Motivated but not inspired

I work in the basement (I call it my office) Monday through Friday. I keep my guitars nearby in case I want to grab one after quitting time and write some songs. I don't really have any inexpensive projects to do around the house that don't involve being outside during my least favorite season. I can't for the life of me figure out why people enjoy sweating their asses off. I don't have a body to show off. In fact I really only get wardrobe compliments when I'm almost completely covered up. Thanks everybody.

At the end of the day I really want to write some music. I'm very motivated to to an LP since I have yet to do one even though I've written enough songs for several. I lack the inspiration to put together something. The most obnoxious part is that I can build crap out of wood like I'm putting together something out of Legos. I just start cutting and eventually I have a bird feeder or a work bench yet I can't write a damn song. I can do everything but the hook.

For those of you that don't know (the four people that read this do) the hook the part of the song that makes you want to listen to it. The singer in my last band could come up with a hook like my dog farts. I'm like a typical bachelor's refrigerator. All condiments. I can finish your song if you don't know what to do with it using my side dishes.

I swear I'm just going to start working on it. I know how to do it so I just need to do it. I've decided to start with an album cover.


  1. You don't have to complete a whole album... just one simple cover song. (I do, however, LOVE that picture. It scares me like the picture of the two guys working on the empire state building's antenna.

    Side note:
    "...could come up with a hook like my dog farts." I farted when I read the word "farts"... like, at the same time!


  2. I can't do covers. I don't know why I just can't do it.
