…I pick the absolute worst possible times to have ideas for songs and riffs hit me.
I’ve got 2 songs down, and another 2-3 in various stages of creation.
I’m hearing wrock lyrics in my head when I’m trying to think of melodies. I cannot guarantee that if these songs ever see the light of day, that they will be wizard rock though.
It’s mostly down tempo, heavy but not totally distorted out music.
I have absolutely no time to work on, or record, any of it.
Which means I’ve probably got some sleepless nights ahead of me.
I haven’t had much time for any free reading over the past few weeks since school started again, but I just read “Eleanor & Park” on my daughter’s very, very strong recommendation.
Wow. Loved it.
After I was done, she was going on and on about how angry the end made her. I had to gently explain (more than once) that realistic outcomes are not always happy endings. Everyone doesn’t always end up together forever. I, for one, loved that the book ended the way it did.
She didn’t agree with me that there were a lot of similarities to “Stargirl” but that’s OK. Kind of weird, but kind of cool to be able to have these discussions with my daughter now.
