Are you asking if folks wanna do it (I do!) or if they wanna run it (I don't!) :-) I'll throw some out for the hell of it and see what happens:

Some Velvet Morning (Lee Hazelwood/Nancy Sinatra)
Pet Sounds [instrumental] (The Beach Boys)
Through the Roof 'n' Underground (Gogol Bordello)
If it's in You (Syd Barrett)

EDIT: I changed my list because I just discovered Some Velvet Morning. I'm not using the internet as much and not coming here as often as a result, but I do want to participate if it happens. I'll probably check often enough to make it work, every week or so, but feel free to hit me directly zack dot facco on the Gee Male.

I would participate. A January schedule would work well for me since my November and December were pretty crazy this year.

I just asked to see if I could prompt Niveous to chime in, as he has historically been the one to run this show. I'm willing to give it a go if Niv is busy or otherwise engaged.

I wouldn't do it if it interferes with FAWM but if 1. I can finish before Feb or 2. I can finish in Mar I could do it.

I'll wait until next week for a few more folks to sign up and then I'll make the assignments.

2. King Crimson - Dinosaur (1995)


3. Peter Gabriel - Digging in the Dirt (1992)

Howdy folks,

I've drawn up the assignments this morning. I'm afraid that because we've got an odd number of participants this year, I don't have someone to match with Heuristics Inc. If anyone decides to join in after today, they will be (spoiler alert) matched up with Bill. In terms of a deadline, I've arbitrarily picked March 15th. I know that there is a lot going on in February, for folks, so hopefully that gives enough time for everyone who is participating in FAWM this year.

Look for your assignments in your PM inbox!
