It recently occurred to me that I have not been writing much lately. The complete absence of that typing sound was my first clue. This is surprising, since anyone who knows me, knows that I rarely stop talking about anything…even when asked politely. I’ve also noticed that some of my favorite bloggers have been in the same funk lately. Blogger, Merle Kessler (who would probably hate being referred to as, “Blogger, Merle Kessler”) recently noted that he’s been finding it “harder and harder to find anything funny in this stupid world.” I haven’t gotten to that point yet, but we’ll see how the rest of the day goes.
I think what I really need is a swift kick in the…er, I mean, what I really need is something to focus on (in addition to family and dog-related wacky misadventures.) I realized that even though I talk about posting some new music, I never really seem to get around to it. The truth is, I never feel that anything is ever really “done,” so I’m hesitant to post it here. Well, starting tomorrow, I’m going to put up a new piece of music every week.
This is an experiment, and like all experiments, people are going to get seriously hurt. Don’t get too excited, some of the pieces will be really short goofy things, while others will be longer stuff I’ve been working on. A lot of you will ask, “why does this crap all sound like Leo Sayer?” I can’t speak to that, but I will be disciplined enough to put out something every week for an indefinite period of time. Not all of the pieces will be iPod-worthy, but if you have a Zune, you’ll be fine. I’m still working on what to call this li’l project. I was thinking of “Weekly Music Dealie,” or “WMD” for short. Hmm, maybe I WON’T abbreviate that. How ’bout “Listen, Dammit!” or “Disciplinary Audio Enjoyment Product (In Stereo!)
Yeah, I’ll keep working on that.
