Word of the day: dearth

dearth Noun (plural: dearths) A period or condition when food is rare and hence expensive; famine. (by extension) Scarcity; a lack or short supply.

YouTube update: Piano improv

A few days ago I recorded myself doing some impromptu chord sequences… some of which sounded kinda good, some of which sounded sorta meh. Check it out below, anyways. I’m no Jordan Rudess (lord, no), but I aim to get better with further practice on the theory side of music, and the uploading of more …

I am terrible

So you guys are probably wanting to know what crazy crud I’ve been up to. To be honest, I wish I could say that I’ve been really dynamic and awesome and I’ve been having a gay old time in the land down under enjoying endless success and self-satisfaction. It’s kinda my fault. I’m just not …

YouTube update 28/04/12

Bad hair year

So, as of landing in Australia (30th November 2011), I decided to grow my hair long. It is a nightmare. Hair actually takes a long time to grow. Like, long. I was half-expecting to be sporting the Jesus look by now. Instead, I’m starting to look like the 2006 version of Mike Portnoy. With the …

Yay!

We’ve emmigrated from OptusNet to Telstra BigPond, and finally have the freedom to browse the internet ENDLESSLY. We will be hard-pressed to let our new 200GB/month allowance run dry, but I think we’ll give it a damn good go. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’VE GOT YOUTUBES TO WATCH. …Incidentally, this explains my absence from …

New sidebar widget: 5 latest tracks

Here’s something my dad (sorta) suggested my blog needed. On the right-hand side of the page, just underneath that awesome picture of my face, you can now listen to my five latest tracks via embedded audio. These are the same higher-quality MP3s that get uploaded to my YouTube channel, so hope you enjoy listening to …

YouTube update 11/04/12

Sorry updates have been so sparse on this blog thingy as of late. I need to find stuff to get angry about and then I can return to spewing my standard vitriolic ramblings. Anyway, two new tracks for you to get stuck into. Both upwards of seven minutes, by the way. I think I’m letting …

YouTube update 26/03/12

It’s been entirely too long. Yesterday, after getting internet back for realsies, I uploaded five new tracks to my YouTube channel. Find them below. 😀 More to come pretty soon, hopefully. “The Raven’s Nest” ______________________________________________________________________________ “Infrared/Ultraviolet” ______________________________________________________________________________ “Twilit Jungle” ______________________________________________________________________________ “Vapors” ______________________________________________________________________________ “Encased”

On the right-hand side of the blog over there, is a replacement image for the one I made yonks ago which involved me putting on stupid amounts of clothing, an old fleece, a pair of shades and headphones, and standing up …
