I just uploaded the last of my unreleased song demos I've been putting up since...May of last year, I think? I wanted to put out at least 90% of them, the ones worth uploading at least. Now that we can put the past behind us, it's time to move ahead. So, what's next? Well, mostly, check out my newest Talking Real podcast in my submissions to see a more detailed look at some of the topics here, minus the first one.
Firstly, I'm going to drop a big announcement this week about my new career choice that I want to pursue, that I think lines up with my core desires of wanting to help people and entertain, and have fun with it, writing stories that impact people. It's not just writing, or acting. I'm going to drop a video/podcast this week, probably filming tomorrow. It will incorporate other things related to that.
Secondly, the next couple weeks, I'm finishing my new hiphop/R&B album which tackles topics such as Depression, Anxiety, mostly stuff regarding the stuff i had to overcome with my past depression and the triggers of it. I just released the new single if you want to support me and buy it, more info here: https://realfaction.newgrounds.com/news/post/1039239 after this album, secret albums I'm working on, more info below.
Pixel Day/Secret New Albums
I finished Pixel Day judging days ago, hoping Tom got the message. I saw a lot of amazing entries, good job guys! After the next album drops, while I'm working on my secret projects regarding my new career path, in collaboration with a good friend of mine, I'll be working on two secret albums (then work more on the new Piercing Lazer album after) I hope to release news about in the next month or two when one is far enough along. They should be done in the Spring, if not before.
AIM + NGADM Contests
The AIM and NGADM contests have been more of a challenge in recent years due to me being responsible of scheduling both, and mostly organizing AIM. After 5 wonderful years, I have to step down from that responsibility to take care of my own life, but I would like to bestow the mantle of Lead Organizer to someone who can manage it this year. It would be ideal to Schedule AIM from April to June, and NGADM going after that.
You have to be an experienced contest organizer, care for the people, and be an experienced musician able to collect the proper judges. Are you up for the challenge? I can't give this to just anyone, but the right person who fits the bill. Message me if interested.
This is the year I wrap up the things I started, and move on to other things. I'm not done with music, but slowing down to pursue what I truly want to do. Music is fun and I'll still do it, but after the Eyes of Purgatory two-part album series, I don't know if I want to do another album for a while, or as quick at least, those never really sell much anyway. Might just be singles.
I really just need a career I want to have a lot of fun with and further my life to make money to support my life and do what I'm most passionate about, and music isn't paying the bills. I still love making music, but there's something more I want that you'll find out this week, very soon. This post might not last long till I post a new one, even. I'll be surprised if anyone reads it all.
Stay tuned, my fellow outcasts.
