So, here we are again. Indeed, we are
-- So, what do we love about music, songwriting?
-- How have things changed over time?
-- What is your plan moving forward?
-- How have you improved over time, or not, and why (do you think so)?
And since this thread, [ read the URL path, is in the "Free for All" topic ] ... what I'll say is,
---- in the flow of thought, the free for all writing [ is ] what gets me writing and I love it. I do. Then, I musicate.
I noticed recently, over a weekend -- asked to evaluate a track and uber-dub. Hmmmm, weekend brain, had no Chaos. Come Monday moring...? ... I didn't have time in the day for "WORK" hahhh and all the stuff that flowed for "it", the track. (Came out stunningly... yup, Chaos... it's a wonderful sorting tool.)
So, for example, IRL, ---- I met someone recently (not "here"), --- who had a buddy on another thread (in another country, not his either)... and, well, this person, how to say?, in fact did not write when "level"... many do not, they wrote when "down", or "manic". So, when another different co-hort asked me, "do we need to be concerned?" No -- just how they are. (That foreign country thread Red Flagged his posts and warned would be referred to that countries federal police for commenting "suicide" online. Indeed, different countries, different rules. (I have a story about that, but to much all at once for now, so, skip it, for a change )
-- So, we all need to allow enough room for each other to be ourselves and over time in a long term relationship.
I've been around artists and musicians my entire life (O M G), ---- and most groups I've been in IRL, all parts of the country (big cites, back woods appalach), it's like the lobby of a State Mental Hospital waiting room (lots of family in the business at one time)... just how it is, -- artists, and normal folks? they all be crazy. I am. Yes? No? Maybe? Am I even here? Is this even important? What would Aristotle say? Ah, but I digress, again, down another rabbit hole. ADD-OCD, it's a fun place to be! And, I get ALLOT done (I'm the boss, so plenty of help. -- Wow, look at that bird go ... hahhh! )
-- So what? The art and music et al, it's just beautiful to behold, ain't it? And it's all music and all about the music.
Life, live it, it may be almost over.
