Singing Lessons - Week 2


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
Last night was my second singing lesson. While we were starting our lesson at Linda's house, the door bell rang, the dog barked, a realtor brought a young family from Ohio in to see the house. The dad looked at me as I sang, "La La La La La La La" and I looked at him and said, "I don't know the words"

Now it seems to me that this extended furry family from Ohio has a tendency to get riled and irritable in given situations. I hope the dog did not get to point of leaving a puddle on the floor.

Bob, you have such a wicked sense of humor. way to funny and yet, thought provoking.

Soooo Serious
I kinda crack myself up when I do something like list my hardware. It's kinda like writing your acceptance speech for an award you were never even eligible for!

That's me!

Bob , you rule.
When you get all of nature singing along, you're definitely on the right track. When I saw you were taking lessons I was a little worried you'd end up sounding like Jim Neighbors, but I'm resting easy now that I can see your immutable style is intact. Amazing progress is being made. Regards

Jim Neighbors' Neighborhood
At first I thought the explosive drums would be plenty disruptive, but they actually made the song work better, which wasn't what I intended. Then I thought, dog barking and it was all down hill from there. Ahh a peak into the mind of a genius.....

You know I wouldn't think of letting you down Matt! I consider myself that last fiber of hope for all of mankind. I'm all that's left to cling to. Do you really want hope for mankind? I'm your man, and I've just powered up the robots and sent them on a mission to destroy.

La
The lyric portrays the inner disquiet of our collective souls as civilization slowly decays into a post-industrial landscape of farm animals and emotionally dissociated drumming. The sound achieves a heightened sense of our world as it comes to a grinding halt as all things in this universe are re-made as movies in LA, thus enabling the discombobulation of society itself. This thesis is achieved through the poignant use of the word 'la' in a repetitive fashion, thus guarantees us a profound sonic satisfaction.

PS, I laughed out loud. :)

The song so good you fav'd yourself 3 times. Confidence is very sexy, don't you think? :)

I'll be very disappointed to hear "My Beautiful Crutch" in your Michael Crawford voice. But I'm just being selfish, I guess. In all seriousness, these are fun. Are the animals eating each other like on Sgt Peppers?

My Beautiful Crutch
Don't worry about that tune - it's safe. It might be my own personal favorite, btw. It's one of the tunes that I actually play and sing when I have my bass in my hand. That and my egobandit song (with Micael2's added "YEAH!"). Most of the time I try to write something new, never trying to learn what I've already written. What's wrong with this picture? Is anyone else like that? Write songs but never learn how to perform them? Looks like a forum post is coming....

Michael Crawford. You are one funny fella.

Uh ha hah..
please stop! Laughing makes me start coughing all over again. There is such an existential irony afoot here, that is, until the sheep steps in. You lyrics are to die for as they are contemporary and pertinent and socially significant. You crack me up, Bob. Faving yourself three times is icing on the urinal cake. LOL. Thanks. I feel a little less sick now.

Dr Extra Arms -
Stick out your tongue and say Arrrgggghhhhh!

I never know what people will think when I do things like this, so it is a great feeling when I see someone like yourself "get it".

And you are one funny cracker - Icing on the urinal cake! That's tasty!

I hope you're feeling better and thanks for the laughs. I feel a little less sick now too!

Barking Drums
You know, I set myself up for a challenge when I decided to document 4 weeks of singing lessons. What was I thinking?

Oh well, with my don't give up yet attitude, I decided to recreate (and exaggerate) my singing environment by using explosive drums and disruptive sounds between the la la's to further irritate the listener.

The drums were basically Jam Pack 3 loops, slightly modified to fit my artistic needs.

Thanks for checking it out!

Thought provoking...
lyrics. I see that Dave (lavalamp) heard something regarding Los Angeles in the lyrics. I was thinking Louisiana. I also found the hidden message you put in this when played backwards- something about Sweet Home "aL"abama.

Dude, this is great! I'm jealous of you taking lessons (wish I had the time to try it). Love your sense of humor Bob!

LA - Lutz Area
If you've been to Tampa, and I know you have, you've scratched your head when you saw the road sign that designates LUTZ.

Mike, you'll never have time for singing lessons. Have your wife get you classes and make you go. That's how I'm doing it!

Singing Lessons Week 3 - Duet With Cessna Mustang
I typically improvise with everything I do artistically, so I can't plan what will happen next week. I just hope a plane crashes through the roof or something fun like that. I also hope that the survivors are supportive in my efforts.

(I'm going to take your last comment as a compliment, but I wonder what the underlying meaning really is....)

Funny how we're all drawn to each other....

My 5 year old is my screaming girl fan. I'm going to attempt to video tape her expressive dance moves that she does when certain songs of mine play.

I'm a very lucky man to have passed on that "nut" gene to both of my kids. The next generation of MacJammers will probably inherit them!

Bob, The Sony MDR-7506's are the only headphones I would dare to do a mix in. They are excellent. I am on my 3rd pair. (they didn't used to sell replacement earpads-so you had to trash them when they disintegrated--but now they do) Your listeners and mixes will love you for it....
