More fiddling with the digital recorder

I rerecorded the Interrobang Cartel song Pumpkin, Mrs. Farnsworth today using the new digital recorder referred to previously. (I also used my Mac for some things -- I started writing a long, tedious description of how I recorded the thing but it started to bore even me so I decided to give it a miss. You can thank me later.) The nose flute solo was wrestled into shape using some samples provided by Mr. Jeremy Impson.

I'm not sure if I like it better than my earlier, more bare-bones version, not to mention CB's version, but it's certainly different.

One thing about this version of the song: Even though I added an extra verse for the NOSE FLUTE SOLO, it's still thirteen seconds shorter than my previous version, which itself weighed in at a paltry 66 seconds.

I had to speed it up to match up with the AWESUM NOSE FLUTE SOLO, so it was worth it, even though I no longer have any fingers. (Depending on how many beats you think a measure have, and where you think the measures begin and end, this version of "Pumpkin, Mrs. Farnsworth" clocks in at either 165 or 330 beats per minute, either of which is pretty respectable, I think.)

Anyway, I'm proud to AFFIRM that I am not a SLAVE to the FOUR-MINUTE POP SONG FORMAT.

And now that I'm typing in all caps I should probably go to bed.
