    This is the 2020 album with actual song titles, a few song changes/additions and new mixes. Just putting that out there before someone gets super excited and disappointed.

    I think the mix changes are mostly good ones, but I can’t say this is anything super exciting for me personally. Seems like the earlier version of the album is at least hidden on streaming now

    Still working my way through Persona 3 Reload but man, this game looks like what I’ve dreamed of their team making. Them sanding the rough edges of their gameplay loop and switching up the setting is very exciting news to me! The art is beautiful yet again, and the UI is flashier than ever

    I thought the subversive marketing and such for the original movie(s) was very inventive (at least for the time) but I can't say that this trailer did much for me. It kind of feels like they made Deadpool into 'just another Marvel movie'. Down to the cynical use of a 80s/90s hit in the trailer to cut some wacky over-the-top action clips to.

    Maybe with a good chunk of all media having gone so meta, fourth wall breaking and overtly referential since the first Deadpool it makes the whole gimmick of the character feel very.. expected?

    I’ve been finishing up some demos, and I finally got into the swing of recording myself by my lonesome. It’s an interesting way to record as I’ve gotten so used to recording with someone else present. Something that I had to learn is to record my own takes like I would anyone elses: just keep working on and doing retakes. I do have a perfectionist streak that sometimes really gets into the way of even recording anything.

    Our Finnish/American duo released the first single that we've recorded in person. We started out in a reddit post and have been working on stuff slowly and steadily ever since. Much like in our previous efforts, we got the help from my incredibly talented friend Markku Pyymäki on the visuals.

    This track is once again a bit of a reinvention of our sound, with its minimalistic instrumentation and blown out vocals. Thank you for listening and I'd love to hear what you thought about it!

    I had a real rut of a year creatively, but I'm happy to report that I've gotten back into it! My solo project progressing in a steady pace and we got a new Noise Job track and video coming out next friday. This time we venture into an ethereal, blown out yet somehow organic sound.

    For anyone feeling stuck, just take your time and be easy on yourself. The time to create will come again.

    I adored Persona 4 Golden, played both versions of 5 and bounced off the original release of P3 Portable at some point. I feel like I'm very ready for this remake of three though, I really liked the setting and vibe of the game from what I played.

    It's gonna be on Game Pass day 1, but I think I'm just gonna grab it on Steam to mostly play on the deck.

    For the song and opening itself, it's great. Just like all the other ones!

    I’d be super grateful for Tinykin and/or Hi-fi rush. I smile every time I hear the title read of ”Puzzle Bobble Everybubble” when booting up. My ’start the weekend’ game that always hits the spot!

    If someone could explain Gala in a less of a 'marketing speak' way, I'd appreciate. From face value I feel like anyone trying to find a way for the artists to make any acceptable amount of compensation is fighting the good fight.

    That being said I love Earl but these track previews didn't get me hype enough to sign onto another service.
