New Jerkatorium song "Forty Three Hours" posted at

Our submission for the "Forty Three Hours" Song Fight is posted at:

Check it out, and if you like the song please vote for it.  Chumpy and I had a rare opportunity to work together in person on this one, if only for a few hours.  I am extremely happy with the song, but I can't help but think that the song could have been even better if we'd had more time together to work on it some more.

I don't have any topical photos for this post, so here's a huge metal fish I saw last weekend:

New song "Crustacean Stretch Receptor"! And Jerkatorium won the "Super Creepy" Song Fight!

Holy moly it has been a month already and somehow I forgot to mention the song we completed in mid-September:  Crustacean Stretch Receptor.  It is not a Song Fight entry.  Instead it was born of an inspiration Chumpy had, which is sort of peripherally related to a previous "Side Fight" (but never meant for submission to a Song Fight or Side Fight).  Chumpy wrote most of the song last year, and we would tinker with it a little here and there every few months between Song Fights.  Last month we decided to put the final touches on it and send it out into the world for your enjoyment.  I'm wild about it.  You can hear it here:

Jerkatorium won the "Super Creepy" Song Fight with 19 votes (5 more votes than our nearest competitor).  I am very happy with this win because it was a strong fight, and I enjoyed most of our competitors' song submissions.  If you haven't already heard them you can check out all of the creeptastic entries at:

And I know I shouldn't really care about this, but I'm also happy about this win because we hadn't won a Song Fight since the "Baked Out Of My Gourd" fight in April.  It seems like an extra-long time and a lot of work since that April victory, but it probably only felt that way because we've generated so many non-competition, non-Fight songs in the interim (Real Reel To Reel, Trash Panda, Bedsheet Ghosts, Crustacean Stretch Receptor, and our cover version of Raised By Wolves's song "It's Invisible") in addition to the three non-winning Song Fight entries since then (Change Is Coming, Good Luck Charm, and Turn Off Your TV).

New Jerkatorium song "Super Creepy" posted at

Jerkatorium has a new song in the current Song Fight for the title "Super Creepy".  You can hear the song (and vote for it, if you like it) at the Song Fight website at: 

Our "Super Creepy" is yet another love song about CHUDs, and I feel confident in saying that it is one of the very best love songs about CHUDs that I have ever heard.

They also picked my cover art for the fight:

Regular readers might recognize it as a re-worked version of the art for the "Fever Dream" Song Fight from March 2015 (I'd finished the drawing too late to submit it for that fight):
