I'm Sam and I live in England. If I'm not on Tumblr I'm probably reading or writing or playing guitar or bass. I will however drop any of that to talk to you.

 

"There is one scene in the book where Gus goes to a gas station, and he tries to buy a pack of cigarettes because it’s the only way he can assert his own independence after becoming very sick. He [Ansel] did that scene so much justice, and he brought his all. It was midnight when we filmed it, and he just sat there and lost it for hours. I was just sort of in awe." - Shailene Woodley

Much ill.

I’ve come down with a virulent strain of manflu. My joints ache. My throat is tight, breathing is difficult. My coughing fits bend me in half with their ferocity. My head may explode.

And I’m at work.

The best things aren’t perfectly constructed. They aren’t illusions. They aren’t larger than life. They are life.

This was me when I first read Everything Leads To You. 
More people need to read that book.

Daniel Handler, AKA Lemony Snicket, gives love advice on twitter. (Part 1)

The last one though, hahaha.

Played 20 times

*grumble whinge moan*

I had a song idea at 2 in the morning, and I thought that maybe it would go places, so I recorded it so A) I wouldn’t forget it, and B) I could listen to it and try to come up with a vocal melody when my throat is less wrecked than it is now.

This is said riff. It’s not a song, there’s no structure, it’s 45 seconds long. It was recorded using the in-built mic in my mac as I couldn’t be arsed to get my recording gear out at 2am, and the tempo increases at the end because I noticed my laptop was at 2% battery. 

It’s not very good. 

Your reasoning is flawed, I worked with some terrible terrible musicians at college! I probably was one of them. The ones at uni were universally solid though. 
I get the feeling I don’t have much of a choice in the matter, so fiiiiiine, I’ll put it back up. *hurmph*

Funnily enough it was up for about five minutes before my mind started screaming, “no no no no no No no NO NO!” So yeah, it got taken down.
It was literally just a 45 second riff that I thought could develop into something more. And it’s pretty bad, tbh.

After working in Logic Pro for years the limitations of Garage Band are so freaking frustrating! 

Zero percent battery… I got to my charger at zero percent.
Let that be a lesson to you, kids, never record song ideas without your charger nearby.
