This is impromptu. Everything about this post goes against the grain. Everything goes against what we are taught in school. Be smart. Follow the process.
I’m here to shake that shit up.
I’m leading with my heart. The human being is complex. Our souls are complex… and they sure as eff don’t follow linear strategy.
It just makes sense to post now so you all just get a bonus post today. Hell, depending on where you’re at in the world this counts for tomorrow. Anyway, this one’s really spontaneous.
Everything happens for a reason. You and I put things out into the world subconsciously, allow the magic to happen and take what cards are dealt our way.
Here’s the spin…
Music has a very powerful way of channeling feelings, evoking emotion and setting the stage for what you’re in for. It can be scary. It can be wild. it can be whatever you want it to be. It’s the moment. It has no rules. There’s no meter. There are no right or wrong notes. Just go. Just play.
As I write this post the music keeps on flowing…
It’s almost like your “vibe attracts your tribe” extends to “the song is where you belong” – Music makes memories.
There was a reason I tuned in, Strombo. I didn’t know it at the time. I’d say you’d never know what that show did for me… but you just spoke to exactly what I was writing. I’d say that’s eerie, but that’s my whole point. Now you’ll read this and it’ll all make sense.
If you don’t already, go follow The Strombo Show. @thestromboshow on the socials… this guy’s been golden since I first got into music and I’d strongly encourage you to have a look and see what he’s crafting up.
Also, CBC Radio 2, on point with all of your programming and discovery of amazing music.
Toronto… you have a compelling argument…
Til next time… here’s the thing that started this all. Metric’s “Empty”. A song that represents 2006-2007 to a tee for me, my growing up and my dual struggle with finding myself, and pleasing the rest of the world’s expectations of what was to become of me. It was a song my girlfriend and I listened to in the car, and she was the first person that introduced me to Metric and I’ll forever be grateful for that. Thank you, Sarah.
Sleep well, loves.
