PREPARE FOR TERROR, PUNY HUMANS!!!

IT'S TIME FOR MY ANNUAL YEAR IN REVIEW!
What did I make my minion do in 2018? Well for starters, I wrote 10 original songs that I forced him to record:
32 Lines About 24 Clones
Trilobites Are Awesome
I Rolled a 20 When I Met You
The Droid I'm Looking For
End Credit Song
When I Am Galactic Emperor
Jimmy the Halloween Velociraptor
Happy Little Trees
Dear Die Hard
...and I turned those songs, along with a bonus instrumental, into an album!
I also had my minion cover Meri Amber's Pizza and Ice Cream.
Coincidentally, Meri Amber also covered one of my songs this year.
My minion was interviewed by Fandomania.
I was nominated for an Aurora Award for Robots vs Monsters. So that's pretty cool.
And I made my minion play two concerts and attend a few conventions to spread the word of my incredible moistenedness.
Speaking of concerts, keep April 12th open.
"Old News" is an oxymoron. But here it is, anyway.
