Wipe your feet on the welcome mat

Blogging Comments Off

Hey!

I’ve decided to make a personal blog/page about me and have this site also serve as a portfolio/CV for my future. I aim to actively blog and post ideas, delusions, rants, dreams and knowledge on this site. I’m mainly a creative person, so expect many music posts! I really love music.

I’ve had a blog on Blogger. http://nieldefault.blogspot.com but I wanted more freedom and something more professional. You can go and read there about my previous posts – if you like. Just, when you come back please wipe your feet on the welcome mat, because I aim to really improve my writing and leave that mess behind. Not that it was bad; I know I can do better. Also this site will improve tremendously (theme change!) in the upcoming week or two as I work out the widgets and find the useful tools among the woodwork.

Oh and while you are here, add me on Twitter. @nieldlr

Peace,

Niel

Update: I’ve uploaded my old blog’s posts. So enjoy them here if you like. Now to categorize and tag them all. Also, uploaded this great theme!

2009! Oh yeah!

Hey peeps,

what is up in heezy?
Ok, rather lame.

I’m about half a month late, but I would to congratulate you all on a awesome new year. 2009 I feel is going to be epic. I aim to write a lot more about music, poker, language and experiences.

I joined a LexiBlog: a blog about languages and world cultures. I just finished my first post there. I’ll be writing there sporadically on my language adventures.
I also recently started jamming online poker and have been finding it most fun. I’m playing on Piggs Peak Poker mostly and yesterday I’ve finally doubled my bankroll. It’s a great feeling and I hope I can stay consistent. I feel there’s a lot more to study on poker.

Also, I must sadly say that I’m not going to play RAMFEST anymore as Sparkyboy. Other obligations arose that I had to take priority to. However, I’m fast at work on a new EP which will be released very soon and I’ve been working on a Muse 8-bit collaboration! That will be out soon as well.

Also, congrats to Heath Ledger for winning the Golden Globe.

Peace,
Niel

A neglected blog…

Blogging Comments Off

When I started this blog, I set out to be active in this blogging endeavour, but alas like most blog missions, it fails after a few posts.

However, I now aim to pick it up and at least try to post two blog posts a week. After reading Luca Vincenzo’s awesome blog about the South African Music scene:
http://lucavincenzo.blogspot.com/

I realized, shit son, I’m wasting my valuable musical interest by letting it rot in my brain, but now that rotting knowledge will spew forth into a new brain zombie. Let it run free my friend.

Peace Out,
Niel

A Penny for my Thoughts!

I slowly drop a penny into the blog vending machine. I hear it clink and clank down the tubes of the Internet. I press Accept and out comes my life.

“Enjoy it,” it said.
