Life Update

Just wanted to make a quick post here to tell the readers I still have where I've been.

End of September/early October, my dad, brother and I moved out of the 1-room apartment we were in, into a house. While I should be happy about the extra space, I'm not completely. Simply put, the house's owner (a relative of one of my dad's friends) doesn't like cats. That means I can't have my cat with me. He's now with my mom, but it's not the same. I had my cat for a good reason, and it's just not fair that I can't have him with me now.

Basically, I've just been trying to deal with all that. I have a post or two planned in the near future. But if anyone really needs me, there's Twitter and Facebook (links to the side).

John Best Stoops to a New Low



I come to find that beauty on Facebook.

I will be reporting him for a personal attack; however I know it will be meaningless in the end. He's really not worth my time, and I haven't taken him seriously in years, but... wow. That's just really low and uncalled for.

New music

I'm not quite done with my self-imposed hiatus yet, but I felt the need to post this here. I need all the listens and promotion I can get, and it seems this blog has a decent amount of readers.

OK, the title is misleading. It's not NEW music, but it's new to you. I compiled some old electronica-based stuff I did years ago, onto a new digital release called Old Stuff.

There no vocals in either song, so ignore any song titles (there is a "4-letter word" in one of them) and just listen to it.

It can be downloaded (for free!) here: http://beau99.bandcamp.com/album/old-stuff

Hiatus

I need one.

I realize not keeping this updated for some time now may count, but I felt I needed to post this message to let my few readers where I was.

In March I think it was, I was in the hospital for a few days. They said I had a seizure. I don't remember any of what went on, but I trust them. Since then I've felt generally tired and some days, I feel slightly ill. It always goes in due time, but I don't know what it could be.

With that posted, no new posts from me until further notice. I'm trying to focus on my music and writing new songs. Thanks for reading, even those on the opposite side of me. Though to be honest, a part of how I few things has changed since I started this. I no longer want anything to do with the autism politics, and I prefer to keep a lot of things private now. If I ever resume posting, I really don't see myself posting a lot about autism any more. I just want to post about what I'm feeling and thinking at the time.

That's about it for now. Once again, thanks for reading.

If you really want to get in touch with me, I have Twitter (see my feed on this page) and Facebook here.

Upcoming

In about two weeks (February 27, to be exact), I will get to see one of my favorite underrated singers of all time, Mike Doughty. For those of you who are not familiar with him, he is a singer-songwriter from Brooklyn. He attended college at Simon's Rock for two years in the mid-80's before transferring to New School University to take poetry class under professor Sekou Sundiata. In the 1990's, he was in a band named Soul Coughing. They broke up in 2000, he kicked his heroin habit, and started playing solo.

After 5 years of waiting (I became a fan in 2005), Mike is finally making his way to my area. His solo work is one of my biggest influences in my own writings. I wish to tell him this, and hopefully that will happen in two weeks.

I can't wait.
