First Update of the Year

Happy belated new year, folks. It's time for the thing that I don't do as much as I should. To start to briefly update everything, I realize I haven't done much as far as uploading a new track. My goal was to have a new song written by the end of 2012, but unfortunately that didn't happen. Though I'm going to be very occupied (considering the fact that I'm going to start working two jobs by the upcoming Monday), I'm still determined to write. I've already begun the process and I hope to write in a significant abundance. For those keeping up, I've been trying to play a live performance for over three months now and I wasn't successful in that either. In hindsight, let alone transportation issues, perhaps performing solo wouldn't be as effective as I would hope. But what I do hope to do is start or join a band so that would be more effective to my musical career, since maintaining a solo project by feeding off the internet is not very beneficial. Even if I receive lack of luck in that attempt, I'll always support my solo project nonetheless with original work. I have been saying for the past few months that I'll get myself going but never got around to it, but now since I will be able to fund HALF the things I plan to do, I will be able to do what I want without finances standing in the way. Seriously, I'm going to get myself out there somehow. I plan on working on these fields: Writing/recording, photography, merch designing, and videos (even though I don't know what I would be filming). Writing/recording have already been explained. I would love to have a (somewhat experienced) photographer. I picked up photography a lot in the past month, I suppose I've been very interested in it. Therefore, I am interested in having a photographer (someone who can do photos at performance is a plus. Multiplication...) Merch design. I have not designed a new merch item since the beginning of fall if I remember correctly. Videos. I'm not sure what I would video record other than guitar covers. Perhaps I can do another video of me at a music store. At any rate, I hope to get back on the train real soon. I've got lots coming.

What may or may not happen

I don't do blogs very often, but I it's time I do something a little passed status updates. About a month ago, I was starting to get back to what I wanted to do. I've been looking forward to it for a handful of months that felt like a year. Unfortunately, that optimism and excitement is practically in the ground. I've noticed whatever I've done to achieve what I wanted, it never returned. My ability to write is diminishing. There's been many times where I wanted to write but my creativity failed to function. Even on top of that, I feel very let down. While I was excited and ready to being a musician regularly, I only I shared that excitement. I didn't, and don't, feel like anyone is supporting me. I once had a few people, but it pains me that they aren't there when I need them, especially at a time that could most possibly be my break through. And that's the only way it could get any worse on top of loss of writing ability: no fan support. If you are careless/ignorant towards this, you're probably thinking "Don't worry about what people think, do what you love" Most bands that you listened to, couldn't have gotten to where there are without the support of their fans, friends, or sometimes even their family. It's something that they need, it's something that I need. If they were left alone, they'd never reach success. And you know, I feel alone. I'd hate to suffer that fate, but it looks like I'm about to face it. I can't describe how much it kills me to feel ignored after how hard I worked on music that I enjoy. To share my music and have it overlooked. To tell everyone about my upcoming performance and have not even one person purchase a ticket. It makes me feel that my pain staking efforts are a waste of time. I'm on the borderline. My will to be a musician is disappearing. It's become something that isn't making me happy. It's more becoming an emblem of sorrow to me, seeing years go to waste. And all these years look up to this present. I can't lose this time. If you realize how important support is to me, or how my future may turn out to be, you would do something to help. I've done most of my part; I just need something in return.

This is undeniably an Update

Perhaps I could have picked a better name, but that's not all too important. This blog pretty much describes what I've been up to or what I will be up to. Lately, since the release of my Demo "Insanity of the Cosmos" (I've decided that it's not an EP anymore) I've been having a horrible case of writer's block. Since I release it to 15+ retailers, I haven't written anything new since then, which was roughly five months ago. For those who keep up, I would have been getting back up to speed in my solo project as far as new music and merch are considered, but I've been struggling to keep up with school and marching band for the last few months and my time for music has been incredibly scarce. It really disappoints me that I haven't gotten anything significant released since the Spring because of difficulty or lack of time etc.. However, I have decided to work desperately through the little time that I have to get some recording or writing done so that I can get the smallest amount of anything accomplished. For those who don't know, I don't necessarily take "no" for an answer. Very soon (perhaps the beginning of November) I will have much more time to assist to my solo project and better yet more time to assist to my life. I've already started to get back into recording regularly, and that's starting to pick up as we speak. I will work hard to get at least one new epic released before the end of this year and I have already started the search for sponsors and merch stores etc.. I will get back into what I do best, you won't have to be patient very long. I'm very determined to start writing some great stuff, and you will be impressed by it. I hope to stretch far very soon and hope to get new and better things accomplished.

New EP!

In case you weren't informed, on May 31, 2012, the "Insanity in the Cosmos" EP was released! It is available on Reverbnation and is now being distributed to iTunes, Amazon, Zune, and much more! It is a 4 track record consisting of Unreality and Blue Horizon of course, and two other tracks that my long time fans haven't heard before. Though it is an EP with 4 tracks, the length of it's entirety stretches passed a whopping 30 minutes. This record was mostly recorded in my newly designed home studio and was written entirely by myself. I'm hoping to receive reviews and feedback from virtually anybody and hope to make plenty of sales from this EP! Support Momo Morgenn and buy this record!

What I'm working on

I'm sure everyone (or anyone) has seen how ecstatic I was about releasing "Blue Horizon". Now what if I said I'm working on another song to release? Well, I am surely in the process. In fact, I have more material in the works than I realize. I have the will to write again, and it's been thriving lately and I'm happy to say that. I have three of my songs about to be reviewed by Reverbnation in about seven weeks and a phone call to make with OrlandoBands.com. I surely hope to get good responses from both. As of now, I'm working randomly on various projects and creating the best from it. I still have merchandise and I'm making more, I'm going to be selling my music on music networks such as iTunes very soon. Please stay on the look ou
