LydiaSaskia's contribution to the Tragedy / Comedy collab was too good not to remix!!
Hope you like! :D
I thought others might also find Megsy's amazing drawing - or this REmix - inspirational for writing a story based on it. (A tiny story, short story, script, poem, song, etc.) Any ideas?
ManWithHat sticks out his tongue, i holler at Kavonne and dre to the kay waves! were you one of the people in line???
hoookay so this is my FAVOURITE thing I've come across yet on this brilliant site & you have no clue how elated I was when I found out they were going to play it at the Seattle show! And then to top it all off Joseph did a live acting it out type of dealio! AWESOME. so awesome. love love loveeeee.
August 23, 2011. The Neptune Theater - Seattle, WA
Sadly, I temporarily had the improper white balance set on my camera...think of the blueish color as a special effect... ;)
My name is Juanma. I'm a jazz musician from Venezuela.
This a tune I wrote and recorded with some friends.
If anyone likes it, i would love if you could use it in an animation, or write a story or anything really that you think would be good.
I found this little guy chilling on the left bank, and I'm seirously wondering how he got there. So cute, but such a long way from home!
1. Goodbye Neptune (abilharz)
2. stephanie rocks the house (via)
3. when we were invisible - wirrow (g5atop)
4. Big Bad Wolfblood (MadisenMusic)
5. Downtown 81 (Kenneth Masters)
6. Stop-motion new hitRECord logo (yes-you-am)
7. contrast (RachRECords)
And right as his mangy, old wolf-mother died,
he took out his knife and he skinned her alive.
Now that little boy-wolf, with his old cloak so red,
wears his wolf-mothers pelt atop his blonde head.
All right so this is my first Re-REC video, so ignore my lame editing skills. I realized there was like over a minutes worth of me staring at the webcam looking confused, and I thought it would be funny to share. So I hope you enjoy!! :D
I realized I said star boy, but that is not the title of the image it is called hevn & stars. sorry! woops! :D

I'm back. Sorry it's been awhile. Enjoy. :)
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!
The RECnanigans that took place before and after the SF show were some of the best times I've had in a long time. This really goes back to why I love hitRECord so much-because of the amazing people in this community. Love you guys.
I'll be replacing the low-res clips from filmpunk when the high res footage is up. :)
Also, if I forgot to resource something, don't hesitate to let me know.
Taken in Seattle. Sorry for the poor camera angles!

This story, in my mind, is an animation, but since I don't have the first clue how to do animation, I attempted to capture something of the story this way. Maybe someone ore talented than me can run with it. The story behind the drawings (as opposed to the story in the drawings) is this:
In another world, my dad, instead of being a civil servant all his life, would have been a film maker. So, he came on part of my Adventure with me this summer and at one point I showed him this tiny music box that a friend had given me as a good-luck charm. It's just a cylinder and tines with a little crank, rather than an actual music box as in the picture. Anyway, I'm rummaging around my hotel room, repacking or unpacking or something, and I realize that I've been hearing the song--"You Are My Sunshine"--playing for a long time. I stop what I'm doing and look at my dad, who is sitting on the edge of the bed with this tiny music box on his hand, raptly turning the little crank and with that look on his face that he gets when he's winding up to tell a story. He catches me watching him and says: "There's this old trapper's cabin in the deep woods, half-buried in snow, and you can hear in the clear night the sound of a music box. Inside is a huge, hairy trapper sitting in the firelight carefully turning the tiny crank and listening to the music. Then we fade to a flashback of him as a young man, a Doughboy, in Paris, and the rest of the story is about his adventures and how he came to be all alone in this cabin in the woods." Of all the great moments on my Adventure, this one was among the most meaningful to me, because that's my dad, right there, a music box in his hand and a whole film in his mind's eye.
As soon as this releases, I'll get you all resourced, Lovelies :] <3
I had some major computer issues this week and my editing software actually completely crapped out on me so I had to use a different program. Because of that I couldn't edit in the video clips that I had planned to for 2 of the records here (sorry!). Also there are a couple sound issues...so sorry for the bad quality and hiccups!
RECnanigans Collaboration: hitrecord.org/records/485258
*I'm adding this to the re: childhood collab after some reflection, because it details a dark experience I had as a child--one which continued in various forms for years--and which shaped me as an adult. It veers into adulthood toward the middle, but I still thought it relevant because things like this do happen to children. Childhood isn't all games and ice cream and innocence. But, I did try to keep it lighthearted. ^_^
ANYway. :) Maybe this is a story about karma, or schadenfreude, or maybe it's about learning to not give a goddamn? Either way, you can watch me tell the story about the time I got stabbed repeatedly with a hypodermic insulin needle, how I (mostly) got over it, what became of the stabber, and watch me walk into a tree.
EDIT TO ADD:
Well, this record inspired me to do a little digging, and I ended up finding Mr. Stabby's Facebook page.
I don’t know how I feel finding out that he is a sad, angry, lonely, tragic man, plucking around on earth aimlessly and trying to dig up something he knows he can never have. He’s pissed off at women because he can’t “keep one.” He hasn’t ever known love. He’s decided to “become a bastard” so that maybe women will love him.
Dick, YOU STABBED A LITTLE GIRL. Perhaps you’re already a bastard. Maybe that’s the problem?
But it’s both tragic AND comic to read his status updates. He just got out of jail, yet again. He still calls himself “the Blind Man” too. Poor, miserable, sad creature. I think I forgive him.

