    Wow, Amanda, you actually listened though ALL my songs! What an honor! I really really thank you for taking all this time. You are incredible. I wish I had more time for the FAWM site right now ...

  • @fuzzy  Mar 2

    The title "She Wants Her Cup Of Stars" is a line from Shirley Jackson's novel "The Haunting of Hill House". Every time I see a catchy potential title I write it down.

  • @cts  Feb 28

    We've got jelly. There's still more to do with it, but I wanted to get as many posted as I can. Thank you for taking the time!

  • @fearlessflight2014  Feb 27

    Re our collab: I got the instrumental track together but it was midnight before I started on the vocal and I was too tired to sing in tune. So I’ll whack it down on Monday when I’m back and send it for your approval before posting.

  • @pfoo  Feb 26

    Great! I'm glad you were able to do something with it 😀

  • @fearlessflight2014  Feb 26

    I’m still committed to that collab, I got distracted by the super skirmish but I have one more chance tomorrow. I’ll really TRY to get it over the line.

  • @cts  Feb 25

    Check your email when you get a chance.

  • @cts  Feb 25

    It's coming along. I hope to have it ready later today. Trying to catch up/ finish up with my other collaborators as I don't think I'm going to have much time this week. Don't worry - we'll get it in!

  • @jibbidy34  Feb 24

    Congratulations Centurion Soldier! You wrote 100 comments for your fellow FAWMers!! You made this place even better. You took your time to listen to other people's songs and you have 100 thank you's from all of them and from me! Here’s your badge. Excellent work and keep busting’ those zongs!!

  • @barbara  Feb 24

    Oh--! Thanks for the comment-bombing today!!!! 😁
    I would be delighted to have "Intricate" become our collab. Let's work on it during our Iceland trip, then, yah?
    You're da best!

  • @riverbear14 Feb 23

    Okay, dear

  • @riverbear14 Feb 23

    I think the guitar was perhaps too much.

  • @fearlessflight2014  Feb 22

    Hey there, I've worked out I can grab some time for FAWMing today, Sunday and Monday but I can't find the lyric you sent me on slack. Is it called "Circles"? If so I have it pasted into my notebook.

  • @andygetch  Feb 20

    Maybe if I write a sappy love song......

  • @wacha  Feb 20

    Thank you for listening to "Living On Love", glad you liked it.

  • @andygetch  Feb 19

    Hi, I am def nowhere LOL. I'll let you know if I get a worthwhile angry grrrrl idea.

  • @barbara  Feb 19

    No, YOU made it to 14!!!!!!!! YAY!!!!!

  • @riverbear14 Feb 19

    Coolness!!!!! Sssssssnnake..

  • @fuzzy  Feb 18

    You won!!

  • @andygetch  Feb 18

    Congratulations on posting number 14. So where are we?

  • @riverbear14 Feb 17

    Can you work with something spacey?

  • @riverbear14 Feb 15

    I rather thought not. Hmmm. I'll see what I can do

  • @zoom  Feb 14

    Thanx for your kind Welcome and comment on 'come midnight' 😘
    I liked the challenge - so Thank you for that ! 🤗

  • @riverbear14 Feb 14

    Can you use this?

  • @riverbear14 Feb 13

    Okay, umm. hmm. I’m in love on the atomic level
    sometimes it makes me feel excited
    other days I simply carry on
    until we can be reunited

    In the morning, cold and creaky
    my feet cold as an iceberg
    heart pumping still forward looking
    but not jumping like a Rydberg

    Single cell, what the hell
    I wonder if I am drifting
    until we join. until we join
    my attitude will be shifting

  • @defaultdave  Feb 12

    Thanks for swinging by and comenting.
    Been wanting to do a song using my harmonica like that for awhile. Little Walter has a song called “Blue Midnight (alternative take)”, and I wanted a similar opening sound.
    Thanks again for you comment and compliments.

  • @cowex  Feb 12

    Yay! Yeah - that's a great album. Distilled power pop. When I heard about the 2015 remaster, I got really excited to hear unreleased tracks, but I don't think it added much in the way of unreleased stuff.

    I like a lot of the songs, but I think the one that stuck with me the most was "The Resolution" from The Glass Passenger. I'm happy Andrew McMahon is still making music, even though he keeps changing the darn band name every few years 😉.

