Edited to Add after hurrying up and finishing the OTTification:

I have arrived in my skimmy reblitz at page 786, roughly the point where I abandoned my original more thorough quest and began reading in the past only very infrequently, from here I will resume schizoblitzing as normal, with none of this skimming heresy.
But before I do that, this post was on NP 748, I like the band mostly because their songs amuse me, for instance the Unicorn Invasion of Dundee, featuring zombie unicorns, and fireballs that make buildings "collapse to the floor".
On my first blitz I considered finishing an OTTification that Yappo started:
yappobiscuits wrote:(Warning: Cheesy Power Metal)

RIDE!
To the far away mountains...
FIGHT!
Many raptors and molps...
QUEST!
For the source of the river,
To find the reason the sea rises up!


But I didn't until now.

So here are the New lyrics:

Sung by cueball after the fact, with great exaggeration of his own importance and foresight.
Spoiler:
Walk! To the faraway mountains...
Find! Many raptors and molps...
Quest! For the source of the river 2...
To find the reason the sea1 rises up!

The sun kept on shining
As we turned to the north
We set out on a journey so far
And made our way thenceforth
Past coffee and cancer
all covered with ice
A molpython we saw
but onwards we did strive
Though it’s just Megan and me
We must find a way to the source of the sea!
So Hike! Through the faraway mountains...
Find! Many raptors and molps...
Quest! For the source of the river...
We wield the power to save our whole crew!

Our mission was simple
Our purpose was clear
We came to a mountain up high
And found a mystical shrine
But when we got there
Their maps we did steal
We had to get down the hill
With the secret Rosetta revealed
The Sea is coming! we called
As we passed by the molpies from timeframes of old
Run! To the faraway people...
Past! Many raptors and molps...
Tell! Them the source of the river...
We found the reason the sea rises up!
The tribe lies before me now
Raftcastle in sight
We raise our voice to the heavens above
and we warn our kin
Flee! To the faraway mountains...
Find! Many raptors and molps...
Far! From the source of the river...
We found the reason the sea rises up.

Run! To the faraway mountains...
Find! Many raptors and molps...
Quest! For the source of the river...
...
Run! To the faraway mountains...
Find! Many raptors and molps...
Quest! For the source of the river...
We found the reason the sea rises up!

I'm impressed.

I will upload it on the actual machine and check how it sounds then.

You might want to add one silent note at the end of sheet0.
When the interpreter goes to STPP it immediately stops and the decay of the last note is is cut off.

Thanks! Here's an updated version with the decay on the last note.

Spoiler:
(I sung an OTTified version of their track Amy's Song at OTTerCon 3 yips ago!) and on their latest album the song I enjoy best is called Float. I think I've linked it in here before.
Another artist I rather like is Matthew Parker (who I discovered at the start of last yip when StormAngel googled 'water parkour' after we visited the beach, and found this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rHLwgEesLcY which has a Matthew Parker song I instantly liked as its soundtrack), so I was very very very happy when Matthew Parker made a remix of float. It is very much to my personal taste and so I dub it hotdiggetishly molpish. For those who like the dubstep side of things. Also it's in 7/4 time.
Do you have a recording of this OTTification?
Aside from a couple of their beautiful letdown tracks I never liked Switchfoot as much as some people, but the Matthew Parker cover was pretty good.
You should check out sMALLTIME and Scott Stapp.

I haven't recorded myself singing it, and IIRC if there was any capture of the stream of the OTTerConcert it was of m*stard quality and wasn't worth sharing, or something like that. Maybe I could make one like I have for a couple of my other OTTifications but it's rare for me to have time, opportunity, and motivation.

  1. The sidebar on their Wikipedia page lists "Alestorm" as an associated actB
  2. Alestorm's page list them as being in the "Pirate Metal" genre
  3. The page for Pirate Metal has a list of bands, including "Iron Seawolf"H

See? It's all still RELATEDOoh, I'll have to check that out. I should add that I'm a sucker for any well-made song in an unorthodox time signature (5/4, 7/4, one song from Fort Minor that's in (4+4+6)/4).

The original of Float is also in 7/4 . But I found another remix which Switchfoot put on their channel, which is in 4/4 time. It's kinda treeish to listen to the difference.

Another source of music I rather like is the dancing violinist Lindsey Stirling, who I also found via StormAngel last year. I'm pretty sure I've linked to some of her vids before. A couple of pieces on her latest album that I like but probably haven't linked yet are Lost Girls and [urlhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gGC2zExt_HU]Mirage[/url].

