Well then.  Had to go do some work at a school this evening, and got wrapped up in their Christmas Party.  One of the students was performing.  Acoustic, electric, and slide.  Not a bad player or singer.

They offered food, but I had to work on stuff...

When the site got hacked a couple months or so ago, that was wiped out.  Song files, software, everything.  Now I have to rebuild a facility for that, but I don't have copies of all the archived songs...

In the "Additional Menu" above the shoutbox, Red, you'll see an option for "ODC Archives".  That was a place I set up to store archives from all our ODC challenges...

all the best papaG.
as for the archives, I did a fair bit in creating them originally. Did we get them from old Soundclick pages? If I get time, I will see what still exists out there...

Because Neil asked for it...
« on: October 03, 2017, 07:45:32 PM »
Well, Neil, turned out to be a busy day, but I finally grabbed a minute for this.  I have no idea where I should have gone from that shoutbox beginning, but this is what my fingers did.  I'm not claiming it's good or usable.  Use it, use parts of it, use it as a starting point, or just pretend you didn't see it...  :-*


Well it’s 2017 and I’m watching the screen
But the news blows me away
Arguing, fighting, talkin’ bout war
And it gets worse every day

I see people protesting
And the cops arresting
Everybody who doesn’t comply
Things have gone from good
To bad to worse
In the twinkling of an eye

Now they say there's no such thing as fake news
And no such thing as lies
That everything now is alternative facts
But it's time you realize

That watching the news
I can only conclude
The world we know
.........is screwed

Left or right it doesn’t really matter
Why can’t we just agree
We should do the right thing
Instead of always getting caught
Between the devil and the deep blue sea

It seems to me that it should be so easy
For us all to just get along
Because in the end, and this is just my opnion
For whatever that might be worth
You and me and everybody else
Are all just citizens
..........of the planet Earth
A computer once beat me at chess, but as it turns out it was no match for me at kickboxing...

Just came from a little thing I did in the shoutbox, Ag, and Neil said it should be a song.  So I spent a full 3-4 minutes on it.  And it shows.  (-!)

Basically, it's not for anything.  Just kicks and grins...  ;)

Nicely done Joom!
I can't decide between an AcDc, Motörhead, Metallica/Maiden/Priest/Hawkwind or Sabbath style toon.... lol
I'll mess around till something sticks like usual I guess lol
Unless you had a feeling in mind when you scribbled it  ;D

Ags,  get that Epi LP fired up.....you're doing kick ass solos on this.....
It's either that or drums  :P

If I had to pick, Neil, it would be either an AcDc or Sabbath style.  But I learned a long time ago that great things can come from different ideas...

Hmmm, Sabbath huh?
I kinda like that idea.....

If we're gonna go that route then we definitely need to rope in the @Smurf for the drums.....

I like that, Neil.  Just enough of a dirty/gritty/aggressive feel to it that a song like this needs.

Can't wait to hear the vocal match to the tune...
