Re: Nur Ein XIV Round Five "Where The Streets Have No Name"

Sunday Colors: Did anyone catch that your song is about a failed suicide attempt, and the aftermath of living with the visible gunshot wound to the head/ [face?]? I think they missed it.

Re: Nur Ein XIV Round Five "Where The Streets Have No Name"

This is the first round where I listened to everybody's songs straight through without major interruptions. I'm so glad I'm not a judge. My favorites this week are Max Bombast and Vowl Sounds. I have a blast writing shadows. Even when they don't work. Next year I might not enter Nur Ein. :D I'll jus...

Re: Nur Ein XIV Round Four "No Memory"

I'm sorry the specific details threw Ryan and Owl [and others] off. I wanted to contrast it with images from the new place, but realized he had no point of reference. This is like describing a character and giving her a name, then not mentioning her for the rest of the novel. Sorry! Also, the Frisia...

Shadow sent to NurEin(dot)sidefight(at)gmail(dot)com

It feels really weird. Oh well.
Does it make this thread useless/ redundant? I'm thinking "yes". Time will tell.

Also, if you have antilock brakes, you don't pump them. You floor the pedal. The brakes pump themselves.

Re: Nur Ein XIV Round Zero "Message Received"

I think I've written more songs in Ohne Ruhm than in the main competition. It's a good learning experience, and there's less pressure, so you can experiment more, take a little more time. So please keep shadowing :)
