    Hello hello! Thank you for your lovely comment on my lyrics only, Whiplash πŸ˜€ There is now a demo! You asked me to poke you so here's the poke, and the link πŸ˜€ https://fawm.org/songs/125229/ Thanks again!

  • @wolfkier Mar 7

    You still playing #tit4tat. I got 2 of yours. Who's next me or you?

  • @nightwing521  Mar 3

    You described my song "Let's Go To Mars" (https://fawm.org/songs/125171/) as "Seussian/Steinian in its simplicity". I know who Theodore Geisel (Dr. Seuss) is, but which "Stein" were you referring to???

  • @spicyhondog Mar 2

    HOwdy fellow Kiwi!! loving your work dude

    With unwellness, I've been lucky the last few years. Since using CPAP, sinus infections and colds stay in the sinuses, and don't migrate to my lungs as often as they used to. But I still get a deepening of the voice that seems to have lent itself to Break the Ice. I'm just glad I'm back to singing without making a mess.

  • @zecoop  Feb 28

    Congrats on the win! You had an amazing FAWM!

  • @matthew62  Feb 28

    Thanks for your very kind comments regarding Sick and Dread. I truly appreciate you taking the time.

  • @johnstaples  Feb 28

    Congrats on your win! You rocked this!!

  • @gb9  Feb 27

    Thank you for your appreciation and kind comments on 'Identity' πŸ˜€ that one was quite a journey...

    Also thanks for your kind note, it is my first time at FAWM and it's been an absolute pleasure because of wonderful, encouraging souls like you. My goal is to make it 50 songs... hopefully the muse plays along...
    Skirmishes are fun too, somehow this brain works spectacularly well, when under a deadline....

  • @gb9  Feb 27

    Thank you so much for your kind comments on 'Paused'. The event truly was a proper nightmare of sorts....

  • @emkaydeebee  Feb 27

    Hey! Thanks so much for your comment on Light of Night! Really touched by everything you said, thank you!

  • @gnashattack  Feb 27

    Thanks for the comment on "I Can't Remember Don't Ask Me About It"!

  • @nadine Feb 26

    Thanks for your comment on my first skirmish! I haven't thought that much about the lyrics. Just wrote whatever came into my mind.

  • @berni1954  Feb 26

    Thanks for your comments on my Leonard Cohen style song - "The Parting" - You totally nailed what I was trying to do with it (within the time constraint of an hour).

  • @johnstaples  Feb 26

    Thank you so much for your kind words about Christmas Time Is Here Again! You made my night!

  • @klyma Feb 26

    Looks like you're having a great album writing month. Thanks so much for your nice comments about "Hi Ohio." It's my first FAWM. What an experience it's been.

  • @stephenwordsmith  Feb 25

    When I leave comments, I'm never sure whether I have engaged critically with the artist's intent, or I'm just making shit up. Bachelor of Arts, amirite? Pleased that, at least, you appreciate the engagement.

    Neekerbreekers are Tolkien's take on cicadas. I could hear 'em.

  • @cblack Feb 25

    Oh, and switching from cleans to growls to cleans took a VERY long time to learn... I still haven't mastered it, but it definitely is one of my special skills. πŸ˜€

  • @cblack Feb 25

    Lol. I'm a pioneer in psychedelicgrowlfolkmetal! Hooray! 😁

    Glad you enjoyed it. I'll be checking yours out soon. Can't wait to see what you did with it.

  • @gslade Feb 25

    Enjoy your drugs!

  • @tuneslayer  Feb 23

    Thank you for your kind words about "The Game's Afoot." If I had a bucket list, one of the things on it would absolutely be getting my hands on a trove of pre-1996 recordings of I'm Sorry, I Haven't A Clue with the historical cast, holing up somewhere and giggling uncontrollably for a couple of days on end. I've actually only ever heard a single Mornington Crescent segment, and as you can tell by the fact that it (purportedly) featured the automated voice from a GPS receiver, it was relatively recent.

    Actually the same goes for Just A Minute and some of the other Radio 4 panel comedy shows. Other than one or two exceptions (I can only think of "Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me!") we have nothing like that in the States.

  • @gnashattack  Feb 23

    Thanks for the comment on "You, The Screamer." It's actually about mothering my 2 year old and his shitty sleep habits, so you really got it with the intense frustration but also love. I'm glad it came across! πŸ˜€

  • @sourcedecay  Feb 23

    Thanks for checking out "Swimming in the Sun"!

  • @akagitsune89 Feb 22

    Thanks for checking out Flight Risk! Standup did a great job on the guitars!

  • @thevelvetdrone Feb 22

    Thanks for your glowing compliment on my first track this year and for following. Congrats on your progress. taking a listen to your tracks right now

  • @cblack Feb 22

    Wow, thanks for all the comments! And the compliment on my vocal diversity. I really appreciate it!

    Looking forward to hearing Black Magick. 😁

    Mine? I might try a folk song. That's probably the least "me" of the 3 options you gave, which is the point of the challenge for me.

