When I was a kid, music was absolutely everything to me. I had some very encouraging early ‘successes’ and was building toward independently selling my recordings as downloads on my own web site, rather than be under contract to a record company… It is said that men make plans, and god laughs. 😐 That was Plan A, and it almost worked...
Along the way I married, had 2 kids, internet file sharing happened, music became free and Plan A hit the financial wall. In the day, there were few options to host your own web site, so I started a private tech company (GoodMedia), fast forward to today and as a recent “empty nester”, I can record music again without the need to sell it, or depend on the government. 🙂
To this day I can still read and write quite fluently, in English and Music. 🎼
So then, where’s all my latest music ? Yeah, well… I’m working on it. I still have my music from the 1980s, but compared to when I started recording on tape, my current digital recording technology, while being absolutely awesome, is also a rabbit hole of infinite choices that changes with every software update. Vintage recording tech and it's hallowed specs that once cost a fortune, is basically available now to anyone with just an iPad. Music, now free, still holds an intangible value for most. For me, it's a permanent side gig. 🙂
I received full custody of my 2 kids when they were little and thus, I have prepared 3 meals a day for many years… Not any more; the little birds have grown and flown. It’s a bigger change than I was prepared for; I miss confidently cooking for them, where I know all their quirky little individual preferences; to then offer up comfort food that warms and nourishes their souls...❤️
I can be complicated, though predictable where it’s important. I’m a guy who can be totally in the moment with you, but only with an equal effort. The paradox is that true “chemistry" is basically effortless. I’m a good man who is quite aware, is definitely listening to you, and is ultimately just looking for ways to see you smile and bring happiness into your world. Not complicated. 😎
Joy ?; …cool tech, writing and recording music, quality audio. 🎹
My Golden Rule ?; Words matter, Actions matter More. 👈🏼
My Dream Job ?; Landing military jets on aircraft carriers / Drifting F1 cars on a banked track, for the record. 🏎
I spend a lot of time thinking about ?; …ways to refine and improve the things I do every day. 😎
When I die, I will ?; …not exist. Which is why I love all life, except the local raccoons, most squirrels… and then there's that barking dog up the block… 🙂
