I'm curious what these "chef awesome recipes!" are... I missed something somewhere.  :-)

Pete - yes - I know... that's the funny thing... I know.  I've been through it before - been through writers block, plowed through anyway, kept working. I know the highs, know the lows.  My lack of recording has become so long, so distant, and so over talked about - that it's become a joke I'm sure to everyone.  And I joke about how bad I am. 

I know what I need to do.  I know what I want to do.  I just need to ... do.

"His point of the work bringing ideas as it progresses is the primary one for me." <--- that.  Is perfect.  And I know that feeling well - or I used to.  I may have an inspiring moment - an image, a title, a sound that inspires something... but it's the working on it and letting it flow.  Working with it, changing it, and letting those new ideas in as I work on it.. that's what's truly exciting. 

The divine point of inspiration isn't the exciting thing for me - the working on it and continuing and evolving the music... that's what's wonderful. 

At least... it is on piano for me now - and it was when I recorded then.

Finally, back on topic !

John, I don't really know what to suggest, but from what I take from Chuck's quote is to just start on something and even if you don't think it's great, just keep adding to it / refining it. Take something from your piano improvs for example, and try some processing on them. Use loops, beats or whatever to get a really rough sketch down and then move onto another idea, you may find you like the first one more when you return to it. His point of the work bringing ideas as it progresses is the primary one for me.

Everything and Nothing / Robots and Donuts - the art of Eric Joyner
« Last post by jkn on September 19, 2014, 06:11:04 AM »
Many people know I have this crazy thing for robots - especially the iconic older tin toy robot "look".  While I don't own any classic tin toys... (and probably won't as they're crazy expensive even for many of the reproductions...) - I love the artwork and images of them.   Hey, I said I was crazy. 

So... I'd like to point out the wonderful artwork of Eric Joyner.  Who combines classic tin toy robots and ...  donuts.  And has been for quite some time now.  These are gorgeous paintings (not digital... actual paint here folks... :) 

Below are just a few of my favorites... there are so many more in his galleries.  Know of other "robot" artists?  (paint, pencil, or digital!) - let me know!

p.s.  I'm really happy to see things calming down and I commend Mike and APK... and Julio for offering the first apology.

I have to admit...  I'm suffering from that amateur view of waiting for inspiration... or rather - I'm waiting for the "right time" to record.

And there is no right time to record for me.  So I just have to do it. 

And I *know* better.  I've been around the block.  Many times now.  What is my problem? 

I need to stop asking myself why, and just do... and yet - I still don't "do". 

Hmmmm. 

is this a midlife crisis of sorts?

Let's forget all about this, indeed this went out of control and won't happen again. Sorry if I offended someone.

I'm not looking for trouble. And I don't want to spend my energy with virtual fights.

Cheers.

Your good Crepuscule.....apologies if I offended you.  By the way "Cosmic Fabric" was a great name and whatever you choose is cool, just thought Id mention it.
