Old Man Plays Call of Duty Black Ops 4

What follows is my perspective as a 49-year-old man of Call Of Duty - Black Ops 4 and why I really wish that they had followed suit and continued some of the ideas from WWII. First off, I have to say that this game wasn't created with me in mind. I know that it's target audience is 13 to 25 and like last 5 or 6 releases I often have found myself to be the "Old Man in the Lobby".

Editing and Writing to Your Audience

As an artist of any medium, the hardest part is learning how to edit. To get to that point where all the fatty tissue and the cancerous cankers have been removed to reveal a tight well-done representation of what you are trying to express. I don't care if it's editing a novel, writing a piece of music or seasoning a dish, it can be so difficult to just let go of ideas, words, notes, and ingredients and just walk away. Part of this is how personal the work gets and how invested you get in the parts of that little child that you are launching into the world.

Resigned from Lefty's Live Music

Effective as of May 1st, I will no longer be a Talent Buyer at Lefty's Live Music. I will continue to work, promote and run all the events I currently have confirmed or a hold date on. However, as of March 24th, 2018, I will not be booking any new shows at Lefty's during the transition from being involved in the daily operations and bookings, to becoming an independent promoter. At this point, I plan on continuing to book and promote some selection show but no longer as an employee of Lefty's Live Music.

25 Venue & Promoter Commandments

A while back I wrote a blog that was 25 commandments that every band should follow. So, I thought it only fair that there should be one that discusses some of the things that venues and promoters should follow. I would be lying if I didn't admit that I have not broken a few of these over the years. However, whenever it was within my control, I did my best to uphold them.
