Re: My Life

That's weird. I always assumed the short i was British. I never heard it myself until I was listening to the audiobook of Neal Stephenson's "Diamond Age" and I seem to recall that part being read by a British woman, but I could be wrong because it was years ago. Growing up it was always pr...

Re: Favorite Album of 2017?

Ooh, I have one, I really liked Marsheaux - Athlon. That came out in 2017. Wikipedia says they're Greek synthpop with female vocals.

I still listen to mostly albums. My problem is, I have no idea what year they came out. I need some automated way to figure that out.

Re: I recorded a synthpop album in a month!

Nah, that's been done before, although on a random occasion somebody else has covered the pre-released song and submitted it too.
Totally can't remember what fight that was, though.

Re: Take A Deep Breath And Smell Those (Foxglove reviews)

Vom Vorton - ... I’m bothered by the pun at the end - not because of any aversion to puns (see my “Dad Joke” entry, or engage me in conversation for more than five minutes), but because it seems to come out of nowhere and is not set up by anything earlier in the song, as far as I can tell. I feel p...

Re: Take A Deep Breath And Smell Those (Foxglove reviews)

Macaque - nice sound. Reminds me of a band i can’t place right now [edit: vom said it, nick cave is who i was thinking of]. Interesting story. I’d like to hear the instrumentation change a little more. The solo at the end helps a bit. Unsharp - ouch. Is this song completely the pun? I think this mig...

Re: NaNoWriMo

I tried it the last two ... no, three years, but never finished anything close to 50k. I did get a nice novella out of the first year but failed miserably the next two.
This year I just didn't even get started. I find FAWM to be more doable.

Brother Machine was great. He entered fights multiple times, but all the entries were good. Seth was another of his names.

Re: It Ain't Plato's (The People's Republic Reviews)

The People’s Republic Bss - lyrically, it doesn’t have much subtlety. Can’t disagree with the sentiments, though. Not the most accomplished vocal… and the banjo (?) seems mixed oddly and is distracting. Hinc - this is me. It’s nice to be back in a fight, it seems like i have less and less time these...

Re: Circle of Titles VII

Well, it wasn't the song I had meant to record, but what I learned is that I'm not that good at writing lyrics with meter and rhyme and stuff, so I mostly talked through this one. I had big plans for this one that didn't come to fruition. Not sure how many songs there are out there about cryptograph...
