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)

- orion in december (mid version)

- orion in december (final-ish version)

 

thank you for being here.

 

i hope you'll listen.

 

love,

russell

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

the other ghost


friends,

 

episode 571 is inspired by director david lowery's 2017 film, a ghost story.

 

this movie is simply astounding. impossibly sad. thought-inspiring. + true.

 

i can't recommend it more highly.

 

see - the trailer

 

the other movies i mentioned are:

- kumiko: the treasure hunter (2015)

- melancholia (2011)

- magnolia (1999)

- crimes and misdemeanors (1989)

- paris, texas (1984)

 

others i should've mentioned are:

- i wish (2012)

- the lives of others (2006)

- brokeback mountain (2005)

 

these movies are perfect to me, each in their own way.

 

tonight's songs:

- unlikely to change (splitting, 2015)

- density (new song, light version)

- density (new song, heavy version)

- up to here (lip service, 2013)

 

thank you for being here.

 

i hope you'll listen.

 

love,

russell
