Entry #1

Man, I kinda suck.

My composing has been stuck in a jam for a while now. I can't seem to write anything, and anything I think of, I have trouble translating it to an actual, written piece of music. Anyone else have that problem (I know I'm not the only one here that does.) Any words of advice would be helpful. I would really like to get back into the game.

Do something drastic like cut your corotid artery or throw yourself face first off of your roof. After you get out of surgery, you'll look back and see what a first rate pansy you were and if you still have control of your digits, you will be able to compose.

Even if you can't they have voice activated composition programs now. You'll be ok.

Blamchowder responds:

Thanks for the morning laugh. I needed that.

Step one: Ignore Poniiboi.

Step two: Start looking through your old work and try to out-do yourself.
Try to immitate the work of something you admire,
Do something out of your comfort zone that requires learning something new.

Lemme know if any of that helps.
Artists block happens to the best of us.

Blamchowder responds:

That helped a lot. I figured out I needed to change up the style in which I write a little bit. It was def. out of my comfort zone. Thanks for the advice, I appreciate it!

I suppose you could watch Troy or Ironclad with the sound off and try and come up with a kickass musical score to accompany it.

You'll be fine. Just disregard what people expect of you and do your own thing. I believe in you.
