Seems reality is getting in the way a bit. I swear this addiction to reality some of you are experiencing is really disturbing. Get help!

8) Affirmative!
I'm so glad we'll be doing this part. It already has me laughing. :roll2:

:evil: Reality bites! It's taking up all my Uke time and WTF time. Not accepatble. :hrmpf:
I plan on recording Friends and my first solo vid this weekend.

Nancy- Do you still plan on bumbumbuming and pinging? I think that will be stellar. :D
You'd have to be deaf to hear that.

I don't have a webcam or an mp3 player, :oops:
so unless someone holds my hand through the tedious process of procuring said cam & mp3 player and assembling it to be youtube ready, I'll have to phone in the bums and pings. :sing: :witsend:

I could probably even fake playing it with Youk, chords are coming pretty easily so far.
Oh, fish-like Lady
Lady-like Fish
I don't think so Bro, she's a Lady, Lady, Lady, Lady
No, no, she's a fish that's just a little bit
La-dy-ish! Yeah!

Great, steph :cheer:

Aw, Nancy; if you know the chords now, you should join proper! Webcams are not too expensive, neither are mp3 players :wink: Go for it! C'mon, c'mon, c'mon *jumps up and down*

I don't use a webcam - I use my digital camera :) I just set it to the little movie camera, press the button I would to take a picture, and record! Then I take out my memory card from the digital camera, pop it into my computer (but some computers can't do this, so if you can't, I'd get the USB/camera cord that should have come with the digital camera and plug THAT in to your computer/camera) and upload it to my computer!

Biscuit's MovieMaker tutorial should take over from there because I'm a MovieMaker newb ;)

That's clever :D I never thought to do that. Maybe I'll get better audio with my camera than my computer? :hrm:

I just worked for ONE HOUR trying to get this to come out. Either I started singing the wrong part, or I went flat, or I forgot to sing one of my parts, or I did the wrong chord.

UGH.

I'm SO done with it right now.

I need a drink :drinkers:

I'm having a terrible day. Computer is wonky....cable guy came and replaced modem but it's still wonky....another cable guy on the phone- so nice- gave me some advice and is calling me back later.

My uke is supposed to be here today and it's NOT. :( I know...it's only 4.....only?? I want it TODAY!! :cry:

Kelly- I'll join you in that drink.

BUT....thinking of you guys doing this song makes me smile. :D

*passes drinks all around*

I got so close on one of them - but the camera's memory card got full RIGHT AFTER the final "la" of the song (right before the 'ping' part)

:bang:

Thanks for the suggestion, Kelly. I'm not sure if mine will let me do that - I usually have to hold the button down to record, but I'll give it a try. *remembers camera is being wonky* Come on camera, play along here! :whip:
Real life is going to get in the way tomorrow, but hopefully this weekend I can give it a try.
