Influences: Aimee Mann, Carole King, Tori Amos, Laura Nyro, Kate Bush, Bette Midler, Fleetwood Mac, Indigo Girls, Mary Chapin Carpenter, and Beatles of course!
2019 I've had another challenging entry into the New Year and I swear I just want to quit making music and playing because of all the frustrations. Maybe FAWM will pull me out of that.
MY 11th FAWM!! A WHOLE DECADE!! What do I win??
2018 - I am hoping to do FAWM and crossing my left fingers since I started the year out by slipping on the ice and breaking my right elbow (not good for a Pianist and piano teacher!)

2016 - 31 plus a couple corpses; I didn't count!
2015 - 28 never going back to under 14
2014 - 10 songs - my Mom was in rehab for fractured back and my cat died of cancer
2013 - 14 songs! almost all collaborations...wow all these years I thought it was 13 but I organized my files on dropbox by years and found it was 13...I had doubled a number!

2011 - 13 songs
2010 - 8 songs

email@example.com? Ah, I see my error. Re-sent to the correct email, via Paypal.
It was Paypal. I wonder if I mistyped a character or something. I'll check.
"We honor the muse wherever we find it." So true, Lori, and thanks for commenting on "Easy Shed My Tears." I was feeling my mortality late at night and, as the song challenge opened a tiny rift for creativity, those thoughts rushed out and took over. 😀
I'm OK with you performing it and I see that Amanda's good with it 😀
Sent via Paypal FRIENDS - looks like it'll take a day to process, but you should have it then. Yep, I always have to remind people about the fees when they're paying me. I'll look into getting other payment services; it's a pain!
Hi Lori, I'd like to send you a Fawmstock deposit but don't have Venmo or Google Pay. I do have Paypal, or could snail-mail you a check - are those options?
Wriggle Them Fingers has music now.
Hi Lori. The cut up method is when you take and article of writing, a short story, a newspaper article, or a chapter of a story in a form (whether an article from newspaper or magazine, printed copy of a story--something you don't mind cutting up) and you cut the words up anywhere within a sentence giving a few or more words on some strips, one on others, two on others and then rearrange the words to create new lines. Oftentimes you will get some unique word pictures this way. Play around with the words rearranging them until you get something somewhat obscure, yet cohesive, then you create a new theme based on what you come up with and arrange your strips into your song story. Sometimes you might have to change something for the cohesiveness of the song. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m1InC...
Thanks, Lori! I sing a handful of my own things for 5090 and a few for FAWM - mostly I sing when I do morphs, exquisite corpses, and auntie sin games because I have to and I try to push outside my comfort zone.
Hey thanks for stopping by and commenting on Cheques. I can't take credit for the hook line but will own the crappy guitar bashing. 😉
Hey Lori - do you accept Zelle as a payment for FAWMstock?
Thanks for listening and commenting on my song ' Im so glad i got rid of facebook '! Cheers mate !
if I send a drop box link you can have the actual .wav file so you can do the trick of split mono (panned hard L and hard R and float your voice right down the middle: dropbox okay?
"Near the walled garden" Lori, lyrics, go for it. FYI the alternative title is "Paradise in Sight" , that may help or hinder. Actually I suggest ifyou record it you put it up under that title as a collab (I'll be gone within 6 days, not back till Mar 5) and use a joint copyright statement on it. Do you want a better (higher quality) track than the 190bps CD standard MP3?
Goodbye is all yours, Lori!
Hello fellow 2008'er!! 😀
Hey Lori! I listend to "Life or death" and I just wanted to say, I hope you feel better soon! Happy FAWMing!
Hmmm... My tablet has just refused to play anything from Soundcloud! 😣
I'll be back tomorrow to listen when I'm on the PC. 😎🤘
Aww, thanks Lori. 😊
I'd had coffee... It just hadn't started to work at that point though. 😉
LMFAO! NOOOOOO!!!! I had to switch things around for the song... there are still parts of the conversation I'm remembering that I need to put in there... lolol...(just need to switch those around, too...you know...add some drama lol)
Downloading! EDIT oops, no it's not. Did you tick the box in "permissions" on soundcloud? EDIT EDIT got it thanks!
C'mon Lori, even just a short one?
Thanks for listening and commenting on my songs "Tempting Time" and "Vagrant Sea", I really appreciate it!!
Lol thanks for listening to my songs!! Can’t wait to hear what you’re up to! 😊💜
Thank you for the feedback on "Back On The Road" and thanks for stopping by and taking a listen.
Thanks for checking out the creepy subway song! I added some freaky guitar and remixed, so now it is about 1000 times more creepy, in case you wanted to check that out, lol. 😀
Thank you for listening and commenting on “Sacred, Not Secret, Underwear”. I look forward to hearing some of your songs soon!
Thank you so much for stopping by and your nice comment!
Thanks for the kind words, Lori. Hope you're feeling better soon.
Hi. Thanks for your comment. I hope you get inspired soon. FAWM is a good place to get your mojo back.
Hi Lori!!! Don't quit - I feel like that sometimes too. Take care of yourself, and take a deep breath. It really does fall into place eventually. 😀
Thank you for your lovely comment!
Thanks so much for checking out my surf tune! Always feels good to get started here... I appreciated you taking the time. 😀
Thanks for your kind comment. No plans or arrangements for music yet, so its yours if you want it.
Thanks, glad you liked it!
Thankyou for listening to my first song . Cheers mate !
