I won't be around much in February. <—ha!
Clearly, the songs have a mind of their own. I will write whatever I'm given to write by the fevered miasma of my sleeping mind.
Last night I told Best Beloved I'd finished what would probably be my last song for this year.
The Little One came down the hall to see what made Mommy laugh so hard.
Counting 6 songs in January, I'm already The Win. So there.
Thanks for listening to and commenting on my daughter song! Sweet and goofy is exactly what I was going for. 😁
Thank you, sir. You will be the first to hear it when I've finished. And for the record, I'm so glad you managed to get 10 songs in this year! Awesome stuff.
And thank you for posting such open and honest lyrics. When you write from your experience it seems to come out as most powerful and potent material. I appreciate you wearing your heart on your sleeve, Joel.
Yes. I remember reading an article 20+ years ago on the Edge’s kerranging guitar sound. You did make me check the Google. Turns out there’s a whole magazine dedicated to metal called ‘kerrang’.
Yeah, I know. 😉 In my defense, I was in a community theatre production the past two weekends and I have to actually, you know, work. But once I get a little caught up on sleep and work I'll be back at the usual furious pace you've come to expect of me. LOL
I've not forgotten your kindness, Joel. When I first started FAWMing, you were there to welcome me, message me, email me, compliment me. That stuff stays with a person - and that's just a minuscule part of your legacy - and it will stay with me as long as I walk this earth. I think you're awesome, man. Please never forget that !!
Hey Joel. I'm glad things are turning around for you in 2019 - sorry to hear you were toiling last year. On the upside, for someone who's not supposed to be here this month, you're making better headway than I am. Keep the songs coming for as long as they keep coming!
Glad you are taking those 'babysteps'. 2018 was a tough year for me in a lot of ways too, hoping for better this year for both of us!
Hey Joel, just checking in with your Joelness. 😀
Sorry to hear about the tough year, Joel. Hope 2019 brings you better things.
