Project for Awesome SUFFER THE CONSEQUENCES OF YOUR AWESOME.

Or something.

I dunno, I kinda question how awesome they really are. Well, not so much how awesome they are I suppose, but how much awesomer they are than anyone else. Everyone is awesome, right?

Except for me, of course.

I'm evil.

LCE027 Just Getting Started

| | Comments (0)

"Just Getting Started" is an original song I wrote and recorded a year ago, as a bit of an homage to Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers.

As with my "Lines and Squares" video, despite the relatively professional sound quality, there's no lip synching here: I merely recorded the vocals and guitars (including the guitar solo) live into my music program as I recorded the video, and then mixed the audio all together and synched it up to the video. So what you see me doing is what you're hearing. No pretending!

LCE025 Strange Days

Strange Days, by The Swirling Eddies. When a lot of people are hatin' on each other -- such as in politics -- this song comes to my mind.

LCE024 You Forgot Ron Paul

| | Comments (0)

This is a song about how YOU FORGOT RON PAUL. Even if you didn't.

You Ron Paul fans asked for more lines about Ron Paul, so here it is. Be careful what you ask for next time.

See outtakes for this song at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fqYaxGiRk1I

Lyrics:

I saw you on the news last night
You were talkin bout all these dudes
And about how many people like them
And their fancy shoes
Well my guy ain't got shoes like theirs
He ain't wealthy, he ain't got great hair
But my guy loves liberty
He wants the best for you and me

Chorus:
You forgot Ron Paul
You did it again
You've hated him since I dont know when
You leave him out most every time
I cannot think of a worse crime
Oh, it is so plain to see
You hate democracy
You forgot Ron Paul

Ron Paul, he set a one day record
For raising funds
Ron Paul delivers babies
Gives smiles to everyone
He wins every online poll
And many straw polls too
Sure they don't mean a thing
But tell me, what other polls do

Chorus

I didn't hear the whole news story
I caught it in the middle
But I can only assume ...that

Chorus

GOP Debate Song (Live)

| | Comments (0)

This is a relatively untitled song about the upcoming GOP debate on YouTube.

Also see the music video version of this video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D4f28pO17Ug

Lyrics:

The Grand Old Party's looking for
Somebody who can lead
Someone who is electable
And adheres to our creed
Some say the group is not diverse
They're white, they're men, but wait
The Dems have just one candidate
Republicans have eight

Rudy's leading all the polls
But can he win the base?
Mitt changed on abortion
Hist'ry he can't erase
Ron Paul would end the FDA
And that is just a start
Fred has just begun to run
But sure does look the part

Hunter tells us what to do
In foreign policy debates
Huckabee's compassionate
And lost a lot of weight
Tancredo says let's build a fence
Across the whole southwest
McCain is loved by many
And hated by the rest

We don't know who we're voting for
We dont know who will win
That's why we use YouTube to ask
Our questions of these men
Time is short, we're voting soon
And I just thought I'd mention
If we don't reach consensus, then
We'll decide at convention

I really dislike listening to Tim McCarver, and as a Red Sox fan, I am excited about the ALCS, but also dreading it. AND THAT IS NOT HOW IT SHOULD BE. TIM.

LCE019 Lines and Squares / Colbert

| | Comments (0)

This is a song dedicated to the great champion of bear and wrist awareness, Stephen Colbert. The verses are by A. A. Milne.

Here's my own wrist injury, postop: http://www.flickr.com/photos/pudge/1440769501

The original MP3 of this song is available http://pudge.net/tunes/tracks/Lines%20and%20Squares.mp3

And no, I am not lip synching. I recorded the guitar and vocal into Logic while I recorded the video with QT Player, then mixed the audio and exported it out and brought it into iMovie. The spoken parts are the builtin laptop mic, and then I mixed the song, with the good mic recordings, in over that.

LCE018 I Am Gonna / Schrammie

| | Comments (0)

I wrote this song about a year or so ago. I added the second verse today, just for Ken Schram.

He took offense at my song "Osama Bin Laden, You Ruined My Birthday," and this song, "I Am Gonna," constitutes my acceptance speech. See his outrage here: http://www.komotv.com/news/9742937.html

LCE011 FREE BIRD

| | Comments (0)

The most-requested song so far was, of course, Free Bird, by Lynyrd Skynyrd. I took a slightly different approach to this one I played five different guitar parts, all live bass, clean electric, acoustic, slide, and solo.

It may not be the best one-man live version of Free Bird, but it may well be the most ... comprehensive.

To get different parts playing at the same time I used a BOSS RC-2 LoopStation pedal, and to play different guitars -- bass (which is a Firebird detuned an octave), acoustic, various electrics -- I use the Line 6 Variax modeling guitar, and to switch between the guitars and amp/fx I used the Line 6 PODxt Live. Oh, and that nifty slide I am using, that you can flip around to play chords, is the Axys slide by Shubb.

Free Bird was requested by Oliver Patrick Threshie, and neeracher. So BLAME THEM.

"It is the common fate of the indolent to see their rights become a prey to the active. The condition upon which God hath given liberty to man is eternal vigilance; which condition if he break, servitude is at once the consequence of his crime and the punishment of his guilt."
