Week 3 Pick

Week 3 Pick

These pics that I’m posting are all Monday’s during the beginning of the week. Facing forward, I notice a considerable difference. I’m going to post another Week 1 pic of my nasty belly. The difference is cool, but I’ve actually gained weight.

I understand that it’s muscle weight, but I don’t know of any 5’8″ that are supposed to be naturally 197 lbs. That was disappointing. Still, I’ve never eating 5 times a day either.

Right now, I’m consuming 2200 calories a day. I think that’s more than I’ve been eating before, but way more healthy.

We’ll seel

Week 2

Week 2

Eating 5 times a day. No alcohol and no sugar. Just water and healthy foods. Don’t know if I’ve lost any weight yet, because I don’t have a scale!

Welcome Back!

I just wanted to say that I’m back on the grind for a few different reasons. Since my last post, I switched up my music strategy and started working with other artists more. Namely Breaking Day, a pop group that I started back in April 2011. Things have just barely started to move with them, but people can see that they are really good.

I also decided now to get back on the artist train for a little bit as well. But, before I start working on music, I need to get back in shape. I started working out, doing Insanity by Shaun T. I did it for about a week, two weeks ago, but I wasn’t dieting. Exercise without diet, doesn’t work that well. So yesterday, I ate the right food and I worked out. My body doesn’t feel like it going to fall and that’s good. The meals are hard because I don’t sleep on the same schedule. For instance, today I didn’t get up until 10am. I didn’t start eating till about 11am. That’s not good when yesterday my day began at 9am. But I’ll just follow procedure and eat my last meal at 11pm tonight.

Meals like this are not exciting, but they get the job done.

I am but a shell of my former self (several years ago). This is not pretty.

So here you have it. This is what I look like at 37 years old. Its time to change a few things. In a few weeks I’m going to cop some supplements from the Body by Vi challenge. I just haven’t made the call, because I don’t want to be sold when I already am. It’s kind of an important step in my process of becoming a self-made millionaire.

R&B Singer Maskerade Makes Major Impact with “Unbreak Your Heart” Video

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , on November 21, 2010 by Maskerade

R&B crooner Maskerade, a singer, songwriter, and producer from the Inland Empire in Southern California, has released the music vidoe for his first single, ‘Unbreak Your Heart’. Already, the video has caught the attention of several major music sites and the buzz continues to grow.

Inland Empire, CA (PRWEB) November 21, 2010 — R&B/Pop Sensation Maskerade has been singing, writing, and producing heartfelt music for over 10 years. Now he is working to build steam with this new record as he tries to create anticipation for his forthcoming album, ‘I Am Maskerade’, due in stores early 2011. Several leading music sites have placed the video with great comments and results. Maskerade hopes more will come soon.

The plot of the video follows Maskerade as he watches his leading lady along the shores of the California coast. Flashbacks of a once happy relationship grace the screen as our hero works up the courage to ask his love back into his life. Directed by Christopher James, the video stars the beautiful Andrea Lynem, and a fully modified 1962 Chevy Impala.

“I told Chris that it was just going to be me, the girl, the car, and the beach,” explains the soulful singer. “I knew it had to be simple so the audience could connect with the song right away, through the lyics and the song.” Many viewers have done just that. One listener comments, “This is an absolute breath of fresh air!” on iTunes here. Advent Outpost blogs, “Solid Track!” here.

‘Unbreak Your Heart’ is availble on iTunes and other leading MP3 sites as well. The video first hit the net on Everyoneloveshiphop. Within the 36 hours of release it landed on Singersroom, Hiphopspy, Zillasays, and Thatcrack, a formidable mixtape site. FourFive World Music (ASCAP) is the music company behind the Maskerade movement and expects to see even greater results with this record.

FourFive World Music is an independent music publishing company owned and operated by Toma Johnson. FourFive World Music is currently seeking major label representation for Maskerade. Orlando Flintroy Management is currently handling management for Maskerade.

Pledge Music Video Log – Day 4

Maskerade: I Am Maskerade update: Video Blog – Day 4 http://lnk.ms/GBWj1

Today I had a great meeting with Evalyn Salcedo. A friend of mine from the Philippines. She’s very excited about the possibilities of my music over seas. There is a lot of competition in the USA with the accessibility of music software. Beatmakers, singers, and songwriters are popping out of the woodworks. So maybe, just maybe I can break a little bit in Asia. Who knows?
What I do know is that I’m ready for anything. Working for the man and not the music is just not for me. It’s always been about music. That’s the only way I’ll be happy with this life that I’m living.

Shout out to Kellyne Clapper and Terrance Allen for pledging with me. Much appreciated!

Take care everyone. See you tomorrow.

Maskerade Launches Pledgemusic.com campaign

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , on November 1, 2010 by Maskerade

Today, November 1, 2011, is day 1 of my Pledgemusic.com campain. My upcoming album I AM MASKERADE is been in production for about a year. I’ve taken my time on production and release, because I wanted it to be not just my best effort, but the best from anybody out there. I’m not talking about just independent R&B and Pop either. I mean better than the commercial music that you hear out there.

I feel like if I write the best album on the planet, then that will give me a fighting chance to make it in this business. I think Pledge Music, is offering a great opportunity for artist to get out and fund their projects. I feel like they are on my side.

Over the last few months, I had been studying Ariel Hyatt’s book, Music Success in 9 Weeks. It taught me a lot of things. The main thing that I came with was the underlying theme of the book. I have to be a constant marketing and promotion machine for my own music. When you’re a signed artist, there are other people doing these things for you. Independents do not have the luxury of gigantic staffs. All we have is the skin on our backs and the pennies in our accounts. Oh yeah, we got blood, sweat, and tears too.

For these next two months, I have 2 things in mind. Radio spins and Project funds. I’ve already released the first single, “Unbreak Your Heart”, to radio and currently in production of that video as well. Currently I’m gathering my list of radio stations to contact and see if any are interested in breaking the record.

Funding the project is the other issue that I have to worry about. I don’t doubt that this album will get manufactured. The thing I’m hoping is that my family and friends can help me lighten the blow. That’s all I need is help. Wish me luck! 🙂
