Last post of the year! Week 7 out of 10 of the Blink-182 covers: "M+M's [Instrumental]", some WIP website updates + a new PRESS webpage, Happy Holidays from JabunAudio + more!
Hi everyone! It's a little early this week as JabunAudio shuts its door for the winter (until January 9th) at the end of the day, but I hope you're excited as I am for this week's final blog post of 2017! I figured I should take a break to focus on resting up while I'm away so there will be no blog posts until I return, though expect to see an update or two on Facebook in the mean time. It's been yet another busy week (and a productive one at that), getting more of my to do list cleared up before I head off, including some website updates (more on that in a moment), and some Better Than The Book writing (only 3 tracks left to finish now). First of all though this week, it's time for the 7th week of Blink-182 covers to celebrate 4 years with my lovely girlfriend Eva. Let's get started!
This week it's an instrumental cover of one of my favorite early Blink-182 tracks, "M+M's"! Not really much to say about it as I seem to say the same thing every week, but I hope you enjoy it, and stay tuned next week for "Wasting Time", although admittedly since there'll be no blog posts during the holidays, I'll be posting the next couple (if not all the rest of them) in the first blog post of the new year. If you can't wait until then (and even if you can), feel free to subscribe to the HurpADervish YouTube channel directly to keep up to date with them all as they come out. Hope you enjoy the cover and see you again for more of these in the new year!
Next and lastly for the main news this week, I finally took some more time out to work on fixing up the JabunAudio website! Earlier this year I started a major redesign of the site, but other projects and commitments took me away from completing it as early as I'd hoped. Although it's still incomplete as it is, I've taken the time this week to add in all the previous pages which although unfinished are now accessible and feature a small, "Under Construction" note. These incomplete pages (Home, Services, Portfolio, Music, Videos, Games) have been added to the navigation bar at the top of the website but are denoted with a "*" to let you know that they still require some work. I hope to have them all sorted in the early months of the new year as soon as possible! Onto some more complete updates for the website though, the Sound Effects page which is merely a link to the JabunSamples Pond5 Library is back and up and running, and following the latest interview with Live A Little Bit Louder last week I've also created a JabunAudio Press page (mirror on the Nick Standing HUB website) which features links to all the interviews, awards, and special features I've received with my work. I hope you enjoy exploring it, and here's to hoping that the list gets even longer in 2018!
That's all there is to report in this blog post and for the rest of the year here on JabunAudio! Since I head away tomorrow, there'll likely be not much audio news to report in the next blog post (which'll be on Thursday 11th January 2018, after only 2 days of being back), so it'll be an extra special blog post reflecting on the achievements of 2017, setting some new goals for 2018, maybe sharing holiday stories, and of course more cover songs (maybe some other stuff too). Wishing you a very happy holiday from JabunAudio, I hope you all have a great end to 2017, start to 2018 and thank you all so much for another great year supporting JabunAudio and my various projects. Looking forward to getting back to it in 2018 and see you all on Thursday 11th January! Take care!
Nick Standing; HurpADervish; Jabun!
