This week I am going to focus on re-recs for Monster City because there are so many new records contributed. This collab is taking off! There is so much potential for us to create this world. I know it is called Monster City, but it is their world and it was inspired by a REmix I did months back of brookecuckart's monster ideas, and Monster City was the title. I believe this collab has the potential for us to create a book, films, and maybe more. Thanks to Gaby for starting the hitRECord Challenge Collab. it is a great way to ask people to work with you on projects and had generated a lot of results for this collab.
ppeppina has taken the challenge I gave her of writing a theme song for Monster City. She has done such a great job. We have great monsters and stories developing, and phtographers and illustrators are contributing albums of their work that can be used as backgrounds for REmixes and animations. We also have a lot of great REmixes here. There are a lot of records I want to include here, so I will be adding to this RE-REC album over the next day or so. Also I am on pain pills for a neck injury and won't recover for a week or so, so sorry if I am typing anything that doesn't make sense :)
Here's the Monster City Song that adh challenged me to do... hahahaa I had fun making this, don't take it too seriously :D check out the monster city collaboration it's awesome!
Have I ever told you about this magical place called the Monster... Monster City? You'll see many creatures in there, with a strange form and face it's the Monster... Monster City...
Don't be afraid they wont hurt you Though they might just eat you for food
Many, many years have now passed from that tragic day I went to Monster... Monster City If I could somehow change the past, I'd tell myself to stay away from the Monster... Monster City!
They never meant to hurt me, I'm sure But unfortunately they ate me for food!
Amber challenged me to make another Monster's remix, so I decide to make something different, I hope you all like this, especially Amber, I made the monster's family tree, with my favorite characters!!!

Being a vampire did not come naturally to Hernandez.
As a human, he was never very sure of himself. He led a rather solitary life, avoiding confrontation whenever possible.
Hernandez – The Mexican Vampire
Somewhere along the way I lost my accent, I have no idea where it went, but it has disappeared completely.
That is correct friends. ...
When Hernandez was a child, his midnight birthday parties went sadly unattended.
“All the kids are asleep by now,“ his parents used to say, when they saw his disappointed...
this is a landscape of my city Whangarei in New Zealand.....or how I like to see it. The landscape is the treasure of my city.
Patrick was a curious young boy who longed to explore his world.
Much to the chagrin of his parents, no playpen or playground ...
Frankie fancied himself a doctor of sorts,
He liked to collect animal teeth and heal worts,
But deep in the dark woods he used to live,
Frankie met a girl with a red hood holding a shiv,
"My big eyes are all the better to see you with" he said,
So the little girl shanked poor Frankie and now he's dead.
I hope you like it, ADH! ;)
Henri never really quite fit in with the rest of the monsters. While most of his classmates showed up for picture day with their meanest, scariest face, Henri could not ...
I made this from a photograph I took of the walnut dresser my dad made for me when I was a kid. It is a photo of the woodgrain on the side of the dresser, that just happened to be the side that faced my bed at night. I put something like 500 glow in the dark stars on my wall before the dresser was ever there, but when i got it the stars lit up the room at night and that combined with my imagination gave me trouble falling asleep for many nights. I obviously added effects to this as well as smoke, fire, eyeballs, and a mouth, but it really looks like this!
Please come a little closer Dear
Amber (ADH) challenged me to do a paper cut of a monster of my choice from her Monster City collab.
I chose MelonBerri's Mokupoku :)
I had SO much fun with this..
whoa. this uploaded a little larger than I intended it to be. My doodle of the day "Monster, Monster Ma'am"....
#2 pencil, charcoal pencil, fine tip sharpies, neon crayons, & chalk pastels.
I thought I would go ahead and upload the original in case someone else wants to color and clean up this guy. =D
Sylvie in a headpiece I made for a children's production of Where the Wild Things Are many many moons ago. Shame she's holding that silly blue cup or else I would think she could be cut out and placed somewhere more magical. Who knows, though - might be useful. Maybe I'll try to get another of her...
Another old 4-track demo, from around the same time 'The Devil is Out' was recorded (aka a million years ago). I mentioned this one in my 'Getting personal' post so I thought it would be fitting to share it.
I am fighting the urge to write what I think about the overall quality of this recording in fear that I shall be cyber-slapped by AnnMarije & Xanlee… :p I'll just say that I recently considered re-recording it as a PROPER sounding song , but decided against it in the end. I mean, I like it, but I'd rather focus on other (okay, BETTER) stuff. ;) ...I still dig the lyrics, though!
You should have made me a God
I'm royalty by blood
But you've made me
A society outcast
Fifty thousand burning souls
I could have saved you all
I'm a hero
I'm a Caligula wannabe
Take the feathers off my hair
I don't care if they stare
I dare them
To try and tame me
It's romantic but it's sad
Although I'm really bad
I love you all
So let's die together
Hear me out
Try not to break me down
I am young
And full of apathy
I am God and I'm EVERYWHERE
Mother Nature knows SHIT
I am a tabloid hit
They've crowned me
The Caligula wannabe
Take it, fake it
Break it down
I'm heading to your town
I love you…
CHOPSTICKSROAD MADE THIS AMAZING "Weird Community" and that's my Remix :-) / PENCIL colored /
That wasn't supposed to be blue. I had a pink one, but the Super-Queen cat that lives around here saw it on the couch and chewed on it! Blah.
I was so excited when the monster collab came up! one of the drawing phases that i want through when i was younger was ALL about monsters and creepy rag-dolls (too meany tim berton movies i guess) anyway i looked back into some of my old drawing books and i found this treasure :) I think I was 9 when i drew this.
