I just vocalled this REALLY AWESOME SONG for ATD20. When I say just, I mean an hour ago. Then I did this. For half an hour of doing this I was on the phone to BJ. BJ did the song I was vocalling. It’s sort-of a cover. OH YOU ARE GONNA DIG THIS ISH! IT IS SO VERY CHOICE!
Can you guess what it is?
If you can, I’ll give you a fabulous NO PRIZE.
Rah then. I am totally staying up all night, natch.
Yep, I’m gonna be up all night finishing ATD20. YES I AM. Just like the old days. Whoooooo!
It’s gonna be awesome.
Rah, if you’d like to be on ATD20, well, YOU CAN! Send me a recording of you saying “ATD20″ and whatever else you like via email: akirathedon at googlemail.com. One day I’ll work out a clever futuristic way of doing it, but that day is not today.
Rah though, I have good news! I switched to a different supplier for the ATD Security shirts. They’re still the same organic, carbon neutral sexy cotton (ha!), but they now come in XXL! You can order here. They’ll be in next week.
Aight. Back to work. Crap, I gotta do a strip as well!
Phew. I am pooped. I cannot write anything of any use. Cheers for your company earlier, I verilly did enjoy that Doncast. Tragically, the end did not save, and I didn’t remeber to start recording until after our special Mancunian guests (cheers guys!) had gone. So that one’s lost to the ether, and you can tell your grandkids you were there.
Oh sweet Jesus, I am freaking myself out up in here. ATD20 drops in 2 days! ARGHHHHHHHHH! I have so much to do! I calmed myself a little while drawing today’s strip by listening to ATD7, or which ever one it was that dropped when I’d started reading about Ye Ole Illuminati on the internets. Hang on, let me check. Ha! It was ATD9 – the one with Adam Weishaupt on the front. Natch. There are definitely some cringey moments on there for me (you try listening to yourself “learning”, its torturous), but there were definitely some flashes of brilliance in there. The beat for Rick Witter is fucking brilliant! I might re-vocal it. Not that the OG vocal is the worst thing on that tape or anything. It’s just an infinitely smashable beat. It has bounce.
It was also amusing to hear that clip of Alex Jones moaning about Noam Chomsky being a shill, and claiming to have “more intelligence than that guy with my hands tied behind my back.” I am still at a loss as to how having one’s hands tied behind one’s back limits one’s intelligence, but I bet it doesn’t trouble Alex Jones much, and I bet he sits at home on cold winter’s nights on a great big pile of gold coins, listening to old wavs of him in the mid naughties, garbed in nothing but a huge, shit eating grin.
Ew, what a terrible vision. It is this ungodly hour, I must to my bed, that I may rise at 6:30 and get on with the business of Making Awesome Mixtape.
And don’f forget! Be here at 5pm GMT for the second All New Weekly Doncast! Live and direct from Panic Studios! HOOO GRAAAAAAAAAAAH!
So. Aside from cracker ass crackers, this strip was bought to you by the recorded comedy of Bill Bailey.
“How many Scientologists does it take to change a lightbulb? Two. One to change the lightbulb, and one to tell Tom Cruise they cost $6000 each.”
And cheers you, for your strip title suggestions! As luck would have it today has been a bloody arse of a thing, and I haven’t had time to read them all yet, but I did notice that Akira Nightly one, and I did chuckle. I might save that one for my deep-voiced late night radio show, on which I will play nothing but love songs… “and this goes out to Sharon in Humberside, who wants to let Kevin know she misses him very much…”
Ah. Good times.
Anyway, yeah, you keep those strip titles coming in, and I shall hopefully find some time to give them my full attention tommorrow. Might read some emails too.
Main priority, OF COURSE, is ATD20. 4 DAYS! ARGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!
