Woo Hoo! I Can See The Light of Day :)

Posted by Ms.Tris On November - 20 - 2012

It has been a long minute.. I know I! The “Life” part got super crazy for me in October. I had to deal with classes and the passing of two family members. One being my 3 year old malti-poo dog who was with me 24 hours a day. I mean this is the dog everyone called my little stalker..ha ha..I moved and she moved. No one ever had to look for her, because she’d be right at my feet.

I took that really hard, and still had to push on with music, college, and life. I think I told you all I got two puppies 3 year ago. Well the second dog moped and grieved so bad, we decided to get another one. We found one in Pennsylvania Dutch Country straight from a farm. She can’t replace my “Puppy Bear” but she really helped me rise from the funk I was in. We named the new puppy Ju Ju Be. We almost named her Malti-Monkey..rofl she is quite wild…

I really missed you all, and I tried to get a few post in. Minutes and my mind just would not allow me to type anything worth reading :(. One great thing about me..I am resilient as an athlete!! No stopping here, and I hope I encourage you to keep on through hard times.

The work I managed to do last month is still awesome. I am maintaining my 4.0 in courses. To my surprise Web Design and Interactive Media includes audio and video!! Wooo HOO again!. I have tons of things to share with you. I will most likely post 1-3 times a week until I get things rolling smoothly again. I’ll be back in a few with a guest post I did for “Audible Mention”.

o.k. now that I am back, WHATS been Up WiTh YOU???? Those in the US are getting ready for Thanksgiving..but I wanna hear about the beats you’ve been cookin 🙂

See you in a few..

Do You Have Inconsiderate Neighbors?

Posted by Ms.Tris On April - 7 - 2011

What? A musician is posting about noisy neighbors 🙂 ?… Well, yes I am. My lab is located in a condominium complex. I have been blessed with neighbors who have never really complained about loud music. I have, on occasion, played it pretty loud, mostly at the beginning of my career when I was young and didn’t know any better. With wisdom comes understanding, and I am a very polite producer now days.

Fourteen years living in a fairly quiet building, something some find very hard to believe. Yes, extremely pleased with my little cove…UNTIL… “Go Get Em Granny” moved in with her noisy grand kids…lol. Talk about inconsiderate? The first thing of many that comes to mind has to do with music. I remember clearly last spring on a Friday.

I’d gotten used to doing any mixing during the day when I know my neighbors are at work. When it was almost time for them to return, I’d switch to head phones. I was working on a track and I had it pretty loud with headphones on. I know it was loud because I could not hear if someone was at the door. Those are the times I let my dogs alert me by going crazy and scratching at my leg.

On this particular day I didn’t need the dogs to do a thing…Oh NO… LIL JOHN screaming “OKAY” did the trick! The neighbors grandson had a condo full of kids dancing above my head, blasting Lil John so loud I could record it clearly with my mic if I wanted…

This only added to the growing list of “Get Em Granny’s” antics. Who ever heard of anyone exercising enough at 4am to shake a neighbors wall paintings? I HAVE…. how about vacuuming at 10pm Monday night?…oh wait here’s one= carpet installed with heavy hammering on a Saturday..until 11pm???….

Yes the list goes on. I know I am not the only one who’s had issues with neighbors. This can be a very disturbing as well as a touchy issue to deal with. Just when I need it, Keybe Writes has “nailed” the subject in Dear Neighbor Apartment/Condominium Etiquette.
Amazon Product Description:
In Dear Neighbor: Apartment/Condominium Etiquette, author Keybe Writes examines issues that face apartment and condominium residents, and teaches us how to effectively deal with inconsiderate neighbors.

Covering thirty-six general topics like cleaning up after pets; keeping strange hours; overusing laundry facilities; and letting unruly, albeit cute, grandchildren rule the roost, Keybe gets to the point with sections like “Look Who’s Knocking,” “It Is What It Is: A Bag of Funky Trash,” and “Christmas in the Spring,” and also offers six courtesy letters such as “There Will Be Hammering,” “I Called the Exterminator,” and “Fight Night.” While some of the neighborly advice is comical, it’s also serious stuff. It’s not fun to live at the mercy of others-and it’s not right. For those who want a place to commiserate, here’s the perfect pad-no kids jumping up and down or bouncing balls on the second floor above our head and no loud music thumping in the middle of the night.

Not only does Keybe address issues that I’ve had, she’s included sample letters and rules of conduct which will help me be an ” A” game condo owner. It’s an easy read, full of laughs, and lots of things to consider while living as “more considerate neighbors”.
