  1. So yeah it's my birthday today but sadly I won't be in the DWW today, since I'm on a little trip with my family and I'm not sure my parents are content with me waking up at 3am (don't worry, my sleep schedule is actually fine, I keep it under control) Also if Ryan is back tell him I loved Bad News! (Not sure if Ryan's back but hey, greetings to Bro Man Kyle otherwise!) So yeah, not really a topic but I was a bit late on adding my bday to the calendar and I've been called out for not telling people soon enough before Good luck on the other topics and problems, hope they get solved!

  2. Light Pollution Buildings drowning ever lower The plane takes off to hover over the renewed streets and lights below We pass through cold blue nights and other views I hear stars appear through the window glass Pale fuzzy dots and colored headlights disperse Shooting stars centering universes My headphone cord on my boarding pass My imaginary friends are sitting on the wing Passing years and waving miles take me through black skies Are there any other nyctophiles? > cosmic stairs and stars take me here upstairs, in lowercase in the comet observatory in silence i make out some droplets falling clear and crystal air surrounds me it's all so tranquil reversing back a bit i think are there any other introverts? and if so, could they message me? < Can I stand up from the discomfort and awkward rhymes? Break the unsound rhythm of these airlines? Is the seatbelt sign turned off, Or are the lights and dings just stars flickering? I look down to the aforementioned streets and lights There are street lights and houses glowing bright The globe blinks with a million flares So intricate and brilliant Taken aback by sheer stardust and the nightly life below us Who cares if the lights and buildings drown out the stars If ours light the sky up better yet? With a better pallette and distribution If it leaves architects breathless Who would care for light pollution? The lanterns set my heart ablaze How would I even paraphrase Something so amazing as this? Are there any other luminists? > A paper room with paper hearts Paper birds that huddle up Paper airplanes and imaginary time zones Paperback storybooks Sketchbooks thrown around the place Every other line trying desperately to write out and start a melody The stories I'll tell, the stories I've told My radio show with my microphone Playing back old cassettes For the people I yet haven't met I highlight the memories I'm afraid to forget To my imaginary paper friends I write love letters every now and then Are there any other storytellers? For now though, I set this place ablaze The smoke settling uncovers a window I see an airplane passing by tranquilly woven into the blue cold night And I feel warm inside Because stars don't really flicker, do they? -Matt/Cwilk
  3. Very nice to meet you! We definitely have some similarities, I love writing, am obsesssed with the idea of fictional worlds, and I'm also a Cancer!
  4. I have a joke about unemployment but it never works Also I invented a new word: Plagiarism
  5. I write another poem in the midst of midnight And the clicks of light outside rewinds the time To the signed and lined notebooks of mine The rhymes I tried so hard for back then Tomorrow I'll find the peace again Maybe write a poem midday this time And again wave to the airplanes' climb I'll visit the cabin that I saw one day Nostalgia and sandalwood that are locked away Tomorrow, when you're alone again Close your curtains and candle the lights Make some hot chocolate And while you miss the flights of whatever you were doing Enjoy the noon and the clock's ticks and tunes Enjoy a little Christmas in June The summer's nostalgic future awaits Everyone focuses on the red of Christmas so the green is overlooked anyway In the lane, the snow's not glistening But by huddling up and dwindling down the distancing sun and its tranquil twinkling Will keep you warm, enough Tomorrow, I'll move upstairs again I'll radio you the poems I write And while you kiss the sights of whatever you're doing I'll enjoy my hot chocolate and Christmas in June
  6. It was all done in an image manipulation program. I altered a screenshot of the interface. As for specifically what I did, I created the image below for the background, and implemented the rest straight on the demonstration above. I could create suitable PNGs for the logo with the gradient and the bars on the top. The rest is color manipulating, which may be problematic for some elements, though I haven't seen the actual code. Heck, you guys have the upper hand on coding knowledge so really I don't even know how hard it is to implement anything. As for the colors, I made most elements bluer (I can help out with what color for each element exactly), and I made all fonts darker except the text on the top transparent bars, which I made white. That's pretty much all. Feel free to ask about something or DM me.
  7. What ever happened to time? Seriously, I have so many memories of me just napping days away and spending 4 hours straight just fantasizing up stories. Most mornings I'd think "Man, I wonder what I'm gonna do today". Now I feel like it's "I wonder how much I'll get done today" with a much more negative tone to it most of the time. And I know a more productive mindset leads to more success and is just a part of growing up. But I'm escalating it all too far. I loathe every day, hour, sometimes even minute that I'm not doing something productive. Just last summer and fall I had a healthy enough schedule and I had enough time. I don't know, maybe it's just school and I'll get time back this summer. I hope that's the case, but I do want to get so much more done this year, so my wanted productivity is also higher. All advice and virtual hugs are welcome. Signed, Matt/Cwilk
  8. Now I'm not one to complain on the current bss.studio website, because it's great. But I'd be lying if I said the design of it all doesn't feel a little bland to me sometimes. Maybe it's the artist/designer inside of me, but I feel like it could look a bit better and more calming. If you're all interested in this, I'll be more than happy to continue with this project and get in touch with Jesse or someone to actually make these changes a reality. That being said, I'm 100% okay with not applying the changes. And in that case, just enjoy a fan-revamp of BSS! I also included the new BSS-logo because that's the part I'm most proud of. Matt/Cwilk
  9. Just an update:
    I changed my name here and made a new account on YouTube.
    I'm now just Cwilk (I used to be EnderBoy 7 on YT)

    Hopefully this'll clear some confusion on who I am where. You're all free to call me whatever you want though.

  10. Well yeah, agnostic speaking here, so I get what you're saying. The solution "believe in God" can seem or be useless for us non-religious. However, not nearly as many Christians act the way you described, and if you feel like this community's Christians do, you might've amplified or misidentified their actual intentions. Personally, I'm all for believing in God if you use it as comfort on the days you feel weak or worthless. And to protect religion, I really support the "what if?" argument. What if there's something or someone above all our world and understanding? Well there's no real way for you to know or disprove that. Almost by definition, that something is above our knowledge, right? That sounds impossible, but it might just be that your blind belief in science and common logic is naive. In conclusion, I'm more than happy to let people dream, but if people harm or start wars because of religion, I think they're going too far.
  11. Your neighborhood two-tone forest. And a poetic path down the middle.
  12. Pretty self-explanatory, what music programs do you use/recommend?
  13. From the small amount of poetry I've done, I'd say it definitely prepared me for lyricwriting. And yeah, starting with something less important can be good, although if you start to dislike the poem you wrote, you could always write a new poem with the same topic in the future, so I wouldn't overthink what topic to go for. Before writing a poem or lyrics, you have to understand what you want from the poem/song. Do you want it to be clever and packed with ideas? Do you want to create interesting images in the listener's head, etc. Listen to music that has great lyrics in your opinion, and ask yourself why they sound so good and meaningful or clever. Also bear in mind that writing stuff for music and poems is quite different. A poem can be easily post-modernistic and get away with less matching syllables. Poetry is art focusing on the use of words while songs add music and melody to the mix. Just bear that in mind.

    Thank you too! That was very insightful and you seem to have gotten quite a lot out of my humble suggestions. And wow, we have similar passions in game design! Though coding isn't my strongest suit, I would also love to make a fully-fledged game one day! It's very cool you're able to tweak Piskel like that, it definitely has some shortcomings. And yeah, GingerPale's great - Matt/Cwilk
