Inbetween my job and my marriage there is only room for diversion. However, gather enough diversion with minimal distraction and every so often you get something called Product. I’m excited to be able to share with the inu faithful some concrete details about my current projects. Scratch that, I’ve been dying to tell you about this shit. I can hold it in no longer. Splurge.
1) The new Yochien Ronin song is called “In Search of the Search Party” and will likely be updated on the MySpace player in August alongside the acoustic version of “Taisetsu na Mono” we played for the Jrock Choice Awards. “Search Party~” is my favorite thing we’ve done so far. I’m tempted to describe it as celestial pop punk. People who liked “Santa~” may be surprised by the levity.
I had Steph, cook me up some bad ass art to use for general promotion purposes. Jamie is working on the MySpace reboot and when that comes together we’ll have more stuff for you.
2) I’m collaborating on a number of short original episodes for an internet TV show likely to be released to a MySpace or Youtube channel (near you). We’re currently moving into the production stages, and I hope to have more news (including the title of the show and some teasers) on this front soon, soon-ish.
3) I’ve recently dug up a project called YANBARUKUINA! I was working on when I was writing “Let’s Speak Jrock!” for purple SKY magazine. It’s a semi-autobiographical manga, which would take episodes from my own personal experience living in Japan and translate them to the world of comics. I’d like to test the waters by collaborating on three 3-6 page standalone episodes (most likely for the web through the inu) that could act as a prequel should people respond favorably. What I need is artists. So if you are or know anyone who is interested in working on something real. Lemme know.
