THEME SONG!!!!!

The Really Good Pot Roast has written a theme for my tumblr. When asked what kind of music I enjoy, I shrieked, “‘80s Synth Pop!!!!”  Yeah, they did it right.  This is just awesome.  I’m listening and head bobbing with my eyes closed, thinking all sorts of meaningful things.

I have made the album artwork the f*cking flower that I would really like teenage girls who are into “boho” to stop reblogging. That f*cking flower now has over 14,000 notes, is being used by some UK internet shop (without my permission), is several people’s avatars, and is the bane of my internet existence. It’s like people haven’t really thought about the whole Georgia O’Keefe “sometimes a flower isn’t just a flower” thing.

Apparently Thor factors in to this tumblr a bit. That makes me happy.  Would you like some Thor with your Thor?

Seriously guys, this is awesome. I’m giggling and bouncing over here.

-TLOTH

And finally, another theme song, this time for the awesome Lady of the House. Check back with us soon for updates on our theme song album to be released on Bandcamp!

See You Next Tuesday (NSFW)

by

The Tumblorchestra, Featuring The Really Good Pot Roast, Texnessa, Dr Cranquis, and TLOTH.


The challenge began with an innocuous suggestion by helms-deep that we could start a band here on Tumblr.  We saw that as a gauntlet thrown.  So we called, and a few brave tumblrs answered.

Texnessa and her favorite word were the first to arrive, and completely dictated the song direction of the song.  Dr. Cranquis sent along his sections, and they fit perfectly in our odd little minds.  TLoTH brought it home with some harmonies.

We got your submissions and we wrote and recorded piecemeal over the last week or so. 

And now we present to you, “See You Next Tuesday”, the NSFW Tumblorchestra first single.

  • Texnessa: Vocals, Cowbell
  • Cranquis: Vocals, Clapping / shaker, Kazoo solo
  • TLOTH: Vocals
  • RGPR: Backing music, Vocals, Additional lyrics

Lyrics:

"See You Next Tuesday"

The way you move
It draws me in
For you I’d find my faith just so that I could sin
Don’t know your name
But that’s okay
Everything I need is all in how you say

Texnessa / TLOTH / Dr. Cranquis

Yes indeed
Got you in mind
As I’m praying on my knees for a sign
I hear your voice
Calling out to me
Point me in the right direction and suddenly I see (your)

Texnessa / TLOTH / Dr. Cranquis

Somewhere among
the truth and lies
Lives your crusade against love’s compromise
Give you what you want
Tell me what you need
I’ll see you next Tuesday, and every day between (in your)

Texnessa / TLOTH / Dr. Cranquis

Tumblorchestra: It’s coming…

We’re on the tail end of the disaster we call a Writing/Recording/Mixing process.

Tumblorchestra… it’s coming.

See you next Tuesday…  or sooner.

-RGPR

Tumblorchestra, Assemble…?

Mmmkay.  So far, we’ve received snippets from Texnessa and Dr. Cranquis.  Both sets of submissions are awesome, and we’re dying to work with them. We could build songs around either, but there’s a common thread between them.

Helms-deep?

PalmtreePalmtree?

TLOTH?

Anybody?

Record or send the following:

  1. 5 words: Any 5. 
  2. Hand Claps: Clap 4 times.  We’ll take care of the rest.  Try and clap at 120bpm.  If you don’t know what I just said, just clap slowly and we’ll cut and paste until you sound like a boss.
  3. Expletives!  Record your self shouting “Fuck you”, “shitsnacks”, “Whorefist”, or the expletive of your choice (you could combine #1 & #3)
  4. Some instrument:  Anything you want.  Atonal humming, cowbell, guitar, flute, violin, yelling.  We’ll cut and edit to fit.  Try to keep at 120bpm, or at least a consistent tempo that we can timeshift, if needed.
  5. Lyrics:  You write it, we’ll sing it.  Think Anchorman.  (I’m Ron Burgundy?)

If you need recording software, Audacity is a great, free, recording application.

If you want to do an instrument solo, let us know, and we’ll work on music and send you a section to record your part to, as well as key and tempo.

If we don’t get anything else, we’ll run with what we have, and will start writing/recording this week.

Something will come of this, somehow.

Tumblorchestra Update:
Welcome, Sallydoodle!
We await your submissions.  I’m already wearing my DOOMphones.

Tumblorchestra, Assemble!

