Back at home after a nice quarter. Didn't have any finals, but I stuck around until Thursday of Finals Week anyway because things are a lot more active and social at school than they are here back at home...

...I realized I haven't had any good ideas or inspiration since the summer... and my ProcrastiMATIONs were sort of lame. Sigh. I wanted to create something or whatever over vacation, but I'm not really sure what I could do... maybe I'll make some MIDIs of other songs to get myself into the composing mood. Maybe I need a muse. No idea.

Like I said, I have nothing to do until I go to New York on the 23rd. So if you're doing anything, ANYTHING, like eating, or maybe breathing, invite me along. I'm good at a lot of that stuff.

If you re-read what I wrote I was thinking of making MIDIs or composing my own stuff. Like maybe not animating.

I suggest setting up some kind of compositional challenge...doesn't have to be too hard. Like, say taking one of those catchy little three or four-bar loops from older games and developing a full song out of it:

In this song the only thing that is in the original is the "bell" at ~0:21. It was originally in a soccer game.
