I may not have this done by Dec 31. I know my tune pretty well at this point but family obligations are reducing available recording time!

I reckon we’ll be a bit late too - my December has been quite intense and I’m back to work tomorrow, and Toshiro has been ill. And frankly, I can’t make this song sound awesome without him.

I started but somehow managed to record my first instrument track out of tune and it killed my momentum, and then I decided it was finally time to update to Windows 10 because plugin updates were starting to drop compatibility for good ol' Win 7. That's all done now though so I should be able to get back into the groove... theoretically...

Did somebody say extension?

It's that magical time of year where we see that most people aren't ready to get their song in and we extend the deadline by two weeks. 1/14/21.

Haha. Mine is done, but I was considering an ambitious bonus thing so maybe I'll attempt that in the bonus time. Maybe.

Yeah, if tonight's the deadline I could submit an instrumental version that I'm plenty happy with but no vocals. Something something holidays, just had a kid, blah blah excuses.

I think rackwagon might be done - subject to consensus.

This song haunted me and worried me and I found some sections very difficult to resolve. I’m not entirely happy but I’m sure as shit glad I had Toshiro on board because otherwise it would be just a mess
