I don't entirely know why I felt compelled to do this, likely inspired by Eric doing so many portraits, but here is a portrait I did of you! It's a style I've been itching to try out and I just ran with it. Also gave me a chance to see if I can work on my laptop outside of home on an art project like this.
Hope you had a great new year and holiday XRae.
I had this idea of how to show lilybet's letter being performed from future self to past self, so I got in touch with Natcha (smudgeofpaint) who helpfully collaborated with me and shot the footage so we could put it together into this video.
Many many thanks to Natcha for being brilliant, tireless and so very talented!

--Silly and clunky little rhymey poem about why we record.
John liked to write.
Ellie Could sing.
Pete plucked away at his violin string.
Alex would look through a lens and he'd shoot.
Cameron would paints tiny pieces of fruit.
Dax played the flute
Steven the fiddle
Jaime could Edit the end from the middle.
John wished he could sing without his voice cracking.
Alex wanted to draw but she felt her skills lacking
Ellie can't write to save her own life.
Pete found his photography wouldn't suffice.
Cameron decided his art was a waste
If he couldn't make something technologically based.
Dax and Steven And Jaime conceded
that their lives would be better if
they'd had talent they needed.
All of these people had felt they weren't right
Not good enough and missing a piece of the light.
If only they'd been better at this or at that
If only that A sharp hadn't been flat.
So John wrote a letter to a love that had gone.
About sadness betrayal and not moving on.
With beautiful prose and magnificent verse
He bled through his pen and let pain take its course.
Though he couldn't send it, No he couldn't resign.
To showing such weakness and lack of a spine.
So Instead he did what the rest of us do.
He pushed that Red button to help him get through.
Ellie saw it's beauty and made it a song.
She let the notes bellow from her lungs deep and strong.
Pete felt the tune move quick through his bow.
Steven added the beat
Dax mixed up the flow.
Cameron used all his red on a still beating heart.
With a knife in the middle and a blade at the part.
Alex made film with the tune that inspired
I was so excited about the new song and painting for Sarah (Metaphorest) but I didn't want to just do another anthromorphization.
FEREL by James(SnickerSnack) has hung in my home and is a favorite..was so excited he uploaded it! LIGHTBULB!
I hope you enjoy my first interpretation and REmix for Animal,Man by Metaphorest

Here's a silly little logo bumper featuring our friend the REC button. This is (essentially) my 400th RECord so I thought I should commemorate it with something extra fun. Maybe it can be used somewhere. Ridiculous bonus at the end.
Thanks for all the good times.

This holiday season, don't forget to wish your old discarded breaking down robots a merry christmas, too!
(also I am working on something for Herbert and Isle, and this is why this was created. But also seriously don't forget about your old robots, too. Not cool)
