We might want to stress in these posts that the challenge is NOT optional, unlike standard Song Fight!
You WILL be graded on this.

Just wanted to give a heads-up: I'm dropping out. I was already massively stretched for time, and when I was singing late last night I managed to injure myself, so I'm rocking a down-deep vocal cord pain that kept me up and hasn't faded much today. Better to give it up than to cause myself more injury. Have fun, everyone!

Shit! I just sent the worst track in but you all must deal (I know that I shall get no sympathy). At least I'm in. UGh. I have a tech rehearsal and a theater thing tonight and was prepping for all this all week. Dammit! I just kind of threw everything into a daw and just HOPED and PRAYED and swore a lot for a few hours. also my cats tried to sabotage me. good grief. This is not my finest hour though... whooooooo.

Thank you for allowing me to complain here. I feel better even if you do not and are rolling all of your eyeballs. :)

(also ... I'm sorry about your voice Minty :( )

Ours is in - written and recorded in 3 hours in the rehearsal studio. Nivs and I were both sick as dogs with a cold (and you can kind of hear it) BUT nonetheless I feel pretty good about this one! Though I am wishing we took the hoody off of the Blue Snowball for the final take (the one we used).

Sorry to hear about your injury, Minty. Rest yourself and hope to see you next year.

The Owls are in

Paul wrote words and music this week, and did lead vocal.

I just did the recording stuff.

Ps. Bad luck Minty. Sorry to see you go.

Mandibles’ product is the title of the song, a patented system whereby one actually feels the internet’s binary code in an immediate and pleasurable way, without need of a screen. Internet Sensation is protected by an unregistered trademark. We may seek injunctive relief should the trademark be violated, with court fees to be paid by the offending party.

I forgot to mention that our product is a pill that makes you popular.

Nivs sang lead and played guitar, I sang and played Omni, Dr. Tom Urwin played bass and did the voice over, Ellen plays drums and sang back up.

My song concept is probably similar enough to infringe upon your trademark, haha. But I think mine is a scam anyway, I certainly don't trust that guy who is singing on it.
