https://soundcloud.com/dedrokstarz/diary-of-a-madman Originally a serious track called "medieval," I was trying to record some ahhs and not having much luck. Suddenly I was inspired to go into a sort of nonsense voiceover (with a nod to the Beatles and Lewis Carroll).
I've been having a ball playing around with all sorts of new software. I recently switched my old "frankenstein" computer (the one I made on Halloween out of two dead computers) to Xubuntu 16.04, which is a Linux operating system. It's been a great adventure.
