I've added this REmix to both the Independence and Occupy collaborations as I think the image applies to both topics. I hope you find it somewhat inspirational! <3
Equal parts Julian Fellowes, Stephen Fry, Clive Candy and Tobias Fünke
Rather less strident than Todd's reading.
An attempt to begin a discussion about the direction of HitRECord and see some common complaints addressed. In which I am revealed to be inarticulate and easily distracted without a script. Also my cadence is wack. And my voice goes odd at times.
At about 5:15 I mean specifically a piece of text from our users. There are some wonderful poems and prose on the site that never see light of day because "reading" is "boring" or something.
Inevitably, I did not manage to cover everything I wanted to. Apologies for the roughness of recording, I lack patience as an audio editor.
And in case it isn't clear, I am nothing but grateful to HitRECord for the last 2 years I've been here. The opportunity to have work seen on such a large scale just doesn't happen normally, and I appreciate and respect the work that has gone into making that happen. It's because of this gratitude that I'm so eager to ensure that the company does not stagnate or flounder as we progress into a larger sphere of attention.
An ode to friends.
Because we would do anything for them. And even though they tell us to stay, we follow them through thick and thin.
PS: Best listened to with headphones.
PS: This RECord was undoubtedly influenced by the fact I just finished watching Third Star.
Missing Life Line
I re-recorded this song last month sometime now that my piano is in tune, but never posted it because I'm still not totally in love with the way it ended up sounding. Anyway, I would love love LOVE for this song to be remixed or even started over from scratch. I tried to pay more attention to my timing and everything this time so it will be easier for anyone that wants to add to it. If you're interested, let me know and I'll upload the stems. I really want to take this song to a whole other world, more voices, more ambient sounds, more more more! I want the "ooo" section to sound heavenly, so if you have any ideas, please share! Chords: Verses: C Am Em C Am Em C Am Em F G Oohs: C Em (a million times) and at the end it's F Em Am then another verse and end in C
You drape me in your oversized coat, drowning me in everything that’s dragging you down from the skies. As I watch you fall, you cling onto every inch of me, sucking the air out of my lung...
Enjoy and feel free to chop up as you like. Like I said before, I've uploaded another little snippet cause I felt like I'd messed up those lines the elf said in this one.
That awkward moment when you realize you can't run away from your problems
I love your video i'd love to see more videos like it for a song i have called I remember.
Thanks vedder, Noah & Rochelle for doing the VO for this. I tried to use all 3 at the same time but that is beyond my technical skills:-)
It's not perfect, but I'm proud of it anyway!
For the first time in my life
I woke up as myself.
It seems as if for far too long
I'd been living as somebody else.
Then a powerful wind of chang...
A star fell out of the sky today
In my garden it did land
I picked it up gently, and made a wish
As it lay flickering in my hand....
i want to unknow all the things i have known
i want to unsow all the seeds i have sown
i want to unfeel all the things i have felt
i want to undeal all the an...
She's here between us
But time is on our side
Her face keeps crawling in
But it's OK
She'll never stay
I will steal the stars for you
To live in taxis
It can't be so bad
To live in someone's dream
It could be nice
I'd love to live in yours
I will kill the beast for you
We are bound to be free
If we just hang on
For it is soon to be
Just you and me
Will carry on
We will be happy
Just sip our tea
And laugh until we ache
It will be you and me
Cos it has to be
Her ghost must soon be gone
And when we're drowning
Just bear in mind
The shore is getting near
We'll soon be laughing
Just laughing at ourselves
Independence: A state of mind
Independence? What that means?
I’ve always found very difficult to find the right meaning to words like: Liberty, ind...
Once Upon a Time, a vehicle swerved to avoid another.
The odd perfume of wildflowers, loam, and crushed metal was strong & unexpected. The window trailed glitt...
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!!
I directed/animated this music video with a few friends. We like to call it a low-fi, arts and crafts, stop-motion history of the world.
The song is called Thick as Thieves, by the band Kalle Mattson.
So, this is what happens when you read the entire Syd Mead Blade Runner sketchbook after a long conversation about absinthe. I was originally going to call it 'Do Art Nouveau Androids Dream of Green Dragons?' Ugh. But as always, do with it what you will. I don't know who the poor bastard sitting in the rain is, but he looks cold, sick and tired. I think he's waiting for a phone call.
I also originally tried to make something to do with the red riding hood collab. - this was going to be P.I. Duncan Wolf trying to solve the mystererious murder of Little Red at the Lumberjack Lounge. (Cross-dressing gangster The Grandma did it. He hired local hitman Big Teeth to do the job, but didn't count on the Wolf actually being able to catch the scent.) I wandered off a little.
So, yeah. I'll upload the pencils of this too, if anyone wants to do their own colour job. To anyone downloading it, you will realise that yes, I originally tried to upload this as an animated gif. Alas, I am a goof, and messed it up somehow. Hence the tinyness. If you can fix it, wonderful. If not, no worries. We live and learn.
..... or is it? Huge thanks to everyone that contributed!
