Influences: I'm kind of a sporadic music listener. The vast universe of music available on Spotify intimidates me, so I listen to podcasts. The last album I listened to was probably Neko Case's latest. It's been a few months, but I recall that it's pretty good.
I picture myself as more of an conceptual artist than anything...endlessly pitching song ideas to my imaginary band, Fresh Spotless Youth. Generally speaking, "songs" I post here sound nothing like they would if FSY were better at executing. Self-deprecation aside, there will be 14 "songs" here at the end of the month, and I will love them all. [Update: I'm hoping that the number of songs will be greater than zero.]
(I think of myself as the Justin Bieber of my generation, or the Sid Vicious of Justin Bieber's generation, or the Die Antwoord of the Napoleonic era, but people don't understand.)
Hey there! Thanks for the sweet comment on Daria. In answer to your question, yes she got the money from AirBnB. The apology was more for the embarrassing way we ditched her, and for the almost-certainly awkward conversation she had with her mom after we got busted. 😀
Thank you for the comment on "Margaret Said"--(I just updated the demo btw with a full version)... Chekhov's gun is the idea that everything in a play should have meaning, "if in the first act you hang a gun on the wall, in the second act it should be fired." I have to admit I have never read any actual Chekhov.
Surrender to the dancing veggie groove 😂
Thanks for diving into that looooong track even if you didn’t make it through. Will likely pare it down later if we have time and energy.
Your wonderful comment made me laugh out loud!
thanks for your comment on i nvented rock and roll, i didnt print the lyrics because it was just a one take improv. never wrote anything down. i got the idea long ago from the paul simon movie one trick pony that had a guy with a duck tail outside a club, complaining that he invented roc kand roll but coulldnt even get a gig. i think lot of us are under the delusion that we invented rock and roll but it is more likely that rock and roll invented us.
Good stuff! I'm impressed with how well you converted it into song form, given that I never made any attempt to structure it for vocals when I wrote it. Looking forward to having another listen on proper speakers later when I'm home from work!
Thank you for your lovely comments. I'm happy that you posted something, thanks! 😀
Excellent! I'm happy for you to post, I trust you! But also happy to host it if you need somewhere for it to go.
Danny, thanks for listening and commenting. I very much appreciate it. It makes me realize more I got that side to me, a fun side. Knowing that, even when I don't feel that way, and still writing funny, makes me think: is that okay? I guess it is. Kind of an eye opener for me!
Thanks for the comment! No songs from you this year? Or are you waiting to unleash a flood of them on the 28th?
Well, looks like I'm sitting this one out. I'm going to do a little listening.
Only eight days left for you to produce your tunes. Cant wait to hear them. 😉
Thank you for your lovely comment. Still hoping to hear you this year, I miss your sound.
thanks for your comment of how do we get out. i like the idea of hearing it as a campfire song, but an end days cult would probably have their own ideas on the subject, wile thee are just a bunch of old dead people who have no idea what to do or where to go next, they really need an egyptian guide,
Thank you for the comment! Please let me know if you post music this year so i can return the favor.
Thanks! Can we expect some music soon?
Thanks Danny! No songs this year? Missing you!
No songs this year Danny?
You're just listening this year? I hope you'll make a couple of songs at least. It's not the same without you.
Glad to see you around though. 😀
I miss you <3
Don't go away Ray. Stay and play. Save the Day.
I'm wishing you a Futuristic Fawm 2019.
Are you here this year? I hope you're here...
