it's depressing me
I haven't made anything new in 2 years! my 2012 submission was actually a song I made in 2011.

2013 might be my first year without a submission :(

Don't come down this path

It's looking more and more like the path I'm going to be taking. Expenses have driven me into a bit of a financial hole. I'm still making music on my keyboard but without a computer that can handle the work I want to make I'm kind of stuck. Also, location location location. I'm on an island. Just finding people out here that are into anything interesting is impossible. I've been taking long ass drives into NYC as of late just to feel like I'm doing something interesting.

Hmmmm, adult life.

Say @Mich ...I visited your blog earlier, and read a post how you hacked a boombox...
Where'd you learn to do all that?

I'm fascinated...
then again, I am fascinated in music technology, boxing, computer building, programming and some other stuff...
still, I have absolutely no (to very little/basic) knowledge what-so-ever on all of these

As a kid I was interested in electricity/electronics and opening shit up. I followed that up by going into electronics in high school/college. I actually finished a sort of Bachelor degree in Electronics in 2011, but ended up getting a job in web development, which has been my career since. Electronics remains a hobby.

As for web development/coding, that's something I've taught myself throughout my teens, strengthening that skill significantly as I developed theaudioportal.com (now abandoned) from 2009-2011. Since I was going to evening school and still living with my mother, I had all day to work on that and learn. (Yes, I was a "lazy" jobless bum those two years, excepting a one week interim job as a cabler.) I digress.That site has contributed to getting me my 2 webdev jobs, first at a marketing agency and later at Digitally Imported.

If you're interested in something, find out what you can learn about it an apply it in little and bigger projects. It can get you pretty far.

wait... I scammed you out of money somehow? I'm guessing one of the discs was Shock Art. That's four years old by now and most of that music was removed from NGAP... I might re-upload them here next year if I'm still out of a decent computer to compose with. Place holders...

What was the other cd? Was it Syncopation Catharsis or a cheap blank prototype? Regardless, all of the afore mentioned music embarrasses me now. Anything older than two months becomes embarrassing to listen to.

Anyone else get that? I keep a lot of my work up as a reminder of where I've been and what I've done but I never listen to it because I'm afraid to know how much I sucked.

Bringing this up again.

Recently got myself a second monitor on my laptop setup.

I actually thought that I'd need a second graphic card to be able to do dual monitor, but I just plugged it to the monitor input and it setup itself.

I always wanted a multi-screen interface, but I never thought it'd be THIS useful. I'd say if you're the kind of guy that tends to multitask a lot, definitely go for it.

KRK Rokit 8's, they're pretty good, especially for the pricing, but they lack a bit of high-frequency response. I'd say if you're not doing too much orchestral stuff, they're definitely a pair to consider.

Well, you can be fooled and get some knock-offs, as you can see here.

He might idk but I definitely do. The adams are an ok choice. They are great for long nights mixing due to those ribbon tweeters, but the adams have a reputation much like KRK. They are used a LOT by people doing EDM. My associates and I have kind narrowed down what we think are the best options for entry level monitors. We personally all like the Yamaha HS8, Event 20/20BAS, and Dynaudio BM5A mk2. They seem to be the most truthful bunch for under a grand per speaker. The Adams definitely compete with those sets, so dont take it as an end-all listing, but also dont skip over them as they are all worth looking into.

Awesome Breed, thanks a lot for your helpful advice :D I will definitely check those monitors!

school has never been important to me. i've failed multiple times, and no im dropping out of college.

it sucks cause both of my sisters excel in school, and it looks bad on me to my parents.

and people think i'm stupid because i can't get good grades

I hate people who think like that. good grades shouldn't reflect on your intelligence. all you got to do in school is be an obedient bastard who won't think for themselves.

am i bad person

Probably going to sit here and make some music or something, not much money to go out drinking until the end of next week (that's what I get for spending shit loads of money on ADAM's monthly charged and plug-ins this month in the sales).

Oh and HAPPY BIRTHDAY
Have fun producing :3 lol

I wish, that'd mean I'd be unemployed. I'd have a hell of a lot less stress if I was.

ひきこもり = Hikikomori = Shut in (Basically).

I sure wouldn't mind being a NEET for a while again though... Almost may as well, my job pays me about enough to rent a luxury cardboard box on a street corner. Only reason I haven't quit is because what little pay I do get goes to my car payments.

ooooh thats cool, I'd love to see if this has a positive outcome - hopefully it does and other countries will follow

I've always thought cannabis should be legal - and tobacco illegal, purely for health reasons (ironically I don't really enjoy marijuana and am addicted to smoking hah)
