One or Two

Continuing on with this February Album Writing Month theme…

There was a challenge posted to write a song using basically one chord for a minimum of one minute in the song.
I played a lot of “G” but other than that, I’m not sure what all happened in there
So here it is, how it is, and whatever I’m playing.

Honey, Please

I am participating in something called “February Album Writing Month” which I discovered through my brother.

It’s basically where anyone who needs a little kick in the pants and some motivation to get some music writing done can go and attempt to write at least 14 songs in the month of February. Check it out if you’re curious to know more at http://www.fawm.org

I have 2 completed songs and a few incomplete songs… and many more to go,

But here is this for now!
Thanks for listening!

Without You – Original Song

By yours truly.
I wrote this almost ten years ago, but I used to play it at shows and people seemed to like it and be able to relate to it.
It’s been one of my favorites to sing & play (back in the day when I actually did solo shows 🙂  )
Now it’s on the inter-web!
Hope you like!

Vio-lin-lin-lin

Sometimes I talk about things.
Lately, for the past year or so maybe, I’ve been talking about wanting to play violin.
I like to dabble with instruments, you know.
So this really nice guy at church offered me a violin that he’d won on eBay in a lot with other instruments.
Of COURSE I said yes.
Today I bought some rosin for the strings, and now I can play it!
So today I played violin,
And I recorded this little ditty.
Please don’t judge too harshly,
It’s my first day!

Watson, my dear Watson.

So this time around,
It was really difficult,
And I’m not sure why.
Still, something is not quite right.
I mean,
It seems like she’s got a pretty uncomplicated face.
Perhaps because it’s so darn perfect.
She’s also pretty much the only girl that can pull off this haircut
And still look beautiful,
So don’t go trying it just because she got away with it.
You will most likely be disappointed.

Also, if you like music,
Here is a shameless plug for myself.
I recorded this song today in my basement.

Friday = weekendstart.

I have an official ad for my music on a blog!
I feel so super incredibly special,
Especially since her art is really sweet.
She even made me look cool. HA!
Check it!
In other news,
My brother’s band is playing their first show tomorrow night
They’ll be performing a few songs that I wrote
SO that will be fun to observe!
I tried my hand at screen-printing T-shirts today
And there were things I liked about it
And things I didn’t like
But all in all,
They turned out pretty okay.
Pff.
See for yourself.

There are many colours and styles,
Because the shirts are all upcycled!
HURRAH

In yet OTHER news
I finally have Spotify.
Who knows how to use it
But eventually I’ll get the hang of it.
I usually do when it comes to these things.
I like “EET” a lot by Regina Spektor.
It has such a nice melody to it.

I made lots of links in this post. I wonder if they will work?

So that is that
And this is this

OH also.
I found a way to wear my hair while I grow it out that I don’t hate.
I just pin up the mullety business going on in the back
And shwoop the top around until satisfactory
Give it a few squirts of hair-spray
Or some kind of ploppy products and
SHLOOP!
Hair that I hopefully will stop cutting for a while!
