I’m heading out on vacation, so I’ll see ya the week of Feb. 5!
Until then, (1) you’re in good hands with Amanda flying solo, and (2) I leave you with “Poupi’s incredible adventures !” by Komiku, which I stumbled across today while searching for public domain music for videos. It’s 70 songs of glory, tagged on the Free Music Archive as folk/soundtrack/chiptune/instrumental, and I am all about it.
From the album description, which goes on for a very long time after this: “It’s the story of Poupi (they/them/their), a cute little non gendered doggo. They know that their is a prophecy that they have to work on, and they can only work on one week before the prophecy is achieved.” Along their adventures, Poupi works with Mister Paillettes (Mister Glitters), a “handsome glitter with a crooner voice,” competes in a dance contest with a gang of alley cats, “chills a bit” with Prince Cheese Burger, and more.
Their Bandcamp is also very good and fun. The only rule for using their music is to not be oppressive.
