Re: Song Fight! Live #20 in 2020 for Song Fight! 20th anniversary SF

Are we suddenly going to call Berkeley "San Francisco?" There was some ire over that last time someone did that. Where was the thing 20 years ago? SF or Berkely? Is there really a difference? Like Ipswich isn’t really Brisbane and Penrith isn’t Sydney - but, for all intents and intensive purposes -...

Re: SpinTunes 16 Round 1 ‘What a Concept’

OK I did this. I have only ever read one book. Its called "The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn". Its a powerful good book. My song is obviously about that.

Re: Come join in (The Dregs Reviews)

Damn....missed it by "that" much!! Was hoping to get in this week after a long absence. Just finished a song - Sam must have just got songs up before I posted. Nevermind - I actually wrote the song for the current Spintunes "song based on literature" challenge thing - and thought I could do a double...

I encourage avoiding August. I'm happy to see you posting here again. But ... vague cryptic statements like that are not really super duper helpful. Could you maybe provide some details behind why you would say that? Is it due to conflicts with your own plans that month? Or do you know something ab...

Re: Cooking

And Crumpart ( you have me fired up now) - I am puzzled by your claim “it’s an Australian accent- it’s not my accent”!?!? WTF does that mean!?!? There are not different Australian accents. Over the whole continent our accent is the most consistent of anywhere. There are very minor differences if you...

Re: Cooking

Thank you for recognising that a Paul Hogan accent is different from an Australian accent. Huh!?! How is Paul Hogans accent different from an Australian accent? We might not still wear skin tight stubbies - but there is nothing wrong with his accent!?!? There’s nothing wrong with it, per se. Its *a...

Ha. Technical death metal! More like Jangle-pop. Well, good news is I like that genre way better! Thank goodness! The band is 'The Steinbecks', if you're interested. I was playing along between 2002-2007 roughly. Hmmm..I don't recall you guys unfortunately. Did you play in Sydney? 2002-2005 I was a...

I'm waiting for my brother to figure out when he's traveling, since I generally rely on him for lodging and also would like him to actually make it to one of these heckin' shows again. (Last time he managed to make it was back in 2005! Since he lived in Boston at the time.) We’re not going to repea...

OK, so, dates. Let's get the process started of trying to figure out some dates. I'm ready to start contacting the Berkeley venue from a few years ago to see if they have availability. What works for folks? It looks like we've most commonly had it in August, which also I personally prefer, but it's...

Is on our list to watch with the kids this month. Glad to hear you enjoyed it.

Taika Waititi is a gorgeous and delightful genius. If you haven't already, be sure to go find 'What We Do In The Shadows', and
'Hunt For The Wilderpeople'.
Yes. TW is great

So how did this come about? The USA and the UK have the stupidest governments ever. And the best we can come up with is fucking Scotty from Marketing.!?!?!? Jesus fucking Christ. A slimy little cunt with a face that says “punch me”.
