Re: Free Plug ins

I did research the issue, and read that CSS2 would just pass over a 'color: transparent' instruction. Unfortunately, what I read was completely wrong . And the issues with IE are even worse than I thought. So, rather than create a dozen conditional stylesheets, I think a little text link to a pure v...

Re: Free Plug ins

Nice abuse of text-shadow. I wonder what it looks like on pre-CSS3 browsers though. ;) Probably less blurry. And in Explorer, everything in Courier New. Before I discovered text-shadow, I made a javascript thing which read lines of text and sequenced pre-blurred PNGs - one for each character. It wa...

Re: Free Plug ins

I've just set up a little site to house my musical projects, including samplepacks. There's some drums and misc samples there at the moment, which you might like. Have a look, and I'll be adding more soon: http://kapitano.me.uk/resources.htm Oh, and let me know if you like the design. It's what my s...

Who could forget this one? bVDfmn_TMkI Originally recorded as this: 2KAXvTvO0TI ...but the record company (EMI, I think) weren't too keen on a song about a psychopathic gay teenage boy, or the line "He gave me head". When The Dammed, The Clash, Siouxsie etc covered the song, they invariabl...

I'm trying to come up with a way to sing "Kissing - the only french I know", without it being cringingly crudworthy.

happens every time I do lyrics first. It is possible to turn this to your advantage. Listen to a song, write something to the same chords and rhythm, and the next day come back to it. If you're lucky you'll have forgotten what the original song was - or your recollection will be too vague to recons...

In this week's episode of "Kapitano is an Idiot"... I said to myself, "I'll do something a bit like Depeche Mode's Speak and Spell period, seeing as I've got a new recording setup and I'm not sure how it all works so I want something simple that doesn't need advanced synth programming...

Re: From Asses to Ashes. Are we here yet? (prefight)

A new title tonight would be awesome. Three days later I'm having the same thought. But then I thought...if the point of SongFight is to give you an artificial challenge to spur your writing and recording, there's no reason why you can't provide your own. So here's mine: Take a book, and flip throu...

Re: Let's see who kicks all our......oh...ASHES? (reviews)

The second half of my reviews... MENBAH & Swanpjaw : Nice vocal harmonies. Some more variation in what the guitars play would be good. The drums go too low when the vocals start. Solo's a bit quiet too. The ending is abrupt, but works. Night Society : Very pleasant and restful. Doesn't build at ...

Re: From Asses to Ashes. Are we here yet? (prefight)

I think song layout is one of the least important aspects of composition. The formula I-V-C-V-C-B-C-C is in thousands of rock songs. (I - Intro V - Verse C - Chorus B - Break/Solo) I've never heard anyone complain that every song on an album has the same structure - even though they often do. People...

Sorry people, I've had no time for proper listening or reviews. But here's some quick comments: Berkeley Social Scene : Oddly muffled sound - on all tracks. Bad mic? Vocalist sounds tired. Could use more going on, sounds bare.. Organ or keyboards? Claps would be good :-). Overall impression of a ver...

For a cowboy love song, you need a pardner, pardner.