Voilà mes chéris.....Where should I start?....Well, first, thank you all so much for all the birthday wishes. Each one is a precious gift for me. But this song is particular. The truth is that my family forgot today was my birthday. I'm not lying, unfortunately. I thought they were acting but no, they forgot. Now you understand the title of this song. It hurted me but hey, I've seen worse and the good thing is that I came up with a new song. You don't choose your family but they're your family, right? Don't worry, We're going to celebrate it tommorow. A big FUCKING PARTY !!!!!!!! Have a glass for me, not orange juice NO!!!! Get the booze!!!!! ^_^
Again by heart <3
This is a piano four hands duet... performed by myself and myself :P hope you enjoy. The contrast between ugly chords and pretty chords is supposed to represent fear and hope. Obviously the song ends with hope.
By the way, this song is centered around one unchanging line (the right hand of the second player... which is the first line you hear). Just in case you were interested.
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!
Or Doll-y-wood...Just experimenting with stop motion! Hopefully this is useful for something!
My video for RegularJoe's "Nothing Big"
I'll switch out the audio with that of the audio board mix when it becomes available.
Public domain resources:
Niagara Falls (1941)
If you hadn't noticed, Spaceship (Mr. Spaceship? I dunno) laid down some awesome vocals on my "Synth-o-rama" instrumental track. He was kind enough to get me the dry vocals so I could dump them into my original session and work out a new mix. Here is said new mix. I'm very much into this vocal part...It's perfect and I couldn't have thought of it myself.
I plan on re-recording this song, as the original demo is...well, a demo, which is fairly self-evident. But I added a string quartet-type sound toward the end that I hope to expand upon in the final version.
Let me know what you think, or what needs work, or if you'd like to put this over your fireplace. ^_^
I knew I wanted to do a RE-REC for my 1 month mark with hitRECord. Ideally I wanted a video RE-REC but I couldn't find the time this week. Next time, maybe! I won't wait another month to RE-...
I know the song is "Come on Eileen" but being that its been the theme to this hurricane weekend...I couldn't resist.
I love buttercup's beautiful photo "as you wish", of her grandparents sharing a dance at their wedding. I knew I wanted to REmix vintage REmix collab. When I saw Jaded12's "Stars on a String" I got the idea for this.
Here's a new mix of the hip-hop tune "Downtown 81" by Kenneth Masters. A few elements have been rearranged here and there but I was able to loop part of the instrumental and place the bars right in the middle so now, if one were so inclined, a new vocalist can add in their verse pretty seamlessly.
A pencil sketch of Foodpenguin from the MMM2 short film and yet another part of that "something bigger" I have in mind of doing in the near future
This one took a bit longer than the previous 2 drawings in the same series because I couldn't make up my mind on which screen cap to use for reference and the after effects on the film from which I got the screen caps from have made it harder to get a clearer look at Lawrie's face but I was too embarassed to ask him to upload the raw footage. There were several times during the process of drawing this when I felt this looks more like a portrait of a character from a horror movie (for all I know, it probably still does) Though challanging, I really enjoyed working on this piece because I got to draw the rarebear suit and the mice treats designed by jenyffer.maria, which was ENORMOUSLY FUN!
Now I need to figure out on how to draw Mr. Morgansen...
Today I am celebrating my 1rst Hitrecord Anniversary, I am more than happy of been part of this amazing community.
thanks to Joe for create this place and thanks to all the wonderful hitrecorders, that now I can call: FRIENDS, for been such an incredible group of people,
Hugs to everyone and thanks for an amazing year of Happiness, creativity, inspiration and magic.
