Vedder challenged me to remix one of Emma's great photo's, don't know why I went to the dark side:).
Played around with eaneikciv's "the [uni]verse is us" stems and integrated HashbrownStephens' beat from "What's a matta you?" into a quasi hip-hop mix.
"take your absolute favorite image and write a short story / poem / piece of prose to accompany it?" : Karenayle.
So many wonderful images...but this one has remained a constant favourite
Rochelle's challenge: Click on the random RECord button. Find three text RECord and five image RECords. It must be the first 3 texts and first five images you see. Now remix all the images together. Then create a statement using pieces of the three text records that work with the remix.
I kinda cheated though on the text records...cause seriously no text records would come up and I clicked on the random button forever! That's why I made up my own text: sew sew sew a boat...haha...
Hope you like it Rochelle!
The kids, the moon and the Baby Stars
The moon is the guardian of the golden key,
That belong to the cage where the baby stars sleep,
The kids stole the cage; they try to reach the moon,
So they can steal the key, to play with them all the afternoon.
But the kids have to understand,
To the wise and old moon,
They have to leave the stars alone,
Until they shine on their own.
The baby stars can’t survive alone,
The moon have to take care of them,
But the kids can be sure, that one of these days,
That they are going to see them shine,
In the sky out of their cage.
I am sorry, I am not very good writing, but yesterday I feel inspired by this remix and I started to write, so, I hope you all like this anyway!!!
Challenge Complete! i was challenged to make a song out of the poem Galactic Carpet Ride by Vedder. Which was written to the original guitar by Taylor Johnson. hope you enjoy!
A story from the wonderful and astounding mind of my five year old sister, Aoife. As told by her.
So I made this over the weekend... These girls make me laugh!
It would be way cool if you downloaded it and watched in high quality.
Upon the barren hill of all that remained,
A solemn tree with gear swing swayed.
The cartographer, lost on his own map, strained
For his eyes saw the place he once played
Many years ago before his world fell apart,
Many years ago before his now broken heart.
I absolutley LOVE this image by JustinMezzell. It's pure brilliance. I hope you enjoy my tiny story for it, Sinnamin!! =)
Version 2 of the Automator Collage. Main difference here is the placement of hook vocals. Unmixed mp3 reference track.
Here we go, another war like before this all dissolved//into a past of bad blood and back-talk, it's all wrong like//you know how much it takes to restrain and remain calm?//not take it to her face, rearrange it and smack it off?//yo chill man, gotta destroy it and then rebuild//but her bushy hair "i don't care" attitude is her shield//yo and sadly, it gotta be tragedy just to feel//i can't sleep like insomnia eats me with self-guilt//for anything contagious, dead but i'm still ill//like everything she hated me for and she can't heal//like enemies, we'll never be mended, endless, a circle wheel//back tot the beginning, relive it, learn it, rehearse the drill//act like we love it, it's something that doesn't hurt until//something else found a malfunction and isn't workin well//every conversation we fake it so we can make it real//maybe if we work it, it's worth it but it's too late to tell...
Everything that ever was never was anyway//every situation never remembered and it's a shame//that when times are hard, we pull apart harder, it's all the same//but we all remain constant yet we all change...
Yea we all change...All remains constant yet we all change...And I'm still afraid because what we were before is just not the same today...

