Want To Write A Song? Here's How!
Musicians are strange creatures, cursed with melodies spinning around in their heads constantly. It's hard to recognize what words are brilliant lyrics, or just fleeting thoughts. The mind of a musician is a jumbled mess, with little bits and pieces of melodies and broken love songs constantly dragging behind them. My newest effort premieres at the end of this post! So stay tuned if you want to learn how to write music, and where these tips can get you. This card was inspired by @buddyesd and our conversations about music and songwriting over the past few days. 1. The first step is to know your music! Videos: Some of my favorites. I've been a musician my whole life. I started singing in my terrible two's and ended up getting a guitar at age 11 and starting my first rock band at 12. My life has always centered on what band I was obsessed with at the time. It all started with Green Day... Then the Ramones... Then My Chemical Romance... Thirty Seconds To Mars... The Sex Pistols... The Libertines... Neil Young, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Pete Doherty and on and on. And so on and so fourth. The point I'm trying to make here, is that you have to go through a lot of music to gain the inspiration and the fortitude to start making your own. Influences are a huge part of songwriting. They help you form what kind of identity you want as an artist. 2. Know that the perfect song won't come overnight. Your development takes time! (Video 1: One of the first songs I ever wrote (2009) "The Way You Talk" / tried and true pop-punk) (Video 2: A later rock song, 2014 "Tourist" a little more sophisticated, deeper lyrics, more passion, messy garage-rock feel) I didn't wake up and just know how to play the guitar and write songs, it took time. I sat in my room for hours on end, plucking away, humming, writing down and recording things and ultimately a lot of the stuff I wrote early on was complete shit. It just now, feels like I'm writing really meaningful stuff. So, just give yourself some time, and know that every musician goes through an evolution at every level. I started out writing simple, three chord punk songs in the vein of Green Day, my favorite band. That slowly evolved into more anthemic and stadium-like tunes when I started getting into bands like The Rolling Stones, U2 and so fourth... Now I've evolved into this heart-wrenching raw, indie influenced folk-y sound that is directly linked to my love for Pete Doherty's solo album Grace / Wastelands, a collection of melancholy tracks dedicated to love and confusion. My new song, Counselor (heard here), is a haunting acoustic ballad influenced by more singer / songwriter acts since I'm solo right now. So things have to evolve with the times. 3. Do some research. You have to know where you came from in order to know where you can go. This being said, every musician's routine is different. I just like to pick up my guitar, start strumming a few chords and a melody or lyric will come, and I'll go from there. Some people sit at a keyboard and bang out a melody, Others just jam and find a chord progression they like, to start with and build a melody on top of it. If you're not that experienced, you have to do some research. Look up the greats: Lennon and McCartney, Richards and Jagger. The classics are a great way to look at song structure. Then, look up your favorite artist's songwriting routines and experiment with them, mix and match styles until you feel like you can get somewhere. Like the lead singer of Green Day, Billie Joe Armstrong writes his melodies first, lyrics later. Both come at once for me, melody and lyric, almost always. So it just depends on how your brain works, and you won't know until you try. 4. JUST GO FOR IT!!! Music isn't perfect and most of the time it isn't beautiful or polished. So if you want to start creating your own, just start doing it. Hum melodies, listen to your favorite artists, pick up an instrument and do it! If you have the passion and you want to learn, anything is possible. I'm here to help too, if you have any questions or thoughts. Do not be afraid, because you could write the next number one single in your bedroom...you never know ;)! My newest song, written and recorded on August 12th, 2015 is up on Sound Cloud now, here's the link if you're interested. See! Songwriting isn't hard! ;) "Lying To The Wind" By: Tess Stevens
The Notorious B.I.G.