Decided to edit a little something together this morning while I nursed a hangover. Lemme know what you think. :)
A good man and a prominent Canadian lost his battle with cancer last week. This was the last few lines of a letter he wrote that was released after his death.
I love this passage from through the looking glass, always have. Been planning an animation for about a year but never got round to it, Its my first animation in about 3 years and pretty rough.
Thank you to MetristAdrift for the great reading.
Walrus character took inspiration from LaurenS Window Walrus, and the pig from when pigs fly by naivecrimson.
The rest is russled up from somewhere in my head, would love to do more of the full passage, would love to see other people doing more of the passage, it is a great piece of text and so glad it's in the public domain and we can play around with it.
Damn, this took me much longer than I though it would. I apologize for my poor English. I'm already working on a colored version, but if anyone wants to give it a try, please do!
I was listening to Metaphorest's use of Garageband loops on "More..." a while back and I thought i'd give it a very amateur bash!
'the glass heart'
She follows the trail of the fallen sun
As the shadows of her former self lag behind, one by one
Maze of rocks and crushed leaves
Don't pay too much attention to these lyrics, for they don't make any sense, lol
I‘ll walk, waiting for the train is pain, like a broken little wing on a hawk,
Outliner chalk, Run from a man, when his plan’s, got his hands poppin nickels in a sock,
Nun chuck kickin, rather than a cluck from a rubber duck chicken, luck had the pig stickin, stuck on a stick with an apple he had bitten, little fritter for the critter but the granny’s were forbidden.
I’ll talk, set a kiddie down, I’ll surround every opportunity by the knock, the door’s pad locked, get a glock, get it cocked, roll the barrel, let it rock, never straying from the flock, mark my words, that a couple mocking birds, are repeating all the words that I’ve heard around the block,
Lurking are the cops, always looking the box, are we found, are we lost, when I’m skipping all the rocks,
Never good riddens, run little kittens, have a good night, no light, better bite, when the full moon’s risen, like the crime in a prison, listen to the sound of a soda pop fizzen, cause a shank maker used up all the glass that was missing,
I’ll leave, better get a grip, and achieve and relieve instead of tuggin on a sleeve, throw it Adam Eve, weave little webs, gotta heave from the meds, and I’m seeing many reds, that have bled from a bed, that was hardly even dead, when I said get em fed I wasn’t talking about our heads, in the shed there’s a sled that can flee you from the feds, they were led to your home, started cutting on the bread,
Mama’s gonna make it, never try to take to a steak for a dog who is sleeping never wake it, Relly get him shaking, throw a little fake bake cake, to the state of his mind in amazement,
I know I'm late... but I just like discovered Joe's song "Words We're Wailing", watching the videos from the last shows. Poignant.
Either way, I hadn't originally intended to put vocals at the beginning of this. But after one too many frustrating takes, I just ended singing to calm down. And I decided to keep it with the piano rendition that followed. Enjoy the arrangment.
It's for sure, not for maybe, that I'm all dressed up tonight....
Tiny Stories bow-tie and cuff-links for "Fall Formal"
LydiaSaskia got me in the mood to dress up, I fear I'm not quite as ferocious though! Meek boy, weak boy (or girl in my case aha)...
I love this new mirtle's drawing, specially because I feel identify with this lady, and it's because I look exactly like that in the morning that I have to get out of my bed hahaha.
This is my first video REmix. Heck, this might be the first time I've ever really used iMovie.
I've been playing around with this for a week, trying to get to a point where I'm happy with it, and then tonight I heard ozie's beautiful piano piece, added it and decided to upload what I've got.
ETA: I made a few changes to the transitions between the footage, but most of the video remains unchanged. Check it out!