When I heard missamerica's beautiful "Lullaby" and then found this adorable tiny story "Starry Song" by Rebelle, I thought they were made for each other, so I had to put them together... My voice doesn't really sound so great in these kind of songs, so if anyone would like to sing this, which would be awesome, let me know and I'll upload the remix with just the lullaby and the guitar!
Under the twilight I danced till dawn
as the stars twinkled to me their starry song.
Mister Moon winked as he sang along,
"Twinkly-dink, twink, twink, tra la."
Under the twilight I danced till dawn
as the stars twinkled to me their starry song.
So, Sinnamin challenged me to make an illustration of one of my favorite tiny stories, so I choose Airplane by dancingdirtroads, and I made an illustration/remix for this! I hope you all like this especially Sin!!! :)
Airplane - tiny story:
The little airplane always dreamed of flying through space. At night, she would flash her lights bright and pretend to be a shooting star.
I’ve got a tiny problem
And it starts with Y O U
I’m trying to ignore it
I’m letting others through
It’s been something of a bother
For at least month or two
I just don’t want to admit
That I L O V E you.
Tibbs challenged me to take one of her remixes and try to improve it by cleaning it up a bit. I chose here Shadow Being REmix "Where Am I?"
megan_carnes challenged me to make a Jelly Babies "video storyboard" like I did for a new hevn about a year ago. I happily accepted:)
A few pieces don't exactly fit with the plot (i.e. the character sketches of the conquerors are put in with the text about conquering, I wasn't sure where to put the protesting RECords so they're at the end, etc.) but I think I got most of it. I really tried to use most of the REsources in the collab, but I know I missed some, especially the character designs and jellyland designs since I wasn't sure exactly where to fit them all in.
I think the best things to take out of this is where we have "gaps" so people can contribute more REsources for those and also where we have lots of great images already so people can start animating.
Also, please let me know if I accidently missed REsourcing your RECord in here.
It was a slow night until a woman came and sat down at the bar. She pulled out a gun and held it steady at the man behind the counter.
"I'm looking for Bobby McGee," she said, staring down the barrel with her finger tight on the trigger.
Whenever I think of how it once was,
For every heart that breaks or becomes complete, I listen…trying to understand.
For every soul lost or found, I empathize…understanding completely.
When she broke free from her binding chains,
Tania's spirit was finally free to rise again.
She raised her arms high up into the air,
Feeling her independence rush through her hair,
Her body bent towards the magnetic pull to survive,
For she knew from this moment on she was truly alive.
Challenge met, Kouralilly! I do love this image very much...it has a life of its own, you are right! =)
ok this was not the direction i was planning on going with this when i downloaded it...but sometimes an image has a mind of its own as far as what it wants to say :)
and it is going in the re: independence collab!
tania c - this is an a-m-a-z-i-n-g shot!!
As their time apart stretched from days to years,
Goose girl could not help the flow of her tears,
For when she drank her wine she tried to let go
Of her former love she always dreamed of: her shadow.
For Gaby's challenge! I hope you enjoy it Gaby! =)
I always wonder if girls look at me and think the way I do towards them. Not done but most likely I wont finish it. So might as well just put it up.
As requested, here is my interpretation of Gaby's Bad Advice Record: "When life gives you lemons, just wait for some oranges, apples and pineapples and make some delicious fruit juice." ....somehow this took a weird, dark turn when I went to illustrate it. Graphite and pencil crayons on paper.
I am working in some possible intros for some of the videos for my shadows project, this is just a version, but I am making another animation right now, I have to say thanks to karengayle for this fantastic animation of my HR shadows logo! :)
So I decided to revisit this song and take a few things out and rerecord the beginning. Check it out.
I put together this title card conceopt after being inspired by Proi's "A Modest Proposal (Handwritten)" record. Just wanted to remix her concept and see if others could take this idea further.
This is an animation of a heart beating five times. The first and last frames are identical making it perfect for looping. This could be easily remixed into an animation where the heartrate varies, either speeding up or slowing down.

I was filming the kids playing outside today for our family video memory scrapbook thingy, & Millie wanted to have a tea party by her new flower garden, so I figured I might as well use some of the footage here too! And I just couldn't resist putting a cheesy iMovie video effect on it, sorry :)
i love everything mirtle draws, but "tea party" has always been one of my favorites. so much that i had to go and sew a pennant banner to hang in my daughter's room last year! we relocated it for today's tea party :)
Raw footage coming soon for anyone to play around with that actually knows what they're doing when it comes to editing!
Third draft with the soundboard audio. I'll probably play around with this a bit more, but feel free to have at it. :)
This is my finished challenge for Christopher. Christopher, if it's not to your liking I will write something else! Be honest! I didn't have this in mind when I started writing but it ended up t...

