Royal Trux Reunite @ Berserktown - Can Anyone Film It?

Message Bookmarked
Bookmark Removed

Hey guys. Curious if anyone's going to Berserktown! I'm stuck in texas. If you're going is there any chance of recording it? Video or audio? I've got a good amount of Trux recordings and I'd like to add to the pile. Also if you'll let me panhandle, could you grab me a large sized Trux shirt they're selling? http://i.imgur.com/lzGtH2r.png

yeah, i'm going to berserktown. and there's a chance of recording it. video and audio. but the question is: what's in it for me?

odds are way way way higher that this will be filmed than that it will happen, relax

karl malone can you buy us all tshirts plz i'll take either a medium or large depending on how generous the sizes are. also if you could make a documentary about it that would be great

Karl Malone can you just hang out with Neil and Jen for a while and like soak up their essence and bring it back here to ILM, I want to know what it feels like. Also can I have $200.

i'll buy every shirt they have. documentary is a little more iffy because i don't know if it's going to be about royal trux the band or about the show or about "royal trux". not a fan of conventional docs with people being interviewed in dark rooms with little captions explaining who they are mixed in with live footage, so probably going to do interviews themin brighter rooms with captions so large that only part of them fits in the frame, mixed in with t-shirt footage.

and sure old lunch you can have $200 no problem

1993 ball boy (Karl Malone), Wednesday, 12 August 2015 18:45 (one year ago) Permalink

i also need $200 + royal trux tshirt

tylerw, Wednesday, 12 August 2015 18:46 (one year ago) Permalink

Can you get me 200 Royal Trux t-shirts for $1

so stoked!

ogmor, Wednesday, 12 August 2015 18:51 (one year ago) Permalink

hey Karl I'll take two larges if you can manage to. Prioritize me over these guys I'll pay you for your efforts!

edges, Wednesday, 12 August 2015 18:57 (one year ago) Permalink

many xposts

change of plans - no more video and audio - just video. i'll have to obtain audio through different channels (and in multiple channels, if possible) and sync it up in post production

1993 ball boy (Karl Malone), Wednesday, 12 August 2015 18:59 (one year ago) Permalink

but i'll make one audio channel play 10-12 milliseconds after the other to create a cool "reverb" effect so that'll be cool

and edges, you are first in this thread so you are first in my mind

Interesting idea: what if the audio was just an ambient recording of the Royal Trux t-shirt, I think Trux fans would "get it".

Gristly Bear (Old Lunch), Wednesday, 12 August 2015 19:03 (one year ago) Permalink

@karl- yeeeeee

@gristly- needs more grindy noises

edges, Wednesday, 12 August 2015 19:04 (one year ago) Permalink

it's possible to open up an image of a royal trux t-shirt as a text file, then save the resulting crazy code as a WAV. take that WAV and add some reverb (by delaying one channel of audio by 10-12 milliseconds) and you've got ambience

1993 ball boy (Karl Malone), Wednesday, 12 August 2015 19:05 (one year ago) Permalink

using a similar process, i'll email you all the t-shirts

I can't read that in my text editor but it looks very ambient!

1993 ball boy (Karl Malone), Wednesday, 12 August 2015 19:19 (one year ago) Permalink

I'm at work so I had to save it at a low filesize to up it on our network. Sorry it doesn't translate to text from mp3

edges, Wednesday, 12 August 2015 19:21 (one year ago) Permalink

it's not your fault

1993 ball boy (Karl Malone), Wednesday, 12 August 2015 19:22 (one year ago) Permalink

Karl helpful hint: if you print a text file of an .mp3 on a tshirt it will show up as tabs and then you can play it on a guitar.

what the fuck are these???

This is a pretty common practice. The "guitar" was never signed at all, only the pick guard (you'll note that the tone and volume knobs overlap the actual autograph). Certain enterprising individuals will buy pick guards and have anyone who is remotely a "celebrity" sign them, and then they affix these autographed pick guards to the cheapest Squier (or non-Fender Strat knockoff) they can find, selling it as a "signed guitar." They're all over eBay.

two weeks pass...

Drag City got the iphone videos linked above yanked off youtube within a day or two. I wondered if maybe they were planning on releasing a live video or lp. Now they've posted pro quality clips of Junkie Nurse and Back to School. They sound pretty good. So, maybe!

It's cool there's professional video to watch now, but Drag fucking City remains the unfunnest record label in all of indieland.

It looks like the new album will be recordings of them warming up for the first reunion shows. No new songs!
I'm still going to buy it the day it comes out.

Oh, er, hm. I was initially very excited but less so about a self-covers album.

Looking forward to this.

I saw them live in Tucson at the DPC back in '93 iirc. Odd show. The band got lost and kept calling the venue asking for directions. The opening acts played and most of the audience left. They finally showed up around 11pm and played to a nearly empty room.
