Maybe the tree was trying to hug your car, Sam. It's a Northern California Huggertree.

Or maybe the opposite. It could be a bigotree.

Sorry to hear about your car man. I hope that tree had good liability insurance.

Hugs, all I really want is hugs

Drunk hugs cause a couple of heart attacks
Drunk hugs are unusually mild
Drunk hugs keep in pace with the pedophiles
Drunk hugs are boringly wild

Ha ha! Excellent pun there.

It was a city tree, so I'm going to make the likely futile attempt to get the city to reimburse my deductible.

In like Flynn with an electropop anthem. 43 tracks! Constant "out of CPU resources" errors! Fun!

It seems like the fightmaster email gremlins may be up to their tricks again. The only submission I see in the inbox is from Flaming Tiger. So, JB and anybody else who has submitted, please resend your song when you have a chance. Sorry for the inconvenience.

I haven't submitted mine yet. Since the songs aren't due until Wednesday, do you expect to see more entries already?

Not necessarily, but they don't always all show up at the last minute. And it slows things down if I only look for missing entries at the last minute too.

I want to hug you like an animal
I want to feel you from the inside
I want to hug you like an animal
My whole existence is hugs
You get me closer to god

Done (on Sunday) but the engineer mixed it today.

No complaining about the mix allowed, aaight?
I'm paying the $260 so I'm the only one allowed to!!

This was an interesting process for me, turning up at the studio to write and record a song about things I'm not big on, in three hours. Something kinda deep emerged (go on, roll your eyes). Anyway give me your votes so we don't have to recount
Everything is about perspective. :shock:

Sent it in seconds ago, with seconds to spare. Quick write, quick record, quick mix. Stupid Thanksgiving! ;)
