Re: Beyond Yacht Rock

Nobody does Karaoke with as much enthusiasm as my Vietnamese neighbors. When I hang out with them I play acoustic guitar and the most fun we have is all the Soft Rock Classics. Here in the Bay area we have a band called Mustache Harbor. Their setlist is a lot of these songs. http://mustacheharbor.co...

Re: Nur Ein XII - Round Seven

Nur Ein XII – Finals Review I like albums. I like album sides. For the end of this Nur Ein, I want to hear you’re a-Game. I want to hear something a little epic, something that is the appropriate ending to this journey we’ve been on. Nur Ein 3 was the last 4 way finals battle. WSA came out on top, a...

Re: The New Ugly podcast episode 7 - Nur Ein XII round 6

I can't get to the right spot to take the survey. I'd love it if you guys kept doing the podcast (obviously). I mean it's a podcast about my favorite hobby with my beloved community, of course, I'd love it if you kept doing it. I know it's a lot of work. You guys should do it, as long as it's fun fo...

Re: Nur Ein XII - Round Seven

How will voting work?
Does each artist get one vote? or do we all rank the 4 finalists top to bottom?

If it's one vote each I expect more daring songs if it's ranking I expect more conservative songs.

Re: The New Ugly podcast episode 5 - Nur Ein XII round 4

That was a long one! I enjoyed every minute. Weird round for Cavedwellers. The feedback we got was mostly positive. High rankings from j$ and Travis and Ben. Mike made clear why he ranked us low. Andy and Bill never explained why they ranked us so low. We were lucky to have submitted at all. My comp...

Does everyone know about this amazing book "Eunoia"? It's in the poetry section. I picked up a copy on Penn Jillette's recommendation. Each vowel has a personality. Each chapter only uses one vowel. You can read it online here: https://web.archive.org/web/20090224192107/http://archives.chb...

RIP Chris Cornell

What a frontman!
I saw his solo band in 1999. That guy was awesome.
I'm sad I won't see him again.

Re: Nur Ein XII Round Five

This is good to hear. The current version of the Cavedwellers song has pretty much one chord and one repeated phrase. It's great for getting trancey but doesn't seem smart for a competition. It's just "prominent", it's not just one note at a steady pulse for 3 minutes. I wonder where the t...

Re: Nur Ein XII Round Five

I'm curious. The band Can seems like the perfect model for this challenge. Yet I doubt you really want 8 and 9minute songs. Also my favorite Can song I don't think would pass the challenge. Would it? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QxGaC4wzt50 (Once covered by BLT and Paco del Stinko, but I can't fi...

Re: The New Ugly podcast episode 4 - Nur Ein XII round 3

Well that was a brutal beating. I haven't the foggiest idea what boundaries you thought the Cavedwellers were pushing. I thought all the rhythms melodies and chords were rather standard rock. Thanks for the bass playing compliments! ( both Cavedwellers and Balance Lost) I'm going a little nuts tryin...
