Welcome to the Monday Rip Off….
These are the 5 videos, articles, audio, and products that I have found over the past week that have helped me, interested me, or got me dancing around in my car like an idiot.
My grandfather loved to listen to Wilson Pickett, Sam Moore, Jerry Butler, and the like. When this rendition of In the Midnight Hour came up on my Spotify, I immediately fell in love. These two guys do a fucking great job. Give it a listen!
I have been listening to the Lex and Terry Show since college. The show is a great and I respect how they have honed their craft over the years. In a world where most radio shows just phone it in with music, these guys kill it for five hours a day, five days a week. Trust me… Check them out!
I know almost nothing about processing audio and making it sound good. However, I recently got thrown into the fire and am in charge of a local radio show’s podcast. Thanks to Audacity I have been able to get the podcast done and make it sound like I know what I am doing. Granted, I have only gotten as far as cutting the audio up, splicing it together, and playing with some of the sound levels, but I am sure the program can do much more than what I am capable. Audacity is free and there are plenty of tutorials online, so if you need to do some audio processing definitely give it a try.
From day one, my beard has been dry and somewhat course. I know beard oil would probably solve that problem, but, honestly, I am too cheap. However, thanks to my haircut lady I found this Keratin Protein Oil at Target. It’s cheap and has really made a difference in the dryness and the softness of my beard. The fucking thing looks way darker too. Is it as good as real beard oil? I have no fucking idea, but it is cheap and I like it.
I have no idea why, but I enjoy reading posts like this one from Tim Ferriss. I never buy any of the recommendations, but I still read every one of them. I guess it just amazes me the random shit people buy.
