La La Land Talk on LA Talk Live - Good Times!

Categories: Journal | News

Microphone
Aloha you dudes! I haven't said hellooooooo to you all in quite awhile, and for that I'm sorry. Let me make it up to you!

Earlier this month, I had the honor of being invited to talk and hang out with Brett Chapin and Dorothy Dillingham Blue on their show La La Land Talk (on La Talk Live).

Basically I got to come down, hang out for a bit before the show, and then enjoyed a full hour of talking on the air and playing a few songs for them. It was sweeeeeet, and so much fun! I'm pretty sure I made an audio recording of my own performances somewhere (I'll have to get back to you on that), but in the meantime, here's a copy of the entire episode, that they've posted to youtube: [...]

Sucking at Piano, I Don't Hate My Fans, You Don't Hate Me

YO peeps,

It's 6:15am and I should definitely be going to sleep instead of writing this. Yay me! I'm just in a ranty mood right now. Actually I'm in a ranty mood lately. I was hanging out with my mom after the gym last night, and at one point I realized I had been talking nonstop to her for like... an hour. I literally was talking and talking and talking about every fine minute detail of the most inconsequential things. Shit like... the statistical probability that someone would have a certain personality profile because they watched some stupid movie.

I think its because I've been working reallyyyy hard on some programs the last few months and I just crossed a major barrier where I can sort of relax, and not program, and so now I'm basically going insane...

Hey Fans ... I don't hate you


So yeah, I want to rant about something that happened a little while ago. Its not super bad but its kind of driving a nail through my brain right now. I received a friend request on facebook from a girl who seemed pretty nice. Wondering if she was a bot, or if maybe she had made a mistake by trying to befriend some random aging computer nerd on facebook, I asked if we knew each other from anywhere. [...]

I Just Dropped In - Big Lebowski Cover

Categories: Journal | News

Hello you dudes! I know its been awhile since I've sent out a newsletter. If you don't remember me, we probably met briefly while I was holding an acoustic guitar somewhere, or perhaps you sent me some sort of instant message online and I replied by trashing your inbox with free Mp3s.

Anyway.

I recorded a new cover song a little bit ago. Its not much but I thought it'd be fun to do. Its the song "Just Dropped In" by Kenny Rogers, from the movie "The Big Lebowski". It's from the scene where Lebowski gets knocked out and has a hallucination/dream where he dances and struts up to grab a pair of bowling shoes from Saddam Hussein, then becomes a human bowling ball that looks up girls skirts haha. You know the one I'm talking about. [...]

Hey you dudes!

It's official - I've made all my music free!!

As I wrote in my last blog, I've decided it's more important to me than anything else, that everyone has the chance to own a copy of my music - and not just one or a few freebie tracks - I mean all of it.

Too many times, I've had fans message me about only owning 1 or 2 songs because they couldn't afford more and didn't want to pirate my music. To me, that's a tragedy. That's enjoyment and good times lost because of money. Also I'm sure I've lost way too many potential fans when someone didn't listen at all because they couldn't afford to buy. [...]

I think all my music is going to be free

Categories: Journal

-I ....
Hello peeps,

So ... I've been dancing around this idea for a long long time, but you've probably already gathered from the title of this blog that I'm thinking about making all my music free.

Some of you are probably thinking "YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY", and I'm glad. You're the biggest reason why I'd like to do this, of course.

Others are probably thinking "Oh nyooooooo Mike! What about all teh moniezez omggggz!!!1"

You know what though? The funny thing about this situation is... I don't make that much money from music. Seriously. At least not from digital downloads. I do get lucky sometimes and make a ton of money selling CDs at a live show, or getting paid to show up and play music somewhere, or getting free money/merch to rep some company for a brief time. And of course the occasional fan will buy a T-Shirt. Those things are rad, of course. [...]

Hey dudes!

Happy Mother's Day to all the mama's out there, trying to do the best for their kids, and those soaking up all the glory for the years they've already put in.

If you're not a mom, give a mom a hug today!

And yeah... I guess you could say I didn't plan out the release date of my new single very well. As usual I was just really really excited about it and went "Well how about a week and a half from now derpppppp".

Wait no, maybe I did that on purpose just so you'd think it was funny and buy all my music lol. [...]

Yo Dudes!

I have a new single coming out yaaaaaaaaay

The song is called "I'm Such a Drag (Just Sometimes)". I know I know. Laugh it up, but that's the title I went for lol.

So yeah - at this very moment, you can already pre-order it on my little page at BandCamp. I'm setting the price at $1 as usual. Pay more if you can. Listen for free after the release date here or on Spotify and ish.

Also I think I keep forgetting to mention this, but if you really don't have the cash, you can still earn a free copy of this and any other Mp3. All you have to do is pretty much be awesomely supportive, then ask. I give stuff away all the time. Well maybe I'll wait a month or so after this one releases, but you know what I'm saying. [...]

Mike Peralta - Portrait in the Dark
Hello you dudes!

Well you've probably already heard the news. I'm participating in an event called "The Contested" at my local Sony Store, in Costa Mesa. They'll be featuring my photo and my music for everyone to enjoy, and vote on, and stuff. It's going to be an all around fun experience.

But before I can start, I need your help! The contest calls for a reinvention of one of my original songs - but you guys have to choose! So everyone head over to my 'Listen' page: http://mikeperalta.com/listen and tell me your pick of the following songs: [...]

My Interview on La La Land

Well hello there you dudes! I had my interview at La La Land with Brett and Dorothy this weekend, and had a blast.

If you guys don't know what La La Land is, its an indie broadcast base in Los Angeles (LA). It's made by LA actors, for LA Actors. Both hosts are active actors in the community. It's also a play on words... stop for a second... wait for it... ah, there it is haha. Kind of cool, huh?

Anyway, I was lucky enough to get another interview with them this weekend. They usually book many guests with lots to say in a short amount of time, so last time I was on there I think I barely had enough time to play a song and then talk for a quick minute before I had to jet. This time however, they allowed me a larger opportunity to play the show in/out with one of my songs (they let me play music as segments were starting and ending). [...]
