And I would say that particular game is the worst of the Sonic franchise. Sorry.

lol I was being facetious. ur right, it's bad.

My favorite would probably have to be the 2D sidescrolling ones, because I have lots of memories with those. And Sonic Adventure Battle 2, obvi

When I saw the word "synth" I instantly got excited. I listened to the track and really liked it, so I then listened to some more of your stuff. I really like your music! It's unfortunate that they're so short, however. But hey, quality over quantity.

yeah, I'm trying to make longer things! My attention span is pretty nonexistent though haha

But we also have games like Shadow the Hedgehog, with guns where he is edgy and swears when he falls off of a platform and skates. So it's impossible to say whether the franchise as a whole is bad

One of the (new) best shows currently on Netflix. It's a binge-worthy ride, and it's detail rich. The characters are complex and memorable. The dialogue occasionally falls flat, but overall, I'm excited about watching this again.

It gives me some Eternal Sunshine vibes.

Today, I chopped up some samples in Ableton. I pitched up a Kanye sample and then transitioned into a gritty beat. I like it, and I hope you do too.

In sum, the job hunt is hard. But sometimes I watch these seemingly silly videos and they remind me that life is actually alright.

General / Affirmations
« on: February 15, 2019, 08:01 pm »
Some context: I've experienced seasonal depression a bit this year, but compared to past years it's not as bad. It does still take a toll on my energy levels which correlates with the amount of art I create, the amount of work I complete, etc.

With that being said, I have been a bit bummed lately regarding the job search. More specifically, the defining lack of response (aside from a couple of declined letters and automated emails). I know I'll find the right job. I've been incredibly proactive, but I also have to be patient (and I'm not a patient person).

I started listening to some of those affirmation videos on YouTube in the morning when I get ready. If you haven't listened to them before, affirmations typically are a repetitious series of positive "I am" statements. Some of them are silly ("I am indestructible") and some of the success-oriented ones fall victim to capitalism ("there is no limit to the amount of money I can make").

But some of these are actually encouraging - "the past is the past. I don't dwell on my mistakes, but I don't forget them because mistakes are lessons and I keep these lessons in my heart and carry them on my journey to being a better person."

"I am loved and deserve love; I am the perfect partner for my perfect partner. I respect those around me and react with love."

Definitely The Antlers -Putting the Dog to Sleep

Shoot, I'll give this a gander. The Antlers "Hospice" was my go-to sad music before Sufjan Stevens dropped "Carrie & Lowell"

This is a slow fragment of an ambient track. I think it's the most cohesive track I've made, trying to fix some compression issues on Ableton.

I made a new track today - it's not very good, more of an abstract hodge-podge of lots of different sounds.

But it's given me some practice with a set of vocal chops, using different programs for the same recording, and mixing and mastering in Ableton.

I've been gone for a minute, so I might as well reintroduce myself.

How is everyone today?

Making small, electronic tracks is a nice distraction from the job hunt.

Like at the beginning, you don't know how the people became zombies.
At the end, splode, you still don't know.

At the beginning, there is a long montage of "climate change" reports, which made me laugh. Kind of sneaking those messages into a movie, it reminded me of Avatar .

I didn't even know it was a zombie movie till a commercial recently (which is awesome advertising for me, because it was mysterious).  I wanted to see it and probably still because that one scene with all the people climbing the bodies like maniacs on the wall is bone chilling.

Even though I didn't care it for it...
That part was probably one of the most memorable moments I've ever seen in a movie like this.

The average novel is 90,000 words long.
You had better get writing.

It doesn't need to be that long, but if you can do that, more power to you.

Gonna say that you didn't find the movie that great then.

After it was clear that the plot was as flat as a pre-pubescent girl, I was trying to snooze.

But I couldn't even fit a good nap in because of how loud the entire movie is.

I've been wanting to see it lol, idk now haha. If you're ignoring the plot and just want to see drama/splode going down, is it worth a watch?

The music is good. If you're just going for a popcorn flick that can be fun with your friends, then it could be worth a single watch (not multiple).

This is the perfect zombie movie, because half of the dialogue is screaming.

Also, for the "realism" factor, the cameraman has a severe case of Parkinson's.
It makes it look like a zombie apocalypse could really happen! Like a documentary!
I've never seen that done before in a movie!

Cloverfield, Saving Private Ryan, Man of Steel, Quarantine, Paranormal Activity, Paranormal Activity 2, Paranormal Activity 3...
