Song Fight! Live 2018 Location

No harm in getting this conversation started a early this year, I figure. Any volunteers?

Re: Song Fight! Live 2017 Foodies & Hoodies

Hey all. Huge thanks again to all who performed, attended, and helped run Song FIght Live 2017 in Berkeley! It was a big success in many ways. One of the ways was we made $763 from the shows! We gave $50 of that to the sound person when the show was done as a token of our gratitude for her dealing w...

Songs posted. We've got more songs than in the last several fights. Did y'all like the title or was it something else...? Just timing?

Re: My Life

That is an awesome story. I was expecting it to end with your guitar in flames, or otherwise damaged by proximity to a fire. The cat puke was an unexpected twist. A+

Re: Top Scientists: Pop Music is Getting Worse

Of course, the real issue with all these "scientific" studies "proving" that music is awful now is that they ignore any kind of social/economic analysis and treat "music" as a huge monolithic entity. For instance, it's easy to record and disseminate music on your own n...

Re: Top Scientists: Pop Music is Getting Worse

2. Simpler and louder I see this Spanish study get cited a lot in online arguments about the decline of pop music and I still don't like it. Their thesis is basically that newer music has less variation in pitch and timbre, and is louder than music of the past (they go back to 1955). Here's the pap...

Re: Top Scientists: Pop Music is Getting Worse

That is really sad. My "old man" opinion is that MTV put pop music on a bad path to cementing image over music. Digital production techniques made it all too easy to pour autotune and brickwall limiting etc. all over everything. (Similar to how so many movies get digitally color graded to ...

Kong: Skull Island

I watched this for free on a plane. It was so dumb, oh man. The Kong CGI bits though were kind of awesome. Also it did manage to capture a bit of the kind of fun of old 80s action movies like Predator, in that you don't know who's going to get killed at any moment.

Table 19

I watched this for free on a plane, expecting it to be a super dumb comedy with terrible jokes. It actually turned out to be a pretty decent comedy with a lot of good characterization and acting.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi

Very fun and entertaining, in spite of a lot of superfluous and hokey stuff. I guess that's pretty much any good Star Wars movie.

Most anticipated albums of 2018?

Does anybody still listen to albums anymore? Anyway, maybe some of you know of some artists who've got new albums set for release this year. I know Jenny Lewis has been recording for a while now, I'm hoping her new album comes out this year.

Every January is "Fun-A-Day", a global event for which people resolve to make art every day in January. Jonathan Mann got started doing his "Song-A-Day" project for Fun-A-Day in 2009 and he's still going! I started trying to just make any kind of music every day for Fun-A-Day two...

Re: New Year's Resolutions?

So here we are, 2014. How did everybody do last year? I don't have resolutions from last year to review, so I guess I'll just make some for this year. 1. Do some money related stuff I should be doing but am not 2. Do some health related stuff I should be doing but am not 3. Trade in my 15 year old ...

Re: Don't Have a Cow, Pig, Goat or... (Our Forfeited Friends Reviews)

Songs posted. Unfortunately the Macaque Attack song was nowhere to be found in the fightmaster inbox for some reason. I DM'd about it and will add it to the fight as soon as I get it.

Re: We gave them up (Our Forfeited Friends prefight)

I have been away visiting family. I brought my work laptop in case I needed to deal with any work emergencies. I thought I had what I needed on this laptop to be able to update Song Fight but it has turned out that I do not. I've made a couple short attempts at it and this morning I had time to spen...

Re: I Fall Into the Songfight Gap

Just write an "Our Forfeited Friends" entry and submit it late. I probably won't have time to update the site for a day or two still at this point.
