I’m so happy that the powers that be have (re)added the comment count functionality to the new site after missing it last 50/90. Up to 25 already! Being home sick with a bad cold (for real; I’m not faking the “first day of FAWM flu”) has its advantages, and my ears are working fine! 😀
I’m new and I’m having so much fun listening and reading lyrics. I’m so inspired! I definitely cannot keep this pace up for the whole month (haven’t yet done any real work today!), but I hit 100 because I’d just keep clicking.
Hey, just got myself on the list at 100 Comments!!
As (I think) @headfirstonly said in someone's comment, it seems as if everyone is stepping it up this year, cos there's so much fantastic music to listen to!
302!….and I have only listened to a small fraction of the songs I would love to hear. I keep finding new to me FAWMers who have been here for years and I am just getting to their amazing music. I am so blown away by the creativity and talent and kindness of this community!
I’ve been enjoying the random song spin and have heard some really great music. Just passed the 100 comment mark.
Occasionally, I have come across a song I just didn’t like and have chosen not to comment cause I don’t have anything nice to say.
I keep swearing that I'm going to stop listening and commenting, but then I find some other really good music to listen to. You FAWMers are creating a problem for me! I have other things to do in February (like write songs!)
Ooh I had forgotten about this little "club"- I have just passed 200. Listening to other's stuff takes up 80% of my time at FAWM and is a real education. I get to listen to genres I wouldn't normally listen to and I get to hear (or read) lyrics that are far removed from my style (or my comfort zone). Visca FAWM per sempre!
@odetocollaboration, You only get Century Club rewards at the upper levels.
For example, at 200 comments you get a key to the executive washroom, and at 300 comments given you get access to the FAWM salad bar and the bouncy castle. 😄
Wow, there's some people doing a lot of listening here! I'm at least managing to keep up, more or less, I think, with commenting back, and I've just had a bit of a listening party so I've made it to 100. Yay! And onwards...
It's great to see so many familiar names out there racking up the numbers. On my last job, I had a full hour for lunch every day to listen, but I have a different situation these days. I probably won't have impressive numbers but primarily my goal is to listen at least 1 for 1 and to as many as I can who join a challenge or skirmish.
302 for me! As @berni1954 says, skirmishes aren't just great for one's own productivity, but also for giving firm motivation to do lots of listening of others' songs as well! (Although the "Random Song" button has been getting lots of use too!)
Like every single year, I didn't so much run across the 100 line, or even walk, but rather crawl across it with my body missing below the torso, leaving a trail of blood that extends hundreds of kilometres through the desert.
I'm so happy to have given back to those who inspired me to "stick with it". I've posted a few lyrics, but I'm just ecstatic to have hit the 100 comment mark! It didn't just take me 20 days, it was actually a long 2 years in coming.
@kahlo2013 im at 662. ill catch you in a couple of days. im not a skirmisher and you are. so i had three really slow days and you had three really fast ones. a super skirmish at the end will put you in first place , but until then, im going to try my best to keep pace with you.
@coolparadiso Yup, I didn't believe it either! ("it's on the internet, it must be true!") But poor @fuzzy can't keep up with the overwhelming inrush. Been there, done that, got the migraine! We love you @fuzzy!
This is a Wonderfull idea - my first FAWM, and I've been being intentional with finding time to listen/comment, but - only 55 at the moment...
Hey, something to shoot for. Who doesn't love a target (I mean, as long as it's not at work...)
Finally got to 100! I am so bad at commenting, I think this is the first year I've got to 100 comments. Big respect to those of you hitting 200+. It's hard to comment when you don't know much about music and it's just trying to find loads of different ways to say "this is cool, I like this" without having the musical knowledge to add further detail. Still, pleased to be here. 😃
Hey just hit 100, first time in 19 years of trying, I think. I am a centurion! Either the quality is way up, or the introduction of the 'random song' button combined with way too much time on my hands helped! Your call ...
Well, it's lovely to finally find time to do some listening, and I've reached 200 comments now. Woo hoo!
I have heard so many excellent songs so far this year. Is it just me, or are FAWMers excelling like nobody's business this year? Wow! I'm blown away.
At 400 now. I'm clearly not hitting 500 before FAWM is over in a few days, but do plan to stay around in March, and hope to at least approach, and maybe even reach, that lofty perch over the course of the month. (I have no idea how long @fuzzy will be around to update this chart, but that's obviously not going to affect my personal listening enjoyment or goals.)
Well, @odilongreen, I will be here every day updating the Century Club list at least until the middle of March, and probably every few days after that until the end of the month.
So everybody feel free to let me know when you've reached those milestones!
Now over 900! Was hoping to get to 1000 but the end of FAWM, but with the realities of work this next week I think I might stay on the 9th floor and welcome others as they join me there with a glass of Chablis and some some warm Brie on tea biscuits with a dollop of raspberry preserves….a million thanks to you @fuzzy for doing the heavy lifting to keep this up to date and going into March! Stop by for a glass of wine anytime as I assume as the host you can visit any floor you would like!
Okay! I made my goal of over 1000 comments and there are still 103 minutes until midnight here and only 11,380 or so songs to check out! So much great music and many great lyrics! It is amazing and inspiring!
Just FYI; here is how I keep track of all of you lovely folks - it's the official Century Club back-of-the-envelope list number two! (I'm actually working on back-of-the-envelope list number four right now)
I got a little behind on commenting during FAWM just trying to finish up music in any free moment but am trying to hit the ground running for #MALM and am at least over 100 and counting now. 🎶so much good music.
in 2004, i commented on every single song that was submitted!
i don't think i've ever reached the century mark, though.
until this year. it took a concerted effort on my part, and it made me really appreciate the really high rollers. especially when some of them give deep and insightful and musical comments every time. like prsongsmith, i may just try to get another century in before april fools day.
Not posting expecting any updates but I am thrilled to have listened to or read lyrics for over 1200 creative wonderful songs! I keep finding FAWMers I have not listed to before and going back to enjoy more of some of my favorites. I truly wish the site was not going down April 1 as I would love to listen more every weekend. It is such a joy to listen when there is not the frenzy of skirmishing and posting songs and collaborating… looking forward to hearing more over the next few weeks!
