It is somewhat of a 5090 tradition to have a last weekend Super Skirmish. @metalfoot kicked us off with a 12 segment Super Skirmish back in July on the first weekend of 5090. @tcelliott organized a Mini Super Skirmish a few weeks ago. I am hoping there is interest in doing a series of skirmishes this last weekend of 5090. Maybe if there is enough interest we have a full blown or even extra-long Uber Super Skirmish. One year we tried this and ended up with a Spaced-Out (longer than one hour time gap between) Super Skirmishes but still had a total of 12 over the weekend. My first 5090 I recall a 49 hour marathon with a total of 25 skirmishes organized by @plainwhitetoast. To get it started, post below the time(s) that you would most like to host. I will add slots first come, first served. As a change up, I would like to have a more UK and Europe friendly potential starting time for the weekend series of skirmishes on Friday beginning 6pm BST, 1pm EDT, 10am PDT based on https://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/converter.html with the traditional skirmish by @corinne54 Sunday September 29, 8pm BST, 3pm EDT, noon PDT, being the last skirmish in this series. I am interested to see how this evolves.
I also am giving dibs to @Amanda West who has hosted a number of skirmishes this Saturday at 3pm Eastern.

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 using the above tags, 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 and share the 50/90 love.
