  1. I have two warning points. They will never go away.

    Eventually there will be a third, designed to make me go away.

    13+ years at OCR will go down the drain.

    All loss and no gain.

    But that's life so fuck you and get used to it, lol.

     

  2. Hopefully NOW that subject is done and over with and I won't need that cover art again. This cover art is just a picture someone made of their email spam and put it on a T-shirt. I love shallow complexity that doesn't actually mean anything. <3

  3. Hello creeper! Yes, you know who you are. I can see that you keep checking my profile page for some reason. I don't know what it is you expect to find here, but I don't think it's going to arrive.

    You call yourself an audio professional, why not get a job or something already so you have something better to do with your time than creep me out? Go make some Kontakt scripts or something - it would be considerably less stalkerish. If that is not within your grasp to do, consider putting the following sentence into Google and see what comes back: "What does 'leave me the fuck alone' mean?"

  4. Are ye enjoying the book?

      I didn't write that book.

      ...did I? I'll have to check now...

  5. Hi there. Took me forever to find out who was offering help here.

    Let's talk some business on the project website. What's your email address?

      Hi Mateo,

      do you still need help?

  6. No, I saw it and wrote something inconsequential back. I greatly appreciate your patience.

  7. Hey Justin, I just wanted to ask if you'd been getting my AIM messages. They've mostly been excuses of why I hadn't gotten back to our collab yet, but I hadn't heard back from you in a while all the same.

    I'm almost finished with the backpay my workplace has owed me, so I think I'm within a couple weeks of getting back to your mastered version. I look back on it now and Winter was even worse this year than last, but I'm getting there. Thanks for your patience. :D

  8. Thomas, when you goin' to hit a brotha up? You too good to talk to me now that I'm half-black, half-white, half-asian and half-Samoan? Only one man in the history of assholes can accomplish being FOUR halves at once, and that man is Meteo X!

  9. I fixed that section of my post. I did not word that correctly. :P

  10. Usually it's some newbie in his mid 20s who clearly didn't learn anything from how hard recession hit Generation Y some years ago and wants to just jump right in and find his spot without doing any thinking, but now I'm finding I can barely tell the difference between an A-AAA composer that has a sizable fanbase and a 15-year-old wannabe in terms of their attitude and public maturity. I can now count the number of non-Japanese composers I respect on one hand.

    So, in the midst of my miasmatic ranting, usually I do lend what I genuinely believe is my best advice: Don't quit your day job. You can get a lot further quicker and safer doing music on your off-time and building credo without unnecessary pressures than you can putting everything on the line of whether or not you land that Activision gig. :D

  11. Actually, last year in November I was working on something that was designed to do just that. I was working on a huge "Alternative Guide to Music Success" that had my consummate negativity at the first 20% of it, and then the rest being going on to talk about what you can do that's proactive and potentially effective for getting music out there. I had to stop because my Winter got super fucked up, and when I tried to start it back up again, all the advertising stuff I was talking about had changed.

    I keep wanting to pick it back up again, but every time I'm about to, I find something online that makes me prefer I watch'em all burn.

  12. Part of that may be that I'm on anti-depressants and testosterone therapy now, but I also employ a strict honor system. I refuse to give up being cynical beyond the call of duty vis-a-vis the "industry", as I find not enough people really go into detail how hard it is to be a musician these days and therefore omit crucial information into attaining success these days, along with my respect of American composers continuing to slide off a cliff.

    At the same time, credit must be given where credit is due. It is right for all living things to be criticized for their willful insanity, and I am no exception. :D

  13. That picture was awesome. I've had that coming for quite some time. :D

  14. Well, I may be a huge, anti-charismatic cynical asshole, but I'm aware of it, and I encourage people to dig on me the same way I dig on others. I defend my cynicism and I continue to be cynical because I still feel people emphasize much more on how awesome it is to be an artist and make money doing what you love, and not enough on the grim realities that will be present whether people say it or not. People can believe in themselves and take risks all they want, it doesn't change that less than 10% of artists ever find any form of success with it with just the basic structure of how that works. If I don't be cynical, I feel I'm not being honest, and just telling people what they want to hear instead of what they need to hear.

    All the same - fair is fair, a good joke is a good joke, and I totally have earned that. :)

  15. Dude, that was fucking awesome. +50 respect. :D

  16. Hey-o. I will be out of town from July 3rd to the 8th and maybe unavailable for a couple days after that. What SD3 stuff do we need to get caught up on and working on until then?

  17. Hey Nathan. You're a decent dude and I respect you for that, but please don't be arrogant and rude while debating with people on my Facebook profile. As someone who brags about his music and accomplishments as much as you do, and with your willingness to talk about "people stuck in their way of thinking", I don't feel you're in a good position to be superior minded there.

    Please do not do that again. Thank you.

  18. When are you going to do some new remixes? OCR's been missing some Skrypnyk in its releases lately.

  19. Speak the King's English or GTFO. >:P

  20. When are you going to remix music again, you beautiful bastard? I'm turning 40 or 50 or something this month and I won't live forever.

  21. Someone better type me a ***damn public message and fill it with profanity or I'll tell you whut!

  22. I have crappy upgrade it seems. :P

  23. Hi there - are you still in the remixin' business?

  24. There you are. Did you sign the consent form for SD3 or is there anything else I need to catch up with you there?

  25. New WAV for you. Hit me up to get it.
