Making Metaguards Out of You (COMPLETE!)

Postby Scarab on Wed Dec 05, 2012 2:31 pm

The final video, people! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rVLkwxvr ... e=youtu.be

Okay so a bunch of us in the chatroom are planning to tropify and song Put Make a Man Out of You as a group. (You know, Don’s song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZSS5dEeMX64)

To avoid the complete lack of progress that hindered 'Eye of the Troper', there's a time limit on this. We plan to have this done for the 21st, preferably before Don Qxuixote goes home because we all want him to hear it! Anybody else wants to sing who hasn’t already signed up, let us know.

If you wish to be involved but do not want to post links to your audio here, then PM me and I will send you my email address! Please try for clear and LOUD recordings, and sing the WHOLE song, to make it easier to splice.

The deadline for submissions is
the 10th. Sorry it's so tight, guys, but we're in a bit of rush! (It was previously the 14th but it turns out we need to have Don's stories submitted by then, so if we want to hear him I need to get it all put together and uploaded by the 11th. The nature of the deadline means I really don't want to ask for an extension from Mister A)


Clarification in case anybody needs it:

Each of us who wishes to do so sings the WHOLE song. Use headphones so that the recording does not pick up on the background music as we already have that as a separate file.
If you need to listen as you sing, you can find the song with vocals here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jbp52Z9jRg0
And without here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UhICDbRKz-E


LIST OF THOSE DEFINITELY INVOLVED (all submissions MUST be made ASAP)
  • Adell - Completed
  • Agora - Completed? May be more pending.
  • EliGoneCrazy
  • Genndy Oda C.O.G - Completed and uploaded as an independent piece
  • Guyshane -Completed
  • Kirka -Completed
  • Mimsy - Completed
  • Narrativedilettante - Completed
  • Qara-Xuan Zenith -Completed
  • RotavatoR - Completed
  • Scarab -Completed
  • Sicon112 - Completed

Please also note, depending on how it's all put together, the final order and number of people who get a line MAY change, it depends on how we get this to work. I apologise in advance if anybody has to be cut! We will do our best to get everyone in!

These are the lyrics we have so far (they’re NOT finished) EDITED TO ADD: in the first rough stage but done, may still change.

Let's get down to business
to restore the Wall
Did they call in tropers
Or a bunch of trolls?
We’re the strangest bunch
you’ve ever met
But you can bet
before we’re through
We will make Metaguards out of you

Tranquil in the forums
But a rage within
Once we find the echoes
We are sure to win
We’re a messed up, brave
demented lot
And we’re really kinda screwed
Somehow we’ll keep the wall
Standing, too


Rota: I'm never gonna catch
up now
Adell: Can we all please
stay on topic?
Kirka: Anybody here remember
Morgan’s tropes?
Eli: Mister A’s got me
stressed as hell
Qara: Hope LJS won’t
see right through me
Scarab: ...I think Don Quixote
just attacked a bus?

(The Wall Won’t Fall)
We must be swift as
an instantiation
(The Wall Won’t Fall)
With all the force
of a badass lime
(The Wall Won’t Fall)
With all the heart
of a storyteller
remembering that
we're running out of time!

Mister A keeps yelling
That the Cabal lie
"HEED OUR EVERY ORDER
AND YOU MIGHT SURVIVE"
Leaning to and fro
'Tween Ed and Joe
but don’t ever think we’re through
We will still make metaguards
Out of you...

(The Wall Won’t Fall)
We must be swift as
an instantiation
(The Wall Won’t Fall)
With all the force
of a badass lime
(The Wall Won’t Fall)
With all the heart
of a storyteller
remembering that
we're running out of time!

Please note: the assigned individual lines are first-come-first-serve, by request only. (And as of now, I have reserved the "see right through me" line).

Other than those lines, no Metaguards should be mentioned in the song, only characters. And everyone will sing the verses together. ^_^

Dude, there are like fifty active metaguards and only six lines, sorry, but they were already taken :(

I would definitely take that line of "the strangest bunch you ever met."

*Only that one verse of spoken lines is assigned to specific people. Everything else we'll all sing together.

I'd love to lend my voice to this.

Question: For the chorus, will we split up into people who sing "The wall won't fall" and people who sing the other lines, or should we each record it twice and do both parts?

I... guess I'm in? >.<
Hell, I've even got my own line :P I'm worried that I won't do it though, just like I didn't contribute to "Eye of the Troper"

Adding ya to the list Dilly

We're still figuring out how to do this, but basically, everyone involved signs the WHOLE song and it is cut and pasted as required. Put your soul into it ;)

I'd sing too, but I'm not even worse than average, I'm worse than bad singing.

Let me give you an example: I managed to set down the morale of my friends singing ONE VERSE of a song. And that's not even a full song. Even my music teacher at school is surprised by the horror of my singing.

Huh, is that like, a rule? Strikes me as kinda sexist that guys don't get to be banshees too.

I don't know much about banshees, only that they usually are female, they are from Ireland and they relate to death or life, I don't remember.

I'm not sure if I can participate because of projects and all that, but if I somehow find the time (and an empty home so nobody can hear me :P), I'll probably send mine too.
Why should we do the right thing?
-Well... because it's the right thing to do, there's no other good reason.

Am I a bad guy trying to be good, or a good guy trying to convince himself that he's not the bad guy?
