Working it out of my system in song form...

Postby Mawkish1983 » Wed Jun 17, 2009 1:02 pm

I've uploaded a (rather un-skillful) song I just wrote to http://www.myspace.com/mawkish1983

The song is called "Searching for some other truth". I'm hoping that'll get it out of my system :)

Greetings Mawkish,

Pfft... Myspace.

Can you post us some lyrics? :reading:

Metta,
Retro. :)

It is a more skillful approach that trying to convert your Christian friends, imo.

With Metta,

Four types of letting go:

1) Giving; expecting nothing back in return
2) Throwing things away
3) Contentment; wanting to be here, not wanting to be anywhere else
4) "Teflon Mind"; having a mind which doesn't accumulate things

- Ajahn Brahm

(I quite like Type 0 Negative :embarassed: )

Aaaaanyway, I've uploaded a slightly altered version of the song "Searching for some other truth"... and I don't know which version is better (The old one or the new one)... so I've put both of the tracks on my MySpace page and I'm asking people to vote for which is the least-rubbish!

So, the link is http://www.myspace.com/mawkish1983 and the tracks are titled "Searching" and "Searching [Newer]" (or something like that). I'll count votes however I receive them, so you can just reply to this thread with your vote if you like... or maybe I'll set up a poll? Naa, no point, not enough people are going to want to sit through about 9 minutes of my god-aweful music <laughs>

By the way, the small change was the addition of some piano harmony.

If anyone wants to take a listen and vote for which out of these two version of the same song is the least-crappy I'd appreciate it so much!

Thanks
