THIS WEEK'S CHALLENGE 8/7/16 - 8/12/16 8PM SS time
Welcome, Welcome, to our next Vocal Creation Challenge. We try to have them every week (try being the operative word…lol) Thanks to those who participated in the last challenge. Below please find a list of songs for this week’s challenge. You are to choose at least 3 of the listed songs (however you can do as many as you like). Once you have recorded your version please post it locked (optional) to the thread and on Friday 8/12/16 @ 8pm Sing snap time unlocked (if locked) your songs which will be place on the playlist for our listening and commenting pleasure. You are to choose songs known or unknown and make them different from the original but still making it pleasure visit for the listener. Come make a Vocal Creation, and visit us often as we have such challenges every week. Tell a friend to tell a friend to come make a Vocal Creation…also tell them, if they are scared to sing outside the box, this is not the place for them…lol
Here is the link for those who wish to make a Vocal Creation>> http://www.singsnap.com/karaoke/forum/topic/ad17d836?lastPage=9b1c6#last
Got any ideas, we are looking for a logo for Vocal Creations and would like to solicit the sing snap family to help in this cause.
Sitting here thinking that we need a logo of sorts for VC, would love to be bombarded with innovation from our audience.... standing on the corner with my cup "PLEASE HELP"
Vocal Creations = SINGING OUTSIDE THE BOX
In an effort to have a larger playlist, we are extending the challenge to next Friday and I will be sending out invites toward that end... if you would please tell a friend to come make a VC out of 3 of the songs from the challenge list or more...thanks
(Post songs here)http://www.singsnap.com/karaoke/forum/topic/ad17d836?lastPage=9b1c6#last

lol.. wonder what was wrong with discard or disregard as it read>>> Just in casehttp://www.singsnap.com/karaoke/forum/topic/b11a2c62?lastPage=9b1c6#last, then you came to say, you don't like to be spammed and clearly you see now that it is not a spam... so I take it you will discard and disregard.
i'd love to do it, but i do not know any of the songs

To answer queries that might exist, such as "I do not know any of the songs"... please know that Vocal Creations is singing outside the box, and we purposely do not try to imitate the original. If fact, it is perferred not to know songs that one sings as that will ensure, you will not have any expectations, unless you go see how another did the song, then you will try to sound or imitate that person...lol
There are times when you will know a song from a challenge. Then, you are requested to attempt to make it different from the original (not an easy task), but still make it pleasing to the listener that they have an enjoyable experience. Not knowing is perferred by most (raising hand..lol). It is a barrel of fun to have a song presented with many different takes (imagine 7 or more takes from the same song and each are different) and that only happens in Vocal Creation, where we make new songs out of known and unknowns, as "it do what it do"
Questions?...lol.. ok come have some fun with us.... see you on the thread.

*You agree not to transmit through the Service unlawful, harassing, libelous, abusive, threatening, harmful, vulgar, obscene or otherwise objectionable material of any kind or nature.
So in any case, when you contact another snapper and provide a link, they have the option to click on it or not... in this case, the snapper choose to click on the link, then found it to be offensive and decided to voice dismay, instead of discard or disregard as was asked of them and offered apologies.... they also could have reported it to SS staff as harassment.
Many use this medium to ask others to join in their efforts and from reading it is very easy to see if there was intent of malice. In such case as above, when one is not interested, they should discard and disregard, or make a scene, either way, it is their choice.
I hope this help you MDF Mary in better understanding what and how a spam can be interpreted to be....lmaooooo.... again lil tiny kisses all over your face until we meet again....Me
I just click random names to ask and also known names to ask, so it is very possible that I might click that nic again in the future, in efforts toward a promotion, I don't even remember the nic witout going up or to pm to see.... so it is very likely they will get nudged again at point X lol"
Then every person according to that person whoever invites him to a contestis spamming[my interpretation] There is sure a lot of us guilty of that.
Then every person according to that person whoever invites him to a contestis spamming There is sure a lot of us guilty of that.
The majority that offer contest, challenges..etc... all are guilty.. perhaps ss should be close as it offers suggestions and such as well ahahahahahahahaha... as always.. it do what it do
We are looking for a logo banner, which one do you like or do you have a different one in mind??
Singing out the box Vocal Creations
Hi Charlie,I like the singing out of the box logo. I've been away from singsnap for a while but hope to hang out more now.
I respect the way you are working to keep this unique section of singsnap alive, and reaching out to snappers to join in.
Hope you are recovered and well.

