Tontie was a mile stone for me. I've been living off and on in Nashville for almost two years and still have not had the chance to see a show at the Grand Ole Opry. But tonite I made that dream a reality. I remeber being 18 or 19 and watching Keith Urban and Brad Paisley preforming on GACs broadcast of the Grand Ole Opry Shows on Saturday nights. Ever since then I've allways wanted to see a show, especially since I made the desicion to move to Nashville. Serving tables right across from the Grand Ole Opry, I wait on lots of couples, famliys and friends that are going to see a show when I work on tuesday or Saturday night. For a while I've almost envied them because I had not yet attended. So a new friend of mine I was introduced too through my brothers GF asked me if I wanted to go see Rascal Flatts at the Grand Ole Opry a couple of weeks ago. It wasn't even a question for me. I knew this was a chance to see the Opry for the first time. My friend, Desiree had never been to a show either. We were both very excited. My car brokedown the other day so she agreed to drive. But I bought the tickets. I don't need to state the obvious that I like her and she likes me and it was a date aswell as just two friends going to see a country music show. It felt so right though going with someome who was also enjoying it for the first time. We ate the best kettle cooked pop corn I've ever had, and I drank a bud light draft with a lime. The whole expeirence was very surreal for me. Hearing the commcerials, and watching the engeneiir behind the soundboard made it all seem like a wierd dream. It felt right though. It was special. Rascall Flatts was amazing. They blew any expectations I had into the stratisphere and convinced me of their real talant. I only get to see them on youtube, or CMT, and even though they look just like that in real life, it still looks diffrent. Or maybe it just feels like that. Maybe its knowing that your in the balcony behind the soundbloard at the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville TN. This is the real thing. Kellie Pickler preform aswell as Montgomery Gentry. Both acts spectacular. And the country music dream is tangible. Mark Wills open the show and redeemed himself with me for his overtley catchy, over produced country singles I use to listen to on Big Frog 104 in Syracuse NY. Spending the evening with Desiree and doing something I love, Music, was all I needed from life at that moment. I'll never forget the curtan comming up and the lights going down and watching countyr music starts take the stage in real time and real life! I've come along way from that boy back home whos only exposure to these acts and songs and music was through some form of media on a computer or a TV screem. I have a new friend that I'm looking forward to getting to know, and I know I'll be going to alot of Grand Ole Opry shows this summer. Thank you for reading and check out pictures I uploaded from my IPONE to FB.

So my dad introduced me to this show called Breaking Bad. It is the most awesome show I've ever seen. I'm sure everyone knows what it is about. I guess I'm really out of the loop because I never heard of it before my dad introduced me to it.
So I really took to the character Jesse Pinkman played by Aaron Paul. Overall I thought the acting was fucking fantastic. But I really could relate to Jesse Pinkman and alot of his struggles. Hes just a lovable drug addict that has this human element we can all relate too.
Breaking Bad defiantly changed what I thought TV was. Two and a Half Men was my only show other that the occasional Mad Men episode. But now I am totally hooked on Breaking Bad. Thank you dad! lol. I'm just baffled that my dad found it before I did.
Now I'm not gonna lie and say that the whole drug and criminal theme didn't draw me in immediately. Cause it did. But the whole idea of a high school chemistry teacher gone murder and meth manufacture really attracted me to it. I wonder if I could do some of the things Walter White does? Some of it seems so far fetched, but again its just an awesome TV show.
So I think everyone should check out Breaking Bad. Especially my brother Andrew Marlowe who like doesn't get in to anything I like.
So fuck you bro, you should defiantly check this shit out. And the season four soundtrack is awesome. Check it out at youtube.com/charlesmarlowe27

So everyone, I've been working really hard on some new productions the last month or so. Ever since I got my new laptop and recording equipment I've been up all night trying to get these new tracks together. My first song is a euro dance style instrumentle called Love Never Dies. It features the Eurogate 3 in FL Studio 10, and I fell in love with that sound. The lead is the Hands Up lead sound in FL Studio 10. Definatly a Basshunter inspired song.
And my two new singles are Your Turnin Me On and I'm in Love with a Youtube Star. Both are available FREE to download at my reverbnation.com/charlesmarlowe. I'm very proud of both songs though they are both totally diffrent other than the techno basslines.
I'm in Love with a Youtube Star features myself playing electric guitar, giving the song what I felt like was a grungy rock sound over the FL Studio beats I made. Yes, I did write the song one night after watcing Jenna Marbles videos and thinkin how cool id be to write a song about a Youtube Star. The lyrics are kinda stalkerish, but I think it works. Let me know if I'm wrong.
Your Turnin Me On is defenatly a more dance kind of song, even though its slower than Youtube star. The slide show is available at youtube.com/charlesmarlowe27. The pictures for my slide show were provided by Joshua T Potter.
Joshua is awesome. He takes really good photographs, and we've been seeing him out with his camera at Trexx night club. Check him out at carjunkyphotographer.blogspot.com
So if you use myspace, facebook, youtube, or twitter, my music is available and ready for the listeners. I plan on taking my music in a dance, electronic direction, so any sugestions musically, or on gear, or software programs would be apreciated.
Happy Halloween everyone!

So since I've got all my new recording equipment I've been cooped up inside all day and night trying to produce my Techno album and having to do my brothers metal album. to say the least I've been staying busy.
Within two or three weeks I've been able to do some decent demos but I am a perfectionist when it comes to my own music. Somedays I get down, frustrated and discouraged. But I keep going because I must!
I may never be able to compete with the majors as far as the quality of my productions, but I can colaborate and use my own musical intuition and still strive for greatness.
I'm hoped up on energy drinks right now, so I suppose I'm rambling. But I am super excited about recordming with my brother and my friends and releasing a final project online. I have to. You cannot live off of yesterdays sucsess.
