Re: sonofgearfight #1: "These are the Jokes"

Re: the comfort thing

As someone from a third English speaking country/continent, I think both ways of phrasing that are totally fine.

Re: Fuck Spotify even more

Etched in my memory forever is the exact moment that my brother had to explain exactly what "wanker" meant, then, subsequently what "masturbation" meant, to my very innocent mother after hearing the chants directed at Richard Hadlee at a cricket game in the 80s.

Re: Fuck Spotify even more

I’m sure Caravan Ray has done some interesting things in life, but I’m not sure we can credit him with the term “wanker”.

But, yeah, that Spotify dude is definitely a fucken wanker.

Re: Nur Ein XVI: Final Round "Blue"

Another 90s flashback inspired by this round. Seiko's perm. Of all the things to remember from childhood, I remember a news story about Seiko's perm, and how it schools in Japan had started to ban perms as a direct result of the craze started by this duet with Seiko and Donnie Wahlberg. I have no id...

Re: Nur Ein XVI: Final Round "Blue"

This is not really a review, but in a full circle moment, it appears the lip gloss brand of my youth in Australia, Red Earth, has been acquired by someone in Hong Kong and is now pretty much only sold in Asia and maybe Canada. Both of the finalists songs have now fused in my brain, as the brand (at ...

Blue , Hot Pink Halo The third in my Three Colours Blue Nur Ein Trilogy. The first was about Lapis Lazuli , the second was about Ultramarine , and this one is about Phthalocyanine Blue , one of the most useful and ubiquitous blue pigments ever developed. This song is also a bit about the star Siriu...

Re: Nur Ein XVI: Round Six "Devil In The Rain"

Side note: am I the only person in the world who actually enjoys composing to video?

Side side note: I feel like I stole at least part of my melody from somewhere. If someone could tell me where, I'd love to know.

Re: Nur Ein XVI: Round Five "The Only Way Out"

Wow, thanks judges! Weird how things turn out, I was feeling pretty down about this song by the time I submitted it because it didn't really end up exactly how I wanted it, and I wasn't happy with my vocals. I'd resigned myself to being a goner this round especially after last week when a song that...

I've been trying to write down time codes for cuts and fades in this video and work out what my plan is for this challenge, and just putting it out there that this might be the worst Nur Ein challenge ever. As far as I can make out there's around 20 cuts in this under 3 minute video. Some of them a...

Re: Nur Ein XVI: Round Five "The Only Way Out"

Hot pink halo: your voice isn’t quiet as strong and confident as it has been the last couple songs. I think the whistle/flute would have been better singled- doubled puts a magnifying glass to tuning issues. That’s one single alto recorder, in tune (checked with a tuner while I was playing and doub...

Back on labyrinths again; a fascination of mine. Specifically, unicursal labyrinths, which are the type that have a single path to the centre. The idea is that you walk in, face yourself (the minotaur), then walk back out again, changed. From wikipedia: In English, the term labyrinth is generally s...

Also I cannot sing Queen of the Night with ease.

Or at all.

But, if you want female low notes, that's my bag.
