I just know I'm not going to get to it this week. next week I'm going out of town. and my legs have this rash that literally looks like I set them on fire and stomped it out with leprosy.

Pics or it isn't there.

Also, I'm thinking about getting someone to do lyrics/vocals on my submission, but I'm not quite sure yet. I haven't been able to grasp thrash like vocals yet, but I'll give it a shot after a couple beers when I'll care a little less. Can't decide on clean singing (it is also a doom metal song, not just thrash), shouting and wailing, or just straight up growled and harsh vocals.

I'll update if I want to collab with vocals though, for now lets assume I'm doing everything myself.

Edit: What if I used some lyrics from the March/April 2011 challenge that never got used. Like maybe "Eye for an Eye", or "Fins of the Apocalypse"? :D

And the pic doesn't even do justice to the redness and I didn't feel like taking off my boots this morning since I basically have a red anklet of meaty red surrounding them so it's a hassle to get them on and off.

Don't leave it like that, go to a doctor or at least try to get some information and self-medicate or something. A friend of mine had the same rash and just waited for it to end, it ended with last minute surgery, this close to amputation.

Or maybe it's not that bad, but seriously get some information.

I've already been to the doctor last friday, she gave me some cream. And actually that is 'better' than it was friday. I have a followup appointment tmwr morning. Usually I get a shot of steroids so maybe I'll get that.

And it wasn't that I was just letting it get worse and worse, I was putting on some other perscribed cream that I had from the last time I had something like this last year. I ran out of it that and then went to the doctor.

it feels like heaven when I take a hot shower.

I don't think so... if it was it was from the hotel I stayed in North Carolina. but the doc said it looked fungal. But this is something I break out with when I get near poison Ivy which I'm highly allergic to. I mean like sores and shit like that appear within the day from poison ivy. But these never boiled up with pus or anything which i'm used to. plus I haven't actively been outside in anything with out a ton of clothing on. so who knows.

If this situation could be solved, I would be glad.


1. The American right to freedom of speech only prevents the government from restricting your speech.
2. This site isn't American, the webmasters are Canadian.

Ouch. Hope this gets better soon for you. Ask the doctor if it could be something that ends up in your boots, because a red ring around the top of your boots sounds like a bit of it has washed down to there with sweat. The worst thing about something like this is when it's almost gone, then it comes back, and I had that happen to me once.

well it actually started up near my knee. It's just retarded that's about all I can about that.

At the very least I'm going to ask for another tube of whatever cream I was prescribed. it seemed to work the best out of the 3 different ones I've had before. nothing over the counter has or will ever work.

Who cares? The point is none of these laws apply to a privately owned and operated forum.

Well anyway, I haven't even started on lyrics yet.... I do NOT know what to write about. All I know is the instruments are done and I hope I can get lyrics done before the 10th so I have time to prooflisten.

Unless he says otherwise, I don't think he's the one who picked up this challenge.

Edit: TheOldSkull picked it up, so you might want to talk to him.

That rash pic looks nasty. Cool, I'll check out your narrative challenge submission when I get a chance on my work comp.

I'm all practised up on guitar/drums for my thrash songs and am 1/3 finished the lyrics. But my laptop is crashing again... posted on a windows7 forum so hopefully they'll be able to help me before the deadline.

Trying to psych me out? :)
Looks like the problem was a bad stick of ram, so I took it out. Got my fingers crossed for no more crashes. Also planning on doing a cover of an 80's song.

I'd say look at your computers processes in task manager and see what the hell is plugging it up. I had a similar problem with my laptop last week and it turns out one of my updates was stuck in a loop or glitched or something. So I removed stopped the process and removed the update. My computer's been running fine ever since.

I'm still in a lyrical funk, and I don't have one word written.

Yeah, a bad stick o' ram will do that. Happened to me a few years back and the troubleshooting basically involved rotating sticks of RAM around to determine if it was the actual RAM stick or one of my memory slots. Eventually I found the culprit (luckily was just a RAM stick and not the mobo) and took it out before buying some new RAM later.

Recorded drums yesterday and will do guitars/vocals tomorrow then mixing on Sunday and upload on Monday. Thrash is fun! I haven't actually tested whether it's the ram stick or the slot, I just took out one ram stick and didn't get any errors on a memtest program (had lots of errors with both sticks in). Laptop doesn't seem to feel any slower with only one stick so far. It's great to have the laptop back, gonna have to record a lot now.

I'm having some major computer problems, I'm gonna try to fix it in time but I may have to pull out of the challenge. Will let you guys know sometime soon.

For those who want to know what's going on, my anti-virus isn't detecting any threats, my CPU is not clogged up, and my system memory is fine too. But for some reason clicking and opening programs or even task manager locks up my laptop and nothing works. I can move my mouse, but most of the time hovering doesn't highlight the button even though task manager is moving and working. It's like the background just freezes, but I can move my mouse and task manager is still keeping track of running programs.. Like I said, no processes are plugging anything up, my memory and CPU looks good and clear, so I don't understand what the hell is up. Just ran system restore and re-updated but I have a feeling it will happen again soon.

Also, I had a blue screen while playing some music yesterday.

it'll be like the last few. The grindcore one was a flop and the story narrative one was it only had 2 people do that.

I finished mixing my song (2 versions) last night. It's a bit sad to postpone the deadline again, initially it was supposed to be February 14th.

Anyone who has joined the challenge should be able to provide at least a demo/draft version of one's song.

I urged myself to finish on time, of course now I can remix my song to better it, but the challenge loses its meaning.

All I need is lyrics and vocals. Instruments are all done.

My focus has been on my pc though. I think I got the heart of it with Malwarebytes, but there's still a little glitch where if I run a full scan, MB freezes up on a particular folder (something with NET and Framework in the filename). So I gotta find a way around that before I can call my pc clear. All in all, my system is running just fine for now, it looks like its all good except for this little hiccup.

Is this thing still alive?

My song is finally completed. I did some experimenting with my vocals in certain parts (like falsetto howls and less melodic singing), and I'm gonna sleep on it. Should have it submitted by tomorrow night if all is well.

When submitting lyrics, do I just type them out in the PM or do I need to submit the wordpad document?

Yeaaaaa..... Some shit on vocals I though might have sounded cool yesterday just sound plain silly today (mainly in the clean[er] category). So I guess I'll just replace those little bits and submit. If anyone wants to hear the original version without the cleans edited out, just let me know and I'll post a link. Otherwise, for this challenge, I want to send in something I can feel confident in 100% so the cleans are edited out in my submission.

Edit: Umm.... Where do I upload this where it can be ready for download? I don't know what's trusted and what's not.
