Get to know me meme: (1/5) favourite tv shows » Game of Thrones

Oh, my sweet summer child. What do you know about fear? Fear is for the winter when the snows fall a hundred feet deep. Fear is for the the long nights when the sun hides for years, and children are born and live and die, all in darkness. That is the time for fear, my little lord; when the white walkers move through the woods. Thousands of years ago there came a night that lasted a generation. Kings froze to death in their castles, same as the shepherds in their huts, and women smothered their babies rather than see them starve, and wept and felt their tears freeze on their cheeks. So is this the sort of story that you like?

Plaintiff Matthews was confronted by approximately eight Defendant John Doe police officers in military type uniforms who had their weapons trained upon him. Plaintiff immediately put his hands in the air whereupon he was shot multiple times with rubber bullets.

At that point, Plaintiff Matthews fell into a creek or sewer. Defendant John Doe officers pounced on him, slammed his face into the concrete, and pushed his head underwater to the point that he felt he was going to be drowned. Afterward, Defendant John Doe police officers continued to assault him and spray him with O.C. spray.

Flip Flop House Dan Brunn Architecture 

“As its name suggests, the Flip Flop House by Dan Brunn Architecture plays with a sense of duality on multiple design levels. Acting as an architectural chameleon, the dynamic house is malleable to the clients’ desire to both display their art collection and embrace the sweeping vistas of Venice beach. The house’s signature gesture—its top-floor pivoting walls— facilitates this by rotating to display or conceal artwork. Besides the artwork and beach duality, there are other contrasts at work in this 5,700-square-foot minimalist house. The play of hard and soft, matte and reflective, shadow and light permeates every space. Expansive rooms with interior and exterior vistas flow seamlessly into endless ocean views.”

Why I've Been Depressed And Quiet

I could do an epic orchestra cover of Taylor Swift “Shake It Off” and make good money by riding the S.E.O. train - as outlined in my “Cover Sales vs. Original sales" blog post. But after the wave crashes then all I’m left with is a few dollars and a memory. I can never sell that sheet music, remix it again, release stems, or claim it as my own. I never went to school to be a cover artist.

Back in 2007 I had one of the biggest Youtube channels in the world at 25,000 subscribers. 25,000 subscribers was unheard of back then, crazy - right? But I wasn’t happy because after 400 music lesson episodes I didn’t want to be a guitar instructor - my passion was always with the orchestra.

So I pivoted and started ‘ForOrchestra’ by releasing a few originals but on week 5 I released my 2nd cover song: Lady Gaga ‘Poker Face’. It went viral and was even featured on Perez Hilton, so it hit me - only do covers!

Fast forward to 2014 and my income has dwindled, mainly because I can’t do anything with my arrangements. Sure, I can sell them on iTunes for a $0.50 on each $1 sale but how is that happiness? How is that even remotely what I ever wanted 6 years ago?

It’s not. It’s not what I want. And it’s not what you deserve. I want to have the freedom to sell you sheet music so tomorrow’s children can learn violin, release the stems, have Spotify listening parties, grow the orchestra’s live performances, do music giveaways, and so much more with you.

But I can’t. I’m a prisoner at the hands of the publishers. But it’s not their fault because I dug my own grave knowing which copyrights I had to follow before each song release.

I even wanted to do a treasure hunt recently - where I split a song into 10 pieces and hid each one on a different corner of the internet. Then YOU would have to find them and combine the music.

Basically, virtually anything else other than what I’m doing right now is exactly what I want to do going forward.

So I think ForOrchestra has to change, and fast. It was fine when I had a few dozen songs, but now that I’m at 200 it seems that every week I face the same story and imprisonment of working with other people’s property. Cease and desist letters, royalties, DMCA counter claims, and worse of all: a creative exodus to do what I want with my music.  

The past 6 months haven’t been good. I was creatively empty and going down a road that I didn’t want to go down. When I get older I don’t want to be a 50 year old cover artist. I have 5 cover songs that I’m uploading this week, and then after that I’m done with it.

I have so many original songs that are 10x better than any cover song I’ve written. the issue is that my covers sell 10x as much as my originals. But I’m just going to do it - spearhead it.

TL;DR: All originals from here on out.

In the 1970s, there were no dispensaries in California, much less legal recreational shops. There was, however, a man named Brian O’Dea.

7 Adventures I Had as the World’s Biggest Pot Smuggler

#7. Sometimes the Biggest Dangers Aren’t Cartels or Cops

Let me tell you about the time we made the stupid fucking decision to transport 16,000 pounds of weed via DC-6. The goal was to get our weed from Colombia, load it into this gigantic plane, and fly it back to the states, where it would turn — as if by magic — into $4 or $5 million. Back in the 1970s, that was basically all the money, anywhere, ever. I bought the plane with two dudes from Chicago, but none of us could fly the damn thing. So we found a young man who had 2,000 hours of professional experience with a two-engine plane. Ours was a four-engine, and he said, “Oh, it’s no different. I read the book.” Not knowing fuck-all about planes, I assumed that made sense. After all, how could four engines be less reliable than two? (The answer is, there are twice as many chances for something to go cock-eyed.)
