I've got a story to tell.
In 2019, I got to play some live shows with a band (not my band; I've never been in band). This wasn't just any show. There were scouts from some major record labels there. I'm not gonna say which ones. I did great, and I was even called back for an encore (in which we just played covers). After I was done, I had five scouts waiting to talk to me. I talked to all of them, and they all wanted the same thing: to buy my songs and employ me as a songwriter.
Why’d I let y’all talk me into this? We’ll never know. I’ll just say you twisted my arm.
To the people that wanted to see this, @Hungry Hungry Supermodels @BillieMyLove, prepare for disappointment.
Disclaimer: pretty explicit, raunchy, very weird
Alright, that’s one that I just came up with. (I wanna go teach that to a bunch of little kids whenever I get done typing this stuff; that is hilarious). Here’s the original. It’s terrible.
I need someone(s) to look at this and help me fix my problems. Here it is.
My main problem is the fucking time change and making it sound fluid. It's kinda choppy, and it kinda disrupts the flow. Someone tell me what I need to do to make it better. (I hate writing in 6/4, but then 7/4 just makes it so much worse. The things you do for music 🙄). I've tried finding the beat division that would make it equivalent to 4/4, stretching the rhythm to adjust to 7/4, and then speeding up the tempo to
Don't read this.
I have not slept in two days, my eyes are burning, I've watched all three of the Bridget Jones movies twice, and I'm too caffeinated to care.
Today's been good so far. I've drank seven cups of coffee (I almost hate it more than alcohol, and I loathe the taste of alcohol).
My girlfriend and I made a bet that whoever stays up the longest get $50 (the loser has to watch Love Actually). I may have employed some underhanded tactics, but when she wakes up she owe
I started working on this tango, and I'm proud of it. It's a work-in-progress, but I'll share it anyways.
(Also, if you've got a better title, please suggest it. I like the simplicity of "Tango in A Minor", but I want something more creative).
Aside from shitty love songs, I actually make real music. This is always the stuff I'm most proud of.
If you actually read this shit, and you've got any questions, comments, suggestions, etc., go ahead and sp
And now, a break from shoving my shitty songs down your throats. (Not that anyone reads these anways).
Also, if anyone gets the reference in my title, then you've got my respect.
Green Day isn't the Network.
The Network is from Switzerland (that's the narrative now, right?). Green Day is from California. How could they be the same band? Hell, The Network doesn't even speak English (unless you count the two albums they recorded in English).
So, I fixed MDWAISS, but then I got writers block. All I need is a second verse, but I can't come up with it.
To make matters worse, I woke up with a lovely little melody in my head. As opposed to quickly writing it down, I decided to eat food (fucking idiot). After I ate, I realized that I totally forgot it.
In short, fml. I'm gonna go slam my head against a wall until I remember that damned melody.
Harken ye, inspiration has struck!
I can now fix my song MDWAISS, but it's gonna be... blue.
And it's gonna look super weird written down.
But it's gonna be the best damn song I've ever written (and the most embarrassing, but not in a bad way).
So about an hour ago I decided to start a Green Day fan account on Instagram. It's something I've been thinking about doing for a while, since I'm such a big fan of Green Day. I also follow a few Green Day fan accounts on my personal account so I thought, why not give it a try? I'm hoping this account becomes pretty popular, but even if I only get a few followers, it will still be nice to just chat with fellow Green Day fans. So far I only have like 5 followers, but that's not surprising because
So some of you might remember that I shared my 8-bit versions of Father of All and Fire Ready Aim on here around 6-7 months ago. And you liked them, and the ratings on YouTube were good as well, so over the last two months I recreated the entire new album in 8-bit. Well, actually I did almost all of them the week after the release and two of them yesterday and today lol
If you want to listen to the playlist, here it is:
This was literally the last thing I expected.
One of my favourite Green Day songs. I love reading comments that say "please play it live"
Juliet's trying to find out what she wants but she don't know
Experience has got her down
I had a hard time trying to decide if I post this here or another place of the forum. But here seems more appropiate, because this be LONG. I've been digesting the new record since the first leak, and trying to understand why Green Day did this as it is. First thoughs were around the "classic" experimentation and eclectic sound, that at this point of their carreer, is the main rule. A lot of people were unimpress, or in the worst of cases, overreacting for the falsettos and that Billie Joe and c
So as we all know "Oh Yeah" just came out a couple hours ago, and I don't wanna make a single thread for every time a new song comes out, so I'm using this blog. If you guys don't know, I recently made 8-bit (and, by request, 16-bit) versions of "Father of All..." and "Fire, Ready, Aim", and many people seemed to like them. And now, "Oh Yeah!" has its own 8-bit remake as well!
yeah thats all, next post probably after the album is released
2009 for me ended with a broken promise: my parents were supposed to take me to my very first Green Day concert. We were already talking about tickets when they changed, well... actually a woman made them change their mind.
I failed my first year of high school, I had no friends and I preferred being alone in my room every day. They were worried so they decided to take me to a psychologist who told them I didn't deserve to go to that tour date.
Oh man, I was so mad about this. I was already
Howdy howdy GDC! It's been a minute since I've been here but I come with exciting news!
This year is my fifth year participating in Extra Life! If you don't know what that is, it is a gamer driven community raising donations for the Children's Miracle Network, benefiting the Children's Hospitals across the US. I have a goal of 250$ this and we just crossed 100$! It's a really great cause to be a part of if you're interested, and there are two wonderful opportunities available for donors!
Hi guys! I know I haven't been online in a bit, but I finally have some time to come online in between working four jobs and going through my move to the Unites States.
There is something I just wanted to vent about because it is something that is constantly on my mind, and I feel like writing about it would be therapeutic. There's no better place to do this than on my favourite website.
So, the truth: I never noticed how repulsive I am until recently.
In 2016/2017, I wa
I know you'll never read this.
It seems pathetic to be back in the same place, feeling the same things. A lot has changed, and yet so much has remained the same. And a lot has led me back to this place, once again.
I took a job with a youth group this summer. The job provided an opportunity to work with youth away from the nepotism and delegation of the Y. But I didn't choose this program for that sole reason.
I chose this program because it would require me to be back here for
Californian band Green Day hit prominence with a shudder in 2004 when they released the tour de force American Idiot. The snotty nosed personas were wiped clean and maturity was installed making Green Day a band to consider taking seriously once again. In their heyday smoking cannabis and writing songs about sexual frustrations, Green Day pummelled the status quo, crafting tracks which had the three chord structure but intelligently weaved lyrics.
The style was dishevelled but compelling. A
I posted this in the album thread a while ago but since I bothered to write 4,500 words about it, I decided to immortalise it here. My intepretations of every song on The Longshot's Love is for Losers, with doodles to go with them. These are all based on my own feelings and aren't necessarily correct.

The narrator has upset his lover, they’re giving him the silent treatment, he doesn’t really understand why or if there’s even a valid reason, but he’s promising it’ll be th
Kinda wish we still had the other subforums up so I could make a topic, but check it out yall- I finally got a band up and running.
We went into the studio 3 weeks back to record our first track (with this lineup, these guys have been going on and off for 2 years) and now its available for streaming. We did our first gig two weeks back, and have another coming up this weekend. Its been a hell of a ride. Gonna use this blog to keep yall updated on whats going on if anyones interested. Plu
