Yes, the same George Buzinkai who has contributed so much to the soundtrack of Homestuck including Doctor, Explore, Endless Climb, and Firefly has been through a lot lately.
Despite having composed some of the most identifiable and beloved themes in the Homestuck soundtrack, George Buzinkai has been befallen some of the worst luck. In the last year he has suffered many hardships while attempting to pay his way through college to pursue an animation degree with little-to-no financial support. He has had little time to create music between Hurricane Sandy turning his life upside-down for a month and relocating several times throughout the past months.
Most recently his house burned down, leaving him homeless, uninsured, and destroying all his old music equipment. In one fell swoop, Buzinkai has lost all of his work including his Homestuck music and animation projects.
If you have anything to spare, please visit his homepage at buzinkai.net and donate to his Paypal. This isn’t a fundraiser - there’s no rewards - this is simply about George’s well-being.
Buzinkai has been a calm and courteous contributor to Homestuck from the beginning and almost never speaks up until he has something to add. He doesn’t vent about his hardship over the Internet - he has no Tumblr and only 82 posts on the MSPA forum - and only brought these problems to us because he wants us to know he’s trying his best to contribute to Homestuck but just can’t find the time or resources.
So if you have a moment please share his site buzinkai.net with other Homestuck fans and give whatever you can. He has never asked for a favor of any kind from us until now - we hope you’ll help.
