Russ Rogers of Godz Poodlz has started a Facebook songwriting club called "White Elephant Music Club". Why anyone would want to use Facebook is beyond me, but I plan on reviewing the songs when they come out. From what I can tell it's a mix of Song Fu, Song Fight & Nur Ein. The challenges seem to be Song Fu like, it's going to have a panel of judges like Nur Ein & it's only a 1 round contest like Song Fight.
The first challenge of the club was just announced a couple hours ago.
The challenge is simple, write and record a song with a Fantasy, Sword and Sorcery theme.Now it's a little more complex than the small section I quoted above. There's a number of ways to get 'bonus points', all of which include pimping the White Elephant Club & Skultar. Skultar is a Conan like character created by Mark Wheatley & M.J. Butler, and they are sponsoring the contest.
The song must be at least 2 minutes long. It can be in any style with any instrumentation. But the song must have lyrics. Instrumentals will be posted as "shadow entries," people will get a chance to hear them with the other songs, but they won't be considered for the "Grand Prize."
Nothing against Skultar, but I really hope people don't focus too much on the bonus points.
The deadline to turn in your song is September 20th, 11:59 PM, Pacific Time. The winner will be announced on September 30th, and for more details just visit the White Elephant Music Club.
