Today I bring to you the concept art for the official animated music video for “Pink”. Yes I know I this song was released over 2 years ago, but you know what, I DON’T CARE! It is still one of my favorite songs I’ve released and it’s FINALLY getting video treatment! The video will be fully animated and illustrated by my friend and Quad Optic brother Kartune, of The Lower Class. We will be doing a Kick Starter campaign to raise funds because, well…nothing is free! Yes we’re friends but animation is hard work and time consuming so paying him is only right. I’ll be releasing more info about the Kick Starter later next month with some cool stuff!! For now just peep the art! I’m excited because this is my 1st music video ever!
The 1st 5 people to reblog and like this will receive a FREE physical copy of “The Cherry Blossom Effect: Trance(End) Edition" the offer will only be available for 24 hours so be one of the 1st 5! I’ll contact you via message for your address!

Hey guys I’m back to let you in on what’s been going on with me! If you have the time please check out the website/page for the artistic collective I’m a part of. We go by many names Quad Optic Hoodlums is just one of them. The collective consists of creative minds (mainly recording artists at this time) that came together in Austin/San Marcos Texas. The artists consist of- Curbside Jones (me), DKTHGK, The Lower Class, and Dirty Rice. We’re planning out some awesome things for 2014 so please stay tuned!!
I was thinking about my life and how certain events, situations, and conversations have molded me into who I am now at age 23. I couldn’t include everything so I chose the points that were weighing me down this past year. Dependency/Independence, Love, Kindness, Stress, and Recognition of ones social standing.
Of course I made the beat…enjoy!!! I’ll be back later to discuss some very very serious and cool stuff! ^___^
Today marks the 2 year anniversary of The Cherry Blossom Effect: Endless Dream Theory! with that said lets take a walk through time! HAPPY BDAY CBE!!!
The original version of the project not only helped boost my levels as an artist but it also helped me find a sound with my production and writing! The project was a “success” in my eyes being that people all the way in Japan were hip to it and even buying physical copies of it! This was my 1st project sponsored by websites, so shout out to Back2Pluto and ReUpSpot for the help. I was also fortunate enough to perform some songs off of the album at SXSW in 2012.

A couple months after the release I decided to put out a remix album of of the CBE. Why? Well if P.Diddy can do that kind of stuff so can CurbDiddy! I put the vocals for the CBE out on the internet and producers grabbed them and put some beats under them! It gave the project a revamped, new feel. I also added my own remixes of some things on there and a bonus track =D

Around this time last year I was going to drop the remixed/remastered version of the CBE but it was lacking in extra content. Why present the same project twice with better quality? So I put the idea off for a while and worked on new bonus material. Since the album stretched from the US to Japan I decided to enlist a Japanese producer and DJ by the name of FreeDesign to help bridge the gap, along with UK producer Phill Blanks. I later added the song, “Hot Chicks x Arcade Sticks (Round 2)" to the mix which would count as a remix for "Hot Chicks x Arcade Sticks”. Still not satisfied I decided to get an illustrated cover and added a digital booklet which covers the inspiration behind EVERY song on the album, an alternate cover I designed, and wallpapers for computer desktops which I also designed! There’s more in store for this campaign…the closing will be the music video for “Pink”.

Thanks for all your support and love! I work hard for myself as well as all those who show support!
I know it has been a while since I’ve posted anything…I suck at being an artist lol Well, lets see what’s new with me…I just got back from LA on Saturday, I decided to take a week long vacation. As for music, I’ve been working with a friend of mine, Jiraiya on a joint EP. I’ve been doing the production and he’s been doing the rapping. I have high hopes for this EP because it’s something new and refreshing for me. I started working on my new EP which will be released sometime next year. So far it’s in the planning/sound mapping stage. Other than that I’ve been watching A LOT of anime and I’m going to start writing reviews soon on Myanimelist.net if you have one add me as a friend http://myanimelist.net/profile/CurbsideJones
