Writer's Block





When one door is closed, don't you know, another is open” – Bob Marley

I have seen things reach their finale in more ways than one. I walk around Montreal and some parts of New York to see stores that I grew up visiting or shopping at closed or about to close. Television shows have had series finales and even some characters have been killed off after twenty years. 


I spoke with a local producer/DJ one summer and asked why the monthly party he was associated with ended at a popular venue. His response was that it was best to end it on a high note rather than have it turn to a word that could in no way be associated with high note.


The idea to create this blog came to me in 2008 after being inspired by the blog of a former local columnist/DJ. The logic was that if The Suite Delight blog developed a following than the readers would be inclined to tune in for my radio show.  However, that presented me with the tasks of promoting not only a radio show but a blog as well. 


I transferred a good amount of creative energy into this blog and the radio show over the last few years. The results were my learning that The Suite Delight show was among my former radio station’s most visited web pages and topped the list on some weeks. After months of disillusionment, that news was confirmation that my efforts were bearing fruit.


It hasn't been easy to blog lately. It had been months since the last posts. I was sitting on a bank of posts for a while and just recently posted them. I've wanted to write more but I haven't been able to. I used to bring paper and pencil almost everywhere I went to write rough drafts.  I have tried to write but it was either too late, I was too comfy, too tired, too preoccupied or had no inspiration. At the moment of understanding I wasn't going to write, I realized I can't write as much as I would like and that this day was approaching.  

This is probably also the time to let the cat out of the bag. I've been working on what I consider my musical masterpiece for the last 3 years.  It is a DJ set list of the best songs I'd want to unleash on a crowd. It consists of personal favourites as well as the best songs I've discovered or heard for the last few years.  These are songs that I've never played on my own Suite Delight radio show or any fill-in guest DJ sets for any other radio show. I haven't even played these songs out in public because they are inspired and designed for a specific Montreal dance floor.  This set list I've been curating won't spin itself. My goal now is to reach a platform that will allow me to deliver this masterpiece. I have been blessed with the opportunities to perform live DJ sets.  That has been where my focus has shifted for at least the second half of 2015. With the new year upon us, I have resolved to direct my energies towards becoming the best DJ I can be. 


I have been proud to have had the visitors, readers and subscribers I achieved over the last eight years.  I thank you for inspiring me to continue to write on the blog for the time you did.  

I guess you're reading the last written Suite Delight blog article. Everything after this post would be for the purpose of promoting my radio show on CKUT 90.3FM, playlists, live DJ sets or any mixes I might create. 

If you haven't already, please make yourself familiar with the links below to bring you up to speed.


The Suite Delight new time slot is Tuesday morning 12am-2am EST on www.ckut.ca & 90.3 FM radio in Montreal.

I was curious if you ever thought of changing the page layout of your blog?

Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people
could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one
or two images. Maybe you could space it out better? https://adamfantacy.tumblr.com/
