My album came from the print on Wednesday and it looks beautiful!!! Phew! Printing a record is risky business, as something usually goes wrong. My first album Oma Planeetta had some weird color defect and it showed all the powder on my face in the most intricate detail…The photo was supposed to look translucent, apparently. Not so.
My second album cover Savyja was just an incredibly horrible design. I shudder when I see it… (This time nothing to do with printing..) And I have plenty of other bad experiences as well.
Anyway, my point is…It is nice to be proud of a package in its entirety. God is in the fucking detail. Really, if you’re gonna do something–do the whole thing well! Know that you are doing your best, and really express yourself! I am tired of dealing with people who don’t have real passion for what they do. What a turn-on it is when they do!
And yes, as I’m preaching to you, I’m preaching to myself a little bit too. There are plenty of times, when for one reason or another I end up half-assing things. But I’m gonna try my darnedest to be aware of myself, and change that. Because, what’s the use of doing things, if you’re not putting yourself into it completely..? And while you’re at it, don’t even do things that your heart’s not in! …..@#$%#, man. Still learning this one….
