              So, while awaiting your reply, I've already composed a catchy (generic, country) tune; in my mind's ear I'm hearing Willie or Waylon singing it as the refrain to a hit song.



              Some great picks already for this F.I. -- to coin a song title, I'm lovin' ev'ry one!




              It is a good one, isn't it? Here's the song... Dan Tyminski of Union Station.

                I was 7 or 8 when I first heard these songs. I can't explain it... but they somehow burn deep inside me in a sad way. I would love to capture some of this in a song I write someday...




                I came to Laura Nyro much later, but in my late 20's I played the CD of "Eli and The Thirteenth Confession" for weeks at a time.

                    That was interesting. Bright Eyes/Conor Oberst is one of those bands I felt like I *should* like, but nothing had grabbed me up until this.



                    How did the novella turn out?

                      That's a great song. But those trebly guitar arpeggios take me to a precise time and place the same way that a snare drum routed into a gated reverb does.

                        Jules Shear productions always suck. Seriously... I've been listening to him for 35 years and I don't think he's ever released an album who's production wasn't wrong in one way or another. But the songs... are always great.

                            This mini-doc below represents the biggest dose of contemporary rock I've had in a while...



                            This is a side project for one of my 3DW pals. His own band, Repeater, has a small but loyal following, but his bandmates in Fear and the Nervous System are pretty well known...

                            The chorus seems a little weak... I think it needs more lasers.

                                I've actually been listening to the Taxi Driver sndtrk for a while now. Great stuff!



                                The novella was about a boy who couldn't die, the other children who treated him with considerably less restraint because of that, the effects of growing up in those circumstances and all of the ethical issues that all suggests.

                                With the benefit of hindsight it has it's good points and its bad points. I've always been decent with ideas but 1) the execution can be lacking sometimes, and 2) I tried some things intentionally that didn't work and some things didn't work simply because it was my first major work of prose and I wasn't the greatest writer.



                                --

                                Conor Oberst suffered from youth for a long time.. I discovered him when Cassadega came out so I thankfully missed a lot of the whinier stuff - but for a guy that's been putting out records since he was sixteen he really does have a way with words.



                                "If I loved you, well that's my fault." (who hasn't felt like that, eh?)
