As you can see guys and gals i’m a photoshop ninja, give me a project and i’ll make it happen, you want a dorky kid to look like a jackalope? no problem, you want ferns cut out in 2 minutes using an eraser at 48px? no problem, rocking CS3 over here and using it to about 1/1000th of its potential, don’t blame Scott or Alex for the bad design work here please hah.
So, yes thats me above, I did this mix of some songs for The Mixtape Club that were all at 94 Beats Per Minute, a short mix that is only clocking in at about 34 minutes. I named it The Black Bear Caught The Crystal Deer Surfing With A Pitchfork because all the hip bands have some key words in their names. You see if your band was Flamingo Fantasy you probably won’t get much love, maybe in 2014 when flamingos get really cool but for now you better have a surfing bear or make noise and use the word hair in your band name, that way you can take cuts and get on some reviewers priority piles. Well enough with my banter, here are some great songs that I have posted already probably in the past month or so that I like as a collective, as always thanks for reading and listening to the material on the blog.
