Artist Bio

JAN. 18, 2018

Hello, dear fellow FAWMers! I'm sad to say that I won't be able to do any songwriting this year. I've expressed doubt about that in past years but was able to do stuff anyway. This year there are certain reasons I know for sure that I won't be able to. I MIGHT be able to comment a tiny bit, we'll see.

Here's a blog post just in case you're curious about the reasons why. I didn't write it here so as to not clutter my profile. http://danieljunkim.com/good-luck-to-...

GOOD LUCK, guys!! The world is hurting and needs your art. My thoughts and love go with you as always.

ATTN: Collaborators who wrote music for "The Road is So Long" last year: @metalfoot, @siebass, @debs, @robinh, @wickedmessenger1, @candle, @ductapeguy, @petemurphy, @dudachris

If you still have your demos, would you be interested in allowing your demo to go on a free Bandcamp compilation? I don't want to sell it or anything like that. I don't even want the songs be polished, and I certainly don't want you to spend time on it - the demo versions are wonderful and more than suffice for me. I prefer them as they are. Basically, I just thought what happened with the multiple versions of the song was super cool and I wanted to document it for memory - as in, "Hey, everyone, remember when this happened during FAWM 2017?!"

Lemme know if you'd be ok with something like this. Bandcamp's the first thing I thought of but it doesn't have to be on Bandcamp. It could be any online mp3 hosting place that's publicly accessible so if you have other ideas, let me know! (And plz feel free to email me your thoughts privately - popmythologist@gmail.com )

    Thanks for the comments Daniel. Hope you're okay.

  • @nuj4x Feb 16

    I love your name dude lol pop mythology, that’s amazing!

  • @debs  Feb 12

    Hi Daniel! I'm so sorry that I'm late with this - I only started FAWMing this weekend. I'm absolutely okay if you'd like to use the demo in that way, though some day I might want to record it a little better. πŸ˜€

  • @elesimo  Feb 11

    Daniel, thanks for taking the time to listen and comment on my songs! <3

    I also really enjoyed your paradoxical meta song about not being able to FAWM. It does suck that you can't participate, it doesn't feel the same without you around! Take care, sending you all my love!

  • @siebass  Feb 9

    Thanks for checking out the bathroom song, Daniel. I thought you might enjoy it. You might also get a kick out of my song about having too many samples (FROM MARS); inspired by getting sample packs with thousands of samples. I saw your post about wanting some uplifting songs, I'll try to oblige! Hope things are going better today than when you posted earlier.

  • @caterwauler Feb 9

    Thanks a lot for taking the time to listen and comment. I don't mind being compared to Enya, no worries. I truly appreciate that you listened ; you could compare me to anything/anyone, I would still appreciate.
    Sending you all the best vibes I have. Greetings and purrs from Mantra.
    Love and hugs.

  • @dragondreams  Feb 9

    You are very lovely and very kind, Daniel. 😊
    You are often in my thoughts and I'm beaming healing at you.

  • @zecoop  Feb 9

    Thank you as always for taking time out of your busy busy life to listen to my music. It is so appreciated and really made my day (I'll email you about my day). You are awesome

  • @metalfoot  Feb 8

    Thanks SO MUCH for bothering to listen to my 10in10. It's a silly thing to do but once I knew today was going to be one of my patented Bad Health Days, I thought I might as well make it work for FAWM purposes. πŸ˜€

  • @jamkar  Feb 7

    Daniel you will certainly be missed here. My wish is for you to regain much needed energy, at the right time, so that one day we can see you here again. Peace my brother.

  • @bithprod Feb 7

    Great to hear from you, Daniel!

  • @caterwauler Feb 3

    Hi Daniel, thank you for stopping by.
    You know what I say about my songs : if you've heard one, you've heard them all. Just don't worry about them and put your energy where it's needed.
    Take care. Love & hugs.

  • @boyatheart  Feb 3

    Best wishes Daniel.

  • @jorh Feb 3

    Sorry to hear your not around this year! Enjoyed your lyrics last year and as a fawmling your comments were really encouraging

  • @bhaile  Feb 2

    Hi! Good to see you are around anyway! You’ll be missed.

  • @candle Feb 1

    I will miss your lyrics, my friend. And yes, of course - use my Road version for your compilation. I will dig it up & send it to you soon. Take care &…

    See You In The Shadows…

  • @leslie Feb 1

    I know! I'm sorry I couldn't make that work. Next time I'm in Chicago! We'll make it happen.

  • @errol Jan 31

    Cream doesn't affect me as much. So I'll eat ice cream. 😁

  • @odilongreen  Jan 31

    Good luck this FAWM! Hope all is well, and that you'll be lyric'ing prolifically...

  • @siebass  Jan 30

    No problem, Daniel. I sent you an email with those mp3s. I hope you feel better and up for more FAWM than you expect this year!

  • @petra777  Jan 30

    *waves* Sorry you may not be working on anything this year. But hope you can be around as much as you can. Take care of yourself...

  • @karlsburg25  Jan 29

    Daniel, i just read you blog and may I say very well expressed. I understand your difficulty with fully participating but from my point of view its just nice to see you back. Each year brings something different and you never know what you may end up doing this month. Take care bud

  • @timfatchen  Jan 28

    Daniel, I know for all my travails (which are many and serious) you've got it far worse. We'll both keep plodding on in hope, is that a deal?

  • @tsunamidaily Jan 28

    best of luck in the coming month!

  • @sherrycanary  Jan 26

  • @acousticmaddie  Jan 23

    hi Mate! I wish you a happy fawm/M

  • @js6  Jan 23

    Well, now you have to write lyrics this year so I can participate πŸ˜‰

  • @johncrossman  Jan 23

    Just stopping by to say hello and wish good things your way. πŸ˜€

  • @zecoop  Jan 23

    Daniel... πŸ˜€
    Thanks for the big write up, it sounds like good things are happening. Congrats on the job and I completely understand that you have to choose since things in your life. You've given a lifetime to FAWM in a short time so anything you do is very appreciated. Glad I can still touch base with you here and there on the internet. Stay in touch

  • @metalfoot  Jan 22

    http://bythefont.com/alex/fawm2017/me... -- I apologize but I don't seem to have the original recording file anywhere, just the final 128k MP3.

  • @elesimo  Jan 22

    Daniel, thanks for stopping by and leaving a message! This FAWM will not be the same without you, but I think you're right in focusing on your health first. Let me know if there's anything I can do to help, and take care! <3

  • @tesla3090  Jan 22

    Glad to hear you'll at least be around a bit! FAWM wouldn't be the same without you.

  • @js6  Jan 21

    Ah, nice to hear from you Daniel!
    (and reading your idea about the 'The Road is So Long' collaboration it makes me sad that I didn't have the time to make my own demo for it πŸ˜€ )
    I hope you have a great February πŸ˜€

  • @metalfoot  Jan 21

    Daniel, you certainly have my permission. πŸ˜€

  • @ericdistad  Jan 21

    We are sending all the prayers/good vibes we can muster your way as you continue on your road! We hope you are feeling well enough to stop in and hang out a bit this month (but no worries if you don't - manage your "spoons" toward your health first! )

  • @chandra83  Jan 21
