Re: the $100 question

Update: went to the production class today, it was actually really good! No teenagers in attendance, so it moved fairly quickly, I asked lots of questions and came away with pages of notes--thanks again so much to everyone who weighed in about this, the 2-mic, 3-mic, etc. question in particular got ...

Re: Turn left by the three legged dog (Right Town, Wrong Address Reviews)

@crumpart THANK YOU for explaining that! Also I forgot about Frente!, I used to love them, I spent my drive to this class revisiting them. Fucking songfight makes me think all the time about what i'd complain about if a song was entered in a fight... while I think it's made me a more careful listene...

I don't have the mental energy to comment coherently/specifically on these but I just wanted to say I've been popping in to listen every so often randomly and have been enjoying it!

Re: Turn left by the three legged dog (Right Town, Wrong Address Reviews)

Good fight! Lots of good songs, I'll be voting for a lot of these. It has been a LONG week and I wrote a lot of these reviews after a couple of Old Fashioneds (brandy sour, thank you) so I'm sorry in advance for any typos or stupid opinions. Speaking of which, let's play: OWL REVIEWS DRINKING GAME t...

Re: Turn left by the three legged dog (Right Town, Wrong Address Reviews)

I'm not super sure how to interpret your suggestion about the length because I was thinking of the structure as VVCVVC with an extra line at the end of the second chorus... so no bridge and no groups of 3 anythings... do you mean the 4th verse ("is this what it is to be alive") should come right af...

Re: Turn left by the three legged dog (Right Town, Wrong Address Reviews)

miscellaneous owl Love it. Reminds me of Dog by Nat Johnson https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WWg7-AfoLAY. About twice too long. For example, I would break into the pretty bridge after two verses instead of three. Thanks for the kind words, glad you liked it! Also welcome back to the boards, hope to ...

Re: Go ahead (Try Me prefight)

OK, so how do we find "real" ASMR videos on Youtube and not just "Youtube ASMR videos"? I have a friend who told me she had this, and was SO relieved when it became a thing in the mainstream because she had always thought there was something wrong with her, and had never realized it was a known quan...

Re: the $100 question

Good idea to ask about non-optimal recording setups! I'm sure you're right about being able to get a lot of this from YouTube videos. I figured asking about mic placement and person-placement would be helpful since I think it'll be easier to see how far things are, how they're angled, etc in person ...

I don't have access to it (no BBC/HBO) but I am excited by proxy because I love these books too and I hope the adaptation is good! I did download the new book! But I haven't started reading it because I got distracted by another book!

Last night I dreamed that the optional challenge for the next fight was ‘an actual bee sting’ and all the songs had some top-shelf screaming and swearing.

Re: Remember that one time? (I Used To Know You Better Reviews)

Are you talking about the Vowl Sounds entry? Cause I'm listening to it and I really like it! But then again this is totally my style, it kind of reminds me of Low, which is a very good thing in my book. Apparently you didn't bomb *too* hard cause you still passed. :) Yes indeed, the Vowl Sounds tra...
