Convenient, I’m also a Reaper user. I’ll see what I can do.


#42

Ha, thanks!

BTW, I like your new avatar better. :wink:


#43

Because it’s Twin Peaks or because it’s less homoerotic?


#44

Less H.E. for sure. I didn’t know if that’s you, or Bryan Ferry (Roxy Music) in the picture, but it’s a pretty interesting picture.


#45

#46

Ah, how media informs our lives. Kimmy Robertson is a doll. I predict she and Dale Cooper will become heterosexual lovers. Go heterosexuals.


#47

Robertson actually plays a girl that’s not what I’d say mentally challenged, but certainly slow. She hooks up with a slow deputy and they have a slow son played by Michael Cera in the new revival. Dale Cooper is courted by Sherilyn Finn, but he thinks she’s too young for him. She smooches him, as does Sheryl Lee, but Sheryl Lee comes to him in a post-cognitive dream since her character is dead before the show starts. So yeah, Coop’s straight as the tin man’s penis.


#48

Well, DTJ, I did mock up a Flying High, so I thought I’d share it with all. It is a somber number, no doubt, and I tried to give the music that vibe. My singing is mostly atrocious, but it is close to what I was going for. It is probably nothing like you thought it would be, but it is an interesting version to me.

Anyway, I have the midi if anybody wants it.


#49

I like what you did with it musically. Didn’t turn out like I expected, but that’s a good thing. I’d like the midi.


#50

I need your email to send it to you, D. Mine is bancroft.steve@gmail.com. Can’t do .mid upload here at IDR.


#51

Send me some stuff too please, Steve… Reaper is up and running…


#52

Hooray! Are you wanting to import midi virtual instrument tracks, Ailwyn, or just add bass tracks to the mp3 song?

To do that, I’d create a new project in a folder per song called the song name, then download an mp3 from this thread, then drag and drop it on a Reaper track. Then create another audio track and enable recording on your bass track only. You then can do as many takes as you want, use the best one or parts of ones. Only Planet Hollywood has a bass track already.

You will want to make a mix just to check it out, easy to do, but you will want to open your new bass track in Audacity or something to make a wav an mp3 so you can upload here. If you want to talk, just let me know when and we’ll set it up.

And here is a slightly edited vocals flying high1-003.mp3. Reaper is so handy for editing audio.


#53

He should be able to render an MP3 directly out of Reaper. Same render window. Just mute all but the bass track, set a few parameters (Master Track or Stem, Project or Time Selection), and select MP3 and the bitrate. Probably mono, unless the bass has effects and it needs to be stereo.


#54

Below is the latest entire Script. It contains narrative and lyric changes and corrections. It also includes the new song by DTJ, Flying High.

Also here is also my rough version of Freedom Is Ugly. Any feedback, extra tracks or alternative music appreciated! I’m trying to change up the sound on this song but still sound like Roxy Music Clones stylistically.

Tales of the Interstellar Fur Traders
By The Interstellar Fur Traders

Orchestral Opening - instrumental, no music. Most likely futurized orchestral with a rock element to foreshadow our future elements.
(this evolves into the background music for the first spoken part)

Opening
Captain Bishop:
Captain’s Log 2449.11.17.1538.
This is Captain Axatar Bishop reporting from the bridge of the Starship Aphrodite, currently in spacedock at Space Station Major Tom. We are scheduled to depart in three days to Planet Hollywood. Our passengers this time are the two handlers and 30 winners of this reality show talent contest, the most successful and long running of all time in fact. Yes, that one. Normally we do this every year after the season finale, and it’s a cakewalk. These young men and women are going there to be movie stars and the like, so they’re a pretty fun group to be cramped up with for six months.

