You’re here, and I’m sure there’s some sort of a reason, most likely an awful mistake, but I’ll make it worth your time. Continue reading
I have always considered myself a giver, someone who lives for others and not myself, like I mean, I’m so focused on helping people that I sometimes forget about myself, like when I made this video on polishing guitar frets, I was in such a hurry to spread my knowledge to the rest of the world, I forgot my tea and it went cold… I’m so not into myself it’s incredible!
Can you believe there’s actually cunts like that in the world? Luckily I’m not like that, I’m one of the good ones. I AM AWESOME!
Okay, seriously this time. Here’s a few stupid tips on not fucking up something as simple as polishing frets. That’s it. Go try them. Should anything go wrong, you’re on your own. I’m not even here, never was. See? Gone? Gone how? I can’t be gone if I was never here to begin with. Now we’re thinking!
After over 6 decades, we should have it down by now, yet musicians all over the world spend countless nights struggling to catch some sleep over one stupid issue: a 3-pickup guitar with only 2 tone knobs.
In fact, 67% of the posts on the Luthier’s Guitar & Bass Technical Discussion section of TheGearPage.net for 2019 were about this very issue, making it second overall on the site, trailing closely behind shitty Klon posts. We get it, your glorified TS pedal is exactly whatever you idealized a Tube Screamer to be, and whenever you decide to sell it you’ll be able to buy 17 ODs that all sound the same.
Anyway, here’s a stupid video about a stupid easy way to solve a stupid issue.
Here’s a basic skill every musician should know.
Yes, drummers too, I don’t care they don’t have to plug anything, we spend our entire lives taming wild drummers, the least they can do is help fixing cables.
This is ‘Aneurysm’, the first somewhat polished mix of the 13-track extravaganza.
It’s not even mastered yet, but I promise it’ll sound just as dirty once it’s finished.
I took this picture yesterday, March 28th, 2020.
It is the last take, on the last track, of the last song that needed recording for an album I’ve been working on for about a year and a half.
It was an interesting feeling.
And to be honest, it kinda bugs me because my lazy ass knows now I have to clean up some files and start mixing, but then there’s the good part: I recorded a full album, I did it by myself and I did it on my terms, the way I wanted to.
That’s pretty fucking fucking cool.
Should you ever be compelled to go and get my first EP, just a particular song from it or even stream them wherever you stream stuff, here’s a quick way to get you there, wherever “there” is:
This might come as a shock to the millions that silently and in a creepily passive way have followed this project, but it was unavoidable: 230 is dead. It probably was from the start, like a delayed period you decided to name without even having a test first.
230 was a clumsy attempt at pulling a Dave Grohl on myself, making my own delusional inner asshole of a child believe I had a band, so that I wouldn’t feel ashamed of publishing my music. It was either that or the fact that I kept expecting to form a band to then play these songs while skipping the hideous “let’s think of a name” days. I’ve been there way too many times before, nothing good ever comes up, just like 230 wasn’t good, at all.
So yeah, here I am, embracing loneliness like I should have, becoming Professor Chaos.
I am me, and this is I.
Weird times these be…
Anywhow… this is a new domain, lonerjuan.com it be, as it should have been long before.
Nothing else to add. Things should come.
Yeah, I make recipe videos now, bilingual recipe videos. Not wearing an apron yet but crazier shit has happened so I wouldn’t rule that one out either.
