Having Lived (from To The Moon)

Hello there you minions boi’s!

Today, the sequel to one of my favorite games “To The Moon” came out, so in celebration, I decided to record a piano cover of one of my favorite songs from it. I’ve already bought the next game, I hope it’s just as good!

Here’s the song:

Free Lunch #59 (mostly music edition)

Hello there you extremely difficult pieces of music. Are you able to guess what this Free Lunch will be about? That’s right, music! If you don’t know what Free Lunch is, I just get on either my phone or laptop and write for five minutes and try to form coherent thoughts.

Starting at 8:29.

All of the things coming up that i’m excited about involve music in some way or another. Tomorrow i’m writing a review of my music tastes based on my Spotify Top 100 of 2017. My band concert is next week, and I need to practice a ton. Finding Paradise comes out December 14th, the same day as my rendition of Having Lived from the previous game in the series. I’m going to try and play Megalovania in an ensemble with my friends in the spring. I’ve got music on the brain.

Aside from that, I recently read a post by Legendary randomness that got me into a new band, King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard. I really like their album “Paper Maché Dream Balloon”, and aside from that a few songs from other albums. I’m not the biggest fan of most of their music, but they really struck a chord with me on some of it.

Outside of musical stuff, I also had my Math Practice End of Course today, and while I was able to do okay, I think I need to look up how to do some stuff online before the real one.

That’s all the time I have for today, thanks for reading all the way to the bottom of the post!

Baiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii

Free Lunch

Free Lunch #57

Hello there you moving castles. Today is Friday, and that means it’s time for another Free Lunch! If you don’t know what a Free Lunch is, I just get on either my laptop or phone and type for five minutes without stopping about my life and related subjects.

Starting at 10:19.

How was your Thanksgiving? Mine went pretty well; I had all the usual Thanksgiving foods, as well as a really good desert thing that my mom, brother, and sister made. I’m sorry for everyone reading that isn’t an American for two posts out of the last three that have relatable American things ssc. (Thanksgiving and  Saving Net Neutrality).

Recently I’ve really been trying to finish Having Lived, and as of now I only have a few more measures to memorize, and then I’ll be set. It was recently announced that the sequel to the original game, Finding Paradise, will be coming out December 14th. So I’ll try to release the song on that date!

I don’t really have any other news right now, other than that there won’t be a book review this week due to lots of schoolwork. Most of it isn’t even the schoolwork’s fault, just me managing my time poorly and not allocating time to read the book I chose. The review will definitely be out next Saturday though, so you can look forward to that! I also had this idea of making a seasonal series. I could make some kind of post that I only make in a certain season. That way I could have some crazy time to prepare each post to make it perfect. If you guys have any suggestions for series that might take a long time to produce, leave them in the comments below! Any ideas at all are greatly appreciated!

My time is up, so thanks for reading all the way down to the bottom of this post! If you will; fill out this short survey?

I’ll see you next Tuesday for Free Lunch #58!

Baiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii

Free Lunch

Free Lunch #55

Hello there you gigabits. It’s Friday, so that means it’s time for another Free Lunch! If you don’t know what that is, I just get on either my laptop or phone, try to write for five minutes without taking any breaks, and attempt to write a legible post.  Starting at 10:11.

Let’s do this in chronological order, but with my apology for not posting first. I’m sorry for not posting this week, I really was flooded with school work that I was supposed to have finished by today. Luckily, I finished all of it, but because I was working on the work at home, I didn’t have time to write any posts over the course of the week. I also haven’t finished tomorrow’s book review yet, but my plan is to finish writing it at the Library tomorrow.

I’ve been trying to write a Guitar solo for a few weeks in my off-time as well, and I’m having some trouble with the solo doing cool solo things but then coherently returning to the original melody. I was also thinking I could make some cool kinda jazz piano-guitar combo later? Another cool music thing coming soon; I’m going to try and release my Having Lived cover from the game To The Moon on the day its sequel comes out. Hopefully, I do the song justice.

