Re: Nur Ein XII Round Five

Skub - Beatboxing, awesome. Don’t really get a ton of this in these online contests. WOAH. You waited over a minute before using any instruments & you were already well on your way to a good review from me. Then you laid it down. Man you did a good job of setting the bar high just so you could ...

you'd totally have to do it. not being a musician is no excuse.

Well I could do it if someone did the music...and the singing...I could write lyrics. (bad ones, but I could try)

I support the judging of judges...it's only fair.

Re: Nur Ein XII Round Five

somebody proposed a challenge where they wanted to specify the genre of music you'd have to create. if you think this is bad, you should be glad i vetoed that one :) -bill Personally I don't mind genra challenges from time to time.

Re: Nur Ein XII - Round Four

Wasn't that I didn't "get" it, I had trouble following along cause the vocals were muddled a bit. Also mix in a line or 2 like, "Your guitar, I have to listen, I got no choice" that just flows awkwardly & it causes me to lose were I'm at breifly because I'm double checking to...

Re: Nur Ein XII - Round Four

Micah Sommersmith - Love the idea, and it’s something that I probably would be overly annoyed with if a girlfriend constantly sang the wrong words to songs I knew. Great job with all the examples. Musically I wasn’t blown away by anything, but lyrically it kept me entertained. Berkeley Social Scene...

Nick Soma - Now I know it didn’t say the guest vocalist could be audio clips from other media, so I guess I can let that slide. That’s straddlin’ the fence in terms of meeting the challenge though. What bothers me most is that this song screams out for multiple vocalist & you don’t have them. Y...

Re: Nur Ein XII - Round Two

I’m pretty sure we just gave a perfect challenge for Dub Step remixes.... Strangelove - This is exactly what I was hoping to see people do. You crafted a sentence that could be broken down to use bits & pieces of. The dance track is a good choice with the lyrical limitations. I probably would ha...

Jerkatorium - This was just beautiful. This song came in around 4 minutes, and you left me wanting more. At the start the music was sad & hopeful at the same time & your vocals perfect. You could feel when the chorus was coming & at that point I was thinking to myself, “Don’t fuck this u...

Re: Nur Ein XII - Round Zero

There's a balance to writing something the judges might like, and writing only for yourself. This *IS* a judged competition after all, and these 5 are the ones who determine whether we move on or not. If we didn't care about the judges, we wouldn't be here. Depends on the person. I've found a lot o...

A lot of you know how I judge because I've reviewed here in the past & of course I've judged SpinTunes a lot. For those new to my reviews I'll tell you a little about how I do things. I'm not a musician of any kind. So when it comes to technical stuff I'm pretty useless. I can just tell you what...

Re: Christmas Songs

Dang, my MP3 player just got a little fuller. Rudolph the Venison Sausage, Fuck You, Mother Fucker, It's Christmas & Merry Christmas were great. Oh and Erin singing Baby It's Cold Outside...hot. Thanks for the suggestions I'll gladly listen to any more people want to suggest. Here's one of my fa...

Christmas Songs

Out of all the songs submitted here over the years I'm curious if there are any holiday ones that hold a special place in your heart. I'm filling my MP3 player with Christmas music & thought I'd look for suggestions here.
