This track is in honor of William Burns. Around 10 years ago he convinced a faction of newgrounds audio artists to start making really bad music. That movement had a huge impact on me.

He goes by SmithCommaJohn these days but he used to go by Spikrod. I remember someone saying his alias wasn't a race thing but hey, people be misunderstanding. I get called "Carl" and it drives me insane. As a throwback and reminder that you can never run away from the past I featured some dusty old Spikrod samples from one of his chatrooms. Here's to looking at you kid.

I know this track has a weak ass ending but truthfully I'm feeling lazy. Maybe I'll fix it up laturz. Create, don't stop, arts.

EDIT: This needs arps. I want to add them in but I'm soooooo lazy.

Holy shit! I thought i was having a stroke! i was burning toast (like ya do) when i heard a pitch shifted version of my voice. This gave me a solid 3 seconds of anxiety, other-worldly fear and intense panic.
Thats my voice in there!!! i made a useless sample pack of cutup phrases while shitfaced on rum recorded while just fucking around in a stikcam chat [with spikrod]. blew my mind that you used it. im gonna have to go thru my old external now just to be sure. That is definitely my "fuckin" but my neurosis is clawing and biting at my brain like a trapped rat.

btw track is dope as fuck, after i settled down i actually listened to it and enjoyed it a lot

Quarl responds:

OMG I've been wondering who that sample pack was. I've been opening it for years and sprinkling some of it into tracks. Off the top of my head Panic Attack and Suicide Haiku.

I'm so glad I finally have a face and a name for the folder. I should have guessed it was you :D

5 stars for the Wilhelm scream

Quarl responds:

Bahaha, what up Jass :D

This is epic.
The vocals are perfect, as usual.
Love the piano, as always.
What's with this 8Bit theme ya got going on in this one? I like it :P
I feel the only thing possibly lacking from a lot of your songs is flow.
10/10, as usual.
Wonderful job ^^

Quarl responds:

Yeah, I hear you. T'ws cramming to get the track done fast. I always screw up the writing process by getting impatient ADD

Very, very, very unique piece of art you got here.

Quarl responds:

Glee, thank you.
