I really liked early F.Mac, but the only Peter Green solo effort I have is “In The Skies” which I love – what should I seek out next?
I used to use a little software gem called WireTap Studio, had it for years and it was great for recording audio either through the mic or Mac audio, or both. Now it doesn’t work with the latest Mac OS.
So can anyone recommend a way to record Skype calls? I have to record an interview with the director of “Eat That Question” for my radio show tomorrow – erk!!
I think I can probably do it running Quick Time at the same time, just wondered if there’s a nifty bit of pref free software though
Thanks in advance
It feels like ages since we had a movie thread…….
Here on Öland, our 13 year-old son has his own crib. A little wooden cabin all to himself at the end of our “garden” where he can go and have some privacy. It’s right by the edge of the forest. He’s also found a ladder and at the weekend climbed up on the roof. As he stood up there, looking like a scrawny teenage Putin, shaking his fist at me and making it clear that trespassers would suffer a fate far worse than prosecution, I had a cinematic memory.
James Cagney as psychopathic gangster, Cody Jarrett, at the end of Raoul Walsh’s White Heat from 1949. Surrounded by the cops, he climbs to the top of a chemical container and shouting defiance at the world “Top of the world, Ma!” blows himself to smithereens. A real punk, long before these rockers came along. Not to mention a gangsta, old school style.
I haven’t seen that film for 40 years (it was part of the course on US cinema I did at Sussex University). But the scene and that quote was lurking in my memory, ready to resurface here at Camp » Continue Reading.
Can anyone recommend an iTunes alternative music management tool for mac that doesn’t require pretending to still use windows? Preferably free/cheap. After my iPod classic died last week I’ve followed the recommendation of others here and gone for a fiio x3. I think the sound is definitely miles better – assuming I have not brainwashed myself. Although I am still getting used to the different buttons and slightly slower response times the only big downside at the moment is that each time I add an album (as I have been in the habit of doing 3 or 4 times a week)it updates the whole library and with 110g that can take half an hour. May need to time my updates a bit better. This has encouraged me to look at managing the library better. Music monkey sounded the trick but running on mac looks unduly complicated. What do other mac users here use as an alternative to iTunes? Is it worth the effort?
My Mum has just got a new MacBook Air to replace the MacBook she got in 2009. And she got the MacBook because she moved to a retirement village with not enough room to accommodate her iMac, which she passed on to a friend of mine who promptly had a stroke and never used it.
So are these ancient artifacts, from 2006 and 2009 worth anything?
It seems criminal to consign them to an environmentally friendly death, but really, what use are they to anyone?
