I made these tonight. i'm not totally happy with how they turned out but i didn't put a ton of time into them, so i'm not really surprised. anyways. one of them's just me messing around, the other one's a version of a melody that i made up a while back.
I blink myself into conciousness most mornings. It's slow to the point that I don't know it's happening until its effects are irreversible, like when you start writing on unlined paper and don't notice that your words are slanting until it's too late. And then I'm awake, in the loosest sense of the word, and my alarm is a jumble in my ears, and my body is heavier than it's ever been, and I play the game where I weigh the pros and cons
It's a Intrinsic disease They told me, A unfortunate byproduct Of a Non-lucid mind. A mind of someone Who is discontent With the real world. Well, If that's the case, I don't mind Being sick. Because in a world Scarred by dark roads, Dark choices; It's okay To look up at the sun And imagine Happy little fantasies.
tried to upload this yesterday but it was all slow and glitchy and I had to give up. anyways. some more music, this collection using more or less the same theme throughout? just experimenting a little. it might be awful.
these can still count for summer of stories, right? as makeup for the days i missed?
I spent most of today Floating up in space My head in the clouds My heart in the air I kissed a solar eclipse Right on the lips A secret that only us And the stars could share I spent most of tonight Fighting back my tears Because after a long day without caring I'm left with my fears And I just don't know How I can live With the weight of the world Resting on my shoulders
I walk down the street. It’s evening, The sun is still out, The grass is glowing, And my face is probably burning. I slip on my sunglasses and see The world through a different lense, Literally. As I turn the corner I almost run over two girls. They both have ice cream in their hands, They both have pigtails, They both are living life to the fullest, And they’re both laughing. As I continue walking,
i was going to put up this whole elaborate thing based off a prompt. then i realized it was getting too late to finish and i didn't know what i was doing and it was in a google doc. so i'll have to do it tomorrow if i haven't thought better of it by then. instead, here's some more music.
more music. not sure what the inspiration for this is. i was kind of just messing around.
There's a couple chords I don't like, I think the F sharp works in some places but the F sharp and A chord should probably be F natural and A ... and probably that's completely meaningless to anyone here who doesn't have perfect pitch, which is most people, but i'm kind of just thinking on paper.
houseboat life, the screenplay, i'm stopping posting for the time being because i'm in the middle of some major plot edits and it would be weird to keep posting things that i was already working on. i'll probably put the edited ones up sometime if i ever get it into a state of relative coherence. this is just music. inspired by scenes? sometimes i do music inspired by my screenplays. just as a helping-me-think exercise.
(The audio recording is of the last two stanzas which I recorded while picking blueberries. If you listen closely, you might be able to hear the pie tins and birds.)
Follow the shade in the morning for as long as you can, Hopping down the row, down the hill, from bush to bush. The way the sunlight falls through the hedgerow and the trees above it Leaves some shady splotches and then some sun-soaked bits.
both of these are like songs that i composed with two different screenplays i'm sort of working on in mind? the first one from the same screenplay as the last one was from, the second one from one i'm only kind of writing. i think they're decent? they might not be.
