Description
Back in September of 08 I entered this song in the LIOLI-8 Challenge being help then under the screen name of Captain Sloparts of the MacJams City CIA. It was a real hoot for me when I entered that challenge, and I'm kind of fond of the piece I did back then.

Well I have since deleted the Captain Sloparts account, but wanted to reload the song here for posterity. If you've already heard it, nothing has been changed so unless you just love it and want to hear it again, why bother. But if you've never heard it, or forgotten what it was like and just want to check it out again then by all means have a listen and give me your feedback, I'd love to hear from you on this song.

Either way, for those that listen either again or for the first time, I really hope you enjoy the ride.

Some background for the newbys.

In the LIOLI-8 challenge, Dr LIOLI had built a space born weapons system satellite and we were attempting to destroy it before the evil Dr. could turn it on MacJams City, and use the weapon to turn out fair city into a Polka Karaoke park for evil scientist.

This was the battle that I fought against the nefarious Dr. LIOLI.

Be well and be cool,

Ed

When I closed the Captain Sloparts account down, this went with it and I wanted to make sure to put it back up. I was and am kind of fond of it because I really got into the LIOLI -8 challenge.

Thanks for the revisit my friend. Glad you liked it and came back to leave the kind words on it.

Be well and be cool Feter

Thanks Steve
Welcome to my world Steve, glad you dropped in to have a listen, and even happier you found something to like here.

This was done in answer to the LIOLI-8 challenge back in September, which was a hoot to do. I kind of got into it big time and wanted this to be as good as I could make it. So I sort of when crazy on doing it. Turned out to be a lot of fun for me, and the LIOLI challenge was a great success because of all the wonderful entries we had from the MacJams Super Loopers for it.

Thanks again for listening my friend, I do appreciate the kind words.

Be well and be cool,

Ed

Thanks Mark
This was done under the screen name of Captain Sloparts, which has now been deleted, so you may have missed it if you weren't following the LIOLI-8 challenge in September.

It was a lot of fun to do as was the whole challenge. Thanks for listening and the kind words my friend, It's appreciated.

Be well and be cool,

Thanks Jack
After I deleted Captain Sloparts I decided it needed to be over here on sloparts side just in case someone wanted to listen to it. It was a fun bit to do and has been known to cause smiles to appear on ocCasion, so I thought, why not.

Thanks for the listen and the kind words my friend.

Be well and be cool, Jack

Thanks Kenta
Glad to see you come by for a little bit of Scotch and a listen to the old Captain telling war stories. He does go on about his heroic deeds, doesn't he?

I did like the way this one turned out, but as I listen back I can see areas I could have done better. But instead of backing up, I choose to go forward and learn from this and all the other stuff I've done here on MacJams.

Be well and be cool my friend, and save a whiskey for me, will you ?

Yeah that's what the lLIOLI challenge is all about, loops. So this one is all loops and sound bites from a few different movies. The only live thing on this is my Captain Sloparts talking in the beginning.

Glad you enjoyed it my friend. Be well and be cool,

Thanks Joe
I had a lot of fun during the LIOLI-8 challenge, not the least of which was inventing the Captain Sloparts character and doing this song. To say I got into it in a big way doesn't cover it at all.

Thanks for the visit Joe and the kind words, they are appreciated. Glad you stopped in and enjoyed the track.

Be well and be cool,

Ed
