My newest track. Of course as hobby musicians we have zero expectations but I did enter the song in a contest to win some music gear.

You made that??!  HOLY CRAP!  That's amazing!  Musical skill is rare and difficult to learn.  You know what, you get a like!

Constructive criticism:  please consider slowing down the tempo of both the instrumentals and vocals in much of the song.  Let those notes/words linger for a sec before moving forward.

Thanks Hydra. I love feedback, I think I agree and will play around with that tempo !

A History of the World in 100 Objects.  Generally pretty good with a few episodes genuinely brilliant, even if it gives way too much of a pass to world religions and presents them as not much more than factors in the development of art and culture, breezily dismissing the Crusades, the Muslim wars of conquest, etc.

I'm so sorry.
Nothin' to apologize for.  I remember when that song first came out.  I usually liked his music anyway.

Shout out to Cassia for making me work up the nerve to upload my first track in over year!

Learning how to use Blender to try to make animated stories to go with the music, but for now I have to use words. "Goodnight Friend" is about that feeling you get when you first inserted a video game cartridge and were welcome by the title screen and retro music to an entirely new world, one full of mystical beings, treacherous villains and stalwart friends who accept you as you are. It is a world where no matter how dark things may be, you fight for what is right no matter what and at the end of the day good wins out over evil.

It's also a song of loss; one day you will beat the game, and it goes on a shelf... then some days later, the console becomes outdated, and they are boxed and tossed in the garage. You begin to forget details of the world, and overtime it eventually completely fades from your memory until one day you find that box and decide to plug it back in to revisit a world that once meant so much to you. But like all things, time takes it's toll, and as you load up at that title screen of the world that helped you escape your own, it flickers and glitches; the music distorted and crunchy. The electronics simply have begun to fail, both due to time and neglect. Before you turn off the console, you remember one last thing; the ending melody, and all those feelings coming rushing back at once.

The game I used to escape a world where evil always seemed to win, the world I used to escape the long, drawn out process of watching my dad waste away to cancer and my mom detach from reality... in hearing that final tune one more time, there is some acceptance and comfort in it all. Everything loses to father time, and that's okay; those adventures still happened even if they can never be relived.
