This is from a series I did based on women eating various objects to make them feel various stages of love. This one reflects Lust, as she eats butterflies she feels flutters in her stomach for someone.
Materials: Stone life casts, lace, paint, butterflies, wood panel with lace.
My son handed this to me when I picked him up for school today. It made me laugh out loud. He is 11, well almost 12. He said it's his first tiny story, and he wanted me to add it to the Monster City Collaboration :)
In certain social circles, I have violated two major rules: 1.) I had the audacity to turn 30 without having had a baby, and 2.) I have never read anything by David Sedaris. It’s dif...
The day dawned bright and crisp. The sun was warmer than it had felt for a long time. It was not the end of winter, not quite, but it seemed to be a sure promise that the end was nearing.
A figure was shuffling past her on the road, movements jerky and uneven. A limp, she guessed. They wore a hood and balaclava so that their face was concealed. Not a bad idea, Michelle thought ru...
Madame Serpent had angry snakes in her hair,
And she was compared to Medusa but did not care,
For when Medusa tried to turn her into a stone,
Her hungry snakes bit into Medusa's neck bone.
As Medusa lay slowly bleeding and about to die,
Madame Serpent couldn't help but to spit in her eye.
I hope you enjoy my lil story Lyn! And of course you as well, Crimson! =)
inspired by whattheydontsay's entry in the dialogue tales! collab called "Hand-Me-Down". Also couldnt resist using meaganmoores's amazing little bear from "Worth it".
As a graduate of the Harvard School of Feline Law, Archibald Whiskers III was not amused by “cheezburgers” and whether or not he could “has them.”
I cycle down the street keeping my head really low
Staring at loving couples everywhere I go
The other seat on my bicycle is still empty

It's not very often that I drop one project midway to work on another, but as soon as I heard/read wirrow's 'Give me all the flickering lights' and then heard RoboJ's version with the synth score, I just knew I had to work on it.
Extra props to LilacAmy for putting together such an amazing album of resources!
[I wasn't quite happy with the text on this one, so I tweaked it and reRECored - http://hitrecord.org/records/719816 ]
Another "off the path" kind of reMIX and an ode to René Magritte's "This is not a pipe," but in Little Red Riding Hood style.
kittypimms "the knife as a metaphor" text record brought this to my mind.
Second installment of the Grandpa stories. Grandpa:
God damn. There was a path, alright.. wide enough for the van. The four-wheel drivers had a hard time getting up there, but I made it, some way. We got way the hell, halfway up that mountain, and pulled off into this area. He said, “over here.” He used to ride his motorcycle up there, you know. He said there’s a beautiful cliff overhang up there where we can camp out. It’ll be real nice. Real thick woods, up there. We kind of wiggled through there, finally parked the damn thing—got out all our camping gear and everything, and sure enough, there was a beautiful, there was a ledge, almost flat, just about like this, that kinda hung over the side of the mountain, and you could see for… for a hundred miles. Just beautiful scenes, out there.
Oh, about ten thirty heard this thundering off in the distance.
Randy and I on the mountain…
Over there lightning doesn’t strike from up there down to the ground. Lightning strikes, for some crazy reason, it jumps from the ground up,
and a lot of times it’s horizontal and goes like that.
It kept moving towards us, moving towards us
And Randy said, “Oh, relax, uncle. It’ll be fine, it’s not going here.” Then we heard this noise in the bushes back of us—this is all true—kind of a growling sound, you know. Heavy breathing, stuff like that, in the bushes. It was so thick you couldn’t see through ‘em, you know.
There was something there. Some animal. ‘Could have been a bear, ‘could ‘ave been a big bear, up there, ‘could have been a mountain lion, ‘could have been a moose, ‘could have been anything. And uh, i said, “Randy you sure you wan.. uhh… maybe we oughta get out of here. We got enough trouble with that dang system coming towards us, and we.. uhh.. got all that noise right there in the back of us, in the shrubs. You know?”
And he says, “Don’t worry Uncle Vic. I’ve got my knife.” He pulled out a little old damn knife, a blade like this, wouldn’t cut hot butter, you know. I said, “Fuck this!”
Randy and I on the mountain
We saw all kinds of shit!
One night, it was about midnight, and we we loved it. ’Cause the sky there is so clear, and the stars, it’s like you can just reach up there and pick ‘em like berries off of a tree.
And one night we were laying in the backyard, you know, in our—we just threw something out there—in our sleeping bags and we’d just watch the night sky.
No street lights or anything to, you know, just throw everything off. Man, they were, those comets or meteors came streaking across the sky like that from west to east! Little bit north-east, north east. I mean there was just, must have been hundreds of them! Big balls of fire! Red! Just up there, just kind of shootin’ across! I’ve never seen anything like it in all my life.
There was other things that happened, we saw, that would amaze you, i wish you could have seen.
It was great.
I’m going back to Brigham City, one day, just to visit. See if some of my friends are still there.
I really love joe's Nothing Big (who doesn't) so I wanted to make a (silly) cover of it... the lyrics are amazing!
at first I wasn't gonna upload this here, but looks like I did anyway... well, I had fun recording this version anyway! :D I like to make covers that are very different from the original! :P
"My, what big ears you have!"
"The better to hear you with, my dear."
"My, what big eyes you have!"
"The better to see you with, my dear."
I love wirrow's "give me all the flickering lights" poem, and I've been wanting to record some music to it since I first heard it. I had this idea of making music without "real" instruments, but with objects that were not made for playing purposes. Earlier today I thought of glasses, and this is what I came up with. I will upload the audio version later, I just wanted to show you that all the sounds are really coming from glasses ;D maybe this can also be useful as a raw footage?
I never thought the future would bring me such a fall
I never thought a fall could awaken so much love
a love to be proud of
a love I can share
Home has always meant so much to you
never just a building to hold a crowd
and you look on your childhood so fondly
I have never had that pleasure
We all have such busy lives
no one has the time to ask you how you're feeling anymore
and if you did say
'My heart was just broken this morning'
I have not spoken with you for a while
and yet you're always on my mind
do you think of me?
Sometimes it's as if you're right here with me and we have talked ...
in a quest for speedy safety
they built a building helter skelter
but the end came quickly
and the end came sadly
when they all fell out of their ...
Ladies and gentlemen, please feel free to fill in colors, to change the phrases in the picture, because as English isn`t my native language and I`m not good at writing I guess there can be another sentences which would better describe the ideas of making the choice and feminism.
"You're delicious!" He said as he sunk in his teeth, "You're so tender, and sweet, and invitin'!".
"But I'm vicious as fuck, asshole, when I'm messed with", she responded, as she stu...

