I Am An American Aquarian Drinker


Hi, so this blog is dead i'm afraid. My internet was down for a while and now its back i've started a new job and no longer have the time or patience to keep this running. I used to work from home 1 or 2 days a week so it was no problem uploading new stuff. But now i'm constantly out of the house and busy as hell on photoshop, FCP, After FX and other stuff, so that when I get home a computer is the last thing I wanna look at. My links were also dying at a very fast rate.

On the plus side I love the job, its what I always wanted and was working towards when standing in fields on film shoots in the middle of nowhere at all hours.
So thanks for all the comments, but I gotta get outa here. You can still get me on MySpace and the various boards I chat to people on.
If anybody wants to take over the blog, let me know.

Sorry to hear that, Dick,
Got some great tunes through your blog.

But fully agree with you. Spending less time behind a screen in your free time is a healthy way to go!

Thx again!

Oh man, that is terrible news, Dick. I mean, I'm happy for you that you have a great gig, but totally shitty news for me and all the other good folks who have been introduced to so much great music through your blog.

So, thanks for your generosity and a great blog. I hope you'll miss it all so much you'll reconsider. If not, good luck and all the best.

Hey man...thank you so much for all your work and dedication to sharing music with others - people that you dont even know. So, although I'll never have the possibility to thank you personally with a few cold beers, I send you a brotherly hug from Buenos Aires and wish you all the best for the future. Keep rocking. Steve

Top blog my friend, I will miss it dearly...

It became part of my daily routine, sort of like brushing my teeth.

Good luck with the new J.O.B!

And please for the love of G.O.D, will someone with at least half of Dick's musical integrity take over this blog.

Cheers from Canada...

Thanks for all the musical surprises you gave us. Hope your new job brings you as much fun as my two jobs bring me. Also hope you have enough time to listen to all that great music.
Next step is downloading the Coconut Records album and hear what last (?) surprise you have in store.
Good Luck!

You spoke of someone taking over the blog:

I would love to post some content to a blog with a established fan base, but I couldn't guarantee the same amount of posting you do (did)...would you be interested in opening it up to a few people (assuming anyone else is interested) so that we sort of take turns contributing?

If no one else is really up to it, I still would like to help out posting what and when I can (and would hate to see this blog disappear to the depths of the internet.)

Let me know. randybruder(a)gmail.com

Congrats on the gig.

I'm a film student myself so I can relate to standing in fields as a grip, runner, camera assistant, etc, while building contacts and skills. It's great to hear that it pays off eventually... :)

Thanks for turning us onto some cool albums.

What's your myspace mate?

Have a nice life !

well, congrats. But always beware The Man. He always wants to kill you no matter how much he smiles and tells you how good you are. Always keep a foot pointed out the door.

Thanks for all your posts

dick you are personally responsible for getting me permanently hooked on wilco, you crazy nut. and for that i thank you. i used to say to my friends/wilco fans that 'they could have their wilco; the jayhawks were far superior'.

boy was i wrong.

a thousand thanks for sharing the love, sharing your time, and all the fantastic music. serenity now will be missed.

see you at the happy hunting grounds...

I liked your blog, and love the fact that you went out on a Wilco lyric. If you gotta go, do it in style. Good luck to you brother. Cheers

Catshoe said...

Like the others, sad to see you go, I've enjoyed your taste in music here. Enjoy the new job. I know what you mean, 12 hours sat in front of 2 screens, when you get home.....

Zak425@gmail.com said...

Sorry to see this one go, was the first one that really caught me. I owe a a lot to you Mr. Darlington. If anyone is looking for something still surviving, check my blog out, i can only hope it is one tenth as good as this one. http://zak425.blogspot.com/
