Re: But in all seriousness... (Zero Gravity reviews)

Micah - Rachel Maddow (MSNBC) had been talking about creating a fake secessionist movement to see if the Russian trolls jumped on it. They came up with a bunch of names (like "New Mexit") and were having online voting. Not sure if they even followed through on it, I've had too much politic...

Re: Goodbye 2016 (Auld Lang Syne pre prefight)

Got an idea for this one last night, so if I can get the recording done by Saturday (or before the songs are posted, thank you fudge factor), I'll be in. If the songs get posted within a few days of the deadline, I'll even be briefly "current" :-)

Re: It's a quantity of time (Forty Three hours prefight)

For the record, there have been a couple fights where the cover was a .gif file - Cloud Cuckoo Land being one. Don't know if that involved a lot of special coding or not, but I'm pretty sure it's not the only one. In fact the first 20 or so fights are mostly .gif files, though they don't appear to b...

Toby, have you sent a PM to Lunkhead about this? As it says in the Nigerian Prince email, "If your band name is wrong, or something else awkward ensues from your submission, simply assume that it's your fault then let us know. We are generous. We will most likely correct the problem. Unless you...

Thanks to all who did reviews this week, I fear I'm coming up short again... Did want to mention that there is a little "backstory" to my song this week... this guy is dating a girl named Kara Danvers, but he hasn't figured out that she's actually Supergirl. So there's just this weird stuf...

Race to the Bottom

Race to the Bottom / King Arthur (as performed by the King Arthur Trio) A light bulb came on / over his head He ran to the lab / and as he went he said "When I emerge / at some future date I'll have a thing / and that thing will be great." And just when his money / was almost gone He flipp...

Re: We all lose in the (Race to the Bottom prefight)

PJ - well, the subsequent line that the song is about CFL bulbs is my way of saying "just kidding, this is actually a brand new song, done in the style of the Kingston Trio." I guess I gotta stop trying to be deep and clever, it's probably not helping me...

Re: We all lose in the (Race to the Bottom prefight)

So, hey, I found an old reel-to-reel tape of the King Arthur Trio doing a song called "Race to the Bottom" at the 1965 Fresno Folk Festival that I think I can recover. Oddly enough, the song is about the invention and marketing of CFL light bulbs, which didn't happen for another 30 years o...

Re: Just cause I want to drink young blood you think I'm (Super Creepy prefight)

Nine minutes to deadline and I'm giving the mp3 a listen just to make sure it's all there. I worked a lot on the lyric - there's, like a backstory which listeners may or may not get, it's supposed to work either way. The music is kinda old fashioned. I expect to come in way behind Gert, if only beca...

Re: Just cause I want to drink young blood you think I'm (Super Creepy prefight)

Think I know where to go with this one, got a lyric and a whole week to make it work with some music... This will be a song with a backstory, and if you figure out what the backstory is, everything will make sense, and even if you don't, it'll be a nice, ya know, KA song. And it might even make a su...
