Come join my family and I on our many adventures and follow Robin on her weight loss journey. I post tutorials and reviews on various subjects such as Premier Pro, the GoPro, Hotel Reviews, etc. You will also find covers that I have made using my Tyros 4, as well as original compositions.

The Johnny O Show


This is the last day we spent on South Padre Island before departing to San Antonio, and then from there, home.
We got a good deal on some night fishing with Breakaway Cruises again. It wasn't too bad - some of us had better luck catching fish than others, but it was a nice experience.
After we got back from fishing around 10, we were all starving. Robin & Tiana weren't up for going out, but the rest of us wanted to eat out one last time in South Padre. So we looked up several well-reviewed restaurants, and found Padre Rita Grill seemed to be a good choice and a wide variety of food. Well.... watch the video - the review tells you whether or not we recommend it or not. I know Brittain enjoyed her meal even better coming back up. ;-)

We used Groupon quite a bit on this trip and it saved us a fair amount of money.

In this video I give a short review of the Roland A-800 Pro Midi Controller and also go though how to connect and use it with the Tyros 4. If your looking for a quality Midi Controller that still comes with the 5 pin din connection, Roland is the place to look. Subscribe: http://... Check out our site: http://...

***Click here to get $30 off of your first order of Home Chef http://... *** It's been awhile since we've prepared any food box meals, so we decided to start back at it with some Home Chef. ;-) This episode, Tiana prepares Cape Town steak with sweety drop relish. with half-mashes peas and potatoes. It certainly wasn't Tiana's thing, but Robin and I both enjoyed it a lot, rating the meal a 7. :-)
So, after many months of contemplation and saving up, Jacob, along with Ayden, Caden & Carson, come and use my basement for the building extravaganza of Jake's incredible PC - the entire thing for under $1,500. :-) It took a *very* long time, and there were some headaches along the way, but the end product is fantastic. Plus, there were plenty of laughs over the duration of the project. ;-) We
So, I'm finally getting somewhere with my Yaesu FT-817nd HAM radio.

Just some things to consider and tips if you're in the market for your first HAM radio. I'm still glad with the choice of the 817nd, however the antenna it comes with is not going to do much. I bought a 2 meter Browning BR-159 antenna, and while in Des Moines I still wasn't picking up anything for quite awhile. What I've come to terms with is that, in a small place like where I live, you're going
The antenna that came with my 817nd, and the Diamond Antenna that I purchased, are both able to communicate with Newton's local repeater, however I don't believe these antennas are going to work indoors efficiently. So, I wanted to make my own antenna using speaker wire just to experiment with what else I can receive. The results were satisfying. ;-) #thejohnnyoshow #johnorjias #HAMRadio
An original composition, by John Orjias, performed using the Yamaha MO 6 and Cubase. The Race. Featuring the Jamaican sprinter, Usain St Leo Bolt. Regarded as the fastest human ever timed, he is the first man to hold both the 100 meters and 200 meters world records. Due to Usain Bolt's unprecedented dominance and achievements in the athletic field, he is widely considered the greatest sprinter
Excited, I received my license and first HAM radio: the Yaesu FT-817nd. I am very happy with it - it's very small and lightweight. Convenient to use. I go through an unboxing of the radio, and describe some of its features and components. I had a lot of trouble making my first contact, but lesson learned is to always call the repeater. Best place to start and won't leave you frustrated. Find

My 3 failed attempts at purchasing my first HAM radio. I have done a lot of research trying to pick out a good radio to start with, and while I wasn't satisfied with any of the options I currently have, I decided to go with the Yaesu FT-817nd... I'll give you some tips on what I've learned from my research. Check out http://... if you're in the market for a HAM radio. #thejohnnyoshow
In this video I take my Star Wars "A New Hope" theme cover and demonstrate how beneficial the Yamaha's Tyros 4 sync start/stop feature is. I show you how to use it and how it can provide you more creative control over styles while playing. #thejohnnyoshow #tyros #johnorjias #Tyros4 #StarWars #EpisodeVII #RogueOne #AStarWarsStory #Cover #ANewHope #tutorial Help us caption & translate this
A tribute to the Star Wars series as they release Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. I preform a cover of the main theme, "A New Hope," on my Yamaha Tyros 4. I'll also later post a tutorial video on how to use the sync start/stop feature on the Tyros, as was utilized in this cover. #thejohnnyoshow #tyros #Tyros4 #StarWars #ANewHope #RogueOne #AStarWarsStory #Episode8 #TheForceAwakens Subscribe:
