This is the "Electric Loss" Master.
We need a RADIO EDIT of this version between 2:30 - 3:00 in length.
The "Electric Loss" Music Video will then be edited to the Radio Edit Remix.
Please contribute all "Electric Loss" Radio Edits here: http://www.hitrecord.org/records/873508
And now I proudly present to you a new cut of our collaborative HITRECORD short film "In a City." I was really excited to get to make two versions of "In a City" so we could explore a wider range of cities, cultures and experiences.
This version was shot by 54 cinematographers from all over the world, and it is so, so powerful to see the diversity of scenes and locations.
This short film's a testament to the global scope of the HITRECORD community, and I loved getting to work on it with you.
My thanks to all of the cinematographers, musicians, writers, and VO artists who contributed to this collaboration. I hope you love it as much as I do.
Thanks again <3
A quick one while listening to "Yes, we're sinking" by eaneikciv which I heard from brookeduckart 's "raindrops (reMIX-02) animation . Lovely records which I kinda fell deeply in love with. haha
Hi there everyone, I wanted to update the community and announce that we have officially locked the final mix for "Of the Future," the grand musical finale of HITRECORD ON TV: Season Two! :)
Since we had a bit more time to allow us to include a few more contributions to the song and, in the process, to make a gesture underscoring hitRECord's genuine respect for everyone in our community, I'm happy to unveil our final (no...REALLY!) mix of "Of the Future." I'll detail the changes below, and the mix has been resourced accordingly.
The tremendous contributions from our talented community of players and singers have turned this song into something we should all be proud of. And having now lived a lifetime of email correspondence with spaceship throughout the process of refining the lyrics and producing this RECord, I'm really pleased (but not surprised) to be able to say that our considerable efforts have been well worth the time, since they've yielded such a good song to carry us out of season 2 of hitRECord on TV. So, thanks again to everyone who contributed parts small and large to collectively build spaceship's beautiful song into a beautiful recording! :)
Notes on final mix:
--Added vocals to the verse 3 choir (LexiScherr, Metaphorest, Kouralily, Robo_J, RyThoJo) and rebalanced things accordingly.
--Raised the strings level.
--Added a slide GTR from Robo_J to the bridge for yet MORE drama towards the end.
--Removed Spaceship's monophonic synth part in verse 2. It was placed so low that it was basically inaudible, yet theoretically was still taking up some mix space in that part of the song.
--Adjusted the timing of the delay effect on Spaceship's vox in the intro section ("the time..the time…the time…the time…")
--Raised the piano level from around 2:50 - 2:54.
--Pushed Nels Cline's final GTR level at around 3:16, the very last distorted wail and hit.
--Added KamPAIGN's harmony vocals to the end of verse 3, on "…That's the way…"
This is the version that was screened at Sundance 2012!
Fucking vinegar, man. You don’t even know.
It’s like an alibi, a designated driver, a wingman, and a fabric softener all in one.
Vinegar will fucking clean anything. I once threw Pappap’s chili against the wall, just to see if it could handle that shit. Fucking of course it could. It’s fucking vinegar!
I can’t even watch those crime shows on TV anymore—I’m always thinking, “Dude wouldn’t have gotten caught if he hosed down the tub with vinegar.”
My brother Craig? He says Jesus already came back, but he came back as vinegar—how else can you explain all of the miracles that come out of that fucking bottle? I don’t know about that, but I did thank God when it got the puke stain out of the carpet before Mom came home.
This one time, I was at a party. Everyone starting lighting up and Alyssa was all, “You guys! My parents are totally going to smell that later!” I just strolled up to her and was like, “One part vinegar, one part lemon juice, 100% freshness.” Vinegar will get you laid.
Vinegar saved my life once. I was walking home from work when this group of guys come out of fucking nowhere and start hassling me—“Aren’t you Craig’s brother? He owes us money!” Shit was getting real. Then, bam! Apple Cider Vinegar rolls up and tells them to back the fuck off, they were on his turf. And you know what? They did.
I’m telling you, vinegar can do fucking anything.
Nothing smart, or at least not very
Nothing naked, well not yet
No big deal
No first prize
Nothing much to give or get
Nothing now but me and you
Nothing more, thanks, that'll do

