Hey my music is *free* and *creative commons (share alike)* at ApproachingUtopia.com/music and I would really appreciate if you could check it out.

So far people have donated $30 to my music this year and I am very grateful for that.

@beatmage Or as Picasso said: when inspiration comes, let it find me working.

Production Tip: layer up your samples for a unique sound.

Pro-Tip:

I don't sit down in the beat laboratory because inspiration approached me like a familiar and sat down on my shoulder.

I sit down in the beat laboratory to concoct an alchemical mixture of sounds that becomes music.

You can't just _wait_ for inspiration to strike you.

You _have_ to sit down and find inspiration.

Also if you’re into related to , , anti-, anti- you should follow me.

I will be writing a lot more about that stuff.

And also if I have more followers I feel like that will help.

Cuz like “look at me! Hire me because people follow me and like my writing!” Something like that.

We’re looking at alternative delivery methods that include stuff like remix stems, samples, and other special goodies.

This song is killing it: Aes Dana - Lysistrata youtube.com/watch?v=1Tm5xfiXl1 (great companion for my late day job working hours)

It takes a bit but at minute 3:30 it kicks in and evolves into awe.

Found on one of my latest Spotify playlist obsessions: "Cyberpunk Atmospheric" by @garrett from @staff

open.spotify.com/user/garrettm

And for educational purposes: Lysistrata is "an ancient Greek comedy by Aristophanes." en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lysistra

"People who are dying always remind me: ‘I can’t believe I wasn’t here for most of my life.’ That’s one of the most common things I hear, and the biggest regrets. " - Koshin Paley Ellison

I have a question: when I type in my site URL manually, approachingutopia.com, it automatically loads the http version instead of https. Why is that, and how do I fix it? Thank you in advance for your help.
