    How 'bout this. Deadline is Midnight on December 2, 2012. PM me a link to your song, and I'll take care of getting them hosted and poasted. Happy recording!

      Just checked the thread out... looks like they don't like us over there. Why is that?

        They don't like anybody. Don't take it personally.

            Cheese Grits has a special dislike for the songwriting forum.

              Ram - are there any particular rules? I see that you just have to PM Cheese Grits a link... anything else I need to know? How does it work?

                It used to be a much larger event, but I think it's going to be pretty small this year. Usually the host puts the songs up on a web site somewhere (shorn of MP3 id tags) and puts up a poll with links to the songs. Registered HC users vote in the poll. Many people provide some commentary on the songs (more of the "attaboy" than "the second line in the bridge has too many syllables" variety) although that is not necessary/expected. In previous years there were multiple rounds of voting and different voting rules for each round (vote for all that you like, vote for your top two, vote for just one, etc.) but as the tradition is kind of dying out I'm not sure it has to be that complicated.



                At the end the host posts which songs were written by which forumite, and the winner gets to put something silly in his sig for the next year.



                FWIW I think micwalt is going to enter this one:

                  OK. I re-read that thread. I don't see anything redeeming about the whole thing.



                  To hell with them.

                    I've entered twice and enjoyed it. It's nice getting anonymous, honest feedback about your material, although at this point, I'm sure all the regulars over there can easily identify whose tune is whose. It's pretty friendly, and a good motivator for finishing up tunes.

                      Yeah. I entered last year.



                      Who knows. I may do it again, anyway. I'm a glutton for disappointment.

                        I don't like anybody either... but I like us! You gotta like us. What is up with that?

                          Each subforum of this place has its own culture. There are a couple people that hang out in GJ that have tried here and for whatever reason don't dig the vibe. They can be pretty vocal about it. I like both spots and know at least a handful of other folks that do as well.

                            OK. I submitted something anyway. It's a real rough (but fun) one track, one take, recording of the song I just (mostly) finished. The thread was titled "What Can I Say" but I've changed the song title to: "The Interview," because at the moment I feel that better describes the song (though still leaves the question, "Is this about an interview for a job, or for a male-female relationship?")



                            It's on my soundclick, if you want to listen to the latest.
