Aging bohemian. Left to myself, I'd be a hermit, but I happen to love/hate doing this. . . which more or less requires social interaction. Go figure.
Lots of music education in my youth. I am no longer in my youth, nor do I regret leaving it. But if I could remember where I left it, I'd go get it back.
FAWM 2020. Last year it was all about Linux. That worked well. For the last few years, everything I hear, and everything I write sounds like I've heard it before. I even wrote a song about it a few fawms ago. So, this year, I'm avoiding the whole problem. I'm just writing lyrics. Although if Arthur Rossi is back this year I am definitely writing music for one of his lyrics. I really missed him last year.
No songs by this fawmer (yet).
Hi! I can try setting lyrics, I've never done it before so can't promise it will be the greatest thing in the world, but I can certainly give it a go 😀
Thanks for the watch list add! Happy FAWM!
nice to meet you, bay area neighbor!
Hey there! I am always glad to greet another filk person, however loosely associated. 😁 Have a great FAWM!
Hi, Paul. Hope you have a great FAWM!
have the best FAWM this year!
Hi Paul, cheers for popping by. I've made a mental note of your "lyrics only" status and to pay another visit once you've got some songs up. It's an easy win if I can find some word ready made words to inspire a tune.
