Weekend Meme Voice Acting Session 2

Did some more digging by myself, though with the help of my girlfriend as well. Suggestions are still encouraged, though. Also, I added some more audio effects into this one. And don’t forget honest constructive feedback too~

Milestones, Turning Points, and Activity Updates – February 2019

By the way, it’s the birthday of a brother of mine today. Happy Birthday, bro!

Anyway, yes, I’m late with this. Been dealing with school and personal stuff, see. Also, man, I haven’t been posting much. I have my cover of Circus-P’s Copycat, and then there are reblogs of posts by Prof. Dalisay, Mrs. Juneau, and Mr. Hayes.

Ah, and speaking of school and personal stuff, I think I’m getting a better sense of direction with my thesis. That, and I’ve gotten myself a gym membership with my mother’s help (and I need to get back into going to the gym during the weekend or the week after). Praise and thanks be to God Almighty very much yet again, then! And that’s not even everything yet!

As for Tobbywork plans, I plan on working up my meme and voice acting skills during the weekend. That, and I’ve gotten into writing some animation scripts as well lately (and I gotta send ’em to a certain someone eventually). I also have a song or two in my mind decided on for my next covers, and I’ve also been making progress with writing certain lyric sheets. I can probably kill my boredom further and have a more worthwhile time if I try to work up freestyles and fanfiction in between all those research and chores…though I’m also struggling with getting enough sleep and not gaming and surfing too much, and I’ve been pushing my sensitive self too hard with arrogance as well. Thank God for my girlfriend, my family, my friends, and more very much for helping me deal with it better, even though my progress is slow. Like, really, how they can still be helpful to me even though I’m struggling so much just makes me want to do better! Praise be to God Almighty very much again, then!

And hey, Lent starts today. I get the feeling that the tougher challenges I’ve been getting lately have been doing a good job reminding about that, and man, I don’t think I would be looking at it that way without the help of God. It’s a time to remember how lowly we are, but at the same time, it’s also a time to remember what we really have to go through to reach salvation.

So yeah, time to head back to ordinary life. God Almighty keep on helping us all!

Are Women Basically Mothers at Heart?

And now I find myself realizing that I’ve been taking being a man for granted more than I thought. Still, I thank God very much, for I have found more hope in this chance to learn more yet again!

Women today are confused about who they are called to be. If we feel called to be full-time mothers, society seems to dismiss us as vintage models, out of step with the modern feminist agenda. I know I often felt embarrassed because I did not have a real job as I mothered nine kids.

Edith Stein (St. Teresa Benedicta of the Cross) had a lot to say about the nature of women. She was a Jewish German philosopher who converted to Catholicism, became a Discalced Carmelite nun, and died in the gas chambers of Auschwitz.

Initially, she struggled intellectually with the whole idea that women were different than men. In the end, instead of denying her gender, she looked to her body as the image of her soul. Katharina Westerhorstmann discusses Stein’s view of women in On the Nature and Vocation of Women: Edith Stein’s Concept against the Background of a Radically…

Penman No. 340: Wowwow, Mingming, Peepeep

My heart is warmed very much. Thank you very much for this piece, Sir!

Pinoy Penman 3.0

FOR REASONS still not too clear to me, since I had a great relationship with my late Dad, I never really wanted a son, and heaved a huge sigh of relief when Beng popped out a baby girl named Demi 44 years ago. Demi turned out to be everything we could wish for—bright, caring, and generous, an exemplar at her job in a major hotel in California, where she lives with her husband Jerry, another proud addition to our small family.

I may not have minded a grandson, but The One Who Knows Better decided that we were all going to be happier by ourselves, so Beng and I and Demi and Jerry have enjoyed our foursome, traveling together whenever possible and achieving what we could in this life without worrying too much about the future.

We couldn’t have imagined that in our later…

Tobby tried to sing “Copycat”

I remember being both amazed and scared when I think about how my girlfriend reacted to this cover when I first had her listen to it. So yeah, here it is!

Also, I would’ve worked up vocal chops at the end, but the ad-lib vocal stack I ended up making sounded so good to my ears, so yeah, I kept it. I should stack recorded vocals more, alright.

Oh, and yes, English songs are up in priority in terms of songs I want to cover next. And so far, the list has some crazier songs high up there.

Now, here’s this cover’s mp3.

And of course, don’t forget that honest constructive feedback, yo~

Milestones, Turning Points, and Activity Updates – January 2019

Okay, good news, this semester is now more likely to be my final semester, and I very much want to make it so, so yeah, probably bad news, I’m gonna be invisible online some more as I work to keep my head together and better as I make some short stories and a critical introduction for said short stories.

Now, why am I doing these posts again? Well, conceit is one thing…so yeah, I think it would be better for me to speak through my works more. They’ll pop up suddenly, so just go on with learning and improving with your ordinary days over there and don’t go kill yourself over me, please.

So, what do I got this time, then? Look right below this, yo:

  1. Chapter 6 of Crawling to the Dawn
  2. a column written by an old Professor about his retirement
  3. my twelfth Freestyle Rap Practice Compilation
  4. a Josh W piece on some James Joyce stuff

Hm, I should have more numbered post lists in future update posts like this, too…

Also, I got some fun stuff in the upload queue of my Tobbywork plans already, but I’m just waiting for some good timing and thinking of how to plan posting stuff in a more organized way, for reasons like “Why should I change my Pinned Posts on my social media zones so quickly?” That, and more important stuff that allow me to do all this Tobbywork stuff better and better. Said more important stuff includes school life, home life, love life, all that stuff. Ah, and I really need to separate going through entertainment for work and going through entertainment for relaxation in my head, ’cause I now don’t think that it’s as healthy as I imagined before…

Well, God Almighty keep on helping us all, then! And praise and thanks be to Him very much yet again for all the progress! \(*A*)/

usylessly unreadable Blue Book of Eccles (part I of ??!)

In this mind introduced to James Joyce through “Araby” and crazy memery, this critical piece is quite a bright and fascinating light. Also, Medieval Otaku’s reblog sparked me into actually reading and thinking about this, so yeah.

Res Studiorum et Ludorum

Now for the good stuff. In rereading Ulysses and dipping into Finnegans Wake and Richard Ellmann’s biography of James Joyce, it’s become clear that the man is one of those artists who I have a foundational, yet utterly complicated and baffling relationship with. It will take some time to completely hash things out.

Tobby’s Freestyle Rap Practice Compilation 12

Big thanks to my girl Pat/Ellaine/Burrito for having me take it slower! Also, as usual, I need more practice! And yes, my girl took that first video in the set, and in her home province, too!

Oh, and yes, I’m back to school now…and it’s now my final semester, thank God Almighty very much! I just need to pass one lecture class course and my thesis now…and check around for a grad photo shoot, among a bunch of other things…Again, better take it slow…and careful, especially…Thinking about it some more, I’ve been slow lately, but not careful, so yeah…God Almighty keep on helping us all.

Oh, and I want some honest constructive feedback. Better not forget that, yo! \(*A* )
