Things That Collide

While working on the problem of cool black-and-white GIFs I was also doing the usual on-the-bus composition, this time with a kind of restriction in trying to mash together songs without effects or playing with pitches. That's a bullshit rule, but so's a rhyme scheme, jerks!



Given the songs I was playing with, some business about a birthday had to happen, and coincidentally today is The Lovely Daughter's birthday, so I suppose this auditory and visual failure is for her. She will pay zero attention to it, but pointless effort is what being a parent is all about.

Sources:

50 Cent
Raymond Scott
Jurassic 5
Tenacious D
The Kinks
T'Pau
Silkk the Shocker
Andrew W.K.
Solvent
Penguin Cafe Orchestra.
Some country song I'll figure out later Lefty Frizzell, Lost Love Blues, but no YouTube so here.

I wouldn't characterize this as a failure- it's certainly interesting auditorily. I think you're daughter will be amused by it.

Gotta love Raymond Scott.

A Happy belated Birfday to the Lovely Little McGravitas!


And Iiked the song but I guess I was hoping for funkier or rappier when you told me you were using that one tune

Sadly, I am not funky. It takes a real effort to think about syncopation rather than just hitting the one and the three right on time.

No, it's good that you shower!

I have to agree with vs in this instance.

Furthermore, Happy Birthday, Mini-McGravitas!

I hope the Lovely daughter had a lovely day.

The sooner one's children realise that their birthdays are not about them, the happier everyone is.

Hmm, not yet true. One present has been noted as "kind of disappointing but that's okay."

I'd like to say "It gets better", but that seems to be the human condition, nicely summed up.

A belated happy birthday to the Lovely Daughter as well.
