The Definitive “Leviathan of the Ancient Deep” Recording

After 8 long years of work, the magic of modern recording and digital techniques have helped Sarah to produce the definitive recording of her Leviathan of the Ancient Deep Concerto! The 25-minute piece was Sarah’s Master’s thesis under Claremont Graduate University’s composition program, and even though 8 whole years have passed, it’s still her favorite. […]

Soul of the Machine: Now Available

Sarah’s first professionally produced album, Soul of the Machine, was released last week! This was indeed one heck of a ride with professional orchestras and chamber groups all over the world recording some of her best compositions under the watchful gaze and mastering of Navona Records. The album comes with full copies of the scores so you […]

MacManX on Music

It’s a new year, which means that it’s time for new things! As part of my own “Eat Your Own Dog Food” initiative and WordPress.com’s Daily Post initiative, I have dusted the 3-year-old cobwebs off of my own WordPress.com blog to launch MacManX on Music, where I will be blogging at least once a week […]

Provide Clean Water for Free

Three years ago, I published Save The Environment for Free, a post detailing some of the novel ways that you can help save our environment without having to spend a dime. Today, I’d like to talk about water. Many of us are used to simply going to the kitchen for a cool and refreshing drink […]

No More www on MacManX.com

After much thought, I have finally removed all traces of www from MacManX.com. Why? Aesthetics, really. There’s really no reason to have www preceding your domain, an ever-increasing number of sites are beginning to turn away from it, and it saves four characters when linking to MacManX.com in a tweet. Removing www from your domain […]

MacManX.com v2.0

MacManX.com v2.0 is finally here thanks to a new theme courtesy of Joen Asmussen.  A while ago, I began to realize that MacManX.com was suffering from the very same thing that I often criticize other websites for: link overload with a lack of focus on the content.  I’m proud to report that sidebar links have […]

Enter Weblog Tools Collection

Weblog Tools Collection, created by Mark Ghosh, has been the number one source of WordPress news for well over six years.  Just two days ago, I applied to a newly open news editor position, and I am now trilled to announce that I was hired!  In fact, my first post detailing WordPress’ impending requirements change […]

Moving the Blog

Five years ago, I installed this WordPress blog in a subdirectory at macmanx.com/blog/, imagining that someday I would have some sort of fancy website at macmanx.com, and that this would be nothing more than just a blog.  Since then, I have spent quite a bit of time turning this blog into more than “just a […]

The Blog has Moved Again

After five years, I have finally given in and decided to move both this blog and Sarah’s to the root directory.  That’s right, no more /blog/ and no more basic redirect in the root.  Five years ago, we planned on having some well-developed sites that included the blog along the side, so we placed the […]
