Posts Tagged ‘Black & Red Entertainment’

Well its safe to say that I haven’t given this blog any attention what so ever in awhile, so I thought it would be a good idea to give it a mass update on all things LIFE!

First up, last weekened was my second show for Black & Red Entertainment, it was at Zeal West, Henderson, Auckland and had a pretty decent turnout of 100 people in the main room, which based on the feedback I got from the bands that played was good vibes which is allways good to hear 😀 So currently in the works for another one up there in Sep/Oct, unsure on the details at the moment, will post more once I get it sussed.

Another big thing was that I moved back down to my hometown of Tauranga, mainly for two good reasons… Something pretty big came up in my family and id just like to be around family for awhile and the other is to safe money for uni next year in Auckland, so im only in Tauranga for around six months which I dont mine at all.

Music wise ive just been listening to the new releases of Skrillex, Foreign Beggars, Feed Me, Of Mice & Men and a few other random songs which are all killer releases by the way. I really REALLY love the new Of Mice & Men album, such a good step up from their old album and I really love the soft tracks and the fact that there is more singing on the album than the previous, just makes it alot more fresh sounding that the last release!

Last but not least ive got some video stuff that ive got to start editing together for my uni portfolio which submissions begin in September I think, so hopefully those turnout well and the people im doing it for dig it.

Ill start posting “interesting” things more often now and keep the blog more active with updates and cool things.

Just a quick update on things, had a good easter weekend, caught up with a few people I hadnt seen in awhile which is allways good.

Getting another B&R gig for June sorted atm and should have the promo page on Facebook up soon with print coming a little after, ill post details on that on the B&R blog and this blog when its all finalised.

Apart from that just abit work on the side and waiting for my new computer to arrive at my mates store so it can be built and setup so I can game, record and edit videos more effectively and finally just have a decent computer setup for once lol.

On a side note im watching a news flash on TV3 news that OSAMA BIN LADEN has been killed in a drone strike over Afgahnistan which is pretty crazy, wonder what my dad will think of the whole situation lol.

Anyways ill post a update when my computer has been completed and post pictures and when the next B&R gig is finished.

Chur, Will.

2011 CAKE FOR YOU!!!

Well its a new year and I had a pretty cool new years, hanged with quite a few people and saw some pretty cool fireworks. Ive got two main resolutions for 2011 and they are to keep my swearing down to a minimal and only swear through frustration lol and to stop eating takeaways ALTOGETHER for the WHOLE year…. I know, if you know me they both sound like complete bullshit but im going to try really hard to complete these.

I hope to complete the goals ive set for B&R this year which is easily achievable through hardwork so ill definitely be trying my hardest to get them complete and build up the company.

So yea just a 2011 update, more to come!

Got a new logo designed for me by a good mate of mine, hes just starting out with design but getting better and better with everything he does, pro as!

Anyways, been pretty busy with final hand ins for class and a few volunteer positions for friends events. This coming week is going to be pretty hardout with me helping at Armageddon and a flat mate moving in for a few weeks, so hopefully everything goes well.
Still looking for some work in AV/Sound/Lighting or Event Management, its pretty tough at the moment trying to get something but im bridging contacts in other countries so hopefully something comes up.
Apart from all that class finishes in 5-6 weeks which is good and bad since ill miss everyone but come graduation time is SUIT UP for me!
And last but not least im trying to slowly develop Black & Red Entertainment into something further than it is at the moment for 2011, so hopefully something comes of it and something I can look at and be proud of 🙂

Thats me, update out!

Having done alot this week apart from I attended a invite only gaming industry event at this shed down on Victoria St I think it was with my friend that works at a game store. We got there at it was a open bar and had a few games that were the E3 builds, to name a few there was Marvel Vs Capcom 3, Sonic Colours, Vanquish, Hawxs 2, Dead Rising 2 and both Microsofts Kinect and Sony Playstation Move which are releasing sometime later this year. I only really played MvC3 which is alot of fun and as crazy as MvC2. They also had a tournament for MvC3 towards the end of the night with 8 people (which me and this other dude should have been apart of but we got kicked off >_<) anyways my mate won the tournament and scored himself a Hori SE 360 arcade stick, a copy of MvC3 when it drops, SSF4 copy and a signed MvC3 t shirt from E3 which isnt to bad considering he was abit drunk lol. I scored a goodie bag which is cool, had a few PS related things in it so ill just chuck them in my box of promo stuff.

Apart from that im just waiting for Saturday to roll around so I can get to Zeal and run the show im putting on. Should be good times, im not to nervous and I hope everything runs smoothly 😀
Ill do a writeup of my event on sunday sometime.

Another update yo! Just been in class and start/finishing assessments left right and center, my show that im running for class is on next Saturday (Aug 14th) this is the final poster design:

On the 21st/22nd of Aug ill be playing in the SSF4 nationals at GIGA just up the road which should be sweet, not really expecting to do that well since im not all that great at SSF4 but I like the game enough to show up to events for it.

So apart from that im just doing class assesments and chillaxin.

Heres a few poster designs I got done up for it from a friend, they are looking pretty fucking awesome:

Ill use the light blue (3rd one) one for printing and the purple one (4th One) for internet promo.
