Well, Phil, I finished listening and commenting on all of your FAWM entries. It was most enjoyable. I look forward to next year. Been a pleasure.

Thanks for the heads up re: Hades Plays The Blues. I accidentally moved the track out of the proper Dropbox folder. Problem fixed, track now playing on FAWM again!

Well done to you as well. We did it!

Phil, Thanks for the comments on Love Recipe. "..beach music meets early Beatles." I'll take that. I'm not so much into what genre things are. If I like it, I listen to it. If I like it, I play it.
@hbusse Feb 20
Hey thanks for the comment and listen on Filter. I've enjoyed your tunes for a few FAWMs now.
@mojo Feb 20
Maeow eheow eew! Mrrr maaahaw.
[Mojo thanks you for your comment. Greetings to your kitty.]
@marijequerida Feb 19
Thanks so much for your comment

That's a great idea about my nose song. Perhaps future-me will have learned how to do audio tricks like that.
I planned out the message before writing the rest of the words. I was running out of song ideas, so I challenged myself to write some semi-cohesive lyrics around it. It was harder than I thought it'd be.
@hamiltonpoolhall Feb 17
You know, any time in the coming year if I'm having one of those dark days when I wonder what it all means, and if I should have gone into the garment trade instead, I'm going to reread the line "a fantastic blend of feel-good witty snark," and feel like I've done something right with my life. Thanks for your latest comments, and yes, it hasn't escaped me that memorizing some of these tunes is going to be wicked. Now to catch up on my PN listening...
@nancyrost Feb 16
You make a very fetching werewolf.
@hoopshank Feb 15
Couldn't get on to the hosting web site either but it's working now. Listening now...
@nancyrost Feb 13
I'm having trouble streaming or downloading your songs too.
@hoopshank Feb 13
Glad to see you're back again. Came by for a listen but, for some reason, couldn't get your songs to play this evening. I will try again another day.
@jamkar Feb 12
Hey thanks for the comments, and busting my zong kind sir!
@mikedebenham Feb 7
Dibs on Trumpet Farts as a band name. Wait, what's the opposite of dibs?
@mschizzle Feb 6
thanks so much for your comments on my first two song, Phil! I thought it was funny that you called my uke song a "little romantic fantasy" because I didn't make up anything in the lyrics. I think I know what you meant, though, as it's hard to believe this reat guy is in my life right now. thanks again

Hey Phil, what a pleasure to have your detailed and enthusiastic ears around and about again this year. Per usual, the enthusiasm is mutual. Is this the year I get it together sufficiently to suggest a collaboration of some sort?
@tjod Feb 4
You inspired me... I did dig out the dulcimer for a song!
@isaacq Feb 3
so let's talk turkey here Phil. what kind of collab are you thinking? what elements of Phildom and iqdom are we looking to tap into? who starts, and with what? maybe drop me an email??
@shadywilbury Feb 2
Very sorry, Phil. Can't have been looking that hard.
@timothybracken Feb 2
@isaacq Feb 1
i think that idea sounds marvy. phisaac quarman FTW! (wait a sec, doesn't every song open new neural pathways?)
@jinx Jan 31
PHIL you're back! Yay!
@mikedebenham Jan 30
Nice pic, but come on. Tuning your guitar? What is this, the opera?
@nancyrost Jan 30
Lyrics you will get!
@drewb92 Jan 29
Miiiiiister Norman! Looking forward to hearing this year’s creations!
@tiedyehero Jan 29
Your tag idea is rad, social media as a songwriting tool, very 2014. I've enjoyed your music over the years, and I look forward to hearing more.
@sacraficialglam Jan 28
Look forward to making a multi-track masterpiece this year only to hear you make a better masterpiece with two or three. Cannot wait to be amazed.
@brownium Jan 26
Sally My Love is one of the top favorites around my house. I have to bribe my kids with candy to get them to say that they like my music better.
@ianuarius Jan 25
Hello there! I though I tried making some new friends here. I don't believe we've met previously. GLHF!

You sure about that second cup of coffee? The shirt's nice, though.

Greetings Mr Norman, I trust you are all fine and dandy. I may well pass something at you, although please feel free to reciprocate (ooo....big fancy word).