Listening and understanding the words brings out the true sound.M. My mind yearns for new expansions, new directions, to chase excitedly.N. Normal conventions, preconceptions and familiarities are cast aside. O. Out with negatives, that attempt to control, to demand; that I stay with-in the boxed lines.P. Preparations appears pointless, but promising in pleasure, when triumphs roar.Q. Quests that yearned to be fulfilled, should be fulfilled, it will satisfy the hunger; yearn to be fulfilled.R. Revelations are readily given in many ways, I choose to not sing expectations.S. Sing with my heart and soul to create new and unique songs from oldT.

Not long ago. we collectively completed the 2nd Vocal Creation Alphabet Poem. It turned out much better than the first and many participated in the finish product. A conversation was started suggesting we make the poem into a song and ways were offered that suggested how that could be accomplished. Hence our next challenge.
The songs are made and now unlocked... enjoy

SNAPPING A SNAPPER CHALLENGE
Our next challenge is to snap another snapper. Snapping can be defined in many ways, depending on your mindset...lol One definition is forcing a song that was intended as a single into a duet. Another would be, adding harmony to a song that does not already have harmony, or even if it does. Some even call it blending in. Finally, If you like, you can define it as making a song do what it do, by joining the original singer in some creative way. Of course, you can add other defines as you see fit, but I'm sure anyone reading should get the gist. So this week challenge is to find someone on sing snap, past or present to sing (at least 1 song but you decide how many) with and post the locked link(optional) creation here and unlock on Friday @ 7pm SS time. Bring your A game and make a vocal creation with someone else. You don't have to say who it is, or post the song title, let the playlist speak for you, that will add excitement and be a fun mystery.
Four have stepped up to the VC mic to take part in this week's challenge and defined what snapping is to them ENJOY!!!
SNAPPING A SNAPPER CHALLENGE PLAYLIST
THE SONG WRITER'S CHALLENGE
I was sitting under the pecan tree in the shade, wondering what could we do as a challenge, that would be fun and challenging at the same time, then it hit me. I thought about the challenge when we had to make a song out of the VC poem. Well We're not making another song out of a poem, but we are going to make a song(s). This week we are going to put our talents to use as song writers. Your mission this week, should you decide to partake, is to use the sing snap house band library of music and create a master piece to be presented for next Friday's playlist. Write your very own song and after you have finished this work of art post your locked (optional) link here >>>>>>> http://www.singsnap.com/karaoke/forum/topic/ad17d836?page=a2166#reply_b578bc72e <<<<<<< and unlock it on Friday 10-28-16 @ 7pm Sing snap time(or before you retire for the 28th). What is/are your favorite genre? Here is the chance to show your stuff, make a Vocal Creation for us to cherish....Enjoy!!!
A New One. This one is Custom.The Name Of This Song Is " Hamburger Steak, Holiday Inn "There was no version of this song. So I had to make this beat wok.I Hoe You Like it. http://www.singsnap.com/karaoke/r/ba8ff1147And please like my web page at facebook.com/JerryDyeSongs
This is the day, we've been working toward and waiting for, as Vocal Creation Writers make their debut to the big VC stage and present their masterpiece(s). There is still time if you wish to either write a song for the challenge or post a song that you have wrote in the past from the Sing Snap House Band backing tracks....
Two ways to get on the playlist, which will be posted today @ 7pm SS time, if not before will be to (1) post the link to your song here or (2) post your link to my private messenger, this is the preferred way today that your song magically appear on the playlist.

