Well, I have hit midnight, so I am done for the year. 33 that is a personal best (Including 14 full songs, 3 or 4 solid song seeds, a couple done for fun that will probably never be played again, and a bunch of fun experiments with noise). (I got a message from the Action Man) I'm happy, hope you're happy too.
Here is my breakdown;

Hey, ready to go. Hope you all are making it through the miasma in the best way possible.
Like everyone I've had a weird year; been out of work since June, passed the Real Estate exam, waiting on the license, which will probably come through around the beginning of Feb. so my time may be limited for FAWM in Feb. For this reason, for the first time, I'm going to do some prep work in Jan.

Hey a set up a challenge in the forums give it a whirl https://fawm.org/forums/topic/10925/

2/11/21 11 days in been pretty productive, but not writing as many lyrics as I would like to , so that will be the focus.

Found some really good songs, that I'm putting here so I can find them again.

    Hi - Just in case you are checking in before the site goes down, I haven't been on much lately, but for future reference, my email is Nitefire5@aol.com. If you send a note, put FAWM in the subject line so I know it's from a fawmer. I'm also on facebook under Kathy Moran in CT. Be well, stay safe, and thanks for everything.

  • @guatecoop  3 weeks

    Hey if youโ€™re into African beats and such, I really like some of what a band called Mestizo Beat is doing.......as well as Antibalas, the Budos Band, and The Dap Kings, but you probably know those.

  • @kathym  3 weeks

    Hi, I'm sorry ... I ended up watching my grandson overnight and lost track of everything all weekend. Thank you, though, for the invite. If there is another, let me know and I'll send you my email address.

  • @fuzzy  4 weeks

    Yeah, I was pretty sure it was 2pm.
    No worries, though, it all worked out ok!
    Thanks for organizing it! ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @fearlessflight2014  4 weeks

    Thank you!

  • @ferry0123 4 weeks

    Would you be in for an exchange in the #tit4tat thing? I would. For a song, or two, or three or four. (I listened to Similar to kings, which felt like a song in need for a great, shining bass line).

  • @jeff9  4 weeks

    Thanks for listening in on "If Anybody Cares".

    Loved your buzzy/fuzzy guitar tone on that last one--"Where Sally Goes".

  • @wolfkier 4 weeks

    Thanks for chiming in on the tit4tat thread. If I understand it, you'd rather not be on the list, is that right?
    anyone can play independently without a firm commitment, just (maybe) leave a #tit4tat hashtag with your comment and add you're only going 1 for 1 slowly. I know a lot of people don't always refer to forums, and might miss you particular preference, and Im gonna post a new (updated) list so everyone playing gets one later today to keep momentum going through the weekend.

  • @lennie  4 weeks

    Thank you for your comment and advice on 'Just push the button'. I find that skirmishes are great encouragers of 'concise lyrics'.

  • @farmyardorchestra 4 weeks

    Hello and thank you for your Marilyn, the Blue Eyed Cow comment! It was interesting to check up on your observation. The "strings" was a traditional Chinese instrument I was lucky to find in my Garageband: an erhu.

  • @mahtowin 4 weeks

    Thanks for listening to "Something and Moon" and for your feedback. It was great joy to do this collab!

  • @psyt 5 weeks

    Thanks for the comment. ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @farmyardorchestra 5 weeks

    Hello, Pipewrench67! Thank you for your comment! The relaxing thing with Low UV, I guess, is that there is a very reduced risk of skin cancer. The unsettling thing is that it keeps feeding that depression that in the end can only be dispelled by a dangerously High UV.

  • @guatecoop  5 weeks

    Thatโ€™s great. I will do my best to attend next weekend!

  • @fearlessflight2014  5 weeks

    Thanks for that, and sorry I wasnโ€™t paying attention earlier!

  • @wacha  5 weeks

    Yep, I have at least one or two from the first week that I could play.

  • @aeye 5 weeks


  • @gardeningangel1  5 weeks

    Yes, I'm down to play a song this Sinday.

  • @julesbf  5 weeks

    Sorry for the delay in replying, this Sunday wont work for me for the zoom as the time is a class unfortunately. Will keep an eye out if you do it the week after.

  • @gb9  6 weeks

    @pipewrench67 You've made my day start on a win!!!!!!๐Ÿ’œ
    Thank you so much for the lovely interpretation. I've absolutely loved it! Thank you for bringing a vision of my song to life with your version๐Ÿ™‡๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ and you've made it a thousand times better ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป
    Thank you ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @clioem 6 weeks

    Very cool, thanks! I'll see if it prompts anything! if not, well, I had a good run this time even if it wasn't 14 ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • @gb9  6 weeks

    Thank you so much for the appreciation of 'Escape Together'. Stayscape sounds like a wonderful idea to ruminate on, thank you for that thought ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @donna  6 weeks

    @pipewrench67, this is the skirmish you should be on.

