March Break and Down Time

Image
This past month has been quite hectic for me. A lot of stuff has been going on this month and a lot of unexpected turn of events have been making things more complicated. I decided to take a break from making new content, with some few exceptions here and there (testing out livestreaming on Twitch). It just took a toll on me.

Financially, I'm getting in a better place... of course, slowly, but surely; I still gotta pay a few things off and then I'm good.  On the flip side, there was a death in my family which has been the main reason why I haven't been around as much in the past week...

Hardest thing in life is saying goodbye to someone who has been there since the early beginnings... #rip bro — Luis Rosales (@eseoficial) March 19, 2017 My cousin Javier passed away in an accident as he was coming out from a nightclub in Orlando. It was tough on the whole family and it was just really shocking. Last year, a friend of mine (an old roommate) was a victim in the Pulse shooting…

Computer All Set Up, Got A New Camera

Image
Looks like we got the computer working again without any errors. HDMI works, VGA works, and the Graphics cards also work. For some reason one of the Ram slots is malfunctioning but things are quite fine right now. I already got XSplit downloaded so I can start recording video games, but I'm thinking of using a different software before I even think about subscribing to XSplit... damn subscriptions... I have all my software ready for music digital production, video editing and photo manipulation which is very exciting.

On another note, my oldest sister asked me to fix her camera, but as it turns out she doesn't really want to keep it. She got the camera as a present but for some reason it was in "Demo Mode"/"retail mode", and she wasn't sure how to get rid of it. It's a Samsung EK-GC120 aka Samsung Galaxy Camera, and so far I'm in love. I was able to disable demo mode and get it working as if it was a normal device without rooting Android (and vo…

First Recording and Computer News

Busy... So busy.. geeze...
oh... computer There are still some kinks with the computer, my sister and I are still working on some issues but she is coming back alive though. Time till tell whether or not she can be saved (which I'm sure she can be).
Going to make a few adjustments 😷😷😷 pic.twitter.com/SbTuk8p18m — Luis Rosales (@eseoficial) January 12, 2017 For some reason, one of the ram slots (DIMM1) isn't working correctly. If we put in a ram chip in it, the computer won't even run the bios or show something on the screen. My sister found out that all the other slots worked (6 DIMMs total) and when we don't use (DIMM1) the computer starts working again (also as it turns out, one of our Ram chips is completely fried apparently and unusable). I've gotta do a bit more research and see what I can do on my own without taking it to a repair company (or just getting the money back all together so my sister can get herself a decent laptop, or something). It's go…

Alienware Crossfire Not Working! I'm Having Graphics Card Issues

After 'breaking-in' the computer it seems though that there may be a problem with the graphics card on the system and the Alienware Aurora is behaving weirdly (mostly on the graphical end). I've been connecting my monitor to a DVI port but for some reason every now and again the screen turns black, or the monitor notes that there is no signal when I reboot the computer. This has prompted me to attempt to use the HDMI port, but that also has failed. Today I'm going to head to the store to pick up some tools (so that I may remove the graphics card), and may even pick up an extra DVI cable and a VGA cable. I might have the car today, so I'll be able to run these quick errands and try and get this computer to start working again.
I have a feeling that it could be CrossFire that's having issues. The computer was working at first but eventually pooped out and did so consecutively for the last few days. I have a good feeling we just need to unplug it, retry the graphi…

A Lucky Surprise For My Sister, Prodution On The Way

A lot of good things have been happening lately that will progress my ability to produce music!
Rap I've been getting into hip-hop/rap/r&b more and have turned on notifications for hip hop instrumentals created by YouTube producers, and looking up instrumentals on Google Play (wish there were more, there are a lot better instrumentals on YouTube than on Play). This is me getting more involved into the hiphop scene as a whole to practice on my rapping skills. I'm both writing, and trying to find my own flow. I'm noticing I have been improving, and even getting a little bit better with freestyling too, which is great because I fucking suck. Picking up that confidence with it though. Along with practicing being a rapper "yo", (i'ma stop, lol) I've made a Hip Hop, Rap, and R&B community on Google+ where I'll be sharing some interesting news of the best musicians and up and coming rappers/producers, come join if you're interested! Producing I w…

Random Videos With Jon & Music Update

For the past few days Jon and I have been continuously talking and brainstorming about how we want to approach our "music business". Jonathan, for himself, is suggesting a more 'professional' approach to releasing music and content, and of course, I'm staying loose and not necessarily sticking to a time schedule. Jon and I have gotten a bit of spare time to share together and talk while even running some errands... Right now we're thinking about doing videos together and muster up some randomness here and there! So far our latest video was completely random, we saw a car that was already burnt on the bed of a tow truck which was weird since we were in the suburbs... LOL
That car got lit up, but holy crap Jonathan's voice 😂😂 #haha#fire#wtfpic.twitter.com/hiWKdB6snH — Luis Rosales (@eseoficial) January 3, 2017
So far things are on track with few hiccups here and there with our music. The hardest part right now is staying concentrated and ensuring that we …

Ending 2016 with lots of booze and lots of weed. This is how it should be :D — Luis Rosales (@eseoficial) December 31, 2016
Starting 2017 off right! Time to finish this one and smoke the next one :) — Luis Rosales (@eseoficial) January 1, 2017

Before New Year's Jon ended up showing up at my house around the afternoon to drop off my Piano and we went ahead and spent just about an hour and 30 minutes thinking of ideas and furthering the melody and style we want our songs to go.

It s…
