Hope you enjoy the new instrumental by yours truly
So I recently seen on Softpedia.com that the boys at Microsoft have updated the windows live essentials, which for those of you who don’t know it’s a pack of rather useful programs such as… Well instead of me telling you just click the name and it’ll take you direct to the Microsoft site for full details.. But anyways in the collection is a video editor and a photo gallery/manager one of the new features they have is that you can now upload your videos direct to vimeo… Now I don’t know about you guys but to me Microsoft ditched youtube (good for you microsoft) and if they invested money into vimeo it means they want to get into the video sharing service in a way so I am tempted at moving my videos to that same site… Right now it’s only a thought but I’ll keep ya posted on any changes such as that.
Had the chance to sit down with the boys known as Trillium Trio and talk about a few things, perhaps a upcoming release and while they were all up for the change (as they’re formerly Blood Lotuz) they said that nothing has been coming to them lately and they have decided to call it quits once and for all… I can understand where they’re coming from once the ideas stop for a while you wonder if it’s worth to continue or not. Well I know these guys are always welcome back if they ever want to write again in the future.
I don’t know if everyone is up on some rather interesting current events but I have a simple question: “What would you do if….?”
So what’s the question you ask ?
“What would you do IF you were judged for a future job by the music on your facebook page ?”
Yes it is that simple, as I will examine a few things myself and yes I will be 100% completely honest with it…
So on my facebook page I have a bunch of bands that I like listed (so congrats you’ll get to know me a bit more)
In no particular order here are a few bands I have listed and for your viewing/listening pleasure I have thrown in some music videos:
So Sick Social Club:
Insane Clown Posse:
Ok so there’s a little bit of the music I listen to, now the music doesn’t affect what I do… I listen to music for entertainment value and to me it’s nothing more than that.. But if your music cost you a job or made you not get a job because they want to pass a law stating that your future employer has the right to ask for your facebook password and can basically judge you on the music you listen to. Now to me I think that’s completely stupid because that’s basically judging me by other people’s actions… There are actually very little artists / bands out there who you can’t pick apart in some way and make someone give bad judgment about you.
Not only that but shit, lets face it… I tossed in two bands that aren’t really controversial or violent (well kinda) and lets face it the BAD over shadows the good 90% of the time, so it doesn’t matter if you only listen to ONE band that could be classed as bad, they’re main focus WILL be on that…
So tell me, what would you do IF that was the case for you ?
Alright so I made mention in my last post how Unknown Superhero 2 hasn’t seen the light of day in terms of full distribution well last night I got the covers redone (for both Unknown Superheros) and I uploaded both of the new covers, waiting on them to get accepted for full distribution on smashwords… However that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy them as my loyal readers as I reuploaded the first one with a cover and now the sequel cover included to scribd where my read count currently sits at 22,568
So here’s both Unknown Superhero’s (same guy just two different releases)
So tonight Crystal and I seen Iron Man 3, we both enjoyed the movie and hope to see more Iron Man in the future, I can’t wait till it’s on DVD as it’ll go with the rest of my Iron Man movies and fit nicely into our ever growing collection.
So many of you may be looking at me as stupid for how I did the title, however for those new bloggers that read this or those old ones who want to know a quick trick… If you have your blog set up with your twitter account, it’s can bring in more reads (or views) if you use hashtags (for more info about them click that word)
Just seeing the movie makes a ton of thoughts race through my own mind, but I know before I write another “action” (or comic as I call it) I have to finish the two I got on the go and get them shipped out the two I have on the go are:
Unknown SuperHero 2 – The End
Anger has little to nothing to it, so I really gotta dig deep with that one, as for Unknown SuperHero 2… I believe I’ll be killing him off but I haven’t decided yet… I have one release with him already so far the only releases they have seen are on SmashWords here’s the current read count:
Anger (285 reads)
Unknown SuperHero (432 reads)
Unknown SuperHero 2 – The End (187 reads)
The Funny thing about all 3 is only Unknown SuperHero (the first one) has full on distribution, the other two do not.. So people want to read them I just haven’t sat down and gotten to work on them, perhaps I will shortly I don’t know.. Unknown Superhero 2 – The End… is more of a working title… nothing is edged in stone right now
BTW I just realized Unknown SuperHero actually did make it to Scribd as well it doesn’t have many reads (just shy of 180)
The two other text comics are the only things we have left to put out on smashwords so that all our distribution is in green… (green means “GO” or “full distribution”) which means it’d be out in the world not just one or two sites.
