Message Bookmarked
Bookmark Removed

And yes before anyone complains we can change the title, we just needed something for now.

Deadline November 30th, no limitations, originals, covers, whatever. MP3, AIFF, WAV, whatever format is best (I use Apple, FWIW), file size not an issue. E-mail files or links to me at ned at kuci dot org when you're done. We'll need cover art as always. Post if you're in.

i can start as soon as i get my mic cable resoldered. which i've been meaning to do for a few months.

i'll probably do something. i'm apparently committing to every ilx music project these days. i kind of want to try to make the most depressing christmas song i can.

congratulations (n/a), Thursday, 13 October 2011 21:46 (3 years ago) Permalink

maybe i should promise to do "cherry tree carol" so i can force myself to do something
i loathe christmas music but i love that song
and it would force me to try
and i know the song

i am going to regret this (and may need help) but can i claim that song til further notice?

Art Arfons (La Lechera), Thursday, 13 October 2011 21:48 (3 years ago) Permalink

i think we should get the entire CHILX massive together to do something, "we are the world"-style.

congratulations (n/a), Thursday, 13 October 2011 21:49 (3 years ago) Permalink

oh shit we can do "do they know it's christmas" or whatever that bullshit's called

congratulations (n/a), Thursday, 13 October 2011 21:50 (3 years ago) Permalink

One of my college roommates was very talented musically, sang in a barbershop quartet, etc. He was good at transposing songs into other keys, and one afternoon he had us all on the floor laughing/crying by singing carols as minor-key dirges.

Antonio Carlos Broheem (WmC), Thursday, 13 October 2011 21:51 (3 years ago) Permalink

my fantasy is that we all get together, have a party, get drunk, then each pick a celebrity who sang on "do they know its christmas" and try to do an imitation of that celebrity singing their line.

congratulations (n/a), Thursday, 13 October 2011 21:52 (3 years ago) Permalink

Sure, but as noted, no limitations -- if people want to do their own take on that, feel free. I figure people should post what you want to do when you've figured out the song and I'll keep a running list. And remember, do originals too if you want! No reason not to!

Ned Raggett, Thursday, 13 October 2011 22:01 (3 years ago) Permalink

Ok, tbh I'm already regretting posting that, so we'll see if I can manage to get anything at all done by Nov. 15

I'm in too, I welched on the last one mainly because I was getting hitched and had no real time but I'd love to do an Xmas song of some description.

Ah, was thinking it was time for a new 'no restrictions' compilation.

This would be ILX vol 6 wouldn't it? Or have we sacked the 'count'...

Anyroad, I have to be in this. I'm in.

Hey Ned, I sent you a recording last year that was a little too late. Is it eligible for the re-boot? I do not have a great recording set up right now, so that would be my best contribution. I can resend of course.

Alright Ned, will do.

Tom D., I do not even have a personal computer right now, just my work computer, so "not great" could have been substituted for non-existent. I am not happy about it, but perhaps Chrismtmas this year will bring some new toys ....

Really enjoying this still, especially as I get closer to being on vacation! Tom D., your tracks are really great I must say, right up my alley. I would listen to those in any context. Do you record other stuff? I mean everything on this is good/fun/rocking and many combinations of all of those things, but those tracks and the Elf With Wound song I could listen to on repeat without any complaints.
