Back on YouTube

Hey, it’s Alex. Thanks for reading. I want to tell you about my recent return to YouTube incase you missed it (people are busy and miss stuff sometimes, it’s cool).

I’ve made videos about lots of things recently including:

What life is like since I bought a boat
Getting an agent for my upcoming book
Studying at the Open University and being in an open relationship

There are lots of videos going out regularly; I’ve been told I’m making ‘old-school-style stuff that you don’t really see anymore’. If you enjoy my videos or other things, don’t be afraid to share them with others who may be interested to see them (or who may have stopped watching my videos but would consider watching again). I’m also posting stuff to instagram if you’re a person who has that.

Next Friday (November 3rd) I’ll also be launching a Patreon with loads of perks; at minimum, anyone who gives any amount can get their name printed in my new book about YouTube, out next year. Higher tiers include coming for a cruise on the boat, free lunch, a book club, YouTube video dedications and more.

Basically I’m back and I’m not going anywhere anytime soon.

Thanks for reading and I’ll speak to you next week.

Spotify playlists

Good time-of-day to you,

For years I’ve wanted to release an album called ‘Intro to Alex Day’ which would serve as a jumping-in point for people who are new to my music, a digital album that I could update whenever I release new songs.

I’ve since realised it’s much cheaper and makes more sense to do it as a Spotify playlist, so that’s what I’ve done. You can listen to Intro to Alex Day here. I’ve made other playlists too, including one for all the songs that I used as a reference when recording my newest album Split Infinities – you can find them all on my Spotify artist page.

I’m about to take a month off work because I’m buying a new home and travelling around the country with a friend. You’ll hear from me again when the work is finished or I have more to report :)

Christmas innit

Been a while. I was wrapping Christmas presents and remembered I had a mailing list and that if you don’t send a message out once every three months, they consider it invalid and you have to make everyone re-sign up. So, Merry Christmas.

Also, stop blaming 2016 for celebrities dying. It’s stupid, because a) it condemns a whole period of time, forever, merely on the basis of how many famous people you like aren’t alive anymore, and we’re better than that as a species; b) instead of dealing with the fact of death in a mature way, you’re blaming a calendar, which won’t serve you as well when your parents die; c) it ignores the fact that people die ALL THE TIME, and implying that things are somehow worse because you’ve seen some of this year’s crop on a screen is insulting to all the ones you didn’t care about, which means you’ve somehow found a way to not-care about them even more; and d) if you get to outlive your heroes, that’s you being lucky, because the alternative is that you don’t. If Carrie Fisher dies before you do, it means you still have the precious gift of life that she may be denied, and if all you use it for is to moan about the karmic injustice of a twelve-month Gregorian time period on Twitter, or emaili me to tell me I’m a prick for having an opinion, then not only will someone have lost their life but someone else who still has theirs will be wasting what they have left of it, instead of appreciating this brief span of existence that we have here to breathe and smile and be alive and do what those we’ve lost can do no longer.

Anyway, happy new year.

I’m gonna start making videos again soon, I just bought a new camera.

Wishing you a happy and wonderful end-of-year

Free gig this Friday

If you’re in Hoxton, east London this Friday, come see me for free at the Stag’s Head pub.

I’m playing a gig with George Reece and Natalie Shay – details are here.

Stay hydrated,

My new album’s online right now

Hey, this is Alex Day telling you about my new album Split Infinities, which is out right now.

It might be my best album ever – or my worst, it’s up to you to decide for yourself. Listen to it all on YouTube and do let me know your thoughts (as if I could stop you): click here!

And please do share it with whoever you think would like it. I’m very proud of it and I hope it pleases your ears. It’s now on Spotify, Apple, Google and wherever else you listen to stuff (except the radio).

So that’s my new fifth album which is out now to listen to, purchase and enjoy.

With kindness,
