Archive for January 2012
My Ravens took a "L" just a bit ago, and to help sooth the pain I needed to visit my one true friend in the world...SUPERXOFFICIAL. Seeing as the next match up is on the West Side, I decided to take it to the Bay Area with this one.
Heres a brand new project from The Team (Clyde Carson, Kaz and Mayne Mannish), featuring 7 new tracks for you to get Hyphy. Enjoy and since the Ravens went home, lets cheer on the next Harbaugh...GO 49'ers!!!!!

Wazzuup!!! Happy 2012 to all my SXO fans and viewers! I know its January 16th and I'm a tad bit late wishing a happy new year but hey...better late than never, right!
Truthfully I waited this long to make my first new years post because I wasn't sure what type of post it would be. I wasn't sure if this would be a "Thank you for coming, god bless and good night" type of post or a "Prepare for a whole new SXO with all new SXO stuff and SXO features with SXO blah, blah, blah" type of post. Lets be honest, SUPERXOFFICIAL has come a long way in 3 years. Much further than I thought it would come. Which brings me to why I'm sharing everything with you now.
When I first started this site I was in a pretty dark place. My work situation was f'ed up, my marriage was on the rocks, money was tight. It was rough. Really, really rough! I created this site as a medium to get out my thoughts. She (she being SUPERXOFFICIAL) didn't judge me, she listened to whatever I had to say and she was always a fan of what I was a fan of. A match made in heaven if you ask me. I was excited to come home to her every day and share what I heard or discovered that I thought the world should also hear. Without argument, she would share. Life was great. Then something changed. Not a bad change but a change that would involve sacrifices.
Shortly after I started the site I found a new job (an awwweesome one) and money wasn't a issue anymore. I also worked out my marriage and parental issues. Things were amazing but SUPERXOFFICIAL suffered. The very thing I created to lean on in my tough days began to collect dust when things became brighter. I still love her but I'm not sure how to let her go....or even if I want to let her go! I got an e-mail not too long ago asking where I've been and how I was "the spot to go to for amazing unsigned/ untapped music" (You know the best kind of music you find before someone blows up). I haven't responded to that e-mail because I'm not sure what the future of SUPERXOFFICIAL holds.
This post is either a prologue to something great to come or the close of something great that was. I don't know. I look at the smile on my wife's face when we spend time together and then I see my son with the SUPERXOFFICIAL logo as his iPod touch background. Success is in my future, only time will tell if SUPERXOFFICIAL is too.
