DISCONNECTED


i feel disconnected from everything.

i cant help but look back at how everything was cool before.

everything goes too fast. and im a fucking slow being. i cant keep up.

maybe i need to start something new and fresh. but can i even do that?

I think I know how you feel. This has all just flown by. Have you heard or seen anything inspiring? If not just be patient with it. Look forward to future posts. No matter how long it takes.

Post at least once a month, but don't leave :(

Emily said...

You want to know something?

I have every mix you have ever uploaded onto this blog. I loved your graphic art and then found out you loved music in a way not shared by most.

I understand this feeling. Inspiration comes less and less. The fire that once created some light in me rarely comes. However, I look to your posts for that little bit of magic that happen. Keep on keepin' on, brother.

We believe in you, brother!
Thanks a lot for the music!

There's nothing wrong with coasting for a while. It's difficult not to feel like you have to update regularly otherwise what's the point in a blog but in actual fact, it's refreshing at times not to be bombarded every day.

This blog is a definite case of quality over quantity(not that it's even lacking in quantity) but just do whatever you feel is right. Don't feel compelled to post updates unless you want to as you've already given us so much.

We all have had our torches extinguished and walked amongst shadows, comrade. Stagnation is a state which only exists as a contrast to our creativity. When your torch ignites again, please share with us what you have revealed from the shadows.

I will eagerly await your return.

My dear.
You've exposed remarkable talent & for 5 years, you've exceeded current graphic designing and web layout designing by eons.

This disconnection you feel is from lack of proper recognition and under acknowledgment and I hate to say it: aging. I'm terrified of growing up and I feel that's something else you're facing and you're not quite sure how to incorporate something you're so familiar with with something you biologically can't stop from altering.

I'll respect and love you all the same, but know that all that matters is something YOU want to do, and fuck everyone else.

I ALWAYS download and listen to the music you post and do not give a fuck about anything else. Thanks for making me listen to a huge amount of great great music.

Whatever you want to do or post we will dig it.

Keep positive and fuck all them haters :)

So M83 is coming to my area later this year. I haven't been excited about live music in 3 years. So with that...

If you guys seen Drive already then this is old news...but how about that soundtrack? Love it...http://sunsetintherearview.com/guest-post-day-today-movie-drive/
Not my blog, just a link I found on hypem.com


Enjoy. And I hope this helps, Akutou.

Hey Akutou,

People like yourself have created things so beautiful just on a whim that have given me hope in humanity.

I'm grateful for your work and would love for you to sick with it, even at your own pace.

You may feel disconnected, but you've probably touched so many.

Your site helped me through my mourning. You opened the door to a new world of music for me. Your reaction is natural. The mind is not made for being exposed to so much. Relax and think slowly. Hit that wall, it's ok, epiphanies and inspiration come from the abyss.

Appreciate everything you did.
Thank you.

Maybe a little inspiration for you. Maybe not. But when I first found this blog it was about 2 years ago, and it really put a fire in me to become a better artist, and reach out to musicians and improve my digital art. You really made me believe I could do it, not to mention you really broadened my musical knowledge and because of you I appreciate a lot of obscure and unique music and art. I have to say, actually, that your blog was the first design blog I ever came across and now, I am so well informed. You really are an awesome dude, and even if you aren't doing a lot with RAC and aren't doing a lot of pro work or however you are feeling held back. You are capable of anything my man, you just gotta believe in your art, and just go do it. We believe in you. I hope you get this. If you ever want to talk, I'm at jonnynewbrand.com. I'm an artist, a better one thanks to you and what you put me onto. My regards and respect go out to you.

if anything, please don't feel like you've let this blog, or any of us down. you've been pretty consistent in the past and it's only natural to want change. whether in your career or life.

please don't feel like you NEED to update this blog because it's YOUR blog. do whatever you want with it.

thank you for everything so far!

ce monde déconnecte les gens, il le met devant tout un tas d'écrans avec la promesse que de cette façon la vie sera plus facile
il faut faire les choses à son rythme, ce qui t'importe, ce qui t'émeut

Twina said...

You opened my eyes to a new life dude. I wouldn't be who I am today without you and your blog.

Unknown said...

just keep on doing what you do!!!! no matter the concept of cool.. just do your own cool damn it.. god damn it how is something supposed to be cool if you over think it! and anyways it's always a bunch of people coping other people. i'm tired of the new cool stuff, if you want you can try to emulate the 2000s cuase the 90s are already out! ..... this is retarded.. that's why i came back here and the new futurecop! track is totally rad!!! oh and by the way back in 2009 i learned illustrator thanks to you it's very useful thanks! keep it up!

Emily said...

Duuude. What have you been up to? at least post to let us know you're alive and well. I miss you, as well as others I'm sure.

It may be the vodka talking but SERIOUSLY. I MISS YOU. Found an amazing blog: http://www.thefoxisblack.com/
Combines illustration and music. But it doesn't compare to the empire you have built.

SERIOUSLY. Ugh. I'm sad now.

I miss this blog.

Bashar said...

We should make a fanpage where we can share new music with eachother. Or just use this comment section...
I miss the dude, but we the cool kids are now old enough to take over his role :P. It might wake the big giant ;)
I'll regularly check this page to see if there are others interested in this idea.
We could make new HEY KIDS! mixtapes together. It's not the same, but he has inspired us all and we can't let this community die.

Still hoping...

daniel said...

Hey, wrap up your stuff and get up again!!!
I want you doing something great on this world again. Whatever it is let me know!
I really miss your nice selections meanwhile trying to come up with a nice compilation but I suck.
Hope you are up again!!! Much blessings to you
