In a world drowning on the news of Tiger Woods it’s funny how we can get so wrapped up in someone we “think” we know. The media speculation surrounding Tiger is insane. All we know is, he crashed his car on private property. We know it’s there’s no Florida law that requires him to talk to the police. Beyond that, it’s all speculation. We have forgotten that there’s privacy here.
For me, I’ve forgotten to divide up time working on a bunch of songs that I’ve had in pre-production for a while this year. Many of which need lyrics or those that have them need refinements. In a way I’ve been procrastinating due to other musical endeavors and additionally some plain ol’ lack of drive. I’m beginning to find that drive again. As projects are getting finished and I’m without computer, I’m working on not popping in a movie on the laptop and instead putting the creative word cap. Knocked out lyrics last night and this morning.
Happiness should be a return of the studio computer. Then it will be fever time to get the library CDs in order for a meeting later this week. Shouldn’t take too long to get them all together, but now I’ve got more people wanting to get in. Thus I’m gonna have to start creating a guideline to make them do the work for me, so I can just check it. Additionally I’ve found another person that is interested in representing it, and he has a good business head – that’s a plus.
Sometimes the act of forgetting is on purpose. Such is the case for today’s song by Chris Whitley. The idea that you’d forget someone every day is a bit weird. Wouldn’t that be more like you didn’t know them at all in the first place? That or you’re really attempting to harsh in letting someone go that had a huge effect on you.
I really like the relaxed vibe going on. There’s lots of guitar layers going all around. Then there’s Chris’s vocals riding over the top of the tom and guitar groove. It’s a sultry blue look back on an element of life. It’s touching, it’s devastating. It sinks in and enters you from all aspects. At least it does me. So much feeling oozes out. That’s something great to remember.
