Alan Palomo Out of Ghosthustler

Alan sent us an email a couple of days ago about this, and then last night he told us we could share with everyone after he posted a Myspace Bulletin:


For reaso​ns both creat​ive and life chang​ing,​ I have decid​ed to leave​ Ghost​hustl​er and move on. Amids​t these​ circu​mstan​ces my bandm​ates have deeme​d it neces​sary to carry​ on witho​ut me; I wish them the best of luck.​ Expec​t great​ thing​s to conti​nue being​ relea​sed from the Ghost​hustl​er name and from my new proje​ct in the near futur​e.​


A disappointment for people who were expecting big things out of the group. We'll have more on this early next week.

believe you are important and the rest will follow(meaning so will others)

common as of late meaning a ton of smug ordinary artists writers musicians noise makers whatever about town lately

i am starting to believe it true meaning i am starting to see it whereas i never did before

i smell a big rat meaning there seems to be a power struggle happening and
i smell a record signing but it will be none of these smug "artists" for their arrogance will curse them.in the end it's all about hype in this industry.so nothing against ghosthustler just an observation.thanks stonedranger for making me understand what i meant.

...Or maybe it's a bunch of local music aficionados psychoanalyzing a simple announcement (one that preports to be nothing more than a darn shame) to death.

It's just a heads-up about a local band on a local music blog. Moving on.

I still don't understand what power struggle you are referring to, what a "record signing" is, and why you think smugness is a new thing in ANY walk of life?

I personally think smugness is awesome. I don't understand why people complain about egos in musicians/artists or anyone. Egos are awesome. They should be more common. Think about how much you avoid those bible pushing mormons, and then think about paying money at the door as well as a couple hundred, even a thousand other people, to watch someone sing songs. If they didn't have an ego I would be disappointed. Its like how smashing guitars is awesome.

What? You'll listen to Chromeo the Second the Second?

I avoid "bible pushing mormons" because I hate talking about religion. I pay money to see shows because I like music. I fail to see how egos factor into that analogy.

And I hope so much that this guy's next project is called Chromeo the Second the Second. Made me laugh.

because you're paying to see a person be express their personality... their ego....... its a pretty simple analogy... but i understand there are people who are uneducated god bless em.

Man even if personality and ego were synonymous I would never say to have ever gone to a show because I was all hyped to see them express their personality. And even if it was true, I would never admit to it for fear of looking like a jerk. And even if ego and personality were synonymous, then bible pushing mormons would not be egoless, they would have a different "ego"/"personality" than musicians.

singing songs is a function of the ego. if we all lived in the id, we would have no reason to create.

and btw, most of the smug "artists" you are referring to couldn't give less of a shit whether or not they are/were/ever will be involved in a "record signing"

dictionary.com defines ego as "the “I” or self of any person; a person as thinking, feeling, and willing, and distinguishing itself from the selves of others and from objects of its thought." if thats not personality then I don't know what is. Also, I read books.

Most of you couldnt even garner the same national attention ghosthustler recieved ( without even trying) and that makes you all mad or jealous. Go play in anonymity and forever be just a band that only your close click friends care about.

Maybe you should have also checked out the definition of personality, because what you just described sounds like self-awareness, self-conceit or consciousness of one's being. Personality is (according to dictionary.com) is "1. the visible aspect of one's character as it impresses others. 2. a person as an embodiment of a collection of qualities." Also, read more books.

Anonymous plato said...

self-awareness, self-conceit, consciousness? not sure how you got that, and I think you would have to spend a lot of time describing how (in the definition of ego) "distinguishing itself from the selves of others and from objects of its thought" is fundamentally different from "the visible aspect of one's character as it impresses others." By the way, when you were looking at those definitions did you happen to see #4? "the quality of being a person; existence as a self-conscious human being; personal identity." sounds an awful like those words you used... self-awareness, self-conceit, consciousness... in the words of fred durst "just think about it."

At this point these jokes are no longer funny. Just leave me out of it. Your Drama. Not Mine. If I am attacked for no reason I will defend myself. If you don't wanna hear me bitch then simply leave me alone. I just make music. I'm a musician. Not a poltician. Not a Soap Opera Star. I want no part in the Soap Opera of local scene politics.

p.s. I thought Ghosthustler had a pretty solid set at the Quick awards. Too bad it was the last in the line up. I'm sure they will all be just fine in future endeavors.
