after a couple months of work, I’m happy to announce that this is real life is available today. to cut to the chase for those of you who don’t like reading artist statements, here are all your salient details:

-the record is free, but you can pay what you want and all profits go to 826 Valencia to promote youth writing.
-the awesome people over at indieshuffle put the record out with me
-I’m playing a CD release show in SF tonight (8/31) at Kimo’s (21+, 9PM, Polk @ Pine) with Hoodie Allen – if somehow you haven’t checked him out yet, you have to.
-if you like the record, share it with a friend — burn a cd, play it at a party, put some tracks on a mixtape for someone. or you could go the digital route and connect via facebook, tweet about it, vote on hype machine, or get in touch with me via email

I had so much fun making this — it’s called this is real life because as I was making it, a lot of things in my life seemed to fall into place, and I’d step back every once in awhile and just make sure that it all was real. I hope you guys get some of the fun out of this record that I got creating it.

the album was made mostly in june and july of 2010, primarily in san francisco, but I also composed parts of it in las vegas, williamstown, washington dc, big sur, mt. whitney, chicago, grand rapids, ontario, buffalo, and atlanta with the help of some of my family and best friends. thanks so much to everyone who gave feedback on the demos and supported the creation of this project — I really appreciate it and couldn’t have done it without you.
the record is 21 tracks, and features 50 cent, birdman, black rob, crystal castles, dfa, dmx, drake, eminem, fat joe, jagged edge, jay sean, jay-z, justice, kanye west, lcd soundsystem, lil wayne, lord tariq, lupe fiasco, madonna, mase, mgmt, mia, miike snow, nas, nelly, obie trice, onerepublic, p diddy, peter gunz, phoenix, placebo, red hot chili peppers, rihanna, robin thicke, samuel, say hi to your mom, sleigh bells, snoop dogg, something corporate, the big pink, the dream, the notwist, and the swell season, along with samples from movies, youtube, and people who left me voicemails.
sincerely, thank you for listening to my project — I hope you enjoy it,

-charlie

  50. There are incredibly a great deal of details like that to think about. This is a excellent point to start up.

I don?t determine if recommendations have emerged around things like that, but Most likely that a job is clearly referred to as a fair game. Both girls and boys glance at the impact of just a moment’s pleasure, throughout their lives.

  53. The Swiss language Rolex online available in five different grades with the top rank being referred to as Swiss language, the 2nd to 4th being referred to as Of japan and the 5th rank being known as Chinese. The dealers of Swiss language Rolex online have given this grading a whole to evaluate the peculiarity of the watches being assembled at different parts of the universe. The top rank Swiss language Rolex online are far-famed all more than the universe for their ponderousness, feels and looks which is just like the absolute ones and in event can well be incorrect for the absolute raw material.
