Influences: Seasons, leaves and Katy Perry's body.
FAWM 3 for me : ) Managed an unexpected win last year but making no promises this year, I'm not ambitious! Will see how the wind blows : )
It's been a tough old year so expect sorrow, despair and regret. What else is there to write about? 😝
Personal aims - learn to transition the F chord. I say that every year, as ever I have made no further effort with my guitar playing, whoooops! #lazeee
Enjoy yourselves y'all : )
P.S Shout out to my ̶e̶x̶ current beau, @adforperu , if you're feeling unfulfilled after listening to my songs and want to sink your teeth into something a bit meatier /musically accomplished, check out his stuff, he's VERY clever.
UPDATE: wee hours of 26th Feb. Sooo happy to have done 14, I've never felt the old creative juices flow so wonderfully as they have this Fawm! Without wanting to sound like an oscar speech, thank you to the Fawmfounders, to every beautiful person who commented on my songs and especially to @haim @jorh @degausser @iwilleatyou @thelowestbitter and @shortdan for helping me achieve a Fawm win 😀 Gonna miss this music community so much in March!

My name is Tom, but Vom is so much more exotic, memorable, and pukey
Thanks for all your ace comments Julie - 'toe tapped so hard my feet nearly fell off' is amazing -- geez that's almost a groovy song lyric! Congrats on winning! I will stop being an a-hole n catch up on listening soon!
YOU'RE a wiener
not yet... I have one song that is re-recorded, I need another one.
Congrats to you... and thanks for mentioning me in your profile.. I enjoyed this fawm also thanks to you so it's mutual!
I didn't think you were fawming bc you weren't in my feed!!! 🙊 then I was catching up with iwilleatyou's feed and clicked on you and saw you're done with 14!! and then I realized why I didn't know.. you somehow got unwatched 😭
this apparently has happened to other people, not sure what up.. but I've got some serious catching up to fo
Awesome! If I get something interesting pre FAWM 2019 i'll send an email to see if you dig. Dig? Kewl.
Edit Lol at that gif from ad!
Ah, okay....it takes far too much effort to read liner notes at his stage in February I’m afraid
I am going to feel like such an asshole if i am right and scare him away. Sorry that translates to arshole.
Congrajdyulayshuns on hitting 14! I always knew you could do it not really but....Enjoyed the collaboration and I'd be interested to hear what we can come up with if we do it again. It sounds like we got sort of an "IVY"-ish vibe going (American band with a French female vocalist if you haven't heard of them)---> google Ivy (band). I tried to post the wiki page but it lead to the flower. CHEERS!!
Aww, your comment about my new little song made me smile. Wow, you've done so many songs this year- well done! Well jealous, I've been too poorly to sing, grrr. Your vox & guitar are sounding sooo wonderful btw, really great!
Uh...what makes you think I would go to your show? I have better things to do you know.
Thanks so much for all the adoring comments Julie!
I will catch up on listening to more of yours when I have the chance, they just keep coming!
Thank you julie on your last two kind comments on my songs.... you are so kind...!
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!!
I *did* say I was 'overly prolific', did I not? 😉
I dunno the chords myself.. I think it was the one between the other ones which aren't that radioheady ... so if you find those, then you'll find the ones I meant.
I just sent you a completely unsolicited email about a potential collab and yes I know it's basically the end of FAWM, and you never asked me to send you an email about a potential collab, so feel free to ignore it if you have no interest in a last minute potential collab 😀
You're very welcome! Your next word is pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis. Yes it's real. As real as deh rock.
Haha I can confirm I've never been given any robes! It was fictitious yeah! I did have a Buddhism phase though so I think I was referring to that a little.
I thought you’d like that! Night night 😀
I didn’t word that very well! Being force fed implies a third party is doing the feeding (like with pâté geese!). Being forced to eat could be one person who’s starving. It’s subtle but Captain Cox was definitely forced to eat, rather than force fed. Capisce?
