App of the Month

I was going to say, "I can't take credit for this app....", but that's really true of all apps, isn't it?

I am not a software engineer, but if anyone wants to throw me the next 'Angry Birds' idea, I'll be happy to claim it as my own, cash in and retire.

No, Pac, from Pac's Pad posted this the other day and I axed him (I mean, not the way Lizzie Borden would) if I could steal it and credit him.  He was down with it. Very generous about it, actually.

Songify is my new App of the Month.

Basically, you read (I guess you could sing) into your iPhone after firing up the app and it will take your words and set them to "music".  Yes, that's in quotes.

Sure half the artists on the radio are sounding exactly the way I do, but they have better agents and managers.  I mean, how else do you explain Britney Spears or Key-Dollar Sign-HA!?  It ain't their talent.  They don't have any.

Spears' agent is so good that after her last tour where every review wrote how she overtly lipsynched the entire tour, I haven't heard one item saying she is or isn't singing on the one that passed through town.  I think it's safe to say it's pre-recorded, which of course, makes it all the worse.   I mean - you HAVE the technology and your voice is still reed-thin and out of tune??  Really girls - what is your excuse?

So by all accounts, I should be resting atop of the Billboard Hot 100 in the next month.  It's the only logical conclusion.  Right?

It seems that you have three or four "music" background choices.  There are more, but you have to pay for them.  I think we all know that is not going to happen with me.

So here I am reading/singing/auto-tuning the welcome card left on my bed at the Fairfield Inn.   I know you shiver with anticip.................................................................................(say it!!!!)................ation!

I feel like Angie Jordan (aka the Queen of Jordan) when she said "'My Single is Dropping' is dropping'  So with out further delay, here is my first released song, "A Promise is a Promise"

The way that Glee Principal pronounced Ke$ha still makes me ROAR. And, actually, I can no longer pronounce it any other way.

Ha! If you'd like, you can appear on Thursday nights at my place. I can't guarantee a full house, unless you count a cat and a dog. But I'd rather have you than Britney. Any day. And, you should make millions.

Hoo-haw! This is AWESOME! I'll definitely be posting my very first "Best Of" album on my blog very soon. Thanks for sharing this.

This is EXCELLENT. A real feel-good hit.

That is a bizarre mix of Daft Punk meets the Main Street Electrical Parade.

The final chorus of "reflects the highest quality standards" is very touching. Full of pain and heartache. An artist is born. BRAVO!

John and I did this the other day. I had no idea what he was doing, he just said talk into the phone... and I mostly said "stop, what are you doing, stop it"... and it came out really good. I'm thinking of getting on a label. I tried uploading it to my blog... didn't work though.
