Okay, money just got a little tighter than I like. (Current flavor of Straw That Broke The Camel's Back: glasses frames snapped.) And I'm not ready for any kind of Kickstarter yet. So: I have lowered the price of EVERY ALBUM AND LIVE SHOW at my Bandcamp site to "Pay What You Want".

This will be at least until St. Patrick's Day, and I will have a couple of new live shows and possibly something else released before then.

If you can help out, many thanks, and I hope you enjoy the music! If you just want to get some music free, now's the time.

Last week, I mentioned Alan Welch, an artist who does some incredible stuff with photo manipulation. Well, one of the things he's done is "Arabian Dreams", a piece inspired by my song "Dervish". I was blown away, flattered and humbled and wow. He asked me to write a couplet to go with it, so I did.

In this spirit, as of this week Pimp Your Stuff Thursday is a permanent feature of this LJ. Get your links ready -- I should have it up by 9:00 a.m. EST.

My forte definitely seems to be web-comics songs.

Even though it Sounds Familiar, I don't recall it being recorded previously. So we'll just call it a Sounds Familiar Special.

Tra-la, tra-la.

I feel kinda weird about posting something so flippant this morning, for obvious reasons... but I'd promised I'd post it, and it was done, and, well.

I have to run some errands (and also see if I can think of another audio joke or two, although I suspect it might be where I want it to be), so I'll have the full posting tonight... but here's a little song that probably
Sounds Familiar....

ETA: Took the link down, as I'm working on the final version. Yeah, there were a few more jokes in there. :)

I had cause to check the iTom page, and found that "marcusdowning", aka "Mr. Sadie of The Dyslexic Studeos", had created a video for "Everything Is Dangerous".

To those of you who have created vids for my music, I thank you so much. I'm flattered beyond belief. But I have to say something, and please understand I'm not slamming or anything, but... could you please make sure that the post incorporates three things?
  • "[song title] © by Tom Smith"
  • a reference to
  • "This song and video are released under a Creative Commons Attribution Noncommercial ShareAlike license"
I don't mean to be a jerk, but I do have to protect myself and my songs. Thanks.

So. Any other cool videos you've seen, or made, lately?

Around ten years ago, Bill Roper wanted to put some of the best songs from my first two tapes on CD. I said sure, with a few exceptions. This is the biggest.

I wanted a studio version of this song, and I was going to do it for Debasement Tapes. Well, yeah. Things happen. But I always knew that when I was finally in a position to start really re-doing those songs, this would be The First.

iTom is back in business. Probably not every single week; that's not the point of it now. But it's the perfect place for new stuff, and for stuff that Sounds Familiar.

Ladies and gentlemen... "Sheep Marketing Ploy".

Audio from last night at Cap. With John "Ol' Chumbucket" Baur and Mark "Cap'n Slappy" Summers. The Pirate Guys.

My life is so cool.

([ profile] kightp, I tried to e-mail this link to you, and it bounced from at least one address. Would you mind sending me a good 'un? Thanks.)

[ profile] hms42 found a fan video created by Dragonkat for Last Exile using "I'm On Firefly". :) I don't know any of the characters, but most seem to match up just fine, and the editing is great.

New iTom

No, not Herbert West, although that's finally coming. No, I just redid "O Yog Sothoth". If you want to compare, the first version I recorded is still here.

New Album

iTom 4.0 is live. And, I tweaked the mix of "Wiki Pirates" (just the very, very end, where I wasn't happy with the way the vocals blended) and recorded some new vocals on the choruses and finale of "Hope Eyrie", so you can get new free versions of those if you like.

Career goal evolution.

And later this evening... the collected iTom 4.0 :)

Thanks, gang.

An old one, actually. I finally got a good live recording of this one, and it certainly is a modern mythology.

They don't call me The World's Fastest Filker for nothin', beeyotch. Thanks to [ profile] hanabishirecca for the name.

Serious question: I'm thinking of changing the title of iTom 4.0 from May I Help You, Myth? to Smith and Legend. It's become a somewhat more personal album, and the last few songs will reflect that even more. Thoughts?
