  • Writing For Fun Website I'm Hooked On

    Hi everyone,
    If anyone on here enjoys writing for fun my friend just put together this little site that I've been pretty hooked for the last couple of days. It's basically like that old game where someone writes something and then it gets passed on and continues. There is a 1,000 character limit and you can either start your own or build on what others have done. They also have a thing where when you start you can either allow people to read everything written up to that point or just the last few words from the previous post.

    It's a lot of fun, but the user base is small and it'd be that much more fun if more people were in on it so, here we are. If anyone is interested, please give it a shot.

    and here is a link to the one that I started in case having somewhere specific to launch is helpful. I used the "folded" option so it's just the last couple of words. I think I probably prefer the other way, but I thought it would be fun to see how it came out this way.

  • Another Music Game - Best Song Ever For....

    After talking about it yesterday, it's been stuck in my head. So, my answer is the Mortal Kombat theme. All of them. Every situation. Mortal Kombat.
    When I make up the playlist, I'll just put in the Mortal Kombat theme 22 times in a row.

    @Travis I spent about 3 hours racking my brain to find songs to fit those questions.  I changed my basketball answer though - and for the Cotton Bowl one, for some reason in my head I was picturing the Hollywood Bowl.  So I deleted that answer & left it blank for now.  Does the band still need to be alive?  If not, I *might* have an answer.
    The way I see it, it's literally any song. No alive/dead restrictions. If memory serves they actually talked about that directly when it came to the Cotton Bowl tune. Even if they saw it the other way I feel that it's fair game given the spirit of the exercise. I think of it as simply "what is the best choice" which I figure would open up everything.
  • What music are you streaming?

    In one of those periods where Songs:Ohia is speaking to me a little too much. Might be time to up my shrink visits. Hey, maybe if I try it out I'll finally get Beck's Morning Phase.

    Also, thanks for posting the live Sloan videos, @cdrive. I'm looking forward to checking them out, I just want to be able to really watch them and we're slammed at work (tax season). Thanks dude!
  • What music are you streaming?

    It's a podcast, but a really interesting one about music so I thought it wouldn't be too inappropriate to drop this in here. Chuck Klosterman and Chris Ryan started this pod recently (exclusive to Spotify) called Music Exists and it's totally good. They chat about concepts from a more "1,000 foot view" perspective. For instance, the first episode was sort of built around the question "What if Creed had come out with the buzz that Radiohead did? Would we experience their music differently?" I love those guys and this is stuff is right in their wheelhouses. Totally recommend it.
