OMFG I'm Soooo Late

Tuesday, January 9, 2024

Happy New Year everyone and yes I'm definitely late to the party. This is not the first time not updating anything during the first week of the year, but as of late I've been making a lot of progress on just everything that I'm involved in. And considering what I'm working on it's just been exciting that I'm starting the New Year trying to be creative as best I can.

The first day of the year this sees a release and continues the ongoing momentum that I'm trying to keep at for 2024. Honestly a lot of my release runs from 2023 was wild and I think I'm happy to know that I can do something this crazy for the foreseeable future. I'm hoping to find myself focused on the bigger projects this year and to release some singles here and there just for fun.

I realized that projects can be finished on the LST LVS angle. I intend to keep this for the longest time considering my images don't have enough power to stand alone. And you know what? That's okay. I'm happy that I'm continuing this feat.

And that's just reallly it for me for 2024. My intention for this year is to keep the momentum going for this project. There are a couple of things that I'm trying differently this year though:

DigiCam Project
Last year I was able to find a "DigiCam" that was good enough not only to shoot pictures, but to print out images at a reasonable size (it can almost print out to 8.5 x 11). The latitude of data is good enough to bring back some details in the highlights and shadows with the current camera raw software that I have. Since it can shoot in TIFF the images generate pretty well in Adobe Camera Raw. My angle is to photograph in black in white all year. Lets see if that lasts lol.

Lately I've been trying to figure out different ways to write guitar parts. Metronomes have been something I've been very curious about working with in which could help me stay strict on writing than going to outer space with just noodling around all the time. I want to become a better player and this could perhaps help me get there by working on my timing. I'm timing deficient and I think it's one of my weaknesses as a player.

Other than that I'm not really pushing anything else different as I continue to try and write for my full length in the morning, attend Muay Thai classes and eat a bit healthier. Keeping at it and just figuring it all out.

I did end up having to be an official state worker here in Connecticut and now my schedule to work from home is 60 - 40%. I get more time to record in certain weeks so this'll be my chance to get more done.

I hope you all had a wonderfull New Year. Keep at it with the resolutions. This is the time to fail for sure and a time to learn what works and what doesn't work.
