Pleasant Surprises

June 8, 2017

During Nur Ein XII Mike and Ben from Wisconsin started The New Ugly podcast.

They drank, Ben listened to the songs for the first time, and they argued a lot. I stopped listening after I was eliminated. I posted my songs to the "Ohne Ruhm (Without Glory)" area, and thought nobody was listening. 


Mike left a comment that he liked "Elevator Men", and wanted to remix it. So I listened to the podcast for that episode. They played my song, and didn't hate it. They played "A Sense of the Absurd/ Essence of Theo's Bird" and didn't hate it. They played "Regime Change/ Regina Chang" and Ben voted it the best song of the round.


Mike and Jan "jast" Krueger both remixed "Elevator Men". The remixes were played at the beginning of the "Excuse Me" podcast. [They're also on my "album" page.] Ben voted my "Excuse Me" the worst song of the round. I approached the song as a mental challenge on the verses, using only the vowel A. I forgot that songs are about showing and evoking emotion. Sigh. On the bridge, where I *DID* express emotion, they both suddenly stopped making comments. 


The final pleasant surprise was getting an email from Neil Connor. He took some of my lyrics from FAWM 2017 and made a very cool song "Millionaire". [This is also on my "album" page.]
