You know how you see all those character posters/banners at cinemas promoting upcoming movies? Here is my take on a MMM2 version of those, inspired by the poster of "Horrible Bosses" ...and I just want an excuse to slap those fantastic words from the MMM universe onto the drawings
The drawings were actually done for another purpose, but one day when I was walking home I saw a double decker bus with the "Horrible Bosses" banner on it and I just thought it would be fun to have something similar for the MMM flims~
I loved this peaceful little track by Joooshua that I came across. My additions were the vocals and some weird tapping, drumming, pulse stuff too. It's a short one.
Done with one red sharpie and a security envelope, for the irony, and because I wanted the envelope to feel like it was made from what was lying around. I wanted it to feel fairly low quality, jumbled and on the line of creepy-juvenile.
A while ago, I was inspired by themetafictionist's 'Dissection' picture which I did a vague doodle for and then promptly forgot about. More recently, I recommended 'I Wear My Scars' by monkeychow which had me digging up the doodle and completing it. I like the idea that everyone could do a drawing like this sharing their identifying marks and telling stories to do with them. Kind of like Jaws, only I don't live near shark infested waters so mine are of more tame stories.
Remixing for resources, hope you all can use it.
Added some vocals behind this awesome track. Don't know whether the wolf howls are too much? ^__^
Run along little wolf boy, they're coming after you
Shed your little lambskin boy, there's a big bad wolf in you
I've been working on my first animated shortfilm and I made this song for the last scene. The film is about bad dreams and stuff like that. Actually one of my pictures inspired the story. (Bad Dreams) There's a lot of work to do on the film, but I just wanted to share this here. Hope you like it! :)
I used to think the world was safe
I’d dance outside with the sun on my face
I used to believe that people were good
I would befriend as many of them as I could
I used to be trusting of what life would bring
Convinced I could dream of and have anything
I used to hold my future with steady hands
I proceeded enthusiastically with all my life’s plans
I used to be able to have so much hope
Whatever would happen, I would be able to cope.
Then suddenly the world outside became unsafe
I no longer go out, nor feel the sun on my face
I know now how naïve I was to trust everyone
Because of the reprehensible actions of one
My trembling hands clutch pills that help me cope
I hide in bed, the oblivion of sleep my only hope
The pills keep the demons from consuming me
And the monsters of memory will leave me be.
Rare moments of lucidity in my drug induced haze
Force me to remember the safe, happier days
Then the fear of what waits for me on the outside
Penetrates the numb walls behind which I hide
I desperately reach for my prescription defense
And pretend the world is not filled with violence.
Here is an updated version of the Cinematic Zombie. I didn't like how the rain looked so I pushed it behind the foreground trees (as well as sped the trees up), I think it looks much better now.
For anyone who has never been....
I normally sit in my backyard (countrygirl) and watch the sunset, nope I'm not a hopeless romantic...I just love visuals.
The colours the sky turns in the evening is crazy, my crappy camera doesn't even capture the full extent.
I'll never regret growing up in the middle of nowhere for the sake of the colours and stars I see in pure silence....its the joy being somewhere not overshadowed by light pollution.
Come see it for yourself sometime and if not....I'll just keep taking pictures :)

I want a cerebral soul mate
A brain I could carry about in a jar
We would converse, telepathically of course,
About our philosophies on life and the state of ...
a not-so-tiny tune for wirrow.
thanks to megan's beautiful piano additions and rob's absolutely spot-on mixing, this song has finally come to life after about a month of hard work. this is by far the hardest i've ever worked on a song, and i hope you all enjoy it.
i truly love this community, and i love the friends i have made from it. this song encapsulates how i feel about life, hitRECord, just...everything.
so anyway - thanks, everybody.
A little melody I whipped up the other night for the shadow beings collab. I don't actually think this is a good song at all. But just an example of a possible melody that I could expand on in hopefully much better ways. Maybe to be used as a shadow finally sees the sun?
This last week I've been away
so don't know really what to say
other than here are a few from today...
Elspeth with her starry, woeful word...
Record #9: New Stuff, finally!
So I wake up with a thought in my head
And I remember everything that I said last night
Why we fought I couldn't say that I know
All I know is that I told you to go
I said, baby, maybe, we aren't meant to be
When all we, seem to, do is disagree
And baby, maybe, it's time for you to leave
When we've been falling apart for quite a while now
So you packed your bags and called for a cab
Yea we were mad, but you just looked a little sad last night
What you thought of me, I couldn't care less
When all these years you would just leave me to guess
Well you shut the door and walked right back inside
You said 5, 10 or 20 years
I don't care, I’d rather stand here and fight
And 5, 10 or 20 more
I don't care, I'm not walking out that door tonight
'Cause when I said I do it wasn't just for a while now
And no one said that we could last on just smiling
So, baby, oh maybe, we could try once more
Remind me, I'll remind you what we both once fell for
You see, 'cause what we've got, we've got to work to keep it real
'Cause what we have is more than what we feel
It has been so long since I have RECorded anything, here. It felt as though the trade winds driving my creative ship lost the pressure gradient that drove them, sometime last spring. I am left t...
i took some liberties with the structure of this one... hope you like! :D
I love all the drawings that cat-cat made of the MM2 characters, so I decide to do something with them and this is the result, I hope you like it guys, specially you cat cat :o)
Played on my accordion. This is what I do when I can't sleep :)

From the decorations, you can tell it’s Thanksgiving as JOHNNY and SARAH enter with their respective spouses, JANE and MICHAEL, in tow. No one seems very excit...
