Hello friends, I've got a fun one for you. Here goes!

Some of you may recall me mentioning years ago that many many years ago, decades now, back in college I hooked up with a bunch of guys and one gal who were the best folks in many ways. One of those ways was we'd be partying on a weekend night and someone (usually Ed) would decide it was time to write a cycle story. So we all did and it was Fun with a capital "F".

We all sat around Ed's and Stewie's living room in a rectangle shape and passed around his battery powered dot matrix typewriter that typed on sheet paper. You remember the contraptions of the '80s, half typewriter half printer with a one line LED display? How retro to have one today!

Well long story short is we'd each write a paragraph of some silly story and take the characters on some adventure that was just hilarious to read. It got quite silly as the evening progressed, and was tons of fun.

Well, us being Musicians, I thought that maybe we could do the same thing with audio. I am beginning with the song posted below, which is the very first song that I ever created and it was created here at electro-music circa december of 2007 or thereabouts.

Now for a few simple rules. It's a typewriter remember, so you can't erase unless you use liquid paper which still leaves a visible mark or cross it out which still leaves a visible mark. So I guess partial attenuation and overwrite are allowed but preferably only to a limited degree. Next thing is that it's for broadcast on my radio show and that show is only an hour long, so please keep your paragraph to about 5 minutes or so otherwise I may have to compress it in time somehow or pad with talk show which I can do, I'm a talker on the show. Last rule is you may add rules as you go if you think it's a good idea.

Let's make a fun cycle song and have a great time doing it!

Les
