It’s weird to me that Parappa the Rapper still to this day, has such a hold on geek consciousness. I don’t even remember if the game was any good. People have reported mixed feelings on the subject. Regardless of the quality of the game, I do remember playing it and thinking it was the greatest thing of all time. I played it every day and was obsessed with it. To this day I can still rap almost every song in the damn game.

This was the first song I made in the Rap-A-Thon, and I won’t lie. I had the idea for a Parappa song for…well, years. So I figured I’d tackle it to start the writing juices flowing. I’m pretty pleased with it.

LAST TWO SHOWS OF THE YEAR!

SATURDAY – Drawncon – Westford MA (info)
DEC 13 – Fantom Comics – Washington, DC (info)

I was kind of bummed that I had to drop this song in the middle of Rap-A-Thon, because I honestly think it’s one of the better songs I’ve made in a while. It doesn’t hurt that Dazzler/Longshot is probably my #1 favorite couple in all of comics history. I’m not sure exactly why, sometimes things click with you. Maybe it’s that Dazzler was a part of the Dark Phoenix Saga at a time when I was such a young kid obsessed with music, and I thought her powers were cool. And then she evolved and became punk rock 90′s Dazzler, which you can laugh at now but back then, was COOL AS SHIT. And then the Jim Lee X-Men came out and the Mojoverse arc was honestly one of my favorite stories ever. I don’t know, okay?

The point is, I really like this song I made – and now I get to officially put it in the archives by itself.

Here’s my last 3 shows in 2014: 

NekoCon – Virginia Beach – Nov. 7 (THIS SATURDAY) 
I’ll be tabling at this con, and performing in their nerdcore showcase with Schaffer the Darklord, Dr. Awkward, Tribe One, and Kristy Bee. More info.

“John::Jean” [Rap-A-Thon Lookback]

At some point during the Rap-A-Thon, I opened the question on facebook and twitter asking for ideas what to make a song about. Someone wanted a Riker song, and I opened the question about whether people would rather hear a Picard song or a Riker song. It was pretty split down the middle. So I made a song about the both of them.

Over this past summer, I actually watched 4 seasons of Star Trek TNG, and was planning on making a mixtape about the show. But it’s weird, I didn’t have time to sit down and work on it. And it was such an expansive universe and cast, I kinda just let it slide. So, this is my Star Trek TNG song.

I made this song from concept to mastering, in about 40 minutes. Not bad, huh?

There it is, the 18 songs I made in a day for the 24 Hour Rap-A-Thon. Thank you to everyone who listened, who helped promote it, who donated. A healthy portion of the proceeds will go to RAINN, so thank you to them for their support and the good work they do.

It means a lot to me that my music can help accomplish some good in the world. It’s hard to think that these silly songs about Star Trek and comics can do any good beyond being just silly distractions, so this Rap-A-Thon has been an incredible experience for me.

I have had a lot of people very close to me, loved ones, who’ve been survivors of sexual violence. Beyond that, I seem to know even more people who share this experience, having loved ones be survivors as well. In this day and age (especially with topical stories like gamergate and all that), nerd and geek culture can be a toxic place for not just women, but a lot of demographic segments. It’s easy to hate, to threaten, to be generally terrible people. And it’s sad to me to see so many self-proclaimed nerds fall victim to things like rape threats or homophobic/misogynistic insults hurled around like it doesn’t mean anything. It means something incredibly hurtful to a lot of people. Those aren’t the kind of nerds that I want representing what I do, or who I am. So I hope you can continue to be good to people, or maybe think twice before hurling around bullshit that affects people in very real ways on a daily basis.

If you are struggling, if you are hurting, not just with sexual violence but with depression, with anything – please find help. You can google any number of organizations that are there to help 24 hours a day. Or, just find a friend and talk to someone, just tell people you’re hurting. You’d be surprised to find how many people are also hurting, and how many more people are ready to help.

I’ll be sending out an email to donors shortly, when I recover from the day. Thanks for a great day.

And more free music comin’ when I can stomach looking at that microphone again. Which will probably be like Tuesday or something.

You can still pledge by emailing rapathon@gmail.com a per-song or lump sum donation now! 18 songs in a day!
