:I really doubt that's a 'distortion', I think he's just trilling.
Wait, there's a second H*R CD???

How are we gonna do this one? --Jay o'Lantern (Haunt) 07:32, 17 September 2007 (UTC)

No idea at all, which is pretty much why all I put there was a template. --Blu Aardvark (talk) (edits) 07:34, 17 September 2007 (UTC)
How about a different section for each song, with the exception of the original version of Because It's Midnite (we can just link to Because It's Midnite, assuming they're same (I think they are)). Trey56 07:39, 17 September 2007 (UTC)
I own the CD and I'm not sure they're identical exactly, but they're definitely close enough if they're not. I can compare when I find said CD. --Jay o'Lantern (Haunt) 07:43, 17 September 2007 (UTC)
Oh, I guess there's nothing more to sloshy's song than was in the QotW. So, we can just link to sloshy for the original version of that song too. Also, it looks like perhaps we should put the original lyrics to "We Don't Even Really Care About You" on sloshy — that seems like the best place for them, rather than creating a separate page at We Don't Even Really Care About You... Trey56 07:45, 17 September 2007 (UTC)
BTW, the reason I thought it might not have been the original was because the lead singer doesn't seem to have Larry's overexaggerated voice, but it's like that on the CD too. Maybe that was pre-Larry's-overexaggerated-voice-being-a-standard. ;) --Jay o'Lantern (Haunt) 07:47, 17 September 2007 (UTC)
This looks great as a format to start with. Trey56 07:57, 17 September 2007 (UTC)
I don't think it is the same one as on the CD. Trust me, it's different. Lyrically, it's the same, but the sound is different. I'm not a music expert or anything, so I can't toss out any terms or instruments, but it IS different. I'd bet my (forum) account on it. --DorianGray 08:06, 17 September 2007 (UTC)
I listened to both together. I didn't listen all the way through, but the intros were 100% identical. --Jay o'Lantern (Haunt) 08:11, 17 September 2007 (UTC)
I'm currently playing both versions simultaneously. There is no difference. --Jay o'Lantern (Haunt) 08:13, 17 September 2007 (UTC)
Waaaait a minute, are you all suggesting that the CD version (played by LIMOZEEN) is the same as the one here (played by SLOSHY)? They're completely different musically and the only similarities between the lead vocals are because they're both Matt Chapman. —Zelinda 13:17, 17 September 2007 (UTC)
No, he's talking about the music you hear when you click "hear the original". --phlip TC 13:19, 17 September 2007 (UTC)
It sounds to me like the sound quality was reduced. It may be higher than it normally is for the toons, but CD quality it ain't. If you're talking mp3, CD quality is at about 128 kbps (that's KiloBits Per Second) and this sounds like it may be somewhere around half that rate. Which, I think, is consistent with it being converted from stereophonic (stereo) to monaural (mono). — User:ACupOfCoffee@ 17:34, 17 September 2007 (UTC)
The audio quality in this toon is 22kHz, mono, 32kbit/s MP3 (cf: CD audio, which is 44kHz, stereo, 16bit lossless - comparable to MP3 at around 128 or 192 kbps. Also cf: bike thief's audio is 11kHz, mono, 16kbit/s MP3). Just throwing that pointless piece of trivia out there. --phlip TC 17:45, 17 September 2007 (UTC)

Members of sloshy

Shouldnt there be a page about the members of sloshy? Or is that to the least importance. Butterda Foop The DJ.T/CFoop 12:13, 17 September 2007 (UTC)

Unfortunately, there's not much more known about them yet, but sloshy could probably be updated, at very least with a picture of their cartoon versions. Trey56 14:28, 17 September 2007 (UTC)


Do you think it's worth a Remark that both songs are exactly the same length (1:35)? It just seems like it might be interesting, or possibly even deliberate. 12:39, 17 September 2007 (UTC)

I also notice that Because, It's Midnite is missing a verse; if that verse was there, they would no longer be the same length. I don't know how intentional it is, but hey, always open to discussion on the Talk page. --Jay o'Lantern (Haunt) 21:33, 17 September 2007 (UTC)

Chucks and not Sneakers

The left foot has a chuck on, not a sneaker. I'm pretty sure it is but just to be cautious: anyone dis/agree? suǝʇʇıʞ ƃuıɥɔund 19:54, 17 September 2007 (UTC)

Good thing we have a page about them. --DorianGray 21:46, 17 September 2007 (UTC)

Music Styles

I dunno about anyone else, but for the Limozeen versions I got a huge Zeppelin vibe from the first and a Blue Oyster Cult vibe from the other. Just throwing it out there.

Rrolling the arrrs

I noticed that the Limozeen song seems to roll the Rs even when there aren't any. Awexome 22:44, 17 September 2007 (UTC)

I really doubt that's a 'distortion', I think he's just trilling.

.. Wait, there's a second H*R CD???
