One of these days, I am going to put together all the words—and in the correct order—to perfectly sum up what it is that I have been instinctively working towards with this website over the years. Y'know, like one of those real proper 'About' sections.
From this site's origins as the 'Not A Record Label, Not Not A Record Label' called HI54LOFI RECORDS, to the more recent music blog version called HI54LOFI, and now in its latest iteration, HIGH FIVE FOR…, there has been a lot of changed directions and half starts—but the one constant that has always acted as the metaphorical haunted lighthouse keeper has been the long running tagline:
“This Isn't A Competition, It's A Collaboration”
Until I power up to the appropriate level of self-awareness needed to properly pen some kind of mission statement / manifesto, I'll just keep using the above video embed from my favourite movie, mixed in with the old faithful slogan, and I'll leave the rest of what this site is about as open to interpretation until I get around to finding all the right words.
Until that time, and until the finished version of this new site is ready, I'll be sharing a few things—mixes, sneak peaks, dumb stuff, etc—via an Advent Calendar on the home page.
And if all goes according to the plan I scribbled down somewhere but later spilt coffee all over—a more complete and better explained version of this site will be assembled in the New Year.
