What I've been up to (this whole time) 

Thursday, January 14, 2020: 

The live action re edit of "Smooth 4 - Life" 
is now available. 

I'm possibly working on an autobiography 
(that branches off into alternate realities) 

And remaking more songs into the "Classic Edition" style
(and maybe doing a little "vocal de aging")
to showcase what they would sound like had
I released music in My 20's rather than My 30's.
I'm kinda hoping to do My entire discography this way. 
I call it the "Alternate Discography" project.

As for livestreams, I might be looking for a new place
to host them as I feel Twitch might not be too kind
with Their DMCA policies.

"Wizard of Death: Story Mode" available Now 

Wednesday, October 14, 2020: 

Okay so "Wizard of Death: Story Mode" is finished and available now
in the "Comics" section as well as "Sultry Queen (Full Band Edit)"
and the unofficial remakes including the 30th anniversary cover of "Enter Sandman"
might wave to wait until Their respective (and pre - planned) release dates,

I have another project in mind (involving old demo tapes)
for the future but depending on what happens after the election,
I may not be able to get to that one right away (if at all).

Wizard of Death spinoff goes 2D 

Tuesday, September 15, 2020: 

Okay, so I finally broke down and decided to go 2D for
"Wizard of Death: Story Mode" with Mutant Melvin being more involved.
The new single "5 Card Stud (Full Band Edit)" comes out today along with
another live-action remake of the music video (using stock footage).
I'm still doing live shows on Twitch so long as
weather (or My day job) permits.

Back on the (Virtual) Stage 

Monday, June 15, 2020: 

"Finally…After a Year and a Half… The Ulshman… Has Come Back… to Livestreaming."
Yes - You just read that cheap impression of '90's Dwayne "the Rock" Johnson correctly. 

After December 2018's disastrous "Technological Violence: Redemption" livestream
(which was in response to another equally as bad one, mind You),
I've finally got a computer that's capable of livestreaming and not crashing.
The aptly titled "Bill Ulsh Livestream" starts TODAY between the hours of 3:00 P.M. and 7:00 P.M. 

Now, for those of You wondering "but, wait… what about 'Wizard of Death: Story Mode'?"
You needn't worry because I'm still working on that as a side project.

Also, I just got done last week with the live action remake to the music video
for My cover of Sheryl Crow's "All I Wanna Do".

May-Be, I should get back to BiZNeSS 

Tuesday, May 12, 2020: 

I filming My parts for a Live-Action remake of "Euphoria" sometime this week.
I also have "Sultry Queen (Classic Edition)" coming this month as well as
"Rainbow in the Dark (Full Band Edit)" in tribute of the 10th anniversary of Ronnie James Dio's passing.
I'm still  working on the Mutant Melvin V extension comic "Wizard of Death: Story Mode" on the side, too.

How I'm Spending My Quarantine 

Tuesday, April 14, 2020: 

I was gonna do a Live-Action remake of "Smooth 4-Life", until 
I found out I still had unedited footage from the original. 
So, NO FILMING NEEDED, there which makes it 
a Live-Action Re EDIT, instead. 

Also, I'm working on a "Mutant Melvin V" extension comic called 
"Wizard of Death: Story Mode" which forgoes traditional 2D 
 animation panels for C.G.I. (How many comics do that, right ?!?)

"The Bill Ulsh Trilogy" is Out Now!!! 

Tuesday, March 17, 2020: 

This album is now available on all platforms having just come out
on Leap Years Day (or somewhere around there).
The 2nd single  "5 Card Stud (Classic Edition)" 
also comes out today and I'm working on
the music videos for "Sultry Queen" sometime this week.
I'm also still redesigning the comics as well.

"The Bill Ulsh Trilogy" is FINISHED!!! 

Wednesday, February 12, 2020: 

I've just wrapped up post production on this album and now, 
It's ready to go by Leap Years Day. 

I'm working on the music videos for "5 Card Stud" & "Sultry Queen", currently
and I've even re-tweaked the comics to look a little more like, well, COMICS.
Not to mention, performance videos of each song from the album (both versions)
including the 3 "guitar songs" from "The Judgment Years" as an encore. 

Looks like I've got My work cut out for Me, here.

Time to Expand the Itinerary 

Tuesday, January 14, 2020: 

I'm back with the mixing and mastering of this album.
And after that, I'm looking to rework the 1st single and music
video "Wizard of Death (Classic Edition)" when I eventually get around to it.

I also have a couple of other ideas for sometime after the album's release date
which I think I can do in between the other music videos that I plan to remake.

Nobody's about that Star Wars anymore, but... 

Wednesday, December 18, 2019: 

I'm halfway through the mixing and mastering of this album.
I even went back and did the "Classic Edition" as well so,
be on the lookout for a rework of the 1st single and music
video "Wizard of Death (Classic Edition)" when I eventually
get around to it. I'll be taking time off for the holidays before
getting back to the other half of this album and then working
on said single sometime before the album's release date.

