Marvel Studios releases the highly-anticipated and super hyped up “Black Panther”, a movie I had been looking forward to for awhile. So did it live up to the hype? While I’d say yes for the most part, it wasn’t perfect. The characters and story were solid, but I felt some stuff was glossed over in the process.

Take a listen to my latest movie rap review to hear what I thought.

So what did you think of the movie?

Ever wonder what it takes to get a recording home studio set up?

In part 1, I got my desk and computer set up. In this, I focused on getting my recording set up back up and running. From the interface and studio monitors to mic and acoustic treatment, there are a bunch of things needed for a home studio. Actually, every set up is unique and different things work for different people…this is just what works for me.

This will be the temp set up for now as I figure out what to do about the long-term one.

Remember, the first step is always getting started!

“Cause sometimes you just feel tired, feel weak, and when you feel weak, you feel like you wanna just give up. But you gotta search within you, you gotta find that inner strength and just pull that shit out of you and get that motivation to not give up. And not be a quitter, no matter how bad you wanna just fall flat on your face and collapse.”

– Eminem on “Lose Yourself

As I’m getting older, I’m realizing the importance of mental strength. The ability to motivate yourself, to talk yourself out of a rut, and to get back up after hitting obstacles…all those things require willpower that comes from within. It’s not easy to find it, but if you can you’re unstoppable.

Before getting too ahead of myself, what is up? Welcome to the FIRST Opinions Column of 2018. It feels great. If you’re new to the website, this is the place where I talk about anything and everything on my mind. If you’re returning, WELCOME BACK! Thank you for rocking with me and I hope you’re excited for an exciting year. And with that said, let’s talk more about mental strength and why it’s on my mind.

One of the most important things is just getting started!

I spent some time to get my set up back up and running. From the desk to computer to recording equipment, I got everything hooked back up. I ran into some issues at the end, but nothing major that I wasn’t able to figure out. This will be the temp set up for now.

Remember, the first step is always getting started!

In part 2, I’ll spend more time with getting the recording part set up (including the mic and acoustic treatment).
