Museday Voteday

In spite of the new computer and Windows 7's horrible support for all things related to sound and MIDI, I actually managed to complete 18 Museday excerpts this year. As is tradition, I will now take one of these "quick draw" fragments and expand it into a longer work. Vote for the one I should extend using the Poll in the right sidebar and I'll post the extended work on December 20. Any snippet with the double-thumbs-up icon next to it is eligible for your vote (these are the ones that seem to have potential for expansion, and are not necessarily the best of the bunch). If you're new here, you can get the idea of what happens by listening to last year's mendacious Mendacious expansion. Even if your musical tastes only run the gamut between T-Pain and Chris Brown, give a listen to the potential excerpts and vote for the one that charms you the most!

For added artistry, I have described each snippet with exactly seven words, which probably describe the excerpt more appropriately than the random title words that triggered their creation.

Thickset: Transylvanian shopkeeper prices will bleed you dry.

Usurious: Wasn't as steep when I started rolling.

Trumpery: Anton the Piggy forages for some truffles.

Plenteous: Chick Corea's later works aren't as good.

Asunder: Can't put all genres in one song.

Slinky: Oh lordy, isn't it a grand day?

Coequal: They get things done down in Accounting.

Superannuated: Pub songs, some years before Sweet Caroline.

Iodized: Sydney Bristow has run out of costumes.

Emollient: This camel takes forever to get anywhere.

Mercurial: Had a nightmare that I forgot something.

Leonine: This song really should have had trumpets.

Jouncing: Pee before you drive the bumper cars.

Scurfy: Why are all of the futures dystopian?

Slouchy: Could dance recitals get any more depressing?

Felonious: Fat, drunk monk shouldn't try to mambo.

Fusty: Coasting the moors in my little dory.

Whelked: Frogger and Kermit have a battle royale.

You can also go back and listen to all of the historic Museday fragments:
