smoke n mirrors

music what is it?

what is a song a song a song….?

i work on my album alone for better and worse

for better because its pure

for worse because i aint no virtue-oh-so

but what i got …

what have i got….?

i got a glaring individual eccentric idiosyncratic attitude

i do things my own way

it all ways yields re-salts baybee

i mean i cant seem to really go wrong

it doesnt (dark) matter what i do

i never come up empty handed ever and i never did neither

with just the right amount of everything

good enough to play it

but not good enough

to become fascinated with my own instrumental virtue-oh-sity….

i get the job done

the job is the song

the song is the thing

never minded some fancy playing

i mean i wish i could

but i can only be one me at a time

whatever that means

apocrypha is coming

why i wrote a little song last night….!

why what is that my how many numbered song?

aurora : dad, how many songs have you actually written?

me : thousands n thousands …(sigh)

so last night i add another to the stack

a short little number under 2 minutes

with a plaintiff slide part in stereo n some crunchy young guitar

mellifluous bass etc

wry sad ironic lyrics yeah you know the score , my sweet pigs

yeah you know how good this is good it will be good better be kill be

oh an old master bay be i be doing this song thingy so long

it is truly my calling my vocation my porpoise my ex- spurt-ease

yes i am good old narcissistic sissy space-ex rockin’ rollin’ on a river bay bee

uh huh oh mymy my how nice you look shimmyin’ to apocrypha

i was born to make this moosic for ya

solo  n behold

itll be there soon

in yer ipod in yer car stereo

and you’ll wonder


wonder how you ever lived without it!!

    Ah, you’re a comic genius anyway! No fancy playing, you’re not in the least fascinated with your plaintiff (or more plainly, plaintive?) slide and crunchy young mellifluous bass. But we are. You make it look so easy. A narcissist confessing to narcissism. So humble!

    don’t like to hear stuff TOO polished anyway….
    love to hear the humanity in things….the sound of the man in the music,
    a little catch in the throat here ‘n there, a touch of fret buzz.

    I started with my “air” guitar habit 25 years ago and now look at me…a fucking axe-man (!!! Haha! Keep it up with the good work. I like short songs, straight poprock ones a la “Wolfe”.
    Oh, and I wish Aurora could sing one song on “Apocrypha”. Send her to my university to make a PhD or a Post-doc stay when the time comes.
    Horns up Steve and keep uploading some vid stuff!

    Nice little ‘teaser’ vid …as u say to me…”keep havin a good time and smile”…

    Nice blog pic…..”Hi ya Sam !!!…hope u too- hav a great day, a life filled with great days” !!!


    Onto the song…
    What I like about , just the minute or so, is the ‘rock’ vibe…when artists use the various
    computer programs out here and there – to assist them in song creation- and yeah baby you
    can do it all yourself these days…that’s why and how I do it…but sometimes…with all the sounds
    and gadgets at a persons disposal…they lose the simplistic, but powerful, sounds of guitars-bass-drums.
    A great RnR album is really what we need …not a seizure causing , confusing, multi-layer, atmosphere-ick…
    mumbo – jumbo that shouts out “listen to how ‘cool’ I can make it all sound…yeah- its cool sometimes…
    But boring most times…just give us that RnR baby !!! I am very excited to hear the final product !!!
    And if ur using GarageBand…than I was right when I told u months ago that Garage Sutra was only a
    small stepping stone for the real creative engine that a software like that can be…for an artist like you…
    I remember you telling me that you would consider it…and the great thing is- it keeps the costs so low , but the quality still so high – that it all makes complete sense…with the ease and ability to create ur
    own ‘samples’ (that’s how I do it – I record my own samples) – and put it all in a cauldron and stir it up…
    till it ROCKS baby !!! and do it all in ur bedroom- in ur undies- with a beautiful woman at ur side !!!

    Great stuff Killer !!!

    Waiting, but NOT patiently !!!, here in the COLD city !!!
    Love that shirt !!! Where can I get one ???

    No ipod. No car stereo. No car…
    But anyway, it says in the apocryphal Gospel of Thomas: ‘Let he who seeks not cease until he finds’. Subtly different wording but substantially different meaning to the canonical version of the saying.
    Fair do’s.

    It sounds great. Sounds like music with an attitude. I’m looking forward to it.