gentlemen: meet your new life goal! grow yourself one of these and women and men will throw themselves at you! might i suggest you have a golden mustache at the FALL FORMAL?!!?!!
** NOTE: if you use this mustache in a REmix, MAKE SURE TO KEEP THE PROPORTIONS!!! otherwise you will have a NOT VERY GOLDEN MUSTACHE! for shame!!

For photography class we had to take pictures of different angles. This would be a birdseye view from the top of the stairwell leading to the EL.
So this is what I did while waiting for the hurricane to hit! Thanks to Metaphorest for her brilliant song! I've never done video editing before, so please be nice. I'm still compiling resources: all public domain footage from prelinger archives at www.archive.org. Please let me know if I left you out. I really hope this encodes...
on the return trip back to Los Angeles from San Francisco - driving down the CA-138 at night. It was one of those dark straight highways, so I took the chance to record some eerie dark driving footage.
this trip has opened up some pretty spiffy RECording opportunities, this was certainly one of them. And I got more on the way.
No sound on this, since it would have sounded horrible with the wind and everything.
my mind’s emerald eye gazes (enchanted) at
his silly sunburn, freckled white falling into
blushed blistering bronze so he sees that my
sherbet light bulb spins off a silver finger, a divine yo-yo coyly
dabbles in luminescence, incandescent winking taunts between
the trees, their arms open wide waving &ld...
Here's my idea for Joe/BlackBook's photo remix collab.
I'm thinking we should add as many hitRECreatures as possible, the more the merrier! Make it really crowded/chaotic but still organized neatly (I hope I'm making sense) and, if possible, make them 'interact' with the many "Joe"s (they can hug-a-Joe or even punch-a-Joe, sorry Joe!).
If anyone wants the .psd file, let me know :)
Alright, Take 2! There were a few things about the first prototype that were bothersome to me so i fixed them and added the little magnet square feeling highligher thingy...How are you feeling today?
Putting WWW on piano was pure genuis, and I remembered this piece I'd heard from megancarnes (which is beautiful), so I wanted to add the two together in this really soft pretty piece. (Hopefully, I succeeded)
NEW VERSION - http://www.hitrecord.org/records/489816 Basically I just thought, how kick ass would it be to have Joe using the hr sun as a giant fireball while fighting a legion of copyright goon inspired robots! (party inspired by a cool game i sometimes still play on the c64 called escape from the planet of the robot monsters!) Thought i'd also do it in the style of a graphic novel etc too
(Resourced your cute robot Ryan, looking at it inspired the idea, another aspect of remixing - inspiration.)
Hope you like! Lawrie X
I thought it would be fun & easy to just focus on one square. This photo reminded me of my kids running around the house playing superheroes, so I thought I'd turn RegularJOE into a superRECorder.
Someone suggested to start a collab for everyone to REmix ONE square of this photo and see all of the different styles come together, so if you'd like to contribute a square, please add it here: http://hitrecord.org/records/488104
And if you use this for anything, please use the version in the .zip file because it has a tiny correction at the bottom of the background :)
oh, and i know almost nothing about photoshop, so don't judge too harshly :)
UPDATE... Hope maybe some part of this animation could come in useful for anyone creating the Fall Formal Intro Video.
This is an updated version of last years 'Fall Formal" animated intro I did.
May seem a bit of a cheat I know, but there's more to it than just a date change. There are a couple of new text bits which I hope people can take, remix and do whatever with and also this is now 29.97 frames (to keep in line with all the americans!)
....that's a whole extra 4 frames per second, value for money or what!
Et voilà, mes chéris....Last night, I REmembered my favourite toy when I was a little girl. It was a Teddy Bear but I lost it. Then I thought "Maybe he was as sad as I was" and this how I came up with this. BTW, we were very close. Sinatra, if you read this, please come back, so we can catch up and and cuddle up again. Again by heart<3
Thought Marke's A Good Sky For Falling would make a nice background, added some cameras, et voila. Remix away!
Image size was limited to the original upload of the background image, maybe the original is floating around somewhere...
My first image remix - yay!
“misérables assassiner de sang”
Acrylic on Canvas
(This is one of the most “out of the box” painting/drawings I’ve ever completed, but it’s also one of my favs. Of course it has a story to me but feel free to share with me your own)
This idea has been in my head for days,
It's something I wish I will see on hitRECord & maybe (hopefully) at a Fall Formal (no this year it's probably too late)
A kind of rockabilly/swing/close harmony/babershop band called The Hitrecordettes (of course) !
The thing is I'm not a musicien, not a singer & my skills to write are close to zero...
Fortunately there are a lot of great persons here that can do that :)
First example : Alpal did a fantastique wah wah remix of the Wanderer, that's how I got the idea & also thanks to my recent discovering of the Andrews Sisters (never to late to « newly » listen to old music)
Here is a link : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kIFN13-a1iA&feature=BFa&list=PL710734AA4F0628B7&lf=list_related
That would be great to have people dancing like that at hitRECord events !
I'll be delightfully happy if hitRECorders were interested in this, I mean really happy like a 4 years old girl on christmas day <3
Many people can be involved, it needs a song, someone(s) to write it, 3 or more singers & every musicians who want to play instruments used in this music !
If we want to play all the way, we can create fake vinyl album cover, retro commercials, anything about The Hitrecordettes !!! Sorry... Red & blue fireworks just exploded in my head... I got carried away...
I don't know if this idea is worth turning it into a Collab, you'll tell me guys :)
Oh and I can make the dresses <3 I cannot sing, but let me do the sewing ;) Damn got carried away, again...
My REmix for the BlackBook Magazine collab. Sometimes I have an illustration or REmix that just clicks. This was one of them. Thanks for the magic, folks.

