I am sorry I have not been doing proper updates. For transparency sake, I haven’t been writing my next book, either. A lot has gone on over the last month, and my mind has been everywhere but the keyboard. I think I’m back into the groove, now.
No, false alarm!
My next book, yes, I should probably talk about that at some time. It’s mostly done, and I only have a few points I need to either elaborate on, or completely re-write. A special thanks to “Some Guy Named Rob” for putting up with my bullshit over the last month or so. Have you check his YouTube profile? He’s doing some really cool stuff, and that is aside from his podcast about my book! The music he produces weekly is some of the best instrumental ambient/soundscape stuff you will find. I am not saying that from bias, it’s very much the truth. I will fall on that sword, if I have to. His podcast voiceover? Beautiful. Am I gushing again? I’m sorry.
SPEAKING OF PODCASTS
I have been spending a lot of time working out my next “script”, and I really hope you all enjoy and subscribe. I am sorry if you are sick of my shilling, but I will continue until I no longer feel the need for an external source of advertising.
Also, I’m thinking of dropping the numbers from the podcast. Verdict? Leave a comment below, or get hold of my privately. Whatever works for you, really.
The irony of this post is that recently, Rob made reference to Ouroboros in one of his podcasts. The idea of talking about blogging/podcast/vlogs while you’re doing one is clunky and awkward. I feel it is okay in this context, however. He gave my book some very nice words, and I never expected it!
That, coupled with the fact that this is one of the funniest, yet not pretentious, things I have heard: I thought I would share the majesty.
I finally got my ass in gear and got one of these done.
I meant what I said in the video! If you have something to brag about, even if it’s just putting your pants on the right way today: tell me about it in a comment somewhere! I would love to hear about it!
About the song — it’s Forlorn by All Cut Up. It was written by Melo and Kev, making it one of the few ACU songs not 100% written by Kev. I do backup vocals, drums, and I programmed the piano at the end. It will probably always remain as my proudest bit of producing I have done.
I have been horrible at keeping everyone updated and current with what’s going on. I am now about to waste your time going over where I have been for the last few months!
First off: You’re Not Dead. I have been waiting almost a year to do a re-issue of this book. I have been working with Olympia over in Britain to get it all fixed up for the launch. Finally, I have news! It looks like the book will be getting it’s day in the sun in the next couple of months. I will do a proper update when I get a day, but it has been streamlined back to its original state.
That’s right! It’s not 100 pages, but it is back to just being the tale of me in hospital! No longer is it padded with short stories and obvious fiction!
That brings me to point two! New book at the 75% mark. I have to thank the few people who have been assisting me in my journey, and I hope to have it at a more consolidated state soon. It has turned out to be a collection of short stories. I have done most of the writing and self-editing phase, I just really need to flush out one of the threads. I have a tonne of ideas, a very clear purpose that I want to work towards, now I just need to get the courage to actually do it.
Thing three is an apology. I have dropped the ball on my YouTube channel as well as here. I have scripts for future updates, I just cannot find the time to piece them together right now. The biggest, and most important one, is that I have an idea to jay-splain genre’s. An idea I had recently is to do a bunch of short updates reminding everyone how Civics in Canada work. I have seen too many people blame the wrong branch of government for issues they have no say over, meanwhile giving a pass to those who deserve to the held accountable. I am torn and far from an expert on either of these facts, but does anyone have interest in either of these ideas?
I know that it doesn’t sound a lot. I am, of course, keeping things out which still don’t give me a full excuse to do updates as infrequent as I do. All I can promise is that cool things are coming down the pipeline in the next couple of months!
Yeah, I did another one celebrating Joel’s birthday. I only meant it to be a “short”, but YouTube decided that it needed to be a full video.
I can share it on here, where the short I cannot. This is a demonstration of the shorts I have done. They are easy to produce, but not too long to take up your day. There is a link to the full playlist at the end of this video, and I implore you to take a look!
