Hi Octet fans. Epsecially Jason Mabie fans. With the permission of "the man" himself, I am able to post 5 songs that were recorded by Jason. These were done at a Karaoke studio, 3 or 4 years ago, for fun.
PS - These open in RealPlayer.
1.) Long December - Counting Crows.
2.) I Got A Woman - Ray Charles
3.) Against the Wind - Bob Seger
4.) Beyond the Sea - Bobby Darin
5.) No Woman, No Cry - Bob Marley
It's also great to know that this is the type of great music that Jason likes. Leave your comments on his singing!
On a funny note, I took a nap and had a dream that Aroon Vijaykar came over to play PS3 with me and my roomates kids! Hahahaha...
Last night I dreamed about the Octet again. I don't dream about them a lot, and what comes up in the dreams are usually pretty benign (as this dream will tell you.) They usually show up, do something (have coffee, give advice, help with customers) - and then leave.
I dreamed that the Octet (and more) were doing some sort of choreo'd street performance remeniciant of Michael Jackson's "Beat It", or Pat Benatar's "Love is a Battlefield". Hahaha. Ben soloed. The song had to do with love, though I can't remember the title. Don't you hate it when you can't remember part of your dream?!? The harder you try, the worse it gets! I want to say it was Wannabe by The Spice Girls, but it wasn't. Also, the guys weren't wearing the blue suits, but you could tell they were the Octet. And there were other people in group besides the Octet, also dancing. (L-l-ladies.) My P.O.V. was from up high, and through a camera, which I pulled out when I realized what was going on. So, in this dream I had no interaction with them at all. :(
This may have been brought on by bad chicken...or good chicken...or excitement over the Hawaii reunion. That was my Octet dream.
Do you dream about the guys? What happens in those dreams? And any Octet dudes who might read this: how do you feel about it? Is it creepy or sort of cool?
One funny thing I'd like to relate is that I had an awesome weird James Bondian/Octet hero dream that was...um, I think due to the post Christmas strange food/drink combo I had before I went to bed. Yeah, it was awesome like James Bond, but it was also weird like Willie Wonka...and when I woke up (before the story should have ended) it kinda looked like I was turning out to be a villain, which kinda disappointed me. But then, I put it down to the food and drink and not to what I actually think of myself. I actually think I'm a geek and not any kind of femme fatale, and villains aren't geeks. Ever. No way. Unless they're femme fatales pretending to be geeks, which is quite possible.
On to my actual posts, now. Right now. Here goes. I love Octet dudes! 2 of them wrote to me after my Christmas post.
I'd just like to share them with you. The first was anonymous again. Oooooh, mystery. I like! Also, he provided a little bit of back story on the great fun that the Octet dudes were having in the Silent Night photo montage.
Comments: Hey there! Thanks for putting up the videos and being such a stellar fan. Your website it really neat! That front image from the silent night video was at our celebration party for winning ICCAs. A bottle of champagne per member. Whooo, what a night! Anyways, Merry Christmas to you and yours, and a happy, Octet-filled new year.
The second was from Aroon, the new Octet dude. I was really surprised, since I only just mentioned him on the last post as being the new guy. Maybe I should just make a post that mentions all Octet dudes, past and present, and see what happens.
Name: Aroon Vijaykar
Comments: Hey there, thanks for keeping this blog going. You're right we should get an Octet historian...I'll put your name up for contention with the guys! And we are competing this year so hopefully you can make it down for ICCA's or our Spring Show 2010!
First, let's call it official: I love the new guy. 2nd, I would love to be the historian for the Octet. 3rd, I'd love to come down and see either Spring Show or the ICCA's or both. Zowie! If my school schedule (and funds) permit, color me there, Octet dude.
Back to sleep, now.
