also brand new is the ShoutBox. just leave me a message or two.

another new thing: a blog counter! from now on I see how many people really like my blog.

and now the news: I will take part in RPM ’09. RPM is a project in which you have to record a complete album in just the 28 days of February. I wanted to join this project already last year but I had no time to finish enough stuff. It has not be THE album but AN album, as it says on the website. unfortunatly the stuff I finished last year wasn‘t even good enough for AN album if you know what I mean. the album is supposed to be written and recorded in February and only in February. by the 1st of March it has to be send to the USA. burnt on a CD.

I hope I can finish enough material. for this project every artist has to produce at least 35 minutes. that is a lot. with let us say 10 songs that means an average length of 3:30 minutes. that is a lot of work to do.

last year I calculated that I had to finish 1:15 minutes per day. a little wrong because I have to add the time the CD needs to arrive the USA. let’s say it takes a week (even though I already received mail from the USA within 2 days) then I would have to finish 1:40 minutes each day. it is possible. I don‘t doubt that. in fact you never just produce one or two minutes in one sit.
normally I finish a song with an average quality in about two days. the rest of the time I need for finishing a song is just polishing and fixing. depending on how long it takes to finish the song themselves I can spend one or two days with polishing.

yes I really think that it is possible to finish AN album in less than 28 days. it is a challenge but it is possible. hope I can manage my normal work (I told you about it yesterday). I have to finish three articles for lotek64 and I still have to do a lot of work to my album… well, well… let’s wait and see. otherwise I just put my finger into my anus and sing „Old McDonald“ for half an hour :p mmmmh… I like this thought…

ehm, ya… follow the ufo, later MM

time for an update

I didn‘t write a blog for a very long time. I was so busy with other things that I wasn‘t able to do it. first of all there was the christmas compo thingy which I had to finish. this was a lot of work and I was happy when Michael had put it on the site. we got a lot of downloads (about 2400 till the end of December) so I guess we can call this release as a sucess.

then writing for lotek64 which means listening to music and playing videogames. actually these are the things I normally do. but the writing of the articles adds an extra need of time. then producing music of course. in the last weeks I often was too busy to write new songs. that may be caused by playing too much „Little Big Planet“ with my brother. additionally I was sick around christmas. I caught a big bad cold. with coughing, a slimy nose, aching throat… you know, the complete program. on Christmas Eve I was sitting in my Grandma’s living room (we celebrated christmas at my grandma’s place last year), drunk from the 2 Grogs (that is hot water with rum) that were supposed to help me sleep. but actually they just made me drunk too fast. and in the end I wasn‘t able to sleep until 5 o‘clock in the morning. and when I woke up I had slept like 3 or 4 hours. the cold was gone on Sunday after Christmas. so christmas was sort of ruined last year. and half of my days off also were.

I started making new tracks in the new year which was a good decission. in the meantime I was able to get some new sources of inspiration. and writing songs works again.

sooooo which releases did I have recently… well… I dunno… wait… of course my small EP in November 08 called „ektodermis/endodermis“ which I made with Danny from XXS. get it at Pixelmod Records.

then on the same label we released the awesome christmas compo 08. ok it actually is a little tittle late for xmas but … Pixelmod Records

another release is the Vocal compo at Calmdownkidder Records. we had to sing on it.

guess this was all… yep. I will update the discography page as soon as possible which means… I dunno… maybe never.

cu and don‘t forget to follow the little red UFO ;)
