As you already know, I have a list of 10 things to do before I graduate. Number 2 is to record a music video and put it on YouTube. Obviously, before I can make a video I need to have recorded a song. And well, I asked a couple people to use their studio but only 1 came through. His real name is Alex but his entertainment name is Glare Novice. Well, this post is in appreciation of him, Glare Novice.
Now, I don't mean to sound like I'm gay, even though most people are convinced I am, but I love this kid. I met him in economics and for those that don't know, that class is totally packed with Seniors all of whom I don't know. The best part is, they all look like they want to fight me. Anyway, after a couple months I got a friend request from Alex and obviously accepted. Scrolling down his page, I saw a link to DatPiff for his mixtape. I checked it out and I sincerely liked it.
About a week later I told him, "yo, I love your shit." As I tried heavily not to sound like a creeper, I went on to explain that I really liked his song "Before the Show Starts" as its melodic sound was real and sounded like it came from a real place of talent. Right after that he liked me.
After a while, he and I got to talking about his recording studio and I requested to use it. He kindly said sure and later today I'm actually using it to record a few songs. No, I don't really think I'll become a full-fledged rapper, but if I get good response, who knows. All I do know is that Glare Novice is a pretty cool, pretty talented kid and I encourage all of you to check it out.
His website can be found here: http://glarenovice.com/
I know, he's goofy looking, but he's my producer and hopefully a future musician. Don't think I'm going to start making blog posts giving shout-outs and promos to rappers in our school and stuff. I'm just trying to pay homage to a friend.
Oh and check out his show May 25th, I'll be there with my clothes off with GLARE NOVICE painted across my nipples.
