To The End

Hello there you long jacketed, unraveling sweatered, spirits.

I’m here to tell you that i’m not abandoning Free Lunch or Somewhere Else. But I am changing the dates on them to be more balanced and possible for me.

The only reason a Free Lunch didn’t go out yesterday was because I forgot about it. But, the Somewhere Else was cancelled because my creative brain had nothing to write about. So it’s time for schedule changes, again!

But before that, I want to let everyone who voted for The End of The Road song choice for next Piano song released, it will be on YouTube before the 23rd!

These only effect me, so everyone else will keep posting normally (bittersweetlyirrevocable is like the only one who posts now so just her I guess)

Free Lunch is now on Tuesdays and Fridays.

Somewhere Else is now on Sundays and Wednesdays.

For people who actually read my posts down to the bottom even though this wasn’t a particularly long post, you get a special announcement!

For those of you that care about my musical stuff, I should have a new song out in a week. But this time, it’s Guitar and singing, not just Piano!

Thanks for reading all the way down to the bottom of the post :3

Calamitous Is Now On Soundcloud!

Hey. Remember that song from a while ago I posted on Youtube?

Here it is on Soundcloud for your listening convenience šŸ˜€

Flower Flow on Soundcloud!

This is the first song from E-Quality (our album) to go on to Soundcloud! It’s only piano, but don’t let that disinterest you! At least listen to the first 30 seconds of it xD

Also, the recording came out a little quiet, so turn up the volume all the way up with earbuds to hear properly!

Free Lunch #18

Hello there you post-apocalyptic kitties. Today is Wednesday so therefore it’s time for another Free Lunch. If you don’t know what that means, basically I just type for five minutes, whether it be on a computer or my phone. It’s on a computer this time though, so you’ll have more words to read!

I’ll start at 10:47.

Last night I was working on a new piano song, which I really like. It feels like a video game boss theme to me, but I was thinking I could improve it more before uploading it. I am now in a computer lab and people beside me are reading what I type at this very second. Hello Nana.

I’m listening to Gorillaz’s Demon Days right now, which never fails to be awesome. You can read my Top 10 Favorite Albums here if you want some more awesome albums, or at least in my humble opinion. I just finishedĀ bigĀ Math and ELA tests. Hello Sidney.

I don’t know if my band teacher is here today, and this troubles me, to say the least. Whenever she is not here, we usually get herded off into the gym. Hopefully, she just got here late, and I didn’t see her this morning. This reminds me of what I was just talking about above, so here is a poll!

My time is up over a minute, so that’s the end of this post.

Free Lunch #16

Hello there you carnivals of carnivorous cats. Can I get an illustration on that from anyone xD

(IF YOU ACTUALLY DO SEND IT TO totallyrileysbackpack@gmail.com :D)

Today is Free Lunch #16. If you don’t know what that means, basically I try to type for 5 minutes without stopping. I usually do this on my phone, but i’m on my laptop this time so expect more words.

I’ll start at 9:00.

Right now I am listening to the song Carnival from Gorillaz’s new album, Humanz. It’s one of my favorites from the album (or at least in the top ten), and it’s the way I got my interesting intro for today.

Today I feel like I stayed busy doing pretty much nothing important. In ELA, we worked on our poems and songs, and I’ve already finished both of those, so I just sat around doing math for almost an hour and a half. Though I was pretty lazy and probably only did about a half hour’s worth of work :/

As you may have noticed, I changed the tagline of the site from “jamie come up with a tagline” to “Everything is Relative”. However, I came up with the tagline, not Jamie. If you’re reading this Dad, know that one of your favorite quotes made it to the tagline.

Earlier while I was on the computer doing something close to nothing in ELA, I saw that our PublicizeĀ followers counted as real followers! On the website, for the follower count, instead of what should be 360, it says 379, which were added from Twitter. I was unaware that Twitter followers made an actual impact on my follower count.

In music news, I have been polishing up a few tracks, and you should see a video come out on my channel called “E-Jazz” within the next week or so. When it does, i’ll make a post so that you don’t have to go to the channel itself.

My time is up, and I hope you liked the post. If you did then like the post.

Thanks for reading all the way down to this *relatively* long Free Lunch :3

Musical AspirationsĀ 

Hello there you strings. Tonight I thought I’d tell you a bit about what I’m doing musically and what I plan to do.

At the moment, I play Trumpet, Piano, and Guitar. I’m mediocre at Trumpet, and relatively basic at Piano and Guitar. I’ve made a few songs on the keyboard at my house, including “a mantis shrimp” (named by riseofthechairs), and other currently unreleased tunes.

I started using an app called Yousician, which is very useful. It gives you a free hour or so long Guitar, Piano, Ukelele, and Bass Guitar lesson every 12 hours, which is nice.

Tomorrow me, my brother, and my dad are going to a music store to restring the guitar that was fished out of a closet for me back home. I can play a tiny bit on the Guitar already because at Jamie’s house he taught me the basics.

I have also been unsuccessfully trying to learn how to double tongue notes on the Trumpet. It’s difficult for me ;-;

With Jamie and I using our abilities together, we will be able to use Guitar, Piano, Trumpet, Alto Saxophone, and Snare Drum on the album, along with lots of our fellow band classmates who I hope will help.

 Jamie is much, much better at Piano than me, and together with a Trombonist in our class, we’re composing a song that starts as a Piano solo, and finishes with 4 instruments together at once, called “A Midsummer’s Ice Stream”.

That’s all I can think to write at the moment. I’m kinda tired, so no Dictionary Taboo this time. Because of the before mentioned tiredness, I probably misspelled some stuff, so comment if you see any mistakes.

Free Lunch #11

Hello there you Music Meisters. Today I have for you the 11th Free Lunch, which if you don’t know, is me sitting down for 5 minutes and typing the entire time.

Starting at 1:07.

I have been sick the last few days with what I think is a cold, but i’m not sure. Staying home from school is nice, but I miss all my frens. I just watched the most recent Ryan Higa video which you can look at here if you want to. I listened to the Stan performance from a while ago by Eminem and Elton John ;-;. One of the downsides of being sick is that I can’t go and get a Pokestop, so my streak will end..

I’ve mostly been watching The Walking Dead while i’m home, and some stuff happened..

SPOILER WARNING
DO NOT READ AHEAD

IF YOU HAVEN’T GOTTEN TO SEASON 5, EPISODE 9

Last warning…

.

.

.

Beth and Tyreese are both dead ;-;

Why..

tHEY WERE BOTH SO GREAT…

I don’t even want to think about future main character deaths.

In the time that I wasn’t watching Netflix, I’ve been composing new music, and learning chords! I’ll probably have another Piano song out ready for you all within the next 2 or 3 weeks.

What I have so far sounds ok in my opinion, so I’ll do everything within the limits of the power of creativity to improve it.

It’s now 1:12.
