I was going to post a song to get you through the first week of Thing a Week withdrawal, but I had a lot of trouble recording it (mostly due to my persistent headaches and jittery voice). This is a week late, therefore, but it's a tribute to the Thing a Week cycle, set to a familiar tune. It can be found at my blog:
I wonder if I could convince any of you to rerecord this. My abilities with regard to music go about as far as listening to it. (I also used to be decent at music theory, and can still play a mean theoretical violin.)
I have changed the instrumentation considerably, mostly because I only know how to play the piano. If you're as dissatisfied with that as I am, imagine, as Tom Lehrer says, that I'm playing an 88-string guitar.
I shan't go into too much detail about this here -- I established my blog, after all, so I could have a place to blather interminably. I'll probably have something written about it there soon (i.e. Monday), but it probably won't be very interesting.
I owe many thanks, of course, to JoCo Himself, and also to M_pony, Birdguy, aldenc98, and everyone else involved with the chord transcriptions that I plagiarized compunctionlessly.
Comments, questions, etc., can be posted here or in my blog comments or sent to my e-mail address, which is vaguelyamusing at-the-price-of gmail full-stop com.
