    Default Season 279 - Red rum (sort of)

    Hi everyone,

    Here is the intro video. Summary follows.



    Here in Hobart, we have a museum that runs a festival around the time of the winter solstice each year. One of the major themes of both the museum and the festival is death, so I wanted to make this season about death. A bit of research found that Alan Thornton has already hosted a death season, so I thought I'd make this one a bit different. I originally though about getting you all to play murder ballads, but I thought that might be a bit restrictive, so as long as somebody dies at some point in the song, I will be happy.

    Rules:
    - Somebody has to die at some point in the song
    - Uke must be prominent
    - Video must be newly recorded (but, if you record a tree song that also contains a death during the period when both seasons are active, I will accept it even if it has been posted to the tree season. The same applies for whatever the next season is.)
    - Multitracking is OK
    - Season starts at midnight on SATURDAY HST and finishes at midnight the following Sunday.
    - 3-song limit
    - Prize = local food items for the top 3 entries, which will depend on the customs rules of the country of residence of the winner.

    Good luck guys, and keep in mind that Val's fantastic tree season still has a day or so to go, so please keep submitting tree songs.

    PLAYLIST

    I should mention that if Justin Bieber happens to die this week, I will accept tributes to him, in which case Randy's prediction will be correct.

    The man who invented Benylin has just died. His family say there will be no coffin at the funeral.

    Just realised I forgot to mention prizes. The top 3 entries will receive 1 local food item, which will depend on the customs rules of the countries of residence of the winners.

    Oh, and I'll make sure that the food item is dead before sending it...
