May have accidentally done that thing where I write a song and realize that it's extremely similar to a song I already know but haven't listened to in a long time. Oh well, it sounds good to me! Still need to actually record it though. Edit: figured it out, I'm totally ripping off Spacemen 3. But they spent half of their time blatantly ripping off the Velvet Underground so I guess I'm paying it forward haha.

Seaweed Delete may be submitting a song. My input on this one is basically setting up the microphone and giving him advice on using FL studio. He's super stoked about it, and has two lyric sheets written out.

I had wanted to do a pirate-y song about the Straight of Bent, but just couldn't get it going. So instead, it's a (mostly) stream of consciousness thing. Or unconscious. You know how it goes.

Rob thinks this Urban Dictionary definition is funny.

Fussy Britches
Someone who is trying to hurry or speed something up.
Mike: When are we going to go? We're gonna be late. If we're late, i'll cry....i swear...LET'S GO!!!
Christian: Easy fussy britches...they're open 24 hours. You'll get your happy meal.

Whatever. Fussy Britches is in.
Punk rock is for children. Grab a six-pack at Half-a-Dozen Records.

Threw together a cover art submission, but I still need to listen to my song before committing to that part.

Ok, in! The optional challenge was to make the most commercially unviable song possible, right?

Speaking of which... I did some art last week and never resized and uploaded it. So I just got it done. But I like yours better.
