So for those who didn't know, I play an instrument. Do I play it well? Not really. But I play it. Recently, I've been recording some music, doing my musical thing kind of as a way to chill out and learn something new. Which is working okay for me I guess, but then again, how would I know? You know when you hear some amazing artists make something that you could listen to over and over again, and it just awes you to hear how they were able to make something so beautiful? Yeah, something gets lost in translation when you're the one holding the guitar, or the mouse and bass in my case. Hmm, that'd be a cool name for an album. . .anyway, that's just the point. I don't know if I'm making the best music ever, or if I'm making the same trite crap I hate listening to. Maybe my musical confidence is shot, who knows? When I hear some of the stuff I've been working on, its all partially done, even stuff that I did years ago, because I always can think of something else to do to it. Which is a good thing right? I mean I'll never be so confident that I'll place my music on the doorstep of the world and dare them not to fall in love with it instantly. Though, I will admit, I so want to do that. That having been said, I will say that its like I'm at the verge of making several good songs, and I just can't finish it. Its times like this when I really wish I had a band that didn't do anything else in life, but make music. Its not like I don't do other things, its just that my schedule is pretty much the best ever for solo pursuits. I only work weekend nights. That means during the week, I am free to do any and everything I want. And its pretty sweet. Until you realize that you're alone because all the cool social stuff that happens on the weekend happens while you're happily working away. And that, my good friends, does suck.

Anyway, I think this is enough of my random talking. Go do something else, I'm going to go write some blues. Or something.
