Happy Birthday Joe!
Though I don't have much to give at the moment for your birthday Joe, I do have an image I created that I feel represents HitRECord perfectly. Here at HitRECord all our hearts come together and through working with one another our dedication and our love for art shines through. Again, Happy birthday Joe by <3
I am going to have a daughter this summer and this afternoon I got my first real glimpse at her. It was an experience of immeasurable beauty and joy.
While it is one thing to see the whole body in its entirety, it was particularly amazing to watch the heart beat. The ultrasound camera is creates so many visual perspectives and sometimes you are viewing the exterior of the baby, and other times you are suddenly within the body, viewing the organs and the muscles.
I'll never forget one particular moment where the heart was the main focus on the screen. It's beating at around 142 bps and it looks so tiny, and yet it's so prominent. But what really struck me was the baby's whole body seemed to just be a glowing outline. In that series of moments it became clear to me that our bodies truly are just physical vessels.
Oh, and I absolutely loved what the technician said to us about her job and how much she loves doing it. I just had to use that audio byte to open the video.
thom & dan, bump hearts together, outside the recroom. <3 sundance 2010
Bird Puns! Inspired by Metaphorest's Pelican/t, I thought that we could do a series of bird related puns, either through terrible jokes, or visual puns, or silly videos of seagulls. A few people already did Toucan jokes, so I know you guys are up for puns. If enough people like the idea, i'll put together a collaboration (if i can figure out how).
Why have I been on a song about dying in a life love's arms these last few days as I turn thirty? I honestly don't know. Wrote the words a couple nights ago. Thinking of a sort of drunk sing-along. Metaphorest and Lizziemackie just recorded a beautifully sweet version of it earlier today. Here's what I whipped up on Garageband this wee pre-dawn. Far from finished, we'll see how this one pours out... If you really wanna do something for my birthday, maybe sing along to this? :O?
