Host: @Amanda West

When: Saturday, July 20th 4pm EDT, 1pm PDT, 9pm BST
PLEASE NOTE: I have just realised that we are currently on BST in the UK and Ireland, so my previous times were all wrong - apologies, I have not corrected it ! (link is external)

THEME/PROMPT: Dance of the sugar plum fairy (write something along similar lines, if you can't write about this precisely Wink )
Also a preliminary theme was: Accident

TAGS: s200719a, skirmish, skirmish, songskirmish, feast, dance of the sugar plum fairy, accident

WHAT: We'll have a 1 hour song skirmish, and it will go something like this:

1) At the start of the event, I'll announce a title/prompt/theme/concept/ for your inspiration.
2) All participants write, record, and post a song within an hour. Lyrics-only posts and instrumentals are absolutely fine. And if you take longer than an hour, PLEASE post anyway.
3) Be sure and tag your song, and also post a link to it in this thread down below.
4) If you participate, please listen to (or read) and comment on the songs of all the other skirmish participants. Share the 50-90 love, folks.
Fun and embarrassment may ensue, but, most importantly, everyone will have one more song, lyric, or instrumental under their belt!

Peace and love

I will be happy to play but have an afternoon obligation so may not be able to comment on songs until tonight but will try to quickly write something when the prompt gets posted and will definitely come back to listen!

Yes - I just finished Insider (XBox One) and will foray into Borderlands after said skirmish is completed!

Uh...we're still playing, right?

Remember, time is an illusion-- skirmish time doubly so.

The heading says Standard time. Most of us are on Daylight time. Does that mean we won't start until top of the next hour?

@JWHanberry - that may be the case.

I got the times wrong, I should have typed BST etc I assume - so we will start at 9pm BST ! Which is 4pm EDT and 1pm PDT I think Smile
@cts @JWHanberry @Aging Ophelia @splittybooms @kahlo2013

Where is it Daylight time, and where is it Standard time please ? So I know and understand for next time Smile

Uh.. when I checked at 2:06 the prompt said:

To Be Advised

So I took that as the prompt and wrote this skirmish about some advisory warning...

There is a spoken bit that kind of refers to an accident as well so I totally think it counts Smile

@kahlo2013 ha ha brilliant ! Will go listen now - I have changed the times to be more accurate - It's actually BST here at the moment, not GMT, similar in the states so it was very confusing (as well as me being held up behind the smash)
I have re-timed it to start in 15 mins if you fancy another ! I'll chose a different theme Smile

I'm in.

whoops, ok.
that'll be 1pm pst per google
scrapping what I had will start in...welp, 7 minutes lol

oh question - will the theme be the same?

No it wont LOL

Have to keep you on your toes Wink

THEME/PROMPT: Dance of the sugar plum fairy (write something along similar lines, if you can't write about this precisely Wink )

Ah, did the first theme, but when the second one started, ten things came up here all of a sudden, sorry. So I've accidentally got the wrong theme, and hope posting it here won't be stepping on any toes (punny of me).

here's mine, done to the fairy dance theme Smile

@Aging Ophelia it doesn't matter at all which theme you did !! I'll adjust the text in the OP Smile

Here's my accidental song. Not really done but you'll get the idea. More later.

@JWHanberry gets double points for including the reason for the theme, as well as the theme itself, in his song !
ps he did the accident one lol

I just did a Sugar Plumb themed one:

Was having a hard time with 'accident'...had a harder time with the actual theme. But thanks, Amanda, anyway! Forced me to try new things! Just saw accient-sorry. Leaving

Accident Scene Blues - upgrade. Another verse, more guitar.

I accidentally forgot to post this after I had finished it.
