QotD: Biggest Obstacle in the Last 24 Hours

What’s the biggest obstacle you’ve had to overcome within the last 24 hours?

Keepin her off my mind.

That’s been the answer to this question for a long damn time.

Here’s a lovely, sexy song just for the hell of it. Played in seven part-time (hence its name). Wtf?

    what's the "Wtf" referring to?

  2. 06/16/2009 at 6:44 pm

    that's crazy. there's no good reason to write in 7 part time except that you can and you're showing off.

    Wtf refers to the timing. And why would it only be for showing off and not for, say, attempting to create unique and unconventional music or attempting something challenging?

    aw, c'mon, it wasn't a criticism, it was a joke. nobody writes in that time signature because it's easy to sing to or to listen to. very few people who have mastered music well enough to do that effectively ever actually do it and perform it, yet Dave's done it more than once and managed to make it accessible to the …common masses. his showing off isn't necessarily a bad thing…you're such a fanboy. 😛

    I think I was more confused than I was defending. But you got me. And he's done it more than once? I was unaware.

    sorry, it didn't translate well into writing.anyway, i don't know about this particular time signature, but he seems to mess around with odd-ish sorts of meters. his music is sometimes complicated.

    Your face doesn't translate into writing… :0And yeah, they have some funky rhythms for sure.

    it's ok, John. i'm not afraid of you anymore. i know you love me. ha! 😛

    in my happy world, i like to imagine that Dave is a fan of Damien Rice. it just feels right.

  10. 06/18/2009 at 2:34 pm

    Ummm, alright…Care to share why?

  11. 06/18/2009 at 10:07 pm

    well, i said "it just feels right".but as for a scientific reason… their music's not necessarily alike, but i think Damien's music is something that Dave would get. it's gritty, it's in-your-face, it's sensitive, insightful, intense. i feel like their outlooks on life are compatible enough that they could be able to have a deep appreciation for each other's style. i mean, i don't know if they even know about each other or like each other, but like i said, in my happy world…

  12. 06/19/2009 at 4:23 pm

    I'm afraid I am not familiar with Damien's music. So I can really make the comparison. But yeah, Dave is gritty, sensitive, insightful. I would call him very carnal, very sensuous, like any great poet. Love, sex, drugs are common themes in his lyrics. The other common theme is death and with that a "seize the day" mentality. But I guess I'm still wondering why, in your happy world, they would know about and appreciate each others work? Why would that be desirable?

    Should read, "So I CAN'T really make the comparison." Stupid uneditable posts.

    you should listen to some Damien Rice. Especially the song 9 Crimes. maybe i'll post it on my blog. everything you said about Dave, you could say about Damien. he's Irish, so he has that celtic sort of sense, though not a celtic sound.i don't know why it's desirable! maybe because Dave seems to me to be someone that doesn't let a lot of the outside world in. he seems aloof and not really interested that much in other people. but whenever i hear Damien Rice, i think of DMB, for some reason, and think that it'd be a high compliment to Damien if Dave were a fan. i don't know, John, it's not very important; it just would be something i'd be interested to hear, if i ever heard that. i think about stupid stuff like this. also, the more i compare and contrast the two of them, the more fascinated i am with how similar they are as artists, yet still so individual and unique. i've never really heard of them being put together in any kind of critical consideration, but i think they should be, now.
