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.

Drawncon – Westford, MA – Nov. 11
I will also be tabling at the second DrawnCon, and performing at the Drawnconcert in Westford, MA. More info.

Fantom Comics – DC – Dec. 13
Very stoked to be performing at the newest Fantom Comics location in Dupont Circle, a special end of the year show in the city I worked when I first started on this music journey. More info.

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!


“Old Man Logan (Remastered)” [24 Hour Rap-A-Thon Flashback]

Beat used: Reks “All In One”

THIS SATURDAY, I’ll be doing a 24 Hour Rap-A-Thon. For one straight day, I’ll be writing, recording and posting songs as fast as I can make them. You can pledge a per-song or lump sum donation to the Rap-A-Thon and support! A portion of all proceeds will benefit RAINN.org, the nation’s largest anti-sexual violence organization. 

EMAIL RAPATHON@GMAIL.COM AND PLEDGE YOUR SUPPORT!

I thought I’d post one of the songs from the last Rap-A-Thon that I did in 2014, to give a good measure of the quality of songs I’m still able to make at such a quick clip. Here’s the full list of songs from the first Rap-A-Thon (minus one, that I had taken down for some technical reasons).

I hope you’ll take a moment and email rapathon@gmail.com, and pledge some small support.

“Clark Kent” [free tunes]

Clark Kent Cover

Adam WarRock “Clark Kent” (Free MP3)
Beat used: Chiddy Bang “Ray Charles”

First, I don’t often talk about the beats I use – mostly because I just grab them from wherever I find them and know nothing about the song itself. It’s rare that I know a song, and want to use the beat. I did here, and used Chiddy Bang’s “Ray Charles,” which is an amazing song and everyone should go check out, and hey, buy it, bc you know, musicians deserve support. For some reason, I had this hook in my head, and it kind of spiraled into this song about a guy named Clark Kent who works at LexCorp as an office drone. And everyone thinks he’s Superman, but he’s not, and has to just live his life with everyone assuming he is, which makes him sad. Or something. I don’t know, I just had a catchy hook in my head. So I hope you enjoy it.

You should also read some of the comments on my Taylor Swift “Shake It Off” rap on Youtube. It’s amusing.

On October 18, I’ll be doing a 24 Hour Rap-A-Thon to benefit RAINN.org to fight sexual violence and abuse. What’s a Rap-A-Thon? It’s where I write, record and release as many songs as possible in one 24 hour period. People pledge a per-song amount or lump sum donation. We raise money for a good cause.

If you want to support, email rapathon@gmail.com, and pledge a per-song amount (you can set a maximum amount) or lump sum amount. After the Rap-A-Thon is over, I will email you and you can submit your payment via paypal or other digital means. Last time I did this, I made 16 songs in one day – this time, I’m going to try to break that record. Support adamwarrock.com and a great charity and cause, and pledge your support!

After the Rap-A-Thon, I’ll talk about my upcoming plans for album releases and the such, which I’ve been  hard at work on in the downtime. So get excited for new releases hopefully coming soon!
