This shall be my last foray into the world of Soundcloud, as it’s too damned expensive to get more than two hours worth of space and I’m sick of creating new accounts under false emails.
From Shel Silverstein’s Falling Up
Music by Nicolas D. Frantela
One thing that I do miss about unemployment was being able to take all day to record a song, instead of the rushing to do it after work. Another thing I miss about unemployment is all the interesting ways I save money to keep buying liquor (e.g. not buy food). Good times.
By Sam Cooke
Why is it we can never seem to do justice to our most cherished songs? Alas, I can not play any stringed instruments other than guitar and I only had a couple of hours to finish this. I always promise myself that I will return and record songs again when I don’t like the final outcome, but the truth is I think I just need more practice at them.
That being the case, this song has held a special significance to me for awhile (especially last year when I was both in a play, found a romance, lost a job, started this blog and then found a job), and I always feel its weight when listening to/playing/singing it. So is this rendition great? Naw, not by a long shot. Do I regret doing it? Not a chance.
Sometimes I have dreams where my stuffed animals are attending some sort of toy church, and my crocodile puppet is up at the pulpit, preaching. This is what he preachers.
In truth, my soundcloud account said I only had one minute left, so this is what I came up with to utilize all the free space I can get.
