can not tell you exactly how many times I have found myself retelling
this story to so many people.
all started November of 2010, my junior year of high school. Though
expected to be just a regular day at the
Waynesville Career Center in my Graphic Design coarse; I always make
it sound like I became a super hero.
was in the morning and we had not been in class for more than thirty
minutes when my poor old teacher was slaved away to other duties,
leaving the twenty five of us alone with iMacs and a crew made up
'mostly' serious kids. I was not one of the 'serious' ones at the
time. I was actually attempting to do my work...until it happened!
small group of friends of whom I sat next to, Patrick who was from my
school. A talented artist and super class clown. Parker who no one
really knew his first name. Also a clown especially when teamed up
with Doug. I
hardly knew Doug, but here we go.
three of them always found ways of not doing their work and this time
was one of the best. So there I was doing my work and then all of a
sudden, I hear some of the most annoying sounds coming from the three
of them. Yelling and spitting all over Patrick's monitor like a pack
of rabid dogs and then laughing so hard about something. So as
curious as I was to the disruption, I kicked myself over to them in
my desk chair to where the three were in my row. They had managed to
figure out how to use GarageBand, at least the recording side of it.
Before this moment I never knew how electronic music was made or what
the process was of recording. The three had managed to remake the
Mortal Kombat theme song with the noises that they made. It was dumb,
but it got me thinking.
