30 days. Posted in some spam threads. Not going to fight the case, they were completely fair. So that's where I am. I was going to do some messages for all my friends here that are stereotypical of what I'd say to them, but then I realized that they all were varying ways to say, "Shut up, you're wrong, I'm right," so I'll skip it.
So I'm kind of bored right now and decided that I should make a this list, since I've been talking about making it for weeks now. Then I thought, who better than the wonderful people of UG to help me with this list. So if you have anything you'd like to add to the list, just post a comment and I'll add it. I will say though, if you recommend long books you will be met with my scorn. It's taken me over a month to get through Fight Club, a long book would take me many months. Without further delay, the stuff for this list that I immediately came to my mind

That's all I can think of at the moment, fire away UG.
I'm kicking around a 4th verse/stanza right now, so this is the nearly finished. I think it needs a little cleaning up, mostly in the 3rd verse, but it's decent. I'm working on a little joke song too and I'm hoping to have it finished by next week.
Since the thread was closed, due to an annoying title, I shall repost my newest song hither. If you're curious as to what the title means, don't worry about it, it would only make sense to the girl I wrote it for, who dumped me the day after I came up with the melody. I'm still ironing out a few things for the music, but it's pretty much finished. And now because I'm too busy thinking about her and various other things I shall just quote the thread I posted in the S&L forum
This won't sound as good as it could because the entire song is based on the chords and the phrases are based on the melody I sing, but I just want critique for the lyrics themselves. At the risk of sounding conceited, I must say I'm rather impressed with this song, the chords are lovely, and the melody is very nice. As for the lyrics, I don't think they're amazing, but they're very nice. Of course my standard for amazing lyrics is Dylan so Anyway without further ado...
She got this long, long brown hair And it flows, oh it flows everywhere But she, she had to say goodbye Now I, I miss her all the time Got a smile, lights my world But now and then, she's a cruel little girl So she, she left me high and dry
And I miss her, miss her all the time
I won't lie, and say I won't move on But if she comes back I'll have open arms But I know somewhere deep inside She ain't comin' back, but I won't cry And I know she'll think I'm strange When I walk off this fearsome stage But I don't care, don't care anymore
Cuz now life, life is just a bore
It's kind of funny, because I wasn't in love with the girl this song is about, but she broke up with me the day after I got a sad melody. And just so you know, its not a "I'm desperate and want you back" song, or a "I'm so sad and lonely" song. Its just my way of ventting and getting that off my chest, a goodbye song if you must
I was banned for my sig being too long. Primus' note said that as soon as I shorten it he will unban me.
Also, I was lurking the FOTB, and for anyone who doubted it Coryklok is perma'd. I won't go into details, because I'm sure it should be the mods who decide what we know and what we don't, but from what I gather he hasn't been very good at all this month, and this was just the last straw.
Normally I think my dreams aren't going to be cool enough to post here, but this one is important. I had this dreaming I was flipping through the songs on my iPod and I came across 2 songs I didn't know, for some reason they had purple text saying the artist, album, and song name, one was a John Lennon, but I've forgotten the name, melody and lyrics. The next one though I still remember though, it was an SRV song, with the album art being the most epic picture of him ever and no that photo doesn't actually exsist, called Ice Cold Shuffle. It was a lot like Dirty Pool, a slow 12-bar where he sang a line then did some mind-blowing lick. I don't remember any of the words except for the first 2 lines so I will work with them until I have a finished product, but the first 2 lines were something like,
Don't you touch me babe, you know I'm ice cold
I said don't you touch me, you know I'm ice cold
Now just imagine that with the best licks ever, a slow 12-bar form with the bassist and drummer so groovy and chilled you would think they played in a Cool Jazz band, and SRV singing.
So what do you few people reading this think, is it any good, should I toss it, should I just keep the dream in my mind until I have inspiration, or are John Lennon and SRV contacting me from beyond the grave so I can record the songs they've been writing up in heaven. *bum bum bum* Kind of makes you wonder how the music scene is going up in heaven, if there is a heaven. *bum bum bum*
I saw Dave Alvin & The Guilty Women last night. You probably haven't heard of them but he's an incredible guitarist, great singer and has great stage presence, his jokes are also pretty great to. The band is pretty tight to and works amazingly well for people who have been playing for a little less than a year. The band is Cindy Cashdollar on slide, she's played with all kinds of people like Van Morrison and Rod Stewart, Christy McWilson, a great singer, Amy Farris, the best fiddler I've ever heard of the very few I've heard and know the names of, Sarah Brown, who as Dave put it has her own page in the book of Blues For Dummies, and Lisa Pranketz, who did a solo with Cindy that was amazing and I thought her drum kit was going to explode from the awesome and sheer force hitting it as hard as she could. If you haven't heard of Dave Alvin you're missing out, he's amazing check out The Blasters, his old band, and some of his solo stuff. And the warm up act was a great to it's a local band call Rex & The Misery Boys, I thought I wouldn't like them because they were country but I really loved them.
