Hey you! Yes you! Do you make music or short films? Do you struggle to get a clean polished sound out of your mix? Do you need to get your project ready for physical release?

Let me take the hassle off! I'm now taking commissions for Mixdown & Mastering! I have a decades worth of experience, an Audio Engineering & Production degree, and more self-made projects on my bandcamp than i care to count! Moreover, I've worked with Electronica producers, recorded 5 piece djent metal bands in studio, and done audio work for a plethora of short films!

Hire me now, and work with a rad queer woman!

Take a look at my commissions on ko-fi!

P.s, you can also commission a song from me! Want your very own Ariana Giroux track that no-one else will ever have?

(boosts very welcome)

Me PSA. If youve got any affiliations with radical free speech or religious freedoms, dont attempt a follow.

If you dont have pronouns in your bio, dont attemot a follow.

If you come across as a cis-het male colonizer fossbro, your going to need a whole lot to prove your not a bad actor.

Anyways. Basically, maybe try interacting before you follow...

My EP is up. Happy pride, remember kiddos. No liberation for any of us without all of us.

So yall better quiet down and listen to what those folks most affected by queerphobia and transphobia have to say.

I have taken to augmenting my language with kinds of hand-flappy

For example:
- confused hand-flappy
- excited hand-flappy
- timey-wimey hand-flappy-wappy
- aggressive info dump hand-flappy

I would now like to suggest that this become offical eclectic lore

Boop! My album launched last night! Celebrate , , , art with me, and take a listen.

You could buy it, or you could just stream parts. Either would truly make my heart leap!

So here is a link to some ambient house/downbeat, and my celebration of !

First time rendering out a video using Kdenlive on an M1 Macbook

Gotta be honest, im pretty impressed. Barely any heat from the machine, and its pulling through 2.5 hours of footage in about 35 minutes

k so my job is basically social-work adjacent, and i hate it. social workers and the social work system in canada is broken and harmful

so then why am i sitting here considering getting a social work degree

todays the day, one of three major projects ive been working on - a weekend long camp for queer youth to build leadership and interpersonal skills - starts today with a full day of training

all the last minute details are definitely freaking me out but its gonna be over soon🤞​

wish me luck, send me groovy music to keep me going pls?

Show thread

ugh. the more i look at the situation around the office, the more i realize i think i need to pull an all nighter to be able to be caught up

i am not excited about this omg - i have not pulled a deadline crunch like this in a couple years tbh

blargh brain melting not enough coffee

*camera pans back to reveal two giant Tim Horton's XL coffees, already consumed, and a third underway*

how to know you might have ADHD:

you have a document to write, your getting distracted. So you full-screen your document, hide any editing tools, disable all notifications on all of your devices, and set up your second monitor to just show a visualizer for your music - which you listen too so auditory stimulus doesnt distract you

oh no it me

you know your a cheesy fuck when your genuinely jamming out to Paramore's "Thats What You Get" at your desk as you write reports

between 3 partners, trying to maintain a social life, and the never ending demands of the job (literally, never ending - i was networking at a pub recently), there is like 0 time left for me sometimes.

i need more me time - especially to work on music and play the games i love (like starcraft, dear god do i love starcraft)

Show thread

yknow, i love my job. i really really do.

but goddamn. yesterday i just spent a couple hours practicing my live set and playing starcraft 2 and omfg did i need that

queer struggle? where is the queer snuggle? :blobCats_cuddle:

canadian memes, joking violence 

my uber on the way to work was caught in a short traffic jam due to some Canadian Geese being stuck on the road.

my uber drivers suggestion? "i own a resteraunt you know, i'll make soup out of you"

me too uber driver, me too.

woah whats this im kinda getting back into using discord?

k, one thing i dislike about macos:

trying to script/hack the os is just... that much harder and its super dumb

yknow. i really wanna replace my razer orochi. I had the original generation mouse for years and years and it put up with so much abuse - but it recently gave up

i just like. want a mouse a can quickly pop out to play some pc games from time to time yknow?

the trans urge to start hosting regular jitsi's to randomly chill and talk about music making and synths

I'm gonna try to livestream the set - and if not livestream it, then record the set with a camera and re-upload it.

im honestly starting to get really excited

Show thread

but the rig is pretty fucking nice to perform off of honestly

i still think at the end of the day if I could rebuild the set from the ground up, I'd buy another circuit to replace the electribe tho

Show thread

ugh, practicing for this gig next weekend in 31C

without AC

I am a sweaty fucking mess and i only got through the first half
