So, I threw together a quick song for the PRF Songwriting Challenge. This week’s challenge (Armageddon) was issued by last week’s winner, my dear friend, Butternut. My interpretation incorporates a bunch of found sounds tells the brief story of a couple survivors. It represents the aftermath… and the optimistic shock that often accompanies such intense overhauls.
My submission is “The Survivors”:

I finally got around to making some cover art for my EP, Loom. Now that is completed, I’ve has some CDs made, which are available for $3 bucks each. Of course, the mp3 versions are still available for a free download.
I made this using pencil, watercolors, india ink and water soluble oil pastels.

Well, it took a bit longer than expected, but I finally finished my baritone ukulele EP, Loom. It’s a collection of some of my earliest songs… The majority of them are 7 years old at this point. Needless to say, it’s been a long time coming. One million thank yous to my lovely boyfriend for recording and mixing it for me.
You can download it for FREE for a limited time, so get it while the gettin’s good.

So, it’s 11pm last Sunday. I’m watching a Dr. Who episode I’ve seen before and it suddenly strikes me that the PRF songwriting challenge is due in one hour.
So, I whipped out the ‘ol baritone uke and wrote a simple, little ditty in about 20 minutes, recorded in 2 takes , with 1 mic and ended up tying for first place. Woo hoo! I’m kind of a winner!
The challenge was the write a song that somehow has to do with vegetables. Here is a link to the whole week’s entries:
Mine is titled: Iamnotavegetable

I’m a podcast lover, fiend, addict, whatever title you want to slap on. I just can’t get enough. They are an intregal part of my workflow and one of the primary ways I keep up with news, entertainment and business stuff. Long live the podcast.
The Fader magazine podcast is my new favorite addition to the podcast collection.
It features great new artists from a variety of genres. I can already see many more CD purchases in my future.
