I am filled with mixed feelings today. This has been an issue that has been on my mind for a long time, but after many weeks of contemplation, I’ve finally decided to follow my heart and become a singer.
As some of you may have noticed, composing music is a very big passion of mine. I enjoy drawing and animating for Flash, but I’ve always seen it as a neat hobby rather than a passion. For the most part I’ve focused on creating songs for the animations and a few games here on the site, but I felt like they’ve always played second fiddle to the projects as whole.
I wanted to do something more with my skills, and it wasn’t going to happen with scoring animations.
What you may not know about me is that although I may be a sub-par music composer, I actually happen to be an extremely talented vocalist. In fact people have often told me that I have the voice of an angel (true story).
So recently I decided to take this amazing skill of mine and put it to good use, and so I wrote a few songs that I then submitted to various record labels across the globe.
Just as I suspected, the offers came rushing in and now all I have to do now is choose which label to sign with. So what does this all mean for Life.1? Don’t worry, LiFe.1 isn’t going anywhere, but Max will be taking over full responsibilty for the site. Unfortunately, projects like Surface will have to be put on hold, since those were collaborations between the two of us. However, we do have an amazing story concept that was proposed to us by a guy named Scott, that will more than make up for the loss of Surface, Kazahana, Rebel Burger, and XIN Chapter 3. You can read more about the new series, “Shadows of Black Dragon” on Max’s post below.
So there we go. It’s been fun, but I have found my true calling.
I know some of you will find it hard to believe, so before I leave, I’d like to share with you some the songs that I put in my demo tape. I will be working with more experienced producers to make these songs more polished for my album, that I know you will all buy.
Standards: This one is probably the best of the bunch in my opinion. I based the lyrics on a “friend” of mine, which is another way of saying that the song is based on myself. Warning: Contains profanity. Do not listen to this unless you’ve watched a movie that was rated R
Limit: Another song based on a “friend” of mine. This song takes advantage of my full vocal range, and listen to how I how i masterfully hit those high notes like a warm knife through butter. Not even Sanjaya Malakar can beat the sheer awesomeness of my singing ability. Its a love song. Warning: Contains profanity. Do not listen to this if you’ve never been annoyed ever in your life, and haven’t seen a movie that was rated R.
Start Again: This in my opinion is the weakest of the bunch, but the producers seem to think it has the most mainstream appeal since it doesn’t have any cussing in it, and since Emo will be the next big trend, this will be the title song of my album that you will all buy. Warning: Contains no profanity.
And with that, until we meet again, I love you all!
I’m so sad I could cry, but my tears are very expensive since I’m going to be a singer.
BUY THE BOOK! I mean THE ALBUM!