THAT'S A WRAP! (for part 2, as well) 

Tuesday, November 12, 2019: 

I have just finished production on the "Full Band Edit" and effectively, this double concept album now
which is set for a possible Leap Year Day 2020 release. 

In other related news, the 1st single and music video 
"Wizard of Death (Classic Edition)" has just come out today.
It basically a remake of the 2013 original with some updated graphics (but nothing too amazing).
Meanwhile I'm doing reshoots for the Full Band Edit version.

Back in the Studio …again 

Thursday, October 10, 2019: 

Due to a summer that went on way longer than it should have,
I'd taken time off and during that time, I reworked "Mutant Melvin"
a bit here and there adding new artwork and changing some
names of characters and adding a few new ones. 

I'm 3 quarters of the way done with the "Full Band Edit"
and getting ready to film the 1st set of music videos
"Wizard of Death" (both versions) soon.

Conditions are Ideal so, Back to Work 

Thursday, August 15, 2019: 

Now that weather conditions are kind of ideal, I can now get back to work
on this album and guess what?!? I'm already half way done.
That's right - "Trilogy (Classic Edition)" is finished as of last week and
I'm ready to move on to production for the "Full Band Edit" but before I do that,
I'm looking to film My cover video using the split screen technique. This time
it's another Metallica song - "Enter Sandman" Which I plan to get done before FBE is complete.
 

T2 said it best - "I Need a Vacation" 

Wednesday, July 17, 2019: 

Now that I'm half way done with post-production for the "Classic Edition",
I've decided to take a little break until the summer heatwave lets up
(with an ideal hi of no more than 78 degrees) but in the meantime, I'm gonna
upload some videos. The 1st of which was uploaded today for the 10th Anniversary
of My 1st ever upload using My current recording software which was a cover of
"For Whom the Bell Tolls" which I uploaded to Myspace (and yes - I was still using Myspace back in 2009. Don't judge Me.)
I also figured before I start filming My parts for the music videos, I might as well get good at this split screen technique
by practicing on cover song first so that way, I know what the hell I'm doing when I get to any originals.
 

THAT'S A WRAP! (for part 1, at least) 

Tuesday, June 18, 2019: 

I'm finally done with the vocal tracks and ready to
move onto post-production for the "Classic Edition" 
(the vocal tracks, mainly) which I can then
copy over to the "Full Band Edit". 

All I have to do after that is record the Synth and Bass tracks
(Actual Guitar using an effects pedal). 

I'm  also ready to move onto the next phase of pre production
for the music video to "Wizard of Death (Full Band Edit)" 

Cant believe I'm almost done, except for filming the music videos.

"Classic Edition" almost finished 

Wednesday, May 15, 2019: 

I'm finally done with the instrument tracks for the "Classic Edition" and now working on the vocal tracks, 
parts of which I can then copy over to the "Full Band Edit" cutting down the workload significantly. 

I've  also just begun pre production for the music video to "Wizard of Death (Full Band Edit)"
which will be "different" from the "Classic Edition".  
In other news, the "Shows" page has now been changed to "Release Dates" to know
when a certain album, music video or anything else related is coming out.

Production for "Trilogy" Continues 

Wednesday, April 17, 2019:

I'm over half way done with the instrument tracks for this album and also, 
I'm done with the pre production for these music video remakes I mentioned in a previous blog.
3 of which are gonna be singles for My upcoming concept album "Trilogy" using various VFX,
while the other 3 are just straight up remakes for the hell of it and also because, (as mentioned in "The Blackberry Monologues")
I've always wanted them to be live-action anyway. (stock-footage counts as "live-action", right?)

Plus, I'm back to uploading old livestreams from last year and their respective sound checks (in separate playlists) on YouTube.

Recording for "Trilogy" begins soon 

Tuesday, March 12, 2019: 

I'm still uploading parts of My documentary "The Blackberry Monologues" on Vimeo due to it's weekly upload limit.
In other news I'm finally getting around to recording the concept album "Trilogy"
after finishing up pre-production for some music videos in support of said album.
Now these aren't gonna be some George Lucas "Special Edition" remix BS
(where I take the originals and add a bunch of new stuff), They're full on REMAKES of old music videos beginning with
"Wizard of Death" and then live action versions of  "5 Card Stud" through "Smooth 4-Life" (including My cover of "All I Wanna Do")

Blackberry Monologues is available now! 

Wednesday, February 13, 2019:  

I'd just released My documentary "The Blackberry Monologues",
which is available now on YouTube as well as Vimeo.
In other news I might finally get around to recording that concept album
I've been talking about for awhile now and with it, some performance videos
in support of said album Now that I no longer stream due to
My computer not being able to handle it.
(and maybe even some remakes of old music videos)
Speaking of which, I'm seriously considering doing
a follow-up documentary about My attempts at doing so.

