Thanks muchly, Panu. I’ve never listened much to Zappa, though folks have often said I should… Any album suggestions?

Definitely. I already paid for the first round, though… You can pick up the next… We’ll just have to make a night of it. :)

Thanks, Anchor… it was quite fun to put together.

Very unique Kara and it’s very apropos towards the lyrics. Shape shifters are very intriguing, I must say :). Well done.

I bet you this will go to the top of the charts in the Gamma quadrant. :) I love how your voice absolutely matches what’s happening in the backing track.

Manamana-namana!!!!

Thanks for listening, Admiral. That was the awesome part about both XBringer and Fireproof Babies samples… they both had chill and intense parts… a little cut and paste… and… :)

It’s kinda creepy how that word was always the same in the dream and I can’t ever forget it…

I do so like a piece that tells a story that I haven’t heard before. My ufo/alien dreams were always of the ‘large hovering craft filling the sky’ variety. I also like all those megabytes of great samples.

Thanks, Speck. My lil’ flyer saucers were probably scouting out the scene for your large hovering one…

Im no good at dream interpretation and you probably need an expert for this one anyway.
Much enjoyed listening. Arty and confusingly charming.

Yeah… let’s leave this one uninterpreted, eh? Thanks for listening, Timberman. I’m very glad to hear that you enjoyed it.

Panu evoked the name of Zappa in the 1st review, and he (Zappa) famously asked, “Does Humor belong in Music?” I think it does, and you’ve done a swell job here. Thank you for using my synthetic drums :)

permalink   Kara Square Tue, Aug 2, 2011 @ 6:31 AM
Thanks, FB. I certainly agree with you and Zappa. Your drums were the missing piece of the puzzle. Thanks for posting them.

p.s. Do you have any Zappa album suggestions? I’m not as familiar with him as I should be.

permalink   Fireproof_Babies Tue, Aug 2, 2011 @ 8:21 AM
For the beginner Zappa curious, I’d recommend the albums, “Apostrophe”, as well as “Overnight Sensation”. These albums, were meant to go together. I’ve included a link to “Don’t eat the Yellow Snow”. You should also check out the songs, “Dinha-Moe Humm”, as well as, “Montana”. These songs are all from the aforementioned albums. They’re all on youtube…….. enjoy!

Thanks, FB! I appreciate it. “Don’t eat the Yellow Snow” was particularly awesome… I’ve got the albums on reserve at the library now. :)

permalink   Fireproof_Babies Wed, Aug 3, 2011 @ 9:29 AM
Glad you could dig it. Funny you should mention the library, as I need to go there in some minutes. The heat is just horrible out here, so I’m powering-up for it :)

You’re too kind! Thank you for listening. It’s so nice that these pieces of musical madness have found a friendly home… it’s freeing, ya’ know? (I wouldn’t invite to this dream- these shape shifting aliens were very… shifty characters. Not to be trusted.) :)
