I've been invested listening to these on and off over the years, and you are and can be an inspiration, as well as something many of us out there relate to. (Plus your jams kick some serious ass, so that.)

I'm glad you're realizing some of the things you've wanted, and I hope a change of scenery does you some good. I wish nothing but the best for you dude, and I'm glad the folks around the net (and especially the little cubby that is NG) have been able to help.

RealFaction responds:

Aww thank you! :) I've already recorded the first two episodes of the new podcast, but trying to make it weekly, so backlogging. Some shows will be live though, and I'll get to record some content from that. Thank you. :) I appreciate ya.

Real talk! Realest one as far as I can remember. :) Did you happen to get a deeper voice too? Not just thinking of the intro... maybe these recent tribulations toughened you up a bit. maybe it's the recording. Towards the end the vision almost seems to be getting a bit fatalistic though, live right or die trying, it's an admirable outlook but... resource management and all.

Hope you figure things out. The new soundtrack projects seem like a good route; new site looks great. Hope that starts bringing in some of those much needed resources.

Regarding therapy, I really believe artistic expression is a better form of therapy than anything you could ever pay for. To be an artist seems to be in tune with your emotions, and some of the greatest realizations and creations come of the darkest times. I feel like it's a tool not just to get better, and improve yourself, but to inspire others when you express those trials. Weather it's in a transparent form like this or something a bit more abstract. Everything contains some sort of feeling. Something you can hopefully relate or connect to and grow as an audience too.

I'm glad you're figuring things out and really understanding and defining what you live for. Creative occasions definitely don't deserve the stigma they have either. It's not just a vent for us but inspiration for the rest of the world; all those people who slave away at whatever jobs they think they do find fulfillment in; possibly also searching for a better path.

Glad you got that fan sorted out too. ;) Looking forward to those coming projects and hope it all looks brighter from here on! Maybe not always easy but: always fulfilling.

Thank you. Here's to hopin.
