PODCAST: The Lipstick Device is the featured music break for this weeks Weekend Confirmed!! Episode 28 to be exact.

The ability to break apart, dissect and extend any type of discussion about a game like Guitar Hero beyond 2 minutes is one miraculous feat and that’s exactly what they guys of Weekend Confirmed just did in episode 28. There's a reason it's THE gaming podcast it's also the reason why I never miss an episode. While I'm at it I'll bring up how this episode also happens to feature one of my songs “Proximity is Your Campaign.”

I’ve followed Garnett Lee’s podcasting since the early days at Ziff and countless restructuring in lineups. It's a lot like a band with each new revolving chair the chemistry takes a hit. Like many others, I’m also one who miss the original chemistry shared between Shane Bettenhausen, Luke Smith and John Davison, but that was the past and Weekend Confirmed is the present. Garnett never skips a beat even when special guesting the guys at 8-4 Play, another great podcast featuring former 1UP/GameVideos editor Mark MacDonald which focuses primarily on news coming from Japan. It's just as informative, wacky and entertaining as Garnett and the crew.

This post is simply to express my admiration for the great, entertaining minds over at 1up, ShackNews and of course Jeff Cannata, also of the Totally Rad Show. I find it extremely exciting to have something I created be featured on a podcast I truly respect and admire. Jeff's "Very true" response to the album title sent chills down my spine. Them there my fucking boys yo!!!

Rock Band Network Demo

It's about that time for another AAE TV segment where I look like some fucking wetbacked mongoloid looking mothafucker with a crooked jaw.  I currently have "Proximity is Your Campaign" up on the developers site goin through a playtest, without vocals.  I finally finished them up this week and now the only thing left is the animations and events midi file and we are golden.  Peer Review here we come.  Peer Review is the final step in the process where one must get at least 8 peers, XNA developers not the public :(, to review their song and then it officially hits the Rock Band Store for sale.  It's taken me a little under a month to get this song done but the next one should be way easier thanks to learning from my own mistakes.  Sure Harmonix offers tutorials and something they consider to be instructions but whoever they have writing them could shit in canteen with beef jerky for a spouse and I'd still be more amazed by that mess on their site.

Rock. <lml

Reaper DAW sucks fucking balls but Rockband Creators Network is all sorts of rad

Well, first off, I'm not having the greatest day but I just thought I'd pop in and say that the DAW of choice Harmonix chose for developing the songs is shit.  Issues, yeah I have some issues with their shit ass choice in making a mouse nout work like a fucking mouse.  Left is right and right is left.  Not only that you have to set custom actions, you know keyboard shortcuts and the like, for each individual fucking window that's open.  You have to customize them for the midi editor, the main arrange window, even a window called Main (alt record) which not only sounds like nothing that makes sense but I'd only like the punch the devs in the face for pronouncing the word PROcess not PRAHcess.  Stupid fucks they probably shitting in each others mouth and drinking out of a barn.  

Oh yeah, so the song I'm working on is "Proximity is your Campaign."  Familiarize yourself with it.  It'll be done soon or ass backwards sippin' soda shoes according to Cockos, yeah what kind of name is that anyway shit heads.  FUCK!
