He wanted to kiss her....with every opportunity passing more quickly.
He wanted to kiss foreign not to.
He wanted to kiss her....alive were the lights it seemed...and her eyes.
He wanted to kiss her...yet not again to play the fool.

He wanted to kiss her as he wanted before, he wanted to kiss bed..on the floor.
But mostly it seems,
in their space between dreams,
over and again,
wanted her to kiss him.

Hello FRIENDS......
I wanted to let you guys know what's going on with the demo that I'm doing.....I started recording on Dec. 3rd and had planned to come out with 3 songs.....while in the studio, I realized that I wanted to change some things with the songs and how they were presented..

The good news is that I'm getting the sound that I want.....the other good news is that I will be going back to record another tune that I'm currently writing...the bad news is that this means it may take awhile to get these out. in the meantime, please forgive me for wetting your appetite while dinner was still cooking..........We can still look forward to the midnight snack.....

Thankful for friends

For obvious reasons, I have been thinking about things that I am very thankful for lately......But here, I thought that I would thank the people who choose to follow my updates....Since there are only eight of you, I feel that this is we go...

Brad--Brad is a drummer in Seattle. He plays in various bands around town and writes music also.....I have played with Brad before and he really seems like a "class-act". I'm sure he will excel in whatever he chooses to do.

Nathan--I had the pleasure of knowing Nathan for a short time...One of the most intelligent teenagers I've ever met.....I'm sure he will be somewhat wealthy...very soon...Funny too...

Fishbook--Amazing blog....This guy is a person after my own heart....Musician and Scientist...only he's probably a lot smarter than I am!!!

Steven Anthony---He has a few blogs.....Just a really good blogger....hits on basically all aspects of life...CAUTION---don't go to his food blog unless you want to get hungry!!!

Love,Love Melissa--She is a great writer...writes about some difficult things...I linked you to her TWITTER since she rarely updates her blog.

CINNIBONBON--Chick knows how to blog!!! I don't think she has ever commented on one of my blogs without pouring her heart out....completely! The passion for life that she holds is simply...amazing.

The Jerk---This cartoonist and animator is quite amazing. The creativity that comes across in his art is extraordinary...He writes his own comics....AND THEY'RE GOOOD!!!! Most of the time I find myself reading a newspapers comics section thinking...."The Jerk's comics are better than this!! Way better!"

Sally's Site--She draws amazing portraits of dogs....might sound weird...but it is strangely very, she is an all around GREAT person and great commenter on this blog..

So there you have it!! So thankful for each one of you who takes time out of your life to pay just a little attention to what I'm doing in mine. If anyone of you aren't friends of mine on Twitter---Facebook---Myspace.....please feel free to friend me there also.....THANK YOU>>>THANK YOU>>>>THANK YOU>>>>THANK YOU!!!!!!!!

So I got bumped from my scheduled recording session. From what I hear, until I sign with a Major, this tends to happen. Anyway, the new recording date is set for December 3rd.

I am actually really excited because I will be working with some very talented people in an amazing studio. Sort of nervous because I want it to I want it to.
I will have some video of the session also and will make that available. If anyone wishes to follow on Twitter...Myspace....or Facebook....It would definitely boost my ego...and maybe give you some laughs as well.

Current mood = National Lampoon-ish.

I am not easily blown away by newer artists....but I have to say I've been slapped in the junk by Owl City......this guy is amazing.....he writes songs with amazing M.I.L.F.'s..(Melodies I'd like to Fu^K)
I love the use of synthesized notes....unbelievable.
Listen to Fireflies and Meteor Shower to begin....from there, it doesn't really matter cause you will have already been hurricane'd into the haze of infatuation.

I wonder if he felt that his destiny would come to fruition in the next couple of years, like I do? Was he scared like I am? Did he feel like a failure like I do so many times? Did he have any regrets?

I imagine him looking to the rest of his life thinking "Here I go", but maybe not as sure of himself as many think.
Maybe, just maybe, he was like me. Hesitant footsteps in the dark, hoping to feel the ground underneath, yet arms searching in the blackness for structure, trying their best to prevent total collapse.

Breathing in, breathing out.

One foot in front of the other, though no clear destination other than here.....

Right here...

Here I go.

Someday and Random Thoughts

So here is a drawing I am playing around with....I can imagine this being part of an album cover someday....


--Sometimes I wish I was someone else...topping the list lately = Brandon Boyd.

--Every now and then I fear that my life is slipping away from me...recently has been one of the "now" times.

--I'm apprehensive about meeting succesful musicians because I fear they will see me as a fan rather than a fellow artist.

--I love the fact that I fall asleep dreaming almost every night.

These are pictures of the studio(Bear Creek Studios) that I will be recording in on Oct. 30th....I will be doing a 3 song acoustic demo and will put them on the myspace as soon as they are completed.
Bye for now friends.

I think that if the 10 year old me ever met me now, he would be happy with how things have gone so far........and that makes me feel good.

Like a wounded soldier, he stumbled through the door. Unable to muster the strength to feel, he laid down. Numb....
Had his beating heart and breathing lungs not been involuntary, they would have ceased due to a lack of desire to continue.
Where happiness and creativity once bloomed, now, only memories remained, written in sand, slowly being washed away with the tide.

500 Days of Summer and random thoughts

Saw the movie "500 Days of Summer" and I thought it was 500 ways of AWESOME! The scene where they show the dichotomy of 'Expectations' and 'Reality' perfect.

I wish I was touring right now.

Finished writing a song called 'Come Down', currently working on the 'Wonderland' song which I must be thinking about obsessively..thus the amazing dream last night about being lost in Wonderland....(One of the coolest dreams I've ever had, complete with white rabbits, Mad Hatters and silly riddles to solve.)

I hate driving...
When I finger-tap, it's just fluff...
I'm married to my acoustic, have affairs with my electric, and I'm seeing my piano on the side.

The music is still flowing like the River Jordan. I think its time to get into the studio to make some half-way decent recordings....

On a different note, I was glancing back and forth from my favorite snack to my digital camera and thought to myself...."This bowl of cereal has pretentious profile picture written all over it" I still love to play with my food....
Sorry mom.

Just saw Coldplay at the Gorge......I think I might just be able to do this thing.

Went to a show last night @ TOST that was pretty sweet. I'm looking to get together with a drummer and he invited me out to catch his band "Forget me nots" and I was lucky enough to see "The Rumptones" also.
It was great to hear a couple of bands that understand dynamics. And a drummer that's extremely Bad-AZZZZZZZZZZ!

If anyone ever gives me the know....the one where you get a card saying that a donation has been made in your yourself the money....

NEWSFLASH!!!! This is a horrible gift.......but here are some alternatives I will accept.

You can buy a house in my name, then give it to me
You can buy a car in my name, then give it to me.
You can take cash from an atm, and put it into my bank account
You can buy a computer in my name......then give it to me.
You can buy stocks in my name, then transfer them to my account.

To live.....loudly, and without being ashamed.
To have as much fun as possible.
To be a YES man.
To take risks.
To remember why I came here.
To appreciate everyone.
