It's been a boring few weeks. Granted I've been in the studio doing music and making art, and "The Art of Transformation 2"
is selling well (thank you!), but I'm still bored. Maybe it's just as well. It's a snowstorm every other day, and the airport's been a nightmare. They literally had a thousand cancelled flights the other day at ORD, no shit. It was on the news.
I've been working on industrial tracks for LadyParasyte, whom you met on "The Art of Transformation 2." She's doing the vocals/lyrics. I'm excited to be working with her. I've always wanted to produce a full artist with an established image, fan base, etc.
I've also been doing some techno tracks. I'm wanting to make my big techno comeback this year after doing trip-hop, ambient, industrial and other music types.
Using my time off wisely, I enrolled in a design course this week. Photoshop and Illustrator. I mess around with both programs but I want to get good at them. I like working with designers, but I want to be able to express what's in my head the same way I can do by drawing. I want to make the total package. With the way money is these days you've got to be the one-man band.
I saw "Shaun of the Dead" last night. Yeah I know I'm late. It was the shit. Funny parts, action parts, gory parts, and the tightest script I've seen lately. The script hits on the same themes and lines, there's a lot of foreshadowing in it, and there's a tight pattern to it. Semiotic as hell. You have to see it to know what I'm talking about.
What do you think of Barack Obama's progress? I must say I've been surprised. I didn't think America had it in her. I've been amused at Derrick May's recent blog and the reactions to it. People are going insane. Read for yourself.

well i feel ya, i am not a fan of winter either and sometimes finds it dulls my senses and demotivates me. not good for creativity.
ok, so shaun of tha dead is one of my favourite movies! love that dialogue, tha dry british wit and some wicked one liners; "you've got red on you", "it's on random", and "it's not hip hop, it's electro", all much funnier in a british accent of course.
tha same producers made another film using those same two guys called "hot fuzz", not nearly as good, i wouldn't recommend it.
also, read that derrick my blog too. didn't have tha energy to get involved in that debate. ;)
nice one on expanding tha "alan oldham" brand!
