This Thursday we go into the studio to record the second single. Later that evening I am going to finally get around to doing something I have been meaning to do for a couple of years now ...

I am finally going to record a version of Folsom Prison Nightmare. Be afraid. I want your opinion on this. It will be 5 verses, the first verse being the first verse from the original. I need 4 more. The list of what I have so far is below the cut. What do you think I should do to you?

I've got a little list )

Well ...

I have a new verse for FPN ... I apologize. I blame WSPA-3, it was her idea.

I may have to inflict it on the good folks at Conflikt.

More Windy

I will be performing with Tomboat (we hope, get better Tom) Friday night, and may be sitting in with some folks at other points with my Bag-O-Rhythm. I will be performing in the Fump concert Sunday as well. The thing is, I haven't performed solo in some time ... any requests? I will do FPN, beyond that I am uncertain.

I forgot to post the winner Monday when I got home from camping, my apologies.

On my completely arbitrary scale, the one that made me laugh the most.

The winner is my favorite person currently on deep medication [livejournal.com profile] bammba_m for suggesting "If You're Happy And You Know It" ... which fits disturbingly well and actually made me snort.

Thank you everyone who played along, I have a lot more to add to the list now, including some really brutal songs.

Including the original, and some con specific verses, I now have 99 possible verses for FPN.

So it's contest time. You give me a song that I don't already have, and if I pick it you get a special prize (to be named later)

So come on, help me fry some brains. I'll announce the winner Monday evening

but wait, there's more, now how much will you pay?

The winner will be whatever makes me laugh the most, so it's completely subjective. Duplicate entries will both be awarded a prize

and again

You can enter as many times as you wish

Of course I am speaking of [livejournal.com profile] coat_of_brown, who may have just given me the most evil addition to FPN. Next time I play it, you know who to blame.

Musecon0 sure looked like it worked to me. I had a marvelous time, and expect to have a better time next year. I went back and forth as to whether I was going to go to Mahtowa this year, and I certainly made the right choice.

The panels I got to were fun. WSPA-2 was along and went to the harmonica panel and the blues panel. I looked in on a lot of the craft stuff, and there were always a bunch of folks in the back of the music room knitting, painting and lots of other stuff.

If you are into anything creative, this may be the con for you, even if you aren't a geek.

Now for the band and personal stuff ...

First of all I have a new rule. Always room with two fabulous babes. Always. It's good for you.

The band had a blast. It wasn't our most musically perfect show, but which one is really? Here's what we played.

Sunset Boulevard
This Island Earth (new arrangement)
Wheels (Foo Fighters cover)
Reach For The Stars
Poolhall At The End Of The Universe
Son Of A Witch
Zombie Mama
Rocket Launcher/Gimmie Shelter
Roman Wall Blues (two versions starting with it done ala the Stray Cats, yeah, the Stray Cats, it damaged poor [livejournal.com profile] beige_alert)
Last Ride of the Cthulhu Kid (our new filkabilly song, yes I said filkabilly)
Banned From Argo
Would You Like To Play A Game?

I played some both nights. Music circles were small but wonderful. [livejournal.com profile] lizziecrowe and I did Follow That Road (Anne Hill) and Swamp Witch (Jim Stafford). I'm getting more and more excited about working with her. It's looking to be very cool, very eclectic and very very fun.

I did FPN both nights, with mostly different verses. I have now put the printout in my book into alphabetical order. It keeps growing. I also did Bang My Bald Spot and Hides, with WSPA-2 playing along, so I got a lot of music in. The funniest thing for me all weekend was a very lovely woman who sang along with both FPN and Follow That Road. I need to be friends with her, and not just because she's lovely, I mean come on, she's got to be fairly twisted.

I swam a lot. WSPA-2 and I went Friday, [livejournal.com profile] exapno, WSPA-2 and I Saturday and [livejournal.com profile] lizziecrowe, [livejournal.com profile] exapno, WSPA-2 and I went Sunday morning. My shoulders are a little annoyed with me, but it feels good.

I did wear one of my Mahtowa shirts all day Saturday. But going to Musecon was really the right thing. A lot of my friends need to go next year.

You have to do this now ... I need it within the hour. Give me a song to add to FPN.

The folks at Musecon will curse you.

I had the 2nd weirdest heckle ever tonight. I was doing FPN and someone asked for Def Leppard. I was struggling to remember the verse, I didn't have my big book with me, and someone grabbed something from a table, got up onstage in back of me ... and poured some sugar on me. A lot of sugar. There is a point at which your improv skills fail you. This was one of those points.

I played Low Self Esteem, Heaven Out On The Highway, Ghosts, FPN.

Did anyone get video of me doing FPN at Penguicon.

Folsom Prison Nightmare just got a little worse ... no ... a LOT worse.

I don't even know if I want to do this version in front of anyone.

For those of you who have, or haven't seen me do this.

I'm going to be committing FPN to tape soon. So, those of you who have heard it, what songs should I include? They can be songs that I have included, or songs that you think I should (or perhaps shouldn't) include.
