END TEASER ;D
Almost literally 😛
I’m hoping that soon I’ll have some more free time to flesh out everything I have going on. As of right now one project is completed and ready for publishing! In The Shadows Volume 4 is about to come out soon. Nyarko will be providing art just like he did to revamp my other 3 Volumes. It’s going to be awesome.
Now another thing that’s brewing. Remember that Persona/Shin Megami Tensei story I was working on. I want to turn that in to graphic novel and I think Nyarko will help me with that. I’m going to be working on the story and coming up with base (crappy) sketches. And then Nyarko will be making the awesome complete panels! I’m stoked and I hope this can work!
My job is going awesomely and I’m liking it a lot so far. I will update soon!
The new album art is finally done! It looks amazing! Nyarko did an incredible job! Check them out below I have widgets for all three Volumes:
Some great news. The job is going very well, so far the training is good and the team leaders are great! I feel that this job will be refreshing, a learning experience, and of course good money to help me survive! Which also means my projects get to move further. Speaking of projects I’m very excited about the new album art coming to In The Shadows. Nyarko, a user from Deviant Art has agreed to make some album art from me and I am completely excited. Check out his work and give him some love:
He has amazing Shin Megami Tensei fan art and I can’t wait to see his album designs. That’s the biggest news. I’ve almost got In The Shadows Volume 4 completed and a lot of songs for it already. If you look in the post below I have a set list already up on Soundcloud with most of the tracks uploaded on it. A big favorite of mine is a remix that I did of Lover Arcana. When I originally made that song I wish it was longer and done a bit differently. Now I have done it! And since it’s the Lover Arcana that inspired it I renamed it Yukari’s Theme.
E3 is coming up soon so expect to see awesome posts from me about my favorite things. To follow E3 in FULL I recommend going to Kotaku. They are going to cover the entire thing as well as having streaming coverage. ❤ Kotaku!
Because I prefer the blog view 😉
Also the Crimzen General Project is still on going and will follow a set theme. With a story hopefully. I love the Coheed and Cambria concept of having an underlying story. Since I have no vocals I’m going to have an accompanying PDF file that tells a bit of a story to go with the music and I hope that it adds to the experience and you guys/gals enjoy! More tracks for that is coming soon as well! I’m a busy bee but don’t worry I’m still here even with no internet access, I wifi when I get the chance 😀
I just hit over 1,000 page views, awesome! In other news, I forgot my laptop cord today so I have very limited amount of time on my computer. Does anyone know if I buy another battery for my laptop complete with power cord, will that give me better battery? Because it’s on that leg where it doesn’t want to hold a charge for more than 30 min.
Also, I have some more tracks uploaded and they’re for In The Shadows Volume 4! You should check the setlist and listen to the new ones:
Let me know what you think! The new tracks are: Battle Tactics, Retribution of the Lost, and Yukari’s Theme (Lover Arcana Remix)!
Posting and updating is even harder now because I have a new job and that’s taking up most of my time and I have no internet and with recent findings… I won’t be getting internet until I get my own place which won’t be for a year probably. Things are good stressful and bullshit stressful right now. How to deal with anxiety? I don’t know right now. It’s really hard. Some things stress me out more at home than they do anywhere else so going to work is almost a godsend in itself. The job I’m doing really isn’t that hard. But it’s a learning experience and it’s a great one. One I hope that by moving up I won’t have to do much school. Which that means less loans to pay back. I like that. The less debt the better.
I’m really just saving towards my own place for me and my girlfriend because things are just way to stressful where we’re at. Having to live with other people besides the one you want to be with causes so much extra unnecessary stress that you don’t need that wrecks your body. Honestly my health is being affected by it.
People talking behind your back. Making you feel like shit. Things like this happen in my situation and you have to suck it up and deal with it or you’re on the street. Taking beatings left and right. But I digress, it could be worse. Such is life. But I’m going to be getting out hopefully very soon with the woman I love and around people I want to be around.
I have in the works, a great thing coming soon! I have someone that might be able to do some amazing album artwork for me for my Shin Megami Tensei inspired albums: In The Shadows. He has extraordinary art and he looks like he should be working for ATLUS, that’s how good he is. Here’s his deviant art to check him out:
So this is semi-confirmed. We’re still writing back and forth on the details, but I for one am excited. I want to see this grow beyond my music. Into amazing fan created material and universe that could get recognized by ATLUS and the world! More people who play games should know about Shin Megami Tensei and how awesome it is. Especially people who are burnt out of Square Enix.
Speaking of In The Shadows, I have added something to Volume 4 setlist on Soundcloud. Take a listen for me and let me know how I’m doing! 😀
I have finally decided to continue In The Shadows. What started out as a Reincarnation effort, I’ve decided to not do that. But make Volume 4. I tried to remix/extend some of the original songs but they didn’t turn out good and I ended up still liking the original better. So that idea is now
With that said I have made some really awesome tracks for ITSV4 and let me say that they may not be super long, but they will definitely put a smile on your face! Some of the most feel good and some of the most ambient stuff I’ve accomplished so far.
There’s also another project that I have on the side called CLU3. It’s mainly for getting that frustration out of not knowing what to make. Once I made a couple of random chaotic songs it actually helped me concentrate on making Persona style songs. You can check out my chaotic side here:
Wondering what happened to Vulture? Well I took his emblem and used it for Sleeping Awake and then I evolved Vulture into CLU3 😉
