City by Sabolitai

Yes indeed, the first release of the collaboration with my musical soulmates is out.
Sabolitai are:
Nick: synths, writes music, performs
Miho: vocals, piano, drums
Terri: writes words, melodies, the occasional drum machine thingie

Like most artists, we’re not great at categorising ourselves. On CDBaby, we said:

Quirky, electronic, synth-based alternative Japanese pop

Who did it?

Lyrics
the thrill
of rising
again
you’re fighting
your way
through the dark grey overhead
 
Look up and lift up
Come on and stay
And if you give up
Then no one, no one
Gives a damn
Light dawns slowly 
You can’t see the sky
But you know it’s there so
Look up
Lift up…
Your heart
will fill up
it’s time
to carry
yourself
moving forward
once again
Light dawns slowly 
You can’t see the sky
But you know it’s there so
Look up
Lift up…
 
Light dawns slowly 
You can’t see the sky
But you know it’s there so
Look up
Lift up…

#100wordhabit Writing

#100wordhabit-this was my ‘one of those days’ and it’s not over yet!

There’s a determined sabatoge-y feeling running grinning savagely under whatever your priorities are. The train to the key meeting is delayed. The communication lines crossed so that your compadre is where you’re supposed to be and you? You are somewhere else entirely. And so the traveling and walking and checking continue.

#100wordhabit – changing my great starter, bad finisher habits

I may have an opportunity to do something that I didn’t look for, wasn’t expecting, but if it happens it will change my life for the better, I’m not joining an MLM or going on a banana-only diet or anything like that.

Because I’m a great starter and a shitty finisher of personal projects, I’m documenting this process as I go. I’m writing in the framework of David Kadavy’s 100words a day project. It’s money-free, but costs time and attention and I think it will help exercise my writing muscle.

Hey, I got to 90!

So, this is the idea: up, do my ablutions, write my 100 words, research and write my newsletter, plan the art I’ll create for the newsletter, do all the things that are necessary to promote the newsletter, work on my artshop, etc etc. No, I won’t be able to do all of this in a 1 hour block in the morning. Yes, I have to schedule this so I get an hour of Japanese study, plus exercise. No, I’m not sure yet how I’ll do it.

But it’s so much fun to try!
