Inhale pink, Exhale blue.

Enough with all that bad junk. we have new songs up at smallshinythings.com. Tell me you love them and I hope are a little frightened of the new one I wrote. Lyrics below, better annotation there. Glomgold has been complimentary as well as entertaining and I think that's the cat's ass. I write so much because I write about who I'm not. There's a whole lot more of that than there is fact. I am boring in every way save in my imaginings of my possibilities.

I'm going to be attempting more html tags here because I'm trying to learn some for work. Here's my first effort:



My True Thoughts




And I'm going to ask you all to go and see Arethusa. I keep pointing you to the people I read on a day to day basis. I hope to share with you what I get out of them. It's also fun, because if they feel like returning the praise or being polite with some nod to me I know they won't because I asked them not to. So I'm free to compliment with impunity and no one can question my motives because I don't allow favors back. You can't do anything for me and that's a sort of freedom.

That said, I've had the closest thing to a crush on Arethusa one can have on a disembodied, silent voice. Well, now I know what she sounds like. Either way, there's no danger of me leaving Bucket for northern soil and Arethusa is articulate and interesting. I disagree with her thoughts a lot of the time, but she has such a poised presentation that I rarely do so publically. I like her brain and I love her sense of aesthetics. I bet she's a pisces. But a smart pisces with valid opinions and a refined idea of the world as something that very well could be beautiful. I wish I shared that.

I have so much to say, but ask me about the comment I got last time I valeted with Chris at some later date. I'm tired right now.

ok, i went back and found the anonymous comment. I would just like to go on record to say: of course it is about you! IT'S YOUR BLOG!! Duh. Isn't that one of the thing blogs are for? To vent frustrations and talk out problems? Some people focus on this, that, or themselves. And to be honest, you focus on lots of stuff. Dont' let dumbasses get you down Kev.

btw, funny equal rights comment you left on my post! lol

Arethusa is very crush-worthy in anyone's book, I think. She's fabulous.

Just went to your music page and am listening to All This Time. Nicely done. I have to tell you, it's my favorite song from Sting's Soul Cages album, which has remained in my top 10 albums for quite a while now. Not sure if you know this already or not, but Sting wrote the album based on a theme of loss and grieving (over his father's death) and father/son relationships. You definitely get a sense of the theme when you listen to all the songs together.

thanks kev. i'm listening to you from canada and feeling a bit home sick. i still have 2 weeks more or less before i'm back. apparently canada is a mecca of suppliers of gardening and growing and greenhouse products. who would have thought.

Miss you.

tappin' my toes to "lost and found"

makes me feel nostalgic for something that never was...

Arethusa said...

You really are too secretive with your opinions--you must share them with me more often for I love to spar! And I just want to know.

Thank you for such an admiring post. :)

I'm at the library so I can't listen to the songs just yet, but I do believe there are some lyrics here on your blog that I haven't commented on yet...

Arethusa said...

Oh. I'm Saggitarius. :p

I'm loving "Radio" lately.
What a killer (vengeful, morbid) song.

Haha! An old friend of mine from high school (whose name also happens to be Kevin) likes using "the cat's ass" expression too. I always thought he was mistaking it with "the cat's pajamas" but really, does either make any sense? And one sounds much more funny. I have just downloaded your Mancini take and I enjoy it a lot. I will check some of the new originals later, I have a backlog of several people's bands' stuff that I've yet to get too. Well, no sense in rushing stuff. I'll be back later; matters to attend to.
