I had a phenomenal time at the Coffin Club this evening and met some wonderful people and had some wonderful conversations and experiences that will probably change the rest of my life . . . which experiences tend to do anyway. 🙂
I lost my phone however! And I hope to recover it tomorrow. 🙂⚰️🙃📱
I found this awesome recording of “A View To A Kill” on #Smule: https://www.smule.com/sing-recording/431877638_3967598367
I think that the algorithm could use some work there, Smule. My track was not very synced-up with the original vocalist, and I hope that’s obvious to everybody who listened to this. 🤣🤣🤣🤣 But it is a pretty neat system! I wonder what caused the lag. Maybe it’s something I can fix when I do it next time.
FYI, this is what is called music. (And art.) 🙂 Just a reminder. 💜 It seems like there is some confusion these days about what is music and what is simply rhythmic noise.
What is a song, after all? What makes a song a song? What is the essence of the song? I think it’s just that thing out there that you appreciate for what it is and enjoy it!!! Or you don’t like it and you want it to go away. I do, anyway. I’m a very harsh music critic. I think it’s because my ears are so sensitive, delicate and fragile. 🙂 That’s part of it. But it’s also about how it strikes you. That’s what it comes down to, it seems; whatever we conceive of as “music appreciation” or “liking a song” is the intersection of your life, that moment you hear the song, and the multitude of things that begat the songwriter’s product.
