Write me a letter
Write it today
I’m goin’ away
Well, there’s nothin’ I can see
That’d ever make me
Want to be without her
She’s good, she good to me
I spent too much at Barnes & Noble yesterday.
True to Rockstar form, not only did I buy a new journal to write down lyrics and inspiration, but I bought a “Songwriters Journal,” too. You can keep track of chords, keys, verses, bridges…and Dave Grohl even contributed a quote in the sucker. SQUEEE!!!
I picked up a special edition of Alice In Wonderland for $10. OF COURSE I NEED THAT FOR SONGWRITING INSPIRATION!!! RIGHT?!?!
I also picked up a book about new findings regarding addiction. NPR recently interviewed Maia Szalavitz, author of Unbroken Brain, wherein she argues addiction as a developmental disorder as opposed to a conscious choice or chronic brain disease. Considering the prevalence of drug use throughout the years in the music scene…I figured this book was well worth mentioning. I imagine I’ll discuss it in more depth at some later point in time.
But for now…I’m goin’ away.
