  1. I've seen about 15-20 psychiatrists, and I've only met one who encouraged me to actively participate in my health. in my experience, the profession is run like a factory line. you fill out a questionnaire. they ask you a few yes or no questions. then they announce what you're getting and at that point you're expected to say thank you and come back and do it again in 3 months. if you bother to explore with them why you're getting what you're getting, they get annoyed. I've had one psychiatrist who said ok, seroquel within about 5 minutes. I told him seroquel is too strong for me. he then let his clipboard slide down his lap and say, "What do you want from me?" the following silence was deafening. beyond that, the side effects are severe and I've finally admitted to myself that maybe they all do more damage than good and maybe I don't need to be drugged constantly all my life. I'm looking forward to getting into talk therapy tho. there's a wide range of therapies I haven't tried first hand and it's like, man, why haven't I done that in all this time. is that a tambourine on your wall? also, I dig your record shelf.
  2. I only party sad. and I only dance weird. I'll take 50 copies.
  3. To My Friends Downtown We live in a desert called Los Angeles and we're all just looking for water. Some throats are so parched only the words, "L" and "A" escape. We live in a desert L.A. and we're all just looking for water. They paved over all the sand decades ago. somehow we still taste it in the back of our throats. We live in a desert called L.A. and stand on street corners shouting "Hey Buddy!" but they pass by with sealed steel bottles. we only ask for a small pour if they're ever dehydrated enough to stop. a long time ago someone said that if we'd let him run the asylums along with everything else he'd overflow the fountains on every penthouse and we'd be whetted so well we'd forget as it all trickled down. me, I've been holding a cup out of a middle class window for a decade. I moved down a few floors, and I've caught a couple drops. sometimes I stare at clouds. water in the sky. mostly, the clouds pass. sometimes they rain, and a third of this town doesn't know what to do. on those days, my friends and I don't stop anyone. the rain's not the same as the water they sell. but maybe. one day. you and I. we'll get that drink. I know a place. It's in this desert. Called Los Angeles.
  4. can't sleep. can't get satisfying conversation. my prescriptions are causing me pain and I resent all the psychiatrists I've seen. job interview tomorrow. I'm too confident right now and mostly worried about what salary they'll offer. can't sleep. can't stop itching and spasming. so fatigued. but can't sleep.
  5. Nightshift is my favorite song at the moment.
  6. I prefer shooting the breeze to the shit. I hope that isn't a shithead thing to say. also, no parle vou france so I cannot be of any help. I can't even say I'm sorry. but I can say merci.
  7. maybe gloomy in a Slowdive sort of way, but it's that kind of gloominess that cheers me up. as for that ending, it's a little difficult to put my finger on, but I was imagining an ending that sounded like a crashing wave that gets all louder and abruptly ends. the ending as is just feels like that keyboard is doing a little noodling on its own and then ends by itself when the whole track should've come together to end. if that makes sense? I hate focusing on this one aspect, but as you said you were working on it (not sure if it's finished now?) that would be my only note. my main take away is I love it. and yes, I do remember the older version. listened to it quite a lot.
  8. Howl's Moving Castle - 5/5 Bird - 3/5 (great movie, but awful editing/pacing) started Eddie Izzard's Dress to Kill tonight. Cindy wasn't laughing as much as I hoped, and the disc from the video rental store looks like its scratched :/
  9. sounds like an imposter?
  10. I dig it, man. the vocals are kind of hypnotic and inviting. and from what I can tell, I like the lyrics. the drumbeat sounds drunken, I like it quite a bit. strings fit in well here. well done! that lead on the end needs some better production in my opinion though. they're a little tinny. perhaps like, more reverb? maybe? I don't know.
  11. very nice, ms. gnogghi! I liked hearing this version of it being familiar with the older, shall we say, demo? the ending feels somewhat unfinished, to be honest. but I love what you've done with the track. from kind of a harsh strum on an acoustic to a warm hug around the ears with this take.