  • @candle Feb 12

    Thanks for the great comment on Tender Tang. I'm glad you envisioned something completely different. That's what I try to do: incite a reaction in the listener. Just because I have one picture in my head that I am "describing in sound" doesn't mean someone else might envision something completely different. It's great to see that the theory holds true! Thank you!

    See You In The Shadows…

  • @standup  Feb 12

    Most of my gear is raised up above floor level, but we had a water heater die (or something) and flooded the basement studio with 1-2” of water.

  • @barbara  Feb 11

    "Someone could add some sweet harmonies for it, yes? 😁"

    Yes indeed! Any time!!

  • @riverbear14 Feb 11

    Well, I suppose interwebs. I would have you over, but...

  • @standup  Feb 10

    I sent you something yesterday to the email address you have on your contact button, and its from, which may not be on your list of acceptable email addresses. Let me know if you did not get it, and I’ll try again.

  • @riverbear14 Feb 9

    Hey dear... you have not asked me for help on anything... Is there something I can do to add.. strangeness to one of yours? funky keyboards, strange bass, over the top guitar? Mandolin.. resonator, anything?? Maybe a banjo that is reversed.. way cool? I don't know, maybe.

  • @pfoo  Feb 7

    Hey! I'm not sure about lyrics - that's always a struggle for me, but I keep trying. I will send you something if I can!

    I will likely have some instrumentals needing lyrics and singing - let me know if you want to collab on any of those.

  • @standup  Feb 7

    I will work on that.

  • @standup  Feb 7

    Absolutely, let's collaborate. How would you prefer to work? Want a weird synth thing from me? Lyrics? Dog whining?

  • @riverbear14 Feb 6

    Uh, I'm not sure. All I know is I was playing it and my wife thought it was a cd. She didn't think I played like this. lol!!!!

  • @ampersandman  Feb 5

    I love you how always make more sense of my songs than I do myself. Thank you.

  • @cblack  Feb 5

    Glad you enjoyed it! Honestly, I'm still not happy with that track. Maybe as a "bonus track" on the album, where it's clearly marked that the listener didn't pay extra for that song. 😝

  • @oblivionratula  Feb 4

    Thanks for the feedback on Just Let It Happen. Felt like the perfect title to break the seal on my first song. I still feel the piano could have shut up for a couple bars somewhere in the middle, but that's for the performer and producer to figure out. 😉

  • @riverbear14 Feb 3

    I think it is.. I seem to remember it was warm outside

  • @riverbear14 Feb 3

    Good! You need this in like July or September. It's your busy season.

  • @riverbear14 Feb 3

    Hey hey.. you work too much!

  • @fearlessflight2014  Feb 2

    Surprise me! There’s no rush, I’m away from my studio for ten days.

  • @andygetch  Feb 2

    Re: Electric car/guitar will reappear in more songs. DM me if you want a piece of the action 😀

  • @riverbear14 Feb 2

    I'm sort of here

  • @odilongreen  Jan 31

    Very much "let's do this" indeed. Have a wonderful, productive FAWM!

  • @fearlessflight2014  Jan 31

    We're on for the random collab? How exciting!!

  • @riverbear14 Jan 25

    Okay, I can try. Up to one album. That's eleven songs for me usually.

  • @pfoo  Jan 24

    Hi! Looking forward to your music!

  • @mosley  Jan 2018

    😀 It's almost FAWM!!!

  • @atitlan Jan 2018

    Hey?! - Hey Jude? Hey, Hey We're the Monkees? Hey-si Fantazee? Whichever 'Hey' you had in mind ... 'Hey!!' have great FAWM this year.

  • @metalfoot  Jan 2018

    Let's do this! 😁

  • @standup  Jan 2018

    I'm back, and I hope you are too!

  • @barbara  Jan 2018

    LOVE the album cover art! Whatever is on her mind?...

  • @toms  Jan 2018

    Do I know you, Madam?

  • @tcelliott  Jan 2018

    Beer for the win!

  • @beat  Jan 2018

    ...let’s open our ears

  • @timfatchen  Jan 2018

    Hi Amanda! I'm short on sanity at the moment..

  • @headfirstonly  Jan 2018

    HellloooooO! You ready for this?

  • @barbara  Jan 2018


  • @ampersandman  Jan 2018
