Went on vacation and made my first music video... pretty amateur but fun to make. To my new song "Without Lights and Things". Yah I'm still making music, just not on Newgrounds anymore. The song can be bought on itunes, but if you want it for free just leave your email and I'll send it to you. Chow.
Dear anyone who stumbles across this relic of a page.
I'm not really uploading here anymore... the exposure is almost zero and what good is making music no one listens to?
It took a long long time (years if I'm correct) to finally make a song I figured was worth 99 cents.
With that said... you can now find me on iTunes. Probably the best music I've ever made can now be found on there, under "Daniel Stang". As of now, there is only one single on there, but more is to come. Naturally I'd never deprive anyone of music if they can't afford it, so if you'd like it for free, just shoot me a message and I'll let you have whatever you want.
Take care guys. And thanks for the years of support.
**Updated News** You can now like my music on facebook. http://facebook.com/milkmand4n
So, I've been working on a lot of covers lately. Mostly it's a good way to work on a more professional sound by having an already refined product to compare it to. But it's also a fantastic way to put my own spin on songs I already enjoy. I'll be releasing my cover of "Nothing" by The Script shortly. A friend recommended this song, and I enjoyed making the cover.
My question is, do my few listeners enjoy me doing covers? Would you prefer I stuck to writing originals (even if it takes forever for me to be inspired enough to write one)? Do you guys have any good suggestions for future covers?
And by the way. Thank you. Thank you so much to everyone who's listened to me work through my music all these years. It's been the greatest hobby ever. I bring all my music equipment to work now, and do my best to work on it there. It isn't ideal, but it helps fill the time in between emergency calls. I work a 4 day on 4 day off, on call 24 hours a day, shift with the Ambulance service. It's been great. I truly truly love my job, but that doesn't mean I've lost my passion for music. I just wish I could pay for more schooling, so maybe one day I'll sell a song so good it'll put my through more school ;). Take care all you crazy people. Stick to your passions and you'll always be happy.
In the next week or so I'll be posting a new cover. The Song?... "I will Follow you into the Dark"... Milkman-Dan Style.
***So... this girl, has got to be one of the dumbest I have ever come to converse with... get a load of these two replies I came online to****
How did you write these songs when actually I have the lyrics and Eddie is not my boyfriend nor will he ever be I don't like him that way and actually they were written by my boyfriend to has them all in pencil and paper..
BumpkinBaby: *This one is a little more threatening, and twice as funny*
Btw Your lying because I listened to your songs then the others and guess what the voice is different! Soo there fore it's not your songs and you know what stop fucking posting the messages I say to you on your stupid thing or I will fucking hunt you down now that I actually have your name
Haha... does anyone else notice she loves to say "Hunt you down" a lot?... Who knows, maybe she's an international spy. Or an internet tough girl... either way, heres my reply.
Congratulations Miss Bumpkin, you are officially the most amusing idiot I've ever met.
Alrighty, I have a couple hundred ways of proving that I am the one who wrote these songs.
For starters... just because someone has the lyrics on pen and paper, that means absolutely nothing. I post the lyrics to all of my songs, it's not exactly rocket science for someone to write them down.
So how would you like me to prove it???... I can send you a video of me playing the songs in my studio while singing them... I can send you the source files used to create the songs... I can send you outtakes from the songs that I didn't like... I can send you the contacts of noted artists who I have worked with to create the songs... I can write a song for you entitled "You're a Gullible Idiot" in G-Minor... I can also show you my lyrics on a piece of paper if you want, since that seems to be all you need to make you believe I wrote it.
Last and not least, why don't you make a legal claim that I am profiting off of someone else's work, then take me to court.... so I can counter-sue for wasting everybody's time. If there is one thing I hate more than anything else on this earth... it's people who take credit for other peoples work. Especially my work.
This Eddie character clearly knew you are an absolute retard, and capitalized on it by writing my lyrics down and saying he wrote the songs. What's even funnier is that he took off and won't answer your emails, so now you are stuck here defending a no-talent idiot who doesn't even like you.
P.S. - My voice sounds different in some of the songs, because different effects are used. Essentially... it's the same high toned guy (me) singing in each one.... Ask Eddie... I'm sure he knows all about Song Writing and Vocal Effects
P.S.S. - Go ahead and hunt me down. I'll be waiting right here. I love company. Bring Flowers.
At this point I'm not even sure if I should take this person seriously. I find it hard to believe anyone like this could figure out how to turn the computer on... let alone send me a message.
Maybe I will write a song intitled "You're a Gullible Idiot" in G-Minor.
