Hey Everyone,

It’s been 13 months in the making but, I’ve finally finished my green screen studio (It’s been my “Rube Goldberg” contraption).  I shot a little video for St. Patrick’s Day to commemorate it.  Shortly, I will be transferring www.madfrancis.com over to www.ericlongmusic.com while tweaking the site a bit as well.  Make sure you eat some corned beef for the holiday and try not to get too drunk.

Best!
Eric

First off, I must state that I was satisfied with the overall performance of my Presonus Firebox firewire audio interface. I found the preamps to be clean and it offers multiple outputting [...]

Hopefully Not the Most Interesting Blog

March 24, 2010

The word “interesting” cracks me up almost every time I hear someone say it. From my experience, it is rarely used as it is defined. The dictionary states that interesting means to hold one’s attention. For any of you who are artists, it means something entirely different. Now I don’t know about you, but when [...]
