The Song That Broke My Year-Long Writer's-Block

Download art_of_suffering4.mp3
My life won't be normal for a while, so here's this one to last you till it gets normal again (if everrrrr, ever, ever). Poops.

But, yeah, that year-long writer's-block, well, it scared me for a year, cuz I wondered if I'd ever come up with anything particularly inspired again. I mean, I kept on writing, steadily, but it wasn't necessarily stuff I'd wanna play for anybody, or anything I'd wanna be remembered by. But, then, one summer's night, after watching "Patton" (I have no idear why it was after watching that), I came up with this song. This is my band's version of it, yeah.

Writers Blockedness Poopy-Ones

I gots me a nice li'l writer's block going on, and I'm poopysad cuz I moved away from the rest o' my band. It's a fuckpoop week for me, stupid, dumb career. I wonder how long this writer's block'll last. Usually, it goes away, even though it feels like it'll never go away every time it happens. The thing is, I had a writer's block that lasted a whole year once, and that makes subsequent ones more ominous. Then again, the song that broke that writer's block was The Art of Suffering, so maybe that made that entire year of dryness worth it. I should post that song on this blog, when I get the energy. I'll do that. For now I'm gonna go back to bed-poops.

More To Come

There'll be more to come, but right now, this move's kicking my ass! Also, I have a huge, gigantic writer's block. That usually happens when my life changes. My dreams are all weird and unfamiliar, too. But, yeah, I'll post more stuff, as soon as I can get my ducks in a row. (Almost typed "dicks" in a row).

how it got there' s illustration ain't as nonsloppy as I'd've originally liked it to be, but drawling with a mouse is hard (some mouses more than others) and I don't have a scanner-poops.

How it Got There Stuff

Man, I haven't had the brainpower to do cool pictures of stuff in the last few weeks. Nope. What can I say about how it got there ? I guess, as I said in the last post, I was bein' sort of willfully vague when I wrote the thing. It most heavily influenced by The Very Pleasant Neighbor. I dunno if that band's still around, even, but it was a cool band. It was such a weird time, when I wrote that song. It was a big old transition, where I was gettin' ready to break up with my boyfriend at the time, and tryin' to get my identity back and stuff (funny how you can lose those in relationships). I was just gettin' over the hump o' the tuff time I was goin' thru, but I don't even know if I knew it at the time. Hah.

This Song's From 2001

Download how_it_got_there.mp3

This here song's from 2001, man. Around March, I think, of 2001. It's sort of vague as to what it's about, but that's an okay thing, cuz I think, back then, the Me of 2001 wanted to make it so it was up to the listener's interpretation. Oddly enuff, the 1st couple lines of the song were a psychic prediction of something that happened to me in 2007.

What this song might be about and posterity and stuff

Probably don't need much explanation for the song, monster_in_my_head, or much commentary. Still dunno, I mean, dunno what people'll think about it, but maybe I shouldn't care, anyway. Sometimes I think it'd be nice to leave this blog behind when I'm dead, but I'm thinking that wouldn't work, cuz eventually the world is gonna run outta gas, and that might make the power go out, so there might not be an internet in a few years. In that case, maybe I'll pick some o' my best songs and write sheet music of them for posterity and the like. But, then I realized that I dunno how important it is to try and have humanity remember your music, cuz maybe it's okay to just be forgotten.

I guess if you were to ask what this week's song is about, Jung would say it's about the Shadow, and Freud would say it's about the Id. There.

New Song

Actually, this ain't the one I mentioned on Friday, but I might put that one on at some point. I think there're probably lotsa people who could identify with this one, man. Download monster_in_my_head.mp3
