So, I'm listening to Westwood while I do some website work (gotta be done, sorry), and he's playing this new Busta Rhymes and Swizz Beats joint that's got nothing to do with the Iron Man movie but is being affiliated with it anyway, which is canny enough, and anyway, its another one of those synth/808 joints with military snares and stuff, and Swizz doing that thing where he intones, "Wait! Stop the party! I don't wanna hurt nobody!" huskily. Swizz Beats' husky voice is a thing of strange wonder. ANYWAY. I am pretty sure Swizz beats did this record already, with a different rapper on it. What WAS that? Ish is doing my NUT IN!
Westwood wasn't feeling the Iron Man movie, for the record. "I could have done with more action and less story," said he. "Watching the movie felt like playing an X-Box game." Man, Wolverine was like that. What a load of poop. I loved that first Iron Man movie. I watched it a couple of birthdays back in Wales after we went to Port Meirion, which is where they filmed the old Prisoner. It was shut, actually. ANYWAY! I am still looking forward to going to see this new Iron Man movie on the weekend. Maybe I am DUMB.
Speaking of Westwood, I complained on Twitter the other day that Miss Info's gossip section section had too many plugs for her own website in it. Never let it be said that Miss Info doesn't listen to critics, since this came straight back at me:
And you know what? She's done exactly that. I am impressed. Although I still don't care for gossip.
Rah then. What else is going on? Well, I am about to get into a THIRD DECADE. That's kind of crazy, and lurking at the side of my mind. But like I was saying yesterday, I can't really think about anything much till I get this cotdang mixtape in your earbuds. There's a progress report in that image up top. Everything with a circle to the left of it is FINISHED. That means ALL THE SONGS ARE FINISHED. Now, if I had my way I'd spend a full day at least on ALL OF THEM, but I just do not have that luxury. So now it's just a case of mixing it all together. I got a pretty solid sequence, and I got ALL THE SOUND EFFECTS.
Oh man, I gotta do a sleeve too!
