Well, I don’t have much time lately to deal in general and this blog’s not an exception. To tell you the truth I’m not in the mood either.
Of course I didn’t get bored of this, and communicating with other people through music is something very revitalizing but… Just yesterday I discover that most upload links from this space are by now dead. It’s obvious now. The takedown notifications stopped but they targeted White Trash Soul as a “criminal”, “pirate” whatever anyway site. And it’s worthless to spend all this time from my spare with no cause.
I’m waiting for my second son's birth in a few days and my firstborn demon demands everyday more attention. And that’s fair. And I’m proud of him for every new thing thinks up to with a new day’s coming! I really like when he points with his tiny fingers on my records first and then at our home sound system. He REALLY seems to like what daddy puts on.
I’ve bought so many books and records during the last period that when I’m think of it I realise that I didn’t gave them a proper listen (or read) or a listen (or read again) at all. So I guess it’s time for slowing things down a little bit, for all the above reasons and re-arrange some things. Recharge my batteries and give some space to you guys and gals to miss me and to miss you. As I said many times before, White Trash Soul made me a better person (by sharing things and thoughts), and even if I wanted to I would never be able to dump it. And if I must be a down to earth kind of guy (I never was actually) I must face the blessed truth that with two little fellas ‘round the house, there’s not much time really to post with the previous rhythms. And there are many things to share and exchange here and hoping this time not to be chased. Be a follower of this blog to not miss a thing.
I’ve got some emails and comments by friends of the page for a new White Trash Soul compilation. Yeh, that’s a good idea. I'd rather do something more creative by picking an amount of tracks beneath thousands than just to pick a record and then shoot some words. And that’s a damn hard work to do! You have people in the one hand who want the classics, the well known tracks and on the other there are those who want the obscures. I never made separations like this one, but I can’t blame anyone for his tastes. Cool tracks are just cool tracks. Well known or not. The only thing I always try to notice to avoid is the position of ‘em. I was guarded on this even when I was a little kid and made home tapes for my friends or the chicks (no one ever liked them anyway…). Just like if you’re playing music in a club. Which one goes first and which one should follow? This time I asked for help on the artwork piece cause sorry Bo, many times in life you can judge a book by looking at the cover. And Jean Philippe helped on this one too and with outstanding results! We are working on it still and hopefully in a few days you'll be able to dance to it... If they let it (of course) exist somewhere in the net...
We will not going to talk to each-other that often, but when it's time - we must have lots to say.
Take care all of you and thanks for supporting me.
I'll be back...
