2. Last night I finally - FINALLY - figured out how to get Reason working inside ProTools (specifically, Reason song files that I'd previously recorded separately) which means I am one step closer to world domination. My last major learning curve hurdle is related to my software drums, and how to get them onto individual tracks for mixing and monitoring. I can't stress enough how last weekend's studio redesign has totally gotten me back in the game, creatively speaking.
3. The recent trades in Yankee-land are quite intriguing, I gotta say. I'm not convinced that the Yankees can make it into the postseason with a rotation featuring Ponson and Rasner, but if they do, I feel pretty confident with Joba, Pettite and Mussina as a 1-2-3. I was kinda hoping Manny would be traded out of the AL East, but then again, he might very well go into Operation Shutdown anyway, even though it would be detrimental to securing his next contract - this is Manny, after all, and Manny does what Manny do.
That's it and that's all.
