The Movies That Make Us - Netflix

A short series that I binged last night a friend turned me on to - 'The Movies That Make Us' on Netflix. A fun docuromp on behind the scenes on how favorite movies actually got onto the screen. Home Alone and Die Hard had quite the tortured path to getting finished. And I knew Ghostbusters was way b...

Skeleton Key
by Moon Baby


Let’s go run

I’m saying I’m tired

Of waiting

We can leave this whole place behind

(This is a new artist - I'm nudging them to get an account for themselves, but it's not a BYD production)

I'm thinking 'Whacked on the Leg' is perfect for your next Nur Ein band name.

Re: hey boomer listen to my old song (thread)

radio.PNG Photo of my old radio studio (but not me at the board). Now I need to search my old 2 tracks reels from the radio station. The production room was a quasi mix of things - I'd usually have multiple stereo cart machines with pre mix material we'd toss live vocal tracks onto a otari 2 track....

Re: Long time no see

Thank you for writing it! I got hours of enjoyment - I don't have many CDs in the car, so it was in my player for longer than I had planned, I probably got a few dozen plays on it. The car is the best playback system I have, and it's got dolby 5.1 so if people do a stereo/quad mix it's a great place...

SpinTunes 16 - January 2020

I don't have the final dates, but it looks like SpinTunes 16 will have signups in January. Governing Dynamics will be the new coordinator, after Dr. Lindyke needed to take a step back. My best guess right now is it'll start by February, and wrap up before Nur Ein kicks in. More info as I get it! I d...

Re: Long time no see

welcome back! I'm one of those that bought both physical CDs. DJ Ranger Den raved when you did your first release, so I bought it on the recommendation. I had heard 'Welcome to Windows' but none of your other songs, and I was not disappointed. Then I got an email from your record company on 'Both Th...

Only shadows for this year are up. Anyone can be a data janitor, so if you organize all the shadows for a year and send me a zip, I’ll put them up.
I’ll look through my archives. Most likely I have some that were played at the LPs that might not have a link in the threads.

Another feature request - playback counter somewhere on the site? I know one next to the judges scores would be confusing.

I like the color coded pie circle on the actual judges scores around the tally number. I missed that at first glance.

Re: Promote your own ish

That’s awesome you’re up to 5 albums this year! I keep threatening to master and release the BYD catalog, and perhaps a Christmas Pop Machine compilation this year. I’ve had a DistroKid account for 5 years. I should actually use it.

Re: Favorite oldies

Another of my favorites - Folsom Breakout Blues by Ross Durand

The challenge was to write a 'Sequel Song' to a top 20 hit. Ross chose Johnny Cash. He done good.

SpinTunes 16 happening this fall

The semi-annual SpinTunes looks like it'll be an Annual event, at least for 2019, with signups and a schedule coming this Fall.

It's been a long road the last 9 years - looking forward some more great tunes.
