INCREDIBLE BORNEO SUNSET WITH WATER

INCREDIBLE BORNEO SUNSET WITH WATER

Photo by Linden Hudson (amateur photographer) while he was working in Borneo with a film crew (Malaysian Borneo). There are 2 swimming pools in foreground, then a bit of the South China Sea just beyond the pools. When the sun goes down there you have to take a moment and look at it. This scene is near a small town called Miri.

Who is Linden Hudson?

CLASSICBANDS DOT COM said: “According to former roadie David Blayney in his book SHARP DRESSED MEN: sound engineer Linden Hudson co-wrote much of the material on the ZZ Top ELIMINATOR album.” (end quote)

(ZZ Top never opted to give Linden credit, which would have been THE decent thing to do. It would have helped Linden’s career as well. The band and management worked ruthlessly to take FULL credit for the hugely successful album which Linden had spent a good deal of time working on. Linden works daily to tell this story. Also, the band did not opt to pay Linden, they worked to keep all the money and they treated Linden like dirt. It was abuse. Linden launched a limited lawsuit, brought about using his limited resources which brought limited results and took years. No one should treat the co-writer of their most successful album like this. It’s just sick.)

LICKLIBRARY DOT COM (2013 Billy Gibbons interview) ZZ TOP’S BILLY GIBBONS FINALLY ADMITTED: “the Eliminator sessions in 1983 were guided largely by another one of our associates, Linden Hudson, a gifted engineer, during the development of those compositions.” (end quote) (Gibbons admits this after 30 years, but offers Linden no apology or reparations for lack of credit/royalties)
+++
MUSICRADAR DOT COM (2013 interview with ZZ Top’s guitarist Billy Gibbons broke 30 years of silence about Linden Hudson introducing synthesizers into ZZ Top’s sound.) Gibbons said: “This was a really interesting turning point. We had befriended somebody who would become an influential associate, a guy named Linden Hudson. He was a gifted songwriter and had production skills that were leading the pack at times. He brought some elements to the forefront that helped reshape what ZZ Top were doing, starting in the studio and eventually to the live stage. Linden had no fear and was eager to experiment in ways that would frighten most bands. But we followed suit, and the synthesizers started to show up on record.” (once again, there was no apology from ZZ Top or Billy Gibbons after this revelation).
+++
TEXAS MONTHLY MAGAZINE (Dec 1996, By Joe Nick Patoski): "Linden Hudson floated the notion that the ideal dance music had 124 beats per minute; then he and Gibbons conceived, wrote, and recorded what amounted to a rough draft of an album before the band had set foot inside Ardent Studios."
+++
FROM THE BOOK: SHARP DRESSED MEN – ZZ TOP (By David Blayney) : "Probably the most dramatic development in ZZ Top recording approaches came about as Eliminator was constructed. What had gone on before evolutionary; this change was revolutionary. ZZ Top got what amounted to a new bandsman (Linden) for the album, unknown to the world at large and at first even to Dusty and Frank."
+++
CNET DOT COM: (question posed to ZZ Top): Sound engineer Linden Hudson was described as a high-tech music teacher on your highly successful "Eliminator" album. How much did the band experiment with electronic instruments prior to that album?
+++
THE HOUSTON CHRONICLE, MARCH 2018: "Eliminator" had a tremendous impact on us and the people who listen to us," says ZZ Top’s bass player. Common band lore points to production engineer Linden Hudson suggesting that 120 beats per minute was the perfect rock tempo, or "the people’s tempo" as it came to be known.
+++
FROM THE BOOK: SHARP DRESSED MEN – ZZ TOP by David Blayney: (page 227): "…the song LEGS Linden Hudson introduced the pumping synthesizer effect."
+++
(Search Linden Hudson in the various ZZ Top Wikipedia pages which are related to the ELIMINATOR album and you will find bits about Linden. Also the main ZZ Top Wikipedia page mentions Linden. He’s mentioned in at least 7 ZZ Top related Wikipedia pages.)
+++
FROM THE BOOK: SHARP DRESSED MEN – ZZ TOP By David Blayney: "Linden found himself in the position of being Billy’s (Billy Gibbons, ZZ Top guitarist) closest collaborator on Eliminator. In fact, he wound up spending more time on the album than anybody except Billy. While the two of them spent day after day in the studio, they were mostly alone with the equipment and the ideas."
+++
