Re: Try Me

Re: Go ahead (Try Me prefight)

ASMR has been a huge trendy thing, and it's possible that you just never noticed it and now that it's been pointed out to you you're noticing it everywhere. It's a similar effect to how after someone buys a car they suddenly notice all the other people with the same car. It's a trendy thing but I j...

Re: Turn left by the three legged dog (Right Town, Wrong Address Reviews)

By the way, have you considered making any friends in the local police? If law and order in Atlanta functions on nepotism alone it might do you a favour. Either that or spraypaint your neighbours house pink and wait for someone to burn it down. Too far? Ah, if only it were Atlanta and if only I was...

Re: Turn left by the three legged dog (Right Town, Wrong Address Reviews)

Balance Lost : After last fight's more straightforward rock song was such a critical and popular failure (I assume, not checked the results). Ha! He won. Phlebia : It kinda runs out of steam before the end for me - if I could keep following the words then I probably wouldn't mind, but as it is I ki...

Re: Turn left by the three legged dog (Right Town, Wrong Address Reviews)

An album's worth of good stuff here. Well done everyone. Phlebia: In spite of the filthy distortion elbowing it's way into this mix this is definitely the poppiest thing you've done for a while. I've just criticised Shoehorn for using too many rhyming couplets, and while this track is replete with ...

I'm not entirely sure if anything I'm doing for this fight is going to trigger an AMSR response but I've got some sketches recorded...I am not a good violinist.

Re: Turn left by the three legged dog (Right Town, Wrong Address Reviews)

A nice quiet morning here in Phlebia-land...so here we go! Balance Lost: Lyrically I like theme you went for with this one, and the execution is generally pretty solid (though I must say, I like the musically backing of your previous entry a little bit more). That drum fill that ends with the dinky ...

And I wish it had been a 6-way tie.
Well given that a 6-way tie would have been my first ever win, I'd probably have enjoyed that! Plus it'd be funny seeing that pop up on the "5 years ago!" section every now and again.

Re: Turn left by the three legged dog (Right Town, Wrong Address Reviews)

So many of these are awesome! I'll try to get reviews written sooner rather than later, but I'm probably going to have to set an arbitrary number of votes for myself to give out or else more than 2/3 are getting them.

Congrats on the double win! Both of you were quite good. And geez, a 4 way tie for second. I guess this fight was just filled with good songs!

Last night I dreamed that the optional challenge for the next fight was ‘an actual bee sting’ and all the songs had some top-shelf screaming and swearing.

Re: Remember that one time? (I Used To Know You Better Reviews)

heh, Vom and I submitted essentially a slowcore+noise song in Round 2 of Nur Ein this year as part of the "dynamics" challenge and it did not go over well at ALL, it got called "the biggest disappointment of the round" by one of the judges and possibly also a "snoozefest" but I might be mixing it u...

They leave packages by my garage exposed to sun and rain when they could walk slightly further and at least put them only porch. In their defense, FedEx and USPS do the same thing. USPS is probably the least likely to do it though...

Owl: thanks for the kind words! I agree that yeah it was probably a bit of a bold move to submit a slowcore turned noise breakout entry but it was definitely received better than I anticipated. Unrelated, soulflow and I *may* be getting something together again...travel problems caused us to skip ou...

Re: I was in the (Right Town, Wrong Address prefight)

No food was involved. I thought about using celery drumsticks, but I didn't. I may have gotten some cracker seasoning on my bass strings though. Anyway, Phlebia has submitted!

In fact, I don't even own an electric guitar! -- I pawned my Ibanez years ago to help with moving expenses. That's Ryan of Jerkatorium fame, who sent me a guitar track af...
