Nice one, Susan. I like the structure in four acts and those little snippets of Deb’s pella in-between. Also a great backing track and guitar playing.

Thanks Sub! Haskel is really quite a fine guitar player — and he makes me laugh too!

This is awesome!!!! Zappa meets Woody Allen meets Kerouac…not really sure where they intersect, but you get the point.

Nice mix Sackjo22!

The samples are terrfic and so the mix, created with your own unique skill and imagination, is fabulous. The four parts of Haskel’s quartet are hilarious in content and performance. The is an exceptional piece, Sack! xxxx

Thanks Ciggi! Somehow, I kept laughing too, even after I heard the rant 100,000 times while recording/mixing.

Brilliant! I love the mellow acid jazz tripping along in behind.

This song is the epitome of “show don’t tell” in how hard life as a musician really is: nobody supports you, and the life can go south a lot. And ultimately, it is NOT money, and never money, that drives you to do it. Because simultaneous with that, are all the chaotic rewards that go with it.

You just do it because you have to. Perhaps Mr. Williams can relate to Haskel’s stories, and finally understand the impulse so many of us have to, well, not sue Youtubers who put our songs into videos!!!

Thanks Admiral! We don’t want to imply that money is bad… wouldn’t it be great to make money doing music? But you’re right, we do it because we’re compelled to for some inexplicable reason. And that’s not bad. This music thing, while being challenging at times, is also incredibly comforting and rewarding! Thanks for the thoughtful words.

Wow. What a great piece. I came here tired and now feel revived. Once again your mixing of the music with the words is ideal. The music is full of life with it’s twists and turns alongside steady beats and the reading style is so naturalistic, kind of reminds me of Woody Allen without the punch lines. A fantastic mix.

Thanks Denny — it sure is nice to know we had a reviving effect on you! Haskel’s recitation was actually extemporaneous, no reading, no script… just some story telling…

Very cool mix and idea. Excellent choice of musical source. It’s twisting and turning, like Haskel’s story. Haven’t listened so concentrated to a lyric/reading for a while. It’s personal, unpretentious, honest and warm. Congrats to all to all involved!

Good job S. Your mixing skills are impressive. Thank you for encouraging me to complete this idea. Who ever thought that struggling years for little to no acclaim or financial gain could be such fun? The answer: most everyone that ever “wrote a poem” - or anything - and “thought it was pretty good”. Freedom to share, indeed. Now, to write that ever evasive hit song and just watch those royalty checks come in.
