I've found a couple Glastonbury clips from the MTV stream on youtube, amazing quality. I'm assuming MTVWorld took it down (and if they didn't, does anyone know a proxy server I can use? In the States, I can't view MTVWorld). I also found a really poor couple which said the Clint Eastwood was Snoop Dogg ft. Gorillaz XD Isn't it the other way around, guys? Anyway, I'll either finish hunting down clips (which I don't like because the clipping is up to the uploader, not the viewer) or see if I can get the full stream somewhere. If I do, I'll give up my annoyance at fandom and upload the whole thing cut and uncut. There are a few people who go out of their way to thank me and ask me if I could take the time for more but it's okay if I can't. Apparently youtube has the power to be the most polite place ever. So I'm going to consider this uploading for those guys, not the ones who are annoyances. :/

I have no idea what the fuck Snoop Dogg is rolling out because it's poor quality, but that may be because I spent the entire thing alternatively trying to puzzle out what the fuck he was wearing or wanting to stick a fez on him so his apparent cosplay of Russ would be complete. :P The whole thing was kind of weird, what with Damon brandishing his melodica in the air like it was a rifle and waving it around, and any sight of the thing (whether or not it was being played) sent the crowd into hysterics. Shit, dude, the melodica is getting respect now? ;.; I AM FINALLY NOT CONSIDERED A LAZY MUSICIAN PLAYING A BASTARD CHILD FOR IT BEING MY SPECIALITY SINCE I WAS 10? Aaaaaah omg.

Also at one point Jamie got in Snoop's face so close I'm sure his mic was on Snoop's nose, which, lol wtf?

seriously snoop wtf are you wearing ok are you going to make me have to tweet you asking why, why, why

Damon seems to have shed his usual concert gear (LOL NAAAKEEED) from the jeans and red shirt to a leather jacket, black shirt and black pants of some material. Also he looks like he stole Shaun Ryder's glasses. If he did, I approve of this measure.

---- why is gorillaz_news so quiet, wtffff?

Feel Good, INC, I am not sure what he's singing but it is not the concert or album version at all. I think it's Noodle's Demo cut down for time (which is very fitting) but I can't say for sure without a lyrics sheet, of which nobody has made. I'm making my own later. If so, it makes complete sense, the timing could not be more appropriate.

I like how the MC'ing is being handled this year, I hope that once they involve the fictional band members they'll put catchcalls back in. Considering the fact they had so little dates in the Demon Day tour because an MC fucked up so badly (basically, this guy verbally abused the audience and the band and it got bad enough that the concert hall refused to pay them and the rest of the tour canceled out. That's a huge reason of why we had Demon Detour instead), even this makes me happy. It's just a sort of general catch-all, anyone on stage can step in. It's very disorganized appearing but I'm sure Damon and Jamie have it meticulously planned out, because they never do things anyway else (even if they crash and burn in the process).

Guys. Guys. I got a tentative number for my music stipend from school. $3500 is the estimation. I need to plan what to do with this, both instrument and concert-wise. Anyone willing to help, please? :D I'm seeing Gorillaz at leat once in the States and in Mexico if I can manage it. I'll have a clarinet and melodica by then, so they don't figure in. Hrm...

More Glastonbury thoughts as I get ahold of the videos. Right now, all I know is that it needs to be October right now.
(is she real, is she real)

O green world,
Don't desert me now
Bring me back to fallen town
Where someone is still alive

You're on your own (when you begin)
To sing a song (that doesn't sing)
And it grows (hey, you know)

And they're turning us into monsters
Turning us into fire
Turning us into monsters
It's all desire (it's all desire)

Fighting for something new in this (is she real, is she real)
When no one needs the heart of me and I'll
Get out somewhere other than me before...

(is she real, is she real)

Got off the plane to the country sound (without the truth to the eyes)
I drove to the mountain and a hole in the ground (hiding out in holes)
There was crack on the corner and someone dead (is she real, is she real)
and fire coming out of the monkey's head

Put me in a cab to suburbia (snatch a piece of my wondering)
I just took a line but it wasn't with you (it's my mistake, i'll make it)
There was more of it there, when I got back home (i just took a line)
But you had left me, you don't know my soul... (is she real, is she real)

I saw that day, (something's starting today)
Lost my mind (where did he go?)
Lord, I'm fine (where you wanted to be)
Maybe in time (you know, november has come)
You'll want to be mine (is she real, is she real)

Something's starting today
Where did he go? why you wanted to be?
Well you know, november has come
When it's gone away..

