Don't Give Me Unsolicited Advice About My Art [Pinned Toot] 

As an artist confident in their abilities please don't give me advice about what I do unless I ask for it. I appreciate the listens & you having thoughts, but I don't need to hear 'em.

I've been doing what I do to my own standards & the standards of those who pay me for years, so keep any unsolicited advice out of my mentions. I know what I'm doing. If I don't, I research & learn from those in the know.

Thanks! [Pinned]

Dishonored thoughts 

I won't be able to play Deathloop for a few years for hardware reasons, so I'm playing that new game, Dishonored 2, and doing the anti-stealth form of it.

Turns out, stealthy play in Dishonored 2 makes it worse due to the size and intricacies of the levels! This wasn't an issue in the original Dishonored or Death Of The Outside, both of which are A+.

After many times trying to get into Dishonored 2, this is the first time I've really enjoyed it as a Game and not An Art Thing

Reached a point in mixing where I realized I didn't know what Sound was meant to be any more.

Y'know, the 'is this better/worse/how do things sound normally/what is happening?' experience.

*turns off DAW and leaves for another day*

Yes, I'm asking for help, and it's hard: Rebooting my Life (long) 

TL;DR: I survived a ridiculous run of overwhelming, life threatening BS and need help rebuilding myself to live in the "real world" that I keep hearing about.

I could write a novel about things that have gone wrong in the last decade, so I'll give a still-brief sum up: about 10 years ago I survived Stage IV and II cancers with about a 30% survival chance. I worked full time through all of it. After recovering my ex took nearly everything I owned after we moved to their family home after I lost my job. On the way back to family, my car died and I had to sell it for food/shelter after which family took me in. I have been without work, permanent housing, and income for 4 years. I'm done listening to people who have convinced me that I'm a failure and should just give up and live with my emotionally abusive family.

A while back I asked for help on a kofi to get my hosting costs covered for professional / self promotion, portfolio building, and learning. I'm asking again for funding to get the next items to pull myself up: Educational books, related software, and maybe even a phone that doesn't randomly reboot and hosting isn't bottom tier.

I have a kofi, and while the page itself focuses on my music goals what I'm really shooting for here is getting into InfoSec and/or DevOps.

Please feel free to pass around and drop some coin my way. I'd really appreciate it. ko-fi.com/drskrzyk

Thank you for reading this, donating, and boosting.

Spending much less time online due to a new job, focusing on developing too much new music, while loving a weekly wrestling show that's worthwhile paying attention to. All on top of my usual joys/trials.

There aren't enough hours in the day, but I'm glad there's lots of fun/worthwhile/new&old stuff to get lost in.

Rare form of my music:

osirissaline.bandcamp.com/trac

It's quite a relaxing, light, jaunty thing! And yes, for the ten Jellyfish fans on here, the name is intentional.

I really like this simple little cyberpunk menu/options themes I did for a @warpgate9 & @welshpixie game a few years ago: osirissaline.bandcamp.com/trac

I'm not one for much music without my actual in hand instrument recorded playing on it, but it is a nice bit of programming I guess?

I'm back to playing the GBA & Gamecube Wario Ware versions already.

The Gamecube version is still a simply better game than any other party game. Even the extra great Mario Party (11) on the Switch right now.

Show thread

When you post something, and even with a harsh humour tag you realise it's probably not worth keeping up after 3 seconds.

Oh the brain/humour/view on things you get after having to survive a lot of stuff.

I am glad* the entire world is like Hitman.

*decidedly not glad most of the time

The new Wario Ware is very good, but it is a noticeably more confusing party game if you play with people who aren't somewhat aware of the tropes shown in the minigames.

That's actually quite disappointing! But still, fun if you have people who know how each individual character works.

Gamecube Wario Ware remains the best.

Rambles on capitalism, living, and not panicking about rent for a bit 

The upside to having a (not very much, but notable) increase in money is that you think it's so much, but then you realize it just covers rent/bills/basic food.

Which is great! It's just that it's a bit sad that basic elements being covered feels like a luxury, innit?

First time in a few years for this feeling, though. And even in the past it was rare...

It may be now, too, but I hope I can stay somewhat steady.

Okay, I'm deleting my Patreon on Sunday.

Before that day, go and listen/download then enjoy/mock/use some of it in a project of yours by checking out this post: patreon.com/posts/55854254

None of my music costs any money at this point, and outside of covers and soundtracks, my original music is all .

Thanks to everyone who's ever supported me, on Patreon, here, or elsewhere. Fiscally or as a community, or individually. S'all appreciated.

fedifriends assemble

I am looking for some help with a fediverse centric media project.

Needing some volunteers to do some voice and narration for some reusable project collateral as well as some weekly micro theatric readings. 5-15 minutes /week max. You don't need a "radio" voice, would love some variety and enthusiam.

Not announcing more public but happy to spill proverbial beans to interested parties.

Finding those random Sonic 2 programmed things you made a few years ago is always fun.

The archives of the musical soul.

In news I just re-released On Pedestrian Wolves!

BANDCAMP: osirissaline.bandcamp.com/albu
ARCHIVE: archive.org/details/osiris-sal

3 progressive-shoegaze-ish songs (plus instrumental versions) about werewolves, life alongside systemic nightmares, and the ego tied to endless hope for returns!

Streamlining all releases, and prepping covers not on Bandcamp to go up there, is a big nightmare in terms of organization, isn't it?

Keeping several download links alive, while trying to keep all information accurate and roughly readable is...always a lot more time consuming than you think!

Also just made a cool EP into a creative commons thing, but I'll share that information later on.

Released music is half glaring at databases, and one third realizing admin errors from years ago.

Still think Sinking Swans may be the best punk thing I threw together in a manic episode. May need to pick up the heavy bass effects again in future: osirissaline.bandcamp.com/trac

I don't think I mentioned that a fun and pretty nicely put together low budget documentary called The Palindromists has a pretty old composition called Salvador Darling on it.

I do love a good palindrome ("do geese see god" is a personal favourite) so yeah, that's fun.

Going to make the last of the $$ things on Bandcamp free (yay, free soundtracks!) and close down my Patreon over the next week or so.

But I listened to some of the stuff I forgot about, and finding lovely little non-final-version acoustic stuff like this is great: osirissaline.bandcamp.com/trac