This is my version of Turn Over The Leaves, I added some new elements, play a little bit with the colors and also, I added as a cover for the book, the book of tiny stories, but inside I decide to add some of our favorite characters at HR! Hope you all like this!!!
hi everyone! :)
i'm so honoured & excited to be a part of the team of resident curators for the site, as a video & text curator. i'm champing at the bit to support & encourage the incredibly talented writers, video-makers & remixers on hitRECord.
here's a little video i put together to introduce myself & tell you a bit about what i'm planning to do.
A video I produced for the announcement of the Resident Curators. Yes, my tongue is blue, I nearly OD'd on Jolly Ranchers.
A colorful and cartoon-ish strawberry. Large PNG / transparent background. Kinda silly, but I think it's cute... if strawberries can be cute?
The current favourites, LRRH, shadows and jelly babies...where else:)
Here is the song for which I am gathering moony things : )
She Loved The Moon.
It Seemed To Love Her Too.
Oh to lie under the skylight,
Turn to Blue
Under that full bright face
STEMS Can Be Found HERE .....
version with no lead vocal here....
My first single off of my debut lo-fi EP, "Love Language".
More music: http://bit.ly/LoveLanguageEP
papercut forest i made for the little red riding hood collab. see resources for video.
update: i'm thinking of doing some similar (but multilayered) backlit scenes for the shadow collab's umbra.
thought i'd make a video to show what my dashboard looks like right now... it's never been quite this bad before!
oh, and it looks exactly the same on the beta site.
Not really sure what this is, but it would be cool if people could add more instruments!
PS: Apologies for the big empty gap of nothing at the end, don't quite know how that happened
I would dance with the sea
If I could only keep breathing
And dance with the devil if he'd take
All my fears
Dance with the wolves if they'd stop
Me from howling
To a moon that no longer hears
Stars, rain down your words upon me
And though I curse you with blood and fist
Do not deny me your heavens
I just love this fantastic texture resource: Circles Texture that rejjie uploaded, and since the first time I saw this, this was the idea that came to my mind,I just choose my favorite collaborations at HR, I hope you all like this! :)
I love soju's work, well, I think that we all love his fantastic work and he made this beautiful drawing Bump in the night, so I made this remix with a picture that I took in a haunted house in chile named: La Quinta vergara!!! I hope you all like this! :)
Edgar was, without question, a rambunctious sort

Lacking creativity I turned to one of the most creative persons on hitrecord metaphorest for inspiration. If not for Meta I'm not sure i would have stuck around here the second go round. Thanks for all the hearts Meta and I dont think you ever saw the holiday poem i wrote for you so i added it to the resources.
I was born with two arms,
My little sister (she's 14) and I were walking the dog and had this conversation. She is the weight that keeps the balloon of my imagination from flying too far away from the earth.
Visual for Wirrow's indedcpndnce (wow that is hard to type!) audio. This is the first thing that came into my head. Hopefully it's not overly creepy, but I think it can be interpreted a number of ways.
Revised animation for MMM as seen in RECollection Volume 1. TanjaTHEAwesome and I made this!
"You think you're sooo great with your cute little wings and your cute little beak, and you're tiny little feet."
"Chirp, chirp, chirp, chirp."
"....I hate you."
Hell is clicking on your activity page and not only not seeing any new hearts but seeing ten listings of the last heart you got and not being able to see anything else on the activity page. &nbs...
When the day is long I will sing these songs /// my voice is weak and off key but that don't mean that much to me /// I might dream those dreams i will never know it seems /// i lost the passion and the drive that used to keep me up at night
falling downward is the easy part /// The ground is there I'm praying that it's strong enough to break my fall
we go through time like an old fashioned rhyme /// it's over in a little bit and then you just get sick of it /// I don't want to grow so bitter when I'm old /// I want to change the way I feel maybe there's hope for me still
but falling downward is the easy part /// The ground is there I'm praying that it's strong enought to break my fall
her voice took me by surprise.
“not much” i replied, my gaze still fixed on the horizon.
“nice sunset” she com...
As I write, I am intruding on Grandmother’s vegetable garden. A cabbage is my seat, my lap a desk. I fled the house in a frenzy, desperate for solitude. I’m trying to ignore the bugs...
Was distracted by a fly while I was trying to work and ended up writing this:
The Nymphs of Beelzebub
Lie on the ceiling
Gaby's challenge," take your favorite shadow character, or your favorite shadow remix and turn it into a glass paint "
I chose a part of azur_du_ciel's "if the noon shadow has wanted to see a dawn.."
Did a few magic tricks to make the mix sound fuller ;) also I forgot to put reverb on the horns in v3 because I suck, so I fixed that.
Whaddya guys think of this one? I know Joe said he wanted more instruments but I was able to make it sound bigger without them sooo maybe that's not necessary? IDK. You tell me!
I'm waiting on my horn & clarinet players to make hitRECord accounts so I can properly resource them >.<
Violin I: megancarnes, poodlegoose, raquelpspinto
Violin II: Dianna Petyk (recorded by lidan), megancarnes, poodlegoose
Viola: kittypimms, poodlegoose
Horns: Laura Grenlin and ruthiebisek (recorded by megancarnes)

Slipping into this love has been so easy.
Effortless and carefree,
This heart that used to beat with regularity,
