Play #cowritewithphil -- tweet lyrics / titles / ideas at me with that tag, and if I use it, you get to be INTERNET FAMOUS, which is a kind of famous.
Ah dang. No Norman-Henson? You got me all excited. Guess I'll make do with these four timeless gems, then. Sigh.
guitar stands, that should be the sequel; your comment on "I Lost a Tripod" made me laugh out loud...
Awfully quiet around here...I'm sure you've got your reasons and I hope they're benign, but looking forward to hearing more from you before the month is up.
Thanks for the comments on "...Back to the Zoo". I think you're right about the last stanza, constructive suggestions always appreciated.
Hi Phil, Glad you found the harmonica titties ditty. People have been avoiding that one for some reason. Thanks for listening and commenting.
Hi Phil, thanks for the lyrical suggestions. Yes the recurring Big World would've been a good idea! Perhaps if I get an opportunity to tweak I will. At the moment its straight onto the next though. Cheers
Hi Phil! One of your songs came on my shuffle today and it reminded me that I might get the chance to hear some brand new, fresh-out-of-the-oven Norman creations this year, and I got so excited at the thought
Happy FAWM, Phil! I'll keep my ears on you.
Looking forward as always to hearing your stuff.
Hi Phil! So looking forward to hearing your writing again this year.
(Grabs tissue box.) All right, HIT ME.
Hi Phil and welcome once again.
Dónde está el supermercado, Phil. From the bottom of my heart.
Have a great FAWM Phil
What can I say about Phil that hasn't already been said in countless court records and restraining orders I've put against him? Phil really is "a guy who might stab me."
We'll see if we can fire up the Twin Quasars machine
Me too. But how? Unless you want sparse mopey robots you might have to make the first demo
Looking forward to fawming with you!
It’s your most annoying collab partner here – the one who re-writes your perfectly fine lyrics and whinges on about rhymes
Just dropping in to say hello.
If I promise to behave and curb my OCD control freak tendencies, perhaps you can find it in yourself to forgive my terrible traits and give it another go.
I'm a bit concerned about this "Cow Rite With Phil" stunt. What exactly are you doing with these cows?! Is it humane? Or at least bovine?
