I turn around
Back and front
History trying to repeat itself
Future trying to influence
I force quit them both
I live in the present
I act and breathe in the present
All attempts on my person in time
Will be overthrown
And discarded with
Use it on almost everything.
Sometimes you can barely hear it – but it’s there.
An important little gadget.
2014 is coming to an end. Wether I like it or not, I usually look back a bit more when the year ends and come to various conclusions (like I shouldn’t have had that one-last-beer…). This year, one of the things I’ve learned and is a 100% certain about is that I sure as hell ain’t gonna be fattening no more frogs for snakes…
Recorded live in the kitchen – just me – no overdubs
There’s a new section in the menu called ‘IN THE ARSENAL‘.
I’ll be filling it up with photos of the various things I use to get stuff done while creating whatever it is I’m creating…
This first thing here is called a Kreuzwender (seriously, that’s what it says on the box). It’s five tremolo harps all put together and made by Hohner in Germany (hence Kreuzwender, I guess). It’s a marvelous little big thing that I’ve used a bunch of times.
You can now follow me on Facebook as well. Another way to catch up, hang around and see whatever I’m up to. There’s no end to the possibilities…! (The Cable Guy knows what’s happening).
So this here is now officially a blog page.
It’ll make it easier for me to do more of what I want (important stuff of course). Like publishing things I normally wouldn’t – things that don’t fit in the categories I’ve got in the menu so far (don’t ask me what ’cause I don’t have a clue yet (or maybe I do but don’t want to tell you).
It will also make it easier for you to follow whatever new things I put up. There’s a zillion ways you can follow a blog so I’ll leave it up to you to figure it out…
But, on a little more serious note, it’s kinda exciting. I can put up random photos, new snippets of music, random things and thoughts that infiltrate my vision and maybe things I like that I think you also should like (but, of cooourse you don’t have to – no – no – no – heaven forbid you should feel forced into liking something – noooo – free will is the thing here, amigos)
So to start things off… Here’s a cover of ‘Goodbye’ by Steve Earle I put out on Soundcloud today. It’s an excellent song and I tried to do it justice. I’ve actually listened to Emmylou Harris version a lot more, so if you haven’t heard that one you should check it out. It’s all about heartache and Mexico. Two things I know a thing or two about.
