xd238 / Ken Shabby - livin' up in d-Attic 2mo+7dy ago
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...

As a concerned co-member of Kompoz..I am giving you the following advice totally free of charge... You must fire your advisers immediately! Use the surplus money to frequent local drinking establishments. Befriend some hapless barfly...convince this individual that it would be to his/her advantage to provide you with a clean, warm and dry space with proper electrical connectivity (possibly free wi-fi) that would be adequate for accommodating the equipment for a "Nashville Class" recording studio. Assure them that after you have recorded (in said space) what is sure to be a worldwide musical sensation...you will gladly contract to them the rights to receive a 10% royalty from all financial proceeds (after expenses of course). This assurance will surely belay any doubts they may have. If this does not work, then tap your honorary Kompoz brush against a two-by-four stud three times....this will transport you to Kansas where you will be led by a witch, to a horse stall in the back of a barn, free to use for whatever purpose you wish...see the possibilities...?

I've been carefully considering your suggestion Thomas... one problemo tho.... the local barfly would never have free wifi. Otherwise I think this is a go and I will be right on it. :D

hey xt thanks for checking in... I've actually never seen a cow but I often become a giraffe that says "moo, I'm a goat" they even made a t-shirt for that - so I must be normal, right?? https://d3qdvvkm3r2z1i.cloudfront.net/media/catalog/product/cache/1/image/1800x/6b9ffbf72458f4fd2d3cb995d92e8889/m/o/mooimagoat_fullpic_artwork.jpg
