Busted: The Fan-Made Music Video

April 8, 2010

3 years ago, I woke up from a strange dream about Squidward, hackeysack, and Anne Curry with the sudden desire to write and record rap songs about my dreams. The project was mostly just an excuse to break in my new microkorg synthesizer and do something with myself musically after leaving my band in Maine. 3 years later, I’m back doing what I love; playing guitar in a punk band, while my dream rap project has gone dormant. I still put on my DreamRapper hat from time to time to entertain new friends, but it’s basically just stays as another notch on my quirk card. I haven’t posted anything in over a year, the Switchpod service that I was using to host my songs has folded so none of the songs work anymore. The Dream Rapper project was slowly dying.

Then, out of nowhere, someone contacted me and asked if he could make a music video for my song, Busted (The Unicycle Rap). “Of course!” I replied. I was just happy to see someone else take a little inspiration from something silly that I made. A few weeks later when he finally sent me a link to video he made, I couldn’t stop laughing. He did a great job at putting together the visuals of my ridiculous dream story line. Check it out for yourself and give him some love in the comments. Great job!

1 1/2 Years Later – Dream Rap #5

February 4, 2009

I started this project in 2007 and quickly had 5 crazy dreams to rap about. The first 4 songs came together fairly quickly, but the last one needed a female vocalist for the chorus. It took me a little while, but I finally got my friend Lairen to work with me. Once that was done, I just had to sit back down and fix one little thing. Wouldn’t you know that it took this procrastinator a year and a half to actually do it. That’s a long time to be sitting on a song that’s less than a minute and 20 seconds long. Oh well. Without further ado, here is Backwards, the 5th and final Dream Rap by Kyle D featuring Lairen Dicroce.

Dream Rap #3 – Samurai

This rap came from the strangest and most memorable dreams I’ve ever had. If it ever becomes the subject of a movie, this rap would be the perfect theme song. It features myself as a Samurai, saving a village from acid-spitting salesmen in bunny suits from the sewers. Let me know what you think.

It’s summertime now, so that means a little less time inside making silly raps and more time outside playing disc golf and unicycling (you know, typical rap artist activities). But fear not, I’m working on a few dream rap musical collaborations. If you would like to lend your audio/video talents to my dream rap project, please let me know.

Here is the second Dream Rap to come out since starting this project. The dream occurred a few weeks after seeing the movie 300. This also marks the first time my wife has appeared in a dream rap, and the first time she dies as well. I hope that doesn’t become a regular occurrence. If she dies in too many dream raps, she may have to pull the plug on the whole thing. Feel free to comment and offer your own interpretations.

Here is the first Dream Rap, the one that inspired the whole project. I really just woke up after this dream and starting rhyming with it. I’m not sure if I should write out the story of the dream or just let the song tell it. Let me know what you think in the comments.
