Re: Nur Ein XIV Round Six "You Too"

hey folks! thanks for the kind words again, it's been a real pleasure writing songs; just some parting thoughts! when writing this week's entry, i felt very much that the simpler song was just a more honest thing to do, and people have noticed the production/arrangement/songwriting being, less compl...

Re: Nur Ein XIV Round Three "Color Me _____"

Re: Nur Ein XIV Round Four "No Memory"

if i'm reading back on the nur ein website right, weren't all the songs ranked in previous competitions regardless of immunity? and then it only impacted the knockouts? i could definitely be wrong

Re: Nur Ein XIV Round Three "Color Me _____"

frankie! thanks for the kind words! the sample is indeed the "i missed out" part, it's from a song called old kid (that you can find here - https://rainrain.bandcamp.com/track/old-kid-3), so it is like, a part 2 song? it was the only way i could imagine tackling this challenge really, it felt so nat...

Re: Nur Ein XIV Round Four "No Memory"

i have been feeling weirdly prophetic about all of these challenges, yknow, writing a diss track before the diss track challenge, sampling a previous entry before the sample challenge, and last round's entry had this little chiptune synth line... very curious, niv, very curious

Re: Nur Ein XIV Round One "Shock Value"

I originally had "door-a" but figured my lyrics were weird enough! aha! knew it! My first guess is that it's not about Milo Yiannopoulos but maybe someone like him? my specific muse was chad felix greene, who's not quite the yiannopoulos type, but a way more mundane kind of nuisance. honestly, it's...
