That wanker moot thinks he can leave so smoothly, eh? /a/, let's show him what for with one grand farewell song and make that faggot cry bitch tears of joy!
Audacity, for recording your own voice: http://audacity.sourceforge.net/
/a/ sings from a few years back: https://www.mediafire.com/?0jkio8klpza23m4
Same song with my part, for reference and equal shame: https://www.mediafire.com/?b9zzs16a4vuie6s
Lyrics, with my intro and outro: http://pastebin.com/EVgyq4w5
The actual song starts at ~0:51, and ends proper at ~7:40.
How to remove noise:
>have 1-2 seconds of silence recorded in the area you'll be singing, preferably indoors (I already woke up my family)
>go to Effect > Noise Removal > Get Noise Profile
>click on your audio track, which should have you select your entire singing part
>Effect > Noise Removal > OK
Then File > Export > mp3 and send it to my email: [email protected]
I'll handle the mixing after that. Make your submission count!
I aim to present our collective farewell song to him during his livestreamed YouTube Q+A session, so the deadline for submissions would be ~12:00 PM EST; I need 30-60 minutes to make all our submissions meld.
If you want all the other boards to sing, direct them here with this link: >>120197655
/co/ should also sing this:
/v/ should also sing this:
If they want to collab those, get someone there to organize it, I can't manage 3 different songs on such short notice, damn you, moot!
Just sing your length part so I can just throw it in. I need to attach it from the beginning, so mux your part into one clip. If you wanna say your own words, go ahead, since I think a madness of voices would suit this place.
I owe him my life for making this hub, you either want to jump in or not.
I'm just worried about how many submissions I'll get by then. Blame moot's fast departure. I may just do an end-of-month setup also, but I want to make him cry at his livestream.
I'm chancing that everyone wants to get their word in, so the intro and outro are also fair game to overwrite. I'll send him each of your parts separately as well, if you want him to hear you specifically.
v v forwardslash v
pirates are cool
pirates are cool neck
console games are gay
the master race
forwardslash v neck
Hm, the self-direct link got wonky. Try this (remove hyphens): >>>-/a/-120197655
They can choose another song- ah, I got it.
Whatever works, but I'm only compiling /a/'s submissions.
>I'm chancing that everyone wants to get their word in, so the intro and outro are also fair game to overwrite. I'll send him each of your parts separately as well, if you want him to hear you specifically.
Do both--combine them and also send them separately. Or maybe post all of the intros and outros that you've gotten and we can include the 20 best or whatever at the beginning/end.
I don't wanna weed out any added words from anyone else's submission, I'm just gonna slap it in.
And I'm giving him the complete mixed and individual versions on the 31st, but the mix for the livestream will be cut off at noon on the dot. If you miss the deadline today, you can still get a shot for the finale submission.
Reminder, guys: your part has to be easy to add from the beginning! I'm not gonna do any extra splicing or track movement.
Yes, if you don't mind your own intro/outro being swallowed by our cacophany of voices, you can just throw it in. I'm not gonna have each of them be heard in a free spot during the QA, though.
His poor site almost made as much impact as SA and newsgroups, he should be proud. Even if it's now mostly populated by teens sprouting the same old shit from a decade ago, he had a good run from 03-08.
Lets just ride out the next year as more background changes are slowly implemented and we're no longer allowed to discuss any hot/controversial topics.
I want moot to leave. I haven't been able to stand that loser ever since /q/ and his crusae to eliminate fun at the expense of 'on topic discussion.
Fuck him. The new admin will probably worse, but at least that will finally kill 4chan instead of keeping it in a fucked up limbo that sucks the dick of people who get their feelings hurt too easly. Fuck moot.
I will miss him though. He's done a lot of good and wasn't always a huge fag, but it's time for him to cut his losses and go. Maybe 4chan will finally die without him.
Yes, 1 MP3 file, silence filler is fine.
I better not expect someone trying a 20-minute submission, that's just overkill.
ANYTHING EXTRA AFTER YOUR 10-MINUTE MARK WILL BE CUT FROM THE LIVESTREAM MIX.
No, I mean, just sheet music that shows how the sung melody goes--it would be a lot easier than having to practice a couple times and try to memorize the flow of the melody while singing along to lyrics.
Oh, great! That looks perfect. I'll download them and .zip them up and post the link here in a bit for others' convenience.
Well, unless I'm mistaken, the livestream is on Friday, right? And it's Thursday right now, so you'd have plenty of time regardless of whether the deadline is noon EST Thursday or noon PST Thursday.
Alternatively you could extend the deadline to noon EST Friday or even a bit earlier, like 11 AM Friday, which would work a lot better in my opinion.
No worries. That being said, I'd still recommend either (1) setting the deadline to 11 AM Friday and/or (2) making a version at 11 AM just in case moot's definition of "afternoon" is something ridiculous like 12:01 PM Friday (and then making another, fuller version at noon if moot turns out to be using a reasonable definition of "afternoon"). Just in case, y'know?
Oh god I knew I told myself I should at least try to learn how to sing, at least in key, now putting that off is coming to bite me in the ass. I can't sing in anything other than in the completely monotone voice that sounds like a sixteen year old basement dweller.
>make sure your submission starts from the very beginning, even if there's lots of silent filler.
