Before I start, I better point out I'm listening to 'Forgot About Dre' whilst writing this post. Yup, that's the first thing: since I last did anything noteworthy on the internet, my taste in music has dramatically changed.
So, where've you been?
Good question. Simple answer: here. I haven't actually been anywhere this year. The reason that my hiatus from the internet is so long this time, is that I am starting my A-Levels. Yes, I realise that this was inevitable. My initial plans were to keep making noise online for as long as possible, but that hasn't been the case. I decided to write this blog post because I'm doing a lot on Weebly currently (which I will get to later) and I decided that this site needed a new design too.
What've you been up to?
Well, let me address the elephant in the room: I haven't been making videos. My last proper video for YouTube was over a year ago, and, to be honest, I haven't really done anything in the way of getting back into it. I shut down my gaming channel, ASG, last month and that marked the end of an era for me. The only reason I shut it down was because we weren't gaining popularity, and we didn't really have the time or motivation to keep it going.
Once the exams had passed, we knew that school life was about to get serious... Like, more serious than ever before. I personally made the decision that from the end of the summer (which was my break) I would stop making videos. However, I was pondering the possibility of returning in video form to the internet recently - I almost made this post into a video - and I may be going back to it at some point.
Aside from school, I've been working on my latest project, Urtisia. Eventually this will become the project that made me. I'll do another post soon about how it came about, but in short it is a combination of (near enough) all my ideas I've had over the years with some input from my friends and family. I'll keep you updated.
Music, pls thx.
Yeah, I know. I haven't been creating any music lately. I wrote a couple of raps (as I said, my taste has changed) and I've been listening to a heck of a lot of music. In all honesty, the albums I've released or showcased on the internet aren't really about the music - as you can tell by the... er... quality - but instead about the practice in organising musical assets like artists, record labels and business partnerships. I will, one day, get some professional equipment and do music properly, but it is just a hobby of mine.
You still haven't answered my question.
WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN?
I believe I did answer that, Typical YouTube Commenter, but it's good that you brought it up again because I have some things to add. I stopped doing my film reviews because I was watching too many films to keep up, and besides, I couldn't come up with creative criticism every time I watched a film. I either enjoyed it, or didn't. Finally, I'd like to say that most things on the Aacade Inc. website are ideas and works in progress and you should follow the Twitter account for updates.
Well then. Until next time, have a very good 21st Century and I'll see you when the world catches up with Doctor Who. Bye!
