McPherson Kansas TKD Competition 20120204
My First Taekwondo Competition in McPherson, Kansas
The T-shirt reads, "There's no "Fear" in McPherson." I didn't buy the competition T-shirt this time, but I did have a good time with family and friends at my first Taekwondo tournament.

Check Military By Owner when house hunting
MILITARY: CHECK MILITARYBYOWNER.COM WHEN LOOKING TO BUY OR RENT A HOME
Moving your entire life around periodically, and sometimes very unexpectedly, is a challenge that all military families share. When the time comes, it's great to have resources you can use to help alleviate some of the stress involved.
For our last two PCSs (relocations), to Montgomery, Alabama and Alexandria, Virginia, MilitaryByOwner.com was how we found great homes to rent. We also found homes to buy through the website.
How to Make Beats Wrapping the Samples in Sample Flip Beats Remixes
When I make Moody Instrumental Music, sometimes I "sample" or use parts from an existing song or musical piece. My goal in sampling is to take parts from a piece that I love and build a completely different musical piece that leaves the listener saying, "WOW, you got that result from those sampled pieces?!"
The way I do this is by "wrapping" (not rapping) the sample with my own instrumentation. I create different musical patterns with the sampled pieces (called "flipping the sample"). While I flip the samples, I can hear (in my head) all of the instrumentation that I want to wrap the sample pieces in. When i finish the sample flip patterns, I go back and create the instrumentation that I heard (in my head).
In this video, watch how I make a sample flip beat and instrumental music using Propellerhead's Reason software, the Akai MPD32 and the Yamaha DJX MIDI keyboard. This video takes you into my thought process about sampling, "chopping and flipping" samples, and I give you tips on how to make music.
This video catches me on one of my "happier" days, in which my overall "moody-ness" level was low. Plus, I had just finished downing a can of Mountain Dew. So, I'm a bit more animated in this video.