But this year, the 100th season, there had been a dramatic rule change where the contestants faces were disguised by nanomasks so that they could not be judged by their looks, just their talent. And tonight, live on television, the winners’ actual faces will be revealed to all. It’s supposed to break all ratings records, I should mention. Not much is known about Planet Hollywood as it is a closed society, with minimal immigration or tourism allowed outside these winners every year. There are actors, directors and producers, but all the supporting infrastructure is automated. However, rumor has it this change was quite a shake up among the powers that be, and the darker rumor is that someone in particular is very unhappy and would not mind if my ship ended up lost in space. I have no proof but am making extra security sweeps and deeper background checks, just in case.

Song #1- Planet of Beautiful People - done, needs bass, guitar?, background vocals

Planet of Beautiful People (repeat 2)

Only the best of the best

You’re invited of course

Charlton Taylor:
–The opening music of the reality show POBP season finale.
And good evening everyone, I’m Charlton Taylor, your host for the longest running and most popular reality TV show in history. Welcome to the finale for the 100th season of the Planet of Beautiful People!
–Crowd cheers.
Last week the top 50 contestants performed their hearts out, competing for a chance to migrate to Planet Hollywood and all that comes with it. You, the audience, have voted, and tonight your favorite 25 will be revealed as the winners. As you know, this is the first year we’ve used nanomasks to disguise the competitors so that they cannot be judged on their physical beauty. They will win based strictly on their talent.
So tweet your votes in now as voting is about to end, and we’ll be back to announce the first winners right after this message.

Captain Bishop:
Captain’s Log 2450.02.01.1701.
On board the Starship Aphrodite, the winners relax backstage, still being filmed for future outtakes.
Everybody strives to act naturally, but underneath they all are tense, not yet completely believing this could all be real, more likely the ship will hit a chunk of rock and kill them all.
They are unaware of the vague threat we had been warned about, and thankfully there is no indication it is real.

Song #2 No Turning Back Now - done, needs bass, guitar?, background vocals

Gazing across the vastness of space
My soul almost lost in the blackness, no trace
Unfathomable distances and times I see out there
What am I of all people doing out here?
What am I of all people doing out here?

But there’s no turning back now
I made my choice and here I am
No turning back now
I must stick to the plan

Everyone
Everyone has been so friendly
Some a little anxious like me
Maybe looking cool on the outside
But I know it’s skin deep

We know where we’re going
But do we really know why?
What will we do when we get there?
Will it make us laugh or cry?

But there’s no turning back now
We made our choice and here we are
No turning back
We’re on our way to the stars

But there’s no turning back now
We made our choice and here we are
So why would we turn back now
We’re going to be stars
We’re gonna be stars
We’re gonna be stars

No matter how wonderful, no matter how good
Despite all the gossip about Planet Hollywood
And all the whispered rumors flying around the town
You can’t be sure that what you heard is going to be found

But I’m sticking to my plan
Made my choice and here I am
No turning back now
Gonna be a star, baby, yes, I am
Gonna be a star, baby, yes, I am
Gonna be a star, baby, yes, I am
Gonna be a star, there’s no turning back
I’m gonna be a star

Captain Bishop:
Captain’s Log 2450.05.26.0800.
As the weeks go by, things settle down. The handlers have enough footage, and in the show friendships develop into post-show friendships.
Talk becomes more serious, and trust deeper, as our destination draws near.
Captain’s Log out.

Arrival
Captain Bishop:
Captain’s Log 2450.05.26.0800.
Despite all the fears of foul play, the six months flight completed with no incidents to report. This morning I have arranged for the winners and their luggage to be transferred to their new residences in New Beverly Hills. I was accompanying Gareth, who was probably the least beautiful male on the entire planet, not that I was a prize catch either, and I was slightly concerned he may not be instantly accepted. To my surprise, it seemed quite the opposite. Everyone, especially the women, seemed to be fawning all over him, even flirting.

That was when I spotted this one statuesque vixen strutting in our direction, and then she turned her head toward me, staring me in the eyes with eyes so lavender blue, and gave me this big smile, this big Alfred E. Neumann toothy smile, and I lost it.

