Figure I'd make a post since it's quiet, and you probably want some progress and feedback that things are happening. I'm currently putting some work into this now, hoping to get to the point where I have all the info and direction I want to begin actually writing lyrics.

I don't want other contestants to see my stuff just yet, but I could PM you my google doc if you're interested. Then you can look on my progress, well until I actually sing it anyway.

I put 3 weeks, so the 26th, since it didn't really start until the 4th.

Are newly registered members are able to submit entries? Maybe too late?

I was wondering about the submissions so far, was hoping a lot of people are holding out until the very end to submit (or maybe pushed them to you via PM).

Since I'm here, want to let it be known that I've gotten about a minute and 20 seconds written and sung out, and was planning on plowing through the rest tomorrow after work. Since the date has been extended, I'll do a little review Saturday morning before I post it. Putting some actual effort into this (not that it means much as I'm not exactly a rapper), so hopefully it ends up being alright in the end!

Contest submission:
Introspection - Foxfire
(Soundcloud tags didn't work right rip)
The time is here, another new year
Canít quite pin down, just how Iíve been feeling
Maybe if I write it out, I can cast aside my doubt
Letís take a moment and own up to some introspection
Man I felt it hard, but you know how those feelings are far from
Scars from war and torture, or a fatal disorder so
You have no reason to cry, keep it inside, carbonate your fucking mind and
Cap off that bottle you fought to keep down with those thoughts from the night that so graciously hound you.
Mothers unwell, can hardly move at only 50. Kept her pain to herself to pay the bills and feed her family.
I canít stand seeing her like this, or fight the thoughts that haunt me as I write this
Cause maybe sheíd be okay today if only she had the heart to say
I canít keep this up, my body's had enough, or
How bout a brother whose down in a spiral where sobrieties pain and getting highís a denial
I try my best to keep him up, make peace with the world even if itís tough but
Iím not much better than he is with anxiety waiting to seep in
Itís less like a feeling and more like youíre dealing with bad shit you and ya friend smoked in his car
Death gripping your chest, youíre counting your breaths
Maybe a minute a moment a day, as long as it wants to that burden will stay
Never truly over, just wishing to be sober
My turmoil will never be [move over]
Canít sit by and let you hide from your good side any longer
If you put the focus on only the stuff thatís rough all that negativity will keep on adding up
Then damn, before you know it, lifeís ran its course and all youíre showing the
world is nothing a bleak soul mourning, a body thatís weak and a mind in torment
Remember your drive, to better, your mind
Getting a semblance of self confidence, being accountable to my interests
Your progress, is high, anxiety denied
Think of the weeks in a row thatíd youíd freak but now youíve got one hell of a sobering streak!
My strength, is growing, my body, is flowing
I look in the mirror and like what I see, finally feel like Iíve got energy.
And surely I canít deny my friends are close, love them the most
Iíve got a mind to keep climbing out, lifeís been better trying than just laying down
I just want to be happy with myself inside and out

I did take this seriously, but don't expect the world from an amateur. It's hard to push through and post because of that, but that's something I've got to learn to get over anyway. To anyone interested, this google document has all the pre-writing brainstorm stuff in it I mentioned a couple weeks ago. I didn't do everything I wanted, but I did a few things I liked I wasn't even initially aiming for so I'm satisfied. This was quite fun to do, and took up a fair bit of my week after work trying to puzzle and flow things together in a way that wasn't stupid. Even if no one else submits, I very much appreciate the revival of this contest and the initial effort you put forth to make it happen blindreper! For the sake of the event though, it'd be nice to see a couple more at least by tomorrow...

Only thing is it's already been 3 weeks, and the thread has had barely activity at all relative to how many people actually said they'd participate. With the cash prize, and the extension nearing us into the month mark already, I really can't believe there is anything that is going to push people more to put something out. Maybe people forgot, so I'll say it again, blind is offering up $30 as a frekin prize here! What more push can you ask for when average event prizes are e-tokens and credits?

i started a new job and that has been my focus. i was going to spend this last week and a half ish to focus on this but getting sick really made that not happen. i didnt even realize there was a cash prize rofl. only doing this because i like it and it would be nice to actually get something written and finished.
