Negatory. As a robot it possesses no need to defecate. Marvel upon this fact, puny humans, and despair.

Re: Ready the polygraph! (Keep All Your Promises reviews)

I'm sure these comments would be constructive criticism but it's so varying from so many different perspectives I'm torn about what direction to take my music in. There doesn't seem to be any consensus on my style, because I'm trying to change it to please people. To be honest I'm exhausted. I agre...

Re: December 8, 2009 - Remembering John

It's interesting that with so many things the songwriter asks us to imagine being without - the religious aspect is the only one that gets folks discussing it. This is a really good point. I'm not going to give away everything I own tomorrow, but I still think it's an awesome song, even though it a...

Re: A Musical Consipiracy Theory: Pre-Flight

Of course, you don't have to write a song espousing the viewpoint that 9/11 was an inside job. You could write a song expressing why you disagree with that view. Or a sarcastic song that mocks that view. Someone in the chat room suggested writing about an event that happened on a different historica...

Re: What's it all About, Alphie?

^ Everything Furrypedro said +1000 Also, I think a goal for a musician should be that they can go and perform live... and not get boo'ed off the stage because they can't sing in pitch and they cant play their instrument. Fine if that's what your goal is, but don't impose that on the rest of us. I, f...

Re: Songfighter Videos on YouTube

Hey, remember when I said in a couple reviews that something about your songs make me feel like I'm hanging out in your living room late at night listening to you play a song you just wrote (and I mean that in a really, really good way)? Well it was really cool to actually see what that would look l...

Re: A bit late, but who isn't...

I'd only list a small fraction of what I listen to as major influences. Perhaps influences you are consciously aware of directly influencing you. Well sure, but anything we're not consciously aware of isn't exactly going to make it onto a list you make of your influences. But in general, I would sa...

Re: A bit late, but who isn't...

Yes, I agree that what you like and listen to and your influences can be two different things... I'd only list a small fraction of what I listen to as major influences. But your influences, by definition, are bands and artists that have had an influence on how your music sounds. That doesn't necessa...

Re: A bit late, but who isn't...

With a list of influences like that, I'm eager to hear what you come up with. When I first arrived I was clueless about mastering too, but practice, and advice from my fellow songfighters, has definitely helped me improve. There are lots of talented/experienced people around here who are more than w...

Re: hey listen to my new song (thread)

I think you've really outdone yourself this time, deetak. All the layered vocals sound better than ever, great sounding guitar, interesting chords, that subtle keyboard flute coming in. Two nitpicks. The end cuts off too abruptly, before the last chords finishes ringing out. And, I wish you could tr...

Thanks for the review, Authors. I used a banjitar, a banjo with a six string guitar neck.
