eh? this bothers me all the time these days.
then the world?
or write books, although i'm probably too lazy to do the latter.
"tom had a hat. he looked very fetching it.
one day, tom lost his hat. his fetching exterior was soon lost.
after days of searching, tom came to terms with the finality of both his lost hat and attractiveness, and took his own life."
complete with illustrations!
Once I've stopped laughing
and party every day.
oh, luckily enough...
in the Swiss alps, dividing my time between some hot Scandanavian bird and snowboarding!
"As Rose-Kitten says..."
behind the scenes job in government.
or a minor independent radio DJ.
Really soon thanks, so I can stop bothering with university! Any offers?
You can win a Hold Steady ticket next Monday! For a show that is on the very next day! This is not relevant to most of the people listening from DiS, as you won't be in Manchester! But if you come up, we can meat! Yeah.
"Wow! The Hold Steady! I'm totally listening to see what amazing competition has been devised that this fabulous prize so clearly deserves!"
i love the hold steady me. listen to his show. right.
Mondays, 10-midnight on FuseFM. www.fusefm.co.uk
http://deathtomusicblog.blogspot.com to listen again.
who gets to tour the world and play show's because he's so good.
But i'd be happy with mid-level success and one UK tour before going back to office job, to be honest.
Because if so, I think I speak for the entire board when I say I really, really want to hear them.
Not really. Every "song" i've ever written went like this:
me: Oh, what's this! I got a new guitar/computer programme/instrument! I'll write a song which rips of other artists which use such appliances!
Plus, despite not having written anything down, my lyrics are terrible. They're over earnest and not funny. And I can't sing.
I plan to actually musically "come out of my shell" at uni. I don't feel like I can create anything in my own bedroom. Though I can see myself using this excuse every year till i'm to old to put off getting a "proper job" and it will be an EPIC FAIL.
Woe is me.
yes, i do that. although i gave up writing lyrics and just make instrumental shite that sounds amazing on the first few listens. then you wake up the following morning post euphoria and throw up all over it.
in a really really obvious way. Not in a "mixing your influences" way, in a "I've listened to almost nothing but Tom Waits for the last month. let's write a song - Oh, it sounds like tom waits, what a surprise"
I think i might have to go on musical cold turkey if I ever want to produce something. And I'm just generally lazy and not confident enough to ever publish anything, if i ever do it.
Arg. I'll stop now.
to alot of neutral milk hotel. alot worse. I managed to "write" a song that sounded more or less identical to aeroplane over the sea, and only realised after someone pointed it out.
well, I personally think the music I used to make on my own was quite good. But only because it didn't rip anyone else off that blatantly because it was just that noisy and amateurish. But thats all moot, because I can't write songs on my own anymore.
So um, yeah: articulating what i like about other people's music >>>> frustrated hopes of expressing myself creatively.
except i am also unable to take a reasoned viewpoint on any music. Also, i don't really like music like a music journalist should: I honestly don't care about bands on myspace and don't enjoy buying loads of new albums. I tend to get one artist, buy their discography, exploit that for a month or two, then move on.
Woe is truly me.
I actually will stop now.
but your experiences with music are still relevant, I guess it depends in what way you choose to articulate them. But yeah. If you both genuinely care about music and can actually play guitar or something then I say keep trying to write something good.
i basically just like showing off. Gigs are fun.
basically all I did was show off. Most of our song titles had my name in them. So yeah. Gigs are really fun.
Wearing running shorts.
Rival Brian Chippendale for pure drum fill fury.
Melt brains, hearts and amplifiers.
Go on expeditions.
You had your chance!
thats all i want to do at the moment.
I know I don't want to buy anything. I don't want to sell anything. I don't want to buy or sell anything that's been processed... I can't figure it all out right now! I just wanna date your daughter.
I actually enjoy doing and pays reasonably well. You'd think it wasnt too much to ask.....
- a job I don't completely despise
- financial stability
- a happy family life
I completely realise this is hopelessly optimistic.
Be an artist.
And have some unusual pets.
These are my ultimate goals in life, I don't have very long, so I need to achieve them as soon as possible. Fingers crossed about my art school application.
