Life Soundtrack #6: Freelance Fiend

Some ridiculously hot woman walking through a bar in slow motion. Everyone stops doing what they’re doing, looking up from the pool table, overfilling their beers, dropping the cigarettes out of their mouths. Classic.

Life Soundtrack #5: Plastic Jungle

Strutting, wearing sunglasses at night, everybody’s nodding at me as I walk by, like they approve. I dip my head slightly and look at them over my glasses and smile wryly. Then I strut on.

Life Soundtrack #4: What’s On Your Mind

I am staring intently at someone, but not seeing them at all. We are looking through each other. Now it’s nighttime. My world is full of old leaves, deeply pensive looks, and long, aimless walks along empty city streets. I see the people. I see them and they see me. We are not together though.

Yikes. This scene has become quite dramatic. As much as I love this song, and know that I do, it really bums me out sometimes.

Life Soundtrack #3: This Is Not The End

It’s my funeral, and every single person cries and sort of half-laughs, and shakes there head in a wry, knowing, manner, as if to say something pithy like “god bless you, you beautiful bastard, you.” Then they put their arms around each other and go grab a beer because, dammit, today is not a day to be sad. He wouldn’t have wanted it that way.

Life Soundtrack #2: Get Dancin’

I’m working in a cubicle, but I throw my hands up in despair, beaten down by the straight-laced, button-down world of corporate America. My chest puffed up in pride, I leave the office building (somewhere between striding purposefully and skipping gleefully) and dance through the streets of the financial district, picking up a quirky gang of like minded individuals as I go. Then at some preordained intersection, we burst out into a choreographed number that we all inexplicably know. We smile, laugh, and (you guessed it) GET DANCIN!!!!

Musical Pseudonyms

I like to pretend sometimes that I could be any sort of musician, at any point in time, in any genre, from this:

He sort of looks like Robert Duvall, right?

to this:

MANOWAR!!!!

With each genre, one of the more important things I would have to consider would be my stage name. According to this random generator, my names would be Max Cage or Ricky Ivory, both of which are just fannnnntastic. However, I’ve spent years fantasizing about this, so here’s what I’ve come up with so far, including both individuals and bands:

British Blues:

  1. Scorpion Gulch
  2. Augustus Bourne
  3. Plum Widget (Band)

Family-Style 70’s Funk Collective:

  1. Wonderfunk Lovejoy
  2. Kid Thunderfunk
  3. Sammy “‘Sam” Samson

R&B:

  1. Dario Delacroix

Dubstep:

  1. Rumpus Room
  2. Speaker Eater

Death Metal:

  1. Lawrence of a Rabies (Band)
Punk:
  1. Puke Ellington (Band)
Quiet, Introspective, Indie group who also love to photograph things with old cameras:
  1. The Leaflets (Band)
  2. Our Dreams, Their Stars (Band)
  3. We Three (Band)
  4. This, the Destination (Band)
Speakeasy Jazz Outfit:
  1. Mac “Chubby Fingers” Sweets
  2. Eddie “Trambone” Reese
  3. Freddie “Fat Foot” Thorne
  4. Stumpy Foxx

And please, if you like any of these, you think you could improve them, you have some of your own, or if your given name is on this list, please don’t hesitate to chime in!

Life Soundtrack #1: Follow That Sound

Picking up a hitchhiker who has nothing but a guitar outside of some dirty prison in the Arizona desert. Also, one or both of us is wearing a denim jacket. Screw it, we’re both only wearing denim. Also, the radio must have an actual dial that goes left the right, horizontally, as you turn it. We should probably run out of gas somewhere and have to walk a great distance, just to complete this fantasy.

Oh oh oh!!! Tom Waits is here somewhere, also!!!
