disappointment


friends,

 

this week is episode 577. it's inspired a bit by disappointment, generally. but also (more importantly) inspiration, and work, time, and growth.

 

the music is from josh and sam armerding + a re-envisioned song from me.

 

many thanks to josh and sam for their music.

 

and to you for listening.

 

the songs:

- all i see (by josh armerding, 1995)

- the problem is i want it all (lip service, 2013, remastered!)

- cowboy star (by sam armerding, 1995)

pareidolia


friends,

 

this weekend arrives with episode 576. it's me + norway house + a new song + a few thoughts surrounding the ephemeral nature of our impressions, experiences, dreams, beliefs, etc. the feeling of seeing something beautiful - or, even more, of connecting dots that may well otherwise be completely unrelated - is bit a bit strange and sweet.

 

many repeated thanks go out to kris hauch and the band norway house for sharing their music with me. you can find more - at bandcamp.

 

more about - pareidolia

even more - at wiki

 

the songs:

- 746 (by norway hosue)

- jane (written/recorded today, by me)

- i wanna feel bad all the time (by norway house)

 

there'll be more next week.

 

i hope you'll listen, enjoy, and stay tuned.

 

love,

russell

caught between


friends,

 

episode 574 brings me to the last (planned) recording for my 2017 homemade project. unfortunately, i'm rather disappointed with it's current state, but plan to keep tinkering, and hope to improve it through the final mix process. we'll see.

 

my routine disatisfactions aside, i remain inspired by the constellation orion.

 

you can see it - here

and find more - here

 

the song:

- orion in december (demo)

what does it mean


friends,

 

episode 573 is inspired by a song that's inspired by love and infatuation, lust, fantasy, devotion, rejection, jealousy, disappointment, and so on.

 

what happens if of our big dreams were nothing ever but?

 

i ask only because mine give me a sinking suspicion.

 

tonight's song:

- cold fusion (discarded demo)

- cold fusion (piano version)

- cold fusion (guitar version)

 

i'm thankful you're here.

 

i hope you'll listen.

 

love,

russell

and yet yr still asking


friends,

 

episode 572 finds me working with yet another new song, + the why's and how's of disappointment. i know there are likely no good answers, but part of me still longs to understand the past, myself, and to undo/re-do, things that can't be.

 

it's hard to face sometimes.

 

i hope it can be helpful to look directly at it.

 

to (try to) accept the truth, openly.

 

and do better.

 

i hope you agree.

 

tonight's songs:

- and yet yr still asking (demo version)

- and yet yr still asking (light version)

- and yet yr still asking (heavy version)

 

thank you for being here.

 

love,

russell
