Paris Accord

As a European, I thought I just had to start a thread on this. Europeans indeed are quite pissed at the Trump administration now, though I can assure you most Europeans are intelligent enough, unlike Trump's voters, to distinguish separate American idiots from the, thankfully, overwhelming majority ...

Re: Circle of Titles VII

By the way - anyone here who knows about Jon Eric? Last time he was logged in was September 10th, 2016. I sent him a PM.

Re: Circle of Titles VII

OK, another update. I was unaware of the news considering Merisan and the Ein final when I proposed the schedule for CoT VII. Changed the above dates accordingly.

Re: Nur Ein XII - Round Seven

Whoops, haven't read this. Congrats to Sam and Erin! :)

4 way finale is going to be thrilling :shock:
Looks like I am going to have to postpone this year's Circle of Titles (which I will be hosting together with jast). See thread for details if you're interested.

Updated thread, including a time schedule. I'll post this here, too: Get the titles to me within the next two weeks. Deadline is Friday, June 23rd, one minute prior to midnight. I'll randomize the songs over the weekend (planning to have them assigned by Monday), and they'll be due on Monday, July 1...

Circle of Titles VII

Hi there! It's me, Nick Soma, not Jon Eric, as you can see. ;) Yet Nur Ein is coming to a close once again, and I don't know about Jon, but anyway someone's got to do the CoT thing, 'cause that's SF tradition as of now, right? So here's a thread for a start. I have no experience hosting a Circle of ...

Re: Nur Ein XII - Round Four

Not sure I’d have been ok with the lyrics anyways. Even reading along with the lyrics I got lost in the first verse at 1 point. Hopefully you and everyone else, uh, "got" the lyric of my song. Maybe I wasn't being clear enough, I wouldn't lay the blame on you. So, if any of you have no clue what it...

Re: Nur Ein XII - Round Four

Nick Soma: Sounds like you’re recording from behind a duvet. Apart from that I dig it, or what I can hear. I like the c-86 style chords and guitar, although some guitar notes are way louder than the others which is weird. The relentless drums start to wear a little bit after a couple of minutes. I ...

Re: Nur Ein XII - Round Four

Jerkatorium's back-to-school lyric reminded me of a nice TMBG track I figured I'd post here just for fun. It would easily have made a top spot in Nur Ein VII Round Five.

Re: Nur Ein XII - Round Four

Wow, really great songs by everyone. Glad I don't have to judge ;)

Every time I listen to my submission though, it bugs the hell out of me. I am still really proud of that composition, but the recording is total shit. :x

Re: Nur Ein XII Round Five

somebody proposed a challenge where they wanted to specify the genre of music you'd have to create. if you think this is bad, you should be glad i vetoed that one :) -bill And seriously, I wouldn't mind that either. We had "Metal", "Waltz", "Guitar and voice only", and, suggested by me, "Psychedeli...

Re: Nur Ein XII_ Round 3_ Song Bio

I might add some notes on my own song later. Suggestion: rename this as a general Nur Ein (or perhaps Nur Ein XII) song bio thread, so we don't have to open a new one for every round (plus, it's not like many Einers would post here, as of yet...)

Nick Soma - A Sense of the Absurd Mondegreen song: "Slow Down" by Nada Surf Alright, mi amigo, no need to guess, What we have here is a case of subliminal mess.

Re: Nur Ein XII - Round Four

Not really pleased with my entry, but I think I did quite well with the challenge this time. :)
BTW, my voice is total shit again. You might like this one. I mean, my voice really sucks. Might sound even more like the Psych Furs this time. ;)

Re: Nur Ein XII - Round Three

Nick Soma - Now I know it didn’t say the guest vocalist could be audio clips from other media, so I guess I can let that slide. That’s straddlin’ the fence in terms of meeting the challenge though. What bothers me most is that this song screams out for multiple vocalist & you don’t have them. You w...

Re: Nur Ein XII - Round Three

Challenge wasn't that hard this time. It said "vocalists", not "singers", which makes the whole thing a lot easier. Terry Crews, Malcolm McDowell, and the ghost of Charlie Chaplin were all delighted to feature on my track. I don't believe they have been in any Ein before.

In, by the skin of my teeth. An hour before the deadline, I was about to give up. Now I'm glad I didn't, since obviously everyone who submitted a song will make it to the next round 8-)

Re: Nur Ein XII - Round Two

A few notes on my song: I first wanted to do something completely different, with a lot of lyrics like many of you have done. Didn't work out though. The combination of the title and challenge, to me, seemed to scream for a quasi-instrumental like PF's "One of These Days". The lyric came to me spont...
