All hearts given for this week.
As always, with the dashboards being so spotty, if there's anything you really want me to see or respond to, send it here.
And forgive me if I accidentally un-RECommend somebody's RECord as I'm still getting used to the add button being down at the button.
Calm afternoon, light breeze , swaying tree brushing their leafs, the soft sound of air brushing through the grass. The air is light and sweet, laughter flows in from afar feeling me up with the emotion of peace and happiness. In the lowest times I am always reborn again.
I am just really, super excited on the release of The Tiny book of Tiny Stories..so ya..believe in Tiny Stories this Christmas...:)
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

Something I've been working on for a while but never really clicked together... wish I could make picture look cooler but don't have the right equipment for it. Well point this picture tell's a story a tiny one and I hope you guys enjoy it.
In a parallel universe, fate intervened differently in RegularJOE's quest to venture downtown to RECord the Occupy Wall Street movement in November of 2011.
Took some narrow depth of focus shots of spinny angels and bokeh and set it to jstandifird's beautiful 'music box'.
Used a lint roller on the inside of my jewelry drawer which is lined with some velvety black fabric. The roller lifted a lot of the fibers and made a neat texture.
I should really get started on my essays. I doubt I'll be able to record anything until Thursday after my last final. /sadface
Feel free to edit however you want to!
I took this picture last spring in my grandfathers garden. Like this flower blossomed into beauty I'm hoping to make new and different kinds of beauty blossom on this site.
A peculiar type of jewelry.
To be worn, on glowing feminine profiles of endearing vanity,
To be abandoned...

(sBo's) beautiful doodling HEART of HEARTS - (Kestrel) colored it the other day - and... I saw a keychain :-) / I added the word :-) and kept it square in shape, because squares are STILL the easiest to make :-p
This is an animation made from one of SFBakstad's timelapsed lily videos. Each frame was modified by a variety of hitRECorders & then mixed back into the sequence.
The video shows 4 different versions: full speed, slower, less than half speed (so you can see the individual frames more clearly) & then the full speed again for comparison.
The frames were modified by: rejjie, jelly bean, adhgraphicdesign, brookeduckart, moonbug & Duddelmaus! Thank you all for your contributions! :)
Now... where do we take this next?
this is in response to RedHeadMonsters Request to footage of hands.. i realized i had this outtake from righ to left.. i plan on filming more soon but i wanted to get this up for you
I know I'm a bit late with this but wanted to release it anyways! Based on The Bookshop tiny story

The background for this is an original piece from my collection found on my website ww.adhgraphicdesign.com :)
So here I am. A year to the day and still my head is full of criss-crosses and double-backs and all sorts of creations that would lend themselves well. I couldn't begin to speculate on the numbe...
As soon as I saw consh's "Princess" I knew I had the perfect background. The background image is one of my originals that can be found on my website www.adhgraphicdesign.com The original photo was taken by my sister Kristi Hilton while she was in London. She gave me the copywrites to her photos and I created unique pieces of art from them :)
I’ve always loved how mystical holding hands feels.
Kissing can be so passionate, and hugs are so sincere, but
this was a show like nothing before
The living dream of death.
The dead dream of bungee jumping.
Illustration-wise the art should reflect the theme o...
Wanted to play with mtbrd's Charleston Beat the moment I heard it!
Mon amour je ne te trouve pas
Mon amour ou vas tu?
Mon amour ni aux cafe
Ni dans la rue
Mon amour le ciel parisien
Mon amour la tour eiffel
Mon amour les champs elysees
Mon amour pourquoi t'es cachée
Je te cherche aux bars de la nuit
Saint Michel et Sacre Cour
Le seul son que j''ai entendu
C'est le battement de mon cour perdu
For the emotions collab.
I don't know about you, but I can be a little impatient sometimes. I occasionally turn into a GRR monster while waiting for a video to encode, or an important email/phone call, or a train to pass, etc. So I made this vid in honor of those of us who are still trying to master the zen of patience.
SINGLE page contribution to videotroph's: The hitRECord Manifesto collaboration...
* (5x7) High Resolution... [I am struggling to upload anything larger :) I will try again]...
* Doodle/scribble gentleman's 'body' by tori (THANK YOU so much t. x)
EDIT *** PLEASE NOTE: this version contains typos. Fixing this - and I will upload again ***
I saw this beautiful performance of themetafictionist and I really liked because I'm just like her when I have to wait for something. So, I added this audio of a clock ticking because I think it causes a greater impatience when it is seen, transmitting the emotion to who's watching.
I loved mirtle's drawing so much, I couldn't resist.. the waves and belcath's background were great as well. This was fun to work with. :)
The critic stared into the blank white abyss,
Wondering if there was something he had missed,
Thinking, "I'll be the first person to get this",
But little did he know that the painting was gone,
Taken down because it has needed to be worked on.
great news! they've made their safe journey across the skies :D and now they're getting all dressed with bows for their new families :]
So, we're in the middle of finals week at CCS and I just needed a break! No homework, just a one-hour personal piece to focus on, get some REAL traditional creativity.
Unlike their more famous friends Jack and Jill, Jake and Jillian made it up and down the hill without incident.
I saw Molly's question about Jack and Jill and was ...
I really loved both the 'Yes, We're Sinking' song by eaneikciv and the image it inspired by chopsticksroad so have remixed them into this little animation. <3
"Sometimes kisses Can be hits or misses And sometimes hugs Are an armful of shrugs But to me holding hands Is just simply grand." By : Day Glo
The first RECord I uploaded to this site was a webcam picture. I took it on December 8th, 2010. I didn’t even have my iPod touch yet, let alone my camera.
I love how these versions of Tiny Stories books show the evolution of hitRECord in this last year.
The first being a simple collection printed on paper. (August 2010)
The second being a bound edition we published ourselves. (December 2010)
And the third being a bound edition published by a renown publishing company. (December 2011)
All that growth in just over a year! :D
FINALS ARE FINISHED! I'm exhausted. It was a terrible week, too.
HERE'S A NEW REC IN CELEBRATION TO THE COMMENCEMENT OF WINTER BREAK!
NEEDS A STORY?
hmm...Should have worked more on the blending of the shades. oh well. Something to improve!!
Inspired by the song "Delicate" by Damien Rice
Dictionary paper, indian ink, tempra paint, paper, clear plaster, chai and coffee
She is suppose to be enraptured like silent film which represents the unspokeness of who she is and how she feels.
I used certain dictionary pages and created small designs around the words that describes her.
The lighing in the picture doesn't do the painting justice but hopefully it will come alive in your discoveries.
Yesterday I received a call that my sister in law was in the ICU, when I first heard the voicemail I thought the caller said my 3 year old was in the ICU. I almost gave myself a heartattack in the middle of Sam's Wholesale. I thought I'd record what it would be like to have actually received a call about my daughter. This is a first Record for me so be gentle ;p
this is another version of Joe reading Morgan M. Morgansen's Date With Destiny at the Fall Formal 2011 as a tintype, only this one is even more worse for wear.