Blah. I can visit my friend later if I get a good rest, but the adrenaline and this comp are chaining me to my awareness.
Anyone tried singing the song yet? It's kinda tough, I'm really having difficulty with the upper registers.
I kind of want to post one of my in progress recordings but it's too embarrassing. I'll do it if someone else posts theirs first.
I guess, as long as you tell me which timestamps for which parts. Man, I'm just too soft.
3 anons came in for now, but there'll be quite a lot more after I realized I made the livestream mix deadline way too soon.
>talk during intro
Only if you want to. When the actual lyrics come up, I don't want too many guys doing freestyling or anything.
Once the actual lyrics are sung (~5:30?) then you can freestyle.
>That seems like it could get chaotic.
That's what makes this beautiful. /a/ is a cacophony of voices, and every last one of them wants to be heard.
O-okay, h-here I go...
Here's mine, /a/non. I really liked yours!
i would normally never do anything like this on account of my voice being nails on a chalkboard but i guess this is a special occasion
This is a test, I'm super insecure with my voice. It's my weakest point and I'm not sure if I should try the whole thing maybe when nobody is home. Is it maybe at least 2/10?

What a huge fagetry I've seen here?
;_; Fuck you moot. Live well and have nice future. You're still young.
It's because he doesn't want to do it, but his gf told him that she wouldn't let him watch her fuck other guys if he didn't.
I'm pretty sad that normalfag SJWs have gotten to moot.
He's not going anywhere.
He'll just be retiring the admin trip and dicking around anonymously, while never getting banned despite all his shitposting.
Odds are the new mods/admins will still refer to moot on issues they're unsure of and he still owns the site.
You autistic cunts and your crying over non-issues like GAYMUR GATE.
Jesus christ, you completely blew it out of proportion, wouldn't shut up then acted like you were some righteous crusaders.
If you had 2 brain cells you would have just remembered that all video game "journalism" has always been shit and ignored it.
But you had to keep going.
Also that Aussie cunt didn't help.
My hands are full here, how about you have everyone in /v/ do Erasure's Always (aka HARMONY HARMONY OH LOVE) for his livestream? If not, I'll have to do it after the stream and deadline it on the 31st.
People are saying this is our faulth, is this true?
Yep you created the stupid GG, don't any of you know real world is full of corruption and it is a part and parcel of every field, gaming is also an industry which falls in the real world, hence corruption exist there too.
Honestly, people give /v/ and /pol/ too much credit here. The GG shit was retarded but I seriously doubt that alone caused moot to leave, maybe it was just the last straw. If you read his blog, you will see that he has been long getting tired of this site and the internet as a whole. It was inevitable.
I doubt any one bit of retardation pushed Moot over the edge. Running this site must be very time consuming, and he's been doing it for over an entire decade. That's a long time for anybody to be doing anything, especially something as exhausting and increasingly unrewarding as running this site.
I'm sure Moot misses the old days more than anyone else, so I can understand him finally getting sick of riding herd on the increasing amount of retards.
/pol/ is the #1 worst board because /b/, while terrible, doesn't shit up other boards nearly as much as /pol/ crossboarders do. /pol/fags have a physical need to push their ideals on every other non-political board and then act like they're being martyred when people tell them to stop derailing shit.
This, if you read his blog posts, you will see that he's stopped using social networking sites and generally started lowering the time he spends on the internet.
He probably became too normal for this place, and felt it was dragging him down. It's a shame, really, because that made him detached from his own site and led to multiple conflicts between mods and us (like the lolicaust and similar events) because he had no idea what's actually happening.
I believe that it's a wrong decision for him, since simply stepping down will not change the fact that he's "the 4chan guy" in the eyes of everyone, with no marketable skills and a bad public reputation. It's also bad for us, since mods are keeping together and there will be no one who will have the power over them when they do stupid shit.
Moot is tired man. He's a one man show and has been for a long time. He even got into debt and was still living with his mom. Even if he moves on and gets a good job, there's always a possibility he can come back as an angel looking over the website. But you can't blame him for leaving. What /v/ /pol/ and /b/ did was the last straw that broke the mootlekins back; and boy did he get grilled.
Let's not divulge into this seperate topic. It's going to derail and cause chaos. We are here to sing. Plus anyway, we all know the actual boards that are shit. Problem is, if we delete them; they'll start invading other boards like /a/. Moot knows this, which is why he decided not to delete them for good.
If anything was bad for 4chan, it was the creation of /pol/ and not destroying /v/ and keeping it just /vg/ and /vr/. Regardless, I hope moot understands how much he's helped /a/non by creating this site. It's an understatement to say he inspired people. He fucking gave us a gift no other internet site was able to give; a loving community that understands each other with no BS
You sound like a politician starting his campaign, and speaking honestly, it's quite disgusting. We get the memo, you'd be far better administrator than moot. Why not start your own site then?
And who would this "someone" be on such short notice? If no one else decided to take up the mantle of muxing everyone's voices, then my thread would be dead in the water. The reins called for me.
Me, a politician, playing patsy to everyone for my selfish gain? I'd rather be the writer with his crowd of fans supporting him.
Besides, this place's natural volatility is something I wholeheartedly want.
