68. “You Know What Makes A Song? Rhythm” (A Study on last minute songs at 2 am after a Pearl and the Beard show in DC)

DAY SIXTY-EIGHT.

It is so quiet.  So quiet.  It is raining and raining in DC tonight.  I am the only one awake at 2 in the morning in a large house over-looking a small street in Mt. Pleasant.

Pearl and the Beard just got home from playing a show in DC, and I needed to do a song.  So, right before we went to bed, we gathered around the mic.  Jeremy picked a topic randomly (secrets) and started beatboxing, and we were off.  One take.  One improv.  I can’t say that this actually means anything significant, or if it added to my knowledge of songwriting…though you coud say it was a study on rhythm: does rhythm make something a song?  However, it did make me grateful for friends willing to put up with my project whilst on the road.

Do you know this guy?  You should.  He’s awesome: The Bow Legged Gorilla.  He and Jeremy beatboxed when in Baltimore a while back: it was  pretty amazing.

I hope you are aright tonight… today.  Get lots of sleep nad dream peacefully.
