This is my dog Jorje. My dad got him for me for my 30th birthday. He is my darling doggie and he loves his hat.
01:58 somebody giving a tattoo
This is Kasey. She's a tattoo artist in Salt Lake City, Utah and both she and her client were willing to give me waivers to let me come in and film & photograph this tattoo session. When I told Kasey on the phone what I was working on, she was overjoyed to participate with HitRecord's Remix & Authorship project.
*NOTE: I was a guest in this very personal space and it would have been outlandish for me to ask them to turn off their music. Just a heads up that there is music in the background that isn't ours.
I will be posting more from this session in the next few days. Right now, I'm trying to charge my camera batteries and just decompress myself a bit. It's far too hot outside to be doing this stuff. :)
This is stripped-downversion a beat I made. It was FULL of horn samples from famous artists, so I cut it all away to see what would be left and what the result would sound like.
The layered drum loops are cool and evolve over the couse of the "song".
There are some cool string breakdowns (at halfway and the at end).
There's some cool guitar loops I made over the last third of the song.
There's already a full structure in place, or you can slice it all up!

Language is the code that we use everyday. Switching from a known language to an unknown language while talking can be a way of keeping secrets.
When I hear an unknown language I’m facinated by the mystery behind it.
In this sense, interpreters play a key role in revealing the secret. Similarly to a secretary, professional interpreters come across with some big secrets (on a nation wide level) they are obliged not to reveal.
Here is 31 of the hollow-petaled origami daffodils which I made so far in 2 1/2 hours. The most experienced ones did 60 something and 78 during that time! This is for our attempt to break the Guinness World Record for Largest Display of Origami Flowers to promote cancer awareness and origami as a form of artistic expression. All proceeds will go to the Canadian Cancer Society.
Unfortunately we have to use a specific paper that they have a tight fist on and for good reason I suppose..some people find it too hard to make or too hard to commit to.
I do appreciate all your offers to help out though! If you still want to help though and you have twitter or fb (or any other social media), you can contact me on my profile page to share the link that helps promote the project. This will spread awareness of the project :) I don't want to canvas on HR...
Hope to post more as we progress. I think they will reach 20,000 by this week.
