1. I'm now 27, and again, I was out at a Magic Tournament. Did much better this time around!
2. NEWEST SONG THAT I ADMIT EXISTS: "Force Of Dragons"- Working on Fate Reforged as I type!
More after the break!
3. NEWEST SONG FOR REALS: "I Found The Title To This Song..." A rarity, if anything.
4. MUSIC VIDEOS?
Sadly, none, but that doesn't mean my YouTube Channel's been dormant. There has been plenty of live videos and con recaps available on my site.
5. CON GIGS?!?!?
Like, 10 of them.
Sands of Anime, Miami Hurricon, Omni Expo, Hero Hype Con, Anime Festival Orlando, Creator Owned Expo, Orlando Nerd Fest, Umicon Daytona, Chibi Pa; Suki Desu, UltraCon of South Florida.
6. WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT IN 2015?
-My second album, Status Quo Radio!
-Looking to play some more cons, and play more traditional shows
-Better production on everything!
-Some more stuff in Rock Band
-Just more in general. 2013 I made a lot of music, 2014 I played a lot of shows, hopefully I can find the balance this year.
7. ALSO YOU GUYS SHOULD TOTALLY LISTEN TO THE Echo Chamber Podcast, coolest of the Zone-Casts!
8. KICKING OFF BEST OF 2014 SHIT!
FAVORITE MOVIE OF THE YEEEEAR!- "Guardians Of The Galaxy"
I didn't see a lot this year, but it's James Gunn, what do you expect? It's good to see that you can still feel him even with Disney and a large budget at his back.
MOVIE THAT WAS RUINED BY HAVING ROBOT CARS RIDING ROBOT DINOSAURS- "Transformers: Age Of Extinction"
Yeah. I was way more interested in the slow pace and Mark Wahlberg's side story that I could not care less about the Transformers.
TOP 40 SONG(S) THAT PISSED ME OFF THE LEAST- "Uptown Funk" by Bruno Mars and "Pompeii" by Bastille
Radio was pretty bad this year, between a lot of repeats from last year, and Iggy Azelia trying to be Nicki Minaj without any of her positive qualities.
So, I had to settle for these two. Rock is dead as far as Clear Channel goes.
Uptown Funk is a late entry, but goddamn did it impress on one listen. It's been a while since a song made me go "SHUT THE FUCK UP, WHAT IS THAT?". I gave it another listen just to be sure I wanted to slot it in here. TO be fair, my eyes were on the clock, but in a sense, I didn't want it to end. Bruno Mars does get a lot of shit, but what made me put this on the list was this:
60% of the song is a very spartan beat, drums and that "Do-do-do" part, but he carries it, then gets tired, and is like, "OK fuckawesome 70's funk band, I'm tired, you can have it".
Pompeii isw just so goddamn weird, that I had to sit up and take notice. Not every day you run into a song thats two corpses taking to each other in the aftermath of a volcano eruption. This was one of those songs I found out about through Todd In The Shadows first, so I was able to properly dig into it before the radio made me hate it.
BEST WRESTLING MOMENT SUBSEQUENTLY RUINED BY WWE- Wrestlemania XXX with Daniel Bryan winning the ttitle to get injured months later, and Cesaro winning the Battle Royal just to be a jobber.
BEST ALTERNATIVE TO THAT SHIT- Slacker Radio for the Android.
Fuck you terrestrial radio, I can have a station that's idea of old punk music extends beyond "Those Two Ramones songs".
GAME OF THE YEAR BECAUSE I HAVE TO DO THAT- Shovel Knight
We heard you liked NES games so we put an NES game in your NES game and made it so you can play it anywhere.
WHY DIDN'T ANYONE TELL ME ABOUT THIS SOONER? Assassin's Creed 2
I can see why this iteration of the franchise is so popular. The landscape is beautiful, the characters are charming (especially Uncle Mario), and it's fun to fuck around in 15th Century Italy stabbin' dudes.
FAVORITE PERSON I SHARE A BIRTHDAY WITH- MC Bat Commander of The Aquabats
