Re: Ye olde songfight?

Is the idea that we all do a really old song of our own choosing?

Re: Nur Ein XV Round Six "Homestretch"

After a thousand years I have been cryogenically unfrozen to bring you my final set of liner notes: Thanks for doing all these, Adam!

Re: Nur Ein XV Round Six "Homestretch"

If you have any suggestions for how exactly to fix the guitars that sound underwater or pointy depending on which headphones you're on, I'll gladly take them. In retrospect, my first listen was probably on my laptop. The headphones I use to mix are yet a different data point - guitar's less pointy,...

Re: Nur Ein XV Final Round "Pistols At Dawn"

Instead of editing the last New Ugly episode, I decided to bring my D game.

I had fun trying stuff, but I clearly have a lot of criticism for my own song here. Also it's probably "not in this moment"ed even though it's about how people dueled 200 years ago.

Re: Nur Ein XV Final Round "Pistols At Dawn"

“Bring your A game” is a tough challenge, IMO, because it leaves no direction if you aren’t inspired by the title. RIP Nur Ein XI.

Thanks for the podcast! Although please never, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever try to do an Australian accent ever again please!
You should check out Manhattan Glutton's Byron Bay.

Edit: Wow this song hasn't aged well. Good thing that guy doesn't come around here anymore.

Late! The New Ugly is now The Old Ugly! Some priorities took precedence.
I humbly submit to you how dumb we sound.

Re: Studio acoustics: speaker mounting

I’m prob out of my element, but wouldn’t mass-loading the wall help? For example, mass-loaded vinyl. Can’t vibrate if it can’t move.

This is like a Usenet thread from 1996 See, Caravan Ray, nothing changes! It just takes 25 years to make it to Australia.

We don't blame a loss on the "quarterback" or the "pitcher". We play proper team games like cricket. That is your problem. You don't play cricket.

No - not really. Here - the ultimate authority is "the Crown" - personified by the Governor-General. It is a vague wishy-washy idea that has no real meaning. Yes, and our ultimate authority is the Constitution, which is a very tangible idea that has loads of meaning. Again, our troops and elected o...

So why do you need him? What job does he do? Why does your Constitution give power to one person - when that person could be an idiot? Giving power to one person is a very 18th century idea.

I feel I should also check out gravity kills, I have a feeling I might like them.
This is by far not one of their "top hits", but it's what your song reminds me of. They were my favorite in middle-school... I got into them because of the Mortal Kombat movie soundtrack.

We had an episode due this coming Tuesday that's going to be late because the raw recording was nearly two hours long, and I can't reasonably expect to cut a pass of it in that time, let alone chop off the amount that needs to be chopped off to make it listenable (we aim for 55-60 minutes per episo...
