Not bad for two months, folks. Not freakin' bad at all.

The black is now my second favorite MeFi location, after the green. The only disappointment I have is that I can't check it every two hours and have a dozen new songs, as I can with the other sites.

I've been waiting until I get a microphone to do some new recording, but since everyone seems to enjoy the amateur recordings, myself included, I might have to join the fun with my [shudder, gasp] PowerBook internal mic.

Keep it coming, everyone!

Jesus, I had no idea -- keep in mind that is with a 1 post per day limit after the first week.

I had been thinking about it, but then I got behind and Music suddenly got busy and, damn, 500 was already spoken for.

I once spent two hours getting a tattoo while the artist listened to that Proclaimers album, over and over and over.

So, three times?

And that album wasn't bad. Melodic folkpop, some toe-tappers, nice compositions across the board. The next one, though—ech.

cortex, I think you should write a song about every single post in the blue. And also the grey. And the green:

My Computer Crashed
My computer crashed
and all my files are ash
please won't you help me resurrect
my files?

My Boyfriend Is A Jerk
My boyfriend is a jerk
He will not go to work
And Tuesday I caught him sleeping with my Mom.
Do you think I should dump him?

Also, you should write a song about every single comment on Metafilter.

Not Bad For Two Months
Not Bad For Two Months, Folks
Not Freakin' Bad At All
When The Music Comes A-Callin'
You Know You Better Return The Call.

And then you should write a song about writing songs about Metafilter:

MetaMusic
Meta, Meta
Meta MetaMusic
Meta, Meta
Meta MetaMusic
I Love MetaMusic.

And so do I. Kudos to all who have uploaded tracks.

p.s.: French Fry, I dug the Scooby Doo Track.
