Re: Covering random songs from the archive

So on 11pm PST on 9/10 (i.e. 2am EST on 9/11) Paco got assigned a 'random song' about 9/11?

Is that a legit wild coincidence, or was your thumb on the scale for this one?

Re: Songfighter Videos on YouTube

Thank you, very happy that you enjoyed it. It was for a project involving the creation of something original (the song, in this case) to accompany something in the public domain (a clip from "Plan 9 from Outer Space", in this case). The initial thought was to use a different film clip to make a "Bad...

Was this ever determined? Jerkatorium is more or less on track to have our submission ready today, do we email the mp3 somewhere or post a link to SoundCloud or what?

Re: RockOperathon?

Jerkatorium would probably be very interested in this if, as fluffy suggested, a reasonable deadline were imposed - unfortunately Chumpy and I are both employed, so we'd need a few free weekends to complete any adequate number of songs. I would also vote for a widely interpretable title/subject to w...

You're not wrong. I'd like to think that I would react differently if I were in Ghosts of Pasha, but if I'm being completely honest with myself then I'm not certain that I would.

Re: Mind Games: what do you think?

I think you are approaching this as if they were a cover band only happy to see whoever appeared that night. That's not the case. No, I get that, but they're a new band and I'm assuming they would be happy to have people in the audience listening to the music. It wasn't a closed rehearsal, it was a...

Re: Mind Games: what do you think?

The disappointment voiced by the band is the most anti-Zen reaction imaginable. The band's genuine enjoyment was not merely lessened but somehow poisoned in retrospect due to the crowd's (at least partial) insincerity? The experience was fun for everyone involved and the intent was not malicious, so...

Re: Beware of sexual cannibalism (Praying Mantis prefight)

Back in the early 90s Zoom DJ'ed the wedding reception for a friend, and the first song he played was Don Dixon's "Praying Mantis". He meant well, it was all done in good fun, but it was still (arguably) a little tacky. On the other hand, it was memorable (I guess it's the only thing I remember abou...

Re: Handing someone an album in 2016

My goal with this is to make the process of listening to the music as hassle-free as possible. I like the idea of a USB stick because it's so easy (you don't need to type in a URL or rip a CD in order to get the mp3s), but one of my friends mentioned he'd never accept a USB from anyone for fear of g...

Re: Handing someone an album in 2016

anybody know where to get cheap USB sticks? AliExpress has them for about $2 at the lowest price for the highest volume. It would be a great solution, but that price point is just not feasible for most DIY music. The best deal I've found so far is $6.73 (free shipping) for a 5-pack of 64MB flash dr...
