Pronouns: I would like to try out they/them. Please use them if you get the chance.

No plans for what I'll be writing. Except for this paragraph, this bio section hasn't been updated since FAWM.

I seem to have somehow landed on a fallen angel theme. Some facts about this persona:
Good
Pure
Sexless
Scary
Beautiful voice
Badass warrior
Hates God/ parents/ authority
Trapped in Hell after being trapped in Heaven
Maybe going slightly crazy

And if you're wondering how someone can be good and also hate God: in this context, God is the angel's abuser, so it's better for them to hate him than the alternative.

Not all my songs will slot right into this theme, because I'm not writing a concept album, just whatever comes to me, but expect it to come up a lot.

PSA: It takes me as long to compose a comment as a song. I don't know why. I seem to do all right in the forums, but I fear I will never join the Century Club.
This is by way of a roundabout apology to everyone, especially fellow skirmishers. I do go 'round and listen to all the participants, I just generally don't have several hours for commenting.

I thought maybe that was it, but I wanted to make sure I wasn't missing something..I call myself Cindyrella because 30 years ago I put an ad in a newspaper, with many other single people. I quickly wrote down that Cindyrella is looking for her Prince. He answered because Prince is his last name. And mine :)

Hi, Complex. Yes, I've been around for long enough that I've written a few songs to a prompt. Tends to make me more anxious than inspired, but I have got a good song or two out of it.

[avatar]

Thanks for the "Space Trax!" cue, feels like a great pull and I'm excited to get started on it.

Hi. I'm home now. What do I need to do for Cinderella?

Hi. I am leaving for Georgia this morning to see my new Grandson and will be gone 5 days. I will check back on this. I know most of these songs from watching Cinderella as a girl.

Thanks for the idea to move the “I enjoy being a girl” discussion into its own forum. Did just that https://fiftyninety.fawm.org/forums/145 . Let’s see if it creates more feedback that way. At least it won’t clutter the other forum. 😃

Thank you :)))

I'm sorry, I didn't mean to hurt you! I was just trying to find a solution for you to join the challenge.

[avatar]

Thanks for pulling me that Dickens! If you look up The Quack Doctor's proclamation on Youtube you'll find us, and also Thee Droods Rose's song and Mr Flam, and the song of the wreck. Hope you enjoy it!

[avatar]

Happy Non-Binary Day to you!
I know what you mean about a song having a mind of its own. This last one of mine definitely grabbed the reins and all I could do was hang on. Thanks for listening!

Hi! For the harmony singers challenge, can you send the file to dawnplanton0@gmail.com please

@nadine

Thank you, I'll try!

@jlampson

I would absolutely love to play on a song of yours! Think of picking one of my guitars the same as me grabbing "Something from the Shelf"!

My ability to functionally sing/mix/instrument feels pretty low, but I'm totally happy to collaborate and have folks cover my songs. (I specialize in improvised acapella, so a lofi and/or acapella cover is totally fine.) If you want to do "Being Here, Being Queer," please do! Also, please feel free to tweak some of the language to better suit you, as appropriate. I hope it is fun! 😀

I think Pinterest is too confusing for me. Guess I'll pass on the challenge. I like the pictures as inspiration though

[avatar]

Great! Thanks. Done.

[avatar]

Hi I have written lyrics for the harmony song challenge that you are doing the melody for. What is the best way to get those to you? @beacon said to send to you. Liz

On a desktop, (at least with a wide enough monitor) there's "Trending Tags..." "Recent Discussion..." "Songs to Check Out..." and sometimes "Who To Follow..." It looks like you normally see two or three of these, but which two or three... I'm not sure about the logic there.

"Who to Follow" seems based upon a second degree of separation, so somebody someone-I-follow follows (I follow Apple who follows Berry. Recommend Berry.), or somebody who follows someone I also follow. (Both I and Cherry follow Apple. Recommend Cherry.) It might be based upon only one of these. I'm not sure and since that section disappears sometimes, I can't easily check.

On a narrow display (and basically all mobile displays) all of those side panels disappear, so I'm not surprise you've never seen them.

I hope you have a great 50/90! 😀
