I grew up in the 80s and 90s and am the son of a giant nerd so I grew up with some awesome Science Fiction movies, television and books.
Most science fiction films take place in the future and one of things I’ve always been interested in is the depiction of the future in movies. As our present technology advances so does the idea of the future.
If you look at the future in an 80s or 90s Science Fiction movie it’s drastically different from how the future is depicted in a Sci Fi movie coming out now in 2014.
My friends and I refer to it as the “Old Future.” We went from over complicated blinking lights to everything being touch screen or holographic.
So my question is how differently was the future depicted in the past compared to now? What did these movies and books get right and what did they get wrong? How does the advancement of our own present day technology affect how the future is depicted in cinema and literature?
What happened to the old future?
This footage gets good like half way through especilly when the bird flies in front of the sun.
Here's some footage of when I went whale watching. Sorry.... No whales.
My camera isn't that great but I made a timelapse video of the blood moon the other night.
Enjoy and happy remixing.
Things are constantly being created around us.
Babies are born every day.
Musicians create songs.
Directors create movies
Architects create buildings
Who created us?
Why do we have a need to create?
What would happen if we stopped creating?
Almost everything we do in our life is a collaboration.
At your job you work as a team and collaborate to finish projects.
Love is a collaboration.
Parenting is a collaboration.
People rarely do anything completely on their own. Even if you were to say write and record and sing a song all by yourself you're still using instruments and programs that someone else created so that's a collaboration in its self.
Everything we do on Hitrecord is a collaboration.
Animals and insects collaborate in nature to get things done.
Do we collaborate with animals and insects?
There's probably literally hundreds of instances of collaboration that I didn't even mention that goes on in our every day life. There's probably even forms of collaboration that happen right under our noses that we aren't even aware of.
I think "Collaboration" should be a theme for season 2.
You either love something or you hate it.
You can love someone or you can hate someone. You can love a movie or hate a movie. You can love your country and hate another country.
Love and hate are such strong words and on the complete opposite of the spectrum.
I love to hate you and hate to love you.
Why are there so many love songs? I hate love songs!
What makes someone love or hate something or someone?
Why do people hate one thing and love another?
What makes someone hate something so much that they will kill over it? What makes someone love someone or something so much that they will risk their own life?
What do you love? What do you hate?
- Black Magic Beat
Been trying out some different drums sounds and this beat just kind of came out of experimenting with some African drum sounds. This track could definitely use a fat bass line and has some room for some guitar parts and maybe even some actual hip hop beats in it and not just the natural drum sound. Also it could use a bridge. AND of course it needs vocals. I'm imagining rap but you never know, do your thing.
If anyone wants the stems just let me know. :)
- You (ARE) not the only one
I loved the beat that NOTaband made with "You're not the only one" and then the additions that Ashes2Ashes made were super next level so I had to do something with it. I feel like the end needs something more. Maybe something more as far as rapping goes. I dunno.
Again no record is EVER complete.
I actually wrote this about 2 years ago around the time I made the other two. I finally decided to bring it to life. Now I'm a pretty terrible photoshopper and I know this is pretty crude but if there are any good photo manipulaters that can make some smoother versions of each character that would be awesome. Please save them as PNG files. Each character should be in the resources of this record.
I mean this whole thing is supposed to be a little crude but uhhh not this bad. haha.
