|08:57 pm - instant pleasure|
so mad decreed quite awhile ago that, when singing, i sound just like rufus wainwright. this despite her never having heard me at all, let alone heard me singing (as far as i remember). nonetheless, as per her long-standing request, i am somewhat proud to present:
just ignore my voice's constantly going out of key, and that stupid buzzing noise behind the solo that i can't seem to get rid of
instant pleasure (stupid mix)
here i threw some pre-echo on the vocals. it somewhat masks me going offkey, and in a few parts sound kinda cool. mostly though, it sounds dumb. ah well. i also changed the timing of the solo a little, i'm not sure which way i prefer it.
here's the original, in case you've never heard it. it's really really good.
next project, assuming i bother: death clock!
np: planet smashers
Hey! Yeah! We need that Death Clock mix! I submitted like two or three samples to that sucker!
i've still got em, don't worry. someday i will be inspired and create my masterwork
best idea ever: share this on kazza or somehwere else as a live recording of Rufus and see what happens :O) mwhahahahahhahahah!
hahahah! that would be cruel and hilarious
hahahah! that would be cruel and hilarious. if only i would have some way to find out what people thought once htey'd listened to it
perhaps add in to the description (email XXXX@XXX.com with your opinion on this live performance) or something like that?? probably wouldnt get much, but it would be worth a shot :O) sounded pretty good btw :O)

downloading now. cos i just gotta hear you sing. i kind of remember what your voice sounds like. i always think "i should call up dan sometime, just to talk to him and hear what he sounds like" and then i remember that i did once!
Too bad the mic distorted your voice so much because it hides how much you and Rufus sound alike ;)
Actually I think you have a nice voice except for the off-key stuff. Even that's kind of cool :)
that is some intense wowing action!
haha it is a pretty shitty mic, actually. 10$ at radio shack like 6 years ago. and i stitched it all together (guitar + solo + singing) in microsoft sound recorder (which i also used to raise the volume and add the echo). so, ya know, high quality all around
thank you. i didn't used to think so, but lately i kindof agree. except the off key, there's nothin cool there, it's just cruddy. i wish i could get notes properly

Finally got around to listening today. Well done, sir. :) And frankly, you sound better than Rufus - at least you pronounce the words instead of drunkenly slurring them. ;-)
i like rufus' drunken slurring
