Not really going to delete the account. I like to be able to comment on others' LJs. So the account is staying. Nyah.

Moved Again [Mar. 10th, 2006|11:54 am]
Adam N. Copeland
Can't stand LJ, nor wordpress.com. Both give me hives because of the lack of control over the interface. So, I've moved again:

bitphonic.com



It's permanent this time, I swear. I'm giving this account here a couple more weeks, then I'm going to delete it.

LJ out, Wordpress.com in [Jan. 31st, 2006|03:22 pm]

I'm leaving LiveJournal for Wordpress.com

I know I just started posting here again, but I'm already tired of LJ's interface: enough to keep me from posting on certain days.

Here's the link:

copelanda.wordpress.com

Not hard to remember, I hope.

All two of you who are subscribed to my feedburner feed, I'll be switching that over too, so it should be seamless.

Cheers

What's up? [Jan. 31st, 2006|10:22 am]
Adam N. Copeland
Not much. Thanks for asking. Oh shit - talking to myself again.

Bought myself a guitar for the first time in three years last night. It looks something like this, except with a black pickguard and headstock:



In fact, I can't seem to find a picture anywhere of my particular model in red with the black accoutrements. I bought it used, so I wonder if they are a custom job.

Anyway, I got it for $215, it's a Jay Turser JT-133, basically a rather high-quality chinese copy of the Gibson ES335. Has a nice rich deep tone in with the switch pulled towards you and crispy clear ringy tones when pushed away. Sounded better than the equivalent Ibanez Artcore model, felt heavier and more substantial, had better fret dressings and intonation. Bright translucent red. Two big shiny humbuckers.

I went to Guitar Center with the intention of trying out a Squier '51. Total shit. Sharp fret edges, lots of buzzing, cheap materials, really crummy tuners, awful intonation out of the box: tune the open low E correctly and at the 12th fret it was an Eb. Too bad because the pickups sounded pretty good.

Observations [Jan. 17th, 2006|08:43 pm]

Today I scraped some ice and snow off the ground outside, cleaned up some dog pee, cleaned dishes, and wrote on various websites. I will not write about my job on this blog. When I die, this page will probably still be here.

Afrobeat slams into Dreamy: [Jan. 17th, 2006|08:05 pm]
Adam N. Copeland
Tried to work out a couple of ideas (smashing something dreamy into afrobeat) onto a recording tonight and finally stopped when I realized that I was working in the same scale as fifty of our other songs or so. Billy says it's okay. Oddly enough, he also had the urge in his pants to do something afrobeat too. Weird...

Garfield Randomizer [Jan. 10th, 2006|05:26 pm]

Further proof that absolutely nothing of consequence ever happened in Sunday Comics is the gleefully bizarre Garfield Randomizer. Some really surreal results occur. This is my favorite so far, as I think it fully captures the spirit of the comic:

Scatter [Jan. 7th, 2006|01:48 pm]
Adam N. Copeland
The Meltdowns have been discussing a concept for a song for a little while: something inspired by group chanting in afrobeat and capoeria music, where the bridge of the song involves a lead by the MC and a single thing chanted back in response by the rest of the group, preferably with something funky going on. I sat down last night and just began writing the first thing that came to me. The first few things that came to me either weren't so great or lead me to a creative dead end. Then all of this came out. Yes, that is an "uhn!" in there, and no it doesn't really have a traditional chorus in that it's not the same each time. This may work with a piece of existing music we're working on...?

The buildings have ears
The lights have eyes

[chorus]
They're bending in
They're bending in to the street
They're bending in
They're bending in to the street

That's a new one
Gotta learn it
Face down
and gliding by
That's the only move
to get me out of town

You've got the word out
But we're all coming out

[chorus]
We're coming out
We're coming out to the street
We're coming out
We're coming out to the street

When the light's on you!
How do you like it!
When the light's on you!
Uhn! You just:
scatter scatter scatter scatter
scatter scatter scatter scatter

[bridge]

(scatter!)
and The Duke has been run out of town
(scatter!)
and soon The Hammer will be coming down
(scatter!)
scatter Scooter no time to make demands
(scatter!)
Cowboy and your posse, make your last stand

[rude horn solo!]
