I had the awesome privilege of working on Redbull’s Music Academy NYC street campaign again this year, which is starting to go live around Brooklyn in the form of murals by the ever-amazing painters at Colossal Media (I can’t imagine trying to copy photorealistic art onto a big wall—those guys are so good but they probably also hate me at this point lmao). 

Anyway, I did portraits of Gucci Mane, Alice Coltrane, Jenny Hval, and Solange, so if you see their faces around the city this month, let me know!

I am a high school drop out with severe depression and anxiety.
I’ve been trying to get a job for 4 months now so I can finally start to get my life rolling.

I shared this photo with my friend not even 2 days ago and now I start work at a 5 star hotel tomorrow morning.

I just thought maybe some people should know.

Know that like, some good can come out of life too.

Dear Welcome to Night Vale fans!

I just broke crowdfunding records with my epic music video campaign for “Pretty Little Head” (THANK YOU to all of you who made that happen - you rule)! The song was featured on ep 45, “A Story About Them”, and that’s when it took on a life of its own and become a cult hit across the internet.

Here’s a video of us performing my silly song, “Foot Soldiers”, in the lobby of a venue three years ago. Filmed by Cecil Baldwin, and with a PRIZE cameo by Dylan Marron.

Everyone loves this rare song, and I only make the recording available to backers of my Kickstarter campaigns! That means it’s possible for you to get it ABOUT ONCE EVERY TWO OR THREE YEARS! To those of you who reeeeeeally want this song, time is running out for you to have it - as in, a matter of hours. So take advantage of this and other campaign perks while they’re available. Get it … GO!!!!!!!!

The Star Spangled Man

(A missing scene from Special Relationship)

a birthday gift for @agentkarnstein

happy happy (belated) birthday Minty! I hope you had a wonderful day and that this year is a fantastic one :D

As always, scotch performed its duty as social lubricant admirably, and it wasn’t long before Peggy was laughing along with Steve’s old unit as if she had been part of it herself. The Howling Commandos, as they had once been known, regaled her with their wildest tales behind enemy lines until she was in stitches.

There was one story, though, she was dying to hear, but every time she brought it up, someone would glance at Steve, wince, and quickly change the subject.

So the minute Steve excused himself, she turned to the rest of the men and whispered, “So what is up with the whole ‘Captain America’ thing?”

They all exchanged glances, and Peggy rolled her eyes. “Oh come on! Whenever I ask Steve about how it started, he just blushes, says he’s going to kill Barnes, and changes the subject. I want to know where the name came from.”

Barnes leaned forward, forearms resting on his legs. “Okay, but you can’t tell him we told you. He hates it when we bring it up, especially in front of his girlf—” he cleared his throat as Peggy glared at him and corrected, “—his colleagues.”

Roll the Music

*This is a Very Serious Post™ for once*

Unique theme music for your D&D campaigns, written and produced specially for you? Or character themes maybe?

I don’t like doing commercial stuff on here, but if anyone is at all interested, I’m running extremely low on cash and struggling to pull together the resources I need to launch my career.

I’ve always used fairly generic fantasy music as a dramatic way to set the mood while we get settled for a session, but there is a certain satisfaction in having your own theme tune.

Anyways, if you’d like to know more, drop me a pm.

On this day in music history: May 4, 1982 - “Original Musiquarium I”, the twenty seventh album (fourth compilation) by Stevie Wonder is released. Produced by Stevie Wonder, it is recorded at Mediasound Studios, Electric Lady Studios, The Record Plant, The Hit Factory in New York City, Crystal Industries and Wonderland Studios in Hollywood, CA, The Record Plant, Westlake Audio in Los Angeles, CA and The Record Plant in Sausalito, CA from Mid 1971 - April 1982. After the release of “Hotter Than July” and tour in support of it, Stevie Wonder turns his attention away from music to continue his campaign to make Martin Luther King, Jr.’s birthday a national holiday. As one of Motown’s biggest artists and with no plans for a new album, it becomes a concern to the label. Then label president Jay Lasker offers Stevie $2 million to compile a greatest hits album, for release in early 1982. Wonder agrees, only if Motown makes it a double album with new material added, and ups the amount to $3 million. Lasker agrees and Stevie begins assembling the package. Titling it “Original Musiquarium I”, it consists of twelve classics from 1972 to 1980. The end of each side is completed with one of four new songs. Motown enthusiastically announces the impending release in December of 1981, just as Stevie delivers the first single, promising masters for the rest in January 1982. The first single titled “That Girl” (#1 R&B, #4 Pop) quickly races up the R&B chart spending nine weeks on top, and into the top five on the pop chart. Though in typical Stevie Wonder fashion, the original date comes and goes without the album materializing. January, then February, then March, then April go by… No album… Finally the other new tracks are finished and the final masters are hand delivered to Berry Gordy at Motown by Stevie himself. It is rushed into production and finally arrives in stores the first week of May in 1982. The second single, the funky and upbeat “Do I Do” (#2 R&B, #13 Pop, #1 Club Play) features jazz icon Dizzy Gillespie soloing on the nearly ten and a half minute track, going into an extended breakdown during the last two minutes, with Stevie breaking into a spontaneous call and response with his band and freestyle rap. It is followed by the ballad “Ribbon In The Sky” (#10 R&B, #54 Pop) which becomes wedding dance and Quiet Storm radio staple. The final new song “Front Line”, is one of the first to address the poor treatment of US Vietnam Veterans after returning home. Though successful and a long term best seller, Jay Lasker later comments that Motown had missed out on sales of over a million copies due to the late delivery of the album. Originally released on CD in 1984, it is remastered and reissued in 2000. “Original Musiquarium I” spends three weeks at number one (non-consecutive) on the Billboard R&B album chart, peaking at number four on the Top 200, and is certified Gold in the US by the RIAA.

Before their journey started, each of our characters had a snippet of a prophecy relayed to them by a mysterious being in their dreams. It isn’t until later when they meet up for real that they can piece together what it was even about, and what their purpose is.

They have to stop the Violet Sun from falling, or their world is doomed.

(Dang I’m really getting hype about doing random music snippets for this campaign I’m in. Hopefully I learn more about music stuff while the hype’s riding high)

VOTE ALICE COOPER 2016
“The kids need a savior, don’t need a fake..”
Alice Cooper promises to take the country by storm and rock to the rules he makes. 

Excerpts of his rousing speech:
“And if I am elected, I promise the formation of a new party
A third party, the Wild Party!

I know we have problems, we got problems right here in Central City.
We have problems on the North, South, East and West,New York City,
Saint Louis, Philadelphia, Los Angeles, Detroit, Chicago,
Everybody has problems,
And personally… I don’t care.”

Blazing the campaign trail, his popularity amongst young voters is rapidly growing. While most older candidates stick to speeches, statements, and books, Mr. Cooper has also released a hit single; hitting it off with our Department of Youth and setting the bar to new heights.

Mr. Cooper, while having no political experience, is a unique candidate and promises to bring something new to the table, and a lot of firsts. One being to issue a 1,000,000,000 Dollar Bill

In addition, Cooper says if he is elected, school will be out..forever!
“We’ve got the power!”

Waste no time, get to the polls!

“I Wanna Be Elected”

I have a weird question to ask feel free not to answer do you listen to music while coming up with campaign ideas if so what kind

I do actually listen to music, yeah. It’s pretty much a mix depending on what I’m working on at the moment, but my advice for you is to listen to whatever gives you ideas. Whether it calms you down or helps you get pumped up, whatever gets you in the zone is good.