FROM THE BOOK: BEER DRINKERS & HELL RAISERS: A ZZ TOP GUIDE (By Neil Daniels, released 2014): "Hudson reportedly had a significant role to play during the planning stages of the release (ELIMINATOR)."
+++
FROM THE BOOK: ZZ TOP – BAD AND WORLDWIDE (ROLLING STONE PRESS, WRITTEN BY DEBORAH FROST): "Linden was always doing computer studies. It was something that fascinated him, like studio technology. He thought he might understand the components of popular songs better if he fed certain data into his computer. It might help him understand what hits (song releases) of any given period share. He first found out about speed; all the songs he studied deviated no more than one beat from 120 beats per minute. Billy immediately started to write some songs with 120 beats per minute. Linden helped out with a couple, like UNDER PRESSURE and SHARP DRESSED MAN. Someone had to help Billy out. Dusty and Frank didn’t even like to rehearse much. Their studio absence wasn’t really a problem though. The bass and drum parts were easily played with a synthesizer or Linn drum machine." (end quote)
+++
FROM THE BOOK: "SHARP DRESSED MEN – ZZ TOP" BY DAVID BLAYNEY: "After his quantitative revelations, Linden informally but instantly became ZZ Top’s rehearsal hall theoretician, producer, and engineer." (end quote)
+++
FROM THE BOOK: "ZZ TOP – BAD AND WORLDWIDE" (ROLLING STONE PRESS, BY DEBORAH FROST): "With the release of their ninth album, ELIMINATOR, in 1983, these hairy, unlikely rock heroes had become a pop phenomenon. This had something to do with the discoveries of a young preproduction engineer (Linden Hudson) whose contributions, like those of many associated with the band over the years, were never acknowledged."
+++
FROM THE BOOK: ​SHARP DRESSED MEN – ZZ TOP (By DAVID BLAYNEY) : "The integral position Linden occupied in the process of building El​iminator was demonstrated eloquently in the case of song Under Pressure. Billy and Linden, the studio wizards, did the whole song all in one afternoon without either the bass player or drummer even knowing it had been written and recorded on a demo tape. Linden synthesized the bass and drums and helped write the lyrics; Billy did the guitars and vocals."
+++
FROM THE BOOK: "TRES HOMBRES – THE STORY OF ZZ TOP" BY DAVID SINCLAIR (Writer for the Times Of London): "Linden Hudson, the engineer/producer who lived at Beard’s house (ZZ’s drummer) had drawn their attention to the possibilities of the new recording technology and specifically to the charms of the straight drumming pattern, as used on a programmed drum machine. On ELIMINATOR ZZ Top unveiled a simple new musical combination that cracked open a vast worldwide market.
+++
FROM THE BOOK: "SHARP DRESS MEN – ZZ TOP" BY DAVID BLAYNEY: "ELIMINATOR went on to become a multi-platinum album, just as Linden had predicted when he and Billy were setting up the 124-beat tempos and arranging all the material. Rolling Stone eventually picked the album as number 39 out of the top 100 of the 80’s. Linden Hudson in a fair world shoud have had his name all over ELIMINATOR and gotten the just compensation he deserved. Instead he got ostracized."
+++
FROM THE BOOK: ​SHARP DRESSED MEN – ZZ TOP by DAVID BLAYNEY: "He (Linden) went back with the boys to 1970 when he was working as a radio disc jocky aliased Jack Smack. He was emcee for a show ZZ did around that time, and even sang an encore tune with the band, perhaps the only person ever to have that honor." (side note: this was ZZ Top’s very first show).
+++
FROM THE BOOK: "SHARP DRESSED MEN – ZZ TOP" BY DAVID BLAYNEY: "Linden remained at Frank’s (ZZ Top drummer) place as ZZ’s live-in engineer throughout the whole period of ELIMINATOR rehearsals, and was like one of the family… as he (Linden) worked at the controls day after day, watching the album (ELIMINATOR) take shape, his hopes for a big step forward in his production career undoubtably soared. ELIMINATOR marked the first time that ZZ Top was able to rehearse an entire album with the recording studio gadgetry that Billy so loved. With Linden Hudson around all the time, it also was the first time the band could write, rehearse, and record with someone who knew the men and the machines. ZZ Top was free to go musically crazy, but also musically crazy like a fox. Linden made that possible too."
+++
FROM THE BOOK "ZZ TOP – BAD AND WORLDWIDE" (ROLLING STONE PRESS, BY DEBORAH FROST, WRITER FOR ROLLING STONE MAGAZINE): "… SHARP DRESSED MAN which employed Hudson’s 120 beat-per-minute theory. The feel, the enthusiasm, the snappy beat and crisp clean sound propelled ELIMINATOR into the ears and hearts of 5 million people who previously could have cared less about the boogie band of RIO GRANDE MUD."
