So, here we are in the futuristic year of 2014. Technically, that statement is true if you think about it: Half the technological advancements we take for granted today didn't even exist 10 years ago.
But, that's besides the point.
So, let's get the bad/depressing news out of the way first, ok?
Last week I went to see a neurologist to have a test done on my nerves. Apparently my pain and "tremors" have a central source, which at this point, means one of two things:
1. I have a pinched nerve in my neck, which is fucking up the electrical signals that my brain is sending to my body.
2. I have some sort of brain damage that is causing malformed signals to be sent out to the rest of my body.
My MRI scan in March will shed more light on my situation.
However, I won't be in as much pain now as I wait, since my nerve medication has been upped. I'm actually just 200mg shy of the maximum allowed daily dosage. This dosage is working for me, though, as it's brought my pain and twitching down quite a bit. Sure, I feel stoned 24/7 because of the medicine, but I'll gladly pu up with that side effect for now.
In good news?
2014 will be a major year for me musically. Right now I'm part of a steadily expanding project called "Northwest by Northeast", a collaboration with Jared Sample, the drummer of a band based out of Oregon called Cry Havok.
Chaokaze music will be sounding bigger and better than ever. I'm almost done writing my "TERMINALS" album, and then I begin work on |PEOPLE|, my next album. I'll be doing a LOT of music writing, which is good, because it's what I love doing.
Also, sometime this year I'm going to be starting a gameplay show, playing various games on the Xbox One. Not quite sure how that one will go yet, but fingers crossed that it'll be good.
With that said, happy new year, everyone!
