I agree! Creativity shakes the nut out of the tree house ;)

I think in order for the human condition to be healthy & happy it has to creative (on some level).

Could be painting, could be music, could be the way you make your eggs in the morning...

I hear ya DS!

I've been in quite a few competitions similar to this, whether it was for music or drama and many of the competitions were highly biased and were more about a popularity contest than finding real talent.

But alas... I won some and lost some. And, one of my former bands was able to play at Summerfest in Milwaukee 2 years ago for that win. That was one of the coolest experiences I ever had playing in bands.

It would be nice to get into the top 3 in the competition but I'm not going to lose sleep over it. 

I'm more concerned with getting our band out there to be heard because I believe in us! 

I am inspired by the guys in the band, inspired by all the world events going on today, inspired by 12160, inspired by just living and because of this inspiration, I've got to write and create music.

And as I get older, I have to speak my mind through lyrics and let my heart do the singing. I am holding nothing back anymore. CARPE DIEM!

Rock on ~

I was in a band that was nominated one of the top 10 original bands in the state. (we did a few covers here & there, but when we did we owned them & made them *ours*)  ;)

We once did a band competition & lost to a band called, "Drunken Ego". (seriously, I am not making this up)

The drummer of 'Drunken Ego' had a kit sponsored by Budweiser (aka "brown water") that had Budweiser logos etched all over it.

Despite "originality" being one of the most stressed qualities judges were supposed to be looking out for; 'Drunken Ego' defeated us by playing "Guns 'N' Roses' covers.

We were pissed(and naive)

'Drunken Ego' had a lot more alcoholic friends than our band did

who slurped up way more drinks at the bar.

I think that was the turning point when I became a jaded human being.

Great... my band is right up there with 'sperm whale explosions.' I'm not sure whether to be horrified or honored quite honestly, LOL. Gotta love ole ning!

Shallow Waters

Shallow waters, you've been swimming

against the tide

listening to the so called saviors

all the time

Believe this way or believe in that

forgetting your own mind

made an ornate box to live in

to keep you safe inside


Open up your eyes

until you find some truth

you know you've been so blind

find your own paradise

Clinging to religious dogma

divided you

you forgot to look inside yourself

to think and choose

Men created all religions

to control

dominating and confusing

every soul

chorus – Solo – chorus - out
