Re: Where your rating is (Come Down reviews)

everything is constantly changing. "back in the day" does not exist as some kind of constant, just a trend that you happened to experience. You know, you're completely right. Sorry for wasting my time and yours, folks. I shouldn't have tried to change what you guys have going today. Even if it hasn...

Re: Where your rating is (Come Down reviews)

I don't care if you guys love or hate my songs. They could be your favorites, good, passable, poor, awful, or the single worst songs you've ever heard in your life. I take everything evenly; everyone has their tastes. Like I said, I write songs that I like to hear, and regardless of whether you're j...

Re: Where your rating is (Come Down reviews)

Oh cool, you know them. Which show did you attend? I didn't manage to make it (didn't have the money at the time, plus the closest was Chicago, iirc). Their new stuff is kinda disappointing. By the way, I meant to ask, since I don't know who you are: Did you enter this fight? If you took issue with ...

Life's great, thanks! Getting pretty much everything squared away, finally. Doing exactly what I want to be doing every single day. Life isn't perfect, but who's is? Thankfully, mine's better than it's been in years. Top 5 artists: They Might Be Giants (self-published through "indie major," whatever...

Re: RPM 2009

Yeah, I'm out. I got sick a few too many times to accomplish enough. I don't really mind, though, since it'll give me more time to be serious and deliberate in learning to mix properly. I'd hate to rush out a bad product.

heh, I don't mind if you typecast me as jaded rocker or whatever. I listen to a huge variety of musical styles. I was a classically trained percussionist, turned jazz quartet drummer, turned self-taught rocker. Some of my favorite songfighters have been from genres I never ordinarily listen to. Bric...

Dude's reviews are even more condescending than Jon Eric's. I only review SERIOUS ENTRIES. Not bathetic alt-rock anthems. No thanks. Old days. Old days. Let's get some real guitar in here. Real drums. Real rock and roll. You need some more rock. Flute? What the hell is this, London Philharmonkadonk...

hahah, wow, those are some fake sounding real drums to me, then. My bad. I guess you could stand to be a little more dynamic in your play, then but it was seriously not a criticism of that originally. Also, the Third Eye Blind comparison isn't saying you suck, it's just... I mean, listen to Jumper o...

Re: Where your rating is (Come Down reviews)

No songlove. Harsh but fair (and actually helpful) reviews only, like the old days. I did an initial listen-through of the entire fight the day it was posted, and the prevailing theme was that the songs were "okay... maybe good for songfight ," which is an altogether depressing label. I hope everyon...

Doctor Worm - Well, look at that, that sure is... happening for a long time. WTF? I... uh... maybe if I listen to that a second time, it'll make sense. Are these vocals in the beginning of the long part? I assumed that I missed a whole block of things but most of it doesn't seem to have any vocals,...

Re: 2-14-09

huh, finally another person who listens to Japanese music. You have some good choices of bands there, though not my favorite songs by any of them. We should talk, and more people should frequent songfight IRC anyway. Come in sometime.

Re: Easy Songs to Play Drums with

Simplicity isn't nearly as important as her familiarity with and love for the song she's playing. I got my start drumming by playing along to They Might Be Giants songs, even ones that had drum machines. I knew those songs inside and out, so I was able to focus on playing these new rhythms rather th...

Re: RPM 2009

(Boing.)

The FAWM thread is getting a bunch of updates, but everyone on this side of the recording challenge fence is silent. What gives?

I'm finishing up my second song today. My goal is a total of 15, which seems a little ridiculous with only 17 days left, but I can record quickly when necessary.

The Wrestler

Just finished it. It was very good, but difficult to watch. I'm practically a wrestling encyclopedia, so rarely does anything wrestling-related shock me, but even so, it was strenuous to watch, especially the hardcore match. Rourke did a phenomenal job being the washed-up, difficult to watch aged wr...
