Re: Song Fight! Live(Stream) - September 2020

Uploaded another short song, and an "inspiration behind the song" .txt file. Use it or not.

I'm about half-way through watching last Saturday. Loving it. The Jerkatorium video was so crazy, with Bread and Puppets, that I abandoned my "Sitting in the Life Boat" idea... Listening to Owl now. :)

Re: Get the duct tape (Broken Heart Syndrome reviews)

Thanks for the reviews. I hope cousin Katie the dental hygienist enjoys the song.
I had just come back from a dental cleaning, and the first verse took about 30 seconds to write.
The interpretation is totally up to you, of course.

Re: Song Fight! Live(Stream) - September 2020

I was hoping to get "Broken Heart Syndrome" in before last Saturday.
Didn't happen, but it's in now. So maybe this week.
Sync = annoying problem that I was not able to solve this time.

Re: Song Fight! Live(Stream) - September 2020

Really enjoyed the Niveous and Fluffy interviews... Partway through Spud. They're great.

I really want to do a set, and I really don't. [Whiny list of excuses].
Just wanted to echo Niv in thanking J$. He was a Nur Ein judge when I started recording again, and he really encouraged me.

Congrats Jon Eric! Fight well won, job well done! Your chorus and whistling part were stuck in my head all afternoon. Congrats Cavedwellers on a fight well fought. Thanks to all the judges. It's not a thankless job, because I just thanked you... but I didn't envy you. Thanks to Tommy for the Listeni...

Re: Song Fight! Live 2020 SF Bay Area Aug 28/29

Two months. Who knows? Maybe I can get some people together to LiveStream by then.
For Title by Title, what if you choose 3 or 4 titles now? That would give people time to re-learn or write something new.

Ben and Mike: Thanks for the kind words. I recorded the vocals with a Shure SM-58, rather than the inbuilt iPad mic.

Good job! Did you write your version to the Skyfall movie intro, or did you discover how well it fit after?

Re: Song Fight! Is 20 Years Old!!!

I found SongFight in March 2001, following random bunny trails. I was using Acid on a borrowed computer. I did a few songs, but met a girl in May. She was much more interesting than writing songs my friends didn't like. I tried other songs over the next few years, but didn't submit them. The compute...

Re: Nur Ein XV Round Five "North Beach Vampires"

It WAS in this thread - an inline attachment. Having said that, I did not listen to my final vocal takes until after I had submitted the file. And they sucked. I don't know that I can do any better today, but I plan to try. I have 15 minutes right now. Ok. Here it is. iveg-North-Beach-Vampires(2).mp3

I'm most of the way through "The New Ugly". I'm really enjoying it. You gelled pretty quickly - kinda Ben and Abigail versus Mike but in a fun way. I appreciate Abigail's perspective as a classically trained singer/ musician. I think my big takeaway is breath support. I've really enjoyed reading the...

Hey, judges. Until right now I had no idea I was eliminated and resurrected again for Chupacabra. Thank you for that. I wish I'd made a better showing. Thanks so much for your reviews and comments.

Re: Nur Ein XV Round Three "Rear Window"

My first impulse was to write about an insane proctologist and his unfortunate patients.

I've got my lyrics [posted], but no guest and nothing recorded. Usually, if it's not done by Friday afternoon, I'm out of luck. Fortunately, I'm already eliminated.