I also just watched the first three episodes of Gravity Falls, because it’s been recommended to me by so many friends. Watching it, I can already tell the collaboration with Rick and Morty in Season 4 is going to be awesome. If there isn’t a collab after all that hinting in the 4th season teaser I’m really going to be disappointed.

That’s about all I have left to say for right now, so I’m just going to write this filler sentence as long as possible until I get to 10:16.

Free Lunch #54

Hello there you rainbow monkeys. Today is Tuesday which means it’s time for another Free Lunch. If you don’t know what that is, I just get on either my phone or laptop and type for 5 minutes legibly without stopping.  I’m on my laptop this time so it will probably be a little bit longer than last time.

Starting at 9:07.

In the last few days I haven’t really been working on much, save an interesting intro I made for Megalovania and a guitar riff. I also realized that I need to buckle down and finish learning Having Lived if I want to be able to release it the day that Finding Paradise comes out. It’s supposed to be near the end of the year, so I have quite a bit of time, but all the time in the world makes no difference if I don’t practice. I’m going to ask my talented friend to help me with it tomorrow morning.

If you didn’t know, a remix of a song I made came out yesterday and you can listen to it here, thanks in advance.

Right now I’m listening to a CD titled Romantic Symphonies. I got it at Goodwill and it’s a pretty good soundtrack for studying and writing stuff.

In other news, I’m really excited because it seems like I’m going to get a Nintendo Switch for Christmas from the same friend who I’m going to request help from tomorrow. This is big because Nintendo Switches are super cool and I’ll get to play Super Mario Odyssey.

Be on the lookout for a post by Jamie in the next few days, a review of Thor Ragnarok. I don’t really have much else to say and I still have a whole minute left to type. I was reading an interesting limerick on Twitter earlier today, I’ll link it here so you can read it and I don’t have to keep writing.

Thanks for reading all the way down to the bottom of this Free Lunch, I’ll see you in the next one!

Free Lunch #51

Hello there you frunches. It’s Tuesday which means it’s time for another Free Lunch. If you don’t know what that means, I just get on either my laptop or phone (today it’s laptop because my phone bill isn’t paid) and type for 5 minutes without stopping about my life and stuff.

Starting at 5:48.

I got to do something really cool this weekend! I wanted to tell you in a sidenote on the book review this Saturday, but I decided to save it for the Free Lunch because I probably won’t have anything to talk about now except that and a few other things.

The thing I got to do that was really cool was play a Steinway piano! My library has a Steinway that’s just sitting there on the second floor, but it always has a bar locking it from being played while the keys cover is down. But on Saturday, the piano was open for two performers. There was an event going on in the library that day, and so they opened the piano so that some people could play it while the event was happening. The first woman came and played some classical music, which was pretty cool, and after she left, I played around with the piano a bit with my brother, because neither of us had played one before. A little bit after that, two guys came and played jazz with the piano and a saxophone that one brought. They played some really cool tunes and I recorded some on my phone, which I might put up later.

I also released a piano song on Sunday that you should listen to! Thanks in advance!

This Free Lunch was kinda short for one on the laptop, sorry.

8532 Piano Song

Hello there you! Today I have that piano song that I mentioned before, and I decided a name all on my own. If you have a minute to spare, I would appreciate it if you gave the song a listen and gave me your feedback!

Thanks for reading and listening in advance!

Free Lunch

Free Lunch #49 (nearly)

Hello there you mellow fellows! I would like to go ahead and apologize for my extended absence from the blog, if I hadn’t have skipped all that time we already would have hit Free Lunch #50. However, I forgot the Friday and Saturday posts and we end up here. Anyways, here’s the usual spiel. It’s Tuesday which means it’s time for another Free Lunch! If you don’t know what that is, I just type for 5 minutes on either my laptop or phone. This time it’s on my laptop because I don’t want to use the data on my phone.

Starting at 5:41.

