"Record Producer from Dimension X"
« on: June 12, 2005, 06:30:27 pm »

Hi, I've posted here for a while but my account got zotzed due to a  misunderstanding. Neutral

I've written a novel called "Record Producer from Dimension X." It's a satire of the music business. There are so many things to make fun of that it practically wrote itself. Cool

I've made a website for it. I'm going to post 3 chapters a week, so I can get comments & criticism and see if it generates any buzz. I don't know if it's publishable, so for now it's just for fun.

Here's the website: Record Producer from Dimension X

Why? Did you combined the two forbidden words? I see where you are going to with it, but I would say this thread may self-destruct by June 21st...

What I've read so far... don't get too technical with it so you can appeal a broader audience.

Thanks. Good advice. I'm going to try to streamline that stuff in subsequent chapters. Writing concisely is haaaaard.  Razz

I borrowed his "recording diary" idea, but otherwise there's not much resemblance.

Confused

ummmm blenderman.

it's a total rip off.

haha.

but its good. especially the mastering stuff, nibnob, etc.

I do like it. nice reference to the Saint. haha. classic.

but, ya got to finish. the last thing people want is to be waiting for new installments every week. we need daily updates. I printed it, read it, and wanted more and was irritated there wasnt more.

It started off as a kind of, ermmm, homage.  Very Happy  I could have changed "Blenderman" to some other name, but it's more fun with all the inside jokes.

I'll be posting 3 chapters a week starting next Monday.

"Hommage" in this case is called "blatant plagiarism", Mr. FenShui.

It's a recording diary, it's about a band, and it's humorous. The resemblance pretty much ends there.

OK. I saw what "Vladismir" did. LMBO. I am not responsible for this. If I were to spoof my own book it would be a lot more clever than that.

It's great to see you here, Mr. Sinatra! I thought you should know, in chapter 34, Blenderman is banned from using Alsihad, so they finish the album by recording over your old master tapes.

Meh.

I saw this Blenderman thing 2 years ago when it was first smudged together. It was a Priceless waste of time then and even more so now.

I hear that plaigarism is the highest form of flattery.

For the record, two years ago, I told MM that I was working on a novel called "Record Producer from Dimension X" and I would like to borrow the term "Alsihad," and he said he had no problem with it. I also contacted bbchessman and asked him if  I could borrow the "NibNob" gag. Everything is above board.

yea, right! And I heard the movie deal is already a year old. And I heard that Tom Hanks is playing the lead role. Apparently he discovers that Quantegy kept a secret lab in the Louvre under some upside down pyramid scheme. At least that's what I heard....

I read some of your book. The only thing I would suggest is name changes for some of the characters. "Bastard' isnt a very interesting name and not particularly creative.
'The Fat Bastard' may have been a better choice. Maybe you could be thinking old style 'Mafia/gangster names.....basically an angle is needed through out as right now its awfully close to Mixermans story.

Or

What you should be doing is Ghostwriting for me. I am the Epitomy of the guy that nearly made it.......

Dang ... I was LMBO when I came up with it because it's so juvenile. I didn't know it was already used on a British TV show.

It has an angle ... it takes a few chapters to get there, though.

I still haven't gotten around to reading the MM stuff (a sin, I know...) but I enjoyed your story. Pretty damn funny, especially the part about solo'ing up the toms and pretending to tweak them for 15 minutes to shake the band's interest in being overly "hands-on" in the engineering process - a trick I may or may not have used myself  Twisted Evil

So where do I get one of those Nib-Nobs?

LOL!!

Alright, now please someone explain it to me.
Fenris, Vladismir, Mixerman...one big mess or one and the same ?
This is getting tiresome, you know. I'm too old for this stuff.

Please, Mr. Massenberg, sort it. Not worthy of this place.

I just finished reading the Mixerman diaries and thoroughly enjoyed those as well. I see a lot of similarities ("Blenderman/Mixerman" being the only thing I felt was a bit TOO similar) but those aside, I don't see much evidence of plagiarism. Hell, any two engineers could write up a diary of their experiences in the studio and they'd probably come out fairly similar. They both use REP jargon, some originated by Mixerman, but if Fenris really does have permission to use those terms then I really don't see what the big fuss is all about.

Personally, I like both. Mixerman's comes across as fairly concise, and Fenris' writing appears to be more fictionally embellished for the sake of humor. Great stuff, all around. I look forward to reading more Smile

I can't say I care much how long the new episodes are up,

In the beginning it was a bit derivative of the Mixerman diaries, but I gave it a chance

then it started going off in a new direction, and it seemed more interesting.

Then it became more political, but I wanted to know what happened next, so I kept reading.

But now I just tried reading the next episode, and it's just so full of bullshit political lecturing based on a closed mind, bigotry and a limited view of history (which are nauseating whether from the right, the left or the vogons), that I've decided I really don't care what happens next.

Whether your intention is to entertain, or to bring people over towards your political thinking, this story has turned into a complete failure in my opinion.

Your writing shows you have eloquence and imagination, what you don't appear to have is subtlety and balance.
