ok. it's my first time hosting a skirmish. this is the kick-off skirmish of the superskirmish weekend. i won't be able to participate, as i have to head into work immediately. i have @AndyGetch as a backup in case i have to get into work early to make desserts or such. if it does happen, i would know at least a day in advance, but i'm scheduled for 4:30 my time as of now, which means i can drop it like it's hot and head out the door. if i need Andy to post it, i might see if he wouldn't mind posting my idea. watch this space!

Thanks @tsunamidaily, this is a template for a post

WHAT: We'll have a song skirmish and it will go something like this:
1) At the start of the event, a title will be announced.
2) All participants write and record a song to that title. They have an hour to do so.
3) Participants share links to their songs. Fun and embarrassment ensues. But most importantly, one more song is written!

Be sure and tag your song and also post a link to it in this thread!

Have fun!

thanks! i just wanted to get it started.


less than 12 hours till the superskirmish starts, I'm so excited Dance 4 . My goal is to write a lyric and/or music for all twelve, plus the regular Sunday skirmish hosted by @Corinne54 and maybe even end up in a collab or three with a lyric only or music only writer Good

@AndyGetch That's what I want to try and manage too Smile So might be grabbing folks for collabs as I pass, hint hint lol

@Amanda West and other lyricists - write the lyrics in thirty minutes, and you might pull off a skirmish collab in under an hour... Hint hint Wink

@marvsmooth Easy peasy ! I love a challenge Smile

I'm in.

Oooh a challenge inside a challenge Smile

Happy birthday @tsunamidaily!

@marvsmooth & @AndyGetch I may even try 2 x 15 minute lyrics and post both for 2 collabs inside one slirmish..... Although in 15 min they could be pretty rough lyrics lol I did do a couple that fast for FAWM though hmmmmm

I like it Smile

The anticipation...Uh oh where you at?

The prompt is "People"

People, people who eat people, are the hungriest people of all

hehe "PEOPLE"

did i miss it? i thought it was at 4..... no-- i'm an hour the wrong way. crap.

so, if there's another i might could fill in for someone duplicated, i could do that. i just have to remember i'm an hour BEFORE new york time. [AndyGetch] get in touch with me to fill in on one of your spots if you like. sigh.

Here is mine, an improvisation

Here's my very basic lyrics:

Here is my offering. I wrote it up very quickly!

Thanks for the nice title... Here is mine...

I'm flowing like molasses today. Lyrics only and late at that!


And now @AndyGetch has created the demo to go with my lyrics ! All inside the Skirmish hour Smile

Aaaaaarrrggg....okay, got home 30 minutes after it started, but I checked the prompt on my phone so I was thinking about it....Then this came out. Would have been on time but technical difficulties and organic (read I'm at home alone with the kid) challenges...and here it is such as it is. at the 2 hour 15 minute mark...
