Lately Chris has been trying to figure out how we can use our skills and strengths to make Heaps of Money. This is funny because I've been trying to figure out how to use Chris' skills and strengths to make heaps of money for years.
This morning it was all rainbows and sunshine and twinkly lights and I knew I had the key to early retirement.
Have you seen the making of Prodigy's SMBU? It's the only way I can get Chris to listen to Prodigy. It shows how the mix was made - copying and pasting samples, changing the pitch, etc. Chris uses that kind of stuff all the time. Just not for Prodigy.
We have friends who have a rock and roll band and also a kids band. The kids band is the cash cow. Kids music is the answer, my friends.
We have kids. We have technology. We will start a band called Progeny, in which kids sing Prodigy covers.
We'll use samples from our current kid music library, like Dan Zanes' "hellooooooo" from his song House Party. It will be genius I tell you.
Chris thinks we should change the words. I think that defeats the purpose but I considered it in an attempt to humor him. I suppose we could change "smack" to "snack" but then we'd get sued for all the resulting eating disorders. He said "smack" is not the problem, which is disturbing because after all this time I had no idea he was pro-recreational drugs for kids/corporal punishment.
He says we could change the line to "snack my dish up" and now I have "change my pitch up/ snack my dish up" stuck in my head. A clear sign that it will be HUGE.
Chris agrees my idea is the key to early retirement. He says we'll never work in this town again.
He must think we'll have to move when Disney hires us.