2pac과 더불어 힙합계의 양대산맥. 동부 힙합의 제왕. 본명은 크리스토퍼 조지 러토어 월리스이고 예명은 비기 스몰즈 1972년 3월 21일 뉴욕 브루클린의 베드스타이 출생입니다. 이스트 코스트를 대표하는 MC, 뉴욕의 황제, 서부의 2pac과 함께 90년대 미국 힙합을 양분했던 래퍼였습니다. 이를 두고 동부와 서부간의 전쟁이라고 언론에서는 부풀렸지만, 사실상 데스로 레코드와 배드보이 레코드간의 싸움이었습니다. 음악적인 면에서는 따로 설명이 필요없을 정도이고요. 랩을 하는 기술과 가사를 풀어가는 실력 모두 최정상급이며, 가사를 쓰지않고 따로 외워둔 뒤 랩을 하는 것으로 유명합니다. 미국 힙합사에서 빼놓을 수 없는 인물이지요. 2pac이 총에 맞아 사망한 뒤 약 6개월 후, 노토리어스도 똑같이 총격으로 사망하였습니다. 2집 앨범 프로모션을 위해 LA에 왔을때 LA에서 차량 이동중 기관단총을 수발에서 수십발 맞아 사망했습니다. 친구인 션 콤즈의 명곡으로 꼽히는 I'll Be Missing You는 바로 이 노토리어스의 죽음을 추모하며 만들어진 곡입니다. 1집 Ready to Die (1994) Notorious B.I.G.의 데뷔 앨범 입니다. 1994년 9월 13일 발매되었구요. 400만 장이 넘는 판매고를 올렸습니다. 그 해 발매된 Nas의 Illmatic과 함께 서부에 기울어져 있던 힙합 시장을 동부로 되돌려 놓다고 할 수 있습니다. 이 앨범을 위해 이지 모 비, 처키 톰프슨, 피트 록, DJ Premier 등 유수의 프로듀서들이 참가했고 미국 힙합 사상 최고의 명반 중의 하나입니다. 2집 Life After Death (1997) Notorious B.I.G. 의 2집 앨범입니다. 1997년 3월 25일 더블앨범으로 발매했습니다. 발매를 2주 앞두고 노토리어스가 사망하여 사후앨범이 되고 말았습니다. 앨범이름이랑 매치가 됩니다. 모든 레코딩 작업이 완료된 상태에서 앨범 프로모션 중 사망했기 때문에 정규앨범으로 봐야한다는 의견이 지배적이라고 할 수 있구요. Billboard 200 차트에서 발매 첫 주 1위를 차지 했으며 이 앨범으로 1998년 그래미상 시상식에서 3관왕을 달성했습니다. 1000만 장이 넘는 판매고를 기록 Diamond 앨범 인증을 받았구요 피처링진으로 R. Kelly, Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, Jay-Z, 메이즈 등 유명 뮤지션이 참가했습니다. 1집을 이은 노토리어스의 명반. Born Again (1999) 첫 사후앨범 입니다. 1993년~1994년에 녹음되었던 곡을 가지고 새롭게 프로듀싱해서 만들었습니다. 피처링진이 화려합니다. Nas, Ice Cube, Eminem, Busta Rhymes, Mop Deep, Method Man & Redman, Snoop Dogg이 참가했습니다. 2pac과의 사이에서 문제가 되었던 곡 'Who shot ya'가 실려있습니다. 후덜덜한 피쳐링진에도 불구하고 1집, 2집에 비해서는 평이 좋지 않습니다. 비기를 상업적으로 이용한 거 아니냐는 평이 엄청납니다. Duets: The Final Chapter (2005) 두 번째 사후앨범 입니다. 그가 죽기 전에 녹음했던 곡들을 리믹스해서 만든 컴필레이션 성격의 앨범이구요. 평가는 그닥 좋지 않습니다. 아니 매우매우 안좋습니다. 롤링스톤지에서 별 2개를 받았을 정도이니....중간도 못갔다고 할수 있겠지요....;; Greatest Hits (2007) 그리고 그가 세상을 떠난 지 10주년이 되는 해에 나온 베스트 앨범이 나옵니다.... 2009년 그의 일대기를 다룬 <노토리어스>(Notorious) 라는 영화가 개봉되었습니다. 조지 틸먼 주니어가 감독을 맡았으며 자말 울러드라는 래퍼가 노토리어스를 맡았습니다. 특이하게 그의 아들 크리스토퍼 월리스 주니어가 그의 어린 시절을 연기 했습니다. 저는 정말 재미있게 봤습니다.
Are Leghorn chickens friendly?
