Great song Robert… and I appreciate the thoughts shared.
The Movie Industry and related (Art often inspiring art)
Yes, the “black and white films”… … Though, where did the movie potential peak? Probably somewhere in there… The B & W era.
Was it organic in the beginning? Or was it realized and co-opted… or rather ‘militarized’ from the onset? I think it has always been controlled, I mean it’s obvious — What movie has ever shared any ground-breaking truth?.. “Planet Of The Apes” comes to mind… with it’s original plot of mankind the dumb savage controlled by a select group, represented as apes, of a few different types ~~~ look around .
These mediums (e.g., movies, television, music, and others) have always been kept ‘at bay’, as “entertainment”. “Bread and circuses” if you will. From Shakespeare to the current. — All underlying elitist propaganda, ‘culture creation’, ‘programming’… with little to no brilliance seeping through the cracks. Though there occasionally is some, as you suggested … but overall a lot of talent wasted, and a lot of potential altered, for an ulterior agenda, with controlling ape-like moguls having the ultimate say. ~ Not to mention the ability to grope their all-to-eager to please dupes.
The internet, a blip on their radar screen… The internet, for now, allowing just about anything to be revealed… but who’s going to believe it? The truth … with generation after generation so thoroughly ‘dumbed’ down, i.e., ‘programmed’. ~ ‘As the internet is slowly reined in’… (The net cast, slowly reining in mankind… A virtual world wide web… ~ Who can escape it?)
“…Damn, dirty apes…”
Anyway, back to Audacity. Your “soundcloud.com/vuplounge/welcome…” song sounded great! https://soundcloud.com/vuplounge/welcom … -1/s-MQQbu
To what extent was Audacity used?
It did take a while for it to play… maybe you should export it to a more user friendly format… ? e.g., wave? (as I grow ever more put off by lossy).
Is .ogg a lossless format? I tried to download your song but it was showing as an HTML document, so I did not… It also shows as “private”. Should it be downloadable?

“Do you have another (nick) name than Black Dog that I could use for salutation? It’s seems a bit weird–just as if you were calling me V.U.P. Lounge…”
Crazy, I know, everyone afraid to reveal their true identity these days. Though, what is the true identity apart from a given strawman to be exploited? Ahh, to have such… I am more a dog than my own man in this grand illusion of enslavement we live. — If men were more honest they’d realize how true this is. I am a ‘black’ dog here, in the sense of a ‘black’ sheep. — To answer your inquiry, I prefer “Black Dog” at this point. I’ve yet to settle on a variation of this, which would be advantageous for exclusivity, and better ‘search engine’ results. E.g., “Black Dog Johnson”, John “Black Dog” Johnson…