Jax, the handler, whispered to me, “What do you think of Crooked Teeth Hillary?” And I had nothing to say except, “Why?” And that’s when he explained to me what had been going on here, that changed the contest to allow a Gareth to win. And the root of the fear that some sort of trouble could be in the making. Reverse plastic surgery, or in this case, orthodontics. It seemed that where everyone was so perfect, perfection had lost its power of attraction. Indeed, the exact opposite had evolved.

I was still recovering from the shock of the concept, however, when all that trouble we hadn’t experienced exploded around us. Someone caught a story on the news with video of Gareth and me in this room in real time. I saw no cameras, but they use swarm nanocams ubiquitously here. The caption said, “SCANDAL ON DAY ONE?” The video quickly flashed to the ship showing some compromising looking behavior heavily censored.

People started nervously checking their devices, and the warm reception quickly felt a lot colder. I felt bad for him, but more than that it just didn’t pass the smell test. He was being set up for something, I didn’t know what.

But the next story explained it all- “SPECIAL ELECTION CALLED FOR”.
It was political. And Gareth was the football.

And they were dragging my ship into the middle of it.

Song #3- We Could Not Find It Anymore - done, needs bass, guitar?, background vocals

We sailed unto a distant shore
The farthest reaches to explore
Looked everywhere, cracked every door
We could not find it anymore, anymore, anymore

It used to be right there, you see
Always found so easily
Like Easter eggs in tall grass hidden
For the benefit of smaller children

We could not find it anymore
Anywhere we looked before
No stone unturned, no reason for
We could not find it anymore, anymore, anymore, ooooooh

We looked in all the usual places
We only saw the same old faces
Nothing changed with no exception
Except perhaps our own perception

For years we lived with our confusion
Some claimed conspiracy and collusion
Some fought the facts with stark defiance
Others sought the truth with science

We could not find it anymore
Anywhere we looked before
No stone unturned, no reason for
We could not find it anymore, anymore, aaaaah

And so it was that in the end
We saw the answer was within
Invisible under close inspection
When looking in the wrong direction

We sailed unto a distant shore
The farthest reaches to explore
Looked everywhere, cracked every door
We could not find it anymore, anymore, anymore, anymore

Song #4- Nose Job - done, needs bass, guitar?, background vocals

My baby just got a nose job
Just the other day
She told me she was thinking about it
And it just wouldn’t go away
Whenever she looked in the mirror
She knew what she wanted to see
And she’s gone and done it now
And she sure stands out in a crowd

In a roomful of models
Defining perfection
Every aspect of attractiveness
On walkway exhibition
You see her, my baby, she leaps out
To the forefront in 3D, I suppose
Your focus helplessly riveted
On her marvelously enlarged nose

My baby just got a nose job
On her marvelously enlarged nose
On her marvelously enlarged nose
On her marvelously enlarged nose

It now has a crook
Maybe leans to the left
And at the point I believe
I see a delicate cleft
Although rosy is quite popular
Its coloration is quite normal
Like big ears slightly royal
Almost serious and formal

I couldn’t believe it
But I had to agree
Her nose was a hit
At the party
She was the woman
They all wanted to be
The center of attention
In a sea of beauty

My baby just got a nose job
Just the other day
She told me she was thinking about it
And it just wouldn’t go away
Whenever she looked in the mirror
She knew what she wanted to see
And she’s gone and done it now
And she sure stands out in a crowd

Captain’s Log 2450.05.26.0800.
Everything was topsy turvy here. No wonder they always imported so many self help tapes and videos. Gareth should have become a superstar, the life of the party, but it was not meant to be. But there he was caught wanking off to his fellow male and female passengers in the shower on a hidden nanocam. He was the scum of the planet. We knew it was fake but had yet to find any proof. However, no matter how unsophisticated we looked, we constantly ran some pretty high tech security aboard, even if it included tracking down some errant nanocam to its source, and further, to its code source. It would be close, we were down in every poll, and though we were outwardly optimistic, inside we were sweating it out with the the election tomorrow.

Song #5- The Golden Age of the Silver Screen - has lyrics, no music. Musical style hard rock Children of the Sun.

