  1. [quote name='xgsjx' timestamp='1448184234' post='2913436'] I'm missing this mumph. Will still be voting though. [/quote] Me too, my heart of stone Diddy is so far off the mark that I couldn't justifiably enter it and claim it was inspired by the picture. I've had another idea, but I won't get it done by tomorrow. I've listened to some of the entrants thus far and I have to say I'm very impressed. There is a runaway winner in my mind already but you never know it goes.
  2. [quote name='TimR' timestamp='1448120816' post='2913177'] Or smoking it. [/quote] I talk sh*t not smoke it. 😡😀
  3. I appreciate it but I honestly have to say I don't ever wanna hear or see it again.
  4. [quote name='jonnythenotes' timestamp='1447959855' post='2911893'] I had been into Purple, Zeppelin, Sabbath and the usual mega bands until the night I saw the Pistols. I suppose my judgement was coloured by what I had seen before that night. The overall impression was one of chaos, which we had never seen before, but we all new this was it..... It's difficult to imagine now what it was like for a bunch 19 year old kids,40 years ago, to witness something that did not exist in their minds before that night.....it really cannot be explained... [/quote] This sounds like a "BLUE AND THE BEATLES" moment. One of those 'had to be there' situations.
  5. [quote name='Dad3353' timestamp='1448020288' post='2912326'] You've been listening to [i]my [/i]stuff again, haven't you..? ... ... [/quote] Guilty. 😉😳
  6. [quote name='EssentialTension' timestamp='1447621063' post='2909054'] Time gets to decide. [/quote] Maybe this is correct. Maybe not. Time does not exist. It's merely a theory or an explanation to help us quantify a period of existence. It is we the people who ultimately decide the fate of music as it passes down through the generations. It is people who decide what to carry forward and what to leave behind. It's a question of quality, what is quality and how do you quantify the qualities in a song or a piece of music that deem it worthy of remembrance. What is it that makes certain music relevant and continue to be relevant. I wish I knew the answer to these questions. I wish I had that musical Midas touch. I agree that a lot of pop music is irrelevant, a sort of chewing gum for the brain but every once in a while a gem comes along and gets its hooks in the psyche of a generation and another icon is born and like it or not it will be carried forward and passed on for decades and attributes will be afforded to it in retro that probably never existed in its conception and infancy but this is all part of that quality, that unquantifiable something that may be no more than a shot in the dark, but it was enough to capture the hearts and minds of a generation and generations to come.
  7. [quote name='Dad3353' timestamp='1447159030' post='2905327'] ??? [/quote] I'm using the term very loosely. 👍🏿
  8. I had one for a while. It was very good. I used it with an iMac with logic so I can't really comment on the issues you are experiencing as I understand you are using a Windows PC. Mine was plug and play. I had an issue where the guitar always sounded out of tune when recorded. It was fine in the headphones but the track once recorded sounded off. This came good I'm not sure how. Decent piece of kit I must say. I didn't use any di boxes or fx pedals I instead used the logic fx if I wanted to add distortion etc.
  9. [quote name='Dad3353' timestamp='1447125996' post='2905093'] A vocal rendering here, with a touch of mystery to it. Yes, you may hum along; I'm sure you all know the tune... [url="https://soundcloud.com/dad3353/calling-maria"]Calling Maria ...[/url] [/quote] I love it. A little bit of blasphemy is always goes down well.
  10. [quote name='Che' timestamp='1446796576' post='2902356'] Thanks I wish I have the ability to make longer tunes without constant repeating. To be honest I just recently started recording (like EVER), and I never played with loops nor with other people so to fit more than 3 lines and longer than a minute tune is for me (at this stage) like embarking on a 'Homer-like Iliad & Odyssey journey' But if you do fancy More you can always press the Repeat button [/quote] You've got three weeks!!!!! Only joking. I totally understand. Great work.
  11. [quote name='SICbass' timestamp='1446797419' post='2902362'] treat me nice treat me good treat me like you really should 'cause i'm [s]not[/s] made of wood and i do[s]n't[/s] have a wooden heart oh.... hang on.... [/quote] Doh!!!!! You were really onto something there.
  12. [quote name='Che' timestamp='1446415036' post='2899277'] Ok lads and gals I don't know if the rules say anything about how short a piece can be, but I either have attention deficit disorder or am just a dummy learning how to do this new-to-me-recording-songs-stuff Again I enter with a short piece but will try with time to make things longer I promise Any way, like last month's art picture here too I approach this sculpture from the sculptors point of view/feeling. I do like art but I mostly enjoy the part when creating the art form be it a painting, sculpture or a tune. In this case I see this sculpture being made with a hammer and wood chisel (no chainsaw in my imagination). The sculptor is dancing around the tree trunk chiseling away piece by piece to release this monster into its new form! And here is the first entry for the month November! [b]'Sculpting the Monster Piece by Piece'[/b] [url="https://soundcloud.com/papa-dusko/sculpting-the-monster-piece-by-piece"]https://soundcloud.c...-piece-by-piece[/url] Keep em coming! [/quote] That was awesome..... Make it longer. More! More! More!!!!!!!!
  13. [quote name='Che' timestamp='1446677490' post='2901482'] I have a sculptor dancing around this sculpture hacking away chunks of wood dont tell me you cant see him?! [/quote] Yes I met him briefly.
  14. I've got a song in my head since I saw the picture but I can't think what it's got to do with the picture. It's about a heart of stone???????
  15. [quote name='Dad3353' timestamp='1446518474' post='2900008'] Here we go, then; here's my interpretation of the photo ... [url="https://soundcloud.com/dad3353/elegy-written-for-an-allergic-stump"]Elegy Written For An Allergic Stump ...[/url] Full details on the host site, so I shan't repeat here. Enjoy. [/quote] Wow.... That's a bit excellent.
  16. [quote name='Skol303' timestamp='1446399168' post='2899084'] chosen by last month's joint winner. [/quote] Nobody gave me a joint when I won a few months ago. What's goin on.
  17. It looks like a beaver swallowed a grotto. Let's get to work.
  18. Top work Jellyknees. Great track. Well deserved
  19. No issues in MY band. everybody does what they're told, or else.
  20. [quote name='blue' timestamp='1446220852' post='2897891'] Because we're not friends. Blue [/quote] Don't you start now mr Blue.
  21. [quote name='Leonard Smalls' timestamp='1446216760' post='2897832'] I doubt it... [url=http://soundcloud.com/dredd-and-the-badass-weed/unbalanced]THIS[/url] was my entry a year ago - I even got 1 vote! [/quote] That was quite cool actually.
  22. [quote name='the boy' timestamp='1446156442' post='2897447'] 13 votes so far. Not a bad turn out. [/quote] Ignore my last post. I've only realised tomorrow is the last day of voting. 13 voters is abysmal. 10 of those are the competitors. Lol.
  23. [quote name='JellyKnees' timestamp='1446115307' post='2896960'] Well I've only just spotted this thread, but what can I say? Generous, witty, entertaining, insightful and lacking the cynicism that so often permeates and sullies music reviews. A great read and, for someone who has never entered this competion lark before, most encouraging. Thanks Douglas! [/quote] +1.
  24. [quote name='Dad3353' timestamp='1446058292' post='2896607'] (Yet to be proven, though..! ) [/quote] I'm sure it would be a case easily won.