    The other one has the wrong number. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • @gb9  6 weeks

    @pipewrench67 God bless you a thousand times over!!!

    Thank you for working on 'This Darkness' I'd love to see it evolve to a song so please go ahead and interpret it anyway you'd like.
    I do not have much knowledge about music or singing so I really can't visualize my work as a song, so go ahead and let me know any changes you'd want me to make.

    Once again, thank you very much and sending you a big massive virtual bear hug!!! You made my day brighter ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @johnstaples  6 weeks

    Thanks for checking!! If I touch the menu icon of the browser (not the website) at top right it has a drop down menu panel. Scroll down and one of the options is "Desktop site". If I have that box ticked I can access the edit and report abuse links. Otherwise I cannot. And the desktop mode is not as nice on mobile.

  • @elesimo  6 weeks

    Hey, no worries! I'll see what I can do! ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @johnstaples  6 weeks

    Thanks for checking that. On my android turning sideways, touching my post, nothing ever triggers those links to appear. I wonder if you are in desktop mode? Or if my Android Chrome browser just won't do that?

  • @zecoop  7 weeks

    I'm gonna post double again but NOT change the second this time... just because! And we are all with Pete. Viva La Pete! (I mean, if he was viva).

  • @zecoop  7 weeks

  • @zecoop  7 weeks

    Why do you do this to me FAWM... Pretend like I hadn't posted... Why? ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • @zecoop  7 weeks

    And *NOW* I see Chris' song, and get it, haha. Perfect. I loved your song already and now it all makes sense! ๐Ÿ˜€

    Hey, thanks for visiting and listening!

  • @zecoop  7 weeks

    Pete Seeger approved. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • @gb9  7 weeks

    Thank you so much for your appreciation and kind comments on 'Aces', I know I have to revisit this one and fix it. Thank you for your kindness. ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @richaaaay  7 weeks

    Thanks for the encouragement. It was fun. Interesting topic you chose.

  • @hummingbear  7 weeks

    Aha!! That looks like a fun way to run language through the wringer.

  • @willow1 7 weeks

    Ooh that skirmish was fun, thanks Pipewrench! I wrote out all the lyrics and translated them to English for you.

  • @wacha  7 weeks

    I totally get it, I made a mess of my last skirmish host and caused a lot of confusion because I made a copy and paste error. I had mismanaged my time and was wolfing down my dinner when my computer crashed just before the skirmish was supposed to state.

  • @theodamus  7 weeks

    It's 5pm Sunday here so I'm gonna go do the walk the dog, run some errands thing - always keen to bounce ideas if you're keen though, whether that's later tonight (depending on how late you stay up) or another day in a coincidental both-awake time ๐Ÿ˜€ thank you for offering!

  • @theodamus  7 weeks

    Thanks for the message! What time is it where you are?

  • @kahlo2013 7 weeks

    Definitely Ionic and fortunately for my stomach and waist a lot more veggies than feta but as they say... ...feta makes it betta...

  • @coolparadiso  7 weeks

    sorry mate - i think the eyes are going! new one put up and old one buried deeper (you cant delete them) but with a a message to move along to the right one

  • @metalfoot  7 weeks

    Thanks! I think I'm ready to roll.

  • @electrocelte  7 weeks

    Thanks very much for listening to Epic! Had a great time working with Adam, he makes great music, I am totally up for making more cool tunes in the future!

  • @postcardhelicopters  7 weeks

    I'm really dumb.

    I see now that I probably should've waited until March to post that backing track. I've updated the post to explain more clearly. I added the details of the song with the thought that if someone didn't have to spend a lot of time figuring that stuff out they could just hit "play" sit back and noodle along, knowing where the best slot would be.

    I apologize for the poor phrasing of my post.

  • @ajna1960  7 weeks

    Not to worry re skirmish dates etc, I am sure it will all work out and everyone will have fun ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @hazzard  7 weeks

    thank you for your comment on Leave Me Alone!! i appreciate it

  • @owl  8 weeks

    I can't seem to download the file from soundcloud! can you email or FB message it to me instead?

  • @jsini  8 weeks

    Thank you for your comments!

  • @lovina 8 weeks

    Hey there! Thanks for responding to my collab classified. Listened to some of your songs. I love the vibe of Almost Flying! I'm down for a collab if you'd like. Shall we chat about writing lyrics? You can email me at lovina1978(at)gmail.com

  • @kahlo2013 8 weeks

    I think it is because I work on an iPad or iPhone which doesnโ€™t allow downloads. But I can see if I can access a computer to do it. It sounds great!

