Bandcamp Bandwagon

Hey, readers.  Finally signed up for bandcamp.  Now, I can follow the artists that I like on there instead of bookmarking their pages.  Don't know why I didn't think to sign up sooner.  Anyway, I wanted to talk about a couple of bands that I recently started following.

The first one is October Burns Black.  A gothic rock band consisting of artists from other bands in the scene.  They described the tracks on their debut album, fault line, as a nod to the past with a distinctly forward looking orientation.  The band draws influences from death, living and dreams.  The other band that I want to talk about is Astari Nite.

Astari Nite hails from Miami, Florida.  Their sound is a mix of post-punk and new-wave.  Through their semi-cinematic productions, they explore the themes of magic, melancholy, love and submission.  These bands are worth scoping out.  So, I highly suggest you do so.

I caught wind of October Burns Black and Astari Nite from the youtuber, Skullgirdle.  You can check out her channels here and here.  Til next time.

Creeping from the Shadows

Hey, readers.  Couldn't really think of anything to blog about and didn't really feel like blogging at all.  So, I went silent for all of August.  Was mostly active on facebook, twitter and instagram.  If you don't already follow me on those platforms, I suggest doing so.

August wasn't a total bust.  Toward the end of the month, I went to a craft meet-up.  The people I met were nice and I got a lot of compliments on the jewelry that I made.  A good time was had and I'm looking forward to attending more in the future.  Here are some of the pieces that I made at the meet-up.

I gave the winged heart earrings and necklace to my niece.  I kept the other pair of earrings for myself.  On to other news.  Since my mother had birthday this month, I decided to make a matching charm bracelet that goes with the charm anklet that I made for her last year.  Luckily, I had enough chain left over.

I also made her a pair of earrings.

Sorry for the month of radio silence.  I always say that I'm going to try to blog more.  But that keeps falling through.  Definitely need to work on that.  Til next time.