But being forced to eat something and being force fed are very different things!
"Force fed" flippers Julie? Are you insane?! That's not the lyric - that would be ridiculous and trivialise what's otherwise a rather serious song. Tut tut.
I totally do! Somehow missed that ‘un.
And you sing the sweetest things Maam 😉
I haven't got that far yet but my favourite so far was probably 5 or whichever the flying one was. I'm on 7 at the moment!
No problemo. I cleared up the truth. Now people know what REALLY happened. TA TA!
It is DONE. Definitely a pleasure collaborating with you. This one was quite the challenge to piece together because I've never written in the way we approached this (you doing the chorus, me the verse, gluing it etc.) It was hard but fun!
Thanks for the comment on Numb 😁 playing the uke definitely helped a lot with the strumming and the finger positioning. I only used "easy" chords in my song though 😁
Lol at your comment on Clive’s latest song!!
Email sent with final mix. Let me know if you received the email and the link works. Damn computers. They're so computery.
GAAWWWWW!!!!!!! What the hell Julie!!! Fine! Adam......sweetie? I...I.... I LOVE YOU!!!!!!!! There. Is that adequate enough for you julie ya big....doodoo schmoodoo head! Just a heads up I hear they are having a sale on razors in Amazon. Just sayin. Now do you mind? I am reciprucateeng. Did I spell Reciprocating correctly? Probably knot.
Sorry Adam 😀 Sorry you look like a reptilon maggot pod fish cthulu sea monkey bearded hideous putrid care bear. See? I'm nice! I apologized! Now leave me alone! I are busy.
Define normal. Because...well....I'm going to have nightmares just knowing that beard exists. I even spit out my bagel out of disgust just now. It's all mushy and filled with saliva. Like a disgusting maggot pod. Pretty much what that pic looks like.
Oh is that Adam?? Whew! Thank God! For a second there I thought a hideous Reptilon from Clavius 9 came crashing into your bathroom.
Don't block my email. That hurts my feelings.
I have no idea what's up with my email but replying is acting up. It shows my 3rd attempt went through so I'm hoping that worked. Sorry if you got all 3. Anyhow I got the files! YAY! err...i mean...YUK!
SO I'm going to get working on this tomorrow. Alright?aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaalrighty then.
You're a dick. A dickless bitch!
Haha! It's about my brother - what made you think it was about Geez?!?
Oh.. you warmed my heart with worrying and remembering how i felt last time we talked. You are such a good soul. And im out of that mood.. im good again, thanks.
yes yes...i know. You are in denial. I'm too much of a rock star and you were too intimidated to ask me for a collab. Totally understandable. Now if you'll excuse me I have my groupies to attend to.
Make sure when you send the email you send it nicely and with rock star respect. Wet and Happy??? sigh....i'm not gonna ask.
How many times have I complimented your singing and your songs and you don't have the pelotas to ask me to collaborate? I swear Julie if you don't stop with this nonsense you leave me no choice but to throw a pie on Adam's face. Now then, Let's collaborate! What do you have in mind? You already know what I am willing to do...I'd love to hear you sing a pop/rock tune. The full works...bass, guitars, drums, chickens, ducks. I'll even make it super easy for you if you're down. I can create the melodies for you to sing etc. Let me know! What I can do is make some rough drafts (just vocals and guitar), send them your way until you find something you like. Then I'll get to the full works. If you have other ideas, I'm totally game.
Oh I wish could have a gig in England, everybody from there seems to be nice and supportive (You, Your boyfriend and Paul), and you are just three people, hopefully I'll have a gig there if everything will go according to the plan, sooner or later. Thank you for your kind comment . Waiting for your next song. I wish I can finish some songs without a skirmish, It's a bit harder this year even though I have more time.
Glad I could satisfy your Disney desires! Looking forward to your lovey-dovey song 😀
Do it. It sounds cool.
