Ha,ha @Dakoda  :D 
We are making a song but I'm not sure if I can finish it. We keep having snowstorms (Nor' easters ...they're called) here and thus had a few days without electricity. Karma slowing us down, perhaps.  ;)

@Bill from November Sound
 I don't know about Karma , my money's on sabotage , most likely one the IT'ers in here with mad hacking skills (now who does that sound like?)
 also it only takes a few dollars on the dark web to take out a power grid in rural New England for a few days (you should be very paranoid!  ;D)

 lack of brain electricity , causing writers block is the only acceptable excuse in a songwriters forum, lack of electricity for your instruments doesn't cut it  :D
 whats wrong with Stylophone, drums and vocal , ha!..  ;)
Dakoda.
 
 
so rap, hip-hop and the rest , you've had your day .. move along now.

Is it too late to throw my hat in the ring on this?  I know I haven't been around much lately - life seems to insist on making recording music near impossible, but I have been keeping track of the newsletters and some of the new tracks I see up on Soundcloud and I have missed this place!  I was inspired to join because of the theme, and the way that I wanted to express it was with a re-recording of one of the first songs I have ever written in my songwriting 2.0 phase of my life and it fits the theme perfectly in my mind.  Might as well come back with a bang, right?  I'll post the song in the review section either way, but I am excited to share and see all of you guys alive and well and creative as always!


So I'm new obviously, just wondering how the whole voting works. Thanks
~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.

Hey Rich ( @Bluedusksun ),

Short after the competition finish, I'll set up a voting poll. All contestants must vote, and voting for self is not allowed (our software keeps track of that). Of course every other kitchener is encouraged to vote as well  ;)
The poll is an advanced one, the voters will have a certain amount of 'points', and the points can be spread over the available options (huge list this time)..
The entry that collected the most points will win.. See previous competition result threads to get a 'feel'.
I hope that helped!

Cheers,
:mart:

@Mar T.

Thank you for the explanation :).

To be honest, it's just fun to be apart of something. Heralding motivation will always be a noble endeavor indeed. If only collaboration had such press, maybe music itself would take on a new meaning?

I just like to have all the facts at hand, figured it would be easier to just ask instead of going hunting for them. Much love

~Rich

Hi all, due to 'some discussion'  ;) we've some trouble figuring out who's in and who isn't. Behind the scenes we're solving that problem.
For that reason the voting thread will be upped a bit later than you're used from us, but I'll keep y'all posted.. Ok?
Thanks all for joining and WHAT a list of contestants so far! Chapeau!
Cheers!
