The Production Room was founded in 1995 as one of the first full time digital commercial recording facilties on the central coast of California. We started with 4 stereo tracks, 16 mb of ram and a 250 mb hard drive. A lot has happened since then. Today we're focusing on ways to serve clients who are creating web based media content. This includes strategic planning to integrate the benefits of traditional media, web design and IT solutions into new programs produced especially for on-line consumers. Join in the conversation. Throw rocks at glass houses. Share your vision of the future. This is the most progressive time in the media arts since Johannes Gutenburg invented movable type!

June 6th, 1968

I was almost nine years old on June 6th, 1968.

Bobby Kennedy was congratulating supporters at the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles, about 90 miles from my home.

We were watching a live report from KNXT Channel 2 when I saw it.
It still shocks me.

I was just a few months older than John F. Kennedy Jr. when his father was killed and I remember tones of grey as the nation laid him to rest at Arlington.

Martin Luther King Jr. was killed on April 4th, 1968.

A few months later I saw Bobby Kennedy die.

The Space Program couldn't save them. The Beatles couldn't save them.

Eventually John Lennon himself was murdered.

When I see Barack Obama speak it hits me in the gut and brings the water to my eyes and makes me whisper, "Please God, don't take him from us."