Are Leghorn chickens friendly? Leghorn chickens are probably the most famous chickens in the world! Their original name was Italians, but over time Leghorns evolved out of it. Before discussing Leghorn’s egg-laying capabilities, you should know its history, temperament, and disposition. Generally friendly, Leghorn chickens can sometimes be noisy and aggressive, but they make great egg-layers Cold hardy, they do well in cold climates. People and other animals, including pets, will get along well with roosters and hens. Due to their dual purpose of laying eggs and producing meat, these species are at a disadvantage when it comes to laying eggs and using the feed. Laying time for white Leghorn chickens Typically, chickens lay their eggs between two and six hours after sunrise, or when the sun has just risen. Unless it is mid-summer and has been light a few hours, there are never any eggs in the nest when I let mine out at around 7 in the morning. They lay in the range of 280–320 eggs per year, depending on the breed, and they are good layers. Each egg weighs at least 55 grams and is white. In the first eighteen weeks of a hen’s life, the hen starts laying eggs. She can continue to lay eggs for many years. A chicken allowed to roam will find much of its food on its own since it is a smart and resourceful bird. Among the 12 varieties, the single-comb White Leghorn is the most popular; it’s the world’s leading egg producer; it contains white eggs and is bred. Brown Leghorn Chicken The Leghorn breed of chicken lays around 220 to 300 white eggs in one season. Three to four eggs would be needed each week. There is evidence that their strain affects how many eggs they lay. Brooding hens are rare in the henhouse. It is not common to consume Light Brown Leghorns as meat. This breed of chicken is hardy and adaptable to almost any climate conditions. For the hobbyist who wishes to raise a lot of eggs, they are ideal. Leghorn is of Italian origin. Their name was first changed to Italians, and then they were sent back to England for more efficient egg production. Standard of Perfection, an American organization, accepted this variety in 1874. The comb, wattles, and face of brown leghorn chickens are bright red. The color of their eyes is a deep reddish bay. Orange is the color of their plumage. This male’s hackles and saddle are deep oranges, and his sickles are black. His tail is black. How did Foghorn Leghorn get its name? Despite its unrefined personality and a desire for mischief, Foghorn leghorn chickens are bombastic and yet somewhat unrefined. Apart from the reference to Senator Leghorn, Foghorn’s first name reflects his loudmouthed character. Warner Bros. produces cartoon and film films featuring Foghorn Leghorn, a cartoon rooster. Foghorn is located just steps away from its sibling restaurant, In Riva, in the heart of East Falls. I must be missing something about this. My favorite way to eat chicken is fried, grilled, roasted, or BBQ’d – in other words, any way you can do it. Having seen them in a different context for a while (i.e. meat case at the local Piggly Wiggly) was kinda cool. However, a fryer chicken costs about $1.99/lb; what is the price of a live chicken? Wouldn’t that be a lot? For instance, I get the hormone-free, free-range chickens at Whole Foods and their handling and packaging must be more costly. Crevecoeur Chickens About Crevecoeur Foghorn Leghorn Chicken Hawk– This is a French breed from the 19th century. Originating as table birds, they are now popular pets. It is surprising to see how large today’s birds are in comparison with those of centuries ago. The Dorking blood market was introduced in the late 1800s. The price of these appears to be higher than what I have been paying. Other benefits must also be available. The site I found provides convenient benefits, but I will summarize them here; they include: · Protein Sources Local · Improved Quality · A fertilizer’s source · The natural control of pests · Local food movement you can be a part of · Fun is had by all! Even though I understand all of them, only better quality is truly motivating to me to bring chickens to my urban backyard. Six reasons were asked, but they only had two Is it becoming more elitist to keep chickens in a city? It does not make you an elitist if your lawn crew collects chicken poop from your yard (for you urbanites, fertilizer also means poop). My comments on why it is unusual for urban chickens to produce eggs (or food) later will deal with a different by-product of having hens in the city: eggs.

