Lil' Update

Geez…  All the weight I’ve lost, I’ve gained back.  This depression is too much.  I think I’m gonna make a doctor’s appointment and have him do something about it.  In the meantime, Mel is sleeping on the fucking couch.  At least that’s a start.  For those who don’t know what I’m talking about, please listen to Betty Wright’s “After the Pain.”  You’ll know exactly what I’m feeling, and why I just can’t seem to let this stupid muthafucker go…  Seriously, listen to it.  

Detrevolution is also delayed – but at least it’s only for a week…  I spoke to the pressing plant today – there was a small issue with the artwork, and I had to approve the new “proofs” before they could continue.  So now, instead of Sept. 30, I’ll have the album finished on Oct. 7th.  Personally, I’m okay with it – I’m just SO DAMN TIRED of things being out of my control.  And then to announce it on my site – how the hell am I gonna tell my fans?  Oh well, I guess they’ll understand.  One more week won’t kill me, or them.  And trust me.  The CD is well worth it.  

Well, I guess I’ll be going to bed early tonight – which means, before midnight.  Tomorrow morning, I’m starting my workout schedule again.  Dana’s coming over to work out with me, and I swear that if she doesn’t bring her ass here, I’m gonna dismiss her.  Period.  

OMG… I guess that “straight people” aren’t the only crazy people in the world…  My old “friend” Marvin (whom I only know from online) and I were chatting tonight.  And without thinking, I asked him when he had a free weekend to come up from Ohio to Detroit.  When he asked me why, I answered “because I want to see you!”  I even offered to pay for the ticket.  OMG, he flipped out.  He got all weirded out because he thought I had “other” motives…  Of course, I had to explain that I meant it in a FRIENDLY way –I was only trying to spend some time with my “friends!”  Only THEN did he calm down.  “Ohhh, FRIENDS, okay!”  What a fucking slap in the face.

Oh well…  One look on the bright side:  I have 3 Hostess Blueberry Pies sitting in front of me, and I only ate ONE of them!!!  The rest I’ll either save for later days, or maybe I’ll just throw them away – or give them to the boys.  

See u soon…

Well, for the fans out there... I've listened to Detrevolution (and no, I'm not sending it to you, even you the sexy hunky one who promissed me a nite of luuuuve) and it's fucking brilliant!
I'm not saying that because AC is a friend, but because it's true! Expect something refreshing, full of dark energy, sexual, moving, funny, spiritual, beasty and definitely über-danceable!
Obviously AC worked his ass off on this one because it's just plain perfection: the sound is incredible and the hour and 20 minutes passes very fast. You find yourself saying "what? it's over already? it was just getting started!"
Aaron, tu as fait un chef-d'oeuvre!

Aaaaaronnnnnnnn! Baby take a moment RIGHT NOW and stop whatever it is you're doing and BREATHE! I don't care if you're yelling at the kids or cussin' mel out right now. Stop it. Close your eyes and breathe deeply. Try not to think about anything for 5 mins.

Depression is a muthafucka, trust what I tell you. Everything that seems to be and go wrong will seem amplified, like, ten times. That's usually about the time where I have to start talkin' to myself... OUTLOUD (aka praying)! And don't stop until you feel relaxed.

Boo, you've got so much to be grateful for. You're so incredibly blessed but you have to surround yourself with love and blessings at all times. Especially at home. Which means get rid of ALL people and things that conduct negative energy. You have to because believe it or not, negative energy will get you and beat you down. So all negative things must go, MEL included. You'll just have to love that mofo from a distance. You don't have to be mean to him but you do have to send him on his way so that YOU can heal. Yeah, Betty Wright said, "After The Pain" but Stephanie Mills said, "It's Healing Time" and you can only do that after you've cleansed your house and yourself of "the dirt". Feel me?

Lastly, don't even worry about that record. The Universe has a way of bringing things to light when the time is right.

Much, much love and support always

PS...and call me "ANYtime you need a friend."

Hey, boogie. I applaud the way you're handling things actually. Matters of the heart are a muthafucka 2 deal with, U're gonna go through MANY emotions and I think the important thing is to let yourself feel them but at the same time, like Tori said, remember your blessings as well. Things will balance out in time. And one more week will pass in a flash and before you know it the whole world is going to know who Aaron-Carl is and will be rocking to Detrevolution! And to quote Mariah and echo Tori ... "anytime u need a friend, I will be here ... even if you're miles away, I'm by your side. So don't u ever feel lonely, it's alright."
