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!

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.

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.

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...

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.

Dibs on Trumpet Farts as a band name. Wait, what's the opposite of dibs?

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?

You inspired me... I did dig out the dulcimer for a song!

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.

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.

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).
