Quit Texting

Quit Texting me!

I can’t stand it – if you know me you know where I am – and you know what I’m doing – and YOU KNOW I hate them!

Pick up the phone or just e-mail me – but anything but a phone call will more than likely be misinterpreted.

How hard is it to just CALL?

Haiku’s and other writings…

The ART and SCIENCE of Writing

So much is always “lost in translation” from language to language…

And it’s really funny when somebody has NOT EVEN studied “Greek or Latin” which I did both – try to use a “software translator” as all you get it “gibberish”.

And even still funnier when someone will take the HIGH ART of the HAIKU and “butcher it” – so in my next post – I may just do that – just for fun!

The Japanese haiku and the English language haiku have several critical differences. In Japanese the haiku is composed of 17 sound units divided into three parts – one with 5 units, one with 7 units and another with 5 units. Since sound units are much shorter than English syllables, it has been found that following the Japanese example results in a much longer poem often filled up to make the count with unnecessary words.

The Japanese write their haiku in one line, in order to see clearly the parts of the haiku. In English each part is given a line. This allows the reader time to form an image in the mind before the eyes go back to the left margin for more words. The line breaks also act as a type of punctuation. The kigo, or season word, is a vital part of the Japanese haiku, but in English it is often ignored and not well understood. Therefore, a great number of English haiku do not have a season word and yet are considered to be haiku. The Japanese, because of their longer history of reading haiku, understand that there are two parts to the poem. In English these are called the phrase and fragment. One line is the fragment and the other two lines combine grammatically to become the phrase. Without this combining the two lines together the haiku will sound ‘choppy’ as the voice drops at the end of each line.

A Sonnet

I doubt many people even READ “Sonnets” any more – much less even TRY to attempt to write one –  I can’t take much credit on this one – but I can say I helped – FINISH IT!  Which is funny – people could be a novelist or published author, etc – but you HAVE TO FINISH!  Which is NOT as easy as it sounds…

Trust me – it’s hard – but “I FINISHED” a 650 some odd page REFERENCE MANUAL – and A LOT of other works – and they are PUBLISHED.

Be that as it may – here’s “A SONNET” – I helped FINISH:

 


To want to rid the world of all that is unknown

Love, Live with worth and pride and belief of the life

Hold on to knowledge that will always make it right

Faults are present even from this queen on her throne

 

Consequences of life subside when left alone

Let the heart of the world decide what should be

Thoughts, feelings, intuition make it clear to see

Expectations make a life last, last so long

 

Just find a way to live a life and never grieve

The thoughts that bleed into the soul of a life in time

Made they were to be the faults to never last or leave

Intention unspoken yet never meant to rhyme

 

It is when they speak to make all the world listen

Falter, stumble, cry or accept what is given…

(By Stacy and Steve)

Think it’s easy? YOU try it!

Actually Got some Music In!

Despite the massive move in the studio and all of the other things I had to get done in regards to my Studio and Outer Offices – I actually managed to get some playing in!

It’s always great to pick up a guitar (that’s got NEW STRINGS and is IN TUNE) and just plug-in to Pro Tools and lay down some tracks – not going to say I got much songwriting done – but I did get to the point that I could at least just plug-n-play!

Looking forward just two more solid weekends – of just working on the studio and Pro Tools Templates – especially for my BFD – and I do need to update my FX-Pansion amps – see what they can do – as it’s time to do a FULL on Virtual Drum, with real guitars and bass – and then break out the Sample Tank, Moog(s), and Melotrons and add some keyboard, string parts, etc….wish I had gotten the kit with the Wurlitzer’s and multiple Rhodes, as I really need to get RID of some of these “full on keyboards” that are just taking up SPACE!

OK – I’ll admit that a Virtual Synth or any Virtual instrument will ever touch a REAL ONE – but they surely are convenient!

Sleep that elusive thing…
Woke up dreaming of a LIVE GIG – needless to say – can’t go back to sleep now…

Coffee and MUSIC

Just wish my right hand wasn’t sill asleep- but all it needs is a PICK – my left hand does all the work…at least with stringed  instruments – that is…

Y’all have a good day…or sleep well – as I’m off to work…time to set up the studio
