rocket ships


friends,

 

episode 729 is here,

along with some thoughts

about lost dreams,

regret,

disappointment,

et. al., +

the (often, seemingly)

hidden beauty

that's on the other

side.

 

as mentioned,

this is - rick beato

and this is - what makes a song great

 

for the record

(to my ear),

this is probably - the best pop-rock song of all time,

mostly due

to the amazing - brad delp,

and the magic of - tom scholz.

 

thank you for being here.

 

i hope you'll - join me.

 

the songs:

- gold visor (demo/b-side, 2015)

- i wouldn't've learned a thing (demo3, 2020)

- i can't help but fail (live, 2015 version)

 

love,

russell

the whispers


friends,

 

episode 728 finds me here

with some old songs

i'm rather happy

to share.

 

seems to me

that run through us

from beginning

to end.

 

i wonder if you agree?

 

i'm thankful yr here,

+ hope you'll - join me.

 

the songs:

- in other words (b-side, 2012)

- i wouldn't've learned a thing (demo2, 2020)

- older than upon the rocks she sits (demo, 2008)

 

love,

russell
