Hey guys, I figured as a way of introducing myself, and letting everybody kind of get to know me, and the things I enjoy doing. Well, my name's Damon. Most people like to call me by my middle name though; Storm. Also, if it's not obvious by now; I enjoy video games, and then I also enjoy my passion: Music. Particularly playing lead guitar. Eh, I've been playing since I was like.... 15-16? Yeah, sounds 'bout right. I'm 30 now so...(GOD ALMIGHTY, I'M GETTING SO OLD 😭) Let's say 15 years then. Minimum anyway. Always has been my passion ever since I got into it. Unfortunately, the past few months of life have really firetrucked me over hard, and never let's up. Basically a few months ago my family, and I were illegally evicted by having our power cut off. Also, I'm almost 100% certain that no-one at the time couldn't be evicted due to the pandemic. My mother's sister-in-law still did it to us anyway, out of spite. Once my mom married her husband, he moved her trailer from Silk Hope, onto a property his parent's owned, and he was supposed to inherit. Long story short, we all lived at that property for the past 11 years. Rent free, and never had a lease for the 11 years there. My stepdad ended up getting murdered 2 years ago. Instead of him inheriting the property like planned; his sister got it. Again, for the year after her brother's murder, she did not once ask for rent, and never wrote up a lease at all. We would've been more than happy, willing to pay rent if wanted. One day, she gets some grudge against my mom, and does everything without notice just because she wanted us out. She ended up calling our power company, telling them to cancel the power at our property. Her dad was the land owner. Even though we paid light bill ourselves, every week, and had already paid that week, and still had money on it at the time of disconnection. It was the middle, hottest point of summer. She knew we had an inside dog, and knew we didn't get home from work until late afternoon. Didn't care. I'm glad we came home early. We came in the house to find the power off, and our dog panting to death. Barely move from being stuck in the house with no power. All the food we had went bad. With no power to run any utilities, or storage for food. We couldn't stay there in the dead hot of summer. We had to waste every dollar we had left to stay in a hotel, and eat out. No hotel had stove/oven to make our own. We never planed on leaving. Never planed having to spend our savings barely having enough to lay our head. That was our home, we lived there the past 30 years of our lives. Even have the title to it in my mom's purse. We NEVER abandoned it, we couldn't live there. llegally having utilities cut. we had to find a place to get by. We had to leave all our belongings there. I only have 2 pair of pants/shirts to my name now. My whole life is in our trailer. I had every intention getting my $8000 of music equipment, who wouldn't? Everything I owned. Not just mine, my family's too. Gone. We recently heard that someone moved Into it, and supposedly renting from my mom's sister in law. But we never received any notice. made sure to check our mail at that property. The thought of all our stuff, everything to our name, spent our life towards, sentimental things. my mom's husband. His ashes are/were in that trailer, gone. Even after everything she's done to us, she is even constantly stalking, harassing, and defaming my mother, and even stole my mom's old phone to start going into my mom's bank account from another phone, and cashapping herself. We have not said a word to this woman since we left, and have ignored every threat. Yet, she STILL continues to harass, and stress my mom, knowing she has extremely high blood pressure. I just don't know what to do, and my mom and I are constantly stressed, our blood pressure is above lethal, and threatening values.and going through hard enough times. Like I said, I only have 2 pair of shirts, and pants to my name. My whole life was in our place. I'm just about given up on life. I haven't been this low, and depressed in a long time. My music, and playing was my passion, and world. It's the one thing in my life that gave me purpose, and happiness. I've been without that now, and don't have the means to replace it. Especially since the instruments were more sentimental as my last tangible thing of my grandmother and grandfather's memory.. So I'm left with completely nothing, and no way to get it back. That's not even the kicker that stings, and hurts though. The thing that hurts the most is that it wasn't the worth value of everything. It's all the sentimental value I lost. Two of the guitars that I had ended up stolen were the only memories/gifts I had left of my dead Grandmother, and Grandfather. As they were the ones to buy those guitars for me way back when I started, and I never wanted to get rid of them because it was the only tangible thing I had to remember them by.. It sucks all around though; my main focus that drives me, and the ONE thing in this Hell on Earth that brought me happiness, and a sense of being is no longer a part of me, and I won't lie. It's really starting to get to me lately. I've been going through bad depression anyway the past year or two since my dad was also murdered about 2 years ago now. I just thought I'd atleast post a few videos I recorded over the years for you guys to enjoy, and hopefully like atleast... Maybe the positivity, conversations, and comments from you guys can help me out in this dark time in my life... Here's just a couple of examples/videos of me... Hope you guys enjoy.

UPDATE [02/22/2018]: Greetings all, Hope everyone is STILL HYPED from D23! That said, I have some news of my own The project is progressing nicely and thought to try something I've never tried before. So as of today, I've released the full track list for Project Kingdom XIII - Part 1 for your viewing pleasure plus more details and also how/where it will be available for download! Full details here: http://bit.ly/2ELN3TT ------------------------ Greetings all, So looking back through my post history, I thought I posted information about this project a long time ago, but it looks like I forgot ^_^'. I probably briefly mentioned it, and a few of you guys seemed interested in me going ahead with it so I guess its time to explain it in detail...also not to mention I have new details as well The Project's Initial Flow: Right now, I'm working on a remix named "Should I Stay". The song loosely follows the tracks "Simple and Clean" and "Sanctuary" by Utada Hikaru from Kingdom Hearts 1 and 2. The style of the track will be a blend of rock, electronic, and interestingly enough hip-hop, featuring two main vocalists; a female and male singer (very good btw), and a rap duo to fill the track. The track borrows arrangement details from the originals (some lyrics and even some of the reverse lines from Sanctuary ), but takes its own chances by creating new rhythmic directions, interesting key changes, and brand new lyrics; injecting aspects that you may already find familiar in a cleaver sort of way ^_^. I'm really putting my all into this one and hope you will enjoy it when finished! What Comes Next: Well, I want to record a studio video for this as well. I've secured our recording space but I'm still looking for a guitarist at the moment. But more importantly, after this track is complete, I do plan on opening up the project to an EP of at least 3 tracks. HOWEVER, I also plan on Kickstarting it so I can possibly take the EP up to 7 or more tracks. What other tracks are Planned? For the initial three, "This is Halloween", and a unique track based on Final Fantasy (no, not One Winged Angel. It's something else, and somewhat of a surprise ) but in the vein of Kingdom Hearts (possibly getting some special help with this one). For the kickstarted, I won't spoil it for you, but in the pipe line, a new track based off of Hallow Bastion and Scherzo di Notte (have to clarify the name, but possibly thinking of naming it Rondo di Familiar Notte), featuring a four string quartet and a few other musicians including the ones mentioned in "Should I Stay" (they're already excited for it. Me too ). And of course, Dearly Beloved is in there. Who knows, when we get more details on KH3 (including Utada's new intro song due soon), we might be able to do some more based on what we know from that upcoming game. Suggestions? Needless to say, I wouldn't mind a few song suggestions that you guys might want to see us do/remix or covered. Perhaps something extremely out there like....idk....that one song that plays one time when Sora turns into a Heartless or something....for whatever reason . Conclusion That about covers everything thus far guys. Its a huge undertaking for sure, especially considering how far I want to take it. I possibly will start a small site for email signups and notifications, and I do plan on visiting my local con in the next few weeks to help spread the word; I'm doing all a single guy can atm lol. With that, I leave you with a very small rough preview of part of the song. I still have some ways to go and there are no vocals just yet, but it's coming along nicely. Take care and ENJOY!
