Class of 2008!

* pages through the yearbook *

Aww! Look how little and cute we all were!

I'm out of practice but, been listening to Bruce Hornsby and he makes this "songwriting" thing look pretty easy.

In other news, @humblecomposer and I are about 3/4 of the way through arranging and sequencing Gerry Rafferty's "Baker Street" for string quartet, and it's freaking awesome.

    Thanks for the comment on Hollow. The challenge was truly a delight (and I enjoyed hearing the other Arkham songs).

    Never have terrible rites been more fun!

  • @wazylizard Mar 2

    Thanks for your comment on Burning Material - my friend asked me for some guitar loops, which I sent him this a couple of weeks ago (we live in different countries), and it stalled. Turned out that 4 hours before the cutoff I found time and inspiration to record bass, another layer of guitar, and double the length of some old unused lyrics. That is a pleasant side effect of FAWM I suppose!
    I see that you have some songs without music, we should try to collaborate [next year]. Getting into my mind into a music spirit was great, but I've found it even more enjoyable to produce songs with more than brain!

  • @jamkar  Mar 1

    Thank you! You know I had never done this kind of challenge before, and it was loads of fun.

  • @adamhope  Mar 1

    Thank you so much for your comments. Really appreciate it

  • @rainchaser  Mar 1

    Thank you for the kind comment on, "What Do I Say?. I really appreciate it!

  • @hoppiern  Feb 28

    Thanks so much for your kind comments on my "Traumatized" song. really appreciate you listening on this FAWM crunch day! πŸ˜€

  • @everettcinaed Feb 28

    Ah, I've checked it with various browsers, and it's played fine in all (except one that complained about Java). I do not know what the problem might be...

  • @cherok40  Feb 24

    Thank you for your welcome message, for listening and for your kind comment. Much appreciated!

  • @matthew62  Feb 24

    Thanks for the listen and comments regarding I Walk In Circles. Did you go to your basement and record your dark minimalist track yet?

  • @heuristicsinc  Feb 22

    Thanks on New Moon... When I "finished" I thought I should really be doing more, it feels to me that the last sound should continue with another section. Sounds like you might agree πŸ˜€

  • @ohwell123 Feb 22

    Thank you very much for listening and commenting on my song Improvisation. I greatly appreciate your comment!

  • @cherok40  Feb 21

    Thanks a lot for listening to my 10x10. Much appreciated!

  • @moonraccoon  Feb 21

    LOL - Since the coming of TVs with active mics and cameras, I've been saying that Orwell will soon be read as documentary πŸ˜‰

    JMS' run on the Fantastic Four comic was strong, and he was a co-creator with the Wachowskis of the amazing (and criminally cancelled b/c too expensive) Sense8 for Netflix. But really, he has one heckuva CV.

  • @vomvorton  Feb 21

    "Do I detect the delicate flip of an autotune modifying the vocal syllables?"

    You do not! I only autotune in desperation, and have not used it on anything this FAWM. Maybe some reverb / delay weirdness that you're detecting? I think I sometimes go overboard on FX when trying to get other people's vocals to fit into my mixes.

  • @moonraccoon  Feb 21

    Thank you for your appreciation of Tailed, part of the 10x10. What's funny is that I rewrote all of the lyrics to the 10x10 microsongs, to diverge from the cut-up method, and make them more intelligible. You were right, there was more to the Tailed tale πŸ˜€

  • @zecoop  Feb 21

    P.S. what's the status of Baker Street? inquiring minds, etc....

  • @zecoop  Feb 21

    If you love CP then you are good in my book... (ok, you were already good in my book) πŸ˜€
    I grew up going to Cedar Point and in recent years, my son worked there (3 years) and he got my nephews and nieces to work there. They all love it too. My younger brother @guatecoop lives about 20 minutes from it.

  • @izaakalexander  Feb 14

    Hey, can I listen to (or better yet, have a peek at) your quartet of Baker Street?? I teach beginner strings so it's something I could read through--- it would be fun for me and I could clue you into anything I came across that might be awkward before you put it in front of professionals. Best of luck with your FAWM, I love what I've listened too so far!

  • @phoenixash Feb 7

    Wow, troublesome, but I'll get cracking and make you proud kkkk

  • @thelostcartographer  Feb 7

    Thanks for the kind words! Great prompt!

  • @phoenixash Feb 6

    Hey, I meant pick a card, please! Thank you for clarifying

  • @cnidaria  Feb 6

    I do love me some terrible rites!

    Thanks for the encounter. I'm looking forward to bringing into musical existence.

  • @pumpkinhead  Feb 4

    I would so love to have a download of that Tribute song so that I can listen to it while walking the depressing streets of MalmΓΆ.

  • @timfatchen  Feb 3

    Huphuphup...get something on the board!!

  • @mikegtz  Feb 3

    Heya Elaine, good to see you and good to see you out there a little while back. Looking forward to your music and link the Baker Street adaptation when you are done.

  • @timfatchen  Feb 2

    Elaine! Thanks so much for those prompts re the Innsmouth stuff. it is indeed lovely music and at least it's generated some coffee money over the years! I'll take up your suggestion.

  • @thelostcartographer  Feb 1

    Thanks for the Lovecraftian prompt - should be great inspiration!

  • @mikedebenham  Feb 1

    Great to see you back, Elaine.

  • @rkeeling75 Feb 1

    Have a great month. I really look forward to your random character (HPL) inspiration.

  • @nuj4x Jan 25

  • @humblecomposer  Jan 23

    Wooo Feb is nigh!

  • @toms  Jan 19

    Of course we're doing a track this year. That was self evident. A logically necessary truth. A fact written into the fabric of the universe the moment it was born. So, yeah! πŸ˜€

  • @zecoop  Jan 19

    Just saying that Karl Harrison recorded vocals on his iphone in a back alley in Thailand and it sounded amazing when I produced it πŸ˜€

  • @zecoop  Jan 19

    Yea, no pressure... I end up with tons of collaborations, but if it can happen that would be great. No worries. πŸ˜€

  • @timfatchen  Jan 19

    Out of practice? Join the club. Anyway, isn't that what gigs/recording studios/Fawm are for? 😁

  • @zecoop  Jan 18

    Bwahhhhahahahahaha...... Now I'll laugh every time I hear that song. The Song of DOOOOOOM. 😁 I think we need Sapient to write a sequel called Baker Street Doom

  • @swampjaw  Jan 17

    Hey -- good to see you here! I say we do a few Legislayer tunes.

  • @scottlake  Jan 17

    Dang! We need more musicians in office!

  • @zecoop  Jan 17

    Dang.... Make sure I hear how this comes out! I grew up with that song on AM radio. Love it so much. πŸ˜€

  • @zecoop  Jan 17

    I just would want to be the person who gets to play the big Dooooooooooooooo that goes down after each phrase so memorably on Baker Street. 😁

  • @scottlake  Jan 17

    Hey this time last year you were running for office. So?

  • @nancyrost  Jan 15

    So nice to see you here!

  • @autoclamp  Jan 14

    Elaine!

    (The Smithereens respond in angelic harmony) Elaine!

  • @rickatfulcrum Jan 13

    Yes. Yes, we are going to work together.

    I hope you and @toms outdo Shell Game this year too.

  • @toms  Jan 13

    Hey, you awesome person! πŸ˜€
