Welcome to The WhiteRabbitMix Blog
Hey everyone! Welcome to my brand-spankin’ new blog. I’m going to try and keep it short, sweet and simple, since I’m not all that good at keeping up on blogs and updates and things like that. However, I do like talking and writing about pop music, especially the music I grew up on during my teenage years in the late 90’s/early 00’s.
Hopefully, if you’re here on my blog, you know of my Youtube channel. If not, here’s a handy dandy link just for you
I create megamixes, which are medleys of songs, usually by a single artist or group, put together. For example, you can have a megamix of all of Britney’s songs, or all of Beyonce’s hits. Now I’m not a DJ, not even in the slightest. I just enjoy pop music and I’ve always loved creating it. The teen pop renaissance of the late 90’s happened when I was ten or eleven. I fell in love with Britney, Christina, Spice Girls, Backstreet Boys, NSYNC — and all the glossy, overproduced, manufactured and marketed pop groups and artists that came after them. I wanted to be like them. I bought every record and single Britney and Mandy put out. I copied their dance routines and roped my poor friends into doing them with me. I dressed like them — which looking back probably wasn’t the best idea. I mean, Britney wore this:
And by golly, did I want that outfit so bad.
Anyway, my love for pop music and the pop scene never went away. I still love the music and you can tell me that there’s way better stuff out there and I won’t argue with you on that. But I still enjoy it.
I’ve been making mixes for about two or so years. I saw some mixes already on youtube of artists and groups that I liked and it seemed like something I’d like to try. I was really horrible when I started. I think I’m fairly good now — I’m definitely still improving — but I was awful when I started. The first mixes on my channel are not my first mixes. My first mix on my channel was a Lady GaGa one that has since been taken down. I’m pretty sure that was my tenth mix and my third Lady GaGa one, at least.
When I started, I was doing audio mixing on Windows movie maker and they came out as badly as you’d expect from Movie Maker. I really had a lot to learn. Eventually, I put in the money and got FL Studio and that’s where I do all of my audio mixing now. For my videos, I use Sony Vegas Pro. I’m no pro in either program and I’m definitely still learning both, but I enjoy the process and I enjoy all the feedback and comments I get from the people who watch my videos.
For me, it’s all about improving and getting better and better, and enjoying it while you do so. Creating mixes and videos is one of my favorite hobbies and it’s really something I love doing. I don’t expect it to ever go past my Youtube channel. Only one or two people who know me know about my channel or what I spend hours upon hours doing. I’m still surprised that, at the time of this post, I have 300 subscribers. That’s astounding to me and it makes me want to do better and better. I figured a blog would be the next step in hopefully opening up to other people I know about my time-comsuming hobby.
I also have a second channel where I do lyric videos, but that’s not nearly as interesting.
