Still animating Don’t Mine at Night OH MY GOD IT’S GETTING FREAKING DONE JUST THREE MORE SHOTS.
Yeah yeah, I know. “Is this blog just about streams now?”
Until this music video animation is completed, yes, I’m afraid you have to deal with it for some more time.
So, my friend ShadyVox is kind of in a bad financial situation and could lose his internet, if not more. I can’t go into details because it’s kind of a personal problem but If you want to know more, you can ask him.
As you might now, he’s my working partner, he’s the voice of Button Mash and the sound/music designer of most of my newest videos including Don’t Mine at Night and Button’s Adventures, and he kinda needs some support right now.
He’s open to take commissions for any kind of sound-related material, such as voice-acting, sound engineering and music composing for your projects.
If you don’t have any projects, you can also support him by buying his songs on Bandcamp.com for just one dollar or more depending on how much you feel generous.
Here’s the link to check his stuff and possibly buy albums and songs from him.
About the commissions, you can contact him on his website here:
And, in case you are so kind to just throw money at him without asking for anything in return, you can donate to his paypal which is probably confidential and just for bussiness, but you can stil contact him and ask for it through his website.
Thank you for reading, and thank you in advance for supporting my friend in this situation.
Until next time,
Went to assistance, they saw the hard disk and all its data is intact but for some reason the computer doesn’t turn on so it must be an OS problem.
They are gonna make a complete backup and change the defective hard disk on my Mac just in case and they’re gonna install the most recent Operative System on it, then make a complete check-up and change everything that is not working well or good enough like video/audio board or the screen.
Funny thing I found out my AppleCare cover ends on October 30th, so it’s still on warranty and all of this won’t create extra charges.
Long story short, I’ll have my mac and all my data back in a week or so plus an extra 2TB HDD that I’ll use as a constant and real-time back-up plus 4 more GB RAM for a total of 8GB RAM. Everything for just 260 euros. (Around 290 USD)
I’ll still be able to work on Don’t Mine at Night in the meanwhile, but chances are that it won’t be completed in time for its planned release date which is October 25th.
It’s all for now,
Jan signing off.
Turned on my computer today to stare at a blank white loading screen. (Yes I have a Mac, you can laugh now.)
Called assistance, told me it’s a callback by Apple since they noticed some of the iMacs sold between October 2009 and July 2011 could have a defective HDD and so they have to be brought in assistance for free substitution.
Point is I don’t know if the HDD has been blocked for this reason or if it’s just a coincidence and it decided to fail today.
I will try to connect my Mac to another computer as an external hard disk with a firewire 600 cable and see if I can access my data and make a backup. If not, I have to hope they can do that in Assistance but it could not be possible.
If so, well, I probably lost all my data. That means every in-progress project plus work and personal data are gone. What a beautiful moment for something like this to happen, right? Not only I had a deadline for Don’t Mine at Night, but I was close to finish one of my best works yet.
Farewell, until new updates on the matter.
PS: If my data will be retrievable, I’ll probably leave Apple and go back to windows by making myself an alienware or some other powerful shit like that just because I feel like to.
If you want to donate something to guarantee better assistance and data retrieving/new computer, you can throw some money at my paypal account email@example.com, but I suggest you to wait for more updates on this matter first.