I may redo the first Unknown SuperHero cover, since I don’t even know if I still have the image I used (as in the superhero image) I think I may have lost that… Oh well I’ve been enjoying doing new covers, always give me new ideas…
But anyways that’s the current update from yours truly basically a “comic book” update
So at some point in time in the morning (when I wake up or get woken up) I’ll be changing up the covers of the releases, they will be BIGGER…
More and more I look at these smaller covers the more I can’t help but to sit and wonder why did I keep them so small, as they’d be fine for maybe CDs but book covers need to look like book covers.
This change will take place when I get up like I said… it may look like a big job… but it’s not really.
I’ll let ya know when the changes take place…
Just one of many changes on it’s way.
So you may or may not have already heard or read some where on the web, but youtube is going to start charging for videos… Yes it’s true…. No not all videos just some more so independent flicks to help get them noticed… To see how well that goes… If it goes well then we all know youtube will expand on that and will no doubt get into the “pay per view” business and ultimately put things like Viewers Choice out of work or perhaps a run for it’s money…
I personally have NEVER liked youtube and google makes my stomach turn upside down and inside out, I will admit that a long time ago we had a youtube channel, but we found it did no good for us.. We now have two different channels that we bounce between a DailyMotion channel (our DailyMotion link) and a Blip.tv channel (our blip.tv link) both I prefer hand over fist over youtube.
I honestly see this being a big down fall for them if they start this.. I know server costs are expensive even though as many known Youtube is backed by Google who already have a ton of money and a ton more after that.
But the moment they start asking users to pay to watch other users videos or even to pay to check out music videos is the day that youtube “Crashes and Burns” and with a big company like that once you Crash and Burn once, it takes a lot to recover from that… Most companies do not and fade out as many will leave… few will return.
So yes those are my thoughts about this whole thing in regards to youtube charging its users to watch videos…
So on Friday Crystal and I went out and did some running around, while we were in one of our favorite movie places which just so happens to be a Mom & Pop movie shop that we frequent.. While checking out movies I decided to venture over to there game section of the store when I couldn’t help but notice.. You guessed it… Call Of Duty Black Ops 2…. so I snagged it up as the price on it was $24.99
Not a bad deal if I may say…. oh but wait, I also found another game for the same price the other game that I found for that same price was…. Halo 4
I already know that musicians tend to hate me for the most part cause I buy a ton of CDs that I have used so they make no money off that, I also know that movie studios really hate me for that same reason as I rarely ever do buy a movie brand new… I also know that video game companies hate people like me because of the same reason (rarely buy video games new) which is why the newer game systems are making things “chip based” or things with “serial numbers” so that you can’t buy things second hand.. However the thing is that will raise the pricing of gaming… As for me I’m happy with the 360 because it does what I want and I have no intention of buying a 720 anytime in the near future.
I do enjoy gaming, but what I don’t enjoy… is spending $40+ on one game brand new… I don’t make a ton of money (hell I am unemployed) which I’m sure the game makers don’t give a shit about…
But enough about that… just wanted to give everyone updates on my amazing game shopping, not only that BUT I got two amazing bonus’…
Black Ops 2 – came with 2 day FREE XBOX LIVE GOLD pass…
Halo 4 – came with 14 days of FREE XBOX LIVE GOLD pass..
I haven’t invested in books for either or at this point in time… as there are other things I’m looking at right now and haven’t started to play either game at this point.
Well that’s all from me at this point in time… Hope ya enjoyed and hope you enjoy my new blog theme…
You may or may not who he is, I didn’t know him personally but much like many I remember bumping his…. Cassette Tape…
He’s one half of the group known as Kriss Kross…
