I went too, too, too. [echo]

Another video from the 5th of May.

I know in the last video post I said I'd upload another video "tomorrow" - And then that never happened, and the first 5th of May video went away.

There were some technical issues with the new video editing/hosting site.
Everything seems to be ironed out now.
Just know, I've tried to upload this video everyday since the 6th.

Only a week late.

The song above is a newer song we're still working on. I wrote it sometime last year, and it has yet to have a decent recording made of it, or does it show up on any album.
Right now it's called "I went too."

The video has our first attempt with us pixelated out.
[don't know if pixelated is a real word]
Then our first and only start to finish run through.
You may have noticed some edits in the middle of the video also... It's because we played some things for just much too long. Both of us were just trying to get a feeling for what should be going on in the song.

But on the bright side:
We do have a vision in mind for how this song will be eventually:

Start with this bouncy/upbeat thing, throw a few verses in.
Hit the pre-chorus, which is kind of punk/dance rock for like 3 bars.
Back to bouncy/up-beat thing, but have some strange improv over top that kind of deconstructs the song.
Back to pre-chorus, then real chorus, and some noodling then done.

Have the day off today, so I might work on it a bit more.

Maybe one more video from the May 5th to come in the near future.
Maybe not.

Not making anymore promises.

Cough Drop pt 1

Danny and I sat down and ironed out a couple of songs today...
Thinking I'll upload just one for today, and then maybe one tomorrow, and one the day after.
[If I remember]

Here is an oldie called "Cough Drop" - I think this is our 2nd, or 3rd run through. First time we made it to the end of the song with out totally stopping.

[NOTE: Just noticed on Danny's computer that his browser shows only half the video. If you're having this issue and you use a PC you can right click the video and full screen it. If you're using a mac, you're on your own.]

Videos will look like this now, which (if you even care) is different from the previous videos.

I had to get some new webcam software and a new video editing program. I kind of like this new was better.
Just copy and paste the embed and I'm done.
No more waiting for blogger to upload shit.

And, if you watched the video til the end you may have noticed there are cool effects and transition and cuts we can use now.
(Get ready for some sweet/awful videos!)

Keep your eyes and ears to the internet this week.
More neat stuff is coming.
