Re: Nur Ein XIV, Final Round: Survival

Chumpy and Ryan, Thanks for the review! Love the podcast! (I need to finish listening). Concerning the Kraken Lives, the last line of the Chorus has a key change, I bet that Ryan doesn't like that key change. Kudos to Chumpy for mostly getting the lyrics! I'm not sure whether you guys picked up on t...

Re: Nur Ein XIV, Final Round: Survival

Congrats Vowl Sounds!
I am very impressed with the commitment to the Ouija-verse!
Is the story over? How many more songs complete the concept album?

Congrats to Agony Sauce on a good final song, and a hard faught Nur Ein. One of my bands went for AS, one went for VS. It was a close call. Good job!

Re: Songwriting competition judging mechanisms

Finally in terms of actual systems, the easiest thing to do in order to prevent outcomes that feel “unjust” is simply to weight the top. In Nur Ein, after round Zero you could give a top rank a +3 point value, 2nd rank +2, 3rd rank +1, everything else as same...... I'd like to bet on Rain Watt to w...

Re: Songwriting competition judging mechanisms

1. Ban auto-tune 2. get rid of challenges, they ruin creativity and songs 3. Don't let Nur Ein become Spin Tunes, keep Spin Tunes Spin Tunes, keep Nur Ein Nur Ein but seriously, It'd be nice to know how each judge judges, and what is valuable to them. I'd like to know ahead of time how they hate Dav...

Re: Nur Ein XIV Round Six "You Too"

so we should stick to variations on 1-4-5 so that the chords don't really inform or guide the melodies?

Re: Nur Ein XIV Round Four "No Memory"

There's just too much Spin Tunes in our Nur Ein this year. Nothing against Spin, I think he has come over to the Nur Ein culture. Chumpy and Ryan however are way too nice.

Re: Nur Ein XIV Round Three "Color Me _____"

I listened to your cover Glenn. I like it better than the PRG version. You used timeless orchestration and you're a far better singer than that dude. That said, it still had the same effect. It triggered an uncontrollable urge to listen to BB King: How Blue Can You Get https://www.youtube.com/watch?...
