I wrote this song in February during a blizzard, on a day when a joker in my building decided to pull the fire alarm for kicks. After the third time the alarm went off, I had to decide whether to bundle up and face the cold for a few more fruitless hours, or risk the possibility that the threat of fire was real and stay in the building despite the insistent blare of the alarm. This is the song that came about in the midst of that quandary.
No-go on this year's Listening Party. Too many commitments at home. Sorry guys. I will most certainly make it next year.
hi everyone. I want to thank Stace for getting me into this.. it's been quite a growing experience.. now I just have to clean m up :)
Mad props to Matt Parker. This RPM Jukebox desktop application he created is really nice. I like the search functionality it adds in :
It helped me locate a track that I've been looking for about five years. I had heard it once, but couldn't remember who sang it - it has a Cibo Matto feel to it :
Artist : Eri Chan
Song : Letters To The Triad
One thing I did notice is the installer made my Mcafee Browser Toolbar flip out when I tried downloading it, but it appears to be a false positive.
(I scanned the file with the full Mcafee virus scanner and also with MalwareBytes, and these didn't find anything.)
My 2017 album Moderate Rebels is added to the jukebox and downloadable here:
I'll be uploading a slightly enhanced version to alonetone shortly (next week?); some rerecorded parts, overdubs, better mix...
Burned this year's RPM projects onto CDs for my own collection. Another nail in february's coffin, though RPM 2017 won't feel officially over until the Listening Party concludes.
Between now and 2/18, I'm going to rerecord all my bass parts for the Johnny Daddy-O record using a better interface and while not feeling pressed for time. Then I'm going to redo some vocals and put some time into polishing up my solo album. Then I guess I'll be working on MINOA02 with Brent, Wilsun, and whoever else joins the cause this year.
Hope to see many of you in Portsmouth.
11 YEARS!!! Feels like it was just yesterday.
Another one done by my bother marsupials and I. Always fun, sometimes painful but ending (eventually) in love and great tunes. Special thanks to Mix Bastard for pulling us across the finish line, once again. If you get a chance to hear our tunes drop us a message, even if you don't like it - at least someone heard the tree fall.
Thanks to the crew of RPM for all their hard work and inspiration! All these years and you are still going, wow, thats fortitude.
Lastly a big thank you to my wife and children for not complaining about my absence in the month of February for the last 11 years, I LOVE YOU! One day... maybe I will grow up.
Olivia and I decided together that Mountain Laundry should be the first track of our album. It features vocals by both of us, and the lyrics set the theme well. We also both liked the song.
Apparently, nobody else likes it, because the record of recent plays on alonetone shows that song only. I assume this means everyone shuts it off during that song :(
All I wanted was to ask a question and the forum says no... Maybe I got banned.
I really just want to know if anyone knows when and where the Portsmouth Listening party will be yet.
I have a Samsung Galaxy that appatently doesn't suppprt the plug in and no computer with Internet. Any suggestions? ? I'd love to listen to the music
