  1. I figured I might as well post something here just because there is no reason not to. So I ran out of space on my old soundcloud and lost my pro unlimited plan due to lack of money, but I have since started a new soundcloud for myself. Here it is... This was written during my time here at the library in Buffalo in the last week or two. I am still homeless unfortunately and I lost all of my ids and shit, but I am slowly trying to get everything back on track. If you don't like the kind of music I am making or it's poorly produced, please don't be upset at me because I really do not ha
  2. I am all for psychedelics becoming a topic of interest in relation to mental health in people. I too believe they can do enormous good on this planet in the way they can make one re-examine themselves and their place in the world. For those who suffer from being too in the limelight, psychedelics might be a good retreat away from society long enough to realize that their lot in life is not so bad.
  3. Currently listening to Salsa Celtica - El Camino from the library and I am immediately transported to another time and place earlier in the summer when I was getting nuked in Niagara Falls and people were dead, or so I thought.

    Why go to Europe when you can spend time in western New York instead?!
  5. Currently hogging some free wifi at a Target, trying to figure out how I can let people know I am still alive even though I am still homeless and still having problems with finances even though my tax returns came in and I have some money on hand for the time being.
  6. So once again I am just sitting here in the central library in downtown Buffalo contemplating my options. I managed to purchase a pair of headphones despite having little to no money so there's that going for me. I really do begin to wonder what in god's name happened to the world. I am very lucky to be alive right now and yet I have so little left of my life. I don't know. I found a website that emulates a Linux environment with LMMS on it so I might fiddle with that or perhaps go get my bike repaired. Just another day living life in a sort of quasi twilight zone daze. At least I will kn
  7. I'm just hanging around the central library here in Buffalo, NY pinging domain names and smiling way too much.
  8. Hey, I just came here to say that I cannot ping the host and this is because there is an effort to secure that particular host since it was compromised. Do not despair! You and Fabien will receive ownership of everything again in the near future. The authorities are on the case.

  9. And here is where it all began for me... https://www.facebook.com/pg/Rubys-Plexus-Adventure-457396631118738/posts/?ref=page_internalhttps://www.facebook.com/pg/Rubys-Plexus-Adventure-457396631118738/posts/?ref=page_internal
  10. https://www.amnesty.org/en/latest/news/2019/11/google-facebook-surveillance-privacy/ It seems Amnesty International has just confirmed what we all needed to hear.
  11. Sometimes I wonder, but I think all of the mysteries and unanswered questions come down to nothing but Perspective. What's yours?
  12. So the Shield Act of New York came through for me! Apparently I can no longer be found and connected with through VR. It worked. Please save yourselves! Please!
  13. Hello everyone. It has come to my attention recently that there is a major problem around the globe and it has to do with Facebook, and to a lesser extent Google. They have been active in launching something referred to as RCS or Rich Communication Services. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rich_Communication_Services This has been responsible for connecting people to one another in ways they should not. It allows for an exchange of thoughts and also enables others to monitor and probe you. I have seen too many people lose their lives due to this insanity to just sit around and forget that s
  14. Hello everyone! I wanted to let you all know about what has been happening to me. So about 2 and a half years ago I was living in Buffalo, New York working as a programmer when my boss inadvertently forced me to take time away from work due to my concerns regarding a security audit at the company. He forced me to see a doctor and get approval to return to work. At that time it was my parents in Cranberry Twp, Pennsylvania who took me to live with them against my will. While I did receive permission to return to work, I only stayed at my job in Buffalo for about 5 months before I was just fired
  15. Thank you so much for that sentiment! It means a lot to me.
  16. * Feel free to use this thread to check in with everyone from time to time Hello everybody! It's been a very long time since I have been around psynews and the psytrance scene. For the last year I have barely kept up with anything going on. Unfortunately it would seem my work life invaded my personal life in well... let's just say bad ways. I will still be around here though I probably won't be anywhere near as active as I used to be. For those curious, as you can see from my soundcloud, I have been producing a ton of shorter, accessible songs mostly of the downtempo variety with the
  17. I didn't expect a compliment on a 4 year old track, but thanks.
  18. Yes, I'm plugging my own track, but I think it fits what you are looking for maybe.
  19. Because Goa Trance is one of the most unique of the edm genres. The vast majority of dance music lacks melodies, goa trance has them in spades. Most genres focus more on either long trancey compositions or quick immediate dancefloor climaxes. Goa Trance is right in the middle. You take any Chi-AD track and there is a lengthy build up. It takes a while but then it explodes and delivers. I like to think Goa Trance is in this strange middle ground where it's often dark, weird, twisted, but yet it takes you on this journey. It's catchy, there are hooks, there is songwriting that other genres d
  20. I take it there were multiple masters then? Surely shops would not put up extracts of unmastered tracks.
  21. What the hell is up with Avatar Records? Are they legit? http://www.avatar-music.com/about.html
