xd238 / Ken Shabby - livin' up in d-Attic
update on d-Attic.......... Happy (belated) New Year greetings to all ! I know many of you miss my long diatribes so l will make no actual attempt to keep this short. For shorter monthly(?) updates on where I am at, if you want to, you can check in on my profile: https://www.kompoz.com/music/artist/xd238 But if you want to keep reading....I can't stop you... Sadly, to start 2019, i am not at real liberty to discuss any progress on d-Attic, which some might say right now is an ugly (and quite chilly) glorified crawl space where most of my music gear is, in boxes. I haven't posted any tracks for months. Life and family have dealt me continued setbacks and I have been facing several obstacles in making any real progress. The truth is, (and I am very concerned about the truth) my press agent and all of my lawyers are advising me not to discuss any progress whatsoever on (my mom's) said attic. Absolutely and completely. I've already had to fire several of my handlers over this...its getting kinda crazy here. I wish they would all go away and the space was completed so I could create again like the "true artist I am." (Feel free to chuckle at this point) As they say, to borrow a cliche-(which I hate btw, I hate most if not all cliches...) "Rome was not built in day" Or a month. Or several months, so I have found. What can I say? Life sucks and then you fall down the stairs. I haven't done that yet, but...well... I did have a mishap with a high-speed nail head. I was demolishing the old railing to the stairs and as it turned out its main support was an original 100 year old wooden stud from the original construction. One of the nails I needed to pull out completely shattered and the nailhead piece had a collision with my forehead. Good thing it wasnt an eye...I'm fine. Imagine a crusty old nailhead flying at your forehead at light speed though. It all happened so fast though and it made me dizzy. Although some would say that is just normally the way I am.... Anyway, rest assured, I will give another non-update in Community when my advisors tell me its ok. Honestly I couldn't tell you how long if I tried. I am simply not in control of a lot of this, but hopefully things are starting to come around. I've been trying everything. Through a friend here I thought I had a lead on an affordable temporary space where I could at least work on mixing stuff down while I was finishing up the attic.It turned out to be worse. Like an uninsulated motor home. Unbelievable... (!) So I am trying to think of ways to make part of d-Attic functional for music while I finish setting it up fully.( And clean up after the polecats. Yuck) I must tell all of you that almost everyone I pay to tell me what to do told me not to say even that which I said just there above. But wtf, I get literally hundreds (at times thousands) of emails a day asking when I will be back collaborating on kompoz. If I did something wrong by posting this , well then, I apologize. Profusely. Isn't an apology enough anymore? No one remembers how to apologize anymore. Everyone has lost their manners and everything has gone to sh*t while people stare into their phones as life goes by. And the polar ice-cap melts away At least Ken Shabby knows how to apologize. And to all of my collaborators, sorry, again. I will be back posting tracks soon enough. In Millennial speak this situation is like, omg, literally killing me. I can't even...
