I was talking with a coworker the other day about forgotten bands of the 80s, and I mentioned the Slickee Boys. This video is amazing. Peak 80s plus a dash of cable access with a side of VHS. Worth it for the intro alone.

AMAZING intro!

Re: You won't believe what happened next (Long Story Short Reviews)

I appreciate you letting me know how it worked (or didn't) for you. But I like the contrast between the four count spacing after the first two lines and the two count spacing between lines three and four. It's not a good thing if that spacing makes it feel draggy, though. Thank you for being specif...

Re: You won't believe what happened next (Long Story Short Reviews)

I've been working.. okay, that's a lie. I've been conscious of phrasing, etc., On the Jerks podcast there was a conversation about it that stuck with me so it's one of those things I'm at least trying to be aware of. So I was pretty happy with the phrasing and line length of this song. Then you com...

Re: You won't believe what happened next (Long Story Short Reviews)

That being said: I feel asleep to a cassette tape of Enigma 2 - Cross of Changes almost every night from about Kindergarten to 2nd grade. My mom/step-dad are also really into shamanism and took me to sweat lodges all the time as a kid. So hand-drums and chanting are kind of burned into my brain and...

Re: You won't believe what happened next (Long Story Short Reviews)

Also, is that really how you pronounce "Barbara" in England? If so I am SHOOK and I'm not even named Barbara. Uh... No, actually. I hadn't actually noticed until now how weirdly I'm pronouncing Barbara there. Apologies to all Barbs! You should have put Hannah in the list right before that and it wo...

Re: You won't believe what happened next (Long Story Short Reviews)

Thank you. That is some top class commentary. I have really appreciated all the feedback I've received since returning to the forums, but this piece is particularly 'sticky'- I think because it points to areas in the creative process, rather than more technical guidance (which I always feel quite o...

Not to hijack/sidetrack the conversation, but I have all of these and would be happy to talk about all my different SM57s. Also, I highly recommend the PylePro PDMIC78 which sounds a lot like my transformer removed Shure Sm57 for cheap. I'll bite... let's hear why you have all those different SM57s...

Very strong fight, nice work everyone!

If I'm having issues with sibilants/plosives, I'll try backing up off the mic a bit and/or singing at right angles to the front of the microphone, and that seems to help a lot. There is a trick I've seen used with rubberbanding a pencil to the front of a mic, but I don't think that would work so wel...

Re: Before you were famous (I Used to Know You Better prefight)

ok, I'm in with an over-the-top protest song, ahead of the deadline, even! This would almost certainly have been just acoustic G&G if I was left to my own devices, but the optional challenge inspired me to download an arpeggiator and play around with it, and it was so much fun! I also tried adding s...

How do you pronounce his name?

I'm guessing it's Irish, but it reminds me of tahdig (the crunchy Persian rice)
Like "tiger" without the R. :)

I'm going to go see the New Pornographers tonight! With Lady Lamb! A friend had an extra ticket. I'm just starting to listen to the new album now.

I will probably also listen to Coltrane's "Blue World"... I don't really get jazz but I keep trying to. :)

Re: The Stars Are Melting! (Liquid Starshine Reviews)

It's OK to be polygamous/polyamorous and it's OK to be monogamous but it's tough to have a successful relationship when one person is poly and one person isn't. I have some friends who have encountered issues like this. I wrote the lyrics ... I don't think there's any part where the other party is ...
