I never seem to even know HOW to pursue what I want…
especially when people attempt to inform me but “the way in which they
a. tell me
b. suggest that I go about it
are antithetical to “what “I” would do.
really gotta try again and do what “I” would do, and live with it.
only then shall I fail and succeed.
tail end of a conversation bout music.
most things don’t “do it” for me… NO, wait, most things don’t do it for me IN THE WAY THAT I WANT at the moment, that is, in the way that SAID THINGS DO do it for me. I like proverbial cocaine. thatis, High Stimulation.
something fun once, is fun a million times too.
And Brazilian Music.
and any (boorbaar) combination of these.
I just realized that what I have ALWAYS THOUGHT was THE MORDOR MOTIF from lord of the rings, is almost all of the same notes as THE RING MOTIF from lord of the rings. !!!
different tempo, context, symbolism, intstruments…. different resolution….. different harmonic context…. SAME MELODY. DANG!
how did I MISS that.
that IS like Wagner!
(said themes are both in the hobbit fims as well)
b C b CbAb……
slow… that’s it.
the RING motif, is, the same notes, fast, in strings, over f minor, moving to e minor, plus C B E….
OBVIOUSLY they would be related. man, that’s as cool as when it happens in wagner. wow.
p.s it’s actually B C B CB A-natural, not flat, in the “ring” motif.
Still haven’t heard how the Ayn Rand camp defends the fact that capitalism has a downward pressure to produce as little as possible and sell it for the most.
these clowns have to admit at some point that this results in making garbage and presenting it as treasure, the very thing that they accuse socialists of, yes?
isn’t that what capitalism and oligarchy are doing?
why else is pop music these days nothing but commercial GARBAGE?
ain’t apologizin, eat it. guess I’m old now.
no, I ain’t old, I’m educated and have good bloody taste. never liked most pop music. only reason I liked James Brown (and really, is that pop music? was it ever?) is cause I happen to dig the rhythms and the harmonies and the fact that they repeat a lot. it’s happenstance. if they weren’t as they are, I’d pass over James Brown, as I do a lotta funk that doesn’t have “certain” chords and “certain” rhythmic feels and “isn’t repetitive such that it pulls me in and I want more and more of it.”
still haven’t heard from the Ayn Rand Camp where they get off thinking that capitalism doesn’t unnecessarily (at this point in history) encourage
Willful STINGINESS. rather than actually thinking and actually caring and actually deciding WHAT CONSTITUTES a GOOD JOB at something, a thing WORTH doing.
not just DOING It, regardless of it’s meaning and place in the general scheme of things, if it has one at all.
SEE? I HAVE LEADERSHIP SKILLS!!! hahahaha (this is a joke, but it isn’t)
“James Brown is God.” no joke. not god, just awesome. hows that for a disclaimer.
… I don’t suppose “UNPAID GIGS” were always a lot cooler in all ways other than money, than PAID GIGS.
but it seems that the model these days is
-teach people to think that chicken-feed is in fact the greatest meal on earth
-pay the poorest people on the planet (children in 3rd world countries, it seems) as little as possible to make the thing, as cheaply as possible.
-sell the stuff for a shit ton of money to said “dumbed-down people who don’t know better”
-completely ignore anything cultural, historic, intellectual, feeling, human, ANYTHING other than this, reducing people who DO care about
anything other than money
pushing those of us who DO care
too desperation in the process.
man, corporations, if all you care about is money
that is a sad fuckin state of affairs man.
I want no part of your jive-ass garbage machine.
go to hell.
I stick with my unpaid but human and communal and enjoyable and life-affirming gigs.
I never seem (unless I like what I’m doing, which means it’s never “work” (unless the work is fun) ahem
I never seem to want to take more than one step at a time towards something (when I am “actually” taking steps, I mean.)
thiS THIS Would be the reason for my new found “keep my house tidy” thing, where I am um, not letting things become a mess….
it’s only because I know, from THOUSANDS of past experiences, that if there are two, three, ten, 100 pieces of “whatever” to organize, pick up, through out, that will be
one, two nine and ninety-nine too many, respectively.
if there are ever “more than one thing to do”, I simply won’t do the work.
as such, we keep it such that there can never be more than ONE piece of misplaced laundry, ONE this, one that, etc.
any more is too much for me of little concentration when there is no interest.
needless to say, when there is interest, I can go all night.
MUSIC is a tag in this post because it would be an example of one thing that does not feel like work and IS done all night.
you know, I really do know
A LOT of
people, and a high percentage of them are super cool.
this could be and (who shallst I kid)
already HAS been VERY USEFUL.
there are always, for lucky me,
kind folks abounding, to advise, and to play music, and offer kind words, and most excellently to
BE in FUN AWESOME MUSICAL PROJECTS.
hell with all that NORMAL shit that we sometimes have to do for money,
that ain’t the spice or MEANINGFUL stuff in life.
