    Re: The Artist Rant

    So, I decided a while ago to stop choosing between writing and music. Because writing earns me more money, it naturally gets the bulk of my time, but my practices are also getting longer and longer. I seem to be able to do both simultaneously, but it's my social life that's dying.

    Its not about finding the "right path" but more so finding the path that's right for you

    Incredibly disgusted that, 25 years ago the motion picture character effects industry was driven on actual artistic talent - drawing, sculpture, model-making and painting. Back then, my dream was to graduate and become a concept/character artist for motion pictures.

    When I got to the point where I was in Uni, it no longer mattered how much natural talent I had. Anyone who could point-and-click with a mouse could create character/special effects art on a computer - no talent required. Now the field is so competitive because of all the "concept artists" out there that you have a ghost's chance in hell of breaking into the industry.

    I feel the same way about photography.

    That's kind of true in music as well, but it's also really easy to tell who's faking if you have any knowledge of the recording industry.

    "Oh hello Autotune..."

    "Oh, they used the Strike plugin instead of an actual drummer."

    "This Trigger preset sounds bad."


    My rant for the day: That moment when you start thinking you need a second 8-string guitar just so you can stop going back and forth between tunings.

    God yes.

    And don't even get me started on songwriting.

    This is more gloating than a rant:

    So five years ago, I ambitiously started a doom metal solo project. Couldn't record it until last November, when I finally got Pro Tools (after going to school to learn how to record like a pro). There's one song that I just did vocal recording for today that one of the verses I just could not think of how to do vocally. Then I had an a-ha moment and it came out better than I imagined it would!

    Lol, that's about right.

    While I usually have a lot of rants about my art, why what line isn't ending up where it ought to be and so forth, lately it's just that I haven't had any time to DO ANYTHING. -.- But that's more of a life rant. ^^
