  1. Oh my god I think the video above is the first you sent me of Jenny and it was SUCH a journey. It just KEEPS GETTING BETTER. Every time you're like "Okay, this is the worst a reality show can be" something ELSE happens, it's like a gift that keeps on giving. Hella approved!
  2. Hey peoples So if you've heard of me, you've probably heard that I'm a massive music nerd. I work as a sound engineer, and in my downtime I sometimes make music that I feel isn't enough of in the music world. And then I upload them here! (Oh wow, there's even a massive Soundcloud feature.) I find it hard to describe it all with one genre, but I tend to just say "progressive rock". It's 99% instrumental, and everything's played by me. There's not really lyrics or anything, but I do my best to conjure up a very specific mood or sort of tell a story with just noises and sounds. Sometimes it's about strange architecture, sometimes it's about an android having an existential crisis. Enjoy, and lemme know what you think!
  3. Sometimes you just kinda have to open a taco shop on the roof of a casino on the moon, am I right? (It got rave reviews: four stars out of five. And that's unheard of.)
  4. @Lelling If I saw you on the street, would I throw you and yell YEET tonight? SPEAKING OF SONG OBSESSIONS I'd never heard of this band or song before before it popped up on my Discover Weekly playlist. (If you don't know what that is, I heavily recommend it: it's a Spotify playlist that generated weekly, with songs and bands you're not already listening to, but are sort of in your orbit.) So I was gonna say one or two comments about this song but it turned into a little essay. The entire thing is 12 minutes long, but it's so diverse and yet hypnotic that by the time it ends, I'm always disappointed and listening to any other song immediately afterwards feels weird. I think what makes it work is that the rhythm is basically always the same, but everything around it never is. There's little to no repetition in the vocals, it's always either a different phrasing, voicing or a different lyric. Lyrics themselves range from amusingly bizarre to sober wisdoms; vocals have a build up of slowly becoming more unhinged, sometimes they're doubled for a sentence or two but the effect is never milked to exhaustion; the synths and weird guitar effects in the background get more and more layered of chaos. By the time you might get bored of that, the song introduces the mega catchy ooo-hoo-hoo's. It really feels like you're being hypnotized at a dance event in some large hall while this man shouts wisdoms at you. It's truly a thoroughly interesting song for anyone even half interested in music production: a lot of subtle details make this song work and if one such detail hadn't been there, the entire song would've collapsed into a longwinded bore. TL;DR: this song is pretty cool. Tune in next time for another small music essay no-one asked for.
  5. Hey everyone! Some of you already know me, my name is Pippin! I've been a friend of Lelling's for quite a few years, since we played WoW together. I was also part of the OC D&D group that we had going a while back. I don't really play GW2 which is why most of you don't see me often or even know me, but now and then I pop up in the Overwatch chat of the Discord, or on Teamspeak. I've always been a quiet supporter of OC, but never really got the ball rolling in terms of actually becoming a part of the community. :D My name's not actually Pippin, it's Pepijn but seeing as how many people have no idea how to pronounce that, I tend to go by Pippin. I'm Dutch, I'm 24 years at the moment, and the only other love I have next to videogames is music. I recently graduated as a sound technician, and sometimes (very rarely, let's be honest) I actually finish a song I wrote myself and upload it to my soundcloud. So yeah, see you on Discord or Teamspeak I guess! :D