    Gonna try to think folk thoughts now. Or just hit up YouTube for examples of folk-y things.

    Thanks for the prompt! This should be interesting! And also possibly disastrous lol. 😝

  • @cblack Feb 22

    Hey! We've been paired for the reciprocal challenge! I issue you the following challenge:

    Create a FAWMtronica song!

    If you don't have access to any synths/DAWs/etc. then the challenge is instead:

    Write a song with the title, "Black Magick!"

    Have fun. I look forward to seeing your challenge for me!

  • @quork  Feb 22

    Thank you for your great comment!

  • @spacehoers420  Feb 21

    Thanks for commenting! I haven't thought up any song names or anything yet, and I'm not really sure how to label my music besides "electronic", so I just leave it blank.

    I've never been to NZ, but my wife has... she went there for a birdwatching trip a few years ago, and saw all kinds of awesome birds.

  • @infilktion Feb 21

    Thank you for your kind words and for listening to "Bridgemen".

  • @pipewrench67  Feb 21

    Ha, thanks, the evolving vocal line in From the City Lights, was more a result of recently making up the part and faulty memory, than ingenuity.

  • @nikopee Feb 21

    Thank you for commenting! My first FAWM, but definitely not the last!

  • @leakyplusme2 Feb 21

    Thank you for your lovely comment on my lyric.

  • @sunnymae  Feb 21

    Hey theodamus!
    So glad you were diggin' on my harmonies for "anywhere anytime is fine" Sometimes those prompts just pop my head open. This one was an unexpected surprise! Thank you for your comments. 😊

  • @pipewrench67  Feb 21

    Right now 10PM Saturday Night

  • @pipewrench67  Feb 21

    I think I'm going to let the Skirmish fade, but I'll be up for a while if you want to toss ideas.

  • @nadine Feb 20

    Thank you for your words on "Going my way". I like how you describe that sound and feeling. Couldn't have been more poetic!

  • @matthew62  Feb 19

    Thanks for the listen and comments regarding They'll never get their Hanes on me. Much appreciated.

  • @frey Feb 17

    Thanks for the 3196959 nice comments!! I literally live for writing problematic bops. I would love to be your friend <3

  • @majordanby  Feb 17

    Thanks for you kind words. I’m looking forward to coming back to Little Words.

  • @natalie  Feb 17

    I enjoyed your lovely thoughts on my song β€œWaves.” They were especially gratifying to read because you really seemed to get what I was going for with the piece beyond just the surface level. Thank you very much! πŸ˜ŠπŸ™πŸ½πŸ˜Š

  • @opossum Feb 17

    Dear Leo,

    Thank you for listening to my song. I hope you enjoyed eating garbage. I always do!

    Your pal,
    Opossum

  • @apauls Feb 17

    Thanks for the kind words on "Postcard from Missoula." Part of what I love about FAWM is the good vibes, and it's helpful to know that someone would buy an Americana album if I'd put it out! πŸ˜€

  • @scubed  Feb 16

    Thanks so much for your generous comments on my songs!

  • @cleanshoes  Feb 16

    Thank you so much for your lovely comment on Boys Will Be Boys!

  • @rwhosings  Feb 16

    Thanks so much for your notes and listening to and responding to my stuff so positively. I love your sound!

  • @quork  Feb 16

    PS plummeted into that moment was exactly how I felt when I wrote it. So thank you.

  • @quork  Feb 16

    Thank you for your fantastic comment. Much appreciated!

  • @blainev83  Feb 16

    Thanks for the kind words! Much appreciated.

  • @standup  Feb 11

    Still thinking about β€œBirds” the morning after I heard it. Beautiful song, I think the power is the mysterious lyric.

  • @liz561  Feb 9

    Thanks for your comment on my blues song. I use a low G uke to get a bit more guitar-like sound.

  • @stephenwordsmith  Feb 9

    Hi, friend.. I really appreciated your comment on 'Cancel me'.

    Since I'm all the privilege things, I always approach subjects like these with trepidation - it's a Pandora's Box of a topic at the best of times, and those who understand the nuances best tend not to be the ones who've been given a voice and platform out of happenstance.

    So, knowing that that piece, haphazard as it is, wasn't a garbage fire of ignorance is more reassuring than any comment on the wording itself could have been. So thank you.

  • @beat  Feb 8

    Thx. Ja, sometimes HHβ€˜s do rock vey well. Λ‹].

  • @matthew62  Feb 6

    Thanks for the listen and your kind comments regarding Leaving Normal.

  • @persaab Feb 6

    Thank you for your nice comment.

  • @rwhosings  Feb 6

    Thanks for listening to my parody, and the kind words about it. High praise for a fandom song to make sense to someone outside the know!

  • @pvk2020  Feb 6

    Thanks for listening. I posted the same song twice ??? Can't remember how to delete one. So sorry for the flash.

  • @themelgoexperience  Feb 6

  • @elenaduff Feb 3
