This week’s post (I’m not sure if I’m doing these weekly, but I’ll say it anyway) is a quick one, but it’s pretty important. I’ll touch on a decision I made regarding how many of these acoustic songs will be remakes of my old tunes. On top of that, I’ll give an update on my progress. Read on if that interests you!Continue reading “Acoustic Album Update #3”
This acoustic album project started earlier this year. I don’t even remember when I started it. That aspect doesn’t even matter, but for your and my sake, I’d like to post more regular updates. My first thought about this project was that it would be quick and easy, and it’s not quite either of those things.
I posted about this a little bit on Twitter the other day. Depending on the song, doing these acoustic versions can be exceptionally easy or hard. In either case, so far at least, they’ve all been fun to work on. As of writing this, I’m not finished with any songs, but I’m mostly done on 3 songs. Let me give an update on those 3 songs here. Notice that I’m giving them cute pet names at this time. They’ll have their real names when it’s done.Continue reading “Acoustic Album Update #2”
Wow. I haven’t posted in a super long time. Since the last time I posted, crazy things have happened. The world is shut down, and I’m recording acoustic songs. What in the eff is going on?!Continue reading “I’m Alive!”
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”
