I kept thinking that and choking up and crying. he would fucking love this so much and it's so incredible but it's also painfully bittersweet that it's because of him we did it and he doesn't get to hear it with us all. I'm going through and watching the VOD of the listening party now and Jace's entry just played and my god.... I'm gonna cry a lot today
but hearing Katamari and Trohnics (and Darmock and Jason!) between songs makes my heart soar.
uploaded some DI bass and guitar of the Triangle and Pulse 1 (two takes of Pulse 1) respectively. JMR, please do whatever with the DI. I haven't had a chance to get my recording stuff set up in my new place so I figured I'd just get the parts recorded and send over. Sorry I got it down to the wire of the deadline!
Crazy day today but gonna see if I can record me singing and clapping and send it over later
I'm definitely a style biter. I didn't get into Windbreakers until Robby showed me Windjammers at the Shredquarters and talked about everyone wearing them to the tournaments. For years I was a strictly "all black clothes all the time" type and didn't deviate from that much until the past couple years. But I'm honored to be mentioned in the same breath as those greats. (assuming I'm the Karl being referenced.) Can't remember if I ever posted this here but I recently had a sweet find at a vintage booth at a punk rock flea market:
I've seen these guys circulating in videos recently. J-Pop, VGM/Anime Theme inspired Jazz Ensemble based out of NYC. They fucking slap. They do a bunch of Perfume covers, which is severely my shit. They're fronted by a Grammy-Nominated Saxophonist so when I did a deep dive into their stuff, I was shocked to see how small their following is. How do we get them to play MAGFest? They're like a U.S. based T-Square
Saturday was a really weird and really great day for me. As many of you know, I was at SnappleMan and Beef-Clef's wedding. When the memorial service for Sean got announced for the same day, I was a bit bummed and conflicted, but knew in my heart that the only right thing for me to do was go to both. I just wanted to take a moment to say congrats to the beautiful couple, SnappleMan and Beef-Clef!!! Good seeing other shizzies there including a long overdue appearance of PongBall.
P.S. Snapple was so fucking funny during the ceremony. Also he tried to get crabs on his wedding day.
P.S.S. We talked about Game Gear during the reception.
