so i'm sitting here at 3 am, and i just thought of an idea.
i'm in a band (http://www.myspace.com/myfutureself
, so you know what i sound like) and i have been bored with my usual routine of think of tunes, think of some words, fiddle with guitar, fiddle with mandolin, hit things, butcher harmonica parts, etc. not to mention the lack of variety when i'm the only member of my little band!!
so, rather than soliciting my musician friends (who are awesome, but not as diverse as they could be -- and musicians tend to think alike), i've come up with the idea of asking craftsters for help.
if you like to write poetry/lyrics/short stories/novels, draw, paint, make collages -- really, whatever you like to do, show it to me. i just wanna be inspired by everything. writing about my own life and me, me, me gets old real quick. i'd like to make an entire album of songs based on other people's material.
i don't really have any requirements or anything. just as long as its quality work (of course i have very few doubts that it would be) and you are willing to let me use it with artistic freedom (with some conditions, if you please) then i want, need, and would LOVE to include it.
if i end up using any of your work, you'll get the credit.
i'm envisioning this as a project about people, above all. i want to break out of my little box. i want this to be the music version of learningtoloveyoumo
re.com. (well, that's pretty ambitious, but ya know..)
so if you can contribute in any way, speak up!!! i want a taste of it all!
