I might be in. I started a track and got the vocals, piano, bass, and drum programming in with a plan that I was going to layer a lot of guitars, and then I went and cut my index finger pretty badly last night. I may rearrange or try to find a way around it.

Oh, wow, thanks for the offer! I think I'm going to do some open tuning stuff to make it work. Thank you anyway!

So, House Arrest ... I thought I'd turn the phrase inside out and imagine that it was actually the house being arrested for crimes against its occupants. So I've written about the dark side of renting, unscrupulous landlords, and the economic inequalities that meant that money gets taken from one person and given to another because the other person had more money to begin with.

And musically I'm copying the wonderful Dead Kennedys track 'Nazi Punks' which seems particularly topical right now.

Brown Word is in, taking a break while I learn my Nur Ein fate with something fun and loud. Glockenspiel solo, apropos of nothing.

I haven't actually submitted my file, but I've now made enough progress to state with confidence that I'll be in. It's just a question of how much time I'll get to clean up the performances and mix now. :-)

In and submitted. Due to the aforementioned cut I had to simplify the guitar stuff I wanted to do, but at least I got to use some fuzz pedal.

Duncan is in. Not really a glockenspiel solo, maybe a tacky pinch of glock though.

Night Sky is in. No one listens to one of our songs for the glockenspiel solo, so we skipped the optional challenge this week.
Night Sky is Sally on lyrics, Steve on drums, and Matt on the other stuff

I'm in with my first entry recorded from my modest cabin in the north woods. car full of gear set up in the kitchen, ha!!

I don't know what it all means but it came out that way, so yah. but I apologize in advance for the "current events" retrospective. I just let whatever comes out out, good therapy.

peace.