How do I explain strawberry bootlaces?
Well. I suppose they are kind of liquorice... they are thin strands of red chewy stuff that's meant to taste like strawberry; but, just like every other strawberry "flavoured" thing, they don't really taste like strawberry. They're still delicious, however, and you can find them in plenty of shops, watching, waiting to catch a customer's fancy. So you see them, and you buy a pack, intending to share them, or at least make them last, but you end up eating the whole bag in an afternoon. Sated, you relax in the knowledge of a few pence well spent.
Then you realise when your parents call you in for dinner that there's no way you can manage a full meal after consuming such a quantity of confectionary, and that in this moment you are experiencing the exact mythical instance of "spoiling your dinner" about which you were warned so many times as a child, but it's too late now and you can't lose face by admitting your parents are right so you keep quiet and eat the whole meal and even have second and third helpings just to hide the shame that your parents can't see but you imagine is so evident in your every movement. Sweaty, nervous, you shovel every new mouthful of wholesome, home cooked family food into your trembling mouth and though you were full after just a few bites, you can neither spit it out nor stop eating.
You spend the rest of the evening certain that you're going to either throw up or split at the sides and you go to throw away the wrapper, but you notice to your delight and horror that there is something in there still, something red and stringy; there is a single strawberry bootlace still inside the wrapper and in spite of your already full-to-bursting stomach and your sense of self-disgust you triumphantly peel the final sticky remnant from the pack and eat it savouring every last drop of artificial flavouring and knowing for sure that there can be no benevolent god that could allow such magnificent unhappiness to flourish in the form of a mere child's treat.
That, my friend, is a strawberry bootlace.
(Sometimes I just love hanging with my 4year old niece Gabrielle. Big thanks to her. Please check out some others in the resource.)
There once was a boy named Skip.
He loved to skip rocks; but he didn't have any friends.
The rocks were(was) his friends.
One day he skipped a rock really far!
He heard a loud noise.
"What was that?!" said Skip.
"It was me!!"
"My name is Bobby and you hit me with a rock!!"
Bobby was a Sea Turtle and he was mad.
"Why did you hit me?!!"
"I'm sorry Bobby! I just love to skip rocks."
"Skipping rocks? I used to skip rocks when I was a wee Turtle!"
"Yes I did!!"
"Will you skip rocks with me?!"
"Well of course!!"
Skip was so happy, he hadn't smiled this big in a long time.
He wasn't just a lonely boy skipping rocks.
He had a real friend; and they skipped rocks every day!
..... or is it? Huge thanks to everyone that contributed!
Here is the final version of "Above It All" that appears on our RE: Space episode of HITRECORD ON TV.
Wordplay a friend (http://hitrecord.org/users/silverladder) thought up: "... My mind is constantly running; constantly playing with words, even when I'm not consciously doing it. No joke. So the phrase 'bowl of oatmeal' was in my head this morning... My mind started messing with the letters in the words and suddenly I thought, 'Owl Of Boatmeal!'"
I like to call the squid Quaken.
This fellow called Fred,
Instead of a head,
Had a turnip on top of his neck
And the children would jeer,
For he looked pretty queer,
And the grown-ups would shout ‘bloody heck!’
Twas a troublesome sight,
To go walking at night,
And stumble upon the strange chap
So to stem the surprise,
In shocked onlookers eyes,
Fred fashioned himself a large cap
Then he drove into town,
But with his hat down,
He couldn’t see where he was headed
A terrible crash,
Turned Fred’s head to mash,
Yes, he was most certainly deaded
The moral herein,
Is that one cannot win,
When ashamed of one’s natural quirks
So parade them with pride,
Never hide them inside,
For fear of offending life’s jerks
Here is the final version of "Oh, It's Fantastic!" that appears on our RE: Fantasy episode of HITRECORD ON TV.

If I read our story backwards, it’s about how I un-broke your heart, and then we were happy until one day you forgot about me forever.
I love happy endings.

Here is the final version of "Beastly Beauty" that appears on our RE: Fantasy episode of HITRECORD ON TV.
Once again, let me reiterate that RandomProcessVol2.0's "Night road" is truly a thing of beauty, and this remix was a mere consequence of its brilliance.
The original was unfortunately deleted off the site (was previously at http://www.hitrecord.org/records/967448, also located at http://hitrecord.tumblr.com/post/32969102520/on-the-road-poster-remix-by-fractaldust), but here it is again if anyone wants it :)
