Creativity is messy

Fabulous letter – of admission – creativity is messy. I know – just back from attempting to record WAABM debut album – and the ‘title’ track drove us not only up the walls – but the colliding 2 styles – proved – irreconcilable. So we did a ‘rewrite’ of the song – found a new direction and took 5 days off.

We were spent.

As a good friend said:

These things take time.

_______

So encouraging you to NOT COMPROMISE. Better be as you want – then try to be a crowd-pleaser or worst – succumb to perceived (usually false) perception of anticipation.

20 Years ago

I remember – when we ‘upgraded’ to Netscape (and proudly own a ‘hard’ copy).. don’t recall which browser we were using prior in ’95. I recall vividly Bill infamous: "I don’t believe in the Internet" and the big ensuing vicious attack by M$.

Epic and devastating.
