Welcome back,how have you been?

Ember69 responds:

Pretty good. Been focusing more on school and less on music, art and video games. How have you been?

I can say everything's fine for now,before school starts.So what have you been up to in the time when you weren't here?

Ember69 responds:

Working toward my associates in Cybersecurity. Trying to work on some music and working.

Oh wow,that job sure sounds important!So do you program anti-virus softwares or something else?And that song you've submitted,it's very well done(not that I have a good ear for music) but it's like something that I'd hear on the radio.Classical is your favourite type of music,huh?

Ember69 responds:

I don't have much experience with software, most of my experience and knowledge is in hardware. Right now I'm learning how to set up, configure and secure a network. I'm glad you liked that song. I have started another song called Comfort zone. It won't be as clean as snow. Snow was written in Cubase 7. This little ditty I'm writing for fun is being written in LMMS. I hope that I can get it written by then end of next week. If I don't get disenchanted with it. Classical isn't my favorite type of music. I was just inspired to write something classical-ish at that time. Comfort Zone is more techno. I write or draw things based off of what I'm inspired by at the time.

Ah,so you like poetry too?

Ember69 responds:

yeah. I prefer it in the form of lyrics though.

Sounds like you got the right stuff to be a songwriter!

Ember69 responds:

Haha! Thank you. I hope so.

I hope to see your album!

Ember69 responds:

I've been trying to put an album together forever now. The lack of funds and the presence of college is keeping me from achieving this goal. I'm glad you look forward to it. When I do accomplish this task I will post it on here. :)

Now that's an idea,maybe you can put up some songs here as a demo.

(Updated ) Ember69 responds:

https://soundcloud.com/emily-close/sets/colabs
here are some colabs that I have on my soundcloud. kinda a demo-ish thing

*NOTE: snow is part of my colab list. I used JRYE's equipment but I wrote the piece... so I kept it as a collaboration hence why snow was written in Cubase and I'm currently working in LMMS :P ALSO PLEASE EXCUSE MY TERRIBLE VOCALS. Alot of this work was done between 3-5 years ago.

I'm afraid but I'll have to disagree with the part about your voice.Though it's short,I can tell you did your best and it's not bad!Maybe a little more practice and you'll be on your way to success.Well done and keep it up,miss!

Ember69 responds:

Thanks. I dont know what ones you listened too. Some were my best and some were done on days i was sick

I think it's Perpetua,the first one there and wow,you are really dedicated to making music!

Ember69 responds:

yep thats me. I wan't sure if you listened to the jam I posted or the collab playlist. Definitely check out some of the people I've worked with. They all taught me a thing or two about composition. Also, I hope to be more dedicated to music once I'm done with college. :P

So your cyber security job is part of your college work or your dream?

Ember69 responds:

Cyber Security is just my major. I'm still working my way to that being my actual job. I wouldn't necessarily say its my DREAM. It's something I can stomach doing for 30 years and not hate myself. It's fun, the schoolwork isn't too bad and I've met a lot of really cool people. If I had to say what my DREAM was it would be this wonderful land where I can eat as much cheese and pasta as I want without repercussions. It's a place where places of employment care about hard work over politics, George Carlin and Mitch Hedburg are still alive and Odin is running for president.


MchectorIIMchectorII

A world without politics,hmm and it sounds like your dream job is a connoisseur(if you enjoy wine too).What do you admire the most about those guys?

Ember69 responds:

I understand that politics has its place but its a huge road block for eople trying to just do their best in the world. I really love Carlin's attitude and intolerance for bs. Mitch was clever in the simplest way. Both are absolutely hilarious comics.


MchectorIIMchectorII

2016-04-09 22:47:03

Ah,those are really some admirable qualities and I think I see why you like them.Comedians always bring out the lighter side of the reality that we don't really see too often.What about Odin?He is THE God of Knowledge and not another comedian,right?

Ember69 responds:

Well the Odin thing was part of a really funny picture I found online. It says:

"The left wing said they'd abolish poverty, right wing said they'd abolish bureaucracy, Odin said he'd abolish ice giants. Where are the ice giants? Vote for Odin.

It's not at all a serious standpoint on politics.

Your answer reminded me of this song:https://www.youtube.com/watch?gl=SG&v=jHPOzQzk9Qo&hl=en-GB

Ember69 responds:

HAHA! Monty Python. So very true.

Who knows,stand-up comedy could be your other talent.

Ember69 responds:

oh no. I'm not a comedian. I'm not anywhere near funny. Not unless people want to listen to me tell lame puns.


MchectorIIMchectorII

2016-04-13 10:04:55

Nah,it can't be that bad.C'mon,give me your best shot!

Ember69 responds:

hahaha. I'll stick with internet sarcasm and witty comebacks. Thanks for the positive vibes though :)

Anytime,miss!School has been a bit of downer,so I might as well make the best out of it.

Ember69 responds:

Man, I hear that! I'm taking an accelerated Cisco course. The Labs are killing me. Have you ever worked on something you thought you were good at and you thought you enjoyed and it was so difficult that it made you think you made a mistake for a major? That's my downer.


MchectorIIMchectorII

2016-04-15 09:52:43

Yeah,I am in an art class and at first,I thought it was more of 'do-it-your-own-way' but everyone had to learn the same thing.Still,I did learn something.I can't imagine how I'm going to face my exams.

Ember69 responds:

I couldn't stick with art because I hate being told what to do. I have an art piece from high school that I failed because we were supposed to complete the other half of the mona lisa. I didn't think it was worth my time and I didn't want to do that. I wan't to learn form and more advanced work so I drew the other half of the mona lisa as a penguin holding a bag of chips,

How have you been,miss?

Ember69 responds:

Busy. Studying and playing Pokemon go. How have you been?


MchectorIIMchectorII

2016-07-10 21:07:21

I am fine,thank you,I just finished my vacation.I often see people playing that game these days and it looks quite different from the usual Pokemon game series,so how's it like?

Ember69 responds:

It's pretty good actually. School is about to start so I am enjoying what little freedom I have. I ended up destroying my computer so I apologize for the late response.


MchectorIIMchectorII

2016-07-29 10:28:02

It's best to relax before the stress comes in again.Your computer must have been giving you a lot of trouble,huh?

Ember69 responds:

there was a lot of dust... blankets of dust. Which caused it to overheat frequently.


MchectorIIMchectorII

2016-08-13 23:58:53

Ah,so has your school term started yet?

Ember69 responds:

Sorry this is late but, yes the school term has started. Fortunately one of my classes was only 8 weeks.


MchectorIIMchectorII

2016-10-17 08:54:03

It's okay,take your time,mam.How's school so far?

Ember69 responds:

Pretty ok... I'm just throwing myself at homework to get through the degree at this point. I can't wait till I can just be done with this. How are things with you?


MchectorIIMchectorII

I'm glad that you're doing fine,well,nothing lasts forever,so all the best all the way!For me,I am almost done with a year of college,so I still have a very long way to go.I hope it isn't too late to wish you a late Happy Valentine's Day!
