1. I'm 24 now. Heck yeah.
2. NEW SONG: "Status Quo Radio" by my old band, The Bastards. We were the biggest thing in 1968, and this was our hit single. I finally got the rights back to it!
Status Quo Radio by RhythmBastard
3. It will be the new theme song to my radio show, "The Bunker" coming back to Ozone Radio this Thursday!
4. THREE Rock Band Network Songs for 2012:
"This Gigantic Robot Kills" by MC Lars
"Lars Attacks!" by MC Lars
"We Are Not Alone" by Akira The Don
"Radio Days, Pt. 1" by ME if I have time.
5. Another New Year's Resolution: One gig at a Con, preferably I-Con coming this March/April. I don't live in a very musical part of NY. The most you'll see at my music scene is old guys covering "Me And Julio Down By The Schoolyard", so gigs are few and far between not many want to venture into the city. I figured at a con, I may not get much in the way of fans, but it'll be a receptive audience, and that's the chance I need.
OK, now for my 2011 Highlights-
BEST TWEET- The time the official Axe Cop Twitter account retweeted my video of "Axe Cop: The Song" at The Vault.
That was a good day.
BEST FLASH GAME- Sagittarian 3
Where you can hear my song "Radio Days Pt. 1"!
BEST MOVIE THAT I WOULD ADMIT TO LIKING- "Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes"
The best part was the few seconds of silence right after that character spoke. I never thought I could get so attached to the plight of a CGI monkey.
BEST MOVIE I FINALLY SAW- "Robocop"
The dad from That 70's Show tells some bitches to leave and rubs over a retarded fish man.
FAVORITE GAME- It was a tough choice, but I have to go with Arkham City.
Rocksmith has been a drug these past couple weeks, but nothing has tickled my brain in so many places like AC. Save for the Catwoman levels, the game, while not as cohesive or solid story-wise as Asylum, still manages to please. If AA was American Idiot, Arkham City would be 21st Century Breakdown.
FAVORITE WAY TO PLAY A GAME- Gears Of War as not manly as possible
Me and my friend start off with a hearty BRONUX and then play "Hey Homies!" by The Aquabats as we have a variety of teas coupled with Mike's Hard Lemonade. Then my friend describe the different architectural styles of each building we shoot Locust in. He seems to be more fond of GoW1 than GoW2, which is what we're playing through now.
FAVORITE TOP 40 SONG I'LL ADMIT TO LIKING- "Rolling In The Deep" by Adele
As much as the overplay of "Someone Like You" is starting to wear on me, I like this a lot. It's intimate, itt's got a strong beat, and listening to it with headphones now, I WISH I could make something sound this well put together with so little.
FAVORITE TOP 40 SONG I WON'T ADMIT TO LIKING- "Party Rock Anthem" by LMFAO
I'm sorry, I'm sorry, I'm sorry, I'm sorry, I'm sorry, I'm sorry, I'm sorry, I'm sorry, I'm sorry, I'm sorry, I'm sorry, I'm sorry, I'm sorry, I'm sorry, I'm sorry, I'm sorry, I'm sorry, I'm sorry, but it sounds really happy and they're at the right amount of awareness for what the hell they're doing.
BEST INTERNET TV SHOW- Dino Hunter, MD
Dinos, action, POW AND music by me, The Rhythm Bastard!
BEST SONG RELEASED ON THE ROCK BAND NETWORK- "Steven Wells (He Was The Greatest)" by Akira The Don
Oh, is that my name on it? Hmm... It was one of Rock Band's Recommended songs... AND NOW ONLY ONE DOLLAR!!!
FAVORITE SONG ON REGULAR ROCK BAND- "I Believe In A Thing Called Love" by The Darkness
FOR OBVIOUS REASONS.
FAVORITE BAND I JUST BECAME AWARE OF THIS YEAR- The Black Keys
I picked up "Brothers" and "El Camino" over the past couple months, and I really dig their sound. Both are good for wasteland wandering in Fallout 3.
OCCUPATION MOST DESERVING OF A PUNCH TO THE FACE- Cops/Politicians (save for Bernie Sanders)
Two groups of people who made perfectly clear that if you're outside their little world, you're FUCKED.
FAVORITE SONG I RELEASED IN 2011- "From A Mile Away (Boom, Headshot)"
FAVORITE GIG OF 2011- The Gig Of Legend
So overall, a pretty good year.
And that's it for now. More to come!
