This is going to be a fun project to watch. My Friend Wallis is pushing the limits and posting new songs/sounds every day this year. Reminds me of a similar project by the composer R. Luke Dubois. He wrote a must-read article on his compositional process in the New York Times.
I am attempting to record and post a song or sound or idea each and every single day for all of 2011. I’d like to point out that I am unsure of my capability to actually follow through with this, but I am going to try my best! And, if I miss a day I am still going to continue on posting. haha. okay here we go! first sound of the year.
please spread the word!
Among the unfathomable multitude of things I did not know at the time is that a “friend with benefits” is like a unicorn that shits cupcakes—fun to imagine, but not actually real.
The authorities do not know exactly how many people have been killed warbling “My Way” in karaoke bars over the years in the Philippines, or how many fatal fights it has fueled. But the news media have recorded at least half a dozen victims in the past decade and includes them in a subcategory of crime dubbed the “My Way Killings.”
Karaoke-related killings are not limited to the Philippines. In the past two years alone, a Malaysian man was fatally stabbed for hogging the microphone at a bar and a Thai man killed eight of his neighbors in a rage after they sang John Denver’s “Take Me Home, Country Roads.
The riots also shone a bright light on a side of the country rarely seen in tourist itineraries. On Sunday, the authorities began bulldozing the makeshift encampments outside Rosarno where hundreds of immigrants live in what human rights groups describe as subhuman conditions. They are often paid less than $30 a day picking fruit, a job that many Italians see as beneath them.
