SO, I’ve been listening to the puppycat song pretty much nonstop. It’s so good. I just wanna point out my favorite part — the very end. The end of the song ends completely unresolved. Not just lyrically, but compositionally. The melody of the song ends on the dominant of the scale, to those who don’t know what that means, it’s the point of the scale with the most tension. The dominant always returns to a tonic. an example of this would be to sing a major scale and on the fifth note—if this is solfege (do re mi fa sol la ti do, like in the sound of music) the note is sol—on the fifth note just stop, if done correctly it should sound uneasy, unfinished. This is purposefully done and it reflects the lyrics (or made up lyrics?) so incredibly well, I just wanted to dork out about it…
Here’s a ten minute loop of the puppycat song. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-25GW8ah_Gk

Head on over for a meh time!
Last semester my computer’s device driver got stuck in an infinite loop (less cool than it sounds,) but I’ve recently received a new computer and plan on posting stuff I find on the less desirable portions of the internet. Also music, cause I like that shit.
