Here's a post about life and music and all of the things.
So I'm all set with college till August, first year was tight acedemically but mentally and life wise it kinda fuckin blew if I'm being honest. Things are a little better now but my mom is in shambles and I'm helping her through some tough times. The restaurant that I worked at before I went to college is going through some hard times so they cut my hours and so I have to find another job. I'm also looking for local recording opertunities since that's what I want to do the rest of my life. My cousin has an in on some work for the shows that he performs at so I'll be able to do some live sound work there which is exciting. It may not be a stable job but I'll enjoy it for the experience alone. As for music stuff, I've been getting back into the music writing grove. Not sure what I'm gonna do now after releasing Gawd Fonk. But I'm sure I'll get some ideas over my time off. Traveling usually gives me ideas so maybe I'll do some hiking throughout the summer. In terms of my music on social media and the sorts, I've decided to post on here, Soundcloud and YouTube. I don't really care about the money thing on YouTube anymore, and I believe the exposure is the best for me. I'm going to start using my YouTube account again. If you haven't already, you should subscribe! It's a good ol time. Here's a link:
Hope you all are having a great day, and to get a conversation going I'm gonna ask a question for those who music the musics out there.
If there was a song that you had to rewrite into a different genre, (I.E Techno-Jazz, Rock-Funk etc.) what song would it be and why?
Looks like this is an appropriate length, hope all is well!

Hello! I haven't been writing these! Mostly because I'm busy with end of semester stuff. Your typical college BS and what not. Anyways, I've been studying hard so I haven't really gotten to do much although for those of you who follow me on twitter my social media game has been on point as of recently and I'm pretty happy about it. I've been working on the one track for a bit as a part of my class. It's a lot different from what I have been doing but I like how it's going. It's for a music video I have to do for my final for my Music Tech class. There's a whole bunch of shiiittt I gotta do for it but I'm just making a cool chill video hightlighting parts of Albany with some chill beats in the background. Not sure how the video part is gonna go buttttt yeah.
How have you guys been doing? What's your musical life or life stuff going? How's it here on Newgrounds? (I apologize for not being active pls don't kill me)
That's about it! For my music recemmendation this week I'd say go listen to that new Kendrick Lamar album as well as the new Gorillaz stuff. It's good shit.
See you in 10000 years for the next blog post!

Happy April Fools Day Everybody!
I didn't think of a joke because I didn't have time to think of one.
Do not worry though because I did have time to release a new song!
It's called flirtatious, and boy does the name make no sense because it has nothing to do with the song... Found the joke! Anyway, I've been super busy and I finally got around with finishing this short edit of the song and now I'm on to completing the entire thing! Yeh. Giveaway winners will be posted tomorrow so that's fun! I'm also debating on making a new channel since the monetization on my current one is dead but I'll think about it more. I hope all of you are doing well! I really don't have much to write about this week, it was rather normal in terms of events which makes for a boring blog post so I'm sorry :((
Soooo yeah! Hope you all are well!

Hello! Sorry I kept you waitin!
I've been bussssssssssssyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy with all this school stuff and I've been really good mentally. I've been playing trumpet in the studio for various projects and it's been quite exciting! I want to incorporate trumpet in my stuff but I'm unsure how to without a complete genre change. That being said, I'm kinda getting tired of techno.. well making it at least. I'm gaining a very large interest in arranging and making stuff on sheet music *gasp*
I know, I know. It's crazy, but there are things I've been doing on there arranging side! For example, I'm in the middle of creating a Trumpet Solo arrangement of the Legend of Zelda theme with a few other songs added in from the series. Here's a lil look at what I have done! Should I post it here when it's done so those who play Bb instruments can play it? I can do some transposin if needed too to make some different versions for other instruments... Lemme know!
Anyways, how are you guys doing? I hope you all are doing very well! My album amethyst is on sale for $2 on bandcamp right now until sunday when I announce the winners of the giveaway contest which is exciting!! You can find that using the bandcamp link under my contact information! That's about it for this week.. sooo yeah!
Hope you all are doing well!

