Eleventh year of FAWM. Probably going to try to finish it in the first half, as second half of February is stupidly busy.

2/2 update: And will you look at that? The first half of February just got stupidly busy too. Lack of sleep, it is!

  • @audrey  Mar 4

    Thank you for your lovely comment on "Silver Anniversary"

  • @crisp1  Mar 1

    Thanks for the kind words about The Freer I Feel. I'm very happy I got to collaborate with @wacha. If you haven't heard her song Jaguar, take a listen to that one, too!

  • @wacha Mar 1

    Thank you very much for all of your comments on my songs! I was really honored to be able to work on "The Freer I Feel". @crisp1's lyrics were gift her handed me.

  • @kahlo2013  Feb 28

    Ah.... no apologies!! But one of these seasons.... this year was crazy fun and crazy intense for me but that led to a boatload of lyrics, some instrumentals, and over 40 collaborations! I look forward to sleep.

  • @kahlo2013  Feb 28

    Glad you liked Can't Say No. Val is awesome and I love that she brings out the rocker in me! Missed having any collabs with you for awhile!

  • @wacha Feb 21

    Thanks for the feedback on "Burn the Witches", I comment to people all the time who complain about how the demo sounds telling them the writing is more important than the recording but then did the exact same thing on my own demo. Of the protest songs I have written this month, I felt like this may have been the weakest but it's starting to grow on me.

  • @wacha Feb 17

    Thanks for the feedback on "Dust Off Your Riveters", I have a habit of getting something stuck in my head that I like to so much I decide it should be the chorus. Having my friend tell me that those lined might be better served being the opening line has really made me work a little harder at the song rather than resting comfortably on what I would normally make the chorus. Repeating the first line was really just because I wanted to use use it as the chorus but made the decision not to

  • @valeriecox  Feb 17

    No more awkward than XGFBFF I wouldn't think. 😝

  • @valeriecox  Feb 17

    Yeah. Maybe at some point Annabelle and Jenny can get together.

  • @valeriecox  Feb 15

    Not the 12 string, just a groovy effect called Lux Verb. Not sure if they mean deluxe or luxurious or deluxurious.

  • @sunnymae  Feb 14

    Hi @helenseviltwin @sunnymae here. I just finished song morph 2 so it's your turn now. Enjoy. This was wonderful.

  • @kahlo2013  Feb 2017

    Thanks for stopping by - especially songs with collaborators!

  • @marthie Feb 2017

    Thank you for your feedback on "Space Travel"

  • @kahlo2013  Feb 2017

    You lead a skirmish last weekend - and I wrote some crazy rambling lyrics in the midst of falling on and off asleep as I was writing Stuck in the Middle of Blue -- I cleaned it up and Pete Murphy made s cool ballad - thought I wouls share in case you wanted to hear and so you don't think i liked that song as it was...

  • @wacha Feb 2017

    Thanks for the feedback on my tracks!

  • @wacha Feb 2017

    Took your advice on my Untitled Happy song which is now "Come Together". The audio is now up. Thank you so much, that one word change in the bridge made a huge difference.

  • @mal Feb 2017

    I don't know that I'm proper back, I just know that I miss this, and writing, and all of you, and frankly, I need a better hobby than sitting at the bar after work with all the other old men, drinking beer, talking shite, and watching women's gymnastics. So, yeah, not proper back, but working my way back to it. Miss you.

  • @valeriecox  Feb 2017

    Yeah, I left the stick noise in on purpose. I liked it. Then added some string noise to compliment.

  • @vegansongs Feb 2017

    Thanks for your comment on Favored Few my Fawm song number 3. I am going to rework it - highlite those lyrics better but for now on to song number 4! Thank again.

  • @kahlo2013  Feb 2017

    Thanks - I totally do not hear it as punk at all even after thinking about Margo's comment - she's the crazy wonderful guitar player in my band. Maybe I need to write some punk for herπŸ˜€

  • @kahlo2013  Feb 2017

    Thank you, Helen. Means a lot coming from you.

