Never Say Never

Preface: my first choice of title was ‘We Never Know Anyone’ I thought Nicki Minaj as a hip-hop, free form, fast-paced rapper. I saw/see her as overly made-up to the point of clownish, being colorful enough to stand out against the extremely point-driven Lady Gaga; or maybe the black girl version of Katy Perry. The truth is, I don’t listen to the radio or watch pop-culture news, or read ANY magazine. I have no fucking clue! I have perception. I have personal taste that streamlines me into specific decisions on any given day. I most randomly came across a very piano-string focused ballad of a Nicki Minaj song recently, and frankly, it rocks my world. This one observation has me … Read More

My Status is Not Stasis

  This past Sunday my mother and I were driving to visit my grandmother and I got pulled over by a cop. Quite curious since I was obeying the law. It always makes you feel a little anxious regardless. Turns out my inspection sticker has been out for 6 months! Geez, why didn’t I notice? It is usually mailed to me automatically, yearly.

I can’t firmly say i hate it yet, but time is money. I will know definitively by Thursday. I hinted to the producer Monday about just shelving it, just starting another song i have ready. I was going very avant-garde. Fuck it, this is for me! He proposed structuring it commercially. Sure I … Read More

Time Is on Your Side

We made it. Passed the holidays, all our pieces are still in tact. The new year, the perception of a fresh start, as it actually just slides into another… Time is speeding up. Have you noticed? No, it really is. But here’s the best part, the time between what you want and when you will get it is also shorter now, so there’s that. You must act on it, no waiting around. And I have been spending time and waiting. Since Sunday, I believe my body has been physically glued to my bed with illness: no reading, no Netflix, no nothin! There have been moments of mental conception and new creation inside of this fatigue, and my own path has … Read More
