today’s “enjoy the silence” webcast is about to begin
greetings from roundhewd studio, day 2, in auckland.
WE ARE ABOUT TO GO LIVE FOR DAY 2!! there’s already about 300 people heading in!!! come come come:
if you missed the memo, the cast yesterday was WONDERFUL (you can watch the replay here, but not NOW, for god’s sake!) and the upshot is that we decided i would do a cover recording, today in realtime for the webcast, of depeche mode’s “enjoy the silence”.
so i’ve been practicing my little tuckus off last night and this morning and i’m READY.
here’s me at lucy lawless’s living room piano, practicing my ass off this morning at 7:45…don’t say i don’t fuckin work hard for the money betches
the cast will begin at 11:11 sharp and i’kll have a meeting with the engineers and before you know it, i’ll be at that piano, banging it out, doing takes, making magic in the studio while ytou watch live, for the first time. I CANNOT WAIT. this is usually such an intimate space for me, but helll…..i’m ready. come watch me do bad vocal takes, one after another! watch me make mistake after mistake on the piano!!! COME SEE ME BE FLAWED.
it’s a process. this is music. this is art. i want you to understand how it all works.
the whole recording should take about 2-3 hours, and if we are lucky you’ll get to watch us in the control room as we work on the final mix of the song. it’s a really amazing thing to watch if you’ve never seen anything like this. so…..pop in! pop out! cook food! use the chat!
i was so giddy after our webcast yesterday that i hit a vintage shop next to the studio and bought a pretty dress and a new imono for the webcast today. THERE WILL BE AN INTERMISSION, AND AN OUTFIT CHANGE before i do vocals.
the plan today is that we’ll kick off in a few moments, i’ll have
this comment made me really happy, by the way.
the comments and the community conversation – and connections – in and through the chat have just been getting better and better over the years and webcasts. i love watching you guys meeting and learning and loving each other. keep that going. don’t be afraid. there’s nothing to lsoe here. we’re a community. if you wanna say something, reach out, empathize, suggest….help…..just do it.
love all the people, as bill hicks wisely said.
see you in a couple minutes.
