The website isn't down anymore! In fact it's better than ever!!!! Unlimited storage and unlimited data transfer. I don't know why yahoo would promise such a thing. What if I created an incredibly popular website like digg or something and decided to post a bunch of massive 40 gb files to the homepage which I encouraged everyone to download? Or what if youtube signed up for yahoo's hosting? They'd need to buy warehouses of servers just to keep the site running. Very odd, but I won't complain.
Please go download my entire music page. Here's a firefox plugin to help you download every mp3 on the page at once!
"weekly-song" 20 is HAPPYLAND. A song made for a video I mentored the production of at Lighthouse studio. I helped do a lot of the animation of mainly the red guy, Tom. And I am the live action guy at the opening. ENJOY THE MP3, AND VIDEO. This is the only time I've ever tried to use a pitch corrector and I think it turned out pretty awesome!
Today's release is a cover of one of the songs from the Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind soundtrack. It's different from my other tracks in that it doesn't ever jump into a techno dance party adventure! (It was very hard to do, I even made a techno version on the side, just to ease my brain)
YES! Two new songs within 1 hour, I'M ON A ROLL TODAY! This one is much longer and more complete than the last one. It is a remix of the "I got no strings" song from the Disney movie Pinocchio. It also includes me singing at one part! (vocoded of course) I very much enjoy to hear the vocoder-only versions of songs which have vocoders, so here is that part of mine (without instrumental): http://keaton-world.com/music/pinnoK_vocode_only.mp3
DOWNLOAD THE SONG AND LISTEN TO IT, AND DON'T LET DISNEY SUE ME CUZ I PROBABLY WOULDN'T BE ABLE TO PAY THEM FOR THE DAMAGES INFRINGED AGAINST THEM!!
What week am I supposed to be on? ARGH!!!@#!#@ I am REALLY getting behind now. And to make up for it all, I present you with a 30 second song. YES, 30 seconds. The project file is rather convoluted so I assume I'll never go back to trying to extending it, BUT who knows!
Just think of this 30 second song as one of those short intermediate tracks you find on a CD that isn't really a song, but is usually just the band saying something or a strange sound clip.
This song will be released soon! Also, thank you tonsss to the few of you who donated. It's fun to keep my website only borderline self-sufficient. Ironically, a lot of the money donated went toward being able to have the donate button.
also, this seems like one of those songs that I will randomly come across on youtube later, so this seems like a semi-good place to say: you may use my songs for videos as long as you're not making money, and you clearly credit me for the music with a link to my website (www.keaton-world.com).
Here are some of my most recent youtube videos I haven't mentioned in my blog (ones that haven't been pointlessly removed!!). Also, I will dig up some sort of weekly song to release by (hopefully) Monday!
First of all, happy anniversary to this blog which I started exactly 1 year ago today!
Now onto the Weekly-Song.
I started this one to celebrate the beginning of Summer 2008! Unfortunately, it took me 9 or 10 months to get around to finishing this. I released a semi-finished version on newgrounds in November, where it seems to have been well received. That's also where it got the title "summerX" rather than just "summer" because that title had already been taken. I particularly like this track, I HOPE YOU DO TOO!
I released a song for YTMND, about YTMND comments. It's called "prairiedogeric10 reads comments (fun times mix)". If you'd like to be a wonderful person, you can purchase it for 99 cent on my music page. It's certainly not the greatest track you're ever going to hear from me, but think of it as my retarded gift to you, for a very generous dollar donation (which I really will appreciate). I plan on selling more appealing songs in the future, but for right now, I'd like to give out all my favorite stuff for free.
I try to get these released on the weekends, BUT IT'S MONDAY!!
This week I'm releasing an MP3 composed of two remixes of the same song. They are both short remixes of "We Interrupt This Programme" by Coburn. I made them both at some point for YTMND, and have now combined them into one incredible 2 minute MP3!!!! Funtastic Power! - NEDM Ragtime / Dance (remix of Coburn)
I am much too addicted to the chords from Muse's New Born to not use them again. Here is another song I threw together in the past hour using those chords. I really like how it is sounding so it might become a full song eventually! It is rightly titled "Too Addicted".
I first started making this song in late 2007, to release as the one year anniversary song for Funtastic Power! on January 7th, 2008. Now, the 2nd year anniversary has passed, and I'm not releasing it until today!!! If you're a stalkerish fan-boy or sexy fan-girl you will recognize this song because I have put it on at least one surprisingly high rated (and high viewed) YTMND and released an almost finished version on last.fm.
The song is still called Anniversary, and is still celebrating the ONE year anniversary of Funtastic Power! from over a year ago. Ah, how far I have come from the release of those first few songs. I don't actually remember which songs were the first songs. I know "Level 1" is supposed to be the first one, and apparently, according to my ancient news post, there were 10 released on the first day. NICE
I promise that I have a lot of releases queued up that are not just more completed versions of songs I've had done for, literally, years. I just continue to hold off on my favorite songs I'm working on because I feel like they have a lot of potential to be even better!! The Muse one from last week is one of the good ones though. Go back and listen to it, if you haven't already!
Wow, releasing these things once a week really makes me realize how quickly time passes by. It's unbelievable that we are on week 6 of this year already.
As with the Wroclai song, I am once again torn on how to label this song. The repeating chords of the song are based on the opening to Muse's song "New Born." Other than that, none of the melodies, style, or lack of lyrics are similar to that song at all. I will label this as an ADAPTATION OF MUSE.
I have been working on this since October. It is much longer than songs I usually make, and I think it turned out awesome! I especially like the orchestrated part at 2:39. Funtastic Power! - n00born (adaptation of Muse) DOWNLOAD, LISTEN, ENJOY!
This week's weekly-weelease can now be weeleased because it's the weekend, however, I alweady weeleased it earlier in the week (on weendesday).
It's the remix of "I want to be like you" from the movie The Jungle Book. I released it on a youtube video on wednesday, but the mp3 on my site is longer and better! And yes you're hearing right, I edited it to sound like King Louie is dropping the F bomb at the beginning of the song. So I released a clean version in addition to the normal one.
If you've heard Mount Wroclai (Idle Days) by Beirut you may recognize the repeating chords in this week's song. Feedrosie transposed those chords and asked me to do something cool with it a long time ago.
I've been practically 100% done with this since the day he asked me to make it (more than a year ago), but just never released it anywhere. One reason is because I can't quite figure out what to tag it as. I want to credit Beirut for the chords, but chords are recycled all the time by artists and no one ever gives credit to the 1st person to use them. In my defense, my version doesn't sound anything like the original, and I made up all of the melodies myself. I also want to credit Feedrosie for discovering the right notes to play, because the song wouldn't exist without those.
