Marcus UNLIMITED Sunday Report 10/23/2009…

Posted in Blogging by marcusunlimited on August 23, 2009

The right now of things…

1. DECAF: I feel like I need a coffee break, but income has been so tight trying to cover the loan I used to get into my new building. Ugh!

2.SHOP MU:  I had a late night, morning idea for a MU Store at the main web site page.  I would make a small video previewing all the material on the album, then a PayPal buy now button.

3. Etsy: I just launched our Etsy shop and I started with the simplest smallest items I could possibly find. Two ACEO cards from a while back. Our Etsy shop:

4. AIWU: Want to work on the AIWU (aka: Alice in Wonderland UNLIMITED) more, however, money matters are effecting everything right now.

5. STUDENTS: Launched the Student Artist Program, I believe it will be awesome for everyone if I can stay alive financially.

6. A RICH AND FAMOUS MUSIC PRODUCER’S DELUSIONS OF GRANDEUR: Listened to an interview with a rich and “famous” music producer the other day. I found it to be shocking how good he thought he was as a musician. Maybe he has some skill that he keeps hidden? He seemed to act as if he was where he is at success wise, because of his superiority as a musician? Wow? However, when I compare his skills to almost anyone with any level of education and or experience as a composer or producer (numbering in the thousands!) I not only find him “below” the common line of great skill, but I also would say that he needs to be re-educated especially in regards to how to write for human voices.

I disliked him so much after hearing his delusional ego in the interview I wanted to tear the front page off of the magazine because I couldn’t stand to look at his cheeziness (sp?) which oozed through into his picture.

Folks, whenever you hear anyone, ANYONE, talk or act as if they are the “Chosen One” (ala Anakin Skywalker) you can pretty much resolve to the idea that they are extremely delusional and lost somewhere high upon their own imaginary mountain in foo-foo land.  I can tell you that most, most, most well educated and experienced singers, composers, producers etc., are all quite good if not great and their financial success has alot more to due with many other factors one of which must also be a bit of the reality that anything, anything having to due with numbers always has a touch of randomness to it. (sorry I repeat words when angry, angry, ANGRY!)

To know and to say you have skills = cool! To think, and to say that you are the chosen one who walks upon the waters of omnipotence=LAME!  Think about it, is that giant, billion dollar fast food place the creator of the “better” food? Or is the local ma and pa handmade Italian place that hand makes its pizza from scratch with fresh vegetables and barely makes $25,000 a year the better place? Come on, you know that better, or greater in skill often means the ones who make the lesser amounts of money. I’m okay with the truth even if its not my favorite truth but I don’t like kids being lied to and told that the reason D… never mind, “some famous composer/producer” makes the money he makes is because he is head and shoulders above so many other musicians. No way! This world is full of thousands and thousands of very, very talented people from every where on earth. If any of my students are reading this, remember no matter how good you get, always know there are many, many others who deserve to have their great talents respected as well. I don’t mean one or two others, I mean thousands. And that goes for you too!

7. HEALTH:I’m not sure what type of exercising to attend to today. If the weather is anything like it was yesterday here a walk isn’t sounding to pleasant I don’t think.

8. MONEY 1: I’ve had an idea to request corporate sponsorship from Zappo’s for our Alice in Wonderland. I’m not sure how, and I’m not sure on what level, but it is an idea.

9. MONEY 2: I guess in Summer here alot more money is spent on food because one doesn’t want to fire up the stove, the rice cooker, or even the microwave for more than 5 minutes because it will raise the temp of the whole dwelling.

10. IF YOU EVER CALL ME: Please be sure you leave your return phone number very clearly. I’ve had some folks call recently and they said everything but their phone number?
