Hey my faithful blog readers! Lately I’ve been re-learning all of my Manasota songs from 2016 which has been challenging! It’s a really funny thing when you can’t play the songs you wrote yourself and forget what you did, haha. Anyway, that’s all changing and I’ve been figuring them all out again, which has been fun and challenging. I also, just finally updated to Bandcamp pro, and now have the ability to share videos on the Anthill Recordings Bandcamp page. I’ve put together a live(ish) version of Moai and Jellyfish and is now there in the Manasota page (embeded below). I plan on making some more live(ish) versions of the Manasota material.
I also wanted to show my appreciation to those of you who regularly read this blog and created a special discount code ‘blog20’ that will give you 20% off Manasota on 180g vinyl! Since it’s only $10 right now, that’s be a dirt cheap $8 for the record with free shipping in the USA and cheap shipping everywhere else! This promotion will last for one month, so the code will no longer work after 10/8/19.
Listening on vinyl is quite pleasurable, and it really sounds great. I really want you to be able to enjoy it yourself at a very affordable price. I think if you hear it for yourself, you will definitely agree.
Please consider making a contribution to The Brady Campaign https://demonicsweaters.com/2019/08/f… This is an updated and better version of my video on Elementary OS. I recently switched both of my laptops to this wonderful OS, and I go through the reasons why, plus offer some tips and tricks for the system.
I’m basically creating this post just to have a link that YouTube will let me post on my videos to donate to the Brady Campaign. Since they are the only ones seemingly trying to take action against the sick gun lobby in the USA, I highly recommend donating to them. Please click the image below to go to the donation page.
Tyler Zarzeka is a professional drummer whose credits include Charlie Puth, Kiiara, Noah Cyrus (Miley’s sister) and is currently on the road with Taylor Grey! He is currently on the roster for Q drums, Zildjain, Remo, Roland, Vic Firth, etc.
He’s a very down to earth and awesome guy, and I really enjoyed our conversation. We had a great talk about how to make the connections in becoming a pro drummer, what it’s like to be on the road, staying healthy while traveling and more!
