discontentment and spellchecking

Having considered seeking psychotheraputical help, and even having explored a few options, i think im going to have ago at being my own psychotherapist. Why not? I think im qualified... im certainly opinionated enough to be anyway... and thats good enough for me.

I've also been considering writting a book. Of course, nothing along the lines of some amazingly well-versed, spellchecked fluid publication that's going to be some NY Times bestseller.... but at least some kind of literal manisfestation of sorts. But then i thought, maybe ill just start some kind of "fuckit, ill just say it how it is" blog. Maybe keep it away from the facebook and the twatter, just to avoid any confusion or illusion of control from "the powers that be" ...  plus theres something to be said about writting a few paragraphs rather than keeping a whole day of bullshit wrapped up in a neat little package no more than 140 characters.

If anything, im hoping this will serve as a decent spot to post my thoughts and opinions on whatever for now, and hopefully let it culminate into something worthy of reflection and research later so i can hopefully compile this into some kind of book.

If you've been following me for the past 5 years, im sure we'll all get a huge fucking kick out of this... myself included.... god knows i get enough weirdos running into my anecdotes or statements and reposting them on their cool little message boards... and i certainly cant be fucked to jump in over there to defend any given idiots claim or rant... so... this is going to work pretty good for me.

i can't exactly tell you what to expect here... but im definatley going to keep it as "matter of fact" as i can... i've locked this space of the internet down from management, my label, and my cat... so it's highly unlikely anything on here is going to come from "The powers that be" (who will likely be making numerous appearances on this blog)

So, enjoy... or don't enjoy. I'm doing this for my own sanity.

  6. Blogging is much better than Therapy.. I swear I get more out of writing & music than talking to my shrink once a week. It's a dumpster haven of Crap that leaves once you type it. Best wishes.

  19. It's funny, one guy says you inspired him to make music. I feel like you are so good, I should just quit.

    The only thing I'm sure of is, I can't relate to you on any meaningful level. But I do enjoy watching your brilliance from the sidelines.

    You are a fucking champion, sir. Well done.
