EP review: Bad Salad – Puzzled

Greetings, prog metal fans of all sorts! Today I have very special treat for you, a review of the latest musical venture by the exceedingly talented folks of Bad Salad, whom you may remember I covered a little while ago in a review of their fantastic debut album “Uncivilized“.

“The Plutonia Experiment” MIDI Pack released!

I’m pleased to announce the completion and release of the Plutonia MIDI Pack, which is a unique project I started earlier this year. It consists of 35 new MIDI tracks, all written by various members of the Doomworld community, in a bid to write a unique soundtrack for the Doom 2 add-on “The Plutonia Experiment” …

StickKnights: Part II!

Part two of the planned StickKnights trilogy is now available for viewing on YouTube. More animation from my brother, plus further great voice-acting from him (and myself). And of course, music by me, too. Also ACTION SCENES. And they’re awesome. 😀 We hope you enjoy!

The Adventures of Square DEMO RELEASED

Hey everyone, Jimmy here. I’m not dead. As you may or may not be aware, for at least two years now, I’ve been working on and off on a silly little game project called The Adventures of Square, a first person shooter/platformer using an advanced version of the engine from Doom. You may have already …

Word of the day: half a dozen

half a dozen Numeral Pronunciation: /hɑːf ə dʌzən/ Half of twelve (12), i.e. six (6). Let’s talk about this phrase for a moment. It is wrong. Just… wrong. Okay? It is wrong on the following counts: First off, it is three excess syllables where saying simply “six” will do the job just fine. I don’t know …

This post is the epic sequel to my first post about my hair since landing in Australia. My hair is long. I think that’s a safe assumption to make. The intensity of my twiddling habit has actually declined, although every now and then I’ll run a finger or two through my majestic locks and find …

StickKnights: Part I

This is a rather momentous occasion, at least for the Paddock brothers. (aka. the minds behind Rainbow Season and a host of other projects which are kind-of-going-on right now.) You may or may not know that my brother’s an animator. He’s still learning Flash but for someone who’s picked it up only recently, I think …

Rainbow Season in the studio!

My brother and I have been focusing super-hard on Rainbow Season lately. The last two months have been spent rehearsing, refining, and in some places rewriting the four songs we have planned for our debut EP. Here’s what has happened in that time: All the songs have undergone some fairly drastic changes in terms of …

YouTube update 15/04/13

I do apologize for how slow I’ve been in keeping this blog up to date. One of the reasons for my not uploading new tracks to YouTube is Windows 7’s Movie Maker being the most awkward piece of crap in the universe to use. “Yeah, let’s get rid of the timeline, take ALL the drag-and-drop …

MIDIs page update 15/04/13

Twenty-one MIDIs are now newly listed on my MIDI page. These are all fairly new, and actually make a pretty good batch, in my opinion.
