Thanks for reading Wire to the Ear

Oliver's Office

Mostly I feel life is fairly even. When you count all the the good and evil things on the planet the ratio is about 50/50. I used to think this place was more evil but as I age I’m really starting to smell the roses. On the good vs evil scale I’d say these things outweigh each other: puppies vs murders, night swimming vs cancer, finishing a song vs taking SAT exams, falling in love vs drug addiction, etc… Maybe I shouldn’t look at things so black and white? My guess as I get old and go grey so will the way I see the world.

Earlier this week I finished a new song and a remix. At work I trained two new employees in Manhattan. I ate a lot of Turkey yesterday. This weekend I am buying a new couch and putting up my pink plastic Christmas tree. Next week I am going to Washington DC for a conference. My Christmas wish is that SoundCloud will let me upload full songs and then allow me to choose a 30 second clip of it to share to the world. To vote for that idea: click here

  5. PHEW!!! God I thought this was going to be one of those depressing ‘farewell’ posts when I first loaded the page! Thank god it’s not – this is a great blog, which I check everyday. I like reading stuff from someone that I know the music they make is the sortof thing I like.

    In regards to Soundcloud I’ll add my vote for that, I think im going to ask them to make another artwork size – suitable for signatures in forums – something like 400×100. I do really like the artwork view – and if you link to a set and have art on each (as I do on my myspace), it will change to them as background when you play. I like it cos I think it makes the music feel a bit more like a ‘single’ or something.

    Anywayz as usual I digress, I’m very glad this wasnt a farewell post :)
