Brent will pay OB to video himself singing. (in Public Record)
February 2 2008 6:15 PM EST
<Brent> OB, I will give you $20 if you record a video of yourself singing "I'm So Sick".
<OddBird> really. $20, eh?
<Brent> Yes, sir.
* OddBird now has to get his friend to let him borrow his Xbox360.
<Brent> Make a PR thread if you're serious, and I'll hold my end of the bargain.
<OddBird> Cool, I'll do it.
I just have to get a tape recorder and usage of an Xbox360. :) Hopefully he'll come down from Auburn this weekend and I can do it then...anywho, here's the PR, Brent. =0)
February 2 2008 6:18 PM EST
Just for the record, you need to record a semi-decent quality video (read: the quality should be good enough so that I'm not looking at black shadows the entire time).
Also, the song should be sung ala Rock Band microphone. "I'm So Sick" by Flyleaf.
February 2 2008 6:20 PM EST
Oh, and friends are welcome to join your video, playing guitar, bass, and/or drums, but you need to be heard.
Film editing/zooming is encouraged, but not required. :)
February 2 2008 6:21 PM EST
hehe... what they're not telling you is that SNK is now OB's agent, and will sell the video for profit. Seriously... Who wouldn't pay 250k for a ticket to see OB sing "I'm so sick"? :P
February 2 2008 6:27 PM EST
That's no problem.
Can't wait to play Rock Band for the first time. :)
February 2 2008 6:37 PM EST
I'm contemplating paying $30 for you to NOT record a video of you singing...
February 2 2008 6:41 PM EST
I'm paying $5 more for him to sing in the higher-register (ala the same register as the female vocalist) and he'll also wear a pirate wig (outfit).
Total of $25.
February 2 2008 6:42 PM EST
Bam. I'll own it. Pirate wig and all.
February 2 2008 6:48 PM EST
Remember the Mushu pic OB. This video will never ever go away...
February 2 2008 9:29 PM EST
hehe the things we'd do for money :)
February 2 2008 9:35 PM EST
This is the best PR thread ever. OB, you sir, are awesome.
This I got to see. Will it be available to watch??
February 3 2008 1:12 AM EST
woo, flyleaf, you mean screaming female vocals? :)
In the hotpants? Or are there no wardrobe requirements?
is it going to be on youtube or something? am I welcomed to dl a copy? can I keep it? I will pay 20k cb money for a copy. seriously.
February 3 2008 10:40 AM EST
Only 20k? I'm hurt.
Bast, I'm going to be so costumed up that I can't be recognized. No way am I showing my face on the net (likely YouTube, by the time this ends) wearing anything where I would be recognizable.
considering I have a futures forge contract to pay and 9m in debt, 20k is very generous.
Well now... I'm surprised I didn't hear about this earlier... I will give you 250k for an illegal bootleg copy of this when it is done ^_~
Oh and singing Flyleaf isn't that hard on Rockband... its playing the drums on any difficulty other than medium for this song thats the pain... and yes... Expert Guitar is easy for this song if you play bass ^_^
February 5 2008 12:29 PM EST
February 5 2008 5:09 PM EST
DrAcO, if you really think difficulty is the point of this doing, you should seriously reconsider reading the thread again.
February 5 2008 5:35 PM EST
Yeah. The point is for Brent to have an awesome video of me singing to Flyleaf to fantasi...er, to watch every once in a bit and have a laugh about. =)
But I'm not going to be recognizable, so it doesn't matter to me. Free money! :D
Oh yeah, and I'm going to own this song.
February 11 2008 5:19 PM EST
Chicken out yet? :P
February 11 2008 10:17 PM EST
Not chickening, just waiting for a 360 and a rock band game to come available. And no, I'm not doing this a capella for you. ~_^
February 11 2008 10:50 PM EST
"i'm-a gonna do this one for ya a capella, that means i'm-a gonna do it with my hat-on"
February 11 2008 11:36 PM EST
xD Rofl this should be amusing...
February 12 2008 12:04 AM EST
You suck for not doing this a capella-style. What, decide that you CAN'T sing? :)
February 12 2008 12:26 AM EST
Well you weren't offering the mandatory $75. *grins*
It's a matter of principle.
February 12 2008 10:23 AM EST
Says the guy who claims he can sing everything. =\
February 13 2008 1:27 AM EST
Aww, that's not true, you misinterpreted me. I can't sing everything, I can just sing everything better than -YOU-.
February 13 2008 1:34 AM EST
/me sang "Stayin' alive" at karaoke last Friday night...
Didn't know I could get my voice that high without a vicegrip...
February 13 2008 1:38 AM EST
OB, that almost sounds like a challenge. If I didn't know better, I'd challenge you to a Rock Band duel and out-sing you. But, since I'm a nice guy, we'll just let Mr. I-Can-Sing-Everything have a go and make that video that he's chickening out on. :P
February 13 2008 11:49 AM EST
I'm afraid a challenge is no good...while it would be satisfying to sing you into the ground, my main motivation here is $25.
Therefore: Any sing-offs against OB incur a $25 attempt fee, along with the loss of one's pride.
February 13 2008 12:18 PM EST
Since you're not doing the a capella, it's down to $20.
February 13 2008 12:30 PM EST
Ooooh, Brent's backing down from his original deal. ;)
Fine then, no wardrobe!
February 13 2008 12:31 PM EST
No wardrobe? Does that mean you're doing it...
February 13 2008 12:35 PM EST
Nah, that'd be -more- money, not less. It means I'm not going to dress up and look awesome while I sing. Probably more of a 'standing there with my back turned to the camera' deal.
February 13 2008 1:09 PM EST
gahaha...this pr thread delivers. never thought id say that
February 17 2008 5:11 PM EST
I raise you $5 more for the costume (and camera on you, not your back). $25 total, without the cool a capella.
February 18 2008 1:19 AM EST
Good, that's back to par. :D
Side note: My friend came down today, but did not bring his 360. He took her mustang, and said that with all his luggage + his fiance's, he didn't have room for it. Which sucks. I may have to drive a couple hours and go visit him just so I can do this...
Why do you need an xbox? Just play an mp3 from your computer.
February 18 2008 1:31 AM EST
1) I have no MP3 of this song
2) He wants me to do it through the Rock Band game for 360.
February 18 2008 2:03 AM EST
Thanks NS! Got that video downloading now....
wow, female screaming is going to be difficult. :)
Yes, after watching the video, I was a little curious as to why you are doing a rendition of a female part. I'm somewhat reminded of the advice that John Travolta gave The Rock in Be Cool.
