The grey seems to have sapped my creativity quite a lot recently. I must make a real effort to remedy that.Seasonal stagnation is not something I can afford to sink into. I’ve done it before and I know it’s a tough hole to climb out of.
I’m listening to CKDU, the local university radio station. “Ryan’s Stupid Radio Club for Jerks” is a surprisingly good show. All the music played so far has been enjoyable. You can listen to a live feed online if you wish.
I can’t tell you how much I enjoy vocals sung by people who can’t sing well by normal standards. Those songs seem far more real to me. Maybe it’s because of some secret hope that I could somehow make music that I like it so much.
World music is playing now on CKDU, and I think I’ll let that and a good book take me to sleep soon. I’ll be wishing you all a good night.
