      STMB   01/22/2017

      Sorry for the outage. The board went down for repairs on January 5th, and we didn't expect to be out for a full 16 days.  STMB is using a default skin, as you can see, and that will probably be the case for a few weeks.  Meanwhile, the board is working better than it ever has before.

@riPaddo: yah...I do most my record shopping at thrift stores and I look for ones with people with funny faces on the cover,

this is Bobby Vinton,

and the song's title is indeed the same as sung in the hook "I'm Gettin' Sentimental Over You" (spelled that way),

I couldn't even stomach listening to it at regular speed so I sped it up plus 10 on 45 rpm, but this song has some instrumental jems hanging off the words and

the words at 45, got a catchy tone to them (I think)

nice choice nontheless. also I got a quick question... I just wanted to make sure I wasnt bustin up the rules, or nuthin but when we flip the sample, can we add additional samples as background stuff, like another sample for bass, or strings, or whatnot?

the 270 beat I dropped had some confusion about that, so I wanted to make sure.

@ RunC.T. : man I thought that was an outside sample... those keys? well no worries man....

first if you ever have a question on the rules there is a lengthy debate of these "standard" rules I chose this week

(too tired this morning to think of anything else sorry everybody)

just go to the Frequently asked question link above (or here)....it is a good room to debate little pieces of the rules

to me it's all about intent

-hope this helps
