Two new records from me are officially finished. One is Homestuck, one is not. Both are cut, mastered, and ready for publishing. I’ve just listened to some of the masters in Mark’s home studio, and I have to say I’m feeling highly confident in this music….
otakon was a great time for all, i think, at least within my con group, and i made a few close bonds that i think i’d really like to keep up this time. i did my midnight crew barbershop cosplay and it worked out well— both performances we had in the same night were met with great applause from the people who listened and it was a blast to sing for them all, especially with my whole quartet, consisting of ajeebes, steamlord313, and agentsama. i also enjoyed the company of tumblr-famous users slogbait, esabelleryngin, and ajeebes during a five hour long stretch of being cooped up in a hotel room while trying to get a cosplay done, and i can say that as ridiculously shitty as the day seemed like it was going to be, the payoff and denouement at the end of the day made everything way, way more than okay. i’ve had the best time, i think, and now i just need to battle the post-con blues boogie. hopefully i can get a bit of temp work at my mom’s school to build up some spending money before i head to college near the end of august— i’m going to miss ashburn and my friends here, but at the least, i know that i’ll always have the ability to contact them over the internet. thankfully, that is nigh-unbreakable, compared to the days before our amazing worldwide network. cheers, otakon 2012— i might not head to you next year since you were stunningly large, but i had a great experience this year.
