Influences:   Gravity. Mortality.

That might be my FAWM over.

I had to have my dog put to sleep yesterday (Fri, Feb 9). She was the bestest and goodest puppy dog ever. The kind of dog that ,makes me not want to get another dog. But she was old and it was finally time. To the week, she was two months shy of 16 years old.

Maybe I'll still write some songs, but I'm really not feeling able today. I don't know when I will be able again.

"And when my dog has died,
I'll have a guilt-free suicide."

EDIT: (Feb 16) One week on, I have managed to finish a couple of songs that were in the pipe since the beginning of the month. I wasn't too enthusiastic with either, but I'm just trying to keep my mind off the now empty house.

Bands (current):
40 Rod Lightning (insurgent north country/citybilly)
the Catalytic Perverters (garage punk)

Collaborations: I am up for it, but sometimes I flake out. Just realize that whatever we do, it may have a life outside of FAWM. It won't be an overly exciting or at all lucrative existence, but it I like it enough, I will make sure it lives. If it wins the lottery we will divvy up.

    Just so you know, I'll be checking your stuff out later this week. I'm almost done with my collabs and that will give me plenty o' time to take it all in.

    I'm so sorry about your loss. I hug my dog on my front steps every night when I get home from work and tell her I sure am gonna miss her someday. I'm sorry that day has come for you.

    I just came across your name in the comments and remembered you from 50/90. I'm so sorry to hear about your loss. I know I'll see you in happier times at the next big songwriting-fest. x

    I'm so sorry for your loss. Pets are just furry family members and the grief can be every bit as deep, if not deeper, than for people sometimes. They just worm their way deep into our hearts, and they're always there for us, no matter what. The saddest thing about letting them into our hearts is that we almost always outlive them. But, we can't let that keep us from loving them. They bring so much to our lives. My deepest condolences!

    I have been there a few times so can empathise. It's time to remember the good days together not this sad time. Maybe even write an Old Shep type song?

    Here's my contribution to the ANTI-SYN game:

    It's all built-in keyboard sounds in Garageband. Let me know if you have any questions/grievances.

    I got overwhelmed and ran out of time today but I will be back to check out your 0203-D skirmish song!!

  • @barrygoldman  2 weeks

    It is something! I could tell your aim. I love that era, Hotter Than Hell is KISS' most rock n' roll album. Truly like a group of 4 guys just firing off each other live.

    If you’re up for it, I’d be down for another joint effort.

    Have a great one sir.
