Joan Lindo interviews Mark Gibbs, son of the late Ian Gibbs: architect, designer and the first owner of the Valjour Royale estate, before he sold it to my father the late Rupert Lindo.
Coming to you from her Valjour Royale Estate in Kingston, Jamaica here’s a message from Joan Lindo on this Mother’s Day 2022. Happy Mother’s Day to my powerful strong and resilient mother!
As we are about to close the final chapter in 2021, a year full of torture, terror, hardship, pain, destruction and many lives lost due to the Covid infections, I give thanks to the almighty God for spearing my life and sending angels to help me fight this vicious war, that has been waged against me. I do appreciate the sincere assistance.
As many of you know, my mother and have fallen prey to demonic land developers among other devious and unscrupulous entities. We have been terrorized and threatened on several occasions. Throughout this bitter, evil, conspicuous time, I was also illegally deprived of electricity. After seeing the involvement of the power company with the syndicate, fighting to make my mother and I give up on our estate, I decided it best to setup our home, Valjour Royale with independent solar power. I am very proud of my achievement in successfully installing and maintaining the system. Most of all, it feels very liberating to have been able to put out this new album using 100% pure renewable energy.
I would like to thank my powerful, strong, resilient, courageous and loving mom. She has always been there for me, providing hope, love and support. She has given me strength throughout my career, despite the terror and hardship that we have been enduring. Thank you to my fans, because of you my previous album entitled “The Fight Is Ours” managed to surpass 150,000 streams worldwide, very good for an independent artist with no label or promotion team behind me.
I’d like to thank the Government of Jamaica for their devotion and continued assistance. I stand tall and proud in the face of my adversities to know that the Government of Jamaica is standing firm and resilient in helping its citizens overcome the atrocities they have been faced with. I’d like to thank my family for their love, devotion and continued support towards my mother and I. And to the friends who are there for us, we are forever grateful for your continued support.
This album would not have been possible without your help.
This album is entitled “The Real Truth” and was written, produced, mixed and mastered by me, Alexander Lindo. It is a depiction of my life, what I have been through and continue to endure. It is an album about strength, resilience, fighting and never giving up, no matter what obstacles come your way. This album is “The Real Truth”. I do hope that you will enjoy this album as much as I do. I have combined it with tracks from my previous album entitled “The Fight Is Ours”. All previous tracks have been remixed and remastered for higher fidelity. Do enjoy!
No Valjour Royale is NOT FOR SALE! No-one other than Joan Lindo and Alexander Lindo are authorized to accept money, development plans or anything else on behalf of our estate. No-one has any claim or ownership to our estate NOR have we signed any agreements with any entities regarding our estate. There will be no “takeover”, there will be no “war”. No-one but Joan Lindo and Alexander Lindo has any power or control over this estate. This estate is solely owned by Joan Lindo and Alexander Lindo. If you ever encounter any frauds or scammers claiming otherwise, do send them our way so that we can prosecute them. Any investments to be made, be sure to send them our way, otherwise they will never come to fruition! Thank you and F**k You!
Hello everyone, I stand here at Valjour Royale in complete darkness even after I have payed my light bill. What injustice is this? As many of you know, my mother – a widow and I – a fatherless child, have fallen prey to the wickedness imposed upon us by thugs, criminals, gangsters, land developers and hyenas / investors from the music industry.
We have been living a life of terror and hardship imposed on us by these demons for over a decade now. They have tried to tarnish our spotless reputation, defame and slander our great name, defraud us and have even tried to poison us on several occasions, using “friends”. They follow us everywhere we go to sabotage our business so that we will have no money, intimidate us and make our life as uncomfortable as possible with the hope that we will give up on our estate and our country as a whole and runaway.
These demons have went as far as to suppress and sabotage my musical career and block any form of progress or prosperity in our lives. These monsters befriend you, clone your phone to obtain your contacts, befriend and bribe them (if they are weak), turn them against you so that you have no-one to turn to and all in a carefully plotted conspiracy to steal our estate. Anytime that anything is done to resolve an issue, these termites go into another meeting to conduct more illegal conspiracies to sabotage every aspect of our progress and prosperity.
Meanwhile these groups of people infest the neighborhood with scammers in an effort to drive us out of our estate, issuing death threats, threatening to burn down our house if we don’t move out and chanting morning, noon and night things like:
“they have got to go”,
“we are going to kill them”,
“i am going to make sure he never gets back light, they have to move out”
“yes man, we have mashed him up, him nah get back no light”
“take away his light, now that is sabotage”
“mi nah understand dis yeah man, mi nah give him back him light, him haffi move out”
“we have cut them off for good, no light, that will get them out”
“dem nah wan come out, we ah go bun it down, fire”
Who would have thought that after returning home that we would be faced with such atrocities.
