Song per month – Light Side

Light Side – a twisted take on Dark Side by Tim Minchin. Jamming with my guitar, this idea got stuck in my head, so I wrote and recorded it as quick as I could. It’s not perfect, but then I hadn’t written down all the words. It might make more sense if you watch the original by Tim Minchin, which is way better than this “cover”.

In my list of 50 goals and plans for 2010 I wrote “6.1 Write an album’s-worth of new songs and record them by the end of the year” which I’m interpreting as one song per month. This is song number nine, which might make it the song for September, but “Future Luke”, which I wrote in September, specifically about my life in September, takes that slot.

Nine songs is a short album’s worth of music, so I’ll write 3 more by the end of the year.


Why I blog.

From an email I just wrote:

However, my blog really isn’t about numbers or even the readers. The
subtitle is “A place for Luke to share all his stuff” which means also
to share with the future me. If ever I need to find a photo to show
someone, of a place I’ve visited, or I need to find a video, or a
story, or anything I’ve produced online in the last two years, I just
search my blog. It is for me to keep track of things I’ve done, just
as much as it is for other people to see what I’ve done. There are
years of creative output and stories and places that I shared online
before this blog, but now I can’t find them online, or even on my hard
drive. To keep it all in one place is the main reason I keep doing
this. I just wish I’d kept up blogging from the first time I tried it
back in 2001.
