"I never cared about upvotes, and I don't recall ever calling myself a great blogger. I have always only blogged for the community. I won't hesitate... If an idea appears in front of me, I will write it!"
--Me, just now.
Sweet Ghandi's tits it's been a while since my last blog; let alone since I was regularly commenting on the site. The thing is, since the beginning of January my life started to get pretty damn busy. Life can just smack your dick out of nowhere and next thing you know you're being asked to shoulder tackle the great wall of China. Trying to juggle between finances, workouts, classes, DJ shifts, managing music assets for a radio station, announcing for boxing venues, managing a social life, and my Dtoid blogging/commenting hobby isn't easy by any means. You're gonna drop some balls along the way, and I noticed this site was one of them. Honestly, I feel pretty bad about that. I've stuck with this site for a long time despite the flux and flows of the community members and staff. Communities are built with revolving doors for a reason, and I'm glad to see some new faces emerging from lurker status as well as some old ones returning from hiatus.
But let's be real here:
Y'all know I shouldn't have left you without a dope C-Blog to step to!
Before I go any further, let me set the mood with the finest Nujabes instrumental there is. Gaj, this one's for you buddy.
This track is cooler than Freddie Jackson sippin' a milkshake in a snowstorm.
So where the fuck have I been? Well, for the past few months I've met some amazing new friends who've I've been hanging out with a lot lately. Although I've slumped for the past two weeks, I was working out almost everyday for the past five months, and my trainer/best friend was no joke. I decided to make a change for myself and started getting more active and eating better. I was also managing music assets as a production assistant for 90.5 "The Kat" KHSU, which is the campus radio station for Sam Houston State. Basically my job was recieving promo CD's from different record companies (free music is awesome) to put on the air. It's a pretty cool process on how it works! I check the CD's for what songs would be good to play, burn and ingest them into the campus Google server database, then organize the ingested song files and sort them to their different genres for both English and Spanish stations. It's a tedious and time consuming process, but I enjoy it. I also had to use TLC (Trim Label Convert) software to record the intro (when the singing actually starts) and the end of music (when the singing actually ends). The reason for trimming the music like this is because those extra seconds leftover are used for the DJ to segway into the next track. I'd then have to log the artist, song name, CD ID number, and the intro/EOM (end of music) into a logbook for record keeping.
Speaking of radio DJ's, I was also one for the past six months! I was DJ Cbizzle for 90.5 HD2 "El Gato". Holy shit that was a lot of fun. Here's the promo I had to make for myself. Be warned, I sound like a completely different person when my Spanish radio persona kicks in. Ugh, now I want elote. Don't know what elote is? Look it up, you're seriously missing out.
Shade has his Dutch. I has my Spanish.
Now that all of that personal stuff is out of the way, I'd like to give the tip of my hat to the community for this super smooth blog editor! It's like sex for my fingers. Remember three years ago when blog formatting and image embeds took actual skill and knowledge? The C-Blogs have come a really long way since then. I'll be whipping up a bigger blog with more length and girth in the near future, so keep your eyes peeled in the meantime!
Wait. Did I type AMA in the blog title? Yes I did. I'm down like four flat tires. Let's do this. So go ahead. Ask me anything. You know you want to you dirty sexy dickmongering inquisitive animals.
See you Space Cowboy.
