Recording My Own Damn Album (Day 3)

So, I’m putting this project on pause. I’m gonna come back to this one. As of now, I’m gonna start working in recording some songs that don’t require much. I think that’ll be easier. Once I get the hang of this shit, I’ll come back to what I was working on and finish it up. But for now, I’m doing the easier shit.   It shouldn’t take seven hours to record some simple power chords perfectly, right? I’m not that bad of a guitarist.

Story Time 2

Before coronavirus, I had two jobs. I worked at a local deli that gave half of the proceeds to charities, and I had one that was more of a community service. I was the manager/owner (I guess that’s what it’s called) of some indie venues around town. There’s one in Denton, Dallas, and Fort Worth. I didn’t get paid for this, buyback i loved it the most. I got to hear a bunch of cool bands, connect with people, and be a part of a community. It was really fulfilling.  I’m kind of a local c

Recording My Own Damn Album (Day 1)

It's taken seven hours and a limp, lifeless wrist, but I've finally gotten one lead guitar part recorded for one song. I want to cry, but I'm not sure whether it's tears of joy or agony.  Now for the rhythm guitar! That should be easier since it's just basic power chords. On top of that, I've also got to record an acoustic guitar. Then I have to record bass, vocals, and find a drummer that would be willing to help me out. This is gonna be a long journey. Oh, and I have to mix it and do

TikToks That I Will Never Forget

This one scarred me for life, and I will forever hear this in the darkest corners of my mind. https://vm.tiktok.com/ZMJwBXSDj/   This one is fucking hilarious. https://vm.tiktok.com/ZMJwSRQ1V/   No explanation, just- https://vm.tiktok.com/ZMJwSj1R8/   Love to see it https://vm.tiktok.com/ZMJwSaPLk/   It’s funny ‘cause it’s true https://vm.tiktok.com/ZMJwSqoT2/   [Every single TikTok that Miley Cyrus has posted]   Thi

Story Time

I've got a story to tell. In 2019, I got to play some live shows with a band (not my band; I've never been in band). This wasn't just any show. There were scouts from some major record labels there. I'm not gonna say which ones. I did great, and I was even called back for an encore (in which we just played covers). After I was done, I had five scouts waiting to talk to me. I talked to all of them, and they all wanted the same thing: to buy my songs and employ me as a songwriter. I turn

I Can’t Believe I’m Actually Going Through With This

Why’d I let y’all talk me into this? We’ll never know. I’ll just say you twisted my arm.    To the people that wanted to see this, @Hungry Hungry Supermodels @BillieMyLove, prepare for disappointment.    Disclaimer: pretty explicit, raunchy, very weird   Alright, that’s one that I just came up with. (I wanna go teach that to a bunch of little kids whenever I get done typing this stuff; that is hilarious). Here’s the original. It’s terrible.   I’m going

Dick Song

I'm gonna continue my dick song from the fangirls thread. Disclaimer: this gets pretty explicit and is very raunchy. Wow, I only gagged twice while writing that. 

Someone Look At My Shit, Please

I need someone(s) to look at this and help me fix my problems. Here it is. My main problem is the fucking time change and making it sound fluid. It's kinda choppy, and it kinda disrupts the flow. Someone tell me what I need to do to make it better. (I hate writing in 6/4, but then 7/4 just makes it so much worse. The things you do for music 🙄). I've tried finding the beat division that would make it equivalent to 4/4, stretching the rhythm to adjust to 7/4, and then speeding up the tempo to

Merry Christmas, I Guess

Don't read this.   I have not slept in two days, my eyes are burning, I've watched all three of the Bridget Jones movies twice, and I'm too caffeinated to care. Today's been good so far. I've drank seven cups of coffee (I almost hate it more than alcohol, and I loathe the taste of alcohol). My girlfriend and I made a bet that whoever stays up the longest get $50 (the loser has to watch Love Actually). I may have employed some underhanded tactics, but when she wakes up she owe

Tango in A Minor

I started working on this tango, and I'm proud of it. It's a work-in-progress, but I'll share it anyways. (Also, if you've got a better title, please suggest it. I like the simplicity of "Tango in A Minor", but I want something more creative).   Here.   Aside from shitty love songs, I actually make real music. This is always the stuff I'm most proud of.    If you actually read this shit, and you've got any questions, comments, suggestions, etc., go ahead and sp

And Now for Something Completely Different

And now, a break from shoving my shitty songs down your throats. (Not that anyone reads these anways). Also, if anyone gets the reference in my title, then you've got my respect.   Green Day isn't the Network. Here's why. The Network is from Switzerland (that's the narrative now, right?). Green Day is from California. How could they be the same band? Hell, The Network doesn't even speak English (unless you count the two albums they recorded in English). The members

F*ck!

