App of the Month
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"
