YouTube update 03/10/11

Just one video this time, but it’s without doubt one of my best yet – at 6:21, it’s definitely my longest ever, beating Built to Kill by 21 seconds. (Yes, the actual song is 6:21. The video is 6:23 but those are two extra seconds of silence, basically.) Also, strictly speaking, this is the one …

This post makes me sound old but I’m actually young

I was born in the 90’s. As such, I sort of feel regret at not having heard all the great bands of the decades preceding that time period. I don’t listen to enough music from those days gone by. I’ve always liked Black Sabbath (formed in 1968) and Queen (1971), and lately I’ve really taken …

Cake or pie?

Uh… okay. WordPress gave me a bunch of suggestions as to what my next post should be, and this was one of them. Yep. Obviously nothing I say could be as funny or insightful as this response to this age-old question. So I’ll keep it brief – for me, it’s pie. But ice cream is …

Harmony MIDI Pack now on /idgames

The Harmony MIDI Pack which I updated a while ago has now been approved on the /idgames archive, meaning that its release has basically been finalized. It took about three days after uploading for it to be approved, and to be honest I was wondering if it would be, since I went against a couple …

“In the works” #1

Occasionally I won’t release anything for a while. This happens – either my creativity stagnates or outside forces conspire to prevent me from uploading anything to this site or my YouTube channel. This post will serve as an update to any and all works that I am currently working on (or that I owe to …

Working on new artwork for “Creation”

This is a mock-up of my actual vision for “Creation”‘s album artwork. Not permanent by any means. Tell me, what do y’all think? 😛

Two reasons why I don’t like your song

I’m addicted to Symphony X. It has to be said. Most recently I bought their two latest albums, “Paradise Lost” (2007) and “Iconoclast” (2011), and have had them on almost perpetual repeat since. I’m up to about 40-50 plays on each song by now. So why do I find their music so more-ish? Very few …

ASD actually stands for “absolute social dropout”

Apparently, my nursery teacher once said to my parents something along the lines of “he’s a smart lad, but he’ll probably grow up to be a kind of absent-minded professor who needs someone to take care of him – you know, fold his shirts and stuff like that”. While it somehow baffles me that she …
