To a great degree, I am picking up where I left off two years ago. Just reminded of that yesterday. I had launched a Pledge Music campaign in spite of being pretty seriously disabled. It seemed like a reasonable thing to do. Run the campaign while I was recovering and then put out my solo album at long last. But it was not meant be. I had a bad feeling about Pledge from the start. The business model seemed unsustainable and I didn’t trust that I would get the funds handled properly, I was worried, that if the campaign was successful, I would end up holding the bag and I was not in any condition to just roll with more music industry bullshit.

I have decided to leave social media, all of it. I tried creating fresh profiles to see if that would do the trick, but it’s more than that. And it’s difficult to explain. I am sure you already understand. I understand why you stay as well. There is a lot of great contribution happening, and that is the issue. I am not finding the relationship equitable. I find it draining, as a creator of content. So, I am going to stop for a while. See how it goes. But I am not just going to log off. I am going to leave, permanently.

I will be focusing my energy on actual creation. Privately, in my studio, at my own pace and it may not be documented, not if I don’t feel like it. I will be making posts here on my blog. I will be contributing to my Patreon feed where subscribers will also be notified of and have first access to new releases before they come to my website.
Teetering on the edge of oblivion, the black mask of reality torn asunder. Memories return. Afterlife images, meaningless surrender. Continue reading “David’s Sling”
