54: One Year Later

Wow. It’s been one year. ONE YEAR! Holy crap. I know I keep saying this but wow. The album that I have ready to release in June has been waiting for over 2 years to be released and that’s ridiculous. Finally though this thing I call my album is taking shape into something wonderful. WONDERFUL.

The Art Show at which I’ll be selling my album has been moved up to June 2 which will be the release of my physical album which today got a new cover AND an extra bonus track.

I decided that the cover for the physical and digital release are going to be the same except that the physical release has the words “Special Edition” by the “ZW” logo.

Another thing that happened today. I decided that a song that I wrote AFTER I created the final track listing was just too good to miss out of being on my album so I’m going to record that and it’ll make it’s debut on my debut. It’s called “Congratulate You” and I’m excited for it, obviously. That song will be put on the end of the album making it the 12th track overall on the special edition and 10th track overall on the digital standard release.

One more piece of fun. I’m going to be selling the physical album for $10 and $2 of that will go to the Save the Music Foundation. You can visit their website and learn about all the good they do here.

I hope to see you June 2nd and I hope you bring $10 to support both me and a wonderful organization. Remember the special physical edition is limited to 100 copies ONLY so get there quick!!!! 🙂

53

It’s almost my one year anniversary of this blog. That’s a long time for me. Anyways. This is a short one because I don’t really have much to say but I’ll link you to the first official single from my very first album which comes out in a little over one month. I have some work ahead of me, planning for this thing. I’m also going to tell you that I cannot wait for you to hear this album. I’m proud of the one half that I have done and I know the second half is going to be even better!

52: It’s Been Far Too Long

I haven’t blogged in a while. So I feel like I have a lot to say about a lot of stuff.

First off. The Celebrity Apprentice. I know I’m a couple days late on my opinions but seriously. If Lisa Lampanelli wins this show I will have heart failure and it’ll be a better experience than watching her take out her jealousy on Dayana Mendoza.

If Lisa would take a few steps back and realize that she and Aubrey O’Day (another story) are the ONLY ones that think that Dayana is a waste of space and always in people’s way, they’d realize they are completely, utterly wrong. The clip below is mild compared to what this evil, jealous woman has put Dayana through.

Also, why? WHY DOES LISA THINK SHE’S SO F’ING GREAT WHEN SHE’S ONLY WON THREE OUT OF TEN CHALLENGES!!!??? TELL ME! PLEASE IF SOMEONE HAS A LOGICAL EXPLANATION I NEED IT!

And Aubrey. You’ve proved to be one of the most unlikable women in America. Everything. Everything. Everything MUST be about you. That’s why you broke up an entire band. That’s why one of the most influential men in music FIRED you from his band. That’s why NO ONE (except Lisa) wants to work with you on Celebrity Apprentice. It was blood boiling at first that everything was “Me me me me me me me, I’m so great” but when Teresa won her task and Donald asked her what her charity was and why it was so important…. YOU ANSWERED. SICKENING. WHY CAN YOU NOT LET ANYONE HAVE THEIR MOMENT?

I know the clip is long. But to get an idea of the stupid, just watch the first minute or two. You’ll get sucked in.

Basically, someone, Arsenio Hall, calls her out on her absolute b.s. she cries, proceeds to ask Teresa if she, Aubrey, has “taught her everything she knows” and then Donald Trump says that’s a negative statement. She quits. Go home. Stay home. Go break up another band. Don’t come back. Oh wait, she does. Great.

Moving on from the mean and stupid. Let’s talk about spring music. I’ve already told you about Sarah Jaffe’s new album which releases next week!!!! I’ve pre-listened to the album on NPR and it’s great. Such a great direction she’s moved in.

Next, is an album I’ve been waiting for since 8th grade. And finally. It’s here on May 1.

Santigold: Master of My Make-Believe is gonna be such a great album. Better be the best album I’ve heard in awhile since I’ve waited four long years. I’ve heard three tracks from the album: “GO!”, “Big Mouth”, and “Disparate Youth”.

“Big Mouth” not my favorite but the other two songs are soo great.

Next:
I’m gonna crap myself from excitement. NO JOKE. This woman is a goddess. Seriously. I absolutely cannot wait for this album. Her previous five album just topped themselves as they came out, (except for her second album). Soviet Kitsch was great, Begin to Hope was amazing, Far was superb and What We Saw From the Cheap Seats is gonna follow right along with that trend. I can tell. It’s a long wait, May 23, but I think I can make it. I hope I can make it. Regina Spektor ❤

So concludes my Celebrity Apprentice rant and love of music rant. I’ll be back sooner than later to give you album updates. Also, it’s my one year anniversary for this blog in about a week. So. Be there, or be square.
