I would say.....
A year or so ago I wrote a song I have, tentatively, named The Edge.
I had tried this song a multitude of ways.
It is in an open tuning and is kind of bouncy in its way.
I added funky drums, latino drums, synth sounds.....
Ugh.  The list goes on.  I could find nothing that would work until this week.
I was tooling around in garage band and found a drum beat that just said:
“I am for that song ‘The Edge’.”
I pushed it around and tried it out with a couple companion beats.
It fit almost too perfectly.


so...
442 is now:

The Edge
Clandestine Lament
Glazed, Lazed, & Not Quite Full of Praise
Tangentially Yours
Out From Under Chemical Starlight
The City and the Damage Done
Full Circle Dionysus


Tune:

Thrust! - White Zombie - La Sexorcisto, Devil Music Volume 1

Full Circle and Out From Under

I have now recorded the second Demo of Out From Under Chemical Starlight.
I am really close to a finished product for it.
I have recorded the first Demo of Full Circle Dionysus...
It makes me realize I want more instrumentation on that one...
So it will be awhile for that one.

Tune:
Full Circle Dionysus - Demo 1 - Wonderhead - 442

And Yet Another Song

I am...
Like...
On fire or something....

Full Circle Dionysus

It is another soft acoustic thing.

This makes the album a little different than I had seen it.

I did want it it all in 4/4....

I am thinking:

X in 4 of Urban Dreams and Decay...Where X is however many songs.

So Far:

Clandestine Lament
Glazed, Lazed, & Not Quite Full of Praise
Tangentially Yours
Out From Under Chemical Starlight
The City and the Damage Done
Full Circle Dionysus

My Complete Love and Adoration of Scrivener

How could you love anything more as a writer....

Well...
As far as tools go
It has them all....
And more.
Here is a beauty shot to me:


That is my Kindle 3 with my book in progress.
I like to read it on the Kindle to get my feel for the experience.
I managed to get a cover on and everything.
Table of Contents...
Here is my only gripe:

Amazon has no gen support for PPC Macs.
Like everyone in the world ran off and bought an intel mac.
Did I have one at one time?
Yes...
The kids killed it with a spill.
Can I afford to just run off and get another?
HELL NO.
I can spend 275 dollars for a G5 though....which is what I did.
And scrivener?
It is, hands down, the best $50 a writer could spend.


Tune - The Only Thing That Shines - Shriekback - Oil and Gold