I’m happy to tell you that a new piano song will come out this Friday for the 50th Free Lunch! This is the song i’ve been working on for a while. In other news, while I was gone I got an amp for my Guitar from my dad and went to see Blade Runner 2049 with him. The amp works great and i’m glad now that I can make an electric guitar sound with my electric guitar. I really liked Blade Runner 2049. I had read online before watching the movie that it was slow, but I didn’t think so at all after watching it. The pacing was done well in my opinion, and the action was great too. Like Legendary randomness said in their review, all the shots were cinematic and the soundtrack was fantastic. The jarring 80’s synths really help to immerse you in the film.

The next post for Top Shelf Book Reviews will be Things Not Seen by Andrew Clements, which will come out this Saturday. I also have a poll for you here, just in case this idea is relevant yet.

I don’t have much time left, so i’ll leave you with this. I tried to play Chopin’s Winter Wind (intro of course) on cups, but it was really out of tune and sounded bad. I uploaded it anyways though, and you can now watch it!

Free Lunch #47 (almost there edition)

Hello there you Pirates of the Pancreas. Today it’s Tuesday which means it’s time for a Free Lunch! If you don’t know what that means, I just type for five minutes on either my laptop or phone trying not to stop.

Starting at 7:08.

The reason there hasn’t been as many good posts recently is because i’ve been pretty swamped in schoolwork. It’s mostly stuff that I should have already finished, but didn’t because I was being lazy. That’s all come back to bite me now as everything is due on Thursday, the last day before fall break. I wouldn’t expect another post from me until Friday for the Free Lunch, sorry.

Anyways on to the usual discussion topics, recently i’ve been working on a couple different ideas for piano songs that could branch off into their own full song. Most of them are about thirty seconds long and are kind of boring, but i’m sure i’ll find one that interests me. On Guitar, i’m practicing my Pentatonic Blues Scale and it’s pretty fun. I think i’m going to try and make my own solo later using that, but not anytime soon. In Trumpet news, in class we have just been working on making sure that we are able to correctly play stuff and comprehend rhythms, so we aren’t practicing any pieces, which is disappointing. I am still working on Megalovania for the Trumpet though, and it’s still a huge challenge… but one day I will conquer it.

I don’t really have much else to say to you, except I started watching a new show today indicated by the Hello There You.

Thanks for reading all the way down to the bottom of this kind of boring post. I promise that this Saturday you’ve got a pretty good book review coming, so hold on for that!

Free Lunch #46 (four more and 7 years ago edition)

Hello there you sentient beings. Today is Friday, which means it’s time for another Free Lunch! If you don’t know what Free Lunch is, I just get either my laptop or phone and type for 5 minutes trying not to stop. It also can’t be nonsensical.

Starting at 8:06.

Recently I have been infactuated with a piano piece called 3 Gymnopedies No. 1. I heard this song through a Spotify Classical Piano Essentials playlist, and I immediately knew it needed to be in my Sentimental Piano playlist. It also inspired the beginning of a new playlist, Ambient Piano. I’m going to also be learning this song after I finish Having Lived. I’ve got the beginning chords down already, but I shouldn’t focus too much on it before I finish the piece i’m already working on.

In other news, I have mostly left behind Pokemon Go. Unfortunately i’m not going to be able to get an Raikou because I didn’t try hard enough and now they’ll be gone. But next we have Entei right? Maybe I can get that one then. If you have no idea what i’m talking about I apologize, just skip to the next paragraph. But while we’re on the subject of Pokemon Go, let’s talk about why the game has gotten less and less interesting to me. After a few weeks without any new Pokemon or anything exciting (I haven’t been able to participate in raids in my city because of school and stuff), the game gets pretty dull pretty fast. I should probably talk about something else now or i’ll run out of time without having made another paragraph.

Welcome to the next paragraph, we are glad to have you here! This one is going to be about how a new episode of Undertale No Food will be coming soon! If this paragraph wasn’t long enough for you and you skipped the last one, why don’t you go and read the last one anyways 😀
