Crop of the cover to Marvin Gaye's "What's Going On" album for remix post.

A few years ago I came across mono multi-tracks for the Marvin Gaye classic “What’s Going On” and decided to make my own remix of it. I spent a few days on-and-off mixing it and adding reverb and compression before I finally arrived at a sound I liked.

I have posted this here before (about a year or two ago) but I decided to dive back into Audition and re-export it as a newer higher quality file with a tighter mix.

I originally put it together back in 2011. My post from the other day of the Apollo/David Bowie video I edited got me thinking about other stuff I have done for fun over the years. (And that’s why I’m posting this today.) Expect some more posts to come over the next little while as I locate more old crap I’ve done.

You can listen to the remix below! (Or download. Whatever ya wanna do.)

You can purchase the original version here: Amazon – iTunes.

apollo-launch-FORPOST-SIDEWAYS-800

A few years ago I decided to answer the long-asked question “what would happen if you synced Apollo launch footage with David Bowie’s ‘Life on Mars?’

Don’t you even try to deny it, because I know you’ve asked question that at least once in your life.

You haven’t? Oh..

Well, anyway, it turns out it looks pretty neat.

The original version of the video was cut back in 2011. This one, posted here, is a re-cut I made this month. The old version didn’t flow in certain spots, so I decided to touch it up a bit. The 16mm launch footage is a mixture of the Apollo 8, 11, and 12 missions.

Watch for volume at the start, and be sure to full screen it!

It’s been, give or take, four-ish months since I graduated from the Broadcast Journalism program at Fanshawe, and since then, I’ve been combing through some of my old projects and assignments looking for things to post here.

At some point the other day it dawned on me that I hadn’t uploaded all of my “In Your Backyard” pieces to SoundCloud, even though it had been months and months since I had made them and had them broadcast them on-air.

had been uploading them regularly onto my account late last year, but somewhere along the way I ran out of free available minutes and was forced to stop. A shame. A travesty!

Well, ok, maybe not a travesty.

So anyway, about a month or two ago I sprung for a pro account on the website, bumping my available time up to 6 hours.

I could finally upload the rest! (Seriously, just 6 hours? C’mon guys. I’m paying $6 a month here..)

Below, in chronological order (by week of airing) are almost all the short docs I did for “In Your Backyard” (a current affairs show on the X) excluding a few which I didn’t like at the time, and still don’t today.

Hey there! Long time no post. Been busy with other things and haven’t really been in the mood or had the time to post on here (which is a shame because I pay for hosting.. I should get on that..)

Anyway, I started putting together this episode a few weeks ago or so, maybe end of May, beginning of June, with the voiceover finished and edited.. So you can see it’s taken a while. I haven’t been feeling the best lately, and it’s been hampering my interest in working on these podcasts as well as other things like my photography and reading. Some kind of funk I guess, I’m not sure.

I’ll get back into the groove soon, don’t worry!

Anyways, I had a few free hours the other day and figured I would finally finish off what I started. So here it is!
