Retro Ass Kicker 

Sound design for indie video games is a lot of fun but it’s really an ass kicker. It’s actually more involved than mixing a record. People think how difficult can it be. Well it’s just like post production for picture. You have to make the sound go along with what’s going on the screen. But by doing so you have to either have a SFX library and use what you have to blend other sounds together to make new sound. Or you have to go out and record something then use EQ or compression to get the sound you want. Whichever route you take it is still very involved. But it’s a great problem solving session.

Visual trickery

See is truly believing. But for me sometimes I trick myself in feeling like I am part of whatever I am seeing on tv or on the big screen. Is it because I want to believe what’s going on the screen is real? Or am I just believing everything because I want to escape reality as if my mind went on vacation? I guess it’s both. It’s a curse and a blessing. Sometimes I get emotional and really feel the actors pain or joy on screen. I have a broad imagination but when I watch a movie, tv show, or even cartoon I feel like my imagination comes to life. 

Random poetry 

These words came out of me while listening to Ani Di Franco tonight. 

You will always be on my mind. 

I just wish you weren’t so blind.

Fighting for what’s right.

Will I ever hold you in my arms tonight?

You may not understand 

Rest assure you will see how much I care first hand.

We may not know what the future holds.

All I know is that with love there are no blindfolds.

Self trickery 

So driving home for an hour from kung-fu class I thought music was playing the whole time, but when I got home I saw that the radio was off. It was all in my head. You can trick your brain into anything. Just like be successful and happy. But once you trick, the treat is to act upon it. Therefore you will be successful and happy. 🙏🏻✌🏻️💗

Fly like an eagle, but I do hate the eagles, that’s a whole other topic. ✌️😋✌

Anyone ever see that video of the guy in the crazy Adams Family looking costume? The keys on the keyboard are not moving at all. It’s just someone bouncing/reverse juggling if you will. Someone played the piano to the awesome reverse juggling. That sound is sitting on top of the camera mic sound which is ambient noise, such as wind. I have no clue what’s the purpose of the cable next to the keyboard. Also it’s very common to have an instrument or midi cable. On the sides is very unlikely. I’m like the Sheldon Cooper of audio lol. Still did an awesome job though. I like facts. Stuff that’s going to work. But I rather discover them on my own. Trial and error is how you reach true consciousness. When you have self awareness you can handle yourself in any jam. Just remain calm and have plenty of focus. That’s how the musician, editor, audio mixer, pianist, and reverse juggler received so many likes. It’s because they just said hey let’s do this. And they naturally did it. So natural that it was just an eagle learning how to fly. Because once you fly you then soar. Without one you couldn’t have the other. It’s all balance…do you get my slogan? Everything has balance? Do you get it now ?  It’s all balance. I couldn’t it do it without you but let me be the coach. My job is to listen. Give some insight and push each other to make some great. Just let me do my thing and make it great. Rome was not built in a day. 

  

Kung-Fu 

life is energy, life is yin and yang, balance, and yet oneness. Life is Kung fu. Life is music. But if you listen to Kung fu music while on a daily basis and peace a martial art. You sort of get an understand how, “where the energy flows, the attention goes.” A quote by James Redfield. That’s also Kung-Fu. Music is life. It’s all energy. It’s one giant circle. But you to move smoothly like the element of water. Solidness of the wood. And then there’s the rest. Lol But when you become a Sifu therefore you reach your highest consciousness. You’re the wiseone. But you’re the master. That’s what Sifu means. Master, then got passed down for the student to become the master. I believe once you have done this , you become teacher. And then once that teacher becomes a master you have reached your highest consciousness now. It’s cycle. But it’s insynch with each other. Right now there’s too much negative. So what needs to happen is that the positive energy needs to gain some momentum and shift a little more so it can balance itself back. People need to stop panicking and start focussing on what to prevent something before it does. Once that energy can do so then there will be more piece and harmony. But if you try to screw with me I will fight back. That’s what Kung-Fu teaches us. We all need some positive energy.  ☺️✌️❤️🙏🏻

The 90s with a touch of rain 

So I was driving home from visiting my aunt and uncle and I had my iPod on shuffle. Something magical happened. It was drizzling all day. As soon as No Rain by Blind Melon came on I swear it started pouring. But the timing was perfect. As soon as the acoustic guitar came in bam the rain came down. It’s so amazing how each life scenario  has a perfect song that is perfect for what’s happening “NOW.”
