I decided to take a look through my Youtube subscriptions and I was greeted with memories, nostalgia, and former friends of mine. Looking back I still can’t believe just how big it got and how long it lasted for the original guys from way back in 2011.
From what I’ve noticed, most of the original…
I get really mixed emotions on this. I never really felt like part of the scene. I was there, in mlr, but I felt disconnected from everyone else. I was just one of the pilot fish trying to leech off others’ popularity. Just picking up ableton that year, I got excited about subscribers and eqd features. But that was all. I have only taken from these legendary 2011 artists, learning techniques, getting a rolling start and a tidbit of feedback. I didn’t have anything to give in return.
Can I now consider myself a candidate for this new wave of talented or lucky musicians? Who knows. Frankly, I’ve found out that this has all brought me to a point where I can pursue music, due to what I have knuckled down and taught myself. I’ve made a few friends, but I’m just getting started. My trial period is ending as I prepare for a musical degree. I have your “generation” to thank. Especially you tsyolin, there was a point where you help me over some major hurdles. So i guess I feel a lot of regret at being too talentless and shy to participate, but hopeful that I’ll find my own happiness in music, and glad that the bronies had a lot to do with it. Why does everything have to so bittersweet?
Here’s my new setup for the summer! I built the pc about a month or so ago, and just finished making the desk in shop class. It’s a standing desk, and I need to spend even more now to get a drafting chair. But I couldn’t be happier! the desktop runs crazy good, even under a billion vsts and/or video games. So much easier to write without ableton crashing under 10 kontakts. Unfortunately ill lose the desk for a year or so when I’m living in dorms.
The story I’ve been assembling for this comic has growing a lot, and I’m trying to decide the best way to go about it. I have to decide whether to keep it OC oriented or work more with the canon characters. Most importantly though, the story is getting too complex to flesh out in comic form. I’ll never be be able to tell the whole thing. So that leaves me contemplating whether or not to turn it into a fanfic. I am a mighty fine writer. Perhaps I could continue the comic as a side story, who knows.
None of this will start until after the Antipodes Soundtrack release, but I’d like to know what you guys want to see over the summer.
