Been super busy. Working on a new album (or two), voice acting and writing for side money for a show premiering TODAY (Friday April 24th), being a host on @TheNewgroundsPodcast and Off the Wall on PeaceFM, as well as ordering a hard drive to replace my old dying hard-drive to move my computer's data, and soon doing that, and taking breaks on my new Playstation 4.
I released my first 2020 demo reel for my voice acting:
Piercing Lazer Album Update
Kat's laptop had broke for a little while, but she got a fix and is back at recording the vocals, and she's doing a phenomenal job on this last song. It won't be much longer, we're treating this delicately for you guys, we don't half-ass things. I hope this album does well, because the song she's recording, will be released as a single called "The Secret". I wish I could give you a release date, I want to say it'll be next month, we're making it the most for you guys.
I'll post a teaser of the album tracks soon, once she's finished. In the meantime, some of the singles from the album are already out in the Piercing Lazer BandCamp page, if you want to purchase them to support me during the pandemic, https://piercinglazer.bandcamp.com
The album cover is by the lovely @ShadowCat5150 who did an amazing job!
For the past few months (or less?) @Xinxinix has started up a podcast (but VERY different) called @GRNDSBreaking which incorporates comedy sketches with my writing and voice acting among others, between the interview bits with artists. It's good stuff, check it out:
I've always wanted to do more with writing and it feels nice to be on a writing team and get paid for it, and do more with my character Jack Serious on both this and @TheNewgroundsPodcast. I had a bunch of scripts shelved from the past 5 years, I was gonna make a one-man-show with all my characters and do comedy skits, do scripted interviews of my own characters, but lacked manpower, so I shelved it, so it's nice to be able to use those scripts, and write new ones.
They'll be coming out every few months, but if we get enough funding on Patreon, the money will come faster to hire the voice actors and writers and more people, maybe even editors to pump this out faster. Support us if you like, there's good rewards: https://www.patreon.com/GRNDSBreaking

Speaking of @TheNewgroundsPodcast...
The Newgrounds Podcast
I've been on many episodes of @TheNewgroundsPodcast lately, it's been great, on the show, @PsychoGoldfish and I had a great interview yesterday with @AlmightyHans and @Scumhouse Studios (specifically Hannah and Shaggy from the crew) to talk about Satina! The episode should be up sometime next week, but there's so much good content, and the raw audio being almost 2 hours, it MIGHT be a 2-part episode, being two episodes, maybe. I gotta edit it down and see.
I'm currently editing the interview, so that's another thing I have on my plate, I've been doing a lot. GoodL hasn't been catching much of a break lately at his job, so we've been having different people edit different episodes depending, been having issues with that, but we're managing.
In the meantime, go check out the episode we just posted yesterday, the Easter episode with too many hosts and I knew it was a bad idea and chaos ensued but it was pretty funny and Jack Serious gave out the official Jack Serious Mix of Sour Patch Kids, so that was fun and it all worked out go listen to the chaos:

Oh also we got some new logos and art stuff, we're talking about maybe doing merch. @WillKMR is killing it with the artwork, it's good stuff.
Music/Content Coming Next
I'm going to be uploading songs I did for soundtracks of cancelled video games that are a part of my music packs you can buy off my website to use for your games at https://www.realfaction.net in the Music Packs section, and there's a player with previews of the songs. The packs are usually around $5 with a good deal of music, promoting those. I won't upload a lot of them, but some in the meantime, spacing them out.
Hopefully soon I can upload that teaser of my new Piercing Lazer album, not sure when it'll be done, hopefully in the next month, or less. Then, there's my hiphop Kid Projekt album I'm working on.
In terms of voice acting, I'm trying to create a 2020 Voice Demo Reel soonm to get more paid work. Helps me while I have no job. Also, In the next week, maybe Monday or Tuesday, I'm going to do the next broadcast of my new radio show Off the Wall with Johnny K. on PeaceFM, broadcasting to a couple stations in Canada when the edited versions get sent there.
If you want your music featured on the show, shoot me a message or email OffTheWallRadio20@gmail.com. Join the live broadcasts on my Discord server: https://discord.gg/m6mWTA3
Whew....I've definitely been busy with a lot, eh? In terms of personal life, I've been in therapy and reading a book recommended by my psychologist to take better care of my life. I'm making slow progress, it's painful, but helping. Thank you all who have supported me this far, this post is pretty long. Love you guys!
