Labtoy Music released their latest compilation today and your truly made it on the compilation with a new song called “eMOTION SICKNESS” the title was borrowed from my friend Kevin Philips of Broken_Beyond_Repair and so were the lyrics. Give the album a listen and buy it if you like it!
So my record label (the contracts aren’t signed yet so I haven’t officially announced it yet) got me a website to create a greater presences on the intertube. So I’m sitting down and trying to figure out how to build a website. Can I be honest with you here for a second, I HAVE ABSOLUTELY NO IDEA WHAT I’M DOING. I feel like an elderly person trying to check their voice mail on a smart phone. This sucks. Not to mention I have no idea what programs there are to help and what I should be doing with them and where and if I should trust the web at all or if it’s all a trap to get me to join the dark side… Oh did you hear that J.J. Abrams is going to direct the next Star Wars movie… bad ass… squirrel… what where?
Tangent, see I’m trying. A lot of times I like to sit down and reverse engineer stuff if I don’t get it but honestly I’m trying to look at the coding that Jeremy did for me for the very simple background that’s up there and I have no idea how he did it. I think he’s using magic.
But I would like to learn. Seriously, I really want to learn so I can add it to my skills as I move forward in my job search.
OK, time to hit the sack and begin another day of job hunting and being Mr. Mom! If anyone has any advice on how to help me, I’m all eyes.
I love listening to music while I work. Here is some inspiration from Spotify:
So I started working on a way to make the professional site more creative last night and on top of that show off a bit more of who I am and what I like. I wasn’t real pleased with the turn out thus far, but I kept the Hershell Gordon Lewis in my thoughts as I tried to build the graphics. I’ll work on it some more tonight and see what I can come up with….
During this down time between jobs I’m thinking of working more on learning some new techniques in photoshop, I think I’ll play around with some family photos and see what I can come up with. I’m also going to look into doing some logo design work and see what my hands can come up with in a digital format.
I’m also trying to figure out ways of incorporating the smart phone with the use of the Cam Scanner on it as well and combine the hand held world with the world of photoshop.
