To begin, I received news today that I have been selected to participate in the Newgrounds Audio Deathmatch, along with 63 others. My group, in particular, has me going against @Jimmypig, @ChronoNomad and @Guylee.
The highest scorer from this group gets to top 16, and this is going to be possibly my toughest contest yet. At any rate, I'll take this news as stoically as I can, and chip away at the song over the next two weeks. I have Kingdom Hearts, LocoRoco, a bit of Star Trek and various other things on Spotify playing in the background at different points of the day -- hopefully I may draw some inspiration.
Congrats to everyone who made it, and to everyone who decided to take a shot in the dark and audition -- it's a very brave thing to do.
I recently hit 300 fans -- I think it was yesterday -- and it's lovely to have reached another small milestone. ^_^
It may not be much, but I'd like to put in a quick thank-you to everyone who has stood by me thus far. Thanks for the support, for the mixing advice, everything.
Before I call it a day and decide on a piece of music to work on, I have a little something I'd like to share with all of you. You will likely not see this elsewhere.
Let's just say, despite being of Indian descent, I never wore a sari in my entire life... until not too long ago. Seán and I were invited to a wedding -- and in preparation for it, I was lost on what dress to wear (like any woman). So Seán suggested a sari, because he thought I'd look good in one -- and we spent goodness knows how long browsing catalogues, looking for the right one.
After three sessions with an Indian friend of Seán's, I was finally able to dress myself up in one. While I admit I do like how it looks, I will flat out say it's a pain to wear and walk in.

Alright. That's it. Tonight is celebration night; I shall not procrastinate for the next thirteen days. I'm looking forward to sharing my Round 1 song with you when it is complete!
