Haulix Weekly Update #83 – “Remember Alf? He’s back…in pog form!”

Hello, everyone. Welcome the our company blog. The first weekend of May 2015 is upon us, and I know everyone on staff is excited to see Avengers: Age Of Ultron just as soon as we can sneak away from our desks. Until that time, we will be jamming this song, which we recommend you make the soundtrack to your weekend fun:

Each and every weekend 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.


I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but this week we do not have any substantial development news to share. Many of you know we are planning to relaunch Haulix later this year with a fully redesigned platform, but that is project is still many months away from completion. As big updates are made public we will fill you in on all the details, but to start we are making dozens of minor changes that don’t really warrant explanation. Don’t worry though, as I am sure we will have more to share soon.


If you were waiting for a recap last week and never saw one, we owe you an apology. Our time at Launch Music Conference was so incredibly hectic that we actually forgot to post a proper recap of all recent happenings around Haulix HQ. Since returning we have not slowed our efforts to better the quality of our content one bit, but we did remember to make room in our schedule to write this post.

As for new events, the podcast has been incredibly busy as of late. We have released three hour-long episodes in the last two weeks, as well as our first mini episode, which has a completely different theme than normal shows. You can find links to two of those episodes, as well as everything else we recently posted, below:
