Influences: Places I’ve been and sights I have seen. But probably mainly things I have imagined.
It is the year 2020. This is my 5th fawm. I am old and withered now but don’t think that means I have learnt anything or improved my singing/guitar skills since last Fawm k? I ain’t done shit, my bad. Still totally excited at the prospect of writing, playing, listening and hopefully collaborating again!
I am currently sat in the Dr’s surgery cos there’s something wrong with my neck/throat that I am hoping will feck off before Feb. Hoping I have more than two weeks to live cos I have LOTS of ideas for songs I wanna do! WATCH THIS SPACE!
UPDATE: the doc said I have plenty of life left in me and I feel totally fine now so no further sympathy is warranted, thank you! <3
Important info: My partner @adforperu is a veteran (fawm, not war), please check out his musical ruminations! He is HIGHLY skilled with music but ENTIRELY useless at anything practical. Don’t ask him to put you up a shelf, your house will blow up and he’ll probably drill through your cat.
@iwilleatyou is some maniac I met on Fawm a few years ago and we have since started a transatlantic band (Eye will eat U). We haven’t hit the big time yet (he is quite lazy and low-skilled) but we probably definitely will soon so watch this space and check out his mania before we both get far too busy for this shit ‘cos we’re on the road with Taylor Swift.
Day 1: Just returned from a snack to my “studio” to this little fluffbag in my seat. Hairiest nuisance ever.
END OF FAWM UPDATE DAY 27:
IF I MAY PLEASE GET EMOTIONAL FOR A MINUTE COS AM JUST ABOUT DONE. I’m genuinely sad as I suspect a lot of us are! Can’t say how much I’m going to miss making music every single day (and making up fake band names in the fake band name thread. I will miss Kevin SO much) and listening and commenting to new stuff round the clock and wondering who the fuck @nicholascage really is! My favourite fawm ever likely cos I made the conscious effort to NOT get down on myself. Thank you @evinwolverton for starting the no apologies, no excuses thread, that shit really worked man! Special thanks to everyone who made music for my ears, espesh my collaborators of course @oddbod @gslade @degausser @srcoops @jorh @lowestbitter <SPOILER ALERT> @adforperu @dragondreams 😝 and espesh espesh @iwilleatyou for giving me endless ridiculous as fuck inspo and the opportunity to do stuff I didn’t known I could. Gahhhhh I miss you all already, same time next year, right??

Thx for the comments on "Pacific Breeze"...so kind.
PS...My links in soundcloud have been broken since I reposted a song
and i cant seems to fix it!!
It's a potential a song in the making here.."Broken Links"
There must be some triggers that are set up for the NSFW, I only tagged one myself, the others did themselves.
Maybe next year a chorus of nothing but fugs or fuggits.
I mean who else is worthy of paying attention to?!? 😉
LOLOL..... I was just following your "N" and didn't pay attention to anything above. I was ONLY PAYING ATTENTION TO YOU.
I agree. I hate my music too. Which is why you are the perfect vocalist.
Thanks for the comment on my song Jealousy
Shit. You still got three tracks I never hit up. My bad
*bangs head with hammer as pennetence..pennancents..pinnaclents..shit..must have hit too hard*
Got your message - thanks!! E-mailed back with top secret info. 😉
Congrats on the massive win. 😀
Blimey 29 songs in total - you have been busy.
jusqu'à l'année prochaine
That was Finnish, the world's coolest but possibly least useful language. Congratulations on fourt-- wait, what? 29! Nice one, Julie. I'll be back to poke around!
No worries!! And why are you still up?!?? 😉
Thank you so much for being a part of my dad's FAWM (@srcoops)... Let me know if it would be ok to have your song on his Bandcamp compilation album. If it is ok and you are able, please feel free to send me the WAV version to zecoop at yahoo dot com. Also let me know what info you would like to be included on Bandcamp. Thank you once again!!! 😀
Are you a Kubrick fan in general? Eyes Wide Shut!
Here's to a speedy recovery from the collective FAWM hangover
Re: Wife not dead - Yeah I'm pretty happy about that too. Lol I need to listen to your last three...and I guess read the liner notes
Thanks so much!!!
For helping me with the use of coops drum tracks...
Wow I would have never figured that one out...it’s all sooo new to me
And I don’t really have any one to help ...so woo hoo to you!!!!
Lol! I’d love to collaborate with you!! Here’s my email: firstname.lastname@example.org, ❤️❤️❤️
Cheers.... I often do this... lastminute.com or something
Must be time for a stiff drink and a bit of a lie down... 😉
Meh, I never even try to get to 50 songs.
I think 32 was my high point and I average around 20 for the whole summer.
No one's gonna care if you don't make it to 50. 😀
Hey, there's been some hilarious and inspiring tunes on your page this February!!
I'm assuming that you participate in 50/90?
If so, I'll see you there!!
If you do not participate in 50/90, it's time to sign up!!
Lol peer pressure for the win. I mean you could just sing "I'm doing this to get to 28" acapella a couple of times and have done. At least then you can stay in bed 😋
I'm not finished yet though...still working on another 4 tunes... 😁
Aren't you tempted to go one more for the double win?
Let's see whether the FGTH sound suits me 😂
Piano man... Yes, after changing the part into waltz time (sort of) it now sounds a bit like it. That means I have to do something more today. Any suggestions what to copy next? 😁
Hi, I'm excited that you liked my yoga piece so much! I was going to send some new age music samples to someone for a project, and this was just going to be a practice run, but based on the surprisingly positive feedback, I'm gonna include it in my submission. Thanks for the support!
Hee hee. I am blasting it myself!! I think Jesus said play the music loud to wake up the world 😉 Ah thanks for the listen. She is so special and doesn't think she is any good. She literally wrote that song (as i think you know i not the gospel type) and when she sand it i thought oh lord no. But shag me sideways i enjoyed bringing it to a sister act type concluson. xx
We absolutely have to do a collab piece next year! 😎
Ha ha, that's so funny! Sorry! (not sorry!) 😉
A damned excellent job you did too!
You mean Ad referenced tea? 😉
If by half a liver you mean because I like to drink than all I can say is *burp*.
Awww shucks. I think you're pretty special too. 😘
Yes. I have a heart. And a liver too.
Fucking twatcows I got it wrong? I shall never forgive my shitty self.
aaw thanks Julie! Now I feel bad that I said I'm crying tears of joy that it's over. But I can say something nice here right? That's exactly what I'll do to make up for it!
There! I said something nice and feel all better now.
Going to try and finish. Got one in the works with faceofeinstein / possibly Debs / perhaps one more solo
Now she tells me
*Looks up and down the street*
*Figures it's time to read liner notes*
Fun times Judypie... even if it is stupid things like the fake name forum or Century club, lol. 😀
Curses! You've decided to pay back my bad joke by listening to some of my songs?! ...dammit...
::: reads bio :::
You have been busy. And your yoga instructor is especially fluffy. And it looks like there's a lot of music to choose from, here! (also, *fistbump* to finding this experience something that opens the heart.)
::: dives in :::
Lol. My liner notes are ridiculous anyway. Did you see that last one? It said "I wrote down this title last month and press play"
Plus there was a picture of a stuffed animal.
I know you didn't say what he said you said! I'm going to unleash my feline wrath onto him!
Ha ha! Thank you for braving the roller-coaster of full-on Sapient!
I sometimes think I should hand out medals for it 😉
Spoiler alert...Colton James never finds his wife and daughter and he dies on the mountain, sad and despondent! Just thought you'd wanna know! 😁
We definitely need to take advantage earlier in the month next time around and make an epic track or two
So you'll have more free time for another song before the deadline?
I really enjoy your comments on people’s songs and in the forums. You are heartfelt and hilarious! Thanks for that!
I don't understand what you mean. I think my comments are clearly the most articulate on the entire site. Maybe even in the world. Or whatever represents a larger sample size.
Is it bad I don't know what you mean by "kick off" ?
HA! I love it! I've almost completed the transition from ass-piring songwriter to common garden gnome!
OK. Ya got me. I AM posting gnomes everywhere. On Monday we're starting a new game of D&D. I have decided to be a gnome. I will be the best gnome. FAWM will be over and I WILL NOT be sad. Because I will be a gnome. That is all.