When I saw the pictures, I just automatically thought to myself... COLORS AND LINES. So I decided to make it like a color formation wheel with some lines hidden within.
I added to the resources the color layer and the line layer I made to put this work together. If the .PSD file is needed, please contact.
This week the REGULARITY needs you to write! Joel Stein from TIME Magazine asks your help for an article he’s writing about hitRECord. Listen to the hour-long interview that Joel and RegularJOE recorded and write a profile based on it’s contents.
Check out the "TIME Magazine Collaboration" for the details.
Also, it's not too late to contribute your expert twist of the BlackBook photos that can end up being used in BlackBook Magazines's special "REmix" issue.
Calling all Video and Audio editor's. There are two great albums of resources that have been RE-REC'd from last weeks Live Shows in Seattle and San Francisco. So, if your fixing to start cutting and REmixing this is a good place to start.
FCP by Dr. Gory
I wrote this song when I was about 16-17. And although it wasn't too long ago, I'm far more adept at music now and the recording is just awful. Yet somehow it just sounds right to me. It's interesting how sometimes the better musician can be the worse musician.
What’s there to write about?
I don’t know.
What will I play at my next big show?
What’s there to sing about, are we, lyrically poor?
What’s there to talk about, anymore?
Well, I, talk about you I talk about me
And I talk about living and I talk about being
Talk about truth and I talk about breathing
Talk about dis and really believing
Talk about the future and I talk about the past
And I talk about the moments and the ones that last
Talk about the ones that I wanna remember and
Talk about the ones that fade too fast
Talk about the wrong and I talk about the right
And I talk about the dark and I talk about the light
Talk about imbecility, using the facility
Potential reality, complexity, fatality, and living for real
Never knowing where to go, never knowing who to show how, you feel.
What’s there to talk about?
Don’t really care
You wanna talk about how life’s unfair
You wanna talk about things we cannot change
Instead of the weird, the wonderful, and the strange.
Well, let’s, talk about this let’s talk about that
About being tall, short, long-legged or fat
Physical impurities, nature’s greatness and furies
Talk about who you hate, love like
Talk about being, not being alike
Loving what’s inside of me, wondering what’s in store for me
Philosophical debate, being good not being great
Accepting choice, dismissing fate
Embracing love, rejecting hate
Being who you wanna be, not being who they wanna see.
What to be sure about, do you wanna know?
Do you wanna know when to stop and go?
Fill your heart with certainty or doubt
But there’s always something to, talk about.
Well, I, talk about you I talk about me
And I talk about living and I talk about being
I talk about truth and I talk about breathing
Talk about dis and really, believing.
Crack open your mind

OKAY. Mixed together bits of various records that had been done of Blackbook 2, trying to get a range of different contributions in, and added some on top of each other...got a bit of something in each box.

Immediately upon seeing wirrow's gorgeous “mountain tops are lifting,” I couldn't get the idea of doing it in stained glass out of my mind (I also thought it could be cool as a quilt... anyone want to take that one on?). Anyways, I most desperately wanted it hanging in my window. And now it does:) And I only bled a very little bit in the process (glass, as one might expect, is rather sharp (as are the edges of the copper foil tape, which was more of a surprize)).
Making of video coming soon! is here: http://www.hitrecord.org/records/494472
This is nicole.c.silver's picture - The reflection from the clouds captured in this photo - absolutely magnificant!! I wasn't so worried about keeping the person or trees sharp/clear so much because I wanted to exemplify the water also allowing that to be the ceter of attention. I mainly left the photo black & white with a splash of color left on the reflection and a bit of "reflective color" on the person.
It's beautiful - thank you nicole.c.silver

I love this Tori's picture, so I decide to make a remix taking to Morgan and Destiny to a wonderful date near the lighthouse! :o)
Here you go! Just a quick little video to show the steps of how the remix was made, including the addition of awesome records by Tengeku and inspiration from Ryan Patrick. And Ozies awesome joe vs robots music - This is an awesome example of how one record can isnpire artists of another media to contribute. So included is a portion of the music but please check out the rest of Ozies song, and also Day glos story!

