A Preview of Sorts

leave a comment »

Determined a few days ago that I ought to be spending a bit more time on solo efforts, songs that don’t make the cut with The Meltdowns. I also determined that I should take the electro-maximalist bent as far as I can go. I made this a few days ago, it’s part of a bigger piece. I’d work on it more, but I have the Raging Headache of Doom.

If you listen closely to the guitar track you can hear me hitting the desk accidentally. I plan on keeping that there.

So Long

Let’s Do It Forever

BTW, Ryan Armand also illustrated the delightfully weird RIBALD YOUTH, which concerns a chain-smoking elementary school girl named Mayo and her older male friends who are in a violent gang.

VIOLENCE SALARYMAN TEPPEI!

leave a comment »

Ryan Armand, he who made the fabulous comic minus, made this ridiculous thing a few years go, VIOLENCE SALARYMAN TEPPEI. Quite the fun send-up of silly testosterone-pumped Yakuza manga, TEPPEI is a brief tale that follows the misadventures of a tempermental Salaryman and his Office Lady cohorts. It has the breezy feel of something made on a whim or a bet. Lots of punching and yelling follow.

Advice for my Past Self

leave a comment »

Dear Past Self,

It would do you well to not read Cormac McCarthy’s THE ROAD over one week when you are going through a particularly rough and confusing period in your life. You would certainly do well to read things that might cheer you up, instead. Maybe some Philip K. Dick or R.A. Heinlein. Even Kafka or Murakami would be better. At least Kafka had a black sense of humor. However, if you insist on reading about charred babies on spits, decapitated heads, harvesting people for cannibalism, infinite winter, and desperate starvation, by all means go right ahead you masochist you.

Sincerely,
Adam

Who Watches The Watchmen?

leave a comment »

Watchmen – one of my favorite graphic novels, nay, one of my favorite pieces of literature – is finally seeing a movie adaptation. Zack Synder, he of 300 fame is at the helm, and if this trailer (that is playing in front of The Dark Knight) is any indication it is going to be fucking incredible. I kid you not, I got goosebumps:

“Palisades Wolves”

leave a comment »

This thing started off as a slow ballad, believe it or not. The lyrics definitely fall into my “abstract” column.

I just got pretty freaking inspired tonight with a new rhythm and a few weird variations on a couple of the rather standard chord forms I was using. This is finally something I might be ready to take to the band in a week or two.

The vocal take here was just done at 12:20am, is thus very quiet as to not wake up the dogs, and is really meant for me to map out where certain words will go.