It all began so innocently
In the early twentieth century
In Hollywood, California

Moving images thrown on a silver screen
Inspired imaginations in ways never before seen
And beautiful faces of movie stars
Uncontrollably, irrevocably captured our hearts

It was the Golden Age of the Silver Screen
Made us laugh and cry and everything in between
With Lauren Bacall and Lucille Ball
Sofia Loren and Errol Flynn
And later Scarlett Johansson and even Ted Danson
In Three Men and a Baby or even the X-Men
It was the Golden Age of the Silver Screen
Made us laugh and cry and everything in between

And so it evolved in the first century
To thrive and transform to a new economy
Where fortune came from fame as the new currency
And the world was never to be the same again

Moving images thrown on a silver screen
Inspired imaginations in ways never before seen
And beautiful faces of movie stars
Uncontrollably, irrevocably captured our hearts

For a time after that as technology raged
Virtual actors everywhere dominated the stage
New classics with Bogart, Heston and Gable
A miracle of science and quite indistinguishable

And it seemed like the end of an era unequalled
And as often is the case for the fate of the sequel
There was a rebellion in the hearts of the masses of people
Saving salaries for actors as ticket sales dwindled

You can never completely turn back the clock
The digital recreations became AI star stock
Starring alongside new faces, fresh talents discovered
It was enough for the fans, and the industry recovered

It continued, it inculcated, its stars gained nobility
It surpassed celebrity, now bloodlines brought pedigree
And after hundreds of years of Hollywood royalty
Before the big one would come from the San Andreas Fault finally
The studios all merged and moved for good
Became a global operation called Planet Hollywood

It was the Golden Age of the Silver Screen
Made us laugh and cry and everything in between
With Doris Day and Danny Kaye
Jimmy Stewart and Marilyn
With superheroes and aliens
In Grapes of Wrath and Of Mice and Men
It was the Golden Age of the Silver Screen
Made us laugh and cry and everything in between

Captain’s Log Supplemental.
Their world has been so closed off for so long, so it caught me off guard. There is a sordid underbelly to their society in general which on the surface looks so idyllic. Apparently there is such competition for the top roles that it has created a pecking order of stars from the very top to the bottom of the barrel, and it manifests myriad problems. This of course exacerbates the political situation as well, adding an additional element of uncertainty.

Song #6- So Polarized - has lyrics, some music, needs bass, lead guitar. Musical style semi prog rock. Maybe alternating Roxy/Billy polarized style.

Once a upon a time
As all fairy tales begin
There was a handsome prince
And a fair maiden
When they met in the forest
They discovered love and laughter
And much of consequence
Had followed thereafter
Trials and tribulations
Evil queens and stepmothers
But always in the end
They lived happily ever after

But that was in their movie lives
Made for you and me to see
And often they would find themselves
Wishing to believe
But in a world of princes and maidens all
It was not reality

There was jealousy
And attraction
Personality
Lots of boredom
Superficiality
There was action
Sometimes brutality
No satisfaction

There was anger
There was sorrow
And you felt like
There’s no tomorrow
Sometimes you feel
Interchangeable

And the magic spark of movies
Was rarely there to see
And many turned to prescriptions
And seeking help professionally

They were all such talented actors
Selling fake authenticity
And they often fooled each other
Falling in love too easily
For some it was all of the bat of an eye
And the spell irreversibly spun
But it became less effective
On some and on others not at all
As the years went on and on

But the people in charge were all movie stars
They were the creme de la creme de la creme
Elected and promoted to positions of power
Older and brought up on the traditional order
Who accepted the affairs and divorces as just this
Natural unavoidable occupational risk
But time is a harsh teacher and director
Started more and more people looking much deeper
Pirates of love searching for buried treasure
Ignoring the trinkets shining in the sand
Listening for the metal detector to beep again
To find beneath the surface what can’t be explained

And in their Great Society
Which championed causes historically
Standing for peace and love so nobly
Defending the underdogs, the weak and the meek
Off camera oft motivated by insider greed
Corrupting their system and every other politician
Its fairy tale stripped of its morality

