- 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,
this photo was found in an archive and scanned in, sent to me by a lady who use to babysit me when I was 4 years old.
As promised, here is the pine ballet raw footage. I know, I know. There aren't any actual pine trees. But we can cheat, right?

- Glass (LizSmalls remix)
Having a lot of fun singing some of the beautiful poems that are being posted!
Here's a song remix of LizSmalls's powerful poem, Glass.
I purposely left space for a rap or some spoken word so please have at it, everyone!
Also, this could totally use more instruments - guitars, bass, keyboards, etc. etc. etc.
Stems are now posted and resourced as well!
this is what i have so far. I still need to do a few more hands and the back view of the body as well as the head. I was inspired by Dotunfolded's "falling" piece. And I used beautifulfool's pincecone photography for the final skirt example on the far right to sort of give a preview of what the pieces of my dancer look like when attatched to photography. I will be uploading a transparent tiff version of the pieces as soon as possible to make the job easier on animators if they choose to use my piece.
Edit: here's a link to the PSD file so far: dancer-psd . I will revise it and add one more file with a few more body parts, mainly hands and the back view.
I'm thinking of doing two more characters for a bit of variety.
PS. I'm glad everyone likes it so much. :) Thanks I'll try and finish the rest of this ASAP. <3
