FAWM is here, and life is good. I'ma gonna sing this year. For real. I say that every year, but this year for sure. I've got to get over my discomfort of speaking into a microphone.

All the stuff that's here is up for grabs in any way you like. I'm doing this for fun, and attaching strings removes fun.

In my abundant spare time, I write iPhone and iPad music apps. Handy pocket MIDI looper with song arrangement features -- yeah, I got one of those. If you're interested in any of these things, drop me a note, and I can hook you up as part of my FAWMers Fly Free program. FAWM got me into making music again, which is what got me into tinkering with apps, and that's almost as much fun as churning out crappy songs!

    So, just making sure that you are hosting with your link? I put that link in my thread from last week and in my comment on your thread just to direct everyone to the right place and avoid confusion. Thanks again!

    Hey! Are you doing the zoom tonight? Seems like there is interest. Thanks for doing this all month!

    I watched Amirkhanian's performance of "Dutiful Ducks" that you sent us a link to - at first I thought "Hey, this is just beat poetry," but the more he got into it, the more it definitely started sounding like a song! And then I thought, "Beat Poetry? Oh Noetry!" Parts of it sounded almost like a drum solo actually...

    So that's where Carol used to disappear to. She didn't even share either. It all worked out though. We replaced her with a younger, more.talented bassist. ๐Ÿ˜ Thanks for your fun comment.

    Sing out! If you don't, it won't (the song). I'm willing to BET your voice is no worse than mine, which is pretty poor, but hey! I've written OPERAS. Okay, I can't sing them properly but I could mock up and tell that the music was possible to sing! Then the professionals get to chew on it!

    A low profile?! You invited all of FAWM to a weekly Zoom room!!

  • @elainedimasi  Jan 24
