at least i got a good quality video

davekat popstar au 3/3

davekat humanstuck AU where Dave is a popstar and Karkat is some rando who’s never heard of him. sfw, about 2300 words.

first parts are here and here

Ampora laughs at you. Straight up points a finger and chortles. Dave–Strider, whatever– doesn’t. If anything he looks chagrined.

Yeah, well, maybe he should be, you think savagely. Maybe if his music was better I would have heard it. As if you don’t relentlessly avoid anything considered ‘popular’. Popular shit is for the masses, and the masses are idiots. It’s been scientifically proven.  

You’re too busy hating yourself and the rest of the human race to catch what Dave says to get Ampora to leave, but he does. Dave slumps back against the railing, palming at his eyes and smearing his makeup further. “Dude, chill. It’s not a big deal.”

You will not chill, you will slop the hysteria inside you all over this goddamn balcony.

okay who am I kidding i cannot shut up. at least i’m going to make one bigger post now instead of a million tiny ones. like the good old liveblogging days

  • “sooo Agatha’s trapped in the library” - “this is discrimination!” WHO WROTE THIS I LOVE THE SCRIPT
  • (so apparently we already got to the stage where i’m shouting lots, i apologize in advance for the capslock)
  • this show has some quality hats, shout outs go especially to the weird hat video of Wally and to Gemma’s kinda panda beanie thingie
  • “dub” is such a cute nickname wtf????
  • okay this video doesn’t have subtitles and i’m a little lost i just heard the phrase “potatoes are tubas” but i’m like 86% sure that’s not what Gemma said
  • “comodos always go commando” - “you don’t know that” THESE TWO ARE SO PRECIOUS
  • (also, taking into account this conversation, it might be more likely than i initially thought that Gemma actually said “potatoes are tubas”)
  • dreams? definitely interesting
  • aaaaaand that is Catherine Morland from Northbound
  • gosh i love webseries
  • (also i wanna rewatch northbound because it’s so?? good)
  • does that mean there’s also a chance of Henry Tilney/Anthony Capozzoli aka. Oren’s first boyfriend showing up?? because that would be some Good Shit
  • (i miss that boy’s face and its bone structure)
  • (which sounds intensely weird as i’m becoming slowly aware of now……… but i’ll stand by my word)

The magic of the VCR truly came from having tapes that you’d recorded from TV with several–usually disconnected–movies or shows on them. 

For example, one of my favorite tapes was our Return of the Jedi tape. This tape also had on it the 1980s Annie (with Aileen Quinn and Carol Burnett as Miss Hannigan… best Miss Hannigan in history, imo) and Mary Martin’s Peter Pan. I spent many a Saturday morning glued to the TV and watching them back to back to back, which was a good six hours of programming.

Or our tape with Dumbo on it… Dumbo, which we’d taped from a Wonderful World of Disney that was themed on “it’s what you do with what you’ve got that pays off in the end” (and I only remember that was the theme because there was this ditty between each of the cartoons that had these kewl duudes singing that very thing, all jazzy, over the recap of the cartoon). So we already had Dumbo and Elmer the Elephant and Mickey and the Beanstalk… but then we still had more tape, so that was where my parents recorded a bunch of Christmas specials. I remember I brought the tape into school one holiday season and everyone laughed at me because who in the world brings Dumbo to watch at Christmas?

Of course, the recording multiple things on tape situation could be ugly, too. My favorite movie growing up (and now, tbh) was An American Tail. Our copy had been made for us by my then-uncle Lloyd (a douchebag, as those named Lloyd often are), and one day, when I was watching it, my dad wanted to check the score of the basketball game. He tried to pause the tape and switch to the TV signal, but instead, he managed to record a good 10 seconds of Celtics vs. Bulls, ca. 1989. 

(at least that was during the Larry Bird era?)

Older tapes tended to lose quality. They slowed down or sped up, got all fuzzy and grainy, and were generally a mess. The sound was underwater at times, and the colors would go in and out, but you’d still keep the tape because it was your favorite.

And basically, VCRs and video cassettes were the absolute worst in terms of convenience, but I don’t know anyone my age-ish who doesn’t look on them with some nostalgia.


Cutscene Quality Keyweilders 


SO while I am currently unable to record for the next few days at the very least, I’ve got my eyes on a new project (entirely for kicks and giggles) that’s gonna require some extra help!

I’m looking for 5 FEMALE VOCALISTS with relatively good quality singing chops/microphones/recording setups to fill the roles of the 6 merry murderesses from Chicago’s CELL BLOCK TANGO 

Linked above is a lyrical video for the song in question. The song itself requires more acting than singing, per say, so you will need to be comfortable with some voice acting! Each part has its own small bit of dialogue that requires some hammin’ up to the mic. 

I am NOT currently looking to fill any specific roles, however as I gauge interest I will begin making notes of which parts are still readily available. This project will likely not begin for some time, so consider this an incredibly early casting call!

Reply or reblog this post if you are interested! My inbox can get pretty cluttered, so I want to make sure I don’t miss anybody who is interested by keeping everybody’s information in one place! Thanks in advance!
