Vinyl Vault Update

As we all know Rob has stepped down from the blog & I want to thank him for all the help & time he has put into this blog. Like he mentioned the blog has died down and no one including myself hasn't been active as we should have been to keep the blog alive. I know we all have a life outside the blog. For the last month or two I've been really busy like a dog with fixing my new home, dealing with my family, deejaying, & thinking about other stuff I want to do and that's making music. Me and my brother BFiggy have been talking about getting together to make our own studio in his house so we can start producing music and hook up his deejay equipment to make mixes. Ever since I got him a program to help him with his mixes he has been hooked! He has created his own blog, his own fan base on face book which at the moment he has a following for his mixes, he's getting alot of love from people in Italy. He's even thinking about getting back into the club scene to Deejay & I'm so glad this is all happening for him. So I'm doing everything I can to help him out. In about a week or two we are going to guitar center to buy some studio equipment. In the meantime I've been taking tutorials on ableton live 8 and doing heavy research on whats hot and getting every hot plug-ins and vst's possible. I'm going to put my 100% into making music just like when I wanted to start deejaying. Now of course all this is going to take alot of time to learn and it's going to fade me more and more out of the blog. And I hate to say it but this blog won't last maybe another month before I decide to give it up and close it for good only because to run a blog like this one you really need to put in time & effort to run it.And that's one of the reasons why Rob stepped away for good because there's no consistency. Another is ripping vinyl, I haven't had a chance even to hook up my DJ equipment because my attic needs work before I do so. If you guys remember I started another blog for old mixtapes and I couldn't keep up with that either so I just deleted the blog It's like I'm wasting alot of time on doing stuff that I know I'm not going to keep steady with and it isn't fair to other people. I've made a few mistakes while running this blog with giving certain people the password and I shouldn't have done that & I want to apologize for it. So for now the blog will be open but things are going to come to a end soon...I'm sorry to say it but it is...I just don't have the time for it anymore and I want to proceed with other things that might help me with my deejay career. I enjoy sharing my vinyl with everyone and I met some great people here. If I didn't deejay at clubs then I would have made the blog as my full time thing. But I'm bad when it comes to Multitasking 2 blogs and doing everything else I enjoy doing at the same time. I finally realized I'm not good at it. It's either one or the other for me. And I just know that I'm going to bring down the blog even more. The C box will still be operating till it expire then after that I won't be donating any more money to keep it running. If anything changes I will update everyone but that's how is going down right now. Peace Up all....12inchjunkie

the vault should not end,it should be given a makeover, there are other free websites that we can continue doing this. we dont do this for thank yous, we do it cuz we love what we do. i know last year was a bitch and we are all busy and you junkie and myself are doing the same thing ( working on production and djing) so we can understand not always being here all the time. but alot of work goes into putting it up to just say bye. when we have time we post, i always didnt like the cbox as it was not in real time for me. i will hate to see it go but the decision is on you as this is your blog but i think it can still keep going(if its on blogspot or not ). think about it junkie. im working on ableton live big time and djing has started to pick up but will always try to have time to post here.

It is often difficult to catch up with a blog and keeping it going. 2010 I feel is going to make people change for the better but that doesn't leave the person immune for adversity. Tough challenges are being faced by VV fam as I observed their comments in the CBox. VinylVault could reinvent itself. But this only from one's opinion. I am just a guest like everybody else. 12inchJunkie thanks for the good times in sharing and knowing you man. Maybe not personally but the music we love made it worthwhile.TC and wish you much success in all you do. To the authors as well... HeRk,summonedknight,chicagojackin,Mastrchief,Benz, and also to BFiggie and NJDJ....Thank You VV! ONE LOVE Yo! Cheers! Peace Out!

Definitely Vinyl Vault shouldn't just close up shop. I hope that it may stay open somehow. But unfortunately we have those leechers trying to weasel their ways to get something for free and not contribute and not help out. Yes, not in the "comment" sense all the time. But he or she at least shouldn't act the way of being a greedy bastard & by not sharing and just "give me give me give me". Let alone not a "Thanks". Well, I hope those pukes that are that way can try to find these rare classics that were here at "Vinyl Vault" see if they can get them else where now. Good luck. More than likely they won't. It's been great here. Some of y'all have my email. I'll still frequent visit when possible in hopes that we (Vinyl Vault) remain open. Like my posted comment in Rob's final post read: Thanks guys. I really felt at home here. I like the company while it lasted. And glad that I stumbled upon this great blog. No other like it in my honest opinion. Not that I know of any either. This was one spot I frequented and loved. It's been real. Any plans anyone has, and if it works with my everyday life as of late, let me know. Holla!! -MARC
