Why do I need a new blog?

 

Everything works out fine in the end.

If something isn’t right, that’s because you are not yet at the end.

You should be proud that you have time to make things right and excited to be living and growing stronger in the present.

Scary.

Listen Dear People

'Improvised' song (singing and chords) on 90s sampler keyboard that I recorded with my phone. I think the reverb I gave it on my phone had a nice effect.

GarageBand iPad test 2. The thing is improvised, so please don’t mind the gibberish and harshly-sung lyrics + it’s kind of funny that you can kind of hear talking in the background, maybe my parents were in the room, I don’t remember.

Book of cats.

I asked a friend to make a ‘pixel-art’ animation of a tree dancing. I was happy with what it was, but I redid the green branches and made the stump more detailed.
I am to use this in a music video for a song I hope to record in the next few weeks about dying trees… (that’s if I’m not too lazy to record it). The video I think will be a montage of tree footage (plus time-lapses) I will record and the video will be bordered by the dancing trees.

Old Fashioned Blog Post

I started a Google Blogger blog back in 2012 and only used it for one year. I was then motivated to use Tumblr for once as a suggestion from a friend. At first I really thought this site was a niche little service for scary fundamentalist groups and Instagram photographers, but it turned out there’s much more interesting content through this site than the stereotypical Tumblr user displays it to be. Anyway I came inspired to quickly start typing this up because I was thinking about my old blog and the first blog styled post I made on that terrible site. That first post was about a garage sale, and that’s what my family is doing today. So, it seems appropriate that I write up my reflection of today, just as I did a few years ago.

iPad GarageBand Fun - Sand Gone Green

My dad got the iPad mini (with Retina), which now, Apple products come with all of their apps for free, such as GarageBand.

So, after it was all set up, I had taken over and hopped into GarageBand.

This song, was completely improvisational and shouldn’t be taken in any way ‘serious’ because nothing really fits together, so I kind of mumbled the made up lyrics, and added a weird pitch echoey filter thing. I was surprised at the way the guitar works and the piano had a really nice interface, the drums had not much control though. But at least it turned into something that doesn’t at least hurt your ears. Overall the GarageBand on iPad could be really useful for a scratch pad.

Mixing on it was terrible though and I couldn’t work out how to turn off the metronome for the initial voice recording, so it was stuck with that in the recording (which is a little too loud…)

2013 - Things of Thing, Stuff of Stuff?

A bunch of exported music files of things I made way back last year. I  gathered them from a folder titled “bad things go somewhere here” and stitched them all together and played around with some of them with audacity to make them ‘better?’ (or purposely worse) because they ‘mostly’ weren’t worth much and two of them already exist online, so I played around with them more.

Two weird things I made early last year. I don’t know what caused these, but I might as well upload them.
