Thanks Sam. Just checked the archive to confirm: This week marks two years since my last entry. Only two songs submitted since leaving the military in 2013, yikes.

Hope I can contribute more consistently from now on. Also, if anyone needs dobro or mandolin, I'm your guy.

I wrote a song based on a style that I can't pull off (simple song carried by harmony singing) and I'm regretting it. But I may submit it anyway.

Officially submitted. The lyrics are related to the title, though it's kind of an oblique literary reference.

I may update the site Sunday night, so, all y'all stragglers should aim closer to the deadline this time if you can. I am scheduled to have some dental surgery Monday that will have me laid up for a few days, so, I'll need to take care of the update before that so it doesn't sit around for days.

I have some lyrics I like, but I'm way behind on the music. Also my daughter is leaving to go back to Denmark on Sunday, so I can't give this a lot of time. I'll try to throw something together quickly. Unless someone else wants a go at the lyrics?. . .

Good to see you back Sober.

Next time I write a song about what a pack of appalling cunts the US military are - I will request your dobro or mandolin.

We are in!

This is the most Mostess song in a while. Plodding tempo, off-kilter melody, unfinished bridge. But hey, we did it.

New recording setup because I got a new laptop and finally decided to set up a DAW in linux. So I had to find a driver for my 15 year-old A/D USB interface, get JACK working in real-time mode with minimal latency, and figure out how to use Ardour. The fact I got a song written and recorded is gravy, really.

Enjoy!

There can never be too many songs on the topic. Good to be back.

Submitted late last night - mixing on headphones, so fingers crossed it's not a complete mess. Thanks for planning ahead on the update Sam! Best of luck with the surgery.
