Re: Nur Ein XV Round Two "Chupacabra"

<r>I wrote and recorded a shadow today--I can tell you right now the production sucks, I ran out of time, d'oh! Maybe I should have started before 3 PM the day the songs were due. 1 track electric guitar, 1 track bass, 2 vocal tracks. <br/> <br/> Apparently the appearance of the chupacabra was heavi...

If you want to make your guitar sound like a bass then go for it, but don't be surprised if some / all of the judges object to it when putting their rankings together.
Is that as a challenge violation?
or for playing lawyer ball?
or because it might not sound good?
Yes.

I probably won't listen to your second version shadow till after judging, so I don't have a problem with it.

Re: Nur Ein XV Round One "The Handbook"

Jon Eric - This is an extremely Mountain Goats song in so many ways. It reminds me a lot of “Up the Wolves,” maybe a bit of “Magpie” in the phrasing. And, well, I like the Mountain Goats, but this isn’t everyone’s cup of tea. Why, whatever do you mean? Is that a band? What a silly name for a band! ...

Vox & Laney are my favorite sounding amps... and it'll be nice to have a "real" "tube" Vox amp (that fits in my backpack). Also to Lunkhead & irwin: I have an SG and I don't really like i...

@crumpart Looking forward to hearing that chromatic harmonica on some new songs!
I played the Sesame Street theme song today. It was highly satisfying.

. If you’d written this about something other than bitter, passive-aggressive office politics, it probably would have scored higher for me. Thanks for writing reviews twice! this round.

I ordered the Vox MV50 + cab deal after Lunkhead posted about it and I'm really looking forward to it arriving on Friday! It'll be nice to spend some time with my electric guitar again.

OK, sorry, but now everyone gets one brief, half-assed, extra-crabby paragraph because as I mentioned, my reviews file got corrupted and I lost hours of work on this round’s reviews :( At least it wasn’t last round, though, I would have cried. 25 songs seems so manageable now… Common themes: be nice...

I pulled the trigger on this deal ... and also on the upsell "only $10" Sweetwater t-shirt which I absolutely do NOT need haha.
I just bought this as well. Not the t-shirt, though, I’m on a budget.

I made the ricotta gnocchi last night and it was delicious, and easy to make as well! I served it with roasted Brussels sprouts, brown butter, and chili flakes, and pan-fried the gnocchi a bit after boiling so it got a little brown and crisp. 9BF5ECD4-F0B1-424E-B029-288EE9539775.jpeg I made these It...

Re: Nur Ein XV Round Zero "This is Fine"

A couple people in their (very thoughtful and appreciated) reviews have pointed out my emphasis of "rag-time". I thought it made the line more double-entendre-ish (rag time not ragtime, because the line is already surreal). That said, it's not the first time my emphAsis has been an unexpected criti...
