Re: Do really want (To Die On This Hill prefight)

In with installment #3 of the Friendly Town saga. Might do a short story or comic on this person's adventure - though it won't be as good as the Rambo series. I've greatly been enjoying this series of challenges. I kind of went all-out on this one after the reserved stuff I was doing for Nur Ein and...

Re: Was it enough? (We Did Everything We Could prefight)

Brown Word in with chapter two in this saga, wherever it is leading. Certainly something is wrong with the mix, there always is, but here I come anyway. Some day I'll learn!

Nur Ein XVI - Blue

Blue - Brown Word and the Big Whine Well I'm not sure I've met the challenge to bring my A-game on this - songs like this while simple are very hard for me to pull off well but it just wasn't physically, musically, or emotionally possible this time. The subject of loss has personally struck home wit...

Re: Nur Ein XVI: Final Round "Blue"

Well I didn't make it to the finals but I had a really great time and am extending that good time by working on a shadow entry for "Blue". Thank you Niveous for putting this together once again. Thank you judges for giving BWatBW a shake at the ol' Nur Ein. And thank you fellow contenders for provid...

Re: Was it enough? (We Did Everything We Could prefight)

I ordered an alto saxophone yesterday. It's an instrument I've been wanting for a long time, though I'm more of a clarinet guy (I tried tenor sax and it was a nightmare for me, that thing is just so big and heavy!) I'll see if I can get anything decent out of the alto sax and perhaps use it for thi...

Re: Nur Ein XVI - Devil In The Rain

Devil In The Rain - Brown Word and the Big Whine Well this was a fun one and I also tried to take care that the song makes some sense without the accompanying clip. My first task was to line up those hammer hits. I wanted to do that the minute I saw them and I believe I had succeeded: if you put the...

Re: Here comes the inevitable (Abuse Of Power prefight)

Brown Word got in earlier with an effort I considered rather awful but King Colon assures me it reminds him of 90's bands that us older people like. WreckdoM is also in under the wire. Looking forward to Night Sky's horns! Also generally looking forward to the stories that everyone is creating. I li...

Re: Nur Ein XVI: Round Five "The Only Way Out"

Brown Word and the Big Whine - Cool guitars. I like the energy. I feel the vocal doesn't sit in the mix quite "right." It sounds either thin or a bit masked to me. But I liked the song. Challengewise: I'm guessing your modulation was intended to be in the solo at 2:38 and in the vocal at 3:19. Both...

Re: Nur Ein XVI - The Only Way Out

The Only Way Out - Brown Word and the Big Whine This title lent itself immediately to a certain type of song with a certain type of story for me. These lyrics are based around one of the great Icelandic family sagas, The Saga of Burnt Njal. However I added a twist - in this song the intended victims...

Re: Nur Ein XVI - Waiting for the Sun to Fall

I did my lyrics in a rondel variant, based off Chaucer's "Rondel of Merciless Beauty". Hopefully that isn't going to ding me as I felt that structuring the last quintet this way (as ol' Geoffrey himself did) allowed me to revisit the "waiting for the sun to fall" line and bolster the concept of the...

Re: Bark at the (Full Moon On Friday reviews)

Brown Word and the Big Whine -- This is a different sound from you, at least from the fights I’ve been in. I like how you sort of take the idea of a werewolf transformation but apply it to the transformation of going out to dance, and getting into a more visceral and animal kind of mode, getting sw...

Re: Nur Ein XVI: Round Four "Waiting For The Sun To Fall"

So here we could use 26 if that extra word makes the song better? I think the thing most nerve-wracking (by design?) is attempting to satisfy challenges that are vaguely laid out, since then it feel like rather than having a defined challenge set out, they're going to wait and see if they like the s...
