Influences: Basically anything making sound now. But in high school it went Incubus to the Mars Volta to Tom Waits, and pretty much the floodgates opened.
2nd FAWM, excited to be back!
Looking to tackle it differently this year, more of a quality over quantity route. So while I try to get 4-5 more complete songs done this month, I'm looking to round out the rest of the goal with collabs, song challenges, and whatever randomness comes. So if you're looking to collab, let's kick around some ideas!
|#1||High school Sweethearts and Tree Bark||
|#3||The Next Chapter (Collab) @guatecoop||
|#5||Voices That Try @unkept||
|#7||Freak Accidents When Monetized @iwilleatyou||
|#8||Love Your Pet (Feb. 20 Love Your Pet Day) @ihelen||
Whoa, cantaloupe, really? Jack is odd. Greetings to him, by the way.
If you can't have tuna or chicken I can lend you one of my toy mice.
I did not know that. But now I know. Hip-hopera! 😀
" But I really appreciate hearing about people who see a bug and consider it as more than a pest. So thanks for your compassion!"
Your post is awesome. We'd be here until next FAWM discussing because as you said it's a topic one can go on and on about. My sister, brother and law and I are bug fanatics. A human with just a pinch of certain bug traits would bring them to super human level.
Maow meh mrrr aow.
[I like you, human. I'll share my tuna-chicken food with you.]
Hey man, thanks for listening to my songs! I think the squeak you're hearing on "Words Are Stupid" is my fingers moving on the bass strings. I like the attack of fat, round wounds strings even tho they make my fingers bleed. My fav squeak tho is John Bonham's kick pedal that can be heard on many songs, most famously "Since I've Been Loving You ". Funny that I couldn't hear that until CD's! Or maybe it's cuz I was really high all the time before. 😀
Oh wow you are a bee keeper? Mead anyone? Bees amaze me. They build perfect hexagons and require no schooling, no tools. And humans are "smart".....fah! I like what one bee keeper explained (she lives in Canada IIRC)...the hive is the body, the bees the spirit/soul of the hive.
I upload them to the FAWM server and insert the link. I have tried with other links and they only showed the link, so I think it has something to do with having a direct link to the picture, and the picture must be downloadable. 😀
Thanks for all the listens!! I am so far behind in mine.
Definitely an honor to collab with you. Glad you dig!
BOOM. That shit was sooo much fun.
thank you for your thoughtful listening and your kind comments!
Thank you for your kind comments on Hazel eyes and Vommit song and Stab!.
Thank you for all that praise - you sure know how to spread good vibes! I wrote somewhere that I'm not doing any more stuff this year, but look what happened last time. If I ever do a collab *for real*, I'd definitely have to take you up on your generous offer. Now what's this about a collab between you and @iwilleatyou - now THAT is the next biggest thing to happen around here! 😀
Well alrighty then! I'll get to the mixing and stirring so we can pour this fermentation.
Ok, all i have left to do is mix the song but before I do I'll be sending you an email link to let you listen to what I did. If you like it I'll get to the mixing.
Update: email sent
Aww you're so sweet! Hope you can come see us play live in Tokyo someday. Or we can travel to play in your hood! And also glad we could harness the magic potential of the SK-5. It's sort of a mythical synth being.
I put on my pink outfit just for you 😉
Hah, I just got the pun in your image
Well whatever you did with what you got=AWESOME. I'll see what I can add to it. I'll be on my way shortly.
Haha maybe I should let the dog have her own song with claw-percussion. The bit about Elliott Smith? Wow. Big thanks for that. He was so fantastic. <3 So glad that the music lives on!
Excellent!! Got the files sir! So far I listened to the files alone to see that they play ok etc. and all is good. I have to say though, I have no idea what pedals you are using on your guitar but that shit sounds freakin SICK. I'm enjoying it on it's own. I used to have about 80 pedals..I love that shit. And your vocals on their own are fine! So don't sweat it! I'm going to reciprocate a bit here, head off to work and get to work on this tonight. May the force be with you.
Sweet! Can't wait to hear you do your THANG!
Thanks so much for your comments. I would LOVE to make that music video. 80s commercials vhs vibes but then me going in and calling out all the sexist bull$It and gender stereotyping. Unfortunately I don’t have video skills. 😀
Hey!! Thank you! I had a blast last year, and am so excited to get this round goin. Bouncing back from losing my voice to the flu but things are finally sounding better. Happy FAWMing!! 🖤🤗
I should have a song ready by tomorrow or saturday. Just send the file to the email linked above?
Hey, Pinky! Glad you're back for some more FAWMing! All the best to you.
Always love the imagery in your songs. Not long ago I found a musician, Terry Allen - country kind of stuff - and well, his songwriting is just brilliant, some of your lines make me think of him. Thought you might like it too. "Amarillo Highway", "Border Palace", and "The Radio and Real Life" are some of my faves.
You got it, Dude! As for the bandcamp, it's still there figuring itself out. You let me know if you want to listen to any of that old stuff though because you're VIP. 😀
Punk it is! The idea of atrocious dueling solos sounds great. Here's the thing, I have no internet at home so going back and forth for the solos would be a bit much for me since i have to go to a WiFi location. SO....how about I get the song going, send you the file and you can let me know if you want any changes etc.-basically until we can get something that you like to sing. Once we get that, you solo over it as many times as you like and send me those files along with the vocals. Then I'll do several solos and piece all of the shit to make a big wall of rubbish chaotic noise. Does that work?
Ahh...I get it....so kind of like those who want to be the "Hollywood Cool Guy" even if it means smashing their balls in with a hammer. Attention whores. That's funny. Ok, let's collab. If it's cool with you, you write the lyrics and sing and i can write the music? Just tell me what style of music you want me to write.
HAHA...i just realized now your logo. That's awesome. At first I was like, "E"?? What does the letter E have to do with the name Pinky. Clever. You know you have to get someone else to have a red letter "E" and call themself "Ready". Ready and Pinky duet.
Alright Pinky, I sent you an email of my weird idea... hope you like it!
Coffee robots are the way of the future, but sadly only in our imagination.
Thanks for your comments and encouragement!
I have a strange idea for a song, but I have to get going for something. When I get back, I'll try to email you what I'm thinking! In the meantime, if you have any scraps like last year, I can work with those too!
Thanks for checking out my new songs!
So, collab? 😁
Thanks for such a positive comment!! 😀
thanks pinky... have a brilliant fawm
Yo Pinky!! Good to see you here again. And so cool you remember those 4 songs I did at the end last year, ha! Yeah, that's kinda the spark for trying to stitch something even bigger together this time...we'll see though, high chance of falling directly on my face with it....
Welcome back my friend!! Can't wait to check out your stuff this year. 😀
Thanks for the feedback on my songs Pinky! Cant wait to hear more from you as well. 😀
Definitely go for it!
Hey, thanks! Nope, no takers on vocals yet. Some questions like yours though...this is how it usually happens. People end up singing on most each year.
Thanks! Looking forward to your stuff too
Awww welcome back I missed you xx
That new logo is fantastic!
Thank you! A happy and productive 2nd FAWM to you!
I've got a rigged up sound booth now, so maybe I'll go a little crazier with the vocals! 😁 I'm hosting one of the super skirmishes on Friday, at 11pm EST if you want to join in on it.
Welcome back dude!! Quite a few new studio additions to play with... we'll see! Have fun!!!
😀 Hi Pinky.
I hope you are warmed up! 😁
