Welcome 2 The Jelly Factory! Thanks 4 stopping by. This will be my 11th time participating in FAWM. I'm excited and looking forward to the experience. Have fun, everyone!
R U a spoken word artist here? Hit me up and let's collaborate. I tend 2 use spoken word for pieces I call Poetry Night at the Jelly Factory.
Due to a recent family member passing, I am putting FAWM on hold for a short while.
|#1||All That Eye Have Seen||
|#3||Dear Ms. Nelson||
Wow thanks for your nice words also on all systems down. I will upload that one in a couple days I ran out of time
Also ps I got my links issue sorted!
wow thanks so much for the nice words on Fan Girls !! i have NOT quite figured out FAWM website - any tips on getting soundcloud links to work in here would be appreciated. i tried adding one to the Make Believe song but it's not working ... ?!
Thank you for your comments on "The Great Divide." As a human, I am compelled to explore the duality of life and the exploration of choices. As a poet, I struggle to trap the dichotomy in words. We all face demons, and sometimes we forget there are also angels here to help (in the guise of friends and others who share light in a dark world). Thank you for sharing light.
Craig. Are you up for a smooth funky number?
I’ve got the music almost done. It’s pretty simple and I think it will fit you like a glove.
Hope everything is as good as it can be with you and yours.
Oh, and it has around 200ms of attack time.
Regarding "Element of Surprise", the whistle synth is a simple mono synth based off of a triangle wave, low-passed at around 2kHz, and given some glide between notes. Play it in the high registers for a whistle sound. In my use case, I added some simple delay for stereo width.
Thank you so much Craig for your kind comment.
Thanks for the comment, I appreciate it.
Thank you for listening. Much appreciated!
I'm sorry to hear about your loss!
Thanks for checking out Stars Underfoot! I'm sorry for your loss. 😞
Thx for your comment. Its very tough for families! I certainly have compassion on this topic, glad it came across.
I was suppose to send you a cassette tape tomorrow (Monday).
Shall I assume you are not doing the 4 track challenge?
Really cool stuff you got going on here Jelly Factory I'm glad you hit up my page so that I could listen to your stuff 😀
Keep up the great work. Love your genre.
Thanks for your comments on "Whisper of You," let me know if you have any ideas for music. 😀
...and I'm sorry to hear about your loss
Sending you love and strength.
So sorry to hear of your loss Craig. You and your family are in my thoughts.
My condolences to you and your family.
Thanks so much for giving our tune a listen and for the kind praise! Hope you're having the FAWM you want to have. 😀
Thanks for the well wishes! 😁 It's nothing serious and I'm getting better, but now the rest of the family is getting sick so I need to help them out 😝 I'll figure out how to get that recording light on somehow, and if I don't I can still listen and comment.
Good to see you. I’m having fun with Band-in-a-Box because I don’t have/play all the instruments they offer. Check them out www.pgmusic.com for demo videos.
Thanks for the comment on '24 Hours to Midnight'!
Wow, thanks so much for the listen on Go Free. I started out the night with just a hint of a song idea and it grew. I really appreciate your comments. Thank you.
It really feels that way. I don't feel as connected with FAWM this year. The willingness is there, but I'm feeling like I'm on a bit of a plateau and I'm really having some problems with how my voice sounds, but close to acceptance with that anyhow!
Man I'm sorry to hear about your folks. I've got you and your loved ones in my prayers.
Hey thanks for taking a listen to Shirt & Tie. I'm pretty busy outside of FAWM (ironically writing songs that I can't post here), so I'm a little more absent.
I still want to try and get a collab in though when I have something I'll send it to you if you want to do that.
Jelly man in the house! Hi Craig. Glad you're back.
Thanks for the note. Happy FAWMing to you, too!
Craig we both started FAWM the same year, 2010! Have a good one...
Thanks for commenting on Sunny Day. FAWM is a fun time for me, though trying to convince my wife we need to stay home so I can write is becoming a hard sell.
WOW, thank you so much for your fab comment on "Burn the town down". I blush here. Thank you
Hi Craig, I hope all is well. I'm looking forward to more Jelly Factory output, especially with purple glow!
Welcome back my friend!
