Deep Sub-Reddit Song Fight song posted

This post is a little overdue:  the "Deep Sub-Reddit" songs have been posted at Song Fight, including Jerkatorium's entry.  Check it out at, and if you like it then please vote for it.  Again, you don't need to register or anything - I think the only condition is that you have to vote for at least two songs.  It's a good group this time around, and well worth a listen.  If you are a fan of MC Frontalot and know his song "Yellow Lasers", then you might get a real kick out of Abjure's entry this week too.

The next Song Fight title is "Unsubscribe", and Chumpy and I are working on a song for that one too.  The due date is coming up pretty soon and I have conflicting work travel, so I should be on GarageBand right now instead of updating this blog.

CoverFight: Enjoy the Silence by Depeche Mode

Okay it's been a while, but it's been busy and there are things to show for it.

First off, the Depeche Mode CoverFight songs have been posted at:

I think Jerkatorium's entry for "Enjoy the Silence" turned out pretty good.  Other than the guitar and vocal parts, it is entirely composed of computer instruments and loops.  Best of all, I didn't sing on it. Okay I sang the backing vocals, but the lead vocal talent is Chumpy.  

As I understand it, the CoverFight is not really a "fight".  There is no voting or anything, just listening and enjoying, and (for the SongFight participants anyway) harshing each other on the boards.

In other news, this morning Jerkatorium submitted an entry for the "Deep Sub-Reddit" SongFight.  The songs for that Fight won't be posted for at least another few days, and I'll let you know when that happens.  99% of the Deep Sub-Reddit submission was by Chumpy; all I did were a couple syllables of backing vocals, a little bit of computer instrument work, and some level adjustments.  I do not say that to distance myself from the song, but rather to give credit where credit is due.  Deep Sub-Reddit is Jerkatorium's best entry to date, and it's mostly Chumpy.

I submitted art for that Fight.  I'm not sure if they're going to use it or not, but here it is:
