Project Bombs and Eternity - weekly update 6-7

I apologies for the lack of updates these last couple weeks. Especially with the beginning of my new cooking blog that I really want to work on some more. I have been really busy with school and life these last coupe weeks and probably will continue to be extremely busy for the next three or four weeks. However, mid to late November I will be almost completely done with school. At this time I want to sit down and create a lot of or possibly all of the drum and vocals files and possibly begin work on pro instruments as well as get back to regular updates. Until I finish with school for this semester I don't think I will be posting regular songs weekly but I will be fixing expired links and answering comments with the possibility of a couple of recipes here and there because there are a few I need to rewrite for my collection.

I would also like to thank all the regular visitors and the non regular visitors for getting almost 10,000 views on this blog. It is something I never thought possible. I thank you for all the feedback on PBaE and my thoughts on things.

I apologies again for the lack of current and near future updates. Next semester I will try to plan my work more efficiently so I do not run into this problem again.

Project Bombs and Eternity - weekly update 5

This week's update is a little late but I managed to almost get everything caught up. I haven't had a lot of time  the last couple weeks to work on songs between real life things, school, and my PC boosting sessions. Hopefully by next week I will be completely caught up.

Song Changes
I did a test run of the Homecoming file that I had a number of messages about. I got 100% on my test run (picture included below) so it is possible to get 100% with the file it is just very hard to sync it up properly. That being said it is incredibly difficult, if not impossible, to get gold stars on it. The top score on Scorehero is lower than the score from my run and it ranked 12th on the Xbox leaderboards. So to make this achievement a whole lot less difficult I have made a vocals file for Homecoming. I had a look at Beatle Beat 12 that I had a few comments about. It turns out I put in the wrong BPM when I was making the file. I changed it and re uploaded the file so it should be working properly now. I also made a file containing all of Tre's Greatest hits for those that need to complete the whole set. I moved some of Tre's Greatest Hits, and all of the Rock Band format files for Guitar Hero Van Halen, Guitar Hero World Tour, Rock Band, Rock Revolution, and Guitar Hero World Tour.
Edit - Homecoming gold star cutoff on drums is possible and is around 380,000.

This Week's Songs
This week on drums I made Rock Band format files for Ain't Talkin' 'Bout Love, And the Cradle Will Rock, American Idiot, Burnout, Chump, Gratitude, No Sleep 'Till Brooklyn, Schism, and Trapped Under Ice. As mentioned above, I also added Homecoming on vocals. As always vocals videos can be found here and drum files can be found here.

Blog Updates
I made some changes to the blog this week. I added an option to subscribe by email for those of you that want to get post updates by email. I also added some links to useful posts in this blog, my YouTube channel, and my new cooking blog. I started a cooking blog last week to share recipes I have either found, created, or modified. I will probably be updating it weekly so if any of you like cooking you should have a look at it. It can be found here.

Video of the Week
I didn't have time to make a video this week so I will try to double up next week.

Project Bombs and Eternity - weekly update 4

I was not able to release any new songs this week because I was preparing for the Kane and Lynch leaderboard reset. I was able to get the achievements thanks to a very dedicated group that I wish I could have stayed around to help. It is amazing what the group has been able to do so far. Huge thank you to Shotgunbilly555, TSG Dwaggie, and Protium for keeping this session going.

It has been brought to my attention that the Homecoming MIDI file has some issues. I don't know if I am going to be able to fix it but next week I might try to double up and make 10 songs and include in those Homecoming on vocals so all of the songs for that achievement will be gold starable.

Something pretty unrelated I wanted to throw this out there to any readers. I do a lot of cooking and search long and hard for recipes that I think are really great and would like to share them. I was wondering if any readers would be interested in me including a recipe of the week or recipe every two weeks either in the weekly update or a separate blog/post. I know it's completely unrelated but if anybody is interested post a comment or something.

The video this week is an achievement guide for the Celebrity and True Elite achievements in Kane and Lynch Dead Men.
