Okay, I've replaced both tie rod ends and realigned one car (and cleaned brake pads and caliper).  Replaced the power steering line in another.  And fixed the radio (for the wife) in another.  Cold, wet, sore, and tired.

So, since I couldn't work, I came in and spent an hour warming up.  And then decided I wanted to hear the new speakers.  Have to say, I'm very pleased with them.  Way more volume than I need, and the sound is great.  I'll be ordering another pair...

But, after spending a while getting all dressed up, and tools and jacks together, I got started on the vehicles.  But, at +4 and wind at 40mph gusting to 50, it didn't take long crawling around on the snowy/icy driveway to just give it up.  Maybe tomorrow...

October ODC - The Start
« on: October 07, 2017, 02:38:17 AM »
Well, well, well....

It's challenge time....

It's October....

Sooooooo......

It should be halloween themed right?

Nah..... :P

Too easy....

Been there, done, that, bought the digital download....

Hey!
Don't blame me!
I tried to slough this off :P

Just kidding.... I'm terrible at this....
If I had any inspiration I wouldn't need the ODC to kick my ass into writing songs every month lol

Hmmm...now there's an idea.....

You always hear people say they have trouble starting something...whether it's a song, a letter, a lawnmower...

This month's challenge is to write and record a new song (starting ...now!) about the start of something.....
It can be anything - doesn't matter what - starting an engine, starting a new life, starting to change, starting a job - whatever you pick, the song MUST contain the word START (spoken or sung or whispered or screamed or shouted or mumbled) at least once.... and the song must be about starting....or not starting....something :D
And in keeping with recent events - the song should sound like something Tom Petty would record.....

No time limits,  no restrictions on instrumentation, no restrictions on loops/samples etc........
You may request a "guest" artiste on your track without stopping them from entering their own track...the only restriction is that they shouldn't be involved in the "writing" of the song - that would make it a collaboration and exclude them from entering their own track...
As always...a collaboration only has one entrant vote, the creator of other tracks has the only entrant vote (session musicians have no input)
Tactical voting by session artists will be punishable by red hot pokers and The Comfy Chair.....

Instrumentals welcome, but don't forget the "start" word stipulation...

Entries shall close midnight on the 28th of October 2017 wherever you are in the world..... so get started!

Good theme Neilmac.

Only one question from me. What is the other artist meant to do to your track that doesn't form some kind of collaboration?

Do you mean like if the songs all written and recorded, someone else can jump in and add a van halen solo on top?

Yes  :P sort of.....
What I mean is YOU write the song.....You alone....
Guest artistes or session players do not contribute lyrics, melody or ideas which change the song....
They just play what you tell them to play.....
