zero effort? so writing and recording an album with 3 other artists in 8 hours is zero effort?
looks like there's another new album coming. it's going to be written and recorded (or maybe just recorded?) in 8 hours.lol i wanted to comment on it but eh, i mean, same old same zero effort thing she's going to invent ridiculous 5000$ bundles for.
check your e-mail for the real info.
While I do
think Sylvia might have been engaging in a bit of hyperbole....
Yeah, writing and recording an album with three other artists in eight hours [pause, catch breath]...
...doesn't compare terribly well to writing and recording an album with three other artists in, say 8 weeks
Sure, there's the unrefined raw creative intangible that can only come from brainstorming and short deadlines....
...but there's also the lack of craftsmanship that comes from not having time to refine ideas through extended
cooperative process, or do the technical detail work that produces a technically-sound work.
It's a stunt, and it's gotten to the point that it's just another
I mean, I'll be in line (although not the first
in line) to buy if, by some chance, the conjunction of so many creative
minds actually yields something that is, on its own merit, noteworthy... but I'm no longer excited simply by the notion
of Amanda doing something (-else) wacky and off-the-cuff. (And Amanda, if you're reading, you're in good company - I've never been terribly impressed by most of the crap that Picasso scribbled on dinner-napkins either.)
[Edit: reading back over that, it sounded a lot bitchier than I intended... I'll be happier when
Amanda takes the time to create a fully-crafted song/EP/album, but there's nothing wrong with
having fun and doing improv/"ninja"/shits&grins projects until she's ready to spend a lot of time
and effort on something more involved... particularly for charitable causes as she's been doing.
My apologies for the tone.]
