I feel basically every spectrum of the emotional wheel on this, but The Carousel is stopping. Maybe it will start again, maybe it won’t.
I’ve really lost any ambition behind it. Sure its always a blast having friends over for concentrated art discussion with an audience we can interact with to an extent. And I’ve made a ton of irreplaceable internet friends and even meet a few of them in real life. But this podcast is just too much of a pain in the ass for me to do anymore currently. The scheduling problems, the hour or two it takes to edit and post, the irregularity caused by the scheduling problems, and the fact that no one’s opinion on a video game or movie really matters that much if at all. Like how I snuck that last one in there?
I’m just tired and I have too much to do. And I’m not the only one as is obvious from the scheduling problems. Between a job that I have to work 50 hours a week on to an album that I’m incredibly excited about releasing to Suzy’s upcoming con schedule, there just isn’t much time. Or money for that matter. Too much of my equipment is dying. 1 Rhodes NT1 mic is dead with my M-Audio not far behind. The mixer we use is slowly but surely dying as all the audio cut in and outs on the recording is telling.
I know, I know, I’m not supposed to be this personable on the net. Just stick to the opinion on the games and movies and stuff. But that’s really not me. I’m a relatively open guy. And the reality is being an adult is the worst thing that can possibly happen to anybody.
There will probably be things posted on the site. And the Facebook community is still freakin’ awesome! Of course part of what I love about the Facebook community is it basically has nothing to do with us, its just a bunch of fans sharing news and predictions.
Anyway, I wish you all well and with any luck The Carousel will return in some form. I might even make the audio version of that last one we recorded a month ago. But for now, The Carousel has stopped turning. Thank you for all the you’ve spent with us.
