Re: My Life

Also Australian possums make one of the most blood-curdling hiss-growl-screams known to human kind. Yes. They do. But I think that is only when they are having sex. It’s weird - but I have had little luck in finding romantic partners wanting to experiment with “ possum-style”. Maybe you'd have more...

Re: When you turn 47 (Peak Misery prefight)

I just realized that I misread the deadline, and I'm actually a full 24 hours late! ha! Decided to try this out for the first time and had fun nonetheless. Looking forward to future song fights... Send it anyway! And welcome! I bet you're not too late to make it into the fight and even if you do mi...

Re: My Life

Today is one of those days when I Can't Even. My cat had a seizure last night, which led to an emergency vet visit. They gave her an anti-seizure med that sedated her and made her barely able to walk, so we kept her locked in the bedroom all night at the vet's request so she wouldn't fall down the s...

Re: When you turn 47 (Peak Misery prefight)

In, uncharacteristically early, with a glum little 1-4-5 number about some family stuff. I realized I probably won't get around to doing a better recording/mix in the next week, and so I might as well submit it now. I still kind of want to write a happy one...

Re: Give me reviews or give me... (Liberty Street Reviews)

Hasty reviews this week. I wasn't going to even review this fight because I went out of town for the weekend and am feeling behind on everything, but I figured since I'm listening through again anyway as I try to decide who to vote for, I might as well write a few quick notes.

Re: Cooking

I drink several cups of coffee a day, usually, and if I remember, I can put everything in the night before and set it on a timer so I can wake up to fresh coffee. I buy pre-ground coffee at the store too, or grind it there, instead of by batch at home. Roast me.

Re: Cooking

I have an electric kettle in the kitchen, next to the gun rack. Tea is un-American, though, so in the spirit of our great Founding Fathers, I only ever use it to heat up my afternoon mug of Mountain Dew Code Red.

Re: Cooking

Huh! I totally would have thought the electric kettle would win because the heating element goes right into the water. That was a surprisingly huge difference.

Re: You can now make sick beats in Microsoft Excel

Ha! Whoa. Does it only export to Ableton files, do you know? I totally want to try this but I also would love to end up with something usable outside of Excel at the end.

I've been eating a lot of trash lately because work has been crazy and I'm tired all the time and didn't have time to do any meal prep last weekend, but things are lightening up a little (I think, I hope) and today I made some nice veggies for lunch: brussels sprouts quartered lengthwise minced garl...

Re: Come join in (The Dregs Reviews)

@crumpart, Thanks for the kind words--I wasn't sure if the intro added to the song so it's nice to hear you thought it did!
@ujnhunter, Did you do any tuning on this? It might be the chorus effect, something just sounded a bit processed but it could definitely be the layering with effects added.

Re: SpinTunes 16 Round 1 ‘What a Concept’ Preview

So I’m new to Bandcamp, and I’ve run into an issue where it won’t let me stream the album anymore without purchasing it... I’m using the bandcamp app cause my phone stops the stream after each song on the blog. Am I missing something here? Anyone else have that issue? I believe it will let you stre...

Not currently cooking anything because I spent the weekend frantically cooking so that we can pack all our kitchen stuff.

But most of our time was spent trying to extend the word "of" out to several syllables, which was obviously the best part of the song.
Definitely well worth the extra effort
