* 2022 PLAN

I'm in the midst of about 5,000 uncompleted projects, including the toilet paper album I started last 50/90, an album of Bigfoot songs I started two or three years ago, a dancing robot album I started nearly a decade ago during 50/90, and a "cell phone tower who wanted to be a tree" album also started during 50/90 many years ago. I'd like to get some of that actually done.

Plus, I want to leave time for spur-of-the-moment inspirations, collabs, and another EP of ukulele-based haunted beard songs. (The first two haunted beard EPs, including the one I did during FAWM 2023, are at the website link above, or search for Opinionated Whiskers at all the usual sites.)

So basically, I guess I'll just push forward and see what happens!

* BACKGROUND

In junior high a long, long time ago, I elected to take flute as my required instrument. Unfortunately, in my second year, I was put in a third-year class due to a scheduling conflict. Being so far behind everyone else made me miserable. As a result, I did . . . unfortunate things to my flute to sabotage it in order to try to get out of class.

The repair guy figured it out pretty quick.

Nonetheless, while I've always enjoyed a very active listening relationship with music, the whole experience pretty much killed any interest I had in making my own. Until over twenty years later, when for some reason I picked up a keyboard and a computer DAW. And, more recently, a ukulele.

And now, I'm loving every minute of it.

Thanks so much for the great comments while I was "out of the office" this past week. I really appreciate that you get what I'm going for!

@yam655

What you did with the brownie song was a work of genius. It is fantastic. Wonderfully done.

[avatar]

You are too kind. I have lots of ideas actually. Execution has always been my problem. You have quite a few songs. I always enjoy following your multi-song story arcs. Where should I start?

[avatar]
@yam655

That is a great interpretation of "What song number is this." I hadn't noticed "too way much" until I heard it in the song, but you pulled it off like it was meant to be that way. Well done!!

[avatar]

Really appreciate your listen and feedback on "The Man Who Could Fly" 👍

Thanks for the comment on 'Be Alive', glad it brightened your day!

@atitlan

Thanks for the comment on 'Olivia' - interesting that you should relate it to "Don't You Want Me'. I'd never have made that connection, knowing where the lyrics came from. I always enjoy those differences between how the writer and listener perceive a song.

[avatar]

thank you for your thoughtful and perceptive comments on the romantic age and my back up brain .

[avatar]

Thank you for your nice comment on Hazy Orange Moon!

[avatar]

Thanks for your comments on my songs; Floss-Picked Mind and For the Birds.
I appreciate it.

[avatar]

Hey thank you so much for listening to „for what it is worth“ and your kind words! :)

@sbs2018

Thank you for your nice comment on “Chase Me.”

[avatar]

Thank you so much. The lyrics became just as awesome as i thought they would with you performing. Thank you 💖

[avatar]

Hi there and thanks for the comment on Wild Carrick Shore. I agree that Gwyn has made the best possible use of my lyrics, I'm very happy with the result!

[avatar]

Yes yes yes I would Love of you did that song

[avatar]

Thank you so much for your kind comments

[avatar]

Thanks for the kind comment. You understood what I was trying to do and really means a lot!

@nadine

Thanks a lot, I'm glad you enjoyed my dish! I'm quite new to cooking, but a stir fry is quite easy. Unfortunately I was soooo focussed on producing this song, that I forgot to eat. Maybe that's where the anger came from 😂

@fuzzy

Thank for the Comment!
Yes, the citizens were talking throughout the piece, but hey, it was a festival and they were excited!

[avatar]

I'm thinking about writing you into a song (turnabout is fair play!) and I realized, I've never asked how to pronounce your name. I've been assuming "oh-dill-on" in my head....quirks of being only online friends, I suppose! How should I pronounce?

[avatar]
@chldomn5

Thanks for your comment! Yes I enjoyed playing that on guitar and felt like my emotion carried through quite well in the playing. Hope you have a good 5090 !

[avatar]

Thank you so much, I’m a huge fan of NIN, especially the earlier stuff. So I’m quite honored.

[avatar]

thank you for listening and for your comments. the polka dot popcorn and typewriter dress are gimmicks to make the listener envision the girl as a late night club hopper, when in fact she is a suspected terrorist with a price on her head,trying to stay one step ahead of her assassin. and the red licorice shoelaces are there to foreshadow the red streaks of blood in her hair after she is shot in the head. quite simply, i wanted to start off with a bubblegum song like prince's raspberet beret and morph it into a noirish taxi driver scenario,

[avatar]

Thanks for your nice comment!

[avatar]

Great!

@elesimo

No worries about the use of "he" in the song, but thanks for asking! 😊

@cts

Hey friend. Hope you're on the mend. I'm getting ready to head out for the day. Honey-do list is pretty extensive. I'll tag you back later on and we can talk shop.

[avatar]

Thank you for the lovely comments about My Giraffe. My mom did say giraffe that way. I think this is my favorite song because of that. I have been experimenting with a variety of techniques this year, i still like just me and my mandolin. Now back to listening and commenting.

[avatar]

Hey, thanks for coming back and listening to more of my stuff. I never actually gig, music is just a home hobby. I'm actually waaay too lazy for that haha sorry not sorry :P

[avatar]

Bear in mind that I didn't read this article, but it seemed like it might be up your alley. "Man With Incredible Beard Desperately Needs Kidney" https://www.nytimes.com/2022/07/15/style/modern-love-kidney-donor.html

Howdy! I left a message at your nifty website

@elesimo

I think I prefer "Beto", pronounced like in "Beto O'Rourke"...

...which is good, because I have no idea how to pronounce "Elesimo"! 😆

[avatar]
@elesimo

Yes! Beard song! 🧔🏽

@yam655

I'm a nontaster, so I have fewer tastebuds than normal people. Some bitter things I can't taste at all. (I lean in to the fact that I can't taste sugar as well as other people to just ignore it most of the time. My coffee was black, as it is a health food when it is black.) I used to think tea was mild, but then I started preparing it properly. The key is loose leaf tea, and using 2-3 times the amount recommended. Also, you need teas with some flavor, not just plain tea leaves. I like Earl Grey or a nice chai with anise or cloves.

@atitlan

Thanks for commenting on 'Androgyny' - when I fell on that chord progression I though of PSB, but couldn't place which song.

[avatar]

odilon, thanks for reviewing "Cowboy Music’s Come And Gone".

[avatar]
@davidkav

Thank you for your wonderful compliments on “The Space Deep Inside.” I am extremely behind in listening to songs. I WILL get there. Thank you for your patience! Keep writing. One song at a time! We got this!!

[avatar]

Thanks for your comments on my train song!

[avatar]

Well, as the lead singer of FAWM's 15th favourite metal band, "Glorious Disaster", I know a thing or two about the metal. Mostly that I let @zecoop do the mixing.

[avatar]

Hey, thanks for the kind words. I really appreciate what you do as well. I will probably do something vaguely musical before this thing is over, but I’m pretty busy and unmotivated at the moment 😀

[avatar]

Hey thanks for your comment on my song 'Can We Be Friends'. Really pleased you enjoyed listening to it. I hope what comes next doesn't disappoint! Have a great one.

@yam655

I'm delighted to see you here, too! The new bio is reduced length, so it is hard to have too much of a plan there, but I hope you think of a good one!
