GO HOME, TOURISTS.
Anyway. People keep calling this "the unofficial end of summer" but I think that's bull! We still have 3 weeks of summer, enjoy them! And hell yes I am going to wear white after today. SO THERE.
Anyway, on to the wonderful gems I found on HitRECord this week.
Oh, I have such songs for you all! And I realize I'm a little behind the times on a few of these. Sometimes I discoer things by accident okay, LONG after everyone else has discovered them. But then I think, hmm, maybe someone hasn't seen/heard this yet, and maybe someone will actually see these re-recs, and maybe someone will enjoy it like I do. I suppose that's really why I do re-recs.
1. We Stand Together by TheWayTimMoves. This is such a catchy, well-played tune and I can imagine all sorts of vocals over this. You know, it reminds me of Allanis Morisette, and not just because of the harmonica either. I found this, amazingly, through DianeFT, after she REmixed one of my comedy/tragedy contributions into poetry. (Which I have also included in my re-recs because she did an amazing job and summed it up so wonderfully.)
2. Booda, by bhard. WHY ISN't EVERYONE ON HITRECORD LISTENING TO THIS AND DANCING? This makes me want to bust out my old belly dance costume and get down with my bad self. So much effing fun, this song. Maybe my favorite thing this week. You magnificent bastard! ^_^ And I love the ending.
3. Right, so I realize by the amount of hearts that most of you lot are already well aware of Alpal's beautiful Wah-Wah Wanderer. I know I'm really late on this one, but I fell in love with it. BUT, have you all heard RJ's version, with guitar and kazoo? because it's brill! Direct to iPod.
4. There Are Skeletons In Every Closet by ceelum. You know, I love this because it's true. It's dark, and it's awesome, and it's true.
Okay, so there are a few cool songs for you this week, hope you liked them.
1. I really liked BB Joe Angel by LydiaSaskia for the image REmix collab. Well, I liked tons of them, and i loved the ones that got featured, but this one was awesome, too. I love stuff with wings.
2. Hati's Grey Mare. Gorgeous photography, intense subject matter, as usual.
3. FractalDusts's Elephant with Wings. From the mistress of image REmix herself! I love the way Dusty REmixes and does these composite images. They're so clean; they never look chopped up and pieced together. And this is just adorable and weird. Just how I love my records! :D
4. Story Hour by gemeinesHaschel - Just so cute, with that storybook, fairy tale feel to it. I loe the shading and the little details, and the adorable look on the rabbit's face.
And here's something that's not a song or video or animation or poem or... It's an idea. This is a really cool idea: HitRECord post cards! MissAmerica is right: we have so many images at HitRECord, and some of them you just can't REmix but that doesn't make them any less cool. I'd love to send a HitRECord postcard, or even just hang a few up on my wall. Think of it! Prints and such. It could be so much fun.
I like to have 9 re-recs, but this week I have 10. That kind of throws me off my game, but still. Suppose I could do 12, but that might be bordering on too many. So, I will end there. With 10. Which is not divisible by 3 and that's going to bug me all week.
Hope you are all having a great weekend!
A fun instrumental song of mine that includes harmonica and acoustic guitar. I am looking for someone that would like to put their own vocals over it. DO IT!!!
There are 223,000+ RECords here on hitREcord.
Of those, more than 142,000 of them are images: drawings, illustrations, photos, remixes...
What could we do with all of those images?
I have an idea!
I was inspired by JulesKD's story "Past Imperfect" to write the lyrics for a song, and I chose the music from "We Stand Together" by TheWayTimMoves. Feel free to mix them!
Hand Drawn olde fashioned classic pen and paper. Its like 1am, and kinda rushed the photo so its abit low quality,....sorry! the wings are drawn on the photo but ill try upload them separetly, or trace some new ones xx
''Soll ich dir was vorlesen?'' is german and could mean something like ''Do you want me to read a tale to you?'' in english. It's the foxy fox and the little bunny merlin.This is the first good piece i've done for many weeks so I want to thank hitrecord because somehow you pushed my motivation and creativity :3

REC #12: Skeletons and Monsters and Clowns, Oh My!
Mother, I remember you would tuck me in and give a kiss goodnight
Father, I remember you would pray with me and teach me wrong from right
Brother, I recall that you would stay with me and tell me don’t be frightened
But sister, I recall that you would say to me, ‘cause I had to learn to fight it
“That there are skeletons in every closet, dear
And there live monsters under every bed
And in the cellar, we have hidden all our fears
We walk with endless nightmares running through our heads”
Father, I have found the door and tunnel that will lead me to the light
Mother, don’t forget that someday soon in better days we’ll reunite
Brother, I’ll remember what you said and everything will be alright
And Sister, can I stay with you and listen while you tell me one more time
And ghosts of families past, they watch us everywhere
And they are laughing when you trip over your feet
And on the rooftop devils taunt you “do you dare?”
When a killer clown resides on every street”
