Evan W. Craig - As The Stars Die

I'm left alone, meaningfully wast-less,
the ways i feel, indescribable pain in the room.
Oh yes, I'm coming home.
So I'll try to see, what the world does to me,
so I'll wait here, and I'll wait here.
As the stars die,
woah we try,
As the stars die
Now fall entwines like bloom into the ocean,
my heart falls assumed literally nothing,
in a haze, a gaze, still I'll wait for our second date.
So i'll try to see, if your here or away
Still I'll wait here, and I'll wait here
As the stars die.
Woah we try, try. try.
As the stars die

The boss draws inspiration from False King Allant of Demon's Souls, Olrox from Castlevania Symphony of the Night, and probably a couple others I've forgotten or didn't notice.

A recap of MNL (7/4/2022 YEEHAW!):

- I discovered a new first for the Monday live stream, and I discovered not one - but two children's books. Other books this week include a short poetry collection available on KU, as well as a lengthy haunted horror story ("with a supernatural focus").

- I announced a special book deal that comes all the way from down under, but is exclusive to the U-S of A! AMERICA!

- I shared some low effort ideas on how readers and writers could utilize the goodreads platform for marketing.

- I explained some more of the reasons why creators should join my Discord as well as "book" themselves a room at the Hotel del SS.

- I had time to read two pieces this week. One was a self-help article, which evoked my english accent, and the other was a narrative, which invokes the ire and grief surrounding winter.

If you'd like your work mentioned during a live broadcast, then leave me a comment on my video and share a link to your book, indie fundraiser announcement, reading event, submission call, blog entry (flash fiction, essay, editorial, poetry), or video content(comedy, storytelling, poetry reading, book trailer).
Cheers!

The level design is really good here, constructed to have enemies that complement each other. It makes it really challenging, but still seem fair.

A recap of MNL (6/27/2022):

- I bust through the gates swinging, as I explained the difference between being a proactive critic who appreciates the indie scene, and just being a social media trash talker who simply hops on cancel culture bandwagons to gain phony validation.

- I shined a spotlight on some books this week, including a medieval harem adventure, some offbeat science fiction, and a spoofy romcom.

- I made an announcement on behalf of a writer acquaintance of mine, which inspired me to bring up the subject of marketability and share some personal insights about developing brand name recognition.

- I explored a successful Kickstarter project for a SciFi comic book series, written by a man who realized that one must be willing to give their dream a chance, in order to make it a reality.

- I shared a resource for "neurodivergent" writers (or writers who have a chronic illness), that will connect them with an indie publisher who is looking to branch out.

- I finished the stream by reading a piece of romanticized fantasy that suggested darker implications within the details.

If you'd like your work mentioned during a live broadcast, then leave me a comment on my video and share a link to your book, indie fundraiser announcement, reading event, submission call, blog entry (flash fiction, essay, editorial, poetry), or video content(comedy, storytelling, poetry reading, book trailer).

This game is SUPER underrated. It has a slow pace and a extremely forgiving roll. When you combine those with good boss design it leaves me feeling like every death is fair (and also my fault.) It's worth playing.

A recap of MNL (6/20/2022):
- I discovered some books from the independent market, including a fishy narrative, a Kindle comic book based on a tv show, a dark fantasy coming soon, a standalone fantasy adventure, and a space based sci fi horror.

- I talked shop and shared some personal insights about the indie scene and how it differs from mainstream consumerism.

- I read some "great" poetry, then I dove into an existential editorial.

- I capped the show with a "badass" book trailer created by an author/father and his daughter.

A recap of MNL (6/13/2022):
- I discovered some books from the independent market, including a free-for-download supernatural short story, a series of novellas based on a reimagined version of The Jersey Devil legend, a hard knock life memoir about a black man's experience on both sides of the law, a metaphysical science fiction, and a fantastical short story collection focused around an uncanny Italy.

- I shared some news from around the scene including a word about an author's Solomonic tale, as well as an update from a previous mentioned "fantasy under four hundred" author.

- I was amazed by the presentation of a digital comic book.

- I explained my intention for creating a Discord server for the LFLR Network

- I did what I could to power through what I thought was supposed to be a story about a real life serial-killing couple.

- I ended the show on a lighter note, with a poetry video that recounts a priceless story about love and loyalty.

wake to day break,
almost over, waiting for cartoons,
was hands over,
nothing over, so closer than I presumed,
Alone, alone, alone, alone

Can I fill you into another life,
where angels go to fly high,
Fill you into another life,
where angels will be there for you,
For you, you, you, you, for you, angels will always be there for you.

crown the actors,
don’t delude the few for us fools,
trust all jokers,
trust your instincts,
its not hip to be cool,
or alone, alone, alone, alone

can I fill you into another life,
when angels go to fly high,
Fill you into another life,
where angels will be there for you,
You, you, you, you, you,
angels will always be there for you,
ya,

and you’re beautiful, ya, ya,
all this time that came and went,
i never asked for sympathy,
holy ghost it got my soul,
and I know what it should be,
and im on lone, lone, lone, lone, lone

dream of answers,
wake up if you want,
of your sweet perfume,
i'll leave this space like a plague forever,
you don’t have to presume,
i’ll be alone, alone, alone, alone,

can I fill you into another life,
when angels go to fly high,
fill you into another life,
where angels be there for you,
will angels ever be there for you?
angels will always be there for you

I hate leaving things unfinished, so I played another 20-30 hours to finish the game. My final thoughts? It's complicated, and rambling. I didn't enjoy the game at first, but after 20+ hours I do.

