We've been busting ASS on making content! Below you'll see an overview of some of the content in question, but first, please join our Discord server!


If that link doesn't work, try copy/pasting or typing this url into your web browser or search bar: https://dsc.gg/s3n


First up, most recently I created this brief intro to Discord from the viewpoint of someone unfamiliar with gamer culture in general. As the internet grows more decisive, we learn how much we really just want to be the stars of our own show, leaders of our own communities, and selective of the clubs and networks you participate in... for this reason, Discord is increasing in popularity, so naturally I get a lot of questions from my non-gamer (and even some gamer) friends... This should clear up most of that!

If you want to see more, leave some comments either here or on YouTube and I'll try and get you more info/content. This is the beginning of something kind of big, so fingers crossed, and LET'S GO!!!

Hey, gang!


Just dropped the 3rd episode of the new "Second Judgement" show on YouTube! Check out this playlist I put together by clicking here, or you can just watch below. Remember to like and subscribe!



The new show is of course a spin-off of the podcast we've been doing for almost a year now, "Everything and Nothing," which you can listen to on Spotify by clicking here. The latest episode was recorded live today and will be available on Spotify and everywhere you listen to podcasts on Tuesday, which is our regular release schedule, so tune into the Smirk Studios website for more fresh content weekly!


Last but not least, I uploaded our first run of MUNDAZE (my new after-lunch guitar jam) to YouTube which you can access by clicking here or watching below. MUNDAZE goes live on the Smirk Studios LIVE STREAM on Mondays at 2pm and goes for about 2.5 hours, and it's some groovy jams that you can leave on while you work from home!


That's about all the news from Smirk Studios. Be on the lookout for a new cartoon in the future, and please keep checking back to smirkstudiosink.com for more great stuff!


Thanks for stopping by!

From the minds that brought you Rainbow Electric comes the next hot thing in live music!


Introducing the first ever weekly after-lunch livestream JAM! Tune in to help some of Portland's most iconic musicians adjust to a world of musical streaming by simply tuning in and enjoying the musical vibrations at whatever volume you choose!


The stream will be 100% FREE!!! We humbly accept your donations at Venmo and PayPal @smirkstudios, and I hope you'll help us make the first one a success so that we can transition back into the regular world with as little damage as possible. Thanks in advance for your generous listening ears, and we look forward to jamming with you all!


Let's take the sting out of Monday... let's get together for MUNDAZE After-Lunch Jams!

I had a lot of fun with the script and the voices on this, so I really hope you can appreciate that. More to come from Smirk Studios, and don't forget about The Boros Animation Blog! That's going to be really cool when it's finished.


That's all for now! TTYL!
