    Thank you, Andy!

  • @adnama17  Mar 16

    Oh I have no choice in that matter Mr Getch! It will be slow going, but the first hurdle of just getting organized to go at has been conquered! πŸ˜€

  • @jessica14  Mar 13

    Thanks for directing me to "Sabrina's song" πŸ˜€ I think she would love to hear it, cause she is a musican as well.... I have great memories of our collab and hope we get around to it again! πŸ˜€

    Thanks for stopping by & listening to "Their Own Way Home" - I appreciate your comment!

  • @metalfoot  Mar 3

    The music for Little One is completely written. The recording should be up today, I think, all else being equal.

    Thanks for listening to Psalm 51! πŸ˜€

    the good thing is that there's still more to discover in March as we all catch up to 11,000 songs that came out of this year!

  • @metalfoot  Mar 1

    *holds up the Xylic Xylophone award*

  • @gardeningangel1 Mar 1

    Hi Andy! I've been enjoying your artwork posts on Instagram during those 'other' months. Will be catching up listening as best as I can with my limited data allotment. 44 songs, wow!!!

  • @sueawesome Mar 1

    Oh! Yeah, pretty crazy what happened and how all the roads are all split up and all that's really left. I didn't write any stories like that into the song, just sited actual ghost towns.

  • @sueawesome Mar 1

    thanks for the comment on my song 'gold rush soul'!

    So what story were you referring to? (The one you looked up). You didn't end up saying.

  • @musicsongwriter Feb 28

    Hi Andy, thank you for your warm comments. I'll be back.

  • @ihelen  Feb 27

    Thanks for commenting on my math song! As for the conversion tables in your reference book - perhaps a few stickers or colored sketches on the side would make it more fun. That's what some kids (and adults) would do! πŸ˜„

  • @johnhudome  Feb 27

    Wow, so many songs. Thank you for your kind comments about my song Townes.

  • @laotranati Feb 25

    Hi! Thanks for your input on my songs (Working titulo and Puede ser). What do you mean about NaSoAlMo being much quieter than FAWM? Is that related to less people participating? Or less challenges and stuff like that?

  • @unkept Feb 24

    Thank you for your comments on my songs!

  • @brrrse  Feb 24

    You are welcome to any of them friend. I wouldn't know which one to pick lol

  • @unkept Feb 9

    Hey Andy! Right back at you, this has been a ton of fun so far.

  • @vegansongs Feb 8

    Hi @andygetch -The health aspects of veganism is a side benefit for me. I think it wrong to deny animals the right not to be property in the same way it is wrong to deny humans the right to not be property or a resource of another. Being "like cases" in that we are sentient beings. I would not consider using humans without consent. We cannot get consent from the animals to use them. All the science agrees that well planned plant based diet is appropriate for all life stages in humans..So using non-consenting sentient beings for food is unnecessary. We can create alternatives to using animals- what I think is the ethical path. And it would be best to create alternatives that are sustainable. Consuming less is always going to be better for our planet! Animals should never be thought of as commodities. Peace!

  • @snoozin  Feb 8

    Hi Andy, nice to hear from you. I am going in for dental surgery this morning (Yuck) and don't know how long I'll be out of commission in recovery. I'll get in touch when I can make sense and we'll come up with a plan. Feel free to share any ideas you may have.

  • @vegansongs Feb 8

    Hi @andygetch - It's been about 14 years for me too. Many years before that in a confused state of vegetarianism. I think it was 2003 when I read vegan books that made it clear. Using animals is wrong. They are vulnerable and we do not need to exploit that vulnerability. Then the learning really began-I am now in involved with the abolitionist approach to animal rights and really learning about historical specieism , Rights based theory and intersectionality of oppressions. Amazing. I think the most important contribution I could hope to make while I am here on Earth is in offering creative nonviolent vegan education. If we get 10 percent of the population to go vegan then the conversation really starts about Use vs Treatment. It was the same with abolition of slavery- far too long there were groups calling for more humane treatment of slaves! (Like animal welfare groups now) When what we need to support and "call for" promote is the abolition of all animal use.

  • @vegansongs Feb 8

    Hi Andy, Thank you for visit to my Vegansongs page!
    What a great community spirit- I am loving my first Fawm!
    And thank you for your comments on The Favored Few- I am going to revisit that song after Fawm- I appreciate all the feedback. It is just great- so supportive!

  • @tsunamidaily Feb 6
