Cynthia Size and the Timewasters - I had to look at the name again, I thought I clicked the wrong song and accidentally clicked on Timmy The Tapeworm. Is this Spooncore? Bring back the beautiful sequencing that we've grown to love. Save the Spooncore for my collab with you. :lol:

Dollar Bill & the Inkpoints - Pretty cool! This is Johnny, right? Interesting. This makes me want to go take my dog for a walk out on the treadmill with this song playing on my futuristic listening device called an "ipod" *holds up hands and makes air quotation marks with fingers* JANE, stop this crazy thing......called techknologyeeeez. Good song, I like it.

Mr B and Mr C
- Why is the volume so boosted? Sound like a good little story was starting, but got cut short. I want to hear the rest, lol. Sounds like you were waiting for sex, what happens next? Image

Wages - Nice, I really like this one. As usual, I couldn't help but think how this song would rock with a full band, like the Urethra's. You're really building up a nice collection of guitar techniques. I like it.

Billy's Little Trip feat Generic and Wages - This was a fun song to do and rock out to. Although I had an idea of what I wanted it to come out like, it really came together late in the month...very late, due to collab problems (no fault on my collab partners end) and technical difficulties, lol.
Generic handled all the keys and back up vox. He was supposed to be my January collab, but he filled in on this one. I really like the old classic organ sound. It really made me want to go very retro with the whole thing, but I held it to the intended plan. The piano bridge is totally the ying to the guitar bridge yang to make it a bad ass crescendo. Thanks Generic, you sir, kick major ass!
Phil Wages helped me out after I had technical problems and couldn't record anything. With very short notice, he busted out the vox with a short list of what I had in mind, and pretty much nailed it. He did a better job than I could have. Thanks Phil, you tore this song a new one!
All in all, I think we did a pretty good job.

Cynthia Size and the Timewasters: I could complain this goes nowhere, but then, that is the point isn't it? Does the fact the song is a waste of time make it bad, or does its ability to forfill it purpose of wasting time in fact make it not a waste in time, but an excellent study in song making? And if so, does that in fact make it a waste of time, because it failed to be a waste of time?

Dollar Bill & the Inkpoints: Where is the future anyway? I too await my flying car and self drying pants.

Mr B and Mr C: This round of Purple Reign is like a subliminal j$ assualt. Cashfest. Whoever is singing this song doesn't convince me of his authenticity in this situation, though.

Wages: "My love lying down like a beaten soldier". I like that line, for some reason.

Billy's Little Trip feat Generic and Wages: Very angry. Very cool. I like the bass line. Full of cum? And a piano break. Wow, this has a little bit of everything. Very ambitious song, but you all manage to pull it off.

Dollar Bill & the Inkpoints gets my vote, simply because I can bop along to.

CS & tTW – The bass sounds a bit out of synch – it sounds like a Warsaw studio outtake with a robot singer instead of Ian Curtis. Oh it’s over? Cute but too short.

DB&tIP – Great sample Bill found, and awesome theramin-style keyboard on the chorus from him as well as extra percussion which handily take the edge off my clod-hopping programming. I love this lyric, but I find it so depressing! Which way to The Jetsons, indeed! I wanted this to sound like the electro-pixies, which it doesn’t, but as ever I like where it ends up when I work with Bill.

Mr B & Mr C – Heh, reminds me of The Residents - like the woozy, half-cut stoner ambience very much. Doesn’t hang around unwanted either. A joke, but a cute one.

Wages – That’s very pretty melody / guitar-work in the chorus, not so keen on the verses. Far too long, though. By about a minute I am waiting for it to end, the story is not engaging me, and there’s not much else to hang my attention on. It’s a good tune but it feels a little, well, not exactly under-developed, but lacking in a real brain-teaser.

BLT feat. Some folk – Rawk! The bass tone could be dirtier. Did Phil decide to sing like he had a cold, or did he really have the flu? It kind of works actually, they’re well performed, it just sounds a bit like he’s trying too organically match the distorted backing vocals at times. Pretty progtastically dramatic but maybe lacking a real strong hook to make it hummable-in-the-shower? Betty Grable / masturbating / heart full of cum is curious. The keys, though well played, don’t really bring anything except strange counter-point. Actually that’s not fair, they work well to break up the full on-ness that would otherwise make the song too monotonal. Still (continuing BLT’s exercise metaphor) this is a bit like 20 minutes on a running machine. Gets the heart pumping and makes you feel good about yourself but as soon as you turn it off, you remember very little about it five minutes later. All that said, I do think this is a very good song, and possibly the best song in the fight, so I’ll probably vote for it. It’s just I feel like there’s some sleight of ear going on trying to trick me into liking it more than it actually deserves. Hey, it worked, so no complaints!

sleight of ear going on? LMAO! It's funny because it's true. Not trying to trick anyone, but I did feel like a fireworks display conductor, organizing everything to go off at just the right time to create an emotional roller coaster ride, for the ooo and ahhh factor. But just like a fireworks display, or a roller coaster for that matter, it's hard to describe exactly what got your heart pumping.
But you did remember, Betty Grable, masturbating, and heart full of cum. :P

BLT/etc - the organ intro might go a little long by itself. but when the rest of the music kicks in that is forgiven. nice bass! i like the organ quite a bit, je. nice song. i'm not always totally behind the vocal tone, but often it sounds quite good, especially when you belt it out.

cynthia - hmm, vocal is too repetitive. need to do more with this song to make it more interesting.

dbti - this makes the third song in which i've sampled the roll-oh movie. awesome! j$ sent me complete lyrics and we worked up a song for it. i didn't get to finish the production, unfortunately, because i left for vacation. i love j$'s talent for making catchy vocal lines and clever lyrics. rock on, mr. cashpoint! i played the tuned theremin from reaktor.

mrb&mrc - take your time singing. you're rushing too much. the instrumental intro is nice, but the song ends too quick for me to get much out of it.

wages - hey, nice vocal, sounds clear. lyric gets kind of repetitive, though; isn't it the same thing repeated several times? yeah, needs more variety.

favorites: blt, dbti

wow, i kinda like our song the best. it's mostly j$, does that make it okay to vote for? :)

Are the polls closed, or are you extending the voting to the 17th also?
I ask, because someone here tried to vote for our song and couldn't. It would have tied us up and we would have had to do a song off to the death. :wink:
