Hey folks ... been a while (Like over 10 years I think).

Firstly .. apologies for all those who were hoping for more of the VSL Podcast. I did fully intend to do more, and even tried to restart it a few times but in moving to BC Canada, and struggling with jobs, money .. marriage .. all the usual stuff (all of which kinda fell apart on me), a lot of things got buried and I ended up doing regular day job work to keep myself going.

I pretty much stopped making music after 2014, with the occasional exception. I turned instead to creating 3D art and using that for making comics .. and also editing film and TV shows. Music got put on the back burner.

But recently I got into photographing luxury watches for a local shop and creating some nice videos to go along with them. And in this case I got to use my editing skills .. but also my music skills again. And my latest review video was for a knock-off version of the new 'James Bond: No time to die' watch .. which I call the 'No Dime to buy' watch (because the real thing costs $14,000 CAD :O). Anyways .. I made a bit of a James Bond Gunbarrel opening for the video and couldn't help myself but to recreate the entire bond theme.

Those old hands here will maybe remember that I performed a version of the Bond theme using the First Edition of the VSL. At the time I was pretty proud of it but listening to it recently I figured I could do much better.

So .. without further ado .. here's my new version of the Bond theme:

https://www.dropbox.com/s/rlxtzhzctbvg4s9/No%20Dime%20to%20Buy%20-%20Gunbarrel%20and%20Theme%20Final%20Long%20Version.mp3?dl=0

And also the Video version. This is a final draft and will have some differences to the release version. I animated the figure doing the Bond walk. This guy is not Bond .. but he is the Bad guy from my comic stories. I gave him and custom Black and gold Omega Seamaster to wear so he seemed the right fit for the intro. He's also the avatar for my youtube channel.

And those interested to see what I'm upto .. here's my youtube channel of watch porn:

Music was made with VSL Special Edition. Dimension Strings, Chamber Strings, Double Bass, Epic Horns, Epic Trumpets, IK Multimedia Basses and vibes, Steve Slate Drums, Logic instruments, and my good buddy Richard Scorgie performing the guitar stuff.

Thanks for enjoying ... if you didn't enjoy it ... well .. scroll on by :P

A high-accuracy fake; perhaps one of the very best out there of the Bond Theme in the the digital emulation game. You have my congratulations for that.

But alas, to be frank, in the context of the video it makes me uncomfortable and somewhat depressed. It reminds me inescapably that I'm also in the fakery game; yet even so, I'd really rather not associate myself (nor indeed VSL) in any way with knock-off watchmakers in China. I do hope you can understand that.

Anyway, well done for producing an excellent fake; great strings, great brass, good drums; and all very expressive. And very well done Richard Scorgie for nailing Vic Flick's original electric guitar part so well - hopefully a real element in the production. Can this mockup pass serious listening as the real thing? Nah, no chance, but that's more a reflection of the current technical state-of-the-art in digitally emulating real performances of music.