So polarized
Like film solarized
Reduced to black and white
Or red and blue
How do you pick a side
How do they pick you
Do you even want to play
When you’re feeling inside
Yellow or gray

Song #7- Flying High - has some music and lyrics. Current musical style Roxy Music Rock

Planet Hollywood isn’t what it seems
It’s not like how the children dream
There is no pie up in the sky
Every day another man dies

There was an actor upon the screen
In the pictures his eyes always gleam
But underneath that fragile illusion
Lies a heart with many contusions

Shoved a needle in his veins
To alleviate his pain
Drove him crazy, he went insane
If only he could find his way
Maybe on some fateful day
We’ll meet him again and we’ll say
“Why couldn’t you stay?”

There was a lady who had the power
To make the noblest of the men cower
Commanded the respect of the masses
Behind the screen her life was tragic

Father had left her ripped and torn
With endless ridicule and scorn
An actress he said, was a death wish
She left in ignorance, in bliss

So she stuck the powder in her nose
Every day the loneliness grows
The isolation takes its toll
She always plays the starring role
In the film about the fool that didn’t know
Stardom has a cost that doesn’t show
Behind the lights that always glow

Maybe someday we’ll be flying free
Erase the tragedy from our minds
Happiness is following us, you see?
Time shines brighter from behind

We’ll sail across the galaxy
Among the stars for which we lust
But we’ll never get out, you and me
Planet Hollywood owns us

All the fame and fortune in the world
Pursuit of happiness, not fulfillment
But when the next contract unfurls
We sign ourselves right back into it

The studios buy our lives over lunch
Take advantage of our crutch
We’ll escape, I know that much
With passion and a bit of luck

One day we’ll dance together
For no one but the two of us
That day we’ll fly free forever
Sever the ties we need to cut

Maybe someday we’ll be flying free
Erase the tragedy from our minds
Happiness is following us, you see?
Time shines brighter from behind

We’ll sail across the galaxy
Among the stars for which we lust
But we’ll never get out, you and me
Planet Hollywood owns us

The margin was razor thin, and the salacious clip had been shown in heavy rotation for three days on all channels. However, as the second sun rose in the west, breaking news flashed across the screen- “VIDEO DEBUNKED! GUILTY PARTY EXPOSED!”

There was no early voting. All voting was handled by Twitter in realtime, the results to be announced live at 7pm. And with movie budget production both sides released poignant melodramatic political ads, and then began the ultimate showdown- beauty vs ugly, so well made they played on the heartstrings of the people trying to make the case, and done so well many minds would be swayed.

Song #8- We’ll Turn Back the Clock - has lyrics, no music. Musical style most likely hard rock or Roxy/Billy blend.
(the song has two voices- the beauty side and the ugly side arguing their case. It seems to blend together after a while)

We’ll let these few in this one season
Then set them up for failure
The rumor mills will spread the dirt

Turn their own fan clubs against them
No one will hire them
No need to blackball them, they won’t get work

No one will want them
They’ll be pariahs
And in the heat of the outrage
We’ll hold a special election

And with good ol’ democracy
We’ll turn back the clock, you see
And everything will be OK
Just like the good old days

Now everyone probably knows
The sordid details all exposed
Wish they weren’t, I suppose
But I’m afraid it’s a little too late

U- You can try to turn back the clock
U- With all your dirty tricks
U- But we will give it our best shot
U- We’ll give it all we’ve got
U- For it’s our only hope
U- To get our side out to vote

B- We’ll turn back the clock
B- We’ll give it all we’ve got
U- Some things you can’t stop
B&U- But we’ll give it our best shot
U- To lose won’t be the end
B&U- But it won’t be OK
B&U- And we’ll be back again
B&U- To fight another day

Song #9- Freedom is Ugly - has lyrics, no music. Musical style open.
(the tone of the song should be anticlimactic and mostly optimistic befitting the happy ending)

So on with the show
The show must go on
Sentiments widely said
Though some felt the name of the show for so long
No longer properly fit