  • @kahlo2013  Feb 2017

    And I thought I was the only person trying to make connections from seemingly random soundboard posts ...

  • @ajna1960  Feb 2017

    Thank you for the great SS theme idea, and thank you for your comments on my 'Middle of Something' song πŸ˜€
    I tried to listen to your take on Middle Of Something, but the player wouldn't play 😞 Please let me know when it is fixed πŸ˜€

  • @kahlo2013  Feb 2017

    Not really - just a bit of the chorus but at the end wanted to repeat core of choruses but not that bit twice so went back and defined them as they were as a Lift from chorus to verse and then let that also serve as the outro. And thanks for no penalty on using wrong title which I didn't notice until I posted - I was dozing off throughout so truly tired and confused. Gotta love the FAWM zombie state.

  • @crisp1  Feb 2017

    Thanks for the kind words, Helen! You're helping to keep me inspired. Your song, Warning Cry, is wonderfully ominous. You could have tagged it as one of the dream songs, though it's more of a nightmare, isn't it? πŸ˜€ Good work.

  • @johnstaples  Feb 2017

    Hey skirmish host! In my post for super skirmish ss3a I included a link to a site that adjusts the time to local times. BUT...my link was customized for the start of my skirmish! So, if you used my post as a template and did not change the link your link will NOT reflect the correct time and you will confuse your skirmishers!!!.

    If you used my post as a template you need to either 1) correct the link to the time of your skirmish or 2) provide a link to a general conversion site like this https://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/

    Sorry if my link caused any confusion!!

  • @tiller2  Feb 2017

    Hi Helen, happy fawming, and sorry you're so so busy... selfishly sorry, because I'm looking for a Joan Jett-style vocal. Just in case, lyrics are here: http://fawm.org/songs/66177/ . I'm planning a chunky, driving guitar sound; I'm in no hurry and am up for collab on the music side, too. Cheers.

  • @iwilleatyou Feb 2017

    Awesome! Just sent you an email.

  • @nancyrost  Feb 2017

    Still laughing about "all the French he knew". Funny because it's true!

  • @gordon Feb 2017

    Hi Helen, looking forward to hearing your songs this year. Thanks for listening.

  • @jcooper  Feb 2017

    Thanks for the comment on "a song to wake you in the morning" glad you like the violin!

  • @natchdan  Feb 2017

    Thanks! Hope you're doing well πŸ˜€

  • @kahlo2013  Feb 2017

    Thanks for stopping. Yes a kind of tongue in cheek comedic stage musical style. So a G and S operetta is indeed an option.

  • @iwilleatyou Feb 2017

    Howdy, I just checked out the thread "Any shouters/ screamers on here?" and see that you can do riot grrl type screaming and shouting.You up for a collab?

  • @vikkiflawith  Jan 2017

    Have a great FAWM! 😁

  • @nancyrost  Jan 2017

    Hellie Hellie Hellie!

  • @karan  Jan 2017

    Heya Helen, have a wonderful FAWM! πŸ˜€

  • @expendablefriend Jan 2017

    Yo! I await my next earworm from you πŸ˜€

  • @sentense  Jan 2017

    YAAAAY!!!! HEEEELEEEEN!!!!!!! *waves* 😁

  • @valeriecox  Jan 2017

    Going instrumental is certainly going to make the acapella difficult.

  • @tcelliott  Jan 2017

    Helen, I've missed you. Glad we're both back for FAWM once again.

  • @johncrossman  Jan 2017

    Hi, H!

    Looking forward to hearing your new music! Always a fan!

    Hiya Helen - you about this year? (y)

  • @orinoco  Jan 2017

    I was planning on playing it, but if you're keen then it would sound significantly nicer if you did I'm sure!

  • @orinoco  Jan 2017

    HELEN! Have a good FAWM
