Signal Lost: Coming November 30th, 2023

Get ready for the future of DCG Retrowave! A new single, Signal Lost, is releasing on November 30th! This is being released to promote my next album which will be announced on the same day. A music video will be released as well to promote this new track composed for the legendary Roland SC-55.

Also, I'm looking at switching web hosts today! This will allow me to expand this website and host larger files! I'm also hoping to rewrite some parts of these HTML pages to tidy things up as a coworker of mine saw how my files are laid out and cringed hard :D

Stay tuned for future updates!!!

Hello everyone. I am typing this message on a modernish PC. It is a nice PC that does very nice PC things. I want to go do other PC things on my favorite retro DOS PC, but part of my brain is telling me to continue sitting in front of this 1920x1200 Dell LCD from 2008 and stare at my own Facebook page which I just logged into so I could finally update the page description because it still said that Sunset Drive was coming soon even though it was released like.....many many minutes ago I think???

I've heard my own songs so many times that I could quote their lyrics backwards in my sleep...if my songs had lyrics, which they don't...probably.

You know, this box of 10 Memorex floppy disks I have next to me is still sealed. I'd open it, but these aren't your ordinary floppies. They are COOL DISKS according to the colorful 2005 packaging. I'm not exactly sure what makes these DISKS so COOL, but I feel like they deserve only the finest 3.5 floppy disk drive so I must make sure that I handle them with extreme care.

Of course, rewritable CD-RW's are like the best thing since...the best thing that came before that...if such a thing existed. They make my life so much easier when I want to copy fun and desirable software goodies to my favorite DOS PC. Speaking of which, I still need to turn it on and type in "CD PLUTONIA" followed by "DOOM2" and then BOOM!!!...no wait that's a source port. What I mean is that those commands which will be typed on a PS/2 keyboard I paid $8.00 CDN for shall grant me the ability to suffer at the hands of many, much, numerous, and other synonyms for "TOTALLY NOT ENOUGH!!!" Arch-viles.

So basically......yeah.

Here's an emoji :O
