Traveled up to the Bay Area this weekend to record vocals for a cover song Blaqk Audio is doing for a Love and Rockets tribute album. Adam was nice enough to come over and join us for backing vocals. 
Then spent 7 hours in my hotel room editing and mixing.
Also had tofu and brown rice with Smith.
Has anyone noticed that when you start up a Macbook it plays the first chord of "Nothing Compares 2 U" by Sinead O'Connor?

I've never had tofu and brown rice with Smith. What does Smith taste like, and does it complement the nutty flavor of the rice?

Woah, that shoud be great! Tofu and rice is nice. 7 hours of editing and mixing? I'm not surprised you're noticing those kinds of things. I kinda like that you're a perfectionist though, it works for you. Its admirable how much attention you pay to detail. Have you ever noticed......nope, I got nothing.

Yes! A new BA song/cover :]
Yum, tofu :] Brown rice's a no-go for me though.
Nah. Don't got a Macbook.
Hope you're well :]

cilliii said...

New blaqk audio design?? That one's great.

If this cover songs like the AFI cover songs you guys did in the last couple of years, I'll like it more than the original songs. True story, I prefer your version somehow every time. ôO

Tofu with brown rice... sounds yummie.. In case I would not just have eaten, I would go get some now. :)

It's been seven hours and fifteen days.

Oooh Bay Area ^_^ I send you good vibes.

I have a Powerbook, not a Macbook, so I couldn't really tell you... I do know that all Macs sing the triumphant starting-up noise of greatness, though.

DeniBurganCarson said...

OMFG, I think you read my mind on the Love and Rockets cover idea.
Are guys Alive Oh Oh So Alive?

My head is full of magic, baby
And I can share this with you
The feel I'm on top again, baby
That's got everything to do with you.

Oh shit you're right! I always thought it was saying "Duh".

Crimson Butterfly said...

wtf that sounds cool

OneCoolNerd said...

Oh my gosh! I never noticed that...but you're right. I always do a tada when I turn my Mac on. I've got an iBook G4 though...so I guess I'm just uncool. =]

Can't wait to hear the song. Will it be on iTunes?

meb wannabe said...

you say such things, jade

all i can think about now is silky, lovely, fresh, tender tofu... while snoopy dancing blaqk audio around in my non-mac computer... which i am lucky started at all, because it didn't want to... fu...

but i do want tofu

oooh, it's all your fault that i am found falling through fault lines here... see what i mean?

good to know about you :) XO

ThisSideUp said...

You must have amazing tolerance; I would have some serious cabin fever if I stayed in a hotel room for 7 hours... When can we hear this song? I'm excited!

I have not noticed that, but I'm too lazy to go downstairs and turn on the Mac just to hear the startup noise. Maybe if I had better incentive...

Silly Girls Win said...

yayyyy, blaqk audioooo

lol no i didn't notice

elaine. said...

oh dude, i'd like to hear adam on backing vox.

the bay area is the best. i'll never leave this place, even if i have to live in a trailer, not that i do, but i'm just proposing a scenario.

Jeff said...

That's now officially the only thing I'll be able to think about when I hear that song, haha.

propelwave said...

yay!! happy to hear that you've gotten some work done on Balqk Audio songs!!

Karlye said...

OOOOOOOOOOOh, AWWWWWWWW. That's pretty awesome. I like that design a lot.

Definitely can't wait to hear that.

Remember to relax every now and then. Even if that means playing video games. Lol.

GVB said...

I can't wait to hear the song, and I love the song "Nothing Compares 2 U"! (I just restarted my Mac and you are so right about the first note!)

MJ said...

If I had a Macbook, I might notice that. I'm saving up for one, though.

And YAY FOR BLAQK AUDIO COVER SONG. Excitement. <3

Anonymous said...

YAY for more Blaqk Audio covering Love and Rockets! "Mirror People", maybe? Never noticed the Macbook thing, but MTA subways play the first 3 notes of "Somewhere" from WEST SIDE STORY. I've have noticed that. Cheers!

I don't use a Mac.

VS said...

So you and I blogged/twittered about Sinade O'conner at almost the exact same time. Creepy shit.

kirstie said...

Sounds like fun! Hooray for macs!

<3

Ebon said...

Maybe Steve Jobs is having Sinead O' Reblion against the PC industry with that. But I do notice it too. And yeah vegan or noti can't see how anyone can eat Tofu, am I the only one it makes gag in the world if its not cooked right?

mistilyork said...

I think that is so awesome that you guys are covering Love & Rockets. I know it be amazing! Thanks for all the updates. Jade, you're greaaaaaaat! :)

Anonymous said...

lezah said...

Blaqk Audio + Adam + Smith + tofu and brown rice = hella awesome.

Hah, if only I was on my own computer. My little blogger avatar thing is a tofu. :P

Anonymous said...

Good to hear-(except the brown rice and tofu,way too bland without a sauce m'dear) as you have the lap top be a sweetie and pop by the BA myspace and update the banner as we mere mortals can't get to april 6 2008 for a gig

I've got my bet placed on either So Alive or No New Tale to Tell. Either way, I'm psyched!

Emme said...

j-boo said...

THIS makes me SO happy, I cannot even begin to tell you!

MORE Blaqk Audio, more, more, more ... please!!!!!

Glass Spider Webs said...

I had to turn off my computer to see if your theory was correct.
Its very close, I think I may have to check a few more times.

My friend gave me the new maroon five cd a while ago.. I do not know why... the first thing I noticed though was that their song called "Not falling apart" has the same intro as "every breath you take" by the police.

earthcharms said...

Love & Rockets tribute album? *headexplode*

...This is an old post. I need to get into the present...

Where can you actually buy that!? Though there's something deeply dirty about Davey singing a song that isn't actually sexual (that I know of...) and someone needs to tell him he sounds a lot like Daniel Ash in the first place
