Blog Report 3/13/2010: Shedding Some Light


Quick question…who here remembers the last Blog Report? Anyone…anyone…Bueller?

Played-out jokes aside, if I recall, the last post was focusing around the 4 projects currently in the works, with promises of updates.

Well, hold on tight, because for 3 of the 4 projects, it’s time to let the world know what’s really going on.

Behind door #1…Project Nightmare 2.0: It’s Just A Game

  • Following the format of the 1st Project Nightmare installment, PN 2.0 is yet another mixtape of instrumentals, distributed freely.
  • The theme for this installment is video games.
  • Coming late May 2010 on

But wait'…there’s more! Door #2… the uglyside of beautiful

  • A fresh new EP with a few new songs. Nothing too out of the ordinary.
  • Production is 65-75% done.
  • Coming Summer 2010 (release formats TBD)

And the last project behind door #3 is… the beautifulside of ugly

  • The twin sister/brother to the uglyside of beautiful. Only this one’s more…personal. And deconstructed.
  • Currently in writing mode. Instrumentation is being ironed out.
  • Coming Summer 2010 (release formats TBD)

Oh yeah, about Project 4… well, I really want to wait and keep you guessing on it. Because I don’t like saying things I can’t live up to…and this is a little project I really want to get out in the best way.

We cool? Yeah.

That’s all for me…see you next time.

So the new EP, "the beautifulside of ugly" is in production right now. And it turns out, I need some help.

I wrote this song called October Sky (not based on the movie, FYI) and I composed this part that sounds really good...just not if it was rapped out.

So here's the idea: I need a really talented female singer (who knows what they're doing) to sing this part. Here's the lyrics with the part highlighted (copyright MC biting)

Watch this empire crumble underneath it’s own weight
Trying to prevent the inevitable, fighting a war against fate
It’s the end of a dream, dying in my hands
A lifetime of hope that slips like time’s sands
I knew today would eliminate tomorrow by design
I could’ve prevented this, but I was delusional, at the time
With all that’s transpired, I just want to expire with my disgrace
Fade out without a doubt in my mind, I’m not going to see the end of this race

And this ghost of you haunts me, underneath the October sky
I can still see this all, in the back of my eye
I wish you would leave, believe that I don’t care for you
But my lips can’t be trusted, and these careless whispers are untrue

The silence is deafening, and I am without my sanity
My reflection distorted, no honesty, just the picture of vanity
A picture of everything that could’ve been, should’ve been
The fact that I threw this away on a whim, for something where victory is so slim
This reflection lies to me, at the moment I need that truth, that proof
That where I’m going does not include us, just myself in solitude
The disconnection is so abrupt and sudden, it could be rude
But I have to, for myself this time

(chorus 2) x2
Where have you run to, where have you gone?
My fears have come true, we won’t be together for long

Standing over the mess I’ve created, I hate it
Every inch, every second, I look back and I flinch
It was never supposed to end like this, I whisper to a chorus of ambience
And then, this decision all makes sense
This city is so beautiful, especially in the night
It looks so much more wonderful, when it’s burning so bright
As I see everything I care about leave my life in minutes of ignition that loses control
A ghost rises from the ashes, that has become a parasite, feeding off my soul
And now the memories are the poison, I fear I can’t find a remedy
When the October sky hangs overhead, I hear the ghastly melody

(Chorus 3)
And this ghost of you haunts me [Where have you run to…]underneath this October sky
I can still see this all [where have you gone…] in the back of my eye
I wish you would leave [My fears have come true….] believe that I can’t care for you
But my lips can’t be trusted [we won’t be together for long] and these careless whispers are untrue

Sounds good? Then here's what I need:
  1. Record a demo version of just the highlighted parts. Do it the way you feel would be "best" for the song.
  2. Sound quality isn't an issue. If I can hear you, then good.
  3. Email it to "m.c.larny at". Subject Line: October Sky Demo. Have a return address included, and if you have a MySpace or another website to display your music, include that in the email.
  4. If it sounds like what I'm thinking works, I'll contact you and you'll be invited to record.
So...let's hear what you got. Good luck to all of you (or in this case, any of you).

Blog Report 3/2/2010: Putting Work In…Again


So after a full month of no Blog Report….we got one for ya, in March. And this time, I’ll try to be less spotty about updates.

  • 4 projects are currently in the pipe-line. One of them is Project Nightmare 2, and that should drop in May.
  • The other 2 are EP’s. Hoping to drop them as bookends (read: summer 2010)
  • And the last one…oooh lordy, that’s a doozy. You’ll be pleasantly surprised when I do say something about it.
  • I opened a Tumblr (which is right here) for demo showcasing. It’s easier and it works 500x better than updating Reverbnation and having it not sync to the FB News Feed. So do check it out.

Now, on to other things. Reading about the Waka Flaca/Method Man nonsense made me think about it…and here’s what I have to say.

At least he was honest. At least he said he wasn’t lyrical. At least he told us now…so in 6-9 months, whenever he drops something, we don’t have to check for his releases.

“But…but. he’s makin’ money, why you hatin’?

You do know who else in the “hood” is making money…

Drug dealers. Pimps. Prostitutes. Where’s their celebration? Oh, I got it…it’s not there. Everyone has their opinion, and for Waka Flaca…quick tip.

Anything you get from your music, better save it and invest. Otherwise, you may wind up forgotten and robbing banks to get by like this guy right here.

And another thing….who the $^&* signed off on the “We Are The World” remake? That is pitiful. And here I was thinking Hollywood was the only major entertainment industry capable of ruining classics via remakes….

OK…so that’s it for my ranting self this issue.

In the meantime, check out these links right here:

Until next time….
