It's been three months since my last posting, and you may ask why. My inactivity on this page is mostly due to my recent bout with unemployment. It's a slow season in the world of Pharmecuetical Buisness Meetings, so I've been collecting un-employment insurance, and spending most of my time at my music studio, where I don't have any internet connection, or at home where the same lack of connectivity applies. I'm happy to say that I'm back at work and back to blogging. So what experiences do I have to share from my ninety days in the wilderness. I've learned the importance of toasting and grinding my own spices. You can make sausage from any kind of meat. I've learned how to get a kick drum and bass guitar to work together in a mix. One good guitar track can be bigger than ten okay ones. Water pressure is everything. It's good to have a dog at the studio. I actually like my parents. And finally, I don't think I'll ever quit smoking reefer.
I spent my morning catching up on A V/C, Fred Wilson's blog, and he recently posted some thoughts on honesty in the business world, and the virtues that make a good V/C (Passion, honesty, integrity, leadership, and smarts ) and I would like to add that those qualities would serve well for any one in any field. A music producer would be well served by those traits, and so would a pizza delivery person. In a perfect world we could have a President with at least two of them. In this less than perfect world, it seems we have a President who posesses none. I stress honesty above the rest simply because it simplifies one's life. If you never lie, you don't ever have to remember anything you've said. Lies create complications, and only serve to diminish yourself in others eyes as well as ones own. The truth may be difficult in the moment, but once the moment has passed, you are free.
