Game Night With Spinners and Vapes [AFK 11]





☼G'MOIL!☼
Today I'm thrilled to share with you, Episode 11 of AFK.

In this episode I take you on a tight little journey of Saturday Night's Game Night with friends.

I had a wonderful time, and I hope that everyone else did as well.

Nights like this are what keep life worth living.

Enigma is Rocking New Merch!

Today I’m proud to release RE’s newest Logo Design by Wyatt Campiz.

This design was assigned as a sort of challenge to Wyatt, to see just what he is capable of under the pressures of a time constraint, and by golly I believe he delivered!

So now, I’m opening up the floor to the Minions of Internet Land, can you see yourself rocking some RE schwag?

Come represent Robust Enigma with some sick Retro Wave Merch!

For a limited time, this design is 20% off, so act now while you can save some doll hairs!

Welcome To The Showroom

While working on AFK: 08, I experimented with creating a #360Video.

This is what I created.

Here is some copy I wrote to go along with the video:



ɯ What have we discovered...

ǯ Do you see them?

ǯ The ghosts In the machine?

ǯ The faces in the margins?

ȯ I do.

ɯ They call to me.

ǯ They long to be a part of this world.

ǯ As something bigger.

ǯ As something better.

ȯ As something stronger.

ɯ My eyes met with a reality,

ǯ That clashed with my understanding of life itself.

ǯ How can I proceed,

ǯ When the world around me is broken.

ȯ Distorted among the timeline.



I hope you enjoy the adventure! :D

Sun Tracking During the 2017 Solar Eclipse [AFK: 07]




I hope you’re all having an awesome Wednesday!

Either way, you know what time it is!

It’s AFK Time!



Today I’m sharing a Time Lapse of the 2017 Solar Eclipse, shot here in New York!

Watching these clouds roll about the sky like waves upon the ocean fills me with joy.



Also, need some clarification.

At 5:15, I believe I may have captured the actual Eclipse.

Due to the exposure on the lense, the most we see is the glorious “X” of the Sun.

However, at that specific moment, a cloud rolls in the that “breaks” my camera’s exposure.

It’s either a really dense cloud, or I caught the Eclipse.



I know which of the two options I’m going with…



I CAUGHT YOU ECLIPSE!

I GOT YOU!

TAG, YOU’RE IT!

Breaking Through: Melody Mercury - The ARRIVAL of the new Queen of Horrorcore

Hold up... Which one of you ladies just became the most interesting underground Horrorcore artist?
Still from "Queen of Decay" by Melody Mercury

Exploring musical genres as I do, the offerings in the Horrorcore/Acid Rap genre are usually lackluster at best. To an outside eye, Horrorcore/Acid Rap has a reputation of being a putrid public pool, overflowing with edgy white males, trying to express their angst in a way that keep them out of prison, so you'd almost be forgiven for overlooking the genre as a whole. Yet sometimes, among the masses of weak flow, broken english, and ear destroying beats, something unique arises.

Enter Melody Mercury's debut album ARRIVAL, a refreshing take on what Horrorcore can, and should, be.


So, I don't know about my Minions, but for me, I can clearly see that this is someone's passion project. It's not just some slop thrown together for filler. Not only does it appear to be a well-planned, properly produced album, but every last detail is apparently a calculated work of art. From the cinematography of "In The Smoke" and "Queen of Decay", to the concise website, this release reeks of sheer passion. Clearly, someone took great care in nurturing this project to fruition, and oh man, it shows, and for me, that's half the joy in music today. Getting a sense of not only the creative expression, but that journey the artist has taken from nothing to something, it's just giggly gosh-darned exciting to experience!

I think overall, I'll refrain from doing a deep-dive, song by song breakdown, and let your ears do the exploring. Honestly, any words I write just won't do this release justice.

--RE

P.s. good job nurturing the Melody Mercury project to a proper release Lokey. Your experiences over the past decade have clearly not gone to waste. I see you and your masked society, and if this is what you're bringing to the table, keep it coming. At least someone is still carrying the torch.

╔» • You Are Pretty Pathetic • Episode 01 «╗





Greetings Minions of Internet Land!
Robust Enigma here, and today I wanted to take you on a bit of a background for this new series.

Today is the first episode of You Are Pretty Pathetic, or YAPP for short, and my goal here is to explore the nature of humans through social media, and expose their ignorance through social commentary.

So far, I was a bit limited on submissions, and I still don't feel like I found that perfect "voice" yet, however, the serious tone does work well in a way that I'm not quite sure how to quantify. In all reality, I imagined this show being a little more playful, though due to my inability to keep up a steady editing schedule, and various other things, I decided that enough was enough, and there was no better time than now to share this project with the world.

Currently, I am still working on another series, as well as hopefully, keeping this series going thanks to submissions from awesome Minions like yourself. So, if you see something, say something!

Anyways, enjoy your day, and let me know what you think. :D

Breaking Through: Priest - The Cross (Official Video)

Greetings Minions of Internet Land!

Robust Enigma here with another new series, "Breaking Through."

In this series, I bring you some of my favorite new music from artists that you may have missed otherwise.

Today's featured song is from Priest, an electronic synthpop group from Stockholm Sweden, signed with Lövely Records. Priest is rumored to share members with the original lineup of Ghost, as a sort of personal project.

The Cross is yet another sinfully dark synthpop/electronic single heavily marked with their uniquely haunting vocals. In the official video, we get a front row seat as a man is seemingly tormented through his dreams, as he struggles to confront his future, based on his past decisions. The lyrics play heavily into this concept as we hear lines such as "Count the wasted years like burnt out cigarettes."

These stylised videos are typical of Priest's unique nature to mix symbolism through anonymity, in a way that breeds chilling mystery.



If you are interested in finding out more about Priest, you can hit up their official fanpage at Facebook.com/PriestOfficial.

Enjoy. >:)

I'll see you all on the other side... --RE

The Best Explanations: Jörg Sprave of The Slingshot Channel - On Viral Videos

Greetings Minions of Internet Land!

Robust Enigma here, bringing you the start of a possible series of articles I would like to title "The Best Explanations." In this series, I present you with my favorite informative videos from around the net.

For this first entry, I bring you a video from one of my Tuber Idols, Jörg Sprave.

Jörg Sprave from The Slingshot Channel is one of the heros that Internet Land needs to cherish. He has produced hundreds of hours worth of content on self defense, weaponizing everyday objects, and copious amounts of slingshots!

Today, I stumbled across him, giving back to the YouTube community again, as he frequently does, by dropping a knowledge bomb on us, built from personal experience.

It is a wonderful journey to listen to him speak about his personal experiences with Viral Videos, and how he has continuously slam dunked his way to success, following his passions to fruition.





If you don't quite have the time to enjoy the whole video, he has a PDF copy of his essay titled: "On Viral Videos"

With that, thank you all for checking in, and I will see you all on the other side.

I am really happy with the way this video came out, and how wonderful the food tasted.

This has been my first on-location filming in quite some time, so saying I got lucky with fair weather, and mostly clear audio is an understatement. :P

Anyways, enjoy the video, and I hope you go try it for yourself soon! :D

"We support the current standards of ISP's being classified under Title II regulations. We oppose any change that would remove this classification. The internet needs to be an open, and honest, field where ISP's and Telecom Companies can't abuse the system for their own personal interest. There have been multiple cases where this has happened before, specifically in the case of Comcast throttling Netflix, and we can NOT let this sort of thing happen again.
