Re: Songfight Live 2022 IRL Interest Poll

I am sufficiently interested as to try to pull together my own Octothorpe cover band if this happens.

Spud voiced his concern that only SF shows should be on there, without any of the sidefights.
I am not opposed to sidefights, specifically organized through the Song Fight! Community, being on the channel. That extends to Nur Ein.

Spintunes is a bridge too far.

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

For those of you who don't know/remember (damn we are old), "These are the Jokes" is something Blue used to say a lot back in the days of the IRC channel. I vividly remember a bunch of times groups of us would just be in there shooting the shit and if someone took something too seriously, Blue woul...

Re: Goodbye Blue Lang

To me, this pushes the importance of a real-life face-to-face Songfight! LIVE to a new level. It could be any of us. I want to meet you, Paco, before one of us bites it!

Re: Goodbye Blue Lang

Grossly unfair. Blue was the best. Back in the day, when we were both traveling up and down the (West) coast a lot, we had a ritual. Whoever was visiting would have to bring a bottle of Scotch as a gift. And it had to be more expensive than the last Scotch gifted. I would be in the store looking for...

Re: The Endless Song Fight (Jukebox) Playlist

I have picked Frankie Big Face's "Crinkle Binkle". Our take was penned by Mad Dog, who was shall we say, less than subtle in his approach to political lyricism. It's basically just "BUSH STINKS" at full volume with a quiet song around it to get to turn your volume up before the punchline hits you. F...

Do you ever sing what you want to hear first and then figure it out on the instrument?

Re: Song Fight! Live(Stream) - September 2020

My humble suggestion: I think SF!L works and happens every year because we just need to convince one person a year to take it on. Whatever the format of a regular broadcast, it should be easy for any given volunteer to claim and execute an instance. Nevertheless, as did the early hosts of SF!L, som...

Re: Song Fight! Live(Stream) - September 2020

Or you could have a "Spud's Happy Hour" where Spud plays host to videos people send him. I think you get the idea. It needs show runners and themes. I have been wanting to get back in the game and looking for a way. I had fun doing the live show and making the voting widget. I have recently done a ...

Re: Song Fight! Is 20 Years Old!!!

We lived for the reviews. We took them seriously. We had a list on our whiteboard, with every single reviewer and what their beef was with us, and we vowed to get a good review (or at least a passable) one, from each and every one of them. One of Frankie's first reviews of us was "buy a three-prong ...

Re: Song Fight! Is 20 Years Old!!!

Stubs found out about SongFight by sliding sideways on the boards from one of the other sites hosted at dumbrella, and suggested that we enter. We were all working together without a lot to do and in a space with too many offices. We turned one of them into a studio and recorded "Been to China" (or ...
