Computer is dead

Well I apologize for not being a little more active. My computer died on my and just was fixed today by the Dell people. My internet is still down though. Im typing on my roomate's computer. Gah its frustrating.

Frustration

I have become increasingly frustrated with my musical endeavors as of late. I just cannot seem to come up with any ideas creatively. I sit in front of my gear staring at it as if it was brand new and I never have used it before. I cant seem to kick myself in the butt to really get something going musically.

This problem could be for the fact that I am at a pinnacle point of change. I am going to graduate college in about a month, and I'm changing schools across the state to go to graduate college. I'm fairly stressed about this I must admit, and worried about my work load for the next year or so.

I've decided musically I want to pursue some albums and have those pressed and released independently. This I believe is what I want to focus on for the next year or so musically. I'm thinking of limiting my net releases of songs because of this fact and maybe try to recoup some of the vast expenses I have undertaken for this joyous hobby of mine.

I suppose we will see where the dice fall. It is best not to force creativity when it isn't needed. It will come back in due time. Lets just hope sooner rather then later.

OMG the Cable is Out!!!

Well our cable Tv went out at my house this evening. You should hear how quiet it is here. It is quite amazing how dependant people seem to be on TV. Most of my family is roaming around the house trying to figure something to do with themselves.
I suggested a board game and no one seemed to be to keen on that idea. Quite amazing at how empty our lives seem if we aren't focused around the TV. The family gathering of the evening is actually a gathering around the glowing tube of doom.

I suppose I'm being slightly hypocritical though, I mean after all Im sitting infront of a computer typing this because the TV is out. If the internet was down to I would probably be just as lost as the rest of my family seems to be at the moment.

A Change of Musical Direction

I have come to realize over the past few months that my current musical prospects with M.A.S. Productions, and my current music methods of working have come to a stalemate. I think I am currently sapped dry of creative ideas with my current musical project as M.A.S. Productions.

I have decided to wrap up a few pieces with the M.A.S. Productions moniker, namely the Classica series and one more track tentatively named AWE.

I am going to change directions musically over the next few months to year and concentrate more on my live project Dynamic Interplay, and also delve into 8 bit music.

I may leave M.A.S. Productions on hold for the next year or so, or I may retire the moniker under that name indefinitely and continue with new projects under new names. The M.A.S. Productions website will remain the base for all of project outlets, but I will not produce specifically as M.A.S. any longer. Project names will take on their own identities and movements.

Tattoos

I just watched a fascinating documentary on TLC about tattoos and the art and expression of tattooing. My whole life I have been really intrigued by tattoos, and always have been curious as to getting one myself. Fanciful wishing or maybe a dream to think about. We'll have to see.
