What do you do, when you’ve barely slept a wink, and even after injecting a couple of pints of coffee, you’re still a wreck?
Why of course, you make NEON SPIES.
Considering the circumstances, under the tune in question was produced, I’d call it a masterpiece.
A masterpiece in persistence that is. Maybe not music.
And maybe not a masterpiece. Maybe a solid musical thing.
(Editor’s note: This blog was written based on notes of something that happened a few months ago)
So, I was visiting some familiar places back in Northrend.
I rode my trusty wolfy like heck, all across the continent. I met some people, ate some cheese, and let the lightning flash.
The weather was mostly lovely, albeit a bit cold. On specially lazy days, I enjoyed sitting on the pier with my fishing pole. Then I got back to bullying some piggies and help strangers to find their lost luggage.
It was all fun – for about 30 days. Then I was happy to get back home.
Afterwards – this was weeks after my return – it turned out, that a humble musical thing had followed me home. I recognized it… I think I first heard the thing in Dragonblight… Yes, I think that’s what the place was called. Then I casted my spell and made BLOOMINGUS to come alive.
I also considered getting some letters on top of my head, that says “salty”. But after a serious thinking – of about 1.1 seconds – I decided not to. Because I’m not insane.
No wait, I am!
Earwormed in 2022:
– By-Tor And The Snow Dog by The Rush (again?)
– Mother People by Mothers of Invention
– Secret Messages by ELO (again?)
– Every song by Genesis and Aphrodite’s Child (again and again)
– Every second song by the Move
– The Blues Walk (the theme of “Levyraati”), with lyrics of my own (“ei se mitään…”)
– Beat It by Mike Jackson (the stupid, but oh so lovely bass part)
So much musical stuff that harassed me…
On the other hand, TADAA didn’t bother me at all. In fact, I didn’t even remember I had such a tune.
That’s something we musicians like to call, “being professional”.
From now on, there will be 1 less tune per month.
The Longer Version:
Well, not much to say. Minus one musical object per month really summarizes the whole message here.
The answer to the question “why?” is just as obvious. I am in dire need of the most valuable currency there is, time. By giving myself every now and then a few days off of producing music for kongano, I gain the equal amount of time to do something else. Like music!
The “no-update-week” will be the last of the month.
And hey, some music for ye: RYOKALE.