Me singing along with the lovely 'Arkansas' by TheWayTimMoves <3
I took this photo of the WTC when I was 16 years old. It was 1995 and I was on a trip with my high school marching band. Six years later as we all know these buildings along with lots of lives were distroyed by a terrorist attack. This is my visual memorial to the lives lost and to life as we know it drastically changing.
This is my first cut of the video for the Prize. Ray's footage is really really good but there definitely needs to be more. Ahem uhhhh Regular Joe needs to record his part (calling you out bro) and also there could even be more too. Any suggestions will help as far as what else should be done to the video or should be done differently. So please watch and enjoy and leave me some feedback.
so cam and i were just chilling at my apartment when the postman showed up. we joked that maybe he had the recollection. then he actually did!
Sometimes you just gotta sniff a new book when you get it. Love that smell. Anyway this is me going crazy when I first got the book. It's so rad.
There's a really good "that's what she said" moment in here. Let's see if you can spot it.
It finally encoded!! :D
I think "Little Children" was one of the first audio records I downloaded when I joined HitRECord and I always wanted to use it for something but never found anything fitting enough. This record started out a little darker but all of a sudden it turned into something more hopeful. Which is absolutely not a bad thing :D
Hope you like <3
finally got this done... eh heh... anybody want to write a little story for this? :<
p.s - can you see the creature created by the steam?
:D did you know you can wear your RECollection cover art as a crown? #themoreyouknow #butwaittheresmore
There was a time when I had a single, clear memory of you I remember the sweetness and the sorrow of that memory But I don’t remember the memory itself The idea of that memory has been whi...
I've never been one for walking
I prefer feeling as though the world is passing me by
As though I am standing still
In case I miss something
This came out a little bit too PSA-ish.
Still... Hopefully I can make more!
First (and probably last) attempt. I'm not convinced by the clouds on the Amoeba logo... and the result is very... "cold", well, I don't know. Formal? I wish I could do more, but I'm very busy doing looots of funny architectue stuff (which are not funny at all). Just wanted to give it a try.
This is my visual design concept for the amoeba event. My idea was based on how to integrate amoeba logo and existing RECollection artwork seamlessly in a fun indie way. I wanted to include many more characters but the deadline is too short..Hope you all like it..
Joe: you have to give us longer duration for the next project's deadline! I was working like a mad lady on speed for this project. AMEN to record recycling!
I was spinning yarn with some wool in shades of blue which reminded me of the cover of recollection, and remembering thimbles' amazing felted jewelry, I was inspired to go buy some needlefelting needles and see what I could do...
And I am hoping that finishing it will help persuade the canada post dieties to speed the delivery of my copy of recollection: )
v1 Made by lots of hitrecorders for the awesome community here!
Will add the resources once this has uploaded!
A natural-born dreamer, the little girl walked a tightrope between what was and what could (never) be.
Until one day, she lost her balance.
Went into my head, came out of my hands.
- fav tiny story :D
Thought I'd play with this since it didn't get used for the vinyl. It's clearly not finished as-is. Anyone wanna remix it further? Low-fi, baby! Xerox-friendly. Groovy.
During my daily web browsing, I found comments
EDIT: There are a lot of awesome REmixes that take this song to a whole other level, go check them out!
I loved wirrow's "things" tiny story and illustration, so I used it to write another tiny tune. I would love love LOVE to have this remixed, harmonies, instruments (especially where the vocals have just ended) oohs and ahhs, background noises, whatever you feel like doing. If anyone's interested, I could try to get a better recording without so much background noise. And stems. Just lemme know :)
CHORDS are G and B Minor
A reading of Fractaldust's wonderful Cosmic Significance set to Johnny Clyde's Snow Song - which fit like a cosmic glove! Please someone make a video for this - Dusty has a great script and everything! (See resources)
EX3 Raw Footage TIFF -- "Hit Record At The Movies" September 12th, 2011.
I don't know why, but my other version uploaded with different levels of colour to how I intended. Anyway, this is a low-res version of how I intended it to be.
An attempt at a voiceover for fractaldust's written piece 'Cosmic Significance'
I've had this idea of doing a second reading for some time now, but I hadn't done it because I didn't have a recording device. I bought a new mobile phone last week and in celebration of being able to record again, I did a bunch of voice-overs. I'd done this one, but decided to wait until today to release it. Because today is my second anniversary as a hitRECorder, and it's a way to say thank you all for everything that's happened in all that time.
Granted, it's not as emotional as the original one, but if you think about it you'll see how much changes in two years, including my voice. So I guess it's like an evolution.
I've been trying to come up with something clever to say about how thankful I am that this video is still being played at the latest shows, but I can't. I remember Joe had reblogged a quote (in his tumblr) about not being able to describe or word a particular feeling because it's such a huge thing, and I think it's that. It may be worse because I am fluent in two languages and neither have enough words -or the right one, for that matter- for me to say how happy it makes me to know that people are still watching it. It's strange, yes, but it's more than that. It also makes me think Joe's insane. Then again, to have come up with such a thing like hitRECord and to have brought it thus far, he has to be. It's the only way to see the sense of it.
I love you all, I thank you all, and I hope I can meet you all one day.
You are beautiful.
If you ever feel like you're down on your luck or something, listen to this song and hopefully it will give you a little boost.
Took Cacheth's beautiful "Circuitous Beats" video and combined it with videotroph's "circulation" text. As cacheth's piece is quite short I played on the idea of repitition, and where videotroph used symbols in the text, I tried to pair the words in the reading with appropriate visuals!
PS: don't know whether the heartbeat is maybe too much?
