I Make Sold Records

Today, in homage to Dance Party Wednesday, I put on my headphones (one ear on, one ear off natch so I could hear if the phone rang with the latest chart rankings) and pretended to be a record producer. I stared at the wall intently while listening to several blazin’ new artists, and I greenlighted 9 out of 10 projects with a smile implying I-smell-some-serious-future-Grammy action.

The project I put on hold was just someone’s voicemail messages, and I told them, bring it back to me in a week with a hook and a bass line. So don’t even start with me about the 9 out of 10.

Oh yeah, this is the good stuff!

Too bad all of the artists are already represented, and their songs are already produced.

It was an exercise, people…an exercise in positive thinking.

Guess what? It worked.

I got an afternoon full of hottt beatz

and

I just made several peoples’ dreams come true in retrospect

and

there was NO paperwork.

Apparently, not a lot of people enjoyed this video. But in my opinion, it just gets better the longer you watch it. It’s a momentous example of weird-good.
