Hey everyone,

Chennie here and I know you haven't heard from me and I don't really have an excuses for why you haven't, but I'll try my best to explain it.

1. The Explanation:

:iconotlplz:

Now, I'm a person that understands patterns pretty well. One thing I realised is that after every single 'BIG' update. Something always goes wrong in my life that forces me to leave DA for about a week. I was prepared for that. I caught a very bad case of the flu, which prevented me from doing any recording and I was planning to just wait it out. WELL TOO FUCKING BAD!

Post-Flu, I had so much shit go wrong in my life that I felt like I got hit by a train. I won't go into details because I don't normal share personal details about myself. I prefer to just smile and pretend it all never happened, but between the stress of starting up my new business as a day-trader, working as a financial consultant and trying to learn new things inbetween...not to mention all the emotional crap that happened like losing a bunch of friends...yeah I basically spent all my days hiding out on warframe because I had zero motivation to do anything. Literally zero.

Now usually I upgrade my writing during long breaks like these,  because I practice...this time, that didn't happen so maybe my works will have regressed to a bare A,B,C, who's to know. But what I do know, is that I'm back. I'm worthless, but I'm back and I'm going to give this Mega Update a second try.

Change Log to the Mega Update:

-
Scrapping the idea of paid audio for the pieces. Instead I will focus on the commissions opening up 
- Mask is ready, now working on a basic outfit design for a new YOUTUBE SHOW :D
- Word of Chen LIVE is coming back, with Chennie as the main persona. Won't be a weekly show though, it's more ad-hoc now.
- New Regular show will be Holy Man's Sunday confessional. Trying to work out a script for it.
- Advertising space will continue as normal.
- Update timing has been changed to once every 3 days minimum due to my current schedule.

---------------------------------------------------------------

2. THE PERSONAS - INCLUDING SOME STYLE CHANGES

:iconamon-plz:

I'm sure most of you know that I've been working on masks to fit different personas. I've been talking with the artist who is helping my create the mask and we've decided to create ONLY the Holy Man's mask first. There is no design for Angel's Wing yet and the other Personas will not receive a mask at this point in time.

Here is a full list of the coming personas and the type of pieces they will perform for you!

Holy Man - The dark priest of the nether realm! He performs surreal spoken word poetry, slam poetry and the occasional acid rap. Come visit his confessional in HELL (Coming soon to a youtube channel near you).

Angel's Wing - He is the voice of inspiration and I intend for him to do spoken word poetry that inspires others, he will also be performing all the romantic and emotional pieces.

- Zibir, Demon of Pride and Lust - This guy was originally tagged to Holy Man, but I decided to give him his own persona. He will do all the twisted sado-masochistic pieces, as well as topics on lust, cheating, and basically the dark side of humanity.

KROM - This guy was an accident. I was playing around with Zibir's voice and found that by replicating the final track and using an inverter technique, I could create a much more violent voice. He's still a WORK IN PROGRESS, but I intend for him to do a lot of violent pieces, dealing with hatred, murder and revenge.

12-V - This guy is basically an insane robot. He crosses over with Zibir quite a bit because he also does the sado-masochistic pieces, but while Zibir deals more with the mental aspect, 12-V deals more with physical agony. He has a wider range than Zibir though because he will cover a lot more topics and his robot voice is my sole original creation (using sound techniques I developed myself). This is the guy whom you will be seeing in my very next release :'3 His name is a homage to Alad V from Warframe.

Dante - Unlike the one from 'Dante's Inferno' this version is a GHOSTLY LICH. Basically he'll be using the Lich-King voice which I just think is awesome. I haven't decided on what pieces he'll do, but they'll be Ghostly!

Chennie - Just your average Asian kid. He is me, obviously LOL. I myself will just be performing those realistic, very urban pieces, mostly born from my experience on the streets. These pieces will just be slice-of-life or it may contain a little gangster rap (that's a rarity though)

And that's about it. This is my current voice set-up and I am separating these personas because each one is going to have a particular voice technique assigned to them (with the exception of Holy Man and Angel's Wing who have the same voice, but do different topics). I really wanted to expand my audio range because what I do, what I write...is supposed to be entertainment. Yes, it contains feels, yes it contains emotions, but at the end of the day it is also here to let you enjoy a little something and that's why the entertainment value is important to me!

---------------------------------------------------------------

3. The Advertising Freespace!

:iconkimjongunplz:

From now on you'll be able to purchase advertising free-space on my journal for a small point donation. Just send me a note and tell me which piece you want advertised and how many days you want it advertised for. I will then accept it (once I've logged on and checked) and only AFTER I have put it up, should you actually pay me. Just in case I don't log on for a few days or something.

The cost is only 1 point, per piece, per day. This means that putting up 1 piece for 10 days will cost 10 points, but 2 pieces for the same 10 days would cost 20 points instead. 

All points earned this way, go toward buying a premium membership.

The limit per person is 10 pieces and the maximum advertising time is 7 days. Why? It makes calculations easy.

Your pieces will be advertised like this!

-------------------------------------------------------------------

.: Adoptable :. [BID OPEN] by LugiaLuvr13 Lugialuvr13 (:iconlugialuvr13:) is currently having this adoptable for sale! Why not have a look at it :'3

--------------------------------------------------------------------

4. THE MENTIONS!

I owe a lot of mentions. They will be coming soon!

---------------------------------------------------------------

5. COMMISSIONS!

Will be opening up end of August once I have everything sorted out!
