So one idea I had was to submit a single "live" track each week, which would be more like a radio show rotation (or the original MTV!) but I'm not sure how well that idea would go over. It would be much easier to try to record 4 good take single tracks than a set of all good takes.
This is totally fine! I'm doing some weird experiments with shorter videos, too. If you have one for tonight's show, we'd be happy to take a look and add it in where we can. Just put it in the Dropbox: https://www.dropbox.com/request/iDkU21wnNZY0Zu6MDFqS.

Hey all, we're going to start the stream around 7:30ET/4:30PT with some fighter interviews. The sets will begin at 9:00ET/6:00PT. For now, expect Add, Charm Offensive, Heine's medley, and Glenn Case. We can easily add late-breaking entries too.

Aight, a 3 track acoustic set is currently uploading on the Dropbox...wee. I went with "Good Trouble", "Please Move", and "Something's Wrong". I recognize 2/3 of those are my darkwavey goth tracks but when you're stuck with a drum machine, it works.

Edit: man, I flubbed the beginning of the first track. Don't give up on me lol.

Awesome work Jefff and Leah, and everyone else who helped make this happen. The sets were all great, and the post-show zoom call was awesome, even if I was a passive participant. Y'all set the bar very high!

Yeah! I just did a medley: all of my entries from the past 12 years I participated. Had to get all the ditties back in mind.
21 songs condensed to 7 minutes. Chronologically, of course. It was good fun. :D

The Video ist just uploading.
BTW -- This is definitely in for tomorrow. I know it's gonna be a bad time for you, but it'll play sometime between 9 and 10 eastern US time.
Yeah, bad time for me, sorry! I was already sleeping... But I just watched it this morning. You were all great, it was good fun. Very likeable hosts.
I was deeply impressed by Glenn and his friends. (Did anyone else recognize Glenn's ever changing' beards?) :D
Thank you all!

That was awesome! Really enjoyed all your sets. I have an earworm of the amazing "I Fell Flat" performance from Glenn & friends. (Heine: I noticed Glenn's beards too, I couldn't tell which was the before and the after. :) )

Yeah more bathroom Phlebia may be submitted! I gotta do some frame in frame like the cool kids did...

On a related not, are music videos By songfighters that weren't made for songfight desired? I have a few audiovisual performances from a few years ago if they fit, but they have nothing to do with songfight other than involving me.

Enjoyed watching the stream this morning (I wasn't hardcore enough to stay up till 4am for the live version). Great to see the dynamic hosting duo of Jeff and Leah again and the legendary Glenn Case. If I can convince certain others to get involved (i.e. the wife), I will try to bring back Stuff and Nonsense in video form.

I should have a free 20 mins to video a few tunes. itll be a nice change of pace from what has become a rather monotonous routine.

We have a couple in the reservoir, and if I could do it again, I would've played them between interviews. But that's all for others to decide now.

Really enjoyed the Niveous and Fluffy interviews... Partway through Spud. They're great.

I really want to do a set, and I really don't. [Whiny list of excuses].
Just wanted to echo Niv in thanking J$. He was a Nur Ein judge when I started recording again, and he really encouraged me.
