Tumblr really needs to fix how it handles multiple blogs on the same email.

I am thinking of starting over with a new tumblr for this one because it is a pain in the ass to promote it when interactions with other tumblrs shows up as my other blog. ugh

So, I have decided to make a little post about each of the songs on my new EP, Undusted Still every day, detailing how the song came to be and what it means. 

First up is “Person I Am.” In the past couple of months I have been interested in the concept of “world-weariness,” I even posted a poem about that last night. This song starts out describing that resigned feeling and the lies about not caring and that it will be easy to start over tomorrow. 

I feel like I have all of this terrible, ugly momentum pushing me along and that I can’t break free from it to act now that my desires have changed. Figuring this out doesn’t fix it. But, I need to change. Surely I’ll reach the end of this inertia before I reach the end of myself. Right?

Undusted Still

So, over the summer I wrote a 6-song acoustic pop-punk EP that I am now calling Undusted Still. I decided that I didn’t want to conflate it with the Cypriots folky-stuff, so I started uploading it to a soundcloud under the name Archivist. Recently, I rerecorded some vocal tracks and decided that I am pretty much done with trying to fix these songs, though I could probably do so forever. So, I’ve decided to put them on bandcamp. You can download the whole set for $5, or just get the earlier versions from my soundcloud. 

Consume!

Model of the Universe

TUESDAY: read a novel about “world-weariness”
How is this character’s ennui born
out of internal and external factors?
I find it hard to focus,
my thoughts pressed against the edge of a sphere and expanding
so I can never reach the center,
model of the universe.
That internal no longer exists.
He cries intermittently and I want to admire that.

Common modern folk music trope: I must
leave now or I am trapped, I am a self-exile.
Come to my hometown for me to sing along.



Wrote this instead of paying attention today. Thought it was serviceable.

I wrote this song walking back home from class one day this week. It’s simple, traditional, happy. Bah!

optimistic like you never fail
like you never fail
to be
and I’m just trying to hold where I am
to hold fast where I am
to me

and it’s raining
but the sun’s out
and I know that you remember how
shitty it feels to be cynical
and you should never wish it on yourself
but sometimes it doesn’t need help
so

oooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh

I apologize if I seem weighted down
with insecurity
I just want to ditch these bad ideas
that I string along with me
and I could bury them in tall grass
or in the holes I leave
when I start but never finish digging
at what it means to me

and you’re singing
but I’m still asleep
And I hope that you remember how
how shitty it feels to wake up alone
and I always did that to myself
and I never thought I needed help

ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh

I’ve been sort of obsessed with drawing circles in photoshop recently. I was working on a title card for a juggling video I’m making and messing with it resulted in this. Possibly Polyanimal album cover?
