CotC so far
Soggy Potato Chips - He hit more often than he didn't. A ton of good ideas, and considering that this was just his 2nd show of any sort, in a year he's going to be a dementia force to reckon with
the great Luke Ski - No costumes, just the music. He was great. I heard some stuff that I had not heard live before.
Jessica Delfino - Due to a family emergency, she wasn't able to make it. Bummer.
Tom Smith - Another great Tom set. I wish I could develop a tenth of the rapport with the audience.
Comedy Music Q&A - This was a blast. A bunch of Fump people (and me) talking about what we do. I think we laughed more than the audience did.
Rob Balder - I have to be honest, I bought his CDs at Marscon and I haven't had a chance to listen to them yet so a lot of the set was new to me. I now need to go home and listen to the CDs. Great stuff.
Power Salad - Ok, I am a fan, I have to admit. He was great at Marscon and even better on this show (more on his show that just got done with the next post)
Worm Quartet - Probably the best WQ show I have seen. The audience was really into it, and really set Shoebox off. The best show of the weekend so far.
Sudden Death - Insert snarky comment about his showing on Dr D this year ... and MAN does he deserve it. A great show with some stuff that I hadn't seen live.
Seamonkey - What can I say, he broke Shoebox ... he broke most of the audience. Deeply twisted, deeply wrong, deeply funny.

Other than the cover songs and various versions of Coke, all there was was Cold, I Won The Lottery, Things That Are Yellow, and Morning Angst ("I hate deodorant")

Not what I'd call a "ton of good ideas."


Still, nice to hear comments like that ;)

There is also your backing tracks, how you put things together and everything else.

Yes, the music is quite good (I listen to my own music all the time! Or maybe I'm just self-centered). Now if only I had someone else to write gooder lyrics to the music ;)

The first thing you need to do is quit using "gooder"

Write everything down, anything that amuses, annoys or interests you.

Okay, BETTER lyrics to the music. Is that gooder?

Anyway, I've come up with lots of ideas for songs, I'm just not good at actually writing stuff for them. Like what Rob was saying, I just take a few good lines and make it into a song by filling the rest with random rhymes that don't really add anything...

I can't begin to say how many ideas I have in my notebook that will never see the light of day. Just write everything down. And if random works, and is funny, insightful, whatever, make it work for you.
