of course I mean "demo" grade studio... just writing songs, doing the sheet music and a demo, registering it all through the proper channels and then moving on... kinda like the stock market... you don't know when if ever you will see any return , but you will never see any royalties if you never put a product out there...I wish I had been more aware of the process years ago, I might actually be seeing some results by now... but , as it is, this is where the journey begins
well theres good news and theres bad news.... the good news is that after many hours of long distance conversation we have all agreed on building my own studio... the bad news is that means I'm not going away, although I will withdraw somewhat, to focus on what I'm doing, but the forum will always be close by...muwahahahahaa
Meh, not impressed...If I opened up a stand and called it "Raven's Hamburger Stand" and then sat around and laughed my butt off at all the fools who showed up trying to buy a hamburger, when anybody who was anybody should know that I really sell used spark plugs, i would say that my life had reached an all time low... but thats just me... whatever floats your boat...
how do you explain the video?
Doc, its only a scratch...
I'll be better doc, as soon as I am able...
(new format is a bit confusing, for adding media)
If we do loose touch for a while, as things happens , I just want to say...
didn't all go the way I hoped it would have , but theres no time to dwell on that crap now, we've got new stuff on the way...
I did really manage to catch these guys at the 9:30 Club back in,,. oh, I think around 90', or 91' , right around the same time that I started doing the things that makes one forget entire decades at a time...
I wear a shirt that cost a dollar 25, I know I'm the best dressed man alive....
let's go down the dime store, 'round midnight, and look at the rain
There were other people in that video???
no one that really matters....
Is God perfect?
Meh, close enough. Have mmmmmercy...
she is hot, but it looks like she's got her dad and her uncle playing in the band...thats lame, she should hire some muppets, they're much cuter and less opinionated.
with a little luck and a little help, we might get bak to where we were in the 80's....
I'm not trying to follow the status quo.. .its a different time nowdays ...
and since I can't share samples of new music now, due to various reasons...
I would say that its all gone in really different directions... one of them is kinda like "thirty days in hole", which Is not what I hope this all leading up to..cheers
well, ya know....
...I know little about livin' in Dad's shadow...
If I fail its to be expected, If I succeed its to be expected ... you just can't win.; and my Father is just a small time player in the game, and I guess I'm in the game too... these days....
anyway, my point is, if your old man happens to be someone as significant in history as Kirby Hensley, or even if he was just a guy who worked with alot of famous people in studios and what not..... one reality I have observed is that, you're gonna carry that weight , a long time
It's easier for me than others, but its just a microcsom to macrocosm kinda thing.. . all is relative to its own scale ... life's not easy for anyone
I guess I just thought things were going better for you...I guess we can't all be riding a wave of success in the midst of an economic downturn, can we?
Come on Dude, your in Vegas, are you going to tell me there is no money to be made out there?
well since its story telling time..here's an old song I can remember my friend saying "shut up Brian and listen to the lyrics"...
...so with all due respect to ya'll..shut up and listen to the lyrics.... before the deluge
hah, and they said we'd never make it.....
now you're a big shot Bishop and I..umm..do whatever it is I do but it seems to be paying the bills...
come here Watson, and look very carefully through the instrument...can't you see..
well, I guess there are no more pics of this virtual world...I can see where it may be interesting but probably also time consuming, like anything that has to do with computers.
and hell is the next morning..after a night in the air conditioning you can really feel the sunburn and those sore joints just get stiffer...it'll all go away once I get out there and break a sweat, get moving around again..
100 degree heat? 100 percent humidity? Air pollution, noise pollution, traffic jams, you know its summer in the city
Heaven is just lying here in my apartment, listening to the radio...feeling so helpless
just change "North Ontario' with "Any Town, USA", and you've got the same 'ol story over and over again....
Back to work tommorrow, but that's another day...
ahhh, air conditioning..cozy couch...
Ya'll didn't really think I was sleeping in motels the whole time I was gone did ya?
overslept, running late as usual, not leaving a vacation min you, this is hard work, several jobs in different places...fun stuff...
Virtual world is interesting, bit I travel through so many different worlds as it is..I'm was wondering if you could posts some pics here..seems the thread for it.
The best part of being gone for a couple days is when I get back there should be lots of new posts. Take care, see ya in a couple of days.

this has been a unique year...40 is not so bad, its kinda like reaching a rest area on a long trip... you stop and look around and think "wow, I really made it this far, when I was a teenager I thought I'd be dead by now"... and that wasn't so far from becoming the truth, and sadly, some of people I really could trust and could really talk to, didn't make it this far... its left me surrounded by strangers, alone in the crowd, most of the folks I would turn to and say 'do you remember when..." are dead now, or moved off, or locked up... the new people ...meh... not like it used to be.. .everyone is so dang high up now that they are just plain worthless to me, other than signing the checks...
make any sense? Probably not... Jimmy Buffet can explain it better
