a while back, i got drunk and thought i'd see what it was like hanging out here whilst drunk. i didn't have very much fun and decided i wasn't coming back here anymore.
but the crushing boredom of nightshift kept bringing me back. so i resigned myself to be a lurker.
however, it seems the forum is in a high state of creativity right now (i think it has something to do with the approaching winter, but that's another discussion)
anyhow, i've been feeling pretty creatively inspired by a lot of the threads going on around here lately. while i was reading the CD GASM* thread, i had an idea to do something similar.
i realized that i keep coming back here because you guys talk about the stuff that nobody talks about, so i present:
how it works:
if you want to play: record a spoken audio clip where you talk about something (or things) that nobody talks about. the "nobody" here is people outside the forum, of course. so, you know - things that aren't sports, the weather, politics, etc. i'm sure there's something bouncing around in your head that you think is pretty amazing or awesome, but nobody talks about it. or, if that doesn't work, you could talk about why nobody talks about those things. spice it up with a little background music if you like, but try to keep the focus on the narrator. also, i think it would be appropriate to record as though the listener has never heard of discordianism and isn't familiar with the lexicon.
once you have something recorded, shoot me a PM and I will provide you an email address where you can send the audio file. (.mp3 or .wav)
when i have either a)received enough submissions to fill a CD or b)the deadline of 10/31/10 has been reached, i will post here that i'm no longer accepting submissions (unless i get such an abundance of submissions to warrant multiple CDs, but lets worry about that later)
it is assumed that all submissions are copyleft and intended to be duplicated and distributed.
after i have compiled all the submissions into a CD, i will post in this thread that the CD is ready for distribution. Anyone interested in a copy can then send me a PM and I will provide an address to which they can send a blank audio CD inside a self addressed stamped envelope and I will copy the files onto the CD and send it back to you to listen to, enjoy, copy and distribute.
*i liked the CD GASM idea very much, it was the "what if people are afraid of viruses?" thought that got me thinking audio - i don't think you can give a CD player a virus. . .
