So I applied for a Graphic Designer & Digital / Screen Printing position at 5pm. I got a call just now from the guy who owns the business and he wants me to come in at some point in the week to have a look around as the job listing was filled a few weeks ago but there’s apparently some spots to fill coming up.

One hour is all that took from application to phonecall.

DAFUQ?! This is sounding pretty good.


Zackery Wilson, one of my favorite chiptune artists, just released a full album!

Zackery Wilson’s “SNESQUE” is the marriage of Super Nintendo soundfonts (i.e. collections of samples from original Super Nintendo video games) and modern-day audio production (i.e. EQ, delay, reverb, filters, etc.). For each original track, Zack adhered strictly to self-imposed limitations: Each was created using only one soundfont (exclusive to each respective game), again, only taking liberties with audio production and some creative sample manipulation (i.e. pitch-shifting, time-stretching, etc.); the structure of each track limited to roughly a minute’s worth of music, looping once (in the tradition of standard video game “level” music) before fading out.

From progressive rock to jazz fusion, samba to swing, “SNESQUE” is a hodgepodge of musical styles, connected by the nostalgic sound of Super Nintendo video games and the familiarity of present-day audio production techniques.

I managed to draw the first stuff I’ve been happy with in a week! This situation really sucks but at least it can’t get much worse so there’s bound to be good times ahead.
