Did I say that? Oh no! I must be in then!!!


I need to speak to my lawyer!  ;D
If you like novels with a musical theme, why not try 'Sixth Beatle - When Music Changed The World', easily found on Amazon and Google. It is amazing, although as the author I may be biased!


I have permission from @Bluedusksun to cover one of his excellent songs. Looking forward to getting stuck in! Dan

I am seriously in doubt about this.
The period I Ďll be at home (this period will start two weeks from now) is 5 or 6 weeks and I hear the count down already for the most intriguing collaboration in the Kitchen ever. If this one takes off, and I sincerely hope so, you will be wondering why on earth youíve let this chance go and why you didnít think of it yourself. OK, enough of this modesty.

So:
- I wonít make and post a cover
- Iíll listen to all entries when Iím home (when traveling I canít promise anything)
- Iíll vote
- if there is a Kitchener who wants to give a swing at my few entries here, you have my permission of course

@the management
Perhaps I can ask you the following:
- if we all are winners, is there a reason not to publish all winners?
- last challenge 10 entries. Is the frequency too high maybe?
Kind regards, Gus

hey LePlongeur, I'm not part of the management but I'll wade in anyway  :)
I think the last challenge wasn't the best idea ever (and it was my idea, ha!)
it didn't have very wide appeal. I had several ideas and that one was the one "I" least wanted to do, Ha!
(I didn't even get my own entry finished in the end.)
My opinion is the challenges are not too frequent, they are not frequent enough!
We now have two months to cover someone elses song , which for me, isn't "the most" creative writing experience
but if it's a way to attract the most entrants then it's all good.
(I think there should be a genuine song "writing" challenge , in "parallel" with the cover challenge to cater for folks
who refuse to do covers).

I don't do covers myself, have never tried to interpret someone else's song ever, not once, could be a complete disaster
(you can see I'm starting on a positive note!) but @Leonard Scaper has given me permission to have at one of his
creations, so I'm giving it a go.

seeing my name published in the top 5, or not listed as the case maybe , is meaningless this time round.
with a foundation of a leonard scaper song under me, I'm aiming for at least an invitation to the Grand Ole Opry
and being inducted into the hall of fame....

and now I'm back to feeling the pressure! ahh balls what have I done!!!

C'mon @MrBouzouki surely you, of all kitcheners, would want to join this one?  ;)

Okay @Dakoda ... when you do get invited to the Grand Old Opry ... I say you start your set with "Ode to Depeche Mode" ... for splash and dash ya know?!  :blackgrin:


I actually don't know anything about the grand ole opry ... I just have this funny image in my mind.  :D They only want country music but you surprise them with your #Nu80's coolness  :D

 Thanks @Bill from November Sound for putting that Blues Brothers movie in my head, now I'm going to have to fish that one out tonight and give it a watch again ..
 when I really should be buckling down to trying to at least trying to start my challenge entry. I see "your" name on the list, will you be announcing who your covering ahead of time,
 or playing your cards close to your chest? (I'd love to hear your missus singing on "an Ode To Depeche Mode"!!!! and I'm not even joking....)  :)

Hey my friend, that's absolutely correct! All we want to achieve with this challenge is to:
-Encourage the community getting to know each other (and each others music) better
-Enjoy how different one's song can sound when processed (in whatever way) by a fellow kitchener

So yes! Looking forward to your result man! You in?

Cheers!
:mart:


You're all nuts.  ::Hoss::

So I asked somebody if I could cover their song, if they say yes I'll be in. Really trying to carve the time for music making with so much going on, but I find the odd hour or two here and there and if we really have 2 months to work on this I think I can make something work.

~Rich
We are the music makers,
And we are the dreamers of dreams,
Wandering by lone sea-breakers,
And sitting by desolate streams;ó
World-losers and world-forsakers,
On whom the pale moon gleams:
Yet we are the movers and shakers
Of the world for ever, it seems.
