    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...

  • @hamiltonpoolhall  Feb 16

    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.

  • @oldlostjohn  Feb 2016

    Thanks for the comments on "...Back to the Zoo". I think you're right about the last stanza, constructive suggestions always appreciated.

  • @billwhite51 Feb 2016

    Hi Phil, Glad you found the harmonica titties ditty. People have been avoiding that one for some reason. Thanks for listening and commenting.

  • @oddbod  Feb 2016

    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

  • @oldlostjohn  Feb 2016

    Happy FAWM, Phil! I'll keep my ears on you.

  • @jeffdesantis  Feb 2016

    Looking forward as always to hearing your stuff.

  • @aaronnathans Feb 2016

    Good luck!

  • @hamiltonpoolhall  Jan 2016

    Hi Phil! So looking forward to hearing your writing again this year.

  • @autoclamp  Jan 2016

    (Grabs tissue box.) All right, HIT ME.

  • @mikegtz  Jan 2016

    Hi Phil and welcome once again.

  • @mikedebenham  Jan 2016

    Dónde está el supermercado, Phil. From the bottom of my heart.

  • @marvsmooth  Jan 2016

    Have a great FAWM Phil

  • @joshbelville  Jan 2016

    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."

  • @scottmcb  Jan 2016

    We'll see if we can fire up the Twin Quasars machine

  • @cowex  Jan 2016

    Me too. But how? Unless you want sparse mopey robots you might have to make the first demo

  • @nancyrost  Jan 2016

    Looking forward to fawming with you!

  • @oddbod  Jan 2016

    Hey Phil,
    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.

  • @cowex  Jan 2016

    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?
