  3. i write songs

    thanks a lot, both of you ... first off im 26.. yeah im pretty old... i quit music and writing altogether for about 2 years til last fall, and i started writing again. id say im happier with the quality of my writing as time goes on, not that i become more complacent, but looking back to when i started when i was 13 i like my writing more as time goes on... buut that doesnt mean i like everything i write... just overall it seems like im gradually getting closer to that place where i want to be as a lyricist on the flip side of that, as i get older its harder to get inspired, you know.. when youre a teenager theres so much going on inside you both emotionally and physically (i mean hormonally, ha) that there's just so much inspiration around you and inside you... i dunno im really rambling.. this is just my experience it could be totally different for someone else.. so i write less often now than i used to, i less frequently am motivated, inspired, and genuinely excited about the actual act of writing than when i was 16 or 17 if i were to give advice, not that im really in a position to do so, i would say i think the key is to just stay critical of your own work, to see where you can improve, but not to get down on yourself and be hopeless about it... and also at the same time to appreciate the positive in your work and also to occasionally reflect on the progress youve made no ive never been published ive just done recordings on my own, never had a record deal or had any lyrics or poems published... im working on some demos right now and theyre sort of starting to take shape as an album, im just trying to let it happen instead of do what i used to do which is have like a grand vision of what i wanted before i even finished writing all the songs... and it never worked out... but yeah, all the songs now are basically about relationships of one sort or another, so theres a common thread, and musically they sort of piece together though theres a lot of dynamic going on... sometimes i actually think of what regina said in that interview, something like "its boring to have all the songs on an album be about the same thing" or sound the same or something.. i think i might be guilty of that.. because all my songs seem to end up being about broken relationships... sorry reg seriously though, the link in my sig is to my new demos i was talking about, if anyone wants to check them out.... ok im definitely spent on this rambling post but i want to say this was not all a big scheme to plug my myspace page, ok thanks... haha

    i'd almost forgotten your name i went on a trip to see the old west i thought i'd forgotten your name horses and pistols like in olden times i thought i'd forgotten your name they led me away like a cowboy in shame but without you it just wasn't the same you still fuck with me light years of summers away and i'd almost forgotten your name i'd almost forgotten your name i'd almost forgotten your name i'd almost forgotten your name still you haunt my days like a cancer in my spine and i'd almost forgotten your name i've held vigils for you with empty bottles in empty rooms like i thought i'd forgotten your name i take imaginary photos for a fragmented picture book and in the shoebox where they are saved are all the wonderful things i'd do for myself when i'd finally forgotten your name i'd almost forgotten your name i'd almost forgotten your name i'd almost forgotten your name the hope of everyone pushed down and inside out carved into pretty shapes painted with fairy tales sprinkled with angel dust sent out in paper graves i'd almost forgotten your name i'd almost forgotten your name i'd almost forgotten your name

  9. Regina tells a fan to get the (ph)uck out

    quote: Originally posted by Sunshine Redneck: She's so sweet, but definitely carries a lot of hidden attitude. A girl in Savannah was doing the wandering, sit on the stage steps thing and got an evil stare from Regina and one could tell that Regina was going to verbally assault her if the security hadn't come to this girls' rescue. i dont get this.. unfamiliar with this "wandering, sit on the stage steps" move.. could you explain further plz thanks
