it's a cold winter isn't it? I'm not sure but I think blandis dies at the end and the angels carry him home.

icy cold buildout blandis

blandis livin out time today in a cardboard box he makes a way
thinkin bout addin on another wing that is when he thinks about any thing

icy cold buildout blandis

blandis built out you should see his box got doors and winders but no locks
it's down on forty second street now he's off lookin for something to eat

icy cold buildout blandis

it's cold it's cold o to be warm o to have shelter from the storm
it's old it's old and it's just a box got doors and winders but no locks
time time livin today only find can make a way
a wing a wing a mansion of brown there in the middle of a freezin town

cold schizobox blandis
appropriate perpetual momentum, like a tumbleweed full of tinsel, this song sparkles in a disturbing way, not just describing blandis, but sticking blandis INTO our brain for a bit there. Compassion and despair.

exactly
blandis is schizo you got it ;-) you must have majored in psych I only minored! sparkling and disturbing and sometimes a little compassion is really all we can give.

well
the rpm challenge cd I'm supposed to mail off I don't think I'm going to make it. this is pretty much the only song I've got. supposed to have 35 minutes of music I still need 30:18 more. oh well if this is all I get done I'm pretty happy ;-) I actually like this song wrote it in 5 minutes.

I love the lyric which was delivered with a very cool vocal and harmonies. Nice mix and production. I love the Magical Mystery Tour type build toward the end.

you know
this was pretty much my first real song done totally in logic express ;-) LE makes it real easy with the presets. I ditched the FireWire interface and went back to my mixer which I'm used to -- I like being able to dial in eq and >gasp< put effects on my vocals as I record -- blasphemy! well it's what I'm used to. with my tragically awful voice I at least need to monitor I couldnt figure out how to get levels with FireWire. all in all this song came from the ether I really don't know how it happened! thanks for dropping in :-)

hey tim I appreciate it :-) if music is like an aptitude test this is like the best I can do right now. logic express is pretty awesome ;-) maybe it's psychological like getting new golf clubs or something I still couldn't golf even with good clubs but I swear I'm better lol

Sad but Fun
One of those makes you feel good songs and then you start paying attention to the lyrics. Now that's art. Entertain us and shame us at the same time. Cool!

Gee,
I wouldn't think this is reggae but I suppose nothing else comes close. Clever and purposeful lyrics teem with calliope or squeeze box music to make a strangely charming song. Damned unique. Thanks.

dimm witness said 2398 days ago (March 2nd, 2011)
hi bryn ;-)
yes it's the featured song. I spent the most time on it -- 7 hours. I spent like 25 hours on the whole thing so you can imagine how much "better" this is than the other songs. :-) I think there's only 3 songs that even have vocals, the rest are pretty much instrumental filler :-0 just didn't have time for the RPM challenge this year ;( -- Len Gold is another artist I've never heard of - I'll check him out!

thanks papag
I spent 3 hours recording and 4 hours mixing this -- I am happy with how it came out and proud of this work. very, very rare ;-0 for whatever reason I can't do this very often. hit or miss! had a chorus, wrote the verses and ending part in 5 minutes. weird how it came together
