Be Careful What You Ask For, You MIght Just Get It.

I go into a studio in roughly a fortnights time to record some songs and I'm absolutely bricking it. I'm beginning to realise i'm distinctly disorganised regarding what I actually want to do in said studio. I also have the following recurring internal dialogue: "The songs are shit" "No they aren't, they're fine" "How would you know?" "C'mon, you've heard James Blunt, haven't you?" "He's a godawful tuneless twat!" "Exactly, everything's fine" "I want My Mum!!!" Not ideal. I mean, i've stood on stage with nothing but an acoustic guitar and a few sketchy songs to showcase my lack of talent and come through the other side unscathed, so what fear should a studio hold for me..................? Don't start me..............

James Blunt is a godawful tuneless twat. Good luck; I'm sure you'll show him and the Daniel Powters of the world that making a decent song requires more than an affected tremelo, a tearjerky backstory and the secret to making women melt. Although that last one may come in handy.

Thankyou for the kind words. Much appreciated.

Ah yes. The secret to making women melt. Never been privvy to that one, I must say. I'm about as charming as rabies at times.

Almost ANYONE making music, regardless of how poor it might be is better than James Blunt.

Who is Daniel Powters? Yet another of Jeff Buckleys(God Rest His Soul) worthless bastard offspring i presume.........

Daniel Powter Had A Bad Day (and if you haven't heard this song I strongly suggest that you thank your lucky stars).


I was going to make a tasteless joke about melting women and corrosive chemicals but perhaps I should be politically correct for a change. Making women melt usually takes a combination of money and charm. Unless said woman is a witch, in which (hah) case a cauldron of water will do just fine.

I'll take your word as gospel on Mr Powter and avoid him at all costs. I mean, did he not think of changing his name? Has he no shame or vanity?

As for the melting issue, i'm just going to settle for a bit of mild thawing on a certain person from my past. I'll let y'all know in due course..............
