Typing What I’m Thinking To Everyone Reading

DOWNLOAD SONG HERE>>>>Typing What I’m Thinking To Everyone Reading

Even though this is another Twitter song, unlike Tweetaholic it’s not comedy, and I feel it represents what I can do as a musician/producer better than the quick comedic knock-offs you might have heard. It’s also using an “insider’s view” lyrical device , so the people who appreciate the history of twitter will really get it, but your average listener? I don’t know.

Actually I think it is as much about the four founders of Twitter (for some reason my hands really wanted to type “Founding Fathers” there. Weird, I know.):

Jack Dorsey

Noah Glass

Biz Stone

Evan Williams

Anyway here are the lyrics:

Typing What I’m Thinking To Everyone Reading

Do you know Jack?
Do you know Noah?
Do you know Biz?
Do you know Evan?

Odeodeodeo it’s obvious…it’s obvious
Odeodeodeo it’s obvious…it’s obvious

Don’t tell me what you’re having for dinner
’cause I don’t care
Don’t tell me that you’re bored so bored because I’m
I’m already there

Typing What I’m Thinking To Everyone Reading
It is stranger than fiction it is everywhere…it’s everywhere

Shakespeare would tweet about love and death and kings
Freud would blame your mom for everything
It’s obvious…it’s obvious

Edison would ask you if you have seen the light
Timothy Leary would say it’s out of sight
It’s obvious…it’s obvious

Don’t tell me what you’re having for dinner
’cause I don’t care
Don’t tell me that you’re bored so bored because I’m
I’m already there

Typing What I’m Thinking To Everyone Reading
It is stranger than fiction it is everywhere…it’s everywhere

Here’s the wikipedia about Twitter for more info about our “Founding Fathers”.
* I have also heard from reliable sources [citation needed] that they occasionally get together and drink loads of Pan-Galactic Gargle Blasters: here is the recipe for that improbable drink:

“Take the juice from one bottle of that Ol’ Janx Spirit.
Pour into it one measure of water from the seas of Santraginus V
Allow three cubes of Arcturan Mega-gin to melt into the mixture (it must be properly iced or the benzene is lost).
Allow four litres of Fallian marsh gas to bubble through it (in memory of all those happy Hikers who have died of pleasure in the Marshes of Fallia).
Over the back of a silver spoon float a measure of Qualactin Hypermint extract, redolent of all the heady odours of the dark Qualactin Zones.
Drop in the tooth of an Algolian Suntiger. Watch it dissolve, spreading the fires of the Algolian suns deep into the heart of the drink.
Sprinkle Zamphour.
Add an olive.
Drink…but very carefully.”

UPDATE: Today’s XKCD is TOO appropriate – it’s like I’m psychically connected to events and peoples today wtf (cue theme to twilight zone…now.)

P.S. Thanks Chris Pirillo for tweeting about it, it’s already been downloaded over 1000 times (in 6 hours!) and is #2 on Tweetmeme (audio)

Obama Song: America is a place where all things are possible

I took voice snippets of Obama from his audio book and speeches and put together this song:

I hope nobody takes this the wrong way – I think Barack Obama is the best thing to ever happen for the U.S.A.

Barack Rocks!
BARACK ROCKS!!!!

Computer Go Bung REMIX

My friend Paul and I did this a long time ago, but it never really caught on. Then I boosted the vocals and basically did a complete remix, and now it seems to be having a resurgence in popularity :)

Dam it feels good to be a gangsta! (BTW, this video doesn’t have anything to do with PC Go Bung, it’s just funny and represents PC frustration, represent. Vista suxors vexat, unless it is the Vista Cruiser.)

Gnomedex Theme Songs for Chris Pirillo

Every year, Chris Pirillo hosts Gnomedex, a technology conference tailored to technology and blogging enthusiasts. Quite a while back, when podcasting was the new hip thing, I asked him if he needed a theme song for his podcasts, and if he would be interested in having me try to make him something. So he said to send him something, and if he liked it he might use it.

Well, he loved it (yay) and I kind of forgot about it until the other day, when I started following him on twitter, and I thought, “hmmmm, I wonder if he needs music for Gnomedex?” and he said to send him something and if he liked it he might use it.

So I knocked out these 2 songs about Gnomedex:

  • The first song was kind of inspired by two things: Bob Marleys birthday (February 6th) and the movie Goundhogs Day – I’m kind of visualizing somebody waking up and repeating a day over and over, and everyday he’s at Gnomedex – only unlike the movie it’s a GOOD thing:
    Gnomedex
  • The second song is more technogeek in nature, and needs no interpretation :) :
    Gnomedex II
  • I noticed, however, when compared to the podcast theme song I did for him a long time ago that they are all very dissimilar, which may be a good thing, I’ll just have to see what he thinks.

    BTW, here is the old theme song:

    Here is a photograph of the LockerGnome himself – thanks for all your support Chris!
    Do you need some help? Do you need a hand? Something to understand: Pirillo is The Man!

    WordPress Redemption Song Plugin

    Bob Marley’s birthday was February 6th, and I spent the morning working and listening to Uprising, and thinking about my own mortality which I frequently find myself doing when I listen to Bob Marley, especially his last album (they say he knew he was sick during the making of Uprising, and it is painfully obvious to me, anyway).
    Old pirates yes they rob I
    Then I thought to myself, “wouldn’t it be cool if, instead of the lyrics to Hello, Dolly, my WordPress dashboard displayed the Redemption Song lyrics?”

    So I hax0red Matt Mullenweg’s Hello, Dolly plugin all up and shizzit and decided to post it (after all, I had already changed the CSS to position it properly with WordPress 2.7, and changed the text from red to light blue), so here it is:

    redemption.phps

    Installation and Implementation:

    1. Place the redemption.phps file into your /wp-content/plugins/ directory.
    2. Change the file extension from “.phps” to “.php”.
    3. Activate the plugin from the WordPress admin panel.

    [Matt, besides being the co-creator of WordPress at the age of 19, is a pretty amazing guy for a number of other reasons: In March 2007 he was named #16 of the 50 Most Important People on the Web by PC World, reportedly the youngest on the list.

    In October 2007 Mullenweg acquired the Gravatar service and was rumored to have turned down a $200 million offer to buy his company Automattic – Jesus Christ the guy is 25 years old.]
