in hitRECord Tiny Chat (here), RECorders Metaphorest, Attilee, Fractaldust, and Phenomenaaa came up with the idea of a collaboration that houses all of hitRECord’s longer text RECords.
We all know that hitRECord, and the world in general, does not have a large attention span for text RECords in general, but particularly longer ones. However, these are some astounding pieces of art that deserve credit. And written RECords are some of the easiest to REmix because they can be interpreted in so many ways.
So please, take a little bit of time out of your day (none of them are terribly long either) and REad some of these things. RECommend them. REmix them.
lmf. the world’s tiniest gif. of myself. be jealous.
this just happened. awesome. ..skdjgbdkjg AWESOME.
also i’m posting this because i finally just contributed to the sTiTchTown collab and it feels goooood. here’s a link. it’s nothing HUGE and AMAZABALLS, but i’ve grown rather attached to the Ruby Button character, so i decided to ramble about her. yeah.
The purpose of this collaboration is to create RECords that are 30 SEConds or less in length.
Condensing ideas, themes, and concepts into such a short amount of time can be very challenging for artists, but often it turns out to be a great exercise to try and condense complex thoughts into concise presentations.
Please refer to the video intro to this collaboration for specific details, but in the meantime I’ve come up with a short list of ideas for this collab:
1. Present a Theme 2. Show a Process 3.Show How You Feel 4. Describe Something 5. Tell a Story 6. Present an Abstract Idea or Concept 7. Propose an Open-Ended Question 8. Answer an Open-Ended Question 9. REmix a RECord
The SOURCE link will bring you to the intro video that explains the collab in greater detail.
The Teafaerie posted the most beautiful RECords over at hitRECord recently. I will link them at the end of this.
I read/watched them expecting to feel a lot — expecting to tear up, or maybe cry; expecting to feel a sadness I can’t completely understand; expecting to feel like I wish I could just give you a fucking hug. And I did. But there was more. I watched the video, saw her careful hands, heard her beautiful voice and lost myself in every word that was said. It wasn’t just silent tears or little tears.
It was a real kind of crying.
My breath caught in my throat. I cried like I could never stop — tears on an infinite repeat. My chest was heaving up and down trying to catch up with everything that I was feeling.
My body became suddenly too overwhelmed with everything. Everything I was feeling and everything I wasn’t. Everything I’d ever felt — everything I couldn’t. All the love I’ve ever cradled in arms and all the love that broke me and all the love I shoved aside. The love I’ve given and received back tenfold; the love I’ve given and received back no-fold. Everyone I’ve loved, everyone I haven’t… Everyone I do. Like I was feeling everything for the first time. I am feeling everything for the first time.
you wanted to see my little old lady hands to put your little old man hands around them like a temple
I was, and still am, falling apart to a love that I’ve never witnessed before, but am suddenly seeing everywhere around me. I can hear it, I can see it, I can feel it. I am feeling it. My heart is beating. For the first time.