"in a particular way," lolol I may have to use that in one of the lines 😁 😁 😁
Alright then...I will come up with something probably tomorrow and send it off. This should be good. It’s a promising lineup on this tape!
We will collab sometime during FAWM! I just need to get through this weekend... yikes! LOL
Thank you! I appreciated your encouraging comment and happy FAWMING to you!!
As a kid, I used to say "Giv'me a piece a bread and Jam It," but I secretly preferred "Jelly." Still, do... Old friend,
No, I have a dress rehearsal for my play most of the evening... I'll be getting in sometime after 10 my time (11 EST)
Up and running at the Jelly Factory!
I absolutely want to work with you on your idea! The Bigfoot album is my overarching project, but what fun would FAWM be without some awesome side-excursions with my FAWM-friends too?
Alright, man, what kind of vibe do you want on the 4track tape? I can go in lots of directions. Let me know what would work.
Oh yeah, I do live in Canada haha, Ontario specifically. It's been colder than a mug out here lately though so I definitely am missing the states haha.
Fo sho, I really am hoping to stick around this time and not get deathly sick again. Here's to hoping and praying!!
Ayyyyyyyyyyyy, Cannot WAIT to hear what comes from you this year! ^___^
CTS.. so happy to have you back.... missing the jelly... 😀 bring it!
Hello sir! Our collaborative zombie song is still a favorite of mine, as are your tracks generally - I hope to hear a lot from you this year!
Hello, and hello again!
Here we all are, for one more round.
Hello, and hello again!
Aww man how do you get pix in these posts!?
Yes! First week is going to be tough but after that, I will take you up on your kind invitation sir!
Yes! Let’s give it a go! Something Steveland Morris might offer up?
Hi, happy fawming
I'm baking those biscuits quick, call 'em bisquick....and I'm gonna need the jelly. Mad jelly. Jelly belly. Let's do it!
Hello Craig, thank you for your kind note. Yes it will be wonderful to catch up on the collaborations we had in mind. I don't believe I heard your song. Please let me know of the link if you have it uploaded or let me hear it. I'm always very keen to hear your amazing songs.
Have a great time.
As soon as I saw 'Hashtag Heroes', I thought that's too good for someone not to already be using it as a band name.
Hi Craig. I'm joining John Staples's sentiment.
Hey Craig! How ya doing?
Eeeeeevenin'! Hope you have the funnest time!
Hi! I hope you are all good. Yeah I will do some fawm just not as much as without traveling:) : Happy FAWM to ya.
Here's hoping Vegas is pumping you up for February! it's darn near jelly time, my friend!
Hey there!! What’s your focus this year? It was Prince last year, right? Or are years blurring? You always have a focus that I couldn’t do or wouldn’t think of. I love it!
Jelly cat, Jelly cat
What are they feeding you?
Have a good un
Hey Craig! The answer is YES! 😀
Ready! I hope your factory is well stocked for 2019!
Let’s do this! Looking forward to your music!
I'm counting on it bro'. I'm looking forward to some fine jelly from you and creating some too. 😀
Heya, Craig. Good to see you around.
Joyous picture. Lalalalaaaaah...!
What's up man!! Welcome back!!
When FAWM begins
With you, my friend!
Almost time Craig! Let’s FAWM!
Hey Craig — looking forward to the insanity
Dude! Bro'! My Man! How ya doin'? Ready to tear the roof off the sucker?
Here's to feeling the groove of the music in FAWM this year! Cheers!
Hi, Craig! Looking forward to hearing many great cts tunes during FAWM 2019!!! 😀 G'luck!!!
Hi Craig! 😀
I'm really hoping we get chance to work together this year!
😀 Maybe at Fawmstock? I aim to make it out there in July!
D'oh! I broke my delicious youtube funk links! Let me try that again:
Orgone - "Duck and Cover"
The Fatback Band - "Mr. Bassman"
The tastiest one IMO:
Orgone - "Don't Stop"
Am once again wild with expectation for some JELLY!!
Hoping to hear some delish music friend!
Let the bass roar and smooth it with your voice.
We've missed these last few times. Not this time, my friend.
Have a great February!!!!!!