But they failed to think it all the way through
They failed to realize
We must learn how to see with our hearts and our minds
As much as we see with our eyes
For beauty is never skin deep
And ugliness a secret some keep
And whatever it is that you find
It’s better to see than be blind
Better to see than be blind

Freedom is ugly but it’s free
To be who you are, who you want to be
And we may never agree
But we are free to disagree
And when push comes to fashion
As it does on occasion
We’ll settle it with civility
With democracy

The cancellation was cancelled
The name remained the same
The ratings went through the roof
The losers were silent that day
Because one thing rules above all
Ratings are absolute proof
This train had arrived, its whistle blowing loud
By the time it left the station
Everybody was on board

Song#10- Planet Hollywood - has lyrics, no music. Musical Style Disco Fusion Space Rock.
(this song is gratuitous fun dance music)

Everything is new on Planet Hollywood
New California, New New York
New Beverly Hills, even New Hollywood
It’s a global studio and everything is good
On Planet Hollywood

On Planet Hollywood
They are filming everywhere
On Planet Hollywood
Everyone’s a player

On Planet Hollywood
The parties never stop
On Planet Hollywood
You party til you drop

On Planet Hollywood
Everybody gets a part
On Planet Hollywood
Everybody gets a start

On Planet Hollywood
Don’t be late for that rehearsal
On Planet Hollywood
It could be your first commercial

On Planet Hollywood
You’ll be busy night and day
On Planet Hollywood
You know what they say
On Planet Hollywood
Work as hard as you can play
On Planet Hollywood
There’s nothing in your way

There’s a train to New New Dehli
Which is no more than a set
Like all the cities, towns and places
You see labelled on a map
Whose crowds of native people
Are entirely digital
But it looks so believable
When you finally get to see it in a show
I swear you’d never know

On Planet Hollywood
They are shooting every day
On Planet Hollywood
Even in the rain

On Planet Hollywood
Everybody’s looking good
But you never need to say it
Because it’s understood
On Planet Hollywood

Looking good on Planet Hollywood
You can’t help it

Try your best for that audition
No matter how big or small
Every opportunity leads to a bigger one
It’s Planet Hollywood, after all

Make a melodrama
Or documentary
Take a chance
On a Romance
A little Comedy
Be my superhero
And come and rescue me
Put on your fancy pants
Do the Hollywood dance with me

Axatar Bishop:
Well I was in my tenth year of deep space time
I’d saved enough to retire, and due to the newly opened up immigration policy
And happening to be there, I was in the first group able to apply
I’d met a young starlet who was a dead ringer for Melanie Griffith
Who kind of dug my naturally rugged good looks as much as I did hers
But there was a lot more to us than that
I truly believe we are soul partners, lucky, lucky and lucky
And believe it or not, they offered me a role on a remake of an old TV series
As a starship captain galavanting around the galaxy
And kissing a different woman on every episode
It’s a five year mission, sounds right up my alley
And I won’t even have to leave home
Yeah, the Planet of Beautiful People is gonna be alright
I guess I’d say I’m settling down for my happy ending
But I never will forget the Interstellar Fur Traders trademark call
Freedom, fair dealing and fun for all

Background music flows into the final song.

Song#11- Planet of Beautiful People Orchestral Refrain - No or minimal lyrics, orchestral based on POBP Theme Song.
(imagine what might pop up on the show as background music from time to time)
(length not limited as this is where the credits are rolling and it depends on how much thematic development is developed)


#55

So the project is titled “Tales of the Interstellar Fur Traders”? I guess I thought it was titled Planet of Beautiful People, with that song being the ‘title track’.

Suggestion on lyric changes: Let us know what changed, or if we just need to start from scratch with the script every time. When I went to check Golden Age against what I had previously copied, it seemed easier to just copy over it with the new one than look for changes. That would get trickier if I had already made notes to my earlier version of the script …

I think you had asked if I would do the Captain Bishop narration. Is that ‘finished’ now in this new script? If I start recording it shouldn’t drastically change? And while I’m digesting the whole back story of Mink Stolen and this new project, can you give me some pointers on what Captain Bishop brings in terms of a backstory? Place of origin, voice, age, physical stature, philosophy, politics, flaws, vices, motivations, objectives?


