I lived in a box of torment. With distortion, it beveled and bent. A few pounds here and another few there, what was the difference? I liked the way I felt. If only to ignore that the main focal source, be my obsession of achieving personal perfection. That box from hell had spared no light. As if +Leonard Cohen had forgotten to write his Anthem's most important line. He describes our beauty, that sometime can only be recognized in the spaces between our words. «There is a crack in everything. That’s h_ow the light gets in» - Leonard Cohen
I am so excited to announce that my album is complete! Front to back, Head to toe, Side to side. I wanted to post ads for all my old albums, so that I can re-release the first two albums as a best of. That collection is already being called the
«IAM Virginia, That One Girl Mystery>> And quote, "Discs will turn into coasters. It's inevitable. Even the top artists of our time have cd's out there that people have turned into coasters". Just waiting for the approval on the compilation so that i can claim the copyrights without any confusion.
In the mean time, please visit the «MM Store» or «Mixed-Media Store» where you’ll find the new double album entitled, Hush Underground. All my work online is kept secret to the best of my ability until the actual release. So, now you know. Go check it out. Both volumes come with their own unique artwork and lyric spreads. Which means, if you actually purchase a physical CD, you get two coasters as well, already built in. You can donate as little or as much as you want, however, there is a $1 minimum for any downloaded album, suggested minimum donation, payable through PayPal.com or by way of email with any one of my other merchant accounts. Of course, Paypal has made some major strides, but I understand if there are still some skeptics. Either way, your donation is tax deductible and secure. If it doesn’t work out, I’ll have to go back to the traditional .99/song.
But just like anything else, not all art, not all music and nothing in this world is created equal. So, some songs are worth a little more. I just can't decide how much one song is worth for everyone. We're all way too different. Anyways, it's good in theory, let's test it out and see how people respond. Will they pay more that the $1.00 for their favorite song?
Honestly? I don't care what calendar or time frame anyone else is on. I'm on my own and you know what? I still look 8-10 years younger than I am. So, maybe there's something to say about time travel. Or time lapse. Or maybe I really died at the age of ten from falling on my head. Let's see, 1991 is about when Bush Senior was president, and that is about the time they discussed cloning sheep. Anyways, it's not that far off an idea. If there's anything strange about all this, it's how the government is in its own little time zone and we have absolutely no idea what time that is. They could have their calendars set back to 1876. What the heck do we know? All I know is that, sure, I can still be living in December of 2012 just because I didn't get what I wanted for Christmas. I'll just have to hope it goes my way the second time around ; ) But when taxes are due, I better not show up fashionably late. Fortunately, I don't get paid for anything, so I don't really have to be on time for that either. So, if anyone wants to sync up with me, it's about 3:47am, December 14, 2012. I didn't want to miss out on anything for the year, especially awarding the Grammy's. Boy are they going to be in for a surprise when I tell them the real winners! Same goes for the Golden Globes and Academy Awards.
I'll be moving out to Cali soon I guess. All my work here is done and it's time to move on. I'm a little upset however, that every time I make a move, the people who say they'll be there for me, always end up bolting or somehow disappearing. That being the case, I'll be either heading towards San Diego of closer to San Francisco. If I can't have friends, at least I can have family. Nonetheless, I'm looking forward to gettin' out of this ol' Brickleberry town. I know Cartman will be upset when he finds out I'm not moving up to South Park, Colorado. But, you know, cartoons kind of have to stick with other cartoons. I think it's an unwritten law unless you're Jessica Rabbit. Then you can do whatever you want. The scariest thing about all my travels is when things start to go backwards or sideways. I don't think anyone knows how to menuever those directions. So, as my first pointless blog for this site, I wanted to just mention that I'm happy you're here. I hope you decide to stick around. We have coffee in the back and free pamphlets for the taking. If anyone is ever looking for me, I'll just be slightly behind the times, catching up on all the deadlines I've missed.
Merry Almost Christmas and may Santa make all your holiday wishes come true!
