One of my watchers on DA was cheering me on and drew me something cute, so I wanted to do something for her as thanks, thus I drew her original character.  Good practice for the coming art influx, you bet.

I’m working my way through my current art batch, which is one of the larger batches I’ve had in a long while.  It makes me wonder how many of these upcoming pictures will be surprises?  We shall see, we shall see.

Title: Overture Artist: Disparition 1,446 plays




If I am told to delete this post, then I gladly will. The last thing I want is to cause trouble with WtNV as that is not my intent at all.

I’m posting this for two reasons. One: if you were wondering what that new Disparition track was that played while Cecil read the Community Calendar in The University of What It Is, it derives from this. Two: you all need to take five minutes to listen to this.

Overture is, by far, my favorite Disparition song. It’s the song that made me fall in love with them. This song made me feel…moved. I wanted to cry. I wanted to smile. I wanted to listen.

I know some people get bored with instrumental tracks, but please, give this one a good, long, listen. I promise you, you will not regret it.

In some ways, I think this is a better sort of theme song for WtNV than The Ballad of Fiedler and Mundt. I don’t want it to replace Ballad, but when I think of Night Vale, I think of this song. It’s melancholy and somber, but as soon as the violin comes in, it just feels right.

Also, it’s super fun to play this before you start a WtNV episode. It just sets the mood, y’know? Anyways, if you made it this far, thanks for indulging me in my rambles. I’ll write more if people want me to.

Hello I thought I should give a bit of background.  This song is actually called Taran Wanderer (it was partly inspired by the YA novel of the same name, by Lloyd Alexander), and I rearranged it for strings, guitar, and piano and it was used as an overture for the October show last year (The Debate). We also played it at the Condos show but that version was not recorded.  I made a “video” for the song (I shot some footage with my phone while Deepthi was driving us around in North Wales) which you can watch here:

Additionally the song has a “sequel” of sorts, you can listen to the whole sequence here:

It’s time for another status update, with an early October edition.

I’ve been relatively quiet for over a month, in relation to sharing new thoughts and signs of productivity such as artwork, and for that delay, I apologize.  It was not my intention to slow down as much as I did.

A lot of things offline struck me down into the realm of anxiety and insomnia, and the result was my getting the flu for the second time this year and preventing me from functioning for weeks, again.  Considering this was the third time I’ve ever had the flu, it was an unfortunate reminder that stress can indeed mess you up on a physical level if you’re not careful.

During my recovery time, I have been able to continue sketching out the current batch of art I’m on.  If I can work on everything successfully, I’ll have at least a dozen new pictures to show in the near future before attacking the next batch, depending upon how quickly I can get through them and how much free time I’ll have.  This batch includes fan art, gift art, and original content.  The above collage is a vague sample of one portion of the sketches I’ve been working on.

Thank you for sticking around and being patient with me.  It means a lot more than I’m capable of expressing at the moment.

Title: Rockleetist x Ashe - Bad Apple (English) 6,599 plays

Ever on and on I continue circling
With nothing but my hate in a carousel of agony
Till slowly I forget and my heart starts vanishing
And suddenly I see that I can’t break free—I’m
Slipping through the cracks of a dark eternity
With nothing but my pain and the paralyzing agony
To tell me who I am, who I was
Uncertainty enveloping my mind
Till I can’t break free, and—

The moody piano piece I was asking about yesterday.

This is definitely one of my favorite background songs used in WtNV.  Would you say that it usually plays during rather meaningful, powerful scenes?  I believe so, yes.
