  1. Did you catch the latest lyric from kuya? If you or I wrote something like that the mods would threaten to remove us.  

  2. I think you may have just opened yourself to some feminine blood letting.. Dude, you can't treat a woman like some disease infested tramp.
  3. Sounds like suicidal death metal and it is quite disturbing. It is a shame that someone who breathes longs to end that breathing. Even worse, is to solicit others to join you. Not into this kind of song. Cannot leave any words of encouragement.
  4. Overall a nice song. The ch was especially excellent and really brought me into the song. You have a nice singing voice. My only problem was that I could not make out many of the words so it was hard for me to follow the story. Maybe you could post the lyrics.
  5. Lesson 1/6: A man is getting into the shower just as his wife is finishing up her shower, when the doorbell rings. The wife quickly wraps herself in a towel and runs downstairs. When she opens the door, there stands Bob, the next-door neighbor. Before she says a word, Bob says, ‘I’ll give you $800 to drop that towel.’ After thinking for a moment, the woman drops her towel and stands naked in front of Bob, after a few seconds, Bob hands her $800 and leaves. The woman wraps back up in the towel and goes back upstairs. When she gets to the bathroom, her husband asks, ‘Who was that?’ ‘It was Bob the next door neighbor,’ she replies. ‘Great,’ the husband says, ‘did he say anything about the $800 he owes me?’ Moral of the story: If you share critical information pertaining to credit and risk with your shareholders in time, you may be in a position to prevent avoidable exposure. Lesson 2/6: A priest offered a Nun a lift. She got in and crossed her legs, forcing her gown to reveal a leg. The priest nearly had an accident. After controlling the car, he stealthily slid his hand up her leg. The nun said, ‘Father, remember Psalm 129?’ The priest removed his hand. But, changing gears, he let his hand slide up her leg again. The nun once again said, ‘Father, remember Psalm 129?’ The priest apologized ‘Sorry sister but the flesh is weak.’ Arriving at the convent, the nun sighed heavily and went on her way. On his arrival at the church, the priest rushed to look up Psalm 129. It said, ‘Go forth and seek, further up, you will find glory.’ Moral of the story: If you are not well informed in your job, you might miss a great opportunity. Lesson 3/6: A sales rep, an administration clerk, and the manager are walking to lunch when they find an antique oil lamp. They rub it and a Genie comes out. The Genie says, ‘I’ll give each of you just one wish.’ ‘Me first! Me first!’ says the admin clerk. ‘I want to be in the Bahamas , driving a speedboat, without a care in the world.’ Puff! She’s gone. ‘Me next! Me next!’ says the sales rep. ‘I want to be in Hawaii , relaxing on the beach with my personal masseuse, an endless supply of Pina Coladas and the love of my life.’ Puff! He’s gone. ‘OK, you’re up,’ the Genie says to the manager. The manager says, ‘I want those two back in the office after lunch.’ Moral of the story: Always let your boss have the first say. Lesson 4/6: An eagle was sitting on a tree resting, doing nothing. A small rabbit saw the eagle and asked him, ‘Can I also sit like you and do nothing?’ The eagle answered: ‘Sure, why not.’ So, the rabbit sat on the ground below the eagle and rested. All of a sudden, a fox appeared, jumped on the rabbit and ate it. Moral of the story: To be sitting and doing nothing, you must be sitting very, very high up. Lesson 5/6: A turkey was chatting with a bull. ‘I would love to be able to get to the top of that tree’ sighed the turkey, ‘but I haven’t got the energy.’ ‘Well, why don’t you nibble on some of my droppings?’ replied the bull. ‘They’re packed with nutrients.’ The turkey pecked at a lump of dung, and found it actually gave him enough strength to reach the lowest branch of the tree. The next day, after eating some more dung, he reached the second branch. Finally after a fourth night, the turkey was proudly perched at the top of the tree. He was promptly spotted by a farmer, who shot him out of the tree. Moral of the story: Bull Sh*t might get you to the top, but it won’t keep you there.. Lesson 6/6: A little bird was flying south for the winter. It was so cold the bird froze and fell to the ground into a large field. While he was lying there, a cow came by and dropped some dung on him. As the frozen bird lay there in the pile of cow dung, he began to realize how warm he was. The dung was actually thawing him out! He lay there all warm and happy, and soon began to sing for joy. A passing cat heard the bird singing and came to investigate. Following the sound, the cat discovered the bird under the pile of cow dung, and promptly dug him out and ate him. Morals of the story: (1) Not everyone who sh*ts on you is your enemy. (2) Not everyone who gets you out of sh*t is your friend. (3) And when you’re in deep sh*t, it’s best to keep your mouth shut! Share this with your friends who needs a laugh today.

  7. Nice jazzy blues number. Easy listening, well produced and arranged. Loved the guitar solo.
  8. Kind of all over the place. Her and the moon somehow not piquing my interest especially the way this lyric has been constructed.
  9. To be quite honest, I didn't hear a melody. Seems like a very short song that just ends. i didn't pick up any rhythm and the song moved like it was going through stop signs.
  10. Hi Emily. I'm gonna stick my neck out and possibly get it chopped off by messing with your lyric a little. Just want to give you my ideas...not that they're all that good. Joey: I don't think this is Emily's lyric.
  11. Thanks all for your comments. It is a fascinating story and a testament to the extreme limits of where the human mind will take one. Realrush, I'm envisioning a spoken ballad as I believe the focus should be on the story. I guess a couple of people suggested giving the historical significance early but I think the "what" factor in the end is more effective.
  12. My take on this one is that v1 sounds more like the ch. If this is a love rebound story it should be more focused rather than using stage fright as a metaphor.
  13. I think the ch is good but the v's seem to lack focus. This seemed like a trilogy without an ending ch. The sentiments are touching but maybe this went too long and in too many directions.
  14. Nice job.
  15. Look, send the entries to me. I've got nothing in the pipeline. I can copy and paste. The only change I will ask is with the scoring. I think Spanish's idea is a good one and it forces voters to pick one favorite. I'm inclined to allow an option of 2 choices but each one will only be given a 1/2 point score. I need to keep the scoring simple cause too many numbers make me dizzy. I can start taking entries as early as tomorrow if there are no objections.