It must be known that we will never give up or back down from our purpose and what we own. We are here today and we are here to stay. I have placed this here on my website so that the world can see what my mother and I have been enduring.
Please keep us in your prayers because God knows that we need all the help we can get in conquering these enemies, bringing back peace, prosperity and happiness to our lives. No-one should have to endure what we are going through. It is cruel and inhuman.
An important message from Alexander Lindo at the Valjour Royale estate located at Mountain Spring, Jack’s Hill, Skyline Drive, Kingston, St Andrew, Jamaica. Alexander Lindo and his mother Joan Lindo have been the victims of several heinous plots because of who we are and what we own. Land developers, hyenas from the music industry and neighbors have been fighting every step of the way to defame, defraud, criminalize, intimidate, stop and block any form of progress or prosperity for both my mother and I, all in an effort to make us give up on our purpose and what we own.
When you are done watching the video above, my mother has done a video which goes into even more details and that video can be found at: https://valjourroyale.wordpress.com/2021/03/13/news-flash/
If you are the owner of prime real estate, be on the alert. Land developers & music industry hyenas will send scammers to destroy every aspect your life. They will send people to date you, marry you, poison you & your family in an effort to relieve you of your estate. They will bribe anyone who comes to your rescue, befriend anyone you do business with. They will stalk you, spread lies, defame you, all in an effort to block all avenues of income. At this point they hope you will give up on your prime real estate & give it away.
Another great review for Alexander Lindo’s album entitled “The Fight is Ours” is in. The Sounds Won’t Stop say “The Fight Is Ours” is a powerhouse of crushing pop rock that crosses boundaries into progressive, anthemic, and even orchestral rock and all with a seamless feel. An outstanding record from Alexander Lindo gives fans of almost any kind of rock plenty of treats and playlist worthy singles.” Read the article in all its entirety right here, a PDF is available here. Thank you for the wonderful review!
Logic Pro has always been one of the most powerful and popular DAWs on the planet. For many years it has provided all that is necessary to create a production from writing stage all the way to the mastering stage. Indeed Logic Pro is one of the most comprehensive DAWs ever made. Due to the program’s wealth of features, instruments and effects plugins I can only imagine, that it must be quite a daunting task to update. Kudos to Apple and the Logic Pro team for another great release.
Plugins Have Been Redesigned
Many of the built-in audio effects plugins have been redesigned for retina support. These include:
- Delay > Sample Delay
- Delay > Stereo Delay
- Delay > Tape Delay
- Distortion > Bit Crusher
- Distortion > Clip Distortion
- Distortion > Distortion
- Distortion > Overdrive
- Distortion > Phase Distortion
- Dynamics > Adaptive Limiter
- Dynamics > Limiter (Aside from these 2 limiters, the dynamics section got no love in this release).
- Filter > AutoFilter (Logic Pro’s comprehensive filter plugin has gotten a long overdue update)
- Modulation > Almost Every plugin in this section (with the exception of Ringshifter, Scanner Vibroto, Rotation Cabinet) received an update.
- Reverb > EnVerb
- Reverb > SilverVerb (No love for PlatinumVerb yet)
- Utility > Test Oscillator
- Metering > Correlation Meter
- Metering > Level Meter
- Metering > MultiMeter
- None of the Software Instruments (such as ES2 and EXS24) have received an update.
Alchemy Text scaling/rendering has been refined for a sharper appearance. For instance, on a monitor with a resolution of 1388×768, a plugin such as Alchemy scaled at 86% looks much clearer than it did in version 10.2.0
See screenshots below
The Splash Screen Is Back
The splash screen is back on El Capitan. Those LPX users who upgraded to El Capitan found themselves without a splash screen for quite some time. The splash screen provides very useful functionality such as to tell you what is taking place as Logic Pro X loads (as apposed to user thinking that the program has frozen). This update has solved this issue.
Name Plugins in the Plugin Manager
“There are two new columns in the Plug-In Manager that can be used to assign long and/or short names to each of the plug-ins. The longer name appears in the menu, and the shorter name appears in the plug-in insert.”
This has been a feature I have been asking for, for quite some time now. Very handy especially for plugin manufactures who love long horrendous names.
Export Multiple Regions
“You can now use the Export Region as Audio File command with multiple selected regions.”
Before you could only export one region at a time or all of them.
Bounce Multiple Tracks in Place
“Bounce Tracks in Place now works for multiple selected tracks.” Extremely useful for printing many instrument tracks to audio tracks in one go.
Track Stacks in Mixer
You can now create and flatten Track Stacks in the Mixer in Tracks view.