I'm kind of a zombie at the moment so I'm not sure if this flows as well as it should, but I thought Joe's point (quote at the end) was really important, so I tried to frame it as follows:
I made a lil song featuring an edited version of ManWithHat's kickass lyrics. Hope you don't mind exclusions, kind sir.
Hey hitRECord, I'm officially a one-year old! I decided to make this video, first time doing something of this sort. I'm incredibly awkward in front of a camera and not very eloquent when I place myself on the spot. I just wanted to reflect on my year, the circle tiny story, hitrecord at the movies, the future, etc. I get kind of rambly (hence the random edits) so if you want quick entertainment, I left some random quick bloopers in the end (at approx. 5:50). I also tried to film this on an earlier date, but then the audio got messed up so I promise, I didn't randomly go change.
:} Thank you all for an amazing year.
I don't know why but at the first moment that I saw this great picture of the moon, I think about the Shadows, so this is the result! I hope you like it guys!!!
Not exactly a tiny illustration but metaphorest's tiny story and wirrow's changed inspired this.
Haven't used oil pastels in about 15 years but looks like they've bested me again...sorry it's so messy haha.
This is Ida, Cowboy Joe's love interest. She works in the town's saloon and assists Cowboy Joe on some of his RECventures.

A teeny stop motion on the occasion of my second hitRECord anniversary. I love you all and am so very, very grateful for the amazing support I've gotten from this community for the last 24 months. It's helped my confidence no end, encouraged me to learn new skills and best of all, brought me into contact with an incredible group of people who I don't hesitate to call true friends. Gush gush etc etc :P Anyway, here's me in a bunch of hats! <3
The girl sat down by the front window of Jill’s Coffee and Donuts. She didn’t know the reason he had asked her to meet him there, just that he had said it was urgent. She ar...
HIGH RES VERISON FOR REMIXING PURPOSES

The first portion of this is about hitRECord and Joseph Gordon-Levitt. The second is about my experience with hitRECord.
Record #11: TIME & SPACE WHAT IS THIS
I wanna ride on a hot air balloon
Climb the stairway to the stars, stop by Jupiter and Mars
I wanna take a trip to Pluto and the moon
I wanna sail across the galaxies with you
I wanna step into a time machine with you
Think of all that we would see, travelling back in history
I wanna waltz right back to the ice age with you
I wanna jump from page to page, and live through medieval days with you
‘Cause time and space
Is the perfect place
To live out our days
Yea, time and space
There’s no better way
To live out our days
I wanna walk into a caravan with you
Join a hunt and gather clan, be the first to see the land
I wanna ride on through a ghost town with you
Feel the sun upon our backs, walk along the railroad tracks
I wanna dive into the ocean with you
Swim along a school of fish, stake out a sunken ship
I wanna hike into the jungle with you
I wanna get a little lost and find my way right back to you
cleaned the vocals. thickened guitar.
i wrote this stricly for the hr community. so collaborate! no plans for this outside of hr.
This piece is inspired by Lawrie Brewster's illustration Joe VS the Copyright Bots. You can see it here; http://hitrecord.org/records/488242 . Originally, I wanted to score a battle scene, but it turned out to be a pre-battle theme. Maybe for both sides? You tell me...
I added LizRECord's blackbook illustration, because a similar image was also in my head at some point writing the piece... it came in toward the end.
Recently I found an amazing drawing of Lionel (MMM2) made by cat-cat. Before, I play a little bit with the drawing that she did of Destiny, and now, I decide to do something using both, cat-cat is extremely talented and we all love Morgan and Destiny stories, and I used as an adition the amazing R.M.S Metaphorest made by Lawrie Brewster, wich is amazing, so I hope you all like this! happy weekend everyone!!
so... today, I took a series of excellent, awesomely created pieces of art, and made them inexcusibly ridiculous.
um. this is why i can't have nice things.
part two tomorrow! :D
Last night the sky exploded,
