Missile Command News
Just wanted to let everyone know two things:
1) We're slowly moving Missile Command's news over to a Wordpress Blog. This will allow all the members to post to it, and more opportunities for our friends to reply. The blog is at http://www.missile-command.net/blog
We've set up an LJ Syndication Service for it, so, please add mchq to your friends list. The blog will be the first place that news will appear from here on out, so, if you're a fan of Missile Command, please add it. If you're finding yourself more on Twitter than LJ, then you can be alerted to new Missile Command blogs, as well as get random Tweets about show times (because we never know until we show up), and other neat things. You can join our Twitter page at http://www.twitter.com/mchq. If you have friends that are fans of Missile Command, spread the word!
2) We're playing on Friday! Hope to see everyone there. This is going to be a fun show, as well as something new for us. For the first time in Missile Commandom, all the members will be on stage for the whole show! Those lazy reprobates have full-time stage jobs now! Also, atsiluth will be bringing his latest project, Fluxion, to town, so make sure to check that shizzle out! Here's a flyer:
3) Go vote for your favorite remix of Missile Command! Voting ends on August 15th!
Although initially intended to be an anonymous thing, the remix contest has turned into a Pimp-Your-Remix contest, so I'm gonna pimp now.
First of all, if you've still never heard our music, you should go to our website and listen already. If you'd like to hear even more, you can go to either our Myspace Page or to my music page, the latter of which includes the track, "FTS Beta 9."
Now for the real pimpin'...~8)
~> Remix #1 of "Sea of Tranquility" was done by yours-truly. I've never done a remix before, and had a LOT of fun doing it! I actually call it "Dawn's Shooting Star Mix," due to the shooting-star like sound throughout the mix. If you like it, please vote for #1.
~> Remix #9 of "Have You Done This Before" was done by tiktiktok. It was also his first time remixing a song. Actually, it was his first time doing ANYTHING with music, and I personally think it's really friggin' cool. He added a lot of sampling and other madness, and made the song his own creation in a lot of ways. Sure, I'm somewhat biased, but really? It's really quirky, creative and cool, and done very, very well. If you like it, vote for #9. It's official remix name is, "No, I've Never Done This Before."
~> Remix #10 of "I Know You," A.K.A. "Define...'Hoe Down,'" was also done by tiktiktok. He got to enjoying this whole music thing, playing and toying, and this one is super-fun, and you should totally listen to the entire thing because it WILL make you laugh! If you like it, please vote for #10.
~> Remix #11 was tiktiktok's final entry into the contest. It's an epic mash-up of both "FTS Beta 9" and "I Know You" entitled "Heliophilia 1-4," and show what an astonishing ear he has for not having done anything with music prior to the three remixes. Not a single one of us Missile Commanders ever considered that "FTS Beta 9" and "I Know You" could be mixed together, let alone that they had literal key relations! I am, of course, flattered that he'd remix a song in which I sang, but most of all, I am in awe of his skills and creativity. If you agree and enjoy it too, please vote for #11.
And that's that! You should really listen to all the remixes. We had so much talent come in, and were thrilled to hear what other people were able to come up with! And pleeeease spread the word! We need to share our music with everyone everywhere and you're key in that endeavor!
The top 3 remixes will be included on the upcoming Missile Command release, "The Future," so please choose wisely! ~8)
Thanks for reading, listening, and for supporting Missile Command!
