Hi all – I’ve decided to wrap up this blog.
I’ve thought for some time I might be able to keep doing occasional posts, but I don’t think that will work—not for me, anyway.
The main reason is to do with focus—I find when I am writing posts, and even commenting on other blogs, that I’m constantly running the words through my mind. I’ve been known to go for a walk around the block and on returning enthusiastically add a comma to what I had just written before the walk—the perfect comma.
This is fine when the project is what you want to be doing with your life, but that’s no longer the case for my blog and me.
Mainly I want to focus a lot more on our musical endeavours, and to that end I’ve done some considerable tweaking of our website The Sound Sculptor, and have been building up some of our other profiles. Because, you see, in the past few months our sound business has been taking off. We have been busy, and we love it, and we want more of it.
I’ve also recently done a couple of websites for very good friends of ours. One is a site for a Melbourne artist and photographer. You might want to check out Wayne’s gallery.
Since my last blog post in November we also did a weekend music and arts festival—we were in charge of sound on the main stage. This meant planning the sound equipment, doing a large slice of the sound engineering, and dealing with “issues”. It was intense and we loved it.
The site was really pretty—here are some pics:

path to the camp ground

I just want to say that I have never seen myself as a “teacher” of physical immortality, mainly because I think it will happen to everyone anyway, whether I do this blog or not. I just intensely wanted a blog and thought this might be an unusual topic – to me I was an opportunist riding a wave – heh. The wave will have to happen with me focusing on a different wave (I always did see physical immortality as a context).
One annoying thing is that subscribers for LLF is the highest ever, lately. But maybe this is to do with the way it gets calculated—my subscribers have gone up before when I haven’t done a post for ages.
The future for LLF
I’m going to leave little LLF up on the internet, and will probably gradually convert him into a static website.
I eventually did get to buy the dot com version of letsliveforever—maybe I’ll think of some hugely lucrative project for that domain name. And maybe I can plaster LLF with ads and make heaps of money from the huge amount of search traffic he gets – LOL
Thank you to my blogging friends—you have no idea how much I have appreciated your friendship (well actually, I suspect you do). I won’t list you here, because I’ll end up leaving someone out, and we can’t have that! You know who you are. Thank you.
And good luck to you all with your projects!
I know I’ll be keeping in touch with many of you via email and Facebook—I’ll probably delete my Twitter account because I can’t stand Twitter!
To those of you who have been reading this blog but I haven’t got to know you, thank you so much for taking an interest, and I wish you all the best, too.
See you around!
– love from Rob x
PS (Jan 15, 2010) – I’ve suddenly got a new project – a website about righting the wrongs the state government here are doing to our music culture, Music Doesn’t Make You Violent.
