This, You Can Build.



Build Me This....

Rot if there is rot,
or should i say....
if the roots are rotting.
For it seems the tree is dying.
You should tear the whole thing from the ground and rebuild.
Atleast that's what my father always taught me.
But this...
this still contains rot.
Lots and lots of rotting.
Build Me This.

We are mixing/finishing the next record this coming weekend.
I am excited/nervous/anticipatory.
But it seems no matter ow much we work on it there will always be
mistakes/and lots and lots of rot.
But i suppose perfection is not that at all.
Beauty is found in the mistakes (often).

If Leonardo da Vinci had a digital camera,
there would be no Mona Lisa.
Perfection is overrated.
Passion, and art, cannot be perfected.
If it's too smooth, too slick,
there's no friction, no traction,
there's nothing to grab hold.
Glides right through.
In one ear, out the other.
Not here.

Right on brotha, it's the edges that make feel the cuts and the cuts lets us know we bleed and when we bleed we feel. WE ALL WANT TO FEEL.

I have a new tree in my front yard and it is growing crooked as a tree can grow. All of my neighbors tell me to STAKE it and make it grow straight.

But why ? Why not let it be it's perfectly imperfect self. Which tree will you notice on my street all the straight one's or my crooked tree.

Power to the imperfect !

Peace Peace Peace !!!

Hello Boy!
I am delighted with his musical work and all its posture in such a personality!
I was presented with a unique music to your Modest Mouse, and many now want more and I can not find!
I found this blog, I think that using it can achieve them! I look back on my e-mail!
Oh before I forget, beautiful photos!
Strong hug. Success!