Sooo as you can see from the title.. my youtube is kinda... dead.
Well, sort of.
As of last week, I will no longer get ad revenue from my account due to people clicking the ads too many times. I disabled them for a bit to see if I could get them to stop and after 3 weeks of having them disabled I re-enabled them to see if the problem had stopped. I didn't.
Now I'm stuck with no income while at school so now I'm on the job hunt, which is why I havem't been posting much. I've been overwelmed with school and looking for jobs and I don't have time to do this. It really sucks and I'm sorry. Other than that, life's been alright, really not much to talk about, I've just kinda been working my butt off.
Soooo yeah! That's about it. Hope you all are doing well! Contest winners will be posted Sunday and about the youtube channel, I'm not sure what I will do yet. I am conflicted because I put so much work into it.
Hope you all are doing well!

Hello! Wow I got to ten of these!
I'm suuupper busy so I'm sorry for being dead and stuff!
I have a week off this week but I've been working my tail off gigging musicals with my Trumpet. It's some fun stuff!
I've been working on some projects, as well as my first Logic Pro song and some more FL Techno beets.
How are you all doing? I'm doing better, I've started to go on a anti sugar/sweetener diet and it's been... interesting. I've primarily been drinking unsweetened teas and water and stayed away from sodas and stuff like that despite my love for them.. It'll all be good! Any of you like tea? If so, what's your favorite? Mine would probably be... Well, it depends on the day. Today I'm drinking Green Tea, so that's my answer for today! In other news, my giveaway has ended and I will be announcing winners for that next week, so stay tuned!
I've been active more on the social medias, so if you're interested, you should definately follow me there! Here's some links:
In other news, I put Amethyst on vinyl just so I could have it in tangible form and it looks SLICK. Thank you Vinylify!
For my music showcase this week, I'm doing something a little different. A musician that I follow on youtube created his own series that analyzes music in video games. You should check it out it's REALLY REALLY good!
Check it out here:
Well, that's about it! Hope you all have a great week!

Hello! Sorry for being a day late!
I've been super busy with school stuff but my break is almost here so it's all good!
I've been doing some music stuff, like the collab I did with @ScottFree777 which you can find here:
I've also been cleaning up my computer, which is where I found this old loop from over a year ago:
Sold my Wii U so I could get a switch a launch, I'm pretty excited! Going to a midnight release party and I'm pretty stoked! I've been working on learning new DAWs, right now I'm trying to learn Logic in depth, next will be reason and then finally Protools. I get certified for Protools at my school so I'll be waiting to go deep into Protools and I'll start when I begin classes. Classes have been... good. Hectic but good. Being a music student is rather tough, but it'll be worth it in the end.
Anyway, how are you all doing? I'm doing quite well, after a rough few weeks I've gotten better and now I think I'm back into the stride of things. The weather is super nice so I'm feeling the good feelings about that, and I just finished doing a good ol jog before I started writing this! Before I end this post I wanna get in my weekly spotlight.
Here's a meme:
Good night everyone!

These are back again and there's been some changes! The most obvious one is that these are now on Wednesdays.
So how are you all? I'm... alright I guess. A lot of shit has happened, my girlfriend left me, school's getting hard af and my family is being a pain but I have done enough moping and the new song that I will be releasing next Friday is a collaboration between me and one of my friends from school. This doesn't seem too important but we got to use the school's recording studio ourselves and it's my first song not using FL Studio, so we'll see how good it goes. I wish he had a link to plug for him but he doesn't have social media so.... yeh. We spent the last 6 months working on this and I am VERY happy on how it came out. It's also my first dive into more hip-hoppy rap stuff. You know what they say, if you wanna do something, jump in head first. Stay tuned ;)
Anyways, I released some stuff this week and you can find them here:
For this week's showcase I have this song that is really great. Actually, @Larrynachos shared it on Soundcloud.
That's about it! See you all next week!
