SpinTunes 16 - Round 1 Challenge "What a Concept!"

Welcome to the 16th full edition of SpinTunes! We're going to kick this one off with a deceptively simple challenge: What a Concept!: Write a song based on a scene from a book or movie. Examples include: "Thunder Child" by Jeff Wayne (from "Jeff Wayne's Musical Version of War of the Worlds") and "Ca...

Re: Cooking

Oddly enough just the other night I got in a conversation about how the Lynch version of Dune is the only one worth consuming anymore because all of the others that exist (including the original books) are Extremely Problematic or at least Bad, and the Lynch version is at least surreal and nonsensi...

Hey check out the cover of this paper I saw in Milwaukee last night!
I hope you held onto your copy - it's already a collector's item!

Re: Listen Carefully... (The Password Is ______ Reviews)

Let’s make 2020 the year that no one uses the phrase “genre bias” in their reviews. Adnama17 - You’ve pulled off a neat trick here: telling a story with a distinct beginning and end, within a traditional cyclical (verse-chorus) song format. Your choruses have largely the same lyrics (“what the passw...

glad you managed to find some time to get something in for this one! Where did you move/where are you moving? Still nearby? We moved in November to Neenah, just south of Appleton. A little farther from Madison but still a doable drive for the right occasion. :) Although we will be a family of four ...

Re: Can you guess it? (The Password Is ______ prefight)

My life has been a little crazy with moving to a new city, my wife starting a new job, and expecting a new baby soon. I've watched a lot of titles come and go, but for this one I actually managed to write a simple little song and then invited a friend to play violin and recorded us in my living room...

Re: I think you've got my chair (Please Move Reviews)

Micah Sommersmith- I love it! This is probably my favorite Micah song. I am a sucker for 5/8. I would like to throw a criticism of me back at you. Remember Tearing History Down- the glenny song was in 7/8 and you didn’t like the same accents on the rhythm throughout the song. To me the same could b...

Re: Song Fight! Live 2019: Media

This was my (Micah Sommersmith) intended setlist, which as far as I can remember was the actual setlist as well (I didn't go back and watch my whole set but I don't remember changing it):

Whichever Whenever
Working On It
You Are a Guest
Cannibal Town
Let Them In
Glue
Incandescent

Re: hey listen to my new song (thread)

I have a new album! I had copies at Song Fight Live a couple weeks ago and now it's online too, for pay-what-you-want download:

https://micahsommer.bandcamp.com/album/you-like-me

It's got five Song Fight songs, four SpinTunes songs, and five songs I wrote all by myself.

Re: Meet me at (The Supper Club prefight)

I have submitted the recording of my song from the Live Fight, bar noise and screwups included.

Thanks to fluffy for an excellent quality recording, and for the incredibly quick turnaround in trimming them and sending them all out!

I want to practice mixing. Somebody send me tracks!
I have an entire album (14 songs) that I'm not super happy about the mix of. That may be a bigger project than you're interested in though! It's mostly accordion/acoustic guitar/bass/drums/vocals, with the occasional other thing.

Re: Meet me at (The Supper Club prefight)

Is it an issue to have identical filenames for entries in different fights? This one will be identical to Sacred Coward. Probably it's happened before and our very intelligent Fightmaster knows how to deal with it, but I just noticed that.

Re: Song Fight! Live 2019: Gear Info

Hey Micah, the two mentioned already were mine, not the Rigby's. Would you be able to bring 5-6 total just so all the ones there are yours and we don't have any mixups as far as whose stands are whose? I left my church before I saw this request and won't be back before Sunday, sorry! But my stands ...

Re: Song Fight! Live 2019: Gear Info

Just to confirm what was discussed in the main SF Live thread: I will be bringing four music stands from my church. If the Rigby already has two, I imagine that will be more than enough.

The music stands are of this general kind:

How many music stands will there be again? Sorry if that was spelled out already. I could pack one in my carry-on. We might want to have four total if possible.
I can bring some music stands. Good solid ones, not garbage wire stands. (No offense.)
