So close

2014-02-04 22:19:36 by GreaserOfficial

I'm so close to finishing my next art submission. I've been putting a lot of time into this one because it's going to be the album art of my first album. I honestly only need another hour of work to finish it, but I'm too tired. That's frustrating. But anyways, keep an out for my new submission tomorrow, because I'd love the feedback. Love the few supporters I have!

Until next time


Scout Me Brah

Submitted my first piece of art here on Newgrounds. So you should totally scout me for the art portal if you can. Or at least check out my submission here.

I've always wanted to do all of these things on Newgrounds since I was in elementary school; making music for people to listen to and art for people to enjoy. I never had the tools to do all of these things until somewhat recently. Super fun to be part of the community finally.

Hope to bring some high quality art, in general to Newgrounds pretty soon here!

Until next time.  



So I feel like I need to take a break from producing music for a little while, even if it's only for a week or so. I've been pumping out a new song every day for the past week or two. I feel like my music would sound better if I took a break for a while. I feel like that's going to be hard, considering how fun the past week has been, and I'm not sure how I'll pass the time.. Maybe listen to more new stuff on Newgrounds and become more involved with the community.. Anyways, It's been awesome seeing people enjoy music that I make and I hope to bring some new, high quality music to Newgrounds by mid-January, or sometime around then. If you haven't checked out my music, be sure to mosey on over to that audio tab on my page and listen to my songs; also, be sure to rate and review anything you listen to! (:

On a side-note..

If anybody is looking for a soundtrack to go with a game you're developing, feel free to contact me if you're interested in any of my music. I'd love to help out.

Until next time!

 



I feel like it's a dick move to leave a bad rating with no written review at all. If I'm doing something wrong, I'd love to know what exactly I'm doing wrong. Maybe this only gets to me because I'm still a newcomer to the audio portal and rarely get ratings and reviews as it is -- But still. I feel as though people should give some explanation to a, say 2/5. Although I suppose that's how artists grow; learning to ignore the BS ratings. #Frustrationbrooo This also may be getting to me just because I'm sort of blind in creating music so far - I've have had only 2 people kind enough to leave their opinion and give me ways to improve. So, I'm not too sure on what the people want from me. I just make songs that I like and use sounds that I myself think are cool. So I suppose none of this really matters. Typing this out is just a way for me to cope with it I guess.

So that's my PSA for the day. Feedback and your thoughts on this topic is always appreciated! (:

Thankful for any supporters!



Isn't it interesting to think about how our brains work? We're so close to our brains at all times, yet we know so little about it. I'm not sure how clear my ideas will come through my attempt at typing them, but I will try.

It just gets to me sometimes; thinking the deepest thoughts imaginable, only when I'm alone in my room at night. It's frightening sometimes, even. Why are we here? No one has the slightest bit of evidence to prove why we're here. Sure, you can lean on religion for an answer, and that's completely okay; but religion can't have ALL of the answers, can it? Even if religion could have ALL of the answers, I don't think I'd want to know all of the answers in life. To know your ultimate fate, to me, can be more frightening than not knowing. What scares you more: Eternal death or eternal life? Whoa. That's a heavy thing to think about. Eternal life is incomprehensive. To think that if I die, and go to "Heaven" or "Hell", there's nothing beyond that ultimate fate; that scares me. The end scares me. However, never being able to reach the end scares me just as much. But there's nothing you can do about it, so there's no real shocking fright it delivers. It's more of a calm depression. It's like a dream I had somewhat recently..

I dreamt my hometown was under a nuclear attack. I remember feeling complete and utter terror in the beginning of my dream. Then, after seeing the bright flash of the A-Bomb, I felt no terror; only sadness. Depression.

I had another dream. This dream is more recent; a few days ago..

I dreamt that my family was dying; via murder of unknown people. Not my immediate family though. I dreamt my uncle was shot and killed, which was devastating to me in the dream. I cannot see why it got to me so much, seeing as I'm not really too close to my uncle, or have much emotional attachment to him. I also dreamt my sister was kidnapped, which made a bit of sense of my sadness. Although when my sister was kidnapped in my dream, there was a different feeling; more anger and fear.

What is fear? What is depression? I believe that fear is an emotion we feel to save ourselves or others; to show us our limits. It's an emotion that shows we have a chance for survival; or as long as we think we do. I think that depression is more helpnessness. Knowing that you can't change a damn thing, no matter what you do and how hard you try. It's when you know it's game over; or as long as you think it's game over. 

When I'm thinking about the deep meaning of life, I get scared, because I fear that we live for nothing. When I feel I've reached a conclusion, or am nearing a conclusion, I get depressed, because I start to believe that we live for nothing. Whatever you believe, your time on Earth doesn't mean much. It'll all be left behind eventually. You may go to a Heaven or a Hell. Your soul may be obliterated into nothingness. You may be reincarnated. Or you may just cease to exist in any way, shape, or form. Whatever the belief, your current life here on Earth, generally speaking, means close to nothing. So what keeps us going? I think we all know some variation of the truth of life; deep down within ourselves. However, we often refuse to believe it, as a way to cope with the fear or depression thinking may bring.

The truth about life really sucks. I don't claim to know everything, or close to anything. This is just what I believe. Whether you agree with me or not, you can't deny, it's a fascinating thing to think about.

 

Thank you for reading. It's almost 2 AM, so I hope my thoughts make sense.

Just think about it.

If you find yourself listening to any of my songs, giving them a rating is very appreciated. I'm just starting out, sharing my content with people, so I have nothing to improve on really; no real feedback to consider. So please, if you would be so kind as to critique my content as harshly as possible, that would be great.

Thanks! Love any supporters I may have!
