Is the "Secret" a secret when it really works?

Here’s Proof positive you get what you think about. A couple of years ago, my wife Peggy and I started watching “Lidia’s Italy” on PBS as we have seen ALL of Mario Batali’s “Molto” show on the Food Network… and we just recently said to each other, “we need to get Lidia’s cook book for our Italian Kitchen.” <<poof>> I come in today and the morning show guy on our AAA radio station hands me Lidia’s NEW book that just came out about regional cooking in Bella Italia. Now, he had NO idea we were a fan of hers, but he know we loved everything Italian and when the publisher sent him two copies, he thought of my wife and I immediately. “This will look great in your kitchen” he says. I couldn’t believe it and just sat the slack-jawed with amazement. Thanks Mr. Bryan Beck on 107.1 KGSR!! This is very much appreciated!

Seriously, something as specific as this proves that you bring about what you think or talk about!

Building the Beast... (computer that is)

I haven't built a new audio/video production box in a while. It's like driving a car with a clutch. Once you know how to do it, it's easy from that point on. This will be one of the heaviest computers I have ever built! No plastic here, all steel... and ooooh so fast and functional too! Can't wait to power her up! Still waiting on a couple of boards for inside.

Kreg Jig in action. VO for them, now work with it. AMAZING!

For over 2 years now I have been the VO guy for the national KREG JIG infomercial on TV. This past weekend, I finally put it to the test. Two words. 'Oh, my!' Really this was pretty dang easy and I am soooooooo glad I had this on hand when doing the shelves Mrs. Kipping want me to do in the Laundry room. Our home is authentic rustic Tuscan, and these shelves will come in quite handy for storage. When Mrs. K is happy, we ALL are happy. ;)

OMG... FB is like crack.

Where have I been? Blame it on Facebook. It's taken over a lot of daily posting time so blogging has been, well back burner. Since my last post, some nice gigs and auditions have come. Netflix came knocking last week again for a pick up session. First ISDN shot from the new studio digs. LOOOOOVE the new studio. Very comfortable. I need to do some cleaning up of the junk that piles up while hooking all the gear all up... I'll post some pics shortly.

Had a very nice set of auditions recently for Hasbro/GI Joe, and the Espy's (award show) that is coming up. Welcome new agent in Dallas Joe Chavez at The Clutts AGY. Nice TruTV audition as soon as we chatted today.

Sorry, no pretty pics or links to auditions, just a note to say SORRY for not updating lately. No major construction projects for a while at the house will let me concentrate on landing some more national gigs here the rest of the year and I can post fun stuff here! HELLO! I'M BACK!

Cheers!

SORRY! Dec was a bugger.

Didn't have a chance to post much in December.. sorry for those that visit often. The last month of the year was a killer. Very busy at the office and at the home front. Did the Netflix session again, that should be hitting the airwaves here shortly. But it was also family time which was also fun. Also prepped and readied the home office/studio for wood floors.

I am taking vacation hours to finish the floors. Some action shots below. Or check out the progress at THIS LINK:
