Firstly, I just put out a new episode of Talking Real BUT it's a LIVE episode recording, so I did it live and people asked me questions, plus I interviewed @ShadowCat5150 who made my profile pic/icon, and we've worked on songs together! Check out both versions!

Yes, I just released two new singles under my side project, Piercing Lazer, as most of you know that for the Necromancer Theme/Simple Sight song in Castle Crashers. One is Rock, one is Symphonic Metal. Take your pick. Also, life updates below.
Rock Single: "Homeless"
The first single I already released on BandCamp, but now it's on Itunes and other online stores as well. This is one of my favorite songs I've ever made, I originally started working on in 2014. It's the newest single from the next album, The Other Side Chronicles, which is a deluxe version of The Other Side EP with a couple tracks added, that being a new one, and me singing all of the songs.
That'll eventually come to newgrounds within the week, after I let the other new single from another album set for a bit. Speaking of which...
Symphonic Metal Single: "Trickster's Ambition"
Another new Piercing Lazer single, from a different album, called Trickster's Ambition, is the next single from the Eyes of Purgatory Vol. 1 album (yes, not an EP anymore). I released an instrumental version too, check it out? It's actually a remake of a song I made 6 years ago for a popular youtuber named Fiery Joker/Josh Scorcher. Figured he could use a new version of the old theme. Another one of what I consider my best pieces of work.
It's on BandCamp, and given my current situation with the scammers who own this complex, buying either version would help me a lot. They're also coming to Itunes and other online stores soon.

Also on my youtube channel if that's your jam.
So, about those scammers. I'm back to pizza delivery with my new job, and my roommate is about to get promoted to manager making a lot more than he is now (that will help a lot whenever that goes into effect in a month hopefully less), but we had to call the Better Business Bureau on our apartment complex owners because they were trying to overcharge us $200+ more monthly so they owe him a lot of money.
They owe me a bit too though. Also, they tried to say the lease agreement was lost but as soon as the Bureau contacted them, suddenly they say "oh look here it is!" like the scummy scums they are. So, hopefully this gets worked out, but I was going to almost work 11 days straight if it wasn't for my day off. Also tonight was a really bad night for reasons I don't even want to say. Flat tire while delivering a pizza, messing up, etc. I'm just stressed.
I can't wait for things to get better, I really want to move past this stupid part of my life, to be quite frank. That's why both albums are on a delay though, because i need things to stabilize so I can start saving more money to hire a vocalist on some of the songs I can't sing parts of (I designed them for a female singer of certain range). That's basically it, still working on other things.
PS: I think in the soon future, that special collab project will be finished, it's finally moving again.