Hey!  I just remembered something:

Weren’t we supposed to be doing something?

If I recall, there was a call out there for a Tumblr band camp experience.  We can Captain Planet this thing with your powers combined.  We volunteered to help put the music together.  Time to call people out.

Texnessa: Cowbell?

PalmtreePalmtree: Claps?

Cranquis: ????

Helms-Deep: Tuba/Bass/Marimba/Oboe something something?

If you’re still interested in The great “Tumblr Goes to Band Camp” extravaganza, grab your microphones and record a few things for us:

  1. 5 words: Any 5.  Be creative.
  2. Hand Claps: Clap 4 times.  We’ll take care of the rest.  Try and clap at 120bpm.  If you don’t know what I just said, just clap slowly and we’ll cut and paste until you sound like a boss.
  3. Fuck You!  Record your self shouting “Fuck you”, if you’d like.  Or the expletive of your choice (you could combine #1 & #3)
  4. Some instrument:  Anything you want.  Atonal humming, cowbell, guitar, flute, violin, yelling.  We’ll cut and edit to fit.  Try to keep at 120bpm.
  5. Lyrics:  We’ll sing it if you write it.

Record these as separate audio clips.  MP3 or WAV is preferable.  Put them up on dropbox or some file share, or Ask Hole us if you want to email it.  The band will take care of the rest!  Tell your friends!

Posting this in reference to TLOTH’s recent post featuring her awesome AoD T-Shirt.  I bought this DVD in my junior year of college because it was the first set I saw that featured both the original and director’s cut, which had the alternate ending!  I was stoked.  It should be noted that I bought this 2 months before I owned a DVD player.  I needed it.  NEED.

Shop smart.  Shop S-Mart.

Welcome Home - The Really Good Pot Roast


The idea for this song came to me last week when TLOTH went away for a few days. I had this idea to write a welcome back song for her. A fanfare that would play every time she walked in the door and I was there to greet her. The final lyrics drift a bit from that idea. TLOTH has never left me out in the cold to die (She couldn’t if she wanted to, it’s been 60 degrees all winter). 

After demoing the track, I sent it over to Mark and he really put it all together by creating a bridge, adding a bassline, then reorganizing and adding to the harmonies. (I take full responsibility for the AutoTune.   It has a setting called “T-Pane” and I used it.)

TLOTH has long reminded me that I still have not written a song for her. The main reason for this is that I have this constant fear that whatever I write for her won’t be good enough. I hope she likes this one.

Right and Tired

Today is my anniversary.  As such, I thought I’d post a song I’d written for my lovely wife.  Last year during 50/90, I was traveling for work a lot, and wound up writing a song called Worktrip, a pop rock song with heavy guitars and a punk beat.

This song is the complete opposite.

This year, just before the start of 50/90, I was on another work trip, and I wrote another song. This time, instead of a sarcastic view of traveling for work and having meetings, I wrote a quasi-love song for my wife. As I flew home on a night flight, I wrote the song, chords and all, on the back of my ticket. The day after I landed, I recorded this song for my wife when she went out to the gym, then left it in her car for her to play on her way to work that Monday. It has more of a country, folk vibe than I originally expected, but I think it works, and I’m very happy with it.

My wife listened to the song again recently, and asked me to post it to 50/90 so people don’t think I only write depressing or angry songs.

This is Right and Tired, and it’s a favorite because my wife likes it. I hope you enjoy, and forgive this small cheat of mine.

I’d also like to point out that our marriage was directly as a result of TLOTH's influence.  She meddled and put my wife and I in the same room together.  We met and never wanted to be anywhere but in the same room together ever again.  Thank you, TLOTH.

Shortbus

This song is awesome.  One day, Rob texted me and said he had some lyrics for a new song.  A punk song.  But he wasn’t sure how to move forward with the music.  He tasked me to read through the lyrics and see what I could come up with.

I sent him a demo an hour later that is largely what you hear here.

This song is a throw back to 70’s and early 80’s punk rock.  Fun, goofy lyrics with a driving beat and a 12-bar blues base.  It’s rude, and funny, and I love this song. 

This song and post is for The Lady of the House, for her Chevy Tahoe shortbus.

-M!?

For the Lady of the House.

The Really Good Pot Roast will dance and play for you as dancing playing monkeys that dance and play should.

P.S.  I wish this was an animated gif.
