Is there a possibility the judges could chime in sooner this round? Not to be a complainer... but it's easier to bring the A game when it's on!

Sure. Having been in last year's finals, I understand how it feels ;)
I've been a bit lazy lately; but I'll try my best this week.

This is an easy 15-minute song cycle. Someone needs to bring it.

This feels like a Kraken Lives origin story shadow song.

A struggle I am having:
Staying on the JONATHAN side of pronunciation, steering away from TELETHON.

A GAME Of Thrones is waiting for me if I can ever finish mixing.
Ahh mixing, the bane of my existence.

Just kidding.
Ok I'm in. Holy. Relief and fatigue and sadness and all kinds of things. Can't believe I did the whole Nur Ein.
This has been so much fun and everyone was completely awesome.
Thanks so much everybody.
Good luck Mike!

Thanks, you too! I feel the same way and I may take off work sometime this week to remember what real life is like.

I'm right behind you - ran into a bunch of problems last minute with my guitar tone and mixing unexpected stylistic choices! It's definitely a difficult spin on what I normally do.

I'm in!!! That was close! I should uh learn to mix and master with rendered tracks so my project doesn't take forever to render.

(or maybe the problem is I unwittingly wrote a book of lyrics and quadrupled all the vocals)

Edit: too bad i can't post a new master :\

Hey thanks, Mike. Yours too!
I think I have music fatigue now. Gotta go to bed. Can't even hear what anything is anymore.
