It’s a DS106 World

DS106_4LifeNanalou and I had a visit with the Burgeron Memory Mirror this week and what a treat.  @Cogdog and @Cris2B and I had evidentally created a fun parody of Mad World by Gary Jules during our lost week last summer.  With the help of a shared Google Doc Alan (aka @Cogdog) and Cris wrote new lyrics, and I sang the new song while accompanying myself on the 12-string guitar. Without a sound studio we had improvised using GarageBand on the iPad recording separate tracks adding some cool effects: dreamy vocals, large room guitar 1 and small room guitar 2.  The final sound editing and mixing were completed much easier by e-mailing the separate tracks to Nanalou’s computer where she keeps and old copy of GarageBand 6.0.5. The editing capabilities on the iPad version of GarageBand are pretty dismal.

When we checked Soundcloud we discovered two versions of the song:  An earlier draft with only Cris’s lyrics– sung twice for some odd reason.  (That Burgeron Backwoods Brew strikes again?)  Then a final version with both Cris’s and Cogdog’s lyrics. Through a misty fog and a lot of static we think the memory mirror was trying to show us something about a music video that was created to go with the parody, but we couldn’t find it. Maybe another Burgeron family member has seen it?  Well… you can at least listen to the audio version.

UPDATE: June 20, 2015 – In the #DS106 world you never know what will happen with the art you create.  Maybe nobody says anything, or maybe someone will riff on it and create something new. In this case Ron Leunissen was inspired to add keyboard and strings to the audio track.  It is beautiful.  Thank you Ron.

 


It’s a #DS106 World
by Rochelle Lockridge, @Cris2B, @Cogdog

Making art damn it keeps me sane
clears my mind, revs my brain
to create is better than champagne
makes me happy, makes me happy

There’s a freedom when you open up
Fill your cup, fill your cup
Ride the tension to a new creation
Live your vision, Live your vision

And I find it really funny, I find it really grand
to share my stuff with others makes my world expand
And some call it community, or maybe family
People creating art together, it’s a very very
DS106 World… DS106 World…

In front of me are familiar tweets
Blog updates, down under mates
Bright and early for the Daily Create
Making art, making art

Dancing Jim is filling up their GIFs
No layer masks, no layer masks
Going headless, don’t wanna do my work
Boss is a jerk, boss is a jerk

And I find it kind of funny, I find it kind of mad
The dreams in which I’m clone brushing are the best I’ve ever had
I find it hard to tell you, I find it hard to take
When people share in circles it’s a very, very
DS106 World…  DS106 World…

Bloggers waiting for the moment they get pings
Read your post, loved your remix
And I feel the way when Kernohan sings
Sit and listen, sit and listen

Went to school and I was very nauseous
No one knew my blog, nor my soundcloud
Hello Assignment Bank, where’s my example?
Tagged right to me, tagged right through me

And I find it kind of funny, I find it kind of mad
The dreams in which I’m clone brushing are the best I’ve ever had
I find it hard to tell you, I find it hard to take
When people share in circles it’s a very, very
DS106 World… DS106 World…  DS106 World…  DS106 World…
