where to start

video

It's 2:48 and it's beautiful outside, quite the contrary to what it was like the other day - cold and rainy. Fortunately, I had some errands to run, so I was able to enjoy this weather while it lasts. Usually, when I am on holiday I have the tendancy to stay inside the whole day, which can be good if it's raining, but when the weather is so nice, it's really better to be outside.

After finishing my errands, I decided to take the long way home because it was so nice and on the way I saw the oddest thing - a single, black shoe. It amazes me how anyone can lose a shoe. I didn't really take a good look at it, but it may have been a shoe belonging to a school uniform in which case I suppose the owner must have had it in his or her bag, hit a bump and there you go, a lonely shoe on the side of the road. Well, that is really the only plausible scenario I can think of at the moment, but there could be more. Let me know if you have some theories.

Well, today is the last day of 'silver' week, and tomorrow it's back to work. I am not sure what I will do tonight, but right now I am thinking a movie and maybe a bottle of wine would be a nice way to end it. Maybe after this I will head over to Geo and see what's there. If not I may just browse the site Gyao and see what they got to offer. Just to let you know, Gyao is free and from time to time there is some alright stuff although they remove it after a certain period, which can suck a little, but hey, it's free so you can't really complain.

It's 3:12, so I really should get going because I don't want to spend my whole afternoon writing and editing this blog since it could take forever, so let me say that today's song has been rolling around upstairs for quite some time, but still hasn't found a resting place. This version is a little slower than what it used to be, but it's still kind of nice. I guess you could call it bluesy, but maybe some of you would disagree. As most of my music, I tend to mix genres although generally I would classify my music style as rock. Anyway, let me know what you think, via the comment section below or by email,

don't turn away

It's 4:19 here in Japan. It's a little cold, and it looks like it's going to rain.

We are now in the middle of 'silver week', or at least, I think that's what people are calling it because most people have five days off, three national holidays plus the weekend. I spent most of today searching for viruses because there is something fishy going on with this computer although it's not the first time the computer has decided to take a vacation; maybe it knows, too, when the holidays are and wants to take a break and so is acting this way out of spite for me wanting to use it. I think though that it is time to format the computer, but first I need an external disk drive in order to properly back everything up because it would not be very good if I lost all my music and other pertinent information, no, not very good at all you see.

Anyway, about the song - there is really not much to say since it just came out of nowhere. Many of the songs that I intend to post here will really be only bits and pieces, hence the name for this blog. I figure that it may be better just to post everything and anything than to wait until the song is complete, as any song is really never complete. Therefore some of these songs may appear again in the future, especially those that interest me and merit more attention, in a more complete form, but the main purpose of this blog will be to keep a notebook, or a journal, if you will, of my music, and hopefully some of you out there may stumble across this blog one day and think, 'Hey, that's not too bad.' or maybe, 'Wow, that's awful.' But in any case, thank you for stopping by and thank you for listening.

Finally, I would like to invite your comments; you can leave one in the comment section here, or if you'd like you can send me an email at the following address:

It is now 4:43 and I really must get up now from in front of this box and maybe go outside before it starts to rain.

Cheers,
