Bloggaday 167 – TAWR 1point2
Tom: Hello again, Bloggaday Reader. I am still Tom from the SotW and with me again is Bloggaday author, David Dysart
David: Thanks, Tom. I look forward to jumping right into the songs.
Tom: David, if you want to the host, you can just tell me.
David: I’m sorry; I didn’t mean to offend you.
Tom: It’s no problem. Let’s just talk about JoCo’s first 4 songs of TAW.
David: Sounds great. What’s the first one we’ve got?
Tom: Well, first up, we have… “See You All in Hell.”
David: Oh, yeeeaahhh. I’ve got no idea what was going on with that song.
Tom: According to JoCo’s website, apparently it was from a series of texts from a TV Producer.
Tom: Yeah. Then he put the music together with loops from Soundtrack.
David: You know what, I wasn’t that impressed with it. I ended up deleting itfrom iTunes. It was kind of depressing though that that was how he opened. I’ve really liked almost everything else I’ve heard in the Thing a Week.
Tom: Should we move onto the 2nd song then?
David: Sure, what do we have next?
Tom: Actually, it’s a little diddy known as “My Monkey.”
David: Ah, see? That’s just a really good song.
Tom: Since you didn’t even keep the first song, I didn’t ask you how many stars you gave it. What about this one though?
David: You know what, I gave this one 5 stars and put it in my 5.2 playlist, the current upper echelon of the 5 starers.
David: Yeah. It’ll probably get bumped down in a little while once I get tired of it, but I’ve been liking it lately.
Tom: Okay, I have another question for you. Have you heard the Wil Wheaton version yet?
David: Oh, yeah. I actually saw the clip on Youtube before I even heard the original version of the song. I think that actually helped boost it as high as it ended up going.*
Tom: So I think we’ve agreed on that one. Good stuff, good stuff. What about the third song though? “W’s Duty.”
David: Oh, this was another song I hated.
Tom: Ha, why?
David: I don’t know. It was juvenile and silly, but not in a good way. It was just kind of stupid, and it wasn’t funny. The music wasn’t very accommodating either though.
Tom: So there weren’t any redeeming qualities at all?
David: I hate to say it, but not really. I deleted it too.
Tom: Wow, king of a rough starting month, huh?
David: Yeah. I haven’t deleted any other songs yet, and I really don’t plan on it.
Tom: So it was just a fluke?
David: You know what? I think so. I’m just thankful that I had heard JoCo before. I might not have continued to listen otherwise.
David: Yeah, but I knew he had good song, so I kept going and found them. I mean I’m already picking up on my favorite songs like “You Could be Her,” “Chiron Beta Prime,” “Creepy Doll,” and “Big Bad World One.” Of course there are others, but I won’t be talking about these ones for a while.
Tom: Well, before we start winding down, we have one more song to talk about.
David: Oh, yeah, I’m sorry. What’s the last one?
Tom: Week 4 brought us “Shop Vac.”
David: Tsh. That’s a hard one.
David: Well, I like it, and it’s a really solid song. I gave it 3 stars, but I think there’s a good chance that I’ll take more of a shine to it once I hear it a few more times.
Tom: Ah, so it’s kind of a sleeper song, eh?
David: You know what, it might be. We’ll just have to wait and see.
Tom: Well, be sure to keep me updated.
David: Don’t worry I will.
Tom: I was afraid of that.
Tom: From all of us here at TAWR and the Bloggaday, I would like to thank you for linking in. Have a great day and don’t forget to tune in next week my co-host from the SotW interviews David about month two of Thing a Week.
Mantracker and JoCo

* Here is an excerpt from the original writup form the song: I do have to say though, finding Wil Wheaton’s name was pain in the wanker. I thought his first name was Wes and his last name was Whedon, like Joss Whedon. I wasn’t getting wifi where I was, so I was trying to find it on my iPhone, but it just wasn’t working.
** What exactly did you mean by that?***
*** Ha, last word again
