Gotta get the ball rollin'

Sometimes you just need to sit down and make yourself do what you need to do. Procrastination is such a phenomena in my life as I'm sure it is in everyone else's, and it's not easy for me to overcome. I'll know that I have something extremely important to do thats due the next day, and I'll wait until nine o'clock the night before to do it, even though I had all day. With music, it's a bit different. I virtually have all the time in the world to record my songs. I have all the equipment there, all that I need to do is get it out of my drawer, set it up and record. Wanting to give it my all and really make it something good is whats difficult.
That is what I did today though, and what I've been trying to do for the last couple of days. I've ben recording bits and pieces of things but not an entire song. So, today I just said "alrite, that's it, I'm doing it" and I got it done.... for the most part. The song I recorded isn't what I would call spectacular but it's ok. Once I show it to my friends and we kick the s*@t out out it, it should sound pretty great.

Ok, I'll leave you with some more music you probably wont listen to and that you've never heard of, but its great, and here's Blur.

  1. Hey you! :P James, I totally know the procrastination pain you're going through. Don't trip! (laughs) Yeah, my procrastination problem has gotten even worse in college since there's no reprimanding by the teachers. Btw the title is PERFECT for the article. That's great that you're passionate for creating music, but try to take that same "drive" and put it also towards your schooling, work, or whatever. The pressure and overwhelming stress on finishing something last-minute is horrible and overall an unhealthy habit to get into. So keep up with those deadlines, and be prompt with them! Okay now that I'm done sounding like a mom....(laughs), you should post some of YOUR music up on these blogs! :D
