Hi all! Thanks @Dutchbeat for updating the contestant list while I was celebrating the Dutch 'Carnaval' this weekend (and drinking way too much 'wasser-mit-bier-geschmack'.

Wow 12 contestants already, that's fantastic!! Glad to announce @Goatrelated and I are entering this comp together, so we're in as well! We'll post our entry (to be recorded yet) in the last week of the contest.

Still a month to go, so if you're interested, join this challenge, there's room for another few kitcheners wanting to try this.. Feel welcome!!

Cheers kitcheners!
:mart:

@Mar T.  - looking forward hearing what you come up with. Any special reason to post not before the last week? Could that be an extra requitrement for the competition? Or is it better to post as early as possible, even in the Ip (in progress) phase?
Cheers
Dick

Hey @oorlab , simple reason: I'm going to record it a week before the deadline; @Goatrelated , @Dutchbeat and I will meet then.. And I'm going to collab with Goatie!

About timing of posting results: I'd always post as soon as the work is in a listenable state (so the poster gets feedback that may be of help), but thats subjective of course..

Cheers!

I don't think I have ever written a positive song. I don't think ever will either. lol

~Rich 
We are the music makers,
And we are the dreamers of dreams,
Wandering by lone sea-breakers,
And sitting by desolate streams;
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.

I said the very same thing @Bluedusksun ......I found that there are subtle ways around the rules.  ;) I wrote mine as an extremely positive outcome to a not so positive situation. I found the exercise to be very rewarding.

Come on, man....give it a shot.  :) :) :)