In these demon days (it's so cold inside)
So hard for a good soul to survive (is she real, is she real)
You can't even trust the air you breathe (because mother earth wants us all to leave)

Dreams aren't bad,
I had turned back
I love the girl (is she real, is she real)
But God only knows it's
Getting hard to see the sun coming through
I love you...
But what are we going to do?

Sinking soul
There you are
Doesn't make side to
But it won't be long
Cause kids with guns
Kids with guns
Easy does it, easy does it, they got something to say no to

Picture I'm a dreamer
I'll take you deeper
Down to the sleepy glow
Time is a low..
Don't you know?
What are we going to do?

And they're turning us into monsters
Turning us into fire
Turning us into monsters
It's all desire

When you go back
All the second selfless days
You're in love with him
I want to see you again
I love you...
But what are we going to do?

So pick yourself up, it's a brand new day
So turn yourself round
Don't burn yourself, turn youself
Turn yourself around
To the sun!

my huge gorillaz project before i move to other things. the goal is to manage to mix every single song on demon day (excluding d-sides) into one megamix.

the template is hardly finished and a lot will change, but suggestion would still be awesome

this is even trickier since they made their own sampler, but that one's simple cut and paste, i want to josh this all into one song.
Started out considering Deltron vs Gorillaz.

Drafting a timeline, not editing anything at all:

Went back in and dumped most the tracks, cut it for the idea it wanted to be anyway, which was a mix of Kids with Guns and Fire Coming Out Of A Monkey's Head. Now it's basically a completely different project altogether. Funny how that works sometimes.

Cutting it down to the quick, new draft, simple transitions, sound manipulation:

Next, I get to go in and decide whether it speaks for itself, or if it needs some fanciful embellishments.

creative processes are fun?
Hm. Must try out a premium account for this journal sometime in the future.
I started fucking around with this awhile ago, but it just wasn't working. Up to 1:12 only needs some volume envelopes balanced. The rest has 30 second spots that I am satisfied with sparsed between 'well, THAT is a rough draft'. Really, I should stop being annoyed at myself because this was my second serious attempt at a project. Still. When something isn't working, you get down to the basics.

The problem with what I did instead is that each half by itself is what I wanted, but apparently I developed an entirely different idea today as to how I wanted to do it than last night. But I had fun with it, it just needs some sore spots smoothed over before it can be finished.

Suggestions for either, comments, would be awesome. :D <3

I think it may all be in the draft. The problem with the first is I just made it up as I went along. The second had a template that was only vagually followed in the end, but it still helped a lot.

Maybe I'll tear out all the crap in the Black Parade mix then write a template. I guess that'll work.
MCR/Black Parade megamix! 75% done, need to fix some transitions/bad volume spots. Constructive criticism would be awesome. :D Acid Pro fucked up all the rendering and ruined a lot of stuff. If you heard it already THAT'S NOT WHAT IT'S SUPPOSED TO SOUND LIKE D:

I will fix this later.

Put to task:

(gorillaz)Money for the Free-> 50%
(mcr/black parade)Dancing Bones-> 65%
(shiny toy guns)Mall Rescue 101-> 5%
(various)Pop Star Battle Arena-> 25%
Last night's experiment was as thus: write lyrics as they come through, things around you, words that pop up suddenly (even quotations) and make them all fit together with as little editing as possible.

I've been screwing around with Sonic Acid Pro 4.0. Yesterday I created what I think the inside of (milliways)Kaworu's head sounds like. Today I started to work seriously on my first project. I'm doing another with Shiny Toy Guns, but that one's far from posting, yeah :)

No name yet, but here it is. It's only a template right now - any blank spot or odd transitions are going to be adjusted later. I'm replacing Sound Check (Gravity) with Demon Detour: El Mañana. Might twist a bit of another Demon Detour live, 'Clint Eastwood (Live - feat. De La Soul & Bootie Brown)' and a mic soldier riff. We'll see what happens, eh?

The template is basic, but hopefully I can make it sound good.
playing around with different ways of presenting lyrics and what is intended for the beat.

tomorrow's in mono ; tomorrow is not today ; so bless your beating heart...
this was always you ; with your soul in time ; bringing the rhythm to the beat ;
put your heart in what you make ; put your soul in what you use ;
and forever hold onto ; the nature of it all ;
raindrops pattering on the ground ; tomorrow's in mono ; tomorrow is not today


rollin' with the feedback of sound
