Mia - no. The boss (and everyone but the crazy guy and NJ) just thinks you're a fax machine and they don't pay much attention to you unless they need to fax something. You fuck with most people by giving them weird messages in the LCD, but for the boss, who doesn't really know how to use a fax machine properly, you do everything for him. In one episode they decide to replace you, but the boss can't figure out the new fax machine, and demands to have you brought back. That's a tear jerker episode. Probably around sweeps weak. They move you down to the mail room. It's very sad.
story of my life!

I wouldn't know - this is my first time doing one. I'm only doing this one cause it requires a third of the music normally needed. So I'm trying to come up with 60-80 minutes of music that has a theme.

My biggest problem is lack of material. I have terrible music knowledge. I'm like the worst person to do one of these.

I've actually come up with some good transitions, so hopefully I don't fuck this up too bad.

Those games have lots of words. And all sorts of rules for formatting and shit. No way I could make the cut. I'd be DQ'd before they got halfway through my email.

Mia - I want to keep it real. I gots to. Sorry.

Besides, I'm too lazy to even read all of the rules.

Phale.
New spelling of fail = makes April's day

Referring to oneself in third person = shows need of weekend getaway

Problem to be solved tomorrow afternoon.

They need fresh blood in that thing. It's the same people each time. Which means every one of those things ends up being prog

Mine is very transition based, not just from song to song, but section to section. But the sections smoothly move. It starts very atmospheric, with a few synthesizers, to piano, to light guitar songs, then acoustic finish.

I think mine will lose just because there are a lot of options for my goal that I don't know since I don't know that much music.

I've got almost a month though, so we'll see.

But it's only 60-80 minutes this time. That's like 2, maybe 3, prog songs. I'm far too superficial, shallow and too much of a sheep to truly appreciate and understand prog anyhow. And ADD + Prog = Bad Mix. I can't focus through an entire Ramones song, no way I can pay attention to the Pentatonic Scale for 22 minutes followed by 12 minutes of snare to tom tom to kick drum. Ugh. Prog. lol.

Prog to me:
9 minutes synth intro.
Bass line for 4 minutes on top of that.
Vocals: "Dancing Gnomes....On Mushroom Tops....Snow Falls....Like Lollipops"
29 minutes bass solo leads to
16 minutes guitar solo
Verse two: "Dancing Gnomes....On Mushroom Tops....Summer Rain...Country Shops"
21 minute guitar solo for the second guitarist
All instruments drop but the synth for 6 minutes
Verse 3: "The Gnomes Weep....Like Summer Mist....On Summer Days....They keep their list."
All instruments "jam" for 8 minutes.
3 minute synth fade out.

BEAV! I didn't know you liked Gym Class Heroes. They're coming to VT ya know. If a certain boss hooks up with a certain fax machine, perhaps there's a free ticket with your name on it.

OK, we're putting a prog band in the show. One episode is silent, all the action is told through mime and Prog music. We'll have to find a real short prog song though - shows are only like 22 minutes, right? Dammit.

I don't know if I like them actually. I heard two songs when I was away, and both were pretty cool. I was just wondering how the rest of their stuff is.

Ha. Very true.



Btw, I heard the name Gym Class Heroes and immediately cast them off as one of those emo bands. But they're good?
