Finally did the clean guitar track for "TEOTWAWKI" (after a couple of stupids) and added a tambourine track, which I think works pretty well. I may have to do a little cut-and-paste on that one. I don't think I'd make a good percussionist. There are some oddities in my vocals on the first verse and chorus -- I may take another run at those.
That leaves the effects for "Vampire Megabyte" and fixing the eq on "Stuck Here", both of which I may get to later tonight, and another round of tweaking. (11:28 got to Vampire. Bwahaha! Unfortunately, my tablesaw just doesn't sound enough like a drum spinning up -- messed up with clunking noises. Can I write off a new tablesaw as a music-related business expense? On the other hand, the stake-pounding came out just fine, and it turns out that Audacity has a "generate DTMF" effect. 826-7473. No, don't call it!)
I also took a pass at About Bleeding Time (which I hadn't looked at for quite a while) to add "Bound for Hacker's Heaven" to the track list and to make sure it still builds. There was, in fact, a command-line issue that needed to be fixed in the makefile template, which had changed in the interim.
