Updated: March 8th, 2014 - the site is live and there's a new piece of writing.
No, I haven't had a mental breakdown; this is just part of the life-simplifying process.
I've taken a page out of
Leo's book and have stripped everything down to the barest essentials.
I'll still make music and write, but I have no more interest in fumbling through self-promotion.
Creativity has always been my focus, so I'll create and share without excessive online noise.
My biggest setback was attempting to attach money to my creations, so I'm done with that.
Concatenation Records isn't going anywhere, but that will go "pay as you like" in the future.
I need to finish transfering it to
Bandcamp first, which I'm in the process of.
I've still got around 45 releases to go, so I'm hoping to finish up before summer.
I'm still homebrewing, but I don't feel the need to get extensive about it any more.
I'm going to do an article about my process in the future and update it as it changes.
As far as brews go, I just finished an English Strong and it's fermenting well so far.
After that, I'm looking to do a rum and cherry liqueur-infused stout.
With six months of aging before fall, it should settle out really nice.
I'm also ready to try new forms of fermentation, so I'm excited to get going on that.
Kefir is my next goal, with kombucha, pickles, sauerkraut, and vinegar on the horizon.
I've been reading Atlas Shrugged for the past couple of months and it's been a real eye-opener.
I'll write something about it once I finish, as I see some parallels that interest me.
I'm also diving head first into permaculture and plan to grow a lot more than usual this year.
The process will require lots of yard prep once the weather gets better, but I'm ready.
To conclude, new material will be posted at the top of the page once completed.
I'll add the date updated, so it'll be easy to tell when something new is posted.
And if you're gonna let 'em see you, let 'em see you smile.
