Remnet Side A Overhaul

So, after listening to my first attempt at Remnet over and over and over and over.. well you get the point. I still like it but I can’t progress in it. I’ll keep it work on it slowly but no idea when I’ll release it. But for now, I’ll be busy working on this overhaul.

Here is what I have so far.. though it will probably be only one deck this time. Since its what I’m comfortable with.. dual mode is a bit too much for my head to wrap around currently.

As time goes on… I’ll be working on it more. But for now, small patches from here and there will work for the time being. That is all for now so until next time.

Short Update

I haven’t posted in quite a while. But I thought that I would at least update this blog on some of my progress on some things.

I finished “Sidaki” as well as a few more songs. They are on my SoundCloud account for you to listen to and hate or enjoy if you actually like it. I’ll add link in a bit.

I did have cellphone service with “Cricket Wireless” until recently. Now I have switched to Virgin Mobile. And I’m enjoying the Optimus V android phone I got from them. I didn’t think I would like it but I actually do.

Also, EM-Zen will be released as a EP. Since after all this time. I have only really done six tracks and have a ton of scraps. I will be touching up my Korg songs and eventually make some cover art for this release. I will do my Electroplankton EP or album later. Since I will need to acquire a decent sound editing program.

And this it for now. I apologize once again…  I really need to make this a habit.

Project Sidaki

Well, time for another blog post after such a long time… once again. Anyway, my trip to San Diego was too short, and I plan to go back… at some point. Also, flying is boring. I had to play Dragon Quest IX just to not fall asleep too fast.

So, to get to the point of this post. I have a new project underway. It will most likely be a part of EM-Zen… but I’m not sure. Its a song titled “Sidaki”.

I have been studying techniques for composing on Korg DS-10, and I have come up with something that I’m proud of right now. I think I’m almost done with it. I’m probably going to get some opinions on it first before I finalize it. But its coming out pretty well. I’m finding that doing this one is a lot easier then my other stuff. I’ll release it as soon as I can.

One more thing. I’m single again… fate is never kind to me. Yet I move on… and hope that I find the one for me someday… -sigh-.. Anyway, I’m going to go back to Watching the old version of “The Outer Limits”… its not bad. So, until next time….

Quick update

Its been a long time again but I just get busy like everyone else does. EM-Zen is slowly still on the way. And I have a small track that I’ll probably tack onto it done. I did it on the bus while riding to the mall. And as soon as I get ANOTHER male to male 3.5mm audio cable…. since I lost the one I had as of recent I’ll get that one out.

And in other news this friday (the 24th of September of 2010). I’m going on a plane for the first time to go visit my cousin in San Diego. I’m so scared… and I don’t know what to expect but I shall do my best to not get lost in the airport…

Also, I know that I keep promising stuff like a more normal blog update and getting EM-Zen done but I’m lazy and things change… and I lose audio cables… but I shall get it done when I get it done. And that is all I’m going to say about that.

And so this is all for now so until next time…

I went on a game buying binge…

Well, this week I spent way too much money on games… I hope I never go on a gaming binge like that ever again… here is what I bought:

  • No More Heroes (First one) – $18
  • KORG DS-10 Plus – $34
  • Kirby’s Dreamland (For the Gameboy) – $8
  • Final Fantasy Legend 3 (For the Gameboy) – $6

So my grand total was $66 in games… fantastic.

But I’m happy with my purchases because I have been waiting to at least get No More Heroes and KORG DS-10 Plus for a while. I just got lucky and wanted to show some love to my Gameboy Pocket since I recently dug it out of a box in my room.

I have been really wanting to build up my game system related music tools recently and KORG DS-10 inspired me to do it. So I will eventually get LSDJ and some back light mod for my Gameboy Pocket (eventually and if its possible) so that I can make it more usable for this day and age.

I will get my EM-Zen Project off the ground this summer since I have nothing but work and time to do so. So watch out for it. I have been saying I will get it done and this time I will do it. I mean it.. really…

Anyway, I’m done for now and I really need to stop spreading myself so thin when it comes to projects…

Long time, no post… again

To keep things short. I haven’t been in the mood to post…

But here is a small list of what I have been doing within the last couple of months.

  • I got a black Nintendo Wii
  • I made an 8bc (8Bit Collective) Account and I will post stuff there that I finish
  • I actually finished something today (the 12th) and its on that 8bc account
  • I also uploaded Arpy the Walrus there too.
  • I have been playing Monster Hunter Tri on and off and I have come to the conclusion that I really don’t like capture missions.
  • The song I finished can be listened to via this link
  • I went to Animazement again this year and had tons of fun…and came home in the end with 19 cents in my checking account.
  • I have been hanging out with my friends and found a place that sells “Maine Root” root beer. Best stuff in the world I swear.

And thats all I can remember for now. I’ll try to update this a bit more but I get busy and work is aggravating to no end recently… anyway to anyone who still reads this once in a while.

I haven’t messed with Terragen in a while and yesterday I decided to strain my laptops processor again and push out something nice.

I plan a little later this month to try something a little more complex. This picture was just so I could get back into the flow of rendering stuff with Terragen. I’m going to try next time to not make the sun reflection not as harsh. At least thats what it feels like to me. Enjoy and until next time.

Tiny Update

Not too much to say this time… except…

  • School has started and paying for stuff out of pocket sucks
  • I have reached rank 3 Critical Hit in Mabinogi. (Training it takes forver…)
  • Paying $11 for Final Fantasy 3 is ridiculous even when its used.
  • My blog has hit a little over 500 hits… fantastic.
  • And Kaby is awesome~

Thats it. Later all and…

P.S: Doing late night blog posts is not fun. I forget what I’m writing about too easily.
