An introduction into the new album “Eat Dirt” New album “Eat Dirt” available early 2012.
Forever is composed of nows – Emily Dickenson
When I was a kid, the worst thing someone could say to me was, “tomorrow”. I wanted everything to be done today. I still feel the same way. It’s so hard for me to wait for anything at all.
But accomplishments and progress can only be achieved through steps.
One has to accept the fact that there isn’t anything more to do at times.
I played at a hospital today. I went from room to room and played on my guitar and sang.
Question; if you could do anything at all today, and there were no limits imposed on you whatsoever, what would you do? Would you sleep the day away? Where would you go, if anywhere?
I only hate tomorrow when thinking about it today, but I love tomorrow if it’s a new day.
It’s times like these, as the weather gets ever colder, that I want to stay inside and avoid the progressing New York cold. Just as things are getting busier for me, what with the prepping to shoot the music video, the signing with the Capitol records team, etc, that I need to be up and on the go. Still I can’t help being ever more cerebral, and I find myself writing much more than I was over the summer. Inspiration strikes when it may in my case, and everyday I am getting more ideas and jotting them down. I suppose the cold weather is a sort of inspiration to me. What are your sources of inspiration? It would be interesting to hear everyone’s perspective on the subject. I went to see one of my favorite DJ’s spin last night for my sisters birthday. DJ Mess Kid, and I do have to say that DJ’s are an inspiration to me. I downloaded the movie Gaslight to play for my friends since that’s one of my favorite movies. Movies are an inspiration to me. People are an inspiration to me. People who have done amazing things with their lives, overcome opposition, lethargy, passivity and the like.
I’ve been enjoying seeing all the lyric inspired art submitted by you guys, http://creativeallies.com/contests/289-Create-Lyric-Inspired-Poster-Art-for-Susan-Justice/project_brief
Listening to lots of music as well. I usually go through different phases, right now a friend told me about David Bazan, so I’m listening to him. As well as my all time favorites, death cab for cutie.
Everything is a journey, or part of the journey; I hope your journey leads you to good things.