Yeah I meant to say that you were on fire when you were writing it, like you were really into it and getting many great melodies and tunes and production ideas and stuff like that... Enjoy that concert!!
That's it!!! The Elephant Man! God I was wondering who you remind me of.
No Thankyou for bringing it too life! And I don’t just not hate it, I genuinely think it’s great, you have it a whole new life and your vocals were sounding great
6 already! Prolific! I look forward to catching up tomorrow Julie! Thanks for all the lovely comments:)
Maybe we should retire and just FAWM all year round 😉 Ah the dream
My pleasure, I would be even more my pleasure you said you fancied doing a day's drama teaching at hope valley college tomorrow 😉 so i can FAWM my ass off. I defo having the week of next week!! priorities and all that. Keep em coming lovely x
No it’s fine I’m more than happy for you to just upload! Your other stuff are great so I know this will be too, Can’t wait to hear it 😀
Why you can borrow it anytime 😀 I think it’s safe to say I’ll not be doing a second dictaphone track this February! Oh, and we totally could have done a collab with that one. Grrr. I’ll just have to write another!
A romantic song? If by romantic you mean a nicer song (non metal), then yes....i do have plans to write one or two or maybe a hundred. You'll just have to wait. Feb 14th is still a bit away Julie. Sheesh. Some people. And where's MY song??? I want you to sing with a full band backup...drums bass guitar etc. Go tell Adam to make himself useful and help you out here. Seriously, I'd love to hear you sing a rock/pop song. I'm thinking maybe Darling Buds style. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Darling Buds.
Thanks for the welcome and kind comments Julie - I haven't heard any of your stuff before I think, and bloody hell you're good, amazing voice! Loved all three songs but Cry Wolf in particular - reading about how you found it difficult to record/didn't like how it sounded I completely sympathise with, but still find incredible because I think it's brilliant. Keep up the musical goodness
I don’t mind at all! Can’t wait to see what magic you work on it 😀
Hi Judy, I don’t yet have a collaborator for “scars”, so if that you was an offer to collaborate I would love too. Love the heartfelt material you are producing!
Ha ha, no you didn't ask me before but the answer is yes - that is exactly where I chose the name from. I've been oddbod on forums and music sites for years and I forget exactly why I chose that - I think I just liked the film at the time.
Thanks for listening to "that's one, that's two." Yeah, those lyrics came together once I came up with the chorus hook. Fortunately, I'm not in that situation either but drew on some feelings from a long time ago. I'm slower to start but no less motivated this time around!
Welcome back! (Any chance you could set your songs to be downloadable? Soundcloud is being an arse with its streaming for some reason.)
Oh if only I had neighbors who are musicians. Imagine an apartment complex of musicians! On second thought that sounds like chaos...nevermind.
Thank you, I'm looking forward for your songs too, in fact I'm gonna listen to them right now! It's also MY third fawm, isn't that exciting?
I’ll lift you from somewhere!
Don't dream of using Ad's studio, just sit back in the knowledge that you don't need it 😉 . hee hee
Yay! Another february. And you're back, too! How exciting. 😁
Haha, tomorrow afternoon I promise. I’m off work! 😀
Sorry despair and regret? This does not seem like the gal I see on my FB feed. 😉 Excited to hear what you come up with. -Ru
Hi, have a nice fawm 2018.
Hi! So glad to connect again this Feb! It's going to be a fun month of music!
The way things are going here in the States, I probably should head over to England. I'll get my Phwoarrrr T-shirt ready.
I'm here!!!! I believe that was the question, my French ain't great... Great to see you here again! 😀
Hello lovely 😊
What on Earth does "Phwoarrrrr" mean? Are you trying to say "fire" while eating the head of a reindeer? Explain yourself!!!!
FAWM 3 already? Welcome back again! 😊
Hey hey Miss x
Looking forward to more tunes from you this year. Roll on Feb 1st.
Wooo Happy FAWMING!
FAWM 3 already...? rock on!
Hey love, you in again this year?
On your marks...
