That'll never happen, I don't have an iPhone.

Nice sound designs.

Lol this story about the phone in the pumpkin pie filling is ridiculous. "Sank in like quicksand-sand-sand-sand" haha. As far as the music, I really like the increase of energy in the last half. Also that bass sounds really good too, like a drill.

I could not have forseen what this tale would be about even if I tried really hard hahahahaha! Great presentation for the anecdote, I like those synths and the thick delays! Poor phone!

Lol thank you. Actually happened by accident. I fiddled around on some keyboard and my friend was listening to it while another friend told us the story and we both had the story recorded (me not even thinking about it in connection to the song) so he showed his recording to us where he was listening to our other friend speak and my song at the same time and we really thought it was funny. So I spent all night pulling the clean recording and mixing this up.

Haha, this is the cautionary tale?  That’s so awesome.  Why did he have an open can of pie filling in his car?  Something tells me I’ll always check before putting my phone in the cup holder now, so thank you for your service.

Hahaha. You're very welcome, we've got to get the word out about pumpkin pie filling. As for why? That is the eternal question. Sure, he's offered an explanation, but I don't know if I buy it.

I don't like pumpkin pie, and I don't think they sell pie filling in cans here, but that's kind of secondary.

Was just sitting dozing off and then that huge voice made me sit right up lol. Very cool use of effects and synths to support that speech, that's a pretty cool way to get the story across. Very nice!