Julie! How the heck have you done 23?!
blatantly obvious... I must have learned to use actual words somehow; my bad
ICYMI ???!? now you´re just taking the piss 😁
Your little messages and comments are going to be the death of me! 😁
I must remember not to be taking a drink when I read them in future...
Be sure to leave space for 2 more verses, bridge and chorus!
Likes chaos and kittens
She sings like an angel
But curses like the dickens
Hehe they weren't but when I was looking up samples there were a few that scared the crap outta me!
Thanks so much for your kind comments about our collab "Reaper of Death". I also wanted to tell you I love your cat 😀
Unruly? Yep, that one works! RhymeBrain suggested a few that almost rhyme...loopy, booty, choosy, moody, Tutti Frutti...
Thank you for your kind and generous comments Julie! I think I have to write a song for you! Hmmm, what rhymes with "Julie"???
Thank you... it took me by surprise somewhat...
I'm also laughing at the idea of a Mrs DD! I live alone with two cats! 😂😂😂😂😂
I'm having a really hard time transferring the picture from my phone to my laptop, but I'll keep trying.
Please don't hurt me. 😞
Already started laying down a bass line and drum track for you... 😉
I’m a fraud - I have no bible knowledge, I used Wikipedia!! I am that person 🙈 always liked religious imagery so thought I’d incorporate it into a song this FAWM!! I also got it wrong - the garden was in the east, my bad haha!!
And I'll have to catch up with my listening!
I'll make my finale a big one and dedicate it just to you. 😀 xx
Since it's the rules, I'll try to get a kitten pic posted.
Thank you for dropping by and leaving a lovely comment 😀
Thank you for the kind words! Total honeymoon song 😀 Wedding times were a total blast! We stayed at this crazy beautiful cabin in the cotswolds on a fishing lake and I wanna goooo baaaaack!
I just keep making bangers and take each track as it comes.
For a man having spent 6 weeks in Thailand nobody can realise how much i value someone telling me they have tea xx
I may have to get some garageband tips before my next trip. Woohoo music lesson for Karl 😉
well in that case you are a little ipad genius. You'd work well in a hammock in thailand i tell ya 😉
Now there's a FAWM challenge for you. Can you create something in "his" studio without his knowledge, before the end of feb........although i'm aware this isn't very private so i may have given the challenge away there...........or maybe that just makes it more exciting 😉
Cheers for the comment! Btw you have become some sort of unstoppable collaborating FAWMer this year. Rad.
Unbelievable stuff this year. Keep em coming!!
I can't keep up with the enormity of your talent. Five new songs in two days!
I humbly ask for an extension so I can peruse them leisurely and savour each moment.
Thanks for the listen and comment on my latest song
Thanks Julie!! (The Queen of FAWM)
Answering your question, oftentimes the craziest decals come from us employees! There's crazy stuff all over the place, like I have a nearly 2' tall LEGO Yoda model sitting on my desk, watching for intruders, and one of my friends collects, like, every single amiibo figurine that has ever released, all lined up for display. It's mighty impressive, but photography is absolutely prohibited, so you'll have to picture it all in your mind. 😉
Oh, thank you so much for the comment on "something higher." Your crystal sounds awesome. I love them all. ❤
ok currently its a crap arse demo done instantly whilst watching your bloke perform (thats not weird 😉 ) so will get some instruments and shit down tomoz and send it over
😂 to be fair, we could all do with less nappy talk in our lives! Thanks for your comment on ‘An Easy Life’ 😉
I know you're stupidly busy trying to break all FAWM records that ever existed but i think i got something for you to sing. before crimbo i watched a vid you did of Ads doing an open mic. I don't what song he was doing but assumed it was radiohead. Anyway i piddled a little piano thing inspired by it, and now i formed it into a song. So if you fancy it it's yours. I haven't recoreded anything yet of course but would lurve your vocals on it x
I say let's find out!
Hold up..driving to work? On a saturday??? What is europe even like then...
I am disappointed in your answer to the Melodica question.
The obvious answer is "Team Green". 😞
