Do You Get Tired (of Hating Me)

For the longest time now I have been wanting to do a video album project. Instead of throwing a bunch of songs together and then picking one for a video, I decided to create these tracks and videos as a complete piece. At the end of it all I would like to release the video album under the artist name LID. The completed works will be titled "Life Was Wonderful..."

I decided to fearlessly release the pieces one by one online and compile them later. The first one is the video below titled "Do You Get Tired (of Hating Me)". Originally I had planned on doing a scratch vocal track and having one of my friends redo the vocals, but as I imagined the concept of the video while finishing the track, the scratch seemed to fit.

The concept was of a guy singing through the answering machine of his ex. Somehow I thought that a puppet singing from a room in a hospital added some dark humor to the track and I wanted this comic-like whining tone to his voice as if he was going to cry any moment. I wanted to have fun with the track and video and not take it too seriously as that is the tone I want to take with the completed works.

I thought the piece was funny when I was doing it, but everyone has a different sense of humor. Enjoy.

DJ freeware always raises the question, "What's the catch?"  Usually the catch is that you have to buy some expensive piece of gear to even use the freeware in a gig setting.  Serato DJ Lite fixes that problem by having what they are calling "practice mode". Practice Mode has a cross fader and allows you to bypass needing a breakout box (like you use for the regular version of Serato) to have clean audio out. 

Serato moved some things around a bit and made the user interface a little bit cleaner and user friendly, but the only real improvement from Serato DJ Intro to Serato DJ Lite is the Practice Mode.  I think this program is great for people that are just beginning to learn to DJ, Mobile DJs and for doing small, unique venues where you don't feel like lugging around a bunch of bells and whistles.  With t…