  • @kahlo2013 8 weeks

    Hi! I donโ€™t seem to be able to download your sound cloud link to stitch for the exquisite corpse. Is it possible to email an MP3?

  • @downburst  8 weeks

    Perfect! Thanks.

    Ha, I just realized I said "precious" contributor. I meant previous, of course.

  • @downburst  8 weeks

    Can you give me a snippet of lyrics from your precious contributor? I'd like to have a little continuity.

  • @torosintheatmosphere 8 weeks

    Thanks very much for the feedback on my track. I appreciate the notes.

  • @owl  8 weeks

    I like Bandminton!

  • @owl  8 weeks

    Go ahead and serve!

    Letโ€™s do the sound optionโ€”some track layeringโ€”then words after?

  • @kahlo2013 Feb 13

    Awesome, thanks!

  • @wylddandelyon Feb 13

    Thanks for the heads-up! I saw it late, but I still appreciate the welcome.

  • @gnashattack  Feb 13

    Thanks for your comment on "First." Your influences are pretty much exactly my current playlist so I'll be back to listen!

  • @bradbrubaker  Feb 12

    Hey! I appreciate you thinking of me, but I'm afraid that much back-and-forth isn't quite what I have time for. My time for FAWM for the rest of the month is short bursts, mostly finishing up pieces I've begun in my wide open first half of the month and few forum challenges (including a random collab, which will have to be somewhat quick). Sorry.

  • @metalfoot  Feb 11

    Got it! Thanks!

  • @bradbrubaker  Feb 11

    Eh, lyrics, per se. I spoke a little over my track, but in a way that fit the structure of the music. Last line was "This flower was so full of life it could never die."

  • @bradbrubaker  Feb 11

    You wrote "What did you say?" on my Soundboard. Do mean the lyrics to my Exquisite Corpse?

  • @bradbrubaker  Feb 11

    Hello! Here is a link to the last 10 seconds of my Acoustic LoFi Exquisite Corpse contribution:


    Sorry about the extra silence at the end.

    Hey thanks for the feedback on my track, muc appreciated ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @dzdandcunfsd  Feb 9

    Oh I read about St. Bakhita and Oatmeal Day and human trafficking for more than an hour ๐Ÿ˜ I'll for sure at least tag something if some songs inspired by pop up, and will mark the time for next skirmish. It was a great prompt ๐Ÿ˜

  • @zeekle1998  Feb 9

    Hey, thanks for your nice comment. Appreciated.

  • @oddbod  Feb 9

    Hi, thanks for the comments - I shall try to reciprocate soon.
    I've got no problem with you posting up any of my songs on FB. Thanks for asking.

  • @owl  Feb 9

    I have to watch that video you sent me! It looks fascinating. Thanks for the comments, just about to go do some listening now!

  • @dragondreams  Feb 7

    Please tell her "thank you" from me. ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @berni1954  Feb 7

    Glad you enjoyed my "The Women they tried to Blot Out". Yes, you're right, Music Hall or Irish Pub Songs are the best medium for getting a lot of words into the shortest space possible ๐Ÿ˜

  • @complexissimple Feb 7

    I find that my skirmish writes are both better and faster when I do go down a research rabbit hole. Otherwise I quickly get stuck because I bore myself if I can't come up with some kind of twist on my first concept.

    Also, of course I didn't plan ahead what I was going to write for the skirmish, that would be CHEATing :le gasp:.

  • @nicolascage Feb 7

    I'll tell you this: Animated pictures are a certain kind of delight for me to make, if only that I get to experience them with a certain freshness that I don't typically get to experience. I just read into a microphone, and sometime later, an entire world has been created around me.

  • @davidtaro  Feb 6

    Thanks for the chord - gonna try and fit that in somewhere during FAWM!

  • @radioovermoscow Feb 6

    Awesome! I've been swinging between crunching fuzz guitar and sadcore acoustic this year, with little in between, haha. Have a good FAWM!

  • @radioovermoscow Feb 6

    No worries! I have songs coming out my ears, no problem ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @davidtaro  Feb 4

    Thanks for checking out "The Devil's Rain" and your nice comments!

  • @berni1954  Feb 3

    Thanks for giving my "Salome and Poor John" a listen. I Just saved the Salome Silent Film to my Watch Later list. That's a MUST - I had no idea it still existed as a film outside private collections.

    I was privileged to see Lindsay Kemp's version in London many moons ago. Despite being a "sound" version (live theatre usually is apart from mime ๐Ÿ˜‰ ) Kemp managed to capture the overboard theatricality of this version and the costumes had a similar unsettling effect on the audience too. Thanks for the link.

    Thanks for listening!

  • @iwilleatyou Feb 2

    Top of the mornin'. I'll be back to listen as soon as I figure out why the fuck no links are working for me atm.
