Anonymous HuSi seeks talented songwriter for hot MFC XI action. No questions asked. Will you strum your strings and bang your drums for me? Email me.

It's NOT okay to contact this poster with services or other commercial interests

UPDATE: Deadline advanced two four weeks to July 9 to give everyone more time.

UPDATE: You can upload your entries here! Thanks, 256.

UPDATE: VOTE HERE!!!!



Ah, Craigslist. Give the world a chance to post classified ads for free and what happens? Love for sale "no questions asked", anonymous ranting, obscure bartering, real estate advertising, questionable philosophy, and baby clothing sales. It's like a swap meet on acid. But today as we take a look through these aisles of odd merchandise and human refuse we shop not for knick-knacks but for musical ideas. Yes, it's time for MFC XI: The Craigslist Challenge.

The rules are as follows: Go to Craigslist and find a posting in there that speaks to you. Then write a song about it. It can be in any forum from missed connections, to casual encouters, to vegan discussion, to nonprofit sector jobs. Whatever floats your boat. If you feel like it, link to the posting that inspired you, though you can write a song about many postings if you prefer.

Deadline is Monday, June 25, 2007.

And don't let this distract you from the Classical Music Fun Challenge. I'm eager to hear what people make in that contest. I would join in but the last time I played a real instrument it was a clarinet in grade 8... and I don't own any clarinets. Maybe they'll have some for sale on Craigslist...

swap meet on acid by alien zero (4.00 / 2) #1 Thu May 03, 2007 at 06:48:03 PM EST
Right there I imagine a bunch of underwealthy scruffs sitting in a field, watching coloured tendrils rise from their baskets of unwanted junk, and saying "wow"

Thanks for the flashback!

This sounds like a really cool idea! I'm just browsing through the lost and found section there's inspiration EVERYWHERE!

My one comment would be that the date seems a bit close to the CMFCs finish date.

why sit, when you can sit and swivel with The Ab-SwivellerTM

I will vote for any song that manages to crowbar in the line "If she's not on the 5:19, Then I'm gonna know what sorrow means".

Just wanna sell my microwave
It's used but still in good condition
Just think of all the cash you'll save
While looking after your nutrition

There's just one thing I have to say
If you don't want my microwave
If you sell viagra or hay
Then just fuck off and go away .......

Question by Herring (2.00 / 0) #14 Sun Jun 17, 2007 at 06:43:27 AM EST
Is it difficult for 256 to modify his upload thing to allow the craiglist links to be included as well?

Yo by yicky yacky (4.00 / 1) #16 Sat Jun 23, 2007 at 02:47:59 PM EST

Any chance of a short extension? I've got something done, but the mix is well off, and I won't have a chance to fix it on proper monitors until later in the week.

If not, I'll enter the duff mix and fix later. No worries.
