    I know a lot of people say that a Kingdom Hearts movie would be good to see, and it would. But I feel a book would be better. As much fun as it would be to see the action scenes and the worlds that are visited, a book would be able to deal with plot exposition and dive into the characters that a movie never would manage.
    Of course, it all depends on the skills of those making the movie. There are ways to show a characters feelings without words, after all. Maybe it's just my preference of books over movies.

    I remember, back in 2017, I got to ask Christian Whitehead a question at PAX AUS at a panel he was in regarding classic video game characters. “What makes a classic video game?” I asked, “The gameplay, the characters, the story?”
    “Love,” he answered. “Lots and lots of love. Some of the most iconic video games out there were a labour of love and passion by developers for their project.”
    A year and a half later, that still sticks with me. I try to let his words guide me with the projects I wish to make, because I can feel those words are right. He has shown it himself, and provided other examples with it, and I have found more examples myself after the fact.
    Passion and love for the project... It applies to more than games.
    These were just random memories of mine.

    Moving on up y'all! I was named an official contributor to Sonic Paradox this morning! But not just a contributor . . . I guess I'm kinda running the whole music department now! (there's not many of us atm. That's about to change)
    Now I know what you're thinking. Doesn't it already count since you're in Sonic Legacy? Well, only sorta actually. Legacy is a branch of Paradox itself, something bigger.
    It's quite the honor. I've been following these guys since high school, back before Sonic Paradox was Sonic Paradox, when everyone was their own independent. It's something I've actually wanted to be a part of for many years now. This is my chance! I'm going to do my best, just as always!
    What a neat day

    I've got a lot going on lately. The Sonic Legacy Eggman theme has hit 6,000 listens and the Legacy channel itself has just passed 3,000 subscribers. I'm pretty happy about that. With that and the Legacy Theme itself, I'll be free for a while. I've also got a commission request going, and it's doing ok. But I'm gonna need to keep the ideas fresh, and the music juices flowing, so I'm gonna do another remix. I'm nearing 100 songs, and I've got some big plans for that #100. Things are getting exciting in the world of Pauly B. And I'm loving it. That being said, let's start what may eventually end up as #99
    STARTING PROJECT: Sonic Advance - Secret Base (2% complete)
    6 minute track 90%, Editing 10%
    Had a tune pop into my head for a sick remix of this. I was thinking of practicing some other styles when I came up with it. Perfect for something like this. I want this to sound like an actual secret base, so I'm pumping up the dramatics with this one. It's slowed down to 116 BPM for now, where I might speed it up just a tad bit, but definitely stay in this area. LOTS of percussion planned. I start to think of Sean Callery, composer for many of my favorite dramas like "24" and "Bones". I had this same inspiration when I wrote "Imagine That", a recent track I contributed to Aaron Webber's indy project, where I made my very own electronic percussive drum kit. And it worked out so well, I'm using it again. I'm going to be treating this as a side project for now, as there is a priority or two I should spend most of my focus on. But still . . . it's different, and I think y'all will still like it.

    NEW PROJECT: Sonic Forces - Sunset Heights (0% complete)
    Target 6 minutes (90%) Editing (10%)
    I'm doing this remix for Sonic Legacy to use in the video of their first issue. The only stipulations are that it has to be "beachy" and I have to time it with the story and the voice acting. I've been coming up with a few ideas over the past few days but I haven't had much time to actually get it down. Work has been pretty hectic as of late. Well now's my chance! Also, I love remixing Ohtani's work because we pretty much share the same Drum 'n Bass genre as our strongpoint. It leaves a lot of room for innovation.

    I worry that rushing a drawing will greatly effect the quality. With the contest I wanted to enter, I forgot to take into account the different time zones. So the deadline was going to be much sooner.
    Had to cancel sleep but I did get something that looks like a finished piece of art done in time.

    We know five of the seven zones that will be in TSR, and I'm going to go there once again. Four of the five tracks from Sonic R fit inside those zones. Is it too much to think that a space zone will be one of the seven zones to fit the last track?

    My first official contribution to Sonic Legacy! I decided to take on the task of composing a theme for Dr. Eggman in this up-and-coming web-series! The point was to make a mix of sound styles, with the orchestral Eggman theme from Sonic ’06, an intense feeling from Eggman’s theme from Sonic Adventure 2, and my own little twist of Drum ‘n Bass. It features a few orchestral MIDIs along with plenty of customized synths, and completely original lyrics.
    Trumpets and strings in the beginning to give it a darker feel before it really pops off. The YEEHAW was inspired by Dr. Robotnik’s Mean Bean Machine, as that was his line in the game. I’m learning quite a bit by just exploring equalizers and finding new sounds, and learning how to better adjust then in-pattern. Hence the futuristic sounding synths. Tried to keep it intense, what I really pictured was a hostile robot takeover in action. Something that fits the attitude that lets you know that Eggman means business.
    I received a lot of external help from the Sonic Legacy crew, fixing up knicks and smoothing things over. It took quite a bit of time and a lot of extra ears to oversee that this is as good as it can get. I am a little nervous about how well my voice is going to go over. I tried my best to sing it out and edit it properly. I even learned a few things along the way, mostly about how most raw files need to be compressed to even things out. I spent a lot of time editing each and every individual waveform, every consonant and vowel. I am now more easily identifying starts and ends, and I’m paying attention to every detail down to the last 1/1000th of a second to keep it smooth and not jumpy. It helps
    Eggman Army come forth! Arise! Get down to the jams and party it up robot style! And hey . . . thanks for the listen! Here’s to the future! Don't forget to check out everything Sonic Legacy at https://tapas.io/series/Sonic-Legacy and join the Discord channel at https://discord.gg/tdxmJv2 
    LYRICS:
    YEE-HAW!
    You’ve taken everything
    I used to be, away from me
    You left me broken down and shaken
    It’s boiling up inside
    This pain I feel’s become so real
    It hurts so much and I can’t take it
    My vengeance is burning
    You will see a side of me I just can’t hide
    My time is approaching
    You could never stop me even if you try
    Keep your fear
    Take your sorrow
    It’s too late for you to leave it all behind
    And when you see my face, you will know your place
    You will pay when I take over for all time
    When the world is mine (x2)
    Now I'm coming and I'm headed your way
    There's nothing you can change, nothing you can say
    I'm gonna take over and it starts today (x2)
    LET'S GO!
    Keep your fear
    Take your sorrow
    It’s too late for you to leave it all behind
    And when you see my face, you will know your place
    You will pay when I take over for all time
    When the world is mine (x4)
    WHEN THE WORLD IS MINE!

    Here he is dropping in to set the theme for all of my January art, so if I get to more art this month expect to see characters dropping in in any number of ways. Meanwhile hope everyone enjoys this Sonic pic even as I bemoan his left foot. Feet are so hard to draw right some days 🤣
