The doomsday rapper. Yeah? Maybe it will become clearer as I get more tracks finished and uploaded.

If you can help me at all with my recordings to make them sound cleaner, I would definitely appreciate it. I live in a small efficiency apartment(hence the bad echo) and don't make enough money to pay for legit studio time, but I do have legit equipment. I run off a Macbook and a Behringer C-3 mic with a Xenyx302 USB mixer board using Logic Pro. Since they updated Logic, all my settings are gone and all the buttons moved around, I don't even know where the autopunch button is anymore! I have not been too happy with Apple lately but it's the only software I can reasonably understand that can put out relatively high quality. GarageBand just doesn't cut it with the junky compressor it has.
So give my latest track a listen and if you have any advice please send me a private message. I can't make an album until I can get my production under control and sounding reasonably well and undistorted.
I have a very relevant real-world message that has to be sent with my music, and I need help to accomplish this goal.
Thank you for stopping by.

It pissed me off a long time ago so I quit using it. Maybe someday when I'm in the mood I'll fix it up differently and try again but for now, fuck it. You can keep up with me on youtube and newgrounds. Since I finally got a damn job and apartment I'll be able to put out content again very soon, and with much higher quality then the little experiments and demos I've put out so far.

Hi all! I didn't want to change my first post because it's from 2007 and was so funny, still makes me laugh. But I figured it's beyond time for an update.
As you can see from my uploads, I've been making raps. As you can also see...I've stopped uploading. My macbook air died(RIP MACBOOK!) and Apple wants $1350 to repair a $1000 computer that I bought brand new less then a year before it died. It was even under warranty! And this is coming from a corporation that has $100 billion in cash just laying around that they aren't doing anything with(more then what the US Treasury has) and they won't even bring it back to the states....guess why? They'd have to pay a 35% corporate tax on it, while we got this Romney guy paying what 13%? Meanwhile the rest of us peasants pay 40% or more and get v& if we don't pay it. Anyway....never buying another Apple.
tl;dr for above: No viable computer to make more music.
That doesn't stop me from writing more tracks though. As of today, I have 3 completed tracks written to beats by T-Free(one of the best artists on NG) and more that are unfinished, but without a microphone or viable computer to edit them on, I'm pretty much stuck for now. So unless I get a lucky donation(doubtful and not requesting them) I have to wait till I build my new computer or can use a friend's computer. If anybody in Oklahoma has a studio-ish setup that I can use, shoot me a message and maybe we can work something out.
I don't think I'll be making any more flash videos. The two I made and the others I didn't finish were really just experiments to learn the software and while fun, it ended up being more of a pain in the ass then it was worth. That, and I would have had to start drawing on a pad to really do what I wanted to and those aren't cheap. I've been writing lyrics for quite a while though, 10+ years. So I'm gonna do what I'm good at, know what I mean? Which is writing. I'm still learning the nuances of rapping my stuff but I expect that with the more experience I have, the current 184 subscribers I have on YouTube will be dwarfed more and more.
Thanks for stopping by my page, and enjoy the content I have to offer.

My own page at Newgrounds! This is pretty sweet, I can't wait to get some good flashes up! :D This last one I submitted didn't take me too long to do, it was just something I thought would be pretty funny. I made it to mock the people at my gaming syndicate that keep telling me that OS X and Apple suck and that Apple is the worst company in the world--bleh, I'm not even gonna get started.
I don'tknow what else to post, it keeps telling me my message is too short rofl. Maybe now it'll accept it. ARGH!! wtf am I supposed to put here...rofl.
Well I got an IT company. I'm working on a pretty sweet project with some HEAVY ajax usage, once it's at least in the RC phase I'll probably go more in to detail. It'll retail at about $150 each. That is, IF I can get it done and stay off newgrounds enough to work on it! xD
Still too short. Hmmm.
I'm sitting at a Denney's right now about to go home as soon as I can get enough typed so I can get my page looking a little nicer.
Bleh! Still didn't work. Anybody seen that movie Crank? It's pretty sweet, I saw it last night. I saw part of it when I was in harrisburg, but I got interrupted and didn't get to finish it. :(
I'm seriously starting to think something is wrong with this message length script. Maybe it's because I'm using Minefield.
*smacks self in face*
I must be dyslexic or something. It was the stupid subject line. /doh
