I was considering In Between Days, but it's still just a consideration. I jam with Hoglen tonight, then I should know for sure what, if anything, I'm doing. :)

FWIW I'm buying my 30 acres this morning and will be rather busy, so I can't guarantee either that I will make a good recording OR that I will even find time to make that recording. Soooo, if anyone else wants to do LOVESONGS, go for it. If we double up on it, I think we can safely assume my version will be the lesser of the two. :P

I may try to do it Monday with Hoglen, but it will be done as if I (or we) wrote the song, more than likely. We prob cant spend much time it though cause we're working on other stuff too. If I end up doing it alone, I'll try to make it interesting at least. ;)

OK - my cover of Primary just sent.

I'm off to NZ now, to brave the snow and earthquakes and volcanos and orcs for a week.

This song is totally kicking my ass.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed for an on-time completion.

i'm done with all of the programming. that's one chunk of the time consuming stuff. i'm gonna try to nail vocals tomorrow, which will be another chunk. then i just have bass and guitar and that should be relatively quick. i like where it's headed, though. it's not outlandishly different, but it's definitely got its own voice.

If not, I might eventually get around to it.

It's my turn to be the nit-picky one:

So, do we have a time that the songs are due by on the 24th? Or is it just sometime on the 24th in whatever time zone you happen to live in? Given my rate of progress to date, I may need every minute I can get a hold of this week.

Oh, my work web filter is blocking curefight for some reason. No idea why, they don't tell me.
