I got caught using the bathroom as a spray booth
^Aw, but spicy food will do that to everybody once in a wh--- oh, you mean painting a guitar?
^ Spraying bike parts and the cat had purple specks on her head. That's how I was rumbled
I'm not very good at writing lyrics.
Im sure they are fine man. Lyrics are weird imo, they don't have to be profound or insightful if the delivery is great and fleshes out the song, right?
Just make every other word 'Misery'. Works for some dude in a band everyone loves here.
Lol I've got something like 7 songs to put lyrics to within the next week and a half.... I can handle the delivery but the writing part just isn't intuitive to me. It's always the part of a project where I start to get into that "my god, what I'm I doing, I'm terrible at this" funk where suddenly every mix sounds bad, the vocals are grating, progress and motivation slow down and I have to give myself a time limit to get stuff done. Even right now, I sat down to write and I ended up here instead.
Story of my life.
Fun story: I've been on SSO less often lately, and it's mostly because I've been off work.
What I mean to say is that I'm very productive at work.
I got a new PSU for my computer and it was faulty.
I took pretty much all of January off (I go back to work next Monday) in the hopes that I could write and record some new music. And I'm stuck in a spot where I can't write lyrics, the mix sounds bad, there's zero coherency between any of the songs, and it feels like I've wasted my vacation making a bunch of garbage.
I went and got some coffee. Re-tracked some things I didn't like. I feel better now.
It's the little things.
It is. But also, I bit off arguably more than I thought at first, and getting close to the end of an arbitrary time limit is starting to cause some stress. 7 songs might have been a bit much. Trying to do everything from scratch in a month: Write stuff, track all the instrument, lyrics, vocals, mix it, etc. The idea is that it's sort of "game jam" style where you just do what you can in the limit time and put out what you come up with. It's not the end of the world if the result isn't amazing. Or if I cut some songs. But I don't want to put a whole load of garbage out under my name, or anything that's going to embarrass myself.
kind of sad that only one person got my shou sugi ban joke in omzig's thread.
