Re: Finishing "No Memory" by Merisan

Excellent! I kind of forgot how catchy this song was, now it's going to be stuck in my head, damn it. It already really sounds great overall, but you asked for feedback, so here are my thoughts after A/Bing the two versions. Let me add that I know some of the things I'm complaining about below are 1...

Re: The Guitar Doctor Is In

Hey guitar doctor, would I benefit from getting a tube amp (or making other changes to my equipment), and if so, do you have any recommendations? Right now I have a Fender Mustang III (v. 2) and a Fender Squier Telecaster . I like that this amp is light, which is great for carrying around to shows a...

Maybe I should do that THIS year? After the final podcasts come out? The idea excites me, but seems too time intensive.

Re: Nur Ein XIV, Final Round: Survival

Vowl: The thrilling conclusion! I will admit, I have been anxiously awaiting these for several weeks now; I am fully on board the ouija-verse fandom. Did that sway my vote? Maybe, but I was out voted anyway. I love the build you guys have going, especially how it ebbs and flows a bit, getting a lit...

Great stuff this year. Congrats to Vowl Sounds!!! PS- if y'all are wondering what happened to Brookes and I doing reviewing, there is a reason. No, it's not because we got married. That just coincidentally happened during the competition. The reason is because we are planning to do a review podcast...

How did it start out, what types of changes got made along the way, how did it end up, how did the songwriter feel about it? Are these all singer/songwriters or are they w...

The Vegan Wigs were actually our main political party in the 18th Century, if I'm remembering correctly.

Re: Nur Ein XIV Round Six "You Too"

OK but this only raises more questions. Are there extra-expensive versions made of human hair? Vegan versions that are synthetic? Are there regulations about what kinds of wigs you're allowed to wear, and from which animals? How do they get the hair from the horses, is it pulled out or cut, from th...