THINKING 101 (WTF Intangibles?)
I was asked “WTF Intangibles…. What are you talking about” I thought it was self-explanatory, is it not? It appears it is not, and after thinking about it critically, and in retrospect, once asked, I now see alternatives in thought, in acceptance and understanding of “WTF Intangibles”. When I say “we live in a tangible world, from an intangible perspective” I never once thought that anyone would have issues with that. Now I know that is not the case, so I will attempt to explain here in this post. I have accepted for myself, from my lay understanding of the timeline from the singularity (the point when everything we know of at present; 2016, going backwards to the “big bang”) of what we know to be most probable from the stack of accumulated knowledge, to be evaluated, since our inception. From this perspective, I have learned and accepted, that there are two realms, one physical and one not physical. The physical is natural, meaning “it is” and until we know further, other than “it is”, we cannot add or take away from it, so it is all natural. A good example would be the air that we breath, we have come to know the components of it and it has been here way before us and without reason to be known (you must have evidence or wait, or make yourself content mentally) …. It is natural and can be measured, tested as being physical. Everything else, regardless of what it is, would be “intangible” (not real). When I say “everything”, I mean it literally. One example would be the word, “speak”. That word is an intangible, because of the compromised definition. The word itself has been given worth and purpose from Homo Sapiens, for our use compromised to purposes over time, but to explain what is happening physically, would end with the word “speak” that we have agreed to use to describe a physical action; it is an intangible, used to explain a tangible thing of vocal chords in action. Again, “we live in a tangible world, from an intangible perspective”. No one sits down and think this way, unless, they are thinking critically and on purpose, as we have (over time) created many short cuts, without questioning it, of things we do (eye blinking), say (screw that) or accept from social constructs and just plain ol living over time (the concept of time is an enemy to understanding). Knowing (or at least accepting) what I know to be most probable does not hinder me from partaking in or enjoying the intangible or tangible side of the realms. For example, “Thanks giving”, I understand how it came to be on the time line from prospective of an era, how it was inducted and moved to 2016. I can enjoy that without the deity assignments, because thinking critically, the deity would have to be accounted for and it cannot be without me making amends mentally. So, I enjoy being thankful for my intangibles and my tangibles, without adding or taking away from what is most probable. I am thankful to be alive and experiencing this mystery, I am thankful for the things that have made this clandestine enjoyable, sad and otherwise. I am thankful for my mental awakening of the universe and its awesomeness, that WE as a species of approx. 80k at least and 200k at approx. most, have just began to understand anything of this natural phenomenal. Also, when you think about TIME, how we made that intangible work for us…we slowed it down to a pause long enough to make an assignment to worth. I am very thankful for the chance to find something to give back to the world that has given me so much. My found purpose (for me), is to promote thinking and the data that we have and presently collecting to move us forward, from critical thinking, and that’s what I mean, when I respond to “WTF Intangibles…. What are you talking about” ? You can be creative and do a Paul Harvey thingy (those old enough) and say ‘NOW YOU KNOW THE REST OF THE STORY”. HAPPY THANKSGIVING EVERYONE!
The new challenge is up and running.... can you change a song from your familiarity?.........come and see
Going on now!!!! come see...IF YOU DARE
19 days to the big event for those who partake. Its the holiday season and the VCers of Vocal Creations would like to take this opportunity to say season greetings to everyone. For the remainder of this year (25 days) we will be contemplating the next VC contest that will launch the first part of 2017. We will be putting out notices all over SS so keep your eyes peeled for that event.
In the meantime, if there is anything you would like to say, sing, or post, please feel free to do so. Looking forward to spending another year on SS with my Sing Snap Family. Enjoy your holidays everyone
Remember this>>>. Well I'm back into the hospital again. Went in Friday after noon to have a pain in the leg checked out and they kept me. It appears that I have a clot in the leg. There are complications that won't allow for traditional methods to be used. I am ready to go home. I'm optimistic that all will be over soon and I am once again at home recovering. Should there be anyone out there in SS land that is bored, you can come take my place and I will go do something else all together...lolTurn out to be much more than rountine...they kept me and I am just returning back from a long stay in ICU. I had no idea, I had been there that long...lol... Anyway, I am back and will most def have time on hand, it hurts to think....lol but I will power through. My Partners in crime "havingago" and miss willieI are working our 2017 VC contest and should have the outcome up and ready very soon....STAY TUNEcwang50