Lindsey Stirling is RELATED because
    her song Shatter Me features Lzzy Hale
    Lzzy Hale is the lead vocalist and guitarist of Halestorm
    Halestorm appears at the top of the wikipedia page for Alestorm (see above), labelled 'not to be confused with' because there's only one letter difference.
(For bonus points, Halestorm has covered a Twenty One Pilots song, and Lindsey Stirling walked by a Twenty One Pilots concert in one of her live vlogs and wanted to go in, but I guess most people would, lol.)

We saw Lindsey Stirling in concert last year (July? Baobabs, that means it is nearing a full yip since I met Marsh'n!) and that show is probably my favorite of all time. Just so much energy and such a creative, talented person. Sadly, Lizzy Hale doesn't perform Shatter Me live with Lindsey, but it was still treeish. And, we got to hear some new music that wasn't publicly available yet off of the album that she would release about a mip later.

Welcome back ggh!
How was the trip? Did your transportation survive?
Perhaps b is wondering if he has received his birthday gift in the mail.

Ithilian, have you found mrob's dictionary?

I played around with balthasar's program, and dang, you guys are amazing. I haven't nearly enough patience to transcribe every note manually. Is there a way to automate it so lazy people like me can make songs? Or is it already and I'm missing something?

ETA:Image See Megan, that's what happens when you act like Cueball.

The javascript that's reloading the 1190 page is here, it looks like the timing is random, but apart from that, I can't tell right off what it does and I don't have Time to play with it.

Did s little skim-ketchup and got to listen to that file that taixzo created using balthasar's code. As always, I am impressed by the talent and all-around cleverness in this group.

Do we have a new Revealer the Recent? If so, welcome!

I have not yet done my taxes. I was frantically sewing a costume for a dance performance on SaturdipH, and now I have to RUN to finish it. And I need to learn some music for a show I just signed up for this week. I'm trying desperately to stay in the present, but not succeeding very well. :(

On the one hand, she's a violinist that plays classical-electro-pop-rock with some dubstep thrown in. There's a little smething there for pretty much everybody.

On the other hand, maybe all of your friends are just that molpish.

The song I did, by its nature, is quite repetitive. This made things a bit easier. Also, I originally planned to do just the beginning. Then I kept adding a bit more...

That latest OTColoured makes me think that the whole left-hand side of the beach is being massively undercut by the sea and will soon collapse into the water taking out at least the lefthand 2 supports for the upper sandworks. Thus causing a semencancerbaconbabiesonicepocalypse!

And today I find on youtube an "8bit cover" which someone uploaded 10 days ago and sounds almost the same.
What is the probability of such a thing?

Nothing but Blue Skies from now on.

EDIT: That lasted a few hours.
It started Raining as darkness fell.

It Rained all night long.
Dawn is wet and rainy.

New OtherComic.
At the time of this posting GLR had decided to leave the image file uncompressed.
The image is 10679x3577 pixels, and is named birdwatching_huge.png
Generally, an image file called comicname_2x is used, stored at
imgs.xkcd.com/comics/[comicname_2x].png
and a file called [Comicname] can also be accessed that is compressed to half the size of the original, but neither of those exist in this case.

Welcome forward, Rule110! Be careful, suddenly slowing from BlitzSpeed to OTTSpeed can be severely disorienting due to the temporal effects.

Wow, Rule110! Hi! So nice to see you after all this Time! And Time After Time!

Nice seeing some new blitzreports, yay Ithillian!

GnomeAnne, your NewComic link has m*tard. Looks like the same redundant m*stard Zooman had.

The sun is out todip, yay! We had more rain the last couple of dips, as did addams, and it was very gloomy. I'm ready for spring! Although I feel an attack of micromolpies coming on. :(

Steakish work on the music programming, taixzo! That's some serious compulsion dedication, spending 5 nopix on it. One of these dips I hope to try and play around with balthawhiz's molpish musical code.

I just noticed a lot of exclamation points in this post! I guess I'm really excited about everything!!

Molpy on!!!!

Just dropping in as I haven't in a while, just to avoid full on basementation again... my play opens in a week's time so everything's rather hectic with that right now and everything else in life is getting neglected, hence the lack of otting. Only a week left and only three rehearsals and I still have a chirp-ton of music to make for it, so stress levels are high right now. But still just wanted to pop in here for a little break from the stress...

Ah yes, just here. Though it was just a throwaway thing and not a full ottification. I'd love to see a full version...

