuck has stuck to this day. It's not uncommon for the kids to greet me in a classroom or in the hall as Mr. Blake Shelton. Just this Saturday, while Kathy and I were volunteering at an event that served breakfast to about 2500 people, I heard, "Hi, Mr. Blake Shelton." It was one of the kids from New Lisbon.