I thought of this idea when I shot the "waiting..." footage last night. Going through LizSmall's emotions collab inspired me to pull some of the footage from contributions there into making a commercial for the new Tiny Book of Tiny Stories, Volume 1. The pprescott released her gorgeous footage and I decided to give it a rough edit tonight.
There are a few things I'd like to work on:
1. The voice over. I wrote this out really quickly, and I'm not 100% pleased with it. If someone could remix it, I'd love to hear their ideas. I'd like to keep the VO focused on emotions though, as that's the footage I want to use. The footage I select is tied very carefully to the VO, so that's something to keep in mind:
Are you worried about what to get your friends and family this holiday season? Bored by the same old presents every year? Frustrated by large crowds and long lines? Well put down that book and check this out! The Tiny Book of Tiny Stories Volume One is here! Filled with page after page of impeccably illustrated, beautifully brief tales of happiness, sorrow and everything in between, the Tiny Book of Tiny Stories is sure to put a smile on anyone’s face. Available online or in stores at any of these fine retailers, you can get yours today and turn that holiday drear into holiday cheer!
2. More shots of the Tiny Book of Tiny Stories, Volume 1, in much the same way as pprescott has provided. I think it would also be great to get footage of people holding the TBOTS and being really happy about it.
3. More emotions, especially as they relate to the emotions in the VO. I'd like a variety of takes on them, but I'm leaning more toward "big" because I want to keep this sort of lighthearted and fun.
4. A good background music. Suggestions are welcomed.
So yeah, definitely open to any feedback/advice/help you're willing to give!
This is my first gift to all of you this Xmas, I hope you like it, the other one that I am doing is going to be ready around December 20, Merry Xmas guys! Love ya all!
I'm going to get the kidlings to record it in Korean next week.
You hear me say, "Shija" at the beginning of the video, it roughly translates to "start now" or "go now". Sort of the Korean equivalent of "on three".
When you were young
They said it would get better
A lifting, lightening, loosening
And a dropping off of fetters
Now you're so ...
"Sean" is the first track on the album As the Head Turns (Amazon, CD Baby). HitRECord is the first place I have chosen to release the track for free. I may even post stems soon...
Please, please, please let me know what you guys think! And remember that half of the proceeds from the album and its songs go to the NAEH (National Alliance to End Homelessness). Thanks!
A remix of two seriously awesome RECords...!
This came out a bit Bob Dylan ^_^
*Headphones are probably better*
I'm obsessed with this song. Incredible. I think it would be really cool to hear someone else's voice sing this part! (Personally, I don't think I have the voice for this. I hear it different in my head!) (:
I've also uploaded a ZIP file with the vocals on their own, which you can find in results.

I sang along with the chorus, and also recorded a new verse! Lyrics below:
Well shake your feet out, press repeat
We're recording and sounding sweet
Bring yourself and lend a hand
Lend your voice to the family band
A whistle here, a shoopshoop there
Finding music everywhere
Everyone can play a part
Here we go again by heart
