link, you should check my dark ambient thread over in non-metal. You might find something relevant.

I came down about 12 hours ago and slept.

Violin was my first instrument. I'm actually a much better violin player than guitar or bass player. It took years of practice though, I've been playing for ten years and I still can't make it sound as good as the professionals. But if you're going from guitar it will be difficult. You don't have to worry about making chords often (unless you are making country music haha) but you have to worry about pressure for all of your dynamics which can be difficult

Violins don't have frets! How do you compute

It's much simpler on a violin, honestly. All of your notes are based off of finger lengths, pretty much. With your four strings, you have 3 whole step notes before your note is the next string. So say I'm playing an open d, push my finger right up next to the nut and it's an e flat. push my finger right next to where it was when it was making an e flat, then its making an e. And so on. So the concept of frets is pointless on a violin.

I tried to explain that as best I could, hope it makes sense. With a guitar, the distance between two adjacent notes is much larger so frets help show you where to put your fingers. The distance between the same d and e flat is like an inch, compared to the centimeter or so on a violin

Spent the last few hours working on getting compositions finished, all are specifically for A Window to the Sun. I literally worked on the drums of 3 songs, got two completely finished, just in need of some basslines and leads, and one only needs like one more drum part and it'll be done, except for the "finishing the two solos in it" part...

Basically worked for 5-6 hours on music today, feel great about it!

Trill you should check out some of the videos me and my roommate made last year
http://www.youtube.com/user/AwakeShow
I mean I know its fairly poorly done I'm not gloating, and were not the best actors, but I think we have a entertaining cliche going at least haha- we'd love to continue it this year but we had a bit of an argument where we wanted the show to go. Theres only 3 episodes. I wanted it to become scary and trippy and my roommate wanted it to become a Supernatural/Action packed thing

So as soon as he wanted to write an episode it stopped because we couldn't agree on the direction essentially

That bit with the masked man was actually a little riveting, but the narrative in the first video sort of siphons from the atmosphere. Episode 2 is pretty wonderful in the beginning (and I like how you borrowed a Vali song in here) with the lack of control he has over his own psyche.

That's a bit funny you bring this up, though: I've been working on something similar for the past few months now and I'm planning to release it sometime soon. I can't really compare my ability to act with any others as it's a bit unorthodox and sort of empty. It's a grave mind game concerning areas where I used to live and explaining the phenomena of wasted humanity passed along through a hard disk of somebody unrelated. Somebody gets a hold of it after requiring one, takes note of all the stuff that's on it, and eventually figures out the puzzles. After that, he visits these places to be greeted by a host of problems, including the disruption of time, history, and personal identity, to which he finds himself more engaged in determining the evolving puzzle (which becomes more and more simple, yet more and more complicated to the character) than making any recollection of where he is and who he's dealing with. Of course, the abstract isn't the only enemy.

The abstract...so intense. I just had a nightmare over the abstract...I always knew it was a gloomy thought but I never knew it was nightmare material. Then I started eating breakfast while listening to epic music (not folk) and contemplating the whole thing, and contemplating my contemplating the whole thing, etc. etc. and basically trying to keep my brain from exploding or going in pointless circles resulting in blank nihilism. That sounds like a very "cool" story (/video) by the way. Problem solving is an important part of life, but it can be taken too far. Probably not a heavy concern for my insignificant mind, but still something worth realizing.

Thanks for the feedback man. We had very few people who wanted to partake, everyone only wanted to be apart of silly things. I was actually playing the masked man and the unknown guy with shades. I wonder what this would be like if there was no narrative, your right it might be better for the audience to tie the knots instead of forcing plot.

Whenever you have anything to post, post it, it'd be awesome to see

Maybe you should start your own thing up again on your own terms. I'm open to interpretation on these things if something was needed.

Second week of November is what I'm shooting for.

I didn't even notice VR trolling me, haha. How predictable of you. Really says something about the wasted potential of this community. Maybe if I change my username to BlankNihilism and troll the fuck out of people, I'll be cool!

Wait.

No.

Thanks black, I'll see if I can get Andrew and the boys to another few episodes. I got him to watch Marble Hornets so maybe he'll be down for horror again
