I give up

OK, I give up. Been trying to find a few waking hours to record this week’s PW, and the universe isn’t cooperating. I’ve been working my butt off for a client this week and just found out my next gig is cancelled. I finally recorded a brief PW last night, but now Garage Band suddenly won’t read the files, giving me a really fucking annoying message that part of the file is 8-bit. DUH! Part of the file is always 8-bit; that’s how I include the audio comments!!

[sigh] So I got up an hour and a half early this morning to finish up and post PW, and Garage Band has me stymied. I can’t do a thing with the file.

And recorded a PolyGuys podcast for the show last week, but I once again can’t find the file anywhere, so I can’t post that, either.

I give up.

What do you think?

So I’m working on cards and promo stuff for PME. I am great at working with templates but suck at designing from scratch. My first attempt at a card for PME:

What do you think?

Scary

Wow. This came up in my Google alert for “polyamory,” and just the title of the page scared the living shit out of me. Why would anyone want to stop the ACLU, an organization devoted to preserving human rights? [shaking head]
