Not a fan of the near rhyme of sure/floor, unless you pronounced it ‘flure’, but that would sound really weird to most of us.
I pronounced them shore and floor, which isn't a near-rhyme in whatever my accent is!
Oh thank god! That was really bugging me. : )

Re: Worse than nothing is not (Better Than Everything reviews)

So, I did something different with my reviews this time. I actually have not listened to a single song yet, but have written up reviews of just your lyrics. A few of my thoughts/reasons behind this approach: I wanted to see if your lyrics on their own sounded like what you recorded, without the musi...

Re: We're really in (Uncharted Waters prefight)

Regarding the optional challenge, "do something you've never done before", you don't say "musically". I'm planning on planting lettuce later this afternoon. I've never done that before. So technically I am fulfilling the option challenge. Should I work planting lettuce into my next entry? Asking for...

Re: Pick a cheek (Kissing Contest Reviews)

Is there a Dr Seuss version of this tutorial I can read? Maybe a picture book? I just can't wrap my mind around stuff like this.

So I won't.

For now.

Ahhh!

Re: Pick a cheek (Kissing Contest Reviews)

I know the trick of doubling electric guitars and panning them, but never think about it as so much of what I write is on acoustic, and that doesn't work there. Actually, it can work there, too. Two tracks panned hard left and right. But the timing can't be too far off. Another trick is the Haas ef...

Re: Pick a cheek (Kissing Contest Reviews)

You are most correct in all of what you mention, Lunkhead. I cannot find the buzz in my amp, and it's driving me insane! And of course I can't have it worked on at the moment. (Not sure why an amp repair shop isn't essential, but here we are.) I know the trick of doubling electric guitars and pannin...

Re: You're a winner (Kissing Contest prefight)

Well this has been, interesting. I apologize for the following; 1. the wicked buzz in my amp that I can't figure out, 2. the fact that I can't enunciate a "ch" sound whilst singing, and 3. my less than stellar mixing skillzzz.

Oh! And rather unnatural pairing of instruments.

Re: You're a winner (Kissing Contest prefight)

Well, I've had a song for this for a few days, but technology has not been my friend, so I'm just now laying all the parts down. Will barely have time to mix, but damn it all, I programmed my own drums instead of waiting for PFJ to do it for me, so come hell or high water, I'm going to fucking finis...

Re: Do you realize there are (Something's Wrong Reviews)

Evil Grin : I love the sound of this song--the arrangement, performances, mix are all just really lovely. I think it's maybe my favorite Evil Grin song to date. That first dropout to just smoky vox and piano with the build back up to drums + guitar is really effective, and I think in general it's j...

Re: Do you realize there are (Something's Wrong Reviews)

Also, thank you to WreckdoM for writing a song about the CATS movie, the arrangement is a little fatiguing to listen to tbh but the lyrics brought me great pleasure. I had no idea whatsoever what was tying all these hilariously weird phrases together! But then I've still not gotten around to seeing...

Re: Do you realize there are (Something's Wrong Reviews)

The first set of reviews of mine. The reviewer is my wife, who doesn't really want to listen to music right now. These reviews consist almost solely of the length of time it took her to ask to change the song to the next one. If you aren't mention, assume she didn't ask to change the song. At many ...

I have worked so many hours in the last two weeks that I could take next week off entirely. If only the work was all done... No music for me until February. Wah.

Re: I don't care about your (Checkered Past Reviews)

Hot Pink Halo: Love the chorus lyrics. Very interesting thought. I’ve always found the tradition of swearing on a book weird, like what’s the point? People are going to say whatever they want for the most part anyways. The round at the end is pretty cool. Maybe pan them hard left and right to separa...
