Dear Ser Bryant Cumberfell,
Twenty-two. I have completed twenty-one letters over the past several nights, and this will be the twenty-second. At the advice of the good doctor who's left me bedridden and stiff, I have decided to pen letters to settle my debts, lest my conscience be weighed down and prevent my flight to heaven!
Bryant, I can think of no other friendship that lasted quite as long or ended quite as poorly as ours. When we met in grade school, I felt the utmost amazement at finding another soul so carefully intent on perfecting his Windsor knot (did you ever get the hang of that?), although I still insist that the half-Windsor would be more flattering, given the girth of your neck and size of your head (it's surprising how poorly you performed at academics, given all the room your brain had).
We'd a friendship unlike any known to man - you were content to keep out of the limelight, insisting that I court the ladies and drink brandy with the men. My favourite moments were when you'd spill wine on yourself (you hardly could remember left from right, you clumsy dog) and sit quietly as the table snickered and scoffed, so many inside jokes were created at your inspiration. You were always such a good sport, ensuring nothing short of the best for me. I think it gave you a great senes of pride to do so - I often saw you wipe tears of what I assume were joy and happiness from your face (which gave your enormous head an awful rose hue - did you ever purchase that hat I told you of or did you lack the funds even 'til the end?).
And perhaps what happened with Milifred Boyles was the closest thing I have to regret. Ser Bryant, I will confess that 'twas not her beauty nor disposition that attracted me to her (in fact, from behind I would mistake her for you except that she was twice as clumsy!) but when she served that Yorkshire pudding - I couldn't believe it. It was like heaven inside my mouth - even now I salivate at the very thought of it! And it drove me crazy, to know that she used her exquisite culinary skills to make Yorkshire Pudding and Shepherds' Pie and Cumberland sausage for a slob like you - a man who would put more of it in his lap than his mouth. I was driven nearly insane with jealousy and hunger.
I stayed up nights dreaming of her bangers and mash, craving her bubbles and sqeak. And of you, who hardly noticed the food on the table, you who was too busy "discussing interests" and "making plans" to finish your plate - I could never understand how you could be so rude!
Milifred was stubborn at first, refusing my offers and rejecting my efforts to woo her. Her loyalty to you was both strong and stupid - why should a woman with her talents waste them on a man who did not appreciate them? So one day I told her of you and MaryAnne. I said that you had been courting another behind her back and that you could not stand the sight of her food, let alone stomach it. She went to the grocer's that morning as I instructed her to do and she saw you and MaryAnne picking apples together, your hand on her shoulder. And when I saw her next, her face was disfigured and rosied from crying (I suggested a hat for her, as well). Daft woman never found out that MaryAnne was your sister.
Looking back, I cannot believe I was so stupid. My stomach ruled my head and you and I haven't spoken since. I can still see your pink, pouty face like a balloon tied too tight with that silly full-Windsor knot and I miss it. It has taken me a long time, but I finally realize my mistake:
I should have just asked her for the recipes.
Bryant, I should have just ASKED HER FOR THE RECIPES! For days Milifred cried and cried and was so distraught, that I graciously allowed her an escape from her culinary duties for a few hours, but then she'd cry when she'd cook and the food was ruined! Absolutely ruined. Salty and full of bitter morose. I promptly asked her to leave. Can you imagine? The audacity.
Was this an oversight on my part, Bryant? Yes, it was. But there it is, the closest moment to regret I've found.
And unfortunately, I was never able to find a suitable replacement, were you?
If so, please include their contact information in a return correspondence.

I recently saw a similar, but heavily discounted hat at the haberdashery on Golden Way. Perhaps you can scrape together the funds for purchase. Priorities, Bryant, priorities.
(a.k.a. RegularJOE lied about math, AGAIN!! :P)
- ANYONE CAN UNDERSTAND THIS VIDEO!!!! Don't be intimidated by math!! It's written into your DNA <3
- There was a line in Joe's RE:Patterns monologue that was... not right. In this, I explain why.
- It seems people think the golden spiral is all over nature... this is WRONG! What you're actually seeing are LOGARITHMIC SPIRALS!
- Do you wanna be a phi fangirl? Or a Fibonacci fangirl? That's ok! I'll tell you why you should be...
- But most importantly, you should fangirl LOGARITHMIC SPIRALS! and the constant e=2.71828...
- For some reason, the audio may veer off course towards the end... I hope this isn't too upsetting! I can try reuploading if needed. x
Over the past few weeks, I've been thinking a lot about HitRECord and how to improve channels of communication. Communication has also been something that has been broug...
my copy of the very limited fourth issue of the HitRECorderly series, "On The Road", arrived in the mail today, so I thought I'd record some video of the book detail and the postcards, for any REmixing purposes, with snippets of the issue's featured music*
and it feels really nice to see my dear friends and collaborators included as well :)
I've been a part of two amazing HitRECorderly productions (#2 Move On The Sun vinyl and #4 On The Road book), and I hope to be a part of any future ones
I resourced as many RECords used in the book that I could find. Please check them out and (if you haven't yet) give them a much-deserved heart!
Thanks HitRECord <3
*just noticed Lovely Visions, for some reason, wasn't on the playlist in the video. don't know how/why that happened, but it sucks bc it's one of my favorites from it. sorry Devin!!
So I had a crack at the film in general and the hardest part was picking which voice over I liked the best... So I picked 6 of them :D. This needs alot of work so I made a list of things people can help add to the video:
(basically it needs)
-more background sounds including music (subtle)
- more visuals in certain scenes (illustrators you can help :)
-I think a generic noise to transition each "BLINK" would be helpful to transition abruptly but in a way that the watcher can identify
-Background children playing noises
- maybe some drawn/ illustrated visuals to add to the affect of the overall party atomosphere?
-I know the card wanted in the shotlist was the queen of spades but i found the part with the little girl using the queen of diamonds looked better so if anyone wants to change it feel free.
-background gigling? or some sort of happiness expressed in sound (doesn't have to line up with footage)
-maybe illustrated distant trees? something hardly noticable but will make it more realistic.
- more background for the beginning part
Ya guys thats it enjoy and REMIX REMIX REMIX!!!
