What Your Eyes Say

And here’s a demo for Hallowe’en. It needs a proper arrangement but I think I’m pretty close. As usual I spent a lot of time just figuring out how to get things to sound right, which is of course the last thing I should be worrying about! That means I spent a good four hours on this and this is the third variation. Oy vey!

Still another unnamed idea. Having a hard time these days attaching words to my feelings and ideas.

Not much as far as “demos” are concerned, but more like studio experiments. Except that I don’t have a studio, it’s just me dicking around at home. If only I had a little bit more time to actually flesh some of these things out, I’d be the next Spencer Krug, damnit. Or maybe at least the next Tris McCall. Hey batter, batter, sa-wing batter… againandagainandagain ah sa-wing batter…

3/4 Adventurism

leave a comment »

I’ve had this idea swimming around for something in 3/4 that’s been nagging at me, so I’ve sketched out what I think are the first two parts. There are at least two other parts up there but I have to turn in to bed now. Just naming these things by date for now.

How to waste time when you are not feeling well

  1. Read an article about former Rhode Island Senator Lincoln Chafee supporting Barack Obama.
  2. Read about Rhode Island on wikipedia
  3. Find out that “Rhode Island” is actually the name of an island. The state is officiall called “The State of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations”. I can see why they dropped the last part.
  4. Find out that Rhode-Islanders speak in a non-rhotic accent
  5. Find out that no one is sure where the General American accent originated. Weird.
  6. Find out that what distinguishes a New York accent from New Jersey is that NJ is rhotic, while parts of NY, Mass, Conn, and Maine have non-rhotic accents. Think Peter Griffin from Family Guy.
  7. Find out the The Angry Video Game Nerd is a “Notable speaker with a New Jersey Accent“, listed just below Bruce Willis. No wonder why I think of him as an upstanding individual. He doesn’t have a “funny accent”.
  8. Hey, he’s from Seaside Heights. Go figure.
  9. Eat soup and watch Angry Video Game Nerd videos. Of the Power Glove: “it’s easier to do a hand stand while taking a shit”

Here’s another pseudo-electronic maximalist experiment.
