(This post is from my old, old, super old site. My views have changed over the years, hopefully my writing has improved, and there is now more than a handful of folks reading my site. Enjoy.)

I played around a little bit with Justin Frankel's Jesusonic tonight, which is a "programmable effects processor". In other words, I play my guitar through it and it does unholy things to the sounds that come out of it. Here's a little sample of me paying through a couple of effects.

Jesusonic really sucks, but it's really fun at the same time, if that makes any sense. Justin Frankel rules.

NewApp is coming along nicely. I'm hoping to start up a private beta test this coming weekend if programming this week goes smoothly. Joe gave me a really good idea today which I added this evening, and another friend I've shown it to gave me a couple of other cool ideas to implement that I hope will be in 1.0.

I love talking in vague terms about NewApp. I feel sooo top secret- like I'm working on something AppleInsider should be covering. Ok, that's kind of stretching it. But it is fun working on something and giving little demos, and the response is always "cool!". Even if it isn't a new killer app, it is fun to use. Of course "fun to use" doesn't translate into sales either, so we'll see how that goes.

I also worry that someone else is developing the exact same thing and the sooner I get it out in public, the more likely they'll give up on it because I'm already doing it :)
