Well, first off, let me say I uploaded this tape February 3, 2015 with a pretty depressing description lol. All within November and December of last year my aunt died, my best friend of 12 years took his own life, I almost lost my car and apartment, and my girlfriend (of which inspired the majority of my past 4 tapes) broke up with me. I was a terrible wreck for a very good while. It was like a novel what I had written for the original description of this about how much I wanted my girl back, how much I missed my friend and my aunt, suicide, stop doing music, and a bunch of other unnecessary stuff. Well I'm doing much better now and after much prayer, meditation, and self analyzing, I am much happier now than I have been in years.
I had a lot of mental demons to work on. In December I only made one instrumental (Tundra Swn) due to me doing a lot of lying, manipulation, and over-thinking. I wasn't myself. I look back at who I was then and i can't believe how dumb I was and can't believe what I'd become. After I was dumped, not even making music was helping me. I got my ass back in school, I bought my membership back to the gym and I'm getting into the best shape I've ever been and getting my skills back in basketball <3, and I just went into a music making overdrive after some time. All of those were greatly therapeutic for me.
As I usually do with the music I release all of these were emotionally inspired. January had a lot of sleepless nights and most of the time I wasn't counting sheep I was making these. It really did help incredibly with me getting over all the lost. I was always so numb to death and people leaving me so in a sense it was great to know I'm not so concrete anymore to that. That was something that bothered me since I was a teenager.
Another individual I looked up to who passed away earlier this year was Monty Oum, an animator at Rooster Teeth Production. Everything he did in life required maximum efficiency. From his animations, to how he walked up the stairs, to the order he pressed buttons on a microwave. I believe everyone should incorporate the way he lived in certain aspects of their lives. What amazed me about him while living the way he did, he still maintained his personality, humor, and who he was and he has heavily impacted me.
Well I'm doing much better with everything. I still miss my friend, my aunt, and my ex, but everything happens for a reason and everything that did happen towards the end of 2014 happened for the better for me now. I hope you enjoy the songs and listen to them in their entirety and my more recent work (this tape was pretty much made in January ^-^) will be released possibly next week with more about me and my music career for the future. A lot of good news :D
R.I.P. to Ricky, Twist, and Ty.
R.I.P. to my beautiful Aunt Gail
Thank You, Monty.
I'm sorry, Lieutenant.
