Pinned post

Anyway I have The Archivist pinned on my profile, but I don't think I ever shared Moon Base on this account, which with time I have also realized is probably a better listening experience than The Archivist anyway, so here it is in all its spacy glory.

And now the entire thing is finally on Bandcamp! I'm real late to the draw on uploading my stuff to Bandcamp, I've had a couple of albums up there for a while, but one of them is just old stuff I made while I was basically still teaching myself how to do any of this, and so getting more of my stuff up there is long overdue.

I appreciate anyone who listens!

Took me a few hours but I finally got through White Palace, and all I have to say is Good Lord.

Hollow Knight 

I mean this in the nicest way possible

Hollow Knight 

Currently attempting White Palace and had to stop because I was so mad my stomach hurt

Something in my room resonates audibly at about an E when I sneeze really loudly.

That is all.

I put together some backing tracks for a few of the songs so me and the keyboard player could sit down and figure out patches that worked for each of the songs and I was delighted to have some grunt work to do, and even more delighted when the keyboard player confided in me that he originally thought my transcribed recreations of the drum tracks were actually just isolated from the originals. Feeling very competent and fulfilled these days, playing with a group rules.

I've had a couple more practices with the group I'm playing with and I've been thinking about how I should even dress on stage and I think this is a cool idea.

A while back I put yellow laces on my Docs, and I only just realized that I could totally put yellow wrap strings on my black jazz bass and have matchies.

I actually tried to move a while back, I don't even remember where anymore, but I could never get the aliasing to work, despite being pretty sure I had done everything right and waited more than enough time for caches to refresh and stuff. If I can't get it to work this time I'll probably dispense with it entirely just in the interest of having an account I actually want to use again.

My usage of this account has dropped off a little bit, partially because I've just been busy with stuff that doesn't really warrant posting about, but my desire to use the platform is definitely having a big drain placed on it by the fact that this instance is kind of... bad, severely under-moderated, and apparently several instances have defederated with it at this point. I'll find a place to move eventually.

Hollow Knight spoilers 

I went in pretty unspoiled on everything and only allowed myself to Google anything major after I had rolled at least one of the endings, I had no idea The Hollow Knight was not the final boss of the "best" endings, and I really suspected most of the way through that I would end up fighting the king last.

I never really thought I would get this into a souls-like, but I think the 2D platformer presentation went a long way towards easing me into it. Good game!

Hollow Knight spoilers 

Welp, rolled credits on Hollow Knight, the most basic ending, granted, but I'm busy today and don't have time to sit and hit my head against Radiance. I probably won't 100% it, but I do want to keep playing, I didn't even begin to get all of the goodies.

metal stuff 

So Maiden formally has taken responsibility for the whole Belshazzar's Feast thing? Fuckin sick.

Never played with an ensemble before, playing with a real drummer was absolutely exhilarating. We broke into a little jam at one point while the keyboard player set up and I think I was probably beaming by the end.

First ever band practice went okay, I'm told. Flubbed a couple of things because I was nervous, but otherwise I think I played solidly enough. I had no idea to what extent I could sort of have my own fun with the songs and the answer seemed to be "go nuts," so I'm writing little fills and stuff to throw in. We do it again in 2 weeks and I'm a lot less nervous this time.

I am either late or earlier for Out of Touch Thursday, but I have to play this at a practice tomorrow so

pers, medical+ 

Anyway if you get shuffled off of Medicaid like I did because you live in a state that is actively hostile towards poor people maybe shop around for charity funded places with sliding scale systems. I just paid $20 for my first doctor's visit in 2 years with no insurance. My life would be so drastically different right now if I had known this was an option 2 years ago, like it's hard to even quantify.
