Calling All SMARTIES*

if Fall gets your creative firepit stoked like it does mine,
you're ready for our SMARTIE songwriting contest.
here's the object:
complete any of the "unfinished" songs we've been releasing as downloads**
by adding your own melody, vocal, and/or words.
then send your completed masterpiece to webmaster Rob Murphree.
please send MP3s or CDs.
entries will be based on creativity,
so feel free to add whatever you want.
keep in mind it's not a shredding contest but a creative assignment.
there will be 3 judges including yours truly.
entries must be sent to Rob by December 31.
the winner will be announced on January 10th.
the winner will be awarded an original Adrian painting worth 6 cents!!
and the winning masterpiece will be a free download for all the other
SMARTIEs to ignore...er, enjoy.

Good Luck.

  1. This seems like such a challenge. Most of these downloads sound so COMPLETE to me, even if YOU consider them to be "demos!"

  2. I'd like to take part, but like Mike pointed out, which tracks are actually unfinished? Could you provide a list for us to choose from perhaps? Or shall we just spray our creative juices over anything you've released as part of the Dust download? HELP!

  4. Dag, I'd do anything for one of your paintings!

    Well – not anything, but this sounds reasonable. Fall, fires o' creativity, fo' shiz. To the Batcave!

  6. Adrian, could you let us know how to send our mp3's or CD's to the webmaster (e-mail address, perhaps)? I'm new to this blog and I'd love to take a crack at this; toughest "6 cents" I'll ever work for!

    Thanks,

  7. Smarties! You can email me at robmurple@gmail.com
    rob@adrianbelew.net
    webhamster@adrianbelew.net

    take your pick! I have more addresses (which is sad) but at least I'm easy to reach. The gmail account will be the best.

  8. I'd like to giv it a shot, but I got a problem. Where do I get the tracks ?
    I tried the store download but paypal needs an amount " different from zero" so I couldn't get the process done ...

    Sorry if that sounds stupid but though I knew Adrian I'm new 'round here! :)

  9. camillo,
    Same thing happened here, Rob kindly instructed to hit the "Show price in: USD" button in the upper right of the shopping cart window.

    Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
    Peace.

  11. For those who see a ZERO price, click on the track you wish to purchase and select click the small round radio button where it reads: "Show price in USD" . Once you do this, it should remember the setting and show the price on all future viewings of the store. We are checking into why this is happening and hope to have it fixed soon.

    If you are still having problems, please contact me off-list and I will try to work with you individually to get the track to you.

    Thanks and sorry for the problem.
