So that song that was just uploaded was supposed to be uploaded a while ago. It was also supposed to have drums in it. I blame the internet.
So it's been a while since the last upload I suppose. A few months at least. But it's a busy year for me. So what's up? I have a sore throat, and my lady friend most likely has the flu.
Oh, and NEW SONG THIS WEEKEND!
I've recruited two awesome guys, well...one awesome guy and his little brother to help join me in THE REAL GATSBYS. Their names are Julian Schuessler and Dustin Schuessler Shoeslur.
So anyways, we're borrowing some good equipment and recording a new song this weekend. Hopefully everything will work out alright.
Thanks for listening to the first song by the way.
I'm starting my last year in high school, yeah I'm a youngun, and essentially I'm really busy with a ton of stuff. I fell in love last year, and then got my heart broken so hopefully more good material will come from that. I started DJing, so maybe I'll post some mixes if I get the time? But I started a solo-ish project, I'm looking for friends to join me, but I call it THE REAL GATSBYS, and it's a step away from my moody music and more of a poppy, upbeat music. I hope you like my shit, if not get fucked. Love always, Jake
Nothing new is going on except I'm still working on getting new members in 88 MPH!!! and I started my own record company...nbd

One could say that I am a music junkie. I like to listen to a lot of music, and Newgrounds is one of the best sites to do it. One of my favorite genres to play and listen to is punk rock. So I checked out the punk portal on Newgrounds and I was sick with what I heard. Somewhere around 80% of the selections were 2:00 minutes of looped tracks off of Punk-o-Matic or even worse, a synth! This is just plain unacceptable. Punk is know as the D.I.Y. genre. D.I.Y. stands for Do It Yourself. Having synthesized punk music is completely contradictory. Punk should be real people playing real instruments, not one man and his computer generator of fast paced beeps and bops. What's even worse is that people applaud "punk artists" who post their "punk music" in the punk portal. It is now my mission to record my band and put it up here to school you bitches in what punk music really is. Just remember the fun little saying: "Robots don't rock." Don't get me wrong I love techno, rave, dub-step, trance, dance, etc. But it shouldn't be in the same portal as punk. The same problem is occurring in the "heavy metal" portal. I wish Newgrounds would make a separate portal for real metal, because when I listen to metal, I like bands that scream, not sing. Then again when I look for metal on Newgrounds I come up with cyber goth, trance-doom metal shit with NO vocals or guitars. Satan would be ashamed! I'll stop my rant here but please, next time you write something that rocks, make sure it's not synthesized!
my favorite bands would be
1. Modest Mouse
3. Norma Jean
4. Foxboro Hot Tubs
i also like bands such as placebo, nirvana, julien-k, taking back sunday, and other bands of that sort.
