New Splatoon Cover! And Other Updates.

Howdy! It has occurred to my busy little brain that I haven't updated my site in *checks last post*...a year?!

Let's catch up, shall we?

2015 was the most stressful year of my life, and it is still kinda dragging on. We uprooted from West Virginia and landed in Pittsburgh. We absolutely love it. But personal stuff (work, family deaths, buying a house, sick pets, dealing with slumlords, etc) have made things a wee bit stressful. I like stress. GOOD stress. It motivates me. But bad, venomous stress has a way of making you feel like you're trapped in carbonite.

I have tried to work on my own music. I dedicated 2016 to finally getting Belmont 2 finished and released by Halloween. Now into the fourth month of the year, and I only have one demo mostly finished. Stress is a hell of a brick wall.

But I have found that my favorite way to bury my stress is to mindlessly drown it in INK. I have played a lot of Splatoon. A lot. And when the latest Dwelling of Duels Brevity Month came up, I figured it would be a good excuse to record a quick cover of "Now or Never!" from the Splatoon soundtrack. Check it!

So that's my belated 2015 update in a small nutshell. I still worked on a good bit of music and collaborations. Check out my Discography section for a full list of everything that I have recorded. And as always, I'm updating stuff via twitter (@megabeardo) more than anywhere else.

Will I finish Belmont 2? I really don't know. Most of the time, I don't have the energy to work on it, which sucks. It will be six tracks, so a swift kick compared to the first record's 70+ minutes. Just finding enough time in my limited free time to 100% dedicate my brain for creating stuff is very difficult these days. I'm doing everything in my power to better the situation (finding a new job is my #1 priority right now). So hopefully, my next update will be a little more cheerful :)
