So a while back, I came up with the idea to create a band to make goofy songs about pretty much anything; I call us (it's just me, really) The Struggle Monkeys. Until now, the only songs I've completed involve video games. This one is about Dark and Light, a game similar to ARK: Survival Evolved, but instead of dinosaurs, it's got fantasy creatures. It's also missing one key feature that ARK revolves around: poop. This song laments the lack of said feature.

*note - it never made it all the way through the mixing process due to some timing issues with hi-hats and such, so pardon the grainy sound. Enjoy! Or don't! Fuck it! It also cuts off abruptly due to my giving up. The second song I have up there I wrote when I was playing Darkfall: Rise of Agon. In the first iteration of Darkfall, this fella Jonah Veil and his cronies were not just the best players on the server, they were dicks about it. Fast forward to 2017, and they're back it again, this time under the name "Dune Rats". Darkfall is a full-loot, open-world PvP game, and a player posted his displeasure in a long rant on the official forums after being bindcamped for hours. I contacted Mr. Veil and received his thumbs up to write a song about their douchebaggery, and that's the second song that may start playing immediately after One Request.



One Request, Udadted

I re-read my post and realized I didn't comment that this song is about poop, yet I really liked it. LOL Who would have thought that a 57 year old woman would really enjoy a song about 'poop'... LOL Go figure.

Haha, thanks, you two. It's a little hobby I enjoy, especially when I get to make songs about poop! And for the record, Zee, I'm 42, and I'm about 100% certain poop jokes/songs will never get old. But I'm a dude, so, yeah. :D

I updated the song so it doesn't abruptly stop; now it fades out (finally figured out how to do that). I also added an old song I found while going through all my music files; it's a song about ARK: Survival Evolved and the server we played on back in the day, Arktipus.
