    Marc Becker

      Fat Black Pussycat Productions (FBP-Productions)

      My name is Marc Becker. Born in 1970 I grew up listening to all this great music of the late 70's, 80's and 90's.
      I found out pretty early that I love any kind of good music but distorted guitars and loud, aggressive drums accompanied by fat bass lines make my heart beat faster. I started my journey with Hard Rock and Metal, New Wave, over Neue Deutsche Welle, till I discovered Artist like Bruce Springsteen and Queen. That was when I sold my soul to Rock.
      At the age of 17 I picked up my first guitar and started to play in Bands and create my own music.
      In the early 1990's I started recording music with a Fostex 4 track tape recorder, just to capture my own ideas.
      Later, around 1997, I switched to a Roland VS 1680 and made my first mixing experience.
      I switched to a DAW rather late in the early 2000's.
      In 2003 I started my non-commercial bedroom / project studio called Fat Black Pussycat Productions.
      Since then I try to be a part time engineer, mixer and producer :-).

      Why Fat Black Pussycat Productions?
      It back in 2003 I was looking for a name for my project studio. A friend of mine liked the Fat Black Pussycat album by Five Horse Johnson at that time and said to me: "Hey Marc, listen. You're all but slim, you always wear black and you love cats, so Fat Black Pussycat Productions seems to be the perfect name for your service".
      I liked the idea; the rest is history 🙂

          Hey Marc,

          I have to ask, how did you get your photos to load into your submission. I've been trying to figure out how to do it for a while.

          Any insight is appreciated



          Marc Becker

            Thank you, Mark

            Marc Becker

              Hey Scott.
              Here's a little description of what I did to add the images to my submission:

              1. Upload the photos to a public Facebook album ( or Instagram or any other public location, maybe on your personal webserver)
              2. Open the image in the web browser (I use Chrome)
              3. Click on the image with the right mouse button
              4. Select Copy image address or Copy Image URL from the menu that comes up
              5. Open the submission in the forum and klick on Edit
              6. Navigate the cursor to where you like to insert the image
              7. Click on IMG at the top menu band to insert
              8. Paste the link you've copied in the text field of the pop up window and klick OK
              9 . Fill in a image description to the text field im the pop up window and klick OK

              The hypertext to insert your image is now created and inserted at the cursor position.
              Repeat the process for every image you'd like to add.
              When you klick the Submit button, the hypertext you've added load the photos into the post.

              I hope this description will help you.
