I treated myself this year. 512gb steam deck, 512gb SD card, God of War, Ace Combat 7, Potion Craft, Vampire Survivors, FFXII, and Hades. I also bought some inexpensive music stuff. Thinking about Elden Ring for 35 bucks. Personal Details in comments.

 
 

Gaia to Go (2022): First song for Conundrum and Bass 4. I'm working on three albums at the moment, which is fine. I'm taking my time, writing them whenever I feel like it. I wonder which one will release first next year :)

 
 

Steam Deck is a wonderful time. My only issue so far is that the text in Cyberpunk is way too small (and I have a bit of double vision which makes it harder to read). Playing games while in bed is a great experience.

 
 

My previous post hinted at this, in a surprising turn of events, I was able to get a Steam Deck. It's wild, and I have to figure out which games to install while I decide on an SD card for the rest. I also need to get used to the controls. Very happy :)

 
 

I picked up a sale of 10 drum and bass sample libraries yesterday. I wish I had it when I was working on the album. Guess this means Conundrum and Bass 4 is coming early next year :) I'll also be decked out for the holiday. Not blowing Steam ;) I hope.

 
 

Bloodstained is a really good game. It took a while to get into it, but I'm glad I stuck with it. Maybe I should get Elden Ring sometime since it seems to be a favorite, possibly even a game of the year? ;)


 
 

Lazy Day (2022): I'm in such a productive mood that I'm going to knock out this Chill album most likely before the end of the year. But as promised, I won't release any new albums until next year. Nothing like relaxing music after some drum n' bass :)

 
 

Ghost with the Cosmos (2022): After about a month of deactivating my Twitter, I can say that while it has been a great burden lifted, I also miss seeing what you guys tweet. I might try to write some more chill music before the end of the year :D

 
 

The Drum and Bass cat is back! Conundrum and Bass 3. 10 Tracks, free download. This is my last album for 2022. Thank you for listening. One and only bump.


 
 

New album "Video Game Music Vault" has been released. 91 tracks, free. Contains music from games I worked on. As such, music cannot be used in any other project. Thank you. Bump


 
 

A Hero Prays (2020): From Chips III. I love writing Chiptunes. The abscess under my arm seems to be doing well. The tiny lump on my neck has not gone away after a treatment of antibiotics, so I'll have to make it to a doctor and make sure it's nothing.

 
 

Bones and Black Magic (v2) (Xeo) (2022): I picked up a sweet set of virtual drums called BFD3, and the first song I wanted to try them on was Xeo's song, because I felt the original drums were too low. Let me know if these are a better fit for the song :)

 
 

My top song for this year (Apple Music, I don't use Spotify atm) is 6969 (Level Up) by Ninja Sex Party. It probably would've been my top song on Spotify as well. I mentioned this before, but I have a silly playlist I listen to when I sleep or bejeweled.

 
 

Destroy All Machines -Battle- (2019): Battle themes are one of my favorite things about video game music. This is one of my best original battle themes. I'd like to hear your favorite theme as well if you'd like to share :)

 
 

I don't have an update on the lump on my throat. However, at the same time, a mass was forming under my right armpit, at first causing a small amount of pain, but today it hurt like hell, so I went to the ER. It's an abscess and they drained it.

 
 

I'm thankful for all the people in my life, especially those that consider me a friend. I often feel isolated from everyone else, living in a bubble where I cannot reach out to other people. But I can always come here and love and feel loved. Thank you.

 
 

Peace Offering (2020): Happy Thanksgiving if you celebrate it :) If not, happy day regardless :p I'm having trouble finishing my next 2 albums, but I'm sure inspiration will strike at any moment. Might pick up a synth that specializes in SNES sound.

 
 

Cat as Trophy (2022): I don't like this time of year. So many insane music product sales, and I cannot afford anything. If there was ever a time to toss a coin to your local electronic bard, now would be it :p Health news in the comments.

 
 
 

I'm positive I mentioned this before, but Linkin Park's Reanimation album is one of my favorite albums of all time. The remixes felt more powerful than the originals. This song is my favorite. I had this album in mind when I made Walking in Circles II.

 
 

Depression and anxiety are a really big problem for me. They almost always prevent me from playing a game, and even writing music. I have to jump through mental hurdles just to load a game up. Anxiety stops me from playing multiplayer games. I hate it.

 
 

I know I'm late to the topic at hand, but I did in fact vote early via mail-in ballot. I've just been drunk sleeping all day. Today is the 25 year anniversary of my father's death, and I feel okay. Writing that one song helped get out a ton of emotion.

 
 

Zars (2022): Not content with an entire album of music for my dad. I wanted to write at least one more song, to let out the emotions I feel. I, at the very least, lived out 25 years with the knowledge my father gave me. I hope to live longer, we'll see :P

 
 

I'm having trouble holding things together as I get closer to the 9th. Reminded of the days before my father died, and how there were signs I missed that could've changed everything. I hope you have photos of your loved ones. I only got the 1 I showed you

 
 

Due to my limited funds, I can usually only do one or two things for fun. I can sub to FFXIV (I have max retainers so it's like 30 something bucks a month), maybe buy a full-priced game (This month is Tactics Ogre). I don't think there's anything else atm

 
 

I give up on social media (except Dtoid, this place is my jam :p). Social media makes me sad. I prefer live chats like Discord. I miss the old days of the internet. Shit I miss the old days in general. Nov 9th is the 25 year anniversary of my dad's death.

 
 

NES Music! That numbers game I did with my songs was neat. I got to hear some songs I haven't heard in a while. One thing is that the list of songs doesn't include remixes, remakes, or sequels. So the entire Walking in Circles II didn't count among others

 
 

So I keep a spreadsheet of all the unique original songs I've written (905 songs). If it interests you, choose a number from between 1-905 and I'll try to link to that song. There are small gaps that aren't online, so I'll link to the closest one above.

 
 

Boat or Fly (2022): Making an exception to my no promoting individual song rule because I think this song is pretty awesome. Written for Conundrum and Bass 3. I'm losing interest in ESO somewhat, but I don't know what else to play. I have options, though.


 
 

I'm tired of promoting my music. So I have good news. You'll hear a lot more non-music stuff about me from now on. I may share when an album is released, so no worries about my mental health. I've been playing Elder Scrolls Online (Champ 400). Pretty fun.
