I like the melody, the build-up, beat and atmosphere, but somehow the instruments all seem a bit sharp. There are times (the first session in particular) where the guitar sounded almost like bagpipes, but it sounds better in the next part, and the dreamy phase after that is a pretty pompous touch. Still, might want to dim down the highest pitches a bit though, there too; keep it easier on the ears. That dreamy part... seemed like an optimal place to end it as well, but instead it keeps going a bit longer; moving back to the previous melody/style a bit. Not that I don't enjoy the music, but at that point it seemed like it could just as well have faded out, looped, or moved onto something different - maybe build-up even further? Anyhow, it's a good track, but feels it could use a bit more polishing to me. Keep it going!
Well that was random but entertaining. :) Somehow stumbled upon this series of podcasts, and holy shit there's a lot of them to go through! Content-wise it does feel a bit devoid of any particular purpose or direction, but it stays entertaining so maybe that's all that matters. Congrats on the 3 years! And looks like you're still going strong.
Haha yea consider it a variety show about animation and you'll snuggle into it like a pile of dirty laundry (= Thanks for listening! Hope to see you in the comments more
Hah, didn't notice you sounding like an angry femrobot feeding off of a teleprompter last time, but does sound smoother now! :) A leisurely pace, and though not entirely chronological it's easy to step between topics. Maybe a bit much autotune at times though - if that is the filter/effect used. It fits in well with certain parts, like vivid dream speech, but sometimes distorts to the point it's hard to hear what's being said, and seems a bit out of character. First time it was used I thought it'd be for certain people, like your mother when she was on the phone, but as it goes on it seems it's noticeable pretty much at all times when you change vocal pitch? Or is it always intentional when it's noticeable? Did you have any of that on the last one I wonder (if so I really didn't notice it then)?
Appreciate the milder background music, and well-timed how it kicks in right around the mod count. Still thought it was a bit high at first. Impression faded after a while though, so maybe it wasn't... or levels even out.
Plenty of interesting topics in this - the window punching chronicles in particular, though pretty disturbing dream! Sorry to hear about your dad too, seems like that'd take more than a year to really process. Overall an easily listened to and engaging episode. Thanks for the shout out too!
Actually, the autotune was sort of emphasizing the silliness in whatever I was saying. Although perhaps I'll try different autotunes for different characters, lol. Thanks for the review!
Another good podcast! About those health issues: have you tried cutting out gluten? If you search for that + leaky gut you'll find a ton of info. I had somewhat similar issues a long time, but finally cut that out of my diet and got way better. Hope that stuff works out either way though! Good news overall, and looking forward to the new game... if it's not already out as I type this.
I've cut out gluten for 6 years, it's a major trigger. This is an old podcast but the update currently is, im waiting for test results from the specialist, may be Celiac's Disease not sure yet. Even though i've cut gluten out of my diet the symptoms are still around. The damage is already done. Thank you though, it does help not eating gluten.
So much appreciation with this one, for people, the community; everything!! :D Great way to start the New Year! Though man that's a pretty late recording time... or... early, depending on if the day's just starting or ending. :) Anyway, great podcast. Easy to listen to, and packed with positivity.
Nice track! Has orchestral tones, and airy ambience, marching drums, rolling waves, and for a short moment that pirate feeling as well, seems to go through the whole spectrum of sounds of the sea. Easy on the ears, yet with plenty of pace too. Nice piece!
Many thanks, Cyberdevil! I'm a little surprised at the overall popularity of the track, but it does seem to possess that certain je ne sais quoi. Basically, it's one of those tracks that started out trying to be one thing, then transformed itself into something else entirely. In fact, most of the instrument samples I started out with ended up being scrapped and replaced over the duration of the project. Kind of like how a really good story almost writes itself, you know?
This track definitely had a mind of its own, and I could hardly be happier with the end result. I'm glad that you enjoy the music, and I really appreciate that you took the time to leave a review. A toast to your good health, matey!
Sounds like an almost too short stretch of time to fully find yourself and fix things up in, but good to hear you're getting there; things are looking up! Inspiring talk. Hopefully leads some other strays the right way. So easy to lose your direction; sense of purpose.
Seems this may be the realest of all these real talks. Since it was posted a while ago I hope you're well on your towards a brighter future now? At least mentally. The mindset means so much. It's your perspective of the world that shapes it, and since your mind's your own you can really make it anything you want it to be. You have the freedom to perceive the world in it's best light, even if it often feels like a darkening dystopia. Don't feel like your a burden to others, but be appreciative, and return the favor as well as you can. There's nothing as heavy as guilt. Like I learned via One Piece: you can't do everything yourself: find good friends to confide in (as it seems you have) and grow stronger together.
Feels like the people below have a bit more concrete advice on offer though, my advice usually seem to turn into somewhat generic quotes on self-improvement. :) Also, as has been said money's just a means to reach your dreams. Seems like you're already doing what you love doing, you just need to find... confidence? Well, I don't know what it is you need to find exactly, but hope you find it. That search sometimes seems to be what life's all about. Good luck. And thanks for the reflective podcast, makes you think a bit too, about what's really important. As In: what is it, really? Not so easy to answer without just referencing the answers of others...
Yep it certainly was. Thank you :) I'm much better since last year.
A really smooth tune! Takes a while to pick up, but when it does it really takes you along for the ride. Great rhythm, plenty of variation, and an energy that just builds and builds and builds. Great stuff.
Bit sharp sounds sometimes, but pretty catchy otherwise! Not that bad. Could use a more steady melody, and mastering, but good start.
