Human: “HAHAHA Animals are so dumb!”
*goes to war with its own species, uses up all of its resources, destroys its own environment, pollutes its own air and water*
Animal: *licks its own asshole*
human: *licks someone else’s asshole and calls it sex*
this is mY FAVORITE THING
So I’ve never done anything like this before.
I’ve created a song in my miniscule down time working on Steam Powered Giraffe business stuff.
It was a sort of therapy for me to get away from all the hard work we’ve been doing in the group…stress and all that stuff…
The weird thing is…
It’s a Steam Powered Giraffe song, but it currently has no plans to be a Steam Powered Giraffe song. It’s not going to be an an album or anything that I know of….but I had to make it…I was compelled to.
That’s a bit weird…but it’s how I feel about it right now.
We’ve got tons of cool songs lined up for the album though…this just popped into my head a few days ago…and I made it instead of playing The Last of Us. :3
It’s far from a finished product…I mean I threw it together in a few days working like an hour or so each day. But it came together quickly…
This is just a prototype. So be warned!
I thew it together in a few days…
That means it is far from polished and not ready for human consumption.
You’ll have to excuse the cheesy synthetic horns…they sound bad.
Sadly I didn’t have time to record a full horn section in my down time :P
But they get the general idea across.
Even with that…
You’re probably going to pour it down your ears anyways because the temptation is too much!
This is a high concept song.
I’ll explain why…
Here’s the breakdown…
The Spine falls in love with a human warrior woman while battling bad guys with her. They both have katanas and it’s really sweet and awesome and cool and stuff.
They frolic together and are happy together in their puppy love, which blossoms into a caring and understanding of each other…but then one day they’re surrounded by bad guys again.
Epic battle ensues.
They’re kicking butt.
Hatchworth and Rabbit join the fray.
At the last moment The Spine dodges out of the way when a big bad boss dude throws his sword at him. The Spine cuts him down.
Sadly the sword impales the warrior woman and she dies.
The Spine is sad. Buries her and visits her grave when he can.
Think of it like a really cool music video that could be made if we had the time, money, and proper swords. Black silhouettes for all the characters during battle, white weapons, colorful hand drawn backdrops.
It’s cool right?!
Now imagine the song finished, with Rabbit and Hatchworth in it…and the instrumentation better and not synthetic…
Michael Reed adds his magic to the mix…and Sam and Bunny giving their input….then Steve tells me it’s not chiptunes and we play DnD instead…and Matt does some killer drum stuff..and maybe blows some horns for us…
I am sharing this with you all because it’s on the back burner, not slated for Steam Powered Giraffe currently (I got the okay to post it from Bunny) and making it was actually a bit more personal for me.
The idea and the inspiration was all sparked from a lovely lady who has made me really happy recently, and when I am in a good mood…I CREATE, even when we are pushed for time, in the middle of a gazillion shows, creating an album, and the timing is just bad all around.
there ya go.
This is not an Engineer-eteer exclusive.
Just a David Michael Bennett song about The Spine falling in love.
Art imitates life sometimes.
That’s weird right?
Me writing a song for Steam Powered Giraffe but not as Steam Powered Giraffe? I mean obviously it’s The Spine singing, but it’s me doing the song. Maybe it sounds a bit like Postal Service here and there…or Owl Shitty…or…whateverIdunnoknow…it’s a PROTOTYPE!
But now you know my lore ideas for The Spine’s lost love.
SUPER SECRET STUFF!
If I wasn’t coming down from a stressful week, I probably wouldn’t have shared this.
But I did.
never not reblog…I love this even though it kills me.
*curls into the fetal position*
Ughhh I thought this was gone forever but now I’ve found it again and it makes me happy but sad at the same time
Rebel and Wolf hold onto the song and never want to let it go again.
Oh god… I’m drawing something for this… I’m drawing something for this RIGHT NOW.
