    • I was creative director of an advertising agency for many years, so here here is my opinion for what it's worth.   Go with #1: It's easy to read, the font had a bit of an edge, and the horizontal layout works well for the web.   #2 has those designs at the top that distract from the name, and number 3 is too hard to read.
    • Damn This Field   Lyrics/Music: Paul Canuck a.k.a. Paul Tarle Copyright 2014 Tennyson Road Music   Damn this field! Ploughing is rough In this wind, in this dust Damn you, field! You never offered a crop Worth this work and this fuss   Hold on, Bess! Don't hurt yourself! Ten furrows left Won't be long now We'll unhook this plow   Curse this land! For burning these hands, Sticking knives in my knees Curse you, land! If it's pain you demand You should be righteously pleased   Woah there, Jess My God you sweat! Just eight rows left Won't be long now You'll get some rest...   ........... Damn this field For taking Pa Still see him slumped over And for muffling the shout Of his heart giving out In the weeds in your corner   Woah there girls Don't go down in these furrows Just six rows left Won't be long now You'll get your rest...   Damn you, field! You never upheld Your end of the bargain Damn you to hell! Next to nothing to sell Come the freezing this Autumn   Hold on Bess It's not you I address It won't be long now No, it won't be long now We'll get you some rest We'll get you some rest...
    • There is something I really like about this There is something I really don't like about this   I think both things are the lead guitar is playing in a different key than the song is written in.   Interesting piece Paul
    • What's not to like? Great hook/title. I love the vocals and harmonies esp. Liked the delayed guitar lines and chord progs. OK, might be a tad too long but otherwise no nits from me.   Good work Paul
