• AnonymousWell you did say it was out of your hands and NaS said we could blame him. Are you waiting for Andrew or what?
  • Yes, yes, feel free to blame NaS. He sent me back to the salt mines of Upper Michigan though. I heard that Aperture Science is nearby… hmmmm…

    We’re waiting on Betelgeuse, actually. Bandcamp page has to get its design. :3

  • AnonymousAnswer to what you asked on twitter: I wouldn't have pirated the album if I could choose the price (I would have paid 1 euro for it). I'm not really okay with paying 4.13 dollars for 8 songs, and I'm not okay at all with Hussie getting any money when you and the fanartists did all the work.
  • Hm.. where to start on this one. Piracy is a difficult thing to address. If you’re against it you get called pretentious, if you’re for it you get called a scumbag.

    But anyway, here’s what I think on your comment there.

    See, the thing is, Andrew gets money from the albums because he owns the record label we release our music through. This album wouldn’t exist if Homestuck didn’t exist, and I wouldn’t have the exposure I’m getting.

    And you don’t want to pay $4.13 for… 8 songs? That’s like.. 52 cents a song. How much do you see songs for sale on iTunes or the Amazon MP3 store? 99 cents a song. I’m just working with USA currency here, because it’s what I’m familiar with, but seriously, that’s just over half of the industry’s usual rate. So by that standpoint, and assuming that you actually can afford the album, you’re just being a rude cheapskate. :I

    But if you can’t actually afford it, then that’s a different story altogether, but it doesn’t excuse you pirating something I put a lot of time and effort into. If you’re desperate to listen to it, you can easily just listen to the songs on Bandcamp.

    As for the paying 1 euro, for what, the whole album? 1 euro makes me think you only like one song (and there are many fans out there who in fact have said as such and I’m totally cool with that). But they still bought the album, or they didn’t. Doesn’t matter to me, I’m just glad to know people are listening to my work.

    And those who really appreciate my work support me not only through comments and such, but financially as well.

  • AnonymousWhat skill level will your stream be for?
  • I’d like to try to shoot for beginner level, just explain how to use FL Studio, and some of the raw basics of production. At least, how I do things, anyway. I’m self-taught, so I might do things a lot differently than someone who went to school for it.

  • AnonymousBest and worst experiences with the Homestuck music team? Or your best and worst experiences with your musical career in general.
  • Hm.. to be honest, my worst experiences with the team also came at a time when I was pretty damn depressed and jaded with my personal life and career choice (this occurred specifically while I was mastering Volume 6 until some point before Wanderer’s release), so I can’t really give an objective response to the worst experience I’ve had. That’s not saying being on the team is perfect. We’ve had our squabbles, but when you work with a tightly-knit group for so long, eventually someone is going to push someone else’s buttons. But it’s cool. The guys on the team are great.

    As for my best experiences, a couple of them are prime reasons why I ended up having my worst experience. What do I mean? Oh, just this. And this.

    But then later on after all of that we had this and that. More to come, too. :3c

  • AnonymousIs there an album coming soon and/or will there be a second holiday album?
  • Related to Homestuck? No idea, actually. I should probably go check. I’ve been focusing so much on university stuff and commissions (like this and this!) to really pay attention much.
