Feliz Nevada?

Is it just my computer, or is this thread completely Nevada'd?

(Feliz Nevada?)

Edit: Oh, now that we're on a new page the problem is, of course, resolved.

Edit #2: Oh, and now the problem is miraculously fixed. Wowee! Carry on!

Thanks for resurrecting this thread, Ray. I've never written down resolutions then checked my performance against them before.

1. Done, moved into a 1 bedroom, though not a cottage/in-law.
2. Oops...
3. Hmmm... that's pretty subjective. I think I did alright this year, with a few winning Loyalty Day songs, some fun songs with Erin as Merisan, and a victory for Tiny Robots's first entry.
4. Sadly this didn't happen. Still, SF Live in Boston was exciting. I saw some old friends and made a bunch of new ones and performed my own songs solo for the first time.

For 2006:

1. Get to work on time, for real.
2. Travel abroad, for real.
3. Get a new job.
4. Come up with a "Web 2.0" startup idea that will make me rich...
5. Enter at least 6 more SongFight!s as Lunkhead.


Wow, re-visiting resolutions for the second year in a row... Kinda scary actually. Let's see:

1. Uh... yeah, the thing is I have a sleeping problem, or something, uh, yeah...
2. Mission accomplished!! Erin and I had a great trip to Brussels and Paris. Yay!
3. Nope, better luck this year.
4. Nope.
5. Damn. I only did 1. Still, better than none, I suppose, and I did some covers, and my first collab, which turned out great.

OK, this is starting to get a little predictable, huh? For 2007:

1. Really get a new job (pursue my connection at Pandora more, specifically).
2. Travel around the East coast.
3. Enter at least 3 SongFight! songs as Lunkhead (a little more realistic this time), and maybe try to do an AAD (not so realistic).
4. Collaborate more, hopefully with Glenn Case, and as Otalgia again, and do more songs with Merisan and Tiny Robots.
5. Go to SongFight! live, and play 1-3 other SongFight! related shows.
6. Have a good 30th birthday party in a few weeks, and have a better New Year's Eve at the end of the year.

What a stupid resolution.

I'm still drinking out of cardbord boxes.

My resolution is to get serious about my computer recording and mixing. I'm very determined to learn this stuff and become good at it.
I just don't want to start over doing my recordings like I did on my "It Belongs To Me" entry. I have a bad habit of getting too creative when I get a new toy. :roll:

Well, at least the megafight helped me avoid the "getting older and doing less" downhill slide...

Not exactly a resolution, but... the old timers around here may recall that I was laid off from Motorola in '03 and have been going back to school ever since. I finished my BA in "Interdisciplinary Arts and Performance" at ASU West last month, so the big project of '07 will be my grand and glorious return to the workforce...

Holy crap. This is almost been my most songfightinest year. It's just been more spread out than in 03 and 04.

2006 was probably also my most productive year for stuff done outside of songfight.

Starting with the May 10th fight:

30 Paco songs (11 in a week, Sober! Yeah I know...quantity versus quality)
1 Slampig entry
1 Sidefight entry
2 collaborations (w/ Jeff Robertson and Phil Wages)

Of course, I probably have more songs than total votes.

Not a fan of resolutions, I'll issue a warning to break out your vocal cancelling software or warm up your skip button finger, as I intend to top these numbers in 2007.

Alright...2 and a 1/2! :wink: I guess with the other guys, I took their material and ruined it, with you I was more of a guest star. Maybe with your new set-up we'll be able to try something more from the bottom up one day. Hmmm? (none of this is a complaint, by the way)
