Getting Back Into It

Well, folks, it's that time of year again - back to school. I've been going since Monday, and it's really thrown off my blog-checking schedule. But I want to thank you guys for visiting anyway - still getting views every day!

Not much to talk about, other than the fact that Adam has continued uploading commentary videos for all the songs on "Mobile Orchestra"! Click HERE to watch the video for "My Everything"!

I'm getting back into the swing of things as I settle into my school schedule, so I'll be back soon! Not to mention, the podcast is coming...

  2. Who's looking forward to Twitter chat with Sekai No Owari and VERGE: The Remixes?? :0D
    Also what's the whole music making thing on Instagram? Adam posted what I can presume is music stuff (I'm not a music genius-don't shoot me) saying 'Almost there'.
    What does this mean??? MORE music?

    2. This is really interesting. I don't understand why they call it "Death Obsession", though. I think the important point in "I found love" is the goodbye theme. How some things just end a lot too fast when you want them never to end and you have to say goodbye but you're still so gratefull it happens, even if it hurts.
      And when Adam says that "thunderstruck" is about falling in love with a ghost, I don't think he means that in a death way. More like you fall in love with an idea or someone you'll never be able to reach. Maybe a little like what Adam is for all of us.

  3. I have been noticing Adam posting lots of music making stuff on Instagram lately and I also noticed the "almost there" post. My best guess is that that is in reference to possibly his setlist for the upcoming tour, because he has to do some sounds from the computer, I'm not sure though! I wish it was new music but I won't get my hopes up! What are your guys thoughts? -MVB (I'm back baby!!!!)

    1. :0D !!! Welcome back! I missed you and your insight! I agree with your view of the 'almost there' post referencing the setlist for the tour. It seems the most realistic idea. I wish I had some useful ideas to contribute but oh well. Glad to see you're back buddy!

  4. I'm glad to be back! I wish it meant he was coming out with a single before the tour here but quite frankly I don't see that happening... That's ok though, I meet adam in about 31 days so I'm so looking forward to that! -MVB

    1. Adam said he'd do another Sky Sailing album in the twitter chat, maybe that was what he was on about.
      31 days... that's insanely close! I am so excited for you!!! :0D

    1. Ha ha, you'll be fine! I think Adam has an atmosphere when you're shaking like a leaf at first but after a while it's like he's an almost acquaintance. Are getting anything for him, also is it Owl/Unicorn based? ;0D
      -Glasses Anon
      I wonder how many 'Are you Colo(u)r Therapy?' questions he's going to get.

  6. Yea I bet at least a few people will ask him that! Also, I think I'm going to write him a letter instead if getting him a gift. Is that lame? -MVB

    1. Writing a letter is completely original not to mention cool! Not lame at all!
      You should go and check out Breanne's new E.P, it came out today. It's really good! (I recommend Dear Adelaide)

    1. I would gladly-I'm actually good at starting an argument over spelling, punctuation and grammar. However the lack of email and social media on my behalf is quite embarrassing. You could post it on the blog if you want and I can tell you what I think of it, if not just write it up on Word or whatever and just have the computer autocorrect stuff for you.

  9. Well, maybe I'll just wing it then. I'm sure it will be good enough. I just hope he actually reads it. -MVB

    1. :0D I don't think Adam will care about spelling and whatnot. As long as he knows that you appreciate his music (as I'm sure you do). I definitely think the letter will mean a lot, and if he doesn't read it I'll get a flight to Minneapolis and a cab to Owatonna (when he's finished his tour) and make sure he reads it! Or maybe Abbey might read it if Adam's busy on tour.

    1. You can copy and paste it into search bar at top of page. It's a song Adam did for a PS4 Golf Game.

    2. PS. It's called 'Clap Your Hands'

  12. Ok yea I have heard that then, I kinda like it. It's catchy! What do you think? -MVB

    1. A lot of people are complaining it sounds like another Live It Up. But to be fair Hootowls aren't the audience for the song- PS4 players are.
      But whatever I think it's cool and I LOVE IT! It's been stuck in my head all day long.

  13. Hootowls have been complaining more and more as the days go on, so I'm not surprised that people don't like the song. I pretty much like everything adam puts out. -MVB

    1. I mean, sure, everyone else is entitled to their opinion but Hootowls are fans that support Adam. Even if we dislike the stuff he puts out sometimes we still have to support him and his decisions. Some people don't realise what being a Hootowl means (why does this sound so cliche?) Clap Your Hands is great, every other opinion is invalid. :0D

  16. SO ironic how Adam posted that vid on Capri Sun when yesterday I was on Geography field trip with school and tried to open Capri Sun and literally did the same as Adam. We can all be failures together!

    Have to say better without lyrics. Damn, I never heard that guitar in the chorus!

  19. Oh my that's awesome, have you found any instrumentals for the other songs? -MVB

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Unfortunately no, the Youtube channel only supplies instrumentals for popular songs so probably won't release any other Owl City official instrumentals, only if they become popular from radio play and what not. Though I don't see that happening. But I'll keep scouting around, and if I do I'll tell you as soon as I see it :0D

  21. I am going to see the show and meet him in Minneapolis on the 17th and I could not be more excited. I haven't started writing that letter yet, but I'll get to that one of these days. Also, that was an awesome article, thanks for sharing. -MVB

    1. *keeps head down and pretends not to be jealous* But seriously, I am so excited for you! And get on that letter and let me know how it goes, because I'll be dying to hear. Also your welcome for the article, I love commenting on the blog, talking to you and sharing the info I find on Adam (without trying to sound like a stalker).
