This is such a first world problem but I’m already at that stage of my semester where, when I finally have free time, there are a million and one things I’d like to do, then I end up doing none of them.
MAGfest registration is open, and there are still rooms at the Gaylord National hotel.
and I’m trying to build a crew. It’s still 6 months away, but I want a room in the main hotel and at least 8 people (because registration is cheaper) to go with.
It’s probably going to my just my brother, his girlfriend, and myself, but I would really love to roll in squad deep with a whole chiptune crew/artist crew and tear apart the chip space and vendor room.
I go every single summer to visit family, but I feel like it gets better and better every time.
The new Ripley’s Aquarium in Toronto is so impressive, but there were way too many people there. Also I found out the Art Gallery of Ontario is free on Wednesdays from 6-8, I definitely recommend going if you’re in town on a Wednesday!
I didn’t find any chiptune shows to play, but I did end up at a free show that my cousin’s work friend was playing. Also, my girlfriend and I had a super local and non-touristy visit in Quebec City. Good times!
Look, I might not be the best at producing chiptunes, but at the very least, I did in fact build my entire setup as it exists now from used parts. And I’m proud as fuck of that fact. Bottom line is, I have to stop worrying about whatever “competition” I might have and remember how far I’ve come.
It’s weird how there was a point in my life when I was basically living my life on this site, and now I’m never on here, yet I somehow remind myself of this blog’s existence every day one way or another.
I’d like to keep this updated for personal reasons, mostly because it helps me stay organized by posting stuff like this every now and again.
I like to make bullet-point lists, so here’s some stuff I’ve been up to while not posting on here:
Working on chiptunes
Fixing and refixing my Game Boy
Not working on chiptunes
Attending chiptune concerts
Playing A LOT of Monster Hunter
Like, seriously, way too many hours of Monster Hunter
Forming a wish list for a computer I’d like to build
Working so I can eventually purchase parts for said computer
I saw How to Train Your Dragon 2 today, I highly recommend it
Tinkering around with every piece of technology I get my hands on
None of this is interesting
Alright, that about covers it.
I’ll hopefully be back in less than two months. I don’t know. We’ll see.
Over the next month I’m working on a project that is basically those two things put together. And I’m super stoked to share it with you all. It’ll be up on my LOGarhythm bandcamp page for free, and I want some opinions!
