I mean, it's only a pop song. How hard could it be? I could do it if I wanted to.

Music production like growing a garden. Shit in = fruits and vegetables and flowers.

I knew it was all in good fun. :)

it really can be deceptively difficult. there are some classic pop tunes that seem really straightforward, until you try and learn them (Buggles’ Video Killed the Radio Star comes to mind). there’s a lot to be said for being able to hide that much subtlety and complexity in a pop format.

This is one of the first lessons I learned (the hard way, as they say). I knew hits and masterpieces must be difficult just by observing their rarity. And if asked whether a pop song with an ordinary degree of listenability were difficult, I might have said yes, but I didn't know it in my bones. It's easy to grow up twiddling a radio tuner and bass and treble knobs and enthusiastically build a record collection and read "serious" but ultimately fan-oriented magazines and think you know more than you do. But actually try to do the thing and the scales fall from your eyes immediately. I read somewhere one reason many beginning composers give up so easily is that they have good taste and so they correctly believe their own early efforts are terrible because they are, but what they don't realize is that's normal and only a very few nearly inhuman geniuses show up and dazzle without a ton of effort.

U R my hero,

They was wrong

thoughts? we’re all stupid, which is why none of us are stupid. it’s all relative, my skin-smashing friend, and we’re all related. I may be an exception—I’ve got no rhythm.

also, killing is bad. even if they’re just heroes.
