Project Sisyphus I've Got Garageband 
A few years ago, Apple developed their free "Garageband" software so that anyone who bought a Mac could instantly become a musician. Perhaps this wasn't such a great idea.

This song is now available on the following CDs:

Heh, this is a catchy tune- it almost reminds me the Evil Dead: The Musical soundtrack. Possibly that connection is due to the time of the year though XD Nicely done though!

Welcome aboard! I love this song. But we may have to explain it to a few Windows users. :)

Welcome, Bob. With a Rob (Balder) and a Robert (Lund), we needed a Bob. Now that you've broken the Bob barrier, the next FuMP members will probably be Bob Rivers and Bob Ricci. And the Bobs.

-CLAP- -CLAP- -CLAP- That was amazingly phenominal. I love Garageband too... except when I get the spinning beachball of death.

Thank you Hurricane, Spice, Spaff, and Dino-Mike! Forgot to mention 2 details: 1) This song was produced entirely with Garageband (as if it weren't obvious) and 2) Thanks to Wally Wingert for his awesome vocal performance.

That was Wally Wingert?! Cool! He was at CONvergence this year, but sadly I completely missed him. All hail the Tallest! The song / performance was reminiscent of Dennis DeYoung, or any of his contemporaries. You know, Styx of one, half a dozen of the other. :) Great song!

Woah. It's bad pun day on the FuMP I see! Styx with music Luke, that was so funny I forgot to spaff!
But seriously folks... ANOTHER quality act on the FuMP? I'll be run out on a rail!
Really nice and moving song... *sniff!* Welcome welcome, I've now got a bad case of Sisyphus!!!

I liked how you included several different genres of music all in one song; "no talent hack..." my a@#$"! That's cool bassoon solo too, Bob. I sing my praises of the FuMP and Project Sisyphus for providing us with what could become a theme song for independent radio stations all across this great country of ours.

I have GarageBand too, but still haven't figured out how to compose music with it. Now after hearing your song, I begin to wonder if that wasn't for the best... Terrific!
2007-10-26 ProjectSisyphus
Thank you Cajun, Seamonkey and DJ! Seamonkey, don't go nowhere...we need you to explain where these "filk hotties" are...Hey Luke, funny you should say that about the vox
2007-10-26 DJ Particle
"Filk hotties" are usually found in their natural habitat: fan conventions. ;) Some notable ones include, but are not limited to, Carrie Dahlby, DJ EYG, Carla Ulbrich, Voice of Kiki, Beth Kinderman, etc ;)
2007-10-26 DJ Particle
Wait I need to do a disclaimer. "Filk hotties" may or may not be taken already. *heh*

I also thought the vocal sounded a bit like Dennis DeYoung. Another great performance from Project Sisyphus!
2007-10-29 weirdojace
Awesome song!!! And I thought I heard Tallest Red in there. ;)
2007-10-29 TVsKyle
Well, you already know I like this one... despite being a Garageband user.
2007-10-29 Molakwae
I hope no one notices I use iMovie now... I could be in trouble....

Two weeks after a friend switched from windows to a Mac I got an excited email from him where he bounced around telling me how much fun he was having with iMovie iPhoto, but most of all, Garageband. I asked him to send me a song or two but he declined, saying "It's all crap, but it's the most fun crap I've done in a long time!"

I really like this song and how you add sound effects to it as you do the song. It's a brilliant song wish I had thought of it.
2007-11-02 chewy's brother
Great song. You got a CD I can buy? I'm interested enough to hear more songs.
2007-11-02 ProjectSisyphus
Thank you Emi, Rick, Weirodjace, Molakwae, Kyle and Art Paul! Palenoue, I love that story. Chewy's bro - we haven't made a "real" CD because we thought the costs of art work and duplication woul exceed our pitiful revenues, but the "album" is available in e-format on iTunes and Snocap (from our MySpace profile), should be on Rhapsody and Napster shortly.

Nicely done! I use Logic Audio [express] for all my recording work(Garageband's big brother). --Z

Yikes! This song is so scarily like what is passing for musical theatre today. Give a listen to the nauseating hit song "Taylor the Latte Boy" and you'll hear what I mean...I MUCH prefer Bob's satire of this sort of formulaic pablum...Can't wait to see Project Sisyphus on Broadway instead of the crap they have nowadays.
