The one I had from Virginia expired back in November. Where I’m going, I might need to drive. So, I thought it a wise decision to renew. I’ve been living in NYC for nearly 4 years and am just now getting a NY license, and it only took about 4 hours from the time I left the house to the time I got back. No fuss. No hassle. Just $60.75 and a lot of waiting and listening to podcasts.
I was finally able to get all 4.27 GB of my copy of Komplete Elements that I purchased on Friday.
Now that I have a respectable synth library, I’m one step closer to giving you multiple volumes of my upcoming album series entitled “Music to Vlog by”, which I’ll be starting in earnest when I return to NYC in mid-July. I’ll be fiddling around with bits and pieces while I’m away, but the majority of writing and recording will take place when I get back.
I just finished reading all of the rules and stuff for the remix contest for Kimbra's "Settle Down".
The way it works is that after the entry period, there’s a voting period. One vote per email address. The top ten voted remixes will then be judged by Kimbra, as well as some others, I think. (The rules didn’t state who the other judges would be, if there even would be.)
So, I’m going to need everyone to vote for me when the time comes (mid-June). I’ll post links and all that jazz when it’s time. Thanks, in advance, for your support! You’ve given me loads of it already by liking my stuff.
I am writing you from the future. And by the future, I mean tomorrow. Don't worry, the internet is still here. Sleep is okay. Preferable, actually. Now go past me... you have many z's to catch. And to prove that this is really me (you), I know that you ( I ) record voice-over auditions in your (our) underwear. There should be no doubts now. Goodnight, you (me) (us?).. now I'm confused...
For the past two days, instead of doing the multitude of things that I should’ve been doing, I decided to try my hand at doing a remix! This is the first time I’ve ever done anything like this. I’m doing it for a contest on Indaba Music.
I figured that most people who do remixes just go for a dance mix type thing or pump up the beats and slap rap over it. I wanted to go as far away from that as possible. So, I only used Kimbra’s lead vocals and some of the backing vocals and added in a bunch of live instrument stuff (i.e. flutes, guitar, and various beat boxing).
Let me know what you think of it and if there’s anything glaringly wrong that needs to be fixed. It’s best listened to with headphones to get the full stereophonic effect.
I was working on other creative projects all day and completely forgot to draw today’s strip until around 3:30am. I got finished with it at around 4:40am, though. So, it doesn’t have my usual coloring and shading and stuff, but I had fun drawing lots of things I’m working on all in one panel.
Just got home from a 14 1/2-hour long day at work.
And, I have to get up in 6 1/2 hours to do more. I’m exhausted but glad I’m working, though I am missing out on all manner of Tinychat shenanigans.
I’ll hopefully catch you guys next time.
The days I’m not working are being filled with line memorization and violin practice. I’ve only got about two-and-a-half weeks until I have to be off-book for both of the shows I’m doing this summer.
Heck, the way my schedule looks, I might not be able to chat with you guys until both shows open at the end of June…dang it…and after I went and invited someone new into our little group of silly chatting…
