Hi there, I’m Brian McKinney

Developer, designer, musician, recording engineer. In other words, I like to make things

Tons of great shows coming to Lawrence this spring/summer. Really looking forward to seeing @bandofskulls at the Granada in June.

I played on an vintage echoplex today for the first time and it was insanely awesome. Every other delay should be ashamed of itself.

Forwarding from @TallgrassBeer: : Tallgrass to open $5 million brewery later this year. Thanks, Tallgrassers! We owe it all to you. [1]

I've been watching some Justified lately. Good show, but even better is the music provided courtesy of Steve Porcaro — of Toto fame.

Walking around town listening to the There Will Be Blood soundtrack seems to give everything you see a sinister vibe.

@DPruett2333 You were so right. Comparing WSU to SFA was horrible. SFA deserves better, at least they were able to beat a 5 seed to advance.

Also, do you ever get the feeling that Google is making products now simply because Apple has been rumored to be looking into it?

Android Wear may turn out to be cool, but the ad they created to promote it is excruciatingly bad. [1]

I am insanely tired of people supporting artists whose only skill is being able to hit a record button on a loop machine.

Caught Childish Gambino in KC last night. Talented guy, but man the Deep Web live show he does is really impressive. Highly recommended.

K-state vs Kentucky and a possible matchup with Wichita State in the second round? Awesome draw. Love it.

@DPruett2333 I wish the best for wsu, merely pointing out some hypocrisy regarding the seeding.

@DPruett2333 of course, because you wouldn't want to compare overall SOS. Nice slight on my reading though, you can't argue with facts.

@DPruett2333 but Stephen F. Austin *tried* to schedule harder competition, it's just that no one would play them. :/

But I guess they're in a lesser conference so...oh wait! I almost forgot WSU is in the valley!

If Wichita State is a 1 seed, the Stephen F. Austin Lumberjacks should be a top 5 seed. They have a 20+ win streak, lost 2 games all season.

The Stephen F. Austin lumberjacks mascot is the coolest damn mascot I've ever seen.

@jhspedals great! Love your pedals, thanks for the heads up.

Tonight is a Hustle & Flow kinda night.

@daniellindsley Congratulations! Welcome home. It'll be great to have you back in Lawrence.

Forwarding from @NicoleAtkins: : Amy Ray bow down to the queen! [1]

@jhspedals Any idea when the panther cub will be available again? Tried one in person and loved it, but it had a defect and was sent back.

Great year for North Dakota State. Their fball team wins the FCS national championship and their bball team is going to the tourney.

Life is good when you can order a $28 glass of Jeffersons presidential reserve bourbon and not be bothered.

The bass player for the Fast Food Junkies works at Merchant's as a bartender. I feel like the Queen of England just served me a beer.

@apogeedigital I just saw that I missed the 15% sale. I've been wanting a Quartet for months. Any chance you could cut a guy a break?

@brettregan Ah, sorry. Saw someone else caught it before I did after I sent you that. Thanks for covering the cats all the way over there!