alright here are just the vocals of my remix of "Young at heart" for re-remix purposes! if you feel like it, do something awesome with this :D (you might hear the piano really quiet, I couldn't get it off, but it's REALLY quiet so I hope it doesn't matter!:D)
Here's a short video that I've been working on - inspired by Metaphorest's Ravens record. This was my first attempt at rotoscoping. I had to remake marcellepallais' hair, I hope I did her justice. I've been playing around a lot with the coloring, and I think I'll increase the contrast and bring out the blues a bit more.
I built and animated the the wings and birds from dgroeneman's "feather drawing" and sojushots' "winter tui". I've uploaded some pre-keyed high-res image sequences of the flying birds, and flapping wings as resources for remixability.
Ideally when I'm done, I'd like the video to span the entire song. I welcome feedback on where to go from here.
On the top of the hill there are three lovely houses,
Mine, Eddie's, and weird Mrs. Bing's.
Mine's the best, though - it's safe from intruders (or mice), as
you can't reach it unless you have wings.
(Thanking my beautiful wife, Orna, for helping me execute this REmix <33)
Not letting her long legs and short wings deter her; Gertrude had finally figured out how to fly like the rest of the birds. She neglected; however, to devise a way back down.
I am walking behind you
where the sun can never see my face
I am walking behind you
where the jokes are always cruel and full of venom
I am walkin...
I told you I was sick. (I've heard this before)

I've been wanting to do something for the Little Red Riding Hood collab for a while, but hadn't quite found a place to fit in. Flockofword's "Lessons that Lessen Us" provides a perfect opportunity. It aslo gives me a chance to musically comment on some issues dear to my heart. Here's to freedom of expression and being. Enjoy.
You tell your son that he can fly.
Fasten on his bright red cape
and tell him he can defy
tell him that he is above

"Hey Mom, take a look!"

added synth, vox, guitar and some drum stems. hope it still works for you guys.
Nina: What the heck is that?
Marvin: Isn’t this the tape you wanted?
Nina: That’s not tape! You just strung a bunch of ducks together.
this doodle should like to dance to The Struggle by Madrond101 cause it's such an amazing piece of music so i resourced it below
love the accordian!! :)
I think I can make this better so I might redo it. It took a long time. This will be my last record for about a week. I am going on vacation with limited internet. I will try to login and look at stuff if I get a chance. I will miss you all <3
i was born a guy, with a mother who didn't want me
i had a a good father and 2 good brothers,
but i was clueless about women
So this is probably the oldest writing piece I still own-I hadn't really scanned it proper before because I never really liked the final edit. I had written either 2 pages back and front or four pages back and front and I remember my teacher told me it was too long so she edited it. Tomorrow its 17 years since the passing of Selena and I am so grateful to her legacy and what she represented (and still represents) to us little Tex-Mex loving girls. Though she didn't live long she did show us that dreams do come true although her final dream to complete an album of entirely English songs was left incomplete. Still her story although tragic is an inspirational one and I for one know that I will never forget her.
Creating cool characters is a great way to start developing stories that can evolve into short films, comic strips, or even songs.
ILLUSTRATORS: Make new characters, or remix characters that already exist on the site. Contribute these to chloe04's "Character Collab" so we can remix them even further.
WRITERS: Find characters in the "Character Collab" and write stories about them. You can put them together with other characters or find collaborations that you can integrate them into.
I really love "why so shy little knit boy?" by sojushots and "Cactus and Balloon" by LydiaSaskia. These are awesome examples of characters that have been contributed to chloe04's collaboration. Now we can begin remixing them into their own stories.
Can't wait to see more characters from all of you guys!
I had no intent to contribute to this collab but darn if you people don't inspire me. I thought I'd take the part of the villainous parents and society in this lyric based on all I resourced and more.
