I'm playing a two-hour gig at some small faux-trendy cafe in a small touristy village out of town this coming Sunday. I'm looking forward to playing, as I'll get a chance to perform a whole lot more of my more mellow moody atmospheric acoustic pieces to what will undoubtedly be a tiny audience.
Sailability on Sunday was rained-out... we had a couple of inches of rain fall, but I still managed to take someone out for a sail all the same... pouring rain and absolutely no wind. We did manage to set-up the boats for the first time this new season and make sure everything was working correctly, which it was.
I'm going to have to sell my little sailing boat, which breaks my heart. I almost did sell it about a year ago, but changed my mind then. But now financial circumstances are at a point where it's a necessity to have to sell it, fack it.
Lancelot's Pram? Two new albums instead of just one? Well, why not.
I'm thinking of making two albums out of all the original material of mine I've got laying around at the moment... there's easily enough for two albums' worth of my musical crap.
I'm thinking of doing one as a purely acoustic thing, with just guitar and vocals, just one-off takes, recorded live wherever I find myself. A lot of my current batch of material is very 'melancholic' and probably wouldn't work with a full production, but... I don't really know. That stuff'll probably turn into "PurpleGreenBlue" as an album. I think I just need to record the bastards and get them out of my head and get on with things again.
It's not as though anyone will listen to them. This I know. No-one listened to the last one.
Then the second album will probably have more of a 'band'/ensemble feel to it. Lots of silliness and production and drum loops and all that stuff. No name for it yet, but maybe just "It's"? Who knows, as I sure don't. But yeah, if they come out within six months of each other [three albums released in under eighteen months... but who gives a fig?], it's not as tho anyone is going to buy or listen to them, even if I give 'em away, you know?
But I'm just thinking aloud. Maybe I won't do anything, you know?
It's not so easy when the 'audience of one'* isn't listening anymore either.
* The "audience of one", is, of course, myself... or maybe it was Paige?
I'm stuck at home again... even driving home from Sailability on Sunday arvo saw me fall sick suddenly without warning, right in the car. This is driving me absolutely batty, and motivates me to do absolutely nothing-at-all with anyone.
I found this very interesting... very...
"Apathetic agnosticism (also called pragmatic agnosticism) is the view that there is no proof of either the existence or nonexistence of any deity, but since any deity that may exist appears unconcerned for the universe or the welfare of its inhabitants, the question is largely academic... that thousands of years of debate has neither proven, nor dis-proven, the existence of one or more deities (gods). This view concludes that even if one or more deities exist, they do not appear to be concerned about the fate of humans. Therefore, their existence has little impact on personal human affairs and should be of little theological interest." (Source)You have to remember that I spent three years of Bible College and a few years as a full-time protestant Missionary/Evangelist (yes, seriously)... in the end, a lot of it is all just bull$#it, in my experience (experiential, sociological, theological and philosophical). So, being able to consider things from a different perspective is always refreshing for my own journey.
