No, no, i haven’t totally quit the internet. Quite the opposite actually. After much hemming and hawing, i finally found the right combination of time, nerve, and Gina to enter into combat over at SongFight, where internet musicians engage in a gory battle to write the best song for a given title in a single week. Our entry last week was a bit of a meh songwriting effort on my part that i won’t inflict on you, but this week Gina turned in a lovely folk song that i managed to only partially screw up in my all-night attempt to mix it.
So, okay, here’s the thing. I want you to vote for us in the “Moscow, Idaho” fight. so we can be all successful and validated and respected and stuff. However, sending you over there just to vote for me isn’t fair to the other combatants — you wouldn’t listen to any of the other excellent entries! My solution is that i will not reveal our band name; if you know anything about Gina you can easily pick us out, but otherwise you’ll be forced to listen to other entries until you recognize us!
Well, okay, maybe that’s a shitty idea. I’ll give you a hint: our “band” name consists of both of our screen names, sortof. Okay? There you go. Meanwhile, make sure you at least listen to Jim Tyrrell, Son of Supercar, RedCar, and Forty Second Songs, as they have all received glowing endorsements on The Discussion Board. And, if you really want to hear some good tunes, check out the stream of this week’s other fight, Romantic Cheapskate, which is more of a heavyweight battle (you’ll see what i mean).
More (actual) blogging soon (maybe).
