I have turned into a reblogging machine. My hope is that everyone looking or following likes Pokémon, video games, comics, and sexy naked people. I go through moods of reblogging and it can get a bit NSFW.
imagine your icon to the upper left of everything you post on Tumblr…
I remember when Biggie died. I didn’t know a lot about him, but, my babysitter was super upset. And eventually there was a special concert aired on BET that I watched with my sitter’s family.
In 5th grade, I was arguing with classmates about how tight Busta was.
In my 6th grade music class I wrote a paper about the history of rap.
In high school, I desperately wanted to be a hip-hop artist, though I never tried my hardest because I really didn’t think I’d get there. I focused more on trying to start a rock band and hoped I’d be able to pick the hip-hop back up later. But I was writing all the time in high school. Notebooks full of lyrics. And they were mostly awful. Rock never worked.
When I was 16, a kindly Bulgarian man told me my flow was bad and I was completely off-beat. And he was right. So, I worked on it. And while I worked on that, I tried this electro thing. Kept writing. Electro never worked, but it got closer than rock.
Eventually, around 20, I had to get a job and start paying bills. Stopped having any free time. Stopped writing.
Over the last six months, my desire to go back to hip-hop is strong. The music side has never been my strongest suit; words has always been my forte. But, I don’t need something super complex to record over, I’ve decided. Just something to get me back into writing.
Last time I’ll ask before giving up, promise
I need impetus to start writing again. All I ask is for someone to offer a recommendation. Original post requesting requests can be found here. Links to what I have written previously can be found here at the new blog I’ve started to house any further writing, Sixty’s Thoughts & Ramblings.
Drop me an ask, preferably on the Sixty’s Thoughts & Ramblings blog. Follow, read, critique. Help me out.
XD So, not to be conceited, but a couple times now I’ve been listening to Function Creep tracks going, “Oh, yeah, I provided a little piece of dialogue or something for this.” Just, like, a line or two. Not even singing, just… talking. Oh, good times.
Feelin’ conceited again and I felt like sharing this delightful track called “Your Dark Princess”. Initially, it was kind of meant to be a demo version until I could find a lady kind enough to sing the majority of it for me. Unfortunately… this is kind of the de facto final version, though.
Oh, one of my numerous, short-lived music projects. Heaven Loss.
Games this week:
Games! I honestly don’t know how many more of these I’ll do, as I’m getting tired of it. Once every week since May last year, I’m just getting tired of writing for myself, I guess.
So, mostly, I powered throughAssassin’s Creed: Brotherhood. Because I’m tired of playing it but I can’t stand to leave a game unfinished. But, mission accomplished, I finished the story. And now it’s back on the shelf and I may never touch it again nor playAssassin’s Creed: Revelations. I just don’t care. I was talking to a friend about this, and I think the reason I’m dislikingBrotherhoodso much is because it’s so much likeAssassin’s Creed II, which got a lot of leeway because it was the sequel to a game that had a lot of problems. And, as that sort of a sequel, it really shined and impressed. But, the sequel to that is more of the same, and all of the issues really shine through. I’ve spoken of these issues previously, but, a short recap: the controls are wonky and straight don’t work some times. It’s especially frustrating near the end of the game. I don’t know if this is because I was just sick of it or if it became particularly problematic, but, I was very frustrated. The Leonardo missions are not fun. I played the warship one and the horse-drawn cannon and that was enough for me to know I wanted to avoid those missions. Both involved a shooting mechanic that was imprecise and slow. No fun. The Brotherhood mechanic is still awesome fun, but, obviously not enough to hold the game together. The writing is still fun, Ezio is great and seeing him grow throughoutAssassin’s Creed IIandAssassin’s Creed: Brotherhoodwas great. The Desmond stuff is still a little weak, and I’m not enjoying the complete cliffhanger endings thatthese two games have had. And I’ll probably never know how Ezio’s story ends, because I highly doubt I will ever buy and playAssassin’s Creed: Revelations. Here’s hoping thatAssassin’s Creed IIIfixes some problems and goes back to being fun.
I played a little DJ Hero 2, just to remind myself how much fun it is. I want to see if I can find a soundtrack for that game. I would love to have some of those mash-ups just in my music library. But, I only played four or five mixes, not a lot at all.
I didn’t play much else. Pokémon, of course. I hit a wall needing to train up a Psychic-type, but, I’m truckin’ along. I think I beat some trainers out of order, though. I beat Chuck and Jasmine, who were about ten levels over me, but now I’m outside Mt. Mortar and the trainers all have Pokémon ten levels under me. Whoops. Anyway, team currently consists of Drowzee (no nickname, didn’t think I’d be using him on my team), Dee (Bayleef), Bob (Vulpix), Olette (Noctowl), Sean (Flaafy), and Glen (Quagsire).
I don’t think I’m going to continue Final Fantasy X-2. I haven’t played it in weeks and I have zero desire to go back to it. It’s just not hooking me in. Maybe it’s been too long since I played Final Fantasy X, but… just no interest.
And, that’s it! Hopefully next week? I mean this in all seriousness, if anyone reads these and enjoys them, sound off in the comments or send an anon message or something. Something to let me know people legit enjoy these and would like for me to continue, okay?
