Haulix Weekly Update #67 – “You Don’t Win Friends With Salad”

Hello, everyone! It is Friday once again, which means like many of you we are trying our hardest not to watch the clock tick away the final hours of the work week. Some of us do this by burying ourselves in work, while others try and get as far away from anything resembling a timepiece as possible. For me, it’s music that kills time, and this week nothing as consumed more of my free time than the awesome talent of Chela. Check out “Handful Of Gold” and feel the hours melt away:

Each and every Friday we like to take a brief break from our regularly scheduled programming to update and reflect on everything happening at Haulix HQ. We are far more than a music blog, as many of you already know, and posts like this give us an opportunity to share more our efforts with all of you.


We have been releasing a series of minor platform updates throughout December, but this week our releases were kept to a minimum while our development team put in long hours toward completing a new email release we hope to have out early next week. This may very well be the last product update of 2014, and it will be released alongside a rundown of every major advancement made over the past twelve months. 2014 was a wild year for us, and we hope you will join us in celebrating everything we have accomplished.

On the blog end of things, a trip to the midwest kept editor James Shotwell’s ability to conduct and edit interviews to a minimum. Still, we put together a slew of great original columns, as well as a one of a kind podcast about the struggles of raising a child who wants to work in entertainment. We’re incredibly proud of this content, and we encourage you to experience it all. Here’s a quick rundown of everything produced in recent days:
