Since I hardly ever use Tumblr, and I don’t update my Facebook fan page every day, it’d be pretty sweet of you to follow my Twitter page to get the info you need on Schoolcraft. Love you.
(And I don’t just mean getting back on Tumblr.)
This post is about to get disgustingly sappy and full of woe-is-me teenage emotion, so brace yourself.
I feel like I should explain why I haven’t been making too much music lately. You’d think that after the explosion of interest in me after “Here In The Dark”, I’d follow through, right? You’d be right, and I tried, but…
You know that thing called “love”? Sometimes it’s the greatest thing in the world. I vaguely remember a time where it was just that for me. I’d been walking around aimlessly, hopelessly for much of my life, and I was debating in my head for the longest while what the point of everything was, what made living life worth the effort? And one day she said hello to me, and we went through the rounds and after a time she showed me the answer. And man, I was the happiest I’d been in my life. I kid you not. I made some of the best and some of the most music I’d ever made, and I never frowned ever. Those were the good times.
And then she left.
For what, I don’t know.
But I stopped making exciting electro house bangers, and eventually just pretty much stopped making things that sounded happy. And I moved on to “Here In The Dark” and “It’s Been A Long Time Since You’ve Told Me You Love Me” and the sit-down-and-sulk remix of Bon Iver’s “Perth”, which were all tracks inspired by memories I had of her. I made those songs to let out all of my negativity… but they actually didn’t do much for that cause.
Well, some time has gone by, and she’s gotten farther from me than ever, and the loneliness of it all seems to double every day. And I just can’t seem to get over her. And the questions I had before she came into my life are back again. And unfortunately another big part of this is that since my muse is long gone and my memories are starting to collect dust, I don’t have anything to create with anymore. I don’t have that potent magic ingredient that I used to make the beautiful music I used to… love.
So unless she comes back to me, or if my mind can somehow manage to finally let go, I’m afraid I won’t be creating too much. I’m doing my best for all of you, though. I can’t even begin to thank you for letting me share my world with you, through music. It gives me so much hope to see you connect with my mind. It makes me feel so much less alone.
Happy new year, you lovely people. Thank you.
I’ve posted another 8tracks mix, titled “Fourteen Tracks About Childhood”. If you’re in the mood for some lovely, chill music… you should investigate. :) Enjoy.
After long, dangerous hours in the nuclear waste facility that is my beat laboratory, it’s finally come to life- my deathstep crunk-hop remix of “Bass Down Low”. You will only receive about 10% of the effect if you listen to this in your laptop speakers. It’s best listened to in a home theater, in your car, in the CLUB, or at least in some nice headphones. However, I am NOT responsible for any damages, injuries, or pregnancies that may be caused by bumping this jam super-loud. Thanks as always for listening. :)
A new track of my own, called “Togetherness (A Tribute To The Robots)”. You may recognize who I’m referring to as “the robots”. ;) Enjoy, and thank you for listening.
The title says it all. Enjoy. :)
There’s a new Schoolcraft track up on my Youtube page. :) Listen and enjoy.
This track is going to be on the upcoming album along with 9 others. Start bracing yourself for it, it’s going to be BIG. Thank you as always for listening.
Here in Atlanta, we’re having quite a bit of rainy, cloudy, dreary weather. So, here’s a little something I’ve made to celebrate this peaceful, mind-easing weather. Click the picture and enjoy. :)
