Ag................
I think it's cute
When you salute
It seems to suit
Your attribute
I know that others
Might dispute
But they know
I don't give a hoot
Cause all in all
It's kinda cute

I'm sure he could, Ag, but it won't take long once I can get to it.  Just figured I'd get all the paid for website work I'm behind on done first.  4 business website updates to do, one new one to build, and set up a new student computer lab at a school...

Aw, crap.  You mentioned "business" and it reminded me I have to let a few know I should be able to do some work this week.  Don't know if I'm ever going to get a chance to rebuild the TTM main site...  :(

October 2018 ODC - Hallo Halloween
« on: October 01, 2018, 12:34:04 AM »
Since G-Boi chickened out of a formal vote......it falls to me to put the next Challenge in motion....

I guess I out-county'd the King Of Country....now that's scary....
(either that or he just felt sorry for me)
(OR he was just too darned lazy to type up the challenge)

Speaking of scary....it's October once again :)

I think it's been a while since we had a scary challenge, hasn't it?
(It's been at least a year)
(Not counting any time I do Country)

Sooooo....write a scary or horror themed  tune...instrumental or song....suitable for a Halloween Theme.....easy huh?
No...using a picture of Gboy in a speedo for the cover does not count as making a scary song...

It can be comic or serious, loud or quiet, good or Country bad....

Whatever you want, as long as it fits the Halloween theme :)

Extra accordions wins bonus points. **

Upload your entries to the S/C account by close of day 26th October 2018....

Good luck boys and girls!


** Bonus points can be redeemed for Saskatchewan Air Miles at a rate of 1 point = 1/50,000th of an air mile. Only valid for travel within Saskatchewan. Must be over the age of 105 and obtain both grandparent's written permission to participate.

Simple laziness on my part. And fear of losing to an easterner. The humility would have been unbearable  ::)

My mp3 for Oct ODC is on SC. There are still 2 from Sept but I didn't want to remove them for fear of loss (they were so good).
Here's a video of my tune I made for You Tube.

An evil creature in the twilight groping
Snapped blindly at his face.   
He screeched in terror, and strightway
Something clawed evil from an oak coffin, and stood bent and doubled,
To shamble at him, zigzag, squat and bestial.

 
Headlong he charged down the dark path,
Then falls with roaring brain in agony. 
And blots of green in his eyes.
Then the slow, cold fingers groping at his neck,
He feels the strangling clasp of death.

It is midnight and all the graves are opening.
The foulest of foul fiends is the first to rise
The other ghouls follow
The are hungry...They are looking for you
Are you a living thing?
What a pity we can't know in advance who the spoiling minority are!

Ever experience the feeling of dajavue ?
I’m out and thing is I really wanted to start a come back on this one . Time is flying by and I’m still doing projects that distract me .
That dang recording desk project is another thing I’m behind on and that’s one crucial things I need done for music but I have get the entertainment center done .

It’s taken a ton of time and will take more only because I have no shop and doing this stuff outdoors kind of sucks .

I almost have the inside perimeter done another week at least then the shelving which are more like beams . I have a hard time lifting the small ones by myself let alone the larger ones .

Thing is I don’t have help often and I have to take them out one at a time and sand them raise the grain let dry and repeat . Then start the staining process. Flipping these things over on a saw horse will challenging lol

When it comes time clear coat that ensues more time 2 day drying per side then sand recoat weather permitting so say a week for each one if I have help handling them .

Please winter hold off lol

How do I get myself into these things 😑

Kicking it old school this month :P

Dragged out the Epi Les Paul Special and the JT Strat for this one :D

Welcome To Hell

Welcome to the night where the dead walk,
Welcome to the darkness where the demons stalk.
They walk among us, it's not a dream,
Things that go bump in the night aren't always what they seem.

Don't be scared,
Don't be afraid,
This is Halloween,
Welcome to Hell.

What was that? Is it you?
The hand of fear takes hold of you.
Squeezing you tight in it's icy claws,
Closer and closer, the darkness draws.

Don't be scared,
Don't be afraid,
This is Halloween,
Welcome to Hell.
