After the livestream, I plan to work on
"The Blackberry Monologues".
Between the "Reimagined" series of livestreams
and the summer heat, this is taking longer
than I expected, so there's no guarantee
when it will be finished.
What I /do know is that after I get done with that,
I wanna begin work on the triple remix album
which I feel will be quite interesting to play live.
With Ustream getting rid of it's free users next month,
Twitch will be new My front runner streaming site
meaning all 3 sites I now use (stream.me included)
are known predominately for gaming and
not much for music, but I'm hoping
to maybe change that somehow.
Tuesday, June 12, 2018:
UStream has decided to discontinue their "free" plan which means no more embedded streams on the
"Shows" page of this website. That will most likely be replaced by just the calendar letting You know when
& where events will happen, but the events themselves can no longer be shown on this website after August
if simply because I can't afford it making July's stream "Law Abiding Citizen Reimagined" the last show I'll
ever do on UStream. It's like saying goodbye to an old friend considering I've been with them since about 2012
and then I'll have to find a new streaming site that restream.io supports like stream.me or something similar
because OBS doesn't have an embed feature like the old UStream once did.
This news hits Me right in the gut as mush as I'm sure it does You guys.

I'm halfway done with writing
the script for "The Blackberry Monologues"
which was slated for an early July release,
but might come out in August or September
depending on how it takes to finish.
I've got another livestream coming up
on the 16th called "Nite Trax and Thrill"
(a follow-up to April's "Nite Trax & Chill")
and speaking of livestreams, The idea of
"Livestreams Revisited" has been changed
to "Livestreams Reimagined"! and this time
They're done the way they *should've* been.
Friday, April 13, 2018:
The day has come. My new double
covers album "Nite Trax: vol. 1 & II"
is out now, and can listen to it here
As far as the livestream is concerned,
I decided to do away with the lights and
fog machine (save those for the music videos)
and think of this less like a rock concert
and more like a jam session.
Not pretend it's something more
than what it really is.
I've also decided to redo "Livestreams Revisited"
and included a few extra from the "Judgment Years" era.
Who knows, I might even streams My practice sessions on
the game "Synthesia" and Show you guys How I learn songs.
Meanwhile, I'm still working on
"The Blackberry Monologues"
on the side, but I'm not sure
when that will be finished.
Friday, March 16, 2018:
The 1st single "Mr. Self Destruct"
from My up coming covers e.p.
"Nite Trax Vol.II" is out Now
and You can listen to it here:
I've always compared to "Master of Puppets" for some reason.
Nite Trax Vol. 1 & II
is set for release April 13, 2018
That's right - Friday the 13th
My next live stream in support of that
also now has a name: "Nite Trax and Chill"
and now I move onto My upcoming documentary
"The Blackberry Monologues"
so, if You don't mind, I got a script to write.
Tuesday, February 6, 2018:
I'm sure by now, some of You may have
already figured out that My time off
has reached it's conclusion,
and with that being said...
Experiment II with the Marshall Mini
& Livestream was a success. I figured
out what levels I needed for the next
time I play live somewhere.
I'm ready to hit the studio again,
for "Nite Trax vol. 1 & II"
Vol. 1 is basically the same 4 songs
You've heard before, just done differently.
Vol. II on the other hand is buncha
songs You've only ever heard me do live
never recorded until now.
Think of it less as Me doing My own
versions of these songs and more...
"Look what else I can play"

You've probably been wondering what I've been
up to during My time off, before I go back
in the studio to lay down some vocals
for this new covers album.
I'm just going through the motions right now.
Kicking around ideas for future projects.
Most of that stuff's already on the itinerary.
I've been experimenting with the Marshall Mini
& Ustream and one thing I've learned recently was
to turn up the mic a bit but without
drowning out the music.
Friday, November 10, 2017:
After 2 Months, The 1st part of the Trilogy
project is complete. (The main backing tacks, that is)
Asa result, I'm taking time off from any 'main' projects
until maybe January, or February of 2018
and During that time off I'll be Uploading Outtakes
& Deleted scenes from Mutant Melvin 6
and experimenting with the
Marshall mini and Livestream, as promised.
Tuesday, October 10, 2017:
I'm 3/4 of the way done with stuff from "Wizard of Death"
and already 1/3 into the stuff I wanna do from
"Judgment Years". I'm still excited for "The Classic Edition"
despite the limited number of songs. This is because of that
playing style's one and only major drawback: You can really
only do so much with playing bass and rhythm at the same time.
While intriguing, it limits what songs can faithfully
be recreated in such a way. However it's still interesting
to hear the songs that can be done, played this way.
Now You're probably asking "What about 'Nite Trax: Vol. II'
or 'Blackberry Monologues'?" Those are still gonna happen
at some point. I already have a track listing for "Nite Trax II"
The only thing I can tell about that is that it feels like
a continuation of Vol.1 while also being it's own stand-alone E.P.
Tuesday, September 12, 2017:
I'm pretty much done with all the backing tracks
for songs from "Bash Contract" and getting ready to
move on to stuff from "Wizard of Death" and "Judgment Years",
but that's only the beginning, because I haven't even
gotten to the "hands-on" studio stuff yet (Vocals, guitars etc.)
I think it'll be pretty interesting to hear these songs done this way.
Can't wait to do them live, speaking of which I still plan on
experimenting with sound quality on Ustream and seeing what I can work with
at some point in time in the near future now the weather's cooled down
a little bit. As far as Mutant Melvin goes I'll snap up the outtakes
from "Texico City Mutations" at some point as well.