#57

Your lyrics inspired me to write a new song.

Truck Driver Transvestite

Verse 1
I was alone in the woods masturbating
At this age I was not quite dating
When a ferret sunk its plastic vampire fangs into my cock
The erotic dishwasher cleaned the poison right off

Chorus
I want your poo poo in my mouth Mr. Truck Driver
Come here and sink your teeth into my nutter butter
I didn’t know the chimp belonged to the diver
Intergalactic homosexuals at Planet Hollywood

Verse 2
We charted space initially with communist monkies
My grandma’s a Ramen Noodle Junkie
These nanomachines can’t keep my sane
Get your spaceship out of my lane, bub

Bridge

I’m a lonely young boy with his hand in his pants
You call it perverse, it’s just a one handed romance
My peninsula of masculinity is ready to penetrate
The lies of Planet Hollywood, along with the hate

Chorus 2
I want your poo poo in my mouth Mr. Truck Driver
Come here and sink your teeth into my nutter butter
But I left my banjo back in my homeland, man
Next to the house with blue shutters


My monitoring rig is freaking out...can someone take a listen to this?

You’re a strange man, Clownpenis.fart.

Planet of Beautiful is Episode or “Tale” 2 of Tales of the Interstellar Fur Traders. Mink Stolen was the first “Tale”. So I would say our current project is Planet of Beautiful People, which is also the name of the “title track”. [quote=“Stan_Halen, post:55, topic:1640”]

[/quote]

I was worried about that, Stan, and you are right, I should be highlighting any changes at this point. My bad. What happens is I reread something and realize it might need some restructuring to fit better as lyrics for cadence and whatever. I will not try to do this too much, but I am hoping as we all start banging out parts we have, we might discover we need/want to make small adjustments, and I’m all for that. When you mesh your music (which I anticipate will be far cooler than I can imagine) with my words, you should have final say on edits. I don’t think you want to start from scratch, but you might decide revisions are in order to fit the music- for example, you might need to repeat lines, even a line that isn’t there now, as some chorus or vocal arrangement.

Your lyrics inspired me to write a new song.

Unfortunately, clown, I don’t want to deviate in this direction in this project lyrically. I’m sure we’ll find some narration to focus on shortly. The narration can be done before the soundtrack music is done. Most likely Ingo or whoever will fit the music to the words and vice versa.

I did add a bit to a couple places including the finale to bolster the plot line, Stan, and unless you personally want to alter it, please consider it finished now.

As to the captain, I imagine him not clean shaven, 6’ 200 lbs. athletic, an easy going fellow with a lot of self confidence and technical skills belying his gruff appearance, but Fur Traders are out there for six months at a trip, and when they are not dealing with flying the ship, they keep themselves entertained with hobbies. Some are artistic, many turn to music- guitar, drums, writing, whatever. He is well read and a good speaker.

He joined fairly young, in his mid twenties, after excelling at the space academy, and rose to captain in four years, about average. Fur Traders have to be quick witted, resourceful, diplomatic and pretty open minded to deal with the myriad cultures they encounter. They as a rule do not stick with the same routes because they all have a high quotient of curiosity, embracing the whole ‘boldly go’ philosophy. Free spirited, free thinking, quick to defend free will and fairness, they live by a code of honor. Origin could be any planet, even Earth. His biggest flaw is perhaps getting involved in problems outside the scope of his duties when he sees injustice. He is near the end of his career (radiation), and is OK with retiring to a planet based life somewhere, not necessarily on his home planet.

Ah, Stan, I see the typo in the script title- I am fixing that.

Also, one last edit on narration on Captain’s Log dates. I copied the same date in several places, as I hadn’t calculated the real dates when I was writing it. That would surely mess you up! I will fix those two things and post here again very shortly.
