1. Vinyl Joe by steverolston
There are so many great portraits of Joe being done for the album cover art collaboration but for me this is one of two that I've chosen that really sticks in the mind. I love the style.
...and get ready! by shu
A second Joe portrait that I love and seems quite different to a lot of the others I've seen. The addition of one of the new t-shirts Joe's been sporting is a nice touch.
2. Brown Sock, Blue Sock: A Story of Socks and Violence by 13ftfall
This is a truly epic story of loss, heartache and action. It just happens to be about socks. Awesome.
3. The Minister's Daughter by Babbish
I'm not sure how to put it, so I hope it makes sense. This song has such a developed story to it that I can see quite clearly the world/environment that it's set in. So anyway, in short - love it!
4. Eat My Nuts by krrr
A fucking rocking song used to great effect in the Hesher videos. Makes me glad to have long hair so I can headbang to the best of my ability.
5. ShitRECord dot Whore REquest (REmix) by MattConley
...which uses the Eat My Nuts Song! Very funny and Spencer and Joe clips are mixed fantastically. Yes, I do love it but I do get a little sad whenever I see the 'May 13' put on these videos. I am in the UK. Fuck. If I had the money I would essentially be buying the most expensive cinema ticket ever as I'd fly to the US to see it. I hope I'm being an idiot and just can't find info on UK release dates. Please enlighten if anyone knows!
6. The Prize - Music Video by creative_green13
Sock puppets! Genius idea. We need more sock puppets. It's what the site has been missing.
7. Foreign Sounds (video) by bsmith and amferraro
I am so in love with this song and the video for it is incredible. Such control of the camera as it moves around and to capture such a fantastic live performance. I can't say enough good things about it.
8. The 'How' (variant) by fredwatford
A great video showing a hitRECorder in his computer creating a RECord. Very inventive.
9. mother roar by InkedCanvas
A poem version in rhyme building on the 'What If..' collaboration. Really nicely done and I love the line about bats.
10. Double Record by Babbish
Recently I've recommended some RECords that show the creative process and Babbish's collaboration is asking for video behind the scenes of you making your RECords, whatever they may be and upload this video at the same time as your finished product. I will do this on the next thing I work on. Could be mixed to show all sorts of things in the making.
Uploading this one because It will probably be easier to re-use than the other as there is a greater contrast of color and opacity. Here is the original. http://hitrecord.org/records/321689
amferraro and i found the darkest, sketchiest alley we could and recorded this rendition of foreign sounds. we were only attacked once.
what if earth spun in the opposite direction
or if stars didn't twinkle for lack of affection
what if the sun shone at night
or if the moon hid from sight...
Oh boy, General Sockpuppet took over the music video shoot...
.......you cocksucking fucks. (ps. I made this to follow certain points of Jump In The Fire 2..........fuckers)
REmixed spencer's "hesherRECord - collaboration intro" for ShitRECord dot Whore.
HESHER / MAY 13th
The minister's daughter drinks holy water,
to keep the devil from her soul.
The minister's daughter hears of
jailhouse slaughters and sings gospel
to rock n roll, now.
An eye for an eye and a tooth
for the truth, she's my next
God is gonna save her from her
self indulgent behavior, but
you know he does no favors, now.
The first will be first and the last will
I'm good friends with her cuz I don't
wanna be cursed.
The word of christ is not to say in vein,
but she's a straight shooter in a winding lane.
Please little miss won't you keep him away
from the bees, cuz up in trees is where birds
and worms get along, now.
I was in love with a down mister singing
holy scriptures he was ticking like an atom bomb, now.
Now don't it feel to be, Now don't it feel to be,
Now don't it feel so good to be so wrong.
I saw the request for a "hard-line pen & ink type thing" of Joe for the 7" Vinyl cover. That pretty accurately describes my style so I thought I'd give it a go.
