Hey, Why So Quiet?

So while everyone else has been out exercising and running, I've been doing the exact opposite. Sitting around while watching TV, eating nothing but sliced bread with turkey, drinking cheap frat party beer and overpriced handles, but having a ton of fun while doing it. After drunk dialing the world and pulling an Ant and forgetting everything that happened the night before, I spend the next day drinking water and soaking up whatever is left in my stomach. The day consists of thinking about doing something productive, but alas, nothing happens.

I've hit that final stretch in the school year. Final project season is in full swing and I feel like I'm ahead of the game which is always good. I plan on knocking out a bunch of my projects this week so I don't become a panicking college student, struggling to paste together shit on the last minute. I can count my days left in Boston on my fingers and toes, and damn I can't wait to get back home. Less than 20 days till I can get my fat self to Cotijas and order up a hash brown burrito and 2 fish tacos, and after eating nothing but sandwiches and pizza nothing sounds better than good, SD style mexican food.

My free time goes to watching shows (30 Rock was so funny) and playing video games, but lately a lot of creative effort has been going into audio production, not just playing piano but doing the whole underground producer thing and making beats and sampling things left and right. After taking a bit of time to look back on the year I realize that I've learned so much not only in music history and theory, but in my goals as an artist as well. As soon as I tell myself that I know exactly what I want to do, more and more doors start to open, more ideas start to flow, more sounds start to come up in my head, and it's all extremely exciting. Next year I'm moving into an apartment with 2 of my friends up here, and we share similar musical styles and we're all into creating and developing ideas, so I'm pretty excited to see what kind of madness develops down the line.

So yeah, that's what I've been up to, hopefully I'll be able to balance my time better in the next few weeks, and I've had a couple features floating around that I might get to soon. Later days everyone.

  1. makin beats sounds like a lot more fun than watching someone have a camera shoved up their ass.
