LIDO RAPOSO

Just for clarification purposes, I'd like to say that my political views are not necessarily the same political views of the people &/or organizations/businesses that I work with. In fact, as an American Citizen, 

"I Stand With President Donald J. Trump" !

Unfortunately, due to the incivility & ever increasing violence occurring in the United States today, I am no longer posting the names of my mentors & organizations/businesses whether they be in the musical &/or visual arts. The reason for this decision lies in the plain fact that I don't want any person or any persons working for any organization/buisness supporting me to be "attacked" due to this incivility in any way, shape, or form (guilt by association). In fact, I have a new wonderfully talented & gifted mentor as of last week to add to the list, but their identity shall remain anonymous, as well.

As I Tweeted recently, "Within Every Sporting Event, There Is Always A 'Winner' & A 'Loser'. Unfortunately, In INCIVILITY - There Are No 'Winners', Only 'Losers'."

I think it's fair to say that this is a good example of how opportunities (The American Dream) not just for myself, but for many others too can be limited because of these recent incivilities.

This does not mean that I am not continuously pursuing my work to reach "The American Dream". Nor, does it mean that I am hopping off "The Trump Train", but rather simply changing to a less clamorous cart within "The Trump Train" to continue my studies. I will continue to Tweet as needed & perhaps concentrate more intently on my studies with my mentors to reach my personal "American Dream" to share with all.

I will always continue to keep you informed monthly of anything new, within the "Updates" section of my Blog. Otherwise, procedures remain as status quo while I continue to study before being ready to produce and release (share).

I sincerely hope that this escalation of incivility is extinguished for the greater of "Our Country" & the continued pursuance of "The American Dream" with which this country was founded upon.

 

I'd like to begin by saying that "in the background", I am constantly working on projects. Therefore, I'm multitasking projects in which some projects can be completed in a matter of minutes while most projects require days if not weeks or even months.

Secondly, I can't list all the projects to you because I don't want to get too far ahead of myself and make any empty promises.

But, I will say that when all is ready to "properly begin", I hope that you will approve.

Just as preparing for any form of construction, it does take a lot of time, stamina, careful planning, and action.

If you have any questions, you can always contact me through this website and please, realize that this Website is the "Hub" of all my updates and work to date.

 

GOAL :

My YouTube & possibly Instagram & Vimeo account(s) will be centered around my art, while my Twitter account (@LidoRaposo) will continue to be centered around politics supporting President Donald J Trump & this Great Nation of which I am proud to be a citizen of.

Also, I will continue to support & join the good men & women who also, support President Donald J Trump and this Great Nation in a positive way.

I have consciously decided to make this support "my cause" in my artwork.

 

ETHICS :

As a DIY artist, I am studying as well as I can.

Just as I finish one series of studying materials, I discover a new different series of studying materials to also, study & apply.

There are 2 ways to approach this:

a) rush through the material & produce an "ok" product, or

b) take the time needed & produce an "acceptable" product

I choose the latter because that is obviously the best route to follow.

Just as any other student studying, one is not released (graduated) until one fulfills their earned credits.

Therefore, in choosing the latter, the student has their best chance to succeed in their field(s) of study(ies).

So, with that said, I continue on forward carefully studying to produce the best that I can to share with all.

Yes, "forever a student in life", but there does eventually come a time/moment to graduate & apply one's self & knowledge. And, those first few steps are approaching. Again, this Website is my "Hub".

I'm continuing to study carefully with my mentors & the organizations/businesses with which I am associated with.

I'm continuing to improve my musicianship & am gaining a better understanding of my tools (PedalBoard(s), Amps, Software Programs, Guitars, etc)

I'm working very hard to set the foundation on which to build what will hopefully be a promising future in the arts for myself & others. Thus, a journey evolving & following a mindset that will hopefully be pleasing to many.

 

FORMATS :

There are 3 stations that I use to make music/videos :

1) Music - consisting of writing music/lyrics, recording, mixing, producing, and mastering.

2) Visual Arts - where I choose different mediums to be mixed with film to later produce the video visualized.

3) Video - where I use a series of different video softwares to then produce & direct the video visualized.

 

POSTS :

I will keep this blog updated the first weekend of every month.

There may be times within the month that I will post regarding any special circumstances.

 

Thank you for your loyal & continued support!
