Arrival

My first ever full song recording. Very basic, but I’m pleased with it.

I think I’ve lost my legs.
Knowing me they’re sitting at the bottom of the deep blue sea.

'I don't understand the industry. I dont understand where music is headed. I don't understand technology. I just know that when you walk into a club and you see a band that blows you away, you are gonna follow that band. You're gonna either buy their CD, find them online, or see them the next time they come to play. And that's what it takes. And… you don't have to stand in line at the song contest on TV to become a fuckin popular musician. You know? To stand in front of some judge who doesn't even fuckin play an instrument on their own goddamn records to tell you “No, you're not good enough.” Fuck that. Go and blow people away in front of their face. It's that simple.'

Finally Friday

Today, after work, I will be buying a ticket and speeding down to Brighton. I’m meeting up with my girl who today finishes her 3 year uni course, and we are going to party like it’s 2014.

I cannot wait.

I’m not a failure because I didn’t succeed.
I’m a failure because I didn’t try.

Just one example of the fantastic writing in ‘Derek’. Overwhelmingly inspirational and yet tragically sad.

Re-reading Harry Potter and I wondered…

I don’t suppose anyone knows why there is only one newspaper in JK Rowling’s wizarding world? It’s proved to be corrupt and one-sided many times to help the plot, but is there a reason why there aren’t any competitors?

What is that feeling when you’re driving away from people and they recede on the plain till you see their specks dispersing? - it’s the too-huge world vaulting us, and it’s good-bye. But we lean forward to the next crazy venture beneath the skies.

- Jack Kerouac (via story-dj)

Beautiful quote.

'An Exercise In Inertia' is a short demo of what may well become a full song. It was written and recorded in a couple of hours so please forgive the sloppy vibe (fully intentional, of course…).
