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.
