Oh hey, it's me, doing folk for a change.


Backstory: my violin player, Jordan, is also a professional cinematographer. On the coldest day of the year, he came down to record with 30 minutes until the sunset, and we shot this video and one other in one take each. Not thrilled with the sound because we didn't have time to set up anything more than a one-mic setup, but ah well - it's pretty.

Cleaned out the garage yesterday, working on making a usable recording space. Kinda cold.


Working 9 days straight at two different jobs, wheeeeeee

Someone likes homage endings to songs :)

Wonderful video flac! I love the picking, your voice is lovely, as always and the scene is fantastic. It matches the theme/feel of the song well.

I think the sound is great.

You're a very talented person flac. I expect great things from you.

Got to agree with everything he said here, flac, it's really beautiful and deserves more thumbs-up on Youtube. Can I marry your voice?

TNG: Why is there so many talented musicians on Hubski? Did y'all originally promote the site on music boards or something. Does everybody else sing semi-professionally and I'm literally the exception and if so ... can you teach me?

<3 I'll check the laws for voice marriage and get back to you.

I'm not sure why there are so many artists on hubski. I suppose it might have to do with the fact that mk and I are both artists and perhaps, as such, we seeded the community with the like. But perhaps, when you create a site dedicated to thoughtful discussion it tends to attract some for people who, perhaps, tend to be artists.

Significant amount of creative people on here, but each unique in their own way. It's really a credit to you both that you've built something that attracts such diverse content, something I hope to be adding more to shortly ;).

Thank you for saying so. You're a part of it! It's not the place, it's the people. We just gave the snow ball a nudge, it gained it's own momentum and picked up people along the way. Some great people have walked these halls. Some have stayed throughout, others come and go and some have outright left for good.

There have been great moments. Sad moments. I always think of littlebirdie as one of the saddest moments in Hubski history. She was a phenomenal addition to the community. A beautiful writer/poet and a kind soul. She got doxed by a bunch of redditors for spending time on Hubski. It was awful. I felt awful for her. I hope that some day she will return. Hubski is a much mellower place these days.

I digress.

Glad you're here Cedar. You're awesome. Thanks for the compliments and the trip down memory lane.

Thanks, Steve - I expect them too (if I can just finish a freaking album...)

thenewgreen  ·  326 days ago  ·  link  ·  

Albums are never "finished," you just decide to stop. You'll see.

That's what I like about sewing: there is a clear point at which, really, you can't add any more buttons or hem any more edges. Much more finite.

I'd say theres maybe a week more mixing to do, and one more track to record. So close. So far. The good news is that I've been working on this since august and I don't hate the music yet

I'm impressed, good job on the guitar work too. The audio sounds more than fine to me. :)

flac  ·  326 days ago  ·  link  ·

Fucking amazing video. Really well done.

    Working 9 days straight at two different jobs, wheeeeeee

Did you get the job at the crafts bar? Please say yes.

flac  ·  326 days ago  ·  link  ·  

Noooo :( haven't heard anything from them, and I can't find any contact info to follow up with them.

rd95  ·  326 days ago  ·  link  ·  

Aw. That's a shame. You should totally keep your eyes open for similar gigs though. I think you'd ace them.