+++
THE GREATEST ROCK REBRAND OF ALL TIME (by Jason Miller): "Sound engineer Linden Hudson researched the tempos at which the most popular rock tracks in the charts had been recorded. His data showed that there was something very special about 120 beats to a minute. Gibbons decided to record pretty much the whole of ZZ Top’s new album at that tempo. The result? 1983’s Eliminator. It was named after Gibbons’ Ford Coupé; it had been created through a unique combination of creative collaboration and data mining. And it was about to take the world by storm."
+++
ULTIMATECLASSICROCK DOT COM: "This new melding of styles was encouraged by Hudson, who served as a kind of pre-producer for ​EL LOCO … … Hudson helped construct ZZ Top drummer Frank Beard’s home studio, and had lived with him for a time. That led to these initial sessions, and then a closer collaboration on 1983’s ​ELIMINATOR.
+++
FIREDOGLAKE DOT COM: "I like Billy Gibbons’ guitar tone quite a lot, but I lost all respect for them after reading how badly they fucked over Linden Hudson (the guy who was the brains behind their move to include synthesizers and co-wrote most of their career-defining Eliminator record)."
+++
EMAIL FROM A ZZ TOP FAN TO LINDEN (One Of Many): "I write you today about broken hearts, one is mine and one is for you. I have been a ZZ Top fan since I was 6 years old. I purchased ELIMINATOR vinyl from Caldors in Connecticut with the $20 my grandma gave me for my birthday. I will spare the #1 fan epic saga of tee shirts, harassing Noreen at the fan club via phone weekly for years, over 40 shows attended. Posters, non stop conversation about the time I have spent idolizing this band, but more Billy G, as he has seemed to break free of the Lone Wolf shackles and it became more clear this was his baby. In baseball I was Don Mattingly’s #1 fan, Hershel Walker in football, Billy Gibbons in music. What do these individuals have in common? They were role models. Not a DUI, not a spousal abuse, not a drug overdose, not a cheater. Until I read your web page. I read Blayney’s book around 1992 or so, I was in middle school and I was familiar with your name for a long time. I didn’t realize you suffered so greatly or that your involvement was so significant. It pains me to learn my idol not only cheated but did something so wrong to another being. I now know this is where tall tales and fun loving bullshit and poor morals and ethics are distinguished and where I would no longer consider myself to look up to Billy. I love to joke and I love credit but I have always prided myself on ethics and principles… I hold them dear. I wanted to say, the snippet of UNDER PRESSURE you played sounded very new wave and I may like it more than the finished product. Well that’s all. You have reached ZZ Top’s biggest fan and I can let others know. Bummer. Cheers and good luck. James."​
+++
VINYLSTYLUS DOT COM: Much of Eliminator was recorded at 124bpm, the tempo that considered perfect for dance music by the band’s associate Linden Hudson. An aspiring songwriter, former DJ and – at the time – drummer Frank Beard’s house-sitter, Hudson’s involvement in the recording of the album would come back to haunt them. Despite assisting Gibbons with the pre-production and developing of the material that would end up on both El Loco and Eliminator, his contribution wasn’t credited when either record was released.
+++
INFOMORY DOT COM: ‘Eliminator’ is a studio album of the American rock band ZZ Top. It was released on March 23, 1983 and topped the charts worldwide. Its lyrics were co-written by the band’s sound engineer Linden Hudson while the band denied it.
+++
MUSICMISCELLANEOUS DOT COM: (ELIMINATOR ALBUM):
However, despite the album credits bass-player Dusty Hill and drummer Frank Beard were replaced during the recording process by synthesisers and a drum machine programmed by engineer Linden Hudson, who allegedly co-wrote much of the music with Gibbons despite receiving no credit at the time. Gibbons would later say of Hudson that “he was a gifted songwriter and had production skills that were leading the pack at times. He brought some elements to the forefront that helped reshape what ZZ Top were doing”. Hudson did no less than show the band how to stay relevant in an age where three guys from Texas with long beards (except famously for Frank Beard) and blues licks were one of the last things the contemporary market was demanding.

