well I thoroughly enjoyed this track - the bpm is perfect, I know my timing is a bit odd in this piece but you nailed it. Thank you!

Aw, now you got me starin’ at my toes, trying to find a pebble to nudge, all blushy n’ stuff…
I, uh, hope you just (cough) forgot to click the “recommend” button?
…Ah, who cares? I should just be glad you didn’t mercilessly critique MY spoken-word pella…
Thank YOU, and keep them gems a-comin’!

…Did I mention that I’m all happy now ?
…OK, yeah, I guess I did.
Just checking.

I like the vocal section that starts us off, leading into this nice bit of almost free jazz. This is a really creative melodic idea, which works well. The vocals mix well into this milieu. You really have done a good job in creating an atmosphere here—like the best underground club in the most unlikely nook in the warmest cranny of joy.

This is a really inventive mix.
I like that you’re taking chances, and passing “Go”.

Thanks! I’m always happy when my execution lives up to my intention- instead of that “well, what I was aiming for was…” feeling ;)
I figure I take a chance with every upload; I’m so used to annoying people by refusing to disdain this or that, I just do my thing, and try to stay cordial :P

The flow of the music really matches the words well. I like it a lot.

I love first 5 sec. of this so much but I’m not crazy about the electro drum (esp. the snare) that comes right in (don’t ask to offer an alternative… that kind of stuff is my biggest problem in mixes)

The rest of mix is really fantastic though (as long as that snare is pushed back)

*sigh* Fine, BE that way ;)
Hmmm, I may have to play around w/ it, see what I can come up with…

heh - hey it’s just a taste thing, other folks obviously love the thing exactly the way it is… whaddoino?

Yeah, I wuz razzing yuh a lil’ bit, but I did have that more acoustic-sounding drumkit available as a full track, I was thinking of posting it just as an alternate mix…
I’m certainly happy to see the word “fantastic” used in yer review, though :)

alternate mix is up, maybe still not yer cuppa tea, but the electro stuff went bye-bye and the drums are less in-your-face overall, plus a little stereo/EQ sculpting for s**ts n’ giggles…

That_s nice! Love your piano versus string and organ theme.
Very intense. I think you_ve found a good background for this “talking” :-).
permalink   duckett Fri, Nov 30, 2007 @ 5:56 AM
Thanks! …but there’s no organ in there, were you thinking of that “doot doot” sine bass? No matter, glad you liked it!

Great interplay between the vocals and the accompaniment. You have some good sounds in here that blend together to make the piece really come alive.

Good work!!

Why, thank you! I actually managed to exercise some self-restraint on this one ;)

Wail this here was like listenin to an exact replay of a date I had way back in the 60s with a little gal named Martha Ann Jernigan who, I kid you not, called herself Sylvia Plath Lolipop. She made me meet her in this beatnik bar called “The Furry Beaver” and while the very band you got on yor magnum opus played this very song, I thank, proceeded to reel off gawd knows what in a steady an unendin stream of conversation only there wadn’t no part for me in it. At one point I got up to use the bathroom but just left, went to another bar and started drankin. I got to feelin guilty a couple hours later and went back ta see ifn I could catch her trail to apologize and there she was, still talkin, and hadn’t missed me at all. And that’s why I ain’t no beatnik today. So I owe her that one.

Well thanks DR, it doesn’t sound like I’ll have to run out and buy you a book of Kerouac, a black turtleneck and a beret this Christmas… and I know cheap wine isn’t your style either. That’s what it was, really, I bet… Beatniks just don’t drink martinis.
Maybe little Martha/Sylvia just enjoyed Mrs. Murphy’s Ovaltine a little too much, if you catch my drift…
