"always the things we make up to explain what happened, not the actual cause of what happened. Whether it’s the bird that just messed up your new car wash or the job that you didn’t get because a thousand people applied, there’s a lot more randomness in the world than we’d care to admit.
There are two things to be done with that fact. The first is to identify the few things that do happen for a reason and learn from them, as opposed to ignoring the available lesson. When cause and effect is at work, figuring out the cause is the single best way to manage the effect.
And the second is to take the (essentially) random events and choose to respond (as opposed to an overreaction). The big opportunity is to figure out how to take advantage of the change that was just handed to us, even if it wasn’t for us, about us, or what we were hoping for.” - Kind of a weird post to be on a business blog but either way a great post.
I’ve been here in Nashville for about 6 months and have been thinking about ways I can raise money to start recording more/better sounding versions of songs I am writing. I had thought about maybe making a pledge music campaign or a kickstarter but feel like there are so many artists you love already doing that. So instead I have decided to release some demos I’ve been sitting on for a long time, some you’ve never heard before and some I’ve posted on my blog! Alongside of the demos will also be some cool experiences/opportunities to work alongside a few of you on making music together.
The money I raise will be used to buy more equipment and help pay some of the expenses of living here in Nashville so I can start focusing more on writing and releasing music!
Here is a link to all of the demos I posted:
Here is a link to my Song Store where you can purchase CUSTOM songs from me:
I’ll be posting up opportunities to write songs (either over Skype or in person) with me as well next week!
There are THREE different EP’s worth of demos. I priced all of the EP’s pretty cheap with an option to pay more if you’d like.
In the Song Store there are 6 songs available. They go pretty quickly and take a little time to finish so it’ll probably be a pretty good amount of time before I open it up again after this! They make great gifts! Especially with Mothers/Fathers day coming up! :)
Please reblog if you have a chance, it would really help out! Can’t wait to release more music to all of you!
Who remembers these books?
Probably some of the scariest children’s literature we remember. We wanted to do something a little special this Halloween so we picked one of the scariest stories we remember reading as kids and we’re gonna read it to YOU. (Special effects compliments of Mr. de Torres.)
Also, we’re going to be watching who reblogs this nugget of horror and gift any scary iTunes movie to one lucky person who reblogs or shares this on Facebook to share in the scariness of All Hallows’ Eve. We’ll announce the winner tonight at 8pm PST.
Be safe tonight!
Love, Eric & Andrew