How To Compare Pool Fence Prices

How To Compare Pool Fence Prices
When it comes to the safety of everyone in your family, you should never hesitate to give them the best protection. Most people who have indoor or outdoor swimming pools, would do all the preventive measures so that their loved ones will be stay away from accidents particularly children drowning when left unsupervised. That is why they install various pool accessories including pool fences.

But just because you want them to be safe doesnt mean that you should not think twice spending thousands of dollars for your pool fencing. Pool fence prices vary depending on the materials that you want and the design that you want to incorporate.
You can go from one supplier to another that is near your location. Try to ask their rates for pool fencing by mentioning all the necessary details including the measurement of the area, the materials that you want to use, and so many others. However, if you do not have time scouting for suppliers, you can just use the convenience of the Internet to look for the bestpool fence prices.

Thanks to the technology, all you have to do is to choose from the different kinds of materials that are available in the supplier of your choice. Also, give them even the estimated measurement of the area where you want to have your pool fences installed. Aside from the fact that it would not consume so much time to ask for these quotes, you could expect that they would give their replies after a couple of days or even hours.
By the time that you already chose the company that would install the pool accessory you can ask them to schedule a visit to your home. They would not just get the specific measurements, but they should also bring samples of the materials that they would use at the same time.

Foamy Waters

Foamy Waters

[ Website ] [ Blog ] [ Flickr ] [ Facebook ] [ Twitter ] [ Tumblr ]

Buy here!

Desktop Background!
If you like this photo, I have created a desktop background for you to use on a range of devices, including iPhone, iPad and desktop computer. You can get it here 🙂

The "For Sale" Miniseries
"Foamy Waters" is the twelfth photo in a miniseries that I recently started. Over the next few weeks, I’ll be covering all of my photographs available as prints on my website. I’ll be uploading one every weekday (except Friday), as usual, but you’ll find a lot more information on the photographs themselves – I might sneak in a few tutorials, quick tips, etc. It’ll be great for new and old photographers alike – If you have any friends who might be interested, be sure to let them know! I’ll be updating everything on my blog as well as my other social networks, so if you would prefer to follow it there, just click on one of the links above. 🙂

About "Foamy Waters"
"Foamy Waters" was taken just south of Garie Beach, in the Royal National Park. Garie Beach has some of the best surfing waves in Sydney and is a very popular family beach destination. The Garie Surf Life Saving Club provide an essential community service in helping to keep the public safe at the beach. Garie is home to the Garie Boardriders Club. Garie Boardriders has an active membership of just over 100 member on average and has been continually running as a boardriders club since 1978. The club’s books now have over 500 members on them and a lot of older members are returning to compete in the senior and masters divisions.

Taking "Foamy Waters"
Nikon D90 | Sigma 10-20mm
1/40 sec | f/6.3 | ISO100 | 13mm

This shot is a little different to my normal seascapes, that being that I really want to capture the waves hitting the rocks with very little motion blur (though enough to show movement). Usually I go with slightly longer exposures, but with this shot I used a relatively ‘quick’ shutter speed to ‘freeze’ the water. I spent about 15 minutes in the one location – once I had composed the shot, I used a remote trigger and took about 80 photos, trying to get the incoming waves just at the right time. I liked the composition of the waves in this shot the best.

