So recently I came across the Microsoft Education Competencies page for Humor. They couldn't make a more joyless guide to funny if they tried. It's hard to read it without hearing it in your head with one of those synthetic text-to-speech voices. It's how I imagine one robot teaching another to tell jokes would phrase things.
So, with a little help from Xtranormal.com, I've brought my idea to "life". With robots.
I call it "Teach Me To Laugh Like An Actual Person".
Well, apparently because I felt the need to prove myself wrong, I've come up with a reasonable proto version of the DFC song "Cut You Out" on iNudge (video posted above).
It's more or less open source, so if you come up with a cute mix, post a link to it in the comment section!
How About You iNudge Me Over A PBR, All Of A Sudden It's A Hipster Electro Dance Party Up In This Bitch.
Not sure how old this update is, so apologies if I'm behind the curve, but they've recently added features to the online sequencer widget iNudge where you can make extended songs by adding matrices. Was going to try to replicate some Destroyed For Comfort songs, but none of them seem to be in the appropriate key, so I decided to crank out a few electro-hipster jams. iNudge, strangely enough, seems to be incredibly well suited for that. So break out the cooler and click on the Pabst Blue Ribbon cans below to check out what I made.
Admin Note: Shortly after posting this, I managed to cook up a reasonable version of a DFC song. Shows what I know.