So... because a lot of different people have heard my work, I often get a lot of private messages for various reasons. Once in a while... I get a really off the wall message. This one, I felt I had to share with you guys... because it just made me laugh a little. Some guy named Eddie is in deep shit...
Eddie I know it's you I will hunt you down I swear! Now answer my fucking emails!
Calm down there sport. First things first...
I am not Eddie... in fact, I dare say I'm not sure I've even met an Eddie before... well maybe once, but he was kinda drunk I think.
My name is Daniel Stang (thus the name Milkman-Dan)... I live in Edmonton, Alberta... and you can confirm this by emailing me at Stangiel@telus.net (Again because my last name is Stang).
Now I don't know what this Eddie guy did to you, or what he's said to you to make you want to hunt him down... but I can see you're pretty hostile. I can also see why he won't email you... because you appear to be fucking crazy. I wouldn't email you either.
Next time, perhaps you should explain yourself better before sending people you don't know messages of that nature. Seriously... you are the wtf of the week.
AKA: Daniel Stang
AKA: Not Eddie
Seriously guys haha... this isn't the first time other people have claimed to be me and had their girlfriends send me angry messages. I love being on the interweb...
Also just so you know... I try and answer all PM's... and I do read all reviews.
Sorry but if your not Eddie how did you get all these songs? I know everyone of them but not from here see Eddie is the one that sings in them but he took off to Calgary and never spoke to me or his friend again so I'm not hostile I'm just trying to find some kind of way of contacting him. I'm sorry I sounded hostile...I actually thought maybe I found him....D:
I messaged her back... to explain to her that if this Eddie guy is claiming to have sung my songs... she has been taken for a serious fool. I'm not sure I entirely believe her though... what an awkward predicament. I would love to have a word with this Eddie guy... since he apparently lives in Calgary... I think it would be worth a 3 hour drive to kick him in the teeth.
I have a dream.
I dream that one day, a really talented flash animator... will animate one of my lyrical pieces.
That is all :(.
*P.S.* More music coming your way...
Just thought I'd update people on things going on in my life... for those who care and those who don't. During the summer I was working at a kids camp as a counselor. It was good times, but I was completely unable to make music... therefor... no submission. After the summer I came back... and got right back into it. Made two submissions (Yesterday and Here you lay) as well.
However I am now engaged in academic studies. You see I'm in school to be a Paramedic (starting with EMT). Seems kinda weird to a lot of you, but it's something I've always wanted to do. This is going to take up a lot of my time, so the submissions will be few.
Also... if you're on facebook and want to put my music and many others on your page. Download the app "Ilike" and search for Daniel Stang.
I guess that is all guys. Take care.
Wow, Where do I begin?
I guess the first order of bussiness is to say to each and every one of you, a very Merry Christmas.
What is it about Christmas that brings out the best in almost everything? I hope you all have been spreading the love and cheer this holiday begs for.
As for "Sand Castles", my newest creation.... all I have to say is "Wow". Since it hit front page it recieved over 100 reviews!... Thats a record for me... a huge record. So my only guess is that you guys liked it :). Thank you so much to everyone who reviewed. I can't possibly reply to all of them in time for the holidays... but know that I read EVERY review I get... I never miss one.
I know the voice wasn't up to par for some... but others didn't mind it. This encourages me, and in the new year I'll be actively seeking Voice lessons. I would also like to speak to someone who has experience setting up audio for Vocals... you know... the more technical side of things. We shall see what is to come in the future, but I'm excited.
Many of you have mentioned that I should send these things to Record Labels. You must believe me when I tell you there just isn't a market for my kinda amatuer work yet. Besides... what would you rather do... buy my cd or hop on newgrounds and talk to me about my latest work? I've thought about opening up myself to Donations to purchase equipment and VST's... but thats a little much don't you think? If you ever wanted to donate to the Milkman-dan fund however... I suppose sending anything via Paypal to firstname.lastname@example.org would probably work. But seriously... i don't expect anything at all, I just get asked alot if I have a cd they could buy... and well thats the closest you'll probably ever come to purchasing MMD product.
By the way. My name is Daniel Stang. I live in Edmonton, Alberta... you know... that city in Western Canada. I mean really?... Milkman-Dan?... haha I made that name when I joined Newgrounds and didn't care about submitting audio... and then... well... it kinda stuck.
So I guess my last question to you guys is... what is really close to your hearts... what keeps you awake at night thinking?... I'd like an idea for my next song :). Also... do you like the piano more than piano + different instruments?
Just talk to me people... I like you... your my family :)
