How about a medley with all the most memorable movie tunes, now with lyrics?

I can’t deny that the Jungle Book Medley has had disappointing views, but I guess I didn’t expect what a drop a four year long hiatus (except for one video in 2014) could do. And that it’s been four years since I posted videos semi-regularly! Crazy.

Anyway, I don’t want to give up just yet, so I went all in with this new video, worked day and night with all those background details to get it finished within a week. I want to thank Karen Graw too, for her eager help with the lyrics and collecting images for the backgrounds. Check out her graphic design work here.

I’ll keep my expectations in check this time, and simply hope that you all enjoy it. :) Feel free to share it everywhere to help it get some attention though!

(Oh, and I broke my front tooth last night when I was eating french fries. Lucky it happened AFTER filming the video. Now I should find a dentist…)

A medley of the six songs from the animated Disney classic!

Along with the release of the new Jungle Book remake, I found my way to a documentary about how they made the old classic from 1967, and I got inspired to do something with the songs from the movie! So I decided to just put them together into a simple medley and make the video within a week.

It got more ambitious than I had planned though, but I’m happy with how nice it looks at least! Even though I’ve only posted one video in the last four years, it seems like I’ve somehow still improved on the technical side.

Anyway, I hope you like it! Comment and share it with your friends, if you want me to make more movie specific medleys like these! :) You can also support me at patreon.com.

The first thing I had to do once I found my apartment here in the Philippines, was to build a small recording booth! I had never done anything like it before, but it was fun, and I like the results! (Except that it gets hot quickly, hehe, so I have to use the aircon inbetween the takes.)

Now I can shout whenever I want, and the recordings get nice and dry.
Time to start making that album!

Alright, so after almost two years of radio silence, I guess it’s time to try updating this regularly again. Hello!

First I want to get the last two years out of the way: I’ve been traveling. I wanted to get away from everything, and try new things. This will be a long update with lots of pictures, and after this, I will tell you about the future. (You can hover your mouse above the pictures to see little comments, and click for full view.)

So, first I spent a few months in Israel, Italy, Malta and Morocco:

After that, a couple of months in Argentina and Uruguay:

Then a few months in Brazil:

Followed by a month or two in Paraguay, Chile, Bolivia and Peru:

Then I continued my Latin America trip through Ecuador, Colombia, Venezuela, Panama and Costa Rica. Too many stories to tell, really. If you’ve got any questions, you’re free to send me a comment/message! :)

Then I went back to Europe, and had a shorter trip through Germany, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary and Croatia. Then I stayed a month in Spain, and ended with Denmark before I returned for a short visit back in Sweden.

Now I have rented an apartment in the Philippines, and I’ve started planning/working on some new videos and a new (more pop oriented) album, which I hope people will enjoy!

That’s it! Don’t believe the rumors; I’m still alive, and still planning to do more youtube stuff, one day!

See you.

So, it’s been almost two months since the release of my second album, Brighter Skies. With no real marketing or collaborators, the start has been slow, except for the support from my lovely “fans”/friends who are seemingly always there for me. :) So thank you, again!

The reception seems to be positive though, especially from prog rock fans (it is a prog rock album after all), so I figured I’ll share reviews and comments here, both good and bad! Maybe it can help people decide if they should give the album a try or not!

And here are reviews:
9/10 review in DPRP by Nathan Waitman.
5/5 video review by Allen Thompson.
5/5 by Mxyzptlk at amazon.com.
4.5/5 by UnsaltedCatfish at sputnikmusic.com.
3.5/5 (still a positive one!) by Matt Di Giordano at progulator.com.

Also, plenty of nice reviews and ratings at progarchives.com!

Have opinions to share? Send a comment with a link or your review, and any help with spreading the word would also be appreciated! :)
