Okay.

FistShark Marketing was an unscripted comedy show set in the marketing/pr arm of a shady, possibly eldritch corporation which I produced from 2014 until last year.

The Spin-Off Doctors is an ongoing series over-examining films based on video games.

I'm also currently playing Dungeons & Dragons in the space-themed fifth season of Dice Funk. No, I do not understand the appeal of listening to people play Dungeons & Dragons.

You're telling me. I had no idea we'd both been here all that time.

The real cultural engineering project was the friends we made along the way.

Makes me wish I spoke German - I doubt Google Translate is doing your work much justice!

Have you set any to music?


Yeah, I wouldn't just post German poems here :D

Does the play button not show up at the top? And then there's the breadcrumbs at the top right leading to:

http://a.sandboxx.org/johann/music/

(also notice the "instrumental" and "rap" tags to the right, as well as the "Lala" subfolder which is just music)

The audio player doesn't work on mobile devices I think (I probably could make it, but I don't wanna lel), and since recently skipping in tracks doesn't work in Firefox anymore (though I changed nothing, and it works in Chrome). If you select "list" or "full" next to "display as", you still can get at the normal play buttons.

Good lord... 10 years? That is the last time I take the scenic route home.

Anyway:
  • I'm 42 now, soon to be 43. (I found a post here where I was bitching about turning 28. *shakes head*)
  • Still married to the same amazing woman
  • Still have four step-children, though we are now glorious empty nest types
  • I have 9 grandchildren and counting... 9. I have a baseball team in grandchildren.
  • Still with the same company, but as a manager of multiple teams doing coding and remote software training type things


All of which is to say, it was a good decade. I live a good life with lots of love, laughter, and occasional bouts of good-natured swearing.
And the horse you rode in on...

I came up with a rapper name last summer, so though I'm approaching 40 I'm about ready to bust into the rap biz yo. No seriously, I spent over a decade working on stuff on and off (it used to kinda drain me, and it took years to get a skin thick enough for the kind of lyrics I can't help but write). Most of the work went into making it not seem like that, as if the music was really lazily made and the raps just the first take without outright mistakes in it, that's on purpose :P The one thing I still haven't done is clearly separate sampled stuff from what I fully own... the idea to get rid of those speech samples in the intros breaks my heart. But I know I have to. On the other hand, the idea of leaving all that to producers and just rapping kinda thrills me.

Most sound kinda bad, but these two I like for example:

http://a.sandboxx.org/johann/4151/

http://a.sandboxx.org/johann/3903/

All that started out with me writing something "against Bush" on the Flipside forum during the build-up for the Iraq war. Then later I wrote an English "poem" there, and that translated to German was the basis for what are still some of my favourite lyrics.. my favourite version of that atm would be this one I guess ^^

It took me ages to not hate everything I made all the time haha... it's still kinda shitty, but I made peace with that. For me it's about the lyrics anyway, not so much about music you listen to all the time, that would be depressing.


I really like those Johann. I like the first a bit better but I liked them both. I wish I could understand. I love hearing the German language.

That is my favourite and least expected aspect in all of this, that people could actually enjoy this as music and the language without speaking it!

I keep saying I want to translate my lyrics, but I also keep procrastinating that.. but when I do, I'll let you know! But I already started to move stuff to dedicated profile, And the stuff with sampled beats I only put on soundcloud anyway, for example: https://soundcloud.c...ingfield-spooky
