RIM is making me crazy!

Most people who know me, know that I dis-like my BlackBerry. I’m being polite, hence the “dis-like” word versus more accurate words such as “Hate”, “Can’t Stand”, “Drives me crazy”

Why do I hate this phone, ahem, “dis-like” this phone so much. Well, if you remember a few weeks ago… Blackberry had this whole global outage thing. Well, I barely noticed right off the back, because my BlackBerry normally works like a silver-spooned white kid in a manual labour job. Not well (apologies to any hard working silver-spooned white kids working in manual labour jobs)! Read more »

Bad Church Video – Example

So a few days ago, I wrote a blog about how “Church Sound Sucks!” and it hurt to write, yet at the same time I think it needed to be said. So last night I was at an event for a ministry here in our city. It was a banquet, had some great speakers, good food, great people. Well my wife was giving me some bad looks as I cringed occasionally during feedback, ringing, and the occasions pop throughout the night. You know the look, it’s the one that says “Shut it! Don’t you say a word!” Trust me, I know it. I get it a lot! Read more »

Church Sound Sucks!

Of all the venues in the world where the magnificent art of live sound is practiced, churches have to be the worst. Well, that and your local garage band and their definition of sound (read: noise).

Now I know what you’re thinking: “Matt, you got started in this industry BECAUSE of church sound! This is the very reason you have a business, it’s your life. You’re being sacrilegious!” I know, I know… bear with me for a min, you’ll see where I’m going.

Blackberry’s Nightmare

This week has been pretty rough for all of our friends just down the 401. It had been almost the perfect nightmare for Jim and Mike, from RIM (Research In Motion) makers of the Blackberry. Not only did they have a server failure that has seemingly brought the world of many BlackBerry users, crashing down… But it happened at a most unfortunate time! In a rolling messaging black out that started on Monday in parts of Eastern Europe and Asia, only to sweep the world, beginning to affect the America’s yesterday in the early hours… BlackBerry was looking down for the count.

What I Loved about Cedia 2011

CEDIA 2011 – Let’s roll! Or at least that how I felt after my journey to get to the wonderful city of Indianapolis. I had been in New York City the previous weekend and drove back to London on Tuesday (9 hrs), slept the night and then visited a bunch of customers and job sites in time to leave around 3pm Wednesday for Indy. After another 7+ hours on the road with a break for dinner with my sister and some friends in Lansing, I finally arrived in Indy. I checked in and did some more work in the room, then finally called in a night and tried to grab some sleep in prep for the wonderful experience that is CEDIA! Read more »
