i did a little soul-searching. hope this helps someone out there... <3
- 2cool4school / RE: SCHOOL
I loved NotaBand's original song - and just wanted to play around today.
So I re-recorded the parts I sang for 'Either/Order' and the 'RE: Games' opening music.
And added a lil '2 cool 4 school' thang in there.
I'll upload the stems later. :)
So, this pots and pans add is just for the 'percussion breakdown' at 1:38. I've given a bit before and a 4 beat count in to help syncing. The 4 beats will need to be deleted. This is beat 1. Beat 2 is here and the audio stems are here.
It was actually a really windy, cloudy day when i filmed this. My camera is HORRIBLE sorry. However, I got to use my shotgun mic with blimp and 'dead wombat' (Aussie film-makers will know what I'm talking about) for the audio. Actually really surprised how well it came out.
- Social Media Song (working title)
//EDIT: I thought this could fit the theme RE: Future as well! :)
I'll be honest, I'm not very good at using social media (I don't have instagram or tumblr, rarely go to facebook, never got the hang of twitter and haven't got a clue what reddit is), but I'm very fascinated by this world and the affect it has on people. It for sure brings people closer to each other by giving the possibility to share your life with people from near and far in a second. No matter what the distance, all your friends can be a part of your life and you can be a part of theirs. But if someone shares his food, face, body, feelings, thoughts, dreams, fears, everything with these 500-1000 facebook friends, I can't help but ask, is anything private anymore? Where does the line go between too much and just enough? What is the affect of having practically no privacy? I'm also fascinated by the fact that strangely while bringing people closer to each other than ever before, social media might also pull some people away from each other. Instead of a phone call or an invite for a dinner, one might just settle for commenting on a picture or liking a status. It's super interesting and (to me at least) in some ways a bit scary too, like how far are we willing to go with this?
So because music is how I function, I wrote this silly song about the subject. And now I just found a theme suggestion RE: Privacy, so why not upload it here! To be honest I just realized I haven't uploaded anything here in three months (been super busy studying, aaand going to graduate this spring!!!), so it's about time to get back on RECording, I'm super happy to share this one with you guys!! Feel free to REmix, play along, sing along, and of course,
Some might call it a cage
But I call them blind who just can’t see
That here the world is my stage
I am the king, everyone likes and follows me
Yeah haters, you can wipe away the frown
I only log in to this world because I care
So lights off, curtains down
Can’t you see I’m trying to interact and share?
No you don’t need to call
Just check my status and you know how do I do
No I don’t need a hug,
Just like my profile pic and I will like you
What is privacy?
What do you mean?
Of course everybody needs to know
All about my weirdest sex dreams
I must share my lasagna
On twitter tumblr instagram & facebook
Yes sir, they all truly give a shit
About my mood, location, and outfit of the day
I mean how could we live without it?
It adds so much meaning in many ways!
What is privacy?
What do you mean
I shouldn’t share a picture of
My grandpa’s corps and me?
Would not be complete without the screen
But I don’t know the true distance
That’s in between of everyone and me
That shit about ”personal space”
Is old fashioned these days, my silly dear
So come up to my face
Come so close that you can see the pixels clear
What is privacy what do you mean
There should be secrets we can keep
I do not know what all this means
Just let me communicate in peace,
It’s the only way I know,
- New Year reading
Had an hour to kill, so I was looking around on the site and saw this "Recite a poem every day" collaboration that Capt. Claire started. "Hey, I like reciting poems!" said I. Found an album by thisistedwells called Favorite HitRECord Poetry, and looked through that. Found a piece of writing I liked by thatwasnotveryravenofyou, and well...
it's been too long. a year, maybe,
it should have been the same this time,
you plow on, right over whatever you see
it's small and lovely, you say. it’s exactly right for her.
it’s quiet between us for a moment. you play with
(i wonder if you're waiting
i smile. i grip your hand and say,
some of our friends start to trickle in. it's almost
you and i hang back a little, cling to each
the air is thick and dark, heavy with fog. we smoke
i don't look at you,
we pass the bottle back and forth, taking messy
you take one last long drink as we leave
i take a sip, lips hanging a little
you watch me.
i wonder if you are thinking it too,
later, you walk a little ahead,
In simple moments such as these,
Have I ever truly been,
