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

Man back when I was in Texas I'd chug topo by the liter. So good!

Re: Long time no see

Yeah I stopped visiting stackexchange when the current Discourse started. That place was one heck of a cultural powder keg, huh? Was? It still is! Then again I don't frequent SO much anymore either, mostly because I've discovered while IRC people can be dicks they're usually at least helpful. Tange...

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

Opinions are largely meaningless, especially mine. here we go! Phlebia this reminds me a lot of DEVO, and in a great way. If you'd believe it, the only Devo song I know is Whip It. I *do* know that they're idols when it comes to artsy fartsy new wavey post-punk acts. I like artsy fartsy and I obvio...

Re: Long time no see

I think in general the Internet has bifurcated into "decent people Internet" and "complete asshole Internet," and I'm happy to report that Song Fight! is mostly the first one. Mostly. I wish I could say the same about stackoverflow and programming related IRC channels. It's a bloodbath over there!

Re: Long time no see

Perhaps my memory is playing tricks on me: I want to say I remember you from back the day (I was active under various pseudonyms primarily from 06-08), but it looks like we never songfought! You must have been on these boards during some of those anyway... Anyway, welcome back! It's gotten smaller, ...

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

You're right though, the vocals are kind of drowned out in the mix. I wonder if it's a sound system thing? Is the vocal track isolated? I don't know what kind of equipment you're using of course, but it really sounds like too much processing, but it could be lousy mics. If you sent me all the track...

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

Right Town Wrong Address Reviews Phlebia Very cool. I wish I could understand the lyrics because they sound important. The processing on them wrecks it for me a bit, and it sounds like it might be a story song so it's frustrating to not get them. Also more kick boom and bass. They're in the lyric t...

Re: Go ahead (Try Me prefight)

ASMR has been a huge trendy thing, and it's possible that you just never noticed it and now that it's been pointed out to you you're noticing it everywhere. It's a similar effect to how after someone buys a car they suddenly notice all the other people with the same car. It's a trendy thing but I j...

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

By the way, have you considered making any friends in the local police? If law and order in Atlanta functions on nepotism alone it might do you a favour. Either that or spraypaint your neighbours house pink and wait for someone to burn it down. Too far? Ah, if only it were Atlanta and if only I was...

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

Balance Lost : After last fight's more straightforward rock song was such a critical and popular failure (I assume, not checked the results). Ha! He won.

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

An album's worth of good stuff here. Well done everyone. Phlebia: In spite of the filthy distortion elbowing it's way into this mix this is definitely the poppiest thing you've done for a while. I've just criticised Shoehorn for using too many rhyming couplets, and while this track is replete with ...

A nice quiet morning here in Phlebia-land...so here we go! Balance Lost: Lyrically I like theme you went for with this one, and the execution is generally pretty solid (though I must say, I like the musically backing of your previous entry a little bit more). That drum fill that ends with the dinky ...

And I wish it had been a 6-way tie.
Well given that a 6-way tie would have been my first ever win, I'd probably have enjoyed that! Plus it'd be funny seeing that pop up on the "5 years ago!" section every now and again.

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

So many of these are awesome! I'll try to get reviews written sooner rather than later, but I'm probably going to have to set an arbitrary number of votes for myself to give out or else more than 2/3 are getting them.

They leave packages by my garage exposed to sun and rain when they could walk slightly further and at least put them only porch. In their defense, FedEx and USPS do the same thing. USPS is probably the least likely to do it though...
