Pressure Measuring


The boss battle music for Meridian Knights. Based off an old tune from a while ago, and I drew a tiny amount of inspiration from the Mario and Luigi series while trying to have a composition that both set the mood and won’t ruin concentration during an intense battle. Technically written with a church organ and clarinet in mind, but hey, chiptunes are magic. Or just the genre I decided on for the game.

A New Look.

Don’t mind me. I’ve just spent a little time tidying up around here.
Hope you like the new look! Pardon any mess left over.

I Like Martians

Did you take a moment to stop by Damn It, Monkey!? Well, Act 1 of Episode 1, “I Like Martians” is up and ready to be read, like some sort of 7 minute cartoon waiting in comic form. Check it out, hopefully you see the waste of time as a pleasant diversion rather than a sinkhole of ennui.

Damn It Monkey!: Of Episodes and Acts

One of the reasons I revived this was, upon reflecting on its last run, Damn It, Monkey! Just didn’t work the way I wanted it to. Ratboy works great as a serial, but this comic lost a lot as a serial. At its heart, it’s a parody, and the format needs retained as episodic in format.

Before rebooting it, I really deliberated on this one specific fact. How do I do a web comic that’s 30+ pages that need posted at a time? My schedule doesnt really allow me to churn these out as regularly as I’d like at this point. And so it occurred to me, why not post each episode in acts? I mean, any proper episode of something has three acts, and if I’ve done my job as a writer (I know I sometimes don’t quite hit that mark), then three acts it is.

Very soon – within a week or two (ideally! no promises) I’ll have act 1 of I Like Martians ready to go.
…No matter what Arby’s says about it.

Meridian Knights Music: Thə Huntər Bəcoməs Thə Huntəd


Another fun tune from Meridian Knights.
There’s really not a lot to talk about here. Other than Schwa was named Schwa because their name was originally going to be *Annoyed Grunt* but I went with Schwa because it’s a bit subtler. So obviously it follows schwa sounds make its way into the title of the song.
The music is a bit more intense than your typical wood theme, but the idea of Schwa’s level is that they are literally hunting you throughout the entire stage. That’s the basis of what I was going for and it may not entirely fit but hey whatever.