So, I fixed MDWAISS, but then I got writers block. All I need is a second verse, but I can't come up with it.    To make matters worse, I woke up with a lovely little melody in my head. As opposed to quickly writing it down, I decided to eat food (fucking idiot). After I ate, I realized that I totally forgot it.   In short, fml. I'm gonna go slam my head against a wall until I remember that damned melody.

Huzzah!

Harken ye, inspiration has struck! I can now fix my song MDWAISS, but it's gonna be... blue.    And it's gonna look super weird written down.    But it's gonna be the best damn song I've ever written (and the most embarrassing, but not in a bad way).

My Green Day Instagram Account Part 1

So about an hour ago I decided to start a Green Day fan account on Instagram. It's something I've been thinking about doing for a while, since I'm such a big fan of Green Day. I also follow a few Green Day fan accounts on my personal account so I thought, why not give it a try? I'm hoping this account becomes pretty popular, but even if I only get a few followers, it will still be nice to just chat with fellow Green Day fans. So far I only have like 5 followers, but that's not surprising because

FOAMF full album in 8-bit

So some of you might remember that I shared my 8-bit versions of Father of All and Fire Ready Aim on here around 6-7 months ago. And you liked them, and the ratings on YouTube were good as well, so over the last two months I recreated the entire new album in 8-bit. Well, actually I did almost all of them the week after the release and two of them yesterday and today lol If you want to listen to the playlist, here it is: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v6Rs0Mx0RjA&list=PLuTFVcmqhL1NWHR

The time Billie Joe reposted my video.

This was literally the last thing I expected.  One of my favourite Green Day songs. I love reading comments that say "please play it live"    Juliet's trying to find out what she wants but she don't know Experience has got her down

Father of All... Testament of unfit thoughs

I had a hard time trying to decide if I post this here or another place of the forum. But here seems more appropiate, because this be LONG. I've been digesting the new record since the first leak, and trying to understand why Green Day did this as it is. First thoughs were around the "classic" experimentation and eclectic sound, that at this point of their carreer, is the main rule. A lot of people were unimpress, or in the worst of cases, overreacting for the falsettos and that Billie Joe and c

"Oh Yeah!" 8 bit version

So as we all know "Oh Yeah" just came out a couple hours ago, and I don't wanna make a single thread for every time a new song comes out, so I'm using this blog. If you guys don't know, I recently made 8-bit (and, by request, 16-bit) versions of "Father of All..." and "Fire, Ready, Aim", and many people seemed to like them. And now, "Oh Yeah!" has its own 8-bit remake as well! yeah thats all, next post probably after the album is released

You taught me how to live.

2009 for me ended with a broken promise: my parents were supposed to take me to my very first Green Day concert. We were already talking about tickets when they changed, well... actually a woman made them change their mind. I failed my first year of high school, I had no friends and I preferred being alone in my room every day. They were worried so they decided to take me to a psychologist who told them I didn't deserve to go to that tour date. Oh man, I was so mad about this. I was already

Extra Life 2019!

Howdy howdy GDC!  It's been a minute since I've been here but I come with exciting news! This year is my fifth year participating in Extra Life! If you don't know what that is, it is a gamer driven community raising donations for the Children's Miracle Network, benefiting the Children's Hospitals across the US. I have a goal of 250$ this and we just crossed 100$! It's a really great cause to be a part of if you're interested, and there are two wonderful opportunities available for donors!

The Truth (I'm Hideous)

Hi guys! I know I haven't been online in a bit, but I finally have some time to come online in between working four jobs and going through my move to the Unites States.  There is something I just wanted to vent about because it is something that is constantly on my mind, and I feel like writing about it would be therapeutic. There's no better place to do this than on my favourite website.     So, the truth: I never noticed how repulsive I am until recently. In 2016/2017, I wa
