Is making music for yourself not an option?
Just to release your emotions throug it?
That's what music is for.

Why everyone want's a release, i realy don't get.

Everything I do has to mean something to myself but it is nice to hear your shit played in a club or get props from someone you look up to or respect

If I was doing music strictly for myself I'd be doing a techno gangsta rap Linkin Park thing but that could sound kind of cheesy (Like Eminem meets Paul Oakenfold)

- then again it might be the next Jungle music

I would totally help you with that! Except it would have to be harder than Linkin Park.... Like NWA meats Ramstein and Prodigy.

Honestly though, you would instantly have an audience for anything that out there, whether it would cross over into the 1000+ audience is up to the corporate record shills.

Make music because you like it, and if you can put across your sense of humor you show on this board to an audience, you definitely will be noticed.

Ok my "depression" has turned to anger

While I'm working on beats and fooling around with you guys my girls making some lunch for me (she's nice like that) Hamburger Helper to be exact -

She leaves for the day to go run errands, kick it etc

Well she left the food on the oven - she's not gone 5 minutes and one of the dogs ate the whole GODDAMN THING right off the stove - I come downstairs and it's gone - he's licking the pot and looking at me like he just won the lottery

Yeah, that was my lunch...I ended up getting some burger king

I know, my diet is second to none right?

The internet is depressing - if you listen to Chatterbox on LCFR they warned us about the internet!!!

Think about it - the internet is a way to show you who you aren't, what you don't have and who you'll never be with. <--depressing

You know, all I see on the internet is these pictures of people / dj's etc playing in indigenous countries with like 59 strippers salivating all over the decks to a sold out soccer arena <-- that shit never happens to me

You go on myspace and all these people are pimping out their rides or studios and you're like fuck I can't afford that shit

and well, if you've ever traveled to an "over-age" website it's like fuck man, I'll never hook up with a chick like that

depressing - go ahead flame me, I'm at my lowest point ever.

I played a party last night at a club called Del Ray for a good friend of mine and that felt good because we go way backbut then I just went home to my boring home and cried, I'm still crying

LCFR was right - the INTERNET IS A BAD THING!!!

I really don't mean to be rude but .....
Why the hell do you give a shit !!!!!
Life isn't a popularity contest or a keeping up with the Jones's wankfest.
I really could not give a flying fuck about such issues myself.
You have food on the table ?
A roof over your head ?
Are capable of paying your bills ?
Have good health ?
If you can answer YES to atleast three of those questions I'd shut the fuck up because 2/3rds of the world have it far worse than we do.
Time YOU GOT A LITTLE PERSPECTIVE !
Or should I just scream at you "get a reality check" ?
My aren't the wings of butterflies beautiful and do they not make wonderful perturbations.....

There is only one solution. KILL your dog!!!!!!!!!! I also agree with what FAX-01 has to say, which is TUNE INTO REALITY FM!!!!

No man, check the fridge, it's April Fools day, the dog's totally fucking with you. He put the HH in the fridge and was licking an empty bowl. Your dog has a sick sense of humor, or maybe he was hoping for a ride in the car.

"I don't know why they call it Hamburger Helper when it practically does the whole thing by itself!"
and he says that when cooking on the BBQ... wtf?

Another line comes to mind from that movie, the two female cousins are talking
"yeah, well I French Kiss"
"so, what? everybody does that"
"well daddy says that I do it the best"
LMFAO!!!

I guess I should be happy I don't live in Communist China - everybody looks the same and they have the GreatFireWall of China so they don't even know what exotic city Tiesto's playing this weekend

They're pretty lucky I guess :roll:

Syke, I'm pretty stoked - I just want to kick it like Diddy and have my own fragrence and a small island I can call my own

I don't think a forum has anything to do with it - some people participate pretty heavily in all kinds of weird shit and still manage to keep it real - no matter what they do...I think it's called multi tasking - see I'm doing it right now, typing and working on music (Go figure, I didn't know that was possible)

Some people sit at work and post then go home and dont post they work on music - some people post on the weekends and some other people just post (like on the bus or at a cafe) and don't even make music, or have none to show for all the posts they may or may not have.

If you're saying I'm weird because I make fun of jews and aborted fetus's and German's and Asian people and someone in some bar would beat me up because of that, that's weird - you know some people are really realer than you think! and some people don't make fun of that kind of shit they believe it.

All we can do on this board is share knowlegde, our music and crack some jokes - god forbid if we travel and happened to meet some of these cats in real time / real life - have a beer / some coffee and smoke a joint - enjoy each others music and company <-- I'm always up for that (except for not making it to Machinesworkings gig (because I tied one on the night before) but I've seen Pitch Black play when they came to town, I meet AdamJay at a Tronic Treatment party in Miami (before I was a member of this board) he gave me a cd with his hand photocopied on it I think. and you know people PM each other all the time so...

So if you think I'm weird, whatever, I am - but honestly if I wasn't being real, I wouldn't be this weird

And for the record again, personally I'm not depressed in the clinical since - I'm just like fuck why can't I be a Carl Cox, Roger Moore kind of guy who dates Jessica Simpson and wins grammys like Deep Dish <-- TODAY, maybe after my big record drops but I mean TODAY RIGHT NOW!

Oh FYI alot of very well known producers post all over the internet 1000's of time's daily 8O
I didnt mean you as the weird one, wasnt that obvious?.

I still dont quite buy that heavy forum activity=musical success. Im sure Adam has released lots of records but to tell the truth I wouldnt exactly say hes a name and I had never heard of him until this forum (no disrespect intended). Im just saying hes not up there with Carl Cox and I reckon if Carl had posted 4000 posts here and thousands in other forums I dont think he would be where he is today and the same goes for all of the major name djs. But were not talking about Adam Jay, this is about YOU.

You are depressed about your lack of success, then get up off your arse and do something about it and quit your girly whingeing (no offence intended) I have heard your music and its very good, so get on with it.
