Looking forward to 2012!

I am too pumped for what 2012 has to offer. There are quite a few epic games coming out for the 3DS that I've been waiting for... (Animal Crossing, Super Smash Bros, Paper Mario, etc...).

:O didn't know super smash bros was going on 3DS! I need to get one now :D

My last wish for next year is to maybe find my dream girl.... who knows?

Good luck with that one! (not trying to sound sarcastic :O) I want a girl toooooooooo lol


I suck at grammer ^ can't you tell?
Yoooooouuuutuuubeeeee

Symphony No. 1

After about 2 years of writing and testing out various themes for it, I have finally found one I love for my Symphony (specifically, the second movement).

- Attempt #1 (December 2009 to March 2010) - wrote first movement (sonata form), second movement (andante for string quartet), and third movement (scherzo)

- Attempt #2 (September to December, 2010) - wrote two first movements (sonata form) and I like some themes from both, but overall didn't feel they were good enough

- Attempt #3 (August to December 2011) - wrote and developed a few themes, which may or may not be used in this symphony, but most of this time was spent listening to symphonies and teaching myself more advanced theory (using the scores of music by Brahms, Mendelssohn, and Beethoven)

I'm hoping to get this thing completed in spring: I want to see if my college might be interested in performing it... I think they might be. (I mean, how many other college kids write symphonies? lol)

So how far do you think you've progressed this year? In terms of musicianship mostly.

I learn so much every single month that I'm always amazed at how bad my last song was, so when I compare my old shit to my new shit its always pretty mind boggling. I hope my learning curve never dies down!

Yeah bro, you're doing well.

I've improved in terms of mixing and not sounding cheesy. lol

So, I was just lurking the video game forum, and a large animated angry faic popped up out of nowhere and screamed, "GAAAAAAHHHHHH!!!!! What are you lookin' at?!?!"

... And my speakers were turned way the hell up because I was doing some recording earlier... I swear, I nearly shat myself..

WTF Newgrounds?!

I never knew such a thing existed... and I obviously stumbled upon it by accident... and I can't seem to find it again.

First time I found that I had just finished listening to an Audio Portal track which was way too soft (I can't seem to find said song now, but I remember writing a review for it a long time ago).

I had to turn my volume up a lot more to hear it, and then I went to browse the forum, I absent-mindedly left my mouse on the particular thread mood of a rant thread, and soon after I got the fright of my life.

I'm actually surprised I'm the first to post it.

Getting drunk on New Years

I don't drink... or smoke... or do any of those fun things... Instead I'm munching down on chocolate covered cherries and drinking ginger ale in a wine glass with some fancy edible flower in it that kind of tastes like... more cherries.

Blech... not very much. I'm a slow learner... through laziness or whatever. Which is probably why most of my stuff is what I'd consider to be sub-standard for the amount of time I've been making music.

Or maybe you guys have just taught me to have high standards.

Still, there's always next year. I'm not going to stop making music any time soon, so... we shall see what the future holds.

I learned how to properly mix 'n master my songs and how to use a bitcrusher wisely. That's about it.

I drank some awesome sparkling orange/clementine thing from Trader Joe's and played my Xbox from 11:00pm, December 31st 2011, to 12:01am, January 1st 2012. Aside from taking place in a new year, it was actually pretty uneventful.

Happy new year everyone!
I've just read my horoscope for this year and now i know that it's going to be an AMAZING year full of romance and new challenges which i will overcome. I will become a better person!
And i don't have to do anything for it, because my horoscope predicted it, so it'll all just come to me.
Horoscopes are a really reliable source for predicting what's to come!

Yes I noticed that too. Except my comments stayed the same amount. Probably something to do with the new year transition.