Processing "Foamy Waters"
A lot of processing time went into this shot (about 2 and a half hours). In Adobe Camera Raw I cloned out some dust spots and straightened a slightly wonky horizon (the tripod slipped a little while taking shots). I applied some global contrast, clarity, recovery and fill light boosts. I desaturated, and then started working on getting the tone just right. I wanted this image to really pop – the orginal was quite flat. So I used the graduated filter tool to boost the exposure and contrast of the pool in the foreground, then used the effect brush to highlight certain parts of the rock face and waves. The clouds required some special attention too – I used a combination of graduated filters and the effect brush to highlight certain parts of the cloud. Then in Photoshop I adjusted curves and levels, and also added more contrast just to the pool in the foreground.

Enjoy!

Day 122: Just Keep Swimming…

Day 122: Just Keep Swimming...

Once upon a time (ok, so just over a month ago) there was a man… who went by the moniker www.flickr.com/photos/daverexwood/. Basically, he was obsessed with getting into Explore. He figured his girly legs and Stripey Silliness was the way to go (and boy, was he right!)
Seeing the possibilities before him, he decided to share the love/power of the "barfy heart" emblazoned socks he’d acquired for the star shot! A beautiful lady, known by most as ambrosialove, was bequeathed the fabulous footwear… and thus began the elusive Sisterhood! *shouts and chants of "Long Live The Sisterhood" are heard from the gathering crowds*
Simple laws were established, as any good reign realizes is necessary. First, and foremost, thou must use the goods in an endeavor of auto-portraiture post-haste. Finally, as current custodian, you may determine who is worthy of the honor after you!
Up for the challenge, the aforementioned lovely was tutu much for us all! Some 62uolegnaiam felt a formal twist was deserved. ~*Cherron*~ had us seeing Socks, socks, socks and more socks, while a knock knee’d…Skymama showed how scary the Explore phenomenon/pressure can be to all the sisters! Next thing you know, Miss Dyxie pulled a fast one on everyone, and didn’t wear them on her legs! Once the socks were sent north… any & everything short of sanity was expected. A [usually] manly-man, calling himself alaskanmariner, set aflame the motto, "Never Stop Exploring". He put this into immediate practice by hopping into his modern dogsled, and hand delivering the socks to an newly adopted sister northpolemama… who showed that even the north pole dwellers can be found soaking in the sun. Much unlike mivox, who gets her kicks & giggles with more Xtreme behavior! (Girls these days!)
Once the dust, er ice, settled, it was time for an entertainment break. Never one to disappoint, Kungfukitten put on a show Sock Puppet Style and Fred & Enid were natural-born stars! For those worried at this point in our adventures that the socks have gone the dogs… fear not. Qathi was not eating the catfood (I couldn’t smell it on her breath at least… so I’m convinced!)

After all that, somehow I was given the privilege to follow suit, er sock… and I aim to please.

I present to you, the SOTTS: underwater!

Imagine, if you may, a girl… at a pool… with knee high stripey-socks, and an underwater camera apparatus… I soon had a crowd around me, and the pool was basically empty (as I’d timed it accordingly, so as not to give many any heebie jeebies!)

more to come later… for now, I must post (or folks will surely keel over and die!) and get some sleep… swimming & SOTTS can wear a girl out!

[ftr: I’m experiencing my first ever issue of "this is not what I see on my computer" with flickr… I know all the good of using standardRGB, alas I’m simply using iPhoto, so I don’t know where the translation is being lost… *growl*
Seriously, it looks pertier than this, promise!
-update-
Ok, I’ve read around for way too long, and it’s an issue of firefox’s interpretation, or lack thereof, of the color profile. I’ve tried to "convert" the shot to sRGBm but I’m only running Elements on this computer… so I’ll send the whole flie to anyone who can convert it and preserve the EXIF… otherwise I’ll try JDM’s comp & Aperture sometime later!] [blogged & blogged elsewhere]
