Forget / F**k You! (a onenaoko interpretation of Cee Lo's song)

I was listening to this song a while back, not paying it much attention, when it got to the bridge and the dope bass line really stuck out.  "Whoa!....I'm putting this on the list."  It seemed like a fun lighthearted video to do, and who hasn't wanted to tell somebody, at some point, "f**k you!"

Or at the very least, "I don't like you.  You need to go over there now."

My favorite part, aside from the bass line, is the "ooh ooh ooh!"s that come after Cee Lo sings.  I'm not sure why they seem so funny to me.  I like the idea of someone angrily saying "f**k you!" to someone, and backup singers appearing to go "ooh ooh ooh!"



In other news, my last day of working two jobs was yesterday.

I'm relieved.  It hasn't really hit me yet.  I think it probably will during the week, when I come home and don't have to work another 2-4 hours.  I also am glad I don't have to spend 10-16 hours working on the weekend anymore :)

While everyone always says, "I don't know how you do it," with the whole 70-75 hours a week (ish), people don't quite grasp just HOW much time I spent working when I was a teacher.  70 hours minimum was my work week.  I was honestly probably closer to 80.  My "me time" was me going to the grocery store.  I do not recommend this type of lifestyle, actually.  But in comparison, working 70ish hours doing very different worked seem fairly easy and doable.

I now ask myself: what am I going to do with all my time??

Sleep.  I hope the answer is sleep.  And maybe I'll start watching tv again.  And practicing more.  And making more videos.  And I'd like to learn how to skateboard.

I'm sure I'll think of something :)

Producing a song

It has been a busy week.

Fun, but busy.

At work, we are producing a song, for all intensive purposes.  We took a song, spruced it up a bit, took it from a piano background to piano, drums, bass, ukulele, and cello (this is why I'm involved), recorded it, mastered it, and shot a music video for it.

Yeah, my job is super cool.

The Worst Song

I try to be relatively positive in life.

I consider myself an optimist.

I find joy in small things.

However, I'm sad to say that I have discovered the worst song.  I THOUGHT it was "Party Hard" by Andrew W.K. (it's really really bad).  I've come across a lot of forgettable songs in my line of work.  I've come across some gross ones.  I've come across songs that other people may like but I find very blah (What Do You Mean by Justin Bieber would fall under that category).  I have discovered both the music of and my dislike for Calvin Harris.  I mean...how many times can you do a 16 bar build up of nothing with the same syncopated rhythm that just drops into...the same thing.

Having said this, THIS song is worse.

So so much worse.

Are you ready?
