Hey guys! I really really really want a songwriting challenge, but all the stuff online is stupid. “This is the title of your song.” Who cares? What the hell kind of challenge is that?!
So here’s what I want you guys to do! Give a tempo and a key, and I’ll writing something based on that. You can also feel free to give more detailed suggestions like “play clean” or “use distortion” or “use a shitload of effects.”
C’mon! Make it happen! I have creative energy and I’m bad at focusing it! How about it?
I’m trying to learn the drums.
Without a drum kit.
So I can program drums into Logic.
Do you people fucking realize how difficult this is?
When someone says they listen to everything except rap and country, they’re saying that they like Tiny Tim more than Johnny Cash.
Rock music back in the day: best thing ever
Pop music back in the day: worst thing ever
Rock music today: worst thing ever
Pop music today: best thing ever
Seriously. Pop music today is more exciting and controversial than rock music today. We have no Marilyn Manson anymore. We have Lady Gaga. We have no AC/DC anymore. We have Ke$ha. Instead of faceless quantized pop stars with fancy haircuts, we have faceless quantized rock bands with fancy haircuts.
Part of it bums me out because rock music sucks now. Part of it is really exciting because it will be a lot easier for me to carve out my place in this era.
Man of Steel Trailer and LOTR Music
Apparently music from Lord of the Rings was used in the Man of Steel trailer. There are two schools of thought here. One side is saying LOTR has music that can’t be reapplied to anything else. The other side is saying that trailers borrow music from unrelated movies all of the time and it’s not a big deal.
As a comic lover, movie lover, and music lover/musician, I feel like I should weigh in on this:
SHUT UP, YOU FUCKING NERDS.
