Well, I was gonna submit this, but the title isn't "Do You Have A Plan", so I'll just post it in a couple places on the boards.

Submitted, got confirmation.

This week's goals:
1. Don't be afraid of the microphone: Some improvement. I'm not too worried about people hearing my voice, but I'm still getting nervous because I'm worried about keeping proper time with the music.
2. Less muddled-sounding mix: Better, I believe.

On the other hand, I think I bit off more than I could chew this time. I wrote a song that appears to demand a better vocal performance than I am, at present, capable of delivering. Also, for some reason I decided to write a biographical song about someone who barely qualifies as a public figure, which might not have been the best idea.

I couldn't make it this week. Didn't get a good idea, or my computer hooked back up in time.
Maybe I'll make the next one. Would love to make a comeback here haha. Not that I left a high bar to pass for myself.

Jerkatorium, check. I don't want to just list everybody because I don't want to ruin the "surprise" of seeing who entered when the songs get posted. But I also don't want to have to deal with the fallout when somebody got the confirmation but their email disappeared. :(

I'm not picky, it can be a Labatt or whatever passes for "beer" up there. :P

Decided for once not to submit rudely late. Largely because it's an incorrigible habit of mine that needs to stop. I'm happy for those who submit late occasionally getting included.

Still working on my track tho.

Edit: upon wiktionarying the word incorrigible, I acknowledge what an odd/oxymoronic statement I just made. Perhaps.
