    :p glad you liked it! I just wanted it to sound as silly as possible like everytime mainstream media makes fun of Randy.

    But of course! And it's a real doodle!

    Great song! The windmill verse is the best part. I love the music video and when it shows Noodle playing her guitar on the edge of the cliff. Gives suspense.

    You mean like fan song covers or when they have guests over?

    It is a great song as well.

    My concern for this supposed TV series is that the production values won't be as impressive as the music videos are, the way they combine 3D and 2D (no pun intended) animation so effortlessly . . . but animated series are usually almost sausage factory work with small, meager budgets, and we may end up with something like this:

    At this point it's just a wait and see deal. :smirk:

    Well, I can almost garantee that it won't be nearly as fluent and beautiful as the music videos, but most major animation looks pretty good nowadays. Heck, even flash is looking a lot smoother and less cheap.

    Pentatonix did a great medley of SS tunes where they included some rarer songs like "Just One Me," "Four, and "Five People in My Family." They even used the Pinball Number Count theme as an instrumental interlude of sorts.

    However, I agree that those five songs you mentioned are getting a bit worn out. I'm waiting for the day when someone covers "Telephone Rock" or "Rebel L." Or even better, "Mary Had a Bicycle." :) :sing:

    Ooh, someone could do an "Evolution of Sesame Street" medley for their 50th, like they did with Michael Jackson and Beyonce.

    Sesame Street had a numbers song medley with Pantatonix, maybe there should be a letters song medley with some music grouc (maybe even Pentatonix again). Maybe include ABC-DEF-GHI, J Friends, La La La (or The National Association of W Lovers), D Duah Duah (or Disco D), and I in the Sky (and maybe C is for Cookie if they feel they have to...).

    Seeing this, it would be cool for the 50th anniversary to bring us an "Evolution of Sesame Street" DVD. I often think about ideas for Sesame Street DVDs, especially for the anniversaries, but now I'm thinking for the 50th anniversary, maybe have the selected clips be stuff that are more-or-less period pieces. Stuff that people can tell are from the eras they're from. Not timeless-enough Muppet or animation segments that were repeated for decades, but stuff where characters look a way they wouldn't for long, characters dressed in styles that weren't popular for too long, parodies of things people have forgotten about, appearances by celebrities who were near their fifteenth minute of fame, disco tunes, characters who were only active for a season or two... Though some of those things mentioned were repeated for years after they were dated. Then again, a better title for something like that (better than "Evolution of Sesame Street") would be "Sesame Street Keeping with the Times". And it might be hard to include current stuff as you never know what will be dated in a few years.

    It would be cool if there was an official "Evolution of..." release for a single song that's been remade/reperformed many times. Like "Evolution of Rubber Duckie", "Evolution of Sing", "Evolution of The People in Your Neighborhood", etc. (and maybe "evolution" is the wrong word here). It'd make a cool audio release (though it might work better as a digital release), or a video release (though maybe a Warner Archive release would be better for this), or a special bonus feature on a DVD (could be a good trend for bonuses on DVDs released during the 50th anniversary year), or maybe just make it one of those clip "collections" that Sesame Workshop puts on its YouTube channel. An "Evolution of..." thing for the characters would also be cool.

    For all the problems that @LittleJerry92 and I face with Adobe Premiere from time to time, one thing I will praise about more recent versions of the program are Adjustment Layers: great way to apply effects to your entire timeline without having to do it for each and every individual clip.

    Adobe premiere is still better than avid media composer though.

    Let's be honest.

    To be honest,

    I'd love to see someone cover Telephone Rock. That song is partially why I wore out my first copy of the Rock & Roll VHS.

    Who would you want to cover it?

    Hmmmm.....

    Well, going by vocals of Cerf, Hunt and Nelson,

    Alvin Chea of Take 6 providing Nelson's bass vocals
    Steve Perry doing Cerf's vocals
    Michael McDonald doing Hunt's vocals
    And I guess Rolland Gift of Fine Young Cannibals doing lead?

    Never tried Avid.

    The only other thing I've tried was Sony Vegas to familiar myself for a potential job offer, and admittedly, I found it to be an uglier, less user-friendly version of Adobe Premiere.

    Be thankful. Be very thankful. That program actually made me throw a chair across my apartment when I had to use it to finish a project for my Digital Editing 2 class.

    If that doesn't say something, I dunno what does.

    I'm just looking forward to having to mix audio separately again since that new license with Dolby means Dolby Digital audio is no longer supported in Adobe Premiere on older operating systems.

    And by looking forward to it, I mean I'm dreading it like a sickness . . . I mean, that was one of the big pluses for me getting Adobe Premiere - I could edit video and audio in the same program, in the same timeline, thus cutting out excess work.

    At this point, I think you're better off switching to Final Cut.

    @D'Snowth might like this, but um....

    There's a very low budget open-world game based off the music video for "19-2000" where you can drive on the bridge and just cruise around. It used to have the song play in the background and then silence when it finished. Now.... It's just not there anymore. :(
