New Recording Diary Blog

Blog entry by Jim Hurst

[the following is copied and posted here from my 'Blogger' page]

I am beginning to work on my new CD, and thought I'd try to share with you (interested folks) a sort of point by point account of the experience.

So, here's the deal: I'll post my experiences for the material selection, pre-production, studio time, mix-down, title ideas, art and packaging efforts. and release date. All you have to do is have a look. And, should you have any questions or comments, you can do tha...

Equal Rights

Blog entry by Jim Hurst

Just as a statement of my feelings and views on equal rights:

As a believer in God, and Jesus as my Savior, I am a Christian. I have a Bible to read and study, which means I pray for enlightenment and understanding. I don't understand as much about the Bible and His teachings and Jesus' life on earth as I want to - or maybe should, but I understand more now than I did.

I also feel that I am on the earth, dealing with everyday things and trying to live a life around many, man...

You don't have to say yes

Blog entry by Jim Hurst

What causes one to make the decision to say yes?

No, not for marriage or accepting a promotion, or affirming a friends instincts. Some yes answers seem to be a no-brainer, even if it is serious contemplation that precedes that decision.

Im speaking of saying yes to trying something that has a high probability of causing pain, or struggle, or the dangerous possibility it could alter ones life permanently.

I have some friends and family that are dealing with substance abuse, al...

Thought of the day: Technology / modern technology / Love

I love technology. It allows us to do so much more and be connected in so many ways. I am connected with folks all over the world and a few folks have gotten to know me and my musical efforts, as well as my likes and dislikes and some of my personal feelings, simply because of technology. Wow. Who'd a thunk it?

Back when I was born (sometime after hammer, chisels, and stone, or berry juice and sticks, or fire and blankets, or horses and saddlebags, etc. were used to leave and/or send messages) th...

Curiosities, complaints, and a request

I have some curiosities, as most folks do, as I observe life in general. And most of the curiosities come from wonderment of the world, remarkable things, views, smells, fantastic colors and shapes. Simple yet important existences.

But, I also have some curiosities that really kind of make me say the phrases: Really?, Are you kidding me?, What would make someone do or act like that?, and the biggest one is Is there no courtesy or appreciation, or manners, or social graces in the world anymore?

May...

Right to bear arms - Second Amendment to the US Constitution.

Right to bear arms

What a tragedy in Colorado. My heart hurts for the victims and their loved ones of this callous act. So many deaths and injuries because of one sick individual. Seems this is happening more often now, and I cant understand why. No one can. Movies being more graphic and detail oriented may be partly to blame, the internet may play a part, TV, books, what have you but, deviant thoughts and behavior seem to be associated who really knows. There are many ways that tragedies occur, ...

Awite Den ...

Blog entry by Jim Hurst

Here I sit, wondering what I can do to get myself 'out there' amongst all the hugely talented artists and musicians touring the USA and the world. We spent two days in Nashville @ the IBMA World of Bluegrass trade show and convention, where we made the rounds seeing friends old and new. Also, my Tuesday night set in the Dunlop Strings /Jeff & Vida showcase suite went very well, as well as the Gig Fair and the Mentor Session. Felt good to walk around shaking hands and...
