Good-bye for now

Posted in Uncategorized on November 25, 2011 by evilpacman18

It’s been over a year since I started this blog and I have almost 100 albums posted. When I started this blog I had just moved to Texas, and I wasn’t doing anything with my life except working a retail job and watching Dragon Ball Z in its entirety. Music kept me alive. I didn’t know anybody in Texas and I didn’t really have any ways to meet anyone. I wasn’t a big fan of the few people my age that I did meet. So I was lonely. I spent most of my time on the computer when I wasn’t working and when I was on the computer I was always listening to music and finding new music to download. The situation I was in was perfect for starting this blog. Music connected with me, and I wanted to share the feeling I got from certain bands, albums, songs, with whoever cared enough to read what I wrote.

I eventually got into APU and started in January. Last semester I had more free time so I was able to post about once a week at least. This semester is ridiculous. I’m SOOO busy. I’m making a point of having an easier semester next year. I’m taking 19 units right now, (9 classes) working a tech support job, playing more difficult solo piano pieces than I’ve ever played before, accompanying for our school’s Men’s Chorale (man choir), accompanying for other students, trying to find a girl to date cuz the last one ended badly, and so on. At the same time, I’m less lonely. I don’t need to write a post to have someone listen to something I’m listening to. I can just talk to them about it. I don’t need to occupy myself with faux-responsibilities on the internet I make to distract myself and spend my time pretending to be productive. I enjoyed making these posts once, now it’s more like I see the bookmark in my bookmarks bar and think “Dang, I haven’t posted in over 3 weeks, I should get to that, as much as I don’t want to.” It’s not fun anymore. So I’m ending it for now. I imagine I have enough stuff on here that anybody would’ve never heard of for anybody to stay busy with for a while. If you want music recommendations for a specific genre, I’ll still be around. Comment on a post or e-mail me at evilpacman18@yahoo.com. I’ll get it. But for now, I’m done posting. Maybe in the future I’ll need to start doing this again. Maybe over breaks I can put up a thing or two if I’m really psyched about an album I’m listening to. But good-bye for now.

In case you were wondering

I am, in fact, still alive. Just very busy. I’ll have a new album up as soon as possible. Probably Critical Meat by You Slut!

:D

I just bought this beauty for $240. I’m in love. Just thought I’d let you know.

An idea

Posted in Uncategorized on August 9, 2011 by evilpacman18

I was thinking, I would be a lot quicker in posting albums if I hadn’t set a standard on how much I write per album that I don’t always feel in the mood to meet. My main reason for not posting so often is not knowing how much I can say about whatever it is I’m listening to. So. Should I continue posting like once a week (or slightly less as it’s been a week and a half since the last one) or should I post more often but be less detailed about what I’m posting? I’d probably still write a short paragraph and definitely still leave stand-out tracks but I could post like once every two days or more if I didn’t have to write much for it. Drop a comment.

Help my friends out PLEASE!

In short, a couple of my music major friends entered a contest to remix Sleep to Dream by Swimming with Dolphins and they stand a chance to win $1000 and to be featured on the band’s website. They need votes. I’m helping out cuz as a blogger and forumite, it’s a lot easier for me to advertise to a lot of people in a short time. The voting runs until June 8th and takes under a minute if you’re fairly quick. I am very confident that some time in between now and June 8th each one of you 70-something viewers a day can find time to follow these steps

CHECK YOUR E-MAIL

CLICK LINK IN E-MAIL YOU JUST RECEIVED FROM SITE

DONE

See? Easy. Now please please please PLEASE do it! I really want this for them (and to be honest it’d be cool if they owed me for helping them win so much)

PS – If you actually plan on listening to the remix you’re voting for, it’ll take more than under a minute. Swimming with Dolphins is some synthpop band I wouldn’t put on my iTunes.

Finals week

Posted in Uncategorized on May 3, 2011 by evilpacman18

Hi. It’s finals week. This is where I do nothing but play piano or Halo (stress relief) for 16 hours a day. I’ll probably get something new up this weekend but if not definitely a couple days after that. Once the week is over I’m just going down to where I used to live to hang out with old friends for a couple days so I can’t say I’ll have time but after that I’m flying back to Dallas to do nothing all summer (we’ll be back to MUCH more regular updates then). I’m excited to be so close to being able to put as much time as I should into this blog. I do think about it a lot (mostly cuz I can’t open my browser without seeing the tab for it.)

Question

Posted in Uncategorized on March 21, 2011 by evilpacman18

How would it affect the blog if I just removed the categories altogether? So the numbers don’t matter anymore and I could post anything without remorse. It’d probably make for slightly more frequent posts. Or hopefully at least. Maybe that’s wishful thinking. It’s so hard to find time. I’m looking at Fragile by Yes and Ha by Doseone as my next posts.
