Diary working again (posted by Keith, 17 Feb 2017, 21:03)

Something strange happened to the Diary in Jan and Feb 2017 - it should be ok again now, but if you sent something in recently and don't see it, please just send it again!

Dan's remixes (posted by Patrick May, 8 Sep 2016, 00:28)

Dan, cool stuff! That's an interesting interpretation of my song 'Johnny'. The ending is especially interesting - you seem to have emphasized the sombre emotional tone which was present in the original version of the song.

Your version of Blarg is cool too. It has your distinctive style, but it maintains the character of the original song.

If you want to do more, I encourage it. Combining ideas from two or more songs is a cool idea, it'd be interesting to hear the result.