날 미치게 했던 X-Japan
☆ Weekend ☆ 초등학교 동창이었던 여자아이가 알려줘서 고등학교때 듣게 되었던 X-JAPAN입니다. 이 음악을 계기로 일본 음악에 눈을 뜨기 시작했더랬죠... 1982년에 결성된 일본의 비주얼계 록밴드로서 일본의 록, 메탈계를 대표하는 밴드들 중 하나로 1997년 해체 이후, 2007년 영화 쏘우 4의 OST인 I.V 를 발표하면서 재결성하였습니다. ☆ 紅 (Kurenai) ☆ 이들에 대한 대중의 평은 실제 이상의 과대평가와 그로 인한 반동에서 비롯한 과소평가의 양극단을 오가지만 LUNA SEA, GLAY, Dir en grey부터 나이트메어 등 수많은 후배 밴드들에게 적잖은 영향을 미친 점이나 1992년 일본인 아티스트 최초로 3일 연속 도쿄 돔 콘서트를 성사시킨 일화 등을 감안한다면 확실히 일본 음악사에 한 획을 그은 밴드 중 하나라는 점에 대해서는 부인할 수 없죠. ☆ Endless Rain (The Last Live) ☆ 기본적인 구성은 트윈 기타로 기타 솔로부분을 두 기타가 나누어서 연주하며, 보통 파타가 백킹 부분을 히데가 리딩 부분을 연주하였습니다. 근데 배킹과 리딩이 분명 따로이긴 한데, 딱히 내용상 큰 차이를 가지지는 않는다고하네요. 단, 곡에 따라 차이는 존재한다고 합니다. ☆ SILENT JEALOUSY ☆ 멤버들 간의 사이가 상당히 나쁜 편으로 그의 한 예로서 HIDE의 사망 1주기 트리뷰트 앨범 나올 때도 Yoshiki와 PATA, HEATH가 각자 곡을 따로 하나씩 넣었고 TOSHI는 불참했습니다. ☆ Tears ☆ 아이러니하게도 한국 음악계에 가장 많은 영향을 끼친, 그리고 표절을 당한 밴드 중 하나일 거라고 생각합니다. X의 최고 명곡 중 하나인 ENDLESS RAIN은 녹색지대의 '준비없는 이별'과 똑같습니다. 코드 진행은 물론 중간의 나레이션이 나오는 부분까지도 똑같기 때문에 일본노래가 노래방에 들어오기 전에는 X의 팬들이 이 노래를 틀어놓고 ENDLESS RAIN을 부르기도 했다고 합니다. ☆ Say Anything ☆ 국내에서는 X JAPAN의 활동 당시만 하더라도 일본 문화 수입을 금하고 있었던 사정도 있고 해서 소수의 팬들에 의해 불법 수입되었습니다. (저도 복사판 CD로 콘서트를 봤으니깐요) 이 때문에 X의 노래를 듣는 것에서 우월감을 느끼곤 했던 사람들이 있었습니다. 지금에야 일본 문화 개방이 이루어져서 X JAPAN의 음악을 듣는 것이 그리 어렵지 않은 일이 되었고 X JAPAN의 인기 자체도 식은 감이 있어서 그런 사람은 거의 없는 듯 하지만 한국 X JAPAN 팬덤의 흑역사인것은 분명한듯 하네요.
How To Use Writing As Therapy
I woke up this morning with every intention of crawling back into bed and forgetting what consciousness ever felt like. Car lights from outside crawled across my frosted glass window and I thought, how can it still be so dark outside? It was 5:30 A.M. and I didn't have to be up until 7. I cursed my mind for causing the stir, and couldn't fathom going back to sleep, so I sat up in bed, feeling the weight of every obligation that has fallen on my shoulders in the past few months. These days, the words aren't coming as easily, and each thought, every burst of energy is going toward auxiliary functions, like breathing and walking. This is what the first humans must have felt like when they first hit earth: firing on all cylinders in order to do such simple things. Exhaustion is the number one enemy of productivity, and still I press forward, feeling as if nothing I do is ever enough. I can't seem to figure out if I'm in the right place at the right time or not. Some days I feel stellar, and others I feel like I'm being stepped on by God's mighty boot, being jettisoned deeper and deeper into the ground by my own mused melancholy. I guess, being an artist, you can't help but be tortured right? It's been studied, people who "think too much" end up being the most depressed, because their thoughts encompass almost everything. It's hard to move and live day to day when your head is so far in the future that your body has already given out, and you're on your death bed. I feel like I've been living 20 years ahead of myself. I am never able to enjoy the moment. I am never able to give myself any credit. I am already in the ground as far as my brain is concerned. These thoughts, this person I have become is racing against time each moment they are conscious. This is why I love sleep, because the lights turn off and the party is over. I can rest. Getting there, is another story. I tried to sit down and write a song last night, but just the thought of that entire process made me so anxious that I had to walk away from it. That has never happened before. It scared me a bit. Like something was holding me back. I have to figure this out. I used to think writing a song, or writing things down could solve all of my problems, like magically once the words hit the page, I would be a new person. Sometimes it works, sometimes it makes me feel worse, but I guess it's all a form of therapy. I'm not sure what the point of this rabble is, or if it will be productive to likes, views or whatever, but for some reason I feel a bit better. Owning up to this emptiness will enable me to move forward right? This is what we have to believe in order to move on. In order to self-improve. It's like a cleansing of the thoughts. Now that they are on the page, they don't have to own my consciousness. Using writing as a means of personal excavation can be exhausting, dangerous and completely insane, but I swear by it. There is some truth to creating a reality in your head that doesn't necessarily match up with what's really going on. I have to admit there is something fearless about all of this. All the eyes and what not. There is a freak show element, though, and where the eyes and people gawk and stare, there can be real truth. I guess it's not self improvement, it's self defense.
