The Watabou split was going extremely well. On track, even though it was going to be a tiny bit rushed.
Then I got the news:
I would have to submit everything to factory tonight if I was going to have it in time for my first show.
Balls, dude. Balls.

This does mean, however, that there will be nicer art, better mixing, and professional mastering by Alex again (yay)

I'll write more about this situation later, but for now I don't feel inclined to do so. I just thought I'd get the news out there

Productivity Overflow

I can say with great confidence that today and yesterday have been the most productive days since Take Control was recorded.
My check lists went from this:

To this:

And the lyrics went from single, clean sheets of paper with text, to four, fourth incarnation drafts with obnoxious corrections and illegible handwriting all over:

What does this mean for you though?
I know you don't all live in my head.... thankfully... for everyone.

New homepage for me

It's a sad day.
After having as the first website I've gone to when I opened my internet since 2000 (with the exception of when Brawl was coming out, since I set the SSBB website to my homepage in anticipation) I've had to change my home page.
Something weird is up with Firefox and RPGamer makes it freeze (as do a lot of things) and HG101 was the only website I thought made a decent replacement.
I didn't consider the Anime News Network though... maybe.... just maybe...
If you haven't been to hg101 and you like video games at all beyond the miserable apathy that is xbox live post-apocalyptic/military shooters, go LEARN yoself a thing or too, bitch.

Anyway, it's time to make extremely late breakfast and record.
Lapsang and scrambled eggs with possible blueberry/strawberry somewhat sorbet, somewhat smoothie, m@? Probably.

Better than my usual bagel with butter or with lox and no cream cheese (depending on money) and soda.


What's a Jicheal?
The answer is more obvious than you might think

Behind the video + other shitty show stories

A ton of you have seen this video...

But I never posted anything about the show really.
So, three years after this miserable show, I've decided to just give some back story.
Why, you might ask?
Well, it's the probably most popular video on youtube of me and I'm constantly forced to be reminded of it all, but, like how much I despise the whole "Nintendocore" fad and the people involved with making it worse, I've never felt compelled to address it because it never feels worth my time.
I figured that I might as well do it now.
I have nothing I feel compelled to work on, it's a funny video that brings me endless shame, and it's really popular (at least, popular for where I am on the popularity spectrum)

So let's answer all of the burning questions:
Why am I just standing there? Why is the audio not matched with the video? Why am I wearing all green? Why am I so miserable and absent minded looking? Why is this video so popular?...
...actually, I can't answer the last one...

Non-Bubblegum Octopus news

Sorry all, I know I said I'd do this twenty minutes from the Facebook update, but uh... I got side-tracked by trying to figure out how to record directly from my cassette recorder (I love this thing, seriously) into my computer.

Unpopular Pop Music Fantasies Tour 2010

Well, there it is; the tour poster for my ridiculous two week tour to the upper mid-west:
Unpopular Pop Music Fantasies
As you can see on the myspace, details are still be ironed out, and I won't be surprised if Indiana falls through entirely since it's such a mess... but that's why photoshop has layers, eh?
