Impregnable and unable to get pregnant.

We are sorry to inform you that we must let you go. Your honesty and well mannered disposition and ability to work well with others is not appreciated here anymore.
I wont be worn down and I wont be stopped! Unless you tell me to. What is going on nowadays? There seems to be so little work out there even for the skilled and the trained or even the seasoned and the ones left working are sick and tired of a lot of their “positions”. Whaa waaa, I know. I’ll stop.

Things have changed significantly lately. I decided to reflect on the past on this entry because I am good at reflecting on things in the past I am told…
I remember when I was on a small “twee” label out of Alhambra Ca. just next to Pasadena California called Shmat. I had at the time not much musical experience under my belt. The Shmat label people were fun and they always created their own events like BBQ’s and parties where we could showcase our own new music and new bands that were brought on board in general. The actual music I had brought to the table at the time was also engineered by my , at the time new friend and acquaintance Andrew Lynch who is once again working with me now after so many years.
Shmat was fun , and Shmat was indie. I had a lot of great times but I eventually outgrew that type of music for myself and that sort of filtered genre in general and I dropped the band. The name of the band was called Awestruck Dumbfounded. Here are a few links below that are old but are still up mentioning Awestruck Dumbfounded.

Well,the most that was ever really done was to get 2 songs featured on a sampler but that sampler was great and the other bands on there were incredible including my friend Richard Cranache’s band Carte Blanche. They were fun simpler times. Not the beer…the times themselves.

More things to come in future entries. I really was excited to see that Us vs Them is featuring Valley my single on SoundCloud now. I realize that other social networks are becoming more important again in my opinion since I think Facebook is getting worn out. This is a good thing I suppose. We can’t live our lives on Facebook anymore! To the armory for an anti Facebook revolution! Light the torches and pass out the pitchforks…Or maybe instead I’ll post another blog entry to Facebook through WordPress. Hows that?

I have received your emails and understand your plight and what’s to be done. Nothing short of something more legal.

Bee Gees

In my time here on this planet I had never ever thought of the Bee Gees as anything else but disco. Boy was I wrong.
They had a couple of sounds over the years. One was of course their all famous disco sound of the late 70’s or 70’s in
general and the earlier sound was surprisingly a late 60’s pop sound similar in some respects to The Byrd’s or The Mammas And Papas in my view. Believe it.
How it was that I discovered this was one day I ventured into a Starbucks in downtown Los Angeles near FIDM fashion school
and heard music playing over the Starbucks overhead speakers. Nothing unusual as Starbucks has their own music internet
channel that streams into their stores referred to as Starbucks XM Café. I think this was strange at first but I listened
and liked what they were playing a lot. Then it happened. I heard some music akin to my ears like The Byrd’s Turn Turn Turn
with the soothing low BPM tempo and somewhat jangly sound mixed with high school fresh voices. I then listened more and
realized I didn’t know this song at all and tried to Shazaam it and of course I did not get the Shazaam going on time
which is what usually happens to me. At the end of that song there was a default message however that saved me. The
announcement, which was very generic, said I was just listening to The Bee Gees Every Christian Lion Hearted Man Will Show
You Bee Gees’ 1st (1967). Wow, I thought. What a long title but I remembered it and when I got to work I immediately looked
that song up on YouTube and then discovered a whole world of Bee Gees that I had not known about on the side bar for other
similar videos. Amazing. There was a whole collection besides that song of similarly done songs by the Bee Gees including
Holiday, which I love! Bee Gees’ 1st (1967). This song has been described as “haunting, even eerie, having been composed
primarily in the minor key with a strong organ presence” Which is something I have done with personal songs I have put together.
I personally liked this song and their style then.

I’ve got more work to do this week to get some music done. Let’s hope I can get it done in a timely manner.
I look forward to this new month. I am not too sure what it brings but it looks promising for myself.
My point is to not make this a dairy. This is a touchy subject with blogs isnt it? I really dont have the content to make this about music tonight. I just wanted to say what was said above.
Till next year.
