We just got back from RTX, and we got sick as hell -- not from booze, but like a cold / flu. I sound like Barry White, which reminds me I should record my voice right now.
Thank you to all of you who made it there.
I can't begin to tell you how amazing it is to have someone you've never met before say "hey, I liked this song," or "what software do you use," or "hey, I see you have a black pass, what do you do?"
Martha and I had so many heartfelt conversations with people we'd never met or known from the site that we were humbled at the proportions of the growth that this community, this empire of goodness, has experienced since I first joined, as a fan, in 2003.
I've said this before, but if no one listens to a piece of music, does that music really exist at all?
So thank you, you, people that I know, or don't know, or just met, for the greatest gift you can give to someone who likes to make music: your ears, and your hearts. (Your booze is just extra icing, and getting tossed in the pool extra extra icing.)
And thank you, Rooster Teeth, The Greatest Company in the World™ for creating this empire of goodness.
P.S. Martha, you sounded awesome.
