Re: Nur Ein XIII Round One "Internet Sensation"

Just wanted to give a heads-up: I'm dropping out. I was already massively stretched for time, and when I was singing late last night I managed to injure myself, so I'm rocking a down-deep vocal cord pain that kept me up and hasn't faded much today. Better to give it up than to cause myself more inju...

Re: Don't have a cow! (Sacred Coward Reviews)

Zack Facco: I like the organ, and the bass is good (although the bass and kick are too strong on my mediocre speakers.) Would have liked to hear the guitar fade up earlier during the last organ chord, long before the bass started. Too many long verses made the song longer than I prefer. I really li...

Looking for a good woman

I'm partnering with someone on this week's fight...but last night I wrote an unrelated instrumental piano piece, and this morning (in the shower of course) I wrote some lyrics that make it fight-appropriate...for a woman. If I sing it, it will sound a bit creepy, but if a woman sings it, it will be ...

Re: Please circle the entries you like (Circle Me reviews)

The only thing I can suggest is you find a way to make the guitar sound less like a broken banjo. I am pleased to see the unexpected trend of people thinking my ukulele is a guitar (and vice versa) from Nur Ein VI is moving into the main page world! I guess it's the way I tend to strum the ukulele ...

Fluffy, thanks for the great cover. The orchestral arrangement was soothing, and your vocals were nice, but something about the way you phrased "eat me" made it seem so much dirtier than the original (this is something I approve of.) Also, when your layered harmonies came in, I was both ca...

Submitted. Instrumental. I'm content, if not overjoyed, at how it turned out. Plus, earlier in the thread my cover-ee stated they would be late with their submission, so now I don't feel so bad. I will say this, however: I didn't realize such a lovely melody lurked in the song until I tried to play ...
