TALC – The Alphabet Lyric Checker

I did this quick program about a year ago, but I felt the need to share it, and I might improve it (read: make it embeddable) in the coming weeks. I also made a repository on GitHub ( https://github.com/RePeet13/talc ) that will have the source file and a jar that wraps it all up for desktop usage.

Idea: This game is built on the alphabet game you may have played on roadtrips: where each person competitively or collaboratively tries to spot every letter of the alphabet (in order) in words on signs or license plates. The twist of this program is that instead of signs, the words must be in the lyrics of the song that is playing, and each new song is a new game. This program allows for lyrics to be checked as to whether it even contains all the letters, in order, and in separate words.

Note: It’s built in java, so you need that installed on your computer to run this (most people already have this…)


tl;dr: https://github.com/RePeet13/talc project on github for alphabet game :)

I’m not a survivalist heck-bent on stock-piling for the apocalypse, and learning all I can about bushcraft type things, but I will leave this here:


(If anyone needs a gift idea 😉 )
