Oh my gosh... The last few weeks have been SOOO CRAZY AWESOME!!! :D

Where to begin?

Ok, first off... I'M OUT OF THE NAVY!!! :squee: :happycry: :squee:
(Well, I'm on terminal leave anyway, which means that I'm still technically employed by the USN until my EAOS of October 7th. I just don't have to go on base/wear a uniform/cut my hair/etc.)

Second, I can now officially tell you all that I'm now officially living in Vancouver, Canada officially! :nod: (Was trying to keep it on the DL until it became official. :P)

But what I'm REALLY excited about are all of the exciting new projects underway! 
Including a ton of new stuff with Michelle Creber, and a new album with my brother BAASIK to be released by Christmas! :la:
(We hope to release the first song on the album by this Saturday, the 21st!!)

Also, later this week, I'll be getting together with Andrea Libman and the Creber's to film a bit for our "Beat It" parody!
So far, we have recorded Tabitha St Germain, Cathy Weseluck, Peter New, Andrew Francis,  Maddy Peters, Claire Corlett, and of course Michelle Creber making cameos
(with more on the way).
So this should be an EPIC video by the time it's finally released! :la: 
(I can't wait for you to hear Andrea's verse! It's SOOOOOO cute!! :aww: )

I'm also recording something fun with Tabitha St. Germain tomorrow. It should be up on her website in a few days. I'll put a link here when it's done. :)

Well, that's about it for now. I can't WAIT to start releasing projects! The next few months are gonna be :iconrdsoawesomeplz:

WUB WOO!! :love:

~Gryph

Crap, I usually have something for you in these things, but I don't have anything done yet... Errr... 
Here... have a cute vine by Tabitha: vine.co/v/hnqp0zZYZ3Q :shrug:

OOH WAIT!!
I just remembered! I did a song with Nate (BAASIK) a few months ago that I never officially released on my channel! 
You can listen to that if you want! :nod:
  • Listening to: the sound of Freedom!
  • Reading: ...how could I be reading? I'm typing!
  • Watching: my fat fingers attempt to type
  • Playing: with rattlesnakes is stupid.
  • Eating: firecrackers is not a healthy habit
  • Drinking: Good idea!

Huzzah! IN... OUT THE NA...VY? Yes you can... not sail... the seven seas? Never mind. Congratulations on your new steps in life! If I ever make it to Vancouver in the near future and see you I'd shake your hand so hard. Perhaps some of your talent would transfer to me! Ha!

Okay I saw a post on Twitter about you and Michelle asking places to do concerts and I wanted to know about somewhere in New York, close to it's capital, Albany.

(This is probably a pointless comment but I don't use Twitter so yeaahhhh....)

Welcome to Vancouver!! :D or should I say home of the Vanhoover Brony group? :3

I hope you're getting settled in nicely with no problems and that you had a good trip up here.

I live in Burnaby so if you have any questions, please feel free to ask :D

Vancouver is where all the MLP staff lives. (Well, everyone except Tara Strong)

:iconredwallfanforever:
redwallfanforever Featured By Owner Oct 21, 2013
Tara is Canadian even though she's living in America right now right? She's still one of our famous voice actresses.

Um are you sure all the staff lives in Vancouver? Andrea comes from Ottawa so I wouldn't know if she's here unless she moved here.
Reply
:iconblackgryph0n:
BlackGryph0n Featured By Owner Oct 22, 2013
Yeah Tara is Canasian, but she's been living in LA for a while now.
I know Andrea is close by, cause she's visited a few times to film stuff and it doesn't take her long to get here. But I've never been to her place, so I'm not sure exactly where she lives. :shrug:
Reply
:iconredwallfanforever:
redwallfanforever Featured By Owner Oct 23, 2013

She's still Canadian to people like Gabriel no matter what US city she lives in. Also did you do a typo? It's Canadian, not Canasian.

 

You may get lucky, heck you're lucky enough to get both Tabitha and Michelle onscreen for your latest subscriber celebration special in your own house!

BlackGryph0n Featured By Owner Oct 23, 2013
Oh yeah, *Canadian. My bad.

Lucky? Well, I've been working with the Crebers for over a year now, and I've known Tabitha for even longer, so it's more like friendship than luck. :P
But Tara is on board with Tweet It, just waiting on getting her footage. :nod:

:iconredwallfanforever:
redwallfanforever Featured By Owner Oct 23, 2013

Well people like me consider it luck because it's hard to interact with famous people like that besides online social media. As for friendship with them, that's a big accomplishment that I wish to try too.

 

Ah, so that's the title. Is Tara shooting her footage in the US and then emailing it to you?

Totally! I often drive downtown with the Crebers! :nod:
My schedule is kind of unpredictable and hectic now, but there is a good chance that you could bump into me! :D

Thanks for letting me know! I'm thinking of writing this song based off a new artist I just discovered in 2013 recently and wondered if you'd be interested in video helping me?

 

Although I'm not sure what your car looks like to spot in the downtown area while I'm walking past places like GoldenAge Collectables.

Ahh...so you're still in the navy. Means you have time to see if ya like being a civilian, if not, you can always re-enlist. Hey, and you can still wear the uniform to impress the ladies when you go out. Not bad.

The question, then, isn't whether you're ready for Vancouver; Is Vancouver ready for you.

(One tip: If you're gonna blend in, learn to spell words with a 'u' in them.)

Good luck and have fun in very cold and rainy Vancouver. (Look out for bears - real ones.)

(P.S. I think I have the first question on the Canadian Citizenship Exam. But ya need to study a bit. It's tricky.)