Tell me where does love go when you leave it,
Where do you go when you run out of love?
I was born and than i was treated
But I probably couldn’t stand and it still shows

Every moment to wash away the last one,
Every moment to wake up in a bad mood
Every morning, wake up just thinking
the last moment will be better than the last

Cause I was born and then I was treated.
but nothing can be stronger than my daddies love
Hit me down and I’ll get up even faster,
my momma taught me all the laws from her love

Every moment to wash away the last one,
Every moment to wake up in a bad mood,
Every morning, wake up just thinking
the last moment will be better than the last

Cause I’ve been drawn to every day people,
I want everyone to know that I care
Crosses on my friends lists, cross on you,
cross on twice for the shame of everything you do,

But every moment to wash away the last one,
Every moment to wake up in a bad mood
Every morning, wake up just thinking
the last moment will be better than the last

‘Cause i can’t fight this feeling anymore
No, I can’t fight this feeling anymore
I can’t fight this feeling anymore
I can’t fight this anymore

- Snake Eyes
.
New life, like skin is coming alive,
Either I'm not coming down yet or I’ve not survived,
No rhyme or reason given to us, if they can not?
I think I’ll keep barking on until until the suns ‘bout to come up
(then)

Then they’ll still help you,
but take all the information "they own”,
Hold it over your head,
Fill you up with propaganda,
and give you back no soul,
No soul

Stick it into gear, kick it out to park,
I’m not done and it’s not summer time yet no more,
No rhyme or reason given to us from our governments,
They just tell us to hold on,
In pyramids and glasses of stone,
So can you hear it ya’ll?
A hard rains gonna fall,
A hard rains gonna fall,
and hard times are coming ya’ll,
But we can fight back,
Yes we can fight back,
Where did they go?,
They are all pyramids glasses and stone

Then they’ll take a little more,
and a little more,
and a little more,
Until you’re the animal in the cage,
That’s waiting for more

You got this new life,
Shedding like new skin on a snakes eye,
Be there for all your families delights,
And hug the ones that want to be there,
help the ones with those blank stares,
divided the world is with these billionaires,
divided we can’t form

But now they’ve taken,
All and everything that you’ve had left,
Now your the frog in the pot,
and it’s ready to spoil,
They’re all gold fish?
There are all fucking gold fish?
Keep you at the bottom,
Hold you up at the top,
Fill you full of misery

A recap of MNL (6/6/2022):
- I discovered books from the independent market, including a pandemic trilogy (too soon?), an "odd" novel featuring a quasi MK Ultra protagonist, a book which begs the question "is it science fiction or is it fantasy?", and also a forty five minute mystery thriller.

- I discovered a cool new authortuber.

- I found out that there's a place for indie publishers to get in on the tabletop role playing game industry.

- I learned about what it takes to have a "perfect" relationship.

- I then watched a "kinky" book trailer.

Cheers!

Evan W. Craig - Remembered and Gone
.
trying to stand tall, on these giant hands
i pray to god that i die first cause this pains too sad
twilight breaks and your eyes close for too long
i cant fathom, I can’t see, cant imagine that your gone

so fly my georgie fly,
your soul survives,
my georges life,
but I never got to say goodbye
say goodbye, say goodbye, say goodbye, say goodbye, woah, goodbye

now im floating in a cloud, your ganna pull me down
pull my frown straight upside down
wisking the spirits away from me, there are so many only you can see, and i can barely breath

so, fly my georgie fly
your soul survives,
my georges life,
So fly georgie fly, your soul survives
In this golden life.
but I never got to say goodbye
say goodbye, say goodbye, say goodbye, say goodbye, goodbye

ohhhh…. hello???

Made it to the backstreets, wait on you to get home
wanna run without getting tired, can my love become my home
All of this future seems so empty, flicker like a tear drop already blown
Can I be on the hillside, just the two of us left alone

But I am,
lost and wronged
And i am lost on this long way gone, but i know i will see you again
but I, know I will see you again

Now I’ve have been to see ya, flicker like a tear drop in your eyes
Never been so far down on empty , every day my life goes flashing by
Waiting for all these indecision, all these people, they have done to me
Have I helped them make their choices, am I happy?
but i am lost
and wronged
And i am wrong on a long way gone
But I know i will see you again , ya i know i will see u again, ya

singing, Do do do do do do do
We all know where we’ll all go
singing, Do do do do do do do
We all know where we’ll all go
singing, Do do do do do do do
we all know that we’ll all go
singing, Do do do do do do do
we all know that we’ll all go

A recap of MNL (5/30/2022):
- I discovered a dark fantasy novel under four hundred pages, which has inspired me to coin a new category that I'm calling "Fantasy Under 400". Other books featured from the indie market this week include: a pageant poetry collection, a philosophical theological nonfiction, and a novel that Amazon categorized as "depression".

- I share an Amazon author page update from an antinatalist poet as I notice some trippy serendipity taking place during the stream.

- I comment upon the cultural shift that is taking place in our day in age and expand upon my intentions behind the "Storytellers' Society".

- I read the first episode of a thirsty werewolf-human romance.

Since the DAWN OF TIME human beings have coveted their magical meat boxes that they carry in their heads. These boxes provide the humans with many important services, such as THOUGHTS, DREAMS, and HAPPY CHEMICALS. One of the magical meat box's favorite things is NUMBERS.

NUMBERS are something the magic meat box made up to keep track of things that it likes to think about. OVER TIME the magic meat box thought more and more about NUMBERS and less about the things it was using numbers to KEEP TRACK OF. This resulted in the magic meat box learning to ENJOY numbers above all else and release HAPPY CHEMICALS when the numbers that it thought about got LARGER.
