Sing, Sing a Song Saturday

Sing, Sing a Song Saturday is all about me discovering something that is different. I don't want to post things that you and I have more than likely heard before. I want to find something different. It could be from another country, someone singing from the streets of NY, and more.

This week I ran across an interesting animation. The animation is created at the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw by motion designer: Daniel Marciniak. It takes place in a white room. There are just black lines that form throughout the video.

This is a screen shot from the video below.
Death Grips is the band. The electronic music certainly adds to the video. With the lines and music combination, they really make the white room feel like it's moving.

Death Grips is an experimental hip hop group from Sacramento, California, formed in 2010. The group consists of rapper Stefan Burnett, drummer Zach Hill, and producer Andy Morin.

The music is heavier than what I usually listen to. I'm willing to give anything a try. It's more my husband's taste. In many cases the singer screams. There is cussing in their music that has lyrics mixed in. I'll save your ears, and just post the one that has no lyrics. There is a raw quality about the music that's interesting. It almost sounds tribal.

Check out animator Daniel Marciniak's work.

Random Tid Bits

  1. A few months back I mentioned on one of these Random Tid Bits posts that Miss Teen Nebraska had disappeared. Her parents went through Facebook trying to get her back. No one knew if she was a run away, or kidnapped. Once people found out that she was a run away, instead of being happy that she was found, people were going on and on that her title and crown should be taken away. She couldn't go home because she threatened to run away from home again.

  2. I was always interested in the case. Something didn't seem right. She volunteered for all kinds of things. Her brother has a rare protein deficiency that she helped raise money for. Why would she just go missing? I'd checked her page once in awhile to see if there was an update.

    She had an MRI and they found out that she has a tumor on her brain. Now's the time I want to say to everyone that wanted to take her title away, and made mean comments on Facebook that they really should understand the whole situation before saying crap like that. Tumors on the brain will make people not be themselves. This poor family has one child that can't eat much of anything, without throwing up, and another one that ran away, people thought the worst of them, and now they found out that she has a tumor on her on her brain. I'm sure they are scared about the tumor, yet relived to finally understand why their daughter is acting the way she's been acting.

  3. I've been thinking about how we as adults enforce that our children get along with others. "Share honey!" we say. Then it's interesting that as adults we sometimes don't get along. Families break up over something that could have been solved. People fight over different religious, or political beliefs. It's just so sad that we can't share, and get along. Even the words (please, thank you, and you're welcome) that we first teach children to say, are sometimes not said by adults. Do some people forget how to get along? Maybe they just too proud to admit they are wrong. What do you think?

  4. What sounds annoy you? There's 3 that get on my nerves. A) Dogs barking. We have 2 neighbors that have barking dogs. I just want to go outside, and hear birds chirping. B) Whistling while I'm trying to work. It might just be because I've never been able to whistle myself, or it could be that I'm trying to concentrate, and can't because there's that distraction. C) When Mica gets on a sound effect roll. He doesn't know when to stop. Isaak makes sound effects to, but it's not like Mica. 

  5. Sleep is wonderful! I haven't been sleeping much this week. Daddy has been working a lot. 2 of his co-workers are out of town, his boss hasn't bought supplies to make the job go faster, and his boss miscast some of the work he did. He is also trying to get work done at home, so he can take sculpture molds down to Kansas City to be cast. It's like I'm a single parent. I miss sleep.  

  6. Ending on a happy note: I'm happy because the boys have been so good so far this summer. They really have been.

What Are Little Boys Made of?

Of course I never really bought into that saying. Girls came home from camp that day looking the same way.

Mica's went to Hummel Day Camp last week.

It's a camp geared toward wearing them out, and having fun!

I love it because it's only $95 for the week. That includes food and transportation.

I learned from last year that they come home wore out, and dirty. They go hiking, have archery, build fires, have water and mud fights, and go down a mud slide.

The photo above is from the day he was doing the mud slide.

I said, "Mica as soon as we get home I want you to take all your clothes off and put them in the washer. That includes your shoes. Then go take a bath."

He said, "Mom I don't need a bath!"

I said, "Mica you need a bath. If you could only see yourself."

Isaak said, "Ummm...ya Mica you need a bath!"

He couldn't get his socks off. They were mud pasted to his feet. His socks were white. His white underwear is now tan to. His shoes, well they used to be cool. I made him wear those because they were the most used shoes he had. I bought old shorts at the Goodwill. He doesn't have old things since he's my 1st child. I'll save this stuff and Isaak can use it when he goes to the same camp. I'm sure Mica is going to get sick and tired of these clothes. He's going to wear them every day this week. Later in July he goes to this same camp again with his cousin's school, and will wear those clothes that week to. No matter how they are washed they'll still get more and more tan.

He's having fun, and that's what I love!
