2019 is going to be a weird year for me to review because it was only like, 3 months long. That’s how it felt, at least. Whatever the case, if you haven’t been following me for a while, I do these yearly review things. Here I’ll give quick rundowns on my favorite movies, music, video games, and whatever else of the year. This year I’ll stick to what I liked and not what I didn’t. Okay. Let’s do this.

Modus Operandi has been available everywhere (except YouTube for some reason; I’m working on that) for a month now. Going by Spotify stats, not too many people jumped on it. I do wonder if there’s some algorithm that screws up its exposure since the release date is set to 2010. Or maybe just no one likes it. Whatever. Continue reading “Random Blog Post #20”
That’s right! The album that was only heard by half a handful of people in 2010 is now available to everyone and sounds way better!
I went over the main differences in a post yesterday, so I won’t go over that again. This post is to mainly give links to where you can listen to this 11-track opus! Before I get into that though, let me sort of celebrate the occasion. Continue reading “Modus Operandi Is Now Available!”
Today’s post is about some general notes and differences between the original, crappy, unmastered version of the album that I thought I was done with in August of 2010. All the tracks are at least a little shorter than they were before, usually due edits during long-winded instrumental sections. Or it was from making fade-ins and fade-outs a little quicker. Whatever the case, let’s dig into it. Continue reading “Reviving Modus Operandi, Pt. 2”
I considered doing a drawn-out blog series about me going back and making my 2010 album, Modus Operandi, new again. That was the method for Punk Rebel Renegade and Boobs, Butts, and Feets. Modus Operandi is less of a classic album. Aside from one song on it that made its way to Rock Band via the Rock Band Network, it’s largely unknown. But that’s how most of my stuff is, so whatever. I’ve been talking about finally releasing this album to the public for a while, so this isn’t a big announcement, but it’s more of a formal behind-the-scenes talk. Continue reading “Reviving Modus Operandi, Pt. 1”
If you’ve been keeping up, my music-making PC died in the final throws of finishing up More Awesome Than Awesome. It took a while to get it all my software together working on a new one, but I think I’m finally ready to get back into it. I even have Sonic Foundry Acid 4.0 working on it, as well as possible, at least. Why? Because I’m preparing my 2010 album, Modus Operandi, for an official 2019 release! Continue reading “Random Blog Post #19”
I usually post these in December, but this year I wanted to wait until the year was over to even start writing it. Why? I don’t know. Whatever the case, here’s my annual writeup of notable likes and dislikes of 2018. Side note: I’ve had this written for weeks before posting it. It’s not a super entertaining read or even exhaustive by a long shot, but…whatever. Continue reading “Robby Reviews 2018”
Here we go. I like to write these retrospectives after I release an album. Whether or not anyone likes reading them is a different story, but…whatever. Leading up to the release of the album, I gave a decent amount of looks behind the scenes. But these retrospectives are kind of long form and include audio clips and such. The plan was to publish this long before now, but I felt like part of the story is to see how it performed after the release. So this is going to be cool, maybe. Let’s get to it.
You can read a lot about the recording of More Awesome Than Awesome in previous posts below. I don’t want to rehash old information. Let me just tackle each track individually. I’ll try to keep the commentary to a minimum. Continue reading “More Awesome Than Awesome – The Retrospective”
Boom. My new album, More Awesome Than Awesome, is now available everywhere. Well, almost everywhere. Here are some links to the more popular outlets. For some reason, it’s not on YouTube yet. Every other time I’ve put out an album, it gets put on YouTube the same time as everything else. If it doesn’t go up today, I’ll get it up there tomorrow.
If your preferred music-listening-place isn’t listed below, search for it wherever you do listen to music. It should be everywhere by now except for Pandora (because it’s hard to get music put on there) and YouTube (see previous paragraph).
It’s a weird album. I spent much more time and money on this thing than I have any of my other albums. Not that that makes it inherently better than my other albums, but I suppose it makes me more eager to spread the word.
In the next month sometime, I’ll probably put up some kind of retrospective on the album, going into detail about the recording and overall production of the album. I’ll try to include some outtakes, clips of demo versions of the songs, etc. It should be a fun read.
Anyway, listen to More Awesome Than Awesome, if you’re bored or whatever. And tell everyone you know about it too.
Oh. I also put up a cool shirt available on Amazon that you might like too. Go here for that.
Would you believe it? I’m releasing a new album finally, and it comes out next Friday! Now isn’t the time for me to pimp my new stuff too much. I’ll do that next Friday and talk more about the album after that sometime. Right now, I just want to let you know of some of the places where you can preorder it now.
Amazon: Preorder More Awesome Than Awesome now, and you’ll even be able to download one of the tracks, “Stick It to the Man,” immediately.
Bandcamp: If you want the most flexibility in file format, Bandcamp is the way to go. On top of that, you get “Stick It to the Man” right away, and it’s also probably the cheapest way to get the album and/or single tracks, since I set the pricing myself. Other outlets set their own prices. Also, you can get a nice discount if you choose to buy all my music there at once.
iTunes: Like on Amazon and Bandcamp, you can preorder the album now and get “Stick It to the Man” at the time of purchase. All the cool kids buy their stuff on iTunes.
New Shirt: I’ve got a cool new shirt on Amazon too. Get it if you haven’t already.
