Been a long time...

Posted by Achilleuss - April 25th, 2019

It's been a long time since I've uploaded anything, though I have had many ideas. I've been through a lot lately. I actually bought a used iMac to start doing this again last year, and a week later my neighbor broke it when she was drunk along with my mic. I have a gaming headset, so I may give that a shot with a technique that LTT put up recently on youtube about a Mac VM that could work.

I have had a track I've wanted to record that the lyrics have been ready for almost 6 years now, I've just lacked sufficient motivation to get back in to doing this. It certainly isn't very rewarding monetarily, yet I know that it does touch some people.

The most creative times in my life has always been when I wasn't distracted by constant work--for the most part. On one occaision, work made me angry enough that I wrote a few bars about how much I hated it, but 99% of the time I just want to go home and veg and have a drink. My drinking has continued still and since my last upload I've had maybe 4 weeks of sober nights only because I ran out of money for the liquor store. I tend to spend my time gaming, usually by myself with the exception of some group activities, while listening to the news on another screen.

I could have ripped on Trump or Clinton equally back in 2016, but what would have been the point? From a policy perspective, they're both more or less the same as Obama and Bush on a global good/bad scale. And monetarily my life isn't as bad as it used to be when I was at fast food, now I'm in IT where I should have been to start with. I suppose that now the case is such that I have to find better motivation, because the old motivators don't have quite the same sting as they used to on my psyche. I've been through a lot and sure I could write quite a bit about my past, but honestly my published lyrics have always had a goal in mind, as muddled as it may have been by circumstance and bias.

I suppose my point is that I may not ever upload another track to youtube or newgrounds, and I might do one next week--but don't count on either.
