Yesterday was a fairly long day in the scheme of lots of things to do in a day. A hair trim, a lunch meeting where I met a twitter friend for the first time, a late lunch with another new friend doing PR for me, then back to the studio to mix more music for a project that is taking literally forever, then off to a friend’s birthday, followed by yet a second birthday party.
Lots of running around. Lots of chatting. Lots of fun.
What’s random about it? Well at the first birthday party I ended up meeting someone that had a connection to another friend of mine. That was pretty random but cool. She was very nice and interesting to talk to for the brief time I got to chat with her. Then at the second birthday party I ran in to a friend I hadn’t seen in quite a long time. I didn’t even recognize her right off the bat, instead she pulled aside another friend I was with and asked her if I was me. To which my friend said yes. That was pretty random. To run into someone like that and have them recognize ya.
We chatted for a bit and caught up on what we’ve been up to. At which point she started singing one of my songs to me saying she listens to the CD all the time. That was pretty wild to be there in a party at a Hollywood venue having people standing around you as someone starts belting one of your songs in front of them.
For today’s rewind into the past I’ve gone with a song title that could be taken any number of ways. That positive value of hope. That’s the direction I’m looking at it from, not the let’s get together because we believe it would be nice point. I’m thinking wouldn’t it be nice if people stopped saying the things they will do and actually started doing them to show their actions of the words they speak. Of course I would appreciate it or rather think that it would be nice if they were all good things that people were doing, not destructive things.
Speaking of actions… The Beach Boys certainly had their share of action and weirdness right? I’ve only heard the stories. But one this is clear, they wrote some great songs that people still sing and play today. Of course for the time that this particular song was recorded the production was huge. Lots of instruments and arranging that took tons of time to pull off. What’s changed? Music still takes time to pull off.
Wouldn’t it be nice if we all owned the music we love? Don’t own this? Go buy it now!
