I am so glad you are here for season 2 last project A Place For Everything : Bookcase Project. So we have done about 12 episodes and thank you for coming along on this journey.

Life happens, but you know what, I will complete that project because it is important to me. If you were unable to complete your projects no worries, take your time, listen to the episode again and knock it out. Guess what, you can listen to the episode a year later and still do it, no worries I plan on sticking around for a long time, and I welcome you to do the same, one way to do that is to reach out to me via email kdoipodcasitng@gmail.com, twitter @kdoi_podcasting Instagram @kdoi_podcasting and my facebook page TKBrien72.

Digital Music Creation Project

Welcome back, we hope you have enjoyed all the projects in this season so far, lets go ahead and get started into this episodes project creating digital music.

Today’s episode will be doing double duty as we will be previewing the music to our next podcast Grey HeroesNo One Gets Out Clean coming soon to a podcast catcher near you.

For over 10 years I have been using a program called Magix to make digital music. The great thing about this project is you just need a basic understanding of music, and that basic understanding is what sounds good to you and to be brave enough to make wonderful mistakes. This program is based on loops and digital instruments. Our main focus will be on the loops as they have already been created for you and we will go into some interesting song structure that you can use right out of the box.

A Gift of Self / Oil Painting


 

Welcome back to KDOI Podcasting, Season 2 Ep 5 Oil Painting project. This is probably the most personalized project you will do in this season. It is is the most difficult because you have to wait for the paint to dry between steps.

Lets start with the story and then we will get into the project. I am a self taught painter, I have only taken elementary painting classes and recently I took a “class” about 1.5 years ago where the teacher was around providing paint, brushed and tools to paint. We had to provide the inspiration and the canvas. I decided this would be a great opportunity to give a gift to my wife for Xmas so I took a picture of our trip to Paris where we kissed in front of the I Love You Wall and I dove into the class. It took 3 sessions of 2 hours each and walla, I had the best Xmas present ever, an attempt to recreate that  moment in time.

Creating A Book Clock

Welcome back for Season 2 of KDOI Podcasting.

 

This week we tackle a great 2 for 1 project, the book clock. I originally got the idea for this book clock from The Art of manliness Podcast with  Brett McKay. 

This is a great project to start with because of the numerous ways you can personalize it for your loved ones.

Lets start off with what you will need:

Book, I’d recommend a hard cover about 3 or more inches thick in order to hold the clock works.

Clock Works pay special attention to the post diameter, the post is the center piece where the hands are attached, get an all in one clockworks that includes the numbers.

1 AA battery, needed to run the clock

Crazy glue, not Gorilla glue, crazy glue that dries clear

tweezers or needle nose pliers to place the numbers

box knife