I May Be a "Streamer No More" but... 

Tuesday, January 15, 2019: 

I plan on doing performance videos in place of that.
(Similar to when I 1st started out on YouTube)
The 3rd and final trailer for "The Blackberry Monologues" drops Today.
In other news, I've ditched the "All Synth Remix" part of The concept album
and split "The Full Band Edit" and "Classic Edition" in 2 again.
I'm currently in the process of writing bass tabs for F.B.E. at the moment.
I know this came a little late but, I had some super important IRL stuff to
deal with during My time off away from the music and switching back to
this was no easy task, either but, I'm back doing what I know.

UStream No Longer Exists 

 

Friday, August 10, 2018:

You might've noticed the "Shows" page 
on this site looking a little different. Well, 
There's a reason for that. IBM Cloud Video 
(formerly Ustream) has discontinued free 
accounts, so basically, if I wanted to use it 
(after August 1st, anyway), I'd have to pay. 
And that shit ain't cheap. So, as expected, 
They basically deleted My account. And 
with that, no more embedded video or chat 
like You used to see on the "Shows" page 
where You could go and watch My shows 
and chat for free if You liked. 
(Not that too many people were doing that, anyway)

This Makes My upcoming show 
"The Happening Reimagined" the 
1st to be featured on stream.me 
as well as Mixer and Twitch. 
3 sites predominately known for 
gaming, despite the latter having 
quite the abundant music community 
that seems almost lacking in the other 2.

I'm finished with the script for My documentary 
"The Blackberry Monologues" and it's currently 
in production. I've yet to begin filming, or recording 
any voice over work. As of right now, I'm only 
working on subtitles for each part that requires it. 
No release date is guaranteed yet, for all know it 
could come out summer of next year. There's also 
the matter of "The Remix Trilogy" to take into 
account, as well.

In spite of all that, I'm happy to say that today 
marks the 5th anniversary of My 1st ever 
music video "Wizard of Death". Looking back 
on it now, I realize that while "Mutant Melvin" 
says that it's a 90's fighting game, the video 
itself suggest that it might be some kind of 
robot slasher film with the only character to 
possibly give "Big Blue" a run for His money 
being Froggit during the song's climax/outro.

Is this the end of "The Classic Era"? - No, not yet. 

Thursday, March 23, 2017

Hey, what Up? I know it's late, but Here's what's been going on. 
You might've seen some dates on the calendar, or perhaps 
the new trailer that's been out, lately. Yes that's right. 
I've got a couple of shows coming up in April and May. 
The 1st one being an album release show. 
Yes -an ACTUAL ALBUM RELEASE SHOW (on the date of release, no less) 
Something I've always wanted to do, but could never really 
get around to doing for some reason. 
My best-of album "Bill Ulsh Yearbook" is getting released 
alongside the 1st 3 albums  (through DistroKid, hopefully) 
on April 18th, which will take place before the 1st livestream.

Also I have to give props to ysup12, 3dregenerator and the others over at 
tf3dm.com for making the 3D models You've seen in My music videos 
over the years that aren't "Wizard of Death" (which I made ENTIRELY myself) 
You guys are awesome. 
-Bill Ulsh, 2017

Welcome to [NIN] Name This Playlist 

In other news I've got a new playlist on Youtube that  I think You guys should check out. 
I'm still working on the name 
right now the working title is [NIN] Neo Industrial Network 
(I know - not very creative),  and that's where I need YOUR help. 
Think You can come up with something better? 
Name This Playlist

Update: and speaking of playlists
I'm sure You're all wondering about
"Welcome to Earth: Making the Judgment Years"
Well, for the sake of preserving quality,
It's been relegated to a playlist
because as a whole, the audio
was off during the second half.
and the next question - "when will it be released?"
probably around the same time as "Nite Trax"
which is now a sound cloud exclusive playlist

 

Everyone's all about that Star Wars, Meanwhile... 

Thursday, December 10, 2015:
Hey guys, what's up? As you may already know the new single, "Smooth 4-Life" is out.
What you may NOT know is that I'm over 1/2 through working on my "making of" documentary for
"The Judgment Years". Also, on a personal front, I've been dealing with some financial hardships lately.
Which means 2016 is as much of a mystery to Me as it is for the rest of You. what i do know is
I would like to finish up Mutant Melvin's 5 & 6, as well the subsequent series of live streams in
support of My most recent release,(The Judgment Years) if that is at all possible.

next single "Smooth 4-Life" due out December 6, 2015 

Thursday, November 12, 2015:
As some of You may have already figured out,
I'm kinda taking a break from the
"Making - of' documentary to go work on this video.
Some exciting discoveries have developed in recent weeks
as I've figured out a way in which to fuse CGI with Live-Action
in what is quite possibly the cheapest way imaginable.
Although, the arduous task of going in
frame by frame comes along, but hopefully
this video will meet the Dec 6th deadline when all is said and done.
