moostery!!!

…Once upon a time the boys at moos manors got tired of posting their cds out to would be publishers and thought ‘who else would we like feedback from?’ Although sending a batch out to friends and family seemed like the best chance of getting a warm response, the boys decided not to be cowardly custards and that if they wanted the best honest feedback they should ask the harshest critics. But who is a song’s harshest critic? The boys pondered this for a few hours. And then it hit them. Who better than another songwriter? (Especially if they’ve written a good tune or two.)

If you’re reading this story you’re probably a songwriter. You’re also a good one, in moos’ opinion so well done! If you we’re intrigued enough to read this, go a step further and unravel the whole moostery by popping the cd in and pressing play. That way you’ll be rewarded by Santa at Christmas and you may well win on the horses if you have a flutter, as karma works in strange ways. The next moostery layer to unravel is up to you, as the boys at moos are waiting to hear your thoughts. Leave a comment or drop them a line, and complete the moostery tale.

Turn of phrase…

…leads to praise.

I’m trying to think of quirky bits of the English language that crop up in my life and jot them down for a reference point when it comes to lyric writing. Pop writing is a real ball-buster so I need to give myself some tools to help. Back in my emcee-ing days I could write a few verses a day without breaking in to a sweat. I didn’t write just your average ‘I’m the best rapper in the world’ guf either. Proper stories about luminous midget aliens and stuff. Writing relevant pop is much, much harder I assure you. Those that sit on the outside and judge – stop it; it’s a real art-form.

Pop isn’t inspiring me at the moment though so I’m reading loads to try and soak up a few language ideas – I’ll have to borrow the K-Bombs library card. Geek.

England won 6-0. I’ll update on Tomlinson later.

Things crash for a reason…

…so don’t SAVE and don’t BACK UP.

I’m a walking contradiction in terms, you’d think that by now Baby you’d have learned. The tune we made after lunch on Sunday – i.e. the replacement tune – got revisited for the first time last night. On Sunday I didn’t like it too much as we we’re making it; hindsight tells me that my negetivity was probably due to my sulking at the loss of our earlier creation. It’s actually pretty stonking, needs a lot of work done to make the beats hit hard as it’s quite a dancy number, other than that I think it’s better than the one that went bang – and I don’t mean like Sonny and Cher.

There we have it then – don’t SAVE or BACK UP.

Watching the footie with Davey P and the boys tonight. Watching Jim Royle in stand-up Thursday (get in). Writing new lyrics to Song 8 with the K-Bomb on Friday night. Sorry, for song 8 read New Riffy, which is obviously a working title. Or is it?

Mystery coming soon, I promise.

Save our soul…

… or pop song.

Kris and I learnt a school boy lesson on Sunday that I for one have learnt on many occasions in the past. If I heard somebody moan about losing some work or a song because they hadn’t saved or back-up properly I’d think ‘what an idiot, you deserve all the bad luck you get’. So why oh why didn’t I hit save at at least one point during our morning of creating?

Basically we we’re working really quickly and knocked out a verse, chorus, bridge etc with out much effort; it was one of those sessions where everything just clicks and you work so quickly. So quickly that you get impatient with a soft-synth taking too long to open, make a few too many mouse clicks, watch the synth crash, then watch Logic crash, then joke about loosing the whole song, then re-open Logic and look at a blank song, then scratch your head, then cry like Baby Buntins.

BACK UP and SAVE you idiots.

When’s Harry Hill’s TV Burp back? Oh I miss the good things in life.

The exciting thing is yet to be hatched – other things have gotten in the way. Personal things which should make my life go zing. The exciting thing should happen next week now.

Loving the sunshine.

Loving Jay & Leanne’s wedding.