On my first blitz I considered finishing an OTTification that Yappo started:
yappobiscuits wrote:(Warning: Cheesy Power Metal)

RIDE!

FIGHT!
Many raptors and molps...
QUEST!
For the source of the river,
To find the reason the sea rises up!


But I didn't until now.

So here are the New lyrics:

Sung by cueball after the fact, with great exaggeration of his own importance and foresight.
Spoiler:
Walk! To the faraway mountains...
Find! Many raptors and molps...
Quest! For the source of the river 2...
To find the reason the sea1 rises up!

The sun kept on shining
As we turned to the north
We set out on a journey so far
And made our way thenceforth
Past coffee and cancer
all covered with ice
A molpython we saw
but onwards we did strive
Though it’s just Megan and me
We must find a way to the source of the sea!
So Hike! Through the faraway mountains...
Find! Many raptors and molps...
Quest! For the source of the river...
We wield the power to save our whole crew!

Our mission was simple
Our purpose was clear
We came to a mountain up high
And found a mystical shrine
But when we got there
Their maps we did steal
We had to get down the hill
With the secret Rosetta revealed
The Sea is coming! we called
As we passed by the molpies from timeframes of old
Run! To the faraway people...
Past! Many raptors and molps...
Tell! Them the source of the river...
We found the reason the sea rises up!
The tribe lies before me now
Raftcastle in sight
We raise our voice to the heavens above
and we warn our kin
Flee! To the faraway mountains...
Find! Many raptors and molps...
Far! From the source of the river...
We found the reason the sea rises up.

Run! To the faraway mountains...
Find! Many raptors and molps...
Quest! For the source of the river...
...
Run! To the faraway mountains...
Find! Many raptors and molps...

Hahahaaa yes! Their songs are amusing, I love how they use deliberately bad grammar sometimes, making fun of European power metal bands who often accidentally use bad grammar as English isn't their first language. But English is Gloryhammer's first language, they just do it deliberately as a homage/parody of those bands :P Such as the phrase in one of their songs "an epic war was fight" which I always giggle at.

Fun fact: Gloryhammer (the band that plays 'Quest for the Hammer of Glory', in case that wasn't clear) is only about 3 Degrees of Separation on Wikipedia from Mr. Biscuits' band, Iron Seawolpy:

  1. The sidebar on their Wikipedia page lists "Alestorm" as an associated actB
  2. Alestorm's page list them as being in the "Pirate Metal" genre
  3. The page for Pirate Metal has a list of bands, including "Iron Seawolf"H

This is true! The drummer of Gloryhammer is also the drummer of Jaldaboath, who we once opened for. In addition, we're only one degree of seperation (in terms of bands we've gigged with) from Alestorm, as we've toured with Red Rum who toured with them, and a month ago we also played a gig with Lagerstein who were the main support on that tour.
(Also, the reason Alestorm are an "associated act" with Gloryhammer is more to do with Alestorm's frontman also being Gloryhammer's keyboardist, more so than just them being on the same record label :P )

The huge image was removed, and there is still an image at "birdwatching_huge.png" but it's the normal size. However, someone in the othercomic 1826 thread saved the original huge PNG image as an attachment.
  This is all rather interesting for a couple reasons: It gives some insight into GLR's creative process; and there's a single black pixel in the last panel at about waist height and directly below the intake nozzle of the shop vac.

Yes, true. I wonder what the story was there.
Was it the Time page that had a link to Geekwagon? Or was it just an associated blag post that did?


Treeish list mrob!
And, since you mentioned it last Time you were here Rule110, I should note that we did get around to that slash fiction not much later.


Oh yappo - that music box is steakish! You burnt it yourself?

ETA: Not exactly a cool instrument story, but confession: I taught preschool for a couple years, and I suffered from a bad case of the Sound of Music fantasy. 4-year-olds don't really sing that well though, and I am no musician, so yeah, that wasn't really going to happen. My compromise was to teach the kids to play Beethoven's Ode to Joy in three-part harmony on tuned ice-tea bottles. We performed it for our Spring Recital (Along with Five Little Ducks, River of Dreams, Take Me Out To the Ballgame, Achy-Breaky Heart, and a few other nursery favourites). Pinnacle of my teaching career. :)

Steambottle, why am I such a horrible procrastinator? I sit down to do a dip's writing and then my brain comes up with all sorts of other things to do instead :(

I'm pretty sure it was the Time page that linked to Geekwagon, I think the epilogue image was the link, this is a run-on sentence.
